  1. Now that Sinn Fein are the biggest all Ireland party, we'll probably see a Sinn Fein led coalition in Dublin in 2/3 election cycles, then a united Ireland and a progressive government chasing social and economic equality. Not radical by any means, but a great step in the right direction for once. Gombeen politics confined to the dustbin of history and a surge to the left when most of the other European electorate seem to be looking at the right. Any thoughts?

  3. This defeat signals the end of the us as sole leader of the world.
  4. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Act_of_Killing Awesome documentary on the killing of a million communists and chinese in Indonesia in 1965. I think this is still playing in the lighthouse cinema, or you can find it online. Really surreal to see perpetrators of murder and rape proudly talking about it like this, and even recreating it on camera. Western political killers are far more subtle.
  5. Yes, you would think even from the point of view alone of weakening the empire, that they would support independence, never mind the fact that independence would mean millions of people escaping the fascist uk and having self determination.
  6. http://www.medialens.org/index.php/alerts/alert-archive/alerts-2013/737-snowden-surveillance-and-the-secret-state.html Must read article from media lens. I won't paste it here as there are lots if interesting links attached to it.
  7. I thought it was a hell of a speech, someone finally popped the balloons on Kennys little Obama party. For those who havent seen it:

  9. http://williamblum.org/aer/read/117 The latest, on Obama the hypocrite, the real reson behind invading Afghanistan, sanctions on Iran and sociopathic corporations.
  10. Maybe the USA wanted to get rid of all these terrorists they had created with their imperialism. So they arranged for Saudi Arabia to issue this fatwa encouraging all Muslims to fight in Syria. So Al-Nusra and the rest of these radical Muslims went with the help of Qatar and Saudi Arabia to fight in Syria. So now they are all in one spot for Syria and Hezbollah to wipe them out. Then once they are killed the USA can go in and finish off the Syrian state like they did with Libya. A nice double whammy of destabilising Syria without getting their hands too dirty but also getting rid of these Salafists.
  11. It would be very easy for the political police here to do the same and infiltrate all the leftie groups. They probably already have.
