‘Wipe off the map’: The Tip of an Iceberg

‘Wipe off the map’: The Tip of an Iceberg
A strategy for the falsification of the statements of Iran’s president -
by Anneliese Fikentscher and Andreas Neumann (29 July 2008)

"Iran's talk of destroying Israel must not be lost in translation." That
is the header of an article in the 'Jerusalem Post' by Joshua Teitelbaum
of the 'Jerusalem Centre for Public Affairs' [1] on 22 June 2008. If the

Reflections on the Hiroshima Bombing - from Connecticut


(Remarks of Stephen Fournier on August 6, 2008, at Riverside Park, Hartford, at Connecticut's annual commemoration of the bombing of Hiroshima)

Our descent as a nation into a pit of violence and lawlessness suggests to many of us that Americans are scum. We seem to have learned no lesson from events like the one we commemorate today, and we seem to be unmoved by the most atrocious instances of inhumanity and injustice.

Are we, as our media suggest, a people who crave exhibitions of violence? How is it that our casinos are humming even as our schools turn out illiterates?

Public Hearing on Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant


The meeting will include a video welcome from Nobel Laureate Jody
Williams, and brief presentations by economist David Schlissel of

Cliffs-3), solar power entrepreneur Albert Nunez, and others. And then
we want to hear your comments! All of your comments will be transcribed
and submitted to the Maryland PSC to become part of the official record.

If you're concerned about Maryland's energy future, want to stop global
warming, want to reduce air pollution, want lower utility bills, or want
to make sure we're not endangering future generations, now is the time
to make your voice heard.

Shameful History of Arming Sudan Mars Beijing's Reputation on Eve of Olympics


AUGUST 6, 2008

New York, NY- China has been the most egregious violator of the global arms embargo on Darfur, supplying guns and ammunition to the Sudanese government that have been transferred into the region, according to a new issue brief released by the Arms and Security Initiative at the New America Foundation. Since 2004, the vast majority of Sudan's small arms and light weapons have come from China, and many of them have found their way into the hands of the notorious Janjaweed militias in Darfur.
