What Canada knew about Libya. A Salute to the Equality of the Human Race. Ramsey Clark Reports on Recent Trip to Damascus and the US Directed Terrorism Across the Region.
Stephen Gowans, John Carlos, Ramsey Clark
Gowans refers to an article by David Pugliese who obtained Canadian intelligence documents about Libya. In 2011, Canadian intelligence services understood that Libya's opposition was dominated by fundamentalists and extremists, and that intervention would likely create chaos. The Canadian government chose to create chaos.
Learn the story of how Canada became "Al Qaeda's air force," as Gowans traces Canada's contribution to Libya's destruction. NATO hopes that Libya will serve as a 'lesson' for Syria: do what we say, or we'll keep the Al-Qaeda spigot turned on.
At the 1968 Olympic award ceremony, John Carlos and Tommie Smith each held up a fist with a black glove to indicate America's epic struggle against racism. They were supported by Peter Norman, a white Australian advocate for global human rights who won the silver medal and who heroically wore the Olympic Project for Human Rights (OPHR) badge during the award ceremony.
Carlos said that they were ready to give society a shock treatment. It was not just the moment of the the time, but the MOVEMENT of the time. It was an Olympic Project for human rights. It was a step for freedom for the generations to come.
Ramsey Clark is the Founder of the International Action Center (IAC), former US Attorney General, political analyst and human rights advocate. In his most recent visit to Damascus, Ramsey Clark found conditions there almost normal, despite fighting in the countryside, and was impressed that Syria maintains a stable government.
The struggle against violent intrusion from outside the country has a long way to go. Clark explains that the US-dominated West’s goal in the region is to weaken countries to the degree they can no longer govern themselves, and the people are left with the primitive struggle for survival, as happened with Libya and Iraq.

Ramsey Clark's visit to Syria. Why I am protesting Paul Kagame
Ramsey Clark, Theogene Rudasingwa
Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who has recently returned from Syria, recounts his meeting with President Assad, and the new peace initiatives in the region.
Clark reviews the disastrous record of recent U.S. military interventions and regime change. The United States has made Assad's presidency into a foreign policy issue. But Assad should not live or die based on the whims of the U.S.
Theogene Rudasingwa, once the executive assistant of President Paul Kagame, and secretary-general of the RPF, explains why he and many others are protesting Kagame's visit to Toronto.
He also discusses the continuing Rwandan military presence in Eastern Congo, and the central motivation of President Kagame and his ruling circle.

Dynamic news from Syria. Ramsey Clark - It's Time to Oppose War on Syria
Mahdi Nazemroaya, Ramsey Clark
Back from Beirut, Mahdi Nazemroaya, newly the author of "The Globalization of NATO," reports on the regional conflict engulfing Syria. The Syrian government surprised the great powers by surviving the onslaught of the Gulf monarchies and NATO. "The only reason it surprised them was because of their imperial arrogance," comments Nazemroaya.
From the very beginning, the "rebels" have been looking for every excuse for intervention - in a war that is already a foreign intervention. Why do they fight? Mostly crass economic opportunity, but many have been brainwashed by clerics from the Gulf states. A few have already repented.
"We can see where every country stands" when it comes to Syria. How do Arabs feel? Does France have the right to determine Syria's destiny? Which of the Gulf dictatorships will lead the war for democracy? Don't expect to hear anything from Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch. Their salaries don't come from Syria.
In Egypt, Morsi was calling for a "no-fly-zone." Now, Egyptians are calling for a "No Morsi Zone." It reminds one of Erdogan. They have sown the wind. Who will reap the whirlwind?
The peace movement is stirring from its slumber in the United States and Canada. Various coalitions have called for a week of action on Obama's escalating intervention in Syria. Why has Obama invested so much in this mercenary war?
"It seems to me to be the same strategy we've had with all the Arab and Muslim countries that we've undermined," says Clark, referring to the continuous slow destruction of Iraq and other countries. Now it's Syria's turn.
One rationale put forward for U.S. intervention in Syria is that of Hezbollah involvement and their alleged violation of international law. That's rich.
Also, what are they doing to the Voting Rights Act? Is there any politician capable of maintaining basic rights for American citizens?

Ramsey Clark, Itah Sadu, Robin Philpot
Ramsey Clark, former US Attorney-General and leading opponent of the US war on Iraq, speaks about his work on the Saddam Hussein defence team. "This isn't a trial in any true sense. This is a creation of the United States - it still occupies, it still controls. The people with power, with guns are still US. The United States has financed the whole thing to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars ... they've selected, trained the judges, they try to tell them what to do." Clark stated that Hussein is "being tried by people who have participated in a war of aggression, which is, according to the Nuremburg judgement ... the supreme international crime." Clark also reminiscences about his work with Martin Luther King.
Itah Sadu, of "A Different Book List", talks to Phil about a presentation to the Metro Toronto reference library to urge that the black and Caribbean collection be named in honour of Dr. Rita Cox. Rita Cox was an accomplished storyteller, and founder of important community institutions such as the Parkdale Information Centre and Parkdale Reads, as well as being the originator and builder of the collection. Itah Sadu is part of a committee making the presentation, fittingly on Martin Luther King Day, January 16.
Robin Philpot, author of "The Stolen Referendum" and "Rwanda 1994: Colonialism dies hard", published on-line by the Taylor Report, talks about his latest bombshell book "The Secrets of Option Canada" co-written with Quebec investigative journalist Norman Lester. Philpot describes the book's subject matter - "What you have here is a government-created slush fund to defeat a legitimate democratic political movement". Philpot and Lester reveal that millions of dollars was spent secretly and illegally to help the No side win the 1995 referendum. Pierre Pettigrew is one of numerous Liberal government operatives revealed to be implicated. The book has created a stir in Quebec and has led to the appointment of an inquiry.

Ramsey Clark, Zafar Bangash
Phil interviews Ramsey Clark, acclaimed former US Attorney General, who is a leading figure opposing US aggression against Yugoslavia and Iraq. Ramsey Clark is a key sponsor of “votetoimpeach.org” a campaign to impeach George W. Bush.
Phil and Ramsey talk about the US capture of Saddam Hussein, whether or not the US has the legal or moral authority to put him on trial, the historical background to trials for war crimes, and the very real war crimes committed by the US “shock and awe” policy that killed thousands of innocent civilians. Ramsey Clark addresses the “extremely urgent issue” of the US policy of developing tactical nuclear weapons.
Phil also interviews Zafar Bangash, the editor of Crescent International and “muslimedia.com”
Phil and Zafar talk about the conduct of US troops in Iraq, and France’s misguided attempt to bar women from wearing the hijab in schools.
Article Archive:Statement of Tiphaine Dickson, legal spokesperson of the International Committee to Defend Slobodan Milosevic. The Hague, March 14, 2006.
This press conference was initially planned last week, to present a request signed by well-known jurists, including the former Attorney General of the United States, Mr. Ramsey Clark, and prominent political figures, including a member of the Russian Duma, the Czech Parliament as well as the European Parliament, which was filed last Friday with the Security Council of the United Nations as well as the Appeals Chamber of the ICTY, to direct the latter institution to permit President Milosevic to receive the specialized medical treatment his well-known and longstanding medical condition required at the Bakoulev Center in Moscow.
It obviously pains me to have made this last trip to The Hague without any hope that Slobodan Milosevic’s health will ever be stabilized.
