1/19/13 Mali: Mind-boggling Deja Vu: 2008-2012 Articles Merged with 2013 Articles

NB: previous year propaganda that email subscribers can see dated in purple won't stand out as clearly here, so eyeball dates closely!

The US Middle East North Africa [MENA) operation begun under GWB regime, expanded with obama administration 'secret wars' that fully merged soft & hard power, into what propaganda ''strategic non-violence experts" call necessary "smart power"... which is backfiring on US, thanks to heroic resistance, but destroying vast new parts of the world.
The MENA war reveals the limitless depths of US destruction and deceit to salvage its world domination - demonstrating again, 'if you aren't with US you're with the terrorists"
It's no news that the US global imperialist terror war rests on control of information & communications. What was news, in this corner anyway, is how this info.war includes chronology readjustment as well as content management: Below you see how previous year MENA 'news' reports (dates in purple) are seamlessly melded into 2013 articles - unintentionally exposing the breadth & depth of the US war for and in Africa.
And how consistently the melded accounts deliberately confuse and conflate the Tuareg, the main US target - (MNLA's fierce, protracted, national liberation struggle established an independent state) - with its always dependable 'al qaeda islamists'.

Obama: "Contrast Al-Qa’ida’s Intent to Destroy with Our Constructive Vision"

The diversity and complexity of the African continent offer the United States opportunities and challenges. As African states grow their economies and strengthen their democratic institutions and governance, America will continue to embrace effective partnerships....

1/13/13 Mali in US War for African Continent

This issue shows how the US war for Africa, intensified under the Obama regime, has been executed in myriad ways and lies called 'news' in Mali specifically and other African nations.
It includes 3 general categories that overlap in realtime:
*US major media 'public diplomacy'; *USAID/Soros 'civil society' in Africa; * chronology links

North African nation of Mali
In 1960 the Mali Federation became the nation of Mali
Mali's location is a lynchpin in US African/MiddleEast (MENA) wars: it borders Algeria, Mauritania, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Senegal and the Inner Niger Delta is located in central Mali in the semi-arid Sahelian zone, just south of the Sahara Desert.....with important natural resources, gold, uranium, bauxites, iron, manganese, tin, copper and northern Mali has 'recently been found' rich in oil, suggesting a US attempt to engineer an 'independent' North & South Mali - as with newly created South Sudan - imposing another geographic restructuring since Mali was Western Sudan until 1960, and/or another devastating IMF 'development' restructuring.
Mali and this region is critical in US need to defeat its major capitalist rival, China, to salvage its rapidly dissipating global supremacy.

The US in the Niger Delta is a major, very related, story ... very brief detour then back to Mali

1/1/13 Fabulous Fractals & the Future? Carl Sagan on the "Pale Blue Dot"

Fractals - The Colors Of Infinity (1 of 6 series)
Magnificent and inspiring, fractals can be 'read' for the future in opposite ways: evidence of changeless circularity; or evidence of motion and change. Matter is endlessly divisible and changing according to the scientific 'law of contradiction, nothing is predetermined, permanently circular. Motion and change are based on the dynamic unity and struggle of opposites'. The emergence and resolution of contradictions is the basis of all existence, in nature, society and human thought. We are capable of consciously 'grasping' and acting on ideas reflecting external reality to change seeming powerlessness over reality and the future. In an overly-simple nutshell, Marxist dialectical materialism in theory and practice is a revolutionary weapon. Also a counterrevolutionary weapon used under bogus pretexts by oppressors & opponents of liberation to distort, revile and attack what most threatens their predatory, and doomed, domination.

Introduction to Contribution To The Critique Of Hegel's Philosophy Of Right, Karl Marx, 1843-44
The profane existence of error is discredited after its heavenly oratio pro aris et focis has been disproved. Man, who looked for a superhuman being in the fantastic reality of heaven and found nothing there but the reflection of himself, will no longer be disposed to find but the semblance of himself, only an inhuman being, where he seeks and must seek his true reality.

EDITORIAL http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/29/opinion/rape-in-india.html
The brutal gang rape of a young woman in New Delhi this month has cast a cold light on how badly India treats its women.India must work on changing a culture in which women are routinely devalued... a rising economic power and the world’s largest democracy, India can never reach its full potential if half its population lives in fear of unspeakable violence.

The U.S. Army will start training Kenyan troops as part of a major expansion of US military capabilities in Africa. AP reports Pentagon said 1,200 troops from the U.S. Army’s 2nd Brigade, known as the Dagger Brigade, will be deployed to as many as 35 African countries in the next two months. The Washington Times reported Dec. 23 the move would be an effort to respond quickly to sudden challenges in hot spots such as Libya.

US unveils new drive for Africa

...The renewed focus on Africa comes as China increasingly funnels investment toward the continent, seeking to bolster its diplomatic footprint partly as a way of slaking its growing economy’s thirst for new energy sources. China is bringing “incredibly needed” capital to African economies, and could play a role in bringing lasting peace to Sudan, the official said. Bilateral trade between China and Africa reached over $120 billion in 2011, from less than $20 billion a decade earlier.

12/19/12 Some "Soul Searching" on 'gun Violence'

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, producing dictatorship without tears... producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it...distracted from desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods..."

Obama asks "are we doing enough to keep our children safe?"
Obama said in the coming weeks, he would use "whatever power this office holds" to engage with law enforcement, mental health professionals, parents and educators in an effort to prevent more tragedies like Newtown." Can say that we're truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?

Lanza wanted to join the Marines
12/20/12 http://www.chron.com/newtownshooting/article/Lanza-wanted-to-join-the-Ma...
NEWTOWN, Conn. — Adam Lanza aspired to be a Marine, one of "the few, the proud." Failing that, he planned to join another branch of the military...he told his mother Nancy Lanza, his biggest cheerleader, and what she relayed to one of her closest friends, Ellen Adriani of Sandy Hook. At first, Nancy Lanza supported her youngest son's dream... that the military would give him purpose, a career path and structure to his life. But the more she thought about it, the more she saw a downside. "It became overwhelmingly clear to her that it [military service] wasn't right for him," Adriani said. "She squashed" the notion of Adam joining the Marines or any branch of the armed services by reminding him "that he didn't like to be touched," said Adriani, and that if he were injured "doctors and medics would have to handle him to treat him."...The Adam Lanza who went on a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last Friday was outfitted for war... body armor, black clothing, a Bushmaster rifle... a 9mm Glock originally used by the Austrian military -- and hundreds of rounds of ammunition...

The USS Eisenhower Strike Group transited the Suez Canal from the Persian Gulf Saturday, Dec. 1, sailing up to the Syrian coast Tuesday in a heavy storm, with 8 fighter bomber squadrons of Air Wing Seven on its decks and 8,000 sailors, airmen and Marines.The USS Eisenhower group joins the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group which carries 2,500 Marines.  
Facing Syria now are 10,000 US fighting men, 70 fighter-bombers and at least 17 warships, including the three Iwo Jima amphibious craft, a guided missile cruiser and 10 destroyers and frigates. Four of these vessels are armed with Aegis missile interceptors.This mighty US armada brings immense pressure to bear on the beleaguered Assad regime after it survied an almost two-year buffeting by an armed uprising. Its presence indicates that the United States now stands ready for direct military intervention in the Syrian conflict ...

11/27/12 Behind the fiery massacre in Bangladesh

Thousands of factories comprise the garment industry, mainly indirectly owned and or managed by US and European corporations
'emergency exits' were barred shut from the outside, NOT missing, as in other slave-labor industry operations:
At least 112 killed as fire races through garment factory outside of Bangladesh’s capital
AP http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/official-100-bodies-rec...
DHAKA, Bangladesh — Fire raced through a garment factory that supplies major retailers in the West, killing at least 112 people, many of whom were trapped by the flames because the eight-story building lacked emergency exits...other people were injured after they jumped eight stories from the building to escape, died at hospitals. Local media reported at least 124 people killed. Many were burned beyond recognition...relatives of the workers frantically looked for their loved ones...Army soldiers and border guards were sent to help police keep order as thousands of onlookers and anxious relatives of the factory workers gathered...
The blaze...at a factory operated by Tazreen Fashions Ltd., a subsidiary of the Tuba Group, makes products for Wal-Mart and other companies in the U.S. and Europe... Tazreen was given a “high risk” safety rating after a May 16, 2011 audit by a Wal-Mart “ethical sourcing” assessor according to a document posted on the Tuba Group website...Neither Tazreen’s owner nor Tuba Group officials could be reached for comment. The Tuba Group is a major Bangladeshi garment exporter whose website says clients also include Carrefour and IKEA.
Bangladesh has some 4,000 garment factories, many without proper safety measures. The country annually earns over $20 billion from garment exports, mainly to the U.S. and Europe.
