Libya's Neighbors Prepare for NATO's Boots By Franklin P. Lamb

 :Information Clearing House: ICH: "This observer has had the opportunity to visit some of these neighborhoods the past couple of nights and will continue to do so. As noted earlier, contrary to some media reports by the BBC, CNN and CBS, Tripoli’s neighborhoods during the cool evenings with wafting sea breezes, are not tense, “dangerous for foreigners and in control of trigger happy soldiers or militias.” The latter assessment is nonsense. Americans and others are welcomed and their presence appreciated. Libyans are anxious to explain their points of views, a common one of which is that they are not all about Qaddafi but about protecting the family, homes, and neighborhoods from foreign invaders. A majority does support the Qaddafi leadership which is what they received with their mother’s milk, but nearly all emphasize that for them and their friends it is very much about defending their revolution and country first. They appear to this observer to be very well informed about the motives of NATO and those countries that are intensively targeting their leader and their officials without regard to civilians being killed. It’s about oil and reshaping Africa and the Middle East"

   Libya: Unending American Hostility   :      Information Clearing House: ICH: "Do these grownups really believe what comes out of their mouths? Does Mr. Eikenberry actually think that 'America has never sought to occupy any nation in the world'? Sixty-six years after World War II ended, the United States still has major bases in Germany and Japan; 58 years after the end of the Korean War, tens of thousands of American armed forces continue to be stationed in South Korea; for over a century, the United States has occupied Guantanamo Bay in Cuba against the fervent wishes of the Cuban people. And what other term shall we use to describe the American presence in Iraq for more than eight years? And Afghanistan for almost ten?"

Outrageous: GA Homeowners Association Says "Sorry, Disabled Veteran, You Can't Have a House" | AlterNet: "Imagine you served your country as an Army sergeant who served two tours of duty in Iraq. Imagine that during that second tour in 2008 an IED device exploded, causing you to sustain lifelong disabilities: paralysis on your right side and the inability to speak brought about by a stroke tied to the injuries from the blast."

  Demystifying 9/11: Israel and the Tactics Of Mistake    :      Information Clearing House: ICH

  Demystifying 9/11: Israel and the Tactics Of Mistake    :      Information Clearing House: ICH: "I am also absolutely certain as a strategic analyst that 9/11 itself, from which all else flows, was a classic Mossad-orchestrated operation. But Mossad did not do it alone. They needed local help within America (and perhaps elsewhere) and they had it, principally from some alumni of PNAC (the misnamed Project for a New American Century) and their affiliates within and outside of the US Government (USG), who in the 9/11 attacks got the “catalytic event” they needed and craved to take the US to war on Israel’s behalf, only eight months after coming into office."

Senator Wants US-Israeli Op Against Flotilla

Senator Wants US-Israeli Op Against Flotilla: "A U.S. senator wants U.S. special operations forces to help Israel halt a Gaza-bound international aid flotilla that includes a vessel carrying a number of American veterans, one of whom is a Sailor who served aboard the USS Liberty, the ship that Israel infamously attacked in 1967."

On the mend? America comes to its senses - Opinion - Al Jazeera English: "At periodic intervals, the American body politic has shown a marked susceptibility to messianic fevers. Whenever an especially acute attack occurs, a sort of delirium ensues, manifesting itself in delusions of grandeur and demented behavior.
By the time the condition passes and a semblance of health is restored, recollection of what occurred during the illness tends to be hazy. What happened? How'd we get here? Most Americans prefer not to know. No sense dwelling on what's behind us. Feeling much better now! Thanks!"

OpEdNews - Article: In this Country at Least, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised-David Glenn Cox

OpEdNews - Article: In this Country at Least, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised"Slowly, the sleeping will awake as poverty cuts cable's umbilical cord. Silently and stealthily the discontented will begin to stir, gradually those on both the left and the right will see through the three penny opera of American politics. It is a formula older than Caesar, mass poverty begets mass anger and mass anger begets mass violence. In his wisdom Caesar knew that it was better to feed the people than to fight them. Any nation which sets itself upon its people is a scorpion which stings its self. The war has begun even if in this country, at least, the revolution will not be televised."

OpEdNews - Article: Whom Does The Law Serve?

OpEdNews - Article: Whom Does The Law Serve?: "Note also that the alleged victim has a very high-priced major league lawyer representing her that she not only does not need but also obviously cannot afford to pay. It is not up to the maid to prosecute the defendant. That job is done at public expense by the New York attorney general. The alleged victim has another high-priced lawyer in France whose job is to round up Strauss-Kahn victims among French women with the prospect of sharing in a settlement."
