The police in America can do no wrong even when they kill innocent people. Since the police investigate themselves, they destroy the evidence. In the unlikely event of a case going before the court, racist judges ensure police are exonerated. Not surprisingly, so many blacks have been killed in recent months. Black anger is understandable in view of such brutality. Even President Obama says the justice system is broken but is helpless to fix it.

Many people naively believe that history-making is something good. What difference does it or will it make if Hillary Clinton has made history by becoming the first woman to win the nomination of a major political party for the presidential post?

What kind of people would behead a 10-year-old boy in public and even film the gruesome act? If they happen to be Western-backed rebels, they would indulge in such crimes but they can rest easy that the Western corporate media would give this barbaric act a pass. CNN and Fox News did not report this horrific crime; the BBC gave it short shrift. Imagine if a group opposed to the West had indulged in such an act!

July, 2016

America's 'sacred war' in Afghanistan is a total disaster but no one wants to talk about it. Instead, the US and its Nato allies want to shovel more billions into a bottomless pit that has been destroyed beyond repair.
