Cheney “Fixes” Libby, Cons America and Thwarts Justice
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) Vice President Dick Cheney is a Halliburton-challenged-con-man extraordinaire! Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) charged, via H Res 333, that he lied the nation into the Iraqi War and that he is also seeking, by hook or by crook, a war with Iran. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) said Cheney acts like he is "above the law." Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL) urged, after "Scooter" Libby, a Cheney stooge, got his sentence commuted, that it's time for "an inquiry into these very serious crimes." Bottom line: Impeach Dick Cheney!

Kucinich – A Man Whose Time Has Come
I went to the Kucinich rally here in Portland the other night - many of you know that I was pretty much sold on Kucinich anyway. Now I am ready to promote that man till he is in the White House.

I heard Edwards speak informally to a small contingent of peace demonstrators here in Portland about a month ago so I have a means of comparison. I admit I like both men but I am a person who looks at policy first and then I look for evidence of character. I distrust charm because I am aware that charm can be the first attribute of a con artist. I did not sense as much easy, natural charm in Kucinich as I had in Edwards, but I found Kucinich far more likable than I had expected.

Fear of Iranian socialists leads US to helped Khomeini overthrow Iran's government in 1979
"These contacts were encouraged by United States ambassador William Sullivan, who had no confidence in the Bakhtiar government, thought the triumph of the Khomeini forces inevitable, and believed future stability in Iran could be assured only if an accommodation could be reached between the armed forces and the Khomeini camp. Contacts between the military chiefs and the Khomeini camp were also being encouraged by United States general Robert E. Huyser, who had arrived in Tehran on January 4, 1979, as President Carter's special emissary. Huyser's assignment was to keep the Iranian army intact, to encourage the military to maintain support for the Bakhtiar government, and to prepare the army for a takeover, should that become necessary. Huyser began a round of almost daily meetings with the service chiefs of the army, navy, and air force, plus heads of the National Police and the Gendarmerie who were sometimes joined by the chief of SAVAK."

Thanks for Dick Cheney
Dick Cheney is the leading practitioner of the ends-justify-the-means mentality, where only his vision of the desired ends counts. Serving corporate interests rather than serving the people is Cheney's brand of patriotism. Our Constitution should not allow the government to make us victims and our nation hated by so much of the world. That's what Cheney should teach us. Now, it's up to us.

The basic scenario is so outrageous that it has left many people completely appalled. But one thing that hasn't been talked about much is the state of mind of the cops who killed Kaady.

Rewiev of the environmental situation in Angola
The harvesting of wood for use as fuel also has contributed to the problem of desertification. Desertification is the term used to describe the loss of soil fertility and structure to the extent that its ability to support plant life is severely compromised. In Angola, where desertification has its greatest impact, forest areas are often cleared in order to harvest fuelwood, (illegal charcoal) and for agricultural use. Traditional farming practices, which tend to be inefficient and land-intensive, significantly degrade scarce arable land -- the single most important natural resource in Angola. Desertification can lead to downstream flooding, reduced water quality and sedimentation in rivers and lakes. It also can lead to dust storms, air pollution and health problems such as respiratory illnesses and allergies in other hand is exploration of the oil and gas.

Worst Case Climate Scenario? We've Got It! Times 2
Two paragraphs from the British newspaper The Observer
about a Pentagon study:

"A secret report, suppressed by US defense
chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns
that major European cities will be sunk beneath
rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian'
climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts,
famine and widespread rioting will erupt across
the world."

"The [secret] document predicts that abrupt
climate change could bring the planet to the
edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear
threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water
and energy supplies. The threat to global stability
vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts
privy to its contents."

On 26th April 1986, a nuclear reactor reached melt-down at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The disaster caused by a flawed reactor design and serious operating errors made by the plant operators who lacked even basic training. Large areas of Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and beyond were contaminated. Around 150,000 people were evacuated from the contaminated area, and between 300,000 and 600,000 took part in the so called clean-up. Now, 20 years later the cover-up continues.
