Arrester Henry Kissinger!

25. november 2016 Legg igjen en kommentar

Henry Kissinger er invitert til Oslo for å halde foredrag om verdsfreden og det amerikanske presidentvalet. Dette skjer i samband med utdelinga av Nobels fredspris 10 desember og møtet er i regi av Nobelinstituttet.

Kissinger er ingen kven som helst. Han var nasjonal rådgjevar for tryggleik 1969 – 1975 og amerikansk utanriksminister 1973 – 1977.  Dette var under presidentane Richard Nixon og Gerald Ford.  Og sjølv blei han tildelt Nobels fredspris i 1973, ei av Nobelkomiteens mange kontroversielle utdelingar.

Men  Kissinger er nok mest kjend som ein notorisk krigsforbrytar. Mellom 1969 og 1975 drap amerikanske bombefly 750000 sivile i Kambodsja under påskudd av å øydelegge nordvietnamesiske lagre i landet. I ettertid har det kome fram at desse lagra ikkje eksisterte. I tillegg kjem alle dei sivile som mista livet som resultat av amerikansk krigføring i Vietnam, både i nord og syd.

Ukraine in the middle of modern imperialism

Vi har fått inn et innlegg fra skribent, aktivist og kunstner Ivar Jørdre:

One of the most interesting things about supporting or not supporting Ukraine and by what means is the issues of money transactions by foreign investors or speculators. It is several examples on this and here are some: Pierre Omidyar (a French-born Iranian American entrepreneur and philanthropist, who is the founder and chairman of the eBay auction site) co-funded Ukraine revolution groups with US government, documents show. Just hours after the ouster of president Yanukovych, one of Pierre Omidyar’s newest hires at national security blog “The Intercept,” was already digging for the truth. Marcy Wheeler, who is the new site’s “senior policy analyst,” speculated that the Ukraine revolution was likely a “coup” engineered by “deep” forces on behalf of “Pax Americana”: “There’s quite a bit of evidence of coup-ness. How many levels deep interference from both sides are there?” Mark Ames at http://pando.com decided to investigate these claims.

And what he found was this:
Wheeler is partly correct. Pando has confirmed that the American government – in the form of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) – played a major role in funding opposition groups prior to the revolution. Moreover, a large percentage of the rest of the funding to those same groups came from a US billionaire who has previously worked closely with US government agencies to further his own business interests. This could also mean a US-backed “coup”? Any way evidence shows that US investment was a force multiplier for many of the groups involved in overthrowing Yanukovych.

Press TV has interviewed former American intelligence linguist Scott Rickard to get his perspective on the current events unfolding in Ukraine and Russia’s position regarding the situation. Scott Rickard: “You know the West has invested over five billion dollars in – the US government alone – alongside of what Victoria Nuland (Ass. Sec. of St. for Eur. and Eurasian Aff.) was talking about and got caught talking online with the ambassador from the Ukraine. The US has been orchestrating this overthrow in the Ukraine for quite some time. And you have an individual, you know, the founder of eBay; you’ve got Pierre Omidyar who has invested money alongside George Soros. So, this is a scenario that has been played out here for several years in creating what they call an uprising that has been fabricated by the West.”

KrigshisserenTony Blair gjør seg til talsmann for nok en krig i Irak

Den tidligere britiske statsministeren Tony Blair mener Den islamske staten ikke kan slås uten vestlige bakkestyrker i Irak og Syria.

Han hisset på seg store deler av befolkningen i Storbritannia da han gikk i ledtog med USAs George W. Bush om deltakelse i Irak-krigen i 2003. Nå melder Tony Blair seg igjen på debatten om internasjonal krigføring i Irak. I tillegg ønsker Blair nå også krigsdeltakelse fra Vesten på syrisk territorium.

– Med mindre man er innstilt på å bekjempe disse folkene på bakken, kan man klare å holde dem nede, men ikke å slå dem, sier Blair i et intervju med BBC. Les mer…
