I was deployed to Iraq 4x

I was deployed to Iraq 4x

5 of my friends are dead
1 of my friends is missing his arm
1 of my friends killed himself
I’ve been blown up 2x by roadside bombs
Hearing fireworks makes me nervous
I can’t sleep at night

All so bankers and war profiteers could get richer
I am the 99%


the other 99%

Thus, a brief overall picture. In the fully formed capitalist countries of the the region it’s burst out just as well as in other capitalist countries, e.g., in the Europe. Only if the masses in Europe are convinced by the bourgeois propaganda that their political regimes is the most progressive political hi-end, and if that happens that the demonstrators are killed, it is not so much (in past times they killed liberally, but the practice has shown that there is no urgent need, if you have the strength just to beat and intimidate), then the Arab capitalist countries have not yet matured to filigree functioning of repressive police apparatus (they have yet to learn, learn and learn). And the glaring disparity of political institutions to the declared democratic norms was the one that caught the eye in the first instance, which caused the greatest anger and which was a prime target for attacks. As a result the mass protests in Tunisia and the Egypt have not eliminated the regimes, as well as the protests in the EU — and do not aim for that — but have led to changing relations towards compliance with the standards of modern bourgeois democracy. For Tunisians and Egyptians (to a lesser extent, as it became clear that the country is actually ruled by the military junta) there is a hope that now in front of them will be drawn democratic performance «rotation of elites», according to the rules of the genre. Step is small, but nevertheless it is a step forward.
Any bourgeoisie (and the Western in particular), as well as specialists from its servicing institutions are pragmatic people. Their principle is: to decide exactly what to do in this situation to turn this situation to their advantage. Read the rest of this entry »

The above allows us to make rough comparative class analysis of latest developments in the region. We restrict our analysis to situations in Egypt and Libya. Read the rest of this entry »

Previously we have seen that the Libyan regime leaves a significant part of surplus value wrung from the workers at the disposal of the country, thereby reducing the extent of international exploitation which it is subjected. But riches something from this stored value to the country’s population, to the working classes, or, as in Russia, is devoured in three throats by corrupt rulling top?

Firstly, such devouring policy is a characteristic for the comprador bourgeoisie, comprador policy that is the optimal conditions for devouring (everybody is friend to you, everybody presents you iPods, and in the whole sometime give you permission to aproach to feeders to play with his toy cars… not for long… until parents do not come back). From the above analysis we saw that the Libyan regime is not comprador, and shows independence, which appears nasty for the West.

Secondly, there are actual data and evidences, even from sources that can hardly be suspected of sympathizing with Gaddafi, which indicate that part of the saved surplus value comes to people / workers in significant quantities. Read the rest of this entry »

Today and for a long, long time there is no such a country whose internal processes would be isolated from outer world. Systematic analysis of the situation requires to take in consideration all the forces which are involved. To crop the picture and to confine yourself to no more than country’s boundaries — it’s hypocrisy. With such croping you can easily overlook the whole octopus and leave in the field of vision only the tip of the tentacle, the strongest could appear as a weaker, and the one who is devouring and the one who is devoured may be swapped.

You can see in the Table 1 some important economic characteristics of countries in the region (Libya and its surroundings). The data are taken from the politically committed source (The CIA’s World Factbook) [1], from what our analysis will only gain, because it removes the possible accusations in pro-Gaddafi’s or other such bias.

In recent days, the battle to stop the destruction of the forest in the Moscow suburb of Khimki has heated up. Activists have been protesting the building of an $8 million high speed toll highway between Moscow and Petersburg. This highway would destroy beautiful forestland around Moscow. Environmentalists say the highway can bypass the old oak forest.

There is no such holiday now. But there is people on the steets. And many. Euronews (and so on) always takes a high interest in mass people’s actions everywhere (in Iran, in Moldavia, in GDR etc., even in Russia – of course when it concerns western capitalism oriented ‘opposition’), and sees no the people here (7.11.2009). Hmm… May be they all are invisible, indeed? Let’s see.
