U.S. Torture 33

If Hope Remains Dormant, Freedom Remains Elusive 

By ashiftinconsciousness

December 26, 2014 "ICH" - "ashiftinconsciousness" - Look at the things we teach our children: that it’s OK to do horrible things – just don’t get caught. 
Imagine someone was caught teaching their children it’s acceptable to torture, but not acceptable to talk about it because people would then hate you. That person’s children would be taken away. However, when the CIA tortures people for nothing more than the suspicion that they MIGHT have done something wrong (according to the “moral” code of the dominant war-machine culture) and corporate media complains about the people bringing up the issue instead of complaining about the torture itself, something is seriously wrong. We’re obviously being conditioned to accept violent, aberrant behavior and to exist in an amoral society. Is American exceptionalism merely American expressionism? Or American Impressionism? Corporate Media paint pictures of th…

MH 17 Mystery 33

Who shot down MH17 in Ukraine?A poker game may have begun over the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH 17 over eastern Ukraine in July. The incident was a turning point in Russia’s relations with Europe. The US brilliantly succeeded in whipping up anti-Russian sentiments in Europe and hustle a reluctant European Union into imposing sanctions against Moscow. It was a brilliant piece of coercive diplomacy insofar as Moscow had to defend against an avalanche of unsubstantiated accusations. However, any longtime observer would have felt that Washington and Moscow probably knew more than they divulged. Indeed, last week, just when it seemed that the international investigation being spearheaded by the Dutch (a  NATO country and close Cold-War ally of the US) is probably ending in a cover-up, Moscow has sprung a surprise by bringing up startling evidence that implicates the Ukrainian intelligence. Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has plainly questioned the integrity of the…

Anti Rusland Hetze

Beste Stan,

Een berichtje over een debat van de Max van der Stoel Stichting en de Stichting Ukraine
Today dat ik zojuist op mijn facebook-pagina postte:

Vorige maand organiseerde de Max van der Stoel Stichting in samenwerking met de
Stichting Ukraine Today een debat in de Nassaukerk (staatsliedenbuurt, 27 nov. Amsterdam)
onder de titel 'Wat is ons antwoord aan Poetin.' Van Stirum TV plaatste onlangs een verslag
van dit debat op youtube. Daar ben ik ze heel dankbaar voor, omdat het heel treffend
weergeeft hoe onze elite denkt over Rusland. Als Domela Nieuwenhuis nog kon spreken (de
reportage begint een blik op zijn standbeeld), had hij flink de kachel aangemaakt met de
sprekers van deze bijeenkomst. Deelnemers aan het debat zijn Roel van Duijn, voormalig
provo, politicus en zelfbenoemd Ruslanddeskundige; Michiel Servaes,
buitenlandwoordvoerder van de PvdA-fractie in de Tweede Kamer; Raymond van den
Boogaard, voormalig correspondent in Rusland voor NRC-Handelsblad; en Sofia Kornjenko,
een Ru…

Cold War Revisited

U.S. War Against Russia Is Now Against Hungary TooBy Eric Zuesse

December 26, 2014 "ICH" - Hungary has decided to align itself with Russia against the United States.

The Western Alliance is starting to fray, over the insistence by Barack Obama and the U.S. Congressto go to war against Russia.
This is called a ‘new cold war,’ but it’s actually already a hot war within Ukraine, immediately next door to Russia.
America’s plan to locate nuclear missiles there aimed against Russia has made stunning progress this year. The formerly neutral nation of Ukraine has now become officially anti-Russian. Because of theObama coup, Ukraine is suffering a civil war between the Ukrainian regime that Obama’s CIA and mercenaries installed in Kiev on 22 February 2014, versus the people in Ukraine’s far eastern districts, where the Ukrainian President whom Obama was overthrowing had received around 90% of all the votes that had been cast there, and so the newly installed Obama regime in Kiev in the w…
