  • [Cath Cauc] Ho Chi Minh City, land expropriation in ..., 15,000 households without a home

    Through threats and pressures, the authorities have seized residents’ homes at low prices and sold them high to investors. The People's Committee intends to expropriate land belonging to the Catholic community. For Fr Vĩnh Sang, Redemptorist priest, "in the name of the process of dialogue between the Holy See and the State, some ‘leading figures’ have asked the victims to remain silent”. To defend justice, truth and human rights, Catholics must be “messengers of the Gospel”, says Mgr Micae Hoàng Đức Oanh. Ho Chi Minh City (AsiaNews) – About 15,000 households are currently without a home due to an urban...
  • The Way of All Appeasement

    07/23/2015 5:44:39 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | July 23, 2015 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The now-concluded Iran nuclear negotiations predictably reflect ancient truths of appeasement. While members of the Obama administration are high-fiving each other over a deal with the Iranian theocracy, they should remember unchanging laws that will surely haunt the U.S. later on. First, appeasement always brings short-term jubilation at the expense of long-term security. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was a beloved peacemaker after the Munich Agreement of 1938 with Adolf Hitler but derided as a conceited fool and naif by May 1940. A few years from now -- after Iran has used its negotiated breathing space to rearm, ratchet up...
  • Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is 'Over'

    Today, the National Journal reported that a senior State Department official has announced, The war on terror is over. Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, the source said, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism. The article itself describes the Obama administrations new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism. This, of...

    Before Rudd rose to power, the representative aboriginals in my aboriginal-majority town were more interested in football games, hunting activities and big hair bands, to make a point about Canberras bubble classes. And, if you dont think the reconciliation police were wasting your money, then you should have joined me on my walk to one clinic with a shoeless and malnourished aboriginal boy. We were turned away. Millions were wasted on media-approved reconciliation walks, however. Australias apology fever should frighten us for many reasons. As is so often the case, campaigning journalists have promoted a culture of false guilt. Whats...

    President Obama signed a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Prague today, agreeing to reduce the U.S. Nuclear Arsenal by 30%. This treaty does not involve China in any way, and while the U.S. is cutting back, China is just now building up. The U.S. Senate will still have to ratify the treaty.

    Upon returning from Cairo on Tuesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu proclaimed, "It's time to move the peace process forward." The most sympathetic interpretation of Netanyahu's proclamation is that he was engaging in political theater. It was a low and dishonest statement uttered at the end of what has been, in the immortal words of W.H. Auden, "a low and dishonest decade. Everyone with eyes in their heads knows that there is no chance of making peace with the Palestinians. First of all, the most Israel is willing to give is less than what the Palestinians are willing to accept. But...
  • Moro Islamic Liberation Front welcomes help from Iran with "Peace Process"

    Hmmm...does that suggest something? From Asian Journal: COTABATO CITY - The Moro Islamic Liberation Front welcomes the Iranian governments interest in helping resolve the decades-old Moro rebellion in Mindanao. Jun Mantawil, chair of the MILFs peace panel secretariat, said that Irans interest was a clear indication of the growing international support for the 13-year-long peace talks. He said that more support from the international community would be better for the peace process because it will pressure the government into honoring agreements already reached. Mantawil said Iran could become part of the International Contact Group (ICG), a mechanism that would ensure...
  • Granddaughter's DefenSe of War PM (Neville Chamberlain)

    On the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, the granddaughter of former Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain has defended his response to the threat posed by Hitler. Chamberlain became prime minister in 1937 when Stanley Baldwin retired following the abdication of Edward VIII. He had been a Conservative MP for 19 years, some of which were served in senior ministerial positions, including chancellor. However, many historians believe Chamberlain's legacy as prime minister was tainted by his government's policy of appeasement towards Hitler. But Mary de Vere Taylor, who lives in Ashburton, Devon, has defended her grandfather, describing him...

    ( President Obama is on track to accomplish in his first year of office what President Carter took three years to achieve portray the United States as a confused and soft power, an Asian security expert charged after North Korea reported a nuclear weapons test Monday. Citing its approach to North Korea, Iran, South Asia, the Middle East, China and Burma, veteran India-based analyst Bahukutumbi Raman said the new administration was giving the impression that it lacks the will to respond decisively if "problem states" act in ways detrimental to U.S. interests and international peace and security.

    The Obama campaign website makes no mention of missile defense. Indeed, there is no national security issue area as there is on the McCain site. Discussion of defense topics is subordinated under the heading of foreign policy. This reflects Obamas focus on diplomacy over military options. For example, consider the following statement, Iran has sought nuclear weapons, supports militias inside Iraq and terror across the region, and its leaders threaten Israel and deny the Holocaust. But Obama believes that we have not exhausted our non-military options in confronting this threat; in many ways, we have yet to try them. Thats...

    What Would America Do if Situation Were Reversed? Kennedy Taught Us A Lesson Commentary Barack Hussein Obama says we should use diplomacy with Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran, regarding that nation's plans to develop a nuclear weapon. This wouldn't be bad advice if that same Iranian leader had not promised to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. And, with a nuclear weapon, that threat one day would become a reality. It is obvious Mr. Obama has never heard of the saying, "Those who forget history are bound to repeat it." And Obama has also forgotten what Democratic...
  • Seattle Times Editor: 'Hitler's Demands Were Not Unreasonable'

    Seattle Times editorial writer Bruce Ramsey, in an effort to defend Barack Obama against President Bushs appeasement speech, actually ends up defending Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler, and the Anschluss (the annexation of Austria): Bush, and His Use of Appeasement. Democrats are rebuking President Bush for saying in his speech to the Knesset, here, that to negotiate with terrorists and radicals is appeasement. The Democrats took it as a slap at Barack Obama. What bothers me is the continual reference to Hitler and his National Socialists, particularly the British and French accommodation at the Munich Conference of 1938. What Hitler was...

    1. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (pronounced mah-MOOD ah-mah-dih-nee-ZHAD) was born Oct. 28, 1956, three years after the CIA-sponsored coup that installed the pro-Western leader Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi as Iran's leader. A Shiite Muslim, he and his wife, a professor, have two sons and a daughter. 2. When he was an infant, Ahmadinejad's family moved from the village of Aradan to Tehran. It was at this point that the family changed its name from Saborjhian, which translates to "thread painter" (the lowliest job in Iran's traditional carpet-weaving industry), to the more religious Ahmadinejad ("race of Muhammad" or "virtuous race"). 3. Ahmadinejad is...

    A BOLD STEP: Analysts call speaker's trip 'a big deal,' but how much can she do? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's arrival in Syria tonight is widely viewed in Washington as a bold end run around President Bush, raising her profile as a kind of Democratic prime minister to Bush's Republican presidency. Pelosi's trip is far from the usual fact-finding trip by a congressional delegation -- two Democratic senators, current presidential hopeful Chris Dodd and former presidential nominee John Kerry, hardly caused a ripple when they visited Syrian President Bashar Assad in December, with similar discouragement from the White House. Nor...

    Appeasment policy: recipe for war with Iran By: Joseph Omidvar, London The Iranian threat to global peace and security underlined by its intervention and terrorist activity in Iraq, Lebanon, and Palestine, coupled with its accelerated move to acquire a nuclear weapon, have led analysts and pundits to debate probable solutions in facing up to this threat. The policy suggestions arising from such debate is generally helpful in awakening the world to the reality of Irans threat and to a search for a sound policy. Among such policy formulations, however, there are those that while abhorring the Iranian government and expressing...
