Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Obama Sends US Troops to Uganda

"While America occupies Iraq and Afghanistan, wages covert war on Pakistan, conducts drone attacks on Yemen and Somalia, bombards Libya, and positions for a wider confrontation with Iran and Syria, Nobel Peace Prize Laurette President Obama has now quietly, without much fanfare, sent 100 US troops to help Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni crush rebels threatening his 25 year dictatorship.

In what is essentially a "reverse-Libyan-style" intervention, the US is sending troops to crush, not assist rebels rising up against their despotic ruler. Ironically, just as with Libya's rebels, Uganda's rebels are also listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the US State Department. Instead of the corporate-financier contrived International Criminal Court issuing fictitious warrants for Uganda's head of state, as was done with Qaddafi in Libya, it is the Ugandan rebel leader, Joseph Kony, who is being targeted."

Absolutely nothing to do with this:

Fresh Uganda Oil Find ‘Africa’s Biggest’

And a tidbit in the news, available this morning but has been expunged this afternoon except in the foreign press:

US drone strike kills 15 Somali civilians

"A US drone strike has killed at least 15 civilians and injured dozens of others in the southern region of war-torn Somalia, Press TV reports.
The unmanned plane has left at least 15 people dead, while injuring at least 43 in the southern town of Bilis Qooqani near Afmadow.

This recent strike follows a similar strike in the same region on Friday, which killed at least 70 people.

Somalia is the sixth country where the United States military has used remote-controlled drone aircrafts to launch targeted operations and killings."

Hi Nolo:

Here is a very interesting take on what is going on in Libya...

This Morris fellow is practically the only news reporter that is trying to find out what is actually going on and I am very impressed with his efforts.

He's been very good, and has worked extremely hard to counter the incessant propaganda.

Hi Nolo:

Yes, hope he doesn't fly in any small airplanes. Did you see that link about how the "rebels" wiped out an entire community of black Libyans in a racist hit? Oh Obama!!!
