28-01-2007 03:23Still digesting their recent and ongoing aggressions in the Middle East, the Bush and Israeli regimes now threaten to attack Iran. As these warrior states cast their long shadow across the region, they find themselves aided and abetted by the Security Council, the other major powers, parties of the opposition, and the media.
28-01-2007 00:34The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has moved the hands of the Doomsday Clock two minutes closer to midnight - to 11.55 - I believe it should be closer.
The coalition "United for Peace and Justice" organized the march and pledged to hold more demonstrations in the future.
Attached is an mp3 of an interview with Tod Fletcher, covering the protests at the G8 in Genoa in 2001, 9/11, the 'strategy of tension' (Gladio) and it's morphing into the 'war on terror', which was brodcast by Guns and Butter on 24th January 2007.
27-01-2007 13:07The Independent's leading article is a perfect example of subtle propaganda by the liberal press.The contrast of tone between the first parargraph and the rest of this
'anti-war' article is rather schizophrenic.
27-01-2007 00:17The decision to substantially increase US forces in Iraq is not a makeshift initiative, which emerged in response to the evolving crisis in Iraq. It is part of a carefully formulated NeoCon agenda to increase the size of US forces and reinstate "involuntary" forms of military conscription.
27-01-2007 00:01Fradulent Mexican "president" Felipe Calderon is visiting the UK this Sunday and Monday. His first major act since taking office in December, having stolen the vote, has been to crush the social movement in Oaxaca, which has been mobilising against a corrupt and murderous local governor.

26-01-2007 18:28Naturally, come the election next year, with the American election selectees all lined up neatly in a row like rubber ducks with their Likudnik endorsements in hand, we will hear nothing of this long planned ethnic cleansing campaign, although we will assuredly hear about the threat of Iran, determined to cobble together a nuclear bomb or two and take out Israel in one last suicidal gasp.
26-01-2007 15:51The escalation of US military planning on Iran is only the latest chess move in a six-year push within the Bush Administration to attack Iran, a RAW STORY investigation has found.

25-01-2007 16:50In April 2001 I was invited to Washington, DC, by a group of Republican Congressmen collectively known as the Theme Team. The subject was Iraq. It seems that the Theme Team, responsible for monitoring the ideological pulse of America, was somewhat perturbed that a self-described Republican and former Marine officer, not to mention a former UN weapons inspector, was trash-talking America's Iraq policy. While this sort of action might have been acceptable during the tenure of a Democratic President like Bill Clinton, it was not part of the grand design when it came to the presidency of George W. Bush.
25-01-2007 12:22Newt Gingrich once again climbs up on the soapbox, this time at the Herzliya Conference sponsored by the Institute for Policy and Strategy in Israel. Newt tells us that the “terrorist threats are larger and more formidable than the political system in Israel or the US can cope with,” and of course, following the official fairy tale, this threat is nuclear, never mind Israel and the United States combined have more nukes than any other nation on the planet and have expressed their avid desire to use them, explicitly against Iran.
25-01-2007 12:08There has been a glaring omission in the U.S. media presentation of the Darfur tragedy. The compassion demonstrated, mostly in words, until recently, has not been accompanied by a recognition of U.S. complicity, or at least involvement, in the war which has led to the enormous suffering and loss of life that has been taking place in Darfur for many years.
25-01-2007 11:45Scooter Libby is today on trial for lying to Congress and is blaming his old boss Karl Rove - and indirectly implicating Bush. The 'original lie' was that Saddam was buying uranium from Niger to make WMD. That lie was used to justify the Iraq war and can be traced back to Tony Blair. Tony Blair is now the only person on the planet who has yet to admit it was a lie and this will be a major part of his prosecution WHEN he is tried for war crimes.
