Iraq is for all the marbles

Pepe Escobar | "Any "leftest" committed to defeating the US/UK imperial venture in Iraq should read read the article below. Though it is a little dated now, it tells us clearly about the divide and rule plan neocons are undertaking in that hapless land. But make no mistake, this one is for all the marbles. Like time at the speed of light, "it would have a stop." If the invaders are foiled in their plan to steal the wealth of Iraq, it will be imperialism that will "have a stop." This is why so many of our "leaders" are fond of saying "failure in Iraq is not an option." Capitalism runs on oil. Without more of the precious crude, and soon, it will end. If you truely want a "new world," no effort to defeat the occupation of Iraq can be sparred." more...  0 Comments

Neo-Cons in Disarray

finch | Washington today is characterised by neo-cons running for cover as reality presses in on their delusional world. It’s every psychopath and criminal for him/herself as uncertainty grips the culpable. Neo-cons and their support networks are abandoning the new American century (delusion) for the hard reality of rapid American decline and the very real prospect of facing war crimes tribunals. The recent utterings of arch-neocon, Richard Perle, attempting to lay blame on the imbecile, Bush, reveals panic at the highest levels; but it’s far too late to evade responsibility, the world is very familiar with the criminal perpetrators of the whole neo-con fiasco. more...  6 Comments

Apocalypto: The Cinematic Logic of Genocide

Juan Santos | Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto is not a mere adventure tale, it’s not just another excruciatingly brutal portrayal of apocalyptic violence for its own sake, and the Village Voice is dead wrong when it says that unlike Braveheart and The Passion of the Christ, Apocalypto is “unburdened by nationalist or religious piety,”— that it's “pure, amoral sensationalism.”

Urgent Call for court solidarity - Cindy Sheehan & friends in court December 11 for UN Mission Trespass

The courts have been lacking supporters so I looked here & saw no call for court solidarity for these great women. Surely we can pack the courts, can't we? Here's an article about it when the trial started:  http://www.commondreams.org/headlines06/1206-03.htm more...  0 Comments

War Resisters League | We need to begin planning now for what will hopefully be a weekend of protest against a war few of us wanted and more and more are coming to reject. Although disgust with the war has grown palpably, if we do not come together on March 19th a year will have gone by without New Yorkers having had an opportunity to come out into the streets and show the world how they truly feel about the US agenda in the Mideast.
