BBC aiding & abetting anti-Muslim pogrom in the UK

28-12-2006 00:47

Photoshopped frame grab from the official Scotland Yard website
Set aside for a moment Sir Ian Blair and his daily race-hate lies paid for by London's longsuffering council tax payers. Every time they say 'suicide bomber' on the news my guts go over. Mostly because I know the newsreaders are just trotting out anonymous military sources, but we are SUPPOSED to feel sick. It's part of a psycological operation to get us to hate Muslims in which the highest level BBC editors and managers are complicit.

Steve Pound MP on SOCPA - Radio 4 Christmas Repeal - Vote now!

27-12-2006 09:35

Milan Rai and Maya Evans reading out the names of the dead in Parliament Square
Radio 4 is running a Christmas Repeal listener vote, and the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act (SOCPA) is one of the candidates. Steve Pound, Labour MP, was on the Today programme this morning talking a load of bull about SOCPA, but he was forced to admit that Maya Evans and Milan Rai should not have been convicted under the Act. This jolted me out of my apathy to go and vote and to send a comment to Today (below).

Hang Him, hang Him Quick!

27-12-2006 02:15

The puppet judiciary of occupied Iraq today announced that Saddam Hussein would be hanged within 30 days. Saddam is presently being tried for the mass murder of Kurdish villagers but the judiciary insisted that he MUST be executed regardless of any other proceedings. This decision is a ‘just in time’ corporate-style decision – just in time for what the uninformed reader would ask? Just in time to save America from incrimination for supplying the chemical weapons and expertise required to kill the innocent Kurdish villagers – that is the REAL NEWS of the day!

Would saddam's execution solve the Iraqi conflict?

26-12-2006 20:05

The execution of the formaer Iraqi presidant Saddam Hussein is an unjustified and an inhumane verdict due to several un-lawful reasons. It could fuel insurgency all over the Iraq and millions are likely to be killed in civil wars thereafter. It should therefore be stopped and leave him die in his captivity. The USA adminstration should proof its real intention in establishing democracy rather than massacres.

Washington's Game in Turkmenistan

map of Turkmenistan
"Naturally, Niyazov was on the same "target list" as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and Saddam Hussein, the other foreign leaders whose only real crime is that they control vital supplies of dwindling resources. This puts them at odds with the American oil giants whose plans to expand their corporate empire throughout Central Asia and the Middle East is now a matter of the public record."
