War & Peace
AJLPP-USA | The Philippine government (GRP) on Wednesday rejected demands by Muslim rebels for control over vast swaths of land as peace talks remained at a standstill. Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita conceded that the talks with the Muslim separatist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) “are at a stalemate right now on the issue of territory.”

Thomas Rothschild | Israel also did not intend to strengthen Hezbollah when it initiated the recent war with Lebanon.. In his book The Atomic State (Der Atomstaat), Robert Jungk warned that the possibility of terrorist misuse of nuclear energy could necessitate a police and surveillance state that is not less dangerous than nuclear power itself. Robert Jungk's negative utopia has suddenly become reality. more... 1 Comments

Maria Skouras | On September 17, 2006 at 10 a.m., New Yorkers and tourists anywhere along Fifth Avenue between 8th and 73rd Street encountered demonstrators embracing silence to honor those American soldiers who have perished in Iraq as part of a vigil named “Number the Dead” (hyperlink to http://www.numberthedead.com/).

leef | Perhaps the two most feared words in the English language today are “suicide bomber”; the propaganda machine in the west ensures that these two words continue to strike fear and terror into the hearts of the civilian population. Circumstances occasionally present all of us with unusual opportunities. When a young man who claimed the above distinction wished to make known his story it would have been a dereliction of my profession to refuse the request. The public interest is not served unless both sides of a story are made available. more... 0 Comments

Laban ng Masa (Struggle of the Masses) | The political climate today is similar to 1970-72, when Marcos was preparing for martial law. Unlike Marcos, however, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA) has no clear electoral mandate and she does not have firm control of the military. Unable to buy legitimacy for her illegitimate government, she is performing all sorts of legal tricks to ensure her political survival. One trick she learned from the late dictator is to monkey around with the constitution.
DKucinich | We cannot and must not permit this Administration to build a case for war against Iran on falsehoods and pretext. We have seen similar patterns with the twisting of intelligence to create a war against Iraq and we must not let this happen again. I ask that the Subcommittee invite the DNI to appear immediately before the Committee. It is imperative that our questions be answered in an expeditious manner.
