1.  “WikiLeaks founder drops ‘mass spying’ hint

He was a very skilled teen-age hacker, but he is not the money or power behind the founding of WLeaks.
Rogue CIA, Mossad, Soros crowd much more likely

What has WLeaks ever put out that has helped our cause of 911Truth? What the hell are they doing with the 260,000 State Dept cables.

When I asked Sibel Edmonds about my suspicions, including if she thought they could be using the cables for blackmail, she reponded, “Camusrebel: Very good questions, indeed”.

For all we know, brave souls in NEADS, FAA, NORAD, Secret Service and/or FBI have sent these posers “smoking gun” type bombshell material, only to be quietly murdered, material destroyed. It is possible.”

2.  ‘Now advocates on both sides of the issue say they expect the Obama administration to punt the decision until after the November midterm elections— when the controversial plan could do less damage to the political fortunes of endangered Democrats and might face less resistance on Capitol Hill.’

They weren’t ‘endangered’ when they first got in with a big majority, and in strong position to change course from that of the preceding administration. They’re looking for an excuse. Now it’s, ‘we risk losing too many seats if we push this approach now.’ After November, whether Democrat losses are few or many, the fact that Republicans have gained will the risk of further political fallout will then be the excuse for why they just can’t push for civilian trials for the suspects. This is the case that they want to be able to make to their party’s base, to keep the rank and file believing that they want to do the right thing but just can’t for reasons of practical politics.”

3.  “Taliban’s Time Horizon Longer Than Ours

Thus Obama’s plan makes no sense”

4.  “Runaway Defense Spending Not Winning Any Wars

Out of this titanic American power, no peace is being produced. Americans have, during the 65 years since the Second World War, been spending more than the military spending of all the rest of the world combined, with the avowed intention of pacification and global democracy.

It has fought wars or carried out military interventions in Korea, China (via Kuomintang mercenary forces and Tibetan tribesmen), Cuba (via exiles), Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Lebanon, Libya, Iraq (twice), Iran, Somalia, Afghanistan (twice), Pakistan (with drones and special forces), Nicaragua (via “Contras”), Grenada, Panama, Dominican Republic, Sudan, and Kosovo (with NATO). It has also been involved with coups in Guatemala, Chile, Greece, and elsewhere. There probably are more, but this is what I recall.

My list, incomplete or otherwise, is not offered in indignation. Some of this was justified, most not; some has to be seen in the context of the times. The point of the list is a fact that no one seems to understand: Battles were won, but not a single war was won by the United States. There is not one victory (except as noted below), and not one of the interventions had a positive outcome except in Kosovo. The sole clear-cut military victories were in Grenada over a Cuban construction crew, and in Panama, where 500 civilians (the UN estimate) were killed in order to seize President Manuel Noriega and put him into a Miami jail cell. He has now served his term.”

6.  “BP Had the Technology to Accurately Measure Amount of Oil Leaking into the Gulf 2 Years Ago

7.  “Media Disinformation: The Demonization of Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez”

8.  “Dying Detroit”:: The Impacts of Globalization. Social Decay and Destruction of an Entire Urban Area

The productive forces in society—natural resources, technology, the creativity and knowledge of the people—are all held back and constrained, by the private and exploitative nature of capitalism. They are fettered by the need of capital to constantly produce for profit—not to meet the needs of the people.

This basic rule of capitalism—that the whole point of production is to make profit—means that people are treated as things to be used or tossed aside. It means the system considers thousands of Black people, especially the youth, as just so much surplus that can’t be profitably employed. It means the system, through its armed enforcers, must come down with even more repression against this socially combustible and potentially rebellious section of society. And it means poisonous ideological assaults that justify such attacks and blame the people for the oppressive situation the system has put them in.”
