Despite all the talk over the past 15 years about the US and coalition forces being engaged in various 'wars', there haven't actually been any. To have a war you need two sizable armies representing two opposing nation states both with the capability to wage war on each other. I'd be impressed if anyone can point to the US or any Western nation being involved in such a conflict over the past 15 years, anywhere in the world.

Depending on which of the shockingly few mainstream media corporations you prefer, somewhere between 36% and 62% of the US public believe that the US government is, at the very least, not telling the truth about the 9/11 attacks. If true, (and we have every reason to believe that the media corps down-play the figures) what does that mean for public perception of the 'Islamic terror threat' on which the 9/11 attacks are based?

On the morning of July 7th, 2005, someone detonated four carefully placed bombs in London. Having initially claimed that power surges in the underground power grid had caused explosions in power circuits, the British government quickly announced that this was a terrorist attack, and identified four 'home-grown Islamic suicide bombers'.

In an ideal society, those chosen to represent and lead the people would be chosen because they had shown 'leadership qualities' - honesty, integrity, intelligence (both emotional and intellectual) and, most importantly, a paternal or maternal protective instinct towards others. In short, leaders would be those that could effectively lead the society in a way that secured the best interests of all.

A friend recently asked me what I thought of the wikileaks business. The person said that they were still a little idealistic, and perhaps there are still some "good guys" out there who can really make a difference. I wondered, in terms of the wikileaks documents, precisely what kind of change could be hoped for?
SHARE Friday, April 2, 2010 Legislating Away Your Freedoms - One 'Homegrown Terrorist' At A Time
Two weeks ago Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman introduced a stunning piece of draconian diatribe euphemistically called the bipartisan Senate Bill 3081, or the 'Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010'1. The bill is 'bipartisan' in the sense that it is the product of at least two different types of psychopathic personality disorder.

Many civil liberties groups in the US are up in arms over Thursday's Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United V Federal Election Commission, that gives corporations free reign to spend as much money as they can afford (which is a lot) to influence American political election outcomes.
So what's new?

The 'underwear bomber' has not only re-affirmed the 'reality' of the war on terror but has given the Obama government the excuse to increase its bombing attacks on Yemen. But how seriously should we take the official story of this latest terror attack?

Israel justifies its bombardment of Gazan civilians with the claim that Hamas is firing rockets into Israel. But who are the real aggressors in the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
SHARE Wednesday, July 16, 2008 Sarkozy - Hello NATO, Goodbye France
French President Nicolas Sarkozy has styled himself as the great modernizer of France. Recent events however paint the very different picture of a man determined to turn back the clock on French civil liberties and transform France into a vassal state of America and a willing partner in its immoral war on terror.
