‘War on Gaza: One Year Later’

Just remember, The world’s rulers, the world’s most powerful nations, do ‘not’ torture, by definition. Even if you’re torturing an entire nation, it’s not torture – if you dominate and dictate and hold life and death and your hand and can simply command that truth and fact is whatever you say it is. Those who ‘the powerful’ say torture, do, whether they do or not. The U.S. and Israel are torturing the Palestinians thoroughly and continuously, which those who care to notice know. As Noam Chomsky notes, It’s not just Israel committing this ongoing crime against humanity. It’s a full partner with the U.S. in the project. Continue reading

Chomsky upcoming on BBC’s Hardtalk

Chomsky offers straight talk on BBC’s Hardtalk, with which I’m not familiar. Viewers are invited to submit questions for Chomsky’s upcoming Hardtalk episode. Two will be selected for presentation to Chomsky.

Nostalgia For The Past

The Will To Intervene plan, being pushed by Canadian notables, and the R2P doctrine, recently discussed (usefully) at the UN and hardly covered by the major media, are, together with ‘democracy promotion’ organizations and operations, being sold to us as the answer to trouble that these salespeople, our ‘leaders’, cause, in order to lull us into complacency about imperialism. “You can relax. We are on top of things. We care and we will quell the fires,” they create. Chomsky said it best when he explained the ‘good faith’ doctrine. When self-proclaimed saviors want us to support them and rely on them, then we must look at their record before we accede to their demands for support (which usually includes our sacrificing economically and socially) and for bodies to fight wars and so on. Their rhetoric won’t suffice. Their accounts of their actions won’t suffice. Only our direct examination of their past deeds will suffice. We have the ‘responsibility to protect’ ourselves against wolf-like leaders. Continue reading
