24-07-2007 09:55It makes certain sense Syria, with its puny military—when stacked up against Israel, armed to the teeth by the United States—and its out-moded Russian tanks and planes, would eventually adopt Hezbollah’s winning strategy, as there is simply no way it can go up against Israel on the battlefield. Naturally, this new development pokes a big hole in the Likudnik and neocon agenda to take out all of Israel’s enemies in turn.
24-07-2007 00:09Can you imagine what would happen if Dr Haneef is a white Anglo-Australian detained in India, accused of trafficking in narcotic drugs? Actually, you don’t have to imagine. The entire Indian justice system will be on trial in Australia, accused of corruption and injustice. In Australia, a Guantanamo Bay justice applied to Dr Haneef even with the presumption of innocence.

23-07-2007 22:46Still no word on the eviction. No word from the alleged owners.
So… We decided to press ahead with events… if we get evicted then yah boo. These are what we came up with… There is room for more events… if you have any ideas get in touch. Seriously. There’s no point just consuming this space, make it happen. Every mini-gig or party, meeting or workshop that happens is a dance of defiance to the profiteering scum that boss this world.

23-07-2007 17:01A press release explaining the decision of Brighton Quakers to join in brighton Pride celebrations in 2007.
Barbara Wilding, now Chief Constable of South Wales Police, told the South Wales Echo: "[Shoot-to-kill is] the most awful title and not one that should ever have been put to that policy. We should have challenged that right from day one."
It's a tough sell, given that the policy is to "identify, locate and neutralise the threat [by] deliver[ing] a critical head shot with 9mm rounds". Another key difference from the normal firearms policy is that a senior officer gives the order to fire, and the marksman must shoot whether or not he sees a threat, a distinction which goes unmentioned in the endless terror-hyping PR pieces, although Police Review had reported this in December 2004: "the Met decided to 'urgently revisit the legal basis' of the anti-terror Operations Kratos and Clydesdale after members of the force's firearms unit laid down their weapons [...] it is understood that they involve senior officers ordering a police marksman to shoot suicide bombers in London [...] the SO19 officers were concerned about their legal position if they were ordered to take a 'head shot' of a suicide bomber."

23-07-2007 10:58With 18 months left in office and his presidency foundering, George Bush is like a cornered animal desperate enough to try anything to survive. Surrounded by a dwindling, but still potent, number of hard liners, this article suggests a disturbing scenario ahead that bodes ill for the nation and world if it happens. It appears the Bush administration's scheme involves changing the subject by scare-mongering that may be followed by staging one or more major home-based terror attacks on the order of 9/11, then waging war with Iran on the phony pretext Tehran threatens US and regional security. Further strikes may also be planned against the tribal areas of Pakistan along with backing Israel's intentions against Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas. These will be ominous developments if they happen as explained above. In an effort to survive and finish out their term in office, George Bush and Dick Cheney may be willing to gamble everything for what, in the end, can't be achieved.
