State Repression
Jeff Free Luers, Santa Cruz IMC

By now everyone knows about the arrests and indictments handed down to 11 
people charged with ELF actions. The SHAC 7 have been convicted on all 
counts for maintaining a website. Rod Coronado has been arrested for 
explaining how he committed his arsons. Activists have been arrested in 
Sacramento charged with thought crime. Not to mention the various Grand Jury 
investigations around the country. Like it or not, the radical movement has 
found itself in the middle of a war. The ELF, ALF, anarchists and other 
radicals have been declared the number one threat to the state. The FBI 
devotes more time and energy to activists than it does Al-Qaeda.

Cocaína No, Coca Sí
Chellis Glendinning, AlterNet

A journey to Bolivia to explore the mystery of coca -- and launch a campaign 
to bring it to the United States -- has an unexpected conclusion.

The Poor Man's Air Force: A History of the Car Bomb (Part 1)
Mike Davis, TomDispatch

On a warm September day in 1920, a few months after the arrest of his 
comrades Sacco and Vanzetti, a vengeful Italian anarchist named Mario Buda 
parked his horse-drawn wagon near the corner of Wall and Broad Streets, 
directly across from J. P. Morgan Company. He nonchalantly climbed down and 
disappeared, unnoticed, into the lunchtime crowd. A few blocks away, a 
startled postal worker found strange leaflets warning: "Free the Political 
Prisoners or it will be Sure Death for All of You!" They were signed: 
"American Anarchist Fighters." The bells of nearby Trinity Church began to 
toll at noon. When they stopped, the wagon -- packed with dynamite and iron 
slugs -- exploded in a fireball of shrapnel.

A History of the Car Bomb (Part 2)
Mike Davis, TomDispatch

Gunboat diplomacy had been defeated by car bombs in Lebanon, but the Reagan 
administration and, above all, CIA Director William Casey were left 
thirsting for revenge against Hezbollah. "Finally in 1985," according to the 
Washington Post's Bob Woodward in Veil, his book on Casey's career, "he 
worked out with the Saudis a plan to use a car bomb to kill [Hezbollah 
leader] Sheikh Fadlallah who they determined was one of the people behind, 
not only the Marine barracks, but was involved in the taking of American 
hostages in Beirut. It was Casey on his own, saying, 'I'm going to solve the 
big problem by essentially getting tougher or as tough as the terrorists in 
using their weapon -- the car bomb.'"
