Dare to dream beyond the G8: the Resistance doesn’t end June 8

29-01-2007 18:19

But what if we look at the G8 protest not as an end, but as a beginning? If we believe in the success of our plans and activities, it could inspire people to take action long afterwards. We could develop new tactics and new ways of working together. And with this knowledge and inspiration, we don’t go back to our old life, but let resistance bloom all over Europe and whole world next summer and afterwards. United in our belief that we really are “more powerful than they can imagine”.

Bush authorizes shoot-to-kill policy against Iranians in Iraq

29-01-2007 13:48

Troop surge paves way for wider war

The Bush administration has authorized US military forces in Iraq to hunt down and kill Iranian government personnel operating in that country, according to a report that first appeared in the Washington Post last Friday. The newspaper said President Bush authorized the new “kill or capture” program last fall during a meeting with his most senior advisors, which also resulted in the approval of a series of other measures aimed at destabilizing the Iranian regime.

Failed Logic and Rhetoric in the USA

29-01-2007 12:22

Hillary Clinton and the neo-cons have much in common, their policies in relation to a continued presence in Iraq (oil theft) are similar as are their inept, amateurish and transparent attempts at rhetoric. Hillary’s latest offering was a statement to the effect that the Bush regime has dug a “deep hole” in Iraq that would take some time for “us” to emerge from! Notice the tactic of blame laying [political capital] while at the same time ensuring continued presence in Iraq on the basis that “we” would be rectifying all of Bush’s mistakes – very good Hillary, continued neo-colonial occupation and oil appropriation has nothing to do with it! Are Americans so stupid that they no longer recognise horseshit when they see or smell it?

The Coming War Against Iran - Part 14

29-01-2007 00:32

Iran and the US Bases
Bush and Cheney have less than two years to go in their current role and want to go down in the history books as the heroes of the Pax Americana, as the men who managed to conquer the Middle East and its oil, as the men who took full-spectrum dominance seriously, while in their own country booking successes through exorbitant profits for the military-industrial complex and the realization of radical legislation. The prelude was long and the path was full of obstacles, but the goal of a third great war - a war with Iran - is increasingly within sight. Dan Plesch in The Guardian sums it up in one sentence: 'All the signs are that Bush is planning for a neocon-inspired military assault on Iran'.
