25-07-2009 11:56

US military troops and bases around the world, 2002
The US bases deployed around the World bristle with an inventory of weapons whose worth is measured in the trillions and whose killing power could wipe out all life on earth several times over.

Hillary Clinton is a fascist

25-07-2009 11:33

The British mainstream news coverage of Honduras has been non-existent.

Global Power and Global Government

25-07-2009 00:59

Humanity is on the verge of entering into the most tumultuous period in our history. The prospects of a global depression, the likes of which have never been seen before; a truly global war, on a scale never before imagined; and societal collapse, for which nations of the world are building totalitarian police states to control populations; are increasing by the day.

Through crisis, we are seeing the reorganization of the global political economy, and the transformation of capitalism into a totalitarian capitalist world government.
