Nine INNOCENT children savagely murdered image Afghanistan's My Lai/Haditha: An Atrocity to End the War Robert Dreyfuss via gan, Monday, Mar 12 2012, 9:01pm
Following routine bombings of wedding parties, hundreds killed in unchecked “night raids” by US Special Forces, the murders by the scandalous “kill team” in 2010, and, this year, the digitally recorded urination onto dead Afghans by Americans in uniform—not to mention the Koran burnings last month—it’s clear that there’s no hope of success for the “mission;” whatever that is?

Lackey idiot, Juliar Gillard! image Afghan Slaughter: Gillard Quick to Reassure her Washington Overlords suzie, Sunday, Mar 11 2012, 9:17pm
Washington doormat Juliar 'Carbon Sachs' Gillard -- soon to be former PM of Oz -- was quick to reassure her American masters that SHE is committed to HER mission in Afghanistan; perhaps she should ELABORATE or try to justify the presence of brave Aussie troops fighting filthy, illegal, civilian killing, AMERICAN wars for PROFIT in Afghanistan!

Global un-Intelligence image Stratfor: Blood On Their Hands Khadija Sharife via sal, Sunday, Mar 11 2012, 8:21am
Even if we were to place epistemological and ethical questions aside, certain Stratfor's analysts are turning out to be rather twisted creatures. While some turn party tricks for intelligence, except in AIDS-infested Africa, others, such as Fred Burton – a counter-terrorism and security expert, alleged to frequently service US intelligence, are a tad aggressive. One of Fred's gems include: "The owner is a peacenik. He needs his head dunked in a full toilet bowl at Gitmo." So much for niceties. (story and 3 images)

text The War on America jeff, Saturday, Mar 10 2012, 10:27am
The USA has enshrined in its Constitution safeguards that should have prevented it falling into totalitarianism; I refer to the right of the people to bear arms and the Constitutional power invested in the population to remove any government – by force if necessary -- that subverts the values and principles upon which the nation was founded.

Pepe Escobar, slightly hungover image Flights of Unreason sabre, Thursday, Mar 8 2012, 9:20pm
Gawd! First we had Chris Hedges 'tripping' on, orchestrated by the man to do nothing, the Occupy 'movement' -- the movement you have when you're not moving! Now we have once respected (and grounded, I thought) journalist, Pepe Escobar, tripping the light of unreason on corrupt Western lackey and Russian gangster, Vlad Putin!

criminalwars.jpg image US Army Suicides Increased by 80% after illegal Iraq Invasion Captain, Thursday, Mar 8 2012, 9:45am
A study published in the British Journal of Injury Prevention has revealed that US Army suicides increased by a staggering eighty percent after the US led invasion of Iraq! This is the highest increase over the shortest period ever recorded, and it says much about the human cost of fighting illegal, unjust DISHONOURABLE wars for CORPORATE PROFIT. It is a particularly sobering statistic in view of the rancid propaganda that Zionist Hollywood dishes out to the young, the latest of which is 'Act of Valour,' a transparent glamourisation of the US Navy Seals.

text Stratfor emails reveal Regime Change and NATO/US takeover Agenda for Syria Finian Cunningham via keir, Thursday, Mar 8 2012, 6:17am
The Western governments' and mainstream media’s narrative of a one-sided humanitarian crisis in Syria is rapidly unwinding to reveal a self-serving deception to justify a re-run of Libya-style NATO conquest. In reality, it is the Western powers and their Israeli and Arab henchmen who are fuelling a humanitarian crisis and creating the conditions for all-out war. All of which, it should be said, constitutes criminality comparable to Nazi Germany’s wars of aggression.

text It's About Social Control NOT Security trish, Wednesday, Mar 7 2012, 8:11pm
American politicians constantly warn of the al-Qaeda bogey man and the threat posed to the USA by these mysterious media enemies. US citizens have been stripped of all their 'inalienable' rights by recent indefinite detention and extra-judical assassintion 'laws.' Totalitarian social control measures are now characteristic in the USA but few seem to notice and even less are willing to fight for their rights.

text NATO/US Appointed Puppet Libyan Leader Vows to Use Force on Breakaway Regions Chris Stephen via weaver, Wednesday, Mar 7 2012, 7:55am
After US/NATO backed rebel forces desecrated WWII graves in Libya, demonstrating to the WORLD that NATO appointed puppet Libyan leader, Islamist, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, has no control over the country whatsoever, today's 'damage control announcement' that force would be used to prevent regions declaring autonomy is simply a prelude to a new DICTATORSHIP but with NATO and the US behind it! At least Gaddafi ruled a unified nation in peace -- now watch and learn the true nature of NATO and US interventions and the implementation of proxy dictatorships in Libya and in other conquered States and territories.

text China: Rise, Fall and Re-Emergence as a Global Power Prof. James Petras via reed, Wednesday, Mar 7 2012, 6:29am
The study of world power has been blighted by Eurocentric historians who have distorted and ignored the dominant role China played in the world economy between 1100 and 1800. John Hobson’s[1] brilliant historical survey of the world economy during this period provides an abundance of empirical data making the case for China ’s economic and technological superiority over Western civilization for the better part of a millennium prior to its conquest and decline in the 19th century.

anarchista2.jpg image It Pays to be 'ANONYMOUS' staff report via styx, Tuesday, Mar 6 2012, 10:45am
American hacker, Hector Xavier Monsegur, reputedly of LulzSec, whose NAME/identity has been plastered in every rag and digital journal around the globe -- goes down with other members of his group after FBI pressured him for the identities of other members -- offers of a lighter sentence were also used as inducements! Let it be a lesson to all the crewz; n-e-v-e-r reveal real identities to anyone; ANONYMITY is not just a label it is an IMPERATIVE, unless of course you wish to end up like Assange or the hapless LulzSec few.

Much in the same way as Obama won the US presidency and the majority of Americans lost, Putin is set for six years of more corruption and self-interest. ‘Left’ media outlets and journos are falling over themselves in joyful glee over Putin’s victory; Pepe Escobar could hardly contain himself on RT (video below) over the outcome of the Russian elections but the hard facts remain, corruption and self-interest rule Russia; you should follow the money straight to Wall St, American and European Banks – including, of course, Putin’s own wealth, most of which is in Western Banks and financial institutions, choke on some real facts you deluded, political clowns!

text Smartphones etc: DoD fighting losing battle against hackers and modern comms devices glech, Monday, Mar 5 2012, 9:27pm
As stated many times before, digital technology is a two-edged sword that is easily turned against corrupt States. The US Dept of Defense is attempting to enlist the services of hackers in its futile efforts to equal the digital skills of the elite underground, who control the 'wire.' The DoD's efforts are misplaced and far too late, as the ethics of elite hackers prevent them selling their services to criminal States and corrupt, murdering, corporate controlled governments.

We are Many -- we are ONE -- We are UNSTOPPABLE!
