Jeremy Hinzman, Hero

by Lou Plummer

In January, a paratrooper from the Army's 82nd Airborne Division, Jeremy Hinzman, loaded his wife, their son and a few possessions into their small car and drove from Ft. Bragg to Toronto, Canada. In a journey reminiscent of one taken by another generation of soldiers, Jeremy deserted, committing a felony punishable by death to avoid serving in a controversial war.

Myth and denial in the War on Terrorism

William Blum, 16.06.2004 20:19

Myth: USA is fighting terrorism.
The reality is that USA is exploiting the world, especially the 3rd world
who are in military terms not at par with the US.
Denial: The average American beleives that USA is truly fighting terrorism.
The reality is that the average American is in denial about the true evil
intentions of the US leadership to exploit the 3rd world of resources,
especially oil resources. The average American is also in denial that the
US leadership will most certainly eventually exploit them while proceeding
to exploit the 3rd world.

Good morning from Baghdad,

jamie, 16.06.2004 14:27

Good morning from Baghdad

All oil exports from Iraq have been stopped. The “official” death count of U.S. troops has gone up to 835. Main stream press reports now openly admit that the majority of Iraqis want the U.S. out now. Failure, as it turns out is not only an option, it is the only option for imperialism in Iraq.

But beware. Bush and the neocons are now turning their sights on Venezuela. There they will employ “all means” to destroy that nation’s democracy and steal it’s natural resources. If they succeed they may well sack the entire planet. No serious progressive person of any stripe can afford to stand by on this one. Be informed and be active on this critical issue. Neither John Kerry or the NYTimes will ever help us out here.

After the Iraq war report please read the excellent piece from zmag on the situation is Venezuela and it’s significance. And be the media. Please share this news as widely as possible. Peace. Jamie

Red Hill Tree Sit

by Randy Kay &amp; John Milton, 16.06.2004 04:32

Andy blocking Hamilton's proposed NAFTA highway. Police, followed by private guards, arrived at the site of the tree sit in the Red Hill Valley yesterday afternoon (June 1, 2004), forcing supporters on the ground to leave rather than be arrested.

Blasting is scheduled to begin soon to cut an 80 metre wide swath through the face of the escarpment to make way for the controversial Red Hill Creek Expressway.

In the early hours of Sunday, the protesters entered the area and managed to scale the trees and erect sturdy platforms without being detected by private guards posted less than 100 metres away.

Those occupying the trees in a small wooded area just west of Mount Albion Road intend to stay for an extended period of time, up to "several months" they claim, in order to prevent irreparable damage to the escarpment face.

Bolivarian Project in Mortal Danger

by Hans Dieterich;; June 15, 2004

The legalization of the recall referendum against President Hugo Chavez—conducted by the Venezuelan right with pre-meditated fraud and recurring acts that violate the rule of law—open the doors for a possible loss of power for the Bolivarian forces. Such a loss could occur either de facto or de jure (via the institutions).

The August referendum is, in military terms, the decisive battle in the four year war between the oligarchic–imperial axis and the presidential–patriotic axis. It is the Waterloo of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Ayacucho of Antonio José de Sucre, the Kursk (1943) of the Red Army, and the Carabobo of Hugo Chavez.

Cia still trying to "prove" WMD hoax

Will the neocons rise still?

Sue, 16.06.2004 00:58

It has become very fashionable to believe that the neocons are on the run, and their hold over American politics has finally come to an end. Nothing could be further from the truth. Although Iraq isn't going well, and the torture issue is proving to be a bit of an embarrassment for certain Washington elites, the power of the neocons continues pretty much unabated. They are keeping a low profile until it is clear that oil prices will stay low enough for Bush to be reelected, but their ultimate plans for the Middle East and the world remain in place, and are quietly advancing. Americans who think that some fairy godmother - either the CIA, 'patriotic' U. S. generals, or the U. S. Congress - is going to rescue them are dreaming in technicolor. All kinds of terrible legal things are supposed to be in the works for Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, and all the infamous neocons from Wolfowitz on down. Just who exactly will be bringing all these people to justice?

Georgia G-8: Model for repression @ Democratic/ Republican party conventions is matial law

Chris Powers, 15.06.2004 22:23

The Summit of the Group of Eight (G-8), the US and other wealthy “democracies,” networked from June 8-10 in Georgia to advance their free market plans while a state of emergency led to the suspension of basic constitutional rights. Not the “Miami model” of repression but the logical next step of domestic repression.
