Democrats’ historical commitment to the agenda of U.S. imperialism

23-09-2006 16:59

The former Republican strategist-turned-critic Kevin Phillips once called the Democrats the “world’s second-most enthusiastic capitalist party” because of the zeal of the so-called “party of working people” for promoting business-friendly policies.

The same could be said about the Democrats’ support for U.S. imperialism. But “second-most” might be an understatement.

More Evidence “al-Qaeda” is a CIA-ISI Contrivance

23-09-2006 14:29

For every person who looks beyond the official story and gleans the indisputable truth about “al-Qaeda” and various other intelligence contrivances engineered by the Pentagon, CIA, MI-6, Mossad, et al, there are literally millions of people who buy into the official explanation, or rather Brothers Grimm machination—the Muslims, represented by the dead Osama and al-Zarqawi, are out to get us and an incessant “clash of civilizations” is required, with attendant police state and tyranny at home.

Nothing Right

23-09-2006 14:16

The one glaring undeniable fact regarding the Bush administration is the fact that they have failed in ALL their endeavours – in other words they have done nothing right. The latest display of neo-con ineptitudes by John Bolton and Condoleezza Rice regarding their tactical inaction during the conflict in South Lebanon reveals the essential ideology/philosophy of the neo-cons – not only [to], ‘GIVE WAR A CHANCE; but also, WAR IS THE ANSWER’! [Thank you John Lennon.]

Get rid of Warmonger, patsy of capitalist corruption Dictator Tony Blair

23-09-2006 08:07

The war in Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries, and Tony Blair's political policies are only to line his pockets and the pockets of the rich. Protest in Manchester this Saturday and against Labour at their Labour Party conference this week.

The Labour dictators want to stop protests and want to stop democracy. The British Labour Party has thugs and paid police mercenaries to stop the media from seeing protests against the Labour Government. Remember the old Jewish man they bullied at one of their conferences.

New Labour and the Labour Party of Tony Blair are creating a dictatorship.

Kucinich Calls For Hearings on Negroponte’s False And Misleading Report on Iran

22-09-2006 17:12

We cannot and must not permit this Administration to build a case for war against Iran on falsehoods and pretext. We have seen similar patterns with the twisting of intelligence to create a war against Iraq and we must not let this happen again. I ask that the Subcommittee invite the DNI to appear immediately before the Committee. It is imperative that our questions be answered in an expeditious manner.

Two Kinds of International Law

22-09-2006 12:01

In an absurd way, president Bush aslo justified the Iraq war as "self-defense." Lebanon and its population have the same right to security, territorial integrity and inviolable borders.. Israel's right to exist is not a reason for violating the rights of others.

The March to War: Iran Preparing for US Air Attacks

21-09-2006 21:14

British and Australian forces in southern Iraq would deploy with the strategic aim of occupying the Iranian province of Khuzestan and securing its oil. Khuzestan is where most of Iran’s oil fields are located. Meanwhile a naval build-up is developing in the Persian Gulf which also includes the U.S. Coast Guard and the Canadian Navy.

The United States and its partners meanwhile are continuing to marshal and siphon their forces into the Middle East and Afghanistan. Both the United States and Britain have promised troop reductions in Iraq, but are actually increasing their troop levels. It also seems that a muzzle is being placed on Lebanon to stop any attacks on Israel by the presence of troops from member states of NATO.

Syria also seems to be expecting a possible aerial campaign. A vessel sailing to Syria under the flag of Panama, the “Grigorio I,” has been reported to have been stopped off the coast of Cyprus transporting 18 truck-mounted mobile radar systems and three command vehicles for delivery to Syria. This equipment appears to be part of an air defence system.22
