Shell in Mayo: A Backgrounder.

Over the last six years a group of corporations, Shell, Statoil, and Marathon, supported by the Irish State, have been attempting to force an unwanted development on the community there. Shell is major player in the group, with the two others owning lesser shares.
They are trying to build a 9 km on land high pressure production gas pipeline and a on land gas refinery to exploit the Corrib gas field, which is in the Atlantic ocean.
They plan to expand the development to exploit more gas and oil fields.
They have been consistently resisted culminating in the shutting down of construction by mass pickets in the summer of 2005.

Major Escalation in the War for U.S. Global Dominance?

08-10-2006 21:38

The Bush administration has recently succeeded in passing legislation that makes it easier to round up and torture American citizens, among others, and now it seems to want to start World War III. One can't help but wonder if threatening the entire planet (plans have allegedly been drawn up entertaining the nuclear option in Iran) is this administration's way of dealing with a very bad month of relevations.

Poofs, Paedophiles and American Puritanism

08-10-2006 15:39

Think of the final refuge for religious extremists (fanatical Christian cults) from Europe; and later, the sexual undertone of the Salem witch trials and you stare homosexual congressman, Mark Foley, ‘straight’ in the American sexual obsession. It seems that puritanism is alive and well in the good ol’ U.S of A! Amazing as the over-reactive American response may seem to Europeans and those of other nations, the news of a homosexual’s exploits with a boy has pushed all other news aside – incredible! The Mayflower continues to sail the waters of conservative America.
