Still looking for the "lesser evil;" As Bush flounders, Liberal Left left leaderless

Roy Rollin | This, of course, is nothing new. During the run-up to invasion of Iraq, Democrats in the Senate, like Hillary Clinton, were besieged by calls and letters from constituents urging them not to vote in favor of giving Bush a blank check to go to war. Needless to say, these stalwart "democrats" and self-styled "representatives of the people" chose to vote with the millionaires and not the millions. Dean, in fact, was never a real opponent of the war to begin with. more...  2 Comments

The Enemy is You!

finn | It is becoming more evident each day; the real target of new draconian laws and policies is not the (fabricated) terrorist ‘threat’, it is the domestic population – the enemy is you! The initial indicator (for this writer) was Section 543 of the Australian Defence Forces manual, which describes attack strategies against civilians and local populations – it should not be forgotten that Australia is a micro version and imitator of the USA and to a lesser extent the UK. more...  0 Comments

Afghanistan: Campaign against Taliban 'causes misery and hunger'

Kim Sengupta | "The counter-narcotics policy and eradication of the poppy crop have caused tensions between local people, the government and the [Nato] coalition. The removal of the farmers' livelihood programme runs counter to winning 'hearts and minds' in many areas. The Taliban capitalise on this ... by championing the cause of the farmers, at the same time protecting those (including themselves) who profit from the heroin trade."

Democratic Party outlines pro-war agenda for US elections

Joe Kay | The right-wing, pro-war position of the Democratic Party was on full display Tuesday as the party leadership presented a new report that criticizes the Bush administration for failing to adequately defend the interests of American militarism.
Over the past several weeks, top Bush administration officials have given a series of speeches marking the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. These speeches, laced with historical falsifications and other lies, have been designed to intimidate opponents of the war in Iraq, castigating them as appeasers of a new fascistic ideology. more...  0 Comments

BOOK DISCUSSION: LOST TOWERS ...inside the WTC cleanup By Gregory A. Butler

Gregory A. Butler | On 9/11, this city's construction workers rushed to the aid of their fallen fellow New Yorkers.

Butler, one of the carpenters who helped rebuild the American Express Towers, exposes the whole story in his new book, Lost Towers ...inside the World Trade Center cleanup... more...  0 Comments

In Lebanon a battle within the Middle East great war

n+1 | There are only two possible solutions for the “Palestinian problem”, classic solutions, historically already defined by the communist movement: or the proletarian revolution (in that particular area the bourgeois revolution is done, as we said above, and it had the mark of Israel) that allows the unification of the nationalities in a transition phase (obviously to eliminate the national problem to the root); or a total war that redraws the whole map of the Middle East and reaches the same aim by a top-imposition. more...  0 Comments
