What the American Public Shouldn't Know:Information Clearing House: ICH: "Many people around the world might have credulously or perhaps naively fallen in the trap of believing the tempting claims of the U.S. statesmen and politicians who say that their country is a 'beacon of freedom' and a 'pioneer of democracy.'"

The John Edwards Case; Justice or personal vendetta? By Mike Whitney : Information Clearing House: ICH
The John Edwards Case; Justice or personal vendetta? By Mike Whitney : Information Clearing House: ICH: "For example, if the media is told to fabricate stories about fictional WMD or 'mobile weapons plants' or Al Qaida operating in Iraq; they comply with question. If they're told to make up stories about Iran's 'nuclear weapons program', they do just that. If they're told to provide a flattering picture of the Saudi royal dictatorship while bashing the democratically-elected Hugo Chavez as leftist strongman or socialist autocrat, that's what they do. If they are told to write volumes about a woman who is stoned in Iran, but not to utter a word about the million Iraqis that were killed in America's genocidal invasion, they do so."

Cuba's 2009 report to United Nations on the US economic blockade | Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal: "The economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States against Cuba 50 years ago is the most elevated expression of a cruel and inhuman policy, lacking in legality and legitimacy and deliberately designed to create hunger, illnesses and desperation within the Cuban populace. Nothing has changed through ten successive US governments other than a tightening of this policy. Nothing essential has changed either since the new US government was inaugurated in January 2009."
God Bless America. And its Bombs. -- Puppet Masters -- Sott.net: "The United States sees the Cuban health system and Havana's sharing of such as a means of Cuba winning friends and allies in the Third World, particularly Latin America; a situation sharply in conflict with long-standing US policy to isolate Cuba. The United States in recent years has attempted to counter the Cuban international success by dispatching the US Naval Ship Comfort to the region. With 12 operating rooms and a 1,000-bed hospital, the converted oil tanker has performed hundreds of thousands of free surgeries in places such as Belize, Guatemala, Panama, El Salvador, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Nicaragua and Haiti."
