To Build the Impossible Bomb

29-08-2006 08:19

No Muslim in his right mind would attempt what has been claimed, because he would know it can't be done - and, believe me, doing it under any circumstances would require a Muslim in his right mind. At best, the guy simply would kill himself, and do little damage to the plane's toilet. Regardless, nobody would be allowed the opportunity to spend hours in the toilet ... not aboard a jetliner.

Australia: The torture of Jack Thomas

29-08-2006 00:48

desperation to stop the beatings
Given the High Commissioner’s role and the reference to “high places,” there is every indication that the Australian government sanctioned these abuses. What is indisputable is that, acting on its behalf, the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions sought to secure convictions that depended entirely upon the completely unreliable statements that Thomas made in his desperation to stop the beatings, avoid being sent to Guantánamo Bay and be allowed to go home.

The Liquid Bomb Hoax: The Larger Implications

26-08-2006 09:18

The bomb plot political ploy fits the previous political pattern of sacrificing capitalist economic interests to serve domestic political and ideological positions. Foreign policy failures lead to domestic political crimes, just as domestic policy crises lead to aggressive military expansion.

Anti-Deportation Picket in Solihull

26-08-2006 06:09

Like on every last Friday of the past few months, a picket was held yesterday at the immigration reporting centre in Solihull. The 'theme' for this month was "stop racist deportations!" Many of the 'usual faces' could not make it down (was it due to the Climate Change Camp, the newly occupied Cottage Social Centre or, perhaps, summer holidays?), so the turn-up was less than in previous month and the demo less lively. But the 'pitch' still looked crowded as bigger-than-normal numbers of asylum seekers had to sign on on that day due to the Bank Holiday on Monday.

Desperate times – desperate measures

25-08-2006 13:08

One thing is abundantly clear, the empire is in deep shit and like any cornered animal, they are extremely dangerous. The ‘terror alert’ is indicative of just how desperate they are risking even the destruction of the airline industry in order to put the frighteners on the populace. But has it worked? On one level, yes as the events on an aircraft from Spain bound for London reveal, with the xenophobic Brits refusing to travel on the plane with two people who looked “Middle Eastern” onboard.

Free in our Time…

24-08-2006 19:22

While we in this country are subjected to endless coverage of fake bomb plots and a ten year old dead white girl case, the 33 Day War has dramatically altered the Middle East and the World. The slaves of Lebanon took the full wrath of their master and did not blink. This is a powerful turning point in the balance of power and marks the beginning of the end of subjugation.
