Sighting. Why did you kill my family?

Man walks past a graffiti, denouncing strikes by U.S. drones in Yemen, painted on a wall in Sanaa

U.S. president Barrack Obama, the U.S. State Dept., Hollywood and the media are engulfed in a frenzied campaign to celebrate a movie made in Canada promoting the assassination of the leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea based on U.S.-style “freedom of expression.”

On Friday, December 19, Obama declared to the gullible that “we’ll respond proportionally, and we’ll respond in a place and time and manner that we choose.” He said that the unproven hacking of the Japanese Sony “entertainment” monopoly falls “outside the bounds of acceptable state behaviour.” The tools to hack the company are well known and in the public domain.

This Reuters photo shows a man walking past graffiti denouncing strikes by U.S. drones in Yemen, painted on a wall in Sanaa, Nov. 13, 2014. Yemeni authorities have paid out tens of thousands of dollars to victims of drone strikes using U.S.-supplied hush funds, a source close to Yemen’s presidency said, echoing accounts by legal sources and a family that lost two members in a 2012 raid.

U.S. drones have assassinated over 3,200 civilians in Pakistan. The USA has not declared war against either country. According to the criminal logic of Might is Right, that falls inside “the bounds of acceptable state behaviour.”

Graphic details: US State Department’s imperialist geography

Landlocked Belarus.jpg

In the event of a Belarusian invasion of Ukraine, the 6th US Fleet will immediately be deployed to the shores of Belarus.

By TONY SEED

It is all too reminiscent of former prime minister Jean Chrétien trying to convince the Canadians in 2001 that the deployment of the Canadian navy to the Indian Ocean as part of the Anglo-American invasion of landlocked Afghanistan was done to fight the Taliban. And like current Canadian foreign affairs minister John Baird, who thinks the capital of Syria is Washington, U.S. Secretary of State Spokesperson Jen Psaki reveals a certain gap of knowledge in her warmongering.
