Plato's cave 3, From ImagesAttr

House of Horrors -Smashing Plato's Cave A fear of losing your job... the fear of being stuck with some label, unpatriotic or otherwise... the war turned reporters into stenographers. It is time to focus on homegrown terrorists who pose as saviours; the gutless assassins of the CIA and its secret affiliates, flinging Drones at impoverished tribes, killing the good and the bad and the babies, just like in Vietnam.

DRACULA'S ARMY You get the sense that the burgers are washed down with lavish tumblers of blood. Often the blood of innocents. It becomes an addiction, perhaps, an insatiable desire that's part Gothic and part Surrealist, like a videogame played on a helicopter hovering over Transylvania.

Apocalypse Porno - The Beat Goes On Are you scared yet? Instead of a leisurely process with oodles of time to drive to Paris in a sports car with Anna Wintour on your lap, the transformation to a hothouse world will be abrupt.

Trigger Happy in Kabul There are no easy answers. Curbing air strikes is a start, as well as holding clean elections. Many westerners seek a bright future for Afghanistan and the voices of the well informed, and of the local people, must prevail over trigger happy soldiers, secret geo-political maneuverings and the endless flood of Kabul-shit.

The AfPak Blues It started as a revenge for 9/11, easy as shooting quails in a barrel. "Kill the bastards" screamed Murdoch's pet Aussie ranter in the New York Post, "a gunshot between the eyes ... blow their countries into basketball courts". And we did.

The Torturer's Apprentice The act of rendition began with a bunch of Americans in balaclavas, wearing black T-shirts, grey pants & yellow boots, beating him black and blue. They cut off his clothes, rammed a suppository up his rectum and fitted him with nappy and tracksuit...

PICKLED HEADS, MUDCAKES, RIVERS OF BABYLON Growth is Vanity Fair, Lear Jets, Sex in the City. Sustainability is Adbusters, bicycles, sex in the haystack. And now, just as eco awareness is spreading, the financial meltdown hits.

The Baby Killers In an era when Geneva is mocked, dissent ineffective and baby killing tolerated, it is strangely perfect that a presidential aspirant and his running mate should have blood on their hands, whether of Vietnamese civilians or an Alaskan Moose.

Washington comes to Mr Smith 450 schoolgirls, a transparent blouse, a choral rendition of What a Wonderful World. No wonder Condoleezza Rice says"There is no better friend to the United States than Australia". Right now, probably the only friend.

The Age of Eco Surrealism "You're all just playing with Climate Change", she said, "you haven't mentioned fences or guns"... or yellow pellets, or fading boomers fiddling with worm farms while sales of Lear Jets soar, or even the age of gothic malice, or eating the rich. So having digested these warnings, have I become clinically depressed?

STORM IN AN A-CUP When Sydney police swooped on an upmarket art gallery on the eve of an exhibition of photographs by Australia's internationally renowned artist Bill Henson, pandemonium struck. Photographs of pubescent children were removed by police. The tabloid press applauded the censorship and described the images as "child porn". The gallery owners received death threats.

PINE GAP MIND GAP: A TERROR CELL THAT NEVER SLEEPS Four Christian activists were recently put on trial for penetrating Pine Gap, a top secret military base in Central Australia which hosts the largest CIA facility outside the USA. The base provides targeting info to coalition commanders in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, not all of it accurate. Australian citizens remain unaware of their vital role in the "war on terror" and of Pine Gap's devastating impact.

Australia's "Sorry" inspires the White House "These injustices must never happen again," the Prime Minister said, "they are a great stain on the nation's soul". For thirty minutes he held the nation in his hands, as millions cheered, applauded and wept. Watching a broadcast of the apology in the White House, George Bush was transfixed...

THE SPEECH FROM HELL These issues call for vigorous debate, and I think it's fair to say we've ignored the call. Yet history will record that amid our differences, we acted with malice. All of us were sent to Washington to carry out the business of billionaires. That is the purpose of this body.

Is this man a psychopath? The Bomber's tactic was on track. The gloves were off. Over the next three months, NATO would set out to prove that its air force could kill more civilians than the number achieved by the Taliban.
