Debate with the Restart the War Coalition

As you well know, Blair was a poodle, a mere middle manager and public relations officer for conglomerate of vested corporate and military interests. His electoral success was engineered and the alternative, the Tories, hardly appealing to most informed citizens. So which policies did Labour Supporters approve of? Deregulating gambling? Outsourcing industry? Dumbing down our kids and creating a generation of misfits. Expanding surveillance? Invading foreign countries? Lying about the real reasons for war? ...

“Vision, courage and compassion”

Thanks for admitting the obvious... They didn't do it for oil, but oil was part of it. The real standoff will be between China and US with Iran acting as a proxy. No doubt, you'll be supporting gay liberation as an excuse for war. Besides what evidence do you have that Blair and his ilk are vaguely interested in real democracy? What kind of debates has his party had on Iraq or any other substantive matters? All they had were sermons from the party's spinmeisters and the toleration of a few "maverick" ...

Kelly Conspiracy Daily

We should be more concerned about "conspiracy theory labelling", a tendency to dismiss all evidence against the neoliberal elite as pathological wild conjecture. NewLabour apologists love to consider themselves superior to all those atomised losers who fail to swallow their propaganda. In a world of mass deception about almost anything, like the probability of winning the national lottery or the real motives for the invasion of Iraq (oil, greed etc..), it's inevitable many of us will challenge orthodoxy...

The Kelly Affair: Anatomy of a conspiracy theory

Finally Tony Blair reveals his side of the feud with Gordon Brown

Blair should be tried and sentenced for his role in the invasion and occupation of oil-rich Iraq and his complete obfuscation about the real reasons for war. It had nothing to do with human rights or deposing evil dictators. If Saddam Hussein didn't exist, Blair's handlers would have had to invent him, well they practically did. Only one year after Abdul Qassim, former leader of Iraq, overthrew the British-installed Monarchy, a young officer Saddam Hussein tried to attempt to his life but failed.... Very...

Footnote to Further Thoughts About Blair Rage

Wow, totally brainwashed!! Independence of a bunch of bankers (i.e. transferring power away from a nominally democratically elected politician). Completing John Major's Peace Process in Northern Ireland. Bombing the former Yugoslavia and fomenting ethnic hatred by blaming one side in 10 year long civil war. Overseeing a widening rich-poor gap, encouraging welfare dependence the influx of foreign workers, effectively deskilling a generation of young Brits. I'm not an expert on Sierra Leone, so won;t comment ...

That “Blair is a Liar” Nonsense

Thanks for reminding us most Labour MPs, even most so-called Rebels, succumbed to unpardonable delusion and selective amnesia regarding one of the major crises of our times, energy security. Blair LIED because he failed to admit the real reasons for war. It is of little more than academic importance whether Iraq had WMDs or not. The US, Israel, the UK, France, Russia, China, Pakistan, India, Brazil, Argentina and probably Iran all have nuclear weapons. Any leader of an oil-rich country would seek to...

Shoot-'em-ups are good for you, say researchers

Nonsense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who runs the Independent and who funds research in our universities? The other day we had a piece promoting (gun-toting) Angelina Jolie's charity work. Then we have John Rentoul's pathetic idolatry of a war criminal. Now a piece claiming that fantasising violence 4-6 hours a day is somehow good for you. I'm wise enough to know the arguments of first person shooter addicts off by heart (Me, I'd never hurt a fly, I find these games "cathartic", an adjective repeated ad infinitum in...

Restrepo: Is this the greatest war film ever?

The Independent claims to represent the progressive environmentally conscious left, embracing recent cultural trends and decrying traditional cultural values. However, if progress means anything, it means liberating ourselves of the darker violent side of humanity that evolved as a survival extinct when hunting was a way of life and we were presented daily with very real natural predators. Yet Independent journalists portray virtual violence, whether in first-person shooter games, paintball, laser quest or ...
