stopdrones.jpg image Pakistanis Rally Against [criminal] US Drone Strikes Aizaz Mohmand via jalal, Monday, Apr 25 2011, 12:30pm
Outraged Pakistanis are finally expressing opposition to the civilian killing US Drone campaign in the NW Frontier region of Pakistan. After numerous missile strikes against women, children and village leaders, the long suffering people of Pakistan have had enough of American MURDER portrayed in the Western media as legitimate warfare.

Injustice has turned to rage in many regions of the world, common PEOPLE in Muslim nations are aware that the US has no mandate from any organisation on the planet to MURDER CIVILIANS -- which it does almost daily with its imprecise, cowardly Drone weaponry.

text US atrocities reach all time high in Afghanistan Zia Sarhadi via dasha, Sunday, Apr 24 2011, 10:10am
The USA national debt is over fourteen (14) trillion dollars and counting. If you wonder where the money to fight America's criminal wars comes from just ask Ben Bernanke of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank and he'll euphemistically inform you that he prints it on demand from thin air -- nice trick Banksters!.

Until such time as China and Russia dump their dollar reserves in one giant unified action, they too indirectly support all America's criminal wars. The list grows from the Balkans through to Libya due to dollar support. Is there a better way to ensure world supremacy than by blackmailing (or corrupting) nations to trade in dollars while maintaining the unique ability to print as many as you wish? If YOU want peace then refuse to trade or deal in US dollars -- that simple!

Corporatist Western media constantly portrays a number of Libyan CIA lackeys screaming into cameras that Gaddafi "must go!" -- Western propagandists are careful to present these orchestrated images/frames as the popular sentiment or the majority opinion of Libyans when in fact the OPPOSITE is true.

Remember it's international CORPORATISTS, elite Bankers and CFR media magnates downplaying the RADIATION danger -- markets are more important to bankers and corporatists than human life and environmental sustainability. However, as history clearly records, slaves turn on their masters when the TRUTH (human expendability) and the weakness of overlords is EXPOSED! Are WE really scared or DUPED by these white-collar criminals? They are forced to contract us for ALL their needs, including 'PROTECTION' -- a very unwise and precarious situation for vulnerable, minority, ruling elites!

A senior United Nations representative on torture, Juan Mendez, issued a rare reprimand to the US government on Monday for failing to allow him to meet in private with Bradley Manning, the American soldier in solitary confinement, who is under investigation for the confidential data release to WikiLeaks. It is the kind of censure the UN normally reserves for authoritarian regimes around the world.

President Integrity and Sincerity image Obama’s [Wall Street's] Unconvincing Case on Libya Matthew Rothschild via stan, Tuesday, Mar 29 2011, 10:39pm
Wall Street fails to make case via puppet President Obama for the Libyan intervention. Performer/Liar Obama did not address the issue of his war making powers during his belated speech to the nation on the Libyan military intervention [because he does what he's told]. He also failed to distinguish between Libya and other cases of urgent humanitarian need, such as Syria, Yemen and Bahrain. And he didn’t adequately address the question of 'overextending' the military, or face the crying social needs on the home front. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text NATO moves against Libya -- Déjà vu Yugoslavia rad, Sunday, Mar 27 2011, 10:14pm
NATO is to take command of all international military operations over Libya, including air strikes on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's ground forces. [But remember NATO's track record in the Balkans and how they installed a KNOWN murdering criminal as the PM of illegally partitioned Kosovo. Libya is so far an exact repeat performance; an intervention based on fraudulent humanitarian grounds, supporting questionable 'rebels' and (soon) a strategic partition (if regime change fails) in order to appropriate valuable Oil resources and allow for a conduit to existing Mediterranean Oil ports. Brazen organised crime today is undertaken at State levels. The USA and NATO stand condemned while Russia and China stand mute and impotent!]

Yet another tectonic shift and earthquake this time around the Thai-Burma border. Had this quake hit in a heavily populated area it would have been devastating. But NOTE how the mass media is playing down these related events with brief reports lacking detail and without making obvious connections to recent tectonic activity on the Pacific Rim.
