De Westerse Terreur 74

Rory O'Connor: Not in Our TownWednesday 07 April 2010by: Laura Flanders | GRITtvA new report shows that U.S. soldiers tampered with the scene of the deaths of three women, including digging bullets out of the bodies, to cover up their involvement. Are the new procedures for the war under General McChrystal really minimizing civilian casualties, as they are supposed to?Joining us to discuss this story and more in today's news is Rory O'Connor, author of Shock Jocks: Hate Speech and Talk Radio. He's also on the board of a new organization, Not In Our Town, designed to fight back against hate groups.http://www.truthout.org/not-in-our-town-standing-against-hate-domestic-terrorism-video58362

Veteran of "Collateral Murder" Company Speaks Out WASHINGTON - April 9 - Josh Stieber, who is a former soldier of the “Collateral Murder” Company, says that the acts of brutality caught on film and recently released via Wikileaks are not isolated instances, but were commonplace during his tour of duty.



“A lot of my friends are in that video,” says Stieber. “After watching the video, I would definitely say that that is, nine times out of ten, the way things ended up. Killing was following military protocol. It was going along with the rules as they are.”



Stieber deployed to Baghdad with Bravo Company 2-16, whose members were involved in the incident captured in Wikileaks' “Collateral Murder” video, which has made international headlines by depicting a July 2007 shooting incident outside of Baghdad in which over a dozen people, including two Reuters employees, were killed. Although he was not present at the scene of the video, he knows those who were involved and…

Het Slakje

Lech Kaczynski, een benepen en tirannieke kleinburger die de dood van 95 medemensen op zijn geweten heeft.
De Volkskrant bericht:

Dichte mist
Alle 96 inzittenden kwamen om bij de crash. Het toestel had enkele bomen geraakt toen het probeerde te landen in dichte mist. De piloot en de Poolse president Lech Kaczynski hadden het dringende advies gekregen om te keren en te landen in de Wit-Russische stad Minsk, omdat het militaire vliegveld onvoldoende was uitgerust om vliegtuigen in dichte mist te ontvangen. Maar de piloot en het staatshoofd sloegen het advies in de wind.

De Poolse piloot zou ondanks de waarschuwing vier keer hebben geprobeerd te landen. De luchtverkeersleiding heeft niet het recht de landing van een Pools presidentieel toestel te weigeren.

Een Poolse luchtvaartexpert merkte op dat het de Poolse piloot waarschijnlijk aan de nodige vasthoudendheid heeft ontbroken. Hij herinnerde aan een incident in de zomer van 2008. Toen had een piloot een bevel van de president naast zich nee…

The Cover-Ups That ExplodedSaturday 10 April 2010by: Alexander Cockburn, t r u t h o u t | Op-Ed
(Photo: The U.S. Army; Edited: Lance Page /t r u t h o u t)The Pentagon is reeling after two lethal episodes uncovered by diligent journalism show trigger-happy U.S. Army helicopter pilots and U.S. Special Forces slaughtering civilians, then seeking to cover up their crimes.The World Wide Web was transfixed Monday when Wikileaks put up on YouTube a 38-minute video, along with a 17-minute edited version, taken from a U.S. Army Apache helicopter, one of two firing on a group of Iraqis in Baghdad at a street corner in July 2007. Twelve civilians died, including a Reuters photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen, 22, and a Reuters driver, Saeed Chmagh, 40.At a press conference in Washington, D.C., Wikileaks said it had got the footage from whistle-blowers in the military and had been able to break the encryption code. The Pentagon has confirmed the video is genuine.Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, the U.S. mil…

Israel als Schurkenstaat 103

Israel als enige democratie in het Midden-Oosten? De feiten:

Israel: operation media crackdown

Operation Cast Lead, Israel’s military offensive against the Gaza Strip, had an impact on the press. As regards its internal situation, Israel sank 47 places in the index to 93rd position. This nose-dive means it has lost its place at the head of the Middle Eastern countries, falling behind Kuwait (60th), United Arab Emirates (86th) and Lebanon (61st).

Israel has begun to use the same methods internally as it does outside its own territory. Reporters Without Borders registered five arrests of journalists, some of them completely illegal, and three cases of imprisonment. The military censorship applied to all the media is also posing a threat to journalists.

As regards its extraterritorial actions, Israel was ranked 150th. The toll of the war was very heavy. Around 20 journalists in the Gaza Strip were injured by the Israeli military forces and three were killed while covering the offensive.

Iran 327

http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/LB18Ak01.htmlThe case for an Israeli strike against Iran
By Spengler

The fact that Ha'aretz, Israel's left-leaning daily, found it necessary on February 17 to warn the Benjamin Netanyahu government not to attack Iran [1] strongly suggests that the option is on the table.

It seems clear that the administration of US President Barack Obama never will use force against Iran, despite the Iranian regime's open contempt for Washington and the international community. US Secretary of State Clinton this week responded with a direct "no" - not "all options are on the table" - when asked if America was planning a military strike.

During a February 16 visit to Saudi Arabia, Clinton talked about responses to Iran as if America had already decided that Iran was



developing nuclear weapons, something Tehran vigorously denies. Clinton was quoted as saying that the "evidence doesn'tsupport" Iran's claim it is pursuin…

Iraq: Seven Years of OccupationFriday 09 April 2010by: Raed Jarrar, t r u t h o u t | Op-Ed
An Iraqi man waits in line outside a government headquarters building for food supplies from a humanitarian-aid delivery in northern Iraq. (Photo: DVIDSHUB / Flickr)On April 9, 2003, exactly seven years ago, Baghdad fell under the US-led occupation. Baghdad did not fall in 21 days, though; it fell after 13 years of wars, bombings and economic sanctions. Millions of Iraqis, including myself, watched our country die slowly before our eyes in those 13 years. So, when the invasion started in March of 2003, everyone knew it was the straw that would break the camel's back.I still remember the day of the fall of Baghdad very clearly, as if it happened yesterday. My family and I had fled to my uncle's home in southern Baghdad because our neighborhood, located near Baghdad's airport, was bombarded by US airplanes in the days before. I remember the first US tank rolling down the street with a …
