Sleepwalking to Disaster in Iran

The American Administration has decided launch a military attack on Iran, barring an improbable sanctions resolution against that country in the UN Security Council. Whether this attack takes place in June 2005, when the Pentagon has been instructed to be ready, or at a later date, once all other preparations have been made, is really the only question that remains to be answered. Scott Ritter analyses the situation.

If there is no self,
whose arthritis is this?

Be here now.
Be someplace else later.
Is that so complicated? ...

(a bit of spiritual humour can go a long way towards peace ... not to be interpreted as anti-semitism or anti-buddhism ...)

More than $20 billion for Military space ventures

The Congressional Research Services provides a wonderful source of information which is made available through the conduit of the Federation of American Scientists. Recently seen is this illuminating document from February 2005, "U.S. Space Programs: Civilian, Military, and Commercial"

"Meanwhile, the Bush Administration planned to increase DOD?s space budget significantly ? from $15.7 billion in FY2002, to $20 billion in FY2004, to a projected $28.7 billion in FY2008. However, in its report on the FY2005 DOD appropriations bill (S.2559, S.Rept. 108-284), the Senate ppropriations Committee cautioned that funding for DOD?s space activities may not be sustainable. DOD has not yet released its FY2006 budget request for ?space.? DOD has not yet publicly released figures for its total FY2006 space budget request, nor for how much those programs received in total for FY2005."

What the US really wants in Lebanon:
THE ENORMOUS demonstration organized by Hezbollah exposed the ethnic, religious and class divisions that cut through Lebanon. Bush had tried to link popular demands for Syria?s withdrawal to the U.S. agenda of extending its domination throughout the Middle East. But Bush is only the latest in a long line of foreigners to project their own agendas onto the people of Lebanon--a situation that has left the Lebanese the losers.
