One photograph I saw showed a newborn baby with three heads.

That's a quote from a BBC report on the ongoing, and growing, number of birth defects in kids in Fallujah."They were well aware that what they said went against the government version, and we were told privately that the Iraqi authorities are anxious not to embarrass the Americans over the issue. There are no official figures for the incidence of birth defects in Falluja. The US military authorities are absolutely correct when they say they are not aware of any official reports indicating an increase in birth defects in Fallujah - no official reports exist

Well, now we know… Shades of the Kurdish Shepherd

The speculation about why we weren't getting an Hourly Victory Report Update from the Helmand Province Massacre had a large spectre nobody was willing to say... that they were massacring civilians. Billy McMethamphetamine, Commander on the ground there, acknowledged 12 civilians killed by the "smart bombs" fired against the "insurgents". Since the "insurgents" are people who actually LIVE there, wouldn't that make the Imperial Storm Trooper Invaders the REAL "insurgents"? They even use the base word of Insurgent, "surge" as part of the title they give their strategy.

The “difference” between an IED and a land-mine

Is the difference between a Militia Group (like those commanded by Washington) and the VietMinh or the Taliban "Insurgents" A matter of Semantic Perspective that's vital to propagandists, espicially if the Propagandists don't have anything better. It's the so-called "difference" between "conqueror" and "liberator" , USAF Bomber v Suicide Bomber Decapitation with a sword and decapitation with a .50 caliber round fired frim a Vulcan electric motorized Gatling gun. 14410

Where and when the Attack?

Colorado Springs Gestapo and their enablers in the City Council are planning a massive assault on people whose only crime is that of being poor. They're in a meeting right now to iron out the details. Maybe the people should move their camps to Sand Creek in order to lend more Historic significance to the Planned Massacre. 12386

Peru police shoot indigenous protestors

Peru's military has opened fire on indigenous activists who were blocking further Amazon mining, helicopters have been seen dumping charred bodies into the river to cover-up the death toll. Contact the Peruvian embassy - solidarity actions are planned June 11 through 16.

If others can kill, Israel wants permit too

June 6th is the 42nd anniversary of Israel's seizure of Gaza. At right is a UK newspaper ad placed by the Anti-Defamation League, one of Israel's myriad damage control engines, when UK students were calling to boycott Israel over its attacks in Gaza. 400,000 killed in Sudan, so Israel should get a pass on its 1,300 victims in Gaza? It sounds like the IDF expects allowances to be made for its periodic ethnic cleansing, permits maybe, like polluters trade carbon credits. The US Humane Society euthanizes 5.4 million dogs every year, no doubt it's just a double standard to demonize Israel for bagging their 1,300 in Gaza. 7971

June 6 — End the Siege of Gaza!

From A.N.S.W.E.R.: Saturday, June 6 marks the 42nd anniversary of the Israeli seizure of Gaza. Organizations and individuals in solidarity with the people of Palestine will be taking to the streets once again to demand: End the Siege of Gaza! 7822

Leischmaniasis.

An infestation of a parasite carried by a small genus of biting flies, Leischmania. Most of them indigenous to Mesopotamia. 7595

UCSB Prof William Robinson pro-Semite

Wouldn't you think it bad form for Israeli militants to behave like Nazis, while immunizing themselves with the self-righteous indignation that any criticism of their actions can simply be dismissed as "anti-Semitic?" Photographs and confessions emerging from the IDF's atrocities in Gaza just beg comparison the German Einsatzgruppen in Poland. Earlier this year UC Santa Barbara professor William Robinson forwarded an email photo essay to a UCSB listserv, the already much-circulated side by side comparison to the WWII atrocities. Two students complained, plagiarizing stock IDF lingo. Now the Anti-Defamation League wants Robinson to recant. With IDF propagandists pouring on the bullshit, let's revisit the documents. 7589

Six Days in Fallujah if you missed the fun

As virtual-gaming distributer Konami reconsiders its release of SIX DAYS IN FALLUJAH, gaming pundits ask "Is it too early to role-play the Second Battle of Fallujah?" To non-US-vets it's known simply as "Fallujah," as one would denote Lidice or Srebrenica, by name alone. I don't know, when will it be appropriate to satiate the nostalgic veteran gamer's appetite to reenact war crime? 7583

ANZAC

I was going to do a short teach-in at the EcoFair today, (along with selling my Eco Jewelry) but i've got a mucked up arm. More on that later. Short story, I didn't go. 7556

Oh, that bad view from the Yad Vashem ‘museum’!

Yad Vashem is a Jewish State 'Holocaust Museum' with a bad view. It is a site set to 'remember' the slaughter of Jews in WW2 but it also sits with an actual physical view out over the local area where JEWISH Zionist TERRORISTS slaughtered their Arab Palestinian neighbors in the 1948 massacre at Deir Yassin .....Shhhh.... don't mention it, please. Yad Vashem fires employee who compared Holocaust to Nakba 7536

The Full Text of Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s speech

At last we have a copy of the full text of the Iranian President's speech at the Durban Review Conference on racism and now we can examine just how it has been misrepresented as vile, ugly, and racist by vile ugly racists. The fact is that the main point of the speech actually has next to nothing to do directly with Israel or Jewish people at all, but rather is an attack on the war-like and imperialist United Nation Security Council and the undemocratic nature of this US controlled organization. 7505

Mother Jones and the children of Ludlow

APRIL 20 MARKS THE 95TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LUDLOW MASSACRE. From her 1925 autobiography, Mother Jones wrote about the UMWA strike in Ludlow Colorado, over the harsh winter of 1914. 7476

Mother Jones: You Don’t Need a Vote

After the 1914 Ludlow Massacre and the later capitulation of the UMWA union, Mother Jones, by now 85 years old, toured the US to spread the word about what happened. She wrote in her autobiography, about a meeting in Kansas City: "I told the great audience that packed the hall that when their coal glowed red in their fires, it was the blood of the workers, of men who went down into black holes to dig it, of women who suffered and endured, of little children who had but a brief childhood. 'You are being warmed and made comfortable with human blood' I said. ... 'The miners lost,' I told them, because they had only the constitution. The other side had bayonets. In the end, bayonets always win.'" 7471

Springs Utilities and “Right to Work” law

Which is really the "right to fire you if you get injured on the job or if you seek fair compensation for your labor or if you form (or join an existing) an organization which represents the workers to ensure the Equal Protection Under the Law and right to petition the Government for redress of grievances" law. 7353

Ludlow Massacre or unhappy incident?

COLORADO COLLEGE- CC is holding a symposium on the 1914 Ludlow Massacre. Actually, it's only called the Ludlow Symposium. True to Colorado Springs form, several among the audience want to call it an "incidence," instead of a "massacre." One of the participants, author Scott Martelle, is willing to oblige, explaining that if the militia hadn't known that women and children were taking shelter beneath the tents which they were putting to the torch, then the soldiers were guilty only of criminally negligent homicide. 7338

Driving Miss McIntosh

DENVER- At first the testimony from a CU committee member who voted to dismiss Ward Churchill seemed utterly damning. Dr. Marjorie McIntosh, retired Distinguished Professor of history, gave her testimony by video because she would be lecturing in England at the time of the Churchill v CU trial. She came across like a wise elder, her scolding kind and maternal. She had me convinced that Ward should be sent to his room, but for an indelible pallor that began to infect her testimony as the retired professor grew tired under scrutiny. And like the history of 14th Century England which was her specialization, it became inescapably evident that Marjorie McIntosh was very, very white. 6999

Ward Churchill: Some People Push Back

Here is Ward Churchill's notorious 9/11 "Little Eichmanns" essay, published online September 12, 2001, presented here for archival purposes lest critics think they can silence one of our nation's strongest dissenting voices. Churchill later expanded this piece into a book entitled On the Justice of Roosting Chickens: reflections on the consequences of U.S. imperial arrogance and criminality published by AK Press in 2003. 6966

The Gaza Zoo massacre- a look at Israeli military propagandist version of events?

Israel blew up a lot of schools in Gaza and destroyed the Gaza Zoo killing many of the animals there with gratuitous gunfire and not just gratuitous bombs. Here is what the Israeli military told the Jewish State back home about why they did this. See Hamas Booby Trapped School and Zoo ...As one can see, it is essentially a variation of the old time worn out excuse by both the US and Israeli militaries, that the opposition forces were cowardly and hiding themselves behind children, and in this case of the Israeli Gaza Zoo rampage hiding themselves behind even zoo animals! 6590

Happy shall they be who take your little ones and dash them against the rock!

1   By the rivers of Babylon         there we sat down         and there we wept         when we remembered Zion.   Psalm 137, writes Joel Kovel, is "a virtual anthem of the Zionist cause." The passage is subtitled in the New Revised Standard Edition Bible as Lament over the Destruction of Jerusalem. You probably recognize the phrases from gospel music:   4   How could we sing the Lords song         in a foreign land?   But omitted from the musical versions, and popular discourse at least outside of Israel, is the longing for revenge, expressed in verses 7-9: 6585
