US War on Venezuela

19 08 2011

By Sean Penn

With due respect to the United States Department of State and Secretary Clinton, in regards to economic sanctions leveled under CISADA on Venezuela and six other foreign entities. Among the affected countries, only Venezuela is a nation in abject poverty. Oil is its primary export and the exceptionally devastating impact upon its people should be of specific consideration. There has been a systemic barrage of misreporting and context-shifting within the U.S. media and espoused by many U.S. Representatives relative to Venezuela and its democratically elected President Hugo Chavez.

The American people have grown accustomed to hearing the Venezuelan president referred to as a dictator, not only by media representatives but by members of the leadership in both parties. This is a defamation, not only to President Chavez, but also to the majority of Venezuelan people, poor people who have elected him president time and time again . . . (more)

Horrors Of US-NATO Butchery Of Libya Revealed

31 07 2011

special report to Rense

[snip] . . .  Last night, NATO bombed the Libyan Broadcasting company killing 3 civilians and injuring 15 others. They don’t like any TV here except NATO propaganda. I am attaching 2 more leaflets, NATO dropped these last week. In what alternate Universe does NATO think these people will take any advice from them? 

We were at a rally on Thursday where probably 400,000 to 500,000 people rallied behind their country and the Leader of their revolution. . . .

bin Laden Buried-at-Sea Because No-One-Would-Take-Him A LIE!

4 05 2011

Now this is one of the most idiotic lies to come out of this Pakistan assault story. The White House line goes they had to drag his body away real quick to give a proper Muslim “burial” at sea because no country wanted the body to be buried in their country. Not even counting the fact that shoving a corpse off side a ship like bait is not considered OK in the Arab world let’s look at one country that could take him. Saudi Arabia.

The bin Laden family has favored status there.

King Faud owns tons of properties including a

 private island! Azizia Island is 4 square miles and would have lots and lots of room for bullet riddled corpse.

King Faud is so taken with the bin Laden clan they enjoy exclusive construction contracts for the biggest religious sites in the Kingdom including refurbishing Mecca!  

From –  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/binladen/who/family.html :

Because the bin Laden company had the exclusive contract for repairs in the Holy Places, its trucks entered and left Mecca at all hours without being inspected. And the rebels used “bin Laden” trucks to get weapons into the city. One of the bin Laden sons, Mahrous, was actually arrested on account of his ties with the Islamists, but was later freed. He is currently manager of the group’s Medina branch.

The reason is as follows: after studies in England, where he had kept company with Fadli (son of the ex-sultan of the Abdin region in South Yemen, now leader of a Yemeni fundamentalist group and arrested in Aden last January), Mahrous struck up friendships with a group of Syrian Moslem Brothers in exile in Saudi Arabia. Subsequent Saudi intelligence investigations showed that these Moslem Brothers had taken advantage of Mahrous to use bin Laden trucks without his knowledge.

There was a touch of irony to the episode: when the insurrection broke out, the Saudi security services had to go for help to the bin Ladens, the sole parties in possession of maps of Mecca enabling the Saudi (and Western) police to find their way through the city’s underground passageways.

In any case, the episode also demonstrated the strength of the ties between the royal family and the bin Laden Group. Had it been some other group, there is no doubt that Mahrous–whether accomplice or patsy–would have been thrown into prison and the group barred from further economic activity in the kingdom, the sentence serving as a warning to others. This was not the case.

Likewise, the Saudi authorities’ decision to issue an arrest warrant for Osama bin Laden on 16 May 1993 does not threaten to affect the relationship between the bin Ladens and the royal family. Osama, one of Mohammed’s youngest son, has been known for years for his fundamentalist activities. …The arrest warrant was issued both because of his support for fundamentalist groups involved in terrorist operations in Algeria and Egypt and his ties with upstart religious circles that tried to establish an independent human rights organization in Saudi Arabia at the beginning of May.

Contrary to appearances, both the Osama and the Mahrous incidents testify to the bin Laden’s influence within the kingdom.

Here’s some more dirt –  http://nona-people.blogspot.com/2008/01/bin-laden-family.html

Is the reason the Bush Jr. won’t dance around the pyre at Ground Zero because he doesn’t want to offend the bin Laden family, the Saudi royal family and his crooked cronies in Saudi Arabian oil?

Another off shore locale where the (supposed) body of Osama bin Laden might rest is the bin Laden-friendly Cayman Islands. They had the tip-off on the 9-11 plot (cover for detonation) in AUGUST and didn’t relay it. . .


Anonymous Letter Warned of Bin Laden Attack


Statement by the Cayman Islands Government

http://www.guidetoaction.org/magazine/cayman.html


Note to FBI, CIA, “Homeland” Security Dept., NSA and all the other spooks – above research took less than 10 minutes.

The reason for dumping the body secretly was:

 A] It was someone else

B] The was no burial at sea – whole story a big lie.  

US soldiers get orders to keep quiet on missions for decades or forever after they get out of the service. Navy Seals still don’t talk about their participation in political kidnappings and assassinations in Viet Nam.





On the Fake Bin Laden Story and Mass Mind-Fuck Going On NOW

3 05 2011

Now that the call for the US to end its invasions of the oil countries of the middle east and North Africa are heard all around the world it looks like this (Obama re-election) mind-fuck was cooked up to address that. It will only indulge the already fooled. It will convince NO ONE that the US and British “interests” are being protected by these aggressive wars-for-oil.

Nice try.

There is lively conversation at the site Above Top Secret. The Flying Cuttlefish Picayune doesn’t particularly endorse that site over others but we’re posting a link here since they seem to be under a hack attack and they deserve some support. – http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread353649/pg1

UPDATE

Pravada says the story was cooked up to cover up murder in Tripoli –

Make believe killing (Bin Laden) to cover up murder?

The NATO statement mourning the death of the younger son and three grandchildren of Muammar Gaddafi is a cynicism seldom seen. It is not credible that Gadhafi left his son and grandchildren in a military installation, even after a month of heavy bombing in the capital, Tripoli. Rather it was an attack on a house in a residential neighborhood, with the deliberate aim of taking out the Libyan leader.

Like it or not this is not the UN mandate in Libya. Rather, the authorization of military force is to protect civilians, not to assassinate Gaddafi, much less his children and grandchildren. . . .

WSWS view:
Obama at Ground Zero

6 May 2011

President Barack Obama’s brief visit to New York City’s “Ground Zero” Thursday is part of an orchestrated campaign to exploit the killing of Osama bin Laden for the most reactionary purposes.

Even as more details emerge making it clear that the operation mounted by Navy Seals and the CIA in Pakistan represented the extra-judicial execution of an unarmed man, there are growing indications that domestic political considerations have played a major role in the entire affair. . .

. . . . Under conditions of unending wars without results, a protracted economic crisis and a tremendous deterioration of the social conditions of American working people, popular anger is growing, much of it directed at the Obama administration. A major consideration in the decision to kill Bin Laden was the idea that a successful operation could be exploited to shore up Obama’s political position and divert this anger through the promotion of jingoism and militarism  . . . .

New Bin Laden Tapes Appear Fake Like Earlier Ones

and this famous item –
FBI says no evidence linking Bin Laden to 9/11

FBI says, “No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11”
[snip] –
On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden's Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden's Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."

Why is the Fed Bailing Out Qaddafi? by Matt Taibbi.

Rolling Stone
April 1, 2011

Barack Obama recently issued an executive order imposing a wave of sanctions against Libya, not only freezing Libyan assets, but barring Americans from having business dealings with Libyan banks.

So raise your hand if you knew that the United States has been extending billions of dollars in aid to Qaddafi and to the Central Bank of Libya, through a Libyan-owned subsidiary bank operating out of Bahrain. . . .

USA discovers human rights in oil-rich Libya

20 03 2011

Something is mighty fishy with this US sudden awareness of human rights in Libya.

The imperial  power that oozed praise on despots like Pinochet and Suharto suddenly cannot abide Gaddafi (their water carrier) in Libya. The World Socialist Website agrees ….

The World Socialist Web Site categorically opposes any military intervention in Libya. The drive toward war, which was given the green light by the UN Security Council on Thursday, has nothing to do with the humanitarian pretexts offered up by the major powers. Rather, it represents the violent imperialist subjugation of a former colony.

The bombing of Libya by French, British and American planes will not protect human life, but will transform the country into a battlefield with thousands of innocent victims. This is an imperialist war. Libya is an oppressed, former colonial country. The WSWS rejects fundamentally and in all circumstances military attacks by imperialist powers on such countries. . .   (more)
