Option Depletion and the Military Response

peptide | Analysts have been aware of the pre-planned sequence of attacks on Iraq and Iran following the invasion of Afghanistan for some time, ‘two down, one to go’ – the plan was conceived years ago. The utilisation of ‘strategic’ nuclear weapons, so-called bunker-busters, in future warfare was also clearly indicated by the US military during the Afghan campaign. The planned attack on Iran incorporating nuclear weapons should not surprise anyone. The USA has proven to the world that it is unable to prevail in sustained conventional warfare. The troops and the nation are simply not up to the task, successful ground combat is now beyond the capability of the USA – China, Russia and other powers have taken note. more...  0 Comments

New York Needs a Commission to Develop Cost-Effective Approaches to Health Care for All; Mass. Plan is Flawed

Mark Dunlea | (State Capitol) Universal health care advocates said today that New York should followed the lead of the State of Massachusetts in taking action to provide quality, affordable health care coverage to all its residents. The groups however said that the Massachusetts program is seriously flawed, focusing more on increasing payments to hospitals and insurance companies rather than on ensuring universal access to quality, affordable health care. The groups called on NYS to join half a dozen other states in creating a Commission on Health Care Coverage to do independent cost-benefit analysis of the various ways NY could provide health care to all New Yorkers. more...  0 Comments

Help Free Marty Tankleff!

SM (and text from | On March 17, 2006, his motion for a retrial was denied by a Suffolk County criminal justice system notorious for
law enforcement and prosecutorial misconduct. Though a parade of credible witnesses, including the gunman's son,
testified on Marty's behalf; though there was no physical evidence tying him to the crime; though there is DNA evidence that the court refuses to test; and though articles in the New York Times and Newsday supported the call for a new trial, Marty remains a victim of Suffolk County injustice. He needs your help.

NYC: Best Place for $100 oil? Maybe...

peakguy | Last week, Sustainlane ranked NYC the #1 place to live in an Oil Crisis. It goes on to highlights many of the ways that cities can be redesigned to be less dependent on automobiles for everyday transportation needs. But I have to point out a few issues not included in their analysis. While I agree the New York is probably a better place to live than the suburbs or exurbs ringing most cities, New York is a very special case for many reasons and will face it's own unique challenges. Local NYC residents may not directly feel the $100 tank of gas in their wallet at the pump, but they will feel it in many other ways. more...  0 Comments
