War & Peace
Archie Kennedy | They have crossed the line into tyranny. On the 'freedom and democracy' side of that line there are no pre-emptive strikes or arbitrary detentions. It isn't possible.
Howie Hawkins | In the spirit of Julia Ward Howe's original call for Mother's Day, I urge all the candidates for US Senate in New York State, starting with Hillary Clinton, to join me in opposing the initiation of a new war against Iran by the United States. So far, Clinton has gone in the other direction, criticizing the Bush administration for not being more aggressive in confronting Iran. more... 1 Comments
Cindy Sheehan | I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it. -Dwight D. Eisenhower more... 0 Comments

Gabriel Kolko | The real danger confronting any nation, especially the US, is the belief that it is strong when it is not, and maintaining a faith in the power of weapons and technology, when they are in fact wholly irrelevant-or even defective. This was surely themoral of the Vietnam War, which the US fought miore than a decade. more... 0 Comments
populist | ...it is absolutely necessary that I ask who, in fact, should be held responsible for the ongoing destruction of a such a substantial portion of the infrastructure of Iraq, the death of half a million children during an earlier embargo, the killing of as many as 100,000 innocent Iraqis, the deaths of 2,500 American soldiers, and the horrible injury of at least 25,000.... more... 1 Comments
From the Post Left Office | I would say this riot was mind blowing. Then again, I am from America. Notice I didn’t say “protest” but riot. The Greeks say to me, “we don’t protest.” Rock and Motherfucking Roll. It was a bit like Seattle revisited without the robocops and National Guard. more... 14 Comments

Carlos Ortiz de Zárate Denis | El mito del eterno regreso está vinculado a un caos y a un infructuoso esfuerzo de logos. La batalla mediática de la operación Libertad Duradera es un proceso de descomposición del pragmatismo en las cloacas del poder. El hecho de que los agentes más activos del mismo, las visitadoras que se liberan y engullen el poder de su creador, Pantaleón, busquen su redención en los altares de San Pantaleón no constituye una evidencia de que éstas consideraran el hundimiento del barco. Este artículo muestra que la búsqueda del “blanqueo” y la huída de las ratas no son exclusivas. Por el contrario, en la invocación a San Pantaleón, las visitadoras, no buscan un reposo, sino un recurso para iluminar un mundo de las esencias cada vez más alejado, incompatible y excluido de la descomposición del marco pragmático. more... 0 Comments

Hans Boes | The Downing Street memo revealed the deceit that Bush and Blair planned an invasion of Iraq from 2002. This memo was ignored by the media. Cheney kept repeating the lie that Saddam caused 9/11 and after he finally denied the connection, the media ignored his denial. Wars for personal ambition or false pretenses cause a constitutional crisis, a failed state and lost credibility. America is no longer a source of trust and inspiration but of fear and mockery. more... 4 Comments

Leonardo Boff | Everyone feels we are on a wrong tract because we do not have a social contract any more.. The US is a terrorist state. The US acts with violence, crushes human rights and tortures Americans and foreigners.. As humanity, we stand at a crossroads.

Debra Schaffer Hubert | This is an announcement for an action and an essay which goes into detail about the Battlecry Youth gatherings. G.W. Bush is part of this maniacal cult that promotes wars against Muslim countries, with young "christian soldiers" doing the fighting, laws that take away women's rights to make decisions about their bodies, and other anti-sexual and homophobic ideas...
