5/13/8 Re-Igniting Lebanon's Internal Fire: Not a "Civil War"; Red Flag Over Nepal; "Final Offensive" Against Venezuela

"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude."
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

digest comment:
KATRINA KILLERS, WORST MASS MURDERERS IN MODERN HISTORY, KEEP SHOCKING THE WORLD WITH COLD-BLOODED, CRIMINAL DEPRAVITY...
After some perfunctory phony 'humanitarian' questions the u.s. media gets to the point, arrogantly grilling China's ambassador about the political damage to China and its 'coming out' Olympics party from all the recent assaults it has undergone ... relentless anti-China bashing of its most feared capitalist strategic, rival the u.s. engineered 'dalai lama 'free tibet/darfur' massive psywar propaganda campaign ...now this 'natural disaster. With disingenuous 'concern' NPR interrogated him about China's opinion of Myanmar's refusal of u.s. "aid" [i.e. u.s. military intervention on top of the thousands of pro-u.s. missionaries, NGOs, u.n. personnel, etc. already well-entrenched and actively subverting the regime.]. It's beyond comprehension how nations and their dignitaries tolerate u.s. imperialist propaganda trickery on top of crimes to undermine their national sovereignty. As the digest has pointed out before, the irony is that China was u.s. most feared 'enemy' as a revolutionary socialist country, now it is again enemy #1 because it has too successfully restored capitalism and the inevitable political inequality and contradictions inherent in capitalism.

5/8/8 U.S.Aid to Myanmar: "The political effects of natural disasters are difficult to predict."

digest commentary:

THE INHUMAN DESTRUCTION AND SUFFERING IN MYANMAR, AND MOST OF THE WORLD, IS FUNDAMENTALLY MAN-MADE. MAINLY AT THIS MOMENT IN HISTORY, MADE-IN-U.S. THE SYSTEMIC POVERTY and FAMINE IN OPPRESSED NATIONS IS PRODUCED BY GLOBALIZED CAPITALISM (e.g. imperialism), SINCE THE U.S. 'FIXED' AN EARLIER CRISIS VIA WORLD WAR 2 TO SECURE GLOBAL DOMINATION....ITS 'MANIFEST DESTINY'.

U.S. "AID" DEEPENS THE HORRIFIC CONDITIONS ITS DOMINATION CREATES. YET THIS MONSTROUS SYSTEM, GROWN FAT ON GENOCIDE, SLAVERY AND WAR, CONVINCES CLASS & RACE PRIVILEGED BENEFICIARIES IT IS THE 'CURE' FOR ITS SAVAGE PREDATIONS ... WITH THEIR SUPPORT. DRESS UP THESE MACHIAVELLIAN EXERCISES IN EXQUISITELY CONSTRUCTED PROPAGANDA, THROW IN A FEW PRO-DEMOCRACY 'COLOR REVOLUTIONS' FUNDED BY U.S. & NGO GLOBAL 'INITIATIVES' TO 'NATION-BUILD FAILED STATES' AGAINST 'TERRORISTS' PLOTTING TO SINK GOOD-SHIP-LOLLIPOP'S HUMANITARIAN MISSIONS, CREATE FREQUENT DIRE THREATS TO LOYAL CITIZENS' NATIONAL SECURITY, ESPECIALLY 'INTERCEPTED PLOTS' BY DARK-SKINNED 'EXTREMISTS' JEALOUS OF OUR GOODS, AND BEHIND IT ALL, EVERYWHERE, ARABS, MUSLIMS, TRYING TO UNDEMOCRATICALLY TAKE OVER THE WORLD, UNGRATEFUL FOR OUR AID AND DEVELOPMENT IN IRAQ, PALESTINE, AFRICA, AND ALL CORNERS OF THE GLOBE IT CONSIDERS ITS PRIVATE PROPERTY.

Historically u.s. capitalism has (temporarily) resolved deep structural crises (as opposed to trade cyclical crises) by restructuring global capital and the world map under its hegemony via imperialist war. This is the intended function of the bogus 'war on terrorism'. The fact that it has boomeranged and exacerbated the capital crisis, means U.S. measures in the 'homeland' and worldwide will become ever more extreme: increasingly it must tighten the fascist infrastructure screws revealing its basic predatory nature.

4/27/8 Killing Hunger

Digest commentary:
Super-exploitation, savage state terrorist oppression, war, starvation, illness and genocidal slaughter is the bedrock of amerika and its bloody empire. Racism is the ideology driving and justifying its war against oppressed nations and peoples worldwide, and here in the ghettos and barrios of the beast.

So-called "developing" countries, oppressed nations, are plundered and pillaged by capitalist development, investment and "humanitarian aid". Imperialist "solutions" to the crises it creates are pretexts for intensifying and expanding capital domination. Last week it discovered a "new food crisis", caused by "high prices" calling for more "free trade" and other killer U.S.. UN, WB, IMF etc. interventions. Maximizing capital accumulation requiring the elimination of rivals and resistance is systemic necessity, not electoral policy, necessary and relentless because capital is insatiable, it must expand ... or die. Dehumanizing and eradicating "collateral", billions of "unproductive" "surplus" human beings is the part of its "business model".

But in its exceptionally racist arrogance what capital's henchmen cannot deal with is the subversive, revolutionary potential of the debasement and impoverishment it creates...the fact that capitalism ultimately produces its own gravediggers as Marx put it.

Justice dept. Gives C.I.A. Tactics Legal Rationale
“The fact that an act is undertaken to prevent a threatened terrorist attack, rather than for the purpose of humiliation or abuse, would be relevant to a reasonable observer in measuring the outrageousness of the act ...
“to rise to the level of an outrage” and thus be prohibited under the Geneva Conventions, conduct “must be so deplorable that the reasonable observer would recognize it as something that should be universally condemned”

"We, the winners, are a minority......We live in an age of multiple truths. He who warns of the "clash of civilizations" is incontestably right.....One of the defining bifurcations of the future will be the conflict between information masters and information victims.......
Information destroys traditional jobs and traditional cultures; it seduces, betrays, yet remains invulnerable. How can you counterattack the information others have turned upon you? There is no effective option other than competitive performance. For those individuals and cultures that cannot join or compete with our information empire, there is only inevitable failure (of note, the internet is to the techno-capable disaffected what the United Nations is to marginal states: it offers the illusion of empowerment and community) ... The next century will indeed be American, but it will also be troubled. We will find ourselves in constant conflict, much of it violent. The United States Army is going to add a lot of battle streamers to its flag. We will wage information warfare, but we will fight with infantry. And we will always surprise those critics, domestic and foreign, who predict our decline..." [...]

"With the war in Iraq, it's sort of overwhelming...Especially for a young person, it seems like we're entering a world where violence is endemic, so what can we do to be compassionate and not angry and retaliatory?" she asked....The Dalai Lama said "a little fight" is sometimes necessary, showing off fingernails that were his best weapon against his older brother as a child. "Everyone would be very kind to each other," he said. "If anybody wanted something, somebody would just give it to them right away ... and everyone would be happy."
There were no demonstrators when the Dalai Lama returned to the University of Washington for one of the final events of the five-day Seeds of Compassion conference in Seattle....

4/14/8 U.S. State Dept. & Germany Plan: "Roadmap for the Tibet Movement for the Coming Years"

Roadmap for the Tibet Movement for the Coming Years
http://www.politicsforumpoliticalworld.com/asia/12685-roadmap-tibet-move...
The original article can be found here:
www.german-foreign-policy.com

LHASA/BERLIN - Conference reports and the research of a Canadian journalist reveal that a German Foreign Ministry front organization is playing a decisive role in the preparations of the anti-Chinese Tibet campaign. According to this information, the campaign is being orchestrated from a Washington based headquarters. It had been assigned the task of organizing worldwide "protests" at a conference organized by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation (affiliated with the German Free Democratic Party - FDP) in May 2007. The plans were developed with the collaboration of the US State Department and the self-proclaimed Tibetan Government in Exile and call for high profile actions along the route of the Olympic Torch Relay and are supposed to reach a climax in August during the games in Beijing. The campaign began already last summer and is now profiting from the current uprising in the west of the People's Republic of China that is receiving prominent coverage in the German media. The uprising was initiated with murderous pogrom-like attacks by Tibetan gangs on non-Tibetan members of the population, including the Muslim Chinese minority. Numerous deaths of non-Tibetans provoked a reaction of the Chinese security forces.

4/14/08 US v China: Communist & Capitalist Again: Information Warfare

China, U.S. enemy #1 when socialist on the revolutionary road to classless communism, is enemy again. In the last 40 years since China, with US aid, restored capitalism too successfully despite Mao's leading the Cultural Revolution against US-backed "capitalist roaders' high in the CCP. The geopolitical strategic all-american-purpose- pretext information war framing its only capitalist rival as a 'threat' to US national security" -- is a deadly threat to the US post-WW2 global dictatorship of terror.

THE GLOBAL CHESSBOARD, U.S. DOMINANCE & INFORMATION WARFARE

China and America: The Tibet Human Rights PsyOp
4/13/08 By Michel Chossudovsky www.globalresearch.ca/index.php
The human rights issue has been made the centerfold of media disinformation...China's alleged human rights violations in relation to Tibet are highlighted...Western media has barely acknowledged the Fifth "anniversary" of Iraq's "Liberation" and the balance sheet of the US sponsored killings and atrocities perpetrated against an entire population, in the name of a "global war on terrorism"... are more than 1.2 million Iraqi civilian deaths, 3 million wounded. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) indicates a figure of 2.2 million Iraqi refugees who have fled their country and 2.4 million "internally displaced persons": "Iraq’s population at the time of the US invasion in March 2003 was roughly 27 million, and today it is approximately 23 million. Elementary arithmetic indicates that currently over half the population of Iraq are either refugees, in need of emergency aid, wounded, or dead." (Dahr Jamail, Global Research, December 2007)

The Geopolitical Chessboard

4/11/8 Risky Geopolitical Game: Washington Plays ‘Tibet Roulette’ with China, by F.William Engdahl

Risky Geopolitical Game: Washington Plays ‘Tibet Roulette’ with ChinaBy F. William Engdahl
Global Research, April 10, 2008
http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=8625

Washington has obviously decided on an ultra-high risk geopolitical game with Beijing’s by fanning the flames of violence in Tibet just at this sensitive time in their relations and on the run-up to the Beijing Olympics. It’s part of an escalating strategy of destabilization of China which has been initiated by the Bush Administration over the past months. It also includes the attempt to ignite an anti-China Saffron Revolution in the neighboring Myanmar region, bringing US-led NATO troops into Darfur where China’s oil companies are developing potentially huge oil reserves. It includes counter moves across mineral-rich Africa. And it includes strenuous efforts to turn India into a major new US forward base on the Asian sub-continent to be deployed against China, though evidence to date suggests the Indian government is being very cautious not to upset Chinese relations.

The current Tibet operation apparently got the green light in October last year when George Bush agreed to meet the Dalai Lama for the first time publicly in Washington. The President of the United States is not unaware of the high stakes of such an insult to Beijing. Bush deepened the affront to America’s largest trading partner, China, by agreeing to attend as the US Congress awarded the Dalai Lama the Congressional Gold Medal.

The immediate expressions of support for the crimson monks of Tibet from George Bush, Condi Rice, France’s Nicolas Sarkozy and Germany’s Angela Merkel most recently took on dimensions of the absurd. Ms Merkel announced she would boycott attending the August Beijing Summer Olympics as her protest at the Beijing treatment of the Tibetan monks. What her press secretary omitted is that she had not even planned to go in the first place.
