Inventing Terror at Home

09-08-2008 17:57

U.S. so-called "intelligence" agencies have always been in search of
enemies, real and imagined. They are abetted in this evil enterprise by
corporate media organs that spread domestic hysteria, and by a Congress that
seems eager to classify all dissent as "homegrown terrorism." The author, a
former congressperson and current presidential candidate on the Green Party
ticket, dissects legislation that would classify as terroristic "the
activities of many organizations of the civil rights era." By such
definitions, "Dr. King's type of resistance to the U.S. version of apartheid
could surely be considered homegrown terrorism."

Israel Aids Georgia in Caspian Oil Pipeline Battle with Russia

08-08-2008 17:08

Once again Israel starts a war that others will have to clean up.

Only a year ago I was speculating that Israel's real agenda might be to trick the US and Russia into a mutually destructive war, leaving Israel and its nuclear weapons in control of the Middle East and its oil.

This is especially interesting contrasted against the recent revelations which support the antiwar movement's contention that the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was about oil & gas pipeline routes from the Caspian Sea Basin.

Damn, I hate being right all the time.

Information Links & Sources for the (short) war in South Ossetia

08-08-2008 16:01

"the first former USSR state inter-state war over the right to statehood"
On any one day there is war somewhere on this planet. Either with a big double U or a little one. But some will be interested in information sources and news resources on the current conflict in South Ossetia because it is the first time Russian troops have engaged since the collapse of the USSR.

First link really should be to the people who invited them to engage not those who provoked them.
