Global roundup with Martin Summers: A Turkish court convicted 326 military officers, including the former air force and navy chiefs, of plotting to overthrow the nation’s Islamic-based government in 2003, in a case that has helped curtail the military’s hold on politics. A panel of three judges at the court on Istanbul’s outskirts initially sentenced former air force chief Ibrahim Firtina, former navy chief Ozden Ornek and former army commander Cetin Dogan to life imprisonment but later reduced the sentence to a 20-year jail term because the plot had been unsuccessful, state-run TRT television reported. The three were accused of masterminding the plot. The dramatic conclusion to the case was entirely unreported in the UK national press. The Dark Art of ‘Conflict Initiation’: Patrick Clawson of the influential neo-con Washington Institute for Near East Studies openly suggests the US should provoke Iran into war. Just one in 50 victims of America’s deadly drone strikes in Pakistan are terrorists – while the rest are innocent civilians, a new report claimed today. The authoritative joint study, by Stanford and New York Universities, concludes that men, women and children are being terrorised by the operations ’24 hours-a-day’. And the authors lay much of the blame on the use of the ‘double-tap’ strike where a drone fires one missile – and then a second as rescuers try to drag victims from the rubble. One aid agency said they had a six-hour delay before going to the scene. 98% of Pakistan drone strikes are killing innocent people. A gross dereliction of duty: How Coalition defence cuts have left Britain terrifyingly vulnerable. Bristol land and housing co-op activist and editor of www.SpeakTruthToPower.net, Tony Crofts, discusses the acres of empty office space and compares it to Bristol’s appaling lack of housing. Discussion of how our society fails to deliver the right buildings & how office building owners can afford to leave them empty for years. Simon Bale from ISR, Churches for Work and Social Justice talks about the church is doing to address the growing social divide in Bristol and Britain, also discussing the strangely secretive process by which the new Archbishop of Canterbury is being chosen. One of the candidates was an oil industry executive until recently.
