AFGHAN OPIUM:Iraq drug trade grows
By : CHRISTIAN MILLER - Monday October 11, 2004
1 comment
By T. CHRISTIAN MILLER Afghanistan’s opium crop this year is set to break all previous records, surging past even the highest levels cultivated during the Taliban regime, top American and international counternarcotics officials said. At the same time, U.N. and U.S. officials are increasingly worried by signs of a nascent drug trade developing in Iraq, where smugglers are taking advantage of the continuing chaos and unguarded borders. Instability in the wake of the U.S.-led (...)

By : MILLER and LIPTON - Monday October 11, 2004
By JUDITH MILLER and ERIC LIPTON Major American oil companies and a Texas oil investor were among those who received lucrative vouchers that enabled them to buy Iraqi oil under the United Nations oil-for-food program, according to a report prepared by the chief arms inspector for the Central Intelligence Agency. The 918-page report says that four American oil companies - Chevron, Mobil, Texaco and Bay Oil - and three individuals including Oscar S. Wyatt Jr. of Houston were given vouchers (...)

Republicans Love Red China
By : Erik Fortman - Monday October 11, 2004

by Erik Fortman Yes, I said it. The Republicans love Communist China. It was Nixon who turned public opinion in support of their terroristic, Communist regime. In modern times, the Bush Pentagon’s new “world map” indicates that China is our military ally! What the heck is going on here? I understand that Bush is better than Kerry. In this case, lesser-evilism still wreaks mucho evil. It was a Democrat who took us to fight China’s onslaught into Vietnam, and a (...)

The Iraq War Was Always Based On Lies
By : Jason Leopold - Saturday October 9, 2004

by Jason Leopold Here’s what we know so far about Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction: of the 600 or so sites identified by United States intelligence and Iraqi officials as places where the country biological weapons may be hidden, about 100 of these sites have been searched over the past six weeks and not a single spec of anthrax or other WMD has been uncovered. Two skeletal trailers that may have been used to develop anthrax or botulism, scrubbed from top to bottom (...)

Samarra, Iraq : "I saw dogs eating the body of a woman"
By : Samarra, Iraq - Thursday October 7, 2004
20 comments
Waving white flags, Iraqis have fled Samarra on river boats as US forces claimed victory over insurgents in an offensive aimed at taking control of rebel-held cities. Iraq’s US-backed interim government is hoping American and Iraqi forces will crush a bloody insurgency and take back all of the country before the scheduled January elections. But Sunday’s operation in Samarra, north of Baghdad, brought condemnation from residents about the cost in lives and suffering, and (...)

By Andrew Buncombe in Washington 06 October 2004 The Pentagon said yesterday it was investigating cockpit video footage that shows American pilots attacking and killing a group of apparently unarmed Iraqi civilians. The 30-second clip shows the pilot targeting the group of people in a street in the city of Fallujah and asking his mission controllers whether he should "take them out". He is told to do so and, shortly afterwards, the footage shows a huge explosion where the people were. A (...)

Mother of soldier killed in Iraq collapses, dies
By : TUCSON, Arizona - Tuesday October 5, 2004
’Her grief was so intense,’ hospital worker says A 45-year-old woman collapsed and died days after learning her son had been killed in Iraq, and just hours after seeing his body. Results of an autopsy were not immediately released, but friends of Karen Unruh-Wahrer said she couldn’t stop crying over losing her 25-year-old son, Army Spc. Robert Oliver Unruh, who was killed by enemy fire near Baghdad on September 25. "Her grief was so intense — it seemed it could (...)

Sept. is 2nd-deadliest 2004 month in Iraq
By : Robert Burns - Tuesday October 5, 2004
By Robert Burns WASHINGTON — September was the second-deadliest month of the year for U.S. forces in Iraq and brought to nearly 500 the number who have died since the insurgency escalated in late March. The Pentagon announced Sunday evening that two soldiers died late last week of injuries suffered earlier in the month, and another was killed Sept. 30 by a roadside bomb. That brought the month’s death toll to 80, up from 65 in August and equal to the 80 who died in May. The (...)

U.S. Faces Complex Insurgency in Iraq

by JIM KRANE BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military is fighting the most complex guerrilla war in its history, with 140,000 American soldiers trained for conventional warfare flailing against a thicket of insurgent groups with competing aims and no supreme leader. The three dozen or so guerrilla bands agree on little beyond forcing the Americans out of Iraq. In other U.S. wars, the enemy was clear. In Vietnam, a visible leader - Ho Chi Minh - led a single army fighting to unify the country (...)

Bremer Criticizes Troop Levels: Ex-Overseer of Iraq Says U.S. Effort Was Hampered Early On
By : Wright and Ricks - Tuesday October 5, 2004
By Robin Wright and Thomas E. Ricks The former U.S. official who governed Iraq after the invasion said yesterday that the United States made two major mistakes: not deploying enough troops in Iraq and then not containing the violence and looting immediately after the ouster of Saddam Hussein. Ambassador L. Paul Bremer, administrator for the U.S.-led occupation government until the handover of political power on June 28, said he still supports the decision to intervene in Iraq but said a (...)

Arlington West Shows Tragedy of Iraq War
By : Judy Ettenhofer - Monday October 4, 2004
by Judy Ettenhofer SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Every Sunday morning at 8, a squad of volunteers fans out across a section of beach next to the famous Santa Monica Pier. In the shadow of the Ferris wheel and the trinket stands, they carefully push more than 1,000 white crosses into the sand, methodically placing them in straight rows, using a string grid system as their guide. After the crosses are planted, they set out a flag-draped coffin with an empty pair of combat boots in front (...)

Tweedledumb and Tweedlephony Iraqi Security Forces: the Grand Illusion
By : WILLIAM S. LIND - Monday October 4, 2004
By WILLIAM S. LIND When asked for their solution to the mess in Iraq, both of America’s presidential candidates—Tweedledumb and Tweedlephony—advance the same line: "train more Iraqi security forces." Once enough Iraqis have been trained, they suggest, American troops can be withdrawn and our puppet Iraqi government can stand on its own six legs. Unfortunately, the problem is not training, but loyalty. All the training in the world is worthless if the people being trained (...)

Freed Italian Hostage Says Iraq Rebels ’Justified’

ROME (Reuters) - An Italian aid worker held hostage last month in Iraq said guerrillas there were right to fight U.S.-led forces and their Iraqi "puppet government." In comments that were bound to annoy Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s government, Simona Torretta also called on Rome to withdraw the troops it sent to Iraq to support its U.S. ally. "I said it before the kidnapping and I repeat it today," she told Corriere della Sera newspaper in an interview published Friday. "You (...)

By BARRY SCHWEID WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Colin Powell ventured into the thick of the presidential campaign Friday by challenging John Kerry’s attacks on President Bush’s leadership of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. At a news conference in Atlanta, Powell disagreed with the Kerry’s contention in Thursday night’s presidential debate that Bush missed an opportunity to capture terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

More Troops to Iraq ...After the Election

By RAY McGOVERN Former CIA Analyst It’s not an "if." It’s a "when." Pentagon officials have indicated that they plan to send as many as 15,000 additional troops during the first four months of 2005, and the President George W. Bush continues to insist "we will stay the course" until Iraq is stabilized.

Bush Ignored Warnings On Iraq, NY Times Says
By : WASHINGTON - Friday October 1, 2004
1 comment
U.S. President George W. Bush was warned in two intelligence reports before he invaded Iraq that his war could produce a chaotic guerrilla conflict involving terrorists. Yet, critics say, Mr. Bush didn’t use the information to alter his policy or plan for escalating bloodshed that’s threatening chances for democratic elections in Iraq in January. A senior U.S. intelligence official was also quoted this week as saying Mr. Bush disregarded high-level warnings that a war (...)

They’re the seriously wounded U.S. soldiers who arrive daily at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, a growing human toll that belies American election talk of improving times in Iraq. They’re the maimed and the scarred that hospital staff believe are largely invisible (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

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. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

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 (...)
