Are NATO Forces Preparing A Ground Attack?

By Sara Flounders

It is important to understand that NATO countries with the full complicity of the corporate media and the ICC are spreading this Big Lie in order to win support for and close down all opposition to a ground assault of Libya.

NATO attacks ordinary Libyans at petrol pump


As NATO tells the world to prepare for a post-Gaddafi era, coalition bombs continue to blitz the Libyan capital. Gasoline queues snake through Tripoli with fuel in short supply. A scenario made worse with tankers a regular target for air strikes.

Remote Control Killing Like Sport

CIA sending armed drones into Yemen

Washington Post


The CIA is expected to begin operating armed drones over Yemen, expanding the hunt for Al Qaeda operatives in a country where counterterrorism efforts have been disrupted by political chaos, US officials said. The plan to use CIA-operated Predator and other unmanned aircraft reflects a decision by President Obama that the Al Qaeda threat in Yemen has grown so serious that patrols by US military drones are not enough...

Obamas war on the rule of law

Reason Reason
by A. Barton Hinkle


With Obama s election, the nation supposedly said goodbye to [the Bush regime s audacious policies of lawbreaking]. The clouds broke, the fog lifted, and the sunlight of civil liberties once again bathed the nation in its golden hue. Except: Nothing like that happened. Instead, the Obama administration adopted every single one of the policies listed above. Some of the more principled progressives have voiced outrage and a sense of betrayal. The more partisan types have politely averted their gaze. But Obama has not confined his disdain for the rule of law to the Bush inheritance. He has carved out new realms for it...


Bachmann Calls for Huge Corporate Tax Cut Alongside Tax Increase for the Working Poor

Pat Garofalo, ThinkProgress: 'Several of the 2012 GOP presidential hopefuls have laid out economic platforms that would include huge cuts in the corporate tax rate. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) called for lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent, while former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) went a step further, calling for a cut to 15 percent. In an interview published today by the Wall Street Journal, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) decided to one-up both Romney and Pawlenty, calling for a reduction in the corporate tax rate to 9 percent. Adding insult to injury, Bachmann wants to pair that huge tax cut with giant tax reductions for the rich, as well as a tax increase on the working poor.'

JP Morgan Records Largest Profit Ever, While Community Devastated by Its Predatory Lending Sheds 1,000 Workers

Zaid Jilani, ThinkProgress: 'One of the many tragic stories of the Great Recession involves Jefferson County, Alabama. As Matt Taibbi explained in an article in Rolling Stone last year, mega bank JP Morgan Chase used a predatory refinancing deal on sewer bonds to reap billions while the local area was financially devastated. Now, Jefferson County, still reeling from the effects of JP Morgan s dirty deals, is moving to place nearly 1,000 public workers on administrative leave without pay, as the state Legislature failed last week to come to the municipality s aid with any fiscal support. In doing so, the county hopes to save 'just over $12 million.' Yet while the public workers of Jefferson County will soon face the prospect of losing their wages and livelihoods through no fault of their own, JP Morgan Chase continues to rake in lavish profits.'

Down in the Ditch

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: 'There is never a shortage of Stupid in American politics, but by normal standards, our recent history has been pretty spectacular. Rep. Anthony Weiner is caught in what could very easily go down in history as the single most absurd sex scandal to ever unfold. The Republican leadership continues to play chicken with the debt limit, making even the titans of the financial industry nervous. Michele Bachmann is being taken seriously by the 'mainstream' news media after the first GOP debate ... and as far as Stupid goes, really, that s all you need to say. Sometimes, however, the Stupid skyrockets to new and heretofore unknown heights. It takes a special kind of purebred dunderhead to raise the benchmark, and in that spirit, I give you Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), who opined last week that once Iraq becomes a rich and prosperous country, they should repay the United States for the money spent on the invasion and occupation. Let that sink in for a moment.'

US-Pakistani Relations: The Tail Still Wags the Dog

Melvin A. Goodman, Truthout: 'The US-Pakistani relationship is one of the most complicated bilateral relationships in the world. Since the start of the cold war, the United States has needed support from the Islamabad government and, as a result, has ignored Pakistani perfidy. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the United States needed secret bases in Pakistan for U-2 reconnaissance flights over the Soviet Union and, therefore, disregarded Pakistani military dictatorships. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the United States needed logistical support for its secret opening to China and overlooked human rights violations in Pakistan. In the 1980s, Pakistan served as a conduit for US assistance to the anti-Soviet mujihadeen forces and, therefore, ignored Pakistan s secret development of nuclear weapons.'


Koch Brothers Led Fight to Defend Formaldehyde Despite Carcinogenic Evidence


Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez and Ralph Nader, Democracy Now!: 'The government has added formaldehyde to a list of known carcinogens, despite years of lobbying by the chemical industry. Formaldehyde is found in plastics and often used in plywood, particle board, mortuaries and hair salons. The government also said Friday that styrene, which is used in boats, bathtubs and in disposable foam plastic cups and plates, may cause cancer. The conservative billionaire Koch brothers have led the lobbying effort against labeling formaldehyde as a carcinogen. Georgia-Pacific, a subsidiary of Koch Industries, is one of the country s top producers of formaldehyde. We get reaction from longtime consumer advocate Ralph Nader.'
