When War Games Go Live: “Staging” a “Humanitarian War” against “SOUTHLAND”

by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

On November 02 2010, more than four months prior to the onset of Operation Odyssey Dawn, France and the UK announced the conduct of war games under Operation “SOUTHERN MISTRAL 2011” against “AN IMAGINARY COUNTRY’ called “SOUTHLAND”, living under a “DICTATORSHIP”  which allegedly “was responsible for an attack against France’s national interests”.

The Franco-British (humanitarian) air operation against “SOUTHLAND” was to be carried out pursuant to an IMAGINARY “UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION NO: 3003”.

The war games were scheduled to start on March 21, 2011. THESE FRANCO-BRITISH WAR GAMES  NEVER TOOK PLACE. OPERATION “SOUTHERN MISTRAL” WENT LIVE ON MARCH 19, 2011 (two days prior to the scheduled date).

Still think the NATO intervention in Libya is anything but a planned regime change?  Read the rest of this article here.

The Devil’s Priests by Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D.

In the course of my research on health matters, I often run across criticisms of the conventional medical profession by practitioners of alternative medicine.  Every now and then, I find a gem from a conventional physician who has reached a sufficient level of despondency that they feel the need to blow the whistle on the profession for the good of the public.

Rarely does this seem to do any good as indeed, we’re so fully indoctrinated from birth to believe that doctors deserve our unquestioning trust, it takes a hell of a lot to break free from this bond.  I went through a similar dissolution of faith in my teenage years when I broke free from my religious indoctrination.  After living for 18 years as a Catholic, it took several years before I could say, even silently to myself, “There is no God!” without wincing.  It is no doubt because of my personal experiences that I found the subject article particularly striking.

Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D. was a long-standing conventional medical practitioner who obviously became seriously dissatisfied with the state of the profession and, as usually, happens garnered the disfavour of that profession.  He wrote a number of articles and books which I hope to get around to one day but I think this article gives a general understanding of what he saw as wrong with the profession.  Although Mendelsohn died in 1988, I can still recognise the same systemic faults today and I would urge everyone to read his words and then venture more cautiously into the devil’s lair.

The following is an extract published by The One Click Group from Mendelsohn’s Confessions of a Medical Heretic

The Devil’s Priests

By Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D.

Chapter 7: [1991] Confessions of a Medical Heretic

I always laugh when someone from the American Medical Association or some other doctors’ organization claims that doctors have no special powers over people. After I finish laughing, I always ask how many people can tell you to take off your clothes and you’ll do it.

Because doctors are really the priests of the Church of Modern Medicine, most people don’t deny them their extra influence over our lives. After all, most doctors are honest, dedicated, intelligent, committed, healthy, educated, and capable, aren’t they? The doctor is the rock upon which Modern Medicine’s Church is built, isn’t he?

Not by a long shot. Doctors are only human — in the worst ways. You can’t assume your doctor is any of the nice things listed above, because doctors turn out to be dishonest, corrupt, unethical, sick, poorly educated, and downright stupid more often than the rest of society.

Lynch Law and Summary Executions in Rebel-Held Libya | Black Agenda Report

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“The world’s most imperial-dependent, ill-disciplined and whining ‘liberation movement’ is still blaming black ‘mercenaries’ and soldiers from Chad for its failures in the field.” Chad, meanwhile, has officially asked the “international coalition” to protect its civilians from the rebels, who have executed “dozens” of Chadian migrant workers. In rebel-held Libya, black Africans and Gaddafi supporters are the people in need of protection.

“Dozens of Chadians have been ‘singled out’ and ‘executed,’ falsely accused of acting as mercenaries for Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, according to Chad.”

The African nation of Chad has called on Libya’s Euro-American “humanitarian” overseers to protect Chadian citizens from lynching at the hands of rebels backed by the West. The government in N’Djamena, which certainly has no interest in antagonizing the Euro-American juggernaut that has assumed a “responsibility to protect” whomever it designates as “civilians” in the territory of its northern neighbor, issued a formal request for “international coalition forces involved in Libya and international human rights organizations to stop these abuses against Chadians and other migrant Africa workers.” Dozens of Chadians have been “singled out” and “executed,” falsely accused of acting as mercenaries for Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, according to Chad, 300,000 of whose citizens were among the 1.5 million black African migrant laborers in Libya at the time of the February revolt.

CrossTalk: Global Intervasions

In this edition of Peter Lavelle’s CrossTalk: Interventions followed by invasions don’t seem to go out of fashion. It is common practice that Western militaries get stuck in foreign lands and for an indefinite period of time. Yes, empires can bomb countries, but can they restore states after breaking them up? And will this intervention syndrome eventually turn into a political cancer? Guests: John Rees, Khariri Abaza and Omar Turbi.

Omar Turbi: When I was in Benghazi I talked to the people down there, I found out for myself that they talked to some of the soldiers that belonged to Ghadafi, are loyalists, and they had been given a mandate to come to town, level the town of 900,000 people literally level the town, rape the women and kill every man from 18 to 40…

Peter Lavelle: Well Omar,… we just hear this from people like you… There is no evidence of this except people like you who come on programs like mine… it’s never corroborated outside of that…

It’s about time everyone started asking for undeniable proof before consenting to military intervention in another countries affairs.

Get to sleep fast!

Here’s a little tip for getting to sleep quickly that is working quite well for me and my wife.  I learned it from the Life Science course by T. C. Fry, Lesson 15 in an attached article by A.F. Willat entitled How To Put Yourself To Sleep Easily.

I usually have little trouble getting to sleep first thing at night but sometimes can lie awake for ages after being disturbed during the night.  Since I started using this technique, my stints of insomnia have almost completely disappeared.  It will only work if your body truly needs sleep and I’ve realised that when it doesn’t work, it really is time for me to get up.

Here is A.F. Willat’s technique:

If you have difficulty going to sleep when you feel that you need it, and your brain is so active that you cannot stop thinking and it is keeping you awake, you can overcome the trouble by following in detail a certain routine of thinking positively. The reason you have this problem is because something important is on your mind at the time.

Some persons fall asleep easily because they do not take life so seriously and do not worry about other people and their troubles. They are not so “unselfish” and just accept life as it shows up. So, for those persons who are always concerned about others troubles, the following procedure will put you to sleep very easily.

When you are thoroughly convinced that you really need some sleep, all you have to do is to purposely mix up your thoughts so completely that you won’t know what you were thinking about. It’s that simple, and you need only put your mind on a simple, routine system of thinking which is so easy to follow that it becomes almost automatic to continue it after you have been interrupted by the interjection of unintentional and unrelated thoughts.

Before trying to follow this method, you should put your body in a natural, relaxed position with nothing to disturb your comfort. Lie directly on your back in a straight position and place your arms alongside your body so that the blood can flow freely. Then place your legs in a straight position to get rid of all the possible kinks and bends in all other parts of the body.

Put a pillow under the head, but not under the shoulders. Now, slowly take deep breaths so your lungs fill with air. Then exhale all the way to empty them completely. Inhale again to fill the lungs normally, and then try to inhale a little more after that. Exhale normally, and then try to exhale still more.

Your next step is to imagine walking over to a blackboard with imaginary chalk in your hand and slowly draw a vertical straight line from near the top to the bottom of the board. Do this several times more, as naturally as you can. Now, imagine that your are slowly drawing the figure two (2) extending the full height of the board. Do this a few times in your natural handwriting that you can be proud of. It must be done easily. Next, do the same with the other figures, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

Any other routine system of mixing up your thoughts could be as effective, but this method has been used for a long time and is perfectly satisfactory.

If you do it very slowly, you’ll probably be asleep before you know it, and when you wake up you won’t remember what figure you drew last.

Doing the thinking rapidly will only keep you awake. Using ten seconds or more to draw each figure will stop your thinking, you’ll become drowsy, and then lose consciousness entirely.

Even if you should wake up in the middle of the night, you will be able to put yourself back to sleep more easily than before.

You must never doubt your ability to have this routine plan work. Don’t think about it. Just do it, and know that if you follow the directions correctly it will put you to sleep every time.

Chris Hedges: This Is What Resistance Looks Like – Chris Hedges’ Columns – Truthdig

The phrase consent of the governed has been turned into a cruel joke. There is no way to vote against the interests of Goldman Sachs. Civil disobedience is the only tool we have left.

We will not halt the laying off of teachers and other public employees, the slashing of unemployment benefits, the closing of public libraries, the reduction of student loans, the foreclosures, the gutting of public education and early childhood programs or the dismantling of basic social services such as heating assistance for the elderly until we start to carry out sustained acts of civil disobedience against the financial institutions responsible for our debacle. The banks and Wall Street, which have erected the corporate state to serve their interests at our expense, caused the financial crisis.

The Price Of Dignity In Libya « The Cynical Arab

Roqayah Chamseddine’s poignant article brilliantly cuts through the media and political hype surrounding the current situation in Libya.

“And so, where is the dignity in shaking the bloodied hands of an empire which touts its undying allegiance to “humanitarianism” yet unashamedly lines streets with corpses tagged “collateral damage”?”

As the Anglo-American French coalition sustains its “humanitarian” military assault on Libya with a fiery downpour of missiles and CIA operatives alongside British special forces and MI6 intelligence officers continue to work in Libya, some for weeks, “as part of a shadow force of Westerners” the mainstream body of activists residing in the United States of America have raised the Libyan flag in solidarity with calls for air strikes against Libya.  Read the rest here.
