View From The Treetops (2 June '06)

Brian Haw

This man has been protesting US/British actions on Iraq non-stop since 2001
He has been beaten, harassed by police, charged with ‘crimes’ made statute specifically for him (commonly known as Haw's Law) - he is a thorn in Tony BLiar’s side.
The man is a war hero.

Read Michael Dickenson's update on this story.

For another layer of the events read Maryann Keady's report.


Ahmadinejad's Second Letter

Why aren't the major networks reporting this? Oh hang on... what am I saying?

Back in the early 1960s, rightwing ideologue Herman Kahn, father of the “futurology” movement, dedicated friend of Israel, and a pioneer in the use of scenarios and “advanced statistical modeling” in military strategy said that:

History is likely to write scenarios that most observers would find implausible not only prospectively but sometimes, even, in retrospect. Many sequences of events seem plausible now only because they have actually occurred; a man who knew no history might not believe any. Future events may not be drawn from the restricted list of those we have learned are possible; we should expect to go on being surprised

And Herman was damn right!

From Baghdad to Basra nothings seems to be going according to plan, but our Pentagon-based Neoconometrician masters can’t be bothered with “defeatist” thoughts of self-criticism: after all, they still have a grand mission to accomplish…

Faster please!

Pisces, this interview (as was the letter before) is available online, and most major networks did report it. Also, if you have in view who Ahmadinejad is, you should think again: is it wise to fight an evil with another and not less dangerous evil? Ahmadinejad has no excuse, sorry. Neither the regime one unwillingly supports if supports Ahmadinejad. This was an interview in The Spiegel, and it was reported, though it wasn't a major event.

doc: I'm going as fast as I can.
red: Thanks for the correction, I agree with your point re: who Ahmadinejad is, but that does not mean he should not be heard.

Redwine said...

Pisces, sorry: my simpathy goes with the victims, and as you well know, their voice should be heard but cannot be heard. This wasn't even "news" yet it had a wide audience.

??You've lost me??

Redwine said...

Who? What? Where? Why?
