George vs. Saddam

Will the competition never end. Dubya is now claiming that Saddam could cripple the U.S. Economy — Would he do a better job of it than George has already done.

Irrational Reactionism: The Last War on Terror

by valis

How has G.W. Bush’s reaction to the attacks on September 11th, 2001 differed from that of Hitler’s reaction to the attacks of February 27th, 1933? Sadly, not by much. Both implemented policies that were previously planned, such as pre-emptive strikes on sovereign nations, using the attacks as a pre-text. In both cases, governments used “national security” as an excuse to launch an assault on Constitutional freedoms, one under the guise of “Homeland Security”, the other under “Fatherland Security”.

“Middle East’s Only Democracy”…for some
After allowing the candidacy of pro-ethnic cleansing parties and candidates, Israel’s election committee is poised to bar virtually all Arab candidates and parties from upcoming elections. While Israeli racism and disenfranchisement against its minority Christian and Muslim population is well known and well-documented, even by the US State department, rarely does it present itself so egregiously, as PR is one of the main weapons of the state. Don’t look for this story in your local paper or television news, as it is vital to maintain the mask of “democracy” that Israel wears for the US market.

yah, i know the lie…

the government has our best interests at heart alla’ time, eh?

electorate?

GNN’s Spin of the Year

We tried to pick just one Spin of the Week story to feature as our Spin of the Year, but we couldn’t. The U.S. government’s propaganda machine was in overdrive in ’02, trying to rally support for an invasion of Iraq here in the States, and to prop up the image of America the Brand in an increasingly hostile world. Following every twist and turn was a full-time job. Luckily, GNN partners PR Watch were on it. We’d like to thank them for helping our Guerrillas keep track of Bush’s War on Tru… I mean, Terror. Here’s the lowlights.
“It is arguable that the success of business propaganda in persuading us, for so long, that we are free from propaganda is one of the most significant propaganda achievements of the Twentieth Century”

Rep. Rangel Calls for Reinstatement of Draft

Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel called yesterday for the reinstatement of the draft, saying it would give legislators pause before authorizing military action.

Rangel, a strident opponent of war against Iraq, said the United States has been “too cavalier” in its foreign policy. Its willingness to place troops in harm’s way, the Democrat said, is tied to the fact that many soldiers are volunteers recruited from low- and moderate-income families.

“Realistically, when you talk about a war, you’re talking about ground troops, you’re talking about enlisted people, and they don’t come from the kids and members of Congress,” Rangel said on CNN’s “Late Edition.”

More Americans seeking refugee status in Canada post-9/11

The number of Americans making refugee claims in Canada has skyrocketed since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to statistics from the Immigration and Refugee Board.

From January to the end of October this year, 191 filed refugee claims citing persecution in the U.S., compared to 81 in 2001, an increase of 135%.

Janet Dench, executive director of the Canadian Council for Refugees, said there have been some outrageous human rights abuses in the U.S., including arrests without charges and psychological torture.
