SCOOP COMMENT & OPINION


-----------


Stateside With Rosalea: Arrogance And Stupidity

- Stay after school, Mr Fernandez, and write 500 times: "I must not say 'there has been arrogance and stupidity' by the US in Iraq." Bad diplomat! Climb back into your Green Zone bubble and hush your mouth! See... Emerald City, Golden State, Orange Jumpsuit [1]

Publishing & Banking: Suzan Mazur Interviews The Rescuer Of Banker Deuss' Canterbury Tales

- John Deuss, multi-millionaire Dutch oil man and, until recently, chairman of Bermuda Commercial Bank, is being questioned in his native Netherlands about "carousel" financial irregularities involving his Curacao bank. So what, you would be pardoned for asking, has that to do with Chaucer's famous stories? Deuss is surely a latter-day merchant telling tales as did his medieval forerunner. Someone who might, if the world's banking authorities succeed, have good reason to walk his own pilgrim's way and pray forgiveness. See... The Rescue Of Deuss' Visionary Canterbury Tales [1]

United States: As Midterm Elections Approach Iraq Gets More Like Vietnam

- With the mid-term elections looming dangerously close, and with public opinion in opposition to George's failed foreign policies crossing the two-thirds mark, the White House announced that they are going to present their puppet government of Iraq ...

    Religion: M. Shahid Alam Considers The Clash Of Civilisations

    - Terrorism has long been the chief demonizing marker that Israel and the United States have used in their wars against Islamic states and peoples who have stood in the path of their imperial ambitions. See... M. Shahid Alam: Muslims = Terrorists [1]

    War: Guest Opinion - The Word Of A Soldier

    - As a combat veteran wounded in one of America’s wars, I offer to speak for those who cannot. Were the mouths of my fallen battle brothers not stopped with dust, they would testify that life revolves around honor. In war, it is understood that you give your word of honor to do your duty -- that is -- stand and fight instead of running away and deserting your friends. When you keep your word despite desperately desiring to flee the screaming hell all around, you earn honor. See... Guest Opinion: The Warrior’s Code Of Honor [1]

    American Coup: Diebold Loses Its Voting Machine Source Code Again

    - The FBI is investigating the possible theft of software developed by the nation's leading maker of electronic voting equipment, said a former Maryland legislator who this week received three computer disks that apparently contain key portions of programs created by Diebold Election Systems.
