America Waging War In Somalia

America is waging a war in Somalia, it is using Ethiopian troops so the craptastic media report about the Ethiopian-Somali conflict, but it is another front of the Empire’s wars. Now some quick history-

2003 Eritrea joins the coalition of the willing, America invades Iraq.

2007 America invades Somalia using Ethiopian forces as a proxy, the global media rarely mention US involvement and characterise the war as just between Ethiopia and Somalia.

2007 Eritrea threatened to be added to America’s list of state sponsors of terrorism.

And now the coup de grace, ladies & gentlemen just savour the nerve of the empire and savour the hacks who accept it-

Eritrea is the archrival of Ethiopia, and diplomats say the two have been waging a proxy war in Somalia since last year.

American exceptionalism is just so wonderful isn’t it? And such wonderfully co-operative journalists, gosh it makes this post from earlier today look almost psychic.

Friday! The Rolling Stones- Gimme Shelter

So relevant for many reasons, but also tonight a Friday shout out! To Rafael who has been on hurricane watch, according to the weather people Puerto Rico looks like it will make out ok and miss the main event but tropical storms are predicted. Personally I see this as a plot by God to stop me being on his podcast (after all someone made my cat knock that water all over my remotes, hmmm), paranoid? Delusions of grandeur? Hey just because a supreme being who may or may not exist is or isn’t out to get or not get you doesn’t mean you’re not or are paranoid, or something, probably, huh? Read the rest of this entry »

The Bush Scam On Iran Means Cheney Is Winning

I was about to write what America declaring a Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a ‘terrorist organisation’ really meant but hey, Will Bunch says it well-

The White House hawks in Dick Cheney’s office and elsewhere who want to stage an attack on Iran are clearly winning the internal power stuggle. And an often overlooked sub-plot on the long road toward war with Tehran is this: How could Bush stage an attack on Iran without the authorization of a skeptical, Democratic Congress?

Today, the White House has solved that pesky problem in one fell swoop. By explicitly linking the Iranian elite guard into the post 9/11 “global war on terror” in Iraq and Afghanistan, Bush’s lawyers would certainly now argue that any military strike on Iran is now covered by the October 2002 authorization to use military force in Iraq, as part of their overly sweeping response to the 2001 attacks.

Bush can now deploy any force he wants against Iran and by his mobs twisted legal principles it is all above board. I doubt the dem congress would be much of an obstacle, only Kucinich has nailed this for what it is-

“nothing more than an attempt to deceive Americans into yet another war — this time with Iran…The belligerent Bush Administration is using this pending designation to convince the American public into accepting that a war with Iran is inevitable,” argues Kucinich.

“This designation will set the stage for more chaos in the region because it undercuts all of our diplomatic efforts,” he adds. explaining that, “This new label provides further evidence for Iran’s leaders that there is no point to engage in diplomatic talks with the United States if our actions point directly to regime change.”

Mmmmm Sulphur

A wave of spam comments have hit in the last 24 hours, steps are being taken, just ignore them, I will periodically delete them. However one comment came from an anonymous source, not even an ip, I found it strangely disturbing yet compelling and although this seems ridiculous I could swear there was a whiff of sulphur and apple pie as I read it. So I post it here in full:-

Hi, how you doin’? Me? Busy busy. See I been spending a lot of time sneaking up on civilians then shooting them dead, of course sometimes that’s a little too labour intensive so I use a nice big car bomb, Ka-boom! Dead easy and loads of death. There are a few other notable techniques, like paying and training disturbed young people to torture and kill civilians so their actions then terrorise your victim’s further, takes a fair bit of cash I can tell you. Now strictly speaking I should not be telling you all this, you see what us terrorist masterminds do is use the principle of deniability. We always sow enough doubt, or make sure the trigger man is once removed from direct connection to us. Best of all is to outwardly and continuously pledge allegiance to principles of equality and justice, that way peoples own credulous minds become a weapon to destroy any suspicions about one’s activities. But don’t mistake that for a minute, no, no. Fact is I just can’t resist great big bloody messes of limbs, guts and brains, it gives me a thrill which frankly sex cannot even touch. And it always has, I mean at some point I suppose it had a rationale, personal gain, profit or whatever, but now I just don’t know any other way.

The wonderful thing is I just will never ever be brought to account, just name some famous mass murderers- Jack the Ripper, Hitler, John Wayne Gacy, Stalin and even Bush. Y’see you just came up with names of people, not even close to identifying me. Consequently one becomes a little…arrogant, yeah I’m happy to admit that, in fact I don’t care, want to criticise me? I’ll rape your mother with a broken bottle in front of you then have her gnaw your balls off on the promise that if she does, you can both live, and if I’m feeling really mean- I’ll keep that promise. Arrogant actually is a long time ago, over confidence is a concept that doesn’t apply either, fact is I am pretty well a God, I have power of life and death over all humanity and millions worship me unquestioningly. Which is why I feel confident I can say this, “Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan & Syria are all state sponsors of terrorism”.

Okay, so given what I have previously told you that sentence does seem outrageously hypocritical, in fact that doesn’t really even begin to touch it, frankly words are not enough to describe a mass murderer taking the moral high ground over others, and that’s not even the half of it! No! I’m only saying they are so you’ll cheer me when I murder me some more of them bastards! Fuck yeah. Look at me! All authoritative on who is right and who is wrong even while I clean the shreds of vagina off my razor (it’s ok, she was just collateral). And what gives me a real thrill is the mechanical repeating of every fetid lie I spout, echoing around the earth at the speed light. Nevermind some question it, but simply by my uttering it, whatever inanity, whatever transparent lie, whatever, WHATEVER! It is reported to the world simply because I am so important, I will never, never ever be ignored. Certainly I will never, ever be subject to the same judgement I make on everyone else! Hilarious!

Deny me all you like but my words pound into your mind from a million sources. The really good bit is, slowly, ever so slowly, imperceptibly even, they begin to find purchase and sooner or later, you’ll be mine. I hear there are some hold outs, excellent! It helps support my other lies- free speech, democracy, freedom, equality, all those buzz words for the bleeding hearts that buy me so much credit. Why do people lie? Because it works. Bless ‘em so many people have a default setting that gives the benefit of the doubt, that if someone is willing to speak those words there must some truth in them, priceless. Works just every time.
