7/7/9 Who Says?

digest: Smiley face & silver tongue lead the desperate U.S. juggernaut: massive campaign to destabilize Iran, and now China as U.S. divide - to - conquer - your - enemies 'engages' Russia, the other major capitalist rival threatening U.S. global dominance. Creating and manipulating 'ethnic violence' is U.S. standard tactic, evident from Iraq, Palestine and Iran to Africa

XINJIANG'S GEOSTRATEGIC IMPORTANCE:
Situated in the northwest of China, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region was known in China as the Western Territory in ancient times. Its 1.66 million square kilometers represent about one-sixth of the total territory of the country, making it the largest of China's regions and provinces. Xinjiang also has the longest boundary among China's provinces and autonomous regions and shares 5,600 kilometers of frontier with Mongolia in the northeast, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in the west, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India in the southwest.
Xinjiang has large deposits of minerals and oil. Oil and gas extraction industry in Aksu and Karamay is booming, with the West–East Gas Pipeline connecting to Shanghai. The oil and petrochemical sector account for 60% of Xinjiang's local economy... (culled from several sites incl. wikipedia)

GEOSTRATEGIC CONTEXT
In his 1997 book “The Grand Chessboard ”, former national security advisor under the Carter administration and informal Obama advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski highlights the importance of Eurasia for global US primacy. Drawing heavily on Mackinder’s theory he states:

The Hypocrisy of America: This Fourth of July is yours, not mine.
Frederick Douglass: July 4, 1852
In 1852, invited to give a speech in Rochester NY, Douglass delivered the following indictment of & Hard Power Wars a nation celebrating freedom and independence, while keeping slaves.

Fellow citizens, pardon me, and allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I or those I represent to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? And am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits, and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us?

Would to God, both for your sakes and ours, that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions. Then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful. For who is there so cold that a nation's sympathy could not warm him? Who so obdurate and dead to the claims of gratitude, that would not thankfully acknowledge such priceless benefits? Who so stolid and selfish that would not give his voice to swell the hallelujahs of a nation's jubilee, when the chains of servitude had been torn from his limbs? I am not that man. In a case like that, the dumb might eloquently speak, and the "lame man leap as an hart."

U.S. grants support Iranian dissidents
By Ken Dilanian, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is moving forward with plans to fund groups that support Iranian dissidents, records and interviews show, continuing a program that became controversial when it was expanded by President Bush. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), which reports to the secretary of state, has for the last year been soliciting applications for $20 million in grants to "promote democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in Iran," according to documents on the agency's website. The final deadline for grant applications is June 30.

U.S. PLANS FOR 'CIVIL UNREST"
War College warns military must prepare "in extremis" for "civil violence inside U.S."
IMF warns of economic riots
http://phoenix.bizjournals.com/phoenix/stories/2008/12/15/daily34.html
A new report by the U.S. Army War College talks about the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being used should the economic crisis lead to civil unrest, such as protests against businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks. “Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” said the War College report. The study says economic collapse, terrorism and loss of legal order are among possible domestic shocks that might require military action within the U.S. U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., and U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., both said U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson brought up a worst-case scenario as he pushed for the Wall Street bailout in September. Paulson, former Goldman Sachs CEO, said that might even require a declaration of martial law....

6/23 "Who's Diddling Democracy?" 79 Million Iranians Voices Silenced; Lovers of U.S. Democracy Devotion Includes Lotsa Lefties

digest comment:

The U.S. & friends, using Iranian elections, in the name of genuine struggle by Iran's working and oppressed people against the system, are fueling the vast, transparent propaganda war and protests led by 'human rights' / color revolution forces democratically demanding "death to the dictator", "death to Ahmadinejad", to intensify decades-long regime change plans critical to its hegemonic world agenda.

U.S. Obama / 'soft power' self-righteous left liberals aid the u.s. juggernaut by being more passionate supporters of Iranian 'democracy' / 'human rights' than they are opponents of u.s slaughter from 'Af-Pak, Iraq, Palestine, Peru, Africa and beyond. Unable to 'explain' why the war-mongering u.s.a. is also passionately devoted to Iranian -- and other globally strategic 'freedom' games -- they disingenuously delete history & irrefutable evidence to attack documented exposure of U.S. intervention as 'support for Ahmadinejad and 'arrogant american' indifference to the tiny twittering -in-Tehran pro-u.s. sections of Iranian people of the US/NGO operation ---- no "voice of he people" from 98% of Iran's 80 million people.

6/19/9 Iran: Hard & Soft Power Destabilization aka 'liberation'; U.S.:"Have We Already Lost Iran?"

digest commentary
:
The propaganda and destabilizing provocation against Iran must be seen in the context of the past bipartisan geostrategic U.S. agenda and current global terror war for global dominance. Since overthrowing Mossadegh in 1953, Iran has been central to the critical 'mideast' region, subjected to non-stop U.S. intervention, from funding war against Iraq war to CIA and soft power 'strategic non-violence human rights /democracy' destabilization. Obama's characteristic hypocrisy about not intervening in Iran's internal affairs is belied by "evidence below.

Opposing U.S. imperialism's interventionist machinations does NOT mean supporting Iran's capitalist theocracy - as u.s. apologists pretend - it means resisting world enemy #1 attempts to further its deadly agenda.

Supporting the Iranian people means exposing our mutual main enemy and its secret deals with Iran's and other oppressive leaders, unequivocally supporting all genuine anti-imperialist/zionist resistance and revolutionary struggle of peoples and nations everywhere. It's part of forging political consciousness and organization to create a future based on the suppressed and distorted potential of collaborative, constructive human creativity. Finally dumping this anachronistic system based on fascistic degradation and destruction for the power and profits of a relative handful into history's garbage dump is our common responsibility and pleasure.

Below are samples voices of both so-called left and right imperialist apologists masked in 'liberation' / 'humanitarian' propaganda, and opposing voices from different political positions, united in exposing u.s. aggression and absurd big lies of a 'progressive' u.s. capitalism supporting 'the people' - anywhere, ever.

When and How Was the 'Jewish People' Invented?, Professor Shlomo Sand

Book refuting Jewish taboo on Israel’s bestseller list
Jonathan Cook, Foreign Correspondent
http://www.thenational.ae/article/20081006/FOREIGN/279853798

Idea of a Jewish people invented, says historian: When and How Was the Jewish People Invented?

No one is more surprised than Shlomo Sand that his latest academic work has spent 19 weeks on Israel’s bestseller list – and that success has come to the history professor despite his book challenging Israel’s biggest taboo.
Dr. Sand argues that the idea of a Jewish nation – whose need for a safe haven was originally used to justify the founding of the state of Israel – is a myth invented little more than a century ago.
An expert on European history at Tel Aviv University, Dr. Sand drew on extensive historical and archaeological research to support not only this claim but several more – all equally controversial.
In addition, he argues that the Jews were never exiled from the Holy Land, that most of today’s Jews have no historical connection to the land called Israel and that the only political solution to the country’s conflict with the Palestinians is to abolish the Jewish state.
The success of When and How Was the Jewish People Invented? looks likely to be repeated around the world. A French edition, launched last month, is selling so fast that it has already had three print runs. Translations are under way into a dozen languages, including Arabic and English. But he predicted a rough ride from the pro-Israel lobby when the book is launched by his English publisher, Verso, in the United States next year.

6/9/9 Oratory and Aggression to Advance 'National Security' Agenda

U.S. Weighs Intercepting North Korean Shipment
By DAVID E. SANGER
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/08/world/asia/08korea.html?_r=1&th&emc=th

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration signaled Sunday that it was seeking a way to interdict, possibly with China’s help, North Korean sea and air shipments suspected of carrying weapons or nuclear technology. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met Friday in Washington with Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan of South Korea.
The administration also said it was examining whether there was a legal basis to reverse former President George W. Bush’s decision last year to remove the North from a list of states that sponsor terrorism.
The reference to interdictions — preferably at ports or airfields in countries like China, but possibly involving riskier confrontations on the high seas — was made by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. She was the highest-ranking official to talk publicly about such a potentially provocative step as a response to North Korea’s second nuclear test, conducted two weeks ago. While Mrs. Clinton did not specifically mention assistance from China, other administration officials have been pressing Beijing to take such action under Chinese law....
Mr. Obama, aides say, has decided that he will not offer North Korea new incentives to dismantle the nuclear complex at Yongbyon that the North previously promised to abandon.

Obama Weighs Plan Allowing 9/11 Suspects to Plead Guilty
U.S. Could Let Guantánamo Detainees Plead Guilty Without Trials. The provision could permit military prosecutors to avoid airing the details of brutal interrogation techniques.
The proposal would ease what has come to be recognized as the government’s difficult task of prosecuting men who have confessed to terrorism but whose cases present challenges. Much of the evidence against the men accused in the Sept. 11 case, as well as against other detainees, is believed to have come from confessions they gave during intense interrogations at secret C.I.A. prisons. In any proceeding, the reliability of those statements would be challenged, making trials difficult and drawing new political pressure over detainee treatment... It could also allow the five detainees charged with the Sept. 11 attacks to achieve their stated goal of pleading guilty to gain what they have called martyrdom [after years of torture]....

There is no tweeting about Tiananmen Square, or anything else, in China this week. In a crackdown apparently timed to the 20th anniversary Thursday of the crushing of pro-democracy demonstrations, the Chinese government has pulled the plug on the social-networking site Twitter and dozens of other Internet sites and blogs according to the Hong Kong-based Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy.... Jeremy Goldkorn, an expert in online media in China, said he thinks the government was particularly upset that people were trading information about how to read a controversial new memoir. It was written by the late Zhao Ziyang, the former secretary-general of the Communist Party who was fired in 1989 for his opposition to a military crackdown on the demonstrations.... http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2009292950_tiananmen030.h...
