'At war' US justifies drone attacks in Pak as act of 'self-defence' -Global Research
Amid growing discontent in Pakistan over the continuous drone attacks in the ungoverned tribal regions near the Afghan-Pak border, the United States has justified the Central Investigation Agency (CIA) operated missile hits against Al-Qaeda and Taliban extremists citing the right to "self-defence" under international law.

Riyadh meeting to seek ways to push Gulf currency union -Arab News
DUBAI: Central bank governors from four Gulf states will focus on how to push monetary union forward at a meeting in Saudi Arabia starting Tuesday, rather than how to bring back the United Arab Emirates and Oman, analysts say.

Say hello to my little friend: Children put on stage version of Scarface... using popcorn as cocaine and replacing swear words with 'fudge' -Daily Mail

With its vulgar language, extreme violence and frequent drug use, the cult ganster movie Scarface isn't the most obvious choice for a school play.
But that hasn't stopped a group of American schoolchildren from re-enacting the movie on stage - albeit with a few adjustments.
The play, which has become a hit on YouTube, the pint-sized youngsters swear, kill and talk about taking drugs.

A new 'super-Taser' stun gun that fires a 500-volt wireless 'bullet' up to 100ft is being considered for use by UK police forces, the Home Office said today.

Haiti Post-Quake - Devastation, Depravation, Exploitation & Oppression -Rense
Two and half months post-quake, the major media mostly ignore Haiti, the calamitous conditions on the ground, and the growing desperation of millions forced to largely endure on their own - out of sight, mind, the concern of world leaders, and UN, USAID and other aid organizations diverting most of the $700 million + donated to contractors and profiteering NGOs.

I Never Imagined the Town Hall Nazis Would Go Quite So Mad
-Dot Connector

Thirteen years of New Labour rule have made our lives a misery where it matters most to us - on our unswept streets and in our own bin-cluttered backyards.

We all depend on the services provided by local councils, yet these days they are run for the benefit of those who work there, not for the people who pay for them.

Scottish Government Cover up of Hollie Greig Part 6 – Why are Politicians and Media so tight lip -Palestine Telegraph

There is much more to discuss on the Hollie Story but as promised in my last article I though I would break away from the main theme and discuss why all the Politicians and the Media remain so tight lipped? What is it that they fear?


FTAC Watch 30 March 2010 at 13:08  

If you want tight lipped politicians and media then ask either group about the FTAC.

We can only assume that they will.

I tried to post a comment on the Guardian’s ‘comment is free’, but was promptly banned. Clearly free comment does not extend to issues regarding the British government’s political prisoners.
