Pictorial "Balance"

The News: BBC pictures from Gaza show one Israeli woman being led away on a stretcher in bloodless stomach pain agony. (I.e. the theatrics of agony). It also shows one neat and clean rubbelized building with absolutely no photos of maimed children's bodies although it does bother to show one Palestianian funeral where the sand has covered the body so that it looks like a gardening exercise.

The Note: What fucks. This is what passes for "pictorial balance" in the USUK press.

Bread Today, Hunger Tomorrow

The News: Explaining why she voted for the communist party in Spain's general election, Gloria Perez chastised president Zapatero for not having done enough "to bring down the price of rents, control mortgage costs, help young people and get us workers better salaries.”

Perez expressed contempt for so-called "tax incentives" and Zapatero's promise of a 400-euro ($620) tax rebate. “That’s bread today, hunger tomorrow. We need reforms that will help us in the long term: better work contracts, better salaries, less inflation.”

The Note: Wouldn't it be nice if workers in the United States had a fraction of Perez's brain power? If they would the "Times" report it?

U.S. Claims Asserts Rights to Space and Cyberspace

The News: The US has released a report criticising China's military spending, and voicing concern over advances in space and cyberspace. China rejected the Pentagon report as a "serious distortion of facts" that could harm its relations with the US. "We do not pose a threat to any country. The US should drop its Cold War mentality," the foreign ministry said in a statement. In the report, Washington claimed that the real Chinese defence budget for 2007 was at least double the stated amount.

The Note 1: It never ceases to amaze how diligently the press works to cover Uncle Sam's shame. How come BBC fails to note that the U.S. military budget exceeds by several fold the Chinese and Russian military budgets combined ?

The Note 2: "Space and Cyberspace" -- where have we heard that phrase before? Indeed! in Billy Kristol's zio-con Project for a New American Century. The U.S. had to project its power and be prepared for the new battles in "space and cybespace". So what this means is that the U.S. is upset someone else might get a leg up into the U.S. owned ethers.

The Next Israel?

The News: Both Ecuador and Venezuela have shut down their embassies in Bogota to protest Colombia’s violations of Ecuador’s territorial sovereignty. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa ordered troops to Colombia’s border. Chavez warned Colombia never to carry out such a raid in Venezuela.

Hugo Chavez: “This could be the start of a war in South America, because, for example, if they ever think of doing something like that in Venezuela, President Uribe, I will send my jet fighters. We are not going to accept that Colombia become the next Israel in our land.”

The Note: Chavez is alluding to Israel "advisors" helping out the Columbian military and Israel citizens illegally selling arms to the Columbian paras

Israel: “No Moral Equation” Between Palestinians and Israelis

The News: Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livini called on the international community to support Israel’s actions. Said Livini: “The world should respect any action taken by Israel in order to defend its citizens. I would like to say that I cannot accept condolences saying that there are victims, both sides. Well, yes, there are victims both sides, but there is no moral equation between these terrorists who are looking for civilians to kill and between the Israeli soldiers who are looking for the terrorists.”

The Note: Nor is their any moral equation between a hand held stick of dynamite and a Jumbo Depleted Uranium Block Buster.... now is there? The United State has been totally moronized by AIPAC, but I wonder how long the rest of the world will continue to respect anything Israel does or palavers.

The Note: A perfect of example of the the Bush Cancer metastasizes throughout society
