Venezuela contra el Imperialismo
El mes de diciembre es propicio para reivindicar el carácter antiimperialista del pueblo venezolano a lo largo de su historia. Para los venezolanos, los valores antiimperialistas de próceres de la patria como Miranda, Bolívar, Sucre, Zamora y otros, han sido reivindicados con el triunfo de la Revolución Bolivariana, ocurrida un 6 de diciembre de 1998, y luego refrendada por la voluntad soberana del pueblo, con la aprobación de la Constitución de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, un 15 de diciembre de 1999. Pero no debemos descuidarnos, hoy Venezuela es nuevamente amenazada con los planes de intervención del Imperialismo.

BRASIL: MAIS GRANDE DO MUNDO!, 14.12.2005 18:01

Debilitado por los escándalos de corrupción y cuando parecía desmoronarse su sueño de buscar la reelección, en octubre de 2006, Lula da Silva tomó el toro por las astas. La cancelación de la deuda con el FMI tiene varios efectos: por un lado, tendrá sin dudas un fuerte impacto sobre la credibilidad brasileña ante los ojos de los inversores internacionales. Y por otro, es también una señal de estabilidad, en momentos en que la política económica —en el tercer trimestre de este año el PBI cayó el 1,2%— del ministro Antonio Palocci recibía fuertes críticas desde el propio riñón del gabinete.

White House Letter: Watchword of the day - Beware the Caliphate

The New York Times - Elisabeth Bumiller, 14.12.2005 02:24

Western imperialist leaders have a tendency to mix truths with
lies to persuade public opinion to the advantage of their
agenda. It is interesting to note that the Jews enjoyed their
golden era under the Islamic (Ottoman) Caliphate.
If one were to do a little research, one would find out that
The Islamic Caliphate was anti-imperial and established
justice (for non-Muslims as well as non-Muslims) in the
lands it ruled.

Pre-Emptive Invasion and International Law

Garda Ghista, 13.12.2005 23:16

In studying the definitions of pre-emptive war and preventive war, it now seems preposterous in hindsight that nearly the entire American populace (including Congress) was so easily hoodwinked into believing that the US faced an imminent attack from Iraq based on so-called incontrovertible evidence. The United States has committed wars of aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq. The Nuremberg Tribunal calls this the supreme international crime. In the face of these crimes, the United Nations became an impotent entity, just as the League of Nations did during World War II. It is time to dissolve the UN and create a new world government. It must be created not by the wealthy elite but by the common people of this world, by moralists who will ensure that the Articles of its constitution will be adhered to. This is the crying need of the day. This is what we must work towards.
