When is interrogation considered torture?

By Amo, published on Dec 20, 2007

...“fear”, and perhaps that’s what confuses the political pundits. Perhaps they equate fear with torture, and if that’s the case, then it isn’t torture that’s the issue, but rather the whole notion of interrogation. The Israelis know all to well “terrorism” and they’ve lived with it for almost 60 years, they’ve learned through death and destruction how to deal with it. Their methods at times may appear harsh to us. However we’ve never had to experience homicide bombers in our streets, as they have. Imagine for a... (more)

Exclusive interview Don Durant

By Phil Andrews, published on Dec 4, 2007

... book started more than thirty years ago, and never finished. I recently ran across the tattered manuscript and laughed out loud, but then decided I would redo it and finish it…someday! Q: What are the eight books about? A: The first is TO PROTECT AND SERVE, a thriller novel on Terrorism, where buildings in New York are taken over by terrorists and stocked with explosives, planned for detonation with the opening of the World Trade Center. The second is NO PLACE LIKE HOME, a novel on the Judicial system, depicting the pitfalls faced by a sixteen year old boy tried as an... (more)

Series - We The People - WMD Expert vs. White House #30

By Rose Mountain, published on Dec 2, 2007

...will watch the left hand while their right hand does their secret dirty work. Just as the British BBC News Documentary "Power of Nightmares" explains how US neoconservatives have created myths for decades to instill fear in Americans, the most recent is the myth of a global network of terrorism which doesn't exist, and Bush and Blair use these myths of fear to gain power and control over the US & UK. But Blair was forced to step down and the US has hundreds of high-level whistleblowers and their numbers continue to grow, so there's a big crack in the dike of the Regime. This... (more)

290 Flogs For Being Raped

By Kent J., published on Nov 26, 2007

...lashes. "I think when you look at the crime and the fact that now the victim is punished, I think that causes a fair degree of surprise and astonishment," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. Fran Townsend, President George W Bush's adviser on domestic security and anti-terrorism, said on CNN television: "The case is absolutely reprehensible. I just don't think there's any explaining it or justifying it." The seven gang-bangers were first sentenced to one to five years in jail, but those terms were later toughened to between two and nine years. According to... (more)

Series - We The People - London News Blasts Bush #20

By Rose Mountain, published on Oct 16, 2007

... 2007. Article below via Truth Out.org, FT.com link at end. http://www.truthout.org/docs2006/101007F.shtml "Since the attacks of September 11 2001, the administration of President George W. Bush has sought to cast a cloak of legality over the wrongs that it has committed in the name of fighting terrorism. Mr Bush seems to think that legal sleight of hand can be used to justify almost any tactic to battle terrorists including, it emerged last week, simulated drowning and other cruel interrogation techniques that Alberto Gonzales, his former attorney-general, appears to have authorised by... (more)

In Case of Katrina

By Credo, published on Oct 8, 2007

...who built and certified the levees for the city of Louisiana. Somebody must be large enough to be truly committed to the people who have been a source of dedication towards these insurance companies and who have been committed to the American way in service of this country ever since the beginning of this nation. These are our people and they are Americans……. I realized that there are many people around the globe during this time of global terrorism that don’t like Americans, but it is a very sad day when we don’t or won’t take care of ourselves. (more)

Ahmadinejad: The Misunderstood Dictator

By Chris Jones, published on Sep 24, 2007

The American people were able to learn a great deal from the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran today. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told students and faculty at Columbia University that Iran doesn’t like terrorism and wishes to be friends with all nations. It turns out we were all wrong about Iran! Women have all the rights in the world and are freely able to participate in every level of Government. No really! We were further informed by the President that homosexuals are in fact not executed in Iran, because there are no homosexuals in Iran. On the subject of terrorism Ahmadinejad... (more)

Angry and Unfortunately Not Forgotten

By Wild Bill, published on Aug 11, 2007

...now being watched. It's Orwellian, I know. But, it's also true. We no longer are allowed privacy in what we read, which means no privacy in what we want to know, to learn, to be. It has been taken away from us viciously in the night like some serial rapist laughing from afar. The word "terrorism" pops into my mind now. Maybe to comforting assuage my fears, rub my belly, make me feel better, offer some reason. But when will that stop? And how does fear play into winning a so-called "war on terror". Every time I feel our rights within reach that word is hurled at us, and half of us ... (more)

Terrorism, the Endless War

By Credo, published on Aug 3, 2007

In this day and age, it is a very critical period in human evolution. The eyes of the third world like Afghanistan, Iraq, Yugoslavia, (along with many more governments and innocent civilians who have been tortured, maimed and killed as a result of the American foreign policy) continue to examine, consider, and analyze American political history. And as they examine this country’s internal guiding principles, such goals as freedom, democracy, capitalism, or the bylaws of the Constitution they have fail to see where these goals of American beliefs are in line with American actions and policies... (more)

Gun For Hire

By Kent J., published on Jul 3, 2007

...loudly in suggesting that, while consumers should be protected, abusive lawsuits like this will not be tolerated," Manning said in a statement. "Judge Bartnoff has chosen commonsense and reasonableness over irrationality and unbridled venom." Ya think! These types of lawsuits are legal terrorism. They are successfully used by bullies who lie to abuse weaker defendants. The Korean dry cleaners’ owners said “the trial exacted an enormous financial and emotional toll on them and exposed them to widespread ridicule. “ The owners of the Korean Dry Cleaners should get ... (more)
