“The run-up to, and proceedings of the so-called G-20 conference, have a quality which suggests that all these discussions might have been a parody of the notorious “Marat/Sade” of playwright Peter Weiss. What has been proposed by a number of leading nations represented, verges on the taking of cyanide as an assured remedy for a severe headache. If what has been proposed, as by both the current U.S. government, and haters of the U.S. dollar, alike, were adopted, the result would be fairly compared to going to an actual Hell in a global game modeled on the board game of “Monopoly.”

Worldwide Opposition Grows to ICC Lies on Sudan  

by DDF

Senior scholars, specialists, and high-level former diplomats, including from the United States, are challenging the myth of the “genocide” of 300,000-400,000 Darfurians, and denouncing the International Criminal Court’s warrant against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir as a disaster for Sudan, and a foreign policy nightmare for the United States, should it be endorsed as U.S. policy.
