16-06-2007 21:29

Labour’s deputy leader challengers present their tarnished wares

16-06-2007 18:03

With Gordon Brown anointed as British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s successor, after no one gained enough support to stand against him, the Labour Party deputy leadership race is being hailed as an arena for a battle over issues that matter to ordinary voters. This is being done in a desperate attempt by the Labour Party to posture as connected with the population at large.

The Day After We Strike Iran. What Will We Do Then?

16-06-2007 10:53

Let us suppose that the Bush-Cheney administration answers the neocons’ prayer and does indeed bomb Iran sometime soon. The plan apparently involves more than the destruction of nuclear facilities, replicating Israel’s attack on Iraq’s Osirak reactor in 1981.

Government buildings and officials’ residences will be targeted, guaranteeing collateral damage.
