The "War on Terror" and Africa’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis

04-01-2008 15:25

If Darfur can be classified as a place of genocide, then surely Somalia, which United Nations observers call "the worst humanitarian crisis in Africa," fits the same bill. But the U.S. and its allies are the cause of Somalia's nightmare - and so, the world is largely mute.

Invading Pakistan: An idea whose time has come

03-01-2008 20:16

As usual, the Neocons-Zionists are paying no attention to the consequences of their totalitarian designs. They hardly care if Iraq and Afghanistan are in total chaos and millions of innocent lives have been lost. What is chaos to us is a success to them. Without such a vast turmoil, they believe it is not easy to redraw the maps in the Middle-East [5] (including South Asia) and permanently tame the Muslim world in favour of Israel’s expansionist drive.

29-12-2007 18:17

With Pakistan erupting in violence over the assassination of its former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and amid conflicting accounts as to both the identity of her assassins and even the cause of her death, official Washington and the American mass media have coalesced around a version of events that has been crafted to suit US strategic interests.

A Peace-killing Linkage, De-linkage

26-12-2007 15:12

Linking the “aliyah” to what the Jewish literature has been describing as Eretz Israel or Yisrael HaShleima (Greater Israel) to the Israeli colonial settlement of the Palestinian land, which the Hebrew state occupied in 1967, while at the same time negating the Palestinian Right of Return, is torpedoing whatever prospect is left for a peaceful solution for the Arab – Israeli conflict

Lies, Injustice and the Capitalist Way: We’re on the Highway to Hell—Don’t Stop

24-12-2007 17:29

We “Free World” capitalistic Westerners are a loathsome lot—or to put it more crudely, we suck. When one considers how degenerate we are from a collective standpoint, it is difficult to suppress intense feelings of disgust and contempt.

The Post-Oil Economy: After The Techno-Fix

23-12-2007 20:12

"Even when grappling with the idea of economic disintegration, Americans attempt to cast it in terms of technological or economic progress: eco-villages, sustainable development, energy efficiency and so on. Under the circumstances, such compulsive techno-optimism seems maladaptive." — Dmitry Orlov, "Our Village"

Funding Democracy Or War?

23-12-2007 08:24

The ‘Iran Democracy Fund’ was recently awarded $60 million. There seems to be neither rhyme nor reason to this re-appropriation, especially since more than two dozen Iranian American and human rights groups appealed to Congress to eliminate the program given that the program had backfired, undermining democracy efforts in Iran and leading to wider repression of activists. It therefore begs the question why the United States would deliberately waste tax payers’ money while causing hardship on aspiring democrats in Iran? Perhaps the answer lies in the lead up to the Iraq invasion.

The Africa Command prospect and the partition of Somalia

20-12-2007 08:14

As US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates was recently visiting American forces in Djibouti, the Washington Post was reporting how the Pentagon has been spearheading a seemingly dicey initiative to pressure Washington into recognizing the secessionist northwestern region of Somalia, known as “Somaliland,” as an independent state.

Welcome to Fantasy Air

19-12-2007 14:12

Airlines and the government agencies that oversee them are projecting stunning growth for air travel and air freight over the next couple of decades. That seems to fit with the story of the amazing rise of the Asian economies, particularly China and India. And, it is consistent with the clear-sailing-ahead outlook of several prominent energy forecasters. The U. S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is actually predicting a 1 percent annual drop in the price of aviation fuel between now and 2020.

How the Anglo-American elite shares its 'values'

17-12-2007 18:43

When Prime Minister Gordon Brown spoke recently about his government's devotion to the United States, "founded on the values we share", he was echoing his Foreign Office minister Kim Howells, who was preparing to welcome the Saudi dictator to Britain with effusions of "shared values". The meaning was the same in both cases. The values shared are those of rapacious power and wealth, with democracy and human rights irrelevant, as the bloodbath in Iraq and the suffering of the Palestinians attest, to name only two examples.

Major Corruption

17-12-2007 15:32

John Major has protested that the Tories were not corrupt in the 80s and 90s. These claims will remain unconvincing unless they answer two questions. First, why did they give an apparently unjustifiable £300 million contract to one of the two companies involved in the arms deal illegally linked to the Pergau Dam? Secondly, who gave the tens of millions of pounds needed to fund the Tory party in that period.
