COMMENTS ON GUEST POST BY JEFFREY STAYTON,
AUTHOR OF ” THIS SIDE OF THE RIVER”
Knowing Susan Higginbotham as the author about
Medieval history and often blogging about that period and
shortly thereafter, I was pleasantly surprised to learn about a
Guest post, referring to the American Civil war.
Guest poster is the writer Jeffrey Stayton, who wrote a novel
about the Civil War, focusing on a sort of soldiers shell shock,
His book is titled
”This side of the River”
See the Blog
Perhaps she welcomed his Guest Post because of her yet to be published
novel on the aftermath of the American Civil War ”Hanging Mary”, which
actually refers to the president Lincoln murderer William Booth
However interesting, I had some comments on Stayton’s post and approach.
For I acknowledge the suffering of soldiers because of the horrors
of war, but comparing to that, the suffering of the thousands and
sometimes 100 000 civilians is seldom counted, at least not as individuals.
Therefore I wrote the following comment under Jeffrey Stayton’s post,
for remembering everyone, that the common civilians mostly pay
the highest price in wars.
A TRAVEL TO THE PAST AND PRESENT
NELSON MANDELA ”I AM PREPARED TO DIE”/MANDELA’S STATEMENT IN THE 1964 TRIAL
I am the First Accused.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts and practised as an attorney in Johannesburg for a number of years in partnership with Oliver Tambo. I am a convicted prisoner serving five years for leaving the country without a permit and for inciting people to go on strike at the end of May 1961.
At the outset, I want to say that the suggestion made by the State in its opening that the struggle in South Africa is under the influence of foreigners or communists is wholly incorrect. I have done whatever I did, both as an individual and as a leader of my people, because of my experience in South Africa and my own proudly felt African background, and not because of what any outsider might have said.
UKRAINE: WHAT’S GOING ON AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN
Tuesday, 3 December, 2013
My Libcom piece on Ukraine, posted there this evening
Some thoughts on the protests happening in Ukraine. Things are not completely what they may seem.
The mass protests unfolding in Ukraine are raising a few eyebrows here and there, as well as the usual hyped-up talk of people’s revolt and even revolution. The eyebrows are justified. Mass demonstrations of many hundreds of thousands in the winter cold, people blockading government buildings, attacking a presidential palace and occupying the city government office, calls for president and government to resign, talk of a general strike…all in support of closer ties to the EU? It all seems a bit odd. Add to the strange brew a strong element of extreme nationalism, and the picture of a movement that is right wing, reactionary and unsupportable from a radical, libertarian communist point of view becomes even clearer. What has been going on? I think there are at least three elements to all this.
SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO PAY A HEAVY PRICE TO LIVE IN A FREE SOCIETY
The following is a transcript of the statement made by Pfc. Bradley Manning as read by David Coombs at a press conference on Wednesday after Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
WATCH VIDEO OF COOMBS STATEMENT HERE
The decisions that I made in 2010 were made out of a concern for my country and the world that we live in. Since the tragic events of 9/11, our country has been at war. We’ve been at war with an enemy that chooses not to meet us on any traditional battlefield, and due to this fact we’ve had to alter our methods of combating the risks posed to us and our way of life.
THE SADDAM HUSSEIN TRIAL AND THE RIGHT OF ANY HUMAN BEING TO A FAIR TRIAL
by Astrid Essed Saturday, Nov. 18, 2006 at 7:57 AM
Not only I object the imposed death-penalty on the former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein and two co-accused, also the trial itself didn’t meet the international standards regarding a fair trial
ISRAELI ATTACKS ON GAZA/DIRTY WAR ON THE PALESTINIAN CIVILIAN POPULATION
by Astrid Essed Saturday, Jan. 10, 2009 at 8:43 AM
By their unlawful and systematic character,combined with the blockade of Gaza, housedemolitions and extrajudicial executions, the Israeli attacks on Gaza are a dirty war against the Palestinian civilian population
JULIAN ASSANGE ARRESTED/ATTACK ON FREEDOM OF PRESS
by Astrid Essed Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2010 at 4:53 PM
The arrest case of Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks is politically motivated and therefore an attack on the freedom of press
WESTERN DIPLOMATS WALK OUT OF AHMADINEJAD SPEECH AT DURBAN II/HYPOCRISY AND VIOLATIONS
OF HUMAN RIGHTS
by Astrid Essed Friday, May. 01, 2009 at 1:18 PM
Not only the Western boycott of Durban II and the attitude on the Ahmadinejad speech lacks a fundamental respect for fundamental human rights, it is also hypocritical seeing in the light of her implicite support for the Israeli regime of occupation, letting get Israel away with human rights violations and war-crimes
