The sorry spectacle of media coverage

When the U.S. invaded Iraq riding a pack of lies and monstrous manipulation, the entire U.S. elite, including major news services, academics, and politicians from both ‘sides’ of the spectrum, lined up to cheerlead and off they went to war. It was one of the most shameful chapters in the long history of shameful acts of U.S. imperial foreign policy.

What Lies Ahead for Libya By Prof. Johan Galtung

13 September 2011 — Global ResearchIPS

According to NATO, the final chapter of Gaddafi’s Libya is being written now. The scenario is very similar to the final chapter for Yugoslavia -Milosevic- for Afghanistan -Mullah Omar- Iraq -Saddam Hussein- and for the ‘War on Terror’ -bin Laden: eliminate The Bad Guy. In the future chapters of this neo-crusade, orthodox Christians will also be targeted, just as they were in the crusades from 1095-1291.

Census: US poverty rate rises… highest for 27 years

September 13, 2011 10:43:35 AM — Washington Post

[Masters of the Universe?]

News Alert: Census: U.S. poverty rate rises to 15.1 percent, number of uninsured Americans hits record high

The Census Bureau reports the number of Americans in poverty jumped to 15.1 percent in 2010, a 27-year high. About 46.2 million people, or nearly 1 in 6, were in poverty. That’s up from 43.6 million, or 14.3 percent, in 2009. It was the highest level since 1983.

The number of people lacking health insurance increased to 49.9 million, a new high after revisions were made to 2009 figures. Losses were due mostly to working-age Americans who lost employer-provided insurance in the weak economy.

9.11 with Samir Amin A Video Conference Moderated by Biju Mathew

13 September 2011 — MRZine

“Libya is something very different from what happened in Egypt and Tunisia.  It was not a pacific demonstration of people.  It was, from the very start, armed groups against other armed groups, the regime.  I’m not at all defending Gaddafi, but what is very specific of the case of Libya is that the so-called opposition, armed from the first minute, called NATO to their rescue.  The target here . . . is not only oil, because they already have control of this oil, but more importantly water, the immense water resources of Libya. . . .  And a third is to establish in Libya permanent US military bases, in order for AFRICOM, which is still based in Stuttgart, Germany, to be based in Africa.  That is a direct menace against Egypt, against Algeria, . . . and against the countries of the African Sahel.” — Samir Amin Continue reading
