Lots More Troops To Iraq... After the Election
By : Ray McGovern - Thursday September 30, 2004
2 comments
Lots More Troops To Iraq... After the Election by Ray McGovern 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. (I do wish his advisers would provide a different vocabulary so that those of us steeped in the mistakes regarding (...)

Delegates Split Over Blair’s Iraq Apology
By : ED JOHNSON - Thursday September 30, 2004
1 comment
By ED JOHNSON BRIGHTON, England — For Tony Blair, sorry seems to be the hardest word. A day after the prime minister expressed regret about bad intelligence on Iraq, delegates at the Labour Party’s annual convention were divided over whether they’d heard a genuine apology for the war. In a contrite, conversational speech that won him a standing ovation, Blair said he could apologize for faulty evidence on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction — but he refused to do so (...)

Top Bush officials clash over Iraq election
By : Vicki Allen - Sunday September 26, 2004
1 comment
By Vicki Allen WASHINGTON - Iraq’s elections should be nationwide, a top Bush administration official has said, clashing publicly with Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s suggestion that voting might not take place in the most violent areas. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage said the elections scheduled for January will not be perfect, but they should encompass the entire country. Rumsfeld also appeared to back away from his outspoken remarks on Thursday that while (...)

The bubble boy Bush lives in a world immune from the realities of Iraq.
By : Sidney Blumenthal - Saturday September 25, 2004
By Sidney Blumenthal The news is grim, but the president is "optimistic." The intelligence is sobering, but he tosses aside "pessimistic predictions." His opponent says he has "no credibility," but the president replies that it is his rival who is "twisting in the wind." The secretary general of the United Nations speaks of the "rule of law," but Bush talks before a mute General Assembly of "a new definition of security." Between the rhetoric and the reality lies the campaign. A reliable (...)

Quit Iraq, and quit fast. It’s that simple
By : Simon Jenkins - Friday September 24, 2004
35 comments
by Simon Jenkins "The Times" TONY BLAIR has declared that Britain is now fighting a “new war” in Iraq. He did so on the anniversary of the Battle of Arnhem, an inauspicious precursor. Arnhem was a notorious “bridge too far”, a politico-military decision that led to defeat and the needless loss of British lives. But at Arnhem Britain knew what it was about. When Mr Blair calls on all “sensible and decent people” to support him in this new Iraq conflict we (...)

Murderous barbaric butchers betray cause by Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey So, Eugene Armstrong has been beheaded. The tape has been sent to the Internet. A victory for senselessness, idiocy, butchery, cruelty, mindless violence, perpetrated by the legions of Baal. What is the difference between slitting the throat of an American contractor and blasting away the limbs of an Iraqi child with a cluster bomb? What is the difference between killing an American civilian and killing an Iraqi (...)

The Temple Mount Bombers
By : Uri Avnery - Tuesday September 21, 2004
di Uri Avnery The Security Service is haunted by a terrible fear: that another Israeli Prime Minister will be assassinated. The extreme right-wing, which does not hide its admiration for Yigal Amir and his deed, harbors some who dream of a similar action. After all, if Amir succeeded in murdering the Oslo process, why shouldn’t another Amir succeed in murdering the process of dismantling the settlements in the Gaza Strip? But the Security Service also entertains an even greater (...)

Far graver than Vietnam

Most senior US military officers now believe the war on Iraq has turned into a disaster on an unprecedented scale by Sidney Blumenthal ’Bring them on!" President Bush challenged the early Iraqi insurgency in July of last year. Since then, 812 American soldiers have been killed and 6,290 wounded, according to the Pentagon. Almost every day, in campaign speeches, Bush speaks with bravado about how he is "winning" in Iraq. "Our strategy is succeeding," he boasted to the National Guard (...)

ANOTHER LOOK AT 9-11 MORE PNAC PLOTTING?
By : Ted Lang - Wednesday September 15, 2004
By: Ted Lang Increasingly, evidence continues to mount against our own government. Parts of what were formerly viewed as disjointed, confusing and disconnected pieces of a puzzle are beginning to fall into place. The Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal was bad enough, but the Bush administration’s cover-up is much worse. The same can be said for the 9-11 Commission that never really addressed how it was possible for our skies to be so vulnerable on that day. We are to believe that nary (...)

100 Children Die Daily in Iraq
By : Iraq - Friday September 10, 2004
1 comment
In one month, 3000 children died in Iraq; on average, that is 100 per day. Though many are innocent victims of incessant clashes, most succumb to malnourishment and unsanitary living conditions. The shortage of drugs and modern equipment is worse than when Saddam Hussein was in power - when international embargoes isolated the country. Shells and shrapnel, grenades and bombs are other factors affecting the health of children. According to disclosures from the Health Care Ministry, (...)

Uri Avnery: How Are You, Non-Violence?

by Uri Avnery* At the mass meeting with Arun Gandhi, the grandson of the Mahatma, in Abu-Dis, I observed the faces of the participants. While Gandhi was preaching non-violence, I imagined a debate between two young Palestinians in the audience. Yussuf: “He is right. The armed intifada has failed. Hassan: “On the contrary. Without the actions of the martyrs, the world would have forgotten us long ago.” Yussuf: “For half a year there were no suicide attacks in (...)

The Ghosts of Abu Ghraib
By : ROBIN COOK - Saturday August 28, 2004
This Strips Away the Last Vestiges of Moral Authority By ROBIN COOK Those close to him mutter, under their breath of course, that Tony Blair’s only moment of doubt over Iraq came in the wake of the exposure of the Abu Ghraib scandal. This is plausible, as our Prime Minister possesses a Gladstonian moral imperative. He believes that any economy with the truth over the threat from Saddam’s vanishing weapons of mass disappearance would be forgiven in the short run by his (...)

Israel Must Rethink Prisoner Policy
By : Uri Avnery - Friday August 27, 2004
by Uri Avnery "For all I care, they can starve to death!" announced Tzahi Hanegbi, after Palestinian prisoners declared an open-ended hunger strike against prison conditions. Thus the Minister for Internal Security added another memorable phrase to the lexicon of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Hanegbi became famous (or infamous) for the first time when, as a student activist, he was caught on camera with his friends hunting Arab students with bicycle chains. At the time I published a (...)

Journalist From Italy Killed in Iraq by Captors

By JOHN F. BURNS BAGHDAD, Iraq - The Arab news channel Al Jazeera reported early Friday that it had received a videotape from a group calling itself the Islamic Army in Iraq showing the killing of an Italian journalist, Enzo Baldoni, who disappeared last week while traveling to Najaf. Italy’s Ansa news agency quoted Italian officials in Iraq as confirming the Al Jazeera report. A spokesman for Al Jazeera, Jihad Ballout, was quoted by The Associated Press as saying that the satellite (...)

On recent US-led attacks against Iraqi towns and particularly Najaf
By : Paola Manduca - Wednesday August 25, 2004
We as members of the International Coordinating Group of the World Tribunal on Iraq wish to record the following statement: An appalling silence prevails about the devastation being inflicted on the people of Iraq. Having staged a show of transferring power to Iraqi authorities, the US has intensified military operations to stifle anything that dares to challenge occupation. The World Tribunal on Iraq refuses to be part of this silence... Based on our work to investigate and bring out the (...)

Is the real aim of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth to divert attention from Iraq?
By : Eleanor Clift - Saturday August 21, 2004
Fighting a Phony War By Eleanor Clift The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth stopped by NEWSWEEK’s Washington bureau this week to explain their version of what happened in Vietnam 35 years ago and why John Kerry doesn’t deserve three Purple Hearts. None were on the Swift Boat Kerry commanded, but they had charts to illustrate their contention that Kerry’s boat did not come under fire and that two of his wounds were self-inflicted, one when he hurled a grenade at a rice bin (...)

It wasn’t last year’s bomb but American policy which destroyed the UN’s hopes in Iraq
By : Salim Lone - Friday August 20, 2004
by Salim Lone Even before that awful bomb ripped through our Baghdad headquarters on August 19 2003, taking the lives of 22 of my colleagues, the UN mission in Iraq had already become marginal to the epic crisis being played out there. Iraq had become the centre of both the US war on terror and the war between the extremities of two civilisations. The vicious terrorist attack a year ago today surprised no one working for Sergio Vieira de Mello, the UN secretary general’s special (...)

Detentions ’not right’ - Rimington
By : Tania Branigan - Thursday August 19, 2004
by Tania Branigan A former head of MI5 has condemned the detention of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, where British security service officials are said to have repeatedly interrogated suspects under harsh conditions. Dame Stella Rimington’s comments came just two weeks after Britons formerly held at the camp described how MI5 officers questioned them at length. Their lawyers accuse the UK of "complicity" in the detention and mistreatment of prisoners by the US at its Cuban base. "It (...)

The US elections as open season for Israel
By : Uri Avnery - Tuesday August 17, 2004
By Uri Avnery Once upon a time, an assistant to Levy Eshkol, our [Israeli] late prime minister, rushed up to him and cried: "Levy, a disaster! A drought has set in!" "Where?" the prime minister asked anxiously, "in Texas?" "No, here in Israel!" the man replied. "Then there’s nothing to worry about," Eshkol said dismissively. Right from the beginning, the State of Israel has been critically affected by events in the United States. "If America sneezes, Israel catches cold," is the (...)

by Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey Where did the Bush regime go wrong? Somewhere along the line, once, George W. Bush and his clique of elitist super-rich entrepreneurs who dictate White House policy, must have had political objectives, must have believed that they could do good for America and for the world. What has ensued is a systematic abuse of power, a systematic disregard for international law and a systematic outrage of human rights. Where did the Bush regime get it wrong? The recent (...)

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.

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

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 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 (...)

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.

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 (...)
