Here is a reposting from www.mirror-world.ru that claims to speak on behalf of the Iraq1 resistance. Seems genereally consistant with western reports yet told from a pro resistance stance and more extensive. Fred
Fahrenheit 9/11 wins most prestigious award at Cannes, among other compliments...I don't care what anyone says, I've observed what he's had to sacrifice to have many voices heard, and I know what it's like to stand up for what you believe in, the risks you take... ...coming soon...to a theatre...

I shared these feelings with Palestinians. Now, I think I understand the meaning of real solidarity, a completely different kind of solidarity, than we all had planned in a different world, where people are free and responsible for themselves.
"...Both MK-ULTRA and ARTICHOKE grew out of "Operation Paperclip," in which Nazi scientists were smuggled into the U.S. to provide the government with information on everything from rocket science to germ warfare to torture and interrogation techniques..."
A bit of history occurred the end of April and early May. Three national transgender or gender-diverse civil rights organizations lobbied Capitol Hill simultaneously and, for the first time, all lobbied for the same issues. In addition, yet another rejuvenated national group conducted its first organized protest in years, and still another organization conducted a march to the Viet Nam Veterans’ Memorial, and conducted a historic wreath laying ceremony.
The result I most want to see from my campaign is for the people of Ireland, both young and old, to know that this country belongs to them, and not the politicians. The country is ours to change, and it can be done. We can change the system and every vote away from the main political parties is a vote for a bright and democratic future. Send a clear message to our Government on June 11th. Either they deliver on their election promises or they are out!
LET'S USE THESE NETWORKS TO GET THE WORD OUT. TELL FOLKS TO CONTACT the attorneys (info below) so they can send them forms to complete. NOW is the time to do it since they will only have until JUNE 22nd to return the forms.
That a movie is reportedly a “spiritual experience” for so many of the faithful is evidence of a remarkable transubstantiation of those customary and socially embedded practices of Christian faith into the misty realm of a blockbuster movie. What moviegoer response to The Passion of The Christ testifies to is a sort of religious “re-enchantment” that happens through the marketing of religious symbols, myths, vocabularies, and beliefs...all for the price of a theater ticket and a officially licensed Passion coffe mug.
The US military is systematically hiding all info on women Iraqi prisoners who were either raped, tortured or beaten in the Abu Ghuraib concentration camp run by the US military in Iraq. During the release of 100s of prisoners, no journalists were allowed to interview any of the released prisoners. "Journalists were forbidden from talking to the women ..."
Bilderberg, Franc masoneria, Illuminati, Comision Trilateral, Consejo de Relaciones Exteriores (CFR), IFRI, Club de Roma, Aspen Institute....toda una red mundial muy bien organizada de personas e instituciones que conforman el gobierno mundial oculto, con una filosofia y valores deshumanizantes, estilo Big Brothers y al mas puro estilo de una dictadura mundial (democra-dura) real, sin que nadie se de cuenta...visite www.syti.net/ES ...lea, reflexione, verifique y actue (actuemos)!!!
The roots of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal lie not in the criminal inclinations of a few Army reservists but in a decision, approved last year by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, to expand a highly secret operation
Electronic newswires can be irrelevant. They will ultimately lie about the facts, then not lie about the facts to refute claims, to then grandstand disinformation in response to the rest of the world's queries.
This year some 3,000 children will be diagnosed with brain cancer in America. This is a virtual death sentence for the children if treated with orthodox treatment, radiation therapy. My interview with Dr. Burzynski documents the FDA’s 20 some year suppression of his treatment Antineoplastons. It’s the same old story of the $$greeeeed$$ obsessed pharmaceutical companies controlling American medicine.
Today (5/24/04)on www.democracynow.org U.S. staff sargent recently back from Iraq calls marine actions genocide. Says Iraqis have every right to be angry and hve every right to fight back. "I would." This is an incredible interview/report. Don't miss it. Share it.
As of now, at least 801 U.S. GI’s have died in Iraq. Of course countless Iraqis have lost their lives, perhaps 2 million if we count the effects of U.S./U.K. imposed sanctions. Remember the old war movies where the commanders would of speak “softening the enemy” before an attack? Is that not why all those Iraqi children were condemned by denying their country food, medicine, and the means to repair water treatment facilities destroyed in the first “gulf war?” Talk about crimes against humanity?
We must stop this nightmare. The anti-war movement in our country is a broad collection of perspectives and represents diverse aspirations. That is as it should be. But we all have the dire need to defeat the insanity of the neocon agenda of world domination at any cost. Regardless of our differences, it is clearly imperative that we hit the streets ASAP. Please plan, if you have not already, to attend the anti-war march in DC this June 5th. Information on the march, flyers, etc. can be found at www.internationalactioncenter.org
The tide is turning. A new world is possible now! See you in DC, jamie
Our new charter is about complete and can be viewed at http://www.geocities.com/mikearion/crest.html We have a few finishing touches to make and any suggestions would be most appreciated. We also have some interesting topics going on in our Yahoo Group. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thecrest One topic now is the right choice of firearms. We need a logo for the CREST and we have a few entries in our logo contest folder in our files are. Add yours also. Who knows, maybe someday you'll be famous for designing our CREST logo.

many people have asked about the origin of a quote from Henry Kissinger regarding military men, which came from Woodward and Bernstein's "The Final Days" (1976). Here is the complete paragraph--and for context, the one following--excerpted from pages 194-195 of the second Touchstone paperback edition (1994).

The United States is insisting that its troops be exempt from international war crimes prosecutions while serving in any U.N. force in Iraq, despite U.S. abuse of prisoners there, Human Rights Watch said today.
Without prior notice to members of the U.N. Security Council, the United States yesterday demanded an immediate vote to renew contentious Security Council Resolution 1487. This measure grants immunity to personnel in U.N. authorized or approved operations from states that have not ratified the International Criminal Court (ICC) treaty, including the United States and Iraq.
Human Rights Watch opposes Resolution 1487. The resolution distorts the Rome Statute, the treaty establishing the ICC. The Security Council has overstepped its authority under the U.N. Charter by seeking to amend a multilateral treaty in this way.
