Since 2001, the ‘war on terror’ has seen a ratcheting up of powers available to police and intelligence agencies and a series of new Terrorism Acts. Counter-terrorism budgets have ballooned while other sectors have been devastated by austerity. The extraordinary nature of these measures means that they often bypass the standard legal principles of the regular criminal justice system.

‘K’ Metamorphoses into ‘G’ By William Bowles

19 February 2019 — Investigating Imperialism

[I think it’s time to republish a piece I wrote 15 years ago, in 2004, though clearly very few took notice of it then, will it be any different this time? I doubt it, it’s probably already too late to do anything about it. What the Labour government initiated in 2004 has now reached, not only fruition but is now sweeping the ‘democratic’ West as the crisis of capital intensifies and opposition to neoliberalism intensifies. I call it what it is, Fascism. Maybe not the Fascism of Hitler or Mussolini, there are no jackboots, they don’t need them this time, they have built the corporate-security state, a state that has us all on file, a state that records our movements, a state that knows what we read, who we see,  a state that now works in tandem with its corporate masters just as Mussolini’s Fascism did, a state that makes Orwell’s 1984 amateurish by comparison.  Reading through it, I don’t think I need to alter one word.

11 November 2018 — The Syria Times – Global Research

This fact is clarified by Canadian author Mark Taliano, in his book entitled ‘Voices from Syria’ with a view to shedding light on the truth, refuting the lies, with a view to reaching global peace and destroying the cancer of terrorism.

This interpretation is based on a fallacy. Al Qaeda was created by the CIA in the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war. Al Qaeda is an instrument of US intelligence, a so-called “intelligence asset”.
