War Propaganda from Afghanistan

A Year of War Would Pay for Local Jobs Bill

Bob Naiman, Truthout: "Sometime between now and Memorial Day, the House is expected to consider $33 billion more for war in Afghanistan. This 'war supplemental' is largely intended to plug the hole in Afghanistan war spending for the current fiscal year caused by the ongoing addition of 30,000 troops in Afghanistan, whose purpose is largely to conduct a military offensive in Kandahar that 94 percent of the people there say they don't want, preferring peace negotiations with the Taliban instead."

Will a congressional rebellion bring the Afghan War to an end?

CounterPunch
by Mark Weisbrot

04/26/10

And so it is true for the people of Afghanistan, where spending for the army and police is programmed for $11.6 billion (61 percent of projected GDP) in 2011. If that doesn’t fit the definition of ‘unsustainable,’ it’s not clear what would. Not surprisingly, the Afghan people are looking for a way out. They want negotiations to end the conflict. But the United States says no. The U.S. and its NATO allies are preparing for a major military offensive, perhaps the biggest of the war so far, in the southern province of Kandahar. A poll sponsored by the U.S. Army showed that 94 percent of Kandahar residents support negotiating with the Taliban, rather than military confrontation...

Still Not Enough Troops For Afghanistan Operations

By Jeff Schogol

Despite the addition of more than 50,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan over the past year, there still aren't enough forces to conduct operations in the majority of key areas, according to a congressionally mandated report released Wednesday on progress in Afghanistan.

A look at costs of Afghan war to U.S. taxpayers

Obama has asked for $33 billion more to help fund 30,000 extra U.S. soldiers being sent to Afghanistan this year. He wants another $4.5 billion for beefed-up foreign aid and civilian operations in Iraq and Afghanistan this year.

Confidence in Kandahar campaign wanes

Last winter, Barack Obama, US president, gambled that a surge of 30,000 troops would save the war in Afghanistan. The bet will be decided this summer, in Kandahar, where soldiers are preparing to launch the biggest operation of the nine-year occupation.

"Imagine": A Simple Plan for World Peace

Eleanor J. Bader, Truthout: "The first time I heard John Lennon's 'Imagine,' I was a high school kid with little sense that the world could be different. The song stopped me in my tracks. Tears streamed down my cheeks as Lennon's visionary prayer for a world without religious or nationalistic swagger set my heart and mind racing."

Peace: A New Way of Thinking about Achieving and Preserving It

By Raymond G. Wilson
Emeritus Associate Professor of Physics, Illinois Wesleyan University

Warning: Some of the graphics and ideas in this document are for mature and thoughtful viewers.

Most people in the world have no conception of the enormity of the effects of nuclear war. Why? It was some 22 to 30 years after 1945 before the United States would allow people to see the truth of the nuclear devastation Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This was a human slaughter and the deadly evidence of it, in photographs of the victims, was confiscated by the American occupation forces, and not revealed until 1967, not by the US Government but mainly through the efforts of citizens.

Banks Are an Oligarchy

Bill Moyers Journal: "Moyers and economists James Kwak and Simon Johnson wonder whether the financial powers are more profitable, and more resistant to regulation than ever. How did Big Finance grow so powerful that its hijinks nearly brought down the global economy - and what hope is there for real reform with Washington politicians on Wall Street's payroll?"

Titan Over Wall Street

Eugene Robinson: "The politics of financial regulatory reform are simple. After the meltdown and the bailout, many Americans - perhaps most Americans - are inclined to see Wall Street as predatory and all-devouring. Striding into the lion's den and calling the beast to heel, as President Obama did Thursday, was a move without a downside."

Obama's Warnings About a Looming Financial Crisis Come Back to Haunt Bernanke

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "For those accustomed at looking into the memory hole, President Barack Obama's pitch to Wall Street bankers Thursday on backing a tough financial reform package currently winding its way through Congress shouldn't come as a surprise."

Senator Specter Takes On Wall Street Bankers

Greg Gordon, McClatchy Newspapers: "Sen. Arlen Specter said Thursday that he'd hold a hearing next month to examine Wall Street firms' potential conflicts of interest when they secretly bet against products similar to those they sold, and into whether investment banks were being penalized too lightly for their roles in wrecking the economy."

Corporate Reform Is Long Overdue: Am I Missing Something Here?

Jack Lohman, Truthout: "Perhaps I'm biased. I bought $25,000 of stock in a corporation that I thought had a good idea. Little did I know that the CEO also had a second idea: to drain the shareholder value through high salaries and bonuses, and then put the company belly up. My money went down the tubes, as did many others, though the CEO and executives made out very well."

Six Banks Control 60% of Gross National Product

Is the U.S. at the Mercy of an Unstoppable Oligarchy?

By Bill Moyers

The big banks became stronger as a result of the bailout. That may seem extraordinary, but it's really true. They're turning that increased economic clout into more political power. And they're using that political power to go out and take the same sort of risks that got us into disaster in September 2008.
