3: The Development Of War Propaganda

The hackneyed phrase maintains that truth is the first casualty of war, but this does not suggest nearly clearly enough that it is a casualty because the US and UK governments are making a concerted attempt to destroy it.

http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00277.htm


4: Contradictions & Absurdities Concerning Iraq War

The title could be the name of a television quiz show, although I doubt the subject matter would attract a large audience, especially in that key market of the United States.

8: Wartime Mind Control Tactics – A Survivor Speaks

Something’s been bothering me lately. My fear stems from the awareness that a successful campaign is being waged through much of the media to shut down logic and critical thinking in the minds of most Americans.

9: IAEA labels Bush "fake", Powell "inauthentic"

http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00261.htm


13: HARD NEWS 31/03/03 - The Missiles Etc.

The latest posts are below. Mine is a bit of Internet sleuthing about the missile attacks that killed so many civilians in Baghdad last week - we're being lied to - Jolisa's is another crucial dispatch from New York, and Chad's is some weird jazz.

http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00290.htm


14: Kidd Millennium: Shock 'N Awe

Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since the US’s first pre-emptive strike on Iraq and still no sign of that new boy band “Shock ‘Nawe”. American patriots and war protestors alike have been glued to their TV sets like moths to a flame to catch a glimpse of ...

18: Semantics, US Soldiers and The Philippines

As we mobilize against the murderous onslaught on Iraq we cannot afford to ignore US military operations in other parts of the world. The Philippines has seen the second biggest US military deployment since Afghanistan. Aziz Choudry writes...

22: Firas Al-Atraqchi: What You Aren't Being Told

Remember all those "intelligence sources" who promised that Iraqis would be cheering as the U.S. and U.K. armies rolled into Basra or Nasiriyah or any major town in southern Iraq? Apparently, in day 7 of the invasion of Iraq, these intelligence ...

26: War Pictures Cause Yellowtimes.Org To Be Shut Down

Somebody doesn't like hearing the truth. Okay, for a second, lets scratch that and choose a slightly less politically charged term. Someone doesn't like to be disputed with alternative views, counterclaims, research and fact. Someone wants you, the ...

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>>

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
