|Inside U.S.A.: Is the North American Empire in Death Agony?|
Monday, July 23 @ 03:08:27 UTC
| By Franz J. T. Lee|
Empires come and go, Hitler's Third Empire was toppled by the coming Fourth Empire.
Ex oriente lux. Against the Western Behemoth will the Eastern Dragon be victorious?
Let us put a current news item into global historic perspective. Why does Iran force Japan to purchase its oil not in US dollars?
In Antiquity long before the European barbarians were coming down from their leafless grey trees, all along the middle and far eastern horizon of planet earth majestic cultures and civilizations came into being. This was long before the "glory" of Ancient Greece, of the original accumulation of capital which eventually infected the whole globe with its economic exploitation, political domination, social discrimination and destructive universal militarism.

|War and Terror: Anti War and Peace Activists Making America and the World Secure|
Tuesday, January 21 @ 10:19:13 UTC
|by Ben Roberts|
We have been led mistakenly to believe in America that our army and weapons of war will protect us from danger beyond our shores and borders, and that antiwar and peace activists are somehow ungrateful, unpatriotic, and divisive. George Bush definitely wants us to believe this. However, nothing can be further from the truth. The anti-war demonstrations in Washington DC, and across this nation shows a tidal wave of war opposition that is bound to break the dangerous oligarchic iron grip that Bush, his Administration, and his family has on this beacon of democracy we call America, and wash them away with the outgoing tide. When Bush and his cohorts look at, and hear the anti-war noises they must be befuddled and, to use one of Democratic strategist George Carville funny quotes, 'be unsure of whether to wind their behinds or scratch their watches.'

|War and Terror: Why I Oppose the US War on Terror: an ex-Marine Sergeant Speaks Out|
Wednesday, October 23 @ 16:18:32 UTC
|by Chris White|
The more I juxtapose logical world opinion with the Bush administration's actions in the war on terror, I realize one overwhelming theme: hypocrisy. No one in any of the branches of government runs a physical risk to themselves by entering a war with Iraq, and we can bet that none of their family members are at risk, either. That is, until the next "terrorist" attack. I put "terrorist" in quotes because its definition is subjective, and I myself used to be in the Marine Corps, part of the most powerful "terrorist" organization on the planet: the U.S. government.
Of course, we never call our operations "terrorism" because every operation is considered legitimate to us. When found guilty by the World Court for violence in Nicaragua, we ignore the decision. Too bad the nations we hurt can't just ignore what we do to them. When the planet condemns us for killing between 2,500-4,000 people in Panama, we're too busy planning the next invasion of a country that can't fight back.

|By Doreen Miller, YellowTimes.org|
Recently I contacted Massachusetts Representative Stephen Lynch to discourage him from supporting President Bush's Congressional request for the authority to forcefully remove Saddam Hussein from power. Below is Representative Lynch's response. Not being satisfied with his justification of supporting President Bush, I replied to his letter with one of my own. My letter can be found under Representative Lynch's letter below.

|War and Terror: Bush Won't Take Yes For An Answer|
Wednesday, October 09 @ 07:06:14 UTC
|by Charley Reese
If anyone doubted George Bush's intention to go to war with Iraq, that doubt should have been removed when the United States said it would "thwart" the return of the arms inspectors to Iraq until it got a new Security Council resolution.
Of course, the resolution the United States wants is just a rubber stamp to start the war. It is designed to force the Iraqis to reject it and thus provide the international cover that Bush wants for his invasion.

|War and Terror: Democratic congressman asserts Bush would mislead U.S. on Iraq|
Monday, September 30 @ 16:36:39 UTC
|By John H. Cushman Jr., New York Times|
WASHINGTON — Democratic congressmen who are visiting Iraq this week stirred up anger among some Republicans when they questioned the reasons President Bush has used to justify possible military action against Iraq.
One of the congressmen, Representative Jim McDermott of Washington State, said today that he thought President Bush was willing "to mislead the American people" about whether the war was needed and that the administration had gone back and forth between citing supposed links between Iraq and the terrorist network Al Qaeda and Iraq's supposed attempts to obtain weapons of mass destruction.
