The greatest show on earth (tags)
"It takes considerable fragmentation in the media portrayal of these crimes and radical recontextualization as a 'struggle for democracy and human rights' for crimes of this magnitude, as well as their historical continuity, to become virtually invisible to the public. Although all of this is extensively documented, these crimes are virtually absent from the public consciousness."
Nord Stream as a reason for war (tags)
Only the blowing up of the Nord Stream pipelines ultimately cleared the way for the EU, and Germany in particular, to become long-term buyers of U.S. natural gas surpluses and to keep the price at a profitable level for U.S. fracked gas producers, even in the long term.

KPFK RADIO is essential to Pacifica, who also umbrellas KPFA that may be falling away (tags)
KPFK is the prime radio station of 5 in Pacifica. KPFA in Berkeley seems to be acting illegally or secretly to separate OUT and away from Pacifica with 1 faction hiding their moves. This is here a repost to inform those who want KPFK in LA to continue and not fall prey to tactics used at it's sister station. Beware non-transparent games even within 'non-profit' corporations owned by stakeholders [ funders, pledge $ givers].this could be a warning of what may also be gamed with KPFKs existence. Learn more and share it too.
KPFK and Pacifica still in morras, chaos, financial turmoil....why ? (tags)
KPFK is still losing money, begging daily and irritating all who have pledged $$$$ and are stakeholders who turn away from what seems endless fractionalized disorder. Some info from available sources aboyt how the problems also emanate from 'the above' organziation's sludging on without any honest improvements or doing real elections to show the way....or stop requiring payments to this nat'l office that is killing off any local gains or attempts to reduce, never stop, the infighting.

The American Nightmare: Vietnam (tags)
The number of killed adversaries-the body count-was made the most important criterion of military success. Identifying a dead Vietnamese as Vietcong was the general rule. In free fire zones, the US armed forces moved in a law-free space. The war was without fronts.

Protesting Colin Powell’s Deception (tags)
One of the principal co-conspirators in selling the Iraqi War was Colin Powell, the ex-U.S. Secretary of State. Few will ever forget his deception-filled speech before the UN, on Feb. 5, 2003, which helped launched the Neocon-inspired conflict. His own aide, Col. Lawrence Wilkinson, called it “a hoax on the American people.” Powell was in Baltimore on Dec. 5, 2006, to give a talk. Activists, led by the “Citizens for Peace” group, protested his gig.
WOT: Revolution in news will lead to overthrow of capitalist rule (tags)
The industrial revolution created the modern proletariat. The revolution in communications will allow this proletariat to make itself conscious and will lead to the overthrow of the system of bourgeois rule. For the first time in history, the majority of suffering humanity will have access to a clear, accurate and comprehensive class-based picture of what is wrong with the world and how to coordinate their actions in order to end bourgeois rule and usher in a world without hunger, privation or war. As decade rolls after decade, information war will transform the terrain of the class struggle -- including world culture, world politics and the left ecosystem which gives birth to revolutionary organizations. These nine theses are the second installment of "Seventeen Theses on the Destiny of the Revolution in Communications and the Concept of Workers' Rule". ...brought to you by the Weapon of Transparency channel...

The spiral of vengeance is not a solution!.. Perhaps a change will come in the US; perhaps questions will be raised soon.. The attack itself was retaliation for the US policy of the "big stick," retribution for the "new world order" that creates so much poverty.
Burning the American Flag because of What it Represents (tags)
The Senate will soon debate an amendment to ban flag-burning. As long as the U.S. flag represents a nation bent on dominating the world regardless of the human and economic costs, people both here and abroad will continue to burn it. Where there is oppressions there is always resistance.
On 9/11: Was the Asbestos-Laced World Trade Center "Disposable"? (tags)
Millions in the U.S. and worldwide now know there is evidence that 9/11 was an "inside job"; "false-flag," state-sponsored terrorism to provide a pretext for a premeditated war. But in exposing this evidence, the 9/11 Truth effort is also shedding light on a significant story-within-the-story: that the World Trade Center (WTC) was obsolete and asbestos-laced, and that its destruction on 9/11 may, for certain interests in the U.S., have been both desirable and profitable--independent of any interest in war.

Angry Mob Greets Colin Powell in Santa Barbara (tags)
Angry throngs bedecked in a dazzling array of costumes, sporting signs and guerrilla theatre regalia opposed Colin Powell on his self-serving speaking engagement where he waxed profound on general themes of leadership and barely mentioned his role in the lead up to the bloody Iraq war. Protesters were forcibly evicted by a coterie of muscle men as apparent supporters of the alleged war criminal chided them and Arlington Theatre $50 ticket price.
Offensive and Defensive Aggression: Herbert Marcuse (tags)
In this 1970 interview in the midst of the Vietnam aggression, Marcuse insists that affirmation of life is the distinction between offensive and defensive aggression. The phy-sician cutting off a leg and a pilot ordering passengers are defensive aggression.
Colin Powell's Selective Sense of Horror (tags)
The outgoing Secretary of State says he’s shaken and horrified by the tsunami’s destructive power, yet has nothing to say about the far greater destruction and death wreaked in Iraq by the U.S. military that he was so instrumental in sending over there. The difference isn’t the degree of destruction and death, it’s what caused it.

ROBERT FISK: An illegal and immoral war, betrayed by images that reveal our racism (tags)
First, our enemies created the suicide bomber. Now, we have our own digital suicide bomber, the camera. Just look at the way US army reservist Lynndie England holds the leash of the naked, bearded Iraqi. Take a close look at the leather strap, the pain on the prisoner's face. No sadistic movie could outdo the damage of this image. In September 2001, the planes smashed into the buildings; today, Lynndie smashes to pieces our entire morality with just one tug on the leash.

All you patriots My Lai = Samarra (tags)
The My Lai courts-martial are the stories of two tragedies growing out of American involvement in Viet Nam. One was the massacre by United States soldiers of as many as 500 unarmed civilians-- old men, women, children--in My Lai on the morning of March 16, 1968. The other was the cover-up of that massacre...
More Vietnam Atrocities (tags)
Nick Turse has done a great job in proving that the My Lai and Tiger Force atrocities were not isolated incidents, but he misses something important. For a guerrilla war to be successful against a superior military, popular support is necessary. Disappearances, hideous methods of torture, mutilations, severed heads on pikes, leftists pushed out of airplanes over the ocean and chainsaw dismemberments are a US counterinsurgency strategy to diminish popular support by mind-numbing brutality and intimidation-shock and awe.

Savage Intimidation (tags)
The My Lai massacre in Vietnam was not an isolated incident. As this article illustrates, it is a strategy of counterinsurgency warfare, which intends to eliminate popular support for guerrillas by "shock and awe." The US continues to organize and finance death squads and paramilitaries around the world who use this method. The starkest example is in Colombia, where paramilitaries are using chain saws to dismember peasant farmers who support the guerrillas.

John Chuckman is a Vietnam Veteran who now lives in Canada. "Not that there is no such thing as genuine terrorists. Of course, there are.

War is never safe. Standing in resistance to war is never safe either. Acting one's conscience requires moral courage and sacrifice. No soldier can know beforehand when enough will be enough, when she or he must dissent from what is clearly wrong.
What's So Bad About Israel? (tags)
Israel has pioneered the science of making life unlivable with as little violence as possible. The Palestinians are not merely provoked into reacting; they have no rational choice but to react. If they didn't, things would just get worse faster, with no hope of relief. Israel is an innovator in the search for a squeaky-clean sadism.
