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
The original article can be found here:

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.



China and America: The Tibet Human Rights PsyOp
4/13/08 By Michel Chossudovsky
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

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.

4/12/8 Carrying a Torch: U.S. Keeps Up Olympic Tradition Around the World


The Olympic Charter ... introduced after American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos gave the Black Power salute on the podium at the 1968 Games in Mexico City.... bans any kind of “demonstration or political, religious or racial propaganda” in any Olympic venue or area. This includes the opening and closing ceremonies, the medal podiums and the Athletes’ Village. But there are still many grey areas and concerns among human rights campaigners that athletes’ right to free speech will be curtailed to avoid embarrassing their Chinese hosts.

digest note: the Olympics are political, a showcase for some rabid, racist unsporting nationalism, led by the U.S. Politics also drives the protests and rules regarding protests: anti-imperialist-zionist politics or reactionary like the made-in-usa anti-China campaign. The official censorship rules are led by the U.S. "Grey areas" allow them latitude to dictate what is verbotten. NO GREY AREAS RE: ANTI-U.S. PROTESTS ... EVER.
— Tommie Smith and John Carlos, gold and bronze medalists in the 200 metres, gave the Black Power salute during the American National Anthem in Mexico, 1968, to demonstrate against racial discrimination in their home country. They were expelled from the Games
— The silver medallist in the 200 metres, Peter Norman of Australia, who was white, wore an “Olympic Project for Human Rights” badge in support of Smith and Carlos’s protest. When he died, in 2006, Smith and Carlos were his lead pallbearer

Remembering Paul Robeson, (1898-1976)
a Jazz & Justice Tribute by Dr. Jared Ball
Paul Robeson was the son of an escaped slave, who became an all-American athlete, and one of the first three black graduates of Columbia University Law School. After discovering that he would only be allowed to research the cases white lawyers presented, he began a career as an actor on stage and movies, a singer, and political activist. Robeson wrote and spoke more than a dozen languages fluently, and sang in ten more. While earning six and seven figures a year in the Depression as an artist, he began openly raising money for political causes, and by the late 1940s he was a full time fighter for the rights of black and all oppressed people. Robeson was severely punished for his activism, but remained defiant and unrepentant to the end of his days.
Dr. Jared Ball, professor of Communications at Morgan State University also hosts Jazz and Justice every Monday on WPFW Radio in Washington DC. Black Agenda Report is happy to make available here the audio of his Jazz and Justice tribute to Paul Robeson, a stunning example of what we at BAR call "the Other Black Radio", broadcast on .March 31, 2008.

British Warn US commander is beating the drum for Iran strikes
By Damien McElroy
Foreign Affairs Correspondent
04/04/08 "The Telegraph" -- -- British officials gave warning yesterday that America's commander in Iraq will declare that Iran is waging war against the US-backed Baghdad government. A strong statement from General David Petraeus about Iran's intervention in Iraq could set the stage for a US attack on Iranian military facilities, according to a Whitehall assessment. In closely watched testimony in Washington next week, Gen Petraeus will state that the Iranian threat has risen as Tehran has supplied and directed attacks by militia fighters against the Iraqi state and its US allies.
The outbreak of Iraq's worst violence in 18 months last week with fighting in Basra and the daily bombardment of the Green Zone diplomatic enclave, demonstrated that although the Sunni Muslim insurgency is dramatically diminished, Shia forces remain in a strong position to destabilise the country.
"Petraeus is going to go very hard on Iran as the source of attacks on the American effort in Iraq," a British official said. "Iran is waging a war in Iraq. The idea that America can't fight a war on two fronts is wrong, there can be airstrikes and other moves," he said. "Petraeus has put emphasis on America having to fight the battle on behalf of Iraq. In his report he can frame it in terms of our soldiers killed and diplomats dead in attacks on the Green Zone."...

The March 20, 2008 US Declaration of War on Iran
By John McGlynn
As of Thursday, March 20 the US is at war with Iran.
...So who made it official?
A unit within the US Treasury Department, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), which issued a March 20 advisory to the world's financial institutions under the title: "Guidance to Financial Institutions on the Continuing Money Laundering Threat Involving Illicit Iranian Activity."
FinCEN, though part of the chain of command, is better known to bankers and lawyers than to students of US foreign policy. Nevertheless, when the history of this newly declared war is someday written (assuming the war is allowed to proceed) FinCEN's role will be as important as that played by US Central Command (Centcom) in directing the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq....

What it really means is that the US, again through FinCEN, has declared two acts of war: one against Iran's banks and one against any financial institution anywhere in the world that tries to do business with an Iranian bank...

3/19/08 Obama's Message: Whose Cheering?


Obama's eloquent speech was just what his masters need: a Black man down with the folks, connected to Black nationalism 'transcending' a radical vision to unite all under the white supremacist american flag's expanding empire. Movingly he spoke of the effects of national oppression and its ideological engine, racism ... using historical facts to lie about the truth, the source of the horrors, to ensnare people especially Blacks and 'progressive' whites in the deadly trap of capitalist electoral politics, to misdirect them from the only real solution, systemic, revolutionary change.

Was it an accident his grievances and promises omitted particulars of the 'hope' he sells for U.S. imperialism, its genocidal genesis and history up to this moment in Iraq, Palestine, Africa, Central and Latin America? Did he forget the fascist oppression, unjust imprisonment, degradation, deprivation, criminalization and police murder called 'justifiable homicide, the state terror behind the criminal justice system, the systematic elimination of the BPP and others who dared fight for real change? The fascist witchhunt and terror against peoples of color and immigrants, especially Arabs and Muslims?The fascist Patriot Act and its endless spawns enmeshing us in total surveillance, 'intelligence' databases and state propaganda called 'news'? No, Obama did not forget. His message was a calculated effort to divide potential believers from those who dare to know they have nothing left to lose and dare to resist, dare to give their lives rather than crawl on their knees before the oppressor... the 'suspected terrorists' who stand in the way of amerika's dream.

Obama betrays everything the Black liberation and the working class struggles have fought for and stand for ... with the winning charm of the snake oil salesman.
