War and Profit

WAR and PROFITS



by Stephen Fleischman |

November 25, 2009

We know why there are wars, and we’ve known it for a long time. Good wars, that is, necessary wars, not wars by powerful foreign invaders, wars that might threaten our country.

Everybody knows we’re in the process of old-hat empire building, the kind designed by the British in the salad days of colonialism and for which they eventually took hits around the world by the likes of George Washington and Mahatma… Continue

As Head of the Commonwealth, the Queen used this 60th anniversary year of the Commonwealth to proclaim that this operation — something that the Chinese would call "a problem left over by history" — should run the world. "It is not enough to look within the boundaries of the Commonwealth," she told the… Continue

Climate Science

I'm not certain anyone will read this. But...



Abstract



For a variety of inter-related cultural, organizational, and political reasons, progress in climate science and the actual solution of scientific problems in this field have moved at a much slower rate than would normally be possible. Not all these factors are unique to climate science, but the heavy influence of politics has served to amplify the role of the other factors. By cultural factors, I primarily refer to the… Continue

The so-called anti-war movement currently finds itself in somewhat of a quagmire: What to do when the man you raised money for, volunteered for, and yes, even voted for, actually fulfills one of his most repulsive campaign promises?

Kill enemy children: Jewish edict

By Khalid Amayreh



A Jewish rabbi has issued a book giving Jews permission to murder non-Jews, including babies and children, who may pose an actual or potential threat to Jews or Israel.



"It is permissible to kill the Righteous among non-Jews even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation," Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, who heads the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the Yitzhar settlement in the occupied West Bank, wrote in his book "The King's Torah."





He… Continue

ClimateGate scandal demonstrates intellectual protectionism of modern scientists

(NaturalNews) The inconvenient release of private email conversations among climate change scientists has been a boon for climate change skeptics. What emerges from the leaked emails is a depiction of a group of scientists who practice "intellectual protectionism" -- meaning they know they're right and they'll do anything to protect their beliefs, even if it means hiding or manipulating data.



Sound familiar? Scientists in the pharmaceutical industry have been practicing this… Continue

If the Government confiscated everything, the social programs would still be $50 trillion short and the Government would still be bankrupt. Furthermore, no company or individual would be left with anything.

The economy is in bad shape. Some say it is worse than any time since the Great Depression. I believe it is actually worse than the Great Depression because of the level of debt.… Continue

Climate Change Data Shredded To Cover Tracks





SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.



It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.



The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to… Continue

We Have No Motive

I live in Minnesota, was home all evening with my wife at my side and don't own a gun, but...



How about tasering skateboarding kids?

Tasering old ladies, like 74 year old ladies?

Tasering people with expired tags?

Tasering people with expired auto registration?

Tasering people without auto insurance?



How about murdering innocent civilians?

Shooting people with 20 bullets, or 40, in the back?



Perhaps locking up a significant portion of… Continue

George Monbiot debates Paul Kingsnorth

I don't follow Monbiot or Kingsnorth carefully but I have read posts by both of them though infrequently. I have no idea what either man thinks of 9/11, climate change or other certain issues. What I do know is that they both believe we've reached a social and economic limit and I believe the same. What I do have is the ability to recognize intellect as well as the understanding that all opinions by all human beings have some value to us all.



They are, after all,… Continue

People Let's Say It While We Still Can "If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next"

Back in 1999, MANIC STREET PREACHERS wrote this beautiful song dedicated to INTERNATIONAL BRIGADISTS, young common people who changed shooting rabbits at the country side for shooting fascists in the battlefields of Spain, where DEMOCRACY was a concern of all the human kind.





"If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next"

The future teaches you to be alone

The present to be afraid and cold

So if I can shoot rabbits

Then I can shoot… Continue
