IAEA director Yukiya Amano oversteps his bounds

09-05-2010 11:23

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Yukiya Amano
With the departure of ElBaradei as the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a deep and bitter divide has opened up on the IAEA Board of Governors between advanced nuclear states, including most of the states with nuclear weapons, and developing countries that make up a majority of the membership. On highly publicized issues such as Iran and Syria, consensus has evaporated.

It remains to be seen whether Amano can restore consensus to the IAEA Board and building trust particularly of the majority of its members who represent the developing countries. However, his perfomance with respect to Iran thus far does not bode well.

New York car bomb Incident: Another false flag?

08-05-2010 19:36

a police officer approaches the car containing a bomb, Times Square, New York
As long as imperial ambitions and rogue agencies like CIA and their foreign counterparts exist, false flag operations will be commonplace, the May 1 New York one the latest example, and maybe a forerunner of what's to come - another 9/11 some believe, far worse than the first one, perhaps involving a nuclear incident in a US city.

Then using it as a pretext for more war and to divert attention from America's deepening economic crisis, likely to erupt in protests because of Washington's indifference to millions affected.

Ad in the New York underground station protesting Ahmadinejad's visit, May 2010
The Obama administration and the US media have exploited the visit of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to New York to again threaten Iran with further UN sanctions and military action over its nuclear programs and demonise the Iranian president.

Like the Iranian “military threat,” the demonisation of Ahmadinejad serves to deflect public attention from Washington’s underlying aim of dominating the key strategic regions of the Middle East and Central Asia.

Britain's Election: Welcome to No Choice Democracy

07-05-2010 20:46

"This “no choice democracy” is being foisted on ordinary people everywhere, from North America to Europe. It is the other side of the prescription of “economic structural adjustment” that for decades was the “tough medicine” that international capital forced poverty-stricken nations to swallow. The “choice” it seems is: you can hold your nose while swallowing this, or you may not hold your nose. The British non-election of 2010 marks the nadir in western so-called liberal democracy in which “we the people” have pointedly no choice in how our societies are to be run. Because we are all Third Worlders now. Bankrupt politics in hand with bankrupt economics."

New colonialism: Pentagon carves Africa into military zones

07-05-2010 19:42

Last year the commander of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), General William Ward, said the Pentagon had military partnerships with 35 of the continent's 53 nations, "representing U.S. relationships that span the continent." That number has increased in the interim.

As the first overseas regional military command set up by Washington in this century, the first since the end of the Cold War, and the first in 25 years, the activation of AFRICOM emphasizes the geostrategic importance of Africa in U.S. international military, political and economic planning.

Corporate Watch: backers of Maskiot settlement in the Jordan Valley

07-05-2010 19:33

Big corporations are not alone in implementing the Israeli occupation on the ground. Especially in the smaller settlements which do not yet have any industry or commercial outlets, ideological charities and religious groups play a crucial role when it comes to encouraging settlement expansion. This is the case with Maskiot, the first new settlement to be approved in the West Bank for a decade when it was officially established in the middle of 2008.

Democracy dies in Sheffield: students denied their constitutional right.

07-05-2010 18:15

Hundreds of voters in the Sheffield Hallam constituency were denied their democratic right to vote after waiting in queues of over 2 hours at polling stations. Voters had the door of polling stations slammed in their face at exactly 10pm, even though they had arrived at the polling station hours before the deadline, due to inefficient staff.
