Papua Neuguinea: Thunfisch-Fabriken bedrohen regionales Ökosystem

Protest gegen Thunfischfabriken Protest gegen Thunfischfabriken

Der Südpazifik vor Papua Neuguinea gilt mit seinen großen Thunfischschwärmen als einer der letzten reichen Fischgründe der Weltmeere. In der Küstenstadt Madang sollen nun mit Unterstützung der Weltbank zehn große Thunfischfabriken errichtet werden. Das bislang reiche Fischangebot der Region wäre binnen weniger Jahre durch die industrielle Fischerei vernichtet und Madangs malerische Küste unwiederbringlich zerstört. Bitte unterstützen Sie die einheimische Bevölkerung beim Protest gegen diese Pläne.

The great banking scam

Is adulation of the military really patriotic?

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


The nation’s founders would roll over in their graves at what patriotism has become. After their bad experience with British colonial military abuses and seeing European citizens paying with blood and treasure for the frequent wars of their monarchs, the founders feared standing armies for undermining liberty. The U.S. Constitution rejected European militarism in favor of tight congressional controls over the employment, organization, and funding of the U.S. armed forces. Since World War II, those controls — such as congressional declarations of war — have been severely eroded. And the American public, still feeling guilty over the admittedly terrible treatment of returning draftees from the Vietnam War, has retained its awe of the now voluntary military as an institution, even as it has soured on the Iraq and Afghan Wars. Even while fighting two unpopular wars, the public has supported huge defense budgets all out of proportion to what is needed to defend the country. Is this healthy for a republic?

Obama's Choice: Failed War President or the Prince of Peace?

Nick Turse, "When the Nobel Committee awarded its annual Peace Prize to President Barack Obama, it afforded him a golden opportunity seldom offered to American war presidents: the possibility of success. Should he decide to go the peace-maker route, Obama stands a chance of really accomplishing something significant. On the other hand, history suggests that the path of war is a surefire loser. As president after president has discovered, especially since World War II, the US military simply can't seal the deal on winning a war."


Nobel? That’s no prize

Nolan Chart
by John Kozy


Excellent journalism was never a priority of Joseph Pulitzer’s, and the prizes reflect it. So does the mainstream press which is yellower than ever in both the conventional journalistic sense and the colloquial sense of cowardly. Even worse, however, are the Nobels. They are almost always given to those committed to Western civilization and Capitalism. So now Obama has gotten the prize. Why was it awarded to him? Because he is a protector of the economic status quo and a hegemonist — a true child of a decadent civilization. The deadly arms manufacturer would be highly pleased...

A Letter to Members of the US Military on Their Way to Afghanistan

Nick Mottern, Truthout: "When you lace up your boots and head for the plane that will carry you to Afghanistan, you will be joining Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, ExxonMobil chief Rex Tillerson and Gurbangulu Berdimuhamedov in what has been described in the US Congress as 'the new great game'."

The Washington Post Creates Its Own Facts to Support Afghan Nation-Building

Melvin A. Goodman, Truthout: "The Washington Post is creating its own facts in order to support its argument for US nation-building in Afghanistan. In its lead editorial on Saturday, the Post asserted that the United States is capable of building a strong government in Afghanistan at the national and local levels. The Post claimed that Afghanistan had had a 'working national government through most of the 1970s and 1980s.' This is simply not so."

Bill That Would Block Release of Torture Photos Expected to Be Signed Into Law

Yana Kunichoff, Truthout: "In an unprecedented move, Congress passed legislation Tuesday including an amendment which would maintain one of the most contentious hangovers of the Bush administration, allowing the Department of Defense to exempt torture photos of US detainees overseas from public access under Freedom of Information Act requests."
