Sarah Palin and Alaska Natives- Part 2 "Despite strong Indian support at the convention, Palin has drawn concern from some Alaska Natives, especially on issues surrounding an initiative to stop development of the Pebble Mine adjacent to the Bristol Bay fishing grounds, which is a prime area for both commercial and subsistence salmon fishing."

Sarah Palin and Alaska Natives Part 1 A recent web article is worthy of some review and discussion in regards to Governor Palin's "Record on Alaska Native and Tribal Issues". It is good when substantive policy issues are referenced in the discussion of Palin.

A Water Resolution for America In a resolution intended to focus attention on the national and international issues surrounding water, the EcoAction Committee of the Green Party of the United States has raised the concerns of Greens and provided a template for further internal discussion, public education and candidate consideration.

India, Shiva and Water The issue of public infrastructure investment impacts on the issue of water management and the political tasks required to influence and elect policy makers. Unless we formulate a political strategy that promotes structural reforms by integrating regional stakeholders into the decision-making process, the issue of privatization will continue to dominate the debate.

Longshoremen Up the Ante Against the War Without real change the "Hope" that is so bandied about by the Democrats and Republicans will be an illusion that disappears after election day.

Time for Kurdish Rights Who is being unrealistic here? Is it the Kurds who confront the power of the largest military states of Turkey and Iran in the region that have demonstrated a hostile intent towards Kurdish people or the KRG that acts to establish the needed economic, political and military infrastructure that can build for the future without the shadow of genocide looming over them?

Democratic Challengers or Third Party Alternatives I for one cannot agree either that the Democratic Party is capable of presenting significant policy changes and structural reforms before the American people or that the Democratic primary system and candidates lie at the root of the failure to redefine the opposition in a manner to make it more relevant to the American people.

Kurdish National Claims Disputed and Compared to Israel Without getting pulled into the discussion of Israel, it is incumbent that the political rights of Kurdish people not be defined outside of political entities that do not represent them. States exist to empower people into forging a common national direction and building a common economical structure that is stable and empowers people in their day-to-day lives.

Turkish Military Looks for US "Sincerity" Along with the carrot came a decisive declaration by the Turkish Prime Minister in the same issue of the paper. He stated unequivocally before the : "The enemy is an element that must be eliminated, and to do this we have to be united." Unity with Turkey remains pre-conditioned with sanctioning its present military actions against Kurds. History repeats itself.

The American Case Against Turkish Invasion We have no right to impose on the Kurdish people, given the actions of Saddam Hussein, the requirement to support any subjugation of the Kurdish nation.

Kurdistan Moving Forward Toward the Kirkuk Referendum The Kurdish Regional Government has worked within the institutional framework of the Iraqi Constitutional process from the beginning. It has neither provoked any particular sect or political organization of Iraq nor has it attempted to undermine the sovereignty of the existing government. The promise of the Kurdish Regional Government is stated unequivocally:

Let no one say Kurds are dead; Kurds Are Living To the Kurdish nation, a new sense of shared sacrifice. To Kurdistan, a determination to never allow the next generation to be forced to endure such a sight again. To the world an irrefutable historical document announcing the message of Kurdistan.

Kurdish Civil War Warning The response from President Barzani is a singular notification to the US government of the intentions of the Kurdish Regional Government and the armed forces under its control. It also is a warning to Turkey and the current Iraqi government of the position of Kurdish peoples. There is nothing in this interview that might be misconstrued.

Kurdistan, Not Iraq, is the Success Story (Part 2) For the Kurdish nation and peoples there is no retreating to prior historical strategies to achieve victory. These options have been tried for the past 30 years in Turkey. There is no gain if this moment is allowed to pass in history without decisive leadership and precise action.

The Building Blocs for Peace for Kurdistan The construction of the Kurdish nation is in its first stages. It has come remarkably far in a remarkably short period of time. Every step forward is a new step and every action becomes a precedent upon which the next action can be based.

The News of Wars and Rumors of Wars Let's begin with the primary goals: Demilitarization of the region, Withdraw from Occupied Territories, Recognition of Nation-Building Projects, Accountability for Human Rights and War Crimes, Accountability Within the US Government and Regional Oversight. There are many facets and projects that fall underneath each of these overall objectives. There are many mechanisms that need to be enhanced and developed.
