Bush & Cheney Attack Media to Divert Attention from Latest Revelations about Spy Programs

Kenneth J. Theisen |
On Monday, June 26, 2006 the President and Vice-President in a concerted effort launched political attacks on the New York Times and other media for their exposure of the international bank transfer spying program conducted by the Bush administration. These attacks serve two purposes for the Bush regime. First, they are an attempt to intimidate the media into silence about the regime’s crimes. Second, they are meant to shift the discussion about the illegality of these actions to a discussion of what should be done to media outlets that dare to report such actions.

Hawkins for US Senate: Stop Israeli Attacks on Gaza

Howie Hawkins | The conflict in Israel/Palestine has reached new levels of menace and suffering with the Israeli invasion of Gaza. The Israeli government is intent on inflicting significant suffering on the civilian population, targeting the local infrastructure by destroying the local power plant and three bridges.
The current Israeli attacks on Gaza comes immediately after the Palestinian leadership put forth a peace proposal that includes the recognition of the right of Israel to exist by Hamas, one of the alleged key demands of both the American and Israeli governments. This unfortunately repeats a familiar pattern of disruption of the peace process by the Israeli leadership at key moments. The United States, including its Senate and its junior Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton, has acted disgracefully in this conflict from its earliest days, and bears heavy responsibility, through its extreme, one-sided favoritism of Israel, for its present continuation. more...  1 Comments

Iran War for Dollar Hegemony

Jurgen Wagner | Preventing the Iranian Oil Bourse (IOB) may help explain the extreme aggressiveness of the US toward Iran. Mending our own pockets and recalibrating energy, labor, investment, distribution and security policies for a post-fossil age are more sensible than the Bush doctrine where countries are invaded and colonized for US politico-economic interests. more...  1 Comments

Pentagon report on China highlights danger of nuclear war

John Chan | One sinister aspect of the US Defence Department’s 2006 report on the Chinese military released last month is its discussion of nuclear policy.
Overall, the document entitled “Annual Report to Congress: Military Power of the People’s Republic of China” marked a more aggressive US military stance toward China than in previous years. It identified the Chinese regime as a military rival and highlighted its growing defence spending, particularly its investment in advanced military technology (see: “Pentagon report targets China as a military threat”).
For the first time since its publication began in 2001, the annual report tried to suggest that China is a growing nuclear threat to the US. In the context of the Bush administration’s doctrine of “pre-emptive war”, the shift indicates that the Bush administration and Pentagon are themselves preparing for nuclear war.
According to the Pentagon, the “threat” is an alleged discussion underway in Chinese military circles over an abandonment of China’s longstanding policy of “no-first strike”—that is, no use of nuclear weapons except in response to nuclear attack. more...  0 Comments

To speak of revolution, except in this sense, is merely empty talk. more...  0 Comments

AWOL in Canada – Soldiers Speak Out.

messenger | According to the Pentagon, nearly 6,000 U.S. soldiers are currently listed as deserters, having been AWOL for at least 30 days. It is unknown how many of these soldiers have taken refuge in Canada, but as the war continues this number is sure to increase. Indymedia contributor, FluxRostrum, has recently filmed interviews with three of these soldiers. In the videos, the soldiers tell their story uncensored and provide a view into the reality of the war not presented by corporate media. more...  0 Comments
