"A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true."

Reading a news item, Military Spending Called too High, on Polaris Institute's report entitled Breaking Rank (PDF). In it Steven Staples is reported to haved described Canada's defence policy, which dates back to the 1994 white paper, as "woefully outdated and really mired in Cold War thinking."
[Reading this reminded me of a set of letters hosted by MediaLens: George Monbiot Responds on Iraq and 'Just War'. (That's my local copy of their documents.)]

Other items by Staples:

  • After 911: The military-corporate Agenda
  • Military Spending vs. Social Programs
  • Notice of new video: WTO and the Global War System. Some of this is available online from PeaceWire's video page
  • International Network on Disarmament and Globalization's Peace Wire




    Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
