Canada: Nearly Achieving Sub-Nation Status

Canada Report 2007 – Part I – Reaching for Subnation Status
by Jim Miles
Canadians have always prided themselves on the “goodness” if not the “greatness” of their country.  Sitting north of the United States, Canadians struggle with an ideal that rejects many American ideas, yet accommodates in one way or another most of those ideas – more so currently than in the past. 
 
From medical care to military purpose Canadians view themselves as essentially different from their southern neighbours, who remain for the most part steadfastly ignorant of us.  There is very much about Canada, however, that indicates that we are not quite as independent of thought and action as the average Canadian realizes.   This statement by itself would not bother many Canadians, but on specific issues there is opposition to current policies.

Forgotten Crimes: The Other Scandal Involving Destruction of Evidence

The Other Scandal Involving Destruction of Evidence
by Scott Horton
I just finished poring over yet another set of written answers from a former senior Justice Department official who—extremely unconvincingly—insists over and again that he “has no present recollection” of communications between the White House and figures in the Justice Department about a series of matters which have Karl Rove’s fingerprints all over them.

However, the incessant stonewalling by the Justice Department is, if anything, actually exceeded in its outrageousness by the White House, which has issued a steadily lengthening series of contradictory explanations.

Shadows: Proliferation, Corruption and the Way of the World

The Bomb in the Shadows: Proliferation, Corruption and the Way of the World
by Chris Floyd
This week, the Sunday Times lifted the lid on one of the most important stories of the last quarter-century: how American officials sold nuclear arms technology to illegal proliferators -- including ideological allies of al Qaeda -- in return for bribes and other inducements.
 
This widespread corruption has been protected from exposure by the highest levels of the U.S. government, which has gone to enormous lengths to protect the truth from coming out.
 
The entire planet has been put at grave risk by the greed -- and geopolitical gamesmanship -- that lies behind this criminal enterprise, which actually is even more extensive, and goes back further in time, than the newspaper's remarkable revelations.

Not Alright Reading

Tom's Review of Books
by Tom Engelhardt
Dear Tomdispatch Reader; for 30 years, I've been a book editor in -- or at the edge of -- mainstream publishing. I still co-run and co-edit a series I helped launch back in 2003, The American Empire Project (out of Henry Holt's Metropolitan Books).
 
I've often written back to readers who wanted me to check out their books (or favorite books of theirs) that the saddest response a long-time book editor is this: I have so desperately little time to read books these days.
 
And it's true... it really is...

Imagining a World Without GWOT

The $100 Barrel of Oil vs. the Global War on Terror:
The Bush Legacy (Take Two)
by Tom Engelhardt
Consider the debate among four Democratic presidential candidates on ABC News last Saturday night. In the previous week, the price of a barrel of oil briefly touched $100, unemployment hit 5%, the stock market had the worst three-day start since the Great Depression, and the word "recession" was in the headlines and in the air.
 
 
So when ABC debate moderator Charlie Gibson announced that the first fifteen-minute segment would be taken up with "what is generally agreed to be… the greatest threat to the United States today," what did you expect?
 
As it happened, he was referring to "nuclear terrorism," specifically "a nuclear attack on an American city" by al-Qaeda (as well as how the future president would "retaliate"). 
 
 
[Note for Tomdispatch Readers: Last week, I offered my initial take, a year early,
on the Bush legacy, "Journey to the Dark Side." Here's take two.]

Cutting Uranium Deals with Ontario's Savages

Algonquin Negotiators Caught "Suckling"
by Kahentinetha Horn 
Eight Mohawks from four communities were invited by Robert “Too Much Mercy” Lovelace, the negotiator for the Ardoc Lake Algonquins, to attend a public meeting in Kingston Ontario.
 
 
They were supposedly hammering out a deal between the Ardoc/Sharbot Lake Algonquins, Ontario government and Frontenac Ventures Corporation to “stop” a uranium mining project that may have never been meant to see the light of day. 
 
“See you there”, he said. The meeting was to start on Sunday, January 6, from 7:00 to 11:00 pm. at the Holiday Inn.

Barking for Obama: The Revolving Door Democracy Show

The Obama Phenom or Revolving Door ‘Democracy’  
by William Bowles
There are dark forces at work here, namely the pr and media sectors of the ruling elites who have realised that the only way to (hopefully) save their bacon is to have an economically and politically ‘safe’ Black prez who captures the imagination of those who have never voted (about 30% of the eligible population), mostly the young and along the way it’s hoped he’ll capture a significant percentage of Black vote and of course most of the Democratic voters.
 
He’s right of Hillary Clinton but with loads more appeal, so he even might grab a few Republicans and he’s an African (of Kenyan descent, now there's synchronicity in action). Damn, he comes over like an ad for Benetton or Guess, no wonder the powers that be are backing him.

War Baiting Iran in the Straits of Hormuz

Strait of Hormuz: Keeping the Neocon Iran Attack on the Front Burner
by Kurt Nimmo
The Huffington Post is quoting the Associated Press:

  • "In what is being called a serious provocation, Iranian Revolutionary Guard boats harassed and provoked three U.S. Navy ships in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, officials said Monday.
U.S. forces were on the verge of firing on the Iranian boats in the early Sunday incident, when the boats ended the incident and turned and moved away, said a Pentagon official."

Another news day, another lame attempt to get Iran to respond and thus provide the provocation required for the United States and Israel to kill Iranian toddlers and mothers.

Iraq: Brother's in Arms

Killer of U.S. Soldiers Becomes a Hero
by Ali al-Fadhily and Dahr Jamail
The recent killing of two U.S. soldiers by their Iraqi colleague has raised disturbing questions about U.S. military relations with the Iraqis they work with.
 
 
On Dec. 26, an Iraqi soldier opened fire on U.S. soldiers accompanying him during a joint military patrol in the northern Iraqi city Mosul. He killed the U.S. captain and another sergeant, and wounded three others, including an Iraqi interpreter.

Conflicting versions of the killing have arisen.

Chaos Capital: All-Out War on Planet Earth

It’s all-out war on the planet. Chaos (capitalism) rules okay!  
by William Bowles
I have to admit to a feeling of being totally overwhelmed by the state of our planet even though I know the chaos that threatens to drown us all is the direct result of an economic system —capitalism— being nothing more than the anarchic addiction of capital accumulation now run riot (the profits that are being made are obscene and the pain of the victims, numbering in the millions, indescribable).
 
That since the 1970s and the advent of so-called neoliberalism, it’s been a no holds barred, free-for-all on the people and the planet. And If you have the impression that those who claim to be in control are not only totally clueless but are unable to do a damn thing about it, it’s because you’re correct.
