US presidents keep invading other people’s countries. Why is Obama, who promised change, no different?:

“Why have Obama’s war policies turned out to be little different from those of George Bush? Because, explains this short video by Stop the War’s John Rees, “US foreign policy is not mainly determined by the character of the individual in the White House.”

“In his latest Timeline film, Stop the War’s John Rees explains why Barack Obama — the candidate who promised ‘change you can believe in’ — has turned out to be a president whose war policies are largely consistent with those of his predecessor.

‘US foreign policy is not mainly determined by the character of the individual in the White House’ but by a wider US governing elite which has key figures embedded in Obama’s administration, just as they were in the previous government.

As the US economy weakens relative to the rest of the world, this elite sees overwhelming military superiority as a way of maintaining America’s international power, whatever Obama’s hopes to be different from George Bush.”

F.B.I. Provocateur ‘Journalist’ Called for McKinney Lynching:

“It’s been revealed that incendiary blogger and radio host Hal Turner was an FBI informant and agent provocateur. Turner is being charged with making death threats against Connecticut legislators and Illinois judges and he is to claim that his actions were legal because he did the same when employed by the FBI.
Prosecutors have acknowledged that Turner was an informant who spied on radical right-wing organizations. But Turner went much further than spying. He also called for former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney to be lynched. Turner called McKinney a ‘violent, black, racist, bitch’ whose lynching would teach other Blacks that ‘white people are tired of your bullshit, behave or die.'”

DN! Israel Rejects Vague US Calls for Peace Talks:

“Israel Rejects Vague US Calls for Peace Talks

The Israeli government is rebuffing mild US calls for peace talks with Palestinians toward reaching a two-state settlement. On Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Palestinians must recognize Israel as a Jewish state as a precondition for future talks. Palestinians have called the demand a non-starter, because it would mean not just acknowledging but legitimizing Israels takeover of their land and the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who used to live there. Netanyahu announced the demand after meeting US envoy George Mitchell. Mitchell said the US will insist on pursuing a two-state solution.”
