21-02-2007 17:16In the Vietnam War protest song "Five to One," Jim Morrison of The Doors sings:
The old get old/And the young get stronger
May take a week/And it may take longer
They got the guns/But we got the numbers
Gonna win, yeah/We're takin' over
21-02-2007 12:48According to its Mission Statement, Notts Indymedia is "committed to offering grassroots... news coverage". Indeed, the editorial guidelines state that "The IMC Collective encourages people and groups to organise horizontally". However, recent changes to the Notts site's editorial guidelines, and the actions of certain members of the collective, suggest that this is not taken seriously.
21-02-2007 11:26Or, what happens when Cowboys don’t shoot straight like they used to…
The frank words of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to the assembled participants of the annual Munich Wehrkunde security conference have unleashed a storm of self-righteous protest from Western media and politicians. A visitor from another planet might have the impression that the Russian President had abruptly decided to launch a provocative confrontation policy with the West reminiscent of the 1943-1991 Cold War.
21-02-2007 10:01Instead of building a diplomatic momentum on the political breakthrough mediated by their Saudi Arabian ally who succeeded in developing an Arab and Palestinian consensus on going along with the U.S.-steered Quartet efforts to revive the deadlocked peace process, the American diplomacy has turned their sponsored Palestinian – Israeli summit meeting in Jerusalem on Monday from a promising event into a missed opportunity.
21-02-2007 03:10Today’s sudden announcement of troop withdrawal by Bush’s poodle, Tony Blair, portends a grim future for Iran. Faced with ruination and possible war crimes trials, the tattered remnants of the coalition of willing criminals will no doubt resort to desperate acts in a futile attempt to fulfil their agenda and create further chaos. Instability and perpetual WAR is the ideology of neo-conservatives – have no doubt that America and/or its few remaining allies (Israel) will soon attack Iran.
21-02-2007 02:42Surveillance video proved the police to be lying about the incident. It appears that this officer was rewarded for covering for the real shooter, who may have worked for an intelligence service, and murdered the electrician who saw something he should not have. You do not empty a clip into someone's head at point-blank range.
The Bush administration will attack Iran as early as spring 2007. The administration is on total war footing. Over the next few months, the administration and its allies and functionaries will create and provoke a pretext that forces a political consensus behind an attack on Iran.

20-02-2007 16:55The Australian Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer tonight made his first ’07 appearance on the popular current affairs program, Lateline. Downer, known locally as a gutless, smug, toff, was clearly on the back foot when confronted with the two principal issues that are decimating the conservative government; participation in the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq and the abandonment of the Australian citizen, David Hicks.
20-02-2007 16:33Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh's revelations that the Israeli government is encouraging Kurdish separatism in Iraq, Iran, and Syria should ring a bell for anyone who has followed the long history of English imperial ambitions.
20-02-2007 03:47Valinoti's Jag Notes also successfully touted Charles Schwab at the time of the London bombings,even getting it to rise on high volume on that same day.Reuters even picked up on the false 'rumor' of a buyout without citing their source - jagnotes.com. But why this free Forbes pr and the jagh scamsters use of it bothers me is now they would purport to be in the passport verification business !
The desperation underpinning these carbon-copy smears suggests that many within the media, as well as Government, understand that the Official Conspiracy Theory is a lie. Their need to run interference, and stifle questions about that day reveal their own lack of faith in the official version.
If they believed otherwise, they would simply produce a program that attempted to support the Official Conspiracy Theory with evidence, something that has never been done in well over five years.
