Today, Veterans for Peace, Catholic Workers, Occupy London and other anti-war activists gathered outside the High Court in London in solidarity with WikiLeaks activist Julain Assange. Julian has spent the past 363 days in England under house arrest without charge. A secret U.S. Grand Jury continues to sit in Virginia pursuing indictments. Leading U.S. Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gringrich has stated "Julian Assange is engaged in terrorism. He should be treated as an enemy combatant." We believe the U.S., British, Swedish and Australian governments are planning to do just that! We are all weary of the war which has now entered its second decade. We need to question the lies of our war making governments, defend the human rights and offer solidarity to those resisters like Julian Assange and Bradley Manning who are being defamed and pursecuted for exposing the nature of these wars in which our governments remain complicit read full story / add a comment

1. Wars have been the most terrifying phenomena people have confronted since the istant past. In our society, millions of Iranians have been living under the ominous shadow of the eight-year war with Iraq. The reminiscences of air raid sirens, damp shelters, overnight power cuts, nameless bodies, severed limbs, mothers who lost their children, children who lost their fathers, famine and hunger, homeless refugees and dozens of other frightening pictures at the back or forefront of our minds, vividly or vaguely, whether like a nightmare or a constant fear, is weighing down on everyone of us. read full story / add a comment

Louay Hussein a former political prisoner in Syria has more than a few doubts about the Syrian National Council. Hussein, a writer and political prisoner from 1984 to 1991, explains: “People who took part in the protests during the first three months were different from the people now,” he says. The original protesters “had political ideas and values and called for liberty and equality. They were for positive action . . . During this stage, I was part of the movement in the street, as an organiser. But others joined the protests. They regard this regime as murderers rather than a tyranny or dictatorship and raise harmful slogans” by calling for external intervention or executing Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

However, he observes that the “council has a lot of financial and diplomatic support. Many EU states give visas to its members but not to us.” read full story / add a comment

Iran claims the explosion was accidental but is there more to this? Full text at link.

A massive explosion at an Iranian military base on Saturday killed Major General Hassan Moghaddam and 16 soldiers of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp. While Tehran dismissed the blast as an accident, indications have already emerged that it was an act of sabotage carried out by Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad.

Moghaddam, who was trained in China and North Korea, has been described in Iran as the architect of the country’s ballistic missile program. The Alghadir base, at which the explosion occurred, housed Iran’s Shehab-3 missiles, which are capable of reaching Israel. Such was the scale of the blast that it was heard 40 kilometres away in Tehran. read full story / add a comment

Jean Shaoul outlines the role that Saudi Arabia is playing in the Imperialist war plans against Iran. The lack of democracy in Saudi Arabia has never bothered the US. Full text at link.

Saudi Arabia’s key role in seeking to destabilise the Ba’athist regime of Bashir Assad has become the centrepiece of an attempt by Washington to cobble together an anti-Iranian alliance, aimed more generally at suppressing the Middle Eastern masses.

Saudi Arabia, the world’s leading oil producer and exporter, has the largest known oil reserves in the world. This has brought untold wealth to the Saudi ruling family and its more than 20,000 princes. The House of Saud keeps power by a system of brutal repression that outlaws all public protests, strikes and expressions of dissent, combined with its championing of an extreme version of Sunni Islam, Wahhabism. read full story / add a comment

Chris Marsden reports on Arab League to suspend Syria and exposes the hypocrisy of some of the despots who voted in favour. Full text at link.

The vote by the Arab League to suspend Syria brings a step closer the possibility of external military intervention into what is already a de facto civil war. A meeting in Cairo Saturday told Syria it will be suspended from the Arab League and face sanctions if it does not end its crackdown on anti-government protesters. A total of 18 countries agreed to the suspension, beginning Wednesday. Only Syria, Lebanon and Yemen voted against, with Iraq abstaining. read full story / add a comment

Michael D is showing his true colours ahead of 2016 proving he does not deserve to be leading commemeorations for that event in history. Isn't it time to start organising an independent committee to commemorate 1916 and to boycott State activities? After all there is little to celebrate for this sorry Republic: a new form of colonial dependancy to international financial capital, a republic that surely does not cherish her children equally, which is a satellite of the UK, a westbrit elite sold out to the Queen and bankers. To sum it up, a republic which is the contrary to everything the 1916 patriots wanted. read full story / add a comment
