American Racism on Display in Wikileaks Iran Cable

American Racism on Display in Wikileaks Iran Cable

Don't you just love Wikileaks and the extra, maybe only level of scrutiny applied to the back door dealings of governments revealed for what they truly are!
How they think despite the rhetoric presented to us in the form of "they hate us for our freedoms'.

So Long, America by Andrew P. Napolitano

So Long, America by Andrew P. Napolitano
Unfortunately he is right on with his comments about the birth of the nation, it's expansion into a world power and manipulation of it's citizenry to achieve it's goals.
Those goals are not compatible with a free society and have had to be controlled. Every empire, so far in history has run into the same problem.
Overreaching arrogance!

A troubling picture of G20 detention | Toronto & GTA | News | Toronto Sun

A troubling picture of G20 detention | Toronto & GTA | News | Toronto Sun
The time stamp shows June 2010 and its now November 2011. Gee that was quick. The reason they were jailed so long was so that they couldn't re-exercise their rights to disagree. Shades of 1930s Germany, without the show trials and summary executions.
If this was a crime and we were in the middle of a discussion it might even be suggested the police acted in a premeditated manner.

Rockefeller, Morgan, and War by Murray N. Rothbard

Rockefeller, Morgan, and War by Murray N. Rothbard
Circles within circles, the treacherous and profitable webs we weave. The cost of doing business? Millions of not only North American lives but millions of global inhabitants as well. This all culminated with the dropping of two nuclear devices against non combatants living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
'As it was then it is now'! The fruits of the corrupted tree!

Guy-Philippe Goldstein: How cyberattacks threaten real-world peace | Video on
Once again TED showcases a situation prevalent globally to threaten peace. And does so showcasing examples from real life situations.
A new 'arms' race has begun which could be more dangerous than the last one!

The End of History by Paul Craig Roberts

The End of History by Paul Craig Roberts
What a cynic he is! We were there to free Libyan citizens from the maniacal grip of the ruthless dictator. Weren't we?
How can he say that it was all done to extend some imaginable empire? That would mean our elected servants have been misleading us.
But there's even a scarier scenario! WHAT IF HE'S CORRECT?
Historically it seems very plausible.

Helen Fisher tells us why we love + cheat | Video on

Helen Fisher tells us why we love + cheat | Video on
What in the world has this video got to do with an anti war theme?
She talks about the overabundance of anti depressant prescriptions being passed out, and then says that "a world without love is a deadly place"!
That seems like a rhetorical statement but she explains it chemically and statistically. Perhaps John Lennon was correct when he penned "all we need is love".
Or perhaps there's more at play that we haven't tapped upon yet.

Analysis: F-35 jet a bargain $65M? - Canada - CBC News

Analysis: F-35 jet a bargain $65M? - Canada - CBC News
Even discussion of this with all the fiscal follies going on around the world is obscene.
Who is our enemy now that warrants such an expenditure? The only reason they're a threat at
all, whoever they are, is we sold them their equipment. All to chase the mighty dollar.
Now that's a real perpetual motion machine!

Storming Juno

I just finished watching STORMING JUNO, the dramatization of three groups of Canadian soldiers on D-Day, 1944. It was not the typical Hollywood style blood and guts war depiction.
It just showed them, ordinary guys in an impossible situation, trying to survive.
I thought one part was pretty telling when an actor said that most were there because the army paid $1/day. It was at a time when the economy back home was bleak.
Near the end there was a segment called REMEMBERING JUNO. They interviewed the survivors from that horror more than 65 years ago. Moments were still fresh wounds remembered at times during the documentary part for the veterans.
Despite my anti war stance this movie is important. Because it showcases the human spirit rising
above the environment into which it is placed! That part is truly uplifting.
Our complacency is leading us back to that scenario once again!

War, what is it good for?

As it says in the anti Vietnam song of a long gone but not forgotten era, NOTHING!
We are impressed with certain memes about our own individual reality. Whether it's a physical war of flesh and bone or one of the decimation of spirit it is still vile and reprehensible!
As the adage goes 'a picture is worth a thousand words', this one is 1000X 1000!
Thanks to Walther A. Skjaervik for the portrayal.
Hopefully a touch of humanity has returned to me as a result!

Niels Harrit -- Chemist - 9/11 Expert Testimony.mp4

And a little more to ponder.

Toronto Hearings

Due to it being a very event condensed weekend I came in late in the conversation and live stream coming from Ustream.
I am very heartened by this event being so public. The conversation should be out in the open not in the shadows. We, by nature, are not always agreeable or in unison, but should be able to agree to disagree. We, by nature, are neither perfect or omniscient, and by having this conversation will
be able to overcome those shortcomings and arrive at a truth.
Whether some major events in history are fact or fallacy, coincidence or conspiracy is not the point. The scrutiny to investigate by scientific norms in a fair and equal manner should be tantamount.
Some of the concepts discussed in this event are very scary, but seem, to me, to make sense. I, as mentioned before, do not have concrete evidence to either the fact or fallacy. I am however very intrigued to know if I'm right or wrong. Hopefully I'm wrong! Sadly, historically, I don't think I am!

Christianity and War by Laurence M. Vance

Christianity and War by Laurence M. Vance
In this time of rampaging profiteering that drives the military power complex the opposite, and correct view, in my humble opinion needs to be presented.
What possible good can come of our interfering with a country's internal process. When we do something to someone else that we would, hopefully, not tolerate
being done to ourselves, what does say of our integrity?
Exercise our freedom to destroy others' right to determine their own destiny?
Hopefully we can still remain to be an example for others to follow.

Norwegian censorship

Some retailers in Norway apparently are taking two violent computer games off the shelf. Why?
Their response is that the murderous Breivik 'used' these to 'hone' his skills. Although I don't agree with the playing of these violent and gory scenarios I also don't agree that they foster insane actions either.
Movies like SAW, HALLOWEEN, books like IT and Mike Slade's fare, or games like Mortal Kombat didn't create or encourage a generation of killers.
It may have desensitized individuals to be less empathetic, but then being trained by the military does that very effectively as well. As it was designed. If the argument had any validity then citizens of countries with mandatory military service would be all murderers.
Common on folks! A nut bar is still a nut bar! Or is this just the beginning strategy of a legal defense of the indefensible?

Culture of war

I have been a fan of war movies a long time so I don't pretend to be innocent when it comes to being indoctrinated. As I was growing up I would hear stories from relatives and my dad about the European conflict. He was a teenager during those years.
Due to my heritage perhaps I was interested in why events happened the way they did. I was even enamoured with the whole nationalistic theme. The folly of youth!
Not until later did I start to realize the whole concept of propaganda involved! Now an entire industry is based on digital warfare entertainment. That's along with the daily scenarios updated by the talking heads on network television. Enemies are friends, friends are enemies. Who's to say?
Hopefully we can decipher this mess before we are led down a path of no return.

I tried to stay away from CNN coverage today but during a channel change went there briefly.
Long enough for me to stay and watch a few minutes. I guess I'm a little prejudiced against the cable channel due to their coverage or lack of the Air France crash at our Pearson airport years ago. During a heavy rainstorm it skidded off the end of the runway. They inquired as to how many casualties and decided it was not worthy news because their were no deaths. But I transgress.
The coverage I saw on CNN today were Norwegians crowding a very wide street, silently marching, holding flowers, to honour the citizenry slain in explosion and massacre. Kudos to CNN for the coverage and mostly kudos to the Norwegians who participated. It reminded me of the Amish response when their schoolchildren were slain, and their compassion afterwards.
It was, we can hope, a nut bar or group thereof, severely damaged responsible for these events. Our only saving response should be to deal with it the best we can and mete out the appropriate response, or are at jeopardy to become a mirror image of the enemy.
You can't fight fire with fire!

The charade begins

Today's events in Norway prompted me to respond. This, unfortunately, is just the sort of copy editors and journalists dream about. Everything from religious fundamentalism, violent movies, video games, bad schooling, bad parenting, and the list goes on and on.
But is it really the genesis of a killing spree of this magnitude? I don't know.
Since we're talking of hypotheticals would a crazy, right wing, neo con, gun nut, in possession of a firearm have trimmed the death count? But that's not even part of the discussion.
But, apparently one fact is concrete; he killed people continuously for an hour. It appears at this point no one defended themselves. Why? Where were the police with all their powers and fancy weaponry? Perhaps the option of legal defense should be available, during the fact, not after, when excuses are luxuries.
