Australian Treasurer Seeks Orderly Withdrawal From U.S. Dollar

By John Garnaut Economics Correspondent

Central banks in China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Hong
Kong have channelled immense foreign reserves into American
government bonds, helping to prop up the US dollar and hold
down American interest rates. Mr Costello said "the strategy
had changed" and Chinese central bankers were now looking
for alternative investments. Continue

Striking the US where it hurts

By Victor N Corpus

A decision by China to shift a major portion of its reserve
to the euro or the yen or gold could trigger other central
banks to follow suit. Nobody would want to be left behind
holding a bagfull of dollars rapidly turning worthless. The
herd psychology would be very difficult to control in this
case because national economic survival would be at stake.

America's Greatest Threat

We have lived as if in a trance. We have lived. as people in fear.
And now - our rights and our freedoms in peril - we slowly

Reflections on the Eve of Another Rigged Election

By Ernest Partridge

The Bush administration can not allow the Democrats
to take control of either house of Congress. And they
are in a position to prevent it, regardless of the will of
the American voters. Continue

The Republic is Dead, Long Live the Republic.

By Juan Cole

Bush and a supine, cowardly Congress shredded the US
Constitution on Tuesday, abolishing the right of a court
review (habeas corpus) for some classes of suspect. Suspect,
mind you, not proven criminal. Continue

A Time Of Shame

National yawn as our rights evaporate’By Keith Olbermann -
Anchor, 'Countdown'First thing this morning, the president
signed into law the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which
does away with habeas corpus, the right of suspected terrorists
or anybody else to know why they have been imprisoned,
provided the president does not think it should apply to you
and declares you an enemy combatant. Video and transcript.

Sowing the Seeds of Fascism in America

By Stan GoffAuthor Stan Goff, a retired 26-year
veteran of the U.S. Army Special Forces, sounds a
warning call that many of the historical precursors
of fascism—white supremacy, militarization of culture,
vigilantism, masculine fear of female power, xenophobia
and economic destabilization—are ascendant in America
today. Continue

Bush's Petro-Cartel Almost Has Iraq's Oil

By Joshua Holland

Even as Iraq verges on splintering into a sectarian civil

up its massive, profitable reserves, known to everyone

Why Bush Smiles: Victory is at Hand in Iraq

By Chris Floyd

Yes, victory. You wonder why Bush and his minions
maintain the seemingly irrational belief that "things are
going well" in Iraq, that "we're making progress," etc.?
That's because things are going well in the war they are
fighting: the war for money and power. Continue

The propaganda of our times

By Paul R. Dunn J.B.

Priestly in the Root Is Fear wrote: "Almost all propaganda is
designed to create fear. Heads of governments and their
officials know that a frightened people are easier to govern,
will forfeit rights it would otherwise defend, are less likely
to demand a better life, and will agree to millions and millions
being spent on 'defense'." Between now and Election Day
we'll see Karl Rove's minions flaunt the Islamic Fascist line
repeatedly and unabashedly to garner votes. Continue

The worst in Iraq is still to come

By Simon Tisdall

In the US, Iraq is now primarily an electoral rather
than a nation-building, humanitarian or counter-terrorism
issue. With the Republicans fighting to retain control of
Congress in next month's midterm polls, George Bush's
Middle East freedom mission has become a hard-nosed
numbers game. Continue

Stewart in Leg-irons; the latest victory in the war on terror

By Mike Whitney

So far, Bush’s only triumph in his muddled war on terror has
been locking up the two Stewart Sisters, Lynne and Martha.
(They’re not really sisters) Neither posed any threat to national
security, but that’s beside the point. Their arrest sends a chilling
message to “home-decoration mavens” and 67 year old cancer
patients that they’d better “watch their step” or they’ll find
themselves in prison-pinstripes. Continue

Iraq Through a Rebel's Eyes

By Andrew Greene

Thomas Jefferson was a rebel, as so many of his comments
demonstrated. He also was a gun enthusiast, and not the
bird-shooting kind. His gang of insurgents fought the British
with the eighteenth century equivalents of assault rifles, RPGs,
and roadside bombs — and that is why they are worth recalling
when our conversation turns to Iraq. Continue

F. William Engdahl: Crisis of the U.S. Dollar System:

The US position in the world since 1945, and especially since
1971, has rested on two pillars, however: The superiority of
the US military over all, and, the role of the dollar as world
reserve currency. That dollar is the Achilles heel of American
hegemony today.
