09-08-2009 18:58

"The pro-coup dailies in Honduras are abuzz with EXCELLENT NEWS FOR THE COUP REGIME!
Faced with the reality that millions of Hondurans have done the math and figured out that 14,000 National Police plus 9,000 members of the Armed Forces do not equal enough force to squash their unarmed movement to topple the coup d’etat, coup “president” Roberto Micheletti has called in the reserves.
The pro-coup daily La Tribuna gushes that the cavalry has come to save the coup regime from the forward march of the Honduran people:
More than 2,000 reservists, veterans of war and retired officials of the Armed Forces (FFAA, in its Spanish initials) reiterated their support for the President, Roberto Micheletti, at the celebration of the National Day of the Reservist."

The Great Hiroshima Cover-Up

09-08-2009 08:31

Ground Zero, Hiroshima, 1945
In the weeks following the atomic attacks on Japan 64 years ago, and then for decades afterward, the United States engaged in airtight suppression of all film shot in Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the bombings. This included footage shot by U.S. military crews and Japanese newsreel teams. In addition, for many years, all but a handful of newspaper photographs were seized or prohibited. The public did not see any of the newsreel footage for 25 years, and the U.S. military film remained hidden for nearly four decades.

09-08-2009 00:24

Although you people in Europe are sensible and have government insurance, never trust the United States. They will be trying to privatize every part of your economy they can. They are privatizing everything over here including Social Security. Not even Medicare is free anymore. Don't trust these bastards. The health insurance companies are the largest parasites in the world. I myself am about to move to New Zealand or some other rational, non warlike country.

Hiroshima Day: America Has Been Asleep at the Wheel for 64 Years

08-08-2009 20:33

Most Americans ever since have seen the destruction of the populations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as necessary and effective—as constituting just means, in effect just terrorism, under the supposed circumstances—thus legitimating, in their eyes, the second and third largest single-day massacres in history.

To regard those acts as definitely other than criminal and immoral—as most Americans do—is to believe that anything—anything—can be legitimate means: at worst, a necessary, lesser, evil. At least, if done by Americans, on the order of a president, during wartime.
