UN sets April deadline for Syrian pullout (tags)
U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan has warned Syria it must withdraw all its forces from Lebanon by April in the latest escalation of tension between the international community and Damascus. The hardening of attitude comes as Syria said it will "redeploy" all of the 15,000 troops it has stationed in Lebanon to the country's eastern border with Syria in a last ditch attempt to defuse increasing international pressure against it.

Feeding the herd with an empty bucket (tags)
In my experience, you can catch a clever horse twice with an empty feed bucket. Then the animal quits trusting you. By now, the White House chicanery has grown so brazen that one would expect that even dairy cows and GOP "team leaders" would suspect that they are being had.
Case Closed (tags)
I don?t usually do this, but a reader sent me the complete transcript of the secret memo published by the Weekly Standard, and since their web site is still off line I?m going to mirror the article here, because it?s incredibly important news. ____________________________ Case Closed From the November 24, 2003 issue: The U.S. government's secret memo detailing cooperation between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. by Stephen F. Hayes 11/24/2003, Volume 009, Issue 11

Iraq Resistance *Condemns* the UN Bombing (tags)
In a recent statement aired by Al-Jazeera, an Iraqi Resistance group CONDEMNED the recent bombing of the UN Headquarters in Baghdad. They suggest that the bombing was done to DISCREDIT the Iraqi Resistance in general. This UN bombing couldn't be yet another staged "terror" attack/provocation could it? Remember, false Flag operations are an integral feature of US (and Israel) covert operations. Notice how the Western "free" press completely ignores this story/issue and automatically assigns blame to the Iraqi Guerrilla Movement.
Gee I guess it was Blood for Oil after all! (tags)
The scope and duration of U.S. control over Iraq's oil outlined in the resolution goes well beyond previous administration statements, which largely have been confined to affirmations that the oil was the property of the Iraqi people. Testifying on Capitol Hill in March, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said, "The oil of Iraq belongs to the people of Iraq. It's the source of revenue to run the country."
BUSINESS LOBBIES UN AT WORLD SUMMIT ON ENVIRONMENT (tags)
In an effort to turn the WSSD's sustainable development goals into profit-making ventures that will "green" its image, the business lobby gathered yesterday for a full program of "Business Day" activities, featuring representatives from notorious environmental destroyers such as Dow Chemical and Syngenta Corporation. They blamed poverty for the woes of the planet and tried to downplay their own abysmal records.
World Leaders Debate Environment and Economics at Largest UN Summit Ever Held (tags)
World leaders, activists, and business elite gather in Johannesburg to decide the fate of the planet in what is shaping up to be merely another clash between globolizatiion proponents who want to impose free markets and privatization as the path to sustainable development, versus environmental and social justice activists who say the neoliberal model is inherently unsustainable.
