The term blowback, “refers to the unintended results of American actions abroad. In this incisive and controversial book, Chalmers Johnson lays out in vivid detail the dangers faced by our overextended empire, which insists on projecting its military power to every corner of the earth and using American capital and markets to force global economic integration on its own terms. From a case of rape by U.S. servicemen in Okinawa to our role in Asia’s financial crisis, from our early support for Saddam Hussein to our conduct in the Balkans, Johnson reveals the ways in which our misguided policies are planting the seeds of future disaster.”

The name for what happened in Libya is
“CIA internal coinage denoting the unintended, harmful consequences—to friendly populations and military forces—when a given weapon is carelessly used. Examples include anti-Western religious fanatics who, in due course, attack foe and sponsor; right-wing counter-revolutionaries who sell drugs to their sponsor’s civil populace”. Wikipedia

David (UK): "It’s a good day to bury bad news". For the BBC and other British media, it’s the normal proceedure. Is the UN "Watcher for Human Rights Abusers Chief" in Myanmar to observe the 100,000’s of abused human beings?, no, he’s in Turkey looking at Assads victims. The Royal couple,on their Royal Passage in Asia, are in Malasia, building up their caring credentials, by talking to a boy with leukimea. Exploitation with a good presentation. "In the event that I am re-incarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve over-population." PRINCE PHILLIP. Reported by Deutsch Press. Agentur (DPA) Aug. 1998. (I’m sure he would’nt infect close family members, would he?) How long did it take for the government to admit that 13 unarmed civilians in Londonderry on "Bloody Sunday". It would look, at first glance, that the only concern they have, is money, mybe it is. But I think that they just dont care.!!!

David (UK): Just watched Dean Pucket’s "Elephant in the Room". The 9/11, 1st responders are interviewed, and they sound like they have survived a "Dieppe Moment". They are suffering from fatal wounds, recieved at the time, and have been forced to look at the circumstances surrounding the scene of the crime. The overall impression, that they give, is that then, and now, they are expendable, abandoned, and invisable. Dont think you’ll be seeing this one on RT either.!!!

Sorry to go off-topic but the Main BBC News - in the hope that the issue will go away - has just warned the Hillsborough families that they should take their time when considering any legal action. Surely the families will reject this BS?

Someone on the Press TV website said, if obama “is so concerned about embassy security and sanctity, where was he when the British govt. threatened to storm the Ecuadorian embassy? Hypocrite!”

David (UK): Whatever the motives or objectives of the Dieppe "experiment" were, the organisers MUST have known what the outcome would be. The difference between the Slapton Sands tragedy and the Dieppe massacre, is that while the soldiers involved at Slapton knew there was no real objective, it was only a game, the Canadians where genuinely trying to liberate France. I was minded of Henry V’s speech and had another wee look. "Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more: Or close the wall up with our ENGLISH dead." He went on to say, "From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remembered; We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me, Shall be my brother be ne’re so vile..." Henry went to great pains to insist that he, and his men were not there for any gain, indeed that would have been a sin, they were asked to give their lives for honour alone. At least the thief had the decency to be present at the scence of the crime, and ran the same risks. Today H.M.’s soldiers are hold its honourable to protect the "Crown’s" (City) interests in the Uranium deposites in Hellmand. Same old lie, "Dulci et decorum est pro patria mori." (Wilfred Owen).!!!

David (UK): A lot of people in Libya will remember what it was really like under Gadaffi, and his plans for Libya, and as time goes by they’ll start to miss the things they use to have, and took for granted and will never see again. The trouble has just started, but the US lackies will keep the oil flowing. The trouble in Afganistan started with the Talibans refusal to agree with the Caspian Sea oil pipeline planned to run through the country. Consider what Arthur Schesinger said in "The Council of Foreign Affairs Journal", "Unelected private bankers actually control the governments of the world and have financed and profited from all the wars since the first World War and the establishment of the Federal Reserve.The wars in Afganistan, Iraq and Libya is an attempt by the Federal Reserve, and their partner the Bank of England to control the Middle East and to make it part of "The New World Order"." Schlesinger went on to say, "To defend the NWO (Banksters), US soldiers (and their allies) will have to kill and die.!!!

David (UK): You can only report if your given an outlet. Most, if not all, outlets of "influential" news are tightly controlled. We all know what is happening in Syria, however its reported. "Operation Ajax" on Iran, in 1953, was the same blueprint and was a success, at least until the Islamic Revolution. We know tat British/Persian, also known as British Petrolium is the same leopard, with the same spots. Heard anything of whats going on right now in Myanmar (Burma)? I saw a "fringe media" report, cant remember who the reporter was, but the scences where horrific. Ethnic cleasing, genocide and widespread human rights abuses. No dought our "Internation Community" leaders have their eye on the countries resources to notice.!!!

"US ambassador, consul among 4 killed in militia attack on Benghazi consulate" RT

So, having spent years trying get rid of “Madman” Gaddafi, the US are now paying the price. Did not the CIA have a name for it?
