Waiting for the endgame in Libya

August 22, 2011

NATO’S ‘Qana Massacre’ at Majer, Libya

August 16, 2011

Every Muslim and Christian Palestinian refugee in Lebanon and every Lebanese citizen whose family members or loved ones were slaughtered during Israel’s two massacres at Qana, Lebanon, is reminded today of the indescribable loss suffered Sunday by their Libyan sisters and brothers at Majer, Libya.

Ethnic cleansing of Black Libyans

July 25, 2011

The “rebels” in Misrata in Libya have driven out the entire Black population of the city, according to a chilling story in the Wall Street Journal … The “rebels” now eye the city of Tawergha, 25 miles away, and vow to cleanse it of all Black people once they seize the city. Isn’t this the perfect definition of the term “genocide”?

A defining moment for Africa: North Atlantic terrorists will be defeated in Libya

The argument in Libya has been won by the Al Fateh revolution. There is now a glaring truth confronting the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO) – Muammar Qaddafi has handed out over 1 million kalashnikovs to the Libyan people.

Cynthia McKinney: Citizen action to stop the bombing of Africa

July 15, 2011

NATO and hyperbolic press accounts have introduced a kind of race hatred that the Libyan people have been trying hard to erase. Approximately 50 percent of Libya looks like me. Innocent, darker skinned Libyans have been targeted, tortured, harassed and killed.

Open Letter from an African to American President Barack Obama on the war in Libya

July 8, 2011

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this letter to appeal to you to take heed of the message that the House of Representatives sent out to Americans on June 24 by rejecting the text authorizing U.S. military intervention in Libya and ending the on-going attacks against the Libyan people with the most extravagant excuses, like the attacks are there to protect them.

Rwanda is no excuse for the U.S. to intervene in Sudan

July 2, 2011

Advocates of intervention in Southern Sudan argue that the U.S. can’t be bystanders to what could become another Rwanda and must become instead “upstanders” preventing genocide. Was the U.S. a bystander to the Rwanda Genocide? Professors Peter Erlinder and Edward Herman both say no.

African Union threatens withdrawal from United Nations

June 30, 2011

Neo-neo-colonialism?

June 29, 2011

European and American exploiters, using U.N. resolutions – but ignoring others – and NATO as fig leaves, rain death and desolation in the name of “protecting civilians.” That these same forces were just months ago in bed with the very same dictators that they today denounce, shows us that something else is at work.

Barack Obama: Africa’s friend or enemy?

June 28, 2011

President Obama, who many expected to bring peace and civility, has become a warmonger. His predecessor, George Bush, created so much animosity in the world … So naturally, the world expected Obama to be different. Sadly, this hasn’t been the case.

Who speaks for you?

The politically conscious gather for Cynthia McKinney – but where are all the youth?

June 22, 2011

The media fog of war

June 21, 2011

NATO’s decision to intervene in Libya on humanitarian grounds has become an alarming and revealing assessment of America’s understanding of war. The way the “established” media portrayed the Libyan conflict, and its subsequent reception, illustrates our society’s failure to recognize how the power dynamics of plutocratic governance shape our realities.

Facing the bombs of America and NATO in the Libya Jamahiriya

June 20, 2011

The people of the world need to know that the corporate media is fabricating a massif of lies concerning the on-the-ground facts of the illegal war against the people of Libya by American and NATO forces. News reports represent Qaddafi as a hated and unpopular leader. Yet he has struggled harder than any Western leader to champion the rights of the poor and abolish racism against Black people. I wish the world could see the universal support of the young people for their government.
