US Invade Pakistan — but no complaints from the ‘international community’

US Invade Pakistan — but no complaints from the ‘international community’
by William Bowles
I love it! I just came across an article, “Did We Just Invade Pakistan?” but you’ll search in vain for any headline in the mainstream media that even comes close to calling it a US invasion of Pakistan.

This is how the BBC reported it:

Pakistan has summoned the US ambassador to protest at an alleged cross-border raid which officials say killed at least 15 villagers in the north-west.”

Obama-Biden -- Osama bin Laden: A coincidence?

Obama-Biden -- Osama bin Laden: A coincidence?
by William Blum
Obama-Biden -- Osama bin Laden: A coincidence? I think not.
 
I'm sorry to say that I think that John McCain is going to be the next president of the United States.
 
After the long night of Bush horror any Democrat should easily win, but the Dems are screwing it up and McCain has been running more-or-less even with Barack Obama in the polls. The Democrats should run on the slogan "If you liked Bush, you'll love McCain", but that would be too outspoken, too direct for the spineless Nancy Pelosi and her spineless party. Or, "If you liked Iraq, you'll love Iran." But the Democrat leadership is not on record as categorically opposing either conflict.

Mr. Lunn: "We Want Say on Gulf Parks"

Natives Want Say on Gulf Parks
by Eric Pelkey
To hear that our MP, Gary Lunn, has committed $10 million for the acquisition of lands to add to the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve is another slap in the face to the Saanich tribes.

We have objected strenuously to all levels of government, including Lunn, about the establishment of the reserve without consultation with the Saanich tribes. They include Tsawout, Tsartlip, Pauquachin, Tseycum and Malahat First Nations.

All our grievances on this matter have been referred to the federal and B.C. treaty negotiators' offices, which tell us that if we do not enter the B.C. treaty process, they have no procedural way to deal with our grievances.

Who Lost Iraq? Maliki Jumping Off American Ship of State?

Who Lost Iraq? Is the Maliki Government Jumping Off the American Ship of State?
by Michael Schwartz
As the Bush administration was entering office in 2000, Donald Rumsfeld exuberantly expressed its grandiose ambitions for Middle East domination, telling a National Security Council meeting:
 
"Imagine what the region would look like without Saddam and with a regime that's aligned with U.S. interests. It would change everything in the region and beyond."
A few weeks later, Bush speechwriter David Frum offered an even more exuberant version of the same vision to the New York Times Magazine:
"An American-led overthrow of Saddam Hussein, and the replacement of the radical Baathist dictatorship with a new government more closely aligned with the United States, would put America more wholly in charge of the region than any power since the Ottomans, or maybe even the Romans."

News Gospel According to Lehrer and Rather

The Gospel According to Lehrer and Rather
by ANP
Journalist Dan Rather talks about corporate interests and covering politics.
 
 

 
American News Project: A lot has changed since the tumultuous conventions of 1968. Maverick journalists Dan Rather and Jim Lehrer lament the old days when political conventions were spontaneous and less immune to corporate influence. Both are searching for substance behind the spectacle.

Veteran for Peace: Resolving to Find the Truth

VFP LIGHTS THE WAY
by Mike Ferner
With the Republican Convention following hard on their annual meeting in this city, Veterans For Peace adopted two resolutions last week effectively firing signal flares into the path of whoever wins this November’s election, regardless of party.

The first was a resolution on Afghanistan, submitted by VFP president, Elliott Adams, which is likely to become a guidepost for a peace movement now almost exclusively concentrating on Iraq.

40 Years to Zero: When Government was Approachable

Remembering When the Government Was at Least Approachable
by Dave Lindorff
We’ve come a long way towards imperial government in the US—towards a view of the relationship between the federal government, and especially the administration, and the citizenry that has more of a ruler-subjects than a democratic feel to it.


Now I know it is easy to gloss over the way things were, and since I spent a few days in federal prison for protesting the Indochina War at the Pentagon in 1967, after being beaten by federal marshals for doing nothing more than exercising my constitutional right to protest on public ground, I am well aware that 40 years ago we were also often treated like serfs. But that said, there was something different back then—a sense that you could deal with powerful officials as an equal.

RNC Minneapolis Police Riot: First Person

RNC Minneapolis Police Riot: First Person 
by Colleen Mihal
Dear Friends; when you wake up this morning and read the headlines about McCain's speech, the latest horserace tally, and political predictions, I want you to be aware of events you may not read about, events that illuminate the real state of our democracy, events that brought me to tears (and it wasn't just from the gas).
 
 
 
I want to tell you about battle that raged on the streets of St. Paul- A battle waged by the police, backed, funded, and organized by the Department of Homeland Security, a battle against peaceful protesters, war veterans, concerned citizens, and journalists.

Israeli Army Terrorizes Witnesses to War Crimes

Palestinian village faces army reign of terror
by Jonathan Cook in Nilin
The window through which Salam Amira, 16, filmed the moment when an Israeli soldier shot from close range a handcuffed and blindfolded Palestinian detainee has a large hole at its centre with cracks running in every direction.
 
“Since my video was shown, the soldiers shoot at our house all the time,” she said. The shattered and cracked windows at the front of the building confirm her story. “When we leave the windows open, they fire tear gas inside too.”
 
Her home looks out over the Israeli road block guarding the only entrance to the village of Nilin, located just inside the West Bank midway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It was here that a bound Ashraf Abu Rahma, 27, was shot in the foot in July with a rubber bullet under orders from an Israeli regiment commander.
