A Debate within Our Movements

Mitchel Cohen | There is something that continues to disturb me about Webster Tarpley's increasing prominence in the 9-11Truth and antiwar movements; I'll try to put some of it into words here. As a member of the 9-11 Truth movement, I am concerned about the direction in which some folks are pulling it. It is so very important that we prevent the movement from degenerating into cult-like groups or being used as a recruiting ground for outright Nazis. My concern is not only over the quality of the information being put out there, it's about what's done with that information and how it is used. more...  0 Comments

Remember How Iran Responded to the 9/11 Attacks?

John S. | "On behalf of the Iranian government and the nation, I condemn the hijacking attempts and terrorist attacks on public centers in American cities which have killed a large number of innocent people," President Khatami said in reaction to the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor. ... "My deep sympathy goes out to the American nation, particularly those who have suffered from the attacks and also the families of the victims," he said, noting, "terrorism is doomed and the international community should stem it and take effective measures in a bid to eradicate it."

Tell our troops to stop fighting this war. They can and should refuse.

War reporter | Saying you oppose the war but support the troops is like saying you oppose murder but support murderers. Same false and contradictory reasoning that cannot be true. Our troops are guilty of fighting this, unjust needless war of aggression for oil and corporate war profits (I will not say for the Israel lobby inside and outside our Federal Government, because that would be politically incorrect to say). THe troops should be criticized for fightng this war and held accountable. Their excuse that "we were only following orders" is the same worthless excuse used by Hitler's nazi army after it was defeated in world war 2 (the war of the ultra-capitalist rivals). more...  1 Comments

Three fundamental reforms are necessary: the abolition of the UN Security Council, the mandatory requirement for states to appear before the International Court of Justice, and the establishment of an International Court of Compliance for citizens to take states for non-compliance with the rule of international law. more...  0 Comments
