We are ALL burmese, in this little 2007 world .Cyberslavery. . . . then you?

27-09-2007 12:38

In london, the address of the burmese embassy is necessary to discover it . . . . this lunchtime the present day "representation" had hidden their flag.
Shame, or cowardice . . . . people are choosing against the cyberslavery put upon them in test case new deliberate designs of "repression-cities", as much a test for the world as was the nazi slave labour deathcamps - or peenemunde. Could global institutions have had pride in their actions if the retort to, say, the attempts at a breakout in Sobibor have limits of stopping the passports or overseas credit of the Auschwitz troops? A town a week is destroyed as we "wait."

Joe’s Borrowed Idea: Split Iraq Up into Three Pieces

27-09-2007 08:31

It is, to say the least, a predictable outcome, one that dovetails nicely with the neocon master plan. “US lawmakers voted Wednesday to split Iraq into a loose federation of sectarian-based regions and urged President George W Bush to press Iraqi leaders to agree,” reports Monsters and Critics.

Iran’s Impending Destruction: Is Ahmadinejad Clueless?

27-09-2007 00:28

Either way—if Ahmadinejad is sincerely clueless or an agent working for British-U.S.-Israeli intelligence—it is truly astounding the president of Iran glossed over what should be considered, with a heaping dose of trepidation, the brutal and criminal shock and awe reduction of his country to a “failed” Neolithic condition.

Cleaning House : the dodgy functionaries in whitehall . . . .etc

26-09-2007 16:07

. . . . the people that leave MOD procurement to join US-based arms corporations seem to have got very little publicity in comparison to the MPs or political appointees that put a foot wrong to the tune of getting a couple of extra trips out of expenses . . . . the "rotten burrough" of westminster that threw poor people out of theit homes to install influential friends was checked out, but this creeping petty criminal coup of " you scratch my back i scratch yours" is asking for much sharper enquiries - despite the large amount of sacrificial patsies it has got waiting, "pseudo-group" omertas, or old pre-"cyberbullying" scams it twists.

Upsidedown begging bowls! Spititual traditions reject the "Muggers" Tithe: Burma

26-09-2007 15:05

recent NEWS . . . . monks take casualties to shield people, to protect future free thought, to keep the integrity of parents, mothers mothers, fathers fathers, to break the "western" media shrug-blockade.

Demos at embassy - easy access - loads of tubes, buses etc,(google Burma Embassy location)
Pressure good - of serious sorts - see comment with "time for movement against war to evolve"-
"voice of democracy burma" also has background.
"boom, boom" - people ARE dying - but - ACT.
Open door - push. Despite the "media-opinion-influencers" doomgloom-crusade that is something we should all expect, then see past, this IS a moment for burma, etc. In burma the armed forces high-ups must have a mix of opinions about all this - they did ALLOW that democratic election in recent times - despite reneging upon its results - so if they are encouraged to listen - forced to listen - to people saying they should come to some accomodation with the democratic forces - but allowed a way out of the current-dictatorship situation too, a responsible, bounce-back global popular bit of effort, with imagination, acceleration, etc, then GLOBAL peoplepower should work.
Without ruling out actual armed intervention, with the actual or tacit support of china - perhaps with the involvement of china too - of a multi-national force - several different SHARP economic measures are possible that dont harm the poulation, or are so fast in effect, that , say, with fooddrops etc the iraq disaster of almost deliberately stupid economic measures could teach us how to do it a different way. But all the actual gravytrain corporate types in the west - or "offshore tax havens" as most are these days - shouldnt get away with the usual distractions this time - or the twisting of the news against china for some old "coldwar replay" either.
I Expect the media spin to show a "threpressionwastotalitsallover" - but, in actual fact - its "boomboom - they've blown the bloody doors off!"
That media blockade is extinct.

If you are in the media, or a spiritual tradition, different religion, different culture or different people - these shots might get used as a "media-influencers attempt at a full stop" or you might see it as a sort of trumpet intro for the new "drum'n'bass" of a quickening, STRENGTHENING pulse - with a grin that reflect strength back to you - that reminds you of what it is to act WITH the good spirits, the good intentions of community- of all people - if we are to have a free future - or a future at all.
