After the bombings that killed and maimed so horribly at the Boston Marathon, our country’s politics and mass media are awash in heartfelt compassion — and reflexive “doublethink,” which George Orwell described as willingness “to forget any fact that has become inconvenient.”

Peace activist Carlos Arredondo has come to be known as “the man in the hat” and widely described as a hero for a viral image of him in a cowboy hat pinching the severed artery of a bloodied, wheelchair-bound victim in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. Arredondo is no stranger to tragedy: He [...]

The horrific bombings of the Boston Marathon produced inspiring images of a spirited, brave Boston refusing to be cowed. Some spectators surged forward toward the danger to apply tourniquets, offer first aid, share blankets, and later to give blood, for the victims.

Hace 65 años: Un genocidio que nos sigue afectando
Internacionales

Miércoles, 11 de agosto del 2010

Pocas horas después de presentarlo a la prensa, como bandera de la defensa de la humanidad y de condena a los crímenes cometidos contra ella, EEUU, uno de los firmantes, con la complicidad o silencio de los demás, arrojaba una bomba atómica a Nagasaki. Dos días antes había arrojado otra a Hiroshima... Los nazis encerraban a grupos de judíos y los asesinaban con gas. El Estado norteamericano transformó en gas a decenas de miles de japoneses... hombres, mujeres, niños, ancianos. No es genocidio....

Estados Unidos, Israel y Rusia siguen con bombas de racimo
Internacionales

Miércoles, 4 de agosto del 2010

El tratado contra las bombas de racimo firmado en Oslo en 2008 entró en vigor ayer sin que dos de los países que más las han utilizado, Estados Unidos e Israel, y otras potencias militares como Rusia asuman el compromiso de desmantelarlas o no usarlas. Se calcula que estos artefactos de efecto retardado e indiscriminado han matado ya a unas 100.000 personas desde que los nazis empezaron a usarlas en los años 30. Aproximadamente un tercio de ellas eran niños. Por citar algunos casos recientes, las bombas de racimo o Cluster se usaron en Kosovo en 1999, en Afganistán desde 2001, en Irak desde 2003 y en la invasión israelí del Libano en 2006, así como en las guerras desarrolladas en países africanos como Sudán y Sierra Leona.

Cluster Bombs and Civilian Lives: Efficient Killing, Profits and Human Rights
Internacionales

Jueves, 8 de julio del 2010

Cluster bombs are in the news again, thanks to a recent report from Amnesty International. The human rights agency has confirmed that 35 women and children were killed following the latest US attacks on an alleged al-Qaeda hideout in Yemen. Initially, there were attempts to bury the story, and Yemen officially denied that civilians were killed as a result of the December 17 attack on al-Majala in southern Yemen. However, it has been simply impossible to conceal what is now considered the largest loss of life in one single US attack in the country. If the civilian casualties were indeed a miscalculation on the part of the US military, there should no longer be any doubt about the fact that cluster munitions are far too dangerous a weapon to be utilized in war. Yet some countries still refuse to ban their production and use.

by Scott Canon October 22, 2009 Even as Washington emphasizes walking softly to pry Iran away from its nuclear ambitions, the Pentagon is speeding the manufacture of its own big stick. This month, the Defense Department awarded $51.9 million to McDonnell Douglas to more quickly adapt a 30,000-pound bunker buster to the B-2 stealth bomber. The GBU-57 bomb and [...]

Religion is not the primary motivation of suicide bombers
Análisis

Martes, 22 de septiembre del 2009

by Riaz Hassan September 11, 2009 Suicide bombing attacks have become a weapon of choice among terrorist groups because of their lethality and ability to cause mayhem and fear. Though they are depressing, the almost-daily news reports of deaths caused by suicide attacks rarely explain what motivates the attackers. Between 1981 and 2006, 1,200 suicide attacks made [...]
