29-09-2006 15:56The sadists in power can now endulge their sickest fantasies on "enemy combatants" a tern which covers every crime, from smoking spliffs to opposing this legisation. And you thought it was a conspiracy theory! Pah! Eat your heart out, before they do....
29-09-2006 05:41The Pentagon's top brass has moved into second-stage contingency planning for a potential military strike on Iran, one senior intelligence official familiar with the plans tells RAW STORY.
Israeli air forces struck a Palestinian house in Rafah, the army injures an old farmer north of Beit Lahia town in the Gaza Strip, and in the West Bank the army invades several cities and takes prisoners. These stories and more coming up stay tuned.
28-09-2006 15:50The wide gap between U.S. President George W. Bush’s words and deeds vis-à-vis Islam and Muslims doomed to failure his speech at the United Nations on September 19, which could neither appease Muslims nor pacify the ever growing Islamophobia.
28-09-2006 15:41US directed repression of the Afghan people aided by its brutal Northern Alliance regional "warlord" proxies has led to the beginning of a growing insurrection against an intolerable situation that's unsustainable. It has the upper hand in Iraq and is fast becoming more of the same in Afghanistan. It's what always happens because no unwanted occupier is ever accepted by the people it subjugates, especially one whose prime mission is to terrorize the civilian population to pacify it. The mission is doomed to fail as eventually it becomes inefficient, ineffective and people back home no longer will tolerate it. By now it would seem cooler heads in Washington and at the Pentagon would have made some headway convincing the hard line neocons behind this growing misadventure and the out-of-control one in Iraq that it was time to cut losses, pull out, and go another way. Those among them with enough good sense have to realize even the most powerful military in the world has no chance to defeat a determined guerilla force gaining strength because it has most of the people in the country behind it.

Why are his crimes promoted by
militaristic Rupert Murdoch's Fox
Young, naive but loud! A small band of Rhythms of Resistance Manchester sambistas walked right at the entrance of Midlands Hotel (where the labour conference delegates were staying) playing funky tunes and shouting antiwar chants.
One child was killed and at least fourteen residents were injured in an Israeli air strike and 20 residents were taken prisoner by the Israeli army during an invasion to areas east of Khan Younis, while the army continue to attack West Bank cities and taking prisoners. These stories and more coming up stay tuned.

26-09-2006 17:24Only a new type of conflict management can put a stop to the violence in the Middle East.. In 1914 there existed an inherited hostility between Germany and France.. The important question is how the never ending spiral of violence, revenge, allocation of blame and retribution can be broken.
