America & The Politics Of Genocide In Africa

On Tuesday,

the vast majority of African Americans cast their votes for a man whose hands are soaked in the blood of millions of Congolese.

Barack Obama,

like his predecessors George Bush and Bill Clinton,

has pulled the strings, paid the cash, and sent the weapons that Uganda and Rwanda have used

to cause the deaths of six million people in the Democratic Republic of Congo

since invading that country in 1996.

Various organs of the United Nations have repeatedly found America’s two top allies in Black Africa complicit in the Congo genocide,

and on every occasion,

the U.S. and Great Britain have protected the mass murderers.

And why not ?

The genocide in Congo is the deliberate result of American and British policy.

Uganda and Rwanda are merely henchmen,

who commit mass murder in return for a cut of Congo’s vast stores of mineral resources.

Western businesses are the ultimate beneficiaries.

“Go Well Go Shell” ? Go To Hell

http://www.wackybuttons.com/designcodes/110/1102305.jpg

The newly released Shell Sustainability Report for 2011 says

“Population growth and rising living standards are driving energy demand,

contributing to increased environmental stresses.

http://bristol.indymedia.org/attachments/dec2007/shell_hell_in_nigeria.gif

As the world becomes more crowded,

the stresses between the essentials of life

– water, food and energy –

will become more critical.

Energy production needs water,

and providing enough water and food to sustain people needs energy.

Climate change is likely to intensify the stresses.”

According to Shell’s CEO,

Peter Voser,

https://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/281/images/voser.jpg

“These are huge, integrated challenges and there is no time to waste if the world is to tackle them effectively.

Yet the relationship between government,

business and civil society

is struggling to work.

The Report reminds us:

“In late 2011 the International Energy Agency issued a stark warning that without a bold change of policy direction,

the world could lock itself into an insecure,

inefficient and high-carbon energy system

as early as 2017.

http://www.indymedia.org.uk/images/2006/11/355722.jpg

 

It called for governments to introduce stronger measures to drive investment in efficient and low-carbon technologies.

Failure to do this would lead to

“irreversible and potentially catastrophic climate change.”

according to the Agency.

Peter Voser believes Shell can help by producing more energy.

THAT”S IT, FOLKS! THAT’S THE SOLUTION -

EVER MORE ENERGY!

Almost every historian,

economist and political analyst

agrees with

Peter Voser

https://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/281/images/voser.jpg

that more affordable energy production has produced rising living standards,

accelerated population growth,

increasing demands for energy and resources,

irreversible damage to the environment and intensified stresses all round.

So what’s the solution?

MORE ENERGY!

Hello ??

Did we hear that correctly?

They all agree that more energy production has intensified the stresses.

So why will even more

and more

energy solve or reduce the stress problem?

I don’t get it!

If someone else does,

can they please explain this to us lesser mortals.

Of course more energy production is good for business!

No doubt about that.

And more energy production creates more demand for energy

so the market grows exponentially by itself.

What an amazing money-making,

business model.

It works like magic,

and it’s all perfectly legal !

Like feeding drugs to a potential addict,

the new convert must soon get more people hooked on drugs

so he can sell more drugs

to pay for his insatiable addiction,

and so addiction and drug trade spreads through the population.

That one is still illegal

but addiction to more and more energy is perfectly legal

even though it’s going to be not only potentially but really “catastrophic” for the whole world,

according to the experts.

I don’t get it !

Can someone please explain this ?

[ I'd like to know, too.

How The Arab League Has Become A Tool Of Western Imperialism

It’s an intrigue befitting the machinations of classical colonialism in past centuries,

http://img.ibtimes.com/www/data/images/full/2011/03/22/77282-the-arab-league.jpg

such as the Sykes-Picot carve-up of the Middle Eastern Levant territories,

or the betrayal of the Arabs after World War I,

or the theft of Mesopotamia’s oil by British capitalists.

Only this time,

it is Arabs who are helping the neocolonial powers

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2073/2496409613_08d918d1f8.jpg

to deceive and subjugate other Arabs.

Enter the Arab League.

Over the past year,

the 22-member organization has emerged as a useful deceptive cover for Western powers

as they seek to redraw the political contours of the Arab World,

and beyond,

for their own strategic interests.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/ww3map2.gif

The momentous popular upheavals that began in early 2011 across the Arab World

have in many ways been co-opted or manipulated by Western imperialist powers

to minimize democratic gains and to refashion the political map to their continuing advantage.

A feat of achievement considering that these same powers

have for decades

supported the repressive regimes

that have inflicted so much misery and suffering.

Busted : Monsanto Abusing Illegal Workers in ‘Slave-Like’ Conditions

http://earthfirstnews.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/monsanto.jpg

 

Monsanto’s disregard for human health is evidenced by their hazardous GMO crops and herbicides,

but a shocking new report has revealed the company’s illegal ‘slave-like’ working conditions.

Forcing slave workers to work the cornfields for 14 hours per day and buy their food (most likely GMO)

at highly-inflated prices from the company store,

Monsanto has been running these slave rings for an unknown number of years.

Exposing Monsanto’s Financial Interest In Government

Monsanto is not simply a company who sells genetically modified products to those seeking them.

This massive corporation is actually very much involved

with the passing and proposals of regulations concerning the very GM ingredients they are responsible for.

http://www.vanityfair.com/dam/politics/2008/05/poar03_monsanto0805.jpg

You may think those helping to pass the GMO bills truly believe

that genetically engineering the food supply is beneficial to public health,

but the scary truth is that many of said individuals couldn’t care less about humankind

or the future of the planet.

As far as many government regulators are concerned,

Monsanto can spread its wings far and wide

so as long as those in power are living large.

5 Reasons To Question “Peak Oil” Theory

“Peak Oil” is the theory that the world is running out of “fossil fuels”

whose depletion will turn society on its head.

However, there still exist dual theories on the origin of oil,

neither of which can yet be fully proven.

It is of great importance to weigh both theories and their implications.

Special interests, hidden agendas and policy are at stake

which could have dire consequences for governments, private interests and individuals

if decisions are made based on faulty intelligence.
