The idea that many 'terrorist' attacks are in fact carried out by government intelligence agencies is not a new concept. What is new is the idea that these government-inspired or perpetrated terrorist attacks are somehow doubly "fake" in the sense that some or all of the details of the attack didn't actually happen in any real sense

When a people that have been dispossessed of their land, livelihoods and homes, periodically murdered and regularly terrorized, take action to resist and defend themselves, they are guilty of nothing but standing up for their human rights and their rights under international law.

The myth of America and 'the American dream', as promoted by politicians and media pundits, etc., has been very effective in buffering the average American against the truth of what America has been and is today.

The hypocrisy and lies around the alleged death of Gaddafi have gone too far, for me at least. I find it hard to stomach the statements by Western leaders about Gaddafi's "crimes' as they gloat over the televised brutal murder of some guy in Libya.

France is in danger. To be more specific, its soul is in danger - but that's surely about the gravest danger of all. This danger has come primarily from its custodians - its government, and the current philosophical underpinnings of that government.

The problem with France's anti-sect laws is that they provide for the establishment of state-sponsored 'inquisition-like' groups tasked with 'preventing and repressing so-called 'cultic movements'.
SHARE Sunday, August 14, 2011 Who Started The London Riots?
When state "security' forces murder a citizen in cold blood in broad daylight, and members of his community vent their anger in the only way they know how, who's to blame for the fallout? The British government and the mainstream media would like us to believe that it's the victim and members of his community...

Let's not kid ourselves, when just about every "revolution' (not to mention many acts of terrorism) in Eastern Europe and the Middle East over the past 10 years has obviously been the work of the axis of evil spy agencies known as the CIA/Mossad/MI6, why would anyone be mad enough to think that what is going on in Syria right now is any different?

You're probably aware that yesterday, Sat. 7th May 2011, the US government released "new" videos of 'bin Laden' that they claimed were part of the haul from the 'compound' in Pakistan, which, by the way, is very conveniently scheduled for destruction. The problem is, these videos do not feature Osama bin Laden

As with most fabricated terror stories, the "Bin Laden is dead' tale is full of contradictions, half-truths and outright lies. The fact that the story was fabricated from whole cloth is seen in the fact that the story is now changing from the details that initially "emerged'.
Who precisely made the claim that "Osama' had a weapon and shot at US forces and that he used a woman as a human shield?
SHARE Sunday, January 2, 2011 Political Fisty-Cuffs - Humanity's Last Great Hope?
As the new year dawns, and we look at the state of our world and its human population, we find little cause for hope for the future. Wars, rumors of wars and suffering on an ever increasing scale seem to be the order of the day. The blame, of course, lies squarely with ourselves, the civilian population, not so much for anything we are doing but rather for what we, collectively, are not doing.

So Julian Assange is in prison, for now. There appears to be no case against him that any authority in their right mind would waste time on, unless the goal is to simply prolong the drama, which it may well be. Wikileaks leaks arrived on the scene at a very interesting time. In the US, unemployment at record levels (22% at least), massive numbers of foreclosures and $trillions of taxpayers money given to save the banks.

With the release of a third raft of Wiki-leaks documents and the response by most American politicians and media pundits, the public now has a significant amount of data with which to assess the validity (or otherwise) of what Wiki-leaks is doing, and the case appears to be clear; via the Wiki-leaks documents, the world has been offered an inside view of the extent of the pathology that has infected the American body politic.
