EU Soldiers Accused of Torturing Civilians in Congo
By : deutsche-welle.de - Sunday March 30, 2008
29.03.2008 The Swedish military has accused French soldiers of torturing civilians during the EU-led Operation Artemis in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2003, one of the bloc’s first joint missions. Five years ago, the European Union sent some 1,500 soldiers to DR Congo as part of a UN mission to take action against the bandits marauding the north-eastern part of the country. The troops were there to protect the civilians. Now the Swedish military is saying that French (...)

Early CIA Involvement in Darfur Has Gone Unreported
By : globalpolitician.com - Monday October 8, 2007
1 comment
There has been a glaring omission in the U.S. media presentation of the Darfur tragedy. The compassion demonstrated, mostly in words, until recently, has not been accompanied by a recognition of U.S. complicity, or at least involvement, in the war which has led to the enormous suffering and loss of life that has been taking place in Darfur for many years. In 1978 oil was discovered in Southern Sudan. Rebellious war began five years later and was led by John Garang, who had taken military (...)

Nigeria: a destroyed population

Nigeria, which is the most populated state of Africa with its 132 million inhabitants, has been a victim of violent territorial destruction during the last fifty years.

The state of Nigeria is the worlds eighth biggest producer of oil supplying 2.5 million barrels per day. The Niger Delta area, rich of black (...)

THE United States, heavily engaged in Afghanistan and Iraq in its global war on terror, is now fighting on a third front in Somalia (1). Washington assembled an anti-terrorist coalition in the Gulf of Aden in 2001 and it is clear from recent air raids and the deployment of US battleships that it regards the Horn of Africa as part of the theatre of operations in its battle against al-Qaida. It is up against the Union of Islamic Courts, funded by Mogadishu traders who had had enough of (...)

Creating New Hotbed of Anti-Americanism in Somalia
By : Nicola Nasser - Saturday January 6, 2007
By Nicola Nasser U.S. foreign policy blundering has created a new violent hotbed of anti-Americanism in the turbulent Horn of Africa by orchestrating the Ethiopian invasion of another Muslim capital of the Arab League, in a clear American message that no Arab or Muslim metropolitan has impunity unless it falls into step with the U.S. vital regional interests.

To Bush, McCain and Olmert: The Congo Cries Out and all of you remain silent By Mary MacElveen November 14, 2006 The lesson for the GOP to take from last week’s election results in which they lost majority rule in both houses is that the American people saw through the deceit in using our military to fight an immoral war in Iraq. If we are to gain respect world-wide, it would be to stand up to brutal acts that continue to this day. No, I am not speaking of Iran. In fact I think (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
