NATO official: Iran could fire conventional or nuclear missiles into Europe

01-09-2009 18:31

Daily Telegraph, 2007

Echoing the six-month-long intensive propaganda campaign before invading Iraq in 2003, the leading members of the NATO Alliance (US, UK, Germany, France) and Israel are desperately trying to show Iran as a threat, without presenting a shred of evidence.

Now, an anonymous “NATO official” is claiming that Iran is posing a threat not only to Israel, but also to Europe. Even more astonishingly, after 4 years of constant scare-mongering over “Iran’s nuclear threat”, this official is reverting to Clinton administration’s “Iran’s ballistic threat” propaganda.

Middle Class Concentration Climate Camp: Some thoughts

01-09-2009 12:39

Carnival 2009
I went to two mass events last week, Climate Camp on Blackheath and Carnival in Notting Hill. If you want to see diverse then Carnival is where it's at. Not only is it made up of the funny-sounding 'normal' people having a great time together but you get the sense that these people are also a bit more (funny sounding again) 'real' and unselfconscious than the people I found at Climate Camp.

Good news 1: Anselme Noumbiwa back in Tees Valley
"Anselme was released from Brook House IRC at 16:00 yesterday and is back home, exhausted but otherwise in good spirits. Speaking from home this morning he sends his heartfelt thanks to all who have been supporting him over the last week. For the time being he is safe but he is not forgetting those Cameroonians still in detention and facing removal by charter flight. He will be with others trying to organize a demonstration against the charter flight to be held outside Home Office Reporting Centre Dallas Court Manchester this Friday coming."
