  • Hidden secrets of 1491 world map revealed via multispectral imaging

    Henricus Martellus, a German cartographer working in Florence in the late 15th century, produced a highly detailed map of the known world. According to experts, there is strong evidence that Christopher Columbus studied this map and that it influenced his thinking before his fateful voyage. Martellus' map arrived at Yale in 1962, the gift of an anonymous donor. Scholars at the time hailed the map's importance and argued that it could provide a missing link to the cartographic record at the dawn of the Age of Discovery. However, five centuries of fading and scuffing had rendered much of the map's...
  • Baghdad leaps to explain warhead find

    BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Iraq took the unusual step of issuing an explanation for a missile warhead discovered yesterday by UN arms inspectors -- before the monitors themselves made the news public. The inspectors found the abandoned case of a small rocket and a "modified, damaged and abandoned warhead" at a missile parts factory south of Baghdad, the Iraqi News Agency said, describing it as a Russian-made Luna -- a short-range rocket permitted under UN resolutions. Iraq, however, rarely reports on what the inspectors find. The report appeared timed to give Iraq's version of events before the discovery was publicized by...
  • Why Did Democrats Lie About Weapons of Mass Destruction?

    Canada Free Press ^ | May 23, 2008 | By John Lillpop
    As the war in Iraq grows more unpopular with increasing number of Americans, Democrats in collusion with the liberal mainstream media, continue to politicize the war by distorting the facts. Claim that President Bush lied about WMD in order to implement a grand strategy by neo-cons well before he took office supposedly aimed at using military force to install democratic regimes friendly to the U.S. throughout the Middle East. However, the left has never adequately answered the following question. If Bush knew there was no WMD, why would he send 150,000 troops into Iraq since his “lie” would be immediately...

  • Why does the media lie about Powell’s speech to the UN?

    When Secretary of State Colin Powell stepped down earlier this month, the flood of political obituaries were packed with praise, but almost all contained obligatory paragraphs highlighting the top diplomat’s “low point”: his February 2003 speech on Iraq to the United Nations.But no matter how much conventional media wisdom says otherwise, Powell’s presentation on the eve of the Iraq War remains as true today as it was then, which is to say almost entirely so. To claim, as the New York Times editorialized recently, that “Mr. Powell in fact offered half-truths, poorly analyzed intelligence and outright fantasies” is pure fiction...

    [snip] QUESTION: What is your reaction to Kofi Annan’s pronouncement about Iraq, about our action in Iraq? I'm curious, obviously, what you think about that. I'm not -- I don't recall he's used the word "illegal" before. Also, is that really helpful to our efforts to, you know, increase international involvement and also to the Iraqis' effort to try to establish a peaceful situation over there? SECRETARY POWELL: I think the Secretary General -- I can't give you a LexisNexis of what he may have said over the past year, but he has certainly always felt that it is an...
  • Saddam's WMD have been found: New evidence unveils chem/bio, nuclear, ballistic arms

    New evidence out of Iraq suggests the U.S. effort to track down Saddam Hussein's missing weapons of mass destruction is having better success than is being reported. Key assertions by the intelligence community widely judged in the media and by critics of President Bush as having been false are turning out to have been true after all. But this stunning news has received little attention from the major media, and the president's critics continue to insist that "no weapons" have been found. In virtually every case -- chemical, biological, nuclear and ballistic missiles -- the United States has found the...

    I am a US citizen. You are probably afraid to publish this, because you don’t seem to like US citizens in Russia: The first US war death today was a US Marine. He was a hero. He represents the sacrifices the US is willing to make to ensure a safe world. Where were the Russians? Hiding in their homes. Pretending to have a “principled” stand against war, when really you have become a nation of cowards, still backing dictators instead of the oppressed. Iraq has also launched Scud missiles, which Iraq denied they had. They have now clearly violated the...

    Iraqi arsenal of banned weapons discovered British troops outside Basra have discovered cruise missiles and warheads hidden inside fortified bunkers as part of a massive arsenal abandoned by Saddam Hussein's disintegrating southern army. Cases of rockets, giant anti-shipping mines and other ammunition are piled from floor to ceiling in dozens of bunkers at what is marked on maps as the Az Zubaya Heliport. The most disturbing find was two Russian-made Al-Harith anti-shipping cruise missiles, each 6m long and 1m in diameter, and nine warheads, hidden in two enormous reinforced concrete bunkers. Another missile, as yet unidentified, was found still crated...

    World Tribune ^ | 13 March 03 | Christopher W. Holton
    In 1991, at the end of Operation Desert Storm, the USA called off the dogs and had mercy on the Iraqi Republican Guards who were being dispatched like fish in a barrel. Iraq, in return, signed UNSC Resolution 687, which served as a cease fire for the Gulf War. The world should forget about the 17 useless UN resolutions passed since that time and take a closer look at that original resolution. By any measure, the Iraqis have violated this resolution and over. Indeed, the Iraqis have been behaving as if they had WON the Gulf War. Because this served...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 25: President Pervez Musharraf said on Tuesday that Pakistan was not in favour of regime change "anywhere", because this would destabilize the entire region. "I would not like to get involved in conjectures," he said when a Saudi journalist wanted to know whether Pakistan was afraid of any consequences for itself if there was a regime change in Iraq. Addressing a crowded press conference, the president said he did not think there would be regime change in other states also. Asked whether Pakistan as a member of the current Security Council would support the second resolution on...
