Thanks To Some REAL National Heroes
By : Ward Reilly - Saturday August 14, 2004
by Ward Reilly While our president rushed us into an unnecessary war, many people around our nation worked to expose the truth about what was to come in Iraq—citizens of great character,and a deep love of our nation. It is a long, long list of citizens, some that have risked their careers, and even their lives, in order to tell the truth about the Bush Administration’s catastrophic rush into war in the Middle East. Real Heroes. Thank you, Scott Ritter—the weapons (...)

Iraqi officials resign over US ’aggression’
By : Iraq - Friday August 13, 2004
Several Iraqi officials working within the interim government have resigned in protest of the US-led assault on Najaf and Kut. Sixteen of Najaf’s 30-member provincial council resigned in protest at the US-led assault on the Najaf as fighting between the Mahdi Army loyal to Muqtada al-Sadr and US occupation forces entered its eighth day. "We have decided to resign due to what has befallen Najaf and all of Iraq from the hasty US invasion and bombardment of Najaf," the council said in (...)

Thai troops begin withdrawal from Iraq
By : Baghdad - Wednesday August 11, 2004
Thailand has started to withdraw its military unit from Iraq just short of its one-year commitment, a spokesman said on Tuesday. The last of the 443 Thai soldiers, originally scheduled to return to Thailand by Sept. 20, will be out of Iraq by the end of August, Gen. Pisanu Urailert said. But military spokesman Maj. Gen. Palangoon Klaharn said the move did not amount to an early pull-out. "This is not regarded as moving out early, but a step-by-step process," he said, adding that the Thai (...)

My God! My Country Is Using Poison Gas In Iraq: We’ve Weaponized Uranium Gas
By : Bob Nichols - Monday August 9, 2004
by Bob Nichols Radioactive, poison gas made from uranium was recommended to the American Military in 1943 during World War II by atom bomb builders working on the Manhattan Project run by Gen Leslie Groves. Sixty-one years later deadly, radioactive, poisonous, weaponized uranium oxide gas plays a vital role in implementing the "Total Worldwide Domination Plan" as practiced by the NeoCons and President Bush. It is entitled "Rebuilding America’s Defenses" and was written in September (...)

Humiliation and Destabilisation or concerted plans
By : Robert Thompson - Saturday August 7, 2004

by Robert Thompson We are all reeling from the shock of seeing on our television screens the horrific and inhuman ritual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners who have had the ill fortune to find themselves in an establishment run by the armed forces of the U.S.A. Immediately following on from this we have seen re-runs of the sight of a swaggering Mr George W. Bush on 1st May 2003, after he had landed on an aircraft-carrier under a banner reading "Mission Accomplished", somewhat prematurely (...)

Saddam’s cameraman is still haunted by images of war
By : Robert Fisk - Friday August 6, 2004
2 comments
by Robert Fisk "I vomited," Mouffak Fathi Daoud says, and you have to understand why. Three young soldiers were brought to the trees on the hills outside Sulimaniyah. They had been retreating from the great battle against the Iranians on Jebel Maout. Saddam had ordered that all deserters should be shot. Daoud was one of the Iraqi army’s top newsreel cameramen. He didn’t have to watch. But he was a witness. "They were between 20 and 26 years old. All of them said the same (...)

Torture, for fun
By : Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey - Thursday August 5, 2004
by Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey Bush regime sinks lower by the day That US soldiers serving the Bush regime considered that the systematic torture of prisoners of war was fun, no big deal, to vent their frustration, not serious and just joking around, does not surprise anyone any longer. The face of the great American heroine, Private Lynndie England, cigarette hanging from the corner of her mouth, giving the thumbs-up sign while standing over or beside a pile of abused, terrified (...)

Iraqi Women and Torture, Part III Violence and Virtual Violence
By : Lila Rajiva - Thursday August 5, 2004
Despite a well-documented picture of under-reported sexualized violence, the major media has not shown any interest in pursuing cases of rape or abuse of Iraqi women by the US military. Instead, two stories about hoaxes or more accurately apparent hoaxes made the rounds earlier this year. They’re worth looking at to better understand what’s behind the seemingly artless way in which hoaxes and allegations of hoaxes creep into the factual history of abuse in Iraq. On May 4, (...)

Key Iraqi oil pipeline blown up
By : Aljazeera - Wednesday August 4, 2004
Kirkuk A major attack on the main pipeline connecting the oilfields of Kirkuk with the Turkish port of Jihan has halted limited exports from northern Iraq, a Northern Oil Company official said. "An improvised explosive device was placed close to a network of pipelines at the level of al-Fatiha, west of Kirkuk, causing a big explosion and huge fires that damaged the main pipeline running to Jihan and stopped exports," said Nasir Qasim, a logistics and security official with the state-owned (...)

’Can’t Blair see that this country is about to explode? Can’t Bush?’

By Robert Fisk The war is a fraud. I’m not talking about the weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist. Nor the links between Saddam Hussein and al-Qa’ida which didn’t exist. Nor all the other lies upon which we went to war. I’m talking about the new lies. For just as, before the war, our governments warned us of threats that did not exist, now they hide from us the threats that do exist. Much of Iraq has fallen outside the control of America’s (...)

Protection, not oppression: How the new mobile police patrols have discovered job satisfaction
By : Robert Fisk - Sunday August 1, 2004
By Robert Fisk in Baghdad - 30 July 2004 Their Kalashnikov automatic rifles regularly jam after firing two bullets, their flak jackets don’t protect them, their promised £45 pay increase never arrived, their boss wants to take the air-conditioners from their vehicles and the hospitals can’t cope with their wounded. Apart from that, the men of the new Iraqi police mobile patrols in Baghdad - the front-line victims of the Iraq war - are fighting fit. More than that. (...)

Unreported war: US document reveals scale of conflict
By : Robert Fisk - Saturday July 31, 2004
By Robert Fisk Iraq, we are told by Mr Blair, is safer. It is not. US military reports clearly show much of the violence in Iraq is not revealed to journalists, and thus goes largely unreported. This account of the insurgency across Iraq over three days last week provides astonishing proof that Iraq under its new, American-appointed Prime Minister, has grown more dangerous and violent. But even this is only a partial record of events. US casualties and dozens of Iraqi civilian deaths each (...)

Iraqi Women and Torture, Rapes and Rumors of Rape

by Lila Rajiva Part One & II By now, everyone has heard of the ghost detainees of Abu Ghraib — the prisoners who were never processed into the system and were kept out of sight of the Red Cross so that they could be whisked from prison to prison unaccounted for. But what about the other ghosts detainees — the women? Where are the women of Abu Ghraib and why have they been kept out of sight? When the Abu Ghraib story first broke at the end of April, no one appears to (...)

Baghdad is a city that reeks with the stench of the dead
By : Robert Fisk - Thursday July 29, 2004
By Robert Fisk in Baghdad The smell of the dead pours into the street through the air-conditioning ducts. Hot, sweet, overwhelming. Inside the Baghdad morgue, there are so many corpses that the fridges are overflowing. The dead are on the floor. Dozens of them. Outside, in the 46C (114F) heat, Qadum Ganawi tells me how his brother Hassan was murdered. "He was bringing supper home for our family in Palestine Street but he never reached our home. Then we got a phone call saying we could (...)

Iraq: What Went Wrong?
By : Stephen Soldz - Tuesday July 27, 2004
by Stephen Soldz [Talk delivered July 22, 2004 to Roslindale Neighbors for Peace and Justice] After invading Iraq, the leader of the conquering army proclaimed: "Our armies do not come in your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators ... I am commanded to invite you to participate in the management of your own civil affairs." Was this George Bush, Tony Blair, Paul Bremer, or Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez? No, it was conquering British General Stanley Maude, in 1917.1,2 (...)

Terror by video: How Iraq’s kidnappers drew their inspiration from horrors of Chechnya
By : Robert Fisk - Tuesday July 27, 2004
by Robert Fisk The pictures are grainy, the voices sometimes unclear. But when Kim Sun-il shrieks "Don’t kill me" over and over again, his fear is palpable. As the heads of Iraq’s kidnap victims are sawn off, Koranic recitations - usually by a well-known Saudi imam are played on the soundtrack. At the beheading of an American, the murderer ritually wipes his bloody knife twice on the shirt of his victim, just as Saudi officials clean their blades after public executions in (...)

Christians fear persecution in the new Iraq
By : Jamie Tarabay - Tuesday July 27, 2004
by Jamie Tarabay On a Sunday afternoon, attendance at mass at St. Peter and Paul’s Cathedral in Baghdad was decidedly thin. A handful of Syrian Orthodox loitered on the steps of the church afterward, women removing their dainty white lace veils as they chatted with friends. For many, church on Sunday is the only time they can really socialize because of safety fears. Most Christians blame concern over a tumultuous security situation for keeping them away from church, but it’s (...)

Family Values
By : Robert Thompson - Sunday July 25, 2004
by Robert Thompson When the "State of Israel" was declared, those Palestinians who found themselves on the "Israeli" side of the famous Green Line were given a strange kind of second class Israeli citizenship, whereas those who were then in the West Bank were granted Jordanian citizenship and those in the Gaza Strip were taken in charge by Egypt. This had the odd result of splitting families, depending purely on where they were at the time. A well-known example is that of the present (...)

Uri Avnery: the Skin of the Bear

by Uri Avnery The strategy of Sharon and his generals is simple and brutal: to destroy the Palestinian Authority, turn life in the occupied territories into hell, disintegrate Palestinian society and drive the survivors from the country, not in one dramatic sweep (as in 1948) but in a slow, continuous, creeping process." I am writing this with an aching heart. I have postponed writing it as long as I could. In Jewish tradition, there is a searing phrase: "The Temple was not destroyed (...)

Sharon’s double triumph
By : Robert Thompson - Saturday July 24, 2004
by Robert Thompson Mr Sharon has now got just what he wanted. His double triumph is horrendous. He is reported to have expressed sadness - what are commonly called "crocodile tears" no doubt!!! First of all, he got apparently unconditional support from Mr George W. Bush for his plan to annex still more Palestinian land, while giving up the least important of the illegally occupied lands in the Gaza Strip. He also offered to give up a few outposts in the West Bank, while annexing (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January

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

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 (...)

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 (...)
