Game plan

Naomi Klein discusses taking on the US...and winning:

"When Manuel Rozental got home one night last month, friends told him two strange men had been asking questions about him. In this close-knit indigenous community in south-west Colombia, ringed by soldiers, rightwing paramilitaries and leftwing guerrillas, strangers asking questions is never a good thing.

"The Association of Indigenous Councils of Northern Cauca, which leads a political movement that is independent from all those armed forces, decided that Rozental, its communications coordinator, had to get out of the country - fast. He had been instrumental in campaigns for agrarian reform and against a free-trade agreement with the United States, and the association was certain that those strangers had been sent to kill Rozental - but by whom? The US-backed national government, which notoriously uses rightwing paramilitaries to do its dirty work? Or the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (Farc), Latin America's oldest Marxist guerrilla army?"

America and its allies fear independence. Australia doesn't even know the meaning of the word anymore.

I conducted an informal poll and couldn't find a single adult Australian who doesn't know the meaning of anymore.

If the indigs don't want liberation then they are obviously Anti-American. We as the Land of the Free and Home of The Brave are entitled to our life style. Either the indigs are with us or we are just gonna Falluga the place.

JF, that's piss weak.

I know you have opinions beyond that - what do you have to say about the content of the post?
