"The Empire in Africa" Documentary Screens This Week at Cinema Village Sets Record Straight on Blood Diamonds

Cinema Libre Studios | Hollywood loves a good action film. “Blood Diamond,” set in Sierra Leone during the civil war in the 1990s, is already generating Oscar buzz. But the film, like most of the international media, fails to reveal the true reasons behind the decade long civil war. “The Empire In Africa,” hopes to set the record straight when it opens in theatres on December 8 in New York, Los Angeles and Madison, WI. more...  0 Comments

The Marla Ruzicka Story -- The *Real* Story

by Christian Parenti | No one who was a threat -- let alone any real threat -- to the U.S. imperialist war machine would ever be gushingly and pervasively celebrated by it, the President, the Congress, imperialist politicians, and the military, no less, as well as the political establishment's corporate media. Marla Ruzicka -- even posing for pictures on top of tanks and in group hugs with gun-posing American soldiers, let alone using the war and exploiting the misery of the Iraqi people to parlay that into a hoped-for lucrative cushy position inside the Pentagon or State Department, feathering her nest and her new career with military-industrial complex money (yet still a pittance of that spent on the bombs of war) -- served as a willing PR front for that machine. Furthermore, she was willing to collect and *give* that information directly to the US *military*, providing it with, in effect, valuable intelligence on the Iraqi people (how many males and females of which ages, including possible fighting age, in each family, and what their resources and professional/community positions were, perhaps a community critic of the US war, maybe an intellectual, a journalist, a teacher, or a doctor/nurse who could patch up Iraqi wounded resistace fighters, and who in each family might have gotten shot -- perhaps a resistance member? -- by the US military) under the guise of humanitarian relief. Here is what progressive journalist Christian Parenti had to say about the darling of the U.S. imperialist military machine: more...  1 Comments

Israeli Terror: The Checkpoint Generation

Amira Hass | The truth is that even the soldiers' parents should not be interested in these explanations. They should, however, be very worried about their country sending their sons and daughters on an apartheid mission: to restrict Palestinian mobility within the occupied territory, to narrow the Palestinian expanse in order to enable Jews to move freely within that same occupied territory and in order to increase their expanse within it. In order to carry out this mission in full, facing the natives, the soldiers must feel and act like "superiors."

William Fletcher: “Israel is a Rabid State!”

William Hughes | Israel and the Apartheid-era South Africa regime have a lot in common, said William Fletcher. They are both “settler states,” who created myths that God had given them “the land,” and that the land “was unoccupied upon arrival.” They also both portrayed themselves as “victims” and their aggressions as a “defensive act.” Fletcher said: “Israel is a rabid state,” which is capable of a maniacal act, like “unleashing a nuclear weapon.” more...  1 Comments
