More troops to Iraq = more genocide

30-12-2006 12:35

The new year is set to see more imperial genocide in Iraq as the US increases troop numbers. 61% of the population of Iraq support attacks on the troops of the imperial occupation - things are simply going to get worse, much worse. The number killed by the imperial occupation already dawarfs those killed, with western support, by Saddam. Downing Street and the White House are occupied by genocidal, psycopath, war criminals.

The execution of Saddam Hussein

30-12-2006 05:20

Subject of a kangaroo court
The Iraqi leader was not, however, tried and sentenced under the auspices of a working class tribunal. He was the subject of a kangaroo court established by an occupation regime after the invasion and conquest of Iraq by the United States. In other words, his crimes were judged and the penalty imposed by those guilty of even greater crimes than his own.

Somalia: US Foreign Policy and Gangsterism + Leaked MI6 emails

29-12-2006 21:39

The failed UN/US intervention of 1993 led directly to the triumph of the warlords, who plundered, raped, and murdered their way through the streets of Mogadishu, the Somalian capital, and reduced the country to Mad Max territory. The same deadly chaos - made in the US - now again foments more hate. Tax paid MI6 'helps'...

Basic Espionage/Warfare for Intelligence Agents

29-12-2006 14:53

According to its own mouthpiece, ABC news, the Australian spy agency (ASIO) has embarked on a recruitment drive:

Thursday, December 28, 2006. 11:37am (AEDT)

“The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) is looking to recruit at least 170 people this financial year.

The number of ASIO officers from non-english speaking backgrounds has more than doubled since 2004, and the organisation is looking for people with diverse backgrounds to conduct counter-terrorism and counter-espionage work.

The intelligence organisation spent more than $2 million on recruitment advertising in 2005-6.

The Federal Attorney-General, Phillip Ruddock, says funding for ASIO has also increased considerably.

"I think we have now something of the order of 1,200 staff and that's double the number it had in 2000-2001 and we are continuing with a very active program that will expand the organisation in the near future to reach something in the order of 1,500-1,600 people," he said.

BBC aiding & abetting anti-Muslim pogrom in the UK

28-12-2006 00:47

Photoshopped frame grab from the official Scotland Yard website
Set aside for a moment Sir Ian Blair and his daily race-hate lies paid for by London's longsuffering council tax payers. Every time they say 'suicide bomber' on the news my guts go over. Mostly because I know the newsreaders are just trotting out anonymous military sources, but we are SUPPOSED to feel sick. It's part of a psycological operation to get us to hate Muslims in which the highest level BBC editors and managers are complicit.

Hang Him, hang Him Quick!

27-12-2006 02:15

The puppet judiciary of occupied Iraq today announced that Saddam Hussein would be hanged within 30 days. Saddam is presently being tried for the mass murder of Kurdish villagers but the judiciary insisted that he MUST be executed regardless of any other proceedings. This decision is a ‘just in time’ corporate-style decision – just in time for what the uninformed reader would ask? Just in time to save America from incrimination for supplying the chemical weapons and expertise required to kill the innocent Kurdish villagers – that is the REAL NEWS of the day!

Would saddam's execution solve the Iraqi conflict?

26-12-2006 20:05

The execution of the formaer Iraqi presidant Saddam Hussein is an unjustified and an inhumane verdict due to several un-lawful reasons. It could fuel insurgency all over the Iraq and millions are likely to be killed in civil wars thereafter. It should therefore be stopped and leave him die in his captivity. The USA adminstration should proof its real intention in establishing democracy rather than massacres.

Washington's Game in Turkmenistan

"Naturally, Niyazov was on the same "target list" as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and Saddam Hussein, the other foreign leaders whose only real crime is that they control vital supplies of dwindling resources. This puts them at odds with the American oil giants whose plans to expand their corporate empire throughout Central Asia and the Middle East is now a matter of the public record."
