Al-Awda NY | September 2007 marks the 25th anniversary of the massacre at Sabra and Shatila, when thousands of Palestinian refugees, Lebanese, Syrians and Egyptians were massacred in the Palestinian refugee camp of Shatila and the neighborhood of Sabra in one of the most horrifying massacres in recent history. The massacres at these refugee camps, carried out by right-wing Phalangist militias in Lebanon at the behest and with the approval of invading Zionist armies, were yet another catastrophe visited upon the Palestinian refugee population by a force determined to crush the Palestinian people, their resistance, and their very existence. more... 0 Comments

The military industrial complex. Tell others to criticize the troops. If you support the troops, you support the war. It is like saying you oppose rape and murder but support rapists and murderers. That's why anti-war movement is failing. more... 0 Comments

Larry Johnson | "Barksdale Air Force Base is being used as a jumping off point for Middle East operations. Gee, why would we want cruise missile nukes at Barksdale Air Force Base.

E. SAN JUAN, Jr. | Colluding with U.S. & Filipino reactionaries, Dutch fascist authorities arrested Jose Maria Sison, the world-renowned left activist, and raided the National Democratic Front International Information Office in Holland.

Et tu Brute | If right-wing straw-women like Condoleezza Rice so willingly label Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization for the purpose of building a phony case for war against Iran, then it is high-time we Americans examine the little discussed question of just “who” is pulling America’s puppet strings—because such a war is not in our self-interest? more... 0 Comments
