Flashback to 1991: "Kuwait freed, Iraqis crushed" (tags)
"The  war on Iraq was portrayed in the U.S. as a war without casualties. Yet, on the first day of air strikes against Iraq (Jan. 17, 1991), the U.S. dropped explosives equivalent to the explosive power of the Atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Throughout the duration of the bombing, explosives equivalent to seven nuclear bombs were dropped, in addition to internationally banned biological and chemical weapons."
Water Theft from Aquifers Benefit Developers at Expense of Ecosystems (tags)
Water theft from rural aquifers for the short term benefit of Las Vegas developers is a crime against the ecosystems and human communities that depend upon their water for survival. The theft of the aquifer water by SNWA is a sequel of the Owens Valley water grab by LADWP nearly a century ago. Any ELF actvists looking for training sites have over 200 miles of practice targets if this pipeline goes through. Maybe someone should send LADWP a message that water theft can be stopped by preventing transport. When the pipeline is ruptured in numerous places this water theft will become a more costly endeavor! The LADWP and SNWA needs to stop stealing water from aquifers and desert lakes!

Two new cave species were discovered near Great Basin Natn'l Park's Lehman Caves, part of the same cave aquifer system that SNWA plans to pump billions of gallons away from with their proposed pipeline. The species found were a shrimp called an ostracod and a cave millipede. Both depend on groundwater in caves that would be taken to Whittemore's suburban sprawl developments outside of Vegas city limits.

Cheney “Fixes” Libby, Cons America and Thwarts Justice (tags)
Vice President Dick Cheney is a Halliburton-challenged-con-man extraordinaire! Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) charged, via H Res 333, that he lied the nation into the Iraqi War and that he is also seeking, by hook or by crook, a war with Iran. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) said Cheney acts like he is “above the law.” Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL) urged, after “Scooter” Libby, a Cheney stooge, got his sentence commuted, that it’s time for “an inquiry into these very serious crimes.” Bottom line: Impeach Dick Cheney!

Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Kathy Kelly, gave a talk at the UMBC campus, on Nov. 20, 2006.

Baker heads up the so-called “Iraq Study Group.” Kelly roared: “We will wring our hands! One of the ways to stop this next war is to tell the truth about this war.

Abramoffgate: It’s the Same Sleaze, Just Bigger! (tags)
Jack Abramoff may be the sleaziest influence peddler to hit the halls of power in Congress - ever. As many as 20 Congressmen may be caught up in the crimes of this confessed master briber. Yet, there is nothing really new about corruption scandals on Capitol Hill. The biggest obscenity is this: Brave U.S. soldiers are dying in Iraq in a war sanctioned by the “most corrupt Congress in history,” and started by a wacky President - George W. Bush.

Anarchy is Everywhere (tags)
These days it seems like anarchy is everywhere. Of course, we’re not talking about chaos breaking out everywhere, since anarchism has never been about chaos. No, there seem to be more and more signs that anarchy is afoot, above and beyond and below the anarchist movement. We anarchists are used to thinking about anarchism in narrow terms: anarchists are people who call themselves anarchists and belong to something called “the anarchist movement.”
