Eugene Debs & Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Image
Note: US presidential candidate of Socialist Party of America, Eugene V. Debs, was America’s most prominent socialist; running for the Presidency of the United States, under the banner of the Socialist Party five times in 1900, 1904, 1908, 1912, and 1920 - the last, ran entirely from his prison cell in Atlanta, Georgia – imprisoned on the grounds of “treason” for speaking out against American involvement in World War I.

Debs sought the Presidency of the United States a fifth time from his prison cell in Atlanta, Georgia. Though allowed only one press release per week, Debs still received 913,693 votes. He would be released, but not pardoned in 1921. Debs was admitted to an Illinois sanatorium and died months later on October 26, 1926 of heart failure.

PAC DID NOT LOSE THE OPPORTUNITY, CALLED SPADE, A SPADE

Note:Apropos "BJP's lost opportunity", Business Standard, instead of appreciating the fact that stark facts were made starker for the benefit of the public, strangely A K Bhattacharya (AKB) is quite blatantly suggesting that veteran opposition MP and Chairman of Public Accounts Committee (PAC) should have diluted its report to provide some face saving space to Congress and DMK (besides SP and BSP). It is amusing to note that he has endorsed mild words used in ruling party MP headed Joint Parliamentary Committee’s report on the securities scam wherein Dr Manmohan Singh was termed a “sleeping finance minister”.

It is such mildness in the manner of Parliamentary Committees that allowed P Chidambaram and Dr Singh yet again to sleep over their acts of omission and commission. One reads AKB quite avidly but one cannot agree with AKB at all in this matter. The facts are quite glaring PAC DID NOT LOSE THE OPPORTUNITY, IT SERVED ITS PURPOSE, IT TERMED SPADE, A SPADE. It was not …

Chomsky & Obama on Targetted Assassination of Osama, Founder & Leader, al-Qaeda

Image
Note:Targeted assassination attempt by the Government of USA led to the death of Osama Bin Laden, Founder & Leader, al-Qaeda on May 2, 2011. Present and future generations will always ask the Government of USA and its current leader Barack Obama as to why was Osama not arrested and put on trial to underline the events, ideas and policies that led to the emergence of al-Qaeda, a violent political network. Obama like his predecessors remains an admirer of Mahatma Gandhi.

In recent years, the landscape of global politics has been shaped by the conflict between Soviet Communism, Protestant Christian and Jew inspired US Capitalism Arabic Islam and Communist China's capitalist experiments.

George W Bush administration had argued there were ties between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda, warning the dictator might supply the terrorists with weapons of mass destruction. The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States—also known as the 9/11 Commission—however, concluded …
