Deciphering the media campaign against Nicaragua Sugar Estates and the Pellas Group (tags)
A stone in the shoe In a recent article, the most conspicuous organizer of ANAIRC´s disinformation campaign against Nicaragua Sugar and the Pellas Group (Grupo Pellas) and the boycott against Flor de Caña finally decided to make an incursion into a new territory, without completely abandoning his repetitive disparaging epithets, in an attempt to give a new appearance to ANAIRC’s claims and make them seem serious. Let’s carefully examine what this is all about.

CA Military Mom's New Book About War and Mothers Launches (tags)
Susan Galleymore made international headlines by taking the extraordinary and even dangerous step of traveling to Iraq in 2004 to visit her soldier son stationed on a military base in the so-called Sunni Triangle, north of Baghdad. What she found in Iraq – the horrors of war which was at once heartbreaking and compelling - challenged her to continue her journey interviewing mothers in war zones including Iraq, Israel and the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, Afghanistan and the US. These powerful first-person stories offer dramatic insight into the impact of war on mothers, families, communities, in those countries. On Sunday afternoon, May 3rd, local military moms, musicians, poets, and artists will celebrate the publication of Susan Galleymore’s new book Long Time Passing: Mothers Speak About War and Terror by Pluto Press / Palgrave MacmIllian.

Meeting Nasrallah: An Encounter with a Fighter (tags)
You need to reach the American public before American politicians. The public in the US is generally ahead of the politicians. Often public opinion conflicts with policies set in Washington. US politicians are usually elected by a minority of the population and represent two parties that are virtually indistinguishable on fundamental issues. If you can inform the public and get them to understand your position, they will put pressure on the politicians and hopefully prevent them from conducting their most destructive policies. Without internal public pressure, US policy is not likely to change significantly.

Schwarzkopf : Rumsfeld and the people around him lack the background to make sound military judgments
"Candidly, I have gotten somewhat nervous at some of the pronouncements Rumsfeld has made," says Schwarzkopf. Rumsfeld worries him. "It's scary, okay?" he says. "Let's face it: There are guys at the Pentagon who have been involved in operational planning for their entire lives, okay? . . . And for this wisdom, acquired during many operations, wars, schools, for that just to be ignored, and in its place have somebody who doesn't have any of that training, is of concern."
