The Myth of Nuclear Disarmament

25-12-2006 09:19

Nuclear 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.

Inanity for Xmas

25-12-2006 05:41

The 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.

Berezovsky gang caught smuggling radioactive material?

23-12-2006 21:49

Did 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!

Unqualified Slogans: “Win” and “Way Forward”

22-12-2006 06:47

As 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?

EDO Corp Director Found Guilty By US Inspector Of Conflict Of Interest

21-12-2006 14:01

The 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.

Pot Cultivation in Today’s America

21-12-2006 03:48

It’s official, marijuana represents the USA’s most lucrative locally grown product – at $200 billion/annum, corn, wheat and potatoes are chicken feed. While U.S. borders seep various powdered imports it’s good ol’ home grown pot that makes the bankers smile. The USA is drowning in contraband and the negative social ramifications of the neo-PROHIBITION of unenlightened conservative beliefs – when will they ever learn?

Pentagon report paints grim picture for US in Iraq

20-12-2006 10:02

A report issued by the Pentagon Monday confirms the disastrous state of the American project for the conquest of Iraq and transformation of the oil-rich country into a semi-colony of the United States.

The armed resistance to the US occupation continues to swell, with both insurgent attacks on US forces and American casualties growing at a double-digit rate. According to the quarterly report, mandated by Congress, the number of attacks carried out by insurgents has risen by 22 percent over the past three months, while US casualties have risen 32 percent.

British Report on the Assassination of Pierre Gemayel

20-12-2006 00:49

report's cover page
An Arabic website, run by Syrian dissident journalist Nizar Nayouf, has exclusively published the cover page of a confidential report by the British embassy in Beirut, of which a copy was sent (or leaked) to someone in the NATO, on the assassination of Lebanese minister Pierre Gemayel. It suggests that the assassination, along with that of Samir Qassir, Gebran Twani and George Hawi earlier, were carried out by Lebanese militants affiliated with Druze leader Walid Junblat and Christian leader Samir Geagea, and not by the Syrian government or its Lebanese agents. Both groups, the reports further reveals, have been receiving military training by Ameriacn (and possibly Israeli) trainers in Jordan since November 2005. Furthermore, the report's sources think "the killers' motive" must be seen in light of an "agreement between the Sunni leader Sa'd Hariri and ex-president Amin Gemayel to nominate the latter's son, Pierre Gemayel, to succeed president Emil Lahoud next year. The report summarises that the crime was committed "mostly for regaining the initiative by the 14 March alliance and protecting PM Fouad Saniora's govermant from collapse."

Falsified Records Aid 9/11 Coverup

19-12-2006 12:20


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.
