\"Occupy Wall Street\" - similar to what happened in East Germany
On November 4, 1989, in still communist East Germany, \"reformist\" functionaries of the communist party, communist artists, actors, authors and other activists created a huge demonstration in Berlin to canalize the restlessness into a reformist movement to save the system. The \"Occupy Wall Street\"-movement (OWS) is similar to the East German attempts to prevent the fall of the ruling classes.
Libya was more heavily bombed than Pakistan
President Obama will tell you that America’s involvement in the Libyan conflict does not constitute an act of war. In the meantime, however, drones (unmanned battle planes) have conducted nearly triple the amount of airstrikes in Libya than they have in Pakistan, despite lacking congressional approval.

Canada: Warning about crime is "racist"
Grand Chief Derek Nepinak admits that a "handful" of first-nation individuals are causing problems, but still "It's entirely inappropriate for one of Canada's largest corporations to link the presence of our people in the downtown core with any security risk", calling an internal Air Canada memo racist.
USA: Michelle Obama's expensive vacations cause embarassment
Michelle Obama’s grand tour of southern Africa earlier this year cost American taxpayers nearly half a million dollars – and that's just for the flights. This follows in the wake of claims this August from sources inside the White House itself that the First Lady may have spent “$10 million of taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year.”

US troops deployed in Uganda, D.R.Kongo, Sudan, CAF

U.S. troops have been deploying in central Africa to help the forces of Uganda and other nations fight the Lord’s Resistance Army (L. R.A.). 100 troops are landing in Uganda and from there may deploy to the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and southern Sudan.

The U.S. troops are combat-ready and have instructions to fight if attacked, but Pentagon spokesman Captain John Kirby said the U.S. troops’ mission is limited to helping Ugandan soldiers and the armies of other nations stamp out the L.R.A.

“The mission for these 100 or so special operations forces is really just advise and assist, and help train local forces to deal with that threat. That is the scope of what they’ are going to be doing. That is the limit to what they are going to be doing,” said Kirby.
