What's Going To Happen To San Onofre's Nuclear Waste?

I can only wonder how John Muir would react to all this.

Applying Lessons From 9/11 To Syria

Professor Epps states that blowback is the result of the inability of the U.S. to properly do "nation building" after its military conducts foreign operations. Due to the U.S. failure to provide jobs and a stable cultural environment, there is hopelessness amongst the citizenry, who then turn back to radicalism.

Actually, Chalmers Johnson was the person who defined what blowback is and what causes it. The concept "blowback" means retaliation for things our government has done to and in foreign countries. It also refers to retaliation for the numerous illegal operations we have carried out abroad that were kept totally secret from the American public. This means that when the retaliation comes – as it did so spectacularly on September 11, 2001 – the American public is unable to put the events in context. So they tend to support acts intended to lash out against the perpetrators, thereby most commonly preparing the ground for yet another cycle of blowback.

I suggest reading all of Johnson's books for a complete understanding of blowback and the recurring damages caused by American hegemony.

Marine Will Not Do Time In Haditha Killings

On July 17, 1998 in Rome, by a margin of 120-7, delegates from the nations of the world voted to establish an international criminal court to bring to justice soldiers and political leaders charged with war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. Unlike the International Court of Justice in the Hague, formed to adjudicate claims between nations, this court was designed to have jurisdiction over individuals.

Britain, France, Holland, Canada and Germany supported the treaty. The United States voted against it. In his opening speech, American Ambassador Bill Richardson said the U.S. would only support a court that received cases solely from the United Nations Security Council, where a single American vote can veto any action.

Can there be any wonder why Iraq refused a Status of Forces Agreement with the U.S.?

Possible Cuts Outlined At San Diego Town Hall Meeting

Scott Peters quoted in a October, 2007 San Diego Magazine article:

“There is no pension crisis,” he says. “Labeling it as a crisis is destructive and outdated.”

Sanders Defends His Role In Redevelopment Bill

"Hopefully at the end of this process," she said, "as a community we'll be actively intolerant of any financial mischief by our government, and openly hostile towards schemes, manipulations and deceptions. If that happens, we'll have made some progress." Diann Shipione
