29-11-2011 12:22

US-Power Front in Global War ...
Obama Doctrine: Imperialism Masked as «Humanitarian Interventionism» ......... The Obama administration, in yet another display of the use of Orwellian language, has embarked on a military doctrine called “Mass Atrocity Prevention” (MAP), the Pentagon operational plan to implement the White House’s “R2P” or “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine. Essentially, the Pentagon doctrine is crafted to militarily support the intervention of regional and worldwide international forces operating under the umbrella of NATO, UN, the African Union, the Organization of American States (OAS), the Arab League, and other organizations in the name of “humanitarian” intervention to prevent widespread massacres. The doctrine’s first major test case was in Libya, where NATO forces, in support of Western- and Saudi/Gulf potentate-backed rebel forces, ousted the 42 year-old regime of Muammar Qaddafi.

US Presidential Candidate Romney Bought Animal Research Corporation

15-11-2011 22:14

As the sole voting stock owner of Bain Capital for 15 years, Mitt Romney,
touted as the leading Republican candidate for US president, bought
vivisection company Behring of Germany, a company which had for 100 years
inflicted pain and captivity on dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, etc. Romney kept
brutal rodeos in the Salt Lake City rodeos, invested his company in animal
flesh mongers, vivisectors and other ecocidal ventures. His business partner
has been Goldman Sachs, itself invested in animal murder around the world.
The link is is related to the barbarism
of Romney's Bain Capital disc jockeys to animals.
