Comment Bush a détruit la Convention de Genève... avant d'en réclammer le respect pour ses soldats.

How Bush kicked the [expletive] out of the Geneva Conventions

The Globe And Mail - 26.03.03
The people who mistreat the prisoners will be treated as war criminals. (George W. Bush) But nothing George Bush says on the subject of Geneva Conventions and international legal standards is likely to convince anyone. He has unleashed the greatest onslaught against international law of any U.S. president in living memory. He has torn up arms-control agreements and worked to sabotage the International Criminal Court. In his campaign against terrorism, he has not only flouted the venerable Geneva accords but sought to deny suspects the benefits of the law he is sworn to uphold.

The next time you see a video of captive U.S. troops in Iraq, spare a thought for the 18 Afghans released this month from the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. They showed up yesterday in Kabul, cleared, for what it's worth, of suspicion. One of them, Salaiman Shah, told Agence France-Presse that he'd been picked up in northern Afghanistan by forces of the savage warlord Abdul Rashid Dostum. He said he was tortured and kept for days without food before being turned over to U.S. forces, eventually spending 18 months in a two-metre-square cell at Guantanamo. Mr. Shah said he had no connection to the former Taliban regime or al-Qaeda, and apparently his U.S. interrogators eventually came to believe him. Another prisoner, identified only as Bismillah, spent more than a year at Guantanamo. His crime was failing to answer when asked by U.S. interrogators in Afghanistan about the location of Taliban units. He's deaf, he said; he couldn't understand them. This treatment of terrorism suspects falls far short of the standards Mr. Bush wants others to uphold.

A war of words over sending pornography to troops

Star Tribune - 31.03.03
Do not send pork or tobacco. Do not send religious materials. And do not send pornography. In other words, send nothing that will bring grief - or danger - to soldiers in the lands surrounding Mecca. Thus, scores of religious leaders got upset when they heard about a DirectLink Media Group offer to send pornographic videotapes and DVDs to U.S. soldiers and veterans anywhere, with the soldiers paying shipping and handling charges. The pornographer's news release was blunt. The company merely wants to help defend democracy, free speech and the American way.

Tattoo artists see surge in red, white, blue

WKMG-TV 6 Orlando - 30.03.03
"Tattoo artists say the war in Iraq is having an impact on what they do, creating the need for more red, white and blue ink. The increased interest in patriotic tattoos is similar to what happened after Sept. 11, 2001. In Stewartstown, Pa., a woman asked Stew Ehrhart, owner of Main Street Tattoos and Piercing, to cover up her tattooed peace sign with an eagle because her boyfriend was in the military."

CYBER-GUERRE - SONS DE BOTTES

Gagner la confiance

Revue de Presse du Monde et Courrier International 08.04.03
"Gagner la paix" est l'obsession du New York Times. Le quotidien, de même que le Washington Post, souhaite que l'ONU joue un rôle important en Irak : "Le meilleur moyen de faire de la victoire militaire en Irak une défaite politique au Moyen-Orient serait d'introniser un soldat américain vice-roi de Bagdad, avant de mettre en place un gouvernement irakien fantoche." Washington est attendu au tournant par le Toronto Star : "La meilleure façon pour les Américains de prouver leur sincérité serait de confier le pays vaincu à l'ONU." "Même affaiblie, la voix de l'ONU doit être écoutée", poursuit La Razon de La Paz.

Il faudra bien un jour que les pays arabes fassent leur aggiornamento...

La crise de la pensée arabe

Revue de Presse du Monde et Courrier International 08.04.03
Le quotidien panarabe Al-Hayat s'inquiète de "la crise de la pensée arabe" mise en lumière par la guerre en Irak : "Une des caractéristiques de la pensée politique arabe est l'absence de diversité. En Egypte par exemple, il est difficile de distinguer le discours progressiste de celui des islamistes, celui de la gauche de celui de la droite en ces temps de guerre."

La Guerre est le Nerf de l'Argent (Talleyrand)

Revue de Presse du Monde et Courrier International 08.04.03
Sous le titre "Guerre et gros sous", El Watan d'Alger préfère inverser la perspective, et faire sien le mot de Talleyrand : la guerre est le nerf de l'argent. Le quotidien algérien s'indigne du spectacle offert par "ces appétits qui s'aiguisent, et ces convoitises bavantes sur les fabuleuses richesses d'un pays où les gens n'ont pas encore fini de mourir". "Pour ses initiateurs, une conclusion heureuse de cette guerre, ce sont les dollars par centaines de milliards qu'elle leur permettra d'engranger", poursuit le journal. Même révolte sous la plume du Quotidien d'Oran , qui fait du président américain "un Ubush roi", tout entier dévoué à "l'avènement d'un système économique en quête d'un nouvel espace vital".

Trial of protesting nuns set to open

Seattle Times - 31.03.03
The nuns say they were exercising their right to free speech when they cut through a fence around a Minuteman III missile silo, used their own blood to paint a cross on the military structure and began swinging at it with hammers. Prosecutors say those actions interfered with the national defense — a crime that, if a jury finds them guilty, could put the women behind bars for 20 years. Dominican sisters Ardeth Platte, 66; Carol Gilbert, 55; and Jackie Hudson, 68, head to court today for a trial that supporters say is ill-timed in the midst of war. The nuns, jailed since their Oct. 6 protest near Greeley, maintain they were a "Citizens Weapons Inspections Team" that was symbolically disarming the United States.

Combien de pays font partie de la coalition ? Euhhh...

The curious coalition: US allies list sparks global concern, confusion

Yahoo News 29.03.03
Eager to present the war on Iraq ( news -web sites ) as a worldwide effort, the United States has taken to releasing on an almost daily basis an ever-growing list of the members of the so-called "coalition of the willing." But the list, available on the White House website (www.whitehouse.gov), has created nearly as much confusion as it has cleared up, as some countries have disavowed membership, demanded inclusion or reacted angrily to snide commentary about their value as partners in the conflict. "It's become a logistical nightmare," said one senior US official. "We've created a monster that demands constant attention for consistency's sake."

Les stations de radio US se voient conseiller une programmation "patriotique"

For Broadcast Media, Patriotism Pays
Consultants Tell Radio, TV Clients That Protest Coverage Drives Off Viewers

Washington Post 28.03.03
"Get the following production pieces in the studio NOW: Patriotic music that makes you cry, salute, get cold chills! Go for the emotion," advised McVay Media, a Cleveland-based consultant, in a "War Manual" memo to its station clients. "Air the National Anthem at a specified time each day as long as the USA is at war." The company, which describes itself as the largest radio consultant in the world, also has been counseling talk show stations to "Make sure your hosts aren't 'over the top.' Polarizing discussions are shaky ground. This is not the time to take cheap shots to get reaction... not when our young men and women are 'in harm's way.'"

En cas d'alerte terroriste, c'est tout le pays qui s'arrÉte...

Code Red would trigger a virtual lockdown

Post-Gazette 30.03.03
Top terror alert could shut landmarks, ground planes, stop trains or trigger roadblocks. National landmarks such as the Washington Monument, Ellis Island and the Gateway Arch in St. Louis could be shut down. Planes could be grounded, trains could stop running, and bridges and tunnels could be closed. U.S. borders might be sealed off, and roadblocks might be set up on interstates and other major highways. The United States is prepared to go into lockdown mode if the government should raise the nation's terror alert to Code Red, the highest threat level for terrorism. Code Red means there is a severe risk of terrorist attack, or that an attack is imminent or may already be under way.

Big Brother Is Watching You Shop 

Wired - 30.03.03
The U.S. government has discovered a powerful resource in its war against terrorism - credit-card records, hotel bills, grocery lists and other records detailing the private lives of its citizens. Government investigators are turning to commercial databases to track down and isolate possible hijackers and suicide bombers before they strike, raising fear among privacy advocates that long-standing protections against government snooping may be eroded.

Belgium to follow Dutch marijuana lead

The Guardian - 07.04.03
"The Belgian parliament has voted to legalise the personal use of cannabis, within certain guidelines, for anyone over the age of 18. The move, which has been the subject of fierce debate in Belgium for the last two years, will allow users to smoke small quantities of the drug in private, provided they do not disturb public order. Its sale will, however, remain illegal and Belgium will not tolerate Dutch-style coffee shops selling cannabis over the counter. Hard drugs will continue to be outlawed."

Court: Man Can Bark at Police Dog

Philadelphia Enquirer - 30.03.03
A man was using his free speech rights when he barked back at a police dog, a state appeals court has ruled. Jeremy Gilchrist, then 21, encountered the dog, which was in a police cruiser, as he walked along a street with friends. His attorney said he was trying to be funny when he barked back. "The mere fact that the police dog had commenced the barking did not entitle it to a solo performance," attorney Patrick McGee wrote in the appeal.

Warner Bros. eliminates peace image from 'What a Girl Wants' ads

Sacramento Bee - 29.03.03
Print advertisements for the teen comedy "What a Girl Wants" originally featured a photograph of star Amanda Bynes wearing an American flag T-shirt and flashing the peace sign with her fingers as she stands between two British royal guards. With the war in Iraq sparking anti-war protests in the United States and abroad, however, Warner Bros. quickly changed the ad. The studio said Monday it feared the peace sign would be viewed as a political message.

A Japanese toy maker claims to have developed a gadget that translates dog barks into human language and plans to begin selling the product under the name Bowlingual in U.S. pet stores, gift shops and retail outlets this summer. Tokyo-based Takara Co. Ltd. says about 300,000 of the dog translator devices have been sold since its launch in Japan late last year. It is forecasting far bigger sales once an English-language version comes to America in August.

Worst U.S. Industrial Tragedy All but Forgotten

Yahoo news - 27.03.03
The explosion, believed to have been caused by an errant cigarette, was the worst U.S. industrial accident ever. It killed as many as 800 people and injured some 5,000, yet today is all but forgotten mostly, says the author of a new book on the subject, because no one wanted to remember. In a blast so ferocious it knocked aircraft from the skies and rattled buildings hundreds of miles away, the French freighter Grandcamp, loaded with ammonium nitrate, exploded on April 16, 1947, while docked at Texas City on Galveston Bay 40 miles south of Houston.
