OpEdNews - Article: The US Press Sell-out on Iraq War

OpEdNews - Article: The US Press Sell-out on Iraq War: "My knowledge that Iraq's WMD was being exaggerated was merely what anyone could gain from close reading of public sources, including some in the mainstream press: the McClatchy news articles by Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel (who later won Pulitzers for their reporting) as well as a few buried articles in the Washington Post and Newsweek debunking the "evidence" being presented by Bush-Cheney-Powell-Rice-Rumsfeld et al."

SYRIA REGIME CHANGE: United Nations Duplicity, Kofi Annan and Diplomats Wives.by Felicity Arbuthnot

SYRIA REGIME CHANGE: United Nations Duplicity, Kofi Annan and Diplomats Wives.: "America’s decades long plan (i, ii) for another puppet government and quasi client state status for the country is well underway. Any observer of the shenanigans within the US Embassy in Damascus would be forgiven for mistaking it for a covert operations centre rather that a seat of diplomacy.(iii) Michel Chossudovsky gives graphic life to Ambassador Ford’s - surely coincidentally - eminently pertinent and relevant qualifications.(iv)"

OpEdNews - Article: How Liberty Was Lost

OpEdNews - Article: How Liberty Was Lost
It is possible that becoming unplugged from the Matrix is a gradual lifelong experience for the few who pay attention. The longer they live, the more they notice that reality contradicts the government's and media's explanations. The few who can remember important stuff after watching reality shows and their favorite sports teams and fantasy movies gradually realize that there is no "new economy" to take the place of the manufacturing economy that was given away to foreign countries.

    How Dare Russia     : Information Clearing House: Bush and Cheney are selling books confessing to the crime of war and all that comes with it, including lawless imprisonment and torture.
