'Yes we can,' but REALITY indicates, NO you CANNOT! image Three high profile fugitives, Bush, Blair and Howard nano, Tuesday, Feb 3 2009, 8:20pm
As the world takes stock of the military and economic CARNAGE these men are responsible for it becomes ever more URGENT -- imperative in fact -- to place them in the dock of a war crimes tribunal and hold them accountable for their actions. We have no illusions, of course we are aware they are merely pawns but they CONSCIOUSLY engaged in the most heinous crimes committed this century and expedited the now FAILED strategies of various powers and interests – THESE MEN ARE ABLE TO LEAD US TO THE SHADOWY FIGURES that have for years PULLED THE STRINGS BEHIND THE SCENES. [Perhaps we have signed their death warrants!] (story and 2 comments and 2 images)

The Fresh Ripoff People image Oz supermarket chains profiteering in economic crisis Alan Jones via fleet, Sunday, Feb 1 2009, 7:39pm
The following report is an indictment of the ineffective Rudd government not an expose’ of profiteering, monopolist supermarkets, whose track record of price hiking and unjustified mark-ups is well known.

Why have governments if they are unable to govern, we may well ask? The people can go without many luxury items but no one can go without food! STOP the RIPOFFS NOW!!!

INTERVENTION IS REQUIRED from our pathetic, compliant (to the corporations) politicians -- you reprehensible, vile, UNAUSTRALIAN, servile scum! (story and 2 images)

A few choice expressions from the recent past; “cakewalk,” “mission accomplished,” ‘bouquets of flowers,” “we know Saddam has WMD because he just has,” “unknown knowns,” “global war,” “America does not torture,” “enhanced interrogation,” “Gitmo,” “military commissions,” “Patriot Act,” “Homeland Security,” “domestic surveillance” and “extended executive powers” etc. The result; over one million dead civilians, war costs that can’t be accurately calculated, a crippled economy and an international reputation in the gutter!

text ICC, no jurisdiction over Israel/America! barra, Thursday, Jan 15 2009, 9:27pm
The International Criminal Court confirmed, after Palestine brought war crimes issues to notice, that it had no jurisdiction over Israel or America – how convenient! All doubts are removed as to how or why leading terrorist nations, Israel and America, are able to wantonly kill civilians and commit numerous atrocities with impunity! Perhaps Bin Laden ought to insist on a similar arrangement, it worked for Kosovar war criminals, so why not! We should ALL demand equal dispensation or exemption – the LAW is truly an ASS or should I say a convenient means of avoiding JUSTICE! (story and 3 comments)

text Demand accountability or suffer more Fraud Frank Rich via rialator, Monday, Jan 12 2009, 6:31pm
Three days after the world learned that $50 billion may have disappeared in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, The Times led its front page of Dec. 14 with the revelation of another $50 billion rip-off. This time the vanished loot belonged to American taxpayers. That was our collective contribution to the $117 billion spent (as of mid-2008) on Iraq reconstruction — a sinkhole of corruption, cronyism, incompetence and outright theft that epitomized Bush management at home and abroad.

Two bullets for you, child. image Exposing God, the root of the Problem! finch, Tuesday, Jan 6 2009, 11:22pm
Everything we know, including our knowledge of ‘God,’ NECESSARILY (must) refer back to the source of production of that knowledge, HUMANITY! That rather obvious fact should be self-evident, however, few are able to appreciate the clarity and simplicity of TRUTH – have you not yet noticed that everything we know of ‘God’ has been PRODUCED and encoded BY MAN? Furthermore, all man-made Gods are peculiar to and described by the idiosyncrasies of the cultures that created/produced them! (story and 2 images)

Obama family image The nation’s First Family smiles while the blood of innocents flows quin, Monday, Jan 5 2009, 7:26am
What an utterly tragic and perfect disgrace. The first family of the USA is all smiles while other ‘less human’ families and children are blown to bits or lay dying in hospitals deprived of medicines and supplies – the result of an Israeli blockade and murderous attack on Gaza! We are reminded of the Clinton embargo on Iraq which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi ‘sub-human’ children; a price considered “worth it” by former Democrat Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright -- a taste of things to come!

Jack Johnson, against the odds won title in Oz image Not Good Enough, Barack! barra, Tuesday, Dec 2 2008, 6:42pm
Obama is the first president to face stark and overwhelming evidence of crimes -- including torture, war crimes and a host of violations relating to various international laws and conventions -- committed by a previous administration. These crimes are not trifling matters and any attempt to avoid dealing with them would forever (historically) stain Obama – a legacy the first black man in the White House ought to be at pains to avoid.

A small and largely unnoticed spat among the transition planners for the president-elect, Barack Obama, broke out last week. It was the first genuinely passionate debate among the Obamaites and it centres on a terribly difficult and terribly important decision that will be among the first that Obama has to make.

text CEOs 'cashed out' prior to economic crisis Tom Eley via reed, Friday, Nov 28 2008, 7:14pm
Balzac’s maxim that “behind every great fortune lies a great crime” may yet prove a fitting epitaph for American capitalism. A recent survey by the Wall Street Journal reveals that CEOs at major US financial and real estate firms converted tens of millions of dollars of overvalued stock into cash prior to the eruption of the current financial crisis, even as many of their corporations approached the precipice.

American forces prevented 'military-age' males (roughly 12-65 years old) from leaving the city and then declared a 'free-fire zone' on anyone remaining. They used white phosphorus and thermobaric weapons. They used snipers against unarmed civilians. They killed, and killed, and killed. It was like Poppy's 'Highway of Death', but worse. Congratulations, Junior, you finally outdid the old man. Not even animals were spared. (story and 1 comment)

is that America will more than likely be relegated to the background. The loci of power are inexorably moving EAST; and there is nothing outside a full-scale nuclear conflict that could alter that course – world leaders beware! Americans are proven mass murderers, as the civilian holocaust in Iraq clearly indicates! (story and 2 comments and 3 images)
