Christmas Card Video

Please send this Christmas Card to others:


Santa claus Christmas card video
I just made the graphic into a card:
A message from Santa Claus ... STOP these WARS! And why wouldn't he say that? The wars are wrong. If you have the power and the celebrity of Santa Claus and you know something's wrong, why wouldn't you speak out against it? Makes sense to me. Use your influence to put an end to an injustice.

How many people think this war is right? All the needless killing, all the needless suffering, all the waste. Why did the United States attack Afghanistan? Because the Taliban refused to extradite Osama bin Laden? That's not an excuse to attack a country and kill all these civilians. There are other countries - the United States refuses to extradite terrorists.

"Right now the US is refusing to extradite to Venezuela Luis Posada Carriles who's one of the leading - most notorious terrorists in the world." - Chomsky

Also, look what actually did work: police work. It wasn't war that apprehended the mastermind of the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, it was police work. It wasn't war that apprehended the mastermind of 9/11, it was police work. And trying to use war? That is an example of it NOT working, Osama bin Laden got away.

Chomsky Birthday & Power and Terror: Israel Kills Civilians with U.S. Helicopters

SEE VIDEO: Chomsky Birthday & Power and Terror: Israel Kills Civilians with U.S. Helicopters
"On October 3, the defense correspondent of Israel’s leading journal, Ha’aretz, reported the largest purchase of U.S. military helicopters in a decade: Blackhawks and parts for Apache attack helicopters sent a few weeks earlier. On October 4, Jane's Defence Weekly, the world’s most prominent military journal, reported that the Clinton Administration had approved a request for new Apache attack helicopters, the most advanced in the U.S. arsenal, having decided, apparently, that the upgrades were not sufficient for the current needs of attacking the civilian population. The same day, the U.S. press reported that Apaches were attacking apartment complexes with rockets at Netzarim. The German press agency quoted Pentagon officials who said that "U.S. weapons sales do not carry a stipulation that the weapons can’t be used against civilians. We cannot second-guess an Israeli commander who calls in helicopter gunships.""

30 Minutes of Bonus Footage Noam Chomsky was born in Philadelphia on December 7, 1928 which makes him 81 years old today. "Chomsky gave us hope that if we just organize and act, there's hope. That's wonderful. I feel better than I've felt for months." - woman from the movie "Power and Terror, Noam Chomsky In Our Times" http://representativepress.blogspot.com/2009/12/chomsky-birthday-power-and-terror.html From Chomsky's article (see link below) "The late 2000 confrontations began on September 29, when Israeli troops killed several people and wounded over 100 as they left the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem after Friday prayers." http://www.chomsky.info/articles/200104--.htm
