BBC aiding & abetting anti-Muslim pogrom in the UK

28-12-2006 00:47

Photoshopped frame grab from the official Scotland Yard website
Set aside for a moment Sir Ian Blair and his daily race-hate lies paid for by London's longsuffering council tax payers. Every time they say 'suicide bomber' on the news my guts go over. Mostly because I know the newsreaders are just trotting out anonymous military sources, but we are SUPPOSED to feel sick. It's part of a psycological operation to get us to hate Muslims in which the highest level BBC editors and managers are complicit.

The Dangerous Double Standard

27-12-2006 22:08

In the early nineties, people hoped for the irrevocable ending of fear and the great peace dividend.. Inequality, poverty and humiliation are causes of terror. The governing fight only the symptoms. The causes of terror are a theme for them.

Steve Pound MP on SOCPA - Radio 4 Christmas Repeal - Vote now!

27-12-2006 09:35

Milan Rai and Maya Evans reading out the names of the dead in Parliament Square
Radio 4 is running a Christmas Repeal listener vote, and the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act (SOCPA) is one of the candidates. Steve Pound, Labour MP, was on the Today programme this morning talking a load of bull about SOCPA, but he was forced to admit that Maya Evans and Milan Rai should not have been convicted under the Act. This jolted me out of my apathy to go and vote and to send a comment to Today (below).

Hang Him, hang Him Quick!

27-12-2006 02:15

The puppet judiciary of occupied Iraq today announced that Saddam Hussein would be hanged within 30 days. Saddam is presently being tried for the mass murder of Kurdish villagers but the judiciary insisted that he MUST be executed regardless of any other proceedings. This decision is a ‘just in time’ corporate-style decision – just in time for what the uninformed reader would ask? Just in time to save America from incrimination for supplying the chemical weapons and expertise required to kill the innocent Kurdish villagers – that is the REAL NEWS of the day!

Would saddam's execution solve the Iraqi conflict?

26-12-2006 20:05

The execution of the formaer Iraqi presidant Saddam Hussein is an unjustified and an inhumane verdict due to several un-lawful reasons. It could fuel insurgency all over the Iraq and millions are likely to be killed in civil wars thereafter. It should therefore be stopped and leave him die in his captivity. The USA adminstration should proof its real intention in establishing democracy rather than massacres.

Washington's Game in Turkmenistan

26-12-2006 12:45

map of Turkmenistan
"Naturally, Niyazov was on the same "target list" as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and Saddam Hussein, the other foreign leaders whose only real crime is that they control vital supplies of dwindling resources. This puts them at odds with the American oil giants whose plans to expand their corporate empire throughout Central Asia and the Middle East is now a matter of the public record."

The Myth of Nuclear Disarmament

25-12-2006 09:19

Nuclear disarmament has become one of the most important elements of safe future and peaceful cooperation between the countries around the world. President Bush and President Vladimir V. Putin signed in 2002 the treaty that calls for each country to cut inventories to between 1,700 and 2,200 warheads by 2012.The treaty outlined the direction for further cooperation in this field, but the USA has found a loophole and are going to turn the treaty to their advantage and to use it to gain their aims.

Inanity for Xmas

25-12-2006 05:41

The arch-conservative Anglican Dean of Sydney's St. Andrews Cathedral, Phil Jensen, has delivered a Christmas message worthy of the most mindless, inane comment that the infamous neo-con war monger and lunatic Donald “uknown knowns” Rumsfeld could have delivered. The Dean stated that “Christmas is about God giving, that God gave the gift of God and the gift of God, is God," (!) Those Australians who imagined that mindless, unqualified statements only issued from American neo-cons be advised, conservative pro-American Evangelicals are alive and very ‘unwell’ in conservative Anglican Sydney.

A Terrible Day for International Diplomacy

24-12-2006 16:05

This is arguably the first time in history of the Security Council that an entire nation is being punished based not on actual violations of international law, but on pure speculation on the part of some powerful countries, regarding its hypothetical future conduct. As Seymour Hersh reported in The New Yorker, both the CIA and the Israeli intelligence have been unable to substantiate any nuclear weapons program in Iran.

Resource warfare intensifies across "Grand Chessboard" and Horn of Africa

24-12-2006 15:32

With the world now one full year off the Peak Oil and Gas cliff (according to work of geologists such as Kenneth Deffeyes), it is no surprise to see geostrategic tensions superheating quickly in several key oil and gas regions, as the world’s superpowers and multinational energy giants (supported by their nation’s militaries and intelligence agencies) intensify their combat over remaining energy supplies.
