Truth on Arafat's death and Sarkozy's corruption

Not surprising, news that had been reported by the alternative news media in the past were mainly ignored by the mainstream media.

But now the truth is finally revealed in the latest headline news that Arafat was poisoned, Swiss institute finds polonium in Arafat's effects and that the former French president was politically corrupt, Sarkozy on the radar of French prosecutors .

Funny, how truth always wins at the end.

Nobel Peace Prize for War Makers and Activists

The Nobel Peace Prize used to be highly respected for its recipients who honored the true meaning of "peace" by promoting peace and ways to lessen the role of military power in international affairs.

Nowadays, it's nothing more than a joke due to the cast of war makers and activists who had been chosen by the Nobel Peace Prize committee for their own political agenda. One can't help feeling that the members of the committee were either bought or supported the "new world order" (U.S.-led NATO allegiance).

There is a short list of categories established in 1901 for Nobel prizes - physics, chemistry, literature, peace, and physiology & medicine and economic sciences which was added in 1969. Most Nobel prizes seem to be in line with the founder's intent. One prize obviously does not: Nobel Peace Prize.

Look at the cast of wrongfully chosen recipients in the last decade:

2003 - Shirin Ebadi from Iran was awarded for her efforts on the struggle of the rights of women and children. (Any activist against the Iranian government gets a nod from the the West.)

2004 - Wangari Maathai from Kenya was basically an environmentalist who promoted planting trees worldwide. Her political activities were related to the Green Belt Movement. (How could an environmentalist be considered a peace activist?)

2006 - Muhammad Yunus from India was awarded for creating economic and social development among the poor. (Why didn't he share the Nobel Economic Prize with Edmund S. Phelps in 2006?)

2007 - Al Gore (former U.S. Vice President) and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) were jointly awarded for their efforts to spread knowledge "about man-made climate change and to lay the foundations for the measures (carbon footprint) that are needed to conteract such change." (How can climate change be related to promoting peace?)

2008 - Martii Ahtisaari (former President of Finland) was awarded for his efforts to resolve international conflicts, namely in Namibia, Indonesia, Kosovo and Iraq. He worked as a United Nations diplomat and mediator for years. He was also a strong advocate for Finland to join NATO. (He was basically a UN cleanup man working for the "new world order.")

2009 - Barack Obama (U.S. President) was awarded for "his efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." Right. He was the one who escalated US military operations in Afghanistan, who led the illegal invasion of Libya and gave Sarkozy of France the reins to finish the take-down of Gaddafi and who trespassed into Pakistan to conduct extrajudicial killing of the supposedly Obama bin Laden. (How could anyone mistaken a war monger for a peace activist?)

2010 - Liu Xiaobo from China was awarded for "his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China." He is a political prisoner known for his outspoken criticism of the Chinese government. (Again, any activist against the Chinese government gets a nod from the West.)

2011 - Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (Liberia), Leymah Gbowee (Liberia), and Tawakel Karman (Yemen) were jointly awarded for "their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's fights to full participation in peace-building work.".

Two of the three women seem to be political activists. Leymah Gbowee, Liberian peace activist, was responsible for leading a women's peace movement that brought an end to the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003. Tawakel Karman, a press freedom Yemeni activist, was partly responsible for the Yemeni uprising in 2011.

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia, seems to be promoting war rather than peace. She established a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) with the objective to "promote national peace, security, unity and reconciliation" by investigating more than 20 years of civil conflict in her country. Ironically, TRC report in June 2009 listed 50 names of people, including Sirleaf that "should be barred from holding public offices"... for "being associated with former warring factions." In addition, Sirleaf offered Liberia to be the headquarter of AFRICOM (U.S. Military of Africa) - the only African leader to do so.

In conclusion, Fredrik Heffermehl, the Norwegian researcher, is absolutely correct in accusing the Nobel Peace Prize committee for choosing war makers and activists, rather than those who actually promote peace in the world.

Ron Paul with world's point of view

Almost all Republicans are corrupt, greedy, and immoral. Worse still, they are ethnocentric - supporting domination of the world whether in politics, economics or just plain military might. They believe that only American point of view matters while ignoring, demeaning and destroying the rest of the world.

Ron Paul is one exception.

He is a man with principles, integrity and true grit as he often stands alone against the rest of the evil clan of Republican clones in Washington. Any fool can follow like a lemming but only a true hero can stand out as a real leader of the people. Ron Paul is that leader.

As a citizen of the world, "he tries to imagine how the world looks to people other than Americans." It's time for those narrow-minded Americans to see things from the world's point of view. They need to understand that Americans are just a SMALL PART of humanity; to understand the HUMAN ANGUISH and SUFFERINGS of the nations they've destroyed; and to understand that they must SHARE our planet with other civilizations and cultures in the world.

It's egregious and absolutely wrong to bring "Americanism" to the world. To put it simply: the world is NOT "made in USA." And Ron Paul understands that perfectly!

Relationship: U.S. provokes Iran

No matter how objective you may think you are on the relationship between Iran and the U.S., the reports on the events over the years between the two countries actually reveal that the U.S. certainly has been stirring up mayhem in Iran with political chicanery and covert maneuvers.

1. In 1953, the CIA helped to reinstate the U.S. puppet, Shah, back to power in Iran. The U.S. has NO RIGHT to dictate who it wants as a leader in other countries. It's quite understandable why Khomeini triumphed in an Islamic revolution to restore power in Iran for Iranians.

2. In 1986, U.S. President Ronald Reagan used Iran in secret arms deals to raise money for his illegal backing of Contra guerrillas in Nicaragua. Meanwhile, the U.S. was backing Iraq's Saddam Hussein in a war against Iran.

3. In 2003, U.S. President George W. Bush pushed for the U.S.-led illegal invasion of Iraq. Then, the U.S. accused Iran for staging attacks on U.S. forces. Why would Iran attack the U.S. forces after the U.S. had helped to remove Iran's enemy, Saddam Hussein?

Note: In January 2002 before the invasion of Iraq, Bush branded Iran part of an "axis of evil" as one of the countries for Bush to invade.

4. In November 2011, the U.S./Israel now accuse Iran for developing an atomic bomb design, as they did in 2008 UN sanctions. The accusers were proved dead wrong in a report - U.S. National Intelligence Estimate in 2007 - which clearly stated that Iran "put nuclear military plans on hold in 2003."

Considering that Iran shot down a U.S. spy drone in July and again on Sunday, December 4, 2011, who is provoking whom?

Considering all the facts above on how the U.S. had consistently accused Iran of this or that, why aren't there more consistent mainstream reports showing the U.S. as the worst warmonger in the world?

NATO Attack: Pakistan finally wakes up

Pakistan is in uproar over the "unacceptable" U.S.-led NATO attack on a Pakistani military post, killing 24 Army personnel.

Looking at a series of events, the U.S- led NATO attack on Pakistan recently was certainly not "a mistake" but a "tit for tat" retaliation.

It's not surprising that NATO deliberately attacked a Pakistani post after the relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has soured for more than half a year. In May, the U.S. violated Pakistan's sovereignty by committing a covert operation in killing supposedly Osama Bin Laden. Then, Pakistan imprisoned a CIA contractor. Without evidence, the U.S. accused Pakistan on backing a militant attack on the U.S. embassy in Kabul. Moreover, the contention over Shamsi Air Base in Pakistan used by U.S. forces for drone strikes in Afghanistan and other parts of the region has deepen the rift between the U.S. and Pakistan.

It's obvious that the U.S. IGNORES any leader's plea to stop the drone attacks in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. In fact, the U.S. is doing everything to protect its illegal, barbaric defense toy against humanity.

It's about time Pakistan stood up to the U.S. and should not play along with the U.S. illusory "war on terror." In response to the attack, Pakistan did the right thing - shut down NATO supply routes into Afghanistan and ordered the U.S. to vacate the drone base in 15 days.

And it's about time for any Muslim nation to know that the U.S. has no real friends, just allies that are being used as pawns.

How Congressmen Enrich Themselves

We all know that the U.S. congress is not serving the public from the laws they passed to SUPPRESS individual rights, to ALIENATE the U.S. from the rest of the world in support of Israel's paranoid phantasm of being eliminated by surrounding neighbors, and to support ongoing ILLEGAL wars for corporate interests in the Middle East.

What we obviously see is that the members of the Congress do serve one thing - MONEY.

How could a congressman become very wealthy with just a paying salary of $174,000 a year?

Most of them are bought by corporations, especially defense contractors and pharmaceutical companies, as well as lobbyists for Israel.

In addition, there's a way to enrich themselves in stocks. The laws against stock market insider trading don't apply to the members of the Congress!!!

Let's try to understand this one. The Congress passed the laws AGAINST insider trading for anyone living in the U.S. But, those same laws DON'T apply to members of the Congress?!

This article reveals that "Congress and their aides have regular access to powerful political intelligence, and many have made well-timed stock market trades in the very industries they regulate."

So principles, ethics, justice go right out the door. There you have it - a corrupt congress that definitely DOES NOT serve and represent the people.

One more example of the dysfunctional American democracy.
