The Shanghai Cooperation Organization: Prospects For A Multipolar World

01-06-2009 18:21

"As an earlier quote mentioned, the SCO is composed of six member states and four observers representing a true diversity of cultures, civilizations, histories and political systems, from many of the world's oldest and most venerable traditions to some of its newest nations, from the world's two most populous states to Kyrgyzstan with slightly over five million citizens, and political structures ranging from secular to religious and multi-party to single-party. The internal demographic composition of the ten members and observers, excluding Mongolia, is also a rich tapestry of ethnic, national, linguistic and confessional pluralism and variety.

In additional to calling for a just, rational and peaceful world in a global situation that was little enough of any of the three, the Declaration contained both an appeal and blueprint for the sort of international order required as an antidote to the current one of unipolarity, unilateralism, cutthroat competition, cynical complacency, brute force and war."

Israel lobby commits major blunder in France: tries to silence a comedian

01-06-2009 10:19

Dieudonné M'bala M'bala
Having always enjoyed ridiculing pretty much every segment of French society, French-Cameroonian comedian Dieudonne clearly had never expected the hysterical uproar that his humor would trigger: the huge constellation of French Zionists organizations immediately attacked Dieudonne, suing him for racists comments and suing him for "anti-Semitism" (a criminal offense in France).

This was hardly the first time that the French Zionist mob had decided to crush an outspoken critic of its role in French politics or its unconditional support for the last racist state on the planet: Israel. But this time, the Ziomob miscalculated, badly. Dieudonne began making the accusations of anti-Semitism made against him a central piece of his shows.

UN report on US executions

31-05-2009 00:20

A report this week for the UN on US domestic and overseas executions calls for a national “commission of inquiry” to investigate cases. It estimates the total number of uninvestigated Private Contractor murders in Iraq "to be in the hundreds, perhaps thousands", while obliquely criticising Obamas deceptive aim of “moving forward”. It also points out no one senior in rank to Major has been prosecuted.
