Stephen Lendman: My Veterans Today editors are WRONG on Libya!

Truth Jihad Radio Wed. 8/31/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Peymon Mottahedeh, Steven Vincent & guest.

Second hour: Stephen Lendman responds to Jim Dean and Gordon Duff, the Veterans Today editors who, almost alone among real alternative media folks, support the Libyan rebels and despise Qaddafi. (Listen to Jim Dean interview on Monday’s Truth Jihad Radio.)

One of the things I like about Veterans Today is their willingness to publish views they don’t agree with, including Stephen Lendman’s work on Libya.

Steve writes:

…the business of America is war, permanent war against humanity by military, financial, political and other means.

As a result, terrorizing and destroying the Libya that was continues, focused heavily on what’s called Gaddafi loyalists’ last stronghold.

No matter the death, destruction and human misery already caused.

Or that Tripoli residents are now terrorized by a continuing bloodbath. Anyone believed to be pro-Gaddafi is under threat of death.

No matter also that Sirte, a city of 100,000, is being terror bombed relentlessly, perhaps intending to turn it to rubble. It wouldn’t be the first time Washington and its Western allies did it. (full article)

And speaking of Veterans Today, the VT crew and I were recently honored by the Defamation League, which regularly issues awards, in the form of defamatory attacks, for outstanding service on behalf of the American, Palestinian and Muslim people, international law, and basic justice and decency. (When the Defamation League defames you, it’s a very high honor indeed!) To get a sense of where the Defamation League is coming from, watch the stunningly brilliant Israeli film “Defamation.” Norman Finkelstein steals the show, crackling with the electricity of the true prophetic spirit. If Judaism is the religion of the great Hebrew prophets, Finkelstein is the real deal, while Abe Foxman is more in the line of the scumbags and hypocrites who harassed and killed the prophets. Indeed, Foxman with his ridiculous organization defames Judaism in just about everything he says and does. Even a rabid anti-Semite, nay, a drooling genocidal Nazi, could hardly dream up the kind of hideous caricature of the self-obsessed, greedy, groveling, fanatically tribal, unimaginably hypocritical, hilariously egotistical, brutally vengeful, eternally opportunistic, utterly unprincipled putz that Foxman embodies in his very essence.
