GET REAL: TIBET IS PART OF CHINA

Posted in Comentario, Press TV by alvarezgalloso on julio 29, 2008

The Western Media still talks about Tibet and China as if both were separate countries. Before talking about this soc called Tibetan Issue, let us separate politics from sports. Politics and Sports are to be separated with the people participating in the Olympics with the objective of doing their best to win and have a good time. If a country does not win a medal in the Olympics, the most important thing is to enjoy the Olympics and to enjoy the venue.
The idea of Chinese Mistreatment of Tibet is all a misunderstanding concocted by the Western Mainstream Media as a response to being envious that an Asian Country such as China is hosting the Olympics. Whether the people want to accept the reality or not, Tibet has always been a part of China. There is one China and that is the People’s Republic of China. The People’s Republic of China extends from Central Asia and includes Taiwan and 300 miles of maritime territory after Taiwan. I have said this many times in the United States of America and in China.

According to the studies made by Dr. Hu Yan, the British invaded Tibet three times [1888, 1903, and 1904] in an attempt to separate Tibet from China. The purpose was to create a buffer state against China and Russia. Historical Papers that were released by the Hoover Institution, Stamford University, and the Soong Institute revealed the same subject in a telegram between Kuomintang Leader Chiang Kai Shek and his Finance Minister T.V. Soong. The telegram verbatim states the following which was dated the 21st of May 1943:
“Soong: Churchill [Prime Minister of Great Britain from 1940-1945 and 1951-1955] said that recently it has been alleged that China has concentrated troops in order to attack Tibet I replied that I have never heard of such a message.”
“And meanwhile, I said that Tibet is not an independent nation, as Churchill had claimed. All previous agreements between China and Britain have recognized that China possesses sovereign rights in Tibet, and I believe this fact has already been under your careful examination.”
Chiang replied with the following: “”By treating Tibet as an independent country, Churchill has denied the territorial integrity and sovereignty of our country. It’s a great insult. I did not expect Britain would make such a statement Tibet is part of China’s territory, and Tibetan affairs are China’s domestic affairs.”” This was the end of the telegraph.

Another article by Paul Mazza recounts how China introduced Buddhism to Tibet
and how Tibet has been an integral part of China for more than 700 years. Paul Mazza talks about how the British attempted to create a Foreign Bureau inside the so called Tibet and once forced the Thirteenth Dalai Lama to leave Lhasa. In fact, Tibet should be addressed as the Tibetan Autonomous Region. This effectively buries the lies of Hollywood and the Western Media who want to destabilize the Olympics.
The Beijing Olympics will be a success whether Hollywood and the Western Mainstream Media likes it or not. The Beijing Olympics will be a game that will be different from previous Olympics in that politics cannot harm any good will at this game. I want to reiterate my best desires for the People’s Republic of China, China Radio International, and the International Olympic Committee in creating what will be the Olympic Games that will be better than the ones that occurred in the twentieth century

Sheehan: US leaders abuse executive powers By Afshin Rattansi, Press TV,

Posted in Partido Verde/GP, Press TV by alvarezgalloso on julio 28, 2008

The following is Press TV’s exclusive interview with Cindy Sheehan, a US congressional candidate widely seen around the world as an anti-war movement leader.

Press TV: When you began your campaign soon after the Iraq war and of course, after your son’s death, you didn’t really have the support of the American people, how do you think the American people’s point of view about Iraq has been changed since you launched your campaign.

Sheehan: Since my son died, of course when Casey died, an overwhelming amount of Americans still approved of the war and still approved of George Bush and the time I have been doing my activism since he died and especially since august of 2005 when I was sitting in a ditch in Crawford Texas.

The shift in American opinion has shifted dramatically to being overwhelmingly now against the occupation of Iraq and against George Bush, he has a very low approval rating.

Congress’s approval rating is even lower is only 9 percent and today like you said they had the hearing on executive abuse of power without being able to say George Bush’s name, without being able to accuse him of any crimes or any lies.

They had this very weak hearing and of course we believe and I believe the American people are ready for some accountability, George Bush and Dick Cheney should be held accountable for the hundreds of thousands of deaths and the pain that they have caused in the world.

Press TV: Because of course you kind of bowed out last year, saying that you were exhausted and then you were running against Nancy Pelosi after the scooter Libby case? What role are you playing in all of this now?

Sheehan: Well, I really believe that even though the hearings were imperfect and they were very weak, I believe that my campaign which is picking up momentum and excitement in San Francisco was one of the reasons that Nancy Pelosi took the small baby step forward and said that the hearings and the House Judiciary Committee may happen.

There has been so many people working for impeachment, they have been lobbing John Coniers, they have been lobbying member of the House Judiciary Committee, they have been really working with Nancy Pelosi encouraging her to do this, but in the last few weeks or so my campaign, we’re getting money pouring in and we’re getting signatures pouring in to get me on the ballot and I think that happened because people in America are really disappointed with the lack of leadership in Congress to really take this country in a different direction.

In the past few weeks, congress has approved $163 billion more dollars for George Bush’s occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. They have given George Bush the permission to spy on Americans without getting a warrant and they have given the telecom companies immunity from breaking those FAISA laws that have been in place since 1978, and even more importantly, people like Karl Rove and Harriet Mayors and Josh Bolton are able to resist congress and not show up for petition.

I mean when they have been subpoenaed they do not show up, the congress won’t hold them in contempt, they won’t use their powers to have them physically brought in….

Press TV: Why would the Congress do that? There was so much hope wasn’t there? because people widely saw that the Democratic victory in Congress as being an anti-war vote, and yet the congress does not seem to be doing any thing about that, they voted for the surge and as you said they are not even doing anything about people failing to turn up after being subpoenaed.

Sheehan: Well, we do have some great testimony from people who are in Congress right now; I don’t blame the entire Democratic Party for the weakness of the leaders, and for the actual complicity of the leaders.

We found out last December that Nancy Pelosi was briefed on George Bush’s torture methods and what our country was doing to innocent human beings; waterboarding, the stress positions, the torture prisons, Nancy Pelosi and Jay Rockefeller in the senate and both of them have come out strongly against impeachment and we believe it is because congress is complicit in many of the crimes, especially the leadership in Congress.

They’re briefed on what the president is going to do, they don’t make a public stand against torture, they don’t make a stand against warrantless wire-tapping or holding people, detaining people without their basic human rights of due process of a fair and speedy trial and to not be tortured.

So many times I believe that the two party system and the system is so correct that people who are in high leadership positions they can’t do anything to resist the system because they are a part of it.

Press TV: And if it’s so systemic, you were mentioning the wiretap program and people who have been saying that the Democratic convention is sponsored by AT&T, the company and a few other of those companies. We have been covering Obama’s trip to Europe. He is of course very much in favor of the war in Afghanistan. Do you really see any difference can be made given the two party system?

Sheehan: Like the grassroots level, the Democrats here in America are very progressive. They want the same things that I think are important to this country.

They want the troops to come home from Iraq and Afghanistan, they want universal single pair healthcare, they want their environment clean, they want the United States to eliminate its addiction to fossil fuels so we can have peace and so we can have a clean environment and sustainable future.

The grassroots Democrats want that, but now if they say Barack Obama is their candidate they have to demand this from him. I don’t think there is any difference between killing innocent people in Iraq and killing innocent people in Afghanistan.

The people of Afghanistan and indeed the government of Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11 and they were willing to give up Osama bin Laden to an international tribunal if the Unites States gave them the proper evidence, the proper warrants and the US refused to do that.

Now, two countries are destroyed. Thousands of American families have been devastated and over a million Iraqis and Afghans have been killed and or are refugees and their country is destroyed and I think somebody needs to be held accountable for that.

Press TV: Yes in deed, there was a wedding party of course and the ISAF massacre just days ago but Obama isn’t for that. Isn’t there a problem about being part of a grassroots movement…well I remember this Ralph Nader, the green party candidates, of course they don’t really stand a chance of power in the United States, do they?

Sheehan: Well, the way the electoral system is set up right now is very hard and the way our media is, its very hard. Like Dennis Kucinich was a very strong anti-war, pro-peace, pro-impeachment candidate and he gets shut out of the debates. Ralph Nader gets shut out of the debates, Cynthia McKinney the green party candidate is a very strong candidate for peace and accountability and she gets shut out of media coverage.

So it’s hard to get people to vote for you if they don’t even know that you exist and in America unless you’re on CNN or on the mainstream debates the people don’t hear your position and that’s very unfortunate.

Press TV: And finally Cindy Sheehan, Iran…Obama was again making comments about Iran. I think he has made them in every city that he visited on this tour. We have had so many comments coming from the White House leaks, press reports, pressure in the IAEA, leaks from Vienna, do you think the US people would be able to have a stomach for war on Iran?

Sheehan: Well I think that of course the corporate media and the administration they are pushing for an invasion of Iran and I want to trust Mohamed ElBaradei from the IAEA commission who said there were no weapon of mass destruction in Iraq and he turned out to be correct and he has said that Iran is not enriching uranium for a nuclear bomb program that theirs is a peaceful program for energy, and Iran is a sovereign country, if they want to – I don’t agree with nuclear power as a form of energy but if the government of Iran, if the people of Iran want that – they should be able to with the proper restraints and with the proper oversight. And the IAEA is the perfect group to do that and to make sure that Iran’s nuclear program stays for energy purposes.

But then nobody talks about the fact that Israel has nuclear bombs, nobody talks about the fact that the United States has an overwhelming nuclear arsenal and we have to start talking about that, disarming all nuclear weapons, using alternative forms of energy, solar energy and wind energy and clean fuel for our power needs, and not to use nuclear power which are the very dirty and dangerous form of energy.

PRESS TV: Gravel Take Bush to The Hague

Posted in Press TV by alvarezgalloso on julio 27, 2008

Former Democratic candidate Mike Gravel says President George W. Bush should be taken to The Hague for war crimes rather than being impeached.

In a Monday video conference with Press TV, the former Alaska senator said President Bush does not ‘deserve’ to be impeached for invading Afghanistan and Iraq, which has resulted in the loss of ‘millions of lives’.

“An Impeachment just means you would only take away his (Bush’s) presidency. Well, he is almost done (with) his presidency. What really needs to happen is that these people have to be held accountable for the crimes they have committed,” the 78-year-old Libertarian said referring to the US president and Vice President Dick Cheney.

“If you impeach the president and vice president, Nancy Pelosi is going to become president; that is not going to happen,” Gravel added.

Gravel is an outspoken advocate of impeaching Bush and Cheney over the disinformation campaign they have led in support of their go-to-war policies.

“There is a lot of very good news that makes me tremendously hopeful that we as a nation are starting to wake up and insist our congressional representatives act to make impeachment happen now,” he had said in a statement in January after congressman Dennis Kucinich announced plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Bush.

Washington: Leave Press TV Alone

Posted in Press TV by alvarezgalloso on julio 23, 2008

While the world prepares for the Beijing Olympics in 2008 under the guise of “Forever Friends”, the Republican and Democratic Elite who ruin the United States of America under the guise of a so called “US Representative” Gus Bilirakis has decided to imitate Castro and Chavez by proposing a law called HR 1308 which would censor Press TV and IRIB. This proposal does not surprise me since the Republicans and Democrats as well as their puppets in Cuba and Venezuela are experts in censoring opposing viewpoints especially when it comes to the truth.

I have the honour of viewing Press TV as well as IRIB on the internet as well as on shortwave radio. On Press TV and IRIB, I have also seen different viewpoints while channels such MSNBC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and all other mainstream media with initials inside America repressing viewpoints that are not of the Republican and Democratic Origin.
I have not seen any proof of incitement to Anti American Violence in IRIB and Press TV. On the other hand, I have seen the Mainstream Media in America incite racial and ethnic hatred in their programmes since the Republicans and Democrats have been known as harbingers of hypocrisy and hate against anything they do not understand [including American Political Parties such as Libertarians and Greens].

The “US Representative” Bilirakis has the audacity to claim that IRIB and Press TV incites Americans to Islamic Radicalization yet many people in America have not become Muslim. In fact, many are waking up and finding Press TV and IRIB as a healthy and credible alternative to the trash that is coming out of stations such as CNN and FOX. Many people are waking up to the fact that they have been lied to, deceived, and abandoned by the Mainstream Media and the Governing Elite. If there is any radicalization, it was secondary to the indifferent attitude of the Republican and Democratic Adinistration to what happened to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, Rita, and Wilma in 2005. Other reasons have been the encouragement of corruption and destruction of family values by the American Mainstream Media including the encouragement of false accusations against men and women with the intent on destroying families.

It is not enough to censor the true voices of freedom within America such as Ron Paul and Bob Barr, the Republican and Democratic Monsters that have sucked America dry wants to deprive the people of the United States of America of the freedom to listen to the media that they prefer. The right to listen to any viewpoints however disagreeable is part of the fabric of the US Constitution. The right to dissent against the Republicans and Democrats is also a part of the US Constitution. If the people of the United States of America does not have the will to do something, the world has the right [after all the USA Governing Elite intervened in Iraq] to force a regime change by peaceful means within the United States of America. It is with this reason that I support the efforts of Francis A. Boyle to represent Iran [and maybe IRIB and Press TV] if they should ever decide to initiate legal proceedings against the Republican and Democratic Clique in Washington. I express this thought as an individual who is a US Citizen by Birth and who still lives in America.
