Victory! MoD Goat Experiments Stopped

06-02-2008 22:27

Today the MoD put out the following statement. We are delighted that these tests have stopped, although we maintain that it is a decision that is 100 years overdue. This also highlights a far wider issue, of repeat tests which are being conducted across the country without review, and which would be halted were they exposed to the public.

Tomorrow: Another Escalation of Gaza Collective Punishment

06-02-2008 20:27

If the Israeli policy makers think for a moment that this siege of Gaza will make Gazan Palestinians renounce Hamas in favor of the notoriously corrupt Fatah, they are making one huge mistake.

Gazan Palestinians do not blame Hamas (which won the last election handily in what observers characterized as a free and fair election).

They blame Israel, period, end of discussion.

But the Israelis are very smart people, and already know that a change of heart, leading Gazan Palestinians to renounce Hamas and embrace Fatah probably won't happen.

Could it be that Israel craves more violence on the part (allegedly) of Hamas as their justification of bombing Gaza to the point where no Gazan Palestinian will be left standing?

06-02-2008 20:07

Interesting how detailed the 'warnings', designed to scare the public, are, yet these same agencies already know they won't be able to stop this? Another attack will not only show Bush/PNAC to be complicit or incompetent, but will expose as pointless everything they've said and done these terrible seven years.

Re Secretary of State for Health Alan Johnson's release on water fluoridation

06-02-2008 19:59

The DoH refuses to acknowledge extensive evidence that the side effects of fluoridation can be so severe that, were it to be classified as a medicinal product (as EC law demands) then it would instantly be withdrawn from the market. In attempting to remedy a small number of defects in a few children's teeth, this 'remedy' will actually cause damage to all of the teeth of half of the children drinking this quack medicne.

Gladio – Death Plan For Democracy

06-02-2008 19:58

"The detention in Istanbul last week of alleged members of a shadowy Turkish ultranationalist group has revived charges that elements within the Turkish security apparatus have long tried to destabilize the country through a campaign of bombings and assassinations. These allegedly include false flag operations that have been attributed to Kurdish separatists and violent Islamists... The Turkish media have claimed that the latest arrests follow intelligence reports that the gang was planning to carry out a series of high level assassinations...what Turks call... deep state has its origins in what are commonly called Gladio operations " - Mass Arrests Expose Operations of Turkey's "Deep State" - By Gareth Jenkins

The use of proxy mercenary forces to terrorize nations into submitting to US political demands has been the cornerstone of American foreign policy since at least the era of the Berlin Wall, and it still is.
