If the UN forces try to use this as an excuse the send in forces, then you can bet it was a planned attack by the Rebels. Just watch how it plays out.

Fascism is the control of the economy by the state. Authoritarianism and Fascism are not the same thing. The latter term is constantly misused as in this article's title.

  


Do n't get mad at me because you never took a course in economic history.

Fascism is based on productivism - which is loosely economic growth as a means of social regeneration and wider assertion of national importance. It is essentially control of an industry, later handed over private enterprise as was done in Italy.

Its your fault you use the term for anything you simply find "oppressive.&qu ot;

If the US was fascist than the government would control the corporations too. The corporations control the government instead and help draft the bills that create a tighter control on the American public. Pretty scary.

Snowden will get his just like Manning. All of you ambulance chasers go try and catch somebody bleeding or crying.

There is no true democracy in any developed country. Now with all countries opting in for massive NSA type spying networks , the average person is nothing more than part of a collection of corralled carbon forms with the delusion of democracy and freedoms .

Wikileaks itself is promoting a deception: that America (or Britain) were EVER democracies. In particular, America ain't nothing more than an Anglo colonizer empire, which is disguised as a democracy. And it has been this way since 1776. After all, America's Founding Fanatics like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were all White slaveowners.

Wha t do you call it when the bankers control the state and the economy? Usury?

  


That would be a plutocracy, a state ruled by the rich. There is no true democracy in America, only one tainted in hypocrisy. A president might be elected, but the truth is even he is sponsored by large conglomerates. Nearly every war done in America's name since the Korean War has been done to benefit oil companies and banks more than the people. It has been said that if everyone knew how the banking system worked one day, then the next day the entire world will be in a revolution.
