Two Axioms of 9/11

13-09-2006 20:08

The War on the American People – that psychological operation against our minds and emotions that began with the demolition of the World Trade Center and has continued unabatedly for five consecutive years – has been reinvented and redeployed, its army of lackey journalists, talking heads, government institutions and authoritarian politicians eager to spread the language and images needed to resurrect emotions and feelings, spreading the filth designed to manipulate our fears and hatreds, conditioning us into accepting the dictates of the state and the corporation along with the reality of a world of perpetual war and perpetual terror.

'Path to 9/11' Obscures Real Terror Network

13-09-2006 08:15

Thankfully, the “docudrama,” the Path to 9/11, thought to be a documentary by some people—likely to the glee of neocons, especially former Marxist David Horowitz—has come and gone, or at least half of it has. Now we are roiling in the political aftermath.

In order to make a long and tedious story short, it appears Horowitz had a guiding hand in the production of the eminently forgettable miniseries, consisting basically of little more than prolonged and orgiastic Clinton bashing.

The Anglo-American empire’s 9/11 atrocity: criminality’s zenith

13-09-2006 07:24

To accept any aspect of the US government’s account of 9/11, whether it is the brutal deceptions of the Bush administration (and the equally complicit neoliberal faction of the US elite), the limited hangout and cover-up of the 9/11 commission, or any of the incoherent “anti-conspiracy” ramblings of Left progressive “intellectuals," is to condone murder, and the absolute rule of criminals.

The Colder War

12-09-2006 18:25

An old article - but worth revisiting. This is a little disseminated story about how America - under Prez Carter - created, funded and trained the Taliban. This is the selfsame Taliban who violate women's and human rights, and against whom the war of terror - sorry! war on terror - is perpetrated, killing untold thousands of innocents in the process, reversing human rights and civil liberties in the name of freedom, etc., when meanwhile, back at the ranch - this was an enemy bought and paid for by the Americans. This needs to be widely circulated and the leaders of the so-called "democratic" and "freedom-loving" nations called to account for their atrocities.

Roof of St.Pauls Cathedral occupied to commemorate 9/11

12-09-2006 14:21

.
I case you were wondering 9/11 is not just the anniversary of General Pinochett's US backed coup which installed a fascist government and murdered 30,000 people. Nor is it just the day that the people of New York discovered what it is like to be Palestinian.

It is also the day that Gandhi announced his strategy of peaceful non violent direct action. A way of doing things that would eventually see the liberation of an entire continent and inspiration for many of the great civil rights movements of the last 100 years.

Whether or not such tactics could work now is a matter of debate. One of the first things that US troops did when 'liberating' Iraq was to gun down 'peaceful non violent' demonstrators demanding jobs from the 'Coalition' government. Personally I think that if Gandhi was alive now he would be carrying an AK47 and dedicating his spare time to making roadside bombs.

Anyway, yesterday was the 100th anniversary of Gandhi's declaration. So to remember the great man and his work, 3 women occupied the roof of St.Pauls Cathedral and dropped a banner. Below is their press release.

Women in Burkas Surround Afghan Embassy in Washington DC

American Women Chained to Afghan Embassy on 9/11/2006
American Women Demonstrate in Chains and Burkas Against Afghan Embassy on 9/11

"America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way around. Human rights invented America." - President Jimmy Carter

Following that credo, on September 11, 2006, American women handcuffed and chained themselves to the Afghan Embassy in Washington, DC to protest against Hamid Karzai's oppressive government. A spokeswoman stated that this was "just the start of demonstrations against the Afghan Embassy in Washington to protest President Karzai's illegal imprisonment of innocent Americans and treatment of Afghan women." The women also announced that demonstrations will take place at the Afghan embassies in Washington and London on October 12th, 2006.

NATO in disarray over military crisis in Afghanistan

12-09-2006 00:20

Bitter combat and inevitable casualties
With the prospect of months of bitter combat and inevitable casualties fighting an entrenched and popularly supported insurgency, however, no country has stepped forward as of yet to provide the additional troops. Less than two months after taking over operational control of the southern promises, NATO forces are sinking into the same quagmire as their American counterparts.

SOCPA - judge trashes human rights "because she can"

11-09-2006 19:34

judge wright, when asked by barbara tucker's barrister why she was setting bail conditions that were unprecedented and 'unheard of', replied 'because i can'. today, the simple action of standing alone with a banner decrying blair's war-crimes has been criminalised not just in the designated zone, but even elsewhere, on penalty of imprisonment. this is way beyond even the original contentious socpa powers and marks a further sinister attack on protest.
