All Ignorant on the Amercan Front

Kurai Tsuki, a Lebanese American student,

self explanitory >.> Nearly three years have passed since the terrorist attacks of September 11 on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, and there still seems to be no substantial attempt on the part of the mainstream people or media to explain or discover the true causes of these attacks. The media and politicians around the world project the idea that the 911 attacks were committed purely out of Islamic extremism, out of envy and hatred for America’s many, “freedoms.” But in fact if the freedoms that the United States government offers it’s citizens are minimal compared to most of the other world democracies; such as the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Japan, this fact alone implies that there must be some motivation on the part of Arab terrorists wishing to do harm to the United States. The true causes of terrorism against America are in fact the interventions, bombings and funding of violent regimes on the part of the American government which has taken place now for over fifty years. Here in this article I will list most of these actions on the part of the United states.

Update: The U.S. 'War of Territory'

Henk Ruyssenaars - Ex Africa correspondent,

Ethiopia's CIA-backed troops will be home from Somalia within weeks they say. Leaving Somalia, with a few criminal warlords as 'government'. Some of the CIA-paid warlords are responsible for the U.S. defeat in 1993, dragging US Marine's corpses through the streets of Mogadishu. Now UN troops make the news raping children in Sudan. They rape more than that.

People's Revolt in Lebanon - [The Nation - from the January 8, 2007 issue]

FPF-fwd. Mohammed Bazzi,

HR comment: The Nation is a source of information we normally never quote. This is on the other hand a good piece of 'alibi journalism' for the editors of The Nation. Which will not help: we have a memory. It concerns the protest in Beirut, something which should happen as soon as is possible in all US junta colonies.

Justin Raimondo + Henk Ruyssenaars,

The failed UN/US intervention of 1993 led directly to the triumph of the warlords, who plundered, raped, and murdered their way through the streets of Mogadishu, the Somalian capital, and reduced the country to Mad Max territory. The same deadly chaos - made in the US - now again foments more hate.

The problem with all those 'sources' is governments paying for the information being spread. As legendary US journalist I.F. Stone said 4 decades ago: "All governments lie." Based on my 4 decades of experience with many governments and their 'advisers' one can only confirm that Izzy Stone was totally right. They all lie and people die.
