The color of blood, the color of roaring, erupting volcanoes, the color of a dying sun, the color of passion, the color of Resistance...The color of Iraq”.

I wonder what goes through Cheney’s mind when he visits Baghdad. Does he ever look out the window of his armor-plated limmo and see the wasteland he’s created---the burned out buildings, the pock-marked streets, the wretched orphans sorting through the garbage for something to eat? Al Arabiya news says that there may be as many as 100,000 orphans in Baghdad now. These are Cheney’s kids, aren’t they--the Vice President’s gift to the “New Middle East”? The next generation of terrorists?
What a horrible legacy. What a horrible man.

Finally. Blair’s going. But why now? And what has Blair left us behind?
There are many reasons one can guess as to why, but perhaps one of the biggest – yet least talked about – is the “cash for peerages” criminal investigation, which has been getting rather close to home, too close perhaps for Blair’s comfort.
14-05-2007 12:46Never in recent history has US Middle East policy been subject to such a barrage of conflicting pressures from erstwhile allies, clients as well as adversaries. The points of contention involve fundamental issues of war and peace, foremost of which are divergent responses to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the US-Iranian confrontation, the US occupation of Iraq as well as the US-Ethiopian proxy invasion and occupation of Somalia.

He asserts that behind the US-Ethiopian political alliance lies a strategic move to secure positioning in this oil region.

11-05-2007 23:13The family of Jean Charles de Menezes express their disappointment at the IPCC decision to not bring any disciplinary action at 11 officers involved in his shooting at Stockwell station in July 2005.
With the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan raging the chances of being killed and injured have increased dramatically over the past few years. But even if ex-services personnel make it back alive many are still scared for life from their experiences.
We encourage everyone to help us hand out fliers and let people know what it's really like in the military!
10-05-2007 13:33Please attend this court hearing so as to ensure my personal safety and so justice may be claerly seen to be done.
It took a lot of effort on my part to secure this listing which despite wonderful help from those who slog in the chaos that is the offices whithin COWMC, justice certainly wasn't easily accessible.

Who writes the laws and who bangs the gavel that sets these monsters free?
When all ofhumanity would forever isolate the paedophiles from society, how can a police officer tell any parent that one is on the loose when he has just been set free?
10-05-2007 09:55The US Justice Department has charged six immigrants in New Jersey with participating in an alleged terrorist plot to attack a heavily fortified US Army base in the state, according to federal court papers filed Tuesday. FBI officials say the accused—four ethnic Albanians from the former Yugoslavia, one Jordanian and a young man from Turkey who had all lived in the US for years—were planning to kill scores, if not hundreds, of US soldiers at Fort Dix.
09-05-2007 21:20Today, Des Browne, the Minister of War (previously Minister of Racism) visited Oxford to talk about the future of warfare.
09-05-2007 08:03How many of us put any credence into this stuff, let alone pay attention? “Federal authorities announced Tuesday that they had foiled a terrorist plot to attack Fort Dix. Six men were charged with planning to kill as many soldiers as they could,” the Associated Press would have us believe. “One of the suspects, Serdar Tatar, had delivered pizza on the base and said he knew it like the back of his hand,” according to the government, never mind the “post has had especially tight security since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.”
