I witness it every day.

Idiots in highend sports cars and luxury vehicles racing down the freeway in and around cars during rush hour. Knowing full well that the traffic comes to a dead stop over the next hill. What did they gain by racing ahead of me. they got to the traffic jam and sat as I pull up to it. Zero sum gain. Oh and a huge waste of gas every day.

Why do they do it? Nascar mentality?

I don't think that is Nascar mentality as much as some sort of misguided self aggrandizement mentality.

I think you might put your bong back in the closet. One link has nothing to do with the other link.

Russia has done the correct thing. I'm not shocked at all. As far as the 5 of people who disapprove of the gayness of it all in that country it seems like it was a popular move.

As far as Paul---he caved on the issues that got him elected. Seems someone wants to put that last nail in his political coffin. True is that party doesn't have anyone else to fit the spot yet and his will no doubt be reelected.

The destruction of Barack Obama.
16.07.2013

Some people have been surprised or disappointed by certain decisions of President Barack Obama. His war-making, his use of illegal drone strikes, his failure to close Guantanamo, his failure to genuinely help those ordinary Americans who voted him into office, and even his pursuit of whistleblowers like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden have all raised concerns among those with the audacity to hope that he would be different.

But there is no reason for surprise. Obama told us all about himself in his autobiography 'Dreams From My Father'. Most of us just chose not to listen and to then analyse the significance of what he told us.

It takes someone with a particular psychological profile to kill and exploit people. See 'Why Violence?' Most of us cannot kill: we respond to our conscience or feelings such as empathy, sympathy, compassion or even the fear of our guilt or shame if we know our actions will cause harm to others. What happened to Barack Obama that makes him so violent? Let us analyse what he told us now.

In his book Obama describes his childhood. This includes, for example, explicit reference to his violent maternal grandfather as well as key behavioural descriptions of himself in contexts that reveal his emotional state, even if this was, and still is, suppressed below his own conscious awareness. In essence, the book contains a largely delusional account of his early life, reflecting his effort to leave his past behind without dealing with the effects of the violence he suffered.

One incident he describes clearly reveals his justified but unexpressed fury at his father for abandoning him. Because this fury was suppressed, it left young Barack with a gaping hole in his sense of self-worth: he wasn't worthy of his father's time, attention and love. Moreover, because he was unable either to prevent his abandonment by his father (because his love, as a baby, for his father was insufficient to bond his father to him) or to express his feelings (which would usually include fear, pain and sadness in addition to his obvious anger) about this abandonment, he acquired a deep sense of powerlessness and a large measure of self-hatred too. However, given the extraordinary unpleasantness of these feelings and without support and preferably encouragement to feel them, he unconsciously suppressed his awareness of these as well. But they live in him still.


His book makes it clear that it was his mother who was primarily responsible for 'teaching' young Barack to suppress his awareness of his feelings. She didn't comprehend her child's need to feel the fear raised by his father's abandonment, to cry about it and to get angry about it (perhaps by having a series of 'tantrums') because listening to his feelings frightened her: listening might trigger equivalent feelings in herself (and, as a child, she had been scared into suppressing her awareness of her feelings too). So she scared the young Barack into not having these feelings by, for example, contradicting his perceptions of his father and offering justifications for his father's behaviour.

His mother didn't understand the enormous healing power of crying when you feel sad, of consciously feeling scared when something frightening happens to you and of expressing one's legitimate anger when one has been 'done over'. Barack had been abandoned! How would you feel? She didn't understand that evolution intended us to have feelings partly to guide us and partly as a 'safety release valve' so that we can move on from trauma to lead a productive and fulfilling life. Unfortunately, by suppressing his awareness of his feelings (even though the feelings themselves cannot be suppressed out of existence) throughout his childhood and in adult life, they became deeply embedded in his unconscious and play the major role in generating his now-warped behaviours without him even knowing it.

Another incident his book describes occurred after an older boy threw a rock at the young Barack; he powerlessly complained to his stepfather 'It wasn't fair'. This incident confirms that the boy had been terrorised into suppressing his awareness of his anger: the anger that evolution intended would tell him that this behaviour by his assailant was not just unfair - it was an unprovoked, outrageous and violent assault; the anger that would enable him to defend himself powerfully (primarily by showing his anger) against such assaults, thus reducing the likelihood of their repetition; and the anger that would also tell him how to change his behaviour in future so that such assaults were less likely. Why is this important?

Because the young Barack had already learned to suppress his justified fear of, and anger at, the abuse of people who were supposed to love him (particularly his father and mother) and of whom he was (unconsciously) terrified (such as his maternal grandfather), he learned to project his own terror, self-hatred and anger onto other people and groups of whom he is not actually afraid ('terrorists' in foreign countries, prisoners at Guantanamo, US citizens), and to use violence to control their behaviour instead. This enables him to regain his desired, but delusionary, sense of 'having control'.

Equally instructive is Obama's stepfather's response to this incident. Rather than listen to the young Barack's feelings about the attack, including its obvious injustice, so that he could rebuild his sense of self-esteem, develop his sense of personal power, and learn skills and develop capacities for dealing with conflict nonviolently, his stepfather explicitly taught him to use violence, by giving him boxing lessons, in 'self-defense'. As a result of this and other experience, Obama has a delusional belief in the effectiveness and morality of violence (perceived as 'self-defense') whenever it is used by the United States while believing hypocritically that it 'wasn't fair' when used by 'terrorists': he has no capacity to perceive the dysfunctional and immoral outcomes of using violence in any context.

Moreover, because the young Barack's suppressed anger was also warped by the fear and pain he experienced as a result of the violence he suffered as a child, he now acts vindictively towards people who have the courage to tell the truth, such as Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. Because he lacks the courage to act on the truth himself, and people such as Manning and Snowden expose the contradiction between how he wants to be perceived (both by himself and others), and how he actually is, he now inflicts unnecessary and/or excessive violence on those who have the courage to do what his own fear prevents him from doing. For Obama, the truth of Manning and Snowden is, literally, terrifying and he will go to great lengths to silence it.

In another incident during his life in Indonesia, Obama mentions his mother's generosity in giving money to beggars: a generosity which the young Barack copied despite 'the few coins' in his possession. However, his stepfather regarded this behaviour as 'endearing but silly': he encouraged the boy to ignore beggars and 'make sure you don't end up on the street yourself'. Given Obama's later work as a community organiser, in which he apparently displayed concern for those who were 'less fortunate', his subsequent behaviour as president, in which he has overseen the continuing impoverishment of working and middle class Americans, appears inconsistent. How can we account for this?

The adult Obama lacks integrity: his mind is not integrated in such a way that memories, thoughts, feelings and conscience function seamlessly to drive his behaviour in a consistent direction. And this is why he is such a useful tool of those corporate elites who selected him to govern the United States. Like most people who (unconsciously) feel unloved (an outcome of the fact that loving his father didn't gain him love in return), he now has the unconscious desire to please and to gain approval. And Obama wants this approval from his corporate masters (not merely American voters); it's not love but it's better than nothing. In turn, he has the pleasant face and oratory which they can use to both mask and 'sell' their ruthless exploitation of the people of America and elsewhere around the world, including when he must lie outright to do so (as he did when he denied that the NSA spies on US citizens).

Obama makes it clear that his mother wanted him to have 'values'. What his mother, like most parents, did not realize is that socially positive values are deeply anchored in certain emotions and that these emotions and the values they generate can only emerge as a result of childhood experience (not including lectures and admonishments from adults). The reason that the adult Obama has no conscience and feels little or no love, compassion, empathy and/or sympathy for the victims of his government's violence is simply the logical outcome of his own childhood which was largely devoid of genuine love, compassion, empathy and sympathy.

This is another reason why the adult Obama is so violent, both internationally and even domestically. As Obama oversees the increasing militarization of US society and the systematic dismantling of the social contract - the removal of centuries-old constitutional protections and the ongoing encroachments on human rights and civil liberties (including those which protected American citizens from arbitrary detention or execution by their own government), the dramatic expansion of poverty and homelessness, the spying on fellow Americans, the ongoing consolidation of predatory corporate governance - we are simply witnessing the logical outcome of the violence he suffered as a child.

At a personal level, we must understand why Barack Obama is violent and support him to find the courage to travel the journey of emotional healing because, like all perpetrators of violence, he was terrorised and brutalised as a child. At a political level, those of us committed to ending human violence must nonviolently resist his killing and his exploitation. There is a better world for all of us but violence by anyone, for any purpose - even when referred to as 'punishment' - cannot bring it forth.

Robert J. Burrowes has a lifetime commitment to understanding and
ending human violence. He has done extensive research since 1966 in an
effort to understand why human beings are violent and has been a
nonviolent activist since 1981. He is the author of 'Why Violence?

August 6, 1945: The age of nuclear terrorism
Today marks the sixth-eighth anniversary of the atomic terrorist strike against unarmed civilians by the United States of America in the city of Hiroshima, Japan, which along with the atomic strike against Nagasaki days later, was the most blatant violation of the basic principles of conduct during armed conflict.

August 6, 1945. The world's first atomic terrorist strike against a city full of unarmed civilians - the US Air Force dropped a bomb equivalent to 20,000 tonnes of TNT, nicknamed "Little Boy" from a B-29 Superfortress bomber, nicknamed "Enola Gay", after the pilot's mother.

"Little Boy", the nickname spelling out the callous disrespect the United States of America has shown for the its international partners over the years and which isolates it and its FUKUS Axis friends (France-UK-US) and NATO allies from the hearts and minds of the international community today, murdered tens of thousands of civilians - men, women and children alike, of all ages, hospitalized patients, the disabled, the bedridden, the mentally and physically incapacitated, whole families, their homes and their pets. It was the world's first atomic terrorist war crime.

Three days later, as if the first strike were not enough, the USA performed the world's second atomic terrorist act, using a bomb nicknamed "Fat Man", destroying the city of Nagasaki. August 9, around 11.a.m. local time, as children played happily in parks, going down slides, running around chasing balls with their family dogs, their mothers chatting and smiling proudly, the USA was about to unleash what could rightfully be called the worst war crime in the history of humankind. The few survivors screamed in horror as these women and children were literally roasted alive, their skins hanging from their faces as the fortunate ones died on the spot.

For those who are about to waste their time trying to justify these horrendous, monstrous, inhuman acts, as early as January 1945 the Japanese authorities were suing for peace offering these terms:

* Surrender of all Japanese forces and arms, at home, on island possessions, and in occupied countries;
* Occupation of Japan and its possessions by Allied troops under American direction.
* Japanese relinquishment of all territory seized during the war, as well as Manchuria, Korea and Taiwan.
* Regulation of Japanese industry to halt production of any weapons and other tools of war.
* Release of all prisoners of war and internees.
* Surrender of designated war criminals.

These were the terms that were accepted by the Americans after Nagasaki. Conclusion: both bombs and acts of mass murder were totally unnecessary and the whole exercise was nothing more or less than a massive show-off to the Soviet Union, which had destroyed 90% of Hitler's Wehrmacht and which was about to appear as a giant on the world stage.

Even then the cruelty of the United States of America did not end: on August 14, on the eve of the surrender and with Japan virtually defenceless, the USA sent a thousand-bomber raid over Tokyo to firebomb the capital city.

The subsequent massacres of civilians in Vietnam, the terrorism, sabotage, murder attempts and acts of murder across the globe, the subversion, arming of groups to interfere in the affairs of sovereign nations, the arming and support for dictators, fascist murderous repressive regimes, and more recently, covert or even open support for terrorist groups to destabilize governments are the sickening sequel to this dawning of the age of Satan.

Today, the USA and its allies continue to support terrorists in Libya and Syria and today, they issued warnings of attacks against their interests in several points of the globe. One wonders why.

North Korea has a special place in the propaganda system of the West. The country is presented as something that can be created with the development of leftist ideas. Not so many people know that North Korea makes fine cars, whereas the electronic industry and agriculture is far from being dilapidated. Who benefits from distorting the truth about real life in North Korea? Pravda.Ru asked this question to Alexander Zhebin, the Director of the Center for Korean Studies of the Institute of the Far East of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

"You are a famous scientist and the director of the Center for Korean Studies of the Institute of the Far East of the Russian Academy of Science. How do you perceive, for example, the news that well-known North Korean comedian Lee Chun-hong was exiled to a coal mine for her joke about the regime. Who creates such stories about North Korea and what for?

"Unfortunately, the Western press is filled with reports of various horrors taking place in North Korea, but they have no reliable sources that confirm these libels. Most often, the news is based on pieces of information allegedly received from those who fled the country to South Korea. The credibility of such reports is very weak, because every defector wants to win the favor of new authorities. The rumors that they spread, are, to put it mildly, exaggerated. In particular, the reports of executions, deaths and purges among the North Korean leadership are far from being true. For example, there were many rumors about sitting Prime Minister Pak Mo Joo. It was speculated that he had fallen out of favor and was sent off for re-education, etc. The same was happening to many other members of the North Korean leadership.

"Recently, there was a wild fantasy about a general, who was shot from a mortar. Anyone who is more or less familiar with military equipment knows that this is impossible to do. This entire campaign around the DPRK is well planned and is being conducted massively at different levels. It has one goal - to demonize the country and its leaders. After all, before attacking the country, one should take it beyond the moral categories of so-called universal values that are formulated in the West."

"So in the United States, they decide who should live in this world and how..."

"Of course, it is advantageous for the Americans to have a villain in the Far East - the North Korean regime. This regime does not meet Western standards of democracy and human rights, but those who have recently attended the events marking the 60th anniversary of the Korean War, could see with their own eyes that it was not the totalitarian monster that the West liked to write about so much.

"The Americans are doing it because it was awkward to name the new democratic Russia as the enemy in the Far East after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Even if they had done it, most people wouldn't have believed it. China is the largest trading partner of the United States and the second largest economic power, so this country did not seem to fit the role either.

"Therefore, the small country of North Korea turned out to be perfect for that. The country poses no serious threat to the Americans, but it can be pictured to the world as the worst of all evils. At the same time, there is a reason to continue to maintain forward-deployed forces along the Russian and Chinese borders, or deploy a missile defense system in the region."

"Is it possible to try to avoid military confrontation through negotiations?"

"Unfortunately, I do not see any prospects for reaching agreements between the U.S. and North Korea. America simply does not need them. Imagine for a moment that North Korea has accepted all American requirements and put down its weapons and missiles, thus minimizing all excuses to trumpet about the threats coming from Pyongyang. How will the U.S. administration and military lobby explain to their own Congress, the American people, the allies, and, most importantly, the Chinese and Russians, why there is a need to deploy missile defense and U.S. forces there?"

"So the Americans, despite decades of negotiations with North Korea, do not want any agreement with them. For them, the program is simple: keep North Korea in isolation as a rogue nation and create the necessary atmosphere in the UN and the international community in general.

The maximum program for the U.S. is to try to put the squeeze on the regime through economic sanctions and economic blockade. Most of these measures were introduced by the United States unilaterally in violation of international law, although they groundlessly accuse North Korea of violating international law. To unite the Korean Peninsula under their dominance and reach the land border of China and Russia in Asia - these are the true goals of the U.S. strategy and the American expansion in Asia. It does not matter what system of government North Korea may have."


But the first comment is ...

Forget North Korea. Look at what is about to happen in Syria. 1. US, British, French, Saudi and United Arab Emirates will establish a no-fly zone over central and southern Syria, stretching from the Jordanian-Israeli borders up to and including Damascus. 2. The Israeli Air Force will provide these forces with air cover from Syrian air space. 3. A 40-kilometer deep military buffer zone will be drawn from the Jordanian-Israeli borders up to the southern and western outskirts of Damascus. The military units controlling this zone will hold the entire area of the capital within artillery range. 4. The southern Syrian town of Deraa, where the Syrian uprising sprang up, will be declared capital of Liberated Syria. 5. President Obama has determined that there will no American troops in the buffer zone or anywhere else on Syrian soil, only special Syrian rebel forces. 6. Those forces will consist of 3,000 fighters trained in Jordan by US military instructors. They will be headed by Jordanian special forces and operate under US officers based in Jordan. 7. To host them, the US Army has just finished building in the Hashemite Kingdom a huge training camp and logistical system, debkafile’s military sources report. All the weapons and equipment required to train and arm the rebel force are already stacked there. 8. The American operational command center for the Syrian operation is already in place in Amman led by US Brig. Gen. John Wright, who at 57 is a veteran of the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. 9. The US air force units for imposing the no-fly zone over Syria are already in position at Middle East locations and ready to go at 36 hours’ notice. 10. A Druze unit trained by US military instructors will be a key component of the special rebel force. It was put up by the million-strong community which populates 120 villages and towns in the Jabal al-Druze area of southern Syria. They are situated in a commanding position overlooking the Syrian-Jordanian-Iraqi border triangle. 11. US forces deployed in the Middle East, especially in Jordan and Israel, will stand ready for possible reprisals against American, Israeli, Jordanian or Turkish targets, if ordered by Syrian President Bashar Assad in retaliation for the no-fly and buffer zones.
