      When a vicious dictator wants a fifth column of Congressmen to run interference, he knows to call the Party of Defeat.  Saddam's Salesmen   By Ben Johnson | Thursday, March 27, 2008 “If being used means that we’re highlighting the suffering of Iraqi children, or any children, then yes, we don’t mind being used.” – Rep. James McDermott, D-WA, on his 2002 trip to Iraq, financed by Saddam Hussein. We’ve long contended the terrorists could not buy better representation than the Democratic Left gives them for free. We never knew how right we were. The media revealed last...

  • U.S. report links China arms sales to Darfur carnage

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chinese sales of assault rifles and other small arms to its ally Sudan have grown rapidly during the Darfur conflict despite a U.N. arms embargo, a human rights group said on Thursday. Human Rights First, a U.S.-based nonprofit group, said a detailed study of Sudanese and U.N. trade data showed that China was virtually the sole supplier of small arms to Sudan, which pays for the weapons with its growing oil revenues. "The people of Sudan's Darfur region will endure more death, disease and dislocation, and this will be due in no small part to China's callousness,"...
  • Saddam and the Third Reich (Tonight on History Channel 9 PM EST)

    Saddam and the Third Reich Few people realize that the Baath party was actually formed upon the principles and organizational structure of the Nazi party. Iraq, because of its oil and hatred of Jews, was an important battleground between the Axis and Allied powers in World War II. Nazi propaganda was broadcast throughout Baghdad, and Iraqis often went on rampages against Jews throughout the war. One of the most ardent Nazi supporters during WWII was named Khairallah Talfah. Talfah was Saddam's uncle. After the war, many of the key Iraqi Nazi supporters, all of whom evaded prosecution, wound up involved...
  • 'Axis of Unity' in Latin America Could Be Growing Threat for the U.S.

    Since 2001, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez have indulged in a high-profile friendship. They bask in their cozy camaraderie, and they have openly invited other Latin American countries, including Nicaragua, Cuba and Bolivia, to join their anti-American fraternity. Ahmadinejad and Chavez have called themselves the "Axis of Unity." Some security experts call them something else: a potential threat to American security. "There are two things they have in common – one is their hatred of the United States, and the second is oil," says Roger Noriega, former assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs for...

    Radicals never say sorry By Jonah Goldberg "Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon." This excerpt from William Ayers' memoir appeared in the New York Times on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 -- a few hours before Al Qaeda terrorists crashed hijacked planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Ayers, once a leader in the Weather Underground -- the group that declared "war" on the U.S. government in 1970 -- told the Times, "I don't regret setting bombs" and "I feel we didn't do enough." Ayers recently reappeared in the news because

    MIAMI - At the end of Nicaragua's civil war, Juan Gregorio Rodriguez traded his life as a Contra rebel for that of auto mechanic in Florida. He kept in touch with other rebels and supported their political efforts, but mostly from afar. That changed in 2006, when the Contras' nemesis, Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega, was elected president, 16 years after his Soviet-backed government lost power in a vote that ended the guerrilla conflict in which some 30,000 people died.

    MONKEY POINT, Nicaragua — If the ruling mullahs of the Islamic Republic of Iran were chafing enough about U.S. Navy vessels in the Strait of Hormuz to send speedboats after them last month, they must take some comfort in having projected an equivalent threat in America's own backyard, in this unlikeliest of locales.
  • Russia makes 4th delivery of nuclear fuel to Iran

    Russia has now delivered more than half the fuel for Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant, after a fourth consignment arrived at the Bushehr site in southern Iran. The fourth consignment of fuel weighed 11 tonnes, Iran's national news agency quoted the Organisation for Production and Development of Nuclear Energy as saying in a statement. Russia has so far delivered 44 tonnes of fuel, after shipments which arrived on December 17, 28 and January 18. It is due to deliver a total of about 82 tonnes of nuclear fuel in eight consignments, with the last due next month. Iran insisted on...

    FP: Pavel Stroilov, welcome to Frontpage Interview. Stroilov: I am very honoured, though I would have much preferred to see the author of the book, Alexander Litvinenko, here in my place. Alas, he cannot speak for himself anymore, so our sad duty is to act as his posthumous spokesmen. While Alexander was still alive, he made a number of extremely important allegations. If nothing else, his horrible death itself proves that those allegations should be taken very seriously and investigated most thoroughly. FP: Our thoughts and prayers are with Alexander and with his family. Against all odds, let us hope...

    MOSCOW: Russia will set up a massive anti-missile shield in Iran that will virtually guarantee the country against military attacks. Moscow will supply Tehran with the advanced long-range S-300 surface-to-air missile complexes, informed Russian sources said. “Several dozen S-300PMU-1 complexes will be delivered to Iran under a contract signed several years ago,” the Interfax news agency quoted a defence industry source as saying on Wednesday. He said deliveries could start as early as next year. Another Russian defence source told the Kommersant daily that Moscow was planning to sell Iran five batteries of S-300 launchers at a price of $800...

    The Eurasian Politician - Issue 5 (April-September 2002) THE ROOTS OF ISLAMIC TERRORISM Antero Leitzinger (March 2002) This article intends to trace the roots of Islamic terrorism, with special focus on Afghanistan. Notes are added on practical and philosophical problems of world media in finding the right track. From systematic errors in revealing little details, to serious misconceptions about basic facts and principles, we can relatively easily learn how much of "common knowledge" rests actually on superficial research and popular myths. Instead of becoming critical and aware of the traps laid around the issue, both Islamists and Islamophobes fail to...

Rupert Allen Clear Duncan, a leader of some 400 Creole who live along the shoreline, confronted the foreigners dressed in suits and military uniforms that day in March and demanded to know the purpose of their aerial trespasses.

  • Analysis: China eyes J-10A sale to Iran

    HONG KONG, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- Is China preparing to export its J-10A fighter aircraft to Iran? Most likely, say military observers in Moscow and Tehran. The Russian Kommersant Daily reported that an Iranian aviation company agent had confirmed that China would export to Iran 24 J-10A fighters between 2008 and 2010 at a price of $1 billion. Allowing this information to surface at this time appears intended to embarrass, and warn, the United States. China is sending the message that it too can play the arms export game -- reminding the United States to think twice about its arms...

    "Water, water every where, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water every where, Nor a drop to drink." --Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner ----------------------------------------------------- Iran isn’t an energy-independent country. I’m well aware that Iran produces more than 4 million barrels of oil per day, the fourth-highest production in the world. And with the near-constant reporting about Iranian crude reserves during the past six months, I find it difficult to believe that anyone could be unaware that Iran has 132 billion barrels in proven reserves--or, at least, they claim to. But what’s often ignored is that...

    La Herradura (Espania), 22 Nov. (IPS) The problem with uneducated, ignorant, populist leaders like Hugo Chavez of Venezuela or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran is that not only they use words which they ignore the true meaning, but also, thinking they are more intelligent than other mortal human beings, they do not need to open a dictionary and look for the signification of the idioms they use. In their recent common press conference in Tehran, Chavez and Ahmadinejad promised the “end of American imperialism!”, mistaking “imperialism” with “colonialism” and ignoring certainly that being a phenomenon as old s the existence of...

    Chavez, Ahmadinejad to work against US By NASSER KARIMI, Associated Press Writer 53 minutes ago The presidents of Venezuela and Iran boasted Monday that they will defeat U.S. imperialism together, saying the fall of the dollar is a prelude to the end of Washington's global dominance. Hugo Chavez's visit to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran followed a failed weekend attempt by the firebrand duo to push the Organization of Petroleum Exporting States away from trading in the slumping greenback. Their proposal at an OPEC summit was overruled by other cartel members led by Saudi Arabia, a strong U.S. ally. But the...

    Deepening China-Iran Ties Weaken Bid to Isolate Iran November 18, 2007 Washington Post Robin Wright The rapidly growing relationship between Iran and China has begun to undermine international efforts to ensure that Iran cannot convert a peaceful energy program to develop a nuclear arsenal, U.S. and European officials say. The Bush administration and its allies said last week that they plan to seek new U.N. sanctions against Iran, after the International Atomic Energy Agency said Iranian officials had given inadequate answers to questions about the country's past nuclear activities. But U.S. and European officials now worry more about a Chinese...

    TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran and China vowed on Tuesday to boost ties that Beijing believes will help preserve regional and international peace, official Iranian media reported. ADVERTISEMENT The two countries' pledge to cooperate more closely is likely to irritate Western powers seeking tougher sanctions on oil-producing Iran over its disputed atomic ambitions. Visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi held talks with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose country has repeatedly refused to heed U.N. demands to halt nuclear activities which Washington suspects are aimed at making bombs.
