BREAKING: Long-Awaited Chilcot Report Shows US & UK Had No Reason to Invade Iraq:

(Claire Bernish)

In a damning commentary on the rush to invade Iraq, Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry found “diplomatic options had not” at the time “been exhausted. Military action was therefore not a last resort — as then Prime Minister Tony Blair led the people of the U.K. to believe.

While the Chilcot Report proffers scathing insight into the circumstances surrounding the U.K.’s part in one of the most contentious invasions of a sovereign state in modern times, findings dually skewer then U.S. President George W. Bush’s reckless rush to force military action.

“Military action might have been necessary later,” the BBC summarized several key points found by the Inquiry, “but in March 2003: There was no imminent threat from Saddam Hussein; The strategy of containment could have been adapted and continued for some time; The majority of the Security Council supported continuing UN inspections and monitoring.

Is War Criminal Fever Contagious, or Something?

They Lied about Iraq and Libya: Do You Trust Them Now About Russia?

(Robert Parry) A British parliamentary inquiry into the Libyan fiasco has reported what should have been apparent from the start in 2011 – and was to some of us – that the West’s military intervention to “protect” civilians in Benghazi was a cover for what became another disastrous “regime change” operation.

The report from the U.K.’s Foreign Affairs Committee confirms that the U.S. and other Western governments exaggerated the human rights threat posed by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and then quickly morphed the “humanitarian” mission into a military invasion that overthrew and killed Gaddafi, leaving behind political and social chaos.

The report’s significance is that it shows how little was learned from the Iraq War fiasco in which George W. Bush’s administration hyped and falsified intelligence to justify invading Iraq and killing its leader, Saddam Hussein. In both cases, U.K. leaders tagged along and the West’s mainstream news media mostly served as unprofessional propaganda conduits, not as diligent watchdogs for the public.

Today, we are seeing an even more dangerous repetition of this pattern: demonizing Russian President Vladimir Putin, destabilizing the Russian economy and pressing for “regime change” in Moscow. Amid the latest propaganda orgy against Putin, virtually no one in the mainstream is exercising any restraint or finding any cautionary lessons from the Iraqi and Libyan examples.

My Commentary: Fux wrong with y’all? Y’all got war criminal fever, too?

Accept Hollywood White-Wash of History as Inconsequential, or Expose it as Dangerous?

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after they shared graphic art from here

Genaire:

"Gods of Egypt: Boycott this movie. Don't allow your children to watch this. This is a disrespect to you and your ancestors. Please share."

“Gods of Egypt: Boycott this movie. Don’t allow your children to watch this. This is a disrespect to you and your ancestors. Please share.”

Mike S.: What’s so bad about it?

Genaire: Ancient Egyptians were darker skinned. Not until they started dealing with the Greeks did they start to lighten up.

Zayvier B.: But we (blacks as a culture) took Annie, rewrote her black, and cheered. But if Egyptian Gods are played by inaccurate actors, it becomes an issue? I mean, honestly the Egyptian Gods didn’t have human forms, they were always Animals or Animal heads in human bodies, so why would it matter?

Genaire: The difference being, Zayvier, most children believe that this an accurate portrayal. Every movie detailing that region is portrayed inaccurately by design. If the powers that be could they would paint the whole world white.

Rayn: I actually have never seen a movie about ancient Israel or ancient Egypt that has been portrayed accurately. You look at Israel now and you would swear that the Europeans that are currently occupying that land are native to that region.

RaynZayvier, Little Orphan Annie is a work of pure fiction, based upon an almost century-old American comic strip. Ethnicity is completely irrelevant to the plot of the strip – only  Annie’s status as a poor, penniless orphan progresses the story-line, along with her signature mop of curly red hair. Meanwhile, Americans aren’t actually made up of just a single ethnic group, so that further makes ethnicity irrelevant to the story. Finally, there have already been many Annie movies made throughout the decades, with pale-skinned actresses all cast as the lead, so the originally-presented skin tone of Annie is well-established.

On the other hand, Gods of Egypt is a film about ancient Egyptian culture, and more specifically, ancient Egyptian royalty, ancient Egyptian deities, and ancient Egyptian citizens. Meanwhile, the cast is predominantly filled by pale-skinned Europeans, and the mortal hero of the movie, Bek, even had his hair DYED BLONDISH, for the role:

There are many who consider this to be yet ANOTHER round of “Hollywood white-washing” of Ancient Egyptian history:

Gods of Egypt – Racial and Ethnic Cleansing:

Hollywood has consistently treated Ancient Egyptian, and also Ancient Hebrew, culture to this sort of white-washing for at least half a century. (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)
