Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica addresses the Serbian nation about Kosovo

Translation: “Dear citizens of Serbia, Today, on February 17, a phoney state of Kosovo has been declared in the part of Serbia’s territory that is under military control of NATO. This unprecedented lawlessness came as a result of destructive, cruel and immoral policy of force implemented by the US. This act informs the whole world that America puts force over the UN Charter and is ready to self-willingly, unscrupulously and

Analysts expect Hizbullah to deal major blow to “Israel”

Source: Daily Star via Islamic Resistance in Lebanon By Michael Bluhm BEIRUT: Wednesday’s assassination of Hizbullah senior commander Imad Moghnieh will spark a new round of violence in the region, as Hizbullah is certain to retaliate in spectacular fashion, thereby provoking further security fallout in Lebanon, a number of analysts told The Daily Star on Friday. The aftershocks of Moghnieh’s killing could even increase the chances for civil strife here,

A 9/11 Every Day For Ten and a Half Years

Very refreshing article from URL:——- Most of Us Will Eat Shit Until the Day We Die By Arthur Silber 12/02/08 “Once Upon A Time” – — -Let us begin with the proposition of greatest importance. From my essay, “The Missing Moral Center: Murdering the Innocent“: There is one final point to be made about all this — and that has to do with the supreme value of a

All institutions devoted to full state, national unity in defending Kosovo-Metohija

Belgrade, Feb 12, 2008 – Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica stated today that in light of the impending declaration of unilateral independence of Kosovo-Metohija, all state institutions have one and the same goal – to show full state and national unity in defending the province.

The US-NATO Preemptive Nuclear Doctrine: Trigger a Middle East Nuclear Holocaust to Defend “The Western Way of Life”

by Michel Chossudovsky for Global Reseach (Canada) What the Western allies face is a long, sustained and proactive defence of their societies and way of life. To that end, they must keep risks at a distance, while at the same time protecting their homelands. International terrorism today aims to disrupt and destroy our societies, our economies and our way of life. … These different sources of [Islamist] propaganda and/or violence

Ron Paul throws in the towel (straight in the face of those who believed in him)

Ron Paul has published a message explaining that he is giving up the race. Sure, he declares his determination to “fight on”, but without a national campaign staff; he wants to focus on his constituents in his home district whom he declares unwilling to “let down”, unlike the rest of his supporters, I suppose. Here is the most important part of Ron Paul’s statement: “Of course, I am committed to

Ahmadinejad to meet Mubarak in Cairo next month

Al Manar TV reports that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has accepted an invitation from Cairo to visit Egypt sometime over the next month. This mark the first time an Iranian president will visit Egypt since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. The invitation was extended to Ahmadinejad through the Iranian speaker of parliament, Gholam Ali Haddad-Adel, who held talks in Cairo over the weekend with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. The Iranian student

Clinton’s ticking time bomb in the Balkans

With all the talk about the Neocon’s fabulously evil and incompetent foreign policy one might forget that it did not all begin with Dubya and his administration. The first elective war which was fought in blatant and clear violation of international law, the UN charter and even basic decency was the US-lead NATO aggression on Yugoslavia. It all really began with the joint US-Croatian attack on the UN protection areas

How deeply has the Neocon Empire been hurt by the recent developments?

The Empire’s (provisional) scorecard: one win, two losses The past couple of days have seen several very important developments for the future of the Empire: the Russian elections, the Venezuelan referendum, and the publication of the NIE. Because an Administration can only deal with a finite number of simultaneous crises, these seemingly unrelated events are probably very much linked to each other in the minds of the Neocons and they

Lebanon US base to counter Qaeda, Hezbollah or Russia?

by Mohamad Shmaysani The issue of building a US airbase in northern Lebanon has resurfaced. Senior US political and military officials have been flocking into Lebanon since the Israeli war against Lebanon in 2006, the last of whom is Eric Edelman, the US Undersecretary of Defense for policy, heading a Pentagon delegation. The Lebanese daily Assafir raised speculations of a likelihood to build US military bases in Lebanon and alter

Israeli politicians slam US for lack of will to attack Iran

(PRESS TV) — Israeli War Minister Ehud Barak and his US counterpart Robert Gates have discussed Iran’s nuclear standoff with the West in the Pentagon. The talks, which took place on Tuesday, were mainly focused on the Iranian nuclear issue. Barak’s office confirmed that the minister had spoken with Gates about the necessity of a multilayered missile defense system for Israel. The two were joined by senior officials for the

Ron Paul – the man and his message

After I finished writing my piece about my biggest fear about Ron Paul I felt that I should post this short video introducing him and his ideas. I truly believe that Ron Paul represents a unique and most important phenomenon in American politics and the best, and probably the only, chance to prevent the election of an openly Fascist president in 2008. While Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel the other

America is Under Attack from Within!

By Timothy V. Gatto I want to preface this article with this; I am really not in the mood to write this. Usually something hits me and I run to the keyboard and offer up what’s on my mind, and it gives me a kind of relief that I got it off my chest and whatever I was angry about isn’t eating my guts alive. This is different. For days

Time to Boycott Voting

By Joel S. Hirschhorn After many years of political disappointment, more progressives, liberals and conservatives – and certainly moderates and independents – know in their hearts that voting for Democrats or Republicans is a waste. Just imagine if voter turnout was cut to 25 percent or less! Let the whole world see Americans boycotting a broken and corrupt political system and rejecting what has become a delusional democracy. To keep

The Police State Is Right Here, Right Now

By Carolyn Baker As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such a twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air-however slight-lest we become unwilling victims of the darkness. ~Justice William O. Douglas~ 09/20/07 “ICH” — — In April, 2007 I was pleasantly surprised to find Naomi

Beware the Wounded Beast: America Has Lost the Iraq War

By Dave Lindorff The Iraq War has been lost. The British are acknowledging this fact by pulling out their troops from Basra, Iraq’s second largest city, handing over the city to the control of Shia militias. For all intents and purposes, the “Coalition of the Willing” is now dead. America is now going it alone. Bush is not acknowledging defeat, but has indirectly admitted it by saying that some troops

The Tragic Ordeal of the Cuban Five

Victims of National Security Injustice By Saul Landau In 1953, a man I knew got busted for masturbating at a public urinal. A cop had hidden in the ceiling grate above him “to find perverts.” The lawyer, a friend of our family, charged him $5,000. “I gave $500 to the cop,” the lawyer explained, “bought the judge a present and paid two witnesses $250 each to testify that he was

Lobbying for a Foreign Country

It is difficult to identify all the pro-Israel PACs because they fly under the radar with innocuous sounding names such as Metro PAC, Badger PAC, Pacific PAC, etc. By Ron Forthofer, Ph.DSpecial to In March 2006, two respected academics, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt from the University of Chicago and Harvard University, respectively, wrote a paper that shook up the academic and foreign policy communities. These authors broke the
