As the 6am ceasefire takes effect... the real war begins

By Robert Fisk

If the ceasefire collapses, as seems certain, neither the
Israelis nor the Americans appear to have any plans
to escape the consequences. The US saw this war as
an opportunity to humble Hizbollah's Iranian and Syrian
sponsors but already it seems as if the tables have been
turned. Continue

Washington’s Interests In Israel’s war.

By Seymour M. Hersh

The Bush Administration, was closely involved in the
planning of Israel’s retaliatory attacks. President Bush
and Vice-President Dick Cheney were convinced, current
and former intelligence and diplomatic officials told me,
that a successful Israeli Air Force bombing campaign
against Hezbollah’s heavily fortified underground-missile
and command-and-control complexes in Lebanon could
ease Israel’s security concerns and also serve as a
prelude to a potential American preƫmptive attack to
destroy Iran’s nuclear installations. Continue

treatment of the Palestinians in Gaza before he
sets his rifle down. Continue

Gullible Americans

Paul Craig Roberts

The two co-chairmen of the 9/11 Commission Report,
Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, have just released a
new book, “Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the
9/11 Commission.” Kean and Hamilton reveal that
the commission suppressed the fact that Muslim ire
toward the US is due to US support for Israel’s
persecution and dispossession of the Palestinians, not
to our “freedom and democracy” as Bush
propagandistically claims. Continue

What the Hell Has Happened To The Israeli Army?

By UriAvnery

On the 32nd day of the war, Hizbullah is still standing
and fighting. That by itself is a stunning feat: a small
guerilla organization, with a few thousand fighters,
is standing up to one of the strongest armies in the
world and has not been broken after a month of
"pulverizing". Continue

Castro's 80th birthday, an essay by Alexandre Trudeau:

From the very start, the United States never gave
Castro's Cuba a choice. Either Castro had to submit
himself and his people to America's will or he had to
hold his ground against them.
