Featured Guest(s):
John Laughland, Anthony Fenton

Phil interviews John Laughland, a journalist with the Guardian and a member of the British Helsinki Human Rights Group, about current events in Ukraine. Laughland talks about the bias of mainstream media and argues that the question of 'electoral fraud' is a smokescreen for a broader agenda - the desire of the US to rip Ukraine from Russian influence as part of the goal of gaining control of Russian oil reserves. It is "world geopolitics at the very highest level" in which the so-called 'independent observers' and NGO's promote the fairy-tale of a 'popular uprising' that is actually purchased by Western powers.

Phil also talks with BC journalist Anthony Fenton of the Dominion paper. Fenton exposes Canada's role in supporting the US-sponsored coup against Haiti's popularly elected President Aristide, and in contributing to the continuing illegal occupation of Haiti. Fenton talks about the role of the RCMP in providing training and direction to Haitian police who are conducting a virtual extermination campaign against supporters of Aristide.

TO UNDERSTAND RWANDA'S TRAGEDY: The neglected account of Captain Amadou Deme Senegalese soldier, UN intelligence officer, and witness with a conscience.
Phil Taylor

April 6 1994 is the fateful date of the beginning of the war/genocide/massacres in Rwanda. The plane of President Habyarimana was shot down over the capital city, Kigali, and horrific violence unfolded.

Everyone is asked/ordered to remember (and then told what to remember). Official memory in Rwanda is under the authority of the former Ugandan General and now Rwandan President Paul Kagame, warmly supported by prominent names from the Anglosphere like America's UN ambassador, Samantha Powers (she was not a witness but has no trouble filling pages at great length about the vast lessons to be learned).

On the night of the 6th Kagame, by all accounts, ordered his Rwandan Patriotic Forces (RPF) into attack that very same night, though there was a peace accord in pl...

Annan and Syria: The Master of Disaster 2
Editor

General Mood of Norway (think NATO) has suspended UN observer work in Syria due to hazards, or so he says. The payoff for the Western/cowboy interventionists is they can roll their eyes and noisily argue for showdown with Assad.

Russia continues to point out, in the phrase of Syria's UN ambassador, you cannot be an arsonist and a fireman at the same time. The Annan Plan calls for peaceful resolution between the sides and non-interference. The NATO gang calls for Assad to be removed and provides material assistance to the armed opposition — the same armed opposition which declares the Annan Plan dead and begs for Western intervention.

So where is the dubious Annan? He and co-conspirator Ban Ki-Moon are doing the bidding of the West by placing more pressure on...

Keep an eye on Kofi Annan, He’s the Master of Disaster
Editor

Koffi Annan has been to Damascus for the UN Secretary General. The Syrians had better watch their step with him, he’s as dangerous as a regiment of the Paris led phony Free Syrian Army.

Koffi will try to arrange a UN/Arab League presence in Syria which can then move on to destabilize the government, through such means as disinformation outlets to confuse and demoralize the population and “corridors” for passage of people and weapons to rebel strongholds, safe from Syrian government oversight. That done, when
the time is ripe, when the army has been divided and somewhat disarmed, hostilities can be resumed—with “world opinion” on the side of freshly armed rebels. All blame will placed on Assad.

It should be kept in mind that Koffi Annan did precisely t...

Letter: Wikitweaks / War-mongers try the occult
Observer

Do the Arab states want U.S.-Israeli war on Iran? Their governments answer No!

But through the occult system of Wikileaks gossip dumping, Western editorialists are able to channel the "secret" voices of mid-east Kings and Presidents...and headlines appear "they want us to do it, they want us to do it." For years this claim has been an Israeli mantra on Iran, Gaza, Lebanon, Syria. The "Arabs" want the US/Israel to get rid of somebody but they can't say so openly.

In reality the rise of the Islamic Republic and the growing independence of Turkey has been rather cordially received on the Arab "street", as might be expected by any rational observer of Israel's violent hegemony and nuclearization.

Mighty suspicious actually. Leaks that bolster the...

Open Letter to General Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda
Francis Muhoozi


General Paul Kagame,
President of the Republic of Rwanda
B.P.15 Kigali - RWANDA.
22nd August 2010


Dear Sir,

I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In direct reference to your published article "Rwanda's democracy is still the model for Africa" of 19th August 2010, I beg to disagree with you as  your close friends the Americans also reminded you through their White House statement of Friday 13th August 2010 Mr. President that, "Democracy is about more than holding elections."

Unfortunately, August 09th 2010 was yet another missed chance for the people of Rwanda to take a step forward towards peace and reconciliation. It was a missed opportunity for all...

Genocide Denial and Genocide Facilitation: Gerald Caplan and The Politics of Genocide
Edward S. Herman and David Peterson

In his June 17 "review" of our book The Politics of Genocide, for Pambazuka News,1 Gerald Caplan, a Canadian writer who Kigali's New Times described as a "leading authority on Genocide and its prevention,"2 focuses almost exclusively on the section we devote to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.3  Caplan s

Like Gerald Caplan's hostile "review" of our book, The Politics of Genocide, Adam Jones's aggressive attack on our response to Caplan can be explained in significant part by Jones's deep commitment to an establishment narrative on the Rwandan genocide that we believe to be false -- one that misal...

Buzz Through the Looking Glass - Random Observations from the CAW Convention
Elaine O.

When I heard that the Canadian Auto Workers were holding their convention in my home town, I decided to attend. It was as interesting as I expected, but maybe not in the way I hoped. Here are some of the moments I observed.

It was hard to tell if this was a union convention or some weird kind of performance theatre. Buzz Hargrove was winding up his acceptance speech after another coronation ... I mean election, as President of his union when it felt like we had slipped through the mirror into Alice's topsy-turvy world. All of a sudden these words appeared on the big screens at the front of the Vancouver Convention Centre hall:

"I love you, will you marry me?"

Was Buzz proposing to all the 1000 delegates, staff and observers to engage i...
