Moving Into Putin's Powderkeg

Marching Through Georgia V: U.S. Forces Moving Into Putin's Powderkeg
by Chris Floyd     
Here's a great idea: Why not send U.S. military forces to Georgia, one of the most volatile places on earth at the moment? That way, American troops, ships and planes can go eyeball-to-eyeball with Russian forces on a war footing?

Sound like a good plan? It does to ole Butt-Thumper Bush, who made another one of his squinty appearances outside the White House on Wednesday to announce that American military forces are going to Georgia to carry out a "humanitarian mission."
[Let's hope it doesn't turn out like the "humanitarian mission" that Daddy Bush sent into the volatile war zone of Somalia back in 1992.]

Nuclear Brinkmanship Makes a Comeback: Hot August Night on the World Stage

Will American Insouciance Destroy the World?
by Paul Craig Roberts
The neoconned Bush Regime and the Israeli-occupied American media are heading the innocent world toward nuclear war.

Back in the Reagan years, the National Endowment for Democracy was created as a cold war tool. Today the NED is a neocon-controlled agent for US world hegemony. Its main function is to pour US money and election-rigging into former constituent parts of the Soviet Union in order to ring Russia with American puppet states.

Re-Chilling the Cold War: Putin and Pro-Georgian Propaganda

Putin Walks into a Trap
by Mike Whitney
The American-armed and trained Georgian army swarmed into South Ossetia last Thursday, killing an estimated 2,000 civilians, sending 40,000 South Ossetians fleeing over the Russian border, and destroying much of the capital, Tskhinvali.
The attack was unprovoked and took place a full 24 hours before even ONE Russian soldier set foot in South Ossetia. Nevertheless, the vast majority of Americans still believe that the Russian army invaded Georgian territory first.
The BBC, AP, NPR, the New York Times and the rest of the establishment media has consistently and deliberately misled its readers into believing that the violence in South Ossetia was initiated by the Kremlin. Let's be clear, it wasn't.
In truth, there is NO dispute about the facts except among the people who rely the western press for their information. Despite its steady loss of credibility, the corporate media continues to operate as the propaganda-arm of the Pentagon.

Muslim Innocence Project Convening

by Muslim Innocence Project 
Muslims have been unfairly treated by the Bush Administration since 911. There have been many unjust prosecutions involving guilt by association, innuendo and twisted sting operations designed to entrap those the government has decided it doesn’t like.
These cases have trampled the constitutional rights of the defendants and put us all at risk. Come learn about a few of these cases and participate in discussion of where to go from here.

Cracking the Pentagon Propaganda Code

CMD Cracks Open the Pentagon Propaganda Documents 
by Center for Media and Democracy
In early 2002, the Pentagon began cultivating retired military officers who frequently serve as media commentators to help make the case for invading Iraq.
The pundit program continued -- promoting the Bush administration's stance on the Guantanamo Bay detention center, warrantless wiretapping and other controversial issues -- until New York Times reporter David Barstow exposed its existence in April 2008.

Fairly Unbalanced: 'Wild Earth' and Public Eye

Wild Earth in the Public Eye
by Zoe Blunt
Last week, I took a call from Public Eye Online editor Sean Holman about the upcoming Wild Earth eco-conference in Bella Coola. Holman suggested it wasn't "appropriate" to invite anti-poverty activist Thomas Malenfant to host a workshop on Resisting the Olympics at a gathering focused on discussing non-violent activism.

Referring to Malenfant's arrest last year for symbolically evicting the Premier from his Vancouver office, Holman asked why a "convicted criminal" was on the schedule for Wild Earth.

I reminded him that a convicted criminal is running the province, and asked what kind of double standard Holman is trying to invoke. The suggestion that Malenfant should not be allowed to discuss his political work and experience is ridiculous and insulting.

Klein: China and Disaster Cap.

China new disaster-capitalism trough
Naomi Klein: Billions of dollars spent on Olympic security, China buys tools of war on terror (2 of 4)
by The Real News
Naomi Klein: Iraq was the trough for awhile. The Department of Homeland Security has been a pretty good trough. Building Fortress Europe has been a good trough. And what I mean by public money that is just transferred to private corporations in the name of fighting an endless war on terror. And we see it in this feeding frenzy around the world. The Green Zone is sort of, maybe, the epicenter of this feeding frenzy.

But China is the new trough, because basically what the government in Beijing has said is,
  • "We will spend whatever it takes to secure our country, and we want the latest technology and the best toys."

The Kremlin Surge

Marching Through Georgia II: The Kremlin Surge
by Chris Floyd     
As events move swiftly, and ominously, in the conflict between Georgia and Russia, an understanding of the background of the conflict is essential. Several pieces have appeared just today providing some good context and analysis.

First, Ellen Barry (with whom I once worked at the Moscow Times) gives an overview of South Ossetia's history and the tensions that have stalked the region since the break-up of the Soviet Union in this analysis piece from the New York Times. (The NYT's news roundup of the latest events  is co-written by Anne Barnard, yet another former colleague from the Moscow Times.)

Ottawa Set to Host Merchants of Death Fair

Stop Ottawa's Arms Shows!
Here are some links to new materials added to the Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade (COAT) website.
Please join us in exposing and opposing "Secure Canada 2008" (Sept.30-Oct.1) and "CANSEC 2009" — two blatant manifestations of the international arms trade that are now scheduled to take place at a City of Ottawa facility despite a 1989 municipal ban on such events.
