UN TOURISTAH (MINUSTAH) troops dump deadly disease on Black Haiti then blames the victims "preexisting condition"!

Ezili Dantò’s Note:

Folks, Ezili’s HLLN needs your help.

Since October 2010 when the UN-imported cholera outbreak was unleashed we knew this new international and imported excrement would kill thousands upon thousands of innocent Haitians, destroy our Artibonite breadbasket further than Clinton’s Arkansa rice-dumping US policies, sweatshop/export economy and unfair trade already has.

Humanitarian Neo-colonialism: Framing Libya and Reframing War By F. William Engdahl

4 May 2011 — Global

Creative Destruction Part III

The most remarkable facet of NATO’s war against Libya is the fact that “world opinion,” that ever so nebulous thing, has accepted an act of overt military aggression against a sovereign country guilty of no violation of the UN Charter in an act of de facto neo-colonialism, a ‘humanitarian’ war in violation of basic precepts of the laws of nations.

‘What Matters Is What Works’: The State and the National Health Service in Scotland and Wales By Colin Leys

6 May 2011 — The Bullet Socialist Project • E-Bulletin No. 498

After forty years of ideological onslaught the very idea of ‘the state’ is close to joining others, such as ‘collective’ (not to mention ‘socialist,’ and even ‘left’), in the depository of Unclean Concepts. ‘State bad, private good’ may be a crude and simplistic slogan, but it is the very real starting-point of many politicians and most media commentators and BBC interviewers today, from John Humphrys down.
