Over 40 years of “war on drugs”… What changed?

• February, 2012

‘Will anything sensible be done?’ asked Gore Vidal about the drug war, 40 years ago. So far, there’s no sign. Last week Tom Chivers posted a blog in which he observed that Portugal has recorded a fifty per cent drop in “problem drug users”, since they decriminalised all drugs. Will our government take note and act accordingly? Don’t be silly. In 1970 – half a lifetime ago – Gore Vidal wrote in The New York Times: “It is possible to stop most drug addiction in

• December, 2011

Press For Truth Presents Into The Fire World leaders and activists from around the world gathered for the G20 Summit.

Computer Virus Hits U.S. Drone Fleet

• October, 2011

A computer virus has infected the cockpits of America’s Predator and Reaper drones, logging pilots’ every keystroke as they remotely fly missions over Afghanistan and other warzones. The virus, first detected nearly two weeks ago by the military’s Host-Based Security System, has not prevented pilots at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada from flying their missions overseas. Nor have there been any confirmed incidents of classified information being lost or sent to an outside source. But the virus has resisted multiple efforts to remove it

We’ve built a flying saucer, boasts Iran

• April, 2011

(even if it does look like it belongs in a 1950s B-movie) It’s not clear how far or how high it can fly – or even how big it is and what makes it take off. But an aircraft created by scientists in Iran is, they claim, the world’s first flying saucer. Called the Zohal – or Saturn in English – it said the unmanned spaceship is designed for ‘aerial imaging’ but added it can be used for ‘various missions’.

Obama could kill fossil fuels overnight with… thorium!

• March, 2011

If Barack Obama were to marshal America’s vast scientific and strategic resources behind a new Manhattan Project, he might reasonably hope to reinvent the global energy landscape and sketch an end to our dependence on fossil fuels within three to five years. We could then stop arguing about wind mills, deepwater drilling, IPCC hockey sticks, or strategic reliance on the Kremlin. History will move on fast. Muddling on with the status quo is not a grown-up policy. The International Energy Agency says the world must

Hitler’s secret flying saucers

• January, 2011

Article:: Did the Führer plan to attack London and New York in UFOs? As Hitler’s armies began to crumble on fronts as far apart as Stalingrad and North Africa, he turned in increasing desperation to his scientists to create a war-winning super-weapon. Some, like the V2 rockets and the first jet fighters, saw action but came too late to halt defeat. Others were so outrageously ambitious that they never got past the drawing board. The idea of building flying saucers to bomb London and even
