Abschluss des Forschungsprojekts zu Immissionen von Mobilfunksendeanlagen in der Stadt Attendorn

Die Stadt Attendorn hat sich im Herbst des vergangenen Jahres an einem Forschungsprojekt zur Erfassung der Immissionen von Mobilfunkanlagen beteiligt. Ziel war es, einen repräsentativen Überblick über die von den vorhandenen Basisstationen ausgehenden Immissionen im Stadtgebiet Attendorns zu erhalten. Der Abschlussbericht des Projekts liegt nun vor und bestätigt aus Sicht der Gutachter das Attendorner Konzept als Handlungsstrategie zur Umsetzung des Vorsorgeprinzips, weil es die technischen und wirtschaftlichen Anforderungen der Betreiber auf der einen Seite sowie die Interessen der Bürgerinnen und Bürger an einer möglichst immissionsminimierten Mobilfunkversorgung auf der anderen Seite gleichermaßen berücksichtigt.

Dick Cheney: Controversial Vice President

Philippe Gelie writes for Le Figaro: "Dick Cheney has become a ball and chain for George W. Bush. At a nadir in the polls, he is often designated as 'the worst Vice-President in US history'... After the resignation of the president's main adviser, Karl Rove, pressure is growing in Washington against the Executive branch's powerful Number Two. A year before the presidential election, the sulfurous record of 66-year-old Richard Cheney embarrasses the Republicans and stimulates the Democrats. Will the 46th Vice-President of the United States complete his term by George W. Bush's side?"



French President Cautions Against Attack on Iran

Angela Doland reports for The Associated Press, "French President Nicolas Sarkozy warned Monday that it would be 'catastrophic' to resort to military force in confronting Iran over its suspect nuclear program."


Clement Is Expected to Follow Policies of Gonzales, Ashcroft

Richard A. Serrano reports for the Los Angeles Times: "Named Monday as the acting US attorney general to temporarily succeed Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales, Clement is likely to closely follow the principles of his predecessors - Gonzales and former Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft. Like them, he has embraced the White House's mandate of waging war on terrorists in this country, even if it means diverging from longtime legal precepts of due process. He strongly believes in supporting case statutes and administration policy, whatever the consequences."



Top General Fears War Strain on National Guard

Andrew O. Selsky reports for The Associated Press, "The Pentagon is asking National Guard troops and their families to make sacrifices like never before in Iraq and other hot spots, the Army's chief of staff told a conference bringing together citizen-soldiers from across the country."



"Hartz IV"-Fragebogen in Hamburg sorgt für Empörung

August. Fragen an arbeitslose Hamburger, ob jemand gern exotisch isst oder Börsenkurse verfolgt, seien einfach nur bizarr.

Bush's Herd of Loyal Texas Advisers Continues to Thin

Dave Montgomery, of the McClatchy Newspapers writes: "They were fiercely loyal, unfailingly disciplined and, as a unit, offered the president a comforting touchstone from his home state. Now, Team Texas is moving ever closer to extinction. The already thinning cadre of advisers who followed George W. Bush from Austin to Washington is unraveling even further, with Alberto Gonzales and Karl Rove heading toward the door."



Bush's "War on Terror" Tactics Make America Less Safe, Less Free

Truthout's William Fisher writes: "The constitutional scholars who represented extraordinary-rendition victim Maher Arar charge that America is losing the 'war on terror' and the civil rights of its citizens because of Bush administration policies. In a new book, 'Less Safe, Less Free: Why America Is Losing the War on Terror,' law professors David Cole and Jules Lobel argue that the problem lies in the aggressive 'preventive paradigm' the Bush administration adopted in the wake of 9/11."



Massive Criminal Probe of Illegal Iraq Arms Sales Underway

James Glanz and Eric Schmitt, of The New York Times, report: "Several federal agencies are investigating a widening network of criminal cases involving the purchase and delivery of billions of dollars of weapons, supplies and other material to Iraqi and American forces, according to American officials. The officials said it amounted to the largest ring of fraud and kickbacks uncovered in the conflict here, the officials said. The inquiry has already led to several indictments of Americans, with more expected, the officials said. One of the investigations involves a senior American officer who worked closely with Gen. David H. Petraeus in setting up the logistics operation to supply the Iraqi forces when General Petraeus was in charge of training and equipping those forces in 2004 and 2005, American officials said Monday."

Bush: In the footsteps of Napoleon

Asia Times
by Juan Cole


French Egypt and American Iraq can be considered bookends on the history of modern imperialism in the Middle East. The Bush administration’s already failed version of the conquest of Iraq is, of course, on everyone’s mind; while the French conquest of Egypt, now more than two centuries past, is all too little remembered, despite having been led by Napoleon Bonaparte, whose career has otherwise hardly languished in obscurity. There are many eerily familiar resonances between the two misadventures, not least among them that both began with supreme arrogance and ended as fiascoes...

Burning the Law in a Riot of Treason

Truthout columnist William Rivers Pitt writes: "The departure of Alberto Gonzales from the Attorney General's Office brings America to a place of definitions, and hanging in the balance is the very idea of the nation itself. The basic concepts and fundamental principles of our republic now stand as the only legitimate considerations going forward, for they have been tested almost to annihilation already, and will not endure much longer if we continue on this path."

The Next War Draws Nearer

I continue to put the prospects for a major military operation targeting Iran down as "likely," and the time frame drawing nearer. When will Bush give the go ahead? I think late this year or early next would be the most congenial time frame from the perspective of the war party. Some of the developments that go into my call...

Conservative Republicans Have Only One Choice in 2008

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Let's cut to the chase: conservative Republicans have only one choice for President in 2008: Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Unlike the GOP frontrunners, Paul is the real deal. No real conservative could support Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Fred Thompson, or Newt Gingrich. When it comes to historic conservative principles, each of these men is as phony as a three dollar bill. That they are now attempting to cast themselves as conservatives is more than laughable: it is downright hilarious.......
