Carl Boggs, The Crime of Empire. Rogue Superpower and World Domination

Carl Boggs, The Crime of EmpirePluto, London- New York 2010, p. 291, L 14,99
By Ludwig Watzal


Successive governments of the United States of America like to designate other countries, whose leaders they do not like, "rogue states“. Noam Chomsky showed in „Rogue States“ that this designation does not apply to countries such as Iraq but to the United States itself. According to him, the American superpower fulfills all the characteritics of such an entity. The U. S. and its "junior partner“, the United Kingdom, made Iraq a cartoon of an  "outlaw nation“ that threatens the entire world, and Saddam Hussein the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.

The Decolonization of Northern Ireland

Northern Irelandby Francis A. Boyle
Professor of International Law


Introduction

Historically, the British government has been quite successful at defining the situation in Northern Ireland in accordance with its own national self-interests as it sees fit.  It has spent an enormous amount of resources on conveying to the world news media why its particular approach to the problem--whatever it might be at that particular moment in time--is the only correct approach.  I would submit, however, that there is certainly another way of looking at the situation in Northern Ireland.  That other way of analyzing this conflict is from the perspective of international law, and in particular the United Nations Charter.  Therefore, it is my task here to describe what I believe should be the appropriate policy of the world community of states toward the situation in Northern Ireland in accordance with the requirements of international law.

The Famine Was Genocide

Irish FamineBy Francis Boyle

Some controversy has surrounded the use of the word "genocide" with regard to the Great Irish Famine of 150 years ago.  But this controversy has its source in an apparent misunderstanding of the meaning of genocide.  No, the British government did not inflict on the Irish the abject horrors of the Nazi Holocaust.  But the definition of "genocide" reaches beyond such ghastly behavior to encompass other reprehensible acts designed to destroy a people.
