The country’s first gas processing plant at Atubao is also producing natural gas from the Jubilee field, providing power to several of Ghana’s thermal power plants.

DVD X3279 Depicts biographical portraits of four Indian artists: Baje Whitethorne, Navajo landscape painter; Brenda Spencer, Navajo weaver; John Fredericks, Hopi Kachina carver; and Nora Naranjo-Morse, Santa Clara sculptor. My point is that ...1470 Forget about G-adventure. In 1935, Butler also wrote War is a Racket, and its major point was that in all future wars, the first thing that should be conscripted is capital, and he campaigned on that theme for the rest of his life.� The Great Depression of the 1930s was a global phenomenon, and it brought Hitler and others to power.� Life for the rem nants of Native American tribes did not improve much after their conquest, dispossession, and genocide was completed during the late 19th century.� During the 20th century, the USA continued genocidal policies against Native Americans, including forced sterilization, forcible removal of children from their parents, to be raised in the white culture, more active undermining of tribal governance, and still more theft of their lands.� Canada also did the same things.� It was not until America’s Civil Rights era that Native Americans began making a comeback. [254] It is doubtful that any power in world history ever militarily “helped” others primarily from benevolent intent.� Violence is not a humanitarian undertaking, as it always violates somebody.� Regarding “benevolent” wars, history has shown that it was always a ruling class machination that the common people were blind to, as they cheered the warfare, to “help” other people.� Those common people also served as cannon fodder for the ruling class’s ambition.� Much later, after it did not matter anymore, the truth came out.� Covering up ulterior motivation is primarily why “national security” secrecy exists, to cover-up crimes in high places and foster and maintain deceptions, not to attend to “ national security .”� World War II was humanity’s most devastating war…so far, with up to 100 million deaths. [255] � In the USA, it is known as America’s greatest war, often called the “ good war .”� World War II was obviously born of imperialism and the fact that the imperialist latecomers, Germany and Japan in particular, needed easy access to cheap foreign resources and labor in order to become imperial powers, but the other Great Powers already owned the world.� Hitler took a page from America’s handbook and saw Eastern Europe in the same way that America’s Founding Fathers saw the American continent: possessed by inferior races whose dispossession and extermination (if necessary) would clear the way for “living space” for the chosen race’s settlement.� Hitler’s “crime” was targeting white people as inferior races (although far from unprecedented in Europe).� Japan developed a similar Manifest Destiny ideology toward China.� While Germany and Japan were making imperial moves, the USA's government and industrial leaders held Germany in warm regard, and even when Japan intentionally sank an American ship as it attacked China, Franklin Roosevelt actively covered for them and minimized the incident in the American media.� When Germany and Japan began stepping on imperial toes, the situation became strained, although the USA declared war on Germany after Germany declared war on them, after the Pearl Harbor attack, which was no great surprise to the American military .� When it came time to put down the imperial upstarts, communists received a quick makeover, and one of history’s bloodiest tyrants, Joseph Stalin, became Uncle Joe in the USA, at least while there were Nazis to defeat.� The Pacific Theater was largely an American race war against Japan, to wipe out their nascent empire .� As World War II ended, America quickly hired all the useful Nazis, even those who performed human experiments in the death camps .� The CIA epitomized American foreign policy, as it was headed by Wall Street lawyers and executives, and hired the Nazi intelligence network virtually intact, to wage covert war against Uncle Joe.� There were even plans to nuke the Soviet Union out of existence, with Nazi help.� The reign of Joe McCarthy in those post-war years was no anomaly, but neatly aligned with the USA's neocolonialism and fabricating the communist threat, which was really the threat that the colonized world might free itself from the West’s shackles.� Few will bal dly state what their true ambition is, especially when it is driven by greed and a lust for power.� However, declassified documents from the war and early post-war years clearly spelled out the American government's intentions.� American planners saw the colonized world in virtually the same way that Europe had, but their internal documents phrased things more clinically.� Before World War II had even ended, the USA's planners saw nearly the entire globe as its “Grand Area,” and the USA's destroyed imperial rivals were going to follow the “great workshops” example of Japan and Germany during the war and become producers of goods that the USA would find useful.� Traditional colonial lands were to be a source of cheap labor, food, and natural resources, and a captive market for manufactures, in mercantile fashion.� Colonial domains, Africa in particular, were to be exploited to help rebuild Europe and Japan. [256] � The USA's plans were a blueprint for a truly global empire.� Only the Soviet Union stood in its way (and later, China), and that was what the Cold War was all about, which the USA instigated and escalated at every opportunity.� One of Am erica’s leading diplomats, George Kennan, who was a Soviet Union expert and considered the USA's leading foreign policy dove, authored Policy Planning Study 23 for the U.

Many of A merica’s Gulf War actions qualified as war crimes.� One was the infamous bombing of the retreating Iraq army, on the highway leading from Mutlaa, Kuwait to Basra.� It was a mass exodus from the city, which included the Iraq military that was withdrawing to Iraq on Hussein's orders, and also civilians and prisoners.� What the USA's military did on that highway stands as one of the greatest and most defenseless mass murders of the modern era.� The USA disabled the front and rear vehicles on that highway, which trapped two thousand vehicles and their occupants into a seven-mile-long parking lot.� Then the planes flew mission after mission on the helpless vehicles and their occupants, and annihilated and incinerated many thousands of people, perhaps tens of thousands.� That highway became known as the "Highway of Death."� One pilot who flew the "Highway of Death" mission described it as "shooting fish in a barrel," and the pilots rushed back and forth from the aircraft carriers supplying them with bombs.� According to the Washington Post, "Their preferred weapon, the Rockeye cluster bomb, was passed over for others because elevators were too slow getting them up to the flight deck in time for the next launch."

Hong Kong has a free market economy, highly dependent on international trade and finance - the value of goods and services trade, including the sizable share of re-exports, is about four times GDP. In late 2013, Ireland formally exited its EU-IMF bailout program, benefiting from its strict adherence to deficit-reduction targets and success in refinancing a large amount of banking-related debt. One of Africa's earliest civilizations, the Zingh Empire, existed and may have lived in what was a lake filled, wet and fertile Sahara, where ships criss-crossed from place to place.
