War & Peace
Kristen Ess | The divide and conquer technique seems so easily employed in the Middle East. Under US occupation, Iraq has fallen apart in Sunni – Shi'ite fighting, not that it did not exist before, but not to the same extent in intention. Under Israeli occupation, Palestine has fallen apart with the Hamas – Fateh fighting. But the issue of timing and political party in Iraq may have more to do with the United States' publicly stated plan this summer for its “New Middle East” than originally thought. more... 0 Comments

War Resisters League | We are organizing a weekend of events and actions that will let the broad mass of New Yorkers make a personal political statement against the Iraq War. The millions that went into the streets on February 15 need to make themselves heard again - now joined by the millions more that have come to oppose the war since it began four long years ago. We are looking for new ideas and new blood -- novel actions that will both give voice to the city's diverse communities as well as capture the imagination of a new generation of protestors.

Ken Meyercord | I'm sick with concern that we may be behind most of the so-called "sectarian violence" devastating the Iraqi people. Whether the aim is to simply kill as many Iraqis as possible or to drive them into exile so as to make it easier to govern those remaining, the immediate target of the tactic is the Iraqi people as a whole - not enemy combatants, insurgents, or any identifiable subgroup- and in this sense it constitutes genocide.

nano | The execution of the murderer, Saddam Hussein, by American organised criminals, via their proxies in Iraq, highlights the fact that criminals vying for power determine the course of the world. The coalition of Bush, Blair and Howard is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians yet these leaders commit their crimes with impunity. The defining principle is not law (as is claimed) it is brute force! Economic and military power determines who is a ‘criminal’ and who is a ‘saviour’, regardless of the similarity of the acts committed. more... 1 Comments

Jonathan Cook | "But in fact, each of these breakdowns of social order appears to have been engineered either by the United States or by Israel. In Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq, sectarian difference is less important than a clash of political ideologies and interests as rival factions disagree about whether to submit to, or resist, American and Israeli interference. Where the factions derive their funding and legitimacy from — increasingly a choice between the US or Iran — seems to determine where they stand in this confrontation."
