How To Deal With America's Empire Of Bases

04-07-2009 19:14

The U.S. Empire of Bases -- at $102 billion a year already the world's costliest military enterprise -- just got a good deal more expensive. As a start, on May 27th, we learned that the State Department will build a new "embassy" in Islamabad, Pakistan, which at $736 million will be the second priciest ever constructed, only $4 million less, if cost overruns don't occur, than the Vatican-City-sized one the Bush administration put up in Baghdad.

Refugees in Calais. Why we say NO BORDERS!

26-06-2009 23:44

Hundreds queue on a Calais industrial estate.
A few years ago that nice Mr Sarkozy (then French home secretary) was desperate to impress that even nicer Mr Blair. So to capitulate to Mr Blair and his masters in the British tabloid media, he closed the Red Cross Sangatte refugee camp near Calais. Prior to its demolition Sangatte was a place where vulnerable refugees fleeing places like Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan could get food, healthcare and a bed for the night. By a staggering coincidence Great Britain has had rather a lot of influence in the fortunes of Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan. So some people might suggest that we have a slight responsibility with regard to helping these people? Now (post Sangatte) they have to sleep under bridges and in dangerous camps where they are regularly attacked by the Police and local racists. Fortunately they are being fed each day by a number of unpaid volunteers from the Calais based 'Salam' charity who are doing an amazing job.
