events of Sept 11 2001, Politicians, Activists/Academics and People
all over the World continue to claim/debate whether this is a
War against Terrorism, a War against the anybody criticizing America, a War between Good and Evil, a War against Pro-Israel American Zionist control of the US Congress, a War
between a religion and the so called 'civilized' West, the poor against the rich, a War
against American Foreign Policy etc. etc. etc.
but perhaps more than Anything, it is a
Battle between the Powerful and the Weak, Everywhere....
…And no doubt one of the troubles of a Government which has to deal with people who of set purpose and principle defy a particular law, is to make out which are martyrs and which humbugs. And this is a matter of more consequence than may at first appear. For it is a very dangerous thing to allow people by mere cunning and obstinacy and self-advertisement in breaking the law to rise into public fame and undermine that fabric of mutual agreement which holds society together; a nation in which any well-organized rebels could safely defy the law would soon almost cease to be a free nation.
And on the other hand, a nation in which the Government seems to be forcing men into sin against their conscience, so that good people instinctively respect the prisoner and condemn the judge, has already ceased to be a free nation.
You remember the old words of Gamaliel: "Lest haply ye be found to be fighting against god." It is a serious thing for any organ of material power to be found fighting against the human soul. By Prof. Gilbert Murray
Persons in power should be very careful how they deal with a man who cares nothing for sensual pleasure, nothing for riches, nothing for comfort or praise or promotion, but is simply determined to do what he believes to be right. He is a dangerous and uncomfortable enemy - because his body, which you can always conquer, gives you so little purchase upon his soul. Mahatma Gandhi

War on Afghanistan
Is it right for the superpower like America together with other nations like UK, Canada and Australia to gang-up and put a new regime in a third world country like Afghanistan. A country where most of the population is in fear of starvation let alone defending themselves against cruise missiles, 'smart' bombs and 'special' forces. Millions of Afghans face starvation.
