Oz visit: A Dose of U.S. Delusion from Rice

Kingfisher | Australia experienced a dose of Americana in the form of a visit from (divorced from reality) Condoleezza Rice, who maintains that Iraq is in a better position today than prior to the US invasion! The whole world is aware of the absolute DEBACLE that is Iraq today and the ridiculous claims that were made prior to the invasion and now the absurd excuses from Wolfowitz, Rice and others, that everything will turn out fine in the end. Fairytale explanations do not ‘cut it’ outside the USA, Ms. Rice, what future or ‘end’ did you have in mind? The whole world is aware that you are ‘winging it’ or improvising as you go! But it’s a damn shame that kids and other innocents are dying while you and your criminally inept government lie and deceive. more...  0 Comments

Captain Ahab and his Watery Grave

Michael Jager | The novel Moby Dick appeared to Moltmann and others as the American myth. "The white whale is the symbol of evil and Captain Ahab is the tragic hero. America's messianic dream becomes the tragic myth." May the preacher of holy war motivated only by revenge, greed and power return to the ranch and become salt, light and leaven or a great cowboy! more...  0 Comments

Storming the Bastille and Direct Action

nano | It should now be apparent to all that the usual strategies have proven ineffective against the ultra-right of today. The reasons are clear; the right is playing hard, fast and bold while the opposition is lost in analysis and navel gazing. ‘Storming the Bastille’ may again be required to precipitate change. Demos, alternative media, various forms of dissenting propaganda have all failed to alter the course of events. It would seem that while one side is playing hardball (for keeps) the other is content to fossick on the shores of world-shaping politics. more...  0 Comments
