Kwang zi | China's President Hu Jintao re-establishes trade links with Africa vowing not to interfere with the sovereign rights of African nations. The net result of this soft approach is African nations clamouring to the Chinese whose trade links with Africa extend thousands of years into the past. Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of large African port cities containing artefacts and trade material from China and Africa. Large amounts of ceramics, ivory, gems, precious metals and a wealth of other artefacts reveal a long history of lively and thriving two-way trade between the two continents. more... 0 Comments

Tom Carter | It is not a revelation that Waters and Woolsey are political impostors, who have made their careers by adapting themselves to the policies of the American ruling elite while conning their constituents with demagogy and empty promises. Nor are the opportunist politics of the forces that dominate United for Peace and Justice a new discovery.
Paul Craig Roberts | "A compelling case can be made that the US and Israel are failed states. Israel allegedly is a democracy, but it is controlled by a minority of Zionist zealots who commit atrocities against Palestinians in order to provoke terrorist acts that are then used to perpetuate the right-wing’s hold on political power. Israel has perfected blowback as a tool of political control. The Israeli state relies entirely on coercion and has no diplomacy. It stands isolated in the world except for the US, which sustains Israel’s existence with money, military weapons, and the US veto in the United Nations. " more... 0 Comments

cleaves | The real war today is for survival; whether the species earns the right to survive or annihilates itself remains to be seen but the money is on annihilation, where it belongs! It is counter-productive to focus on the external manifestations of man’s evolutionary struggle against his dual nature – the WAR today is the final war for the species, it is the last battle of LIFE against DEATH. more... 0 Comments

Mary Nolan/Brooklyn Parents for Peace | Peace advocates repeatedly emphasized the need to use the "power of the purse" to rein in a Chief Executive, who seemed increasingly reckless. A particular concern was the mounting tension with Iran. Would the two Senators support the Byrd amendment, requiring President Bush to seek Congressional authorization before attacking that country? The staff members would make no commitment. Brooklyn Parents for Peace|| The Occupation Project || Voices for Creative Nonviolence more... 1 CommentsPage 118 | Page 116
