Nor do they acknowledge Israel's planning of these attacks, and those to come, long before the Annapolis Charade.

Where are the angry demonstrations?

Official Version of Hormuz 'Naval Incident' Starts to Unravel

12-01-2008 14:28

There is a state in the region with a record of faking such situations in order to trick the US into war - but it isn't Iran ... "The Pentagon has said that it recorded the film and the sound separately, and then stitched them together"

Unless the media starts to seriously acknowledge Israel and America's desperate attempts to start a war with Iran, there can be no real understanding of these events amongst much of the public.

London Gitmo demo.

12-01-2008 11:27

Hundreds gather at the US Embassy...
On Friday several hundreds of volunteers from Amnesty International staged a protest in London near the American Embassy. Building work at the temple of darkness prevented the demonstration from happening right outside. The their credit the protesters endured an hour of being made to stand and kneel in the freezing rain while others dressed as American soldiers bawled orders and insults at them. Special mention should go to the attack dogs which gave what can only be described as Oscar worthy performances.

After Peter Hain - unshackle MPs and 'Peers' and let them question Govt freely

12-01-2008 09:00

After Peter Hain - unshackle MPs and 'Peers' and let them question Govt freely. It is not more public cash that 'career politicians and councillors' deserve. It is accountability and truthful audit of their work by the elected 'representatives' and other 'legitimate forums' that are already overly paid in the name of the public and from the coffers of the public.
