Blair hoping for the "spoils" of War says Pravda

08-02-2003 21:11

The fact that the UK and the USA can base a causus belli, a cause for war, knowingly, on such blatantly contrived, biased and false information is utterly incredible. It is the governments of the United States of America and the United Kingdom which are cheating the international community, or in the words of George Bush, “stiffing”.

Gassing his own people?: What happened in Halabja?

08-02-2003 21:07

The next stage of Facism in the United States

08-02-2003 18:17

The 'war on terror' has been the justification for an unprecedented attack on American civil and constitutional rights. The next stage of that attack is now in train. A second 'Patriot Bill' will give the state extraordinary new powers including a catch22 right to strip citizens whom the state decides belong to 'terrorist organizations' of their citizenship (thus suspending their right to the protection of the US Constitution)

This was written 3 years ago and nothing has changed. Care or don't. Either way, it's up to you. But don't say I didn't warn you. If you ignore what I'm saying and let your government drag us into another Vietnam, then we'll really see this society tear itself apart. And in the long run, maybe that wouldn't be so bad after all. Because this time, we'll go all the way. If enough American bodies come home in boxes, the Colombian War will be the straw that will break the Prohibition's back. It will break it in the streets. Or we could take another route and settle this peaceably. Either way, it's up to you.
