Wilkerson: We can bomb Iran for 70 days around the clock

RussiaTV | March 18, 2010 - Meanwhile, as the U.S. is pushing for sanctions to hinder Iran's nuclear programme, reports say Washington is already gearing up for an attack. A Scottish newspaper, The Sunday Herald, says hundreds of powerful bunker-buster bombs are being shipped to a military base on the British Garcia island, in the Indian Ocean. It was also used by the U.S. for strikes against Iraq during the 1993 and 2003 Gulf wars. Some experts say American bombers would be capable of destroying around ten thousand targets in Iran, in just a few hours. But former chief of staff to Colin Powell, Lawrence Wilkerson, says that any action would spell disaster for the U.S. military machine.

Ogaden, The Hidden War.

SaveOgaden | Feb 2010

As a part of this blogging project, I was asking some friends of mine who I know are very active when it comes to issues of injustice. One of my good friends has many topics of interest (which I will slowly incorporate into my blogs), but the first one she spoke about was the Ogaden region of Ethiopia.

Some info from my friend: “More death, more tortures, rapes and body mutilation has been happening here than it has in Darfur. The Ogaden people are of Somali origin who reside in Ethiopia because the European colonial “awarded” that part of Somalia to the Ethiopians. When Somalia had government they tried to get back the land numerous times, however the Ethiopians always had the support of the west. Ethiopia, as you know, as never been colonialist mainly because it adopted Christianity way before many Western countries.”

How the Ogadenis Narrate their True History and the Present Troubles of Ogaden

One of the world´s most troublesome regions is Ogaden. Along with Darfur, Ogaden is one of the two places in the world whereby deliberate genocide was extensively practiced in the 3rd millennium. Ogaden, compared to Darfur, helps us draw several conclusions, due to the fact that both genocides have not drawn a crystal clear reaction and punishment.

Leaving the Darfur and Ogaden genocides unpunished, and executing Saddam Hussein is a shameful bias that irreversibly tarnishes the international community´s image. Despite his monstrous tyranny, Saddam Hussein did not perpetrate the acts carried out in Darfur by Al Bashir´s Pan-Arabist pestilence and in Ogaden by Meles Zenawi´s Ethiopianist cholera.

Universities across the globe mark Israeli Apartheid Week


Haaretz | 01/03/2010 - LONDON, A filmmaker, anthropologist and economic researcher are among those headlining events marking what pro-Palestinian organizers have declared as "Israeli Apartheid Week" - and all three speakers are Israeli.

University campuses in more than 40 cities around the world are marking the week with lectures, films, multimedia events, cultural performances and demonstrations.

Since they were first launched in 2005, the events have become some of "the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar," according to its organizers.



Its aim, they state on their Web site, is to "contribute to this chorus of international opposition to Israeli apartheid and to bolster support for the boycotts, divestments and sanctions (BDS) campaign."

Will U.S. gets into the business of imposing sanctions against television stations deemed hostile?

Arabs reject U.S. crackdown on Arab satellite TV

Posted By Marc Lynch

A meeting of Arab Information Ministers at the Arab League in Cairo yesterday rejected a Congressional resolution calling for sanctions against Arab satellite television stations which allegedly incite terrorism or promote


anti-Americanism. It would be pretty pathetic that the Arab League -- the Arab League!! -- is taking a stronger position in favor of media freedoms than the U.S. Congress. But don't worry --- leading Arab states still seem quite keen to find their own Arab ways to repress and control the media.


The Congressional resolution (H.R.2278), which passed 395-3 in December (and hopefully will die in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee) is a perfect example of mindless grandstanding which pleases domestic audiences while hurting American interests in the Arab world.

'Israelis no longer allowed in Dubai after Hamas hit'
