Somalia: The Specter of Detrimental Trusteeship

20-11-2008 08:14

Somalia, invaded and occupied by Ethiopia with the encouragement of the
United States, is now to be reduced to a "trusteeship" of Addis Ababa, the
aggressor. "This is a case of putting the fox in charge of the barn so that
he may teach the chicken how to function in an orderly manner!" Those
Somalis that choose to recognize Ethiopia's authority will be targeted by
the resistance, deepening conflicts in that wounded society. That may be
Ethiopia's intention. "Ethiopia is set to discredit any vestige of
nationalist leadership and to spread violence and hate."

Obama's Intelligence Agenda

18-11-2008 18:24

While expectations may be high that the incoming Obama administration will
reverse many of the worst features of the Bush regime--from warrantless
wiretapping, illegal detention, torture, "targeted assassinations" and
preemptive war--now that the cheering has stopped, expect more of the same.

According to The Wall Street Journal [1], "President-elect Barack Obama is
unlikely to radically overhaul controversial Bush administration
intelligence policies, advisers say, an approach that is almost certain to
create tension within the Democratic Party."

Miscarriage of Justice: Who was behind the October 2002 Bali bombings?

14-11-2008 13:36

The 2002 Bali bomb attacks contributed to swaying Australian public opinion in favor of the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, while also weakening the anti-war protest movement. In the wake of the 2002 Bali attack, the Australian government "officially" joined the US-led "war on terrorism." It not only used the Bali bombings as a pretext to fully integrate the US-UK military axis, it also used the attacks as a pretext to implement drastic police measures including "ethnic profiling" directed against its own citizens.

This is the first part of a 4 part series detailing 8 questionable unquestionables- social paradigms that pass without question in mainstream discourse, but which are so utterly false that it only requires an inch of extra perspective to notice this.

Barack Obama- War Criminal in Waiting

12-11-2008 16:35

One astute observation made by a friend surrounding the US elections is that not voting for/being excited about Obama would be like not celebrating/being excited about Christmas. The analogy was actually more profound than intended, since not only are both events extravaganzas that bring people together, happen rarely, and make people feel good, they are also events whose founding principles have zero fundamental substance.
