Rodong Sinmun on Economic Crisis and Aggressive Nature of 
Imperialism
`
February 24. 2009 | From bottom: Item 4
`
`
"Economic crisis in capitalist countries is not limited to
simple economic phenomena.
`
When the imperialists find it hard to seek a way out of the
economic crisis at home, they try to find it in launching
aggression and war against other countries by force of arms.
`
At present the U.S. is in the grip of the most serious eco-
nomic crisis.  It is, therefore, keenly interested in the
policy of aggression and war toward other countries.
`
The U.S. imperialists are working hard to seek a way out of
their economic crisis
`
in provoking a war of aggression against the DPRK and, fur-
thermore,
`
[>] in starting a war against Asia and the world."

RUSSIAN FEDERATION
`
February 19, 2009,
`
Conversation with Cadets at the Training Centre for Junior
Officers of Armoured Forces
`
QUESTION: Recently we witnessed significant changes in the
situation in the Armed Forces, such as improvements in the
combat training for troops, and financing of the military.
`
Russia is now feeling the impact of the global financial
crisis.  How will this affect the operational status of
the units and the material situation of those serving in
the military?
`
MEDVEDEV: At this time there have been spending cuts invol-
ving major budget items.  Naturally, this has been done in
consultation with the Ministry of Defence.  In these matters
we proceeded very carefully, because you can cut fat but not
muscle.  And it is very important to maintain those things
that are currently the most important or [>] most critical,
one might say.
`
What do I mean by this?
`
On the one hand, there is the acquisition of new weapons,
the continuation of the procurement of new equipment and
the implementation of the state armament programme for basic
items, because without the new weaponry there is no point in
having Armed Forces.

VPDF, VUFO leaders’ pilgrimage to former resistance base
`
"VPDF President Mme Nguyen Thi Binh and VUFO President Mr.
Vu Xuan Hong recently made a pilgrimage-type tour of the
former anti-French resistance base in Thai Nguyen province,
northwest of Hanoi.  With them were veterans and young ac-
tivists of the two organizations.
`
They laid flowers and burned incense sticks at the Ho Chí
Minh Memorial, and visited various historical sites, in-
cluding the palm-roofed hut where Ho Chí Minh lived during
the early 1950s and another where the Vietnamese leadership
took the decision to launch the 1954 Dien Bien Phu campaign.
`
The visitors spent several hours at Diem Muc commune, Dinh
Hoa district, talking and sharing a cultural program with
local inhabitants, and planting trees at the site where the
foundation congress of the Vietnam Peace Committee, one of
VUFO’s eldest member organizations, was held in November
1950, half way through the First Indochina War.
`
They also presented gifts to Mrs. Tung Thi Hu, 96 years old,
and other local elders who had given logistical assistance
to the congress.
`
(This congress received from Ho Chí Minh a message of greet-
ing dated November 17, 1950, and the day is now celebrated
as Traditions Day of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organi-
zations.)

Bush's "icy smile" enraged Iraq shoe-thrower
`
Thu Feb 19, 2009 7:44am EST
`
"He was talking and at the same time smiling icily at the
([puppet] Iraqi) prime minister.  He said to the [puppet]
prime minister that he was going to have dinner with him.

"Suddenly I saw no one in the room but Bush.  I felt the
blood of innocents was running under his feet while he was

smiling coldly as if he had come to write off Iraq with a
farewell meal.

"After  more than a million Iraqis killed,  after all the
economic and social destruction...I felt that this person
`
IS THE KILLER OF THE PEOPLE,
`
THE PRIME MURDERER.
`
I was enraged and threw my shoes at him."

Q&A - Supply routes for Western troops in Afghanistan
`
Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:42am GMT
`
"WHAT IS THE U.S. BASE USED FOR?
`
Manas...is used as a stopover for ferrying supplies and
troops into Afghanistan."
`
Such a *reply* ignores The Superpower's war of aggression
against the Emirate of Afghanistan; and ignores its occu-
pation of the Afghan land; and ignores its sociocide of
everything the Afghan people value:
`
INDEPENDENCE
`
That's why it's a reply --inherently insufficient-- and
not an answer.

THE CONSTRUCTION
`
"Recruitment is not just a security problem.  The challenge
lies in constructing more inclusive societies in which the
narratives of exclusion and grievances will not resonate."
`
THE FAKE MIRROR IMAGE
`
"This pattern of withdrawal from open agitation is consis-
tent across Western Europe."
`
HOW IT WORKS
`
What before was unusual (high-profile mosques) is now con-
structed as normal and what was then normal (private homes
and bookshops) is now constructed as something new and un-
usual.
`
LIKELY RESULTS
`
With constructors like this in charge, the hull of the ship
of state is already scraping up against the iceshelf.
