Israel Aids Georgia in Caspian Oil Pipeline Battle with Russia

08-08-2008 17:08

Once again Israel starts a war that others will have to clean up.

Only a year ago I was speculating that Israel's real agenda might be to trick the US and Russia into a mutually destructive war, leaving Israel and its nuclear weapons in control of the Middle East and its oil.

This is especially interesting contrasted against the recent revelations which support the antiwar movement's contention that the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was about oil & gas pipeline routes from the Caspian Sea Basin.

Damn, I hate being right all the time.

Letter to police about their abuse of stop and search powers sent on 6 August

08-08-2008 16:47

Police have set up a search regime for every single person visiting the camp that is unknown at any border checkpoint in the world other than Israel / Palestine.

It may be that such a challenge happens yet - if you have had property seized in suspicious circumstances like those outlined below, please contact us

Information Links & Sources for the (short) war in South Ossetia

08-08-2008 16:01

"the first former USSR state inter-state war over the right to statehood"
On any one day there is war somewhere on this planet. Either with a big double U or a little one. But some will be interested in information sources and news resources on the current conflict in South Ossetia because it is the first time Russian troops have engaged since the collapse of the USSR.

First link really should be to the people who invited them to engage not those who provoked them.

As Predicted: Soldiers Filmed Shooting Bound Palestinian Escape Prosecution

08-08-2008 15:55

This is usually what happens in these cases, since Israel, beyond PR, doesn't really care about this behaviour - after all, it preaches the hatred and revisionism responsible for it - and this is part of Israel's program, designed to make life so unbearable for the Palestinians, that they will abandon their fight for justice and resistance, and accept anything Israel offers.
