Noam Chomsky recently lashed out at U.S. pressure against countries - namely Iran and Syria - as a way to "punish disobedience." Chomsky, told an audience of more than 1,000 at the American University of Beirut that the United States had an "interest to punish disobedience" and any "challenge of (its) authority." He said countries like Syria and Iran were facing pressure because they achieved successful defiance of U.S. foreign policy and were not following U.S. orders.

So might the U.S. be feeding WikiLeaks with dis-information, and making Julian Assange the fool-guy? Then again, far from helping anyone understand what is going on, the main impact of the “leaks” has been to undermine the Syrian Government. At a time when the U.S. are looking for any “reason” to attack Syria, can anyone understand why Wikileaks are doing this?

But would not a TRUE Independence Day be a really happy event?
Yes Yes. Thats what its all about. Got to get passed the FLORIDATED HILL BILLYS FIRST. We are also a Colony of the "City of London" or "Crown". It sits in the center of London, an Independant Sovereign State not reigned on by Her Majesty or subject to British Law. A bit like the Vatican City, but financial, rather than religious. But try telling that to the "SHEEPLE".!!! July 5, 2012, 14:30
CHOMSKY TAVISTOCK AND TARIQ MUST READ MORE!!!2008: The US State Department begins training, funding, networking, and equipping “activists” through its “Alliance for Youth Movements” where the future protest leaders of the “Arab Spring,” including Egypt’s “April 6 Movement” were brought to New York, London, and Mexico, before being trained by US-funded CANVAS in Serbia, and then returning home to begin preparations for 2011!

A thought for "Independance" day. Quote. "We must go forward cautiously and consolidate each acquired position, because already the INFERIOR STRATUM of society is giving increasing signs of agitation." "Let us make use of the courts...when through the Laws intervention, the COMMON PEOPLE shall have lost their homes, they will be more easy to govern and they shall not be able to resist the strong hand of the government acting in accordance with...the CONTROL OF THE LEADERS OF FINANCE." U.S. Bankers Magazine. 1892. (Not read it yet, ahh well, Have a nice day anyway.!!!

Chomsky has the wonderful knack of - even though often discussing depressing realities and seemingly hopelessness at length - creating such a sense of hope and optimism in his talks, that makes one believe, perhaps, a better future for all is achievable however bleak the present may be.

Great remark, about a great person, does it not deserve repeating?

As for Julian Assange, in terms of the standard of debate and he range of issues, the remark about Cuba and banning the press seemed a little needless. What was his real point?
