LA DATE DU JOUR

J'ai jamais aimé les 1er septembre... à raison :

1er Septembre 1888

Le cadavre de Mary Ann Nichols est découvert dans une ruelle de Londres. C'est la première victime de "Jack l'éventreur".

1er Septembre 1939

A 1h du matin, Reinhard Heydrich, général Nazi, lance l'opération "Boite de conserve" qui consiste à faire attaquer un poste de radio allemand par des faux commandos polonais (des bagnards allemands déguisés en soldats polonais) afin de donner un argument à Hitler pour envahir la Pologne. C'est chose faite, dans la journée... la deuxième guerre mondiale commence.

1er Septembre 1941

Le gouvernement nazi décrète que tous les juifs du 3è Reich doivent porter une étoile jaune afin d'être identifiables facilement. En novembre de la même année, à la conférence de Wannsee près de Berlin, il sera décidé de les exterminer dans des camps.

1er Septembre 1968

L'ami de Jacques Chirac et du Général de Gaulle, Muammar Qaddafi lance "Operation Jérusalem", un coup d'état militaire qui le porte au pouvoir en Libye.

1er Septembre 1983

Le vol Korean Air 007 se déporte de sa trajectoire au dessus de la presqu'île de Kamchatka. Deux MIG soviétiques abattent le Boeing RC-135 au moment où il entre dans l'espace aérien de l'URSS, tuant les 269 passagers.

NEW BLOW TO GOVERNMENT ON GM FOOD AS PUBLIC DEBATE CONFIRMS SCEPTICISM

[The Independent 18 July 2003]
The leading academic charged with overseeing the Government's public opinion exercise on the introduction of genetically modified crops admitted yesterday that there was widespread scepticism about their benefits. The conclusion of Professor Malcolm Grant, chairman of the National GM debate, which ends today after more than 450 public meetings, will be another blow to Tony Blair's determined support for GM crops and food.

INFORMATIONS GENERALES

L'incessante fuite en avant du nationalisme corse

[LE MONDE | 17.07.03 ]
C'est dire l'ampleur de l'échec et l'immensité du gâchis. L'échec est d'abord celui du nationalisme, même si la liste est longue des maladresses, barbouzeries et manipulations des différents gouvernements. Après trente ans de lutte contre le pouvoir central, il n'est que temps pour le nationalisme de se repenser comme mouvement : force est de constater que les "organisations politico-militaires" , en dehors de la préservation du littoral, tournent à vide. Il n'y a évidemment pas de solution militaire, et le corpus idéologique des clandestins est incroyablement mince : des slogans remâchés des années 70, dans une langue de bois lourdement anti-impérialiste.
C'est que les différents FLNC, en dépit de la phraséologie, ne sont pas des mouvements de guérilla. Gérard Chaliand avait écrit un peu rudement que le FLNC "mimait" les mouvements de libération, et que son avenir était scellé. "Le destin de ces petits groupes (corses) peut être divers, mais en général il est de piétiner ou d'être progressivement liquidé à moins que le mouvement ne s'autodétruise par crises internes nées de l'impasse" (Terrorismes et guérillas, Flammarion).

5-MINUTE VIDEO OF GEORGE W. BUSH ON THE MORNING OF 9/11

[The Memory Hole - 28.08.03]
This footage, obtained and presented exclusively by The Memory Hole, shows President Bush sitting in a Florida classroom for 5 minutes after he was told that the second Twin Tower has been hit and that America was being attacked. A truncated version of this footage that has been available online since June 2002 shows Bush for only 2 minutes, 10 seconds after being told. This new footage more than doubles this length of time.

BIG MAC = DROGUE

BURGERS ARE AS ADDICTIVE AS DRUGS

[Sunday Times - Juillet 2003]
Deux études médicales arrivent à la même conclusion : les hamburgers et la nourriture fast-food sont aussi addictives que l'héroïne et la cocaïne. Selon l'équipe de la Rockfeller University (New York), la consommation d'aliments saturés en graisse et en sucres modifie l'activité biomoléculaire du cerveau, de la même manière que les drogues dures. Les consommateurs assidus sont rendus dépendants et ont d'énormes difficultés à revenir à un régime sain. Plus on s'expose tôt à ces produits, plus les cas d'obésité sont nombreux. A l'université du Wisconsin, l'expérience a été menée sur des rats, qui sont eux aussi devenus accros aux graisses et aux sucres. Ces études contredisent donc les affirmations de Mc Donald's ou Kentucky Fried Chicken, pour qui il "relève de la responsabilité personnelle" de s'alimenter chez eux. Et pourraient encourager des actions légales de masse.

Staline avait essayé de faire assassiner John Wayne

STALIN ORDERED JOHN WAYNE MURDERED

[Independent Online 29.07.03]
Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin was so outraged by the anti-communistic attitude of film star John Wayne that he tried to have him assassinated. A new biography of the American icon - John Wayne: The Man Behind the Myth by British writer and actor Michael Munn - says there were several attempts in the late 1940s and early 1950s to kill the man known to movie audiences worldwide as 'The Duke.' ... The book says the Soviet plots were cancelled after Stalin's death in 1953 by his successor Nikita Krushchev who was a fan of the larger-than-life star of more than 100 films.

Le député Bill Janklow, partisan du "tout-répressif" risque de se retrouver en prison...
les autres prisoniers en salivent déjà d'impatience...

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

[Sierra Times 27.08.03]
Two Saturdays ago, en route to his nominal home in Brandon, Congressman Bill Janklow broadsided a motorcycle driven by Randolph E. Scott of Minnesota. Janklow ran a stopsign at a highway intersection at high speed and in broad daylight, striking Scott, who had the right of way. Scott sustained fatal injuries and was apparently killed instantly. ...
If possible, Janklow will use his evil political empire to arrange to have absolutely no charges filed against him. On the off chance that some shred of the 'criminal justice' system in South Dakota operates as it was intended, Janklow will use his empire to have the charges reduced from the obvious criminal charge of manslaughter to something civil. ...
The one thing that Janklow will never allow to come to pass is what would happen to any other South Dakotan: be sent to prison, probably for the remainder of his life. If Janklow steps into any of South Dakota's prisons, he'll be confronted with individuals that his evil political empire put there. Some of them will wish to exact revenge. Janklow's life expectancy in a South Dakota prison could be measured in days - perhaps hours. No doubt his fellow inmates would introduce him to a wide range of new sexual experiences immediately prior to shuffling off his mortal coil."

THE GLOBE CANNOT AFFORD A FIRST-WORLD CHINA

[CNN 16.07.03]
China's ambitious economic growth plans are environmentally unachievable because the world does not have enough resources to allow its 1.3 billion people to become Western-style consumers, a U.N. official has said. ... if China had the same density of private cars as, for example Germany, it would have to produce 650 million vehicles - a target that environmentalists say the world's supply of metal and oil would be unable to sustain.

LA CRISE DU PROJET MONDIALISTE ET LA NOUVELLE ÉCONOMIE SELON G. W. BUSH

[Par Walden Bello - ATTAC Info]
Le capitalisme érode en permanence en l'homme et en la femme à la fois l'être de nature (la créature) et l'être de culture (le citoyen), et en même temps qu'il les draine de leur énergie vitale par le travail, il leur façonne des consciences réglées pour ne convenir qu'à un seul rôle : celui de consommateur. Le capitalisme a de nombreuses « dynamiques », mais l'une des plus destructrices pour l'environnement est la loi de Says, selon laquelle la satisfaction créée sa propre demande. Le capitalisme est une machine à fabriquer de la demande, qui transforme la nature vivante en biens de consommation morts, la richesse de la nature en capital mort.

La religion envahit la politique :

TONY BLAIR IS AIMING TO PUT RELIGION RIGHT AT THE CENTRE OF GOVERNMENT

[The Observer 03.08.03]
"Tony Blair knows it is one of the most delicate of subjects. When asked about it he squirms and tries to change to a more comfortable line of inquiry. But quietly the Prime Minister is putting religion at the centre of the New Labour project, reflecting his own deeply felt beliefs that answers to most questions can be found in the Bible. The Observer can reveal that Blair is to allow Christian organisations and other 'faith groups' a central role in policy-making in a decisive break with British traditions that religion and government should not mix. The Prime Minister, who this weekend becomes the longest continually serving Labour Prime Minister in history, has set up a ministerial working group in the Home Office charged with injecting religious ideas 'across Whitehall'. One expert on the relationship between politics and religion described the move as a 'blow to secularism.'"

DEREGULATION IS THE MAIN CULPRIT FOR BLACKOUTS

[HardNews Août 2003]
The underlying cause of last week's Northeast American power blackouts seems pretty clear. If you run a network - any network - at or near capacity for long enough, it will eventually bite you in the arse. That was the warning to the US Congress two years ago. Why was the network running so close to capacity? Because, as this story points out: "Deregulation of the power industry has left energy companies with insufficient incentive to invest in new transmission lines or enough generating capacity." Frankly, the model hasn't worked, and the Bush administration - especially after those secret policy meetings with Enron - has been there long enough to own the problem.

MASS GRAVE IN BOSNIA YIELDS 270 BODIES

[networks.org 01.09.03]
Forensic experts have recovered the remains of 270 victims in five weeks of digging at Bosnia's largest known mass grave and expect to find more as they burrow deeper, officials said Thursday. The mass grave, with a surface area about the size of a tennis court, was opened last month on Crni Vrh hill, near the border with Serbia and about 50 miles northeast of Sarajevo. It is the 14th mass grave found in Bosnia this year.

"No one could underestimate the pain suffered by the Peruvian people during the 20-year-long guerrilla war with Maoist rebels that ended three years ago. But it turns out the death toll was close to 70,000 - more than twice as high as previous official estimates. ... 'I don't regret anything. If I had to use the same anti-subversive strategy again today, I would apply it without hesitation,' said retired army Gen. Clemente Noel, who commanded forces in the Ayacucho region in 1983, when some of the worst army massacres occurred."

INCOMPATIBLE COMPUTER SYSTEMS LEAVE TROOPS ON DUTY TOO LONG

[KNSD-TV 7 San Diego 22.08.03]
"A congressional report says the Pentagon computer systems are having trouble keeping track of all members of the military. And, the report says, that flaw has hampered the activation of about 300,000 reservists since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The report by the General Accounting Office says the military services have separate computer systems and not all of them are compatible. That meant some officials had to use desktop-computer spreadsheets to call up reservists. The investigators found that having inconsistent orders on how to activate units caused problems. For example, the Pentagon lost track of some reservists who had been called to active duty, kept some on active duty longer than authorized and kept units on alert to be activated for a year or more."

[CNN 27.07.2003]
America's prison population grew again in 2002 despite a declining crime rate, costing the federal government and states an estimated $40 billion a year at a time of rampant budget shortfalls. ... About 10 percent of all black men between 25 and 29 were incarcerated last year, compared with 1.2 percent of white men and 2.4 percent of Hispanic men. Overall, the 586,700 black men in prison outnumbered both the 436,800 white males and 235,000 Hispanic males.

9-11: EPA AGENCY WAS PRESSURED INTO DECLARING NYC AIR SAFE

[MSNBC 22.08.03]
"At the White House's direction, the Environmental Protection Agency gave New Yorkers misleading assurances that there was no health risk from the debris-laden air after the World Trade Center collapse, according to an internal inquiry. President Bush 's senior environmental adviser on Friday defended the White House involvement, saying it was justified by national security. The White House 'convinced EPA to add reassuring statements and delete cautionary ones' ... 'When EPA made a Sept. 18 announcement that the air was "safe" to breathe, the agency did not have sufficient data and analyses to make the statement,' the report says, adding that the EPA had yet to adequately monitor air quality for contaminants such as PCBs, soot and dioxin. ... it wasn't until June 2002 that the EPA determined that air quality had returned to pre-Sept. 11 levels - well after respiratory ailments and other problems began to surface in hundreds of workers cleaning dusty offices and apartments."

La prison clandestine d'Israël

INSIDE ISRAEL'S SECRET PRISON

[Ha'aretz - 24.08.03]
Detainees are blindfolded and kept in blackened cells, never told where they are, brutally interrogated and allowed no visitors of any kind. Dubbed 'the Israeli Guantanamo,' it's no wonder facility 1391 officially does not exist. "The Israeli authorities have made every effort to keep its very existence secret. And even now that its existence has been revealed, the state refuses to answer the many questions of the world and of the Israeli public: Where is the facility? Who is being held there, why, and for how long? Were they tried before being locked up in Camp 1391, or are they awaiting trial? What are their conditions of incarceration? ... As far as is known, the 1391 site is the only detention facility whose detainees don't know where they are. If they ask, the warders may answer, 'on the moon,' or 'in outer space,' or 'outside the borders of Israel.' It is also the only detention facility that the state prevents the International Red Cross from visiting."

The law would prevent Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip who marry Israeli Arabs from obtaining residency permits in Israel. 'This is a racist law that decides who can live here according to racist criteria,' said Yael Stein from the Israeli rights group B'tselem.

As the bomb was detonated, cameras recorded the destruction of the car. ...

MICROSOFT FACING WORST LAWSUIT EVER

[fortune.com 15.08.03]
Microsoft suffered utter defeat at a crucial pretrial hearing in what appears to be the highest-stakes patent litigation ever - one in which a tiny company called InterTrust Technologies claims that 85% of Microsoft's entire product line infringes its digital security patents. InterTrust's engineers developed and patented what they say are key inventions in two areas: so-called digital-rights management and trusted systems. ... Though InterTrust declines to place a pricetag on the suit, it's hard to imagine the company settling now for any sum that does not have a 'B' in it. InterTrust claims that its inventions cover technologies that Microsoft has been weaving into its Windows XP operating system, Office XP Suite, Windows Media Player, Xbox videogame console, and .NET networked computing platform, to name just a few."

For the second time this year, Microsoft is the source of a major internet security event. First was Slammer/Sapphire in January that seriously impacted networks and corporations around the world, including shutting down ATM machines at some large banks. And now, we've got MSBlaster taking advantage of a years-old vulnerability in Microsoft Windows operating systems. But unlike Slammer that only targeted servers, this one goes after desktop computers as well - meaning that ninety percent of the world's computers are potential targets and victims this week. Consumer desktops are significantly more plentiful than corporate ones but less-protected against viruses, worms, and other attacks. As low-hanging fruit goes, they're a perfect target of opportunity for cyber-mischief. http://www.infowarrior.org/articles/2003-01.html
