The Scope & Intensity of Anti-Americanism

Protests at US embassies are occurring throughout the Middle East and beyond. Four days thus far and counting.

Over a dozen deaths and hundreds of injuries.

The triggering catalyst was an ugly anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube but Bill Van Auken of wsws explains something even the most obtuse American should know by now, “underlying them [the upheavals] is deep-seated anger over the wars and oppression inflicted by American imperialism over the decades.” Read more about The Scope & Intensity of Anti-Americanism

75% of Global Arms Sales from US -- Super-Merchant-of-Death

The exact percentage for the United States, 2011 leader in global arms sales, is 77.7%.

The runner-up global arms seller is Russia with a comparatively meager 5.6%.

In 2010 our weapons sales were valued at $21.4 billion.

In 2011 our weapons sales are valued at $66.3.

In one year, the weapons sales by the US have TRIPLED!!!!

WTF?

The above statistics are from an article by Bill Van Auken of wsws. The statistics were released last week having been compiled by the Congressional Research Service (CRS).

Obama Threatens US Invasion of Syria

US and NATO are huddling to discuss an “official” US military invasion of Syria to bring down Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

Obama announced the possibility of a direct attack on Syria at Monday night's press conference.

INTRO-Syria Loses InfoWar To Morally Unhinged US/Israel/NATO

Okay, my first selected title of this blog was a tad too long but let me repeat it here:

“Blood-Bathed Syria Loses Info War To Serial Deceit of Morally & Militarily Unhinged (But Murderous) US/Israel/NATO”

Fasten your seatbelt if there’s the remotest chance your mind and heart are open to reality re the latest amoral outrage going on in Syria. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Of WW III proportions. (I wish I were being hyperbolic.)

“We’ve seen this movie before,” one of the dozen or so HONEST journalists I have been reading in the past few days reminds. Read more about INTRO-Syria Loses InfoWar To Morally Unhinged US/Israel/NATO

Death by Media: Radioactive Days

I woke up Sunday AM and by habit, tuned in to CBS news radio. The dulcet tones of news guy Harley Carnes related how radioactive bluefish tuna swam all the way from Japan to our west coast. And then he told us not to worry; the fish were perfectly OK to eat since the added radioactivity was only 2% of what occurs naturally.

You first, Harley.

I tried to find a verifying transcript, but all I could locate was this thread comment on an obscure site:

but harley carnes on kcbs said it was ok to eat, according to the "official"

so, num,num

sushi anyone

If you listen closely, you can hear an elite "Haw haw haw!!" from Versailles. Read more about Death by Media: Radioactive Days

Obama, NATO, Chicago, Fascism & Genocide

The 25th summit of NATO was held in Chicago.

What did it mean? I mean REALLY mean for us bottom and captive 99 percenters in the U.S. and in the world at large?

The propaganda paint job of the Obama regime is that NATO countries are doing mutual strategizing particularly to bring an end to the war in Afghanistan. Read more about Obama, NATO, Chicago, Fascism & Genocide
