Bush’s Nuclear Apocalypse

By Chris Hedges

The aircraft carrier Eisenhower, accompanied by the
guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio, guided-missile destroyer
USS Ramage, guided-missile destroyer USS Mason and the
fast-attack submarine USS Newport News, is, as I write,
making its way to the Straits of Hormuz off Iran. The
ships will be in place to strike Iran by the end of the month.
It may be a bluff. It may be a feint. It may be a simple show
of American power. But I doubt it. Continue

Ambling towards Disaster; Bush’s North Korea Policy

By Mike Whitney

It took 6 years of relentless threats, sanctions and belligerence,
but Bush finally succeeded in pushing Kim Jong-Il to build
North Korea’s first nuclear bomb. Now, Kim can just add a
few finishing touches to his ballistic-missile delivery system,
the Taepo-dong ICBM, and he’ll be able to wipe out the 9
western states with a flip of the switch. Continue

Nuclear Blackmail

By Eric S. Margolis

North Korea has repeatedly agreed to junk its nuclear weapons
provided the US does three things: 1. deal directly with
Pyongyang, which Washington refuses to do; 2. provide
security guarantees that the US will not attack North Korea;
3. provide economic aid. The Bush Administration’s hard-line
neoconservatives refuse to ‘validate’ North Korea’s totalitarian
regime through direct talks. Neocons are determined to overthrow
Kim Jong-il. Continue

Cindy Sheehan : A Nation Still at War:

Friend---it is going to take us (me and you) to effect any
changes in this country. From the anti-slavery movement
to the Civil Rights movement, to every good movement in
between, it has been we the people demanding these changes
and not resting until we got them. Good comes from the
bottom up---crap rolls down hill. I am tired of getting
crapped on by our government

Where are the voices?

The shame of silence in the face of Israeli and US crimes

By Paul J. Balles

Where are the voices of moral righteousness that the
world has always depended upon to rein in the evil forces
of conquering warlords? The teachers and professors - why
are they silent? The virtuous - the clergy and elders of
church and mosque and synagogue - who covered their
mouths with duct tape and broke their pens and keyboards?

Wars and propaganda machines

By Rodrigue Tremblay

Propaganda machines are dangerous, even more so in a
democracy than in a totalitarian regime, because their
goal is to confuse, disinform, lie, raise fear and manipulate
the opinions of the people. Continue

Welcome to the Nuclear Club!

By Norman Solomon

Rest assured that while President Bush was at a podium
in the White House on Monday denouncing the North Korean
nuclear test as a "provocative act," Karl Rove was hard
at work to fine-tune plans for a rhetorical onslaught linking
this crisis to the "war on terror." Continue

All The President's Men And Women

It takes an army of people to keep the White House
running; it turns out there are 433 assistants. And as
Andy Rooney found out, some of them have pretty
interesting titles, such as "Director of Lessons Learned"
and "Gift Analyst." More...
