Clinton: Iran Becoming a Military Dictatorship – AP Writer, MSNBC ; Globalist shill and warmongering neocon Hillary Clinton is trying to spin-up another lie about Iran in order to justify attacking the country. It takes a special kind of Cheneyesque liar to attempt to make that claim about Iran when you are secretary of state for a country that is completely run by the Military Industrial Complex. Especially considering what we are now doing in Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq (all of them are military dictatorships propped up by your tax dollars)
AFGHAN LEADERS CALL SURGE, “IMBECILIC AND TRAGIC” – Gordon Duff, Veterans Today ; “The word is out: Our “invasion” that combined Afghani forces with American and British has not gone after Taliban strongholds at all but rather attacked areas controlled by Karzai opponents who were ready to negotiate a legitimate government.” “Reports on operations are clear. We are managing to frighten, brutalize and anger hundreds of thousands of people who have nothing to do with the Taliban, not before anyway.”
What do Empires Do? – Michael Parenti, Common Dreams ; “the process whereby the dominant investor interests in one country bring to bear their economic and military power upon another nation or region in order to expropriate its land, labor, natural resources, capital, and markets-in such a manner as to enrich the investor interests.” “Empires impoverish whole populations and kill lots and lots of innocent people.” “The purpose of all this killing is to prevent alternative, independent, self-defining nations from emerging.”
US Rockets Kill 12 in Helmund Province – Jason Ditz, AntiWar ; “NATO officials confirmed today that an incident involving US troops has left at least 12 Afghan civilians killed. The US troops say they fired rockets at suspected militants, but missed and hit a crowd of civilians 300 meters away.”
Iraq’s Upcoming March “Elections: are a Sham – Jason Ditz, AntiWar ; “With Iraq’s largest secularist coalition formally suspending its campaign and announcing a boycott of the March 7 parliamentary election and protests among Sunnis hinting at a large-scale boycott, Iraq’s vote is becoming increasingly irrelevant to many.” The Sunnis are kicked out of the elections; the secularists are kicked out of the elections; the Kurds are kicked out of the elections. So only the Shi’ite religious Dawa Party of Prime Minister Maliki remains and that will guarantee our Puppet President Maliki will retain control of the “democracy” we set up in Iraq.
Spying for Dollars: Military Contractors and Security Firms Reap Huge Profits – Tom Burghardt, Global Research ; “However, as the World Socialist Web Site points out: “President Barack Obama has done nothing to reverse decades of wage stagnation, mounting poverty, and attacks on the social welfare system. On the contrary, following George W. Bush, he has seized on the crisis to redistribute wealth to a tiny financial elite through the ongoing bailout of the finance industry.”
Obama The War President – Helen Thomas, Information Clearing House ; “President Barack Obama does have a foreign policy. It’s called war.”
