05-09-2006 20:16In a 'triumph of Blairism', the government has awarded a £1.5 billion NHS contract to DHL - a Germany-based air courier company. Workers in Runcorn are amongst those considering strike action.
05-09-2006 19:42I recognise what Danny is saying, the innocents as he calls them, this may be true - I remain open to these forms of discussions of even the inklings of our humanity and our true nature. I know of an RAF doctor and a UK soldier and quite a few ex-US soldiers who left the army because they did not want to kill, torture and participate in something they knew was wrong. But I think I am asking a separate question, do I want to cry over the death of a solider, no, as that is one less soldier killing innocent people, waging an illegal war, participating in an illegal invasion.
05-09-2006 19:38I would like to correct the claims about the Rwandan conflict. The allegations of US involvement in the death of innocent people in the Bologna train bombings in Italy were proven to be true. If I believed the corporate media, the US and UK allies are saviours but thankfully there is something called reality and that even exists in Africa. The fake armies paid for by these thugs are becoming as apparent in Africa as they are in Europe. As Chomsky says even at the anniversary of Rwanda, the same number of people, about 8,000 people, about 8,000 children in fact, are dying in southern Africa every day from easily treatable diseases. We add hunger, it's going to go way up, let's keep to easily treatable diseases. That's Rwanda-level killing among children only, in southern Africa, not for 100 days, but every day. who does what?
Israel's war on Lebanon is an integral part of a US sponsored "military roadmap".
The war on Lebanon, which has resulted in countless atrocities including the destruction of the nation's economy and civilian infrastructure, is "a stage" in a sequence of carefully planned military operations.
Lebanon constitutes a strategic corridor between Israel and North-western Syria. The underlying objective of this war was the militarization of Lebanon, including the stationing of foreign troops, as a precondition for carrying out the next phase of a broader military agenda.
Formally under a UN mandate, the foreign troops to be stationed on Lebanese soil on the immediate border with Syria, will be largely although not exclusively from NATO countries. This military force mandated by the UN Security Council is by no means neutral. It responds directly to US and Israeli interests.
Moreover, the timely withdrawal of Syrian troops, following the February 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri has contributed to opening up a "new space". The withdrawal of Syrian troops served Israeli interests. The timely pullout was of strategic significance: it was a major factor in the timing and planning of the July 2006 IDF attacks on Lebanon.
In the aftermath of the Israeli bombings and the "ceasefire", UN Security Council Resolution 1701, drafted by France and the US in close consultation with the Israeli government, has paved the way for the militarization of Lebanon, under a bogus UN mandate.
