MH370 and MH17 — Vanishing point…

Follow the engine wreckage. Follow the cockpit wreckage. Follow the motive. One cannot even imagine the tectonic geopolitical plates clashing were the Kiev regime to be deemed responsible. It would be the vanishing point for the whole – warped – notion of the Empire of Chaos’s “indispensable” exceptionalism.

Where’s Baudrillard when we need him?

They might as well have been abducted – and shot – by aliens. Now you see them, now you don’t.

Today, the Korean Aerospace Institute announced that she had resigned for personal reasons, ending the program.

IN TIMES OF WAR: A PRAYER FOR PEACE - CLAIRE K. RIVERO

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting Claire's video as the US invades Iraq for the third time, and as a new flood of TV commercials hits the corporate media networks reminding all 18 year-olds that they MUST register for selective service, and because recent revelations from Edward Snowden include confirmation that the NSA "tinkers" with view counts on YouTube videos to keep videos contrary to the war agenda from going viral.
