Welcome to the New Syria

By Michael Collins

The assault on Damascus by Syrian rebels and terrorist murder of the Syrian Defense Minister occurred just as the Red Cross announced that the fighting in Syria was officially a civil war. This is an odd reward system for military action by the Free Syria Army. Commit enough acts of violence and you’re rewarded with special protections that apply in times of war. (Image)

The rebel Free Syria Army attacks cities and villages, disrupts the Syrian economy, and is in the business of suicide bombing. It has the material and diplomatic support of Saudi Arabia and the other oil oligarchies plus the big guns in NATO. So-called Syrian experts supporting the carnage are amply funded by United States sponsored nongovernment organizations. Continue reading

Who Are the Top 1%?

Dr. Eowyn
Fellowship of the Minds

“Those who don’t know the game or are assets and manipulators of  the game will want to ‘endorse’ people and organisations they say they support  in cleaning up America – but they will be the very people and groups that are  systematically destroying America.”David Icke, October 16, 2011

The movement that began as Occupy Wall Street in New York has spread to other cities across America as well as countries.  In Italy, the Occupiers instigated a riot in Rome, torching cars and smashing windows, which required armed police to be brought in.

In the name of equity, the Occupiers say they are the 99% opposed to the top 1%, the filthy rich. So who are America’s Top 1%?

Pakistani Intelligence on the Defensive

By Brian Dowing

That Osama bin Laden has been living comfortably in Abbottabad and evidently directing al Qaeda from there – all within earshot of a Pakistani military facility – has been a tremendous embarrassment to Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), but it comes as no surprise to Indian or many other intelligence services, though realization in Washington has been too long in coming. Paradoxically, US intelligence’s recent success in Abbottabad has underscored a long-running failure.

Walk Like an Egyptian Better yet, imagine that you’re walking in their shoes and think about how you’d feel about the United States.  If you’re 48 years old, Mubarak has been your “president”, read dictator since your 18th birthday.

You have seen election after election stolen by Mubarak and his cronies.  You’ve seen the police assume the power to intimidate any opposition to Mubarak.  If you’re enough of a threat due to enlightened political views or there’s a member of the police who has a personal grudge, you worry about being harassed, beaten, and tortured.  Your country has made little economic progress.  You can leave Egypt but you stay.  Your future is limited unless you belong to the very small financial elite.  When you and tens of millions of others for similar or more pressing reasons have finally had enough, a rebellion breaks out which rivets the entire world’s attention on the demand for self-determination and basic human rights.

Revolutions Know No Color

By Michael Collins

The legitimate demands of the people everywhere have no color, nor do their revolutions. These are not the revolutions arising from staged events by the White House, the National Endowment for Democracy, and other meddlers. We are witnessing what Mark Levine called human nationalism. The people of Tunisia, now Egypt, are, “taking control of their politics, economy and identity away from foreign interests and local elites alike in a manner that has not been seen in more than half a century.” (Image)
