The Destabilization of Pakistan

01-01-2008 11:02

Baloch population in pink - In Iran, Pakistan and Southern Afghanistan
This US agenda for Pakistan is similar to that applied throughout the broader Middle East Central Asian region. US strategy, supported by covert intelligence operations, consists in triggering ethnic and religious strife, abetting and financing secessionist movements while also weakening the institutions of the central government.

The broader objective is to fracture the Nation State and redraw the borders of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Two Years Too Many - London Demo - Kader Must Stay

30-12-2007 21:07

Friday, 18 January 2008: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION in support of Abdelkader Belaouni

In London, demonstrate at the Canadian High Commission, west side of Trafalgar Square, at 1pm.

On 1 January 2006 Algerian Abelkader Belaouni (Kader) took refuge in St. Gabriel's Church in Montreal to avoid deportation from Canada. Despite an outpouring of support, he has remained a prisoner in the church ever since, unable to leave for fear of being arrested and deported. That's two years too many!

Anglo-American Ambitions behind the Assassination of Benazir Bhutto

30-12-2007 08:16

It has been known for months that the Bush-Cheney administration and its allies have been manuevering to strengthen their political control of Pakistan, paving the way for the expansion and deepening of the “war on terrorism” across the region. The assassination of Benazir Bhutto does not change this agenda. In fact, it simplifies Bush-Cheney’s options.

Traces of the Authoritarian Personality in the Three Abrahamic Religions (subtit

29-12-2007 21:57

We will examine whether terror is institutionalized in the psychology of some religions—particularly focusing on a sense of justice. There are many interesting and provocative ideas discussed. Arguably, this work is as controversial as it is timely. Such an intelligence estimate, if you will, would not have been written had it not related to many important and critical political issues and crises of our day (particularly as related to dominant “cultural clashes” as so framed by various think-tanks). But this work also significantly relates to political theory, history, criminal justice, jurisprudence, as well as social and political psychology etc.

Creeping Fascism: Lessons From the Past

29-12-2007 12:11

You don’t have to be a Nazi. You can just be, well, a sheep.

In his journal Sebastian Haffner decries what he calls the “sheepish submissiveness” with which the German people reacted to a 9/11-like event, the burning of the German Parliament (Reichstag) on Feb. 27, 1933. Haffner finds it quite telling that none of his acquaintances “saw anything out of the ordinary in the fact that, from then on, one’s telephone would be tapped, one’s letters opened, and one’s desk might be broken into.”

Neocons and the West too quick to blame ‘Al Qaeda’ and ‘terrorists' for Bhutto

28-12-2007 08:49

Whenever turmoil is created in our world, such as assassination and bombing, and the neocons rush to point the finger of blame at ‘al Qaeda’ or some other associated ‘terror’ organisation, one can be reasonably sure that what the world has witnessed is yet another false flag operation perpetrated by a group or groups that have some ulterior, political, or even pecuniary motive or motives for creating such turmoil. And such is the case with the assassination yesterday of Pakistani politician Benazir Bhutto.

27-12-2007 21:09

The Bush administration is preparing to significantly increase US troop levels in Afghanistan in an attempt to quell growing popular hostility to the US and NATO occupying forces.

Police State America - A Look Back and Ahead

26-12-2007 20:27

It's been that way ever since 9/11 with both sides of the aisle complicit with the administration. This article looks back at the record, and year end is a good time to review it. It's hard imagining another as bad with a President defiling the law and once telling Republican colleagues the Constitution is "just a goddamned piece of paper."

26-12-2007 15:17

Lakotah, formally and unilaterally withdraws from all agreements and treaties imposed by the United States Government on the Lakotah People.

Lakotah, and the population therein, have waited for at least 155 years for the United States of America to adhere to the provisions of the above referenced treaties. The continuing violations of these treaties’ terms have resulted in the near annihilation of our people physically, spiritually, and culturally.

The History of Inquisition tells a lot about Good and Evil in the Roman Church.

26-12-2007 13:28

The Inquisition was the worst form of santified cruelty ever visited on earth.
It was sanctioned by the Vatican, and executed by the Dominicans.
No person was safe, even the great astronomer Galileo was excommunicated from the church when he stated that the earth revolved around the sun.
Burnings at the stake may be history, but how many innocent people and their Families have been left hung out to dry.
