75 Years After Pearl Harbor, The Threat Of Internment Returns

Rachel Pistol | Posted 01.01.2017 | UK
Rachel Pistol

There has been a huge rise in prejudice and fear during the recent US presidential election. Just as after Pearl Harbor all Japanese were seen as the enemy, since 9/11 all Muslims have been viewed as enemies because of the actions of Islamic extremists. This is despite the fact that the number of deaths caused in America by gun crime is significantly greater than the number caused by jihadi terrorism.

In Florida, The State That Likes To Swing, Time Is Running Out For Clinton And Trump

Anna Foster | Posted 14.10.2016 | UK Politics

Florida likes to swing. Think of it as the Glenn Miller of US states, gliding to the left, shimmying to the right, always keeping politicians guessing which way it'll turn until the very last moment. For Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the Sunshine State represents opportunity.

Republicans For Hillary

As Donald Trump fails to get members of his own party to vote for him are we starting to see the beginnings of a landslide victory for Clinton in November? With a fractured and divided party that are not able to come together behind their candidate, the situation looks like it can only benefit the Democratic nominee whom I am sure will welcome the endorsements of any former Republican Presidents with open arms.

Seven Ways Trump Follows in the Footsteps of Ronald Reagan

Simon Phillips-Hughes | Posted 27.04.2017 | UK Politics
Simon Phillips-Hughes

As we enter the general election Trump will increasingly resemble Reagan in any case, for the same negative claims made against him: that he is an extremist, that the White House is no place for a low-brow entertainer, that he is too unpopular with too many. The revival of the US probably rests on how the people react to that view, just as they did some thirty-five years ago.

UK Plc Shutting Up Shop: A Cheerless Time for Human Rights Activists Around the World

Neil Durkin | Posted 09.10.2016 | UK Politics
Neil Durkin

In the 19th century it was British democracy protesters being cut down, now it's Saudi bloggers and protesters being lashed and facing public decapitation. With the Foreign Secretary wanting to raise a cheer for British business in places like Iran and China, I think jailed activists around the world are in for a cheerless time.

Welcome Back to the War Against Terror

Richard Howitt | Posted 29.04.2015 | UK Politics
Richard Howitt

As this week's dialogue takes place, Europe must reaffirm that short-cutting human rights through short-term security responses alone, can never be a long-term answer to the terrorist threat. The war against terror may indeed have returned. But the difference this time is that it's a war which Pakistan appears to have declared against itself.

Will 2015 finally see the publication of the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war? Certainly not this side of the election it now seems. Why is it taking so long? ... Sadly there is no single truth, no burning dossier, no transcript that will allow closure on the Iraq war.

Torture Is Torture - Regardless of Who Does It

James Snell | Posted 14.02.2015 | UK
James Snell

Some of these horrors make agonising reading - but it is incorrect to say that they defy description. In the cold, expressionless language of the Senate report, even blunt, mechanical phrases can contain the key to understanding a world of pain. 'Rectal feeding' is one. 'Stress position' is another. Through reams of inert prose, an appalling picture of abuse is built up and solidified.

Whether he fell on his sword or was pushed, Chuck Hagel's departure is the latest in a series of foreign policy missteps. It leaves the administration bereft of a Veteran Secretary of Defense at the most dangerous time in recent memory.
