In 2003, one million people took to the streets of London to protest against the war in Iraq. Four years later, amidst Bush’s “surge” in Iraq and the advanced preparations for a military assault on Iran, the capital saw somewhat less than 30,000 march on Saturday under the slogan, “No Trident—Troops out of Iraq.”

On Tuesday march 6th at 10 am four antimilitarist activists will be on
trial for a military train blockade in fall 2004. The public prosecutor
asks for a sentence of one year's imprisonment, while the activist's
lawyer pleads for acquittal. The trial has been postponed already three
times, the last two because of the absence of the witnesses (4 policemen)
for the prosecution without giving any reason.

Must see video...BBC reports tell of collapse of WTC7 half an hour before it fell.

At the corner of Hollywood and Vine, just blocks away from where the Hollywood Oscars were to be presented at the Kodak Theater, the "Military Families Speak Out" organization hosted an “Oscar for Peace” awards ceremony and "Bring Our Troops Home Now" peace vigil.

No question in my mind, sorry! I think we need to get Smart! What do you think 99?

As should be expected, the Sunday Telegraph, as a neocon newspaper formerly associated with Baron Black of Crossharbour, aka Conrad Black, has sugar-coated this terrorism against the Iranian people, dismissing it as “pressure” against the “Islamic regime” the neocons accuse of working feverishly on nuclear weapons, an allegation completely devoid of any evidence, that is beyond the Brothers Grimm fairy tales invented by the neocons.
