PUBLIC ADDRESS 13/10/04 - Weird Wars

Weird War | Oct 13, 2004 09:49
Russell Brown's Hard News

The news that during the occupation that followed the war to stop weapons technology falling into the wrong hands, equipment and materials that could be used to make nuclear weapons have been steadily vanishing would seem to be taking irony just a bit too far...

Jolisa Gracewood in New Haven

I can't get enough of these Presidential debates. It's like Monday night football – er, Super Twelve -- for debate geeks. Or for the whole world. There we all are, sitting on the couch with a beer in hand, yelling at the TV: "Kick it into touch!" "Hollywood!" "Get up...

During the 1987 election campaign, when electoral reform was a hot issue, Prime Minister David Lange promised to have a referendum on the electoral system... More>>


Digitl: Infrastructure Commission wants digital strategy
Earlier this month Te Waihanga, New Zealand’s infrastructure commission, tabled its first Infrastructure Strategy: Rautaki Hanganga o Aotearoa. Te Waihanga describes its document as a road map for a thriving New Zealand... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>
