Bangladeshi Bloggers

I have been in touch with a few Bangladeshi Bloggers... who recently had their first meeting...

Rezwan's excellent Blog 'Third World View' is really good for anyone interested in Bangladesh...

Lots of interesting material about Islam and terrorism, including a link to an article by my friend David Montero... who is currently in Pakistan covering the Earthquake recovery for Christian Science Monitor.

How Extremism Came to Bangladesh

... a very resonable man

Interview with David Icke

"You've said some of these interdimensionals masquerade as mere mortals to occupy powerful positions on our planet. Can you recognise them simply by looking at them?
It is often possible if you know what to look for - especially by the eyes. I once had an extraordinary experience with former prime minister Ted Heath. Both of his eyes, including the whites, turned jet black and I seemed to be looking into two black holes. This happened years before I got into the subjects I write about today. But when I began to meet people all over the world who told me of having the experience of seeing people's eyes turn black I knew exactly what they meant.

"Any well-known sports people you suspect of being not of this world?Having seen him play in the 60s at the peak of his powers, there is no way George Best was human!"

"The Vatican is said to be in possession of a communiqué from aliens, first given to the children of Fatima. What do you suspect the message says?Don't know, don't care, but if the Roman Church is involved there is bound to be a scam going on. It is the Church of Babylon relocated, as I reveal in detail in one of my books"


cheney update

``You can talk about all of the other conditions that exist at the time but that's the bottom line and - it was not Harry's fault,'' he said. ``You can't blame anybody else. I'm the guy who pulled the trigger and shot my friend.''
Cheney was using No. 7 shot from a 28-gauge shotgun. Shotgun pellets typically are made of steel or lead; the pellets in No. 7 shot are just under one-tenth of an inch in diameter.

The pellet that traveled to Whittington's heart was either touching or embedded in the heart muscle near the top chambers, called the atria, officials said. "

pointless coercion

"the report also concludes that the efforts of the police to interrupt the supply of drugs into Britain has been ineffective and has had little or no impact on reducing harms. It goes on to say that there is no causal link between the availability and incidence. Indeed, prices and incidence often fall and rise at the same time. This is a conclusion that torpedoes a central tenet of current policy."

Meanwhile someone doesn´t like to even hear about gays [thanks benji]


chavez to tony: 'fuck off please'


A Sweden free of fossil fuels would give us enormous advantages, not least by reducing the impact from fluctuations in oil prices. The price of oil has tripled since 1996! Old oil price records are now being beaten at a rapid rate.

The FDD vs. Me

The Foundation for the Defence of Democracies took a dim view of some comments on my blog and asked me to remove them... it's an interesting debate and an insight in to 'freedom and democracy'...

last days of rome

this telegraph has got the leaked memos, very very amusin'.. second memo to blair "bush is grateful, has noted he is getting flak", and, as was recognised, "has to manage [sic] a press, parliament and public opinion that is very different than anything in the states"


on a related note-

With $50bn already authorised, the new request would take the total of supplemental military spending to $120bn for 2006.

In a separate move, the administration will ask for a 5 per cent increase in the Pentagon's budget. This budget request includes more than $80bn to be spent on weapons systems and means the annual total budget request for the Pentagon will be $439.3bn.

gearing up for (yet more!) murder

Mr Whitman said the extra $70bn is on top of $320bn spent since 2001 to fund military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said the cost of US military operations - not including the purchase of new equipment - was running at $4.5bn a month in Iraq and $800m in Afghanistan.

an imperial economy depends on drawing wealth from abroad, without any reciprocity..

"still I believe in utopia, just no closer on a way to get there. To her question, I don´t want adventures to stop, everything must be more exciting

war is inevitable

Bush has no intention of occupying Iran. Rather, the goal is to destroy major weapons-sites, destabilize the regime, and occupy a sliver of land on the Iraqi border that contains 90% of Iran's oil wealth. [...] But, that will have to wait. For now, the administration must prevent the incipient Iran bourse (oil-exchange) from opening in March and precipitating a global sell-off of the debt-ridden dollar. There have many fine articles written about the proposed "euro-based" bourse and the devastating effects it will have on the greenback. The best of these are "Petrodollar Warfare: Oil, Iraq and the Future of the Dollar" by William R. Clark, and "The Proposed Oil Bourse" by Krassimir Petrov, Ph.D.

The bottom line on the bourse is this; the dollar is underwritten by a national debt that now exceeds $8 trillion dollars and trade deficits that surpass $600 billion per year. That means that the greenback is the greatest swindle in the history of mankind.


In a recent article by Zolton Grossman, "Khuzestan; the First Front in the War on Iran?", Grossman cites the Beirut Daily Star which predicts that the "first step taken by an invading force would be to occupy Iran's oil-rich Khuzestan Province, securing the sensitive Straits of Hormuz and cutting off the Iranian military's oil supply, forcing it to depend on its limited stocks."


On January 28, 2006, Iranian officials announced that they would "hand over evidence that proved British involvement in bombings in the southern city of Ahvaz earlier in the week" that killed eight civilians and wounded 46 others. This was just one of the many bombings, incitements, and demonstrations that have taken place in Khuzestan in the last year that suggest foreign intervention. The action is strikingly similar to the 2 British commandoes who were apprehended in Basra a few months ago dressed as Arabs with a truckload of explosives during the week of religious festival.

:-) more amusing than the battered mars bar! thanks, britaineers!


Russians seemingly detest holding depreciating dollars, for they have recently found a new religion with gold: their central bank is diversifying out of dollars and accumulating gold. Russians have also revived their nationalism; if embracing the Euro will stab the Americans, they will gladly do it and smugly watch the Americans bleed.

won't we all!!! bless the russki

reaping what you sow

"Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh (May 19, 1882 - March 4, 1967) was prime minister of Iran from 1951 to 1953. Mossadegh quickly implemented more socialist reforms. Iran's centuries old feudal agriculture sector was abolished, and replaced with a system of collective farming and government land ownership.

The government of Britain had grown increasingly distressed over Mossadegh's reforms and were especially bitter over the loss of their control on the Iranian oil industry. Despite Mossadegh's repeated attempts to negotiate a reasonable settlement with them they refused outright the same terms, and later [asserted] total control over Iranian oil.

After negotiations for higher oil royalties failed, on March 15, 1951 the Iranian parliament (the Majlis) voted to nationalize Iran's oil industry and seize control of the British-owned and operated Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC).

Unable to resolve the issue singlehandedly due to its post second world war problems, Britain looked towards the United States to settle the issue. The United States was falsely informed that Mossadegh was increasingly turning towards communism and was moving Iran towards the Soviet sphere at a time of high cold war fears.

Acting on the fears created by Britain the United States and Britain began to publicly denounce Mossadegh's policies for Iran as harmful to the country.

In October of 1952, Mossadegh declared that Britain was "an enemy," and cut all diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom. In November and December 1952, British intelligence officials suggested to American intelligence that the prime minister should be ousted. The new US administration under Dwight Eisenhower and the British government under Winston Churchill agreed to work together toward Mossadegh's removal.

When the Iranian revolution occurred in 1979, the overthrow of Mossadegh was used as a rallying point in anti-US protests. To this day, Mossadegh's image in Iran is mixed. His secularism and western manners have made official government praise mild at best in the now fundamentalist theocratic state. Yet many others still view him as a victim of US aggression."

By the way - Iran's nuclear programme is not an "imminent threat," the head of the UN nuclear watchdog said on Thursday.

earth definetely not warming up!!!

University of Queensland scientists say they were shocked by the reef's condition and are concerned the entire reef may be at risk of destruction from global warming.

Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg said most of the reefs they saw were completely bleached. "Going down to 10 metres, every piece of coral was a glowing white colour - all that brown colour had disappeared and that was surprising for us," he said.

erm.. i was gonna scuba dive that reef.. nevermind.. i'll get a bigmac instead..

In 1998 scientists estimated that 16 per cent of the world’s corals were destroyed by high water temperatures.


too much!!

Nigeria Chosen To Host 2008 Genocides

bush state of union speech: america is addicted to oil


For a part of this past century, there were some constraints on our capacity for arbitrary military action - what you might call the inhibitions of the Cold War - but with the collapse of the Soviet Union, we've acquired a headier sense of what we can get away with.

Our overriding purpose, from the beginning right through to the present day, has been world domination - that is, to build and maintain the capacity to coerce everybody else on the planet..

fat bicmacs ruling se world.. der fuehrer would spin in his grave!

Yet that war was nothing compared to the effects of twenty years of sanctions, from 1975 to 1995, which brought the Vietnamese people - a people who had proven to be invincible when threatened by physical force on their own land - down to such dire poverty that they were taking to open boats in stormy seas, and drowning, to get to a refugee camp in Hong Kong, a place no one in his or her right mind would want to be.

And think of whom we admire most: the Rockefellers and Morgans, the Bill Gateses and Donald Trumps. Would any moral person accumulate a billion dollars when there are 10 million infants dying of starvation every year? Is that the best thing you can find to do with your time?

kwite!! gates-cunt!

mock hanging included??

International activists and lawyers involved in the defence of Saddam Hussein say they will hold a mock trial of George Bush, the US president, and the British and Israeli prime ministers for alleged war crimes committed in Iraq and the Palestinian territories.
