No Standards, No Accountability

04-08-2006 19:47

Ten years ago, Representative Walter Jones (R-NC) introduced The War Crimes Act of 1996. This statute was one of many in the mid-1990s devoted to the principle of extraterritoriality: the extension of U.S. laws to other countries. When applied, such laws subject foreign nationals to prosecution if they treat a U.S. citizen or U.S. property in a way that violates U.S. laws.

British Open 2006: A Tale of Two Hoylakes

04-08-2006 13:05

Now that the golfers, the media, and the roadsigns have gone, Wirral is pretty much exactly as it was before the British Open. Except for two things. Number one: the rich are richer. Number two: the poor are poorer. While many of Wirral's businesses are counting their cash following the British Open, residents on the 'wrong side' of Hoylake are counting the cost.

Murray Bookchin: Requiem for a Pugilist

03-08-2006 23:20

Bookchin's writings on nature served as an intellectual framework for the growing anarchist movement of the 1960s. Like Herbert Marcuse, Bookchin saw the political potential of "flower children" that rejected the synthetic lifestyle of the 1950s. What Bookchin saw as an overall project of the New Left was to add an ethical dimension to revolutionary movements. Bookchin wasn't so much concerned with achieving state power as to the creation of pre-figurative formations that would undermine the old society. Bookchin placed his dreams on those willing to drop out of society and live by the affirmation of refusal.

Doomsday Global Warming: Fact-Sheet / What To Do?

03-08-2006 16:00

Drastic and tragic Climate Change is well underway, and will worsen unto Doomsday if we do not take drastic measures to stop its progress. Energy conservation is at best stopgap. The development of Green (clean, renewable, cheap) energy sources is indispensable. This has never been a particularly difficult technical problem. The Problem has been primarily political, necessitating a crucial political change --- Polluters' Power overridden by People's Power.

The US lost an important country today

03-08-2006 12:51

The 'Project for a New American Century' is sinking so fast that only the blood besmirched American flag is still visible above the ruins, the genocides, cemeteries and globally growing waves of intense contempt. Within six years the US management and its war machine has been unveiled: the blood of it's victims has definitely washed away the façade.

Hizballah: A Primer

03-08-2006 12:44

Hizballah, the Lebanese Shi‘i movement whose militia is fighting the Israeli army in south Lebanon, has been cast misleadingly in much media coverage of the ongoing war. Much more than a militia, the movement is also a political party that is a powerful actor in Lebanese politics and a provider of important social services. Not a creature of Iranian and Syrian sponsorship, Hizballah arose to battle Israel’s occupation of south Lebanon from 1982-2000 and, more broadly, to advocate for Lebanon’s historically disenfranchised Shi‘i Muslim community. While it has many political opponents in Lebanon, Hizballah is very much of Lebanon -- a fact that Israel’s military campaign is highlighting.

Scottish Socialist Party upholds interests of Scottish business

03-08-2006 11:19

Scottish nationalism is not a left-wing or anti-imperialist movement, as the SSP maintains. It first emerged as a significant political force only in the late 1960s as a response amongst sections of academia, business and the middle class to their own social concerns.

Lebanon, Syria, Iran & The Coming Imperialist Re-Division of the World

02-08-2006 17:38

London, 1st August 2006

The sheer brutality of the butchery of civilians by Israeli WMD –
bombs and fighter planes provided by the United States – on Lebanon
is firstly a warning to the rest of the world from the United
States: `accept US global domination, or else'; and secondly, it is
the beginning of a serious struggle for all-out control over Middle-
East, Caspian Basin and Central Asian oil and gas. It is not the
puppet Israel but the US itself who sets the tone of this
purposefully brutal war, a war which opens up a qualitative change
in US aggression and inter-imperialist conflict, a period that will
draw the whole world into intensifying horrors and suffering. At the
same time this new period opens a large window for the dramatic re-
appearance of world-wide mass class struggle bringing workers and
youth back into the centre-stage of global politics.
