Police counter-terrorist units in the U.K. are now monitoring
nursery-age kids for signs of Islamic extremist sympathies, The Times
reports. Not sure how that works: Do they demand all foreign
occupations end before they'll eat their veggies, or what?

 "I do hope that you will tell me about
persons, of whatever age, you think may have been radicalised or be
vulnerable to radicalisation...I will report back any
information or intelligence which may suggest someone is a terrorist,
or is planning to be one or to support others." - police email to community groups.

 

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
