Wet and wild, a taste of things to come.

27-06-2007 13:11

Over two weeks ago, the government's chief scientist warned that for the UK, flash floods were likely to be the biggest immediate problem caused by global warming. Sir David King told a committee of MPs that the country would have to prepare for extreme weather such as heat waves and "torrential downpours". Two weeks later, large areas are counting the cost of worst flooding this country has seen for over 50 years.

General Predicts Israel Will Attack Iran, Syria, Hamas, Hezbollah this Summer

26-06-2007 21:59

It is a provocative headline: “Israel braces for July war with up to five enemies.” If we are to believe Israeli military intelligence chief Maj. Gen. Amos Yadlin, this attack will be launched by Iran, Syria, Hizbullah, Hamas and, of course, “al-Qaeda,” the database. “Each of these adversaries is capable of sparking a war in the summer,” Yadlin told the World Tribune. In other words, Israel is capable of attacking one or all of these “adversaries,” as Israel has a notorious history of attacking its neighbors under contrived pretense.

Green Seniors : How To...Blow The Whistle

Think of the last company or organisation you worked for - not the small corner shop or family farm, but the big firm that employs more than a few dozen people and has a turnover of more than a million Dollars / Euros / Pounds / Yuan etc. Most people in industrialised nations have worked for a company like this.

Do you feel loyal to that company?

Lines of Hunger.... East London's answer to Glastonbury 1 O'Clock Sat 23 June07

23-06-2007 10:23

Glastonbury yesterday did not mark a world wide movement for ending poverty. Yet poverty was the theme of the speech given on the same day in the US by John Edwards, one of the Democratic contenders for the office of president there. And today's print edition of the Independent [London UK] is leading with the theme of food scarcity across the globe. With rising population numbers globally and massive immigration of the poverty-affected people towards the 'West and North', poverty is the bigger challenge than any other today...So what is going on in Brick Lane London E1 about it today?

Empire as a Way of Life, Part 9

21-06-2007 22:10


The current imperial slaughter in the Middle East, justified by the "Global War on Terror", that has resulted in at least 600,000 deaths in Iraq, is nothing new — the U.S. Empire has a long and sordid history of genocidal mass murder.

The history of the US imperialism and Empire is the subject of a series of ten monthly seminars from Dr John Marciano, "Empire as a Way of Life". Attached is a recording of the ninth of these seminars and the text upon which it was based. The last seminar has taken place and will be posted to the site when the audio is available.

This seminar, recorded on 15th May 2007 by the L.A. Sound Posse, runs for 44 minutes and includes the discussion following. It has been made available under a Creative Commons license. If this recording is broadcast please let the L.A. Sound Posse know. This recording was originally made available on the A-Infos Radio Project site.

The following text has been reproduced here with the kind permission of Dr John Marciano and he can be contacted at He introduced this series of seminars in the following way:

A fundamental purpose of our meetings is to understand the systemic nature of the U.S. Empire and the economic and military imperialism that is its lifeblood. The historian William Appleman Williams argues that empire became "a way of life" in the U.S., a "combination of patterns of thought and action that, as it becomes habitual and institutionalized, defines the thrust and character of a culture and society." This "way of life" has convinced many U.S. "Americans" they have a right or "manifest destiny" to impose their political and economic policies upon others.

Dr John Marciano is Professor Emeritus, State University of New York at Cortland, where he taught courses on social and historical foundations of education and class, gender and race.

Fred Thompson, Please Go Back to Hollywood

21-06-2007 18:57

“Fred Thompson, who may join the Republican presidential race, said today that the U.S. and its allies should consider a blockade against Iran before military action to curb the nation’s nuclear ambitions,” reports Bloomberg. “Thompson didn’t give details about his view for a possible blockade or discuss whether it should be limited to naval power or extended to cover Iran’s land borders with Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey or Azerbaijan.”
