The night before Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson

the sculptor Steven Goldsmith, told me that the mayor

Goats and Hussars: A British Harbinger of American Defeat

By Chris Floyd

"British forces evacuated the military headquarters
without coordination with the Iraqi forces,"
Dhaffar Jabbar, spokesman for the Maysan
governor, told Reuters on Thursday, as looters
began moving into the camp in the wake of
the British withdrawal. A unit of Iraqi
government troops mutinied when told to
keep order at the base - and instead attacked
a military post of their own army. Continue

Corporate Globalization and Middle East Terrorism

By Charles Sullivan

It is ironic that the people who think they are the

known do not participate in a democracy at all;
nor do they recognize one when they see it. These
facts attest to how thoroughly the American
people have been propagandized by the

None of the alleged terrorists had made a bomb.

Western corporate media shamelessly serve

Israel and the United States. But then in a fascist
nation, corporations are wedded with the state,
militarism is the state’s primary focus, scapegoats
and enemies are essential, and the function of
the Fourth Estate is to provide the propaganda
