Blair's Faked Border

01-04-2007 11:01

map 1
If one would use a maritime boundary defined by equidistance from the Iraqi and Iranian coastlines, as is commonly done in such cases, the result would be something like this purple line.

David Hicks receives Sentence

31-03-2007 04:54

Notice the use of language -- Australian news radio (12 noon) today broadcast that “convicted terrorist, David Hicks, receives nine month sentence...” – shame on ABC news radio, one can only wonder whether the choice of wording reflected the fundamentalist conservative, evangelical christian values of the Howard-loving producer, who will remain nameless in this report. Unlike American loving evangelical christians, most Australians accept “convictions” as a result of fair trials and due legal process NOT sordid kangaroo court 'determinations'.

Is UK-Iran marine incident part of larger war provocation plan?

31-03-2007 01:02

While Western media coverage has done little beyond echo and embellish Tony Blair’s immediate shrieking and bellicose assertions (“there was no justification whatsoever . . . completely unacceptable, wrong and illegal”), and the predictable Bush administration support for Blair (the White House “fully backs Tony Blair and our allies in Britain”), and the impending political onslaught against Tehran, little if any analysis has been devoted to the context of what has led up to this incident.

The crisis of the Iraqi Turkmen is still persisting in their own lands under the present Kurdish regime who dominates the region by the militia of the two main Kurdish parties KDP and PUK. The human rights of the Turkmen, therefore, are violated and the situation may get worst if it continuous without a fair solution. The European Parliament and all other international organizations are urged to consider our concerns and calls.

In the windy isthmus of Oaxaca, the Spanish Company Iberdrola, together with the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), is mid-way through a massive construction project of thousands of windmills on the lands of poor peasants. The company is clearly not only taking advantage of the winds of the region, but also of the poverty, lack of organization and the stronghold control of the PRI in that area.

American Justice: Hicks Tortured, Rumsfeld Exonerated!

29-03-2007 17:20

The now infamous Donald Rumsfeld has avoided legal responsibility for the extremely controversial ruling he made in December 2002, which effectively allowed the U.S. military to utilise torture methods against their perceived or imagined enemies. An American court ruled that Rumsfeld had no case to answer due principally to the fact that as Secretary of Defence he was IMMUNE from the charges! One Law for you and another for me! If the public ever wondered why Bush, Blair and Howard appear unconcerned over the prospect of war crimes charges, perhaps the Rumsfeld decision sheds some light on the matter.

28-03-2007 12:24

Of course, with an appropriate black flag terrorist event pinned on Iran, this fence sitting 18% and no doubt a large chunk those “somewhat” opposed to attacking Iran, or 19%, will team up to make a majority.
