14 Nov 2001

It was most recently activated during the 1992 riots in Los Angeles, the 1999 WTO meetings in Seattle, the 2000 Philadelphia Republican National Convention, and the 2000 Democratic National Convention in L.A. Well over 100 concentration camps have been designated and are maintained for use under Operation Garden Plot. With the sweeping new police powers ushered in since 9-11, and the possible more to repeal or amend the Posse Comitatus act, the Federal Government is now taking aim at dissent at home rather than terrorism abroad.

Legal Aspects of the War on Terror
14 Nov 2001
A frequent theme in the war against terrorism has been the reference to the US and her allies as the "civilized world". The rest of the world is then classified into two camps; firstly, those who, whilst not themselves part of the "civilized world", are, to quote Tony Blair's reference to the Saudis, "good and dependable friends of the civilized world". Then, to use the parlance of the Romans, the barbarians - the lawless "other" who want to destroy civilization.
