12-04-2007 17:05

The crude commercialisation of the Tehran sailors' episode is part of a larger agenda. It is yet another manoeuvre designed to create the atmosphere for imminent military action against Iran.

DJ ARBUTHNOT: Horseshit Road, Westminster Maggots Courts

12-04-2007 11:11

I cordially invite the public to come witness the antics of several very bent judges and the political trials of peaceful individuals.

Friday, April 13, 2007 @ 2:00 p.m. I am listed to be tried as an artist, for exhibiting art. It will be up to the courts to determine whether that act is a serious organised crime and whether I was participating in a "demonstration". Somehow reminds me of Mark Wallinger and his State Britain installation with regards to Mr. Brian W. Haw and his illegally seized artworks i.e. 3 Banksy's amongst gifts of art from around the globe, from all nations - an installation of evidence of genocide and torture, an exhibition of peace and love.

US support for terrorism in Iran

12-04-2007 08:30

It is now a well-known fact that U.S. special operation forces in Iraq have been given the task of kidnapping Iranian members of the diplomatic corps of individuals in Iraq and the countries where U.S. intelligence agents operate freely.

What a respect for human rights! Where are the human rights organizations, such as Amnesty International, to expose and condemn Washington’s routine practice of human rights violations?

Jesus Wouldn't Bomb Anyone

“I will not tire of declaring that if we really want an effective end to violence we must remove the violence that lies at the root of all violence: structural violence, social injustice, exclusion of citizens from the management of the country, repression. All this is what constitutes the primal cause, from which the rest flows naturally.”

-- Archbishop Oscar Romero (1917-1980)

Azerbaijan and the US Sponsored War on Iran

11-04-2007 18:58

US and allied naval deployments are concentrated in the Persian Gulf and the Eastern Mediterranean. The March NATO/US agreement with Baku, while building upon previous military cooperation agreements, specifically reinforces what might be described as a "Northern Front" whereby Azeri military bases including airfields and naval facilities in the Caspian sea would be used by NATO and US forces in the case of US sponsored attacks on Iran.

Under siege, Iran ups the ante

10-04-2007 23:16

For all their apparent grandstanding, the Iranians have been rather astute in defending their legitimate right to a civilian nuclear programme and fuel cycle. By upping the ante every time they come under unreasonable pressure, they have managed to create new facts on the ground. In turn, these facts make it more difficult for Washington to achieve its goals through "peaceful" coercion such as arm-twisting Iran's negotiating partners or imposing sanctions. It is as if, having correctly read America's aggressive military intentions, Iran has decided not to give the Pentagon the luxury of choosing a time for attack best suited to itself. By inducing a premature delivery, Iran hopes the war the U.S. is planning will be stillborn.
