Pakistan's Unstable Hour

Pakistan's Plight
by Tariq Ali
A multidimensional charade is taking place in Pakistan, and it is not an edifying sight. Pervez Musharraf has discarded his uniform and is trying to cling to power, whatever the cost.

So far it has been high: the dismissal of the Supreme Court judges and their replacement by stooges; police brutality against a strong lawyers' movement protesting the military assault on the judiciary; and the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, who had returned to Pakistan as part of an ill-judged deal brokered by the Bush Administration and its British acolytes.

Add to this the sad spectacle of supposedly reformist, Western-backed politicians assembling like old family retainers at the feudal home of the slain leader and rubber-stamping her political will: Bhutto's husband, Asif Ali Zardari, has become stopgap supremo till her 19-year-old son, Bilawal, can replace his late mother as chairperson-for-life.

Intentional Human Suffering

Unimaginable Intentional Human Suffering
by Peter Chamberlin
Perhaps one day we shall know the truth about being, and being alive on planet earth, whether life on every living planet is as messed-up as it is here. 
 
Earth's problems must be unique, as they are of man's own creation, man-made disasters caused by ambitious men who are allowed to rise to the top, where they dominate us for self-gain. 
 
We allow our leaders to take the positions of power that they desire, instead of actually choosing who shall lead us.  Humans tend to submit to those who claim authority, since it is easier to believe in symbols of power, than it is to personally submit to the tedium of the reasoning process. 
 
As a people, we tend to follow the natural order of things along the path of least resistance.  By taking the easy way out, we give our blessing to the law of the jungle.

Kucinich Exits

Kucinich Exits and Democrats Diminished
by John Nichols
The media managers of the 2008 presidential contest worked for months to get Dennis Kucinich off the stage and out of the running. And they have finally succeeded.
 
The Ohio Congressman says he is now "transitioning out of the presidential campaign" and into a tough Democratic primary race for reelection to his Cleveland-area U.S. House seat.
 
 
[Kucinich to Introduce Impeachment of Bush Before State of the Union January 28

In a brazen show of courage, Congressman Kucinich took to the House Floor yesterday and called Bush and Cheney the liars that they are.

"The President and Vice President lied and 4,000 of our soldiers died. The President and Vice President lied and a million innocent Iraqis died in a war that'll cost us two trillion dollars while people here in the states are losing their jobs, their health care, their homes, their dignity. Lies are weapons of mass destruction. Lies are also an impeachable offence. Monday, January 28th is the State of the Union. We already know the State of the Union, it's a lie."]

US War Resisters in Canada Face Deportation and Prison: You Can Help

US War Resisters in Canada Face Deportation and Prison: You Can Help Them
by Laura Kaminker
We all dream of peace. But what have we sacrificed to make peace a reality? Some American men and women have risked everything to help end the Iraq War. And right now they need our help.

Hundreds of United States servicepeople have refused to participate in the US occupation of Iraq. Some of these war resisters, now “absent without leave,” have gone to Canada, but Canada has not yet granted them asylum.
 
In fact, deportation proceedings have begun against some resisters. If forced to return to the U.S., they face court martial, military prison and damaging criminal records.

We can’t let this happen.

Sicko! Gets Oscar Nod

"Sicko" Gets the Oscar High-Five: A note from Michael Moore
by Michael Moore
Friends; I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know (if you didn't already) the good news that "Sicko" has been nominated for this year's Academy Award for Best Documentary.
 
It was a pleasant surprise when we got the news on Tuesday.

Of course, every reporter who's called me in the past few days wanted to know if I plan on giving an "anti-war" or "anti-Bush" speech, should "Sicko" win, as I did when we won the Oscar for "Bowling for Columbine" in 2003.

The 9/11 Blacklist Campaign

9/11 Blacklist: Using Our Dollars for Change
by Peter Zaza
In the six years since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, the mainstream media in America has largely been a mouthpiece of the Bush administration.
 
 
All of the major networks including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and others had until recently, been silently complicit in the cover-up of the events of that day, the un-Constitutional wars that would follow, and the steady erosion of our Constitutionally protected rights.

When the “9-11 Truth” community grew to the point that it could no longer be ignored, these same networks that had ignored the issue for so long began to attack individuals and groups of individuals who were seeking answers to the lingering questions which still remain about 9-11.

Why We (Canadians) Fight in Afghanistan

Annals of Liberation: 'Good War' Goons Crush Press Freedom        
by Chris Floyd     
For a media story that might possibly be slightly more important than the momentous blogswarm victory over Chris Matthews, concerned netizens could turn their attention to the atrocious case of Sayed Perwiz Kaambaksh, a 23-year-old Afghan student who has been sentenced to death for printing an allegedly blasphemous article downloaded from the internet, as CNN reports.

Kaambaksh was tried in a closed court, without legal representation, by officials of the government installed by George Bush's "good war" crusade to, you know, liberate the Afghan people from the religious repression of Taliban extremists.

But it seems that in this case – as in so many others – religious crankery is being used as a cover for political chicanery.

Harper: Appeasing Israel

Zionist Appeasement: A Blight on the Canadian Political Landscape
by Kim Petersen
Ever since the Conservative Party formed a minority government in the ethnically cleansed territory designated Canada, an abrupt rightward shift has occurred in Canadian government policy.
 
The Conservative Party has chosen to openly support the zionist regime in the ethnically cleansed historical Palestine -- what the ethnic cleansers have renamed Israel.

But to target only the Conservative Party of Canada would be unfair because the other three major political parties in Canada are also infiltrated by Zionist appeasers.[1]

Two Jewish Jokes (and a Hain in the Middle)

Two Jewish Jokes (and a Hain in the Middle)
by Gilad Atzmon
A story is told of a Londoner, a Jewish man who was riding on the London Underground reading an Arab newspaper.
 
UK MP, Peter Hain - fast and loose with political contributions? 
 
A friend of his, who happened to be riding in the same underground car, noticed this strange phenomenon. Very upset, he approached the newspaper reader.

"Moishe, have you lost your mind? Why are you reading an Arab newspaper?" Moishe replied, "I used to read the Jewish newspaper, but what did I find? Jews being persecuted, Israel being attacked, Jews disappearing through assimilation and intermarriage, Jews living in poverty. So I switched to the Arab newspaper. Now what do I find? Jews own all the banks, Jews control the media, Jews are all rich and powerful, Jews rule the world. The news is so much better!"

Truth must be said, Moishe, is telling the truth here. The Jewish press in Britain is panicking lately and they have good reason, too.

Political Prosecution Under the Microscope

A Political Prosecution Goes Under the Microscope
by Scott Horton
Has the Bush Justice Department used the criminal justice system to punish its political adversaries all across the country? As the countdown begins to the end of the Bush Administration, abuse of the criminal justice system is finally coming into focus.

Within the Justice Department itself, the Office of Professional Responsibility and the Inspector General are conducting a joint investigation into the case of the “Gonzales Eight,” namely the firing of eight U.S. attorneys on December 7, 2006.
 
Preliminary inquiries by Congress produced the resignation in disgrace of most of the senior leadership of the Justice Department, including Attorney General Gonzales. Now we hear that Alberto Gonzales has “lawyered up” — for good reason.
