July 17, 2005

The World According to the Neo-Con Sympathisers - Perhaps this is the result of ‘educating’ Americans at one level by people like Thomas Friedman, Charles Krauthammer and Daniel Pipes. At a more basic level, it is the result of getting informed by Hollywood movies, Jerry Springer, Fox-TV and the likes. Fox-TV is where you get to see analytical ‘debates’ between an extreme neo-con and a moderate neo-con!

Hard Choices: Bombing al-Qaeda’s Server in Houston - A quick check with MapQuest reveals this to be a densely populated area on a main thoroughfare surrounded by residential neighborhoods (and even a park).

July 10, 2005

Terrorism is a Racket - Think about the evidence that the events of 9/11/2001 were not only known in advance by the highest levels of U.S. government and military, but were actually committed by trained operatives of the government, the evidence hauled away without careful examination of forensics by the same government, and a cover-up commission organized by former members and intense collaborators of the government.

al-Qu’eda or al-a’diversion? - The name is merely a mantra, like ‘Red’ or ‘Commie’, a convenient button to be pushed as and when needed.
(764 views)

Sex, Drugs, Mind Control, and Gitmo - According to an article in the New Yorker (one of the only major publications still gutsy enough to publish critical, investigative journalism), the ghosts of Gottlieb, Cameron, and the other architects of MKULTRA and BLUEBIRD are alive and well and continuing their devastating psychological abuse and experimentation. A new generation of psychologists and physicians are turning the Hippocratic Oath on its head in their attempts to shape and modify behavior -- much of it under the guise of "extracting information" from "terrorists" (some of whom are innocents caught up in the post-9/11 dragnet).
(1117 views)

Who's Watching the Watch List? - My name is on a list of real and suspected enemies of the state and I can't find out what I'm accused of or why, let alone defend myself. And I'm guilty, says my government, not just until proven innocent or a victim of mistaken identity--but forever.

July 6, 2005

Bush Is Serving Up the Cold War Warmed Over - The "war on terror" is turning out to be nothing more than a recycled formulation of the dangerously dumb "domino theory." Listen to the way President Bush justifies the deepening quagmire of Iraq: "Defeat them abroad before they attack us at home." If we didn't defeat communism in Vietnam, or even tiny Grenada, went the hoary defense of bloody proxy wars and covert brutality in the latter stages of the Cold War, San Diego might be the next to go Red.

N.J. City Criticized for Homeless Lawsuit - The USA Patriot Act, in the name of fighting terrorism, allows the government to find out which books and Internet sites a person has seen.

Post-9/11 Probe Revived Stolen-Cereal Incident - More than a year before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the FBI nabbed two Arab grocers loading boxes onto a tractor-trailer outside a drab gray apartment building here. The cargo: stolen Kellogg's cereal. To this day, the grocers remain on the federal government's list of terrorism cases, although they never were charged with a terrorism-related crime. Often cited to emphasize the government's success fighting terrorism, the list is made up in large part of men caught up in the post-Sept. 11 dragnet that targeted Middle Easterners.

U.S. Effort to "Spread Democracy" Leaves A Trail of Conflict and Suffering - One-Tenth of Arabs live directly under foreign occupation - Bush claims his policies are promoting democracy, but the administration’s record of human rights abuses at home and abroad suggest that freedom and the rule of law are not what he has in mind. The permanent bases the military is building in Iraq, and the influence on U.S. policy of pro-Israel fantasists such as Bolton and Wurmser, suggest that the Bush administration’s ultimate goal is U.S. domination over the oil-rich Gulf region, and an Israel free to maintain its occupation of other people’s land. A truly democratic Middle East would make it impossible to achieve these goals.

Washington Is the Source of Terror - The U.S. government gave the slave trade a boost by offering money for al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters. Afghan and Pakistani warlords simply rounded up people who looked Arab or foreign and sold them to the Americans as captured fighters.
