Ex-FBI boss blasts MI5’s Ulster record
By : Sean O'Driscoll - Friday April 13, 2007
2 comments
A former director of the FBI has attacked MI5 for its "long and painful history" in Northern Ireland. Louis Freeh told the Wall Street Journal that the spying agency’s operations in the province had been characterised by decades of "secrecy and non-transparency" and argued against a similar agency being established in the US. This year MI5 - officially known as the Security Service and to be locally based in Holywood - will take over the lead role in intelligence gathering about (...)

"Looking from the side."
By : venceremos - Friday April 13, 2007
"Looking from the side." It takes an Ozzie mainstream journalist in Britain to have the courage to warn us that Blair is conniving with the Bushistas to drag the West into an even more horrible war in the Middle East: in Iran. "We are being led towards perhaps the most serious crisis in modern history as the Bush-Cheney-Blair ’long war’ edges closer to Iran for no reason other than that nation’s independence from rapacious America." He uses a phrase, "looking from the (...)

Wren Turney’s Knickers & the Royal Navy at War
By : venceremos - Thursday April 12, 2007
The aftermath of the captured Brit sailors business descended first into farce and then into a nauseating performance by pseud celebrity WRN, Faye Turney, denouncing the behaviour of her captors —"I thought they were measuring me up for a coffin" when they were measuring her for new clothes— and excusing her earlier confession by claiming, "I decided to play the dumb blonde." She didn’t have to try very much. Watching this spoilt, self-possessed, obese brat declaring to (...)

Five-legged frogs to invade rivers in Britain
By : Alexander Timoshik - Sunday April 8, 2007
Scientists in England are trying to determine why some frogs in a river in Peterborough have five legs, the first known occurrence in Britain. The discovery was made by naturalist Sharon Harris, who said she also spotted one frog with only three legs, the Peterborough Evening Telegraph reported. ’I was amazed to see them swimming about,’ Harris said. ’They are fully grown, but they`ve got extra limbs growing out their legs.’ She contacted the Natural England (...)

BBC: "Keep taking the Blue Pills!"
By : venceremos - Saturday April 7, 2007
BBC News 24, the international version of Blair TV’s media war machine, has just announced a decision by the British Ministry of Defence to ’allow’ the 15 navy ex-detainees to sell their stories to the press. This will only be permitted after the stories are vetted by their commanding officers! What blatant propaganda from the British corporate state! No intelligent person is going to believe that this is anything but another seedy attempt on behalf of the Blairite war (...)

ArchBishop has that wailing and gnashing of teeth moment

The Church of England is guilty of "corporate failure" because it has not properly spread the message of Christ, the Archbishop of York has said. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/... This is getting really fascinating. It’s like the Anglican church is in total meltdown. How long will it be before he checks out what Constantine did, and realises it has all been a lie?

Millions Escaping from the Matrix

The 15 British sailors, under pressure from their military commanders, are now changing their story and state they were mistreated in Iran. We had expected exactly such an outcome, these 15 young people or for that matter any other person within the Matrix will not be allowed to get out of it. This Matrix has been carefully created and crafted by the Western Military/Industrial complex over centuries. Once you are in it you are not allowed to get out of it except as dead. (...)

FOOL BRITANNIA
By : venceremos - Friday April 6, 2007
3 comments
One thing is certain, Tony Blair’s idiotic behaviour during the Anglo-Iranian maritime dispute did no one any favours, least of all the 15 British service personnel who were detained in Iran for just under a fortnight. Blair and his cohorts did a lot of huffing and puffing, insisting that the Iranians had grabbed the sailors whilst in Iraqi waters. This is the front that the British, with an orgy of jingoism from its media, have put up all along. In fact, the incident took place in (...)

Released sailors tell of ordeal
By : Maitreya - Friday April 6, 2007
Royal Navy personnel seized by Iran were blindfolded, bound and held in isolation during their 13 days in captivity, the crew have said. They were lined up while weapons were cocked, making them "fear the worst", one of the 15 freed sailors revealed. The crew were told that if they did not admit they were in Iranian waters when captured that they faced seven years in prison, a press conference heard. Opposing their captors was "not an option," they said. And after the 15 marines and (...)

A Steady Squeeze on Tehran

A steady squeeze on Tehran By Amandeep Sandhu As the conflict over the British hostages held by Iran plays out, another conflict is taking place in the boardrooms of banks and oil companies. The United States is leading a quiet charge, focusing on the Iranian financial and energy sectors. While the US has had sanctions in place against Iran since the Iranian revolution in 1979, there is a new, pointed sanctioning aimed at starving Iran of capital. The US is waging a quiet campaign (...)

Iran Shows the Way to Civilised Behaviour

15 British Sailors, who had no right to be in Middle East at all, were captured by the Iranians while intruding Iran’s territory. From the first day the Iranians treated them in accordance with laws of War and peace as laid down in the Quran. They were treated with respect as guests, provided good accommodation, food, and all the hospitality that the Islamic tradition demands. Contrary to what they might be urged to say by the British Military now that they are freed, there is no (...)

Fake Maritime Boundaries

Craig Murray, Barry Lando – Wake up from your Slumber.com March 28, 2007 I have been unpopular before, but the level of threats since I started blogging on the captured marines has got a bit scary. It is therefore with some trepidation that I feel obliged to point this out.

Call that humiliation?
By : Terry Jones - Saturday March 31, 2007
I share the outrage expressed in the British press over the treatment of our naval personnel accused by Iran of illegally entering their waters. It is a disgrace. We would never dream of treating captives like this - allowing them to smoke cigarettes, for example, even though it has been proven that smoking kills. And as for compelling poor servicewoman Faye Turney to wear a black headscarf, and then allowing the picture to be posted around the world - have the Iranians no concept of (...)

Brit “Hostage” Drama Pales in Comparison to MI6 and CIA Crimes Against Iran
By : Kurt Nimmo - Saturday March 31, 2007
“Perhaps we should get some perspective by imagining how we might react if the Iranians had occupied France and were patrolling the English channel,” runs a post on the UK Telegraph, responding to the capture of 15 British sailors by Iran. Indeed. But I can think of one better. Perhaps we’d get some perspective if we realized MI6 and the CIA plotted against the democratically elected government of Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953. “If there had not been a military coup, (...)

A second member of the Royal Navy crew captured in the Gulf has apologised for "trespassing" in Iranian waters, in a broadcast on Iranian television. The crewman, who introduces himself as Nathan Thomas Summers, says: "I would like to apologise for entering your waters without permission." A third letter allegedly from LS Turney was released on Friday in which she said she had been "sacrificed" to the policies of the UK and US governments. It also demanded an end to "oppressive behaviour (...)

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.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

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.

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 (...)
