By : Andrew Gavin Marshall - Friday September 10, 2010
Empire, Energy and Al-Qaeda: The Anglo-American Terror Network The Imperial Anatomy of al-Qaeda, Part II by Andrew Gavin Marshall Global Research, September 8, 2010 The End of the Cold War and Strategy for the New World Order With the end of the Cold War a new strategy had to be determined to manage the global system. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, declarations of a “New World Order” sprang forward, focusing on the United States as the single world superpower. This (...)

THE MISNOMER OF PEACE TALKS
By : JOHN CHUCKMAN - Tuesday September 7, 2010

THE MISNOMER OF PEACE TALKS John Chuckman I don’t know how anyone given the task could draw a map of Israel: it is likely the only country in the world with no defined borders, and it actually has worked very hard over many decades to achieve this peculiar state. It once had borders, but the 1967 war took care of those. It has no intention of ever returning to them because it could have done so at any time in the last forty-three years (an act which would have been the clearest (...)

Island of Shame
By : Murray Polner - Tuesday September 7, 2010
Island of Shame by Murray Polner Review of David Vine’s Island of Shame: The Secret History of the U.S. Military Base on Diego Garcia (Princeton University Press, 2009) Why should anyone care about 5,000 part-African, part-southern Indian Chagossians, who once inhabited Diego Garcia, a remote island in the Indian Ocean mid-way between Africa and Indonesia, who were exiled so the U.S. could build yet another military base? Since the onset of WWII and its aftermath, tens of millions (...)

Non-combat US troops in Iraq engage in combat

Non-combat US troops in Iraq engage in combat by Boris Volkhonsky Global Research, September 6, 2010 Voice of Russia On September 5, US troops were called in by Iraqi authorities to help combat insurgents who attacked an army base in Baghdad. There were no casualties among the American military and the whole incident would hardly be worth mentioning be it not for the fact that American participation in combat took place only five days after the widely advertised pullout of all US combat (...)

Making history: support for Israeli artists who say NO to normalizing settlements
By : jewishvoiceforpeace - Tuesday September 7, 2010
When some 60 leading Israeli actors and playwrights signed a letter stating they would refuse to play in the new theatre in Ariel, one of Israel’s largest settlements, the attacks from Prime Minister Netanyahu, Israel’s Minister of Culture and Sport and many others were swift and intense. Over 150 leading Israeli academics and writers-including Amos Oz and David Grossman- came to their defense. It was the first time such mainstream figures had drawn a line around normalizing (...)

Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack tells William Parry why he is boycotting Israel
By : William Parry - Monday September 6, 2010
1 comment
The movement for a cultural boycott of Israel in response to its treatment of the Palestinians, modelled on the boycott of apartheid South Africa, could eclipse decades of disingenuous political charades in engaging western intellectuals, academics and artists. Internationally renowned figures such as Naomi Klein and Ken Loach have supported the call, and now one of Britain’s most successful bands, Massive Attack, is publicly backing the boycott. “I’ve always felt that (...)

VIDEO: Pentagon’s Half-Billion-Dollar PR Budget to Sell Afghan War
Sunday September 5, 2010
VIDEO: Pentagon’s Half-Billion-Dollar PR Budget to Sell Afghan War by grtv $547 million. That’s the Pentagon’s P.R. budget. They’re using it to spread mistruths and misplaced hope in ‘progress’ with one goal in mind: to extend the brutal, costly Afghanistan War. General Petraeus’ media blitz is only the tip of the iceberg in the Pentagon’s effort to sell war to the American people. The Defense Department has a budget of more than $500 (...)

The Imperial Anatomy of Al-Qaeda. The CIA’s Drug-Running Terrorists and the “Arc of Crisis” Part I by Andrew Gavin Marshall Global Research, September 5, 2010 Introduction As the 9th anniversary of 9/11 nears, and the war on terror continues to be waged and grows in ferocity and geography, it seems all the more imperative to return to the events of that fateful September morning and re-examine the reasons for war and the nature of the stated culprit, Al-Qaeda.

Australia’s hung Parliament forshadows Afghan War Debate - yet "The Age" already censors the Awful Truth
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday September 5, 2010
With the hung Parliament result in the recent Australian Federal Election a major crack has appeared in the US Alliance edifice of lies, propaganda and deception over 9-11, the War on Terror and the horrendously deadly, 8 million-victim wars of occupation still being waged in Occupied Iraq, Occupied Afghanistan (and elsewhere). With 72 seats for Labor (the Labs) , 73 seats for the Liberal-National Party Coalition (the Libs), 1 Green seat, 1 Greenish independent (Andrew Wilkie) and 3 right (...)

Towards an uneasy peace in the Middle East?
By : gorraiz germán lopez - Saturday September 4, 2010
The new strategy of the Obama Administration’s Middle East seek to deepen the lines of negotiation "multilateral" (including the opening of a direct line to the Tehran regime and the establishment of an Arab ally in front, to isolate the hawks militarists, both Tehran and Tel Aviv) and would be further supported in the new UN sanctions on Iran with the aim of achieving real weakening of the Iranian economy and the possible revival of the "Green Tide" and supplemented with measures of (...)

Withdraw the Last Combat Politicians from Washington
By : David Swanson - Wednesday September 1, 2010
Pretending to end a war and occupation, while stationing 50,000 soldiers, 18,000 mercenaries, and 84,000 support contractors in massive and permanent military bases in Iraq is a far cry from what candidate Barack Obama described as ending "the mind-set that got us into war in the first place." It fits better with Nobel Peace laureate Obama’s description of war as "not only necessary but morally justified." Over the past 20 years, the United States has imposed on Iraq two intense (...)

Did the Israeli Defense Force Bomb Jews?
By : Bob Nichols, Project Censored Winner - Monday August 30, 2010
(San Francisco) – Israel, a nuclear weapons armed colossus in the Middle East, fights a lot of wars with two small, almost defenseless neighboring countries – Lebanon and Gaza. The 2006 War with Lebanon took a turn for the worse, though. Israel executed an emergency purchase for 100 plus US GBU-28 5,000 lb, or 2,722 kg, weaponized uranium aerosol bombs from their patron, the United States. The GBU-28 is a cobbled together weapon consisting of an approximately 20 ft long (...)

TOO EARLY TO WRITE-OFF THE NEW ISRAEL-PALESTINE TALKS – AN ANSWER TO JOURNALIST ALUF BENN’S EMPTY WORDS
By : JOHN CHUCKMAN - Saturday August 28, 2010
John Chuckman http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news... Too early to write-off direct talks? Please. Representatives for these "direct talks" on the Palestinian side in a sense do not even exist: Abbas’s election mandate timed out a year ago, and he stays in office under emergency measures – i..e,, he has absolutely no democratic legitimacy. But even poor Abbas, a kind of Palestinian "step’n’fetch it" figure if ever there was one, wanted nothing to do with such (...)

"Don’t mention the War": 50 Questions Australian ABC TV Q&A wouldn’t ask Opposition Leader Tony Abbott
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Tuesday August 17, 2010
The taxpayer-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), the Australian equivalent of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), has a TV program moderated by presenter Tony Jones and called Q&A. In Q&A selected studio audience members or viewers submit questions to a panel of 5 MPs, commentators or other public figures (all but one panellist usually being quite right wing) (see: ). In my view, the ABC achieves "balance" by positioning its editorial policy between the (...)

Today is August 15, Indian Independence Day, the anniversary of British departure from India and Pakistan and the cessation of a 2-century Indian Holocaust that killed 1.8 billion Indians through dire deprivation. Pakistan abandoned its Independence Day (14 August) celebrations because of the floods disaster but the US has continued its cowardly robot drone bombing attacks on defenceless Pakistani villages.

By Anna Theofilopoulou, Jacob Mundy, 12/08/2010 In what is possibly a first for the mainstream U.S. media, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof recently noted some of the parallels between Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands and Morocco’s attempted annexation of Western Sahara: "It’s fair to acknowledge that there are double standards in the Middle East, with particular scrutiny on Israeli abuses. After all, the biggest theft of Arab land in the Middle East (...)

The Gaza Prison
By : Cyprus Mail - Monday August 9, 2010
By Chris Patten Published on August 8, 2010 IT IS easier to enter a maximum-security prison than it is to enter the strip of land – 45 kilometres long and maybe eight wide – that is home to Gaza’s 1.5 million Palestinians. Surrounded by a forbidding wall, watchtowers, and deadly buffer zones, I entered with a hard-to-obtain visa at the Erez crossing – iron gates, an interrogation by bored young immigration officers and scanners. On the other side is a kilometre-long (...)

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

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
