01-03-2007 14:26The Government has announced it's plans to hold a brief debate and then a vote on the replacement of Trident, Britain's nuclear weapons system on Wednesday 14 March.
01-03-2007 12:33The ice age man is Maurer's metaphor for the homo oeconomicus who ignores all human feelings.. Maurer shows how empire in history based only on the power of the bayonnet destroyed its own state-supporting middle class and shared values and was consecrated to destruction.. The greed for resources and slaves led to military overreach and ultimately collapse.
01-03-2007 09:52Just two days after Prime Minister Tony Blair announced a reduction in British troops in Iraq, Defence Secretary Des Browne made clear that this was in fact a redeployment of troops to Afghanistan.
01-03-2007 00:37On February 26, 1993, a gray snowy day in Manhattan like the one I write on 14 years later, the FBI and US government failed to stop the van-bomb explosion in the World Trade Center’s basement garage, just as NORAD and the US government failed to stop the airliner blitz on the Twin Towers and Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
01-03-2007 00:01One way to understand the effect of 9/11, in most general terms, is to see that it allowed the agenda developed in the 1990s by neoconservatives to be implemented.
28-02-2007 23:40Iran has given the IAEA inspectors extraordinary access to facilities throughout Iran. They have explained things. They have provided documents. They have done above and beyond what is required by the Nonproliferation Treaty and have demonstrated that their nuclear energy program is a program that is consistent with that which is permitted by the law.

28-02-2007 19:51The BBC's Head of News admits that they lost the tapes of the broadcast that predicted the collapse of WTC7. This is probably one story that the BBC will *not* be reporting on anytime soon.
28-02-2007 17:11Police underestimate numbers at the troops out/no trident rally. Police and media quoted figure of 10,000 reported as nonsense.
28-02-2007 15:12Dear Mrs. Federal Chancellor and EU Council President
We, the undersigned of this open letter are turning to you with the
