Who is Running the show and Why


It is easy for us to blame Israel as an aggressive rogue state for the murderous aggression against Lebanon. It is easy for some to libel the Jews for their blind nationalistic support of Israel (though that support is not unanimous) as well but we must keep in mind who is ultimately in control. Gilles de'Aymery give a clear and realist assessment of the situation. As he points out, this is not simply a Repug/neocon agenda but incorporates the most reactionary interests of the corporate ruling class. They are mostly unified and it will take a real understanding of the issue and unity on the part of the rest of us to change the course of this juggernaut.

I read your comment on truthdig.com. The story was titled A tale of two transitions. I understand that our media twists and distorts our views with media campaigns. I wanted to know if your from cuba and have a more enlightened view of what the people of cuba want for thier country?

Though I lived there as a child, I am not Cuban. I am sure however that they do not want to live with the poverty and lack of basic services that citizens of most countries south of our border endure. They do not want to return to the misery and oppression that existed under Batista prior to the revolution. I'm sure they do want a more prosperous economy, more access to the rest of the world and a "loosening up" of the well founded seige mentality that restrict their range of public opinion and freedom to travel. That will only happen when their country doesn't feel the constant threat of terrorism and invasion that we impose on it.
