13-02-2008 20:56In words and deeds, happenings in Iraq are chillingly redolent of Nazi Germany. Neighborhoods walled in and “cleansed” of Sunnis, others of Shias, Christians and Iraq's richness of minorities ... people who have lived together and inter-married since time immemorial.

11-02-2008 17:16The Western media is involved in a diabolical disinformation campaign, the purpose of which is to persuade public opinion that the only way to "create a nuclear free World" is to use nuclear weapons on a preemptive basis, against countries which "threaten our Western Way of Life."

09-02-2008 23:23This is what the consistent escalation of this has been all about. Israel plotted a massive operation, and possible reoccupation, long before the Annapolis conference.
