South Beirut After a Night of Bombing - Sat Aug 5th - Photo Report

11-08-2006 16:05

This morning Israel announced that it had hit several Hizbollah strongholds in the south of Beirut. That their targets had been carefully selected and were areas where they were storing arms and ammunition. So we went to the neighbourhood of Dhayiya to take a look for ourselves. The last time I saw devastation on this scale I was covering the aftermath of the South Asia Earthquake. Entire blocks have disappeared into piles of rubble and twisted metal. The first and most obvious thing is that aside from a few small shops and work units this was clearly a densely populated residential area. Locals tell us that the buildings destroyed include a mosque, an orphanage and a neighbourhood health clinic. The death toll is unknown this area has been bombed periodically over the last week. How many bodies lie under the rubble is unclear but human remains have a very distinctive smell and the odour is everywhere.

The border with Syria is total chaos. Going into Lebanon is easy, coming out hundreds of cars and lorries are stacked up in a never-ending queue.

Britain’s airline terror plot: Questions that need to be answered

11-08-2006 05:37

The claim that American and British security forces have thwarted a terrorist plot to blow up commercial flights between Britain and the United States should not be accepted uncritically. It is impossible to determine at this point whether or not such an attack was in the offing, although the mass media have, as usual, reported the assertions of the British and American governments as indisputable fact, without bothering to ask for any specific information that would substantiate the official story.

Join the Dots: the 'War on Terror' and the War on Freedom

10-08-2006 17:54

This afternoon, police have announced that are searching homes and businesses across the UK in connection with a plot to blow up planes from the UK to US. This appears to have been timed to coincide with the Home Secretary's demand that we "modify some of our freedoms". Or maybe Reid's speech was timed to coincide with the police announcement. Either way, the intention is the same - to attack the working class.

Attack foiled - how long can this go on?

I'm not saying I don't believe they found anything or had suspicions because it is an accusation I would not disagree with but I do not have the information to make. These sort of things will become a more regular occurance as the west fights its never-ending 'war on terror'.

Hackney Critical Mass (Lebanon Action)

Sick of constant wars being fought over greed, racism and control for the world's dwindling natural resources? Disgusted that the government in this country sits back while a murderous, oppressive state brutally attacks another country, just because the UK government wants to keep its ally in an area it's helping rip apart to guarantee the supply of the last few drops of oil?
