Anti-war Movement Needed NOW!

If there's a peace movement out there, it's time to get up and howl. If there is not, it's time to get working on one. There isn't much time.

Absolutely the worst thing, in my opinion, that can happen in the POTUS election currently taking up way too much space, volume, and megabytes, is if Shillary were to win in a landslide.

Some child victims we care about, some we don't

Some child victims we care about, some we don't. An injury to a child caused by someone we don't like, we beat our breasts and tear our hair out. An injury to a child caused by someone we do like, well, shit happens.

Top left, you'll undoubtedly recognize little Omran Daqneesh, injured in a "Russian or Syrian" airstrike, and nobody ever figured out, or cared, what party dropped the bomb. Little Omran was photographed by the "White Helmets," a group of PR campaigners embedded in Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate. The "White Helmets" are dearly loved in the "West," are seriously funded by the "West," and have amazing contacts in the Western LameStream media. If you've managed NOT to see a photo of Omran, you'd be quite unusual. Omran, despite being alive, which makes him luckier than a lot of Syrian kids, is a victim we care about. A "worthy" victim.

Syrian "Revolution": Campists unite!

We're duds!

Those of us who support the elected Syrian government over the foreign-supported and supplied proxy war, the fighters of which are a wahhabist, head-chopping rabble, have it all wrong. We're not anti-imperialists, we're "campists."

Lies, lies, more lies...Milošević exonerated

This is an absolute stunner. Slobodan Milošević has been completely exonerated of being the “mastermind” behind the war crimes in Bosnia. Here's where to find it.

In March this year, the "International Tribunal ... issued its judgement in the case of Radovan Karadžić, the head of the Republika Srpska (RS).

Achcar: Left confused about Syria. Me: Oh, really?

Is the "left" confused about Syria? Are we overlooking the revolutionary possibilities in the Syrian "uprising"? According to Gilbert Achcar, we are. He's just published a piece in Jacobin magazine...

August Massacre at Douma, Syria: More "Rebel" BS?

By now, the "rebels" in Syria, and their enablers, such as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (sic) and Human Rights Watch (NATO, inc) have established for themselves such a record of lies and BS that I simply don't believe anything they say. The massacre at al-Houla; the "chemical attack" in East Ghouta, Damascus; the massacre at Deraa; and many others...

Here comes the Canada Day/Independence Day extravaganza

Every year at this time we get to take a day off, hang with friends and family, and think about how lucky we are to be so darned free in these great countries of ours. This year we’ve got a special reason to celebrate, as the United States has finally joined Canada in legalizing same-sex marriage. But every year, it seems, we’ve got a little less reason to do so.

Charleston: We DO Love our (White) Killers, don't we?

Dylann thought this, Dylann thought that, Dylann's "manifesto." Dylann opening Christmas presents. Jesus Murphy.

Why do we obsess over our white killers so? We don't obsess like this over the Black ones, do we?

Haroon Siddiqui, chicken hawk?

I was shocked and horrified today when I opened my Toronto Star and turned to what I like to read first thing Sunday morning—Haroon Siddiqui's column.

Usually I count on Siddiqui to comment on some situation or controversy and bring some wisdom to bear on it: information you might not have been exposed to, other ways of thinking about it, other people's views and how they fit, etc.

Twenty-two years later, we still believe the Tiananmen myth

Twenty-two years after Tiananmen, and the fairy tale is still told with gusto.

On Wednesday, June 1st, 2011 I attended an event called "From Tiananmen to Tahrir Square," (TtoT) where five speakers attempted to draw parallels, distinctions, and lessons from the events of May-June, 1989 in China and the revolt in Egypt earlier this year.

Most of us, including that night's presenters, believe the Tiananmen myth, not the facts. That limits us. You can't really draw useful conclusions from what didn't happen.
