That's USA, welcome to the "freedom"

Iraq Veterans Against the War ( is advocacy group of veterans and active-duty US military personnel who have served in the U.S. Military since September 11, 2001. Currently IVAW has over 1,400 members in fifty states, as well as in Canada, Europe, Iraq and Afghanistan. The following is IVAW's statement regarding the police attack of its member:

Late last night, Scott Olsen, a former Marine, two-time Iraq war veteran, and member of Iraq Veterans Against the War, sustained a skull fracture after being shot in the head with a police projectile while peacefully participating in an Occupy Oakland march. He remains unconscious in critical condition at Oakland's Highland Hospital.

Olsen was hit at close range. After demonstrators rush to Olsen's aid, an Oakland cop waits a few beats before lobbing a second tear-gas canister at the crowd. They are attending to Olsen when the canister explodes, sending smoke everywhere.

Olsen is one of an increasing number of war veterans who are participating in America’s growing Occupy movement. “Scott was marching with the 99% because he felt corporations and banks had too much control over our government, and that they weren’t being held accountable for their role in the economic downturn, which caused so many people to lose their jobs and their homes,” Said Keith Shannon, who deployed with Scott to Iraq.




参加全国性占领运动的的退伍军人越来越多,欧森就是他们中的一员。他昔日在伊拉克的战友开斯·先诺说: "斯高特之所以站出来和99%一起游行,是因为他觉得金融寡头对政府的控制太强大了,那些人的所作所为导致了无数人失去工作和房产,而他们却可以完全不必对此负责。P

they will call "The Occupy Movement" protesters here terrorists, thugs, and mobs. But the same people in the OIL countries are heralded as Freedom fighters. Just saw this morning a vid with that slimey, S.C. senator Lindsey Graham, gleefully commenting on Gaddaffi's murder saying " There's a lot of money to be made and oil to pump", what a disgusting person. That is the only reason we are there, OIL, OIL, OIL

他们把占领运动的参加者叫做恐怖分子、痞子、暴徒。但当同样的示威者出现在产油国时,他们就被称做自由斗士。今天早上刚看到那个临私·戈染墓议员关于卡达非之死的欣喜若狂的评论:“那里有很多石油啊,我们可以在那儿发财啦。” 无耻之尤!这就是我们的军队跑到那儿去的真正理由:石油、石油、石油。

It's a joke. The establishment encourages the middle eastern uprisings so they can put in their puppet democracies while they suppress uprisings at home because they already own the government. They gotta maintain the status quo in the west.



Agreed. Except for the part where you said the US puts up puppet democracies. I don't know of a single middle eastern country that even resembles a democracy after 1 year of the "US selected ruler" has been in power. It always spirals down into a dictatorship, where the leader is dictated to by the US, who interns oppresses and dictates over the people.



You're probably right but I get the feeling they really do want democracies because since politicians can be so easily bought they're a lot easier to control and with the facade of freedom the the public stay apathetic.
