25-12-2006 09:19Nuclear disarmament has become one of the most important elements of safe future and peaceful cooperation between the countries around the world. President Bush and President Vladimir V. Putin signed in 2002 the treaty that calls for each country to cut inventories to between 1,700 and 2,200 warheads by 2012.The treaty outlined the direction for further cooperation in this field, but the USA has found a loophole and are going to turn the treaty to their advantage and to use it to gain their aims.
25-12-2006 05:41The arch-conservative Anglican Dean of Sydney's St. Andrews Cathedral, Phil Jensen, has delivered a Christmas message worthy of the most mindless, inane comment that the infamous neo-con war monger and lunatic Donald “uknown knowns” Rumsfeld could have delivered. The Dean stated that “Christmas is about God giving, that God gave the gift of God and the gift of God, is God," (!) Those Australians who imagined that mindless, unqualified statements only issued from American neo-cons be advised, conservative pro-American Evangelicals are alive and very ‘unwell’ in conservative Anglican Sydney.
23-12-2006 21:49Did Litvinenko and Kovtun receive the same wrong information as British detectives? That Polonium is harmless unless ingested?
"On the Health Protection Agency's website the agency says that polonium-210 is "not a radiological hazard as long as it remains outside the body" and that "most traces can be eliminated through hand-washing, washing machines and dishwasher cycles for clothes, plates, etc".
However, the only contact one of the contaminated detectives had with the poison was when he removed items such as clothing from Litvinenko's home. Evidence of the substance was reportedly found in a tea cup at the Millennium Hotel more than a month after Litvinenko was killed and countless washes. Seven bar staff who had minimal contact with Litvinenko all show evidence of exposure." - really bad advice!

22-12-2006 06:47As America faces the most calamitous military misadventure in its history, the administration offers unqualified slogans rather than detailed plans to remedy the horror it created in Iraq. The American mass media is now buzzing with the sound of nothing meaningful. The Bush administration has resorted to contextually meaningless slogans in its efforts to dupe an increasingly sceptical public. The latest inane slogans saturating the airwaves are “win” and “way forward”. Only adolescents and the daft invest meaning in unqualified slogans – shall we test the latest two slogans and attempt to determine the ruse behind the deception?

21-12-2006 14:01The US Department of Defense inspector general was instructed by US Congress last summer to carry out an 'independent investigation' into EDO Corp Director and former CIA man Dennis C Blair's involvement in the F22 multiyear contract, and has found paradoxically that he did breach conflict of interest rules, and yet this did did not affect the Institute for Defense Analyses report that recommended an extension of the F22 programme. Blair resigned as President of IDA and EDO Corp this summer after was revealed he and EDO stood to benefit financially from the contract which the so called independent IDA report recommended.
The New York Times has previously reported that despite the revelations about Blair, and opposition from George W Bush and Donald Rumsfeld to the extended contract for the system, that has taken 22 years to develop, and was intended for outdated Cold War battlefield scenarios, the Pentagon/Lockheed Martin F22 lobby group managed to sway the US Congress to extend the contract. The F22A Raptor is expected to enter active service in the next year and is the US's most expensive military weapon ever developed. Meanwhile the independence of a report by a Pentagon watchdog into a Pentagon preferred military project is obviously open to question.

19-12-2006 12:20WIKIPEDIA CAUGHT FABRICATING INFORMATION ABOUT SEPT 11 PASSENGERS—AND THEN FALSIFYING ITS OWN RECORDS IN AN ATTEMPT TO COVER UP ITS FIRST LIE.
On May 16 2004, I published an article entitled “Media published fake passenger lists for American Airlines flight 11”. The article was revised on Sept 20, 2006. The article revealed that the mainstream media had fabricated passenger lists for the alleged flight American Airlines 11. I say “alleged flight”, because official flight data from the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics indicates that no such flight existed on the day.
