Like all new prime ministers — and we are in a position in Australia to make lots of comparisons — Scott Morrison has been rifling about for some of those "cut through" phrases that will help both define him to voters and define the task the Government faces to its members.

Gandhi taught that nonviolence does not mean passivity. No. It is the most daring, creative, and courageous way of living, and it is the only hope for our world. Nonviolence is an active way of life which always rejects violence and killing, and instead applies the force of love and truth as a means to transform conflict and the root causes of conflict.

Nonviolence demands creativity. It pursues dialogue, seeks reconciliation, listens to the truth in our opponents, rejects militarism, and allows God's spirit to transform us socially and politically.

This image is a composite mischief by Gus, using a brilliant cartoon by Bill Leak, before he joined the merde-och media and went downhill. In 1994, Leak used his massive skills to illustrate the 50th birthday bashing "bash" of the lovely behaviour of the Liberal (CONservative) Party: Howard killing Peacock and vice versa, Fraser like a snooty old kook, MacMahon like a baby in a high chair, Downer behaving like a beautiful pig as usual... etc.

Finding a way out of the war against Syria

 

by Thierry Meyssan

 

The White House is unable to extricate itself from the war in Syria. President Trump is hindered both by the self-proclaimed « stable state » (according to the anonymous op ed in the New York Times), which continues to pursue the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski strategy, and by the reactivated ambitions of his Israëli, French, British and Turkish allies. The logic of these interests could displace the war instead of resolving it.
