The Iran War Is on the Front Burner
Monday, October 15, 2007
The war that Dick Cheney has been planning against Iran, has moved from the back burner to the front, and those who say they do not see this are either blind or complicit. Military deployments are in place, as laid out in detail in a Sept. 16 feature by Michel Khossudovsky in Global Research, while the statements of intent to wage war, issued by President Bush and Vice President Cheney, have been hyped in British and American news outlets.

Iraq Will Have to Wait
Monday, October 15, 2007
The long-awaited “progress report” of Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker on the status of the occupation of Iraq has been made, providing Americans, via the compliant media, with the spectacle of loyal Bush yes men offering faith-based analysis in lieu of fact-based assessment.  In the days and weeks that have since passed, two things have become clear: Neither Congress nor the American people (including the antiwar movement) have a plan or the gumption to confront President Bush in anything more than cosmetic fashion over the war in Iraq, and while those charged with oversight mill about looking to score cheap political points and/or save face, the administration continues its march toward conflict with Iran unimpeded.

Iranian Nuclear Energy Program
Monday, October 15, 2007
There are movements towards massing real challenges to the uni-polar geopolitical system that the ultra-right tendencies of the so-called Neo-Cons in the United States of America have created.

What follows here is in reality an epilogue to my speech of 4 July 2007 at the EU Parliament, and it is because the danger of war on Iran is being increased on daily basis.

Getting Lost In Translation
Monday, October 15, 2007
First I want to make some remarks about that now world-famous statement of President Ahmadinejad at Columbia: “We do not have homosexuals in Iran of the kind you have in your country.” The American media conveniently ignored the second, and crucial, part of his sentence as something redundant.
