An NSA-Approved Guide to Revolution

| July 12, 2013

Tahrir Square Activists who advocate for violent revolution don’t advertise their views on the Internet for obvious reasons. That being said, Storm Clouds Gathering treads a really fine line with their recent. Revolution: An Instruction Manual. They don’t exactly advocate using violence to dismantle corporate fascism. But they don’t really condemn it, either. Instead they […]

Palestine’s Arab Spring

| September 21, 2012

A September 15th article (Revolution in the Air at Last) in the highly conservative Economist is predicting possible revolution in Palestine. It’s extremely good news for antiwar activists, economists, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey and all other halfway sane people seeking to thwart a threatened Israeli attack on Iran. […]

CNN and the Bahraini Royal Family – Part II

| September 19, 2012

(This second post relates to US media censorship of Obama’s hypocritical policy towards Bahrain’s pro-democracy movement.) For the most part, the US media has been totally silent on the Bahraini pro-democracy movement and Obama’s decision to back the repressive regime that seeks to crush them. On September 4th, Glenn Greenwald published an opinion piece in […]

The Multinationals Behind the Civil War in Syria

| July 17, 2012

In my opinion, a brilliant analysis by Tony Cartalucci at Land Destroyer Report is a must-read: chiefly because it identifies the corporate interests behind creating, funding and arming the Free Syrian Army, the Syrian National Council and other rebel groups that have taken up arms against the Assad government. We already know their primary agenda […]

The Chinese Finance Angolan Reconstruction

| May 16, 2012

(This is the second of two blogs contrasting US and Chinese foreign policy in Angola and other oil-rich African countries.) The Angolan civil war ended in 2002 with one million dead, four million permanently exiled and a country rich in natural resources littered with landmines and crumbling infrastructure. The MPLA government was left with the […]

The World Tomorrow – Assange’s New Chat Show

Still under house arrest, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange discusses the experience of solitary confinement with the new president of Tunisia.  President Marzouki offers him asylum. Fascinating interview on RT:

The ICNC Role in the Arab Spring

| March 18, 2012

(This is the last of five posts about the American godfather of nonviolent resistance, Gene Sharp, and the role of CIA and Pentagon-funded foundations and think tanks in funding and promoting nonviolent resistance) In the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011, Sharp and the Albert Einstein Institution (AEI) seem to have handed the baton to his […]

Why the CIA Funds Nonviolence Training

| March 10, 2012

(This is the first of five posts about the American godfather of nonviolent resistance, Gene Sharp, and the role of CIA and Pentagon-funded foundations and think tanks in funding and promoting nonviolent resistance) One important aspect of the debate over  “diversity of tactics” (i.e. the decision whether to be exclusively nonviolent) in the Occupy movement […]

Occupy Wall Street: The View from Davos

| January 23, 2012

The World Economic Forum Weighs In A British acquaintance has sent me a link to one of the background documents to be used when world leaders gather for the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland January25-29. The document is called Global Risks 2012 ( The World Economic Forum is a Swiss non-profit corporation that brings […]

Is Occupy Wall Street Just a “Color” Revolution?

| December 13, 2011

(This is the second of two posts exploring the OWS commitment to nonviolence) The main advantage of nonviolent resistance is its effectiveness in reaching large numbers of potential supporters. History shows that civil disobedience, by itself, is relatively ineffective in producing genuine political change. The nonviolent “color” revolutions in Eastern Europe and Egypt have been […]
