The Problem With Christmas

05-12-2007 09:58

Christmas - a time for peace, happiness and family; a time to sell vast quantities of seasonal goods, toys and cheap electrical items. What is it that people love about Christmas, and is that being taken away from us for the sake of a retail dream?

Iraq War Funding- Bush Pressuring Democrats

04-12-2007 15:57

The Democrats are now within one year before the 2008 General Election and since the 2006 Mid-Term Election the Democrats have done nothing to fulfill the promises they made to the American people to bring our troops back home. Instead the Democrats have given Bush more money to expand his war and brave soldiers continue to die in a war that began with a lie.

Venezuela's Social Democracy Hits A Speed Bump

04-12-2007 14:16

Hugo Chavez addressed upwards of a half million supporters on the final day of campaigning for constitutional reform on December 1. He was confident of a victory that seemed assured. The turnout was impressive as a sea of red filled Caracas' main Avenida Bolivar boulevard and spilled over into adjourning streets. It dwarfed the November 29 final opposition rally Rupert Murdock's Times online/UK and Fox News estimated at "more than 100,000" ahead of saying "polls predicted an agonizingly close result" that referred only to the corporate-run ones. They turned out to be right.

The cyber guardians of honest journalism

GUARDIANS OF POWER - The Myth of the Liberal Media
What has changed in the way we see the world? For as long as I can remember, the relationship of journalists with power has been hidden behind a bogus objectivity and notions of an "apathetic public" that justify a mantra of "giving the public what they want." What has changed is the public's perception and knowledge. No longer trusting what they read and see and hear, people in western democracies are questioning as never before, particularly via the internet. Why, they ask, is the great majority of news sourced to authority and its vested interests? Why are many journalists the agents of power, not people?

"A Crude War Of Revenge" -- Tariq Ali on Afghanistan

30-11-2007 22:26

The United States is on its way to losing the war in Afghanistan. The eventual defeat will be political not military. Public sentiment is shifting in Europe. The people have had enough. They want to get out. When European troops withdrawal from Afghanistan; NATO will gradually unravel and the Transatlantic Alliance will collapse. That will be a disaster for America. The US will again be isolated by two great oceans. But not by choice. America's days as an empire will be over.

Peter Hain can't be just another dishonest, corrupt or sleazy politician!

30-11-2007 04:58

Peter Hain administrative error bureau

Announcing the many items of news celebrating the success of Mr Hain in getting away by lying.

Mr Hain blames the staff.

He is not to be sullied

He remains above reproach.

How could anyone in their right minds ever even imagine that a man of peter Hain's record as a successful career-maker could be just as corrupt, as dishonest as any other politician?

Here are some of the news items that are accessible at the time of this post.

I say accessible at the time of this post in the expectation that they may get removed under some secret state dicta brought in to protect Mr Hain

Annapolis: US prepares Palestinian civil war, rallies Arab support against Iran

29-11-2007 23:25

There were times when the Annapolis summit looked like a poor production by an amateur dramatics society—fumbled handshakes, translations not working, President Bush mispronouncing Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s name, and Abbas himself dragging along behind Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert like he had forgotten his stage directions. But these gaffes only underscored the fact that this entire production was mounted only in order to conceal the predatory ambitions of the United States in the Middle East.

Recent revelations from the French Voltaire Network (part of 9/11 Truth, France) suggest the Neocon Fascist Madmen plan to sacrifice the eight ships that comprise the US Fifth Fleet in a Gulf Of Tonkin style mock retaliation for a US or Israeli strike on an Iranian reactor. It looks as if this may be the third attempt in the last 12 months by Neocons to create a massive 'incident' to trigger a World War.
