Ooooh...! Our Fearless Democrats Have Done It Again! Nothing, of Course...

QUOTE:

Attention Democrats: I Told You So! Would You Like to Wake Up Now?

So the Democrats in Congress caved in and the Iraq catastrophe
continues. What a surprise. Who’d of thought? I never saw that
coming. So what are all you brave bold Democrats going to do
now; write an angry e-mail to your reps, get your crazy hats and
creative signs and march to some empty buildings in DC? Ooooh
you go get’em! The members of Congress must be shaking in
their boots…from all the laughter that is!

Why Congress Caved to Bush

By Patrick J. Buchanan

The anti-war Democrats are crying betrayal – and justifiably
so. For a Democratic Congress is now voting to fully fund
the war in Iraq, as demanded by President Bush, and
without any timetable for a U.S. troop withdrawal. Bush
got his $100 billion, then magnanimously agreed to let
Democrats keep the $20 billion in pork they stuffed into
the bill – to soothe the pain of their sellout of the party
base. Continue

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich: "Privatizing Iraq's Oil is Theft!"

7 Minute Video

Rep. Kucinich explained how the proposed Bill, now pending
before the U.S. Congress, via its benchmarks, will provide
for the privatization of Iraqi oil. It requires the regime
in Iraq to pass a law called, "The Hydrocarbon Act." If they
refuse to do so over a billion dollars in reconstruction funds
will be blocked by the Bush-Cheney administration, he
claimed. - Unless the scheme is stopped, Rep. Kucinich
predicted, we will be looking at an Iraqi War "going on
forever!" Continue

Bush's New Middle East

By Mike Whitney

It’s hard to know what Bush hopes to accomplish by
backing the bloody siege of the Nahr al-Bared refugee
camp, but one thing is certain; things are never as they
seem. In an interview on Democracy Now last week,
investigative reporter Seymour Hersh stated that,
Fatah al-Islam---the group of Sunni extremists inside
the camp--were getting material support from the Saudis,
the Bush administration and members of the Lebanese
political establishment. Continue

Globalization And Democracy: Some Basics

By Michael Parenti

Free trade is not fair trade; it benefits strong nations at the

products, no prohibitions against child labor, no guaranteed
living wage or benefits, no public services that might conceivably
compete with private services, no health and safety protections
that might cut into corporate profits. Continue
