The final judgement

The final judgement: An editorial in the UK indedpendet:

"Now that the ISG has reported, it is clear beyond doubt that Iraq's deadly weapons capacity boiled down to a glint, if that, in Saddam Hussein's eye. In one of the more shameless examples of pre-emptive 'spinning', even from this Government so addicted to 'spin', the Foreign Secretary told us yesterday that, 'the report highlights the nature of the threat from Saddam in terms of his intentions and capabilities in even starker terms than we have seen before'. Try parsing that. Try translating it into plain English."

Is He a Dope?

Is He a Dope? An editorial in the los angeles times....

"It's bad if a president is incapable of the abstract thought necessary for these mental exercises. If he is capable and isn't even trying, that's worse. It becomes a question of character. When a president sends thousands of young Americans to kill and die halfway around the world, thinking about it as hard and as honestly as possible is the least he can do."

Iraqis may sue US over invasion

Aljazeera.Net - Iraqis may sue US over invasion Iraqi Ismlamic Party spokesman:

""All the information available before the war showed that [President] Saddam Hussein had put an end to his [weapons] programme," he said.

"These weapons were used as a pretext by the US and British governments to invade Iraq."

He added: "We have the right to demand compensation and the withdrawal of the occupation forces.""

Veto shows U.S. complicity in Zionist crimes

Veto shows U.S. complicity in Zionist crimes Thanks to Bush & Co. veto of the UN resolution....

"The U.S. has thrown down the gauntlet to the nations of the world by vetoing anti-Israeli resolutions and is paving the way for an uncontrollable explosion and a general global crisis that will be immediately detrimental to U.S. national security."

To get votes and appease the Israeli lobby, Bush & Co. have again shown the world how dishonest it is....

Oil adds sheen to Kazakh regime

Oil adds sheen to Kazakh regime

"In Washington, President George H.W. Bush warmly greeted Nazarbayev, and administration officials looked on as he and Chevron executives signed agreements calling for a partnership in Kazakh oil fields.

In 1993, Chevron acquired a 50% stake in the giant Tengiz field in western Kazakhstan. Within a few years, other American oil companies had negotiated stakes of their own. Nazarbayev rolled out the welcome mat for them, establishing a Foreign Investors' Council that included Mobil and Chevron.

James A. Baker III brokered the emerging U.S.-Kazakh relationship while serving as the elder Bush's secretary of State. In December 1991, during the final days of the Soviet Union, he and Nazarbayev discussed Kazakhstan's future while enjoying a sauna at a villa in the mountains above Almaty.

After leaving office, Baker became a partner at the Baker Botts law firm in Houston, which offered advice to energy companies seeking to invest in Kazakhstan and other nations of the Caspian region."

Elections Will Not End the Fighting in Iraq

Elections Will Not End the Fighting in Iraq "The upsurge in rebel attacks is being portrayed in London and Washington as an attempt to sabotage the Iraqi elections in January. There is no reason to think that the impending polls in Iraq have any connection with the increasing violence. The insurrection is spreading each month under its own momentum. It does so because the dominant fact in Iraqi politics is the overwhelming unpopularity of the US occupation."

The Dynamics of Al-Sadr’s Uprising

The Dynamics of Al-Sadr’s Uprising "In many ways, Al-Sadr’s uprising is a manifestation of the Iraqis’ quest for an end to the occupation and their desire to rid their country of a US-proxy government. But the conflict is also part and parcel of a larger domestic Shiite struggle for power and legitimacy amidst chaos. The two main trends vying for power among Iraq ’s Shiites are the “quietist” school lead by Grand Ayatollah Sayed Ali al-Sistani, and a “militant-activist” school lead by Moqtada Al-Sadr. Al-Sadr’s recent actions can be understood as a challenge to the quietist ayatollahs for their apparent collaboration with the occupation through their notable silence throughout the crisis."

Catastrophic Success - The worse Iraq gets, the more we must be winning

Iraq From Clinton to Bush

Iraq From Clinton to Bush An analysis showing that it may be more of the same under a democratic administration... But, jfk is all we have to turn it around and end the occupation.

"In retrospect, it is evident that Clinton and his Democratic cohorts did more than their fair share of laying the groundwork for Bush's war against and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. Not only did Clinton construct the political leverage Bush needed by signing the 1998 Iraq Liberation Act, he also provided a model for Bush's relentless bombing of Iraq as he also led several significant strikes on Afghanistan and the Sudan.

So when Bush began talking about regime change in Iraq, those who looked to the Democrats to halt the offensive, were surely seeking out the wrong allies."

US envoy accused of being the power pulling Karzai's strings

"It is very shameful what the Americans are doing," said Mohammed Qasim, a vice-presidential candidate on an opposition ticket. "They came here to end terrorism, not to interfere in our elections and impose their will on us."

SURPRISE! Democracy, my ass...

Afghan election set to be fiasco

Afghan election set to be fiasco In a report published on Monday, US-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) warned that the vote was unlikely to be representative of anything since the country is still run by private armies involved in extortion, kidnapping, rape and murder.

HRW chief John Sifton concluded: "The warlords are calling the shots. Politically active people are not taking part and few voters understand the secret ballot, so people are being told how to vote."

"Vote for Hamid Karzai or get your house burnt down." Sounds like Bush & Co.'s Afghan puppet will win, huh?
