Schnews on Burma: a response

Craig Murray's new web server attacked

02-10-2007 13:52

Craig Murray's web site is still not back online after a lengthly downtime caused by Fasthosts disconnecting the server it was hosted on at the behest of Shillings who are acting on behalf of Alisher Usmanov. The latest twist in this story is that a further delay in the return of his site has been caused by the server it was due to go live on being attacked:

"Murray found a new home for his website, when our main man Rich stepped into the breach, offering to host the site on his server, in defiance of oligarchical bluster. This new Murray site was due to launch on Monday, October 1; but lo and behold, Rich's server was hit by the hacker firebomb on Sunday, September 30 – just hours before the Murray site was to go live."

Media and War

02-10-2007 13:10

The news media in times of crisis and war reproduce and do not question the consciousness and attitudes of the elites. Wars are seen as exceptional situations by the media in which patriotism outweighs the journalistic self-image of critically distanced reporting.

Iraq Will Have to Wait: Get Ready for the War against Iran

02-10-2007 08:35

The long-awaited “progress report” of Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker on the status of the occupation of Iraq has been made, providing Americans, via the compliant media, with the spectacle of loyal Bush yes men offering faith-based analysis in lieu of fact-based assessment. In the days and weeks that have since passed, two things have become clear: Neither Congress nor the American people (including the antiwar movement) have a plan or the gumption to confront President Bush in anything more than cosmetic fashion over the war in Iraq, and while those charged with oversight mill about looking to score cheap political points and/or save face, the administration continues its march toward conflict with Iran unimpeded.
