Refugees from Syria and other war-torn countries have a journey different from that of “the death boats”. The slideshow above shows the journey that refugees take while crossing European borders under harsh weather conditions.

The photos belong to Reuters from the Serbian – Macedonian borders (map below of refugees full route since the wave started).

Otpor: The support of global revolutions, even in Lebanon

by mkleit

The Revolution Business, 2011 – Consultants are helping people countries like Ukraine and Egypt build a foundation of knowledge in order to start revolutions.

Democratic change has been demanded across the Middle East. But was what seems like a spontaneous revolution actually a strategically planned event, fabricated by ‘revolution consultants’ long in advance?

Revolution consultants are the worst nightmare of every regime. Srdja Popovic was a founder of the organisation ‘Otpor’, a revolution training school. It was instrumental in the overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s and has now inspired a new generation of activists. Political commentators like William Engdahl are convinced Otpor is being financed by the USA. “The people from Otpor gave us a book in which they described all their strategies”, says Ezzedine Zaatour of the Tunisian uprising. That book was written by an American, Gene Sharp, and is now considered the “revolution guide book”, being used by opposition movements worldwide. As Optor release their latest gadget, a resistance training computer game sponsored by American organisations, world leaders are voicing their concerns. “This is called a gentle coup!”, insists Hugo Chavez.

Shocking Facts About Who’s Arming Human Rights Abusers [INFOGRAPHIC]

by mkleit

” Just six countries export a whopping 74 percent of the world’s weapons, with the US making up 35 percent of the global total. 

Treaties regulate the global trade of many products – evenbananas and dinosaur bones – but not guns and bullets. We need a strong Arms Trade Treaty that will stop tools of death from getting into the hands of people like Syria’s Assad and Sudan’s Bashir who continue to brutalize their people.

In July, UN member countries will debate the adoption of a global Arms Trade Treaty.  Take action to make sure they make the right decision— to keep weapons out of the wrong hands! ”

Some facts showing who’s arming human rights abusers as on http://blog.amnestyusa.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/ATT-Infographic-US-version.jpg

The insight is amazing, the facts are shocking, and the numbers are sorrowful.
From what I know, operations “Desert Storm” and “Desert Shield” were the most profitable processes for the US government and Russia as well (from what was obvious). Over 200 billion dollars were gained during the US invasion for Iraqi territory from military weapons sales to the Iraqis, Saddam’s militia, as well as, the Afghan war.

Now the biggest conflict is the return of the Cold War, but this time it’s between the US and Iran. The procedure that is being conducted is that Russia supports Iran with arms and gives her a boost in technology, while as the US has been arming most of the countries that it has bases in, such as KSA, Kuwait, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Turkey.

It just came to my mind as well, the Cold War was all about technological and weaponry rivalry between the US and the ex-Soviet Union. Asian countries were all sold Euro-US and Soviet weapons. And after the fall of the Soviet Union, US arms were being sold to trigger conflicts between the Russians and the people of the Sheena zone, as well as Serbia and Sarajevo.
Human Rights is just an abstract idea to satisfy the people’s need for having a free world, nothing much. See the paradox in seeing the Human Rights central offices in the US.
