War Criminals, Beware :

On November 14 a group of lawyers and other experts
will come before the German federal prosecutor and ask
him to open a criminal investigation targeting Donald
Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzales and other key Bush
Administration figures for war crimes.

Is Bush Next?

Paul Craig Roberts

The show trial of Saddam Hussein was drawn out until
two days before the midterm US elections. The death
sentence imposed on the former Iraqi president may
help the deluded band of Bush supporters find victory
in the defeat that Bush has met in Iraq and motivate
them to support the beleaguered Republicans on
November 7. Continue

Hacking Democracy

HBO Video Special Report

This cautionary documentary exposes the vulnerability
of computers - which count approximately 80% of
America's votes in county, state and federal elections -
suggesting that if our votes aren't safe, then our
democracy isn't safe either. Continue

The Genocide Election

By Peter Rost

This election is about much more than Democrats or
Republicans, higher or lower taxes, or the war in Iraq.
It is about the survival of millions of people around the
globe. And if candidates supported by the drug industry
prevail, we may become participants in a silent genocide.

Elections Or Electrons

What If Anything Will Count Your Vote

By Dom Stasi

This new gang are not only non-Republicans, they’re not
even politicians. Hell, they are not even corrupt politicians.
No. They are criminals. They are criminals and sociopaths
posing as corrupt politicians and dragging the GOP legacy
down with them. Continue

Bush’s Carnival of Blood

By Mike Whitney

This is a dark day for Americans and Iraqis alike. Killing

This was a guilty verdict on America as well

By Robert Fisk

So America's one-time ally has been sentenced to death for
war crimes he committed when he was Washington's best
friend in the Arab world. America knew all about his atrocities
and even supplied the gas - along with the British, of course -
yet there we were yesterday declaring it to be, in the White
House's words, another "great day for Iraq". Continue

Rough Justice;

Prowling Baghdad with a sidearm and a defective bulletproof-vest

By Mike Whitney

None of the people who started this war will ever be held
accountable. In fact, the cabal of militarists, think-tank
sycophants, and genocidal nutbars, who operate covertly
behind the scenes, are probably devising their next bloodbath
already. Unless we root them out, the cancer will persist.

The Case for Engagement

By Scott Ritter

I recently returned from a trip to Iran, where over the
course of a week I made the journey from the northern
suburbs of Tehran to the gates of the Natanz enrichment
facility, and in doing so had my eyes opened. The Iran that
I witnessed was far removed from the one caricatured
in the US media. I left with the frustrating realization
that, as had been the case with Iraq, America was stumbling
toward a conflict, blinded by the prejudice and fear born
of our collective ignorance. Continue
