Con “kenianos anti-colonialistas” como estos, ¿quién necesita a los imperialistas?
En el 2010, Newt Gingrich dijo que el presidente de EE.UU., Barack Obama, nos resulta “incomprensible”, al menos que usemos su orientación ideológica “keniana y anti-colonialista” como punto de referencia para entender sus bizarras acciones. Pues Obama ha sido increíblemente exitoso en ocultar su profundo desprecio por el colonialismo, hasta el punto de alabar a…

Putin e Obama concordam: Para o caminho dos espinhos!
Desde que li 1984 na adolescência, estive fascinado pela presciência de George Orwell. O caso de Edward Snowden e Gleen Greenwald destacou um aspecto dessa sagacidade preditiva, mas o slogan “nós sempre estivemos em guerra com a Lestásia” jamais esteve em mais evidência do que na questão da Ucrânia, Crimeia e Rússia. O desenvolvimento mais…
Putin y Obama están de acuerdo: ¡todos al zarzal!
Desde que leí 1984 en la adolescencia, he sentido una perpetua fascinación por la presciencia de George Orwell. La saga Edward Snowden/Glenn Greenwald llamó nuestra atención sobre un aspecto de lo que Orwell predijo tan agudamente, pero el “siempre hemos estado en guerra con Estasia” está volviendo a la palestra debido a la… “situación”… con…
Con “Anti-Colonialisti Keniani” Come Lui, Chi Ha Bisogno di Imperialisti?
Nel 2010 Newt Gingrich spiegò che il presidente americano Barack Obama “non si capisce” se non si tiene conto del suo orientamento “anticoloniale keniano” come punto di riferimento interpretativo del suo comportamento bizzarro. Certo che Obama è riuscito a nascondere benissimo il suo odio profondo verso il colonialismo; tanto che ha elogiato l’Europa, in un…
Como não responder a acusações de hipocrisia
Mais de dez anos atrás, blogueiros neoconservadores cunharam o termo “fisking” para nomear a atividade polêmica (originalmente demonstrada contra o jornalista de esquerda Robert Fisk) de desmontar um comentário, frase a frase, analisando e refutando cada trecho dele. Embora as ideias neoconservadoras sejam tanto incorretas quanto repugnantes, a técnica é válida. E as observações recentes…
“Eleven Years of War” on C4SS Media
C4SS Media presents Jonathan Carp‘s “Eleven Years of War” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford. “The Iraq War was, as wars go, not an especially harsh or brutal one, and was largely conducted according to all the latest precepts of “humanitarian intervention.” The free-fire zones of Vietnam were largely absent, as were the brutalities of massed, prolonged…
With “Kenyan Anti-Colonialists” Like This, Who Needs Imperialists?
Back in 2010 Newt Gingrich explained that US president Barack Obama lies “outside our comprehension” unless we use his “Kenyan, anti-colonial” ideological orientation as a reference point for understanding his bizarre actions. Obama has been amazingly successful at concealing his deep-seated hatred of colonialism — to the point of praising Europe, in a speech last…
O conto de fadas iraquiano de Obama
Prometi a mim mesmo que não ia mais comentar o que diz Barack Obama, porque simplesmente não vale a pena. O que Obama fala só faz sentido se você tiver uma coisa em mente: ele, como os outros políticos, pensa que a maioria das pessoas são idiotas. Porém, eu estou tão chocado com o que…
Obama’s Iraqi Fairy Tale
I promised myself that I would no longer comment on what Barack Obama has to say, because it’s just not worth the time and effort. Obama’s public remarks are comprehensible only if you keep one thing in mind: he, like other politicians, thinks most people are morons. I am so appalled by what Obama said in…
Putin, Obama Agree: Everyone Into the Briar Patch!
Since reading 1984 as an adolescent, I’ve remained perpetually amazed at George Orwell’s prescience. The Edward Snowden/Glenn Greenwald surveillance state strip-tease has recently focused attention on one aspect of that predictive acumen, but “we have always been at war with Eastasia” is returning to the fore due to the … “situation” … with Ukraine, Crimea and…

Eleven Years of War
Today, the Iraq War turns eleven. If you’re an American, you’d be forgiven for thinking the war in Iraq was over. After all, Barack Obama, after being thwarted in his desperate attempts to extend the American military presence there, has been crowing about how he “ended” the war in Iraq. But the war never ended.…

Empire On Their Minds
The conflict in Ukraine has prompted several level-headed commentators to point out that, of all governments, the U.S. government is in no position to lecture Russia about respecting other nations’ borders. When Secretary of State John Kerry said on Meet the Press, “This is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of…

Libertà di Stampa È un Altro Modo di Dire che lo Stato non si Sente Minacciato
