an | What is the sane and responsible reaction to an insane and irresponsible system? When the lives of Iraqi’s are being ripped to pieces in the name of “democracy” and “freedom”, when citizens instead of governments become targets for the hatred of the exploited, when the interests of the privileged take absolute precedence over the interests of the rest of us, what is the sane and logical response to this blatant disregard for our individual desires of safety and security? more... 2 Comments
John Catalinotto | From the day he was kidnapped from a Belgrade prison to Scheveningen in The Hague and placed under NATO imprisonment, he carried out, under horribly unequal conditions, a heroic legal and political battle against the people who ordered him there. Like his fellow Balkans political prisoner of the 1930s, Bulgarian Communist Georgi Dmitrov, who successfully defended himself against bogus Nazi charges that he burned the Reichstag, Milosevic waged his own legal defense in the bogus NATO court.
LeiLani Dowell | Perhaps the most insightful poll was released on Jan. 31 by the Program on International Policy Attitudes. Entitled “What the Iraqi Public Wants,” the poll divided the Iraqi population into Kurds, Shia and Sunnis, and shows that 80 percent of all Iraqis polled believe that the “U.S. government plans to have permanent military bases in Iraq.” Seventy-six percent believed that the U.S. would refuse “if the new Iraqi government were to tell the U.S. to withdraw all of its forces within six months.” Eighty-seven percent would approve the government’s endorsing a timeline for U.S. withdrawal, as opposed to only reducing the forces “as the security situation improves.” Almost half of those polled—47 percent—said they approve of attacks on U.S.-led forces in Iraq. more... 0 Comments

John Brown | Because of Exterminist policies like those sold to the world by people like Weisglass, Apartheid Israel now faces intense political pressure on a number of fronts - a hunger strike by Palestinian political prisoners, infighting over Iran policy, and increasing violent repression of peaceful protest against the Apartheid Wall. more... 0 Comments

Arjuna Ahimsananda | As we approach the anniversary day of Rachel Corrie's death, I thought I would write a piece to remind people of her sacrifice in the name of nonviolent social change and House Bill 111. I take my starting point an account of a public event I attended at which the Corrie's were present and which was dedicated to Rachel. The guest of
Walter C. Uhler | Listening to Vice President Cheney and Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad exchange threats of war while both nations hover, like vultures, over the moribund carcass of Iraq's insurgency-racked shotgun democracy, I was reminded of David Low's famous 1939 cartoon, "Rendezvous." Mr. Low, you'll recall, depicted Hitler and Stalin as bloodthirsty tyrants, tipping their hats in salutation while standing over Poland's corpse. Thus, Hitler saluted Stalin: "The scum of the earth I believe?" Stalin replied: "The bloody assassin of the workers, I presume?"

cleaves | The prospect of Iran developing a nuclear capability (which would realistically entail at least a five-year time frame) did not prevent John Bolton, US representative to the UN, stating that a “painful” response would be inflicted on Iran if it failed to comply with UN (American) dictates! Questions of the UN’s independence aside, is the focus on Iran a distraction from the debacle that is Iraq or is the USA following their PNAC strategy with little regard for consequences? more... 0 Comments

Free Mehmet Tarhan Defense Network | Late Thursday evening, Mehmet Tarhan was taken from Sivas military prison --where he was held since April 2005-- to a local recruitment center, where he was released. Mehmet was sentenced to four years in prison in August 2005 for refusing to serve in the military, and was repeatedly beaten and tortured by military personnel. In Turkey, military service is mandatory for all men up to the age of 40. more... 1 Comments

Torsten Wohlert | Iran's president provokes in order to divert. the message seems directed outwards and yet primarily has a domestic political nature. It is unacceptable but no grounds for warmongering.. Ultimative, publically orchestrated pressure on the iranian government reduces the chance for a face-saving solution. more... 0 CommentsPage 47 | Page 45
