Baghdad Central

Center-staging the calamities of collaboration, Elliott Colla’s noir thriller exposes the moral and strategic failures of military occupation.

(JERUSALEM) - Baghdad, Iraq crossed swords Without networks of collaborators conscripted from among the ranks of the insurgency, sustained military occupations are unthinkable. Yet, no one likes to talk about collaborators—it is an unpleasant subject because collaborators are about as loved by their handlers as they are by the communities they betray.

To be sure, collaborators under military occupation consider themselves as a beneficial screen, ameliorating the worst that might happen, and at times they even embrace the new order and think of themselves as brave emissaries of the future.

An Open Letter to Soldiers with `Mental Health` Issues

You stand at the fork of two paths...

(TASMANIA, Aust.) - Soldiers and PTSD Are you a soldier or veteran who is supposed to have a 'mental health' issue such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia or PTSD? If you are, then I have some suggestions for you to consider.

My first suggestion is that you ignore any label that you have been given. For example, the term 'post-traumatic stress disorder' (PTSD) is an inaccurate and unhelpful way of labelling the appropriate, diverse and complex emotional responses that a normal human being will have to emotionally disturbing events of the type that are experienced during war.

Are US Policy Makers Really that Stupid, or are they Evil?

Is it a surprise that in a world poll this week the US was voted the biggest threat to peace in the world?

(JAMESTOWN, RI) - Obama the warmonger Are US policy makers really stupid or do they have a natural talent for creating violence and hatred? The latest world poll shows the US is considered the biggest threat to world peace and our government’s daily actions and decisions assure us of a continued “number one”.

Iraq for example, just suffered its worst year of violence since 2008 with almost 9,000 deaths in a country that is a failed state wracked with civil wars, sectarian strife, and infested with large Al Qaeda groups, all trying to impose their will and agenda on a devastated nation.
