‘Always Look on the Bright Side of War’ Part 1 of 2

I have spent the last week chewing on my fist, reading dozens of impassioned articles on alternative cyber media at the same time listening to contradictory and relentless government propaganda-laced (-saturated) mainstream media about the Ukraine situation.

I am trying to cope with my personal shock and awe. Read below the fold...

US to Crush Russian Gas Trade via Demonization & Fracking?

Thread: 

Glen Ford has a compelling, troubling and revelatory article over at Black Agenda Report entitled, “U.S. Prepares to Gas Russia Into Submission.” Now I’m thinking maybe we should bottom-line the Ukraine fiasco by archly suggesting, “It’s about the Russian energy exports, stupid!” The new militarist playbook in the Ukraine is really the same old militarist playbook from Iraq. Nothing to do with humanitarian concern for democracy. Money, money, money. Oil, oil, oil. Gas, gas, gas. Read below the fold...

Ukraine Regime Change-Faster Than A Speeding (Sniper) Bullet

What constitutes commitment of a citizen to a nation? Let’s say this particular United States nation.

Blind or myopic or passionate loyalty? Indifference to, numbness of or a profound lack of curiosity in whatever is going on with our tax dollars in the powerful hands of our elected representatives and their networks? Read below the fold...

Robert Parry: Latest US Govt/Media Demonization Game re Ukraine

Robert Parry writes in “Cheering a ‘Democratic’ Coup in Ukraine”:

There was always a measure of hypocrisy but Official Washington used to at least pretend to stand for “democracy,” rather than taking such obvious pleasure in destabilizing elected governments, encouraging riots, overturning constitutional systems and then praising violent putsches.

‘Regime Change’ Solidarity with Neo-Nazis of Ukraine! Hello???

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev last Monday:

“Frankly, the legitimacy of many governmental bodies is in doubt there,” ... “Treating masked men armed with Kalashnikov rifles, who are now circling Kiev, as a government – we would find it difficult working with such a government.”

Ends-Justify-Means, Craven US Strategy re Russia & Syria

I knew Obama was not sincere in any humanitarian intentions in Syria.

I knew Obama would not work with Russia to bring peace to Syria. Instead the Obama administration is doing all it can to demonize Russia re the Ukraine situation and re Sochi Olympics and the gay issue. The corporate media, of course, is obliging. Doing all it can also to discredit Russia.

Wrong-Side-of-History Obama’s UN Speech: 10 Issues

Obama’s speech to the UN on Tuesday was slick and creepy -- dangerously threatening at times, especially its rejection of any serious commitment to the basic UN charter, and hypocritically jingoistic at other times, particularly in rationalizing “military humanitarian intervention” and conflating US imperialism with benignly “stabilizing the globe.” Read below the fold...

Jesus vs. Obama

In his book, People of the Lie, Scott Peck maintains that the best way for us human beings to fight evil in our world is “to keep a gentle place of shelter for Jesus in our hearts.”

Jesus promoted love. Peace. Empathy. Good faith.

I resent when the pro-war corporate media labels us American citizens “war-weary.” As if we are and were okay with war but since there have been so many only NOW are we reluctant to have our country go to war. Read below the fold...

Obama as Global Anti-Community Organizer

This is the epitaph that James Petras writes in “dishonor” of Obama and his administration in his article: “The Obama Regime’s Military Metaphysics Rejects Diplomatic Opportunities”:

They fought the Wars

They lost

They turned friends


into enemies.



Who became



friends of our enemies.




They stood alone,

n splendid isolation,

Why Does Sociopathic Scum Rise to the Top?

The sociopaths rise to the top of power by clawing, bullying, intimidating, lying, charming, betraying their ways.
