Impunity

By Mike Whitney

George Bush is right; Iraq is “the central battlefield in the global war on terror”. Regrettably, it is United States that is the main sponsor and supporter of that terror in the form of American-trained death squads. Death squad activity in Iraq now accounts for more than 1,000 casualties per month. The Baghdad morgue has become a conveyor-belt for American-generated carnage.

Why Zarqawi's Death May Strengthen the Iraqi Resistance

"Bombing Zarqawi into oblivion will not end the resistance in Iraq. In fact, it may do the opposite," writes A.K. Gupta. "Zarqawi was a polarizing figure, a non-Iraqi promoting sectarian warfare. While the sectarianism in Iraq has become too entrenched to undo easily, his death creates space for Sunni resistance groups that were opposed to attacking Shiites."

Zarqawi Is Dead, but Weary Iraqis Fear the Violence Won't Subside

As news of Mr. Zarqawi's death settled into homes across the country, Iraqis at lunch tables and in living rooms found themselves wondering what, if anything, would be different. A relentless stream of killings and kidnappings has choked the routines of life to a trickle, and the death of Mr. Zarqawi, while welcome, did not seem likely to stop the violence.

Hamburger Führungsakademie der Bundeswehr: Deutsche Soldaten trainieren irakische Soldaten für den Krieg (09.06.06)

Die Bundesregierung hat einen Medienbericht zurückgewiesen, wonach die USA unverändert auf ein militärisches Engagement Deutschlands im Irak dringen. Es würden keine deutschen Soldaten und Ausbilder im Irak eingesetzt, sagte Vize-Regierungssprecher Thomas Steg am Freitag in Berlin. Die NATO hatte vor zwei Jahren Ausbildungshilfe für die irakischen Streitkräfte beschlossen. Seither wurden 1000 Offiziere in Bagdad geschult und weitere 500 in Europa, auch an der Hamburger Führungsakademie der Bundeswehr. In den Vereinigten Arabischen Emiraten trainieren deutsche Soldaten zudem irakische Pioniere.

Enemies within

06/08/06

President Bush has insisted that the NSA's controversial wiretapping program was aimed only at calls to or from overseas locations. But if homegrown terrorists are just as dangerous as terrorists abroad, then wouldn't domestic wiretaps become equally justified? And with the Bush Justice Department defining what constitutes a domestic terrorist, who will end up on list of justifiable targets? There are plenty of answers already on record from the long history of the FBI. During J. Edgar Hoover's reign from 1924 to 1972, a primary mission of the FBI was to gather intelligence on any persons or group Hoover deemed subversive -- the 'enemies within' At least 26,000 individuals were at one point cataloged on an FBI list of persons to be rounded up in the event of a 'national emergency'...

No tolls on the Internet

Common Dreams
by Lawrence Lessig and Robert W. McChesney

06/08/06

Congress is about to cast a historic vote on the future of the Internet. It will decide whether the Internet remains a free and open technology fostering innovation, economic growth and democratic communication, or instead becomes the property of cable and phone companies that can put toll booths at every on-ramp and exit on the information superhighway. At the center of the debate is the most important public policy you've probably never heard of: 'network neutrality.' ... Congress is deciding on the fate of the Internet. The question before it is simple: Should the Internet be handed over to the handful of cable and telephone companies that control online access for 98 percent of the broadband market? Only a Congress besieged by high-priced telecom lobbyists and stuffed with campaign contributions could possibly even consider such an absurd act. People are waking up to what's at stake, and their voices are growing louder by the day. As millions of citizens learn the facts, the message to Congress is clear: Save the Internet.

Zarqawi: The man and the myth

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

06/09/06

In life, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi cast a giant shadow not only over Iraq, but across the entire Middle East -- thanks, in large part, to the U.S. government's propaganda apparatus, which kept up a constant barrage dedicated to identifying the Iraqi insurgency with the leader of the 'Monotheism and Holy War' grouplet, often referred to as 'al-Qaeda in Iraq.' In death, however, quite a different story emerges. As Ned Parker, London Times reporter in Baghdad, put it, Zarqawi was 'a figurehead, an icon, a totemic figure' who 'was absolutely hated by most normal Iraqis on both sides of the sectarian divide.' Aside from being a foreigner -- his name literally means 'the man from Zarqa,' a Jordanian town half an hour's drive from Amman -- his mad car-bombing crusade alienated even his fellow Sunnis in the insurgency, and it is they who may have been his ultimate undoing...

Inquiry finds problems in 2004 election

San Luis Obispo Telegraph Tribune

Many of the voting and counting mishaps of the bizarre 2000 general election were not fixed four years later and brand new problems arose, including a rash of fraudulent voter registrations in some areas, congressional investigators say. A study of the 2004 election by the Government Accountability Office concludes that paper ballots continued to be used extensively by small jurisdictions, many polling places struggled to manage heavy early voting and new federal requirements for voter identification were applied unevenly by local officials across the country. The GAO released the study Thursday...

Simcoe cellphone tower to be moved: Neighbours complaint of illness

Cheryl Bauslaugh

Local News - Wednesday, June 07, 2006 @ 01:00

Norfolk councillors have decided to get rid of a cellphone tower in the centre of Simcoe that residents say is a health risk.

After hearing from more than 20 people in an often emotional five-hour debate Tuesday, council voted to move recently installed Rogers Wireless Inc. antennae on the Simcoe water tower - even though it could cost the county an estimated $300,000.

"I'm proud to be a resident of Norfolk County," said Dan Currie, who first raised the issue in February, shortly after the antennae were installed.

"Council was receptive and concerned about the welfare of its citizens," said Currie, who has been unable to live in his century home on Union Street because of symptoms such as nausea, headaches, fatigue and dizziness that he says are caused by the cell tower.

"I was fine before the antennae went up and I'm fine when I'm not at home," he told council.

Students in the senior law class at Simcoe Composite School did a survey of residents in the area - which is close to Elgin Avenue School and Norfolk General Hospital - and discovered several more residents with similar symptoms.

To date, 17 people have reported recurring illnesses since the cell tower was installed.

No evidence

Staff said there's no conclusive evidence linking radio frequency waves with illness. And they noted that the cell tower meets federal health and safety regulations in regard to exposure levels.

But Mayor Rita Kalmbach said she'd rather err on the side of caution when it comes to people's health.

"When I hear people say they only get sick at home, when they're close to the tower, I have to believe there's something to this," she said.

"I believe we have to do what is right and good. But it is going to cost all the people of Norfolk County considerable money."

Just how much money isn't clear. When Kalmbach asked a Rogers representative about the possibility of getting out of the lease before the March 31, 2008, expiry date, Jack Hills said that will be up to the company's lawyers to decide.

He was also non-committal about the possibility that Rogers might voluntarily move its cell tower to another site.

"It's not our policy," he said, adding that the tower is operating within guidelines set by Health Canada and Industry Canada.

"The alleged fear can be mitigated by the guidelines."

Hills also noted that Rogers has many other telecommunications towers that are close to hospitals and schools. Some, in fact, are on top of schools.

However, Magna Havas, an environmental scientist at Trent University, told council that Canada's guidelines aren't as stringent as those in other countries. She cited studies that show an increased risk of cancer, as well as symptoms such as headaches, insomnia and nausea, when people live within 400 metres of a cell tower.

"I think there's enough evidence to cause a concern. I recommend not allowing antennae within 400 metres of schools, homes or buildings where people work."

Havas said she is particularly concerned about the risk to students at Elgin because children are more vulnerable to developing cancer than adults.

Council directed staff to begin negotiating a way out of the lease agreement as soon as possible. County manager Bill Allcock said that process will begin this week but he's not sure how long it will take before the cell tower finds a new home - or what the cost will be to taxpayers. He said Rogers will have to find an alternate location before the antennae can be removed.

Coun. Roger Geysens voted in favour of moving the cell tower but he warned that this might be the start of similar requests from other county residents who live near cell towers.

"I certainly don't want to put children at risk but there's not very many places in Norfolk County where you're not gong to be within 400 metres of some residents.

"I think we're asking for some very difficult times."

Campaign brews over second cell tower

Residents encouraged by council decision to move Rogers tower

Monte Sonnenberg - SIMCOE REFORMER
Thursday June 08, 2006

The Simcoe Reformer — Families in the south end of Simcoe are deciding whether to make an issue of the microwave cellphone antenna in their neighbourhood.

Residents in the area of Ireland Road are encouraged by Norfolk council’s decision this week to order the removal of a microwave cellphone antenna from the Simcoe water tower at the west end of Union Street.

The Rogers Wireless antenna in that case was installed late last year. The 100-metre Bell Cellular tower behind Sprucedale Youth Centre and secondary school near Boswell Street was erected in late 1997.

“Oh yeah, what we’ll probably do is go around and get another petition,” says Brad Cronkwright, who lives on Ireland Road near the intersection with Decou Road.

Cronkwright gathered a petition against the tower and presented it to the former Simcoe council nearly 10 years ago. Simcoe council chose not to get involved, saying telecommunications issues are a federal responsibility.

Like the dozens of concerned community members who crammed the council chamber at Governor Simcoe Square this week, residents in the southeast part of Simcoe are concerned about the potential health effects of microwave cell tower transmissions.

Chris Cronkwright, wife of Brad, says there’s an unusually large number of people in the neighbourhood suffering from cancer.

And as with the Union Street-Elgin Avenue situation, a number of residents complain of vague symptoms such as headaches, sleep disorders, mood swings, depression, aches, pains and the like. Some wonder if the Bell tower is to blame.

Chris Cronkwright herself beat cancer more than 10 years ago and intends to keep it that way. She’s disturbed that her three young sons complain regularly of headaches.

“It’s an ongoing problem,” she said. “Nothing seems to be causing it.”

Neighbour Lori Ernst also wonders if microwave cell towers are especially bad for young people. She noted that young people are concentrated in the neighbourhood at Sprucedale, Lynndale Heights Public School and St. Joseph’s School on Oakwood Avenue.

“I have kids playing outside all the time,” Ernst said yesterday. “If there is any kind of risk, I want it taken down.”

Ernst added that she’s developed spots within her field of vision since the tower went up.

The situation regarding the Bell tower is significantly different from the Rogers Wireless tower that was ordered removed this week. The Bell tower is located on private property. As well, Bell owns all the infrastructure on the land.

Ken Glasser of National Antenna in Elmira was site foreman for the Bell project in 1997.

Nine years ago, he dismissed theories that microwave transmissions cause illness as “a bunch of hocus pocus.” He noted at the time that the broadcast unit at the top of the Bell tower was rated at eight watts. Glasser said this is substantially less than the 10,000 watts associated with typical FM radio broadcast towers.

“If the seal on the door of your microwave (oven) isn’t perfect, you’ll get a lot more radiation from there than you will from this tower,” he said.

“Most microwave ovens are driven by a 100-watt system. There is just no comparison.”

Health Canada's Unhealthy Agenda?

The residents of Simcoe in Norfolk County and the citizens of Canada in general should be very concerned about the hidden agenda of Health Canada. During the Norfolk council meeting of Tuesday 06 June 2006 residents complained about harm to their health from the recently installed, Rogers cell phone antennas on the Simcoe water tower. Many fellow citizens had conducted research and unearthed facts that clearly showed the dangers of living in close proximity to cell phone antennas. Included in their presentation was information showing that citizens in many different countries have reported cancer clusters and serious harm to health due to the nearby presence of cell phone antennas. Despite the reported health problems related to the antennas, Health Canada and the local health authority have done nothing about investigating the victims health problems, or providing assistance.

Contrast this inaction by Health Canada with the response that one would expect to an outbreak of food poisoning, SARS, e-coli, meningitis, Legionnaires disease, bird flu or a host of other infectious diseases. Reports and research from around the world indicate that exposure to electro-magnetic radiation from cell phone antennas and other sources is harming and killing many people. It is possible that E.M.R. is causing more harm to more citizens than all the above causes combined. Yet Health Canada's only response to Canada's victims is to state that these people cannot possibly be ill from cell phone masts because their exposure is below Canada's guidelines.

What Health Canada is not telling our citizens is that the guidelines are derived from the industries that cause the problem. The scope of the guidelines is limited to only the heating of the skin from the cell phone microwaves. The guidelines are not based on the biological effects, how they affect the brain, the immune system and various other parts of the human body. Compared to countries that have conducted detailed research into the health dangers of electro-magnetic radiation, our standards are extremely lax. It is probable that the research to which Health Canada chooses to refer is funded primarily by the cell phone industry itself.

Health Canada also relies upon information provided by the World Health Organization, even though the department head that governs electro-magnetic exposure considerations has been accused of receiving large amounts of money from the cell phone industry for travelling expenses. Considering the available research, the World Health Organization is far from realistic about the dangers of electro-magnetic exposure. They have clearly disregarded the interests of those they should be protecting.

At the meeting in Simcoe, the officials of Health Canada sat in a back row seat alongside the Rogers Canada and Industry Canada representatives, as if presenting a united front against the citizens who dared to report health harm from cell phone antennas. What do these three groups have in common? Industry Canada is the group that allows dangerously high levels of exposure to our citizens. Rogers uses those lax rules and saturates our environment with dangerous levels of electro-magnetic radiation, then denies any health effects. Health Canada is the organization that should be investigating the reported facts and health problems, and from whom the victims would reasonably expect to get some help. Yet with whom have they aligned themselves? It appears to me as if Health Canada is acting as a pimp to the cell phone industry, allowing the dirty work that is causing so many ill health effects.

Why has Health Canada turned a blind eye to what so many others can see? Are the health officials so incompetent? Or is it something more? Are they taking bribes, or orders from corrupt bureaucrats or politicians? There must be some reason why Health Canada is looking only at research that fits their "official view", while ignoring reports of all the harm that is being caused worldwide. The reckless spread of wireless technology is being allowed with little concern for the health of Canada's citizens. Health Canada and our government are allowing the interests of big business to take precedence over the safety of the population, even when there is clear evidence of very serious harm.
