AMERICA UNDER ATTACK - SCOOP SPECIAL

TOP SCOOPS


Muslims’ Cause Set Back By Decades

- If the perpetrators of this extremely horrible, senseless and inhuman act are Muslims; then it can be safely assumed that decades of hard work to improve relations between the US and the Muslim World and dispel the negative images of Islam in the West, will be severely reversed. See... US Under Attack: Implications For Muslims [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/WO0109/S00059.htm


Noam Chomsky On The Terrorist Attacks

- The primary victims, as usual, were working people: janitors, secretaries, firemen, etc. It is likely to prove to be a crushing blow to Palestinians and other poor and oppressed people. See... On the Bombings, Noam Chomsky [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/WO0109/S00058.htm


Lindsay Perigo Is Back, In A Relativistic Post-structuralist Kind Of Way

- My enemies keep telling me everything is relative & reality is subjective; there are no absolutes, no right & wrong; reality is not real, simply a construct in the mind of the beholder. See... Lindsay Perigo: Rallying Around A Phoenix [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0109/S00125.htm


Hard News Mailbag

- Well, this thing has a life of its own and the logical option seems to be to go with it. Below is a digest of some of the many emails I've received since Friday's Hard News and the subsequent follow-up yesterday. See... HARD NEWS 17/09/01 - Making Sense of It III [1] EARLIER: - HARD NEWS 14/9/01 - Making Sense of It [2] - HARD NEWS 16/09/01 - Making Sense of It II [3]

Scoop Images: New York Mourns

[2] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0109/S00121.htm


Stateside: Peace And Love District No. 9

- There's these three guys out goat-hunting, right, and they come to a stream that has been turned into a raging torrent by heavy rain up in the headwaters. They have to cross the stream and can't think of any way to do it as a team so it's every man for himself. See... Stateside: Peace And Love District No. 9 [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0109/S00120.htm


Big News: Shocked Out Of Security

- Asylum seekers, Ansett, and the NZ Aussie tri-nations test performance all faded into insignificance the very second that the first plane smacked into the twin towers, changing the world as we knew it. See... Big News: The Hunt For Bin Laden Is On [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0109/S00124.htm


Exodus From Afghanistan

- On the brink of war - Reports tonight speak of a human catastrophe unfolding by the hour along Afghanistan's borders while thousands of civilians flee the country. See... On The Brink - Human Catastophe On Afghan Borders [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0109/S00118.htm


Sludge Report: Who Was The Target, Bush Or America?

- In the circumstances one might imagine that Bin Laden, former employee of the CIA turned public enemy number one, may see all the justification he needs for his terror campaign against the USA in the fact that the USA is now headed by a man who was once the beneficiary of bribes paid by his father. It would seem grossly wrong for a war between millions of people to be started partly as a consequence of the personal enmity and bad blood that exists between two severely corrupt families. Is this the justice that George Bush and others say America's people are entitled to? See... Sludge Report #106 – Who Was The Target? [1] and The GW Bush - Osama Bin Laden Connection [2] RELATED LINKS - New York Times - ESSAY - Inside the Bunker - By WILLIAM SAFIRE - The Guardian - Bin Laden: the former CIA 'client' obsessed with training pilots

Scoop Link: Afghanistan Already Bombed Into The Stoneage

– “You can't bomb us back into the Stone Age. We're already there. But you can start a new world war, and that's exactly what Osama bin Laden wants”. See... Scoop Link: Afghan-American speaks - Salon [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0109/S00117.htm


Howard’s End: Hold On A Minute!

- From having no intelligence information whatsoever of terrorist plans to attack targets in the U.S. the West has now moved, in just four days, to being so absolutely certain of the perpetrators than it forms a posse alongside Sheriff George Bush to take the world towards war. Maree Howard writes. See... Howard's End: Show Us The Evidence! [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0109/S00113.htm


Guest Columns On The NYC Tragedy

- By Uri Avnery of Gush Shalom, Israel - After the smoke has cleared, the dust has settled down and the initial fury blown over, humankind will wake up and realize a new fact: there is no safe place on earth. Guest Opinion: Twin Towers [1] - By Leo Koziol In San Francisco - Its been intriguing, America makes so much of tragedy to its own. Living in San Francisco, which was razed to the ground almost a century ago, you carry an almost pregnant expectation of something terrible happening. See... Reflections: One Day In America: 9.11.01 [2] - By Kate Monahan In New York - On Tuesday morning the world as we knew it came crashing down. I had just arrived at work in Rockefeller Center in mid-town Manhattan. It was just after 9am. See... NYC Eyewitness Report: From Shock to Hope [3] - By Helena McMullin in Wellington - Whatever happens next, the attack on the US will be with us forever. It will be this time’s equivalent to the shooting of JFK – we will all always remember where we were when we heard about it – and it will eventually become a movie epic like the disaster ... See...

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>
