Pilger: Africa Open for Plunder Now that Libya Has Fallen

“On 14 October, President Barack Obama announced he was sending United States special forces troops to Uganda to join the civil war there. In the next few months, US combat troops will be sent to South Sudan, Congo and Central African Republic. They will only “engage” for “self-defence”, says Obama, satirically. With Libya secured, an American invasion of the African continent is under way.”

Revealed – the capitalist network that runs the world

“The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York’s Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world’s transnational corporations (TNCs).”

Not quite: this is not a capitalist system, it’s a feudal oligarch system.  One must pay tribute to the money masters (the owners of the central banks) to use their funny money.  This is what the founders were fighting against from the get-go.

Divide and Conquer: Finding Common Ground in Common Sense

“The reason the liberal mainstream corporate media demonized the Tea Party is because it threatens the status quo.  The reason the conservative corporate mainstream media demonizes Occupy Wall Street is because it threatens the status quo.

“These are textbook divide and conquer strategies being used on the American people. Do not fall for it.  Yesterday I read a really interesting gallup poll that stated: “Not surprisingly, Americans who consider themselves supporters of the Occupy Wall Street movement (26% of all Americans) are more likely to blame Wall Street than the federal government for the nation’s economic problems. Supporters of the Tea Party movement (22% of Americans) are overwhelmingly likely to blame the government.” What is most compelling to me is that 26%+22% = 48% so basically almost a majority.

All we need to do is teach people that Washington D.C. and Wall Street are now the same corrupt entity. They are one gigantic rogue trader sucking the lifeblood out of America. If we can unite these forces, which I can say with certainty agree on the important issues, we can put an end to the status quo and free ourselves of this bondage.”

People need to understand that if corporations control the government, there is no difference between socialism and fascism, you wind up with the same people in charge.  It’s time to join together and take back the nation for everyone.

China Competing With IMF To Buy Europe

China makes ‘secret eurozone commitment’

“Chinese representatives at the Paris G20 finance gathering on Saturday had indicated that Beijing was willing to pump tens of billions into the eurozone to purchase infrastructure assets from debt-plagued nations.”

China has turned out to be a quick student of the monetary fraud game.

Primary Obama Now

Obama’s election was  a total cultural breakthrough for the united states.  But that says nothing about the man himself.  Who is he?  Why was goldman sachs his biggest campaign donor?  Why have so many of his policies been a seamless continuation of bush’s, or even worse?   How did a democratic president wind up putting wall street’s bad bets on the back of the US taxpayer?

Some people aren’t waiting for an answer, they’re moving on to known quantities, people who have demonstrated years of service to the public good.  They’re mounting a campaign to run real progressives against obama in the primaries.  Maybe they have it right.

US, Russia In Deadlock Over ABM’s in Europe

Russia has good reason to be concerned.   The US has repeatedly rebuffed offers of cooperation based on shared management of the ABM bases.  Why?  And really, what threat are Iranian missiles to europe.   ABM bases would be far more effective as part of a first strike nuclear strategy against russia.  To all appearances, the cold war never ended in washington.  But now they’re really playing with fire.

(Reuters) – A top Russian diplomat said on Wednesday that talks with the United States on missile defense had hit a “dead end,” and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov responded coolly to a gesture designed to allay the Kremlin’s concerns about U.S. plans.

The below article explains how ABM bases would be an essential part of a first strike strategy.  The stakes couldn’t be higher.

For almost half a century, the world’s most powerful nuclear states have been locked in a military stalemate known as mutual assured destruction (MAD). By the early 1960s, the nuclear arsenals of the United States and the Soviet Union had grown so large and sophisticated that neither country could entirely destroy the other’s retaliatory force by launching first, even with a surprise attack. Starting a nuclear war was therefore tantamount to committing suicide. … [but] the age of MAD is nearing an end. Today, for the first time in almost 50 years, the United States stands on the verge of attaining nuclear primacy. It will probably soon be possible for the United States to destroy the long-range nuclear arsenals of Russia or China with a first strike. This dramatic shift in the nuclear balance of power stems from a series of improvements in the United States’ nuclear systems, the precipitous decline of Russia’s arsenal, and the glacial pace of modernization of China’s nuclear forces. Unless Washington’s policies change or Moscow and Beijing take steps to increase the size and readiness of their forces, Russia and China — and the rest of the world — will live in the shadow of U.S. nuclear primacy for many years to come.
