  • The Second Iran-Iraq War and the American Switch
    • Someone correct me if I am wrong but weren't those chaps that McCain took pics with in Syria ISIS fellas? I recall that some of those anti Assad fighters in that photo opp were fingered as having been involved in kidnappings

  • United States, Israel opposed Mandela, supported Apartheid
    • Thanks for saying what the media is not talking about. I lived in Africa in the 70s and 80s. and like most of my fellow students, we were media savvy and followed the politics of anti apatheid movement. The west, save for a few countries was firmly on the side of apatheid. When apatheid South Africa invaded South West Africa (Namibia) and advanced to towards Angola to support a western lackey known as Savimbi, it was the Cubans who came the rescue and helped push back the boers from parts of Angola and northern Namibia. In those days Mandela and Africa independent movements were either terrorists or communists and the west did not give a hoot about freedom. The rest is revisionist history.

  • South Africa: Label West Bank Squatter Products; Israel: You Apartheid State!
    • Aren't Israelis always proud of their Jewish state. Why would they want to hide "made in Israel" label? Just leave it to the buyers to make the judgment call and the products will likely rot in the shelves. Alternatively, they can borrow made in USA stamp. US would willingly lend it, not questions asked.

  • Can Bookstores be Saved?
    • Well if you are buying your books from web-based book stores only like Amazon, and avoiding to pay taxes to your local economy then that this is what you get.

  • Egyptian Official: Israelis Might be Behind attacks by Sharks, which seem to be Beasts of Prey
    • Such a clever propaganda gimmick by Egyptian Govt to deflect its citizens from wiki leaks revelations of how two-faced Arab leaders say one thing in public then say the opposite when consorting with US diplomats to undermine the interests of their own citizens.

  • Palin: "We must support our North Korean Allies"
    • So true and whenever these obvious weaknesses are pointed to her supporters in GOP and Tea parties ,some have even said that this lack proper education i s actually huge positive. And mark you she has an 80% support in GOP and the right.

      I would not be surprised if she wins GOP POTUS nomination.

  • 28 More US Fuel Trucks Set Ablaze in Pakistan, 6 Killed, as Convoy Boycott Continues
    • What about Iran route? That would seem to me as the most cost effective and shortest given its proximity to the gulf with high concentration of US troops. US did get significant logistical and intelligence support from the Iranians after 911 even though that gesture was not returned in kind. All it needs to do is to set aside its pride and ask. You never know what it may lead to..... After all, Taliban and Iranians are avowed enemies

  • Collapse of Kabul Bank Points to Fatal Corruption of Karzai Government
    • Well said Christaine!
      When if comes to foreign interventions, the US govt always takes all the credits ( which rarely, if any, happen) and assign all the bad things to foreign puppets -read Ngo Dinh Diem, in Vietnam, Saddam, Gen. Musharraf, --- and so on. Karzai is a product of US like Chalabi was in Iraq. They were assets that were recruited and paid for by CIA.
      US never installs a genuine leader who has grassroots support unless compelled to do so in these kinds of situations. Karzai understands very well that he will, ultimately be the fall guy once everything unravels as it certainly will. Waiting for the time when Mahmoud Abbas will be demonized in MSM media after the eventual failure of the peace process in Palestine.
