DEMILITARIZE SCHOOLS

RISEOUT | There is no reason for any military personnel to set foot inside a school, if institutions are serious about education. With millions of youth attending public schools, schools are a hot bed for the pentagon’s business of expanding military numbers. At no time is it so urgent and desperate to increase military numbers then during a time of war.

From Sarajevo to Baghdad: Iraq’s Sectarian Divide Looks More Like Bosnia Every Day

Graham Fortier | The captive death of Slobodan Milosevic is another reminder of the injustice done to Bosnians during the 92-95 conflict. To US citizens, his death was seemingly a back page story with regards to the current situation in Iraq. However, upon re-reading the history and causes of the Bosnian war and subsequent genocide, eerie similarities can be drawn between the two sectarian conflicts. Is it audacious to call Iraq the next Bosnia, or do the conflicts hold more in common than we think?

Israel: Outside The Fence - Interview with three of the Anarchists Against The Wall

Asafa Peled | The Separation Fence is closing in upon more and more Palestinian villages. Their inhabitants are cut off from sources of livelihood. Some Israelis are not willing to remain silent. Matan Cohen lost an eye because of it. Shai Karmeli-Polak gave up for its sake a promising career. Leila Mosinzon is going to prison for its sake, next month. The Separation Fence has become their obsession. What is it about this wall, designed to separate Israelis from Palestinians, which is bringing young people to give up the well-fed bourgeois life and get tear gas blown in their face every Friday afternoon? The border inside. more...  1 Comments

The Politics of Oil: The Discourse Must Change

Editors of The Oil Drum | Leaders of both political parties are expressing concern about the high price of gasoline. President George Bush announced yesterday that he was suspending deliveries to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in order to make more oil available to consumers as well as putting on hold the traditional regulations requiring additives to make fuel burn cleaner during the summer driving season.

Meanwhile, Democratic leaders have had their own response to rising gas prices. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has announced his support for the Menendez Amendment, which would "provide more than $6 billion in relief directly to the American people by eliminating the federal tax for both gas and diesel for 60 days." Senator Charles Schumer recently called for a federal investigation to determine whether oil companies are withholding gasoline production, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has blamed high gas prices on the administration's cozy relationship with the oil companies, price gouging, and royalty relief.

The editors of The Oil Drum are ideologically diverse. Over the last year, we have created a forum at www.theoildrum.com to encourage an open, rational, and fact-based discussion of energy issues. While individual editors frequently express an opinion on a subject, we have never felt it necessary to take a unified position on any specific issue. That is, until today. more...  0 Comments

The Risks of an Anti-War Movement That Plays it Safe

By A.K. Gupta | The war has generated a tremendous amount of opposition across the political spectrum, but the antiwar movement has failed to capitalize on it. There are only three inter-related protest forces that are positioned to influence the conduct of the war: the counter-recruitment movement, antiwar elements within the military and among veterans, and the traditional peace and social justice movement. more...  1 Comments

The Bleating Bush

peptide | Bush has responded to the recent bombings in Egypt with a finger pounding demonstration of determined imbecility; he once again identifies “the enemy” (as singular) implying a centralised terrorist group. If the USA had any credible intelligence they would know that the ‘enemy’ is in fact many separate and spontaneously occurring cells rather than a fixed hierarchical centralised group. Misinformation could be another reason that the USA is failing in Iraq! US troops are unable to locate the “enemy” to which Bush and his administration continually refers – we should not forget that Rumsfeld briefs Bush on these matters. more...  1 Comments
