Russian Intelligence leaks date for massive US attack on Iran? 6th April.

27-03-2007 03:38

Operation Bite, it's going to be called. I always wonder how they live with these names - operation hammer, operation explosion - but apparently the logical dislocation from reality works just fine. Hundreds of Iranians are going to die and an entire population will be brought to its knees, in the dust, starving, as their country is dismembered. I don't know how far to trust this information but hopefully a Russian speaker can investigate further.

UNSC Role Change

26-03-2007 23:04

As I watched Iran being hauled in front of the United Nations ‘Security’ Council, a vivid picture conjured up in my mind – my native country Iran, a vulnerable and defenseless beauty being prepared for violation by brutal savages. As she struggles to defend her honor, no one is prepared to come to her aid, save a few. Even her own children, those raised on her soil hope she will be brutally violated. With lust-filled eyes, they hope to fulfill their ambitions on her ravaged ruins, her broken pride.

The Coming War With Iran

26-03-2007 16:49

Why are people not massing in the streets, as they were before the illegal invasion of Iraq? We know the plans are the same. is the Antiwar Movement in denial about what's been plotted, or deflated by the willingness of Fascists to ignore the Popular Will?

People must see the Opposition.

Close Down Dallas Court Reporting Centre! 26 March 2007, 12pm.

26-03-2007 11:46

At 12pm, on Monday 26 March 2007, the North West Asylum Seekers Defence Group (NWASDG) are holding a protest at Dallas Court 'Reporting' Centre in Salford Quays, Manchester, calling for an end to the daily kidnappings of asylum seekers at Dallas Court and for this place of fear to be closed down. In the last 10 months, there have been eight people, that we know of, who have been kidnapped at Dallas Court after going to 'report' and not seen again until they were in a detention centre or deported. This does not include a Congolese lady called Rosetta, who was detained there on 13 March. NWASDG have been mounting protests at Dallas Court since May 2006, and in the last month groups of asylum seekers from Iraq, Libya, DRCongo and Zimbabwe have demonstrated at this place, indicating the growing anger of refugees towards the British Labour government's racist policy of forcing immigrants including families, pregnant women and children, to comply with a repressive sysyem, and then use it as an opportunity to quietly deport them.
