Radical Romance Mystery Solved

11-10-2006 07:44

Romance in politics is rare, especially one sector of public activities to another. Recent ones like Rhoderick Gates in the Labour Party campaigner and the actor Daniel Radcliffe continues to grab headlines, as it did in Culture Now in London, gossip magazines like Young Turks in Turkey, and brawls with The Sun are certainly big when there are more important issues to cover than romance between two public figures.

According to the experts the Bush administration’s ‘war on terror’ has resulted in more global terror and more turmoil in the nations it was intended to rescue from terror. So the war’s latest byproduct, a nuclear arms race among ‘rogue nations,’ should surprise no one.
Once the American war machine had pointed the finger of ‘I will get you’ on the ‘Axis of Evil’ (Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Syria) every small state not included on Washington’s ‘friendly nation’ list must have started to search for a way to deter American bombers devastating their country.

Never Trust A Celebrity Philanthropist

Air Transport Emissions
It seems a bit harsh to be saying this, but I don’t trust anyone who publicises the donation of money. Not to say there is anything wrong with having money, or giving it away, so long as the recipient is happy to receive it, and the giver isn’t about to launch an attack on the fabric of our natural environment.

The issue I have is when the giver wants everyone to know about it.

Sir Ian Blair Says New Terror Attack Could Lead to Internment

10-10-2006 18:42

Last week, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner addressed the Reform Club Media Group. Nothing like the 'establishment' sticking together is there? The meeting was conducted under Chatham House rules, which mean that no one attending is supposed to divulge what is said. But one person present was so appalled at Sir Ian's attitude and authoritarian stance that he has revealed to me an alarming - and seemingly off the cuff - remark made by Sir Ian at the event.

The Muslim Problem

10-10-2006 15:14

Muslims, it seems, are a problem. No, I should rephrase that. Muslims, it seems, are perhaps the problem of our times. Or at least one might be forgiven for believing that after the last few weeks and months. We've just had Jack Straw, the Leader of the House of Commons, and former Foreign and Home Secretary, tell us that Muslim women who cover the face with a veil or niqab make community relations "more difficult." And this is because, he says, concealing the face is "a visible statement of separation and difference."

UK opposes release of British detainees at Guantánamo

10-10-2006 14:30

Documents obtained by the Guardian newspaper show that the Blair government is complicit in the ongoing detention of some 10 former British residents detained without trial in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. This is despite an admission by the Home Office that “they do not pose a sufficient threat” to justify even keeping them under house arrest.

US vs. Iran - Is An Attack Inevitable?

10-10-2006 10:37

Following is an article about the looming US (and Israel? and UK?) attack on Iran by Dr. Abbas Bakhtiar. This is a story being ignored by the mainstream media -- most people seem to be in denial that this war could be launched later this month.

The possibility that the Republicians might loose control of Congress on 7th November in the US and their talk of an October suprise to ensure that this doesn't happen has led to much speculation, including the possibility that a 2nd 9/11 (for example a dirty bomb or nuke being let off somewhere like NYC -- NYC is the only US city to have had a radiation mapping exercise conducted and this data is just what you need for doing a before and after study of the effects of a nuke...) might be set up and then used to justify a massive shock and awe bombing campaign against Iran that could include the use of nukes. Of course this is speculation -- there is nothing I'd like better than to be wrong.

If this were to happen before 7th November the election might not even happen and if it did it could ensure a victory for the Republicians (though things don't always go as they plan, eg the election in Spain after the Madrid bombings).

Australian government demands hand-over of Solomon Islands’ attorney general

09-10-2006 21:51

A major expansion of the military
This unanimous support indicates what is at stake in the Solomons for the Australian ruling elite. Howard recently announced a major expansion of the military and specifically listed the PNG, Vanuatu and Fiji as potential targets for Australian intervention. In this context, a successful challenge to Australia’s grip over the Solomons would prove disastrous.

Australian attorney-general insists sleep deprivation is not torture

09-10-2006 21:17

Ruddock told the ABC he was concerned about Washington’s new legislation, which restablishes military kangaroo courts and gives President Bush exclusive power to interpret the Geneva Conventions and declare virtually anyone an enemy combattant, incarcerate them and suspend their basic legal rights, including habeas corpus. According to the attorney general, however, the new law is too restrictive and “may well limit the capacity of intelligence organisations in the future.”

"Cold War Shivers": War Preparations in the Middle East and Central Asia

07-10-2006 22:43

Members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Observer States includin

It is essential that people across America and around the World take cognizance of the dangers of a Middle East war directed against Iran and act decisively to challenge the US military agenda and reverse the tide of war.

The World is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US has embarked on a military adventure, "a long war", which threatens the future of humanity.

This article documents recent developments, focusing on military deployment and preparations in the event of a US led war on Iran. This text follows a number of earlier reports published by Global Research pertaining to the War on Iran (See Iran dossier, Nuclear War dossier, Lebanon dossier )

Condoleezza Rice evades charges over 9/11

The fixation of both official Washington and the mainstream media on the emails of Congressman Mark Foley (Republican of Florida) and the Republican House leadership’s cover-up of his pursuit of teenage male pages has served to divert public attention from a far more significant cover-up of a far greater crime.

Britain: Jack Straw’s anti-Muslim provocation

07-10-2006 13:23

Attempts to whip up anti-Muslim prejudice
These considerations are what shapes his own intervention and animate the new-found preoccupation of a host of former liberals and social democrats with the oppression of women by Islam—figures who one must anticipate will now come forward in Straw’s defence In contrast, working people must oppose all such attempts to whip up anti-Muslim prejudice and any and all proposals to curtail religious and civil liberties. This is an essential component of the struggle against militarism and war.

Police recover largest haul of bomb making chemicals

06-10-2006 20:11

Unfortunately I can believe this.
What "police are believed to be the largest haul ever found [of bomb making chemicals] at a house in this country" seems to have had no space at all on mainstream media other than on this local paper.
Easy to see the difference with recently media hyped police operations. No middle eastern people this time but 2 surely white Brits with established BNP connections.
