Pre-emptive strike policy.

by Miguel de Icaza

Anyone who considers a pre-emptive strike policy, should be pre-emptively be put in a mental institution.

For some interesting history, look at Pilgers's new article. Pay special attention to the politician's speeches. This was scary.

Pilger Documentary on Palestine.

by Miguel de Icaza

Pilger's Documentary available as a web page. It was broadcast yesterday in the UK on ITV.

Wish this got some coverage outside the UK though.

Some are more equal than others.

Salon is running an article on the War on Drugs and Jeb Bush regarding the different treatments that his daughter gets, and what other ten thousand drug offenders get.

The Video

by Miguel de Icaza

See the movie trailer for Occupation 101.


New Fisk:

So a few thoughts for the coming weeks: remember the days when Saddam was America's friend; remember that Arabs committed the crimes against humanity of 11 September last year and that they came from a place called the Middle East, a place of injustice and occupation and torture; remember "Palestine"; remember that, a year ago, no one spoke of Iraq, only of al-Qa'ida and Osama bin Laden. And, I suppose, remember that "evil" is a good crowd-puller but a mighty hard enemy to shoot down with a missile.

Understanding the problem in Iraq

by Miguel de Icaza

I found this history of the Iran-Iraq war very enlightening about the real reasons behind a war against Iraq. I will summarize it for you: US control over the oil in the Middle East.

The control is not required because a need on the Middle East oil, but because Japan and Europe are highly dependent on it. You want *your* companies profiting from that oil, and not someone else.

It also explains why Britain wants to get some piece of the action. In fact, they have always wanted to get a piece of the action.

My University acquired the rights to the photographies from the 1968 student movement in Mexico and released the digitized pictures to the government. They will be making the material available on line.

Palestinian Ethnic Cleansing by Israel.

Edward Herman does --of course-- a much better job than I do at showing all the international laws violated by Israel on his Israel Approved Ethnic Cleansing article.

Reports from Palestine

Direct from Indymedia. More civilians being shot.

So all my pictures for the best part of the day turned greenish. A phenomenon that can only be explained by the multitude of settings that the camera has, compounded with my random knob moving.

By the end of the day, I had figured a few things, but now everything is turning out red. The automatic mode in the D60 is not as simple as the one in the S40, not to mention that there is no way to get flash-less automatic.


Nelson Mandela warned Bush and Blair about war against Iraq.

Chomsky's Drain the Swap and there will be no more mosquitos.
