Americans, people, world. This is going to be a long war, but we can do this one step at a time. If we find unsustainabilty, we need to smoke it out of its gourd and show it the light.

NUKE IRAN TO COVERUP DEPLETED URANIUM RADIATION?
Iran receives the most secondary DU dust from DU weapons used in Afghanistan and Iraq. Public health effects are measurable. DU dust has contaminated the world atmosphere. Fallout from a nuclear attack against Iran could be used to coverup the public health effects occuring from DU. A nuclear "bunker buster" attack against Iran could be prompted by an attempt to coverup DU.

Animal rights vs human progress: a contradiction?
The word "progress" has gotten a very bad rap in many circles in our times. At the same time, the notion of asserting some kind of political or moral rights for others in widening circles -- including other species, and even the Earth itself -- hsa gained some currency. Is there a positive vision of progress that people could agree on? And can these ideas be reconciled?

Why politicians hate immigrants
Throughout the history of the United States immigrant workers have been the victims of racism, exploitation, and in times of war, internment and violent attacks. While Spanish-speaking immigrants have had especially turbulent periods in the past, only recently have politicians made attempts at further marginalizing this already oppressed layer of society. Why these attacks are suddenly reemerging is something left unexplained in the mainstream media, and is thus an important issue to examine.

US Captain Receives "Honorary Order" from UK for "Campaign to Secure Iraqi Oil Assets"
Peterson, chief of staff for Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, was given the prestigious award for his leadership of coalition forces, which included a large number of Royal Navy sailors and marines, in the campaign to secure Iraqi oil assets during the onset of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.

"This is an outstanding award, and it means a lot to me," said Peterson, who can now officially put 'OBE' after his name. "It's an honor [to wear it on behalf of] the many fine Royal Navy sailors and marines that I served with."

"The United States of Israel?" – by Robert Fisk
Perhaps the most incendiary paragraph in the essay [The Israel Lobby] - albeit one whose contents have been confirmed in the Israeli press - discusses Israel's pressure on the United States to invade Iraq. "Israeli intelligence officials had given Washington a variety of alarming reports about Iraq's WMD programmes," the two academics write, quoting a retired Israeli general as saying: "Israeli intelligence was a full partner to the picture presented by American and British intelligence regarding Iraq's non-conventional capabilities."

Iran Acknowledges Opening of Oil Bourse Next Week
The US media refuses to acknowledge that Iran plans on opening it's Oil exchange up in EUROS beginning next week. The sanctions being placed on Iran through the UN will outlaw countries from using this market, thus keeping the US' stranglehold on the oil markets who have traded solely in the US dollar up until now. US would lose $1 Trillion a year if this market is opened.

Kevin Zeese: “Hawkish Israeli Lobby Wants War with Iran!”
The Israeli Lobby, with others, helped to instigate the Iraqi War. A scholarly report, the "Harvard Study," which was recently released, also documents the "unmatched power" of the Lobby over the national interest. Now, the Bush-Cheney Gang is targeting Iran for a pre-empted strike. Is the hawkish, hard right, pro-Israeli Lobby pushing for a war with Iran, too? Kevin Zeese, an independent candidate for U.S. Senate In MD, thinks that it is.

womb, we are given a birth mother and a birth father. At the same time we
are also given our earth mother and spirit father. I respect your freedom
to honour your spirit father in whichever way feels best to you. Through
all the generations of dispute, battlefields, bloodshed and persecution in
the name of organized religion, one thing remains irrefutable: we only
have one earth mother! We all share her. She is mother to us all.

A Wave of Red Hits the News
In China, propaganda dominates the airwaves and the publications, freedom is not a cherished idea, and dissent automatically leads to incarceration or death. The media is just another arm of one of the most oppressive governments in the world. In America, we watch our rights to free speech and to a responsible media system dwindle. We aren't as bad as China yet, but we certainly aren't the democracy we used to be. It's time to take action through more grassroots media work and through enacting legislative reforms for mainstream media.
