Jed Brandt | Once again, hundreds of thousands have demonstrated their opposition to Bush's war and domestic repression. That's not stopping Bush's push into Iran, Somalia and increased troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. Just as activists need to become organizers, dissent must turn to resistance.

William Hughes | A massive anti-Iraqi War rally was held, in D.C., on Sat., Jan. 27, 2007. The Chairman of the House’s Judiciary Committee, Rep.

Clayton Hallmark | Personally, I see one thing clearly: An unprovoked nuclear attack on Iran by Israel or anyone else would mean that a STATE OF WAR exists between the state making the attack and THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD. Nuclear war is forever -- it sets intolerable precedents worse than Hiroshima and makes large land masses uninhabitable essentially forever. Any state commiting nuclear aggression has declared war on all humanity, deserves all-out war in return. more... 0 Comments
Mike Whitney | Webb was brilliant. He not only erased 40 minutes of Bush-blather and demagoguery; he lifted the sountry out of the squalor of pessimism by pointing the way out of Iraq and towards greater economic justice.. We were all betrayed. There were no weapons, no terrorist connection and no threat to national security. It was all fiction. more... 0 Comments
Steve Peacock | A list of potentially college-bound high school students will cost the U.S. Military Academy (USMA) at West Point nearly $58,000 to obtain, a move that will enable the institution to target-market certain kids based on personally identifiable information gleaned from that list. more... 0 Comments

William Hughes | George W. Bush, the Liar-in-Chief, did his thing on Tuesday night, Jan. 23, 2007. He delivered another one of his so-called “State of the Union” messages to the Congress, on Capitol Hill. Outside the building, however, by the reflective pool, activists, like: Col. Ann Wright, Medea Benjamin, Jeffrey Milliard and Travis Morales, offered a true representation of the state of our nation. They demanded an end to the Iraqi War and bringing our troops home. more... 0 Comments

The Worker's International Leauge | To put it simply, they want to maximize their profits at the expense of the vast majority. This requires access to raw materials, markets, and cheap labor, not to mention juicy government contracts with built-in profits. But don't take our word for it. Here's what the representatives and defenders of U.S. capitalism have had to say about it over the years:
William Hughes | The Bush-Cheney Gang’s immoral and illegal war in Iraq “hugely advances” the interest of Al Qaeda and Iran. “No American interests” are served by that conflict, according to Lt. Gen. William E. Odom, USA, Rtd. The longer U.S. forces remain in Iraq, he said, “the worse it will get.” He added: “Staying the course makes no sense.” Leaving Iraq now, Gen. Odom insisted, “is the only way to recover from the greatest strategic mistake in American history.” more... 4 Comments
