Iran: Former German official says War Imminent

31-05-2008 20:45

The real choice is clear.

It's devastation through an illegal and unnecessary war, or confronting the Extremists in the Knesset, and avoiding this Madness ...

The fact that this man repeats many of the lies peddled by the 'neo-cons', I'm suspicious of his conclusion.

Provocations as Pretexts for Imperial War: From Pearl Harbor to 9/11

31-05-2008 07:06

The long, unending, costly and losing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan undermined international and national support for the Zionist-promoted New American Century project. US militarists and their advisers and ideologues needed to create a new pretext for the US plans to subdue the Middle East and especially to attack Iran . They turned their propaganda campaign on Iran ’s legal non-military nuclear energy program and fabricated evidence of Iran ’s direct military involvement in supporting the Iraqi resistance to US occupation. But is Iran ’s existence a sufficient pretext or will a ‘catastrophic’ incident be necessary?

From The Guardian:

Campaigner jailed for trespass at US radar base

Lindis Percy, the veteran campaigner against US bases in Britain, was yesterday sentenced to one month in jail.

Percy, convicted under the 1994 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act, has been jailed before for her protests.
