Bloodbath a bad omen for coalition forces
By : Robert Fisk - Tuesday April 6, 2004
The Star (S.Africa) http://www.thestar.co.za/index.php?... To the horror of the occupying powers in Iraq, the country’s ever more bloody insurgency has at last spilled over into the majority Shi’ite Muslim community. Coalition soldiers fought gunmen in the holy city of Najaf yesterday with the loss of at least 20 lives. The shooting started after protesters gathered at the Spanish base on the outskirts of the city following the arrest of an aide to Muqtada al-Sadr, the young (...)

Only an ’uptick’ in violence
By : Robert Fisk - Tuesday April 6, 2004
http://www.dawn.com/2004/04/04/op.htm#2 What has happened to the ’Coalition Provisional Authority’, also known as the occupying power? Things are getting worse, much worse in Iraq. Last week’s horrors proved that. Yet just a day earlier, Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt, America’s deputy director of military operations, assured us that there was only an "uptick" in violence in Iraq . Not a sudden wave of violence, mark you, not a down-to-earth increase, not even a (...)

Occupiers Spend Millions on Private Army of Security Men
By : Robert Fisk & Severin Carrell - Thursday April 1, 2004
Coalition of the Mercenaries The Independent (UK) An army of thousands of mercenaries has appeared in Iraq’s major cities, many of them former British and American soldiers hired by the occupying Anglo-American authorities and by dozens of companies who fear for the lives of their employees. Many of the armed Britons are former SAS soldiers and heavily armed South Africans are also working for the occupation. "My people know how to use weapons and they’re all SAS," said the (...)

Our movement needs days like March 20th, 2004.

One Year On - War Without End
By : Robert Fisk - Wednesday March 17, 2004
Saddam may be gone but peace has not come. Robert Fisk was in Baghdad when the tyrant was in his pomp and when the first bombs fell on 19 March 2003. His acclaimed reports revealed the suffering of the Iraqi people. Now, as the anniversary of the war approaches, he returns to a land riven by chaos, where liberation is a myth. The Independent (UK) March 14, 2004 http://news.independent.co.uk/world... The surviving Iraqi employees of the United Nations fearfully changed the plates on (...)

Resistance is the first step towards Iraqi independence This is the classic initial stage of guerrilla warfare against a colonial occupation By Tariq Ali The Guardian (UK) November 3, 2003 Some weeks ago, Pentagon inmates were invited to a special in-house showing of an old movie.

Occupied Iraq Will Never Know Peace
By : Tariq Ali - Saturday August 30, 2003
Tariq Ali The Age August 27, 2003 The recolonisation of Iraq is not proceeding smoothly. The resistance in the country (and in Palestine) is not, as Israeli and Western propagandists like to argue, a case of Islam gone mad. It is, in both cases, a direct consequence of the occupation. Before the recent war, some of us argued that the Iraqi people, however much they despised Saddam Hussein, would not take kindly to being occupied by the United States and its British adjutant. Contrary (...)

UN Attack Underlines America’s Crumbling Authority And Shows It Can Not Guarantee The Safety Of Any One Robert Fisk 08/20/03: What UN member would ever contemplate sending peace-keeping troops to Iraq now? The men who are attacking America’s occupation army are ruthless, but they are not stupid. They know that President George Bush is getting desperate, that he will do anything - that he may even go to the dreaded Security Council for help - to reduce US military losses in (...)

Protest vigil 26th June, 6pm at the US Embassy Members of the Belgian Platform Against War on Iraq, and local anti-war groups are calling for a protest vigil in front of the American Embassy in Brussels on Thursday June 26th from 6pm.

What are Americans Dying for Now?

Boston Globe June 18, 2003 What are Americans dying for now? By Derrick Z. Jackson Oil is to die for. More to the point, oil is precious enough for the government to send off your children, your husbands, your wives, your partners, your brothers, and your sisters to die for. That is a rapidly escalating conclusion as American soldiers continue to die at the rate of one a day in Iraq without destruction have been found. What we do have are sniper shootings, grenade attacks, and the deaths (...)

Artists Against Imperialism
By : ART - Sunday June 22, 2003
SUNEET CHOPRA Art exhibitions organised across the country to condemn the invasion of Iraq show that contemporary art is an integral part of humanity’s struggle against imperialist onslaughts. CONTEMPORARY art of the world has a powerful tradition of siding with the oppressed and the downtrodden. One of the best known contemporary artists, Pablo Picasso, not only painted his celebrated `Guernica’ as a visual protest against the Nazi bombing of a Basque village of that name, (...)

Asia Times June 18, 2003 Middle East US wages war from within Iran By Richard M Bennett With commendable stupidity usually only reserved for the most powerful and isolated from reality, President George W Bush has managed to go some way towards repeating the catastrophic mistakes of Lyndon Johnson and ensnare the United States in an increasingly unpopular and probably unwinnable foreign military involvement.

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 (...)

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 (...)
