02-04-2008 22:52How could progressive people be on the same side as Bush, the CIA and the ultra-right? How do we explain the paradox of progressive people supporting a movement that is financed and supported by the proponents of the U.S. Empire, as well as by all of the other old European colonial powers that had divided, humiliated and looted China for a full century prior to the 1949 revolution?
02-04-2008 19:02Forgive me, but where in the NATO mandates or charter does it say anything about its working with Israel against Iran in a potential military confrontation?
And where does that put NATO relative to its already chilly relations with Russia?
The NATO high command had better do some really critical thinking right now.
Because if they don't they just may get suckered into an Israeli "false flag" operation (of course, blamed on Iran), from which there can be no retreat, putting NATO on a military collision course with Russia.

01-04-2008 16:49If only America had an independent media and an opposition party. If there were a shred of integrity left in American political life, perhaps a third act of naked aggression -- a third war crime under the Nuremberg standard -- by the Bush Regime could be prevented.
Note that, unlike Afghanistan and Iraq, the hand of Israel's Extremists in starting this war is not hidden at all, except perhaps by the media/propaganda factory.

Peace, Propaganda, and the Promised Land
29-03-2008 14:18It seems that the US government excels at propaganda for it continues to win over the very people it has betrayed and caused to be killed; buying their trust, it offers a friendship that is only self-serving.
Engaging China in a Tibet uprising would distract or dissuade it from building alliances with Iran. Iran must be kept isolated at all costs
29-03-2008 10:28A few months ago, a report was published entitled "Towards a Grand Strategy for an Uncertain World: Renewing Transatlantic Partnership". It was written by five generals and it proposes a new vision for the NATO alliance and a strengthening of ties between the United States and the European Union. On the whole, the report contains an unabashed support for increased militarism and an arrogant endorsement of continuing Western hegemony throughout the world. The "Western way of life" must be preserved at all costs and those groups and/or nations which pose a threat to Western dominance must be wiped off the face of the earth.

28-03-2008 21:23But the Bush/Cheney war criminals are intent on an armed assault on Iran before the clock runs out on their terms in office. The nearby Saudi Arabians are taking U.S. threats against Iran seriously, holding drills to counter leaking of nuclear material from an American strike. Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are as war-crazed as the Republicans when it comes to Iran.
28-03-2008 18:21Tony Blair is giving a lecture on "Faith and Globalisation" on Thursday 3 April at Westminster Cathedral. The publicity for his speech makes no mention of Iraq or Afghanistan. Join Stop the War to ensure that, as Blair speaks, the voice of the anti-war majority in this country is heard loud and clear as every hypocritical word is accompanied by a wall of sound outside the Cathedral.
People from Nottingham, Leicester and Lougborough travelled to Aldermaston Nuclear Weapons Establishment near Reading to join nearly 5000 others in marking the 50th anniversary of the first march to Aldermaston. Riseup! Radio went along and asked the question: why ARE nuclear weapons still the issue?
27-03-2008 13:02Although the "Shock and Awe" doctrine became famous after the Pentagon adopted it for the military invasion of Iraq, the doctrine has always had an economic side too. In fact, the authors of this doctrine believed that the economic ruin visited upon a target nation might be more effective than bombs and bullets – largely because they are more invisible, more politically palatable than big-bang extravaganzas.
