As coalition forces continue to be bogged down in Iraq, the consequences of that catastrophic war begin to make themselves felt. The Asian Development Bank has issued a warning about the collapse of the once mighty dollar, as the greenbacks roll off the printing presses to cover the one or two trillion dollar cost of the war. If the dollar goes, can the pound be far behind?
Meanwhile, at home, Blair works to extinguish what remains of our democracy. In a startling illustration of chaos theory, the discovery of a dead swan, of suspect origin, triggers the displacement of the trusty old, British cabinet by the shadowy, appropriately named, COBRA. Parliamentary democracy is already being effectively abolished by Blairís Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill.
Evidently, despite the mess they have brought about, or, rather, because of it, the War Party strives to hold power at any cost. They have a trump card,.....war; and a new target,... Iran. Seymour Herschís recent article in The New Yorker confirms developments already familiar to our readership. The bad news is that the Bush regime plans to use nuclear weapons: the good news is that the military are vehemently opposing this.
We need to create a citizenís movement to tilt the balance against the escalation of the war. To this end Iran Solidarity has organised a speaking tour by the prominent Iranian academic and antiwar activist Professor Abbas Edalat, founder of The Campaign against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran.He recently returned form a speaking tour in the USA where he spoke outside the UN headquarters on the 18th March anti-war demonstration He is uniquely qualified to explain the background and unfolding developments of this crisis.
plz pray,
