No threat, No attack - but US opens fire in Somalia

09-01-2007 16:35

What in reality happens is the US junta usurping the national resources of Somalia - including oil. Again using the by themselves made 'false flag' waving bogeyman "al Qaeda" as the usual and worn out pretext to cover their crimes against humanity. Don't they know what revenge is? Or do they think everybody else is stupid? Well: most people are not...

09-01-2007 14:18

The world can hardly wait to hear Bush’s new plans for the continued occupation of Iraq. With an official Iraqi death toll exceeding 655,000, social anarchy and failed state status fast approaching, the Bush regime has NOTHING to skite about and no where to go but HOME.

Federalism: A Solution More for Israel than for Iraq

09-01-2007 09:39

Revealing both the double standards of U.S. policies and the propaganda-oriented Israeli advocacy of “minority rights” in the Arab world, the U.S.-allied Iraqi Kurdish and sectarian leaders reacted angrily to James Baker-Lee Hamilton report because it recommended what they perceived as a possible American retract from federalism in Iraq and the Israeli Jews condemned as a catastrophic declaration of war an Israeli Arabs’ “future visions” because those visions could lead to a “federal” Israel.
