    World Focus: Many U.S. My Lai-Type Massacres in Vietnam
    Tuesday, January 29 @ 17:38:04 UTC
    VictimCovered Up by Pentagon, Reporter Charges

    By Sherwood Ross
    January 29, 2013


    Massacres of civilians by U.S. forces in Vietnam were not rare aberrations but everyday occurrences, an authoritative new book on the subject charges.

    Worse, the massacres were a result of deliberate Pentagon policies handed down from the very top, often to build false “body count” figures that could lead an officer to promotion. The inflated body counts reported civilian dead as combatant Viet Cong when they were actually women, children and old men.

    The massacre of more than 500 civilians at My Lai on March 15, 1968, by the Americal division’s Charlie company, 1st battalion, 20th infantry, has long been portrayed as a solitary episode ordered by Lieutenant William Calley. He was the only one of 28 officers involved who was convicted and although sentenced to life imprisonment was paroled after just 40 months.

    War and Terror: Red Cross finds detainee abuse 'tantamount to torture' in Guantánamo
    Wednesday, December 01 @ 00:01:37 UTC
    VictimBy Neil A. Lewis, New York Times

    WASHINGTON - The International Committee of the Red Cross has charged in confidential reports to the United States government that the American military has intentionally used psychological and sometimes physical coercion "tantamount to torture" on prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

    The finding that the handling of prisoners detained and interrogated at Guantánamo amounted to torture came after a visit by a Red Cross inspection team that spent most of last June in Guantánamo.

    The team of humanitarian workers, which included experienced medical personnel, also asserted that some doctors and other medical workers at Guantánamo were participating in planning for interrogations, in what the report called "a flagrant violation of medical ethics."

    World Focus: The Burning Legacy of Ronald Reagan
    Friday, June 11 @ 14:35:11 UTC
    VictimFuneral Games

    By CHRIS FLOYD

    Some cynics say that Heaven's newest sunbeam, Ronald Reagan, was called "The Great Communicator" because he delivered his innumerable lies in words of one syllable. But this is just a typically vicious liberal canard.

    For Reagan truly was a great communicator, though not with words - or with facts, which he once called "stupid things." No, his genius lay in the manipulation of symbols to convey powerful messages that could no longer be voiced openly in polite society - messages of hate, envy, fear and violence.

    Invasion of Iraq: CNN to Al Jazeera: Why Report Civilian Deaths?
    Thursday, April 15 @ 20:51:12 UTC
    Victimwww.fair.org

    As the casualties mount in the besieged Iraqi city of Fallujah, Qatar-based Al Jazeera has been one of the only news networks broadcasting from the inside, relaying images of destruction and civilian victims-- including women and children. But when CNN anchor Daryn Kagan interviewed the network's editor-in-chief, Ahmed Al-Sheik, on Monday (4/12/04)-- a rare opportunity to get independent information about events in Fallujah-- she used the occasion to badger Al-Sheik about whether the civilian deaths were really "the story" in Fallujah.

    War and Terror: Is Killing Part of Pentagon Press Policy?
    Thursday, April 10 @ 22:40:37 UTC
    Victimwww.fair.org

    The Pentagon has held up its practice of "embedding" journalists with military units as proof of a new media-friendly policy. On April 8, however, U.S. military forces launched what appeared to be deliberate attacks on independent journalists covering the war, killing three and injuring four others.

    In one incident, a U.S. tank fired an explosive shell at the Palestine Hotel, where most non-embedded international reporters in Baghdad are based. Two journalists, Taras Protsyuk of the British news agency Reuters and Jose Cousa of the Spanish network Telecino, were killed; three other journalists were injured. The tank, which was parked nearby, appeared to carefully select its target, according to journalists in the hotel, raising and aiming its gun turret some two minutes before firing a single shell.

    War and Terror: Tons of 'Shock' but Little 'Awe'
    Tuesday, April 01 @ 12:43:23 UTC
    Victimby Ben Roberts

    Interested in seeing the 'shock' of Bush and his cohorts? Read The Washington Post issue for this past Saturday, March 29, 2003. Find the section 'War In Iraq,' There right before your eyes is the photo of an Iraqi child, possibly no more than five years old. We are used to seeing children animated with activity and boundless spirit. Not here. This child is lifeless, lying on a cold slab in an Iraqi morgue. He was killed by the US Army missile strike on the Iraqi marketplace. In America we value our children highly, and strive to provide them with a full and happy life. Are Iraqi parents damned to see their children's spirits extinguished and their bodies and minds amputated before they have had a chance to even begin living, while ours enjoy a long and comfortable life? 'Katie Couric I remember your tear stained face on that fateful morning of September 11, and your words, "Why do they hate us?" Be sure to take a look at that picture, and maybe you will have your answer.' This is 'shock.' No 'awe' here, just a definite guarantee that we would be even more resented and despised for what we do.

    War and Terror: Of Lies, Liberation and American Self-Delusion
    Thursday, March 27 @ 19:16:19 UTC
    Victimby Tim Wise

    Iraqis must think the American definition of liberation a strange one.

    First, we destroy all of the key government buildings that we can find in a search for Saddam Hussein.

    Then we relentlessly attack the Iraqi military, which of course counts among its troops, members of tens of thousands of Iraqi families.

    Then we launch a cruise missile that destroys an urban market in Baghdad, claiming that it was intended to hit a battery of rocket launchers placed in the area by the Hussein regime.

    War and Terror: If we care about Elizabeth Smart, why not the children of Iraq?
    Friday, March 14 @ 19:46:21 UTC
    VictimBy Kurt Nimmo

    Yesterday America received good news.

    Elizabeth Smart, 15, was discovered alive, unharmed, and in good health. She was apparently abducted nine months ago by a mentally deranged homeless preacher, Brian David Mitchell. Today the newspapers all across America ran photographs of a smiling and rosy-cheeked Elizabeth, her father Ed, and younger sister Mary Katherine. Today America celebrates the return of this innocent child to her loving parents.

    Meanwhile, elsewhere in the world, people were not so happy with the fate of their children. In the days before Utah police found Elizabeth Smart, Anglo-American aircraft bombed Basra, Iraq, a not uncommon occurrence. Six children in Al Jumohria, a poor section of town, were killed while they slept.

    War and Terror: Paying through the nose to kill Iraqi children
    Friday, February 28 @ 03:19:36 UTC
    VictimBy Kurt Nimmo

    According to some estimates, Bush's Iraq attack will cost each and every American $320. Now, for the Waltons and Gates and Buffetts, this isn't a whole lot of scratch, but for most of us it's a decent chunk of change. For instance, I need a new computer for writing these articles and $320 would be a nice start. Instead, that money will go toward killing innocent children, pregnant women, grandmas, grandpas, and a whole lot of other people in Iraq. The money is siphoned off before my employer cuts me a check. Most of it goes right to Donald Rumsfeld.

    War and Terror: Why People Hate America and Americans
    Monday, November 11 @ 14:35:39 UTC
    VictimDr. Kwame Nantambu

    One of the most significant questions to emerge after the very tragic terrorist attacks on September 11 is : Why do people hate America and Americans?

    In a nationally televised address to a joint session of Congress, President George Bush answered as follows:
    "They hate what they see right here in this chamber: A democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other."
    At the outset, it must be stated quite categorically that contrary to President Bush's assertion, one of the reasons that people hate America and Americans is not because they are jealous of America's freedoms and/or way of life.

    Israel-Palestine: Of Occupation and Apartheid, Do I Divest?
    Saturday, October 19 @ 08:27:19 UTC
    Victim by Desmond Tutu, Oct. 17, 2002

    The end of apartheid stands as one of the crowning accomplishments of the past century, but we would not have succeeded without the help of international pressure-- in particular the divestment movement of the 1980s. Over the past six months, a similar movement has taken shape, this time aiming at an end to the Israeli occupation.

    Divestment from apartheid South Africa was fought by ordinary people at the grassroots. Faith-based leaders informed their followers, union members pressured their companies' stockholders and consumers questioned their store owners. Students played an especially important role by compelling universities to change their portfolios. Eventually, institutions pulled the financial plug, and the South African government thought twice about its policies.

    Media horrors from Palestine to Bali

    While the death tolls were unmatched numerically the horrors are equally terrifying.

    In fact both acts this weekend tantamount to actions of terrorist. Perhaps the aggrieved would NOW agree that terrorism is terrorism abhorrent miserable and unpardonable.

    Israel-Palestine: The Father of All Terror: Occupation
    Tuesday, September 24 @ 17:10:03 UTC
    Victimby Saifedean Ammous, Wednesday September 11, 2002

    A closer look at the horribleness of life under occupation and curfews

    While the world is turning all its attention towards the anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, all of humanity seems to be so determined and adamant to fight terrorism and eradicate it from this world. People are even following the traces of terrorism to the highest mountains of Afghanistan and the tightest straits of Tora Bora. All this is well; however, before going through all this trouble to fight terrorism, people should turn their attentions into other forms of terrorism, more evident, public, and insulting to humanity, namely, occupation.
