Another Financial Crisis

09-09-2009 04:19

Governments around the world who were able put large amounts of money into the financial system to avoid a meltdown. This money has mostly ended up being used to pay of banks debts, who have begun to lend money again, and lately some of this money has been used to boost the stock exchange.
As a result Governements now have even larger debts, which is sure to produce another economic collapse in a year or so. Personal debt and bankcruptcies are still at an all time high.

We are watching it happen in the streets. The recurring nightmare has become a grim, new reality for the people of Pakistan.

In the wake of the Afghan Election: NATO Intensifies Military Deployments, Carna

07-09-2009 09:10

In Afghanistan, the U.S. is waging its longest war since that in Vietnam and NATO is fighting its first ground war.

Not, never, willing to acknowledge that the Afghan war is in fact a war, Washington and Brussels from the NATO summit in April until now have attempted to justify their troop buildups in South Asia as motivated primarily by insuring that the second presidential election in Afghanistan since the joint U.S.-NATO invasion of 2001 proceeded uninterrupted. A ruthless counterinsurgency and bombing campaign was thus portrayed as another war for democracy.

Policing at climate camp

06-09-2009 21:47

Ian Caswell, one of the few regular FIT cops to make an appearance at camp
Climate camp was something of a surreal experience after the aggressive policing and constant stop and searches of previous camps. There can be no denying that the public order cops were on the back foot, unable to do anything but smile and facilitate the camp, no matter what sort of provocation came their way. Even a mass outing to Canary Wharf on Friday did nothing to dampen their spirit of ‘facilitation’, and they left the ‘robust policing’ to the hoards of private security in grey suits.

If there's anyone out there who is not already thoroughly cynical about those on the board of directors of the planet, the latest chapter in the saga of the bombing of PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland might just be enough to push them over the edge.

ElBaradei slams Western allegations against Iran and opposes sanctions

04-09-2009 20:21

Dr Mohamed ElBaradei
“Nobody is sitting in Iran today developing nuclear weapons. Tehran doesn’t have an ongoing nuclear weapons program. But somehow, everyone in the West is talking about how Iran’s nuclear program is the greatest threat to the world. In many ways, I think the threat has been hyped."

[Head of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei, interview with the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 1 September 2009]

Why Not Crippling Sanctions for Israel and the US?

02-09-2009 20:32

Iran is developing nuclear energy, which is its right as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Iran’s nuclear energy program is subject to inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which consistently reports that its inspections find no diversion of enriched uranium to a weapons program.

The position taken by Israel, and by Israel’s puppet in Washington, is that Iran must not be allowed to have the rights as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty that every other signatory has, because Iran might divert enriched uranium to a weapons program.

In other words, Israel and the US defy international law by claiming the right to abrogate Iran’s right to develop nuclear energy.

Noam Chomsky Meets with Chavez in Venezuela

29-08-2009 16:02

"Chomsky said the growing disappointment with the Obama administration in the U.S. was predictable because the corporate media marketed Obama's presidential candidacy on the slogan of "Change We Can Believe In" but omitted concrete proposals for effective changes, and the Obama administration has since shown an incapacity to institute such changes."
