9/11 - Five Years Later: The Official Story Falls Apart

20-09-2006 13:33

9/11 - Five Years Later
The following article argues that the 9/11 Truth Movement is making a mistake by concentrating on controlled demolition at the WTC and no plane at the Pentagon: "If the American people really want the truth about 9/11, we’ve got to stop diddling around with theories about maybe a cruise missile hit the Pentagon, or maybe controlled demolition took down the towers. Maybe so, but let’s go there only after we’ve met the real people in flesh and blood, who have suffered to get the truth out."

Houses demolished in Korean resistance to US base expansion

20-09-2006 03:21

For over four years, the Korean villages of Daechuri and Doduri have
defiantly resisted the seizure of their homes and fields for the expansion
of an United States Army base. On September 13 at dawn, 22,000 riot police
invaded and occupied the villages. Police demolition equipment managed to
wipe out 68 empty houses. But the vastly outnumbered villagers and
supporters put up a fierce resistance, and managed to stop the cops from
destroying many of the houses that the Ministry of Defense had threatened
to destroy.

A Dirty Business - Oxford University & the Dogs of War!

20-09-2006 00:17

It’s difficult to imagine Oxford University professors having cosy chats with seasoned mercenaries. It’s even more difficult to believe that there is a strong link between leading Oxford University academics and men who are paid to go to war and whose only loyalty is to their bank accounts.
