Lê’s “Gangster” Not Just Another Immigration Memoir (tags)
Lê Thi Diem Thúy was brought to this country from Viet Nam by her father in 1978, when she was six, but her book “The Gangster We Are All Looking For,” honored this year by the San Diego Public Library and PBS as the 2011 “One Book, One San Diego,” isn’t your ordinary immigrant’s memoir. Presented as a novel — which allows Lê to tap her childhood for material without having to be bound by literal truth — “Gangster” is written in an almost poetic prose style, rich in nature imagery, characteristic of many Asian writers who learned English as a second language. Introducing, reading from and commenting on the book at the Public Library downtown on February 2, Lê gave a presentation touching on a lot of the issues raised in her book, including culture clashes, the role of the imagination and language as a force that can tear people apart as much as it can bring them together.

POLITICAL WITCH-HUNT IN THE PHILIPPINES (tags)

Drones: A slam-dunk weapons system or our ticket to hell? (tags)
"Whatever the short-term gains from introducing drone warfare in these past years, we are now locked into the 24/7 assassination trade - with the US's own set of non-suicide bombers on the job into eternity. This may pass for sanity in Washington, but it's surely helping to pave the road to hell. Haven't any of these folks ever seen a sci-fi film? Are none of them Terminator fans? Are they sure they want to open the way to unlimited robot war, keeping in mind that, if this is the latest game in town, it won't remain mainly an American one for long. And just wait until the first Iranian drone takes out the first Balochi guerrilla supported by American funds somewhere in Pakistan. Then let's see just what we think about the right of any nation to summarily execute its enemies - and anyone else in the vicinity - by drone. Is this actually what we Americans want to be known for? And if we let this happen, and General Atomics is working double or triple shifts to turn out ever more, ever-newer generations of robot warriors, while the nation suffers 10.2% unemployment, who exactly will think about shutting them down?
IMPERIALISM ITS RISE AND INEVITABLE COLLAPSE (tags)
“I was in the East End of London (a working-class quarter) yesterday I attended a meeting of the unemployed. I listened to the wild speeches, which were just a cry for ‘bread! bread!’ and on my way home I pondered over the scene and I became more than ever convinced of the importance of imperialism.... My cherished idea is a solution for the social problem, i.e., in order to save the ..........inhabitants of the United Kingdom from a bloody civil war, we colonial statesmen must acquire new lands to settle the surplus population, to provide new markets for the goods produced in the factories and mines. The Empire, as I have always said, is a bread and butter question. If you want to avoid civil war, you must become imperialists," quoted by Cecil Rhodes an English Stateman to a journalist in 1895. 1. V.I. Lenin, Imperialism the Highest Stage of Capitalism

The Communist Roots of Palestinian Terror (tags)
As the wall approaches, or rather as we speed recklessly toward it, it serves no purpose to analyse how a nation, trillions of dollars in debt, remains in a position to offer billions to its enemies and try and buy its way out of inevitable collapse. The buy-off strategy is not new, what is new however is that the offers are rejected – no amount of money could buy Kosovo from Serbia, what are a people without a heart or national identity? Condi Rice, with Israel’s whole-hearted support, today openly offered to buy-off Palestinians in the vain hope that western influence could be maintained in the region. For numerous reasons this strategy will also fail.

Pahayag ng Pesante-USA hinggil sa Nakatakdang Paghuhukom sa Kaso ni “Nicole” sa Dis.4 (tags)
Ngunit wala ito sa bokabularyo ng mga reaksyunaryo ang pagmamahal sa bayan. Lalo na sa mga namununo sa pangkating pasistang US-Arroyo. Dahil sa ito ay walang pagsidlan sa kawalanghiyaan at ang taning layon ay ipagbili ang bayan sa pinakamalaking halaga na kanilang mahuhuthot. Kitang-kita ito sa kanilang pagtatangol sa Imperyalismong US at sa mga kawal ng Amerika na lumapastangan sa isang Pilipina noong Nobyembre 2005. Sa halip na kampihan at ipagtanggol ang Pilipina, nilait, halos ipinagbili at inalipusta pa nila ang pamilya ng nagsakdal at lantarang kumampi sa apat na lapastangan. Ngayon, kahit ang hustisya ay binabalam dahil sa paglilipat ng desisyon mula Nobyembre 27 tungo ng Disyembre 4. Lubhang pinanabaki nila ang sambayanan sa hatol na nakabitin.
PAHAYAG NG PESANTE SA PAGHUHUKOM SA KASO NI NICOLE (tags)
“Walang Pinakamahalaga sa isang Banda kundi ang Kalayaan” Ito ang pahayag ni Ho Chi Minh na nagging gabay ng lahat ng makabayang Byetnames sa kanilang pakikibaka laban sa mananakop na Pranses at Amerikano. “ Aling pag-ibig pa ang hiigit kaya, sa pagkadalisay at pagkadakila, gaya ng pag-ibig sa sa sariling lupa, anung pag-ibig pa, wala na nga, wala.” Ito naman ang tula ni Andres Bonifacio na hanggang ngayon ay gumagabay sa mga makabayang Pilipino upang ipaglaban ang soberanya ng ating bayan. Ngunit wala ito sa bokabularyo ng mga reaksyunaryo lalo na sa mga namununo sa pangkating pasistang US-Arroyo. Dahil sa ito ay walang pagsidlan sa kawalanghiyaan at ang taning layon ay ipagbili ang bayan sa pinakamalaking halaga na kanilang mahuhuthot.
