Dave Lindorff | Miller did things a journalist should never do. She shilled for a White House disinformation campaign that was promoting an invasion of Iraq, accepted control from the Pentagon, and deceptively misidentified her sources. Yet she hasn’t been fired by her official employer, the NY Times. Was Times senior management in on the game? more... 0 Comments

A.K. GUPTA | Sunni Arabs in particular felt the charter had been stacked against them by allowing oil-rich provinces in the Shiite south and Kurdish north to form autonomous regions.

ERIN THOMPSON | The premise of war tax resistance is simple: Those who do not support wars perpetuated and funded by the U.S. government should not pay for them. For fiscal year 2005, the federal government raised $927 billion in individual income taxes, in comparison to $278 billion in corporate taxes.

This does not include another $49.1 billion in supplemental funding for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. With the total bill for the Iraq War surpassing $250 billion, the progressive think-tank, Institute for Policy Studies, puts the cost of the war in Iraq at about $2,900 for a family of four.
