Hundreds Protest Agianst U.S. Support For Mexican Drug Cartels

he abduction and killing of 43 Mexican student activists have sparked nationwide protests in the country. And now Mexican-Americans across the United States have taken to the streets to show their outrage over the students’ tragic fate. Protesters say that the drug related violence and political repression has directly been facilitated by the U-S government. They accuse Washington of supplying the Mexican government and the drug cartels with weapons and training. Miriam Martinez pointed out that funding and weapons from the US are not fighting drugs, but rather are being used to kill innocent civilians and perpetuate drug wars. Christopher Ortigoza pointed out that many of the armed people in the narcotics-linked criminal organizations have actually been trained by the US government. Ortigoza also pointed out to a military training program located in New England, which is said to be linked to many deaths of Mexican civilians.

Will the Iran Deal-Wreckers Prevail?

Iran appears ready to sign an agreement tightly constraining its nuclear program in exchange for some sanctions relief, but neocons and other U.S. hardliners appear determined to wreck the deal, which could make Mideast tensions even worse, writes ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar

As of this writing the greatest chance of wrecking it appears to involve not what is going on at the negotiating tables in Europe but instead what the U.S. Congress may do back in Washington to sabotage the work of the diplomats. The energy for the Congressional wrecking ball comes, as it always has, from three sources.

‘International law is being applied highly selectively, when it comes to Iran’

RT talks to U.S. foreign policy analyst Soraya Ulrich

Soraya Ulrich is not optimistic that a deal would be reached before the deadline. She raises the point that this is not just about Iran, this is a fight about upholding international laws and international treaties, which are being violated by the United States. She notes that Iran has never violated the NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty), yet it is being accused of doing so. If we succumb to the violation by one party i.e United States and its allies in this case, then international laws and international treaties will loose all meaning and other countries will fall prey to such lawlessness.

Top US and Iranian diplomats have decided to stay in Vienna to continue tense negotiations on the nuclear issue until a consensus suitable to both states is reached.

World powers are trying to agree on limits for Iran’s uranium enrichment, and the sanctions imposed on the country.

Moment of Truth — Iran and Obama

President Obama cannot mollify those critics inside as well as outside his administration who want unconditional surrender from the IRI (Islamic Republic of Iran)and still expect to get an agreement. Humiliation is a dangerous and delicate business. Especially so when the party whom you intend to humiliate is a proud people and its leaders willful.

A recommendation: Sign the nuclear accord with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Announce it with great fanfare. Declare that this opens a new era in relations between the two countries and holds out the prospect for achieving peace and stability across the region. By acting in this way, the United States would redraw the diplomatic map of the Middle East in ways that open opportunities for resolution of its internecine conflicts and for the establishment of a measure of stability.

Alert: Monsanto is trying to crush Maui right now

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

Right now, the heart of the ACTUAL American struggle against Monsanto is in Maui.

On Election Day, voters in Maui County passed a local ballot measure blocking Monsanto and Dow from further development of GMOs.

Maui is a very important piece of Monsanto’s empire. Because of the year-round weather, they can run many, many tests on new GMO crop varieties.

So Monsanto and Dow immediately turned around and sued Maui County...

UN resolution on Iran mockery of justice

The UN consciously or unconsciously plays into the hands of the pro-Israeli pressure groups in Canada and only puts on an ugly show of duplicity in imposing a ruling against the Islamic Republic.

The farce becomes more markedly absurd when you consider the plethora of human rights abuses going unpunished in the world with the UN laying a lid of ignorance on these blatant violations.

Iran has strongly lambasted the UN resolution, saying that “the UN’s legal mechanisms have turned into a tool in the hands of the West.”

The irony of the resolution is that the measure was initially drafted by Canada which has itself a disgracing history of human rights abuse against the aborigines in the country. Further to that, Ottawa has constantly and vehemently thrown its full-throated support behind Tel Aviv in its inconceivably ruthless crimes against the people of Palestine.

COMMUNITY ORGANIZER? ‘Obama in Contact with Major Civil Rights Groups Across the U.S. on Ferguson’

Whatever is about to go down when the grand jury announces its decision in the Darren Wilson/Michael Brown case, rest assured America, our president is on it.

In fact, according to Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill who spoke to Obama about Ferguson on Tuesday, the president has taken time out of his busy schedule to make sure and personally contact major civil rights groups all across America regarding Ferguson.

Sen. McCaskill also apparently told CBS St. Louis that Obama “will become more involved when it’s appropriate.”

Comprehensive Trade And Economic Agreement And The Transatlantic Trade And Investment Partnership: Don’t Let Them Get Away With It

As part of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), there are plans to enshrine massive powers for corporations that will allow them to challenge regulations both at home and abroad if they affect profits. EU member states could find domestic laws quite useless as they become challenged in secretive, offshore tribunals where national laws have no weight and politicians no powers to intervene.

Europe Veering From US Abyss Over Russia?

One hopes that Europe is beginning to part ways with the US direction on Russia – a direction that is leading to an abyss.

It’s long overdue but better late than never that Europe might just be back-pedaling on America’s aggressive agenda towards Russia. The business-like visit to Moscow this week by Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier suggests that Europe can come to its senses to seek a diplomatic resolution of the escalating tensions over the Ukraine crisis – tensions that could spark a wider continental war, or worse.

Steinmeier met with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in which the pair stressed the need to find a political end to the violence in Ukraine.

How Police Use Military Tactics to Quash Dissent

As we wait for the grand jury verdict on whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown, schools in Ferguson are preparing to close, the police are stocked up on riot weapons and white supremacists are pledging to kill. A sand-colored, mine-resistant military vehicle was seen parked in front a local Dairy Queen. Protesters are organized and eschewing violence for clever forms of civil disobedience, but know they will likely face violence: Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has already declared a state of emergency in Ferguson.

Armored trucks in the street and a fear of mayhem are more common abroad, but Ferguson shows they now have a place in the suburbs of America. Police have militarized from to boots to brainstem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that at both the Federal and State level, the government wants violence in Ferguson, to viciously stomp down with extreme prejudice, and show the world the the US striving to become "number one" when it comes to police brutality, particularly against minorities.

It is very sad to me that the crisis brought on by the killing of Michael Brown cannot become an opportunity for the police to change their institutional culture and reach out to the citizens of this community, which would be the best possible outcome.

Unfortunately, no matter the Grand Jury's decision, I would almost be willing to bet that there will be violence, not only in this town, but in other densely-packed urban areas where joblessness and poverty are rife.

And why?!? Because the good jobs which used to be the bedrock of the middle class in this country have been outsourced/offshored to the cheapest labor pools possible on this planet.

And it hasn't mattered much who is in office, as this development has unfolded over the last 30 years, because those same executives which are doing this are contributing generously to their candidates of choice, who have now become representative of corporations, not at all of We the People.

I sincerely believe that most people, given the opportunity, will work when it is possible; it is just that there are no jobs for them to go to, due to offshoring/outsourcing.

I can never condone violence, as an answer to any societal problem; but I can understand how it comes about, out of intense frustration that absolutely nothing is working properly in your life.

And being unemployed,and barely surviving on public assistance, have to be frustrating in the extreme.

And the longer one is out of a job, the more prejudicial companies are about hiring that person.

Ferguson: A Highly Organized, Scripted Agenda to Overshadow the Executive Amnesty Announcement?

The Michael Brown/Darren Wilson case in Ferguson, Missouri has blown up. It has been engineered to do so. See the article below on just how highly organized, scripted and surely funded this thing has become. A state of emergency has preemptively been declared for 30 days in Missouri before the grand jury’s decision has even been announced. “Planned responses” (not protests) have been organized for 83 cities across the nation and Canada. They are even holding informational meetings and “direct action trainings” in the lead up to the decision. The cops are stocking up on riot gear and rubber bullets. Residents are emptying gun stores.

Ask yourself. Why is this particular case in Ferguson the one that our government and mainstream media have thrown all of their time and resources into? Why has it blown up so fast?

Not Just Ferguson: Protests Scheduled for 83 Cities, “Direct Action Trainings” Held for Protesters

Everyone knows the government, with its lapdog mainstream media in lockstep, has whipped up the Ferguson situation into a total frenzy.

It doesn’t matter what the grand jury decides now. Fear and anger are very powerful weapons and everyone who has allowed the powers that (shouldn’t) be to steer their emotions on this one has taken the bait.

The cops have stocked up on nearly $200k worth of riot gear, less-lethal ammunition and the like. Ferguson residents have been advised to go get guns because the cops won’t be able to protect them all from what’s coming. Firearm sales in the area have skyrocketed. Everyone is on edge.

Missouri’s governor has now preemptively declared a 30-day state of emergency and called out the National Guard — and the grand jury hasn’t even made it’s decision yet!

Basically, it’s on.

Ferguson, however, is not the only city set to hold protests immediately following the Darren Wilson grand jury announcement.

The newly released 'Global Terrorism Index 2014' spawned plenty of fear-mongering headlines by the corporate mainstream media, but the extensive report actually includes some very revealing & seldom-mentioned facts about the actual causes & remedies of terrorism. "Lack Of Political Legitimacy" & "Powerful external actors upholding corrupt regimes" were cited as causes of terrorism in the prestigious annual report. Also cited as causes of terrorism were Inequality in power, Repression by foreign occupation or colonial powers, torture, and "state sponsored violence such as extrajudicial killings, political terror scale and poor human rights." To put an end to terrorism, the report explains that "longer term approaches are essential. These longer term priorities include the need to address group grievances, ending gross physical rights abuses by the state and improving access to justice and the rule of law."

"Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy." - Henry Kissinger, former U.S. National Security Advisor and Secretary of State.

War is part of human history, we have fought each other for millennia. In most cases wars have been waged to take territories and resources. All major nations have won their power through blood and iron. Not a lot has changed today. Big players still try to dominate the world by playing out a grand chess game. They conspire to deceive and manipulate the public through propaganda campaigns and false flag operations, they often invent non-existent threats to justify their actions.

The NAFTA Connection: The Role of “Free” Trade in Mexico’s Tragic Travails

Mexico’s liberalization of trade and finance, with help from the world’s largest banks, has enabled drug traffickers and the corrupt political establishment.

Many in the police, the judiciary and even the military are intimidated, inadequately trained, and/or corrupt. The influence of drug money within all three major political parties is now taken for granted…

On a positive note, the problem of endemic political corruption in Mexico is now finally getting the attention it deserves, both inside and outside Mexico’s borders. However, corruption tells only part of Mexico’s tragic sage. There is another no less important, but generally ignored, factor in the rise to dominance of Mexico’s drug cartels: the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Obama Slammed for Iran Outreach

American neocons are furious that President Obama reportedly sent a letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei apparently urging concessions on nuclear talks and referencing joint interests in combating Islamic State radicals, but the letter may reflect smart diplomacy, says ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar.

The bursts of criticism — from those who inveterately oppose any dealing with Iran, and those who inveterately oppose anything Barack Obama is doing, which include some of the same people — of a letter Mr. Obama reportedly sent to the supreme leader of Iran can readily be dismissed for multiple reasons.

WATCH: Police in riot gear arrest California Walmart workers during sit-in over wages, firings

Police decked out in riot gear arrested Walmart workers and supporters after they blocked an intersection in front of a Pico Rivera, California store Thursday evening.

KTLA reports dozens of protestors were taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies wearing riot helmets and holding batons, several hours after the sit-in began, drawing hundreds protesting working conditions at the retail giant.

The sit-in followed a work stoppage earlier in the day at the company’s Crenshaw Boulevard store in Baldwin Hills.

Employees in Baldwin Hills store stopped work and sat on the floor with tape over the mouths reading ‘strike,’ while holding signs saying, “Walmart stop the illegal threats.”

Walmart is currently under investigation for firing and threatening employee activists.

Activists have been setting up protests at Walmart stores across the country, posting pictures on twitter at #walmartstrikers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at abcnews.com in 2010:

By Ed Smith's math, the CEO of Walmart earns more in an hour than his employees will earn in a year. Smith, an alderman in Chicago, presented posters at a city council meeting showing that Walmart CEO Michael Duke's $35 million salary, when converted to an hourly wage, worked out to $16,826.92. By comparison, at a Walmart store planned for the Windy City's Pullman neighborhood, new employees to be paid $8.75 an hour would gross $13,650 a year. Smith's numbers could be a bit off. Equilar, an executive compensation research firm, calculates that Duke earned just south of $20 million in 2009 and $28 million in 2008, not counting millions of dollars in potential performance awards. But the alderman argued that there's still a "sad" contrast between Duke's compensation and the wages of his employees.

Apparently, when police departments have their cars decaled with the phrase "to protect and serve" on their police cars, they are only talking about the interests of the corporate monied, and the one percenters.

The decent jobs, which used to be the cornerstone of a healthy middle class in this country, have been, and continue to be, offshored and outsourced to the cheapest labor pools available.

And please notice that it doesn't matter if the administration is Democratic or Republican: the corporate job flight continues at a stunningly brisk pace.

Ferguson braces for protests ahead of Darren Wilson grand jury decision

Authorities and residents in the US city of Ferguson are bracing for a decision about whether a police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teen should be prosecuted.

A grand jury is looking at the racially charged shooting, in which white police officer Darren Wilson shot 18-year-old Michael Brown. The jury is expected to announce its findings any time between mid- to late-November.

“Quite simply, we must and will be fully prepared,” Missouri Governor Jay Nixon cautioned at a news conference on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the people of Ferguson, I counsel calm, however this verdict comes down.

Calm, and non-violence are the two hardest values to embrace, particularly when there is a police culture of violence with which you have to contend.

One of my great heroes in this country from the 20th century is Dr. Martin Luther King, who stood at the forefront of civil rights battles, before he was cut down in an assassination.

He accomplished what he accomplished in this country with complete dignity, and non-violence, demonstrating to the world the horrific violence displayed against him, and his African-American brothers and sisters. And ultimately, this country's leadership recoiled in shame, unable to control the narrative, and integration became the law of the land.

And to ALL the faith communities in Ferguson, now is the time to reach out to ALL of the community to counsel a peaceful response to this verdict, and I will tell you why.

The Federal government would love nothing more than to have a relatively small violent protest that it could put down easily with a mighty show of military suppression.

And please, with the current President, please take as hard a look as you can as to "the content of his character", as demonstrated by the plight of so many Americans (including African Americans) find themselves in, through no fault of their own, due to the offshoring and outsourcing of jobs, which continues at lighting speed, under this administration. As reported at wsws.org in July 2013:

The increases in child poverty continued well after the Obama administration officially declared that the recession had ended. The recession officially lasted for a year and a half, from December 2007 to June 2009. But after a similar period of eighteen months of “recovery” child poverty was still climbing rapidly. This was so even as the national unemployment rate registered a gradual decline. The report ties lack of family income to two related economic indicators exacerbated by the continuing economic crisis: the availability of regular employment and housing costs. One-third of American children live in households without secure employment, i.e., no parent has full-time, year-round employment, up from 27 percent in 2008. Part of this is due to the growing trend of replacing full-time jobs with part-time work.

Do no lot at this President as a person: look at him through the policies he has embraced,such as the continuance of offshoring and outsourcing of jobs, to the detriment, and suffering, of the American people.

At the end of the day, his faux populism notwithstanding, President Obama is no less a complete tool of the monied, corporate, banking class than was his predecessor. That is the simple, unvarnished truth of the situation.

And to the Federal government, when the verdict comes down, I would counsel restraint.

Ferguson isn't the only flashpoint in this country of angry, dispossessed people who are fed up, and have had enough.

Massive suppression in Ferguson may well become a "tickling of the dragon's tail" which you may not, ultimately, be able to control.

Fury over Mexico student ‘massacre’ boils over into street battles

Mexicans furious at the presumed massacre of 43 students torched the ruling party’s Guerrero state headquarters and briefly took a police commander prisoner on Tuesday as growing protests rocked President Enrique Pena Nieto’s government.

Riot police clashed with protesters in running street battles as black smoke billowed from the white two-story building of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) in the southern state’s capital Chilpancingo.

Violent protests have erupted in Mexico since authorities said on Friday that the gang ‘hitmen’ confessed to murdering the students and incinerating their bodies after corrupt police handed over the 43 young men in September in Guerrero.
Some 1,000 people, led by students and the radical CETEG teachers union, marched in Chilpancingo before throwing stones and firebombs at police.

Three officers and two journalists, including a photographer working for AFP, were injured after being struck by rocks, said a civil protection official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although as a Christian pacifist, I abhor violence, that does not mean that I do not understand how it happens, as a result of governmental corruption and torture.

The sad reality for Mexican citizens is that their government is owned by the cartels, period, end of discussion.

And what might end this would be a complete decriminalization of all drugs, in small amounts, for personal use.

The model in Portugal has been very encouraging in this direction.

As reported in huffingtonpost.com in July of this year, the World Health Organization calls for decriminalizing personal drug use:

The 159-page report, which focused primarily on HIV prevention and care worldwide, included a brief section discussing "good practice recommendations concerning decriminalization." In it, WHO offered the following recommendations: Countries should work toward developing policies and laws that decriminalize injection and other use of drugs and, thereby, reduce incarceration. Countries should work toward developing policies and laws that decriminalize the use of clean needles and syringes (and that permit NSPs [needle and syringe programs]) and that legalize OST [opioid substitution therapy] for people who are opioid-dependent.Countries should ban compulsory treatment for people who use and/or inject drugs. Actual decriminalization is not without precedent either. Some countries have begun to consider it for some or all illicit drugs. In 2001, Portugal did decriminalize all drugs and has seen a dramatic decline in drug abuse since.

But of course, such action would be logical.... and put the cartels out of business, with their money drying up, almost instantaneously.

CHINA JAILS CIA’S UIGHUR IMAMS

More recently the CIA surrogate, the State Department’s National Endowment for Democracy, has fanned the flames of unrest in China’s Xinjiang where separatists are calling for a state they dub East Turkistan.?
China has imprisoned around two dozen Uighur Muslim leaders in the western region of Xinjiang for “illegal religious activities.”

The convicted suspects were given prison terms ranging between five and 16 years, according the China’s state-run news service.

Aljazeera reports China is concerned enemies of the state in Xinjiang may receive support from Islamists in nearby Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The judge delicately told them to shove off, saying that the proposed measures were disproportionate to the situation. And so the vote was held in peace, with the only exception of Girona, where a group of skinheads bumrushed a voting point, kicked the ballot box to the ground and, in a textbook case of instant karma, were smote by the violent gentlemen of a local rugby team which just happened to be there voting. Never had a gaggle of skinheads been happier to see the police arrive to arrest them.

Veterans, Americans: Honor us all by ending unlawful, lie-began US wars

*hyperlinks live at source*
Veterans Day honors those among us who took a military Oath to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” All US military are trained to refuse obvious unlawful orders, with officers trained to arrest those who issue them (here, here).

Given the following objective and independently verifiable facts, the honor all Americans can exercise for veterans, country, and Earth is to end lie-started, unlawful US Wars of Aggression.

Honor is experienced and expressed through our thoughts, words, and actions.

The US has started 201 foreign armed attacks since WW2, causing the world’s peoples to conclude in polling that the US is indeed #1 as the most threatening nation to world peace. These US-started armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men. These US armed attacks have war-murdered more than Hitler’s Nazis.

Russia’s Vulnerability to EU – US Sanctions and Military Encroachments

President Putin has the backing of the vast majority of Russian people; he has the scientific and professional cadre; he has allies in China and among the BRICS; and he has the will and the power to “do the right thing”. The question remains whether Putin will succeed in this historical mission or whether, out of fear and indecision, he will capitulate before the threats of a dangerous and decaying West.

The US-EU sponsored coup in the Ukraine and its conversion from a stable Russian trading partner, to a devastated EU economic client and NATO launch pad, as well as the subsequent economic sanctions against Russia for supporting the Russian ethnic majority in the Donbas region and Crimea, illustrate the dangerous vulnerability of the Russian economy and state. The current effort to increase Russia’s national security and economic viability in the face of these challenges requires a critical analysis of the policies and structures emerging in the post-Soviet era.

Question: What’s the difference between the Zionist lobby in America and the Zionist lobby in Britain?

Answer: In America it gives money to politicians to make them. In Britain it denies them money to break them.

What is Miliband’s crime in the eyes of wealthy British Jews who have been contributing to Labour Party funds?

He condemned Israel’s last war on the Gaza Strip which he described as “wrong and unjustifiable.” He also accused Conservative Prime Minister Cameron of being wrong not to have condemned Israel; and he added that Israel was “losing friends in the international community day by day.” (Which is true).

Discovering Iran — Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

Marcel Proust said: “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” During the past two decades, I visited Iran on numerous occasions staying 10-14 days at a time. This time around, I stayed for 2 months and heeding Proust, I carried with me a fresh pair of eyes. I discarded both my Western lenses as well as my Iranian lenses and observed with objective eyes. It was a formidable journey that left me breathless.

It is hard to know where to start a travel log and how to describe a newfound world in a few pages. However, given the obsession with the status of women, it is perhaps appropriate to start with the women in Iran as I perceived them.

Missouri Cops Gear up for Riots As Decision Nears

The Ferguson, Missouri Police Department is gearing up for trouble again in anticipation of the upcoming grand jury decision expected in mid-November, on whether to indict officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown. Although a recent autopsy report shows evidence that Brown was the aggressor, the mainstream media continues to instigate racial tensions that could result in new riots if Wilson is acquitted by the grand jury.

According to reports, St. Louis County Police have recently purchased tens of thousands of dollars worth of tear gas and other riot ammunition and riot gear in anticipation of more street violence. The so-called “less lethal” ammunition includes smoke and gas grenades, “hornet’s nest” grenades, rubber bullets, wooden bullets, “beanbag rounds” and pepper balls. The riot gear includes riot helmets, shields, batons, shin guards and other items like plastic handcuffs.

Canada’s ‘Remembrance Day’: righteous or rancorous?

With Canada’s annual “Remembrance Day” just around the corner, it would be wise to broach the issue of “remembering” those Canadians who fought and died in the two bloodiest conflicts in world history with some humility and skepticism.

With all things considered, “Remembrance Day” amounts to little more than a glorification of war and an exercise in jingoism and self-aggrandizement. It re-enforces the insulting myth of the “good” and “necessary” wars. It encourages the refusal to recognize the wrongs committed by “our side” in those bloody conflicts. This‘day of reverence’ for our soldiers acts as a mind control mechanism to deceive the public into believing that our government has always acted benevolently and in the interests of the people, when in fact the opposite is true.

Obama represents the worst of US rogue leadership. Threatening world peace.
Turning truth on its head saying “…Russia’s actions against Ukraine remind us we have more work to do to fully realize our shared vision of a Europe that is whole, free and at peace.” Washington bears full responsibility for Ukrainian crisis conditions.

GMO Food: Battles Lost, War Won, Consciousness Changed

by Jefferey Jaxen

In the age of rapid marketing campaigns, viral slogans and mass multimedia, companies have reinvented and deepened their consumer reach. Indeed, companies are now able to tout their products and services to consumers in ways limited only by imagination. Even political candidates have jumped on the band wagon with brand Obama winning ‘Marketer of the year’ in 2008. Where is it all leading? Have we reached advertising burnout? Have our minds reached full saturation with ads, slogans and clever tag-lines?

So why are GMO manufacturers some of the first sectors in history that don’t market to the consumer?...

President Flim-Flam Leads Dems to Midterm Massacre

Tuesday’s electoral meltdown was just blowback from the many rank and file Dems who were either too mad to vote the party ticket or too distraught to even drag themselves to the polling booths. And therein lies the silver lining to this mess, which is that people are disillusioned, frightened and angry. They hate Wall Street, the media, the do-nothing Congress, and the sell-out-loser Democrats. They want change and they’re willing to move further to the right or left to get it.

That should be fertile ground for even the most fainthearted revolutionary. There’s no reason why the public’s frustration and can’t be channeled into more productive activity, like a general strike, a mass exodus from the two-party duopoly, or a thundering march on the Capital.

Why waste all that rage on whining and handwringing? The system is broken. Deal with it.

Organize. Grab a pitchfork. Do something!

Washington’s Middle East Wars

CrossTalking with Ken O’Keefe, Majid Rafizadeh, and Peter van Buren.

What is Washington’s strategy against the Islamic State? Is the Islamic State a creation of the United States? Is the war on terror really a war on Islam? Will the US make amends with Iran in order to defeat the Islamic State? What is Washington’s endgame?

As ever an articulate Ken O’ Keefe injects some teeth and meaning into the discussion. At the outset he disagrees with all of the panelists. He notes it is beyond naive and extremely generous on the part of analysts to say America is making mistakes that are resulting in unintended consequences and America’s numerous think tanks are “running out of ideas.”
