19-10-2006 10:07In the UK, General Sir Richard Dannatt is the current chief of the general staff. This past week, he told a British newspaper reporter "that British troops should be brought home 'soon' from Iraq and that their presence was 'exacerbating' tensions. Not only that, but he, in effect, accused the Prime Minister [Tony Blair] of being 'naive' in thinking they could install a liberal democracy in Iraq." He is the recipient of this week's BuzzFlash "Wings of Justice" Award.

18-10-2006 11:59The Armenian genocide of WWI has been talked about in left circles quite a bit lately, much to the delight of reactionary lawmakers trying to whip up anti-Islam sentiment. Robert Fisk, a professional radical journalist, is just one example of the left doing the work of the right by reporting this story has a progressive triumph, since it addresses the issue of holocaust denial – the bigger picture is missed entirely, either because of naivety or underhandedness.
