Iran demonstration 14 feb 2011 – People in Tehran are burning pictures of Khomeini and Khamenei

In this first video people are saying, “After Mubarak it is time for Seyyed Ali
(Khamenei the supreme leader) to leave”!

Supreme Leader Khamenei

Iran Shiraz 25 Bahman 14 Feb 2011 Protestors chanting Death to Dictator p69

An Iranian diplomat told me that the people’s problem is not Ahmadinejad anymore but the “supreme leader, Khamenei.”

In this video people are saying that they want the police to support them!
You see that the number of protesters has decreased from last year, but this is
just because the government officially said that they are going to shoot
people if they leave their houses on Feb. 14. These two videos are from
last year. I just wanted you to see how many supporters there really are!

"Love of money is the root of all evil."

Embattled Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, whose regime has received billions in U.S. aid, has been in the global media spotlight of late. He’s long been our bastard, but he’s not alone.

Let’s take a look at the other dictators from around the planet who are fortunate enough to be on Uncle Sam’s good side.

1. Paul Biya, Cameroon

Biya has ruled Cameroon since winning an election in 1983. He was the only candidate, and did pretty well, getting 99 percent of the vote.

According to the country’s Wikipedia entry, The United States and Cameroon work together in the United Nations and a number of other multilateral organizations. While in the UN Security Council in 2002, Cameroon worked closely with the United States on a number of initiatives. The U.S. government continues to provide substantial funding for international financial institutions, such as the World Bank, IMF, and African Development Bank, that provide financial and other assistance to Cameroon.

February 7th, 2011

By Shawn Hamilton

It’s been a year since AE911Truth secured the signatures of at least 1000 licensed/degreed architects and engineers who supported the group’s effort to effect a new, independent investigation of events that occurred on 9/11.

I didn’t know what a “truther” was when I went to San Francisco to cover this story, but I would find out very quickly. Soon after a print version of the radio story  (9:11 into broadcast) I had produced for KPFA appeared on, I was accused of being one.” – Full story here

How do you say you had sex? Do you tell your friends you banged her? She might say you made love.

There is an infinite number of ways to say “having sex” without actually saying… “having sex.”

With as many euphemisms as there are for sex, it seems as if we have no better way to be creative. Yes, and some of the euphemisms are very creative.

Here’s a list of 165 favorites.
