SOTT Focus: Bush's 'Strategy for Winning the War on Terror': An Analysis

A few days ago, President Bush discussed the Global War On Terror at the Military Officers Association of America. In his speech, which was as littered with nonsense and hyperbole, one paragraph stood out as an example of how large the big lie has become and the recklessness with which the American president spreads it...

Best of the Web: US, Israeli armies plan ethnic cleansing of Middle East

In a little-noted article printed in early August in the Armed Forces Journal, a monthly magazine for officers and leaders in the United States military community, early retired Major Ralph Peters sets out the latest ideas in current US strategic thinking. And they are extremely disturbing.

Ethnically Cleansing the Entire Middle East

Maj. Peters, formerly assigned to the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence where he was responsible for future warfare, candidly outlines how the map of the Middle East should be fundamentally re-drawn, in a new imperial endeavor designed to correct past errors. "Without such major boundary revisions, we shall never see a more peaceful Middle East," he observes, but then adds wryly: "Oh, and one other dirty little secret from 5,000 years of history: Ethnic cleansing works."

SOTT Focus: SOTT Podcast: Islamic Fascism or Plain Old Fascism?

SOTT Podcast Logo
In the aftermath of this summer's Israeli slaughter of innocent civilians in Palestine and Lebanon, the Bush Administration has adopted the extremist slogan of "Islamic Fascism" from Zionist and Christian fundamentalist propagandists. For years we have been programmed by the mainstream media to consider Muslims and Arabs as less than human, a demonisation that permits the pathocrats in Israel, the US, and Britain to kill Arabs with impunity, and without a word of protest from their citizenry. This week we discuss the significance of the move to the label "Islamic fascism" and how the term has no relation to the regimes in question in the Muslim world. At the same time, fascism very accurately describes the situation in the US, Britain, and Israel. The REAL Axis of Evil, the US, Britain, and Israel, are in fact announcing their own plans for the rest of humanity.

Kremlin to blame for Beslan deaths, claims Russian MP

Almost two years after 331 people died in the Beslan school siege, one of the MPs investigating the tragedy has released a report that blames the Kremlin for the death of more than a third of the hostages, whose safety, he suggests, was not a priority.

Yuri Savelyev, an MP and member of the official parliamentary inquiry panel, claims that Russian forces deliberately stormed the school on 4 September 2004 using maximum force.

His account suggests the government disregarded the safety of the women and children cowering inside the school in southern Russia and that it was more interested in killing the pro-Chechen terrorists than saving the hostages.

SOTT Focus: Talking Peace, Planning War


Did you know that in the past 8 weeks, 200 Palestinians, most of them unarmed civilians and many of them children, have been mercilessly gunned-down by the forces of the state of Israel? Are you aware that almost every day at least one Palestinian civilian is murdered in cold blood by the state of Israel? Did you know that the US government whole-heartedly supports and finances this systematic slaughter? Did you know that the 1,300 Lebanese civilians that were murdered in Israel's turkey shoot in Lebanon last month would still be alive today if it were not for the financial and military assistance that the US government gives to Israel?


France: EU functioning worrisome

PARIS, Aug 29 (Xinhua) -- France's European affairs minister Catherine Colonna said on Tuesday that the European Union (EU) was in a worrying state and warned that the construction of bloc faced "dilution".

"The functioning of the Union, and largely the state of the Union seems alarming to me," she told a gathering of French ambassadors.

The EU was "suffering from a kind of wasting disease, a general fatigue that bodes ill for its ability to answer the needs of its peoples," she said.

SOTT Focus: SOTT Podcast: Signs of the Economic Apocalypse - Update

SOTT Podcast Logo
In October 2005, the editors of Signs of the Times sat down with John, a director of a Euro-zone bank, to discuss the state of the global economy. Ten months later, we follow up with John on what has developed. Is it possible that the control sought by the pathocrats over the rest of humanity can be achieved without bringing down the entire house of cards? What is propping up the illusory value of the US dollar? Does the doubling of the price of oil have anything to do with it? And, most of all, what can you do to protect yourself and those you love?

SOTT Focus: Faking Palestinian Resistance

I'm pretty sure no one was as unsurprised as I when two Fox news employees were kidnapped in Gaza 10 days ago, 'coincidentally' right after the Israeli-Hizb'allah 'ceasefire'. Israel and America's dog and pony terror show must go on after all, and 'ceasefire' is a dangerous word when your goal is perpetual war. Use the word "ceasefire", and before you can say "nuke Iran" the damn bleeding heart pinko commies are talking about "Middle East peace".


Australia: In thrall to the Bush lawyers

Those who subject David Hicks to an unfair trial may breach international law, writes Geoffrey Robertson.

The term "Bush lawyer" is Australian slang for a hick counsellor, ignorant of the law. Thanks to recent decisions of the US Supreme Court and inquiries into torture at Abu Ghraib, it has been given a wider meaning, to denote the lawyers in US Government service who have misunderstood or misrepresented the fundamental rules of human rights in their advice to the President. Their mistakes have been so damaging that the British Attorney-General has taken to tendering his own advice to the White House about Guantanamo Bay - namely to close it. The case of David Hicks should provide his Australian counterpart with an opportunity to do likewise.
