China, Tibet and U.S.-sponsored counterrevolution

02-04-2008 22:52

How could progressive people be on the same side as Bush, the CIA and the ultra-right? How do we explain the paradox of progressive people supporting a movement that is financed and supported by the proponents of the U.S. Empire, as well as by all of the other old European colonial powers that had divided, humiliated and looted China for a full century prior to the 1949 revolution?

Israel Hosting NATO Naval Excercise

02-04-2008 19:02

Forgive me, but where in the NATO mandates or charter does it say anything about its working with Israel against Iran in a potential military confrontation?
And where does that put NATO relative to its already chilly relations with Russia?

The NATO high command had better do some really critical thinking right now.

Because if they don't they just may get suckered into an Israeli "false flag" operation (of course, blamed on Iran), from which there can be no retreat, putting NATO on a military collision course with Russia.

Iran: 3rd US International Crime in the Making

01-04-2008 16:49

If only America had an independent media and an opposition party. If there were a shred of integrity left in American political life, perhaps a third act of naked aggression -- a third war crime under the Nuremberg standard -- by the Bush Regime could be prevented.

Note that, unlike Afghanistan and Iraq, the hand of Israel's Extremists in starting this war is not hidden at all, except perhaps by the media/propaganda factory.

The Tibet Card: Punishing China for its reluctance to impose sanctions on Iran

29-03-2008 14:18

It seems that the US government excels at propaganda for it continues to win over the very people it has betrayed and caused to be killed; buying their trust, it offers a friendship that is only self-serving.

Engaging China in a Tibet uprising would distract or dissuade it from building alliances with Iran. Iran must be kept isolated at all costs

A Less than Grand Strategy: NATO's New Vision, The Preemptive Use of Nuclear Wea

29-03-2008 10:28

A few months ago, a report was published entitled "Towards a Grand Strategy for an Uncertain World: Renewing Transatlantic Partnership". It was written by five generals and it proposes a new vision for the NATO alliance and a strengthening of ties between the United States and the European Union. On the whole, the report contains an unabashed support for increased militarism and an arrogant endorsement of continuing Western hegemony throughout the world. The "Western way of life" must be preserved at all costs and those groups and/or nations which pose a threat to Western dominance must be wiped off the face of the earth.

But the Bush/Cheney war criminals are intent on an armed assault on Iran before the clock runs out on their terms in office. The nearby Saudi Arabians are taking U.S. threats against Iran seriously, holding drills to counter leaking of nuclear material from an American strike. Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are as war-crazed as the Republicans when it comes to Iran.

Worried Just a Bit? Bush Launches Economic 'Shock and Awe' on Iran

27-03-2008 13:02

Although the "Shock and Awe" doctrine became famous after the Pentagon adopted it for the military invasion of Iraq, the doctrine has always had an economic side too. In fact, the authors of this doctrine believed that the economic ruin visited upon a target nation might be more effective than bombs and bullets – largely because they are more invisible, more politically palatable than big-bang extravaganzas.
