…real madrid lights a candle of hope into the stygian darkness…

…as that darkness of an erratic, yet destructive, imperialism continues to overwhelm…

Real Madrid with one simple gesture of kindness unwittingly exposes the culpability (and callousness) of those countries that have created the humanitarian disaster in the Middle East (and other countries not reported on). And in a gesture that will transcend (and shine an embarrassing light on) the reputation and rhetoric of other ‘world leaders’, we have Cristiano Ronaldo.

For the root cause of the disaster, reported in the media, as it affects Europe in particular, and refugees of other countries not so fortunate, we have Andre Vltchek fill us in, Refugee crisis: Brought to you by Western imperialism.

Vltchek also provides a brief historical context. We have a sampler,

While Europe is erecting fences, deploying armies and expressing its “concern” about how to deal with the annual influx of some 300,000 asylum seekers, vast areas of the world – namely the Middle East and Africa – are essentially ceasing to exist.

For years, I have been witnessing the desperate movements of millions of refugees and migrants all over the world.

The West has been redrawing the borders everywhere, performing direct invasions, or using proxy wars, in order to destabilize or directly destroy all “hostile” governments (read: those that have been determined to feed, educate, house and cure their own people).

Wherever a socially oriented government gets into power, the West immediately begins to manufacture and sponsor so-called “opposition movements.” Civil wars are triggered, sometimes followed by direct invasions.

Except for Central America, immune has been the prime catalyst to such a tidal wave of humanity fleeing their own countries and seeking refuge in countries that, generally, lack the resources to cope, even if they have the compassion that is evidently so lacking in the very agents of the disaster. The blogs and alternative media now ensure the availability of stark reality to a world formerly flooded by a media cooperative in disguising or manufacturing reality.
