Rudd and Bush -- leading puppets image The Failure of Nations peptide, Saturday, Mar 29 2008, 8:36pm
Democracy is majority rule via elected REPRESENTATION. Democracy only exists in societies where people are able to make INFORMED decisions. What then of societies where governments intentionally obfuscate, withhold information or brazenly LIE to their populations? Clearly whatever these social systems claim to be, they are NOT democracies! (story and 1 image)

text Written in the 'sky' cleaves, Wednesday, Mar 26 2008, 9:44pm
Hashim Thaci, ‘PM’ of the illegitimate ‘nation/pretend state/pipeline corridor,’ Kosovo, is known to Interpol and most police agencies in Europe as an organised crime figure – a reputation he earned from his long standing interests in drug smuggling, sex slavery, arms dealing and other sordid criminal activities. Thaci is also a cold-blooded murderer and is therefore the perfect choice for America to install as ‘leader’ of the stolen Serbian province of Kosovo – some things you just can’t hide, Uncle!

I do not wish to be too harsh in my criticisms of invaded peoples, their plight is understandable; however, there are no excuses for defeatist weeping – tears do not destroy an enemy!

nukemerica.jpg image Nuclear strike Imminent major mitchell, Saturday, Mar 22 2008, 9:21pm
Current tensions in world affairs make a nuclear strike in the very near future almost a certainty. The current lopsided state of play favours the NATO/US alliance, as is evident with NATO’s accelerating expansionist policies. Absorbing smaller nations, especially those formerly under Soviet influence, is the latest tactic of aggression against Russia, Serbia and to a lesser extent China. (story and 1 image)

operaface.jpg image A faint glow on the horizon peptide, Sunday, Mar 16 2008, 10:19pm
China’s inaction after the deliberate bombing of its Embassy in Belgrade by US president, Bill Clinton in 1999 – the year WWIII actually began – has invited further assaults on Chinese sovereignty by America. However, the latest assault utilises a proxy to provoke political unrest and destabilise the ethnically imbalanced Tibetan region. A formula that worked to perfection most recently in Kosovo!

text Germany and Israel form new alliance quin, Saturday, Mar 15 2008, 8:51am
Fresh from its very active role in the destruction of Yugoslavia and its involvement with rebel forces in the Serbian province of Kosovo, Germany now pipes a very familiar tune in the Middle East. In what appears to be a very odd historical twist, fascist Germany now pledges allegiance to Nazi Israel – but is anyone really surprised? (story and 1 comment)

Caught myself roaming the conservative side of my personality one afternoon – confronting the effects of rigorous toilet training is fascinating! The strangest thoughts began to overwhelm me but they were somehow alluring, intoxicating in a distinctively pathological way, so I let them flow – can YOU hear the sound of one jackboot marching?

'Acceptable' collateral damage image Squinting at the Sun gan, Friday, Mar 14 2008, 8:11pm
The efforts of America and its allies to demonise people and nations that assert their sovereignty and rights are often foiled by poignant reminders of reality. Truth jolts us back into stark reality and forces us to face our collective humanity. (story and 1 image)

text Kevin Rudd: ask any prancer! dingo, Thursday, Mar 13 2008, 10:50pm
The new Australian PM is proving himself to be a major letdown, disappointment, non-event; a man of the status quo UNABLE TO HANDLE THE BIG ISSUES! A man defined and managed by big business, especially the financial and mining sectors, the two sectors responsible for wreaking havoc on the economy and environment! (story and 1 comment)

President Jose Ramos-Horta image Ramos-Horta and a grain of salt Kingfisher, Wednesday, Mar 12 2008, 9:52pm
Today’s international newswire is alive with the scripted account of the ‘gunman who shot the president;’ from Ramos-Horta’s own mouth no less! Surely that should convince everyone -- the Australians and Americans are hoping. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text Balkans at crisis point dusan, Monday, Mar 10 2008, 10:35pm
Washington and its western allies are shitting themselves over the prospect of Serbia asserting its inalienable right over its territories after the formation of a new Serbian government. Whether the west chooses to label Serbs nationalists, liberals, hardliners or brigands is irrelevant – Serbs will never give up Kosovo! Try and understand it is impossible to give up what makes you what you are! Even the thought of losing Kosovo fills Serbs with shame and intolerable humiliation.

Hitler strikes a pose image Evil empires and disturbed dictators goran, Wednesday, Feb 27 2008, 11:45am
This portrait of Hitler speaks volumes; the hysterically effeminate representation was a personal favourite of Hitler’s – much to the consternation of his propaganda/media advisers. The German dictator and mass murderer clearly reveals his aberrant personality by allowing this obviously queer and screamingly effeminate representation to be shown in public. [Hitler’s sexuality is known to have been extremely ‘problematic’ – western propaganda notwithstanding.] (story and 2 images)

text Australian government’s infantile dependence nano, Saturday, Feb 23 2008, 9:13pm
It seems America is desperate to get Oz on board with its more theological than technological missile defence shield. However, Americans always give the game away with overkill – the flight manual in Arabic conveniently left at Boston airport (9/11) followed by US military supplied (oops) anthrax letters are notable examples of American (idiot) overkill.

The Dili embrace: Kevin Rdd and Xanana Gusmao image The Australian Position finch, Tuesday, Feb 19 2008, 12:26pm
In contrast to the Australian Foreign Minister’s ‘yezz boss’ attitude to the Americans, Helen Clark, New Zealand PM, has joined other nations in not formally recognising the illegal secession of Kosovo. Notwithstanding Smith’s early show of subservience we are about to be treated to an even greater exhibition of servility from the new Rudd Labor government! The Australian Foreign Minister, Stephen Smith, is currently rummaging through his wardrobe looking for his ornate, formal dress kneepads in preparation for the visit of the American Defence Secretary, Robert Gates!

text Kosovo calamity undermines Europe’s security nano, Saturday, Feb 16 2008, 9:56am
Most of us are familiar with the almost universally known adage, “a million wrongs do not make a right;” we are also familiar with the concept of shared criminality, most popularly depicted as a mafia leader demanding that every member of his group put a bullet into the body of a victim. In this way the most sordid and heinous of all criminal bonds is forged; all participants share in the guilt of murder! (story and 3 comments)

text Ramos-Horta: coma of convenience gan, Wednesday, Feb 13 2008, 10:13pm
Australia’s involvement in the assassination of Major Alfredo Reinado is indicated – according to some analysts -- by the prolonged induced coma of Jose Ramos-Horta. The president of Timor-Leste is perhaps the only person able to supply crucial information regarding events leading to the death of Major Reinado and his own wounding, YET an odd reluctance to obtain accurate information is becoming evident, particularly from the Australians, America’s proxy in the region!

text Timor-Leste: a broader view required dingo, Sunday, Feb 10 2008, 8:39pm
Labor PM, Kevin Rudd has announced his support for Morris Iemma’s huge energy infrastructure sell-off in NSW, a move that threatens huge job losses, quality control standards and price rises for services. But why should Rudd care, it was Rudd who stated that politics in today’s Australia is no longer a matter of ideology? Facility and expedition are the order of the day – but for whom? Big business does not place governments in power to have their interests thwarted, so it's full steam ahead for vested interests and a final goodbye to the last vestiges of the ALP as a people's party – rest in peace the once proud Labor movement of Australia!

text Torture ‘logic’ USA gan, Wednesday, Feb 6 2008, 8:05am
This short piece is principally directed at Americans, as most people of the free world – approx. 99.99% of the planet’s population, understand torture as TORTURE! Torture remains illegal under international law but America has flouted international law and convention on so many occasions it is no surprise it attempts to justify the use of TORTURE today.

Pollycarpus Priyanto, convicted image Asian high court shows the way Kingfisher, Friday, Jan 25 2008, 8:32am
Formerly listed as the most corrupt nation in the world, Indonesia is now demonstrating to a thoroughly corrupt American judiciary and administration that the LAW must be observed and allowed to function without interference from the State; the world’s most corrupt nations now seem to emanate from the West! We refer to the flagrant flouting of international law and convention in relation to illegal detention, pre-emptive warfare, torture, and disregard of the territorial integrity of sovereign nations. YES, with over one million civilian deaths to its ‘credit’ America is beyond dispute as the world’s leading terrorist and criminal State followed closely by the dominant nations of NATO!
