The Yankee Bases and the Latin American Sovereignty (by Fidel Castro)

12-08-2009 22:28

US military presence in the Americas (2009)
The war on drugs is a pretext to establish military bases in the whole hemisphere.

The arguments used for the installation of seven air and naval US bases in Colombia are an insult to intelligence.

The Yankee forces could promote a dirty war as they did in Nicaragua, and even recruit soldiers of foreign nationalities who are trained by them and attack any country. But the combative, brave and patriotic people of Colombia would hardly let itself be dragged into a war against a people from a sister nation like Venezuela.

Whose the Real Hypocrite Secretary Clinton?

12-08-2009 14:20

"In recent days, Narco News has reported that, in the three months prior to the June 28 coup d’etat in Honduras, the US-funded Millennium Change Corporation (MCC) gave at least $11 million US dollars to private-sector contractors in Honduras and also that since the coup it has doled out another $6.5 million.

The latter revelation – that the money spigot has been left on even after the coup – comes in spite of claims by the State Department that it has placed non-humanitarian funding “on pause” pending a yet-unfinished review."

More than a movement -- the search for 9/11 truth is an awakening

12-08-2009 13:04

As I’ve dug deeper into who’s really out there spreading the truth about 9/11, I’ve found an inspiring assemblage of ordinary people from all walks of life.

Beyond the basic questions of who really did it, and all the hows and whys that go with it, diving into 9/11 truth for many becomes a personal and even spiritual process. It stirs us to ask deep and profound questions:

Who am I and what do I really believe? How do I know what I know? How would it change my life if I admit that “Dad” or any authority figure is really capable of the unthinkable? What does it mean to wake up and tell the truth every day -- to myself, first, and then to those around me who may ridicule me for what I say?

No Letup In Political Witch-Hunts Under Obama

For eight years, the Bush administration relentlessly targeted Muslim, environmental, and animal rights activists as national security or terrorist threats. Shamefully, Obama continues the same practice.

Israel Determined To Provoke Someone To Start A Regime Changing War Against Iran

11-08-2009 17:09

Israel seems determined to provoke its enemies hook or by crook in order to
get a war going against Iran. If they're not continually directly accusing
Iran of having a nuclear weapons program - despite the total lack of any
evidence to even suggest Iran has any nuclear weapons program - then Israel
is accusing Hezbollah of wanting to attack Israelis and Israeli interests
outside of Israel

Honduras Coup: Template for a Hemispheric Assault on Democracy

11-08-2009 07:39

"Honduras resists!"
As Eva Golinger has convincingly documented1, the United States took part in conceiving, planning, and staging the coup. The U.S. ambassador in Tegucigalpa, Hugo Llorens, coordinates a team of high-ranking U.S. and Honduran military officials, and creatures from the old Bush administration, using the Soto Cano (Palmerola) U.S. air force base.

But when the army, machine guns blazing, assaulted President Zelaya’s house, kidnapped him, and dumped him in Costa Rica – still in pajamas – their actions forged unprecedented unity in Latin America and the Caribbean against the coup regime, and enraged hundreds of thousands within the country.

The Pentagon's 21st Century Counterinsurgency Wars: Latin America and South Asia

10-08-2009 15:31

"democracy - prosperity - liberty - progress"
Coups and counterinsurgencies engineered and supported by Washington are no longer relics of the past century. Coups of the Georgian variety and its offshoots or of the Honduran model and Vietnam-style counterinsurgency wars have been reactivated as foreign policy options of choice. What is new is the degree of international coordination now practiced by the US and its allies.

The Wall Street Journal Walls Itself In and Ridiculously Defends the Dictatorshi

10-08-2009 14:07

"The coup d'état that rocked Honduras in late June and removed democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya from office, sending him into exile in Costa Rica, was preceded by a multi-million dollar build-up of foreign aid from a U.S. agency that includes on its board of directors the president of the International Republican Institute as well as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
That taxpayer-funded agency, called the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), oversees a multi-billion dollar foreign-aid fund called the Millennium Challenge Account. It was established in 2004 under the Bush administration as means of combating terrorism by funding development in poor nations under a strict neo-conservative free-trade model."

Honduras Coup Dictator Micheletti Calls Out the Geezer Patrol or "a country for

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.
