QUOTE:

The Last Dead Bull on Wall Street


By Mike Whitney


Whew! What a week for the stock market. On
Wednesday the market took a 360 point nosedive
followed, two days later, by a 220 point belly-flop.
By the time it was over, the trading pits looked
more like a sausage-packing plant than the
world’s financial epicenter. Continue

Waterboarding Republicans vs. Supporting Our Troops

By Stephen Crockett

For those Republicans (or Democrats) who defend
waterboarding as something less than torture, I have
a proposal. Whenever a Bush Administration official
is called before the House or Senate to testify, they
should be waterboarded the entire time they are
testifying. The technique, according to the Bush
Republicans, elicits honest answers and does not
amount to torture. According to these Bush Republicans,
waterboarding does not cause any lasting damage. Continue

Solidarity

By Charles Sullivan

We are living in extraordinarily dangerous times, when
evil, rather than justice, prevails. The schoolyard is
terrorized by thugs and punks with names like Bush,
Cheney, Limbaugh, Robertson, Clinton, Rockefeller,
Rice, Rumsfeld, Perle, Kristol and Giuliani—pedigreed
people all. Continue

Our Man in Islamabad


By Stephen Lendman


Pakistan remains in turmoil under martial law.
Thousands have been arrested including hundreds
of lawyers, opposition politicians, journalists and
students according to independent sources although
the Interior Ministry acknowledges only 1800.
In addition, pitched battles are on the streets, and
all George Bush can say is we'll "continue to work
with (Musharraf and hope) he will restore democracy
as quickly as possible." Continue

The Neoconservative Agenda to Sacrifice the Fifth Fleet


The New Pearl Harbor


By Michael E. Salla, M.A., Ph.D.


Neoconservatives within the Bush administration are
aggressively promoting a range of military actions
against Iran that will culminate in Iran attacking the
US Navy’s Fifth Fleet with sophisticated cruise
anti-ship missiles. Iran has sufficient quantities of
cruise missiles to destroy much or all of the Fifth Fleet
which is within range of Iran’s mobile missile launchers
strategically located along its mountainous terrain
overlooking the Persian Gulf. Continue

The Long Fall A Market Without Parachutes



By Mike Whitney


America is finished, washed up, kaput. Foreign investors
and central banks around the world have lost confidence
in US markets and are headed for the exits. The dollar is
sinking, the country is insolvent, and its leaders are
barking mad. Continue
