Go To Hell Bush!!!

25-05-2004 02:24

European leaders are now under fire by the Bush to bail his ass out of Iraq. The Bush administration is seeking support for a UN resolution for a US led multination security force to uphold order in Iraq. Over sixty years ago the leaders of France and England confronted another madman in Munich. Instead of standing firm they agreed to sell out Czechoslovakia after Hitler assured them that he had no aims for further expansion. However, before the war was over Hitler had conquered all of Europe. Tyrants are never satisfied.

Paxman interviews Chomsky

24-05-2004 09:34

A short interview with Noam Chomsky, including transcript and video stream (Realplayer, low bandwidth). Jeremy Paxman, conducting the interview, is obviously trying to do what he can to hit Chomsky with the "tough questions", in notable contrast to his extremely subservient interview with Tony Blair before the war started...personally, I'd appreciate it if Mr. Paxman would secure another interview with Mr. Blair and ask some real questions this time.

Reports that USUK torturers and killers will grant themselves immunity

23-05-2004 05:16

How many Tim Mcveaghs will come home this time ?
..after the handover. OK, but that will only apply in Iraq. The ringleaders, Bliar and his hangers-on can still be prosecuted at home for the illegal attack and killing of 8,000 or so and maiming of many more Iraqis.
Maybe they think they can move to Iraq.
How can they sleep at night? How can their spouses and families live with them?
How did they become so delusional, insecure and stupid?
