21-10-2005 01:28Analysts and historians would recall the last time ’bogeyman’ hysteria gripped an unwary public; USA of the nineteen fifties and McCarthyism with the ‘red under the bed threat’ is now one of history's embarrassing moments. Joe McCarthy, puppet of ultra-right forces in the US, ruined numerous careers and lives – for nothing! The degree of 'threat’ attributed to the 'reds' proved to be wildly exaggerated, more a product of excited 'judgement' or shared delusion than accurate assessment. US intelligence agencies and ultra-right militarists fell victim to their own propaganda and the (dis)information warfare waged at the time.
18-10-2005 17:29I suggest that you check out Seymour Hersh's recent work for the New Yorker. He details the US/UK Black Ops which are going on right now in Iran, from the surrounding 'Stans, not to mention those into Syria from Iraq.
I guess they had to find something to do with the BILLIONS they plundered in Iraq & Afghanistan, and the profits of the Afghan heroin production booming under their supervision.
17-10-2005 06:01Okay, the Spooks' comments aside, I think that there are enough people making such claims that this bears some serious investigation.

10-10-2005 23:35This week the Government is likely to bring forward a new Terrorism Bill which will have serious and frightening implications for free speech and allow for the detention of suspects for three months prior to charge.
09-10-2005 13:09This will be shown on Thursday 13 October, in the Panel Room, Oxford Town Hall, followed by a discussion.
09-10-2005 05:02So they weren't Irish, and the media always shouts "Arab/Muslim" when that group is targeted. There is only one group the media consistently shies away from identifying, the ones driving this Madness. But I'll wait and see how this develops ...
06-10-2005 23:35'Glorifying' terror plan revised - a victory for civil rights or part of the plan
A proposed new law which would have criminalised the "glorifying" of so-called terrorist activities has been revised following criticism. The revised proposal apparently means that somebody would have to "intend to incite" future terrorist acts in order to be convicted.
The mainstream media spin is that this change represents a 'Climb-down' by the Home Secretary Charles Clarke. However, I see things a little different. This is all 'double speak', just part of a well rehersed game we have seen over and over again to hoodwink us.
01-10-2005 22:33One of Britain’s leading anti-terrorism lawyers has offered to mount a private prosecution for assault against the steward who manhandled Walter Wolfgang from the conference.
01-10-2005 07:23It's an old Colonial trick, and the Iraqis are wise to it. All you have to do is watch the media's change in context these past few weeks, switching from blaming the "Insurgency" (the Iraqi Resistance) for the violence, to talking about Sunnis and "al Qaeda" bogeymen.
If that's not enough, search for the leaked UK document "Iraq: Options Paper", written March 8, 2002, by the Overseas & Desnese Secretariat Cabinet Office, which explains how civil war can be achieved.
27-09-2005 01:55‘LONDON (Reuters): - A London underground train station was evacuated and part of a main east-west line closed in a security alert on Thursday, three weeks after suicide bombers killed 52 people on the transport network, police said. A Transport Police spokeswoman said Southwark station was closed and Jubilee Line services suspended between Waterloo and Canary Wharf in the east London business district.’
This Reuters story was written while the police were detaining me in Southwark tube station and the bomb squad was checking my rucksack. When they were through, the two explosive specialists walked out of the tube station smiling and commenting ‘nice laptop’. The officers offered apologies on behalf of the Metropolitan Police. Then they arrested me.
Sari Horwitz writes, a few days after my arrest, in the Washington Post:
‘After the July 7 attacks on the London transit system by suicide bombers, the international police chiefs organization produced a detailed training guide for dealing with suicide bombers [that] recommends [...] an officer needs to use lethal force to stop someone who fits a certain behavioral profile.’

26-09-2005 01:53“Such a perfect democracy constructs its own inconceivable foe, terrorism. Its wish is to be judged by its enemies rather than by its results. The story of terrorism is written by the state and it is therefore highly instructive. The spectators must certainly never know everything about terrorism, but they must always know enough to convince them that, compared with terrorism, everything else must be acceptable, or in any case more rational and democratic” (Guy Debord, Comments on the Society of the Spectacle).
