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.

Getting the World Order You Deserve

Global Realignment: How Bush Inspired a New World Order
by Ramzy Baroud
The series of unfortunate and costly decisions made during the two terms of the Bush administration, combined with economic decline at home, might devastate the US's world standing much sooner than most analysts predict.
What was difficult to foresee was that the weakening of US global dominance, spurred by erratic and unwise foreign policy under Bush, would re-ignite the Cold War, to a degree, over a largely distant and seemingly ethnically-based conflict -- that of Georgia and Russia. Who could have predicted a possible association between Baghdad, Kabul and Tbilisi?

But to date the decline of US global power to the advent of the Bush administration, or even the horrific events of 11 September 2001, is not exactly accurate.

The Nightly Noise: Media and Message

by Media Lens
One tragicomic consequence of this self-imposed simple-mindedness is the inability of the mainstream media to make sense of last month's war in Georgia. Journalists kept a straight face as they communicated George Bush's demand that "Russia's government must respect Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty."
Few felt inclined to mention the small matter of Bush's own invasion of sovereign Iraq, or the US-driven separation of Kosovo from sovereign Serbia.

Gordon Brown, proud 'liberator' of Iraq, or what remains of it, somehow avoided choking on his own hypocrisy as he insisted:
  • "when Russia has a grievance over an issue such as South Ossetia, it should act multilaterally by consent rather than unilaterally by force."

RNC 8 Charged with "Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism"

BREAKING: RNC 8 Charged with "Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance
of Terrorism in
by IMC
In what appears to be the first use of criminal charges under the 2002 Minnesota version of the Federal Patriot Act, Ramsey County Prosecutors have formally charged 8 alleged leaders of the RNC Welcoming Committee with Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism. Monica Bicking, Eryn Trimmer, Luce Guillen Givins, Erik Oseland, Nathanael Secor, Robert Czernik, Garrett Fitzgerald, and Max Spector, face up to 7 1/2 years in prison under the terrorism enhancement charge which allows for a 50% increase in the maximum penalty.
Affidavits released by law enforcement which were filed in support of the search warrants used in raids over the weekend, and used to support probable cause for the arrest warrants, are based on paid, confidential informants who infiltrated the RNCWC on behalf of law enforcement. They allege that members of the group sought to kidnap delegates to the RNC, assault police officers with firebombs and explosives, and sabotage airports in St. Paul.

Can a party of old white men with ideas as old as the amber waves of grain be rescued by a little lady from Alaska? 

Old Fred Thompson from good old Rocky Top hitched his pants and gave a speech he might have delivered four decades ago. 

Old Joe Lieberman, the whining wonder of Connecticut, who cast aside his own party to keep hold of the reigns of power, gave the same old appeal he might have given for the party of opposition eight years ago.

Canadians Killed in Afghanistan: The Limits to Potential

The Limits to Potential
by C. L. Cook
I heard the news bulletin over the loudspeakers in the government liquor store today:
  • "Three Canadians killed in an ambush. Eight in the armoured vehicle. Five injured: One critical."
The three Canadian soldiers, from left, Pte. Chad Horn,
Cpl. Andrew Grenon, and Cpl. Mike Seggie, were killed in
southern Afghanistan on Wednesday morning. (DND)

I wrote last week of three other Canadians cut down fighting the battle, waging this endless mission to defend Afghanistan against self-determination. Of one of the three killed today, the DND said he was a professional soldier, and at 21 possessed "unlimited potential."

Victoria Anarchist Bookfair Fun Fair

Victoria Anarchist Bookfair Fun Fair
by The Victoria Anarchist Bookfair Collective
No, organized anarchism is not an oxymoron!  And no, anarchism is not synonymous with chaos.  Rather, anarchists seek to organize in a federated, that is, non-hierarchical, system that allows for self-governance. 
The core values of mutual aid and autonomy dictate that each individual has the intrinsic right to exercise her or his own will, but that as a corporate body, individuals work to support each other.

As such, the local anarchists have been working hard all summer to bring together the Festival of Anarchy, September 7th through 12th, and the 3rd Annual Anarchist Bookfair, September 13th and 14th. The Festival is a week of events leading up the Bookfair.

Leaning on Rove: Siegelman Still at Issue for Former Bush Brain

Reeling in Rove 
by Dana Siegelman
I was sitting on the floor of a radio studio in Denver, watching Air America host Thom Hartman interview David Sirota, syndicated journalist and author of The Uprising, while they talked about the presidential election and the politics to follow soon after. As David explained;
  • "It is up to the people to hold our leaders' feet to the fire; we cannot simply assume that they will take care of the issues that matter most to us."
This was my purpose in accompanying Dad to the Democratic National Convention.

Camera Shy Republicans: Goodman and Producers Busts at RNC

Amy Goodman Arrested
by Democracy Now!
­Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman was unlawfully arrested in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota at approximately 5 p.m. local time. Police violently manhandled Goodman, yanking her arm, as they arrested her. Video of her arrest can be seen here:

Goodman was arrested while attempting to free two Democracy Now! producers who were being unlawfuly detained. They are Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar. Kouddous and Salazar were arrested while they carried out their journalistic duties in covering street demonstrations at the Republican National Convention. Goodman’s crime appears to have been defending her colleagues and the freedom of the press.
