US military and Iraqi deaths soar amidst preparations for major offensive

19-10-2006 10:18

A mockery of Iraqi “democracy,”
The escalating crisis in Iraq, and the American government’s reaction, makes a mockery of Iraqi “democracy,” which has never been anything more than a means through which the occupying forces have sought to solidify their control. Sadr’s organization currently holds 30 seats in the parliament, as well as several cabinet posts. It gained these posts in the much-touted “democratic” elections in 2005. However, this has not stopped American forces from talking openly about destroying the organization.

Dannitt Wins "Wings of Justice" Award.

19-10-2006 10:07

In 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.

19-10-2006 05:18

Ismet Hyseni - Belongs to Glasgow
Ismet and the Hyseni clan were amongst the first asylum seekers to come to Glasgow in 1999. Why, after 7 years, is Ismet still waiting for the right to settle permanently in UK? Why was he taken into detention without justification and in a dawn raid? Why is his future still uncertain? Why is he faced with the worry of being forcibly removed from UK? Ismet has a dream - to be a maths teacher here in UK. Please help him stay in UK so he can fulfill his dream - but importantly, because such a dream is also UK's gain economically and socially.

The Right manipulates the Left...again

18-10-2006 11:59

The 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.

Criminal Paradise is Government

18-10-2006 03:37

The answer is blowing the Constitution and Bill of Rights out the window – the Triads, Mafia, Latino, Cuban groups and various South American drug cartels all have something to learn from Cheney and Bush; in fact, they look positively tame in comparison. When confronted with accusations (and proof) of murder, torture, theft/plunder, illegal surveillance, etc, on levels traditional organised crime could only dream of, what is the recourse of neo-cons? Legislate and change the Law (it’s an ass anyway). Simply legalise activities that were once considered crimes and criminalise those who oppose or disagree! There’s nothing that compares to stealing government – computerised voting, subterfuge, lies, fabricated terrorist threats and THE POWER TO LEGISLATE – it’s just too damn easy!
