Deconstructing Brzezinski

Deconstructing Brzezinski's Russia  
by Jim Miles
The warrior ethic of the American Imperial elite, embodied in its fullest measure by Zbigniew Brzezinski, has been rejuvenated momentarily by Russia’s attack on Georgia. 
 
 
Reading Brzezinski’s words leaves one choking on their overt hypocrisy or laughing insanely at the obvious absurdity of them.  His writing technique is flawless, based on the big lie technique – tell it straight up, tell it often enough, and ignorant masses will tend to believe it.

The Saakashvili Experiment

The Saakashvili Experiment
by Ramzy Baroud
Just as the world's attention was focussed on China's Beijing Olympics, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, on 7 August, invaded the tiny breakaway province of South Ossetia. The initial attack on the South Ossetian capital, Tskninvali, soon extended to an all out war, which eventually invited Russia's wrath, and the death of thousands of innocent civilians on both sides.

Prior to Saakashvili's war, little was known about the political specifics of that area and the brewing decades-long territorial disputes which date back to the early 20th century, highlighted during an intense civil war that followed the break-up of the Soviet Union and its satellite states. Georgia's successful secession from the Soviet grip, understandably, inspired independence fervour in ethnic regions within Georgia.

There is Just the Dead

There is Just the Dead
by C. L. Cook
There is no law. Justice is dead. There is no honour; just death. There is no democracy. Democracy was killed.
 
A moment of silence please in passing remembrance of three men killed dead for democracy and justice and the rule of law. Three Canadian men gone, killed for a country that predeceased them.

Winning Back the Woods

UNITY NEEDED TO WIN BACK THE WOODS
by Richard Boyce
Monday August 18 at 6:45 am I pulled on my steel-toed cork boots, buttoned up my timber-cruising vest, and put a hard hat on my head.  With a firm grip on my video camera I climbed up a steep embankment following two fallers headed for the timberline. 
 
Hiking through the debris of the slash-cut we followed a ribboned route, which they had cleared of many branches, by balancing along logs bucked to length.  We regrouped at the edge of the old-growth forest and discussed the practicalities of my videotaping them at work.

While the 24-year old, with 5 years falling experience, cut away the huckleberry bushes and small saplings, the older faller talked with me about the reality of his industry.

Kafka’s Porn Cache: Six Questions for James Hawes

In Pursuit of Kafka’s Porn Cache: Six Questions for James Hawes
by Scott Horton
James Hawes had a brilliant start to his career as a novelist with A White Merc with Fins, and he’s gone on to have one of his works filmed and to write a work of biting satire. But before Hawes was a novelist, he was a Kafka scholar.
 
And now he has returned to his old passion with a book entitled Why You Should Read Kafka Before You Waste Your Life (published as Excavating Kafka in Britain).
 
The book has kicked up a storm in Germany, where its satirical style has gone unappreciated. I put six questions to James Hawes about Franz Kafka and a book designed to debunk the Kafka mythmakers which is accused of making some of its own.

Rattling Sabres and Bear Baiting

NATO Warns Russia: Western powers send tough message; Russian minister responds
by The Real News
NATO allies warned Russia on Tuesday that the alliance's cooperation with Moscow would depend on the pullout of troops from Georgia.
 
They insisted Georgia remained on track to join NATO despite Moscow's opposition. The emergency meeting in Brussels highlighted a rift within the 27-nation bloc between former Soviet satellite nations wanting tough action against Russia and western European members warning against antagonizing Moscow.
 
 
 
In an editorial from The Independent newspaper entitled “NATO is walking a tightrope over Georgia” Anne Penketh states that “[NATO] foreign ministers want to send a tough message to the Kremlin, but the big powers know that they cannot afford to isolate Moscow which remains an essential partner for the US and Europe in dealing with other major crises such as the showdown with Iran over its nuclear programme.”

An Open Letter to the Real News: Can News Get Real?

Attention Paul Jay, CEO The Real News Network
by Michael Major
Hello Paul, just watched your latest news articles on the evolution of the Georgia issue and I was pleased you and Margolis raised the remotest possibility that the action against South Ossetia was planned by the USA as a diversion or emblematic soapbox for the war party (but which war party?). 
 
But of course it was planned.
 
The US armed, strategized, financed and assisted Georgia with the means to purify, terrify and ethnically cleanse South Ossetia of its ethnic russians without whom little Georgia could be framed for the press as an Israeli clone surrounded by deadly ethnic adversaries and brutal geo-strategic opponents.

Ready For Nuclear War?

Are You Ready For Nuclear War?
by Paul Craig Roberts
Pervez Musharraf, the puppet installed by the US to rule Pakistan in the interest of US hegemony, resigned August 18 to avoid impeachment. Karl Rove and the Diebold electronic voting machines were unable to control the result of the last election in Pakistan, the result of which gave Pakistanis a bigger voice in their government than America’s.

It was obvious to anyone with any sense--which excludes the entire Bush Regime and almost all of the “foreign policy community”--that the illegal and gratuitous US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and Israel’s 2006 bombing of Lebanon civilians with US blessing, would result in the overthrow of America’s Pakistani puppet.

Truth and Consequences Under the Israeli Occupation

Truth and Consequences Under the Israeli Occupation
by Mohammed Omer
I am a Palestinian journalist from Gaza. At the age of 17, I armed myself with a camera and a pen, committed to report accurately on events in Gaza.
 
I have filed reports as Israeli fighter jets bombed Gaza City.
 
I have interviewed mothers as they watched their children die in hospitals unequipped to serve them because of Israel's embargo.
 
I have been recognized for my reporting, even in the United States and United Kingdom, where I have won two international awards.
 
I have also been beaten and tortured by Israeli soldiers.
