Israel's Bomb, Iran's Pursuit of the Bomb and U.S. War Preparations, part 1

07-02-2007 22:42

Four years ago today, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell played a major role in persuading a gullible, stupefied and craven American news media and public - but not a cynical world - to support the Bush administration's illegal, immoral invasion of Iraq. He did so by presenting a panoply of lies, false statements and exaggerations about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and ties to al Qaeda terrorists.

Yunus Yosfiah, former Indonesian government minister and commander of Kopassus, the elite government sanctioned hit squad functioning as part of the Indonesian military, has been formally identified by an eyewitness as the person who initiated the cold-blooded murder of five Australian journalists in East Timor in 1975. Not mentioned in recent reports is the exact order Yosfiah issued to his troops. Indonesian troops were extremely reluctant to fire on five unarmed Australian non-combatants, who had openly surrendered.

Why the Surge will push us into a War with Iran

06-02-2007 12:14

No one has done more to expand Iran's power in the region than George Bush. Was that what Bush intended?. Or is it merely an unintended consequence of a deeply flawed policy that is destabilizing the region and damaging American interests?. Congress is duty bound to avoid this tragedy.

The Bush administration’s campaign of lies and misinformation against Iran

06-02-2007 10:36

As it prepares for military aggression against Iran, the Bush administration is once again resorting to a concoction of lies, misinformation and half-truths to provide the pretext.

He has since confirmed ordering US troops to “capture or kill” Iranian agents in Iraq.
