Howard Zinn on The Uses of History and the War on Terrorism

Audio and transcript

They’ve taken over the country. They’ve taken over the policy.
They’ve driven us into two disastrous wars, disastrous for our
country and even more disastrous for people in the Middle East.
And they have sucked up the wealth of this country and given it
to the rich, and given it to the multinationals, given it to
Halliburton, given it to the makers of weapons. Continued

Tonkin Gulf II and the Guns of August?

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Is the United States provoking war with Iran, to begin
while the Congress is conveniently on its August recess?
One recalls that it was in August 1964, after the Republicans
nominated Barry Goldwater, that the Tonkin Gulf incident
occurred. Continue

Who's Sorry Now?

By MAUREEN DOWD

If only I had kept my promise to go after the thugs who attacked us
on 9/11, because now I've made Osama and Al Qaeda stronger. I
know my false claim about Al Qaeda's ties with Iraq led to Iraq's
being tied down by Al Qaeda. I see now that my bungled war on
terror has created more terror, empowered Iran and made America
less secure. Oh, yeah, and I'm sorry I broke the military. Continue

Biofuel mania ends days of cheap food

By Gwynne Dyer

The era of cheap food is over. The price of maize has doubled in
a year, and wheat futures are at their highest in a decade. The
food price index in India has risen 11 per cent in one year, and
in Mexico in January there were riots after the price of corn
flour - used in making the staple food of the poor, tortillas - went
up fourfold. Continue

A Free Press or a Ministry of Truth?

By Paul Craig Roberts

In his novel 1984, George Orwell portrayed a future time in
which the explanations of recent events and earlier history
are continually changed to meet Big Brother’s latest purpose.
Previous explanations disappear down “the memory hole.”
Sound familiar? Any American who pays attention can
observe the identical phenomenon occurring in the US
today. Continue

Privileged Grotesques, Ordinary Monsters And The Iraqi Deathscape.

By Phil Rockstroh

At present, George W. Bush is unpopular with the majority of the
American public not because of the murderous mayhem he has
unloosed in Iraq; rather, his standing has plummeted, due to the
fact, he didn't deliver the goods. Continue

Rorschach and Awe

By Katherine Eban

America's coercive interrogation methods were reverse-engineered
by two C.I.A. psychologists who had spent their careers training
U.S. soldiers to endure Communist-style torture techniques. The
spread of these tactics was fueled by a myth about a critical
"black site" operation. Continue

THE 'BUMPER STICKER' THAT BLOWS UP

Ann Coulter

For six years, the Bush administration has kept America safe
from another terrorist attack, allowing the Democrats to
claim that the war on terrorism is a fraud, a "bumper sticker,"
a sneaky ploy by a power-mad president to create an apocryphal
enemy so he could spy on innocent librarians in Wisconsin. And
that's the view of the moderate Democrats. The rest of them
think Bush was behind the 9/11 attacks.
