The Big Lie about `Islamic Fascism'

Eric Margolis | Now the neoconservatives are busy whipping up war against Syria and Iran to keep themselves in power and maintain the political dynamics of this 21st century revival of fascism..

By Sara Cantrell (NYC)- Afghan Wire News | "America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way around.
Human rights invented America." - President Jimmy Carter

Following that credo, on September 11, 2006, American women handcuffed and chained themselves to the Afghan Embassy in Washington, DC to protest against Hamid Karzai's oppressive government. A spokeswoman stated that this was "just the start of demonstrations against the Afghan Embassy in Washington to protest President Karzai's illegal imprisonment of innocent Americans and treatment of Afghan women." more...  1 Comments

Hawkins for Senate starts 9/11 radio ads, new investigation, oppose war on terrorism

Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate, has begun airing radio ads calling for a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks. Hawkins said the unlike the previous investigations, this one needed to head with those without a conflict of interest such as family members of the victims. "The fifth anniversary of the murders of several thousand individuals at the World Trade Center, DC and Pennsylvania is an opportune time to reflect on whether our country took the right response after 9/11. This tragedy has been cynically manipulated by the Bush administration - with the active support of both parties in Congress. The so-called "war on terrorism" has isolated the US politically; fueled a huge increase in an already bloated military budget, leading to massive war profiteering, soaring federal budget deficits and cutbacks in many domestic programs; led to the invasion of Iraq, which had nothing to do with 9/11; and, curtailed civil liberties and public dissent at home. Meanwhile, terrorism has increased throughout the world," more...  0 Comments
