Secret NATO Command Bunker - Indymedia Exclusive

NATO Command Bunker Under Our Feet: A Bristol Indymedia Exclusive
To most of us it's just another chain link fence off the road from Bath to
Chippenham, but investigative journalist Duncan Campbell believes the
underground Corsham Computer Centre houses a top-secret and top-level NATO

The real reason America went to war with Iraq

11-11-2003 11:20

In the late 1990s a group of right wing politians and business people got together to found the Project for the New American Century. They set out to map how the United States and its corporations could profit from its sole superpower status. Amongst its plans were regime change in Iraq. When George Bush became president many of these politicians who had set up the PNAC became part of the administration - including Donald Rumsfield (Defence Secretary), Dick Cheney (Vice President) and Paul Wolfowitz (Deputy Defence Secretary).
