The August 12 protests and their implications

Fred Bergen | Only the working class, mobilizing the power that is uniquely its own to stop war production and paralyze the war industries, and based on its material interest in the defeat of imperialism, can stop the war! But the strategy needed to stop the war -- massive political strikes aimed at bringing down the government of the imperialists -- requires a political break with the bourgeois forces. more...  1 Comments

Whether it's "lesser evil," "ABB" or "Taking Back Congress" liberal left losers peddle "Popular Front" failures

Roy Rollin | As "Tom," "burningman" and myself have all found out first hand, Carl Davidson is very skillful in misrepresenting the views of his opponents on the left. For he is an apt graduate of the Stalin schools of falsification and class collaborationism. Indeed, the two go hand in hand, for the former makes the latter all the easier to sell as the only possible path for radical activists today. At the same time he poses as a voice of moderation willing to learn from his own ultra-left mistakes of yesteryear and assist others in avoiding them by burying themselves in the politics of the possible, ie, in the Democratic Party. Thus he endlessly insinuates that those who do not share his infatuation with the Democrats instead advocate armed insurrection or some other such out of this world adventurism, as if those were the only choices available for the left today. By posing the later as what the far left advocates, he hopes to make the former seem reasonable and palatable even though expecting to take over the bosses' party or pressure it into cleaning up its act is as far fetched a pipe dream as is a handful of radicals taking over state power in the US today. more...  2 Comments

Naval Security Document Lumps Journalists With Foreign Spies

Steve Peacock | A recently obtained Naval Operations Security Plan (OPSEC) expressly reveals the U.S. Navy’s contempt for journalists, whom it views in the same light as – and arguably a less favorable light than – foreign spies. The document was discovered while researching a federal contract to support psychological operations (PSYOPS) that the U.S. military conducts worldwide, a $100 million award secured by Virginia-based CACI International. more...  0 Comments

Tracing a Trail of Destruction: Report from Lebanon, August 13, 2006

Walden Bello* | BEIRUT, Lebanon - The wounds of war were evident shortly after we crossed the Syria-Lebanon border at 1130 in the morning on August 12.

Incompetent UN Resolution Draft

Jurgen Cain-Kulbel | When the war criminals George W Bush and Tony Blair howl like wolves in the choir, that is a prelude to shooting.. State terrorism becomes international policy in a time when Bush, Blair, Rice, Bolton and Olmert drive the world into wars to conquer resources and wage a parallel crusade against Islam. The UN only seems to be used for legitimation. more...  0 Comments

Hezbollah's welfare services ensure grass-roots support

Israel is going down | In bombed-out southern villages and refugee-filled schools across the country, Hezbollah supporters go door to door, checking if people have enough food and medicine. That is the second prong of the Shiite group's strength in Lebanon, where it is putting up stiff resistance to thousands of Israeli troops in the south. more...  17 Comments
