A Less than Grand Strategy: NATO's New Vision, The Preemptive Use of Nuclear Wea

29-03-2008 10:28

A few months ago, a report was published entitled "Towards a Grand Strategy for an Uncertain World: Renewing Transatlantic Partnership". It was written by five generals and it proposes a new vision for the NATO alliance and a strengthening of ties between the United States and the European Union. On the whole, the report contains an unabashed support for increased militarism and an arrogant endorsement of continuing Western hegemony throughout the world. The "Western way of life" must be preserved at all costs and those groups and/or nations which pose a threat to Western dominance must be wiped off the face of the earth.

Freedom Rider: Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran

28-03-2008 21:23

But the Bush/Cheney war criminals are intent on an armed assault on Iran before the clock runs out on their terms in office.

Rising Tide "Fossil Fools Day" "Fun Demo" Leamington Spa

28-03-2008 20:45

Roll up, roll up! The climate circus is in town. Confronted with melting ice caps, unprecedented species extinction, droughts and extreme weather, climate change threatens our very survival. The fools at the head of the fossil fuel empire continue to plunder the earth, with the governments as willing court jesters at their side.

They would have us believe that we can escape climate change with techno-fixes, market mechanisms and offset schemes - all technocratic acrobatics that distract us from the truth: the only real solution to climate change is to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

On April 1st, 2008, we're going to turn the tables and show them who the real fools are.
