Somali Jihadist: We’re Not Al-Qaeda
The U.S. brands the organization as an ally of al-Qaeda; in reality, it is also a nationalist anti-warlord movement that contains many Muslim moderates and has no international ambitions

9/11 : Tell us something we DON’T know
Tehran, Iran, Jan. 12 – Iran trumpeted a stunning accusation against the United States on Friday, claiming it had planned the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C.
The Chairman of the Guardians Council Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati described 9/11 as a “puppet show”, adding that it had been orchestrated by the Americans themselves.
“They used this event as a pretext in order to create the slogan of fighting terrorism and promoting democracy to carry out an assault on Islamic countries. But the reality is that they have been defeated in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, and Lebanon and their slogan has lost its effect”, Jannati told worshippers during a sermon in Tehran. His comments were aired on state television.
In September 2006, the head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps accused the Bush Administration and the Israeli security service Mossad of ordering the September 11 attacks.
The Real Friends of Terror

“What is the difference between the horror and the violence created by suicide bombers and the horror and the violence created by bombs dropped from 30,000 feet by airplanes?”
In case you missed it : The Power of Nightmares
Video Documentary :
In the past our politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares. The most frightening of these is the threat of an international terror network. But just as the dreams were not true, neither are these nightmares.
Can suicide bombers ever be justified? Professor Honderich, Britain’s leading moral philosopher, is unafraid to tell the truth as he sees it. Taking what he says is the betrayal of the Palestinian people as his starting point, Ted reveals who shares moral responsibility for recent acts of terrorism, and points a finger at the politicians. Video provided by “The Dossier”
August 2005 saw a report published by the Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN), which brought to light the growth of child prostitution, under the new liberated Iraq and how children as young as thirteen have become victims of this sexual tyranny, which the West has brought to these children’s doors.
The report states that extreme poverty has lead to an increase in gangs, who are going around and kidnapping children and forcing them into the sex trade, where hard currencies can be exchanged for the degradation of a young persons body.
So, are these the Western Civilisation promoted to Iraq People, then ?
George W. Bush: A Symptom of Disease
Sometimes you look around and wonder how things could have gone so wrong so quickly. America has become the antithesis of everything she purports to be. We are the greatest purveyors of violence the world has ever known; the largest weapons dealers on earth; and death and misery are our principal exports. Everything is for sale here, even men’s tormented souls—at least, those who still possess them.
Bush’s legacy: The president who cried wolf
Video and Transcript :
Only this president, only in this time, only with this dangerous, even messianic certitude, could answer a country demanding an exit strategy from Iraq, by offering an entrance strategy for Iran.
Video : Noam Chomskey, explores how government and big media businesses cooperate to produce an effective propaganda machine in order to manipulate the opinions of the United States populace.
Iraq’s Sovereignty? What’s Left
When Iraq’s prime minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki “decided to go ahead with the hanging (of Saddam Hussein) the Americans said they made no further attempts to stop it, having concluded that they could advise the Iraqis against the execution, but not prevent it if the Iraqis persisted, out of respect for Iraqi sovereignty” (my italics, New York Times, January 3, 2007).
Given that Washington’s respect for Iraqi sovereignty hasn’t prevented an invasion, occupation and installation of a puppet government, it seems curious that respect for Iraqi sovereignty should suddenly stay Washington’s hand.
News Flash! Three very reliable eyewitnesses confirmed to me the following
- Al Adhamiya District , a predominantly Sunni neighborhood, has been shelled heavily.
The home of one of the persons has been partly blown away. She and her husband saw several corpses , at least three according to her, lying in different streets in Adhamiya.
She and her husband were not “quite sure” if it was the Iraqi Army, the US occupation forces or the Mahdi Death Squads. Her husband added:” It is probably the three of them.”
- Karrada District, a mixed neighborhood. Sunni/Shi’a and Christians.
The third person stated that they have been without electricity for the 5th day in a row.
The shelling and mortar bombs have been continuous. Since most Iraqi homes use gas or kerosene for heating , they have been “freezing”. It is impossible to go out and purchase any.
Supplies are short and it is too dangerous to leave the house.
More of the same . Different Soooneeeee (sunni) neighborhoods, same stories.
>From very, very reliable eyewitnesses :
- Al Amariya : Remember this name ? Remember the shelter where over 300 women and children were seeking refuge from the B52′s bombs during “Desert Storm”?
For those of you with short memories , it is also referred to as Gulf I. A very smart missile carbonized to death and during their sleep, all those who sought shelter in Al Amariya.
For well over a week, Amariya has been encircled by American occupation forces, the puppet iraqi army and of course who else but the Badr/Sadr Iranian backed milita-death squads.
The crackdown in Baghdad and the anticipated bombing of Iran will have no significant affect on the war’s outcome. America has lost its ability to influence events positively or to arbitrarily assert its will. We’re now facing “death by a thousand cuts” and the steady erosion of US power.
Worst yet to come for US in Baghdad
THE plan by the US President, George Bush, to send tens of thousands of US and Iraqi reinforcements to the Iraqi capital to aggressively confront Sunni insurgents and Shiite militias will touch off a more dangerous phase of the war, featuring months of fighting in the streets of Baghdad.
Even a cursory review of Bush’s speech shows that the president is less concerned with “security” in Baghdad than he is with plans to attack Iran. Paul Craig Roberts was correct in his article yesterday when he questioned whether all the hoopla over a surge was just “an orchestrated distraction” to draw attention away from the real war plan. (“Troop Escalation and Iran”, Information Clearinghouse”). Apparently, it is.
As Roberts noted, “The US Congress and the media are focused on President Bush’s proposal for an increase of 20,000 US troops in Iraq, while Israel and its American neoconservative allies prepare an assault on Iran.”
Western companies may get 75% of Iraqi oil profits
Iraq’s massive oil reserves may be thrown open for large-scale exploitation by Western oil companies – which could end up grabbing up to 75% of the beleagured nation’s oil profits – under a law seen coming before the Iraqi parliament within days, the Independent reported on its Web site Monday.

Somalia – the Next Afghanistan + Iraq?
Africans have constantly warned of the American military design on the Eastern seaboard. Yet, our “leaders” have thoughtlessly been currying favour with this vicious military power. In the horn, the heavily militarized Ethiopia has become their ‘on the scene agent’, doing the dirty work of the American warmonger.
Somalia: Afghanistan remixed
The “war on terror” is back with a bang. First Afghanistan, then Iraq and now Somalia. And Iran could well be the next Islamic nation to be bombarded by the US – as President George W Bush telegraphed in his “surge” speech on Wednesday.
Somalia: Fighting “terrorism” or quest for oil?
What has been the concrete involvement of the U.S. in this war between Ethiopia and Somalia, two of the poorest countries in the world?

Many Killed as Somali warlords agree joint army
Somali warlords agreed on Friday to merge their forces into a new national army to tame the anarchic nation, but fighting outside the presidential palace where they met showed how hard that task will be.
What’s at stake in the Horn of Africa
An estimated 15,000 Ethiopian troops invaded Mogadishu, the capital of the African country of Somalia, in late December to militarily defeat the Islamic Courts Union. The ICU until recently controlled large sections of the southern part of that country. It has now pulled back from the cities and said it will conduct guerrilla warfare against the invaders.

Who’s afraid of peace?
Thousands of Israeli officers, officials concerned about implications of peace
The situation seems strange: Assad offers talks, yet Israel rejects them. The world offers a Road Map, Israel “adopts it,” but in practice thwarts it. Mahmoud Abbas wants an agreement, but he’s ignored until Hamas rises to power. Hamas offers a temporary ceasefire, but Israel rejects the offer while continuing with detention operations and expending settlements.
Israel destroys Negev Bedouin village for second time
On Tuesday, January 9th, Israeli forces entered the Bedouin village of Twail Abu Jarwal in the Northern Negev for the fifth time, in order to demolish it. Large police forces, with the aid of special-task forces and with the aerial help of a helicopter and two bulldozers, demolished
the entire village. Twenty-one homes, shacks, brick rooms, and tents were destroyed. During the last battle Israel waged against the residents of this village, on 6 December 2006, Israeli forces demolished 17 homes – more than half the village. But the villagers, with the help of friends and the Regional Council for the Unrecognized Villages, managed to rebuild roofs over their heads, to protect them from the harsh Negev winter weather. Today, however, it seems that Israel might have won the battle — and the war — against its citizens in the Northern Negev.
