Stealing A Nation

Posted by Dave (The Void) on August 2, 2007

In this award-winning special report (56 mins), John Pilger tells the story of one of the British Empire’s most inhuman and cynical postwar crimes: the dispossession and deportation of two thousand of its citizens from their tropical island paradise, to make room for the largest American airbase outside the U.S., and the sustained conspiracy to whitewash them out of existence.

    Hi,

    I think you are doing some good work here on this blog but alot of what you are posting is already available on other wordpress blogs. I think you should check the tags before you post in future. Then if it is available elsewhere do a post and link to the site which is posting. Otherwise the blogosphere clogs up with repetition upon repetition.

    Stop trying to draw people’s attention to the finger!

    Jason,
    I don’t really see your point. An embedded clip is essentially a glorified link, but one that you can watch straight away without clicking through to another page. If I provided hyperlinks rather than embeds, all that would change would be that people would have to click through and watch the embed elsewhere – if anything drawing more attention to the “finger” with all that pissing about.
