Obama's first 100 days : the madman did well
In his first 100 days, Obama has excused torture,opposed habeas corpus,and demanded more secret government. He has kept Bush's gulag intact and at least 17,000 prisoners beyond the reach of justice. On April 24 his lawyers won an appeal that ruled that Guantanamo prisoners were not 'persons' and therefore had no right not to be tortured. His national intelligence director, Adm. Dennis Blair, says he believes torture works. One of his senior officials in Latin America is accused of covering up the torture of an American nun in Guatemela ; another is a Pinochet apologist. As Daniel Elsberg has pointed out, America experienced a military coup under Bush, whose Secretary of "defense", Robert Gates, along with the same warmaking officials, have been retained by Obama.

All over the world, America's assault on innocent people, directly or by agents, has been stepped up. Read more

Steph's blog : Iran sends a powerful message to the West

Anyone who didn't think Ahmadinejad wouldn't win by a landslide didn't have their finger on the pulse of Iranian politics....Mousavi was never going to win because his appeal was too narrow. His electoral base was the rich, middle class, neoliberal elite in North Tehran and the ex-pats, while Ahmadinejad's support was widespread....he has won enormous kudos throughout the world for his challenging of American hegemony, for the unfairness of the UN Security Council and of his criticizing of the Israeli ethnic cleansing and occupation of Palestine....America and Israel have been threatening war with Iran since 2005.


Prior to the invasion of Iraq, Cheney had 'intel' fixed around the desired result : manufacturing evidence of weapons of mass destruction via using fertilizer as a threat of being 'weaponized' - yellowcake.

Then Iran was and is for years believed to be made a threat by Russia - virtually a next door neighbour and a constant lookout for that sort of event.; yet who warns against an attack on Iran. The Cuban Missile Crisis was a calculated reaction to deployment of nuclear missiles in Turkey. More lately floating nuclear reactors are proposed for the Arctic. That attention - getter is ignored by the selective attention of the media just as much as Russia's threats not to attacks Iran : yet Russia has actual - not imaginary - WMD.

Into that background comes this story

Son of Shah says protesters defeat could lead to nuclear war

Rather gives 'what comes round, goes round' a whole new meaning, doesn't it ?

Soros, the CIA, Mossad and the new media destabilization of IranLink

Opposition leader Mir-Houssein Mousavi declares victory hours before the polls close, insuring any results to the contrary will be called into question. Western media goes into overdrive, seeing who can offer the most hyperbolic denunciation fo the vote...
Enter Destabilization 1.01 This version of the destabilization program is less messy, offering plausible deniability for the western powers who are overthrowing a foreign government.
Destabilization 1.2 involves seemingly disinterested, democracy promoting NGOs with feelgood names like the Open Society Institute, Freedom House and The National Endowment for Democracy. They fund, train, support and mobilize opposition movements in countries which have been targeted for destabilization, often around elections and usually organized around an identifiable color.
Now we arrive at Destabilization 2.0, really not much different than a slight tweak of Destabilization 1.2. The only thing different now is that Twitter, acebook, YouTube and other social media are employed to amplify the effect of ( and the impression of ) internal protests.
