Oliver North: hero or buffoon?

North_OliverThe murder (officially a suicide) of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow and other Marines are tied to the use of El Toro’s assets to ferry weapons and supplies to the Contra rebel faction in Nicaragua and cocaine into the U.S. to fund an undeclared war in Nicaragua.

(SALEM)   BETRAYAL, written by Robert O’Dowd and Tim King, is the tragic story of toxic chemical exposure of Marines at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, the transport of cocaine into the US on CIA proprietary aircraft into El Toro in a convert operation to support an undeclared war in Nicaragua, the murders those who were a threat to blow the whistle on the illegal narcotrafficking and the blotched government cover-up.

A hypothetical

interview-artThings are not always what they seem…

(SAN FRANCISCO)   What if you had a movie about a television host and producer asked by the CIA to assassinate a despot, a movie generally hated by the critics.  I am talking, of course, about a movie much like Sony’s “The Interview.”

As a marketing ploy, the producer decides to generate a little controversy about the film by staging a hacking incident whereby emails are “leaked” painting Hollywood executives in a poor light, posting protected movie scripts online for public viewing, and threatening terrorist attacks at theaters across America.  

Sobering truths about America’s imperialist crimes against humanity

????????????????????“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. – Harold Pinter

Gary G. Kohls, MD for Global News Centre

(DULUTH)  British playwright Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. His powerful acceptance speech exposed the United States for its fascist, imperialist policies since World War II. His speech (delivered three years before he died in 2008) was an important glimpse into – and a reasonable summary of — the innumerable documentable US imperialistic crimes that have been secretly facilitated by our multinational corporations, our national security apparatus, our military leaders, our wealthy elites and the craven politicians who are beholden to those four realities that have shaped American foreign policy over the past 60 years.

2015 – Deciding between good and best

We only have a little bit of time.

Dr. Glenn Mollette Global News Centre

(NEWBURGH, Indiana)  2015 will be over almost quicker than you can say Happy New Year! Just look how fast 2014 sped by us all. Time rarely feels as if it’s standing still unless we are waiting on something to happen. Time only drags when we need something to happen like a cure for a disease, a job to open or a relative to come home from the Middle East. When time drags we make the mistake of wishing it away.

Anti-police rhetoric misunderstands the reality of inner city life

The new mayor, the first Democrat to be elected in New York for twenty years, represents a sharp turn from the close alliance between his predecessors, Rudolf Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg, and law enforcement.

(WASHINGTON DC)   The killings of two police officers in New York City has focused attention upon the anti-police rhetoric which, in the view of many, helped to create an atmosphere in which such an action could take place.

The New York gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, wrote on social media that he intended to kill cops and was angry about the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, who were killed by police officers in Ferguson, Missouri and New York.

Eelam Tamils make a choice – take a stand-election January 2015

Every Tamil in the island has his/her choice of how they should be governed like the Sinhalese have.   2015 could be a year of great change for Sri Lankan Tamils…

Article by Dr C P Thiagarajah

(MANAAR)  Uthayan newspaper reported that Mannar Catholic Bishop Rev Rajappu Joseph in his Christmas night mass had stated that what the country needed was a President who would be sympathetic or supportive of the political aspirations of the Tamils. We could infer from this sermon that a Tamil cannot be a president in the near future and that Tamils have to depend on the good sympathies of a Sinhala president. With all my 30 years government service  in Sinhala areas I have my serious doubts that such a Sinhala president will ever be found for another fifty years. The two main contestants in the forth-coming election in Jan 2015 are unsympathetic to Tamil problems and any solutions. Their manifesto simply exposes this fact. The manifesto are Sinhala/Buddhist centric. They are fighting for family dominations and wealth creation for the Sinhalese only.

Normalization of US-Cuba relations begins

cuba-usThe current Cuban government considers the U.S. presence in Guantánamo to be illegal and the Cuban-American Treaty to have been procured by the threat of force in violation of international law.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  President Obama’s move to normalize relations with Cuba deserves applause. Normalization, however, will not be complete until the U.S. ends its economic embargo and returns Guantánamo Bay to Cuba.

Normalization, as announced by President Obama includes, among other things, establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba, expansion of travel to Cuba, raising remittance levels from $500 to $2,000, expanding commercial exports/sales from the U.S. to Cuba, allow U.S. citizens to import additional goods from Cuba, U.S. credit and debit cards will be permitted to be used by travelers to Cuba, initiating efforts to increase Cubans’ access to communications, and U.S. review of Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism.
