US ranked among worst countries to raise a family, study says

Exposing the Big Game

[People seem to be forgetting that for every human child they bring into this world, another species has to suffer and go extinct. They should have to ask themselves: Which species am I willing to extinguish in order to bring another human life onto this once-vibrant planet? All other species have offspring as an instinctual evolutionary directive, sort of like eating, pooping, drinking or sleeping. Humans “pride” themselves as being “above” the other animals in all the rest of their behaviors, so why don’t they use their big brains in the case of procreating and (over)populating?]

When First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage during the first night of the Democratic National Convention, she talked about how it felt to be a black woman waking up in the White House every morning—a building constructed with slave labor.

During World War II, the Army had become the nation’s largest minority employer. Of the 2.5 million African Americans males who registered for the draft through December 31, 1945, more than one million were inducted into the armed forces.

“…By a geographical coincidence, Burma allows the passage across its territory of the pipe-line linking Chinese Yunnan to the Bay of Bengal, and houses the Chinese electronic surveillance posts for the naval routes which near its coasts. Making war in Burma is therefore more important for the Pentagon than blocking the two « Silk Roads » in the Middle East and Ukraine. An inheritance of British colonisation,”

You are probably aware that you are incompletely informed about what is brewing in Myanmar, and you probably haven’t heard about the military coalition that is preparing to attack that country. And yet, as Thierry Meyssan reveals here, these current events have been in preparation by Riyadh and Washington since 2013. Don’t take sides before you read this article and digest the information.
