Chris Floyd, author of Empire Burlesque: High Crimes and Low Comedy in the Bush Imperium, explains America’s proxy war in Somalia and some of the liars in the mass media who aid and abet this mass murder.


Large segments of the big media are either not reporting or misreporting the massive and still unfolding war crime taking place in Somalia, where the Bush administration has been trying another regime change, this time by proxy, using the Ethiopian army as their primary weapon. I've been following this story but haven't been able to give it as much attention as it has deserved.

And that's one more reason to be thankful for Chris Floyd, who has been doing his usual thorough job of seeking out the truth behind the media distortions, and sharing that truth with all who will listen.

The excellent items Chris has posted on this story include the following:
