12-03-2008 01:12If Admiral William Fallon really was the only man standing between us and a new war with Iran, as Esquire magazine claimed recently -- well, he's gone now.
While it's true that he voiced some disagreement over the timing and tactics of the White House's bellicose approach to Iran, he also made his true opinion of the possibility of an assault on Iran abundantly clear, telling Esquire:
"These guys are ants. When the time comes, you crush them."
12-03-2008 00:50Governence and control of the many by the few is violence. The most extreme case of this is war. On March the 15th 2008 people across the globe will comemorate the fith aniversary of the start of the US and UK's bloody attack on the people of Iraq. Marches across the globe will once again show that the people are against war.
In his latest article for the New Statesman, John Pilger reports from his homeland on Australia's hidden empire - a 'sphere of influence' that stretches from the Aboriginal slums of Sydney to East Timor and Afghanistan. The arrival of a new prime minister, Kevin Rudd, offers important continuity.
11-03-2008 18:29As the UK cost of the Iraq war doubles, the amount that the war has cost the US taxpayer is recalculated by the global economist who was last years "Reith" lecturer, but is at present amongst the experts lending their support to Obama . . . . Where did the spin come from is a SERIOUS question as odd things happen across the world that seem to provoke wars or wreck peace.
We have to stop the wreckers.
PEACE campaigner Daniel Viesnik, 33, from north London questioned the legality of Trident nuclear weapons before Newbury Magistrates’ Court on Friday 7 March as he faced trial on the minor charge of obstructing the highway. The alleged offence involved a peaceful sit-down protest that took place on 27 July 2007 at the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) at Aldermaston  in Berkshire, in the southeast of England, where Britain’s nuclear warheads are manufactured. According to Mr Viesnik, the protest was a statement of his passionate opposition to nuclear weapons in general and to the British Government’s plans to replace or renew Trident.
10-03-2008 12:02The Ministry of Defence has announced a fresh round of depleted uranium weapons testing in south west Scotland.
10-03-2008 02:43Israeli Deputy Defence Minister Matan Vilnai’s much publicised remark last week about Gaza facing a “shoah” -- the Hebrew word for the Holocaust -- was widely assumed to be unpleasant hyperbole about the army’s plans for an imminent full-scale invasion of the Strip.
More significantly, however, his comment offers a disturbing indication of the Israeli army’s longer-term strategy towards the Palestinians in the occupied territories.
09-03-2008 13:22Without an end to the “terrorism” lie, there will be no end to the “war on terrorism."
Given the intensity with which this lie is being wielded by Clinton, McCain and Obama, and with the Anglo-American empire’s very survival at stake, clearly there will be no end to war, no matter who is the next White House occupant.
