ISIS Like Al Qaeda Useful US Frankenstein Monster!

No one can deny or minimize the horror of the recent video released in the media showing the early January immolation of a captured Jordanian pilot by ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

I have never used the words “cognitive dissonance” so frequently before Obama’s accession to the WH, but once again, those sirens are blaring and should be for the rest of you. The corporate media drive to "war and vengeance" fever among not only our population but now many riled others is burning hotly over this as it burned after the Charlie Hebdo killings.

Paris Terror Attack like 9/11 Useful for 'New World Order'

The January 7th terror attack in Paris has been the justification for French President Hollande to deploy 10,000 troops and thousands of police officers for furthering state control over all of the French citizenry.

French and empathetic global citizens are justifiably and sincerely outraged by the tragedy. However, imperialism- and fascism-bent patriarchal leaders are eager to exploit the collective outflow of concern to Orwellianly craven and cynical advantage in their erosion of democratic and socially responsible principles in their respective countries and targeted others.

Wise Words on Stupid War by David Swanson

Excerpts from "The World Gets the Wars Americans Deserve" by David Swanson:

... the general impression one gets from traveling around and speaking and answering questions at public events in the United States is not so much that people are indifferent to the destruction of the globe as long as they don't miss their favorite television show, as that people are unclear on what destruction means and can't identify a globe when it's placed in a lineup with six watermelons.

Libya Today, If Any Americans Remotely Care

It always resonates the pace of “Lucy and the chocolate factory” manic-ness, US-government, often with NATO, produced chaos and misery around the world, not to mention the chaos and misery from our own government on us domestically.

We collectively are easily numbed out by the "velocitization" of global and domestic tragedies our government is responsible for, though that responsibility rarely is dwelled upon if admitted to by a colluding and propagandizing mainstream media.

Thread: 

Robbie Couch in an article on HuffPo recently asserted:

Even a small regional nuclear war would kill at least 2 billion people all around the world, especially children, as food prices skyrocketed and billions became unable to afford food.

I thought I should post this study

Although historically European elites have traditionally used war among themselves as a means of relieving social pressures for real change, and stirring up nationalism, that approach has become too risky with the advent of nuclear weapons.
