Localism vs Globalism: Two World Views Collide
By Michael McCarthy

Manufacturing Dissent": The Anti-Globalization Movement Is Funded By The Corporate Elites
By Michel Chossudovsky

"Another World is Possible", but it cannot be meaningfully achieved under the present arrangement. A shake-up of the World Social Forum, of its organizational structure, its funding arrangements and leadership is required. There can be no meaningful mass movement when dissent is generously funded by those same corporate interests which are the target of the protest movement. In the words of McGeorge Bundy, president of the Ford Foundation (1966-1979),"Everything the [Ford] Foundation did could be regarded as 'making the World safe for capitalism'

Obama And West Reject Ahmadinejad's
Call For Scientific 9-11 Investigation
By Dr Gideon Polya

The 9-11 atrocity killed 3,000 people but the subsequent US-led war on Terror has killed 8 million people, the breakdown being 2.5 million (Iraq), 4.5 million (Afghanistan) and 0.8 million global opiate drug-related deaths linked to US Alliance restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry. Obama and his Western lackeys have abusively rejected Ahmadinejad's sensible call for a scientific investigation of who did 9-11, thereby making the genocidal US Alliance an accessory after the fact of the 9-11 atrocity

Gandhi's Wisdom
By Uri Avnery

Can one make peace with an opponent while hating him? Is peace possible at all without a positive attitude towards the other side?

It Is Official: The US Is A Police State
By Paul Craig Roberts

Now we know what Homeland Security (sic) secretary Janet Napolitano meant when she said on September 10: "The old view that 'if we fight the terrorists abroad, we won't have to fight them here' is just that – the old view." The new view, Napolitano said, is "to counter violent extremism right here at home."

Aafia Today, U.S. Citizens Tomorrow
By Yvonne Ridley

The Pakistani government now needs to demand the repatriation of Aafia with immediate effect. The U.S. needs to shut up, back down, and show some humility by returning the Daughter of Pakistan. And with a bit of luck, innocent U.S. citizens travelling abroad will not get caught up in the fallout of this violation of international law and human rights

Kashmir: A Time For Freedom
By Angana Chatterji

Solving The Ayodhya Tangle: Listen To A
'Low' Caste Hindu In A Faizabad Mosque
By Yoginder Sikand

As we shake hands and I am about to depart, Ram Kumar adds, 'Only if, and when, Hindus and Muslims both come to realise that Allah or Ishwar—call Him what you will—cannot be captured in a building made of stone, and that He resides in the heart of every person, in every particle of the universe, in fact, that we can finally solve the Ayodhya conflict to everyone's satisfaction.' Ram Kumar is right, of course, but, I wonder, justifiably pessimistically, will Hindus and Muslims ever arrive at that very simple realisation?

Iraq: One of History's Greatest Crimes
By Stephen Lendman

America and Britain are responsible "for exposing a whole nation to the risk of continually receiving high radioactive and toxic persistent contaminants," including DU and many others, a noxious brew leaving no one untouched and many lethally harmed.

Some Notes On The Ghastliness Of
The U.S. Government
By Javier Sethness

the largest single arms deal negotiated by the U.S. during its short but thoroughly nasty history—one that will likely meet approval, even a warm embrace—would award one of the world's most reactionary regimes with arms that could well significantly increase tensions among the various states of Southwestern Asia toward the possibility of open war

Heard And Unheard Voices From
The Kashmir Valley
By Syed Ali Mujtaba

The moral from the all the heard and unheard voices from the valley is that Kashmir is a unique problem, which requires a unique solution and this idea needs to be brainstormed, carried forward and strengthened

What Will Obama Have For Sri Lanka?
By Nilantha Ilangamuwa

Sri Lanka is under siege after the introduction of the 18th Amendment to the Constitution which dissolved term limits of the President who, by an earlier constitution, is above the law and can now dispense with the independence commissions for free & fair elections, corruption control, police and government services which was introduced by the 17th Amendment
