Premier Peter Beattie is calling on the indigenous leaders of Palm Island, especially the Chair of the Council and the councillors, to show strong leadership in the aftermath of Friday's riot.

Ken's Comment: Perhaps this is a result of so many others dying in watchouses.... and it began for me back when my best friend from state school "committed suicide" in the sixties.

(PNEWS) We Reap What We Sow

But, maybe after-all, this is what the Democrats do reap for themselves for being stupid. After the betrayals of the Clinton administration Democrats again believed in the anti-progressive promises of John Kerry because he was supposed to be a "lesser evil," even though those less evil often disappoint us too. Nader kept trying to tell us and we didn't want to listen.

VIOLATIONS: Air Strikes against Villages/ IDP Crisis in Batee Ilied region.

On 16 - 18 November 2004, the Indonesian Air Force continuously attacked with US-made warplanes, Bronco OV-10, suspected GAM bases in Batee Ilied region. 9 persons, 2 of them GAM guerillas, are reported to have been killed as the result of the randomly air-launched grenade assaults. People in the villages in the region had to flee from the area leaving their farm crops, chickens, goats and all their belongings while they were still celebrating the Ied Festival after Ramadhan. They have sought refuge in neighbouring villages, as they fear for their lives if they move further out from the area as the TNI, using the militias as informers, might suspect them of being GAM supporters.

[PNEWS] POINTER: Worse than Hitler

It looks as though the U.S. war on Iraq is increasingly being read as an imperialist grab in which the killing of Iraqis is identified with previous late colonialist expansion efforts -- running against the tides of history?

Mainstream media speak as if Fallujah were populated only by foreign "insurgents". In fact, women and children are being slaughtered in our name.

(IPCUSA) 'Supporting the troops'?

Submitted by Editor on Fri, 26/11/2004 - 00:11

During the recent election campaign, it has been a liberal mantra that they "support the troops" while opposing the war in Iraq. Just what does supporting the troops mean -- other than just a throwaway line to escape the political consequences of a long history of being anti-military?

(IPCUSA) Bush Inauguration: Symbolism for a Police State

"Everything has changed since 9/11, so there is a different context in which this inauguration is being planned," Terrance W. Gainer, chief of the U.S. Capitol Police, told the Washington Post.

Dear Colleague:

Those who favor abortion "rights" claim to be pro-choice, but this is merely a semantic ploy intended to dupe the unwary. For what the pro-abortion movement calls "reproductive freedom" in fact means forcing people and private institutions to fund and perform abortions. This is why, in a country where abortion is legal up to the point of birth, the abortionists at NARAL grudgingly give America a "D" grade. The mind balks at what it would take to earn an "A": Child sacrifice?
