"I went down on my knees and prayed to Almighty God for light and guidance
and one night late it came to me this way. We could not leave (the
Philippines) to themselves--they were unfit for self-government--and they
would soon have anarchy and misrule over there worse than Spain's was. There
was nothing left for us to do but take them all and educate the Filipinos,
and uplift and Christianize them.": President William McKinley

Our men . . . have killed to exterminate men, women, children, prisoners and
captives, active insurgents and suspected people from lads of 10 up.... Our
soldiers have pumped salt water into men to "make them talk," and have taken
prisoners people who held up their hands and peacefully surrendered, and an
hour later. . . stood them on a bridge and shot them down one by one, to
drop into the water below and float down, as examples to those who found
their bullet-loaded corpses.": Philadelphia Ledger newspaper in

American strategists have calculated the proportion of civilians killed in
this century's major wars. In the First World War 5 per cent of those killed
were civilians, in the Second World War 48 per cent, while in a Third World
War 90-95 per cent would be civilians: Colin Ward, Anarchy in Action

What a stupendous, what an incomprehensible machine is man! Who can endure
toil, famine, stripes, imprisonment & death itself in vindication of his own
liberty, and the next moment ... inflict on his fellow men a bondage, one

rebellion to oppose: Thomas Jefferson

American Exceptionalism
Torture Whitewash from The Dark Side
By Pepe Escobar
Without accepting full responsibility for torture - and illegal, pre-emptive
wars - and without accountability, there can be no catharsis in America.
Obama is enough of a smart operator to know that if his "going forward" is
perceived like "look the other way", this whole thing will come back to
haunt and even destroy his presidency. And if it walks and talks like a
whitewash, that's because it must be ... a whitewash.

From Bunker Hill to Baghdad
Pinter's Dispatch to Obama
By Mike Whitney
"The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious,
remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have
to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of
power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It's a
brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis...It's a
scintillating stratagem."

Obama Has Missed His Moment
By Chris Hedges
Barack Obama has squandered his presidency. He had a fleeting moment to
challenge the casino capitalism and financial recklessness of our economic

have provided a safety net for tens of millions of Americans faced with
dislocation and misery.

Some Might Call It Treason
By Philip Giraldi
Until the transcripts of Rep. Jane Harman's telephone conversations are made
public, if they ever are, her transgression can only be assessed secondhand.
It appears to have consisted of talking with someone who may be an Israeli
citizen regarding influencing the outcome of the ongoing trial of
ex-American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) officials Steve Rosen
and Keith Weissman.

Jane's Harman Us
By Becky Akers
Few sights are as delicious as a tyrant swinging high overhead, hoist by her
own petard. The one currently dangling aloft is Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA).
