Iran and the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) conference

03-05-2010 20:43

President Ahmadinejad speaking at the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference
This year's Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference - as with previous years' - promises to be yet another battle between the developing and the nuclear-armed nations. The US insists that the Non-Proliferation Treaty needs to be rewritten so as to place greater limits on what it calls "nuclear weapons proliferation" whilst the developing nations say that the concern over proliferation is being used as a pretext by the US to avoid its own obligations under the same treaty to disarm its own nukes and to share nuclear technology with everyone else.

Threatening Iran Is Wrong

01-05-2010 21:39

The antiwar movement everywhere should be extremely alarmed about the Obama Administration’s declaration in April that Washington can target Iran with nuclear weapons. Although vague “all options are on the table” warnings were also issued under George W. Bush, now the threat of a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran is enshrined in the revised Nuclear Posture Review of the United States.

29-04-2010 15:54

US. nuclear weapon bases in Europe (2008)
Discussions held by the NATO members on the role of nuclear arms in Europe a generation after the end of the Cold War are in line with the Nuclear Posture Review released last month by the U.S. Department of Defense.

Since 1949, NATO’s policy has obligated European member states to adhere to what is called nuclear sharing or nuclear burden sharing; that is, nuclear bombs stationed on bases in Europe are to be delivered by the host nations’ air forces.
Europe will not be free of nuclear arms until NATO is disbanded.

Media Disinformation: Syria Threatens Israel’s Security. One Big Smokescreen

27-04-2010 18:23

In the self-sensationalising world of modern media, some truths are better witnessed than told. Over the past fortnight, major media outlets have converged on Syria’s alleged delivery of scud missiles to the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah. By examining how the story first came to limelight, as well as the manner in which media sources have uncritically covered the story, one can begin to notice the vastly degenerated state of today’s media and its deeply polarising effects.

Urgent: Protest in Defence of Gaza Demonstrators 26/4/10

25-04-2010 10:35

Protest in Defence of Gaza Demonstrators Monday 26 April 9.30am
Isleworth Crown Court, 36 Ridgeway Road, Isleworth TW7 5LP

Yet another young man, who had the strength and courage to take a stand against the collective punishment of 1.5 million people in Gaza during the Gaza bombing last year, is in court on Monday.

Martin Askew, a writer from London, faces a lengthy prison term if the jury find him guilty of violent disorder. Mr Askew was himself brutally attacked by a police sergeant who gave evidence last week saying he "hit him as hard as I could" in the head with his full-body shield. The jury had earlier seen footage of Mr Askew showing peace signs to police lines moments before he was attacked. The police sergeant in question said he "jabbed" Mr Askew because he had been "distracting" police and had to "take him out".

Tony Blair, very close to being indicted for war crimes in Malaysia

24-04-2010 18:22

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair testifying at the Iraq Inquiry, January 2010
While on a speaking engagement in Malaysia organized by "Success Resources Company", former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was the object of an articulate protest movement demanding his indictment for war crimes.

This was no ordinary protest. Tony Blair has been accused of war crimes in a legal initiative led by the country's former Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

Upon entering the main convention hall, Tony Blair was very close to being served with an indictment for war crimes.

While the unfolding events have been acknowledged by the Malaysian press, Tony Blair's visit to Malaysia has passed virtually unnoticed in the United Kingdom. In fact, outside of Malaysia, the issue has not received press coverage.

Deafening silence and complicity of the British media? One would expect that people in Britain would want to know what happened to Tony Blair in Kuala Lumpur.
