by Mickey Z. / October 24th, 2008 | Another Election Day approaches and I’m reminded of something the late Pakistani dissident, Eqbal Ahmad said about Noam Chomsky in the book, Confronting Empire (2000): “He (Chomsky) has never wavered. He has never fallen into the trap of saying, ‘Clinton will do better.’ Or ‘Nixon was bad but Carter at least had a human rights presidency.’ There is a consistency of substance, of posture, of outlook in his work.”
a-films | One year has passed since the first Palestinians were allowed to return to the outskirts of the destroyed Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, to the so-called "new camp". Meanwhile, up to 15.000 people have resettled there, many of them waiting to access their destroyed homes in the "old camp", the core of what used to be Nahr al-Bared Camp. The Lebanese army still exclusively controls the old camp as well as parts of the new camp.
MN Roy | So according to Thomas Riggins, associate editor of “Political Affairs,” not voting for the pro-war and pro-Wall Street Democrats smacks of “ultra-leftism.” Surprise, surprise. For those not in the know, “Political Affairs” is the mouthpiece for the reformist Stalinists of the mis-named “Communist Party.” The latter have been making a living on the left by supporting almost any and every Democrat since Uncle Joe Stalin himself instructed the CP to support FDR in the 1930s and derail any moves on the part of the CIO in the direction of an independent labor party. All in the name of “anti-fascism,” of course. Only the biggest “fascists,” the Jim Crow “Dixiecrats,” were to be found inside of the Democratic party, and were a key component of FDR’s “New Deal” coalition since they controlled the white-only single-party South.

New York City Labor Against the War | [B]oth Messrs. Obama and McCain are reiterating their commitment to good, old-fashioned American-style war making. . . . Rather than offering relief, the new entrant to the White House come January is likely to simply exacerbate the mayhem. more... 0 Comments

Paul J. Landis | The country is now preparing to elect a new President and as all our citizens consider their choices, they are confronted with the numbing denial by both Obama and McCain that the Iraq war is Illegal. “Why are Obama and McCain discussing the terrifying idea of a draft” Americans are asking, when “it is your sworn constitutional duty to call for an end to this and future Illegal Wars,” and then, a draft is clearly un-necessary? more... 0 Comments
