Battle for Baghdad: City Braces Itself for US Surge

Lina Massufi, a 32-year-old Iraqi laboratory assistant with two children, is a widow - her husband was killed by US troops when he accidentally drove down a closed road in 2003. In the past three months she has seen her house raided and her furniture smashed twelve times. "Every time they raid my house, they break down the door," she told a UN official.

Rockefeller Says He May Subpoena Documents on Spying

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller said he may subpoena Bush administration documents on its controversial domestic surveillance program. Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), vowed he'll get details on a secret court's approvals of the program that targets suspected al-Qaeda members in the US. "I don't trust what they're doing," Rockefeller said.

On Iran, Bush Faces Haunting Echoes of Iraq

As President Bush and his aides calibrate how directly to confront Iran, they are discovering that both their words and their strategy are haunted by the echoes of four years ago - when their warnings of terrorist activity and nuclear ambitions were clearly a prelude to war. This time, they insist, it is different.

Pirates Stick by Whales

Every winter, the Japanese whaling fleet heads to the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica on a mission to kill a thousand whales. Ever since the International Whaling Commission banned commercial whaling in 1986, Japan has used a curious rationale for its whaling. It does not kill a thousand whales for commercial purposes. It kills them for scientific research.

The One World Order: Following the Filthy Lucre

by Deanna Spingola

Though the "powers of darkness prevail upon the earth," we "know not the hearts of the men in our own nation" particularly because many Americans suffer from a media-induced state of ignorance. We are over-run with secret societies, where power-seeking participants swear allegiance to each other through secret oaths. They are all working towards the same satanical objective and attempt to function and influence every aspect of society and culture.

Pledge to Boycott for the Wolves

I pledge to participate in an Inter-National Boycott of the products, services and tourism of the states of Idaho, Wyoming and Montana as part of a campaign to protect and prevent the slaughter of our Grey Wolf.

I will continue to Boycott until an acceptable plan of wolf management is present by these three states. I will also petition my family and friends to participate.

I further state that I disagree with the U.S Fish and Game ruling of Aug. 1, 2006, that the Gray Wolf should be removed from the Endangered Species Act as stated in Federal Register Vol. 71, No 147. I find that neither Montana nor Idaho have presented “management plan that demonstrate adequate regulatory mechanism exist.

In his statement of January 11, 2007 at a rally of hunters in Boise, Idaho “I'm prepared to bid for that first ticket to shoot a wolf myself”, Mr. Otter clearly states that his intention is to kill all the wolves in Idaho.

On the issues of declining Elk populations I pledge to Petition the Department of Agriculture to end all grazing of cattle and sheep in our National Forest. The damage large domestic herd of do to the eco-system is the reason for wild grazing animals decline. Secondly if would greatly reduce contact between wolves and domestic cows and sheep.

I pledge to withdraw all economical support from Idaho, Wyoming and Montana Corporations, Companies, products, frozen French fries, lumber, agriculture, tourists. I agree to Boycott targeted Companies as this campaign moves forward.

Gesundheitssystem: In der Fortschrittsfalle

11. Der Wettbewerb zwingt zur Erschließung neuer Märkte. Das Ziel muss die Umwandlung aller Gesunden in Kranke sein, also in Menschen, die sich möglichst lebenslang sowohl chemisch-physikalisch als auch psychisch für von Experten therapeutisch, rehabilitativ und präventiv manipulierungsbedürftig halten, um „gesund leben“ zu können. Das gelingt im Bereich der körperlichen Erkrankungen schon recht gut, im Bereich der psychischen Störungen aber noch besser, zumal es keinen Mangel an Theorien gibt, nach denen fast alle Menschen nicht gesund sind. Fragwürdig ist die analoge Übertragung des Krankheitsbegriffs vom Körperlichen auf das Psychische.

Impeachment: The Case in Favor

His impeachable offenses include using lies and deceptions to drive the country into war in Iraq, deliberately and repeatedly violating the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) on wiretapping in the United States, and facilitating the mistreatment of US detainees in violation of the Geneva Conventions and the War Crimes Act of 1996.

Why We Must Have Impeachment

By Dave Lindorff

When impeachment hearings began for President Richard Nixon, a scant one in four Americans thought he should be impeached. During the Clinton impeachment farce, support for the president"s removal from office never topped 36 percent. Yet a Newsweek poll taken last fall found that a remarkable 51 percent of the American public felt this president should face impeachment.

A National Intelligence Estimate on the United States

By Chalmers Johnson

The imperial project is expensive. The flow of the nation’s wealth – from taxpayers and (increasingly) foreign lenders through the government to military contractors and (decreasingly) back to the taxpayers – has created a form of “military Keynesianism,” in which the domestic economy requires sustained military ambition in order to avoid recession or collapse.

Bush Throws The Dice

By John Damien

By funding the Iraq war and supporting Israel, Egypt and Jordan, the US pays an oil security tax running at least $100 billion per year. China doesn’t pay billions per year to secure their oil supplies. The Europeans collectively spend a fraction of the US amount on oil security.
