Obama's Real Plan in Latin America (tags)
At first glance Obama seems to have softened U.S. policy toward Latin America, especially when compared to his predecessor. There has been no shortage of editorials praising Obama’s conciliatory approach while comparing it to FDR’s ”Good Neighbor” Latin American policy. It’s important to remember, however, that FDR’s vision of being neighborly meant that the U.S. would merely stop direct military interventions in Latin America, while reserving the right to create and prop up dictators, arm and train unpopular regional militaries, promote economic dominance through free trade and bank loans, conspire with right-wing groups, etc…
Doctors Without Borders Forced to Scale Back Gaza Operations (tags)
Israel's illegal policy ensures that those helping the Palestinians avert disaster are unable to do their work. There needs to be an immediate, world-wide boycott of all military and financial aid to Israel until this siege stops, and concrete steps are taken to create a viable Palestinian state. Our corrupt Government has betrayed Canadians on this issue, cannot justify their policy decisions, and must be forced to reverse this trend. Israel must be made to realize, in the most tangible (and peaceful) ways possible, that they cannot continue this collective punishment against Gazan Palestinians any more. But make no mistake, the ruling Extremists in Israel will keep pushing, so long as nobody speaks up or forces them to obey the law.
Iraq : Are there any Tears Left? (tags)
In the Inquisition-scale horrors, inflicted upon Iraq, since a month short of five years ago, the ghosts of the Western-imposed human cull over the previous thirteen years - from life's dawn, to those in its twilight - sometimes, very temporarily, briefly flicker and fade slightly, in the light of another immediate atrocity of enormity. They always return, as they must, in a sight, a scent, a phrase, a 'phone call. Reminders of sins of overwhelming enormity in high places, as Washington and Whitehall bleat about their infantile 'war on terror' and 'rogue states'.
Iraq: Looking Back: 'Internationally Sponsored Genocide' (tags)
As you know, when I was here in April/May 1992, I thought things could get no worse. Yet in July this year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations note in a Report: '..with deep regret', all the: 'pre-famine indicators being in place'. Further that an appreciable proportion of the population now had less calorific intake than the most famine stricken parts of Africa.

El Yo Dividido (tags)
A finales de los 60 se produjo una eclosión de perspectivas que actualmente están prácticamente desactivadas; ya no se habla de “pensamiento único”: las tasas de inflación, de crecimiento del PNB y de empleo y los rankings e influencia de las Bolsas nacionales parecen perfilar el contexto. Sin embargo, “El yo dividido” de Laing, mostraba que una paciente totalmente “animalizada” por el contexto, podría “desconstruirse” en una altamente creativa artista plástica. La obra de Laing presenta una nueva versión de “El Patito feo”, que tiene una cierta presencia en los ambientes contestatarios de la época, como mostraré más adelante, e incluso, unos años después, con el culebrón venezolano Bety la Fea.. Cenicienta ha tenido y tiene muchas versiones en los sueños y en los espectáculos de la actualidad y siempre se ha mantenido en vigor el sueño americano. Sin embargo ni los unos ni los otros tomamos el pragmatismo del cuento: la heroína de la obra mencionada de Laing salió de la bestialidad que le imponía lo establecido para transformarse en un ejemplo viviente de la posibilidad de otro mundo. El autor del artículo, a través de una carta que dirige a sus compañeros de proyecto trata de recuperar el potencial perdido porque no creemos en esos personajes y desaprovechamos la “moral del cuento”

Former Deputy assistant Secretary of State Reveals Lies (tags)
Excerpt: "The reason that I went public, the first thing that bothered me was [Halbitron] when Vice President Cheney was was given $35 million for all his knowledge in oil, which he had none of. He had been a former Secretary of Defense. Cheney had put in an embargo on Iraq and then he denied that he didn’t know anything about the embargo. They had violated the embargo by having a $75 million joint venture with Iraq. At that point I said, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me. Cheney was just outright lying."
