Chris Coverdale interview with Tony Farrel

Most taxpayers know that evading tax is a crime, but how many of us know that paying tax, council tax, fines, PAYE, can also be a war crime?

Tulsi Gabbard, Dennis Kucinich Travel To Syria On Fact Finding, Peace Mission

In a surprise revelation, U.S. Representative from Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard, has embarked upon an unannounced visit to Syria for a “fact-finding trip . . . to promote and work for peace.”

Gabbard did not announce her trip publicly for obvious safety and security reasons. However, now that the news is out, the Western corporate press is reacting in apoplectic rage at her audacity to act in a manner unapproved by the establishment.

These press outlets have attacked her for not giving “advance notice” to Democratic Party leadership, for not yet disclosing who funded the trip, and for possibly meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. [We are sure the same reaction would be provided if she had travelled to Israel, right?] Gabbard has even been maligned as the GOP’s favorite Democrat, a wholly unfair label but one ironically hoisted upon her because of her opposition to international destabilisation and imperialist wars.

Jeremy Corbyn Accused of Being Russian “Collaborator” for Questioning NATO Troop Build-Up on Border

The Leader of the U.K.’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, called for a “de-escalation” of tensions between NATO and Russia, adding in a BBC interview on Thursday: “I want to see a de-militarization of the border between them.”

Along with the U.S., the U.K. has been rapidly building up its military presence in the Baltic region, including in states that border Russia, and is now about to send another 800 troops to Estonia, 500 of which will be permanently based.

In response, Russia has moved its own troops within its country near those borders, causing serious military tensions to rise among multiple nuclear-armed powers. Throughout 2016, the Russian and U.S. militaries have engaged in increasingly provocative and aggressive maneuvers against one another. This week, the U.S. began deploying 4,000 troops to Poland, “the biggest deployment of U.S. troops in Europe since the end of the Cold War.”

War Crimes in Fallujah, Tony Blair and a “Man with a Mission”

This is old news but people need to know about it as new news to many.

At the bottom of this article there is some more news about how Firebombs were used in Fallujah what is new news to many since the UK Government and media were keeping this secret from the public.

Dr Bill Wilson, knows a bit about duplicity and is not a man to give up, as a glance at his website shows. (1) Dr Wilson is a Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) in the Scottish National Party, for the West of Scotland. This week, he lodged a Parliamentary Motion (2) “highlighting the consequences of the US and UK’s use of weapons of mass destruction in Fallujah, in 2004.”

War Crimes in Fallujah, Tony Blair and a "Man with a Mission"

“The reason governments have secrets is not because the public won’t understand, it’s because the public will.” (A friend.)

Speaking after lodging the Motion, Dr Wilson said, “The consequences are ongoing: a survey showed a four-fold increase in all cancers, a 12-fold increase in childhood cancer in under-14s and a 38-fold increase in leukaemia. By contrast, Hiroshima survivors showed a 17-fold increase with regard to the latter. What’s more, because of this cancer crisis, local doctors are advising women not to have children.

“I have long been convinced that those responsible for the invasion of Iraq should be charged. It seems to me that any reasonable person looking at what happen in Fallujah would conclude that major war crimes have been committed. Tony Blair has to answer for his decisions … women are now being advised not to have children.

To turn a blind eye now would surely make us all complicit.”

We want the Taxes for Peace Bill to be debated in Parliament. On the UK Parliament website a member of the public decided to make their voice heard by setting up an e-petition on the peace tax issue.If it reaches 10,000 individuals it would force the government to respond or if it reaches 100,000 it could potentially lead to a debate in Parliament.

The best way to ensure the Taxes for Peace Bill gets time for debate in Parliament is to make sure this e-petition gets as many signatures as possible.

So please sign, share and promote this e-petition – both online and in your communities.
Thank you.

This cause was taken up by Ruth Cadbury MP who with the support of her Parliamentary colleagues moved the Taxes for Peace Bill, legislation that if passed would enable all citizens who define as conscientious objectors to redirect the military portions of their taxes to non-violent means of ensuring our national security.

Complete battlefield map of Iraq: January 2017

The Iraqi Army is quickly closing-on the Syrian border after launching their most recent military operation to liberate the final towns in the Al-Anbar Governorate from the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) terrorists.

Backed by the Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi), the Iraqi Armed Forces have managed to capture several sites along the main highway leading from Baghdad to the Syrian border-crossing at Al-Qa’im.

Conflict Costs Us $13.6 Trillion a Year. And We Spend Next to Nothing on Peace

The world continues to spend vastly disproportionate resources on creating and containing violence compared to what it spends on peace.

Life Animated 564


Conflict today has captured the worlds’ attention as we directly or indirectly bare witness to the growing reach of terrorism and civil unrest. While the devastating human suffering caused by war is the most obvious impact, the long-term cost to the economy can be crippling for a region’s infrastructure and stability.

While the physical, emotional, and societal benefits that would result from improvements in peace seem self-evident, the potential economic benefits of peace are continually overlooked in economic debates.

Will you write to your MP about the Conscience Campaign in support of the Bill?

Dear Friends,

In 2016 we marked the centenary of the Military Service Act by calling on the government to extend the definition of conscientious objection for the 21st Century.

This cause was taken up by Ruth Cadbury MP who with the support of her Parliamentary colleagues moved the Taxes for Peace Bill, legislation that if passed would enable all citizens who define as conscientious objectors to redirect the military portions of their taxes to non-violent means of ensuring our national security.

Where’s our missing $40bn gold? Iraq demands return of oil money ‘stolen by U.S. institutions

Iraq is demanding the return of $40 billion gold money it says was stolen by U.S. institutions in the wake of the 2003 invasion.

In a letter to sent the UN sent last month the Iraqi parliament asked for help finding and recovering the money, which disappeared from the Development Fund of Iraq.

The parliament’s Integrity Committee called the disappearance of the money a ‘financial crime’ but said UN Security Council resolutions prevent Iraq from making a claim against the United States.

Saddam Hussein still haunts Washington, 10 years after his death

The democratic Iraq that President Bush had envisioned turned out to be little more than a pipe dream, with the Americans failing to stop the deadly spiral of sectarian violence in the country.

Saddam Hussein, US news, Latest news, World news, US invasion of Iraq, Saddam Hussein's execution, US and Saddam Hussein, latest news, India news Former Iraqi President Saddam HusseinTen years after Saddam Hussein’s execution, the ghost of the Iraqi strongman still haunts America, serving as a potent reminder of its broken ambitions to bring stability and democracy to the Middle East. When Saddam was hung in Baghdad on December 30, 2007, then president George W Bush already knew that the invasion of Iraq, which had already left 3,000 US forces dead, had not yielded the progress Washington sought.
