US Congress Debates Rebuke for Bush on Iraq

US lawmakers are thrashing out the wording of a draft resolution condemning President Bush's plan to send more troops to Iraq ahead of the release of a pivotal US intelligence report on the war-ravaged country.

Intelligence Estimate on Iraq: "US Has Little Control"

A long-awaited National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq, presented to President Bush by the intelligence community yesterday, outlines an increasingly perilous situation in which the United States has little control and there is a strong possibility of further deterioration, according to sources familiar with the document.

Will Bush, Cheney Attack Iran? When and Why?

Steve Hammons asks: "Despite recent election results reflecting Americans' concerns about the Iraq War and related matters, will George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and their associates choose to use US military forces to attack Iran? Or, maybe the correct question is: When will they choose to attack? April? March? February?"

ACTION PAGE: http://www.peaceteam.net/no_surge2.php

A couple days ago we heard that Republicans were working to scuttle a resolution opposing the new tactically and strategically doomed proposed increase in troop deployments to Iraq. Now we hear the Harry Reid has totally caved in and signed on to a watered down subservient compromise that says, get this, it "should not be interpreted as precipitating any immediate reduction in" troop levels. The Washington Post is calling the totally neutered resolution "weak". And now we learn it's not 21,000, it's as many as 48,000 including support personnel.

When is Congress going to be strong? When are they going to stand up for what the American people are calling for, an IMMEDIATE REVERSAL in direction, to bring the troops home, to stop the insanity which is our military posture in Iraq. The despicably cowardly compromise goes further and states, "The Congress should not take any action that will endanger United States military forces in the field, including the elimination or reduction of funds for troops in the field." The last time we checked that biggest factor in endangering our troops was the fact that they were THERE at all.

They might as well call it the American Troop Death Warrant And Dismemberment Act of 2007. This is NOT what the American people want. This is NOT what we voted for. Hear us Congress. Stop whining and get out there and fight, just like you expect from our involuntarily re-mobilized troops, who no longer have any choice in the matter.

THE UPCOMING ACTIVIST RADIO CHANNEL

We also have some news about an exciting new project, Activist Radio. How would you like to have your own radio show? Many of you will remember the Desktop Action software we debuted last year, allowing you to send messages to Congress with one click right from your computer desktop. We are in the final stages of a major upgrade to this program including a potentially unlimited selection of audio transmission channels.

As we are finishing up the coding of the new interface we would like to invite you to start submitting your audio content so we can but together a beta playlist as a demonstration. We are interested in any and all of your own recordings of a progressive nature, commentary, interviews, music, comedy, whatever you are inspired to produce that you think will inspire others to speak out on the issues. The only stipulation is that all submission must be your own creation, where you can personally authorize broadcast.

Here is a special upload page for the new Activist Radio resource to get in on the ground floor of this new resource.

Death Penalty: Abolition, a Capital Issue

"A country passionate about freedom cannot retain the death penalty as part of its laws." These were the words with which Robert Badinter started his August 1981 plea in favor of abolition of the death penalty. A quarter-century later, the death penalty has definitively passed into history for France. The National Assembly voted Tuesday for the abolition to be inscribed in the Constitution. The fight, nonetheless, is not over. Sixty-nine countries still apply capital punishment, and, in about thirty others, the death penalty is still part of the law. The third Global Congress against the Death Penalty opened in Paris yesterday.

How Bush can ensure no more Iraqs

Los Angeles Times
by Max Boot

01/31/07

The U.S. is only a few bright ideas away from being the nation builder it needs to be. One of the least noticed but most intriguing elements of the State of the Union speech occurred near the end, when President Bush called for the recruitment of 92,000 more soldiers and Marines and for the creation of a Civilian Reserve Corps that 'would ease the burden on the armed forces by allowing us to hire civilians with critical skills to serve on missions abroad when America needs them.' Never mind that there is much less here than meets the eye. Included in Bush's recruitment math are 30,000 Army troops already in the pipeline, so the increase is really only 62,000, not 92,000 -- and that number won't be available for five years. A larger, faster increase is needed to relieve the strain on our overstretched armed forces." [editor's note: Boot just can't bring himself to the simple answer. The EASY way to prevent future "Iraqs" is to not friggin' invade them! - TLK]

Senate Majority Leadercrat Bill Frist not only rejected a 2008 bid for the White House, but is also retiring from politics altogether after serving 12 years as promised. The announcement stunned libertarians who noted that Frist actually served 12 years in the Senate after pledging to serve no more than 12 years in the Senate. Still, others have pointed out that the Tennessee pol remains under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for insider trading.

Wal-Mart, the nation's largest employer and the world's biggest retailer, is regularly paying itself rent and using the transaction to decrease the taxes it pays to state governments, according to a report in this morning's Wall Street Journal. The article by Jesse Drucker shows that Wal-Mart has saved hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes in 25 states, and may not be the only company using the practice. Drucker shows that state governments are finally getting wise and working to close a complicated tax loophole that the federal government discontinued years ago...

Personal savings rate drops, worst since Depression

Fox News

02/01/07

People once again spent everything they made and then some last year, pushing the personal savings rate to the lowest level since the Great Depression more than seven decades ago. The Commerce Department reported Thursday that the savings rate for all of 2006 was a negative 1 percent, meaning that not only did people spend all the money they earned but they also dipped into savings or increased borrowing to finance purchases. The 2006 figure was lower than a negative 0.4 percent in 2005 and was the poorest showing since a negative 1.5 percent savings rate in 1933 during the Great Depression. For December, consumer spending rose a solid 0.7 percent, the best showing in five months, while incomes rose by 0.5 percent, both figures matching Wall Street expectations...

Those who have the gold declare the wars, consistently lie about the real purpose of the war, and profit from the war. Those without the gold fight and die in the wars ... the smooth operation of any society requires that most people do not see history and reality this way.... if it seems this kind of awareness is spreading, and manifesting itself on the streets, one frequent way to deal with this is through disinformation or omission of information, and both subtle and overt forms of repression."

MP joins opposition to massive mast proposal

http://tinyurl.com/ys9yjm

Pre-schools within 300m of phone mast bid site

STRONG objections have been lodged against a proposed mobile phone mast less than 300 metres from seven Rustington nurseries, playchools and toddler groups.

Primary and secondary schools have to be consulted by mobile networks when masts are planned nearby, but it appears that none of the nurseries and other groups have been informed about the proposed site, at the junction of The Street and Woodlands Avenue.

Rustington Parish Council has highlighted the closeness of the pre-school facilities in a letter to Arun District Council, opposing the O2 mast.

Yesterday (Wednesday), Arun councillors were being recommended to object to the 15m tall structure, resembling a telegraph pole, on the grounds that it would be a "prominent and obtrusive feature".

Adrian Fielding, co-owner with his wife, Gemma, of the Early Bird Nursery School in Woodlands Avenue, which has 60 younger children on its books, said of the mast: "We don't want it there. It's completely the wrong place. If schools for older children are consulted about masts, then it should be the same for pre-schools, but we haven't been consulted."

And Sim Dendy, of Arun Community Church, which runs the Playcentre nursery in The Street, which takes 45 children, said the church was concerned about the proposed mast and would be finding out more information, with a view to writing to Arun.

In its objection, the parish council lists both pre-school facilities, along with Riverslea Nursery and Noah's Ark toddlers' group, both meeting in the parish church hall, The Street, and the Tiddlers, Mod Mums and Rascals groups, all based in the Methodist church hall in Claigmar Road.

The parish council also raised concerns that the mast would be close to a public seat and a café with outside seating, and the equipment cabinet for the mast could block drivers' views, making a highway hazard.

Everybody supports the troops

from Reason to Freedom
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)

02/28/07

Instead of questioning who has the best interests of our troops at heart, we should be debating which policy is best for our country. Defensive wars to preserve our liberties, fought only with proper congressional declarations, are legitimate. Casualties under such circumstances still are heartbreaking, but they are understandable. Casualties that occur in undeclared, unnecessary wars, however, are bewildering. Why must so many Americans be killed or hurt in Iraq when our security and our liberty were not threatened? Cliches about supporting the troops are designed to distract us from failed policies, policies promoted by powerful special interests that benefit from war. Anything to steer the discussion away from the real reasons the war in Iraq will not end anytime soon...

Court threat for mobile giant

A DETERMINED protester has threatened county court action against mobile phone giant 02 if it does not reverse its plans to site a mast near Drayton School.

Mary Jenvey of Powys Grove, Banbury, told the company in an angry letter this week that "campaigners will not accept this decision" to site the mast on Oxfordshire County Council-owned land next to Trinity Close close to Drayton School and Drayton Playgroup.

When the plans were first announced last June Mrs Jenvey and other parents spoke of their fears for children's safety, especially in relation to cancer.

Now Mrs Jenvey said she will turn to Banbury County Court if the mast, started in October, is completed by the company.

"We will look to our rights contained in a Code 17 of the Electronic Communication Code to apply to the county court for removal of the mast," she said.

"I know this has been successful in some cases and should the need arise we will give due consideration as to whether it is appropriate to seek the intervention of the courts.

"If this proves to be unsuccessful we will apply to the Lands Tribunal to gain compensation for the devaluation of our properties."

Mrs Jenvey has now formed a group called BATMAN (Banbury Against Telephone Masts Action Network).

Row is brewing over phone mast scheme

By Graham Poucher

OSSETT councillors are calling on residents to block plans for a mobile phone mast – earmarked for a site close to a primary school.

Wakefield Council has received an application from T-Mobile (UK) Ltd to place a telegraph pole-style mast on land at Royds Mill, Leeds Road, around 150 metres from Gawthorpe J&I School and nursery.

But councillors are worried about the potential effects of the 10m-high pole and antenna.

Coun Elizabeth Knowles said: “Considering that the council does not permit any masts on any of their buildings, including schools, I think they should listen to people’s calls for this mast not to go ahead so close to Gawthorpe J&I School.”

Coun Alec Metcalf added: “They couldn’t have chosen a worse place. Many of the local residents are very concerned about it and I know the school isn’t too happy either.

“I am urging people to write to the council and object to this proposal.”

A spokesperson for T-Mobile (UK) Ltd said: “This is a carefully planned and sensitively designed project. We have had discussions with the local authority and explored alternative options.

“We have written to the nearest school and the local councillor, but have yet to hear anything. The consultation on this site is of course on-going and we would welcome further discussions.”

Sue Vickerman, headteacher at Gawthorpe J&I School, added: “The school is very concerned about the close proximity of the proposed structure.”

Dave Lindorff:

I wrote last September that Bush was gearing up for war with Iran, as evidenced by the moving up of the deployment date of the carrier group headed by the recently re-fueled and re-armed USS Eisenhower, some of whose crewmembers had leaked that its mission was to attack Iran.

End the Occupation Now! filmed at Busboys and Poets

On January 27, 2007, 500,000 marched against war and occupation in Washington, DC. After this mass demonstration against the war, Kelly Dougherty, co-founder and Executive Director of Iraq Veterans Against War, and Anthony Arnove, author of Iraq: the Logic of Withdrawal spoke at the Bus Boys and Poets cafe. Their talks followed an incredible performance of songs by activist/hip hop artist Son of Nun.

See videos of these talks (each about 20 minutes) and a scintillating performance of his "Speak on It" by Son of Nun at http://www.traprockpeace.org/arnove_dougherty_012707.html

You will also find photos, a radio quality (mp3) download of the entire event, video downloads for private viewing, and links to related websites.


In a moving, personal message that give a glimpse of the everyday tragedy of this war, Kelly Dougherty recounted her experiences as a US national guard MP in Iraq. She gave witness to the miseries endured by the Iraqi people, and the relentless pursuit of profits in Iraq by companies such as KBR.

Anthony Arnove spelled out the disastrous consequences of this war, for the Iraqi people and the US, and made the case for immediate withdrawal of occupation forces, with reparations.

Andy Shallal, owner of co-sponsor Busboys and Poets, and Pamela Pinnock, Events Manager, introduced the program and served as hosts to an overflow audience, with people sitting on the stage. Michele Bollinger of the International Socialist Organization, which co-sponsored the event, served as moderator.

The video and audio programs were produced by Traprock Peace Center. Find comlete coverage of this program and the day's peace march - with march video and over 200 photos - at http://www.traprockpeace.org
