ride through america: we're all gonna die

we're all gonna die
by janine bancroft
morning, july 29th, yuma arizona, somewhere near palm springs california - a sign out the window says san diego is 177 km

to my canadian brothers and sisters i say -- WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE !!!!

you know about the nafta, right, which brian mulroney signed into power with a minority government just prior to the collapse of his conservative party, after an election with nafta as its key issue and a very clear majority of canadians voted against it. well i voted against the nafta (can't recall which of the no to nafta parties i voted for) because of a clause i heard about that states -- canada will provide america with energy resources even before we meet our own needs.

‘Empire of Chaos’ or living in the age of impunity

The ‘Empire of Chaos’ or living in the age of impunity
by William Bowles  
Impunity: N. Nonliability, exemption, let-out, immunity, special treatment. Impunity: Vb. Exempt, set apart, absolve, grant immunity, are just some of the descriptions my Roget’s Thesaurus lists for the word impunity.
 
Another way of describing impunity is that ‘might is right’ but a ‘right’ reinforced and delivered by the corporate media’s complicity in the process of granting immunity (invisibility) to those who practice mass murder and genocide on a scale that almost defies description.

No Sweat: How McCain Will Win

Obama Doesn't Sweat. He should
by Greg Palast
In swing-state Colorado, the Republican Secretary of State conducted the biggest purge of voters in history, dumping a fifth of all registrations. Guess their color.

In swing-state Florida, the state is refusing to accept about 85,000 new registrations from voter drives – overwhelming Black voters.

In swing state New Mexico, HALF of the Democrats of Mora, a dirt poor and overwhelmingly Hispanic county, found their registrations disappeared this year, courtesy of a Republican voting contractor.

In swing states Ohio and Nevada, new federal law is knocking out tens of thousands of voters who lost their homes to foreclosure.

Iraq: Surge as Ethnic Cleansing

Forget the Surge - Violence Is Down in Iraq Because Ethnic Cleansing Was Brutally Effective
by Juan Cole
I want to weigh in as a social historian of Iraq on the controversy over whether the "surge" "worked." The New York Times reports:

  • Mr. McCain bristled in an interview with the CBS Evening News on (July 22) when asked about Mr. Obama's contention that while the added troops had helped reduce violence in Iraq, other factors had helped, including the Sunni Awakening movement, in which thousands of Sunnis were enlisted to patrol neighborhoods and fight the insurgency, and the Iraqi government's crackdown on Shiite militias.

Latin America: Return of the Gunboat

Fourth Fleet Steams South: Return of the Gunboat
by John Ross
The resurrection and imminent dispatch of the United States Fourth Fleet to patrol the coasts of Latin America invokes the bad old days of Monroe Doctrine impositions and gunboat diplomacy for many citizens of those southern latitudes.

This April, the U.S. Navy announced the reactivation of the fleet that historically operated in the south Atlantic during World War II, dueling with Nazi U-boats. Activating the Fourth Fleet "demonstrates U.S. commitment to our global partners," Admiral Gary Roughead explained, adding a threatening fillip: "The Fourth Fleet will send a strong signal to all Navies operating in the region."

"Bleeding Afghanistan:" Interview with Sonali Kolhatkar

"Bleeding Afghanistan:" Interview with Sonali Kolhatkar
by Mike Whitney
On a recent stopover in France, Barack Obama said;
 
"We must win in Afghanistan. There is no other option."
 
Recent polls, however, show that public support for the war in Afghanistan has fallen off sharply. In fact, many American's don't even know why we are still there.

Iran: The Respectable Nuclear Holocaust

Making Nuclear Extermination Respectable
by James Petras 
On July 18, 2008 The New York Times published an article by Israeli-Jewish historian, Professor Benny Morris, advocating an Israeli nuclear-genocidal attack on Iran with the likelihood of killing 70 million Iranans – 12 times the number of Jewish victims in the Nazi holocaust:

“Iran’s leaders would do well to rethink their gamble and suspend their nuclear program. Barring this, the best they could hope for is that Israel’s conventional air assault will destroy their nuclear facilities. To be sure, this would mean thousands of Iranian casualties and international humiliation. But the alternative is an Iran turned into a nuclear wasteland.”

Morris is a frequent lecturer and consultant to the Israeli political and military establishment and has unique access to Israeli strategic military planners. Morris’ advocacy and public support of the massive, brutal expulsion of all Palestinians is on public record. Yet his genocidal views have not precluded his receiving numerous academic awards. His writings and views are published in Israel’s leading newspapers and journals. Morris’ views are not the idle ranting of a marginal psychopath, as witnessed by the recent publication of his latest op-ed article in the New York Times.

Fallujah: Police Bombings Raise New Fears

Police Bombings Raise New Fears
by Ali al-Fadhily and Dahr Jamail
A tense security situation in this volatile city has worsened after some policemen found bombs planted on the roofs of their houses.

Astonishing attacks have been launched against police leaders during the past weeks in Fallujah, 69 km west of Baghdad, after reports of the U.S. and Iraqi government's plans to raid active and sleeping militant cells in the city.

"There were attacks that targeted senior officers, and we thank god they failed and our colleagues are safe," Major Abdul Aziz of the Fallujah Police told IPS. "Investigations are still ongoing to see who was behind the attacks, and it is too early to point out motives, although they appeared to be of al-Qaeda style."

Condi Ducks NZ Posse: Bounty on Rice's Head

Fugitive Rice makes narrow escape in Auckland
by Indy Media
United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made a narrow escape from justice, with the assistance of the New Zealand Police, in Auckland on Saturday 26 July. The police can now consider themselves accessories to war crimes.
 
Rice met with government leaders in Auckland but was chased by 150 protesters spurred on by a bounty of $10,000. They called for her arrest, under the Geneva Convention, for war crimes and for her role in authorising the use of torture.
