Ten Companies Profiting Most from War

   WARNING: This text contains disturbing images!

Global sales of arms and military services by the 100 largest defense contractors increased in 2010 to $411.1 billion, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. The increase reflects a decade-long trend of growing military spending. Since 2002, total arms sales among the 100 largest arms manufacturers have increased 60%.

The institute recently published its annual report on the leading arms producing companies in the world — SIPRI Top 100. The report identifies the largest companies in the sector and provides each company’s arms sales as a percentage of its total sales. Based on the report, 24/7 Wall St. identified the 10 companies with the highest revenue from arms sales. These companies alone account for $230 billion — over half of all arms sales that year.

While many industries continued to suffer in 2010 as a result of the financial crisis, leaders in the arms and military services were largely unaffected. According to SIPRI arms industry expert Dr. Susan Jackson, when sales dropped, it was not because of the financial crisis. Instead, Dr. Jackson notes that loss in sales was due to “the withdrawal of foreign troops from Iraq and the subsequent expected decrease in related equipment sales.”

The composition of the 10 largest manufacturers reflects the state of modern warfare. More and more, battles are fought remotely through air surveillance and strikes rather than on-the-ground combat. As a consequence, seven of the 10 largest companies are among the leading aerospace companies. Surveillance and battlefield communications also are increasingly important in modern warfare. All of the companies in the top 10 have significant electronics divisions.

Of the 100 companies on the list, 44 are based in the U.S., including Boeing, Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin. The American companies account for more than 60% of arms sales revenue of the 100 manufacturers. Seven of SIPRI’s top 10 are American, one is British, one is Italian and one is a multinational EU conglomerate. The U.S. federal government has contract deals with all seven American companies. These seven are among the top 10 U.S. federal contractors by amount procured, according to the government’s Federal Procurement Data System.

24/7 Wall St.’s analysis of the SIPRI 100 includes revenue for arms sales for 2007, 2009 and 2010, as well as percentage of company revenue from arms sales, employees, industry and applicable military division. 24/7 Wall St. also included history of each company and notable weapons systems manufactured.

These are the 10 companies profiting most from war.

    3. Boeing (NYSE: BA)

> Arms sales 2010: $31.36 billion
> Total sales 2010: $64.31 billion
> Arms sales as pct. of total sales: 49%
> Total profit: $3.31 billion
> Total employment: 160,500
> Sector: Aircraft, Electronics, Missiles, Space

As recently as 2007, Boeing was the largest arms producer in the world. By 2008, it had fallen behind Lockheed Martin and U.K.-based BAE Systems. The aerospace and defense company remains one of the largest in the world, however. Boeing is the second-largest aircraft producer in the world by deliveries, behind only Airbus. It is also the second-largest U.S. government contractor, procuring just under $19.5 billion in contracts in 2010. Major products produced by the company include the KC-767, an aerial refueling tanker, and the F-15 fighter jet. Boeing made less in arms sales in 2010 than it did in 2009, although arms sales made up a larger amount of total sales — two percentage points, to be exact — in 2010 compared to 2009. Even in 2010, however, only 49% of revenue came from arms sales, which is among the lowest rates among companies on this list.

     2. BAE Systems

> Arms sales 2010: $32.88 billion
> Total sales 2010: $34.61 billion
> Arms sales as pct. of total sales: 95%
> Total profit: $1.67 billion
> Total employment: 98,200
> Sector: Aircraft, Artillery, Electronics, Missiles, Military vehicles, Small arms/ammunition, Ships

BAE Systems is an aerospace and defense contractor based in the UK. The company has a major U.S. subsidiary, BAE Systems, Inc., which by itself would be the seventh-largest weapons manufacturer in the world. The British company was formed in 1999 through the merger of Marconi Electronics (which was at the time a subsidiary of GE) and British Aerospace. BAE produces weapons systems in nearly every major military category, including aircraft, defense electronics, vehicles, naval vessels and small arms. Among the company’s notable contributions are the M2/M3 Bradley fighting vehicle, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the Type 45 destroyer and the Astute-class nuclear submarine. In 2010, 95% of its revenue came from arms sales, $32.88 billion in all.

     1. Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT)

> Arms sales 2010: $35.73 billion
> Total sales 2010: $45.80 billion
> Arms sales as pct. of total sales: 78%
> Total profit: $2.93 billion
> Total employment: 132,000
> Sector: Aircraft, Electronics, Missiles, Space

Lockheed Martin is the largest arms-producing and military services company in the world, with nearly $3 billion more in arms sales than second place BAE Systems. Although military sales make up the majority of its revenue, it is significantly less than many other major arms-producers, including BAE’s 95% share. In addition to being the world’s largest arms-seller, Lockheed is also the largest federal contractor in the U.S. by a large margin. In 2010, the company’s government contracts totaled nearly $36 billion. Lockheed produces a number of major products, including the Trident missile and the F-16 and F-22 fighter jets. Despite being the largest military service company on this list, Lockheed is only the fourth-largest company by overall sales among the companies featured on this list. In 2007, the Lockheed was the third-largest arms producer.

There is no doubt that this trend will unfortunately increase in the future. The same process and increase profits and foresee major manufacturers and resellers of crude oil and petroleum products. It is reasonable to expect that these two industries continue "fruitful" and "successful" cooperation on the discontent of the now "liberated" people and the overall population that buys expensive petroleum products.

Threat of Permanent War and Nuclear Dominance

The leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the gently named but dangerous behemoth dominated by the United States - and history’s largest global military cohort - plan to meet in Chicago on May 20 and 21.

The tiny fraternity of concentrated wealth and power that calls itself the Group of Eight (G8) was to have met in Chicago in mid-May as well, overlapping with NATO. Fearing massive protests, the G8 cancelled, retreating to Camp David, Maryland, chased out of town by a coalition of dissidents, activists and agitators.

Isolated and inaccessible, Camp David is where the “leaders” of the planet’s eight wealthiest countries belong - sequestered and remote, barricaded and cut off in every imaginable way. The Camp David move illuminates the elite’s isolation from the people they pretend to represent.

By the same token, NATO - a military alliance of 28 countries, - is the only major intergovernmental body without a basic information disclosure policy. It's a closed cabal with an active PR front and zero engagement with the public it claims to protect.

From their separate berths, NATO and the G-8's heads of state, intelligence personnel, foreign ministers and generals, cabinet members and secret operatives, advisors and bureaucrats - the 1 percent of the 1 percent - will conspire to extend and defend their obscene wealth, to exploit the remaining fossil fuels, natural resources, human labor, and the living planet to the last drop, and to dominate the people of the global majority.

   A People's Primer on NATO

On NATO’s official web site, a white dove flutters across an elegant page, but soon enough, it moves to images of helicopters and fighter planes menacing the world under the facade of peace.

“NATO forces” are referenced constantly, and yet the reality of NATO is obscure and enigmatic.

US military spending alone accounts for nearly half of the world’s military spending; add NATO countries, and the figure jumps to three quarters.Under cover of NATO, 9,000 British troops were deployed to fight a US war in Afghanistan, offering a fig leaf presented as “coalition forces” to US military aggression.

Purportedly set up as a defensive organization, in 1999 NATO’s mission statement was rewritten to allow for offensive action across the Eurasian landmass. Since 1999, NATO has waged war in four countries on three continents, none of which are near the North Atlantic region: in Southeast Europe's Yugoslavia, North Africa's Libya and Central and South Asia's Afghanistan and Iraq.

NATO retains hundreds of nuclear weapons in military facilities across Europe, an end-run around the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which forbids the transfer of nuclear weapons to non-nuclear countries. England is required by the NPT to work toward nuclear disarmament; instead, its nuclear weapons system has been hidden under NATO since the 1960s, a set-up that means its nuclear weapons could be used against any country attacking, or threatening to attack, any of NATO's member states.

Between 150 and 240 US nuclear weapons are sited in five European countries. These are B61 gravity bombs—tactical nuclear weapons—which are more flexible and easier to use in a battlefield and have a variable explosive power exceeding, at their upper limits, the power of the Hiroshima atomic bomb by more than a factor of ten. NATO’s pre-emptive “first strike” doctrine is a menacing presence across the planet; its Active Layered Theatre Ballistic Missile Defense (ALTBMD) is the latest successor to Reagan’s Star Wars plan. Russia recently signed on and will be on the US side of the space shield, erected against some other states - perhaps Iran, perhaps China - promoted to the status of “enemy."

   Municipal Militarism Protects Global Militarism

A 1984-style national security dragnet is set to descend on Chicago in an attempt to lock the city down during the NATO summit. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has made it clear that he will happily act as the host of NATO - and that the 99 percent are not welcome. Emanuel is concocting a culture of fear, suggesting that it is the growing human resistance to NATO that represents danger, outside agitators, violence and invasion.

Universities and schools are being urged to close early in May; communities of color are told that NATO's work is not their concern; merchants are preparing for assault from the dissenting masses. But NATO, and their G8 friends in hiding, are the real masters of war; it is they who are the greatest purveyors of violence on this earth.

It is unsurprising, then, that Emanuel has funding to further arm and mobilize the police and militarize the city. The Mayorl has announced plans to contain and suppress demonstrators. He has pushed through legislation that restricts and criminalizes free speech and assembly and requires costly insurance for public demonstrations. He is issuing a steady stream of pronouncements about a fabricated Chicago, which he says is under siege from ominous and dangerous outside forces.

The mayor, not the popular resistance, is creating conditions - once again - for a police riot in Chicago against people exercising their right to peaceful dissent. Emanuel can still change course, and he should; so far, he has chosen to frame the coming convergence of protesters and the powerful solely in military and security terms.

   Join the Coalition/Come to Chicago

Chicago is big enough for all—it is after all a nuclear-free and cease-fire city, cradle of the Haymarket martyrs and the 8-hour day, labor and peace actions, vast civil rights and immigration rights manifestations, home of Ida B. Wells Barnett, Jane Addams, Richard Wright, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Studs Terkel. Chicago is a vast public space with historic parks, monuments, neighborhoods and streets for popular mobilzations—Chicago belongs to all of us. We underline the right—the moral duty—to dissent and demonstrate, to resist and to be heard, to participatory (not billionaire paid-for) democracy.

The festival of NATO counter-summits, protests, and family-friendly permitted marches planned for May are the next chapter. Organizers and supporters will use humor and music, art and play, civil disobedience and imagination to voice their rejection of permanent imperial wars and the many forms of violence that arise from the same paradigm: discrimination and hate based on race, gender and ethnicity; epic income disparity; mass incarceration; inadequate resources for education, health care and opportunities for meaningful work.

Music, dance, teach-ins and peoples’ tribunals will overflow the parks and theatres. The protests are in the spirit of the Arab Spring, Occupy and the Madison labor struggle, drawing equal inspiration from the work of many others: the Pelican Bay hunger strikers, teachers and nurses, the undocumented DREAMers, returning veterans against the wars, women insisting on reproductive dignity, people resisting foreclosures/take-back-the-landers,, those working for LGBTQ equality and more.

People from everywhere will bring their spirits and their creativity, pitch their tents and stake their claims. Join us!

Friday, May 18: National Nurses United Rally, Daley Center Plaza.

Sunday, May 20 (morning): Iraq Veterans Against the War Rally and March.

Sunday, May 20 (afternoon): Coalition Against NATO-G8 Poverty Agenda (CANG8) Rally and March, Downtown Chicago

Milkman subjected to extreme torture!

NaturalNews exclusive report, please credit with link. NaturalNews can now report that 65-year-old senior citizen James Stewart, a raw milk farmer with no criminal history, was nearly tortured to death in the LA County jail this past week. He survived a "week of torturous Hell" at the hands of LA County jail keepers who subjected him to starvation, sleep deprivation, hypothermia, loss of blood circulation to extremities, verbal intimidation, involuntary medical testing and even subjected him to over 30 hours of raw biological sewage filth containing dangerous pathogens.

This is from a county that has targeted and terrorized James Stewart for the supposed crime of selling fresh milk containing "dangerous pathogens." That's right - the only "crime" James has ever committed is being the milk man and distributing milk that is openly and honestly kept fresh and raw instead of pasteurized. So as part of his punishment of advocating raw cow's milk, he was tortured with raw human sewage at the LA County jail.

                          James Stewart, the unfortunate milkman who passed Golgotha ​​of selling raw milk.

  "I thought I was gonna die in there..."

In this exclusive interview, you can hear James Stewart describe, in his own words, the shocking details of prisoner abuse right here in America. Among the highlights from his interview with Mike Adams:

• How James was subjected to severe food deprivation.

• How he was interrogated by deputies and accused of being a "sovereign," then branded with a red arm band (Nazi-style) to falsely indicate that he was a danger to the general population.

• How James was shackled in long chains wrapped around his waist multiple times, then had his hands cuffed behind his back which was bound to the heavy waist chain to restrict his movement. His handcuffs were so tight he thought his wrists would break.

• James was then handcuffed to a cold bench, restricting his movement to just six inches, then left on the bench for 4-5 hours.

• James was then forcibly subjected to various medical tests, including forced chest X-rays even while he was handcuffed.

• He was placed in a cold cell wearing only a T-shirt and pants, where he soon began to suffer from hypothermia and found himself violently shivering just to stay alive.

• How he was made to suffer through total sleep deprivation all night long as other prisoners were screaming and banging on the walls.

• His cell was then flooded with raw human sewage, which flowed into his jail cell 2-3 inches deep, covering his shoes and shirt. LA County jail guards then ordered James to clean up all the raw sewage in his cell by handing him a small hand-held squeegee and demanding that he squeegee out all the raw sewage himself (which he reluctantly did).

• He was then forced to stay in the putrid raw sewage cell for over 30 hours, fighting off nausea and living in bacteriological filth that threatened his health.

• All along, the LA County prison guards gloated over their treatment of prisoners while laughing and joking about their power to subject prisoners to such abuse. This behavior openly mimics that of Gitmo guards who took pictures gloating over their torture and murder of prisoners of war.

• During this entire process, James was not allowed a single phone call nor any visit from an attorney. His right to speak to an attorney was repeatedly denied.

• At no point was James notified of what he was being charged with. He was never presented with an arrest warrant nor were any charges explained to him.

• James was mysteriously "lost" in the system and LA County officials claimed they did not know where he was. This was apparently a deliberate attempt to subject an individual to drawn-out torture without legal representation and make sure no one could locate them to check on their health or arrest status.

"Worse than torture... They're actually torturing you mentally and physically to break you down..."

These are the actual words of James Stewart that you will hear in this interview:

• "I thought I was gonna die in there."

• "It was worse than torture. They're actually torturing you mentally and physically to break you down."

• "I wrote the 'torture' on a piece of toilet paper to try to tell everybody what I had gone through, because I was worried they were going to mentally break me and put me in a psych ward."

• "What I experienced in downtown LA was brutality."

• "It's trauma. And they create this thing where you're not even sure what's coming next. What has this country come to? I don't sleep well at night right now, and I don't think anyone would if they had been what I've been through."

• "I'm shocked that this is America. Because it seems like you're in some third world country, in a gulag, like in the movie Midnight Express, where you're absolutely just tortured. That was the experience I had. Your mind goes, how can this be? This is America?"

  NaturalNews calls on Amnesty International, ACLU to intervene

What we are witnessing here is a gross violation of civil rights and human rights, not to mention fundamental due process. The treatment unleashed upon James was not merely against the law in California, it was also a violation of federal law and a violation of the Geneva Convention and its ban on torturing prisoners of war.

"What happened to Stewart is horrendous," health freedom attorney Jonathan Emord told NaturalNews. He's the author of the new book "Restore the Republic" which lays out a plan to overthrow tyranny and restore a government that works on behalf of the people instead of declaring the People to be the enemy.

The bail amount set for James ($1 million) and the torture to which he was subjected clearly indicate that James Stewart is a political prisoner of the State of California, which has decided to spend millions of dollars in taxpayer money to target and incarcerate a senior citizen farmer. (By comparison, bail for alleged child rapist and sex pimp Jerry Sandusky, former Penn State sports coach, was only set at $100,000 and was unsecured!) 

NaturalNews calls upon Amnesty International and the American Civil Liberties Union to intervene in this extraordinary violation of basic human rights. For the record, James Stewart has no criminal record and is a permaculture farmer and fresh food advocate. His "crime" consists entirely of arranging for the distribution of raw milk to customers who actually line up to access this nourishing food (people love it!).

NaturalNews has no financial ties to James Stewart nor Rawesome Foods and has been the leading source of free press information covering this story. The mainstream media so far refuses to cover this story, most likely out of financial loyalty to the conventional (processed) dairy industry which stands to lose tens of millions of dollars if raw milk is allowed to be openly and legally sold.

Assistance efforts for James Stewart and Sharon Palmer, the other person arrested in this case, can be emailed to:

Imperialism and its agents

It seems these days the water is so pro-imperialist campaigns at the same time that it is almost impossible to set aside adequate time for each.
In the midst of economic disaster, there is hyper-militarism, which is literally "out of control." In America the unemployed pile, half of the nation now officially living in poverty, many of them survive only with the help of "food stamp" - but at the same time, American militarism is so aggressive that I literally no longer knows where it first "intervened. "
The focus now shifted and Uganda, called for a new intervention against the "bogeymen" named Joseph Kony, leader of an obscure paramilitary group LRA, kind in Africa - the effects of neo-colonialism - there are hundreds.

First of all, it is important to note that the U.S. military is already entered in Uganda, Obama has sent several hundred troops already this winter, but - as he then said - he wants more troops in the country, thousands of new soldiers.
But - as always, for easy operation - he needs a broad consensus of the U.S. population. Then the united media, along with social networks that are, let us once again, all products are in fact U.S. corporations (Facebook, Twitter, GPLUS etc).

   Imperialism out of control

Is it necessary to attack Syria? How to transfer weapons across the border? How and when to attack Iran? Whether to include in the new Lebanese civil war that is looming? Does the drone shoot more residents of Pakistan or Somalia? How much extra lead the army in Australia? South Korea? Japan? Philippines?
It should really give credit to Pentagon employees, keep track of all this at the same time ... must have been tedious and difficult job.

However, hegemony is never enough - just as the U.S. transnational corporations need to go into every corner of this world, so the U.S. military must take in each country.
In the area of Uganda has recently discovered large reserves of oil, the smell of the black gold was immediately turned on all the sensors in the highest structures of American government.

Kony 2012 poster that reads "The only thing about which we can all agree" on the poster are the elephant and donkey, a reference to the Republican and Democratic Party of the USA

Equivocate on these facts would be to play the 'fool' - every sensible citizen of the world realizes that the American military machine onslaught with all sources of oil and strategic locations that can provide the adequate extraction of these resources. So are thoroughly ruined countries like Afghanistan and Iraq. The latest victim of imperialism was Libya, the country is bombed for 6 months, but - because of propaganda reasons - we are very rarely seen as dropping bombs on the cities and some towns, such as city Sirta, were thrown straight back into the Stone Age.

Let us pause for a moment - if you actually did, if the U.S. became a military empire that is ready to kill, enslave, and light tread of sovereign states and their peoples around the world - then let's at least so declared.
In the present grotesque, twisted world where the U.S. hysterically defending their economic survival of the capitalist model - the "bearable" to listen to on the plan without tension.
John McCain and George W. Bush, no matter how militaristic, at least publicly acknowledged the purpose of these wars - they both noted that oil is a major cause of the invasion of Iraq.
The harsh reality, cruelty, campaign - "the easier it is to be submitted," but also understands when it is declared in a manner so open.

   Grotesque imperialism: Justin Bieber, Angelina Jolie and Lady Gaga, who suggest to attack

Want to enslave all sovereign world? You want all the oil for itself? Well, this is your military position, let the rest of the world to defend against it, and we - that we are now directly affected by the conflict - at least we know about what was happening.
But not so ... at least not when the control rod imperialist machine managed by the latest Nobel Peace Prize.

Call for an attack on another country does not issued by the military leadership, the president, Congress - now call the invasion of Justin Bieber, Angelina Jolie, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and other synthetic products of American pop culture.
 Of course, we talk about the latest campaign, "Kony 2012" which invites the world to unite and donate their money, the fight against the cruel tyrant Joseph Kony which ravaged Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and elsewhere.
Joseph Kony is the leader of the guerrilla group known as the "Lord's Resistance Army" (LRA) and the terms of the general chaos that prevails in the region is completely irrelevant and minor character.

First, it is important to highlight the amazing power of "social media" and to serve the same as the long arm of U.S. foreign policy.
 About Joseph Konyiu, an obscure figure even obscure organization, any in Africa probably has hundreds, and the direct product of the imperialist policy in the post-colonial, or rather, neo-colonial era (more on the DRC and the region: The story of the heart of Africa : Republic of Congo (Brazzaville) and Democratic Republic of Congo - the deeper history of the crime), until recently, almost no one knew anything, and today it already compares itself with Hitler.

                                                Joseph Kony, leader of the movement LRA

The propaganda campaign has spread rapidly, and Facebook is simply halt the machine once it starts.

Just as in the case of Syria, we have hundreds of evidence that the country is under attack by organized terrorist groups, foreign murderers, mercenaries and criminals - all of this information is very little worth, the vast majority of the population has been thoroughly "brainwashed" and for them is a mass murderer Assad as soon as it was the colonel.
  If his body is brutally executed one days worn in the streets of Damascus, just as it was the case with Gaddafi in Sirta and later in Misratah, "broad audience" throughout Europe and the U.S. will feel relieved knowing that the world is more peaceful because it is another "tyrant" removed summarily, without trial.

   Social networks, Facebook and mass psychosis

And this is perhaps the saddest things in this story, the mass - that scorn evil - evil cheer for thinking that the fight against evil. Only the wave monolithic and gigantic propaganda, that these days even deeper into the sphere of general psychosis.
Namely, if any "mainstream" media, like CNN for example, revealed that Joseph Kony is the biggest killer on the soil of Africa, many people today, the news will still wait a bit skeptical. Human consciousness is on the trail of propaganda, propaganda knows that there is socio-politically motivated. Accordingly - and the advertising itself has to change and transform their own channels of influence. Media such as Facebook is ideal for these purposes.
People no longer believe CNN because there is a perception that these "media corporation", but when it comes to the popular "short preview" - things are different, because these are the "real" people, with names, often smiling - "if they all claim that Kony is a brutal beast who raped children across Africa, is engaged in cannibalism and terrorized many nations, and it probably is."

This is nothing but an attempt to "global" campaign in the manner of the orange revolution. The goal is to create the impression that the "authentic" people, almost spontaneously, learned a great evil in the heart of Africa and is now literally asking their Imperatore to take action on this issue.
Of course, this statement is somewhat dramatized - but if it continues to serve imperialism organized campaigns of this kind, it will not surprise us that for that day ordered the bombing of Uganda because it advocates for millions of fans of Justin Bieber.

Heart of Africa, the Republic of Congo, DR Congo, Uganda and others - it is the richest part of the world, according to many, even richer than the Middle East. America and the U.S. companies that derive enormous wealth for decades, while the population is by far the poorest in the world.
For example, the state is perhaps the DR Congo - the amount of valuable resources - the richest country in the world and its poorest people in the world, at the end of the list according to all sources (IMF, World Bank).

   Paramilitary groups like the LRA are the product of harsh neo-colonialism

Why is this so? Because of the paramilitary groups and obscure figures such as Joseph Kony? No, no. Africa is in this state solely because of neo-colonialism and exploitation of the biggest companies, which mostly come from the U.S., but also other countries.
As for the paramilitary groups, the majority is created directly by the companies that derive their ores, minerals, oil and other valuables from their country.

Imperialist machine, always hungry for resources, has created a hell in the DR Congo, Uganda, South Sudan and elsewhere.
In the past 10-odd years have killed millions of people, and mass rapes have become a weapon of war.
Foreign interference is guilty of almost every conflict in the African past 100 years. And now this same machine should violently invade indoors and make peace?
This is precisely the goal of a mass campaign called "KONY 2012".

Kony Campaign 2012 advocates the strengthening of the Ugandan army, recall - the government of Uganda for many years one of the biggest allies in the region. Ugandan troops are also fighting in Somalia on the U.S., Britain and France.
For "strong army of Uganda" today mourning Justin Bieber and Angelina Jolie, and devote a few words of this army.
Ugandan military force to smash the uprising in the region Acho, thousands of innocent people ended up in concentration camps. From the brutal terror of the LRA created a resistance movement.
Ugandan troops also occupied parts of eastern DR Congo and systematically plundering the country concerned and a great wealth. "Hunting" Kony, that same army of Uganda in Central African Republic has committed a massive looting and arson, operated a large chain of prostitution, raped and girls infected with HIV.

   The crisis, donate - be part of a global imperialist machine

What a great "Facebook" campaign really wants? Campaign "Kony 2012" wants to donate their money to these rapists and barbarians to fight for the same "human rights".
Hundreds of U.S. troops are already in Uganda to assisting them.
Of course, the resistance LRA, most likely to engage in the same barbaric acts wherever they arrive. That is why Kony and his LRA elected to the central theme of this campaign.

The only solution - to which the U.S. would never agree - a complete withdrawal from Uganda and the region.

It is important in this context to know that this is a brutal propaganda, which, like everything that is currently being carried out, serves only to create a consensus of the population throughout the Western world in terms of U.S. intervention in the center of Africa.
Justin Bieber, Angelina Jolie, "Syrian Danny", "lesbian blogger from Damascus" - they are all exploited for propaganda purposes.

   "Invisible Children" have a highly visible motifs

The organization behind the campaign, "Kony 2012" is called "Invisible Children" (Eng. invisible children). Like any other humanitarian organization that boasts that "helping Africa", much of the donated money saved himself in the pocket. According to research organization IC, which has long operated in this area, only 32% of the money provides services to African children, the rest goes to the big salaries, travel expenses, transportation, film production, etc.
IC, like most humanitarian organizations around the world, is plain marketing trick that aims at human altruism and humanity of these impulses and live comfortably (in relation to the subject: 2nd anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, full of pockets of U.S. companies or to make money on someone else's tragedy) .
But the "invisible children" are not as many other charitable organizations, those directly supporting military intervention. Ugandan army and the Sudanese army, both are accused of mass rape and robbery, but the IC and still wholeheartedly supports. According to the IC at that because, "Ugandan army is the best armed of all the armies in the region."
It is also clear why - to be the biggest partner of the United States and is having quite a modernized army.
It is interesting to note how the organization of the IC 2006th admitted that Kony is no longer on the territory of Uganda.
The Journal Gazette of Foreign Affairs says the IR-to "manipulate the facts for their own strategic objectives, it exaggerates the number of kidnappings and killings by the LRA and forced to the fact that the LRA uses the children of soldiers. Kony is shown as a brutal man, literally the embodiment of all evil. "

Chris Blattman, professor of political science at Yale, wrote in the IR program: "Something there is very ambiguous, naive, even dangerous, about their ideas about saving Africa and African children. They appear to be white-rescuers and the ideology tailor their program often completely wrong program. "

Journalist Eugene Puryear, the PSL, says: "Reasonable people may not fall into the ranks of bloody coalition, reasonable people must denounce campaign Kony 2012 as a deadly agenda that aims to immerse the whole region into a big mess. Only solution for these people must be in severe cyclical polling of neo-colonialism, which resulted in underdevelopment, ethnic conflicts and political corruption. "

   Scent oil lures military machine 

Africa is already enslaved to the extent that it is hard to imagine her relief in the near future, but what is currently preparing even worse - the imperialism openly willing to fight wars on every continent of the world - a great entry into Africa would not have led to massive exploitation she was already on the scene, but would have done the extreme exploitation.
For this reason, against such poisonous propaganda campaigns such as "Kony 2012" should be fought with all his forces in order to expose their real agenda.

We will end this article with a newspaper clip that should in a few sentences to explain the whole situation is just being in the area of Central Africa:
"One of the most spectacular discoveries in the area of Uganda - the area of cracks Albertine, located on the shores of Lake Albert, on the border between Uganda and DR Congo, discovered large oil reserves. It is said that initially require approximately $ 10 billion investment. If all goes well, Uganda will soon become a producer at Mexico. Foreign investment should be doubled this year. "(The Economist newspaper, 05.31.2010)

Very bad news for the U.S., Britain and Israel

After the expected, but still great, the victory of Vladimir Putin, the Russian presidential election, many analysts are still trying to answer - what does this mean for Russia, but also for the world?
One thing is certain, the Western media, even before the election, tried in every possible way to diminish the legitimacy of Russian elections, Putin calling for fraud.
But the Russians to these threats, aimed at the incitement of demonstrations, answer the installation of a large surveillance systems, so that ultimately the Russian elections were one of the more transparent in the world in general.
Of course, it will not stop criticism - today announced the head of OCCE's (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe), Croatian politician Tonino Picula, who said that the elections in Russia had "serious problems" as the main argument states that "no any real competition "and that" the government misused the resources to provide the ultimate winner." It also states that "procedures fallen during the counting votes says AP and Russia Today.

After the victory of Putin appeared before more than 100,000 Muscovites who lined the streets to celebrate his victory, in an emotional speech last night, among other things said: "This was not the only presidential victories, this was an important test for us all - test of political maturity and independence of our nation. we have shown us no one can impose anything, and we showed that our nation is able to recognize who is committed to progress and who has only one political objective - to destroy Russia. Today, the people showed how such a scenario is not possible in this country. Glory to Russia! "

  The western media - a symbol of single-mindedness

Criticism of "competitiveness" are totally without foundation, thus directly disparage the attitude of the majority population of Russia. Today they are the media trying to explain that "give voice to the wrong man." On the other hand, Putin's big win - some are expecting to get "only" 50% of the vote - in fact a direct response, the majority of young people, to the fierce attacks from the west on their land and share "lessons" for whom to vote, against whom the protest etc.
Remember, this is not the first time that the Western media with its aggressive rhetoric directly created the counter-effect of their initial ideas - remember to Hungary late last year. On the streets of Budapest and elsewhere, many people joined the protests against the government of Viktor Orban, however, when the Western media - apparently caught "strategic opportunity" to bring down, not too fit Orban government, went into a giant smear campaign(CNN wrote of "disrupted and unstable democracy" in Hungary), the nation quickly turned around again and soon we had hundreds of thousands of people on the streets - but now in support of Orban and against the EU.

Of course, Hungarian and Russian example not too common, but both serve as a reference to the aggressive media campaigns are often counterproductive actual wishes of their editors.

Talk to RT: Adrian Salbuchi about Putin's victory - "a great thing for the entire free world"

As for the analysis of Putin's victory, the famous international consultant and author  Adrian Salbuchi said in an interview with RT that this "brake against the neo-colonialist West."

Adrian Salbuchi - international consultant, analyst and author. Frequently writes about global issues, argued that Greece allow bankruptcy modeled on Argentina

"From the perspective of Latin America (author's note Salbuchi occurs from Argentina) can openly say that this is very bad news for the U.S., Britain and Israel. This is evident in the Western media, Putin gave the victory as" just a rumor "the explosion in the Congo and the railway accident in Poland. It was on CNN, BBC, Fox News, but it and the Deutsche Welle, RAI-Italian and Spanish media.

On the other hand, for example, from the perspective of Argentina, I can only congratulate President Putin, because this is good news for the whole world. Today, more than ever, when the strength of the movement towards global hegemony practiced by the United States, Britain, some countries of the EU and Israel - Russia is a key country, along with China, of course, but Russia is a key country, which must serve as a buffer zone, brakes, and even a wall against this neo-colonialism by the Western powers implemented. "

When asked the reporter, the West can expect from Putin, apparently because they worked a little easier with Medvedev, Salbuchi responds: "The only language you understand the world leaders, who are now cornered in Washington and London, the only real language to reach them when someone looks at them straight in the eye and tells them 'No, this will go. "I deeply believe that Mr. Putin is known to look the enemy straight in the eye without blinking."

On the issue, whether to change Russia after Putin became president again, Salbuchi states: "I think that Russia will continue to move towards a position which she rightfully belongs to each, and that is to be a global force - which is always and only a was a bit 'confused' during the 90's - and the world must create a balance, so to avoid being overrun by the whole world - I will only say the U.S., EU and Britain, because it would sound a bit childish, actually it is a global elite who fatten themselves within those countries. They must be stopped, I know very well how they operate ... you end up with the Middle East, will come here - in Latin America. Certainly it is one of the key reasons why, for example, Venezuelan state television followed in detail the Russian elections, while the Western media have virtually ignored the process. "

 RT:  "What will happen to the street protests, will disappear - now that Putin had won such a majority, or will grow under the influence of the opposition?"
Salbuchi: "In Argentina we know a lot about street protests, clearly - part of the opposition is really authentic and they are tired of constantly watching Putin, so for example 17% of the votes went Žuganovu, representative of the Communist Party. Saying this, it is significant that the most protesters in Russia, but throughout the world, run by a small number of very well trained, financed and trained provocateurs who do not care for the interests of the Russian people, or earlier Syrian and Libyan peoples, as we have seen recently, but only in the interest of major global geo -Western political forces that would really like to come to the chaos on the streets of Moscow and other Russian cities, based on the city plan, as built and based on the protests in Benghazi, Tripoli and now in Homs and Damascus. "

The last question - if the opposition failed because they lacked proper leaders who would do could hurt Putin's election, Salbuchi concludes: "There are two kinds of people - politicians and statesmen. What the world needs at this moment they are statesmen, think small. country .. you have given us a Adenauer, Churchill and de Gaulle, now give us a Merkel, Sarkozy and Cameron are really just low-ranking politicians. On the other hand, many people, especially people of Russia realize that Vladimir Putin and statesman I'm sure it will not go away so quickly. "

R.I.P. America

It has been painful and disgusting for me to watch the US continue to devolve into a beast worse than any real or perceived ‘terrorist’. With the passage of The Defense Authorization Act, aka: Bill S.1867, the leadership of America has proven to the world that are psychopathic, traitorous, treasonous and do not stand for anything that has made America in the past the beacon of freedom, liberty, democracy and hope in this world. They have also proven they are anti-freedom, anti-liberty, anti-democracy, anti-justice, and anti-rule of law.

Whatever scant remains of a moral high ground the US government may have claimed in the midst of all of its grotesque lies and misdeeds, and its malfeasance of office since 9-11-2001, it was forfeited it with the passage of S.1867.

When any citizen of the US can be perceived, deemed, or even deliberately painted as an enemy combatant of ‘this government’, that person can now be detained without trial indefinitely. To Hell with the US Constitution, to Hell with the 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments, to Hell with the right of habeas corpus, and the Bill of Rights and the law of the land. Any sense of decency, any sense of veracity, any sense of leadership was sacrificed with the passage of this monstrously un-Constitutional bill by the Senate and House.

Democracy is now nothing more than hollow words in the land that used to be, yet still pretends to be the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. All pretense of a Constitutional Republic has now been cast aside…as every precept of fairness, equity, liberty and freedom has been forced to its knees before the Almighty US Bolshevik-Fascist Government .

If the Right and the Left do not ‘get it’ by now, nothing will sink reality through their thick-skulls that America has died.

The problem is when ‘this government’ deems it is the United States and the people mean nothing. They are protecting ‘this government’, not the citizens of the United States. It is time for this government to be removed from power and saner minds put in charge that understand that ‘this government’ is no longer We The People or even competent to serve in any role of leadership for any citizenry or people.

                                                       Photo: DeesIllustration. com. property 

I can think of no land, no nation, that would even harbor this band of war criminal nitwits in Washington DC as exiles or ex-pats. It is they who have made enemies, not the people of the United States of America.

The entire world has now been deemed potential enemies of ‘this government’ and the people need to wake up to the reality that they are not being protected. This ‘government’ is doing all of these illegal, un-Constitutional things to protect their own pathetic, criminal, sorry asses.

It is beyond shameful to watch the frauds in DC pretend to be American, yet defecate on the very meaning of freedom and liberty. It is vomitus to have to endure hearing them utter words like justice, rule of law, or ‘American values’ because they stand for none of those concepts.

                                                      Photo: DeesIllustration. com. property 

The world does not hate the freedoms of Americans. They hate the assumptive power and presumptive freedoms of the US government that thinks it can tell any lie, fabricate any war, kill entire villages, destroy entire nations to terminate one alleged ‘terrorist.’ After one egregious act after another, and with no disregard for life whatsoever, they have the gall to pass yet another law to defend them from having to face the truth and be held accountable for their actions that have besmirched and defamed the name of America and all of its citizens.

The true face of The Ugly American abides in Washington, DC. S.1867 can be defined with one word: terrorism.

That control these maniacs wish to have over all persons is to your detriment, not to your benefit. That control now wants you labeled a terrorist or enemy combatant merely for standing up to this wanton abuse of power and pathetic excuse for leadership.

                                                     Photo: DeesIllustration. com. property

America stands for democracy? That has now become one of the greatest lies on this planet.

Anyone who knows anything about American history, King George labeled the likes of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, and even Thomas Jefferson as terrorists.

Thomas Jefferson said it best in the final draft of The Declaration of Independence, dated July 4, 1776:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

                                                       Photo: DeesIllustration. com. property

Ladies and Gentlemen of America, that is exactly where you are right now and it is time you wake up to the reality of it. The government in Washington DC has just proven that it is out of touch, continues to lie to cover up its own sins and now points the finger of ‘terrorists’ and ‘enemy combatant’ squarely at YOU.

Thomas Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers would be on Capitol Hill at this very moment removing this absurd and pathetic excuse of a government from power.

I can see only one ‘benefit’ in having them wring their hands and pass this preposterous anti-freedom, anti-democracy travesty called S.1867. It is simply this – that the bill must now be applied to those very terrorists who passed it. It is the duty of every American citizen to apply this law to those who conceived it and passed it.

Think on that.
