Two historical sketches:
* GN Online: Empires rise and fall - |Since U.S. President George W. Bush seems determined to make America a full-fledged empire, he should start familiarising himself with the history of the world's greatest empires. Bush would be well served to look at the lessons of the rise and evolution of great empires such as the Greek, Roman, Persian and Muslim."
* The new Moguls: Marching to Baghdad - "The heroic resistance of Iraqis against the most powerful military coalition in human history is nothing short of extraordinary — and completely unexpected on the part of those who began this immoral campaign. Given the vastly unequal resources involved, two weeks of unremitting resistance is a long time, an object of awe and inspiration to small, oppressed nations everywhere.
But with or without strongmen of dubious character like Saddam Hussein, Iraq's history is full of heroic resistance fuelled by national pride."

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