Oh what a lovely war on terror it's been for Halliburton Halliburton, the world's largest military private contractor, has made at least $8bn (£4.3bn) in war-torn Iraq - doing everything from washing American troops' laundry to setting up vital oil supplies. Now, a critically well-placed army employee says contracts were unfairly awarded to Halliburton, whose chief executive used to be US Vice-President Dick Cheney.

Angry Arab on mainstream US Media a woman on Fox News, asked me: do you believe the US was the "great Satan?" What do you say to that? What do you say when you are somebody who does not believe in God or in Satan, and have to respond to such an idiotic question? How can you respond to that? I said to her, that you will never find me speaking this kind of language that is used by Iran and its supporters? And she came to say, but "did you not oppose the war in Afghanistan"? What kind of (il)logical leap is that? I said how did you go from here to there? She did not even see why I was shocked. I came to realize I was being invited to showcase "an angry Arab" so to speak.

The Wilhelm Scream A series of short painful screams performed by an actor were recorded in 1951 for the Warner Brother's film "Distant Drums." They were used for a scene where a man is bitten and dragged underwater by an alligator. The recording was archived into the studio's sound effects library -- and it was used in many of their films since. "Star Wars" Sound Designer Ben Burtt tracked down the scream recording - which he named "Wilhelm" after a character who let out the same scream in the film "Charge at Feather River." Ben has adopted the scream as sort of a personal sound signature, and has included it in many of the films he has worked on. He and a small circle of sound effects people, including myself and Richard Anderson, continue the crusade to keep Wilhelm alive. The Wilhelm Scream continues to be heard in new films every year

Independent Press Was a Target in Iraq by Danny Schechter. On March 8, 2003, 12 days before the invasion, Kate Aidie, then a war correspondent for the BBC, said on RTE radio in Ireland that she was told by Pentagon officials "that any [satellite] uplinks by journalists would be fired on" by coalition aircraft. What they were doing was creating an environment of intimidation and threat. This was a ploy to ensure that the reporters who did go to Iraq without Pentagon cooperation would be blamed when anything happened.

Face up to the facts on the ground writes Karma Nabulsi, Arab Media Watch advisor, research fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford, and former PLO representative. Far from bolstering a serious peace process, Tony Blair's Middle East conference in London today could even make things worse. The "international donor" crowd, who have been invited to London to encourage the Palestinian authority to reform itself, have an expression to sum up the utter disaster of the failed project to create a state in Palestine during the Oslo process years of 1993 to 2003: "facts on the ground". This is a euphemism for Israeli occupation policies that killed Oslo and have come close to destroying the possibility of a two-state solution - territorial expansion into occupied Palestine by settlement expansion, by road and infrastructure construction and, more recently, by building the separation wall inside the West Bank.
