20-01-2007 09:19The People's Republic of China has successfully destroyed one of its own satellites with a ground to space ballistic missile – the message was not lost on some superpowers! America has expressed outrage and has marshalled western nations to voice their condemnation and “demand” a full explanation from the Chinese Government.

A good example of this today would be the current hysteria in the UK over the racial vilification of an Indian actress on some inane TV show and ‘coincidentally’, in Australia, the mysterious ‘surfacing’ of an extremist DVD allegedly produced by an Australian Wahhabist Muslim. The mass media of both these nations is saturated by these attention-stealing ‘stories’. The attention of the respective populations has been conveniently diverted away from coalition forces quietly preparing for a nuclear attack on Iran. It could also be argued that the racist card is being utilised to soften western populations to the use of nuclear weapons – after all, unwashed Arabs and Persians are expendable, aren’t they?

17-01-2007 13:22The iron fist of McDonald Douglas protects the soft fist of McDonalds. Militarism represents the dark side of capitalism. We must resist normalization of war and militarization of foreign policy. Culture shock, critical thinking andlove for life and the future can change priorities and free us from fatalism, resignation, helpless-ness and the warrior cult, the bitter fruit of "failed states" (Noam Chomsky).
