Glowing in the Dark

Questions of the UN’s independence aside, is the focus on Iran a distraction from the debacle that is Iraq or is the USA following their PNAC strategy with little regard for consequences?

09-03-2006 00:32

Deprogramming and Reprogramming
Appearing on the Government television network the Australian Broadcasting Corporation tonight, Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty has proposed a programme for the deprogramming and reprogramming of political radicals, particularly (and at first) where those dangerous idealists pose some manner of immediate threat to the Australian State. Following models now in place in the United States and Indonesia, Keelty suggested compulsory reprogramming programmes could reduce the risk to Australian interests from militants, dissidents, and ideologues.

Interview update on today's law lords appeal ruling that use of section 44 of terrorism act during protests for stop and search is not a violation of the right to peaceful protest since its use did not deter protests and as such was valid, but that section 44 should not be used when police didn't believe the target of the search was likely to be a terrorist... hmmmm.

US has been asking Iran to stabilise Iraq

07-03-2006 19:50

Snow in Baghdad
Jon Snow of Channel Four news is reporting from Iraq this week. Tonight he came out with a great journalistic 'scoop'.

While I realise Jon Snow isn't independent media, he is the closest thing to it regularly permitted on British TV. It is highly significant to lots of issues discussed here ( the occupation, Irans nuclear ambitions, US and UK allegations of Iranian involvement ) and this transcript isn't yet available on the Ch4 website or anywhere else. As this report flies in the face of all other US/UK journalism on the subject and carries serious implications I hope it is allowed to remain here despite its obvious mainstream source..

Autonomous Village Under Siege by Korean Troops

07-03-2006 18:46

Pyeongtaek, South Korea - On March 6th, 2006, South Korean military riot police began an attack on the autonomous village of Daechuri. For over four years, Daechuri and the nearby community of Doduri have defiantly resisted the siezure of their homes and fields for the expansion of an United States Army base. Barracaded inside the elementary school, rice farmers, elderly residents, and peace activists are holding out against sporadic, sometimes intense attacks by Korea's elite military police force. International support is needed to pressure the Korean government to halt its brutal assault.
