This is from radio netherlands december 18 2005 with andy clark. they
are talking about terrorism, the terrorist... (violence vs
non-violence)
the unionist perhaps also...
"
Noam Chomsky: The Iraqi people have resisted and it's a very
impressive resistance. I'm not talking about insurgency. I'm talking
about popular, non-violent resistance under bitter conditions. There's
a labour movement forming, which is a very important one. The US
insists on keeping Saddam's bitter anti-labour laws, but the labour
movement doesn't like it. Their activists are being killed. Nobody
knows by whom, maybe by insurgents, maybe by former Baathists, maybe
by somebody else. But they're working. There's the basis of a popular
democracy being developed there, much to the horror of the occupying
forces, but it's going on and it could have very long term
consequences in their national affairs, which is why Bush and Blair
have so desperately been trying to prevent democracy and any form of
sovereignty and have been forced to back off step by step. This is
also going on with the economic arrangements. The US moved in and
immediately tried to open up the economy to foreign take-over by
imposing outrageous and in fact illegal laws for privatisation. You
know, Iraqis don't want that, they want to take control of their own
economy and resources. There's a battle going on about that."

commentblog from listeners: (<---- there is a sucint statement on
"power" and "power-tactics" at the end)

 Bulgaria withdraws infantry from Iraq
 From correspondents in Baghdad
December 27, 2005
 BULGARIA has withdrawn its entire 334-strong light infantry battalion
from Iraq, in line with plans to end its military presence there by
the end of the year, its Defence Ministry said today.

 During a Christmas trip to Iraq, US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
announced Washington would not deploy 7000 combat troops from two
brigades that would scale down troop numbers in Iraq from around the
standard level of 138,000 over the past year to around a new baseline
130,000.

did you know that two bulgarian brothers invented greek orthodoxy for
the russians and simultaneously invented cyrilic russian? this happend
waaaaaaay before color tv 1910, more like 9th century.
