Bush's 9/11 Foreknowledge Recalled

Daithí Mac Lochlainn | From 1789 until 1949, the U.S. Department of War was the executive military department of the United States. It later became the Department of the Army and was incorporated into the Department of Defense.

Perhaps, the DoD ought to change its name back to the "Department of War", since before, during and even after September 11th, 2001, our illustrious Schizophrenic-in-Chief has shown more interest in waging war on other countries than in defending this one.

Future (and current) servicemen and women deserve "honest labeling" for what they are joining. more...  0 Comments

History of A-bomb and Hiroshima/Nagasaki

Yusuf Al-Khabbaz | In this month are the 60th anniversaries of the American atom bombing of two Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The bombings ushered in the "nuclear age," which saw the development of ever more powerful weapons of mass destruction; it also began the "cold war," in which the United States of America and the Soviet Union squared off with their massive nuclear arsenals, at times coming to the brink of nuclear warfare. Today, many states possess and test nuclear weapons, and others are attempting to develop them. Given the current turbulent military and political climate of the world, with Americans once again marching toward global warfare, perhaps it would be prudent for everyone to step back and join Japan's remembrance. more...  0 Comments

AK Gupta | (from the latest issue of the Indypendent): "Every single thing the U.S. did led to civil war," says Christian Parenti, author of "The Freedom," his account of occupied Iraq. "The failure of reconstruction, the firing of the army, the blatant theft of Iraqi oil money, the use of the Badr Brigade, the use of Peshmerga, the use of death squads, the use of indiscriminate detention and torture, the destruction of Falluja and other towns in Al Anbar province," explains Parenti, created a raging insurgency and sparked civil war. more...  4 Comments
