Groups Urge Bush Not to Offer Military Assistance to Indonesia
By : John M. Miller - Saturday June 4, 2005
by John M. Miller More Than 50 Groups Urge Bush Not to Offer Military Assistance to Indonesian President A wide range of U.S. organizations today urged President Bush not to offer military assistance to Indonesia when he meets President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono tomorrow. The groups further called on Bush to raise concerns about ongoing human rights violations and the failure to bring to justice members of Indonesia’s security forces responsible for human rights violations in (...)

Agent Orange lawsuit: an unjust, immoral verdict
By : Anh Hieu - Monday March 14, 2005
5 comments
by Anh Hieu US Judge Jack B. Weinstein’s dismissal on Thursday of the compensation lawsuit by Vietnamese Agent Orange victims was unjust, immoral and an irresponsible denial of the US’s war crimes in Viet Nam. And, it signals a new uphill battle for justice for Viet Nam despite the solid body of evidence against the toxin’s devastating effects on the land and generation-after-generation of Vietnamese people. Judge Weinstein claimed the documents presented in the New (...)

The Other, Man Made Tsunami
By : John Pilger - Tuesday January 18, 2005
THE OTHER, MAN-MADE TSUNAMI The west’s crusaders, the United States and Britain, are giving less to help the tsunami victims than the cost of a Stealth bomber or a week’s bloody occupation of Iraq. The bill for George Bush’s coming inauguration party would rebuild much of the coastline of Sri Lanka. Bush and Blair increased their first driblets of "aid" only when it became clear that people all over the world were spontaneously giving millions and a public relations (...)

Strings attached to Washington’s disaster relief Bush’s insult to tsunami victims By Alan Maass | January 14, 2005 | WHAT THEY give with one hand, they take away with the other. U.S. government aid to the desperate victims of the Indian Ocean tsunamis is finally arriving. But it has strings attached. As badly as the money is needed to keep people alive and rebuild, Washington’s conditions for disaster relief will make people’s lives worse in these (...)

Time To Cancel Tsunami Countries’ Debt
By : Mark Engler - Thursday January 13, 2005
by Mark Engler Despite an increase in promised aid to tsunami-affected countries last week, the United States’ aid offering still isn’t topping the list. Australia, for one, has donated much more. But the United States could make up for its somewhat meager offering by forgiving debt payments for tsunami countries. A temporary moratorium on payments won’t be enough. It’s time to go farther-much farther-and end debt obligations for tsunami countries in Southeast Asia. (...)

The NeoCon Agenda and Tsunami Relief
By : M. Kato - Monday January 10, 2005
1 comment
Although the U.S. relief aid to tsunami-stricken Indonesia is undoubtedly saving untold lives, there is a dark side to it that will have a much longer-lasting effect on that nation than the devastation wrought by the killer waves. After a slow, seemingly reluctant start, with a paltry pledge of $15 million, George W. Bush did a complete turnaround and upped the number to $350 million. He also sent the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln and a growing flotilla of other naval (...)

Vultures of the insurance industry By Leigh Johnson | Janury 7, 2005 SURVEYING THE immense loss of life and structural damage in coastal Southeast Asia from the tsunamis, the global insurance industry had a perverse response: Relief. While survivors searched for lost relatives and clean water, insurers were celebrating that the tragedy wouldn’t have a “material impact” on their 2004 profits. At least 5 million people have been made homeless, but because few have (...)

by Manuel Valenzuela From the Oceans, Indiscriminate Devastation As if to burst the bubble of human grandeur, infallibility and perceived omnipotence, Earth has once again thundered powerful vibrations onto her once pristine surface, in a sudden instant of horrific oceanic energy killing hundreds of thousands of innocent human beings and laying waste to vast coastlines throughout Asiatic lands bordering the Indian Ocean. In one brief moment the fantasies of Hollywood fictions fused with (...)

NYT calls US aid for tsunami "stingy"
By : NEW YORK - Saturday January 1, 2005
4 comments
NEW YORK: The New York Times said Thursday that the United States has been stingy in its response to the Asian tsunami disaster and in giving aid in general. The newspaper highlighted in an editorial that the 15 million dollars initially offered by Washington was less than the figure the ruling Republican Party would spend on President George W Bush’s inauguration in January. Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell have given indignant reactions to a comment by UN chief disaster (...)

Tsunami Disaster Highlights Corporate Media Hypocrisy

by Peter Phillips The terrible earthquake/tsunami disaster, along coastlines of the Indian Ocean, left tens of thousands dead and many times more people homeless and weakened. Front pages news stories swept the US corporate media -12,000 dead, 40,000, 60,000 and 100,000 made progressive day by day headlines. Twenty-four hour TV news provided minute by minute updates with added photos and live aerial shots of the effected regions. As the days after unfolded, personal stories of survival (...)

Coincidence! Major quake exactly 1 year ago
By : World Net Daily - Thursday December 30, 2004
7 comments
Is it just a striking coincidence? The 9.0 killer earthquake in Asia that unleashed tsunamis killing tens of thousands followed exactly one year to the hour after the Bam, Iran, earthquake that killed 26,000. On Dec. 26, 2003, a 6.6 quake hit the ancient city of Bam in Iran. While the quake was much smaller than the one that struck near the island of Sumatra Sunday, its epicenter was directly under the city. On Dec. 26, 2004, the 9.0 quake struck in South Asia. While the death toll will (...)

Incredible Coincidence: A massive earthquake in Asia unleashed tsunamis killing thousands, exactly one year to the hour after the Bam, Iran earthquake killed 26,000. What are the odds of two of the most destructive earthquakes in decades occuring exactly one year apart- almost to the minute! December 26, 2003 - Bam, Iran, only 6.6 on the richter scale, but quake is centered directly under the city- 26,000 dead. December 26, 2004 - Centered off the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the massive (...)

Freighter failed to communicate
By : ERIC NALDER - Thursday December 16, 2004
by ERIC NALDER For hours last week, the crew of the Coast Guard cutter Alex Haley repeatedly radioed the captain of the cargo ship Selendang Ayu, asking him what was wrong with his engines. They never got a clear answer, said Coast Guard Capt. Jack Davin, who is in charge of marine safety in Alaska. "It just seemed unusual we couldn’t get an answer," said Davin, who was among the officers at the Juneau command center last week who tried unsuccessfully to find out what was wrong (...)

By WAYNE MADSEN My sister just found my 80 year old mother late this morning sitting in a state of shock in a Red Cross church evacuation shelter in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Wiith her were some of her neighbors, along with a number of the regular street derelict residents of the facility. She was forcibly evacuated yesterday afternoon with only minutes warning and only enough time to grab her medications, cell phone, and phone charger. Because the state of Florida waited so long to (...)

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" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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 (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

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 (...)
