Iraq Media Analysis

Chris Anderson | Recent events, first in Falluja and now in cities across the Shiite heartland, have blown the American script to smithereens. Iraqis and Americans are no longer reading from the same page. And the American media, at least in the first 24 hours since the Shiite uprising began, is groping in the dark for a new narrative. more...  5 Comments

Clash of Civilizations?

AK Gupta | After September 11 commentators rushed to deny that the attacks signified a war between cultures and religions. And they were right, at least then. Grand historical conflicts don’t start overnight; they are a step-by-step descent into the abyss that one is only aware of when the last light of reason is extinguished. more...  4 Comments

Depleted Uranium - Mystery in Transport

- | The United States military does not want civilian populations to know how and when depleted uranium (DU) munitions are being shipped through their communities for fear of “unnecessary public concern about the radiation risks associated with DU munitions.” Normally this type of shipment would be labeled with both Department of Transportation (DOT) “Radioactive” and “Explosive” placards. Branches of the U.S. military, however, have a special Department of Transportation exemption, DOT-E 9649, which allows them to ship DU munitions without the “Radioactive” placard.1 The exemption must be renewed every few years by the DOT and the Military Traffic Management Command.2 more...  1 Comments

UN To NYPD: Stop Human Rights Violations

IMC | In recently released public summaries of letters sent to the United States Government in 2003, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights expressed concern about violations of the human rights of peaceful anti-war demonstrators by the NYPD and Oakland PD.

The annual report includes summaries of letters sent to numerous human right violators including the Governments of China, Uganda, Bosnia and Herzogovina, Iran and Colombia.

The letters expressed noted that Oakland and New York City Police Departments, in dealing with peaceful demonstrators, used excessive force (involving pepper spray, teargas, wooden and shot filled bullets, concussion or "sting" grenades, police horses, batons), surveillance, prevention of a march, disruption of a rally, mass arrests, interrogation, detention in poor conditions, and denial of access to legal advice. The report largely criticizes NYPD behavior before and during the February 15 2003 protest and the Oakland shootings on April 7, 2003.
