Henry A. Giroux | Youth in Revolt: The Plague of State-Sponsored Violence
Henry A. Giroux, Truthout: “As young people make diverse claims on the promise of a radical democracy, articulating what a fair and just world might be, they are increasingly met with forms of physical, ideological and structural violence…. What must be addressed in the most immediate sense is the threat the emerging police state in the United States poses not to just the young protesters occupying a number of American cities, but also the threat it poses to democracy itself.”

NATO States “Not Interested” In Cooperation With Russia

West ‘not interested’ in strategic projects with Russia Alexander Sotnichenko

The United States and EU’s criticism of the elections in Russia prompted more interest in alternative options for integration with Russia. I think that Russia could become a centre of the new integration process, if it creates a new integration strategy based on the common past of the CIS states and common threats such as the West’s involvement in support of revolutions in the Middle East that could spread to the post-Soviet area.

It isn’t over until it is over. Of course, we are referring to Europe and its version of 1984. We find it profound that the bankers, politicians and bureaucrats of Europe can do what they have done with a straight face.

This BBC report says it all really, the arrogance of Empire. Thanks to Felicity Arbuthnot for directing me to this blatant example of the Imperial mindset warping the thinking of a no doubt otherwise intelligent person. Listen to how she browbeats the guy about her fucking visa! It’s outrageous. If I was religious I’d be saying ‘She knows not what she does’ but she does know. Continue reading this...

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon
A week ago Invisible Children released a video that was immediately picked up and promoted by every corporate news and entertainment outlet till it went “viral”.  Kony 2012 allegedly “promote awareness” of and contributes to the end of child soldiering in Africa.  But is that really what it’s about?  Is it, like the old Save Darfur war dance, another propaganda campaign to justify US intervention in Africa?

The “Lone Gunman” of Kandahar Province? “The Dehumanization of the Enemy” Engrained in the Behavior of US Soldiers… By Andy Dilks

14 March 2012 — Global Research

The official line for the atrocity carried out in Kandahar has now been clearly established: a US soldier went off base alone in the night and proceeded to kill 16 civilians in a nearby village before setting fire to the bodies. Condemned as “intentional murderers” by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the US government has announced the obligatory “rapid and thorough” investigation. Tensions were already inflamed over the burning of the Quran by American soldiers, and following on from the revelation of “kill teams” collecting body parts as “trophies” and the leaked footage of troops urinating on dead Afghans, there is much concern that the latest atrocity will escalate tensions and stretch even thinner an already fragile relationship between the occupying US Army and the local population.

NATO Proxies behind Syria Massacre by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

14 March, 2012 — Global ResearchPress TV

Interview with Professor Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, Montreal.

“There’s ample evidence from official statements from the Arab League observer mission, from the Israeli media, that there are terrorist organizations involved in killing civilians and this, in a very cynical mode, provides the justification for the so-called international community to blame Bashar al-Assad when in fact these civilian casualties were ordered by foreign forces.” (Michel Chossudovsky)
