Bush Leaves A Trail Of Corruption, Criminality, Lies And Incompetence In His Wake

The US Presidential election in 2000 took place on the 7th of November. The two main challengers were, of course George W. Bush, and Al Gore. During the campaign, Bush stated “I don’t think our troops ought to be used for what’s called nation-building.” Rather interesting when you consider what followed. There were various legal battles which followed the election, ... Read More »

Katrina – Who Knew What and When?

The Times (which for our rabid right wing readers is hardly a “lefty” newspaper before any comments are made here) has this timeline of who knew what and when on hurricane Katrina: Saturday, August 27 At 10am, the National Hurricane Centre issues a hurricane warning for the “southeastern coast of Louisiana… including metropolitan New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain.” Forecasters predict ...

Is Rumsfeld Starting A Mutiny?

I’ve been trying to find a news article on Rumsfeld’s comments the other day, in which he basically said that you can’t blame the victims of Katrina for what has happened to them. Strangely enough, I haven’t found any reports looking at those comments, although, the comments are clear from the US department of defense website: In this disaster and ... Read More »

Democrat or Republican? Very often it doesn’t matter

I’ve stated quite often in the past that there really wasn’t much difference in substance between Bush and Kerry, just as in Britain, there may be a slight difference in tone between Labour and the Tories, but very often they vote together. Bushwatch takes a look at the Democrats’ voting records: With 17 key votes under their belts, 48% of ... Read More »

According to this article, from News24.com, Saddam Hussein’s lawyer has said that it was Iran, not Iraq who was responsible for the 1988 gassing of the Kurds: Issam Ghazzawi, who was part of Saddam’s defence team, told the daily Die Presse that “Iran is responsible for the murders of the Kurds” killed by poison gas in 1988.

Kennedy Says Iraq War Fuels Terrorism

This, the image of the US occupation in Iraq so far. The image shocked the world, and no doubt fuelled hatred against our so called “civilised societies.” There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the crimes that have been committed in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo make more people want to commit terrorist acts against our “civilised societies.” Charles ...
