05-07-2008 22:30Congressman Ron Paul has warned millions of radio listeners that the US is heading into a deadly confrontation with Iran, revealing his disbelief at members of Congress who have openly voiced support for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the country. Does this indicate that we can expect more 'terror' attacks both here and in the US?
05-07-2008 19:23Note that the BBC has recently claimed that it "lost" the tapes in which they were caught reporting on the collapse of Tower 7 BEFORE it actually fell.
Sorry, but you simply don't lose tapes of major events, and they are always backed up in the event of damage or loss.
(Note to the BBC: It's already been solved. It was brought down in a controlled demolition, and the evidence proves this. The only questions remaining now are, was it the CIA or the Mossad, and why was an investigation blocked by the Fascists who used this 'useful crisis' to start multiple, illegal wars ... ?)

03-07-2008 19:09Via the corrupt Arroyo regime, Bush/Pentagon is planning deeper intervention in the "killing fields" of its former colony, in the name of the war against "terrorism." But this is bound to resuscitate the Furies of the Filipino-American War of 1899-1902, and arouse the revolutionary energies of 90 million Filipinos against US imperialism and global capital--a future that Washington is not yet prepared to contemplate.

Coming next: the G8 bring on the "Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement" (ACTA).

01-07-2008 12:19This story has been running in the mainstream media, both local and national press, since mother of five Natalie Bracht, left her home in Sunderland on 17th May this year and went on the run.

In January of 2002, the Washington Post ran a story detailing a CIA plan put forward to President Bush shortly after 9/11 by CIA Director George Tenet titled, "Worldwide Attack Matrix," which was "outlining a clandestine anti-terror campaign in 80 countries around the world. What he was ready to propose represented a striking and risky departure for U.S. policy and would give the CIA the broadest and most lethal authority in its history." The plan entailed CIA and Special Forces "covert operations across the globe," and at "the heart of the proposal was a recommendation that the president give the CIA what Tenet labeled "exceptional authorities" to attack and destroy al Qaeda in Afghanistan and the rest of the world." Tenet cited the need for such authority "to allow the agency to operate without restraint -- and he wanted encouragement from the president to take risks." Among the many authorities recommended was the use of "deadly force."
The questions that are being asked all over the world need to be evaluated by independent experts.
