From hope to despair in Baghdad

BBC Video Report

Pessimism 'growing in Iraq'Iraqis have little confidence in their own government and the US-led coalition forces, a major survey has shown.


Iraqis increasingly pessimistic

Fewer than one in five Iraqis has confidence in U.S.-led coalition troops and they are evenly split on whether they have confidence in Iraq's government, according to a poll published Monday.


From Information Clearing House

Kick out the occupation and sectarian gangs from Iraq:

We are commemorating the 4th year of the U.S.-led war on Iraq. This war that brought us nothing but carnage, poverty, and more than two million displaced people. This is Bush's promised democracy to Iraqis.

Blaming The Victims: Covering Up Terrorism In Iraq

By Ghali Hassan

A recent cover story in the Time magazine (March, 2007, Europe and Asia) by Bobby Ghosh, "Why They Hate Each Other", aimed at removing the Occupation as the generator of violence against the Iraqi people, and portrays the violence as "Iraqis killing Iraqis". This media distortion obfuscates the U.S. monopoly on terrorism and allows the U.S. to use Iraq as a laboratory for terror at the expense of the Iraqi people.

Washington Companies Withhold Info on Oil and Gas Pipelines

Claiming that the release of detailed information on oil and gas pipelines could aid terrorists or troublemakers, pipeline companies in Washington state are appealing a judge's order that they disclose to the public specifics about their potentially explosive lines. Meanwhile, the companies are asking the Legislature to change the Washington Public Records Act to allow the information to be kept secret - while simultaneously claiming in court that the law already shields the records from disclosure.

Senate to Pass Prosecutor Bill

The Senate is poised to pass legislation today stripping President Bush's authority to appoint interim US attorneys. Aides in both camps said neither party sees an advantage in slow-walking the US attorneys bill and predicted it will pass the Senate with a bulk of lawmakers in both parties supporting it.


Bush Administration Ranked Fitzgerald During Leak Case

US Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald was ranked among prosecutors who had "not distinguished themselves" on a Justice Department chart sent to the White House in March 2005, when he was in the midst of leading the CIA leak investigation that resulted in the perjury conviction of a vice presidential aide. The chart was drawn up to identify US attorneys who should be removed. Two prosecutors who received the same ranking as Fitzgerald were later fired.

The subprime scandal

The American Prospect
by Robert Kuttner


The Bush administration and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce picked an awkward moment for their latest assault on financial and consumer-protection regulation. At the very moment that Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson was meeting with Wall Street bigwigs in a high-profile confab this week to call for weakening the post-Enron Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other investor and consumer protections, the stock market was tanking. Why is the market so nervous? Mainly thanks to the latest bitter fruit of financial deregulation: the collapsing $1.3 trillion ’subprime’ mortgage business, which now accounts for one mortgage in three. Here is a textbook case of why financial institutions need to be regulated, to protect both consumers and the solvency of the larger economy...

Four years in Iraq, and most important lesson eludes us

by Saritha Prabhu


Four years isn’t a long time but, in the context of the Iraq war, can seem like an eternity. Was it only four years ago that we sat and watched TV images of American tanks hurtling across Iraqi desert sands? The prevailing mood in this country, then, was a mixture of gung ho and unsure. This, many thought, was going to be the mother of all reality shows — 21st-century warfare in real time, the world’s mightiest military, fly-swatting a bratty country. That was then, and here we are now, in the war’s fifth year — past statue-toppling and museum-looting; past ‘Mission Accomplished,’ ‘Stuff happens’ and ‘Bring it on!’; past purple fingers, elections and constitutions; past car bombs, IEDs, beheadings and torturing; past talks of partition and is-it-or-isn’t-it-civil-war debates...

Would terrorists from Iraq follow US troops home?

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


The Bush administration, desperate for justifications to buy a little more time with the American people for its failed adventure in Iraq, markets the idea that if the United States rapidly withdraws from Iraq, the ‘terrorists will follow us home.’ A closer examination of this assertion — like the rest of the administration’s fear mongering — demonstrates it is baseless. U.S. State Department statistics show that historically, North America has had the lowest incidence of terrorism worldwide. The American public’s shocked reaction to the catastrophic 9/11 attacks was due, in part, to the infrequency of past terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. After the unique events of 9/11, terrorism in North America has resumed its historical modest trajectory. North America has been a relative safe haven from terrorism for several reasons...

What a dispirited, dispiriting speech President George W. Bush delivered to mark the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq

Guy Smiley
by Fred Kaplan


What a dispirited, dispiriting speech President George W. Bush delivered this morning to mark the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. One could argue that it would have been dishonest to deliver any other sort of speech, for few things are more dispiriting than this war, which has now gone on for a quarter-year longer than America’s involvement in World War II. Yes, the war in Iraq is a very different war, but one would have thought — certainly we were told — it would be a lot shorter. And President Bush made it very clear that this war is not nearly over...

Lessons of the anti-war movement

by Ron Jacobs


On Saturday March 17th, Appeal to Reason co-founder Liam Madden and a number of other Iraq vets stood on the stage near the Pentagon and called for people to move from protest to resistance. Madden’s call echoed similar suggestions that have been coming up more frequently among movement activists. In fact, some groups have already begun this move, occupying legislator’s offices and insisting that they do more than say they are against the war while they vote to continue funding it. In Washington state, activists with the Port Militarization Resistance have attempted to block shipments of Stryker vehicles and other supplies on their way to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from the ports of Olympia and Tacoma. On March 16th, Christian antiwar activists participated in a sit-in across from the White House to protest the war. These instances are but a few examples of how the momentum of the movement can be pushed forward...

Pelosi’s capitulation

by Pat Buchanan


If George W. Bush launches a preemptive war on Iran, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will bear full moral responsibility for that war. For it was Pelosi who quietly agreed to strip out of the $100 billion funding bill for Iraq a provision that would have required President Bush to seek congressional approval before launching any new war on Iran. Pelosi’s capitulation came in the Appropriations Committee. What went down, and why?

Gonzales’s fall, Bush’s impeachment?

by James Bovard


Alberto Gonzales will soon be ejected from the Justice Department. Bush’s Attorney General has been caught in too many flagrant lies and abuses. The real question is whether Gonzo’s fall will signal the beginning of the end of the Bush reign. Gonzo’s fall will be widely seen as a result of shenanigans and deceits involving the firing of 8 U.S. attorneys. The White House and top Justice Department officials seem to have colluded to deep-six attorneys who threatened Republican congressmen or appointees. The pending congressional testimony by Gonzo’s former chief of staff, Kyle Sampson, could create new problems for the White House. But Bush is probably in much greater danger from the derailing [of] a Justice Department investigation into Gonzo’s possibly criminality...

The Islamo-fascist rationale for abandoning liberty

Throughout the many years of the Cold War, conservatives maintained that it was necessary to have an enormous military and military-industrial complex to protect us from the Soviet communists who were threatening to conquer the United States and the Western world. Throughout those years, one glaring fact stands out: At no time did conservatives ever claim that Islamo-fascism was a threat that required a massive military machine. The threat was always communism, especially Soviet communism...

Bush's Book List Gets More Islamophobic

Accounts of a Feb. 28 "literary luncheon" at the White House suggest that President George W.

Over 5M living with Alzheimer's


Informant: binstock


An interesting Quote in an Alzheimer's Disease Forum

This article may date back to last year, but Alzheimer's Groups don't often acknowledge a link to EMFs, so I draw your attention to it, since it is a personal case, with an e-mail address.



(see specifically Joanne C. Mueller's note):-

Hi: Certainly we caregivers and Alzheimers' sufferers need to remain hopeful. In order to spare those of you who have already read my other rather lengthy posts, I am going to skip most of my history -- reasons why I have been researching EMF/EMR (electromagnetic fields/electromagnetic radiation) for over a decade.

You will notice that "DRUGS" are the main theme in most if not all articles re new scientific discoveries.

Scientists don't dare do the studies that show "cause" due to toxic, EMF pollution. They lose their funding and/or don't receive funds in the first place.

Dr. George Carlo's "docu-drama," The Boiling Frog Syndrome" will be released to theatres some time in 2007 (health problems due to cell phone useage). Dr. Carlo worked for the cell phone industry and was even threatened for sharing the truth. He stopped speaking out but is once again trying to educate the public.

I am saddened to note that even the Alzheimers site does not include precautionary info re chronic, prolonged exposures of EMF/EMR!

Studies many years ago linked Alzheimers with women working in the sewing industry. Any electrical device puts out a magnetic field and in the case of a sewing machine, levels can be 4.0 milligauss or more in the typical location for one's head while sewing.

PREVENTION is vitally important and one way to help do that is to make sure electrical items are kept at least 4 ft. away from the head of one's bed. I don't know what one does about extensive sewing machine use.

There have been Workers' Comp cases re health problems and on-the-job electrical exposure. This is not something that is mysterious and unknown as researchers, government and industry would like you to believe.

The 2002 EMF California Report links brain cancer, Leukemia, Lou Gehrig's Disease and miscarriage to levels as low as 4.0 milligauss.

The 1999 EMF RAPID Conclusions name low level EMF's as Class 2B carcinogens.

The National Library of Congress website identifies EMF's as "toxic...."

"AGEING" (of the cells) is what happens when a person sleeps every night exposed to even low levels of EMF/EMR.

I have previously mentioned my grandsons' rare immune (an "ageing of their cells" -- they were infant/toddler ages) that predisposed them to Leukemia, etc. and that they "got well" after we moved their beds away from walls opposite electric meters.

AMYLOID was identified in one of my guinea pigs who had been exposed to
(inside) bedroom wall in our house opposite where the electric meter is mounted (outside). The University Vet who did the necropsy identified the particular amyloid as "reactive."

Obviously drugs are still necessary to try and reverse the ravages of Alzheimers (continuing to rise at alarming rates) BUT, it is more than possible any such medications once released to the public, might only be effective a short time and/or actually worsen a victim's situation IF persons aren't warned about sleeping close to electrical items, the need to check for improper wiring and correction of grounding problems, etc.

Don't give up on prayer, hope or positive thinking but do what you can to help your loved one regardless of their stage and also to help yourself prevent every health problem all the way from poor sleep to cancer!!! Joanne

Barely a week seems to pass without the Bush administration getting caught hiding, censoring, or denying global warming science. Last week the Center for Biological Diversity and former Clinton official Debora Williams obtained an internal administration order prohibiting U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service scientists from talking about polar bears, sea ice, or global warming.

Congressmen Jay Inslee (D-WA), Bart Gordon (D-TN) and Brad Miller (D-NC) have demanded the administration withdraw the policy and explain its actions to Congress. Check out the media coverage at the

Do whatever it takes to stop the harassment and slaughter of the wild Yellowstone bison!

* Spring into Action for Wild Buffalo!


Dear Buffalo Friends,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20, BFC's Josh Osher and Darrell Geist will present testimony to the House Subcommittee for National Parks, Forests and Public Lands at the Oversight Hearing on Yellowstone National Park Bison.

BFC will demonstrate that the Interagency Bison Management Plan (IBMP) is failing the last population of wild bison in the U.S., the Yellowstone herd, which currently numbers fewer than 3,600 animals. The IBMP, signed in 2000, is a state-federal agency plan responsible for the harassment, capture, slaughter and quarantine of wild Yellowstone buffalo. Since the IBMP's inception, 1,912 Yellowstone bison have been killed by Yellowstone and Montana. The hearing will begin at 10 AM (est) and can be viewed live by going to: http://resourcescommittee.house.gov/hearings/hearingdetail.aspx?NewsID=36.

We have waited a very long time for an opportunity like this. Tomorrow's hearing marks an amazing chapter in the buffalo's story and they need your help to make it as powerful as possible.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION! Call the House Parks Subcommittee & your House Representative on Tuesday!

1) If you live in the home district of one of the Subcommittee members please contact her/him on behalf of the last wild buffalo because it is especially critical that they hear from you! Urge them to do whatever it takes to stop the harassment and slaughter of the wild Yellowstone bison. Contact information for each member of the House subcommittee is listed below or here at this link: http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/cgi-bin/newcommittee.cgi?site=ctc&lang=&commcode=hresources_parks

2) Don't see your Representative listed? Use the following contact info to get your message to the subcommittee membership: Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands, 1333 Longworth House Office Building, Phone: (202) 226-7736, Fax: (202) 226-2301
Email: parks.subcommittee@mail.house.gov (Entire Committee)

3) If your House representative is not on the Subcommittee, please contact them anyway and urge them to take a leadership role in protecting the Yellowstone bison, the United State's last continuously wild herd (use link below).

4) Please contact your Senators and urge them to hold a similar hearing in the Senate (use link below).

Urge the Subcommittee (and all of Congress) to provide clear direction to our National Forests and Parks that wild bison belong, and are our top priority on public lands and ask them to fund the purchase of wildlife conservation easements including winter range and corridors for bison to migrate through private lands in the Yellowstone area. BFC will be visiting with Congressional offices over the next two weeks and your calls will make a huge difference!

"Not since the Great Depression has the American worker faced such a bleak future. According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, incomes for the lowest income quintile have declined during the past decade and the gap between the rich and the poor grows bigger each year.

World's Most Important Crops Hit by Global Warming Effects

Global warming over the past quarter-century has led to a fall in the yield of some of the most important food crops in the world, according to one of the first scientific studies of how climate change has affected cereal crops. Rising temperatures between 1981 and 2002 caused a loss in production of wheat, corn and barley that amounted in effect to some 40 million tons a year.
