02-04-2007 07:10It’s confirmed, total panic grips Howard government over Hicks scandal! The novice Environment Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has weighed in on the Hicks debate with a wild accusation inferring that Hicks was “.. seeking to destroy our civilisation.” -- what next? Turnbull's statement follows hot on the heels of the stratospheric logic (see link) displayed by the Federal Treasurer in his effort to save the government -- who's next?
Translation: simple high-explosives, depleted uranium, and millions of cluster bombs will no longer do the trick—it is time to nuke the Arabs and Muslims, as “Western logic,” i.e., use of nuclear weapons is unconscionable, does not apply.
01-04-2007 18:07Citing Russian media and AP, the Jerusalem Post is now reporting that the US will strike Iran on Good Friday between the hours of 4.00 am and 4.00 pm in a coordinated series of air strikes and missile attacks aimed at selected strategic targets.
01-04-2007 14:05When things are a bit slow we can always rely on the Australian conservative government to entertain us -- their now very desperate (divorced from reality) attempts to come out of the Hicks “saga” smelling roses are entertaining if nothing else. The impossibility of the Howard government looking good over any issue relating to Hicks hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm of the Federal Treasurer, Peter Costello. The Treasurer has very unwisely waded into the debate with characteristic miscalculated comments regarding Hicks. Try as Costello might to incriminate Hicks and brand him a murderer, the facts speak for themselves.
01-04-2007 13:20As of this writing, the IAEA Director-General continues to report that Iran is in complete compliance with its Safeguards Agreementand that no NPT-proscribed materials have ever been diverted by Iran to a military purpose.
So how can the UN Security Council, being "mindful of its primary responsibility" for "the maintenance of international peace and security," pass UNSC Resolution 1747, but then proceeds to declare the UNSC "concerned" by the "proliferation risks" presented by the Iranian Safeguarded nuclear program?
31-03-2007 21:20Kremlin + Debkafile fear USA 12-hour (4am-4pm) aerial attack on Iran in first
fortnight of April, possibly Friday 6 April, to take advantage of "Western opinion
being on holidays" during the Easter break. Signs of an impending attack include US
navy buildup as in 2003; US officers' advice to US investors to leave Bahrain; 90%
occupancy at emirate hotels due to US military; Western military-embedded media.
31-03-2007 19:48Recieved a news update from Jago in the form of an email... thought I'd share.
Apparently Babs and Brian went to court on Friday to ask a few questions of DJ Purdy anregarding requesting the return of Brian's illegally seized display of evidence of genocide and torture that was stolen without the benefit of a warrant. Oops!
Apparently this is what started the payback of that naughty DJ Evans issuing all those summonses to incorrect addresses and the fiasco that was was Monday morning kangaroo court, which escalated into Thursday afternoon contempt trials.
Bullies always need to pick on someone to make themselves fel big... how pathetic.

31-03-2007 17:18The timing could not have been better. At the start of the country’s longest public holiday for the Iranian new year, the ministries, parliament and press in Tehran were all out of action, ensuring little or no criticism of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the military for creating such a dangerous situation at a time of major crisis.

31-03-2007 09:55The sham trial of Australian detainee David Hicks at the Bush administration’s prison camp at Guantánamo Bay is drawing to a close. Yesterday presiding judge Colonel Ralph Kohlman formally convicted Hicks on one charge of “providing material support for terrorism”, and released the details of a plea bargain that will return Hicks to Australia to serve his jail term. The deal provides for a maximum of seven years, but all but nine months have been suspended.
31-03-2007 09:52A Guantánamo detainee has charged that he was tortured into confessing to a role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole. Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, 41, a Saudi national of Yemeni descent, said he faced years of torture following his arrest in 2002 and that he fabricated stories to satisfy his captors.
31-03-2007 04:54Notice the use of language -- Australian news radio (12 noon) today broadcast that “convicted terrorist, David Hicks, receives nine month sentence...” – shame on ABC news radio, one can only wonder whether the choice of wording reflected the fundamentalist conservative, evangelical christian values of the Howard-loving producer, who will remain nameless in this report. Unlike American loving evangelical christians, most Australians accept “convictions” as a result of fair trials and due legal process NOT sordid kangaroo court 'determinations'.
31-03-2007 01:02While Western media coverage has done little beyond echo and embellish Tony Blair’s immediate shrieking and bellicose assertions (“there was no justification whatsoever . . . completely unacceptable, wrong and illegal”), and the predictable Bush administration support for Blair (the White House “fully backs Tony Blair and our allies in Britain”), and the impending political onslaught against Tehran, little if any analysis has been devoted to the context of what has led up to this incident.
30-03-2007 20:32Seeing is believing... for those who would question the veracity of events, a journey down Horseshit Road to Westminster Magistrates Courts is most illuminating when trying to understand why Tony has not yet been sent to the Hague.

open line challenges, so we can publicly isolate each and

all of everything else still left outstanding murdering
