"The UN has become even more contaminated by Atlanticist projects to use it to legitimize and launch imperialist military campaigns to enforce a declining system of privilege and unjust global governance that Washington heads. The motivations behind the drafting and institutionalizing of R2P at the UN are aimed at helping to prevent this decline. This is why that either reform or an alternative to the United Nations is needed now more than ever."

And on Wednesday night, he was on."

Do you think the Annals of Internal Medicine should RETRACT the flawed study they just published that bashes organics? Should Stanford University retract it and admit their scientists are paid shills for corporate interests?

Ghosts of BP's past, present and future. We will NOT let the world forget. We will NOT allow BP to skate. Every action has a reaction, and every consequence a responsibility. How do you sleep at night BP? The answer would probably be "quite well"...
