US military and Iraqi deaths soar amidst preparations for major offensive

19-10-2006 10:18

A mockery of Iraqi “democracy,”
The escalating crisis in Iraq, and the American government’s reaction, makes a mockery of Iraqi “democracy,” which has never been anything more than a means through which the occupying forces have sought to solidify their control. Sadr’s organization currently holds 30 seats in the parliament, as well as several cabinet posts. It gained these posts in the much-touted “democratic” elections in 2005. However, this has not stopped American forces from talking openly about destroying the organization.

Is there any point in talking about local democracy in London in 2006?

17-10-2006 11:01

Tony Blair is increasing Ken Livingstone's powers. Those may well include
the power to effectively scrap elected local councils in inner city London. Ken Livingstone is
set to become a very happy holder of huge powers. Is it safe to give the maniac Livingstone any more powers?

Israel’s Plan for a Military Strike on Iran

17-10-2006 09:43

NAZARETH, 16 October 2006. The Middle East, and possibly the world, stands on the brink of a terrible conflagration as Israel and the United States prepare to deal with Iran’s alleged ambition to acquire nuclear weapons. Israel, it becomes clearer by the day, wants to use its air force to deliver a knock-out blow against Tehran. It is not known whether it will use conventional weapons or a nuclear warhead in such a strike.

Nuclear Strike on Iran Is Still on the Agenda

17-10-2006 08:11

No nuclear country is likely to intervene when the U.S. uses nuclear weapons against Iran, so there is no military deterrent. The U.S. has now achieved vast nuclear superiority and is about to demonstrate to the world that its $5 trillion nuclear arsenal is not "unusable."

Australian government steps up threats against PNG, Solomon Islands

16-10-2006 20:59

The South Pacific is no exception
The Australian ruling class has always viewed the strategically significant South Pacific as its own sphere of influence and attempted to ensure its domination of the region’s considerable natural resources. With the support of the British Empire before World War II and US imperialism after 1945, successive Australian governments have manoeuvred to marginalise the influence of rival powers. But inter-imperialist antagonisms have intensified throughout the world—most sharply in the Middle East and Central Asia with the eruption of US militarism—and the South Pacific is no exception.

choosing wisely – a short political essay in two parts (and another bit)

15-10-2006 08:17

Our societies were once far less complex and vast. Our leaders lived amongst us and we knew them intimately as individuals. So we chose leaders we knew to be capable of combining compassion, intellect, and common sense, in equal measure – it was a personal judgement based on individual experience.

However, in the modern world 'intellect' is the primary criteria by which this selection is made and the distance between the leaders and the led has increased. Our rulers are now largely divorced from everyday life and everyday concerns and our opportunities for assessing their emotional fitness for office, first hand, are diminished or non-existent.
