[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00105.htm


Scott Ritter Gets The Cointelpro Treatment

- This is what we're up against, in America: an evil that is almost demonic in its pure malevolence, a dark destructive spirit that feeds on pain and is animated by the will to crush its enemies underfoot. This is the face of an enemy that must be defeated. See... UQ: Target Scott Ritter - The War Party Gets Ugly [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00096.htm


Listener Feature: How crucial is the Qantas buy-in to Air New Zealand’s success?

- Fish need bicycles as much as Air New Zealand would seem to need a “strategic alliance” with its arch rival, Qantas. In fact, the decision to conditionally approve this deal as being in the “national interest” marks a defining moment for the Clark government. See... Feature: Waiting In The Wings [1] - And see… http://www.debateairnz.org.nz.. if you support proper scrutiny of the Air NZ/Qantas merger.

Tube Talk: New Year’s TV

- A new year brings with it renewed optimism that you’ll be less of a TV-watching slob. As the sun shines and you enjoy your holiday, you imagine achieving all kinds of spiffy self-improving goals: going to the gym more, spending more time in the kitchen slaving over that Jamie Oliver cookbook your Mum gave you for Christmas, and forgoing another new pair of shoes so you can pay off your Visa bill instead. See... Tube Talk - Beware of Bachelors [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00104.htm


Howard’s End: Bashed Boy To Be Dumped By ACC

- ACC is yet again under public scrutiny following revelations in The Press newspaper and on television that a Christchurch boy bashed unconscious by a dog in 1993, is to be dumped from the scheme next week after a fresh assessment commissioned by ACC has doctors changing their minds.

Chuckman: A Poor Excuse For A War

[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00101.htm


John Kaminski: America’s Defenders Disastrous Record

- If the U.S. government's defensive response was anything like it was on 9/11/2001, and the invasion was anything like we imagined during the Cold War, you could rest assured that all the targets would be destroyed, the perps would get away, and America would never figure out who actually did it. See... John Kaminski: What If America Was Really Invaded? [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0301/S00099.htm


History Always Repeats – Stealing Iraq’s Oil Again

- In all the countless hours the corporate media devote to broadcasting the Bush administration's lies and deceits about Iraq, that simple and crucial question is almost never addressed. And for good reason. See... US Corporations & Iraqi Oil, Skulduggery Since 20s [1] ...See also COUNTDOWN TO WAR FEATURE PAGE [2]

Daily Katya Rivas

- Hope is always green because it does not turn pale with the fluctuation of human things, it does not pall with the winds of setbacks, and it does not change under the rain of contradictions. Here I have explained the mystery. See... Katya Rivas: Trust Is an Act of Love and Hope [1]
