LA DATE DU JOUR

3 Juillet 1905

Dans le port d'Odessa, la police tsariste et les milices cosaques ouvrent le feu puis chargent au sabre une foule d'ouvriers grévistes, leurs familles mais aussi de simples passants. On comptera plus de 6.000 morts. Les images des cadavres sur les marches du grand escalier du port inspireront la fameuse scène du film "Le Cuirassé Potemkine" de Sergei Eisenstein.

3 Juillet 1988

La croiseur américain USS Vincennes commet une petite erreur d'appréciation sur son radar et tire un missile contre le vol civil Iran Air numéro 655, tuant les 290 passagers. Malgré le fait que le croiseur se trouvait illégalement dans les eaux iraniennes et malgré le fait que le capitaine du vaisseau ait reconnu l'erreur, le Vice President George Bush (le papa de l'actuel) déclara: "Les Etats Unis d'Amériques n'ont pas à s'excuser, jamais, pour quoi que ce soit. Je me fiche de savoir ce qui s'est vraiment passé. "

US exports anti-abortion policy

[BBC Radio 03.07.03]
On his first business day in office, with the support of voters like Wendy, President George W Bush started a war few people have heard about - his war on abortion. (..) He reinstated an old policy from the Reagan days called the Mexico City policy or "gag rule". The rule states that the United States will not allow its overseas aid money to be used to fund groups that carry out or provide any kind of advice or information about abortion. Hundreds of women's health organisations in the poorest nations of the world - places where maternal mortality and infant death are high - faced a tough choice. Either sign the gag rule and be silenced on abortion, or refuse and lose millions of dollars in US aid. Most refused to sign. As a result, thousands of family planning clinics across the developing world have closed their doors, making access to vital contraceptives hard to come by.

Who Lost the WMD? As the weapons hunt intensifies, so does the finger pointing

[Time Magzine 29.06.03]
A preview of the coming battle. Meeting last month at a sweltering U.S. base outside Doha, Qatar, with his top Iraq commanders, President Bush skipped quickly past the niceties and went straight to his chief political obsession: Where are the weapons of mass destruction? Turning to his Baghdad proconsul, Paul Bremer, Bush asked, "Are you in charge of finding WMD?" Bremer said no, he was not. Bush then put the same question to his military commander, General Tommy Franks. But Franks said it wasn't his job either. A little exasperated, Bush asked, So who is in charge of finding WMD? After aides conferred for a moment, someone volunteered the name of Stephen Cambone, a little-known deputy to Donald Rumsfeld, back in Washington. Pause. "Who?" Bush asked.

Un tribunal japonais a mis George Bush en examen pour "crimes de guerre"

Bush 'indicted' over war crimes

[The Japan Times: July 1, 2003]
A group of Japanese lawyers unveiled documents Monday "indicting" U.S. President George W. Bush for war crimes allegedly committed against the Afghan people since the United States-led coalition began its antiterrorism campaign in Afghanistan in October 2001. "This is an act that breaks international rules, such as the idea of (honoring) human rights, that have been formed over so many years," said Koken Tsuchiya, former president of the Japan Federation of Bar Associations and head of the 11-member prosecutors' team in the tribunal. "We decided this case has sufficient reason to be brought to court." A civic tribunal will be held in Tokyo, with the first hearing scheduled for July 21. The charges against Bush, according to the indictment, include aggression, attacks against civilians and nonmilitary facilities and the torturing and execution of prisoners. They said the indictment will be handed to the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo next week. The tribunal is being organized by Tokyo Zokei University professor Akira Maeda and others.

"To Staff Sgt. Charles Pollard, the working-class suburb of Mashtal is a 'very, very, very, very bad neighborhood.' And he sees just one solution. 'U.S. officials need to get our (ass) out of here,' said the 43-year-old reservist from Pittsburgh, who arrived in Iraq with the 307th Military Police Company on May 24. 'I say that seriously. We have no business being here. We will not change the culture they have in Iraq, in Baghdad. Baghdad is so corrupted. All we are here is potential people to be killed and sitting ducks.'"

[Sydney Morning Herald 03.07.03]
United States military commanders have ordered a halt to local elections and self-rule in provincial cities and towns across Iraq, instead installing their own hand-picked mayors and administrators, many of them former Iraqi military leaders. ... 'They give us a general,' said Bahith Sattar, a biology teacher and tribal leader in Samarra, north of Baghdad, who was a candidate for mayor until that election was cancelled last week. 'What does that tell you, eh? First of all, an Iraqi general? They lost the last three wars. They're not even good generals. And they know nothing about running a city.'

Cal Poly Student Punished for Posting Flier

[FIRE]
In the spring of 2003, a student at the California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) was found guilty of "disruption" for posting a flier - in a public area - that some students found "offensive." The public university placed unequal rights above the Bill of Rights. "Allowing some individuals to veto the protected expression of others is an unconscionable betrayal of Cal Poly's moral and legal obligations," said Thor L. Halvorssen, CEO of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). On November 12, 2002, Steve Hinkle, an undergraduate and a member of the Cal Poly College Republicans (CPCR), posted fliers advertising a speech by Mason Weaver, author of "It's OK to Leave the Plantation." In that book, Weaver argues that dependence on the government puts many African-Americans in circumstances similar to slavery. Weaver's speech was sponsored by both CPCR and the student government. The flier contained merely the title of the book, a photograph of the author (who is African-American), and the time and location of the speech. When Hinkle sought to post a flier on a public bulletin board in the Multicultural Center, several students approached him. They claimed that they were "offended" by the flier and that it was in violation of the Center's posting policy. Hinkle left to check the policy, confirming that he was indeed in compliance. While he was gone, one of the students called the university police. The officer summoned to the Center stated in writing that he was investigating a report of "a suspicious white male passing out literature of an offensive racial nature."

Hong Kong Protests Anti-Subversion Law

[The UK Guardian 03.07.03]
Hong Kong's national security law, expected to be passed in a few days, will outlaw sedition and other crimes against the state, giving police more powers and imposing life sentences for offenses. Opponents say the law will undermine freedoms of speech, press and assembly. ... Critics fear the law will bring mainland-style suppression of dissent in Hong Kong. The government insists that is not a concern and constitutionally protected liberties will not be harmed.

Des politiques et des représentants du secteur technologique ont demandé lors d'une conférence sur le spam au Royaume-Uni, une législation internationale pour lutter contre les e-mails non sollicités. Ils estiment qu'aucun texte ne sera efficace sans coopération internationale. Sur ce dossier, des divergences existent entre l'Union européenne et les Etats-Unis sur les moyens de combattre le spam. Les Etats-Unis, patrie des spammeurs, ne sont pas favorables à une législation qui rendrait l'opt-in obligatoire, comme le propose l'Europe.

A Safer System for Home PC's Feels Like Jail to Some Critics

[New York Times 03.07.03]
"Your next personal computer may well come with its own digital chaperon. ... Silicon Valley - led by Microsoft and Intel - calls the concept 'trusted computing.' ... In the new encrypted computing world, even the most mundane word-processing document or e-mail message would be accompanied by a software security guard controlling who can view it, where it can be sent and even when it will be erased. Also, the secure PC is specifically intended to protect digital movies and music from online piracy. ... 'Microsoft's use of the term "trusted computing" is a great piece of doublespeak,' said Dan Sokol, a computer engineer based in San Jose, Calif... 'What they're really saying is, " We don't trust you, the user of this computer. "'"

Is flu the next bioterror weapon?

Virus is accessible and easily transmissible through air

[MSBNC 03.07.03]
Forget anthrax and smallpox, influenza could easily be turned into the next weapon of mass destruction, scientists said Tuesday. They sounded their warning as researchers come close to completing the blueprint for the virus of the 1918 flu epidemic that killed up to 40 million people globally. 'Taken together with the fact that influenza virus is readily accessible and may be causing more deaths than previously suspected, the possibility for genetic engineering and aerosol transmission suggests an enormous potential for bioterrorism,' the University of Texas scientists said.
