U.S. and Miami Politics.
Unfortunately, much of what we watch on "News TV", listen on the radio, or read on newspapers and magazines is government right or left wing propaganda.
In my opinion, almost every time
a politician makes a statement it should be considered a lie until proven true.
In the history of the United States all presidents have lied to the American people, for whatever reason, no matter if they are from left or right wing.
During the Iraq war of aggression I became even more disappointed with the U.S. government because almost everything I heard on TV were lies and half truths.
I'm sorry to say but sometimes I feel I'm living in Nazi Germany when it comes to the mass media.
Sometimes they preach hate against people, nations, religions, and different points of view.
The only way for us to see through all this propaganda is to conduct research on the truth.
It appears that the job of the government is to keep us ignorant by hiding the truth from us.
Some people wonder how the most advanced nation at that time (Nazi Germany), with the most civilized people in the world, could do what they did to their own people (the Jews) and with other nations.
The answer is propaganda.
Propaganda is very powerful. It can take a nation to illegal wars. For example, the Iraqi War of Aggression.
Propaganda can make a civilized nation commit war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against historical sites.
On youtube I saw an interview in Switzerland with Robert Murdock the owner of Fox News.
Mr. Murdock was saying that what he puts on his TV station has to agree with his political agenda.
I never trusted 100% in Fox News and other TV stations and after watching this interview I have the proof I have been searching for.

War is an instrument of the government to create business opportunities for some big corporations and a small ruling class.
Should U.S. troops stay in Iraq?

Why are they there?
Who is profiting and who is losing from the Iraq invasion?
Was Iraq better off before the invasion?
US and Miami Politics Video 1 Main points:
The Iraq war is in violation of the U.N. charter and the U.S. constitution. U.N. security counsel never authorized the use of force against Iraq. War crimes (also crimes against humanity and cultural genocide) were committed. The U.S. was run by a group of war criminals and the only people that can force the American government to conform to international law is the U.S. People themselves.

Scott Ritter, a former UNSCOM weapons inspector, was the single individual who, before the war, stuck his neck out stated that Iraq did NOT possess WMD. He was all over national TV with this message but was dismissed as heretic.
Ahmadinejad never stated he wanted to wipe Israel off the map. An intentional mistranslation by the warmongering corporate media.
Who is Noam Chomsky?
US and Miami Politics Video 1:
In this edition of Conversations with History, UC Berkeley's Harry Kreisler is joined by linguist and political activist Noam Chomsky to discuss activism, anarchism, and the role the United States plays in the world today. Video 2:
For the past forty years Noam Chomsky's writings on politics and language have established him as a preeminent public intellectual and as one of the most original and wide-ranging political and social critics of our time. Among the seminal figures in linguistic theory over the past century, since the 1960s Chomsky has also secured a place as perhaps the leading dissident voice in the United States.

Noam Chomsky in "war on terrorism led by the worst terrorist state in the world".
Read the book "Power and Terror" by Noam Chomsky, he says clearly what America did and is still doing in Latin America.
They feed people with useless information from TV about Hollywood. Who divorced whom or who put on weight etc. They do this to occupy their minds with rubbish and keep them away from the truth. Video 4:
The renowned author, educator and linguist Professor Noam Chomsky delivered the third and final lecture of the Gifford Lecture Series, Illegal but Legitimate: a Dubious Doctrine for the New York Times.

Why isn't soccer popular in the U.S.A.?
One day during the 2010 world cup I was watching a program on TV about how the South Africa soccer team helped to unite the nation during the apartheid days.
In the beginning the team only had the support of the black people in the country, but as they started building up victories they gained the support of the whole country.
In the final game everybody was together rich, poor, black, white, people from different political parties and different religions were all supporting their country.
I remember when I was in my native country during the world cup, before the match they showed on TV a little bit of the history, geography, economy, politics, language and society of the two countries that were about to play.
Some illiterate people that could not read or write could point some of those countries on the map and tell a fact or two about their people's history.
The world cup is much more than a class about soccer, history and geography, it is a class about humanity.
Through the world cup we could learn that people from other countries have pretty much the same problems, difficulties and struggles as we here in the U.S.A., they are humans just like us.
Here in the U.S.A. some TV stations, newspapers and magazines try to dehumanize people from other countries, other faiths and other cultures.
They present them as barbarians, lunatics and uncivilized people.
The propaganda tries to show that these people would somehow benefit if we invaded their countries.
The ruling class don't allow soccer to get popular in the U.S.A. because we would learn more about the world's history, we would learn that people from different countries are humans just like us.
It becomes to hard to sell a war when people have a better understanding of the world. Say yes to peace say no to war and injustice.
