Depleted, it is NOT!
By : Bob Nichols - Monday May 30, 2005
5 comments
George Lakoff, guru of "reframing." Lakoff suggested relabeling the issue: "radioactive weaponry". The name "depleted uranium" was carefully selected to imply harmlessness. "Radioactive weaponry" raises a red flag. (Oklahoma City, Red State of Delusion) The term "Depleted Uranium" is misleading, on purpose. So-called "Depleted uranium" results from making hydrogen bombs. The CIA tries to deceive us all, all the time. They have succeeded for 55 years. George Lakoff blows the lid off (...)

Dedication for the year 2120. A Dedication in 2120 might say: Dedicated to the memory of the Iraqi people. Many people believe Iraq was the birthplace of civilization some 5,000 years ago. Iraq was destroyed and radioactively contaminated in an early 21st Century Oil War by a fascist world power, now extinguished. Dedication to the Iraqi People in 2005. Iraq is uninhabitable. The Wars in Central Asia all were nuclear wars fought with radiation dispersing American weapons. None of (...)

Diplomacy’s Over NATIONAL REVIEW MAG. (http://www.nationalreview.com/edito...) For a brief moment last week it looked as though Europe’s tireless efforts to bribe Iran into giving up key parts of its nuclear program had finally come to an end. After the latest round of negotiations concluded in deadlock, Iran threatened to resume suspended fuel-cycle activities, prompting the Europeans to suggest they were ready to get tough. “...We certainly will support referral to (...)

Soaring birth deformities and child cancer rates in Iraq
By : James Cogan - Tuesday May 10, 2005
17 comments
Iraqi doctors are making renewed efforts to bring to the world’s attention the growth in birth deformities and cancer rates among the country’s children. The medical crisis is being directly blamed on the widespread use of depleted uranium (DU) munitions by the US and British forces in southern Iraq during the 1991 Gulf War, and the even greater use of DU during the 2003 invasion. The rate of birth defects, after increasing ten-fold from 11 per 100,000 births in 1989 to 116 per (...)

Horror Of US Depleted Uranium In Iraq Threatens World — "A crime against humanity"

"I’m horrified. The people out there - the Iraqis, the media and the troops - risk the most appalling ill health. And the radiation from depleted uranium can travel literally anywhere. It’s going to destroy the lives of thousands of children, all over the world. We all know how far radiation can travel. Radiation from Chernobyl reached Wales and in Britain you sometimes get red dust from the Sahara on your car." The speaker is not some alarmist doomsayer. He is Dr. Chris Busby, (...)

Gaps in French Briat death report
By : Diet Simon - Tuesday January 4, 2005
by Diet Simon The French anti-nuclear movement Réseau Sortir du nucléaire charges that there are serious gaps in the state attorney’s report on how a young activist was killed in November by a nuclear waste train. Twenty-two-year-old Sébastien Briat died on 7 November near Avricourt in Lorraine when he tried to stop a train taking waste from a French plutonium plant for storage in Germany, where it had originated. He was one of a group of eight. Contrary to first reports, it is (...)

Sharper watch on nuclear trains
By : Diet Simon - Saturday December 25, 2004
by Diet Simon After a nuclear waste train ran over and killed the French activist Sébastien Briat nearly seven weeks ago, such trains are under sharper observation, writes the leftwing newspaper, Neues Deutschland. Many environment campaigners are asking themselves whether such an accident could also happen in Germany and what sort of inhibition threshold there might be for careless and inconsiderate driving of such trains. The paper, which was the official mouthpiece of the communist (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
