Skellig Michael: The Denial of History as State Policy

06-11-2006 22:27

The Skelligs Rocks, 8 miles off the coast of Co. Kerry, constitute one of only two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ireland. However, the Office of Public Works (OPW) is currently engaged in reconstruction work there. On the South Peak of Skellig Michael, an altar, dating probably to the ninth century, has been destroyed by unsupervised workmen. In addition, there has been extensive rebuilding carried out on the main complex, which has led to considerable damage to the original structures. The work has proceeded without an Environmental Impact Assessment; while the Department of the Environment and OPW have argued that, because the Skelligs are a national monument (thus covered by the National Monuments Act 2004) and because the current work is part of an ongoing programme of conservation dating back to the 1980’s, neither an EIA nor planning permission is necessary.

Saddam Hussein’s death sentence: a travesty of justice

06-11-2006 18:16

The death sentences handed down yesterday against Saddam Hussein and three other prominent figures in his regime are the outcome of show trial concocted for political purposes. Amid unspeakable atrocities being committed against the people of Iraq every day by the US occupation forces, a hand-picked court has condemned the former Iraqi dictator to die. The very timing of the sentence is an attempt to lift the electoral fortunes of the Republican Party in Tuesday’s congressional elections by energising its right-wing base with the prospect of a high profile legal lynching.

November 11th is Rememberance Day

06-11-2006 17:44

a day to remeber all the military deaths since 1918.


They don't remeber the Iraqis, Palestinians, Afgans, Germans, French, Belgians, Kuwaitis, Kosovans, Serbians, and many, many, many, more civilian casualties who have died in the 300+ wars since 1918.

Over 200 Million people have been slaughtered in Wars around the World, since the "war to end all wars" (WW1)

That's why.

. . . . the recent attempt to backspin the "war" factor involved the odd delay to a less than surprising verdict in the Iraqi dictators courtcase (- the judge- swapped a couple of weeks ago too-), as a strangely conditioned seeming act in the dock - waving koran, shouting against invaders, collaborators, etc - timed for USA wake-up TVnews, tried to pretend that old terrorist tie-in to legitimise the entire mess. .
