The Problem With...Tourism

24-08-2006 22:11

The human race is a race of travellers; we have imagined, discovered, explored, charted and opened up almost all of the Earth's land surface, and are rarely content to stop moving. Given the time and (usually) money, we have an instinctive urge to travel; whether this be to feed our imaginations, stimulate our senses or satisfy some less clear urge that we do not fully understand, we travel. Six and a half billion humans with itchy feet is not something we should take lightly.

24-08-2006 21:22

The compulsory recall of ‘inactive servicemen’ in the United States might even go unnoticed in North America and most the world until analysts, historians and later generations look back at the present events unfolding in these contemporary times, years from now and place them into focus within a larger matrix of events.

Free in our Time…

24-08-2006 19:22

While we in this country are subjected to endless coverage of fake bomb plots and a ten year old dead white girl case, the 33 Day War has dramatically altered the Middle East and the World. The slaves of Lebanon took the full wrath of their master and did not blink. This is a powerful turning point in the balance of power and marks the beginning of the end of subjugation.

Are FOX News Employees really “Noncombatants”?

24-08-2006 18:40

We still have absolutey no idea who has captured the two reporters, or - in fact - if the kidnappers were of Palestinian origin.
Israel would absolutely love for the media to leave Gaza and never come back, so that there is no light shown on the plight of Palestinians in Gaza to the rest of the world.

The enviromental cost of Israel's lunacy. August 24th. Photo report

24-08-2006 18:13

This beach would usually be packed at this time of year. Every lifeguard station would be operational and the sand would be obscured by tens of thousands of sunbathers and local families. This was the hub of Beirut’s growing tourist industry. Now the bars along the sea front are as deserted as the beach itself. It is closed to the public for reasons of safety. Only press and volunteer clear-up teams are allowed in. Last night CNN ran a highly biased documentary about the effect of the war on Israel’s tourist industry. What about Lebanon? Tourism was the fastest growing part of this little country’s economy. Unlike Israel there is no American money to plug the gap left in people’s livelihoods. The damage to the income of the coastal towns and cities is high; the environmental damage is nothing short of a catastrophe
