Attack on Iran Said To Be Imminent

In a sign that U.N. Security Council-based diplomacy is losing steam, a number of sources are reporting that a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities may be imminent. France and America also are pushing for tighter economic sanctions against Tehran, without U.N. approval.

Democrats Were Charged To End A War, Not Start One

By Mike Gravel

Joe Lieberman wrote the resolution authorizing the invasion of Iraq that was passed with Democratic support on October 11, 2002. Lieberman's new resolution setting up a Bush-Cheney invasion of Iran passed by 76 to 22 with Democratic backing on September 26, 2007. These are two dates that will live in infamy in the 21st century.

Wahlcomputer ausgemustert: Niederlande wählt wieder auf Papier

September 27, 2007

Die Regierung der Niederlande hat entschieden, die Verordnungen, auf denen die Zulassung der NEDAP-Wahlcomputer beruhen, zurückzuziehen. Damit wird in den Niederlanden nun wieder mit Papier und Stift gewählt. Berlin, Amsterdam (27.09.2007) - Die Entscheidung erfolgte als Reaktion auf den Bericht einer unabhängigen Untersuchungskommission zur Reform des Wahlverfahrens. Die in den Niederlanden hergestellten und dort fast flächendeckend verwendeten Wahlcomputer der Firma NEDAP sind praktisch baugleich mit den in Deutschland verwendeten Systemen. Durch eine gemeinsam vom Chaos Computer Club und der niederländischen Stiftung "Wij vertrouwen stemcomputers niet" durchgeführte Analyse war im Oktober 2006 bekannt geworden, dass die NEDAP-Wahlcomputer einfach zu manipulieren sind und damit die Wahl mit geringem Entdeckungsrisiko gefälscht werden kann.Aus den vielschichtigen Problemen hinsichtlich möglicher Manipulationsmethoden an Wahlcomputern in den Niederlanden und Deutschland und dem daraus folgende Verlust des Wählervertrauens in die Computer hat die niederländische Regierung nun also die Konzequenz gezogen.

"Dass selbst im Mutterland der NEDAP-Wahlcomputer die Bedenken über die bekannt gewordenen prinzipiellen Probleme mit Computer-Wahlen zu entschiedenem Handeln der Regierung führen, verdeutlicht, wie ernst die Situation ist. Die Bundesregierung sollte die niederländische Entscheidung zum Anlass nehmen, die Zulassung der Wahlcomputer noch vor den Landtagswahlen in Hessen und Niedersachsen zurückzuziehen, auch um eine internationale Blamage zu vermeiden", sagte Dirk Engling, Sprecher des Chaos Computer Club.

Bei den Landtagswahlen am 27. Januar in Hessen und Niedersachsen sollen nach derzeitigem Stand der Dinge wiederum NEDAP-Wahlcomputer zum Einsatz kommen. Da in den Niederlanden tausende NEDAP-Wahlcomputer nicht mehr verwendet werden dürfen, steht zu erwarten, dass clevere Geschäftemacher versuchen werden, die Wahlcomputer billig an deutsche Gemeinden zu verkaufen, mit dem Argument, sie seien hier ja noch zugelassen.

Dies verdeutlicht, dass nun ein schnelles Handeln der deutschen Regierung erforderlich ist. Der Chaos Computer Club fordert daher die Bundesregierung auf, die Zulassung der in Deutschland noch immer eingesetzen Wahlcomputer der Firma NEDAP sofort zurückzuziehen und den § 35 Bundeswahlgesetz, der die Stimmabgabe mit "Wahlgeräten" erlaubt, ersatzlos zu streichen.

Die Frage, ob die Verwendung von Wahlcomputern in Deutschland mit den Grundsätzen eines freien, gleichen, geheimen, manipulationsfesten und vom Bürger nachvollziehbaren Wahlverfahrens vereinbar ist, beschäftigt derzeit auch das Bundesverfassungsgericht. Der Chaos Computer Club hat dazu eine eine ausführliche Stellungnahme abgegeben.

Unease caused by school mast

Plans for a mobile phone mast at a north Watford school have created a "deep unease" among councillors.

Nonetheless Watford's development control committee has approved plans for the new structure, at Orchard School, Gammons Lane, to replace an existing mast.

The decision will allow a new service provider, H3G, to operate from the site, which is already used by Orange and O2.


Blinded by hatred?

by Per Bylund


What disturbs me about the pro-war position of so-called libertarians, and their fierce defense of war itself as a legitimate means for a greater collective good, is that it is so contradictory it beats every available schoolbook example of what is a contradiction. Individual rights are sacrificed in order to save individual rights and our ‘way of life.’ They say ‘we’ must do something ‘now,’ yet the persons arguing this point are certainly not going to do anything. They are so busy writing blog posts defending the killings in distant countries they simply don’t have time to do the killing themselves. … Why this interest in people they don’t know dying for the sake of protecting rights that are already being abolished in every western nation? I simply don’t see how anyone can claim to be a proponent of individual rights while advocating wars where the lives of some individuals are forcefully sacrificed for the collective good and freedom of others...

The money has to come from somewhere

The Free Liberal
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)


After the current turmoil in the markets, I was hoping that new Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke would see the big picture and act judiciously. Instead he signaled, with an aggressive rate cut, that we can expect a continuation of the monetary policies that got us here to begin with. Alan Greenspan released his memoir this week explaining his policies and decisions in the wake of the irrational exuberance they fueled. His successor should see that it is now time for a change of policy that addresses the root of our troubles. But instead of seeing an inflation problem, the Federal Reserve sees a liquidity problem, which is a little like extinguishing a forest fire with gasoline...

Open fire

The American Conservative
by Paul W. Schroeder


Two major facts must be recognized at the outset: the fire in Iraq (though not Afghanistan) could have been prevented, and the American government deliberately decided against doing so. These are not controversial assertions but undeniable facts. Other questions about preventing fires at this time remain debatable — whether the attacks of 9/11 might have been averted or blunted by better intelligence and quicker action, whether the Clinton administration could have weakened al-Qaeda earlier, whether a more determined campaign in Afghanistan could have destroyed al-Qaeda and prevented further terrorism. But this much is certain: first, the Bush administration, supported by most of the Congress and the American people, decided to treat an alleged potential threat of explosion emanating from Iraq as more imminent and dangerous than the actual fire burning in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and elsewhere; and second, it chose against resistance at home and widespread opposition from the international community not to use existing, standard methods of fire prevention...

Should schools fingerprint your kids?

by Steven Gray


The lunch lines weren’t moving fast enough for Linda Stoll, head of food programs at the Boulder Valley, Colo., school district. Because of that, kids had barely enough time to sit and eat before the lunch period was over. So, last year, Stoll began looking for ways to speed up the queue. She discovered that many students, especially kindergarteners, can’t remember their six-digit ID number, which they’re required to type into keypads at the end of lunch lines. She then found out that there was technology that would allow a scanner to identify a kid qualified for lunch with the swipe of a finger, moving him or her quickly along. It would help kids who regularly forget their lunch money, and it would potentially remove some of the stigma faced by children who receive special tickets for free or reduced lunch. She proposed the idea, believing it would be the perfect solution. It turned out to be the perfect storm...

Mountaintop Mining Called "Genocide" of Appalachia

Mountaintop Mining Called "Genocide" of Appalachia

Andrea Hopkins, Reuters: "Coal mining has sustained generations of Americans in Appalachia, an isolated and often impoverished region stretching across America's eastern interior.... But while the US appetite for coal has long bumped against the environmental impact of mining, the growth of mountaintop removal has divided residents as never before."

The Government Sanctioned Blasting of Appalachia

Writing for, Antrim Caskey says, "On a calm, clear morning in the forested mountains of southern West Virginia, 12-year-old Chrystal Gunnoe played outdoors in the green mountain valley where her family has lived for hundreds of years. It was Veterans Day and a school holiday. Chrystal's mother, Maria Gunnoe, 38, was inside when she heard her daughter yell for help."

Arthur Firstenberg, who founded the Cellular Phone Task Force, wrote that, on November 14, 1996, New York City's first digital cellular provider activated thousands of PCS antennae newly erected on the rooftops of apartment buildings. Health authorities reported that a severe and lingering flu hit the city that same week."
