Justin Podur: Crisis in Darfur (too)

I have appreciated David Peterson’s blogging about the ‘humanitarians’ and their ‘interventions’ about Sudan. So when I read his latest, referring to my own recent piece on the subject (a piece which made good use of his own previous blogging), I thought it a good time to blog on the topic myself. I think David, Read more…

David Peterson: “Crisis in Darfur”

Almost every time I read about the “Crisis in Darfur“—a crisis which, at least as far as the UN Secretary-General, the various UN humanitarian agencies such as the OCHA and the UNHCR, and the UN News Center are concerned, surely has received more attention than any other throughout the course of 2004, and certainly over Read more…

David Peterson: Whitey’s America

Don’t you wish that, at least once every presidential-election cycle in the States, everyone who doesn’t vote and who is at least 18-years-old somehow could be enticed to cast a ballot, separately from the Regular Voters, of course, and that the members of this group of Irregular Voters (or Regular Non-Voters) not only could exercise Read more…

Justin Podur: Multiple Multi-Blogging

Folks, while I will continue to contribute to the ZNet multi-author blogging system, I’ve also rolled an updated version of my previous blog, The Killing Train, at www.killingtrain.com, which I’ll be posting to daily as before. As befits this blog, I’ll put particularly important posts here — but since most of the authors in this Read more…

David Peterson: “Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone”

Odd, don’t you think, that members of the International Atomic Energy Agency could have adopted more than one resolution during Friday’s (the 24th) closing session of its 48th General Conference in Vienna, and now it’s already four days later, the morning of Tuesday, the 28th, in fact, but none of the texts of these resolutions Read more…

David Peterson: “Israeli Nuclear Capabilities and Threat” II

Pleading for a long overdue “accounting” in world affairs, one wherein peoples and states will decide, once and for all, what they are “united for” and what they are “united against,” Israel’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Silvan Shalom stepped before the UN General Assembly last week to tell it that the “problems of terror, Islamic Read more…

Noam Chomsky: A Personal Statement RE Z/ZNet

“We live in an era of media concentration, vast efforts on many fronts (political, economic, military, ideological) to insulate state and private power from critical discussion or even popular awareness, and to reduce citizens to isolated atomized creatures restricted to satisfying personal “created wants.” This massive and coordinated campaign has been partially successful, but only Read more…

David Peterson: Barack Obama and the Clash of Civilizations

A question for Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic frontrunner (an absolute shoe-in, in fact) in the race to capture the seat in the U.S. Senate currently occupied by the Republican Peter Fitzgerald (the other held by the Democrat Richard Durbin): Under what circumstances would, say, the Government of Iran ever be justified in Read more…
