Why America Hates and Despises Victims By Eric Zuesse

3 July 2014 — WashingtonsBlog

Here are photos of residents in southeastern Ukraine and of their homes that we bombed yesterday, and you see the corpses, and the grieving survivors. But Americans call them “terrorists,” even though these people never were that, and even though America is funding the terrorism against all the residents in southeastern Ukraine, to force them to either die or else flee, so that they won’t be able to vote in future Ukrainian elections, and so that the government we installed in a February coup in Kiev will stay installed, even if Ukraine becomes again a democracy. The residents in that region had voted overwhelmingly for the President whom we overthrew on February 22nd.

The Truth of Libya (Finally) Goes Mainstream By Eric Draitser

27 June 2014 — Stop Imperialism

99977More than three years after the US and its NATO allies unleashed an “intervention” and regime change in Libya, the US establishment admits they maybe have “got it wrong.” Naturally, there were many of us who were demonized endlessly for speaking out against that war, and against all those politicians, analysts, and “activists” on the left and right, who championed the “humanitarianism” of waging war on Libya.
