Worried about draconian Internet laws? Creeping surveillance? The inability to share with others without being criminalized? The Internet is still a tool of tremendous power, but a deep rot has set in. We have caught it early and we are fighting to stop this rot, but there are other options we can begin exploring to hedge our bets, enhance our current efforts of fighting against corporate monopolies, and eventually, build an Internet of the people, by the people, for the people – big-telecom monopolies not welcomed.

Massacres of civilians by U.S. forces in Vietnam were not rare aberrations but everyday occurrences, an authoritative new book on the subject charges.

 Worse, the massacres were a result of  deliberate Pentagon policies handed down from the very top, often to build false “body count” figures that could lead an officer to promotion. The inflated body counts reported civilian dead as combatant Viet Cong when they were actually women, children and old men.

The massacre of more than 500 civilians at My Lai on March 15, 1968, by the Americal division’s Charlie company, 1st battalion, 20th infantry, has long been portrayed as a solitary episode ordered by Lieutenant William Calley. He was the only one of 28 officers involved who was convicted and although sentenced to life imprisonment was paroled after just 40 months.

[ PIC 22/01/2013 – 09:52 PM ]

NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli government denied receiving an official request from the Palestinian Authority to allow entry of 150 Palestinian refugees from Syria into the West Bank.

Israeli media sources said that PA chief Mahmoud Abbas had tabled a request with the Israeli government to allow the entry of those refugees from Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus, which came under repeated military strikes.

However, an official statement by the office of Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said that Israel did not and would never accept entry of those refugees.

Abbas last month said that he was prepared to receive those refugees, who were caught in the middle of the ongoing internal fighting in Syria, and asked the UN to help in organizing their crossing into the West Bank.

Around one thousand Palestinian refugees were killed in the civil war in that Arab…

January 23, 2013CLIMATE – An unusual event playing out high in the atmosphere above the Arctic Circle is setting the stage for what could be weeks upon weeks of frigid cold across wide swaths of the U.S., having already helped to bring cold and snowy weather to parts of Europe. Forecast high temperatures on Monday, Jan. 21, from the GFS computer model. This phenomenon, known as a “sudden stratospheric warming event,” started on Jan. 6, but is something that is just beginning to have an effect on weather patterns across North America and Europe. While the physics behind sudden stratospheric warming events are complicated, their implications are not: such events are often harbingers of colder weather in North America and Eurasia. The ongoing event favors colder and possibly stormier weather for as long as four to eight weeks after the event, meaning that after a…

JURIST | Jan 22, 2013
meganfairlie[1]Almost immediately after the UN General Assembly voted to give Palestine non-Member Observer State status, the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) at the International Criminal Court (ICC) announced its plan to “consider the legal implications” of Palestine’s upgrade. In theory, OTP’s assessment could lead to a blockbuster result: an ICC investigation into the serious crimes alleged to have been committed on the territory of Palestine, and the subsequent prosecutions of the perpetrators deemed responsible, whether Palestinian or Israeli. In reality it seems more likely that OTP will opt to remain silent about its assessment for some time, and that it ultimately will delay pursuing…

Taliban Response — The Taliban has condemned Prince Harry’s comments, in which he compared fighting in Afghanistan to playing computer games, reports the Daily Telegraph. “To describe the war in Afghanistan as a game demeans anyone – especially a prince, who is supposed to be made of better things,” said Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, adding that Harry’s comments were indicative of the caliber of forces at NATO’s disposal. Sharifullah Kamawal, a member of the Afghan parliament, warned that the comments had handed the Taliban a propaganda victory, reports the Telegraph, and could speed up the withdrawal of British troops from Afghanistan.

Anti-regime protesters have once again taken to the streets in Bahrain’s northeastern island of Sitra despite the ongoing crackdown by regime forces.

Bahraini police forces fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the angry demonstrators who was chanting slogans against the Al Khalifa regime on Tuesday.

The protesters also demanded the immediate release of all political prisoners and voiced their solidarity with jailed political activist and religious figure, Abdul Wahab Hussein.

The regime violence against the protesters comes while Bahraini King bin Issa Al Khalifa has called for “national dialogue” with the opposition parties.

Earlier on Monday, some protesters staged overnight rallies in several villages and towns across the Persian Gulf island as a gesture of defiance against the autocratic regime.

Despite the heavy-handed crackdown on the opposition across the Persian Gulf state, the protesters continue demonstrations against the Al Khalifa regime.

The protesters say they will…

Palestinian woman killed by Israeli fire in West Bank

Press TV

A Palestinian woman has been killed after being shot by Israeli military forces in the southern West Bank, Palestinian medical sources say.

The 21-year-old woman, identified as Lubna Hanash, was shot in the face by Israeli troops who got out of a civilian car.

The shooting took place outside a college near a refugee camp about eight kilometers north of the city of al-Khalil (Hebron).

Israel has set up hundreds of checkpoints in the West Bank and the Israeli forces often launch attacks on the Palestinians living in the territory from these checkpoints.

This comes as on January 18 Israeli soldiers shot and wounded another Palestinian youth near the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Israeli security forces seriously wounded a 15-year-old Palestinian boy during a protest in the Aida refugee camp, north of Bethlehem.

The teenager was hit in…

Part I

by Sadeq Khanafer, Hussein Mallah, source

Almost a year after the American withdrawal from Iraq, several political and security crises took place. Perhaps the most dangerous are those currently taking place in both the Western and Northern provinces. The troubles are being more sectarian, which threaten re-pushing the country toward riot and divisions, and aim at suppressing the emerging Iraqi power both at political and social levels.

To shed light on the secret plans prepared for Iraq and later to other regional countries, we display -in a three-part report- this plan from A to Z.

The Role and Position of Iraq

The Republic of Iraq is one of the West Asian countries overlooking the Gulf area. Its borders distribute as follows: Kuwait and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the South, Turkey to the North, Syria and Jordan to the West, and Iran to the East. Its total…

The controversy about the efficiency and necessity of vaccines is well known. While conventional medicine advocates the use of vaccines, it also ignores the variety of toxic substances that vaccines contain and compromise the immunological responses. At the same time that medical authorities push for compulsory vaccinations, new data proves that these artificial immunization strategies simply do not work as they are supposed to. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that undervaccinated children have better health, as it is indicated by the frequency of outpatient and emergency hospital visits.

The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of alternative immunization schedules, which promote “a spacing out, a delaying, or a forgoing of at least some vaccines” against all official guidelines from institutions, such as the American Academy of Family Physicians, The American…

No eruptive activity at the surface has occurred so far, and the official alert level of the volcano remains at “Yellow,” but with “Special Attention.” Until 09:56 local time (12:56 GMT) on 22 Jan, seismic activity had remained at low levels, both in occurrence of earthquakes, the energy released and the signal intensity of tremor associated with fluid movements inside the volcano. Then, at that time, there was a significant long-period (LP) earthquake and 3 hours later, shallow lower amplitude events started to occur.  At 13:20 local time, another LP earthquake of relatively strong intensity occurred and was followed by a seismic swarm with mostly long period events that continued for 20 minutes. No surface changes, no glow, and no thermal hot spot on MODIS data accompany this process for the…

Five major trade unions in the Galicia region of the Spanish state have announced their support for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. Below is an English translation of the statement they released on January 9.

Manifesto of the Galician trade unions supporting the global movement for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel

In the words of Nelson Mandela, the Palestinian struggle for justice became “the greatest moral issue of our time”. The brutal Israeli siege on Gaza represents nowadays the most critical and urgent of all Israeli injustices against the Palestinian people in the form of endless violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.

Palestinian civil society, through the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel addressed to people of conscience and all organizations of civil…

The Syrian Army has managed to drive foreign-backed militants out of different locations in Syria.

The militants were repelled in the northern city of Aleppo and a suburb of Damascus on Wednesday.

The Syrian forces managed to destroy several militant bases in Aleppo and carried out operations against a number of militants’ hideouts around the capital.

Earlier in the day, the Syrian Foreign Ministry called on the United Nations to condemn the terrorist attacks across the country, blaming the foreign-sponsored militants for the violence in the Arab country.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants fighting the Syrian government are foreign nationals.

The parliament of Spain’s northeastern region of Catalonia has approved a declaration of the region’s sovereignty as a major step towards its independence from Spain.

The non-binding resolution was passed on Wednesday by 85 votes in favor, 41 against, and two abstentions, the Associated Press reported.

The declaration, which states that the people of Catalonia have a democratic right to decide on their sovereignty, sets up a potential showdown with the central government in Madrid.

Catalonia, one of the most developed regions in Spain, already enjoys a wide degree of autonomy, but the country’s economic crisis has fuelled Catalan nationalism.

Growing Catalan separatism is a huge challenge for Spain’s conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who is trying to avoid getting bailed out by its European Union neighbors.

Rajoy says a referendum on secession is unconstitutional and hurts all Spaniards, who are already suffering in a recession with the unemployment…

The House voted on legislation Wednesday that will raise the debt ceiling for three months and delay a US default. Even though this is just a short term fix, the Obama administration said it supports it.

The legislation prevented a devastating default of US debt and payments next month and instead give Congress three more months to come up with an agreement on the budget, taxes, spending and the deficit. The move would cause the congressional budget battles to once again take place – but this time in March.

The legislation contains a “no budget, no pay” segment that ensures both House and Senate members will no longer receive their paychecks if a budget isn’t agreed upon by April 15, putting further pressure on legislators to come up with a plan. Although President Obama prefers a long-term solution and said incremental increases in the debt ceiling ultimately harm the…
