#BlackLivesMatter Jamarl Thomas at the Progressive Soap Box weighs in with an emotional and righteous condemnation of the setting free of the cop who murdered Philando Castille. Castille up fron in an open carry state told the cop he had a gun but the cop shot him . If he had been a white guy with a gun in an open carry state we know he would not be shot and if anything did happen the NRA and Gun Owners of America would be taking a fit. But not when its a Black person then in the USA it is OK to kill. Democrats and Republicans both support Gun rights and have no sympathy for those murdered by police or by citizens esp if the Killer is white and the victim is black. Even Pres. Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch never gave a damn about Blacks being killed except as part of a Stump speech to win some votes. The hypocrisy is outrageous and Jamarl Thomas has a right to be angry .

The Terrorist attack in Manchester and in Mali are blowback for what the West has done and is till doing in Iraq, Libya, Syria , Afghanistan etc. The West arms extremists as proxies to fight in other countries to bring about the West' agenda for regime change . The West invents a crisis in Libya or Syria or Ukraine and then uses it as an excuse for various forms of intervention either covert or overt and then when blowback occurs we act as if we are the innocent ones . So hundreds of thousands of dead in Iraq, Libya and Syria are of little interest to those in the West.
This article argues the case that the Manchester bombing and the Mali bombing stem from the same root which was created by Western politicians , the military, CIA etc. and the Neoliberal elite.

and so:

"...The jihadi attackers in Mali and the jihadi bomber in Manchester were direct products—not accidental by-products, but deliberately incubated protégés—of American-British-French-NATO regime change in Libya, a project that was executed by the Obama administration and spearheaded by Hillary Clinton.

Before the glorious revolution, Libya under Ghaddafi had the highest standard of living of any country in Africa, according to the UN Human Development Index. Before the jihadi onslaught backed by NATO bombing campaign, Ghaddafi’s Libya was an anchor of stability in North Africa, as even the U.S. and British governments knew and acknowledged, per a 2008 cable from American foreign service officer Christopher Stevens, published by Wikileaks:

Libya has been a strong partner in the war against terrorism and cooperation in liaison channels is excellent…Muammar al-Qadhafi’s criticism of Saudi Arabia for perceived support of Wahabi extremism, a source of continuing Libya-Saudi tension, reflects broader Libyan concern about the threat of extremism. Worried that fighters returning from Afghanistan and Iraq could destabilize the regime, the [government of Libya] has aggressive pursued operations to disrupt foreign fighter flows, including more stringent monitoring of air/land ports of entry, and blunt the ideological appeal of radical Islam.

The US-British-French-NATO humanitarian intervention put an end to that by overthrowing the Libyan government under entirely phony pretexts, in contravention of fundamental international law, and in violation of the UN resolution they claimed as a justification. The executioners and beneficiaries of that aggression where the jihadis who have been rampaging from Mali to Manchester. It’s a bright, clear line.

Ghaddafi himself warned Tony Blair that “an organization [the LIFG].has laid down sleeper cells in North Africa called the Al Qaeda organization in North Africa.” Ghaddafi’s son, Saif, warned that overthrowing Libya’s would make the country “the Somalia of North Africa, of the Mediterranean” and “You will see millions of illegal immigrants. The terror will be next door.” ...

Film about the Bahraini uprising which was crushed brutally by the Al-Kahlifah regime backed by the Saudis and USA and UK . The peaceful protesters who sought reforms so that Bahrain would be a more democractic , open and free societywere tear gassed , beaten, shot , tortured, and killed. And yet six years later the protests and demonstrations continue on an almost daily basis. Meanwhile the Western media and governments ignore these human rights violations and the desire of the people for a better society. Instead the West accepts the lies, fabrications and propaganda of the al-Kahlifa Regime. And still the oppression, the tear gassing, the massive arrests, the torture and other abuses continue.
It appears that this sort of oppression is just part of the Neoliberal /Neoconservative / globalist view of the world . But still like the horns in the video the people still are raising their voices.

Great article exposing how Obama's own Muslim Ban gave Trump a precedent to follow esp. since it is Obama who mentions the seven countries his administration was most worried about. Kudos to Jimmy Dore for bringing this article to our attention . What people should be protesting is not just a ban on Muslims but also the USA and NATO's on going bombing of Muslim countries without any regard to the death of the innocent or the chaos they are fomenting by killing so many.

If David Horowitz is representative of President Trump's advisers then the Middle East and the world are in real trouble. Horowitz is insisting that President Obama by signing a deal with Iran has betrayed Israel with " a Stab in the Back" and therefore President Trump must correct this by tearing up the agreement and basically declaring war on Iran. Is President Trump on board with this insane policy. Horowitz besides being a leading Islamophobe is fanatically pro-Israel and anti-Russia . Horowitz claims the Eastern European countries bordering on Russia are at imminent risk an Existential risk of being attacked by Russia. Horowitz wants to encourage President Trump to go to war with Russia, Syria, Iran possibly Turkey and maybe to top it all off with a war with China or India or both.
