The Libya media hoax: Fabricated scenes of jubilation & euphoria on Green Squa

23-08-2011 20:18

Fabricated scenes of jubilation and euphoria on Green Square, Tripoli, 22/08/11
Surpassing previous mass media fabrications, both in scale and boldness, yesterday morning's Al Jazeera mise-en-scène will surely go down in history as one of the most cynical hoaxes committed by corporate media since the manipulated pictures of Iraqis topplying Saddam Hussein's statue after the US invasion in 2003.

Occupied Afghanistan: The attack on the British Council in Kabul

21-08-2011 15:09

The British Council in Kabul, 19 August 2011

The attack on the British Council in Kabul on 19th August, resulting in twelve deaths and many injuries, further underlined how unwelcome the occupiers are, in a country in which they should never have been in the first place. Further tragedies, heaped on tragedies, also illustrated how out of touch those both on the ground in country - and those in high places abroad are. The day of the attack was both the Sabbath (Friday) and national holiday marking the 92nd anniversary of Afghanistan's independence from Britain in 1919 and of course, the 19th: 19 -1919.

Urges for Swift Action to Locate Abducted Journalist in Pakistan

12-08-2011 17:25

It is shocking for me that government of Pakistan is silent on the issues of abduction and disappearances by the state intelligence agencies and no one has yet made responsible for these acts which have been happening since 2002. And during the civilian government this menace has increased many fold and it looks as if the government is simply a silent spectator before their powerful law enforcement agencies.

The Human Costs of Washington’s Ongoing Collusion With Terrorists

07-08-2011 20:43

Twice in the last two decades, significant cuts in U.S. and western military spending were foreseen: first after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and then in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. But both times military spending soon increased, and among the factors contributing to the increase were America’s interventions in new areas: the Balkans in the 1990s, and Libya today.1 Hidden from public view in both cases was the extent to which al-Qaeda was a covert U.S. ally in both interventions, rather than its foe.
