US Senate Race: Hawkins Calls for Ceasefire; Clinton Says Bombs Away to Israel

Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate for New York, said today the US government should use its leadership to affect an immediate cease-fire in the Middle East. He criticized the Bush administration’s unconditional support of Israel’s military attacks on the civilian populations in Gaza and Lebanon. “We are in a strong diplomatic position to pressure Israel into heeding a cease-fire by warning US funding to Israel will be cut completely if they don’t comply,” says Hawkins. “We must halt this disaster and the killings of innocent civilians before it gets deadlier,” Hawkins appealed.

A Century of Oil Imperialism

Myron (Mike) Stagman, PhD | The current Iraq War, waged primarily to seize incredibly rich oil resources for the benefit of the U.S.-UK Oil Cartel, was predictable.

Beirut Under Seige

Hardig | In a way, the eerie silence of no bombs going off, and the distant buzz of helicopters and fighter jets can be as scary as the actual bombardments. Well, not quite of course, the bombardment is nothing less than Hell on earth for those in the direct line of fire, while the silence is more of a psychological strain for those waiting to see if they will be in the line of fire. Last night as I lay in bed, I felt as though there was a lot of activity going on south from here. I heard not only fighter jets, but what sounded like helicopters as well. Actually, I heard what sounded like a small propeller airplane, but that must have been a helicopter; no small propeller airplanes are likely to be in the air over Beirut at this point. Unless it was an unmanned drone that is, perhaps sent out to inspect the success of the terror campaign so far. The Dahiyeh is no more. Lebanon is getting hit from north to south. Shou, Israel, are you running out of targets yet?
