Dear Londoners, Please tell Bush to get stuffed!

14-06-2008 22:19

I live 400 miles away in Edinburgh and would love to be there to protest Bush's disgraceful visit. I was there in 2003 for his State visit when the giant statue was toppled in Trafalgar Square. This time I'll be there in spirit. Best of luck to all who get there to tell him he's not welcome.

Bush's Deadly "Diplomacy"

14-06-2008 03:35

The point, of course, is that there is no crisis in need to 'diplomacy', sanctions, or war. This entire phony episode has been fabricated in order to feign another justification for a war that was planned years before Bush was installed to the White House.

Colin Powell, Keep Out

12-06-2008 20:51

Powell: Slated for Vancouver speech.
Colin Powell, George Bush's former secretary of state and previously the general in charge of the slaughter of Iraqi troops in the first Gulf war, is scheduled to speak in Vancouver on June 12. Possibly setting a new standard for hypocrisy, the title of his talk is "Leadership in the 21st Century."

Bush Resurrects a Whopper

12-06-2008 01:59

Hmmm. Where have we heard this before ... ?

"For more than a decade, the United States and other nations have pursued patient and honorable efforts to disarm the Iraqi regime without war. That regime pledged to reveal and destroy all its weapons of mass destruction as a condition for ending the Persian Gulf War in 1991.

Since then, the world has engaged in 12 years of diplomacy. We have passed more than a dozen resolutions in the United Nations Security Council. We have sent hundreds of weapons inspectors to oversee the disarmament of Iraq. Our good faith has not been returned."

Who are the SWP?

11-06-2008 21:25

The SWP (or Swappies as they are commonly known) are a secret branch of the security services designed to both manufacture consent and suppress dissent within the population. A small clique of high level operatives act under a number of guises to ensure that the government is able to maintain the status quo and ensure that popular movements are quickly rendered impotent.

Barack O’Bilderberg: Picking the President

11-06-2008 15:26

Recently, there has been much discussion about Barack Obama having possibly
attended the recent Bilderberg conference in Virginia. This speculation arose
when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sneaked off for a secretive meeting
while in Virginia. As the AP reported, "Reporters traveling with Obama sensed
something might be happening between the pair when they arrived at Dulles
International Airport after an event in Northern Virginia and Obama was not
aboard the airplane. Asked at the time about the Illinois senator's
whereabouts, [Obama spokesman Robert] Gibbs smiled and declined to comment."

Freedom Rider: Obama Obliterates Iran

11-06-2008 13:49

What Israel wants from the Americans, Israel gets - and in spades from Barack Obama. Along with Hillary Clinton and John McCain, Obama bent his knees to the breaking point in pleasing to please the annual conference of AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. AIPAC represents the rightwing politics of a small nation, but the fawning behavior of America's top politicians gave the impression of an Israeli empire, demanding tribute. Obama was generous with the U.S. treasury. "As president I will implement a Memorandum of Understanding that provides $30 billion in assistance to Israel over the next decade," he vowed, earning thirteen rounds of sustained applause.
