Military Considers Recruiting Foreigners

The armed forces, already struggling to meet recruiting goals, are considering expanding the number of noncitizens in the ranks - including disputed proposals to open recruiting stations overseas and to put more immigrants on a faster track to US citizenship if they volunteer - according to Pentagon officials.

One flu over the cuckoo's nest

Competitive Enterprise Institute

Flu fearmongers must be quite depressed these days. Seasonal flu is late. Bird flu -- despite all the headlines -- hasn't gained much traction among humans. And we haven't had pandemic flu in 36 years. The good news is so good (for the rest of us, that is) that the flu lobby seems to be resorting to manufacturing fantasy flu statistics...

Somalia: US-exacerbated civil war in another nation

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


With Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Palestine already in or sliding toward civil war, one can correctly label the Bush administration's foreign policy the most incompetent in recent memory. But the problem lies deeper than that. The hyperactive, and often counterproductive, U.S. foreign policy is a bipartisan problem, best illustrated by the sordid U.S. history in Somalia...


Somalia: US foreign policy and gangsterism

by Justin Raimondo


In our Orwellian age, no one is surprised when American foreign policy takes a U-turn, and, suddenly, we are at war with Eastasia -- because, you see, we have always been at war with Eastasia. Yet even the most jaded observers are bound to raise an eyebrow over our embrace of the Somalian warlords, whose disarmament and capture was our announced goal the last time we intervened. That failed effort, you’ll recall, was dubbed 'Operation Restore Hope.' Now we are back, albeit semi-covertly -- using Ethiopia, a major recipient of American arms and technical support, as our proxy -- in a new project that ought to be named Operation Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here...

Iraqi leader upset by US abduction of Iranians

Los Angeles Times


Iraqi President Jalal Talabani on Monday protested the arrest by U.S. forces of two Iranian envoys who were in Iraq at his invitation, a spokesman said. Officials in Washington confirmed the detentions, first reported in the New York Times, saying the two officials were among an unspecified number of Iranians apprehended in raids last week aimed at groups suspected of plotting attacks against U.S. and Iraqi targets. ... None of the U.S. officials interviewed Monday would specify how many Iranians had been detained or provide details about the raids. Iraqi officials also refused to give details. ... The New York Times reported Sunday that the U.S. military was holding at least four Iranians, including senior military officials detained in two raids. It said the diplomats were apprehended Thursday while traveling in an Iranian Embassy vehicle. Embassy officials refused to comment Monday...

Troop "Surge" Plan for Iraq Meets Growing Opposition in US

The idea of having more American soldiers go to Iraq does not sit well with the public, and signals that emerged from Capitol Hill Sunday indicated the White House may face a very uphill battle if, as expected, it embraces the proposal to pour up to 30,000 new troops into Iraq.



Inside TV News: We Were Silenced by the Drums of War

Jeff Cohen writes: "For 19 weeks, I had appeared in on-air debates almost every afternoon - the last weeks heavily focused on Iraq. I adamantly opposed an invasion.... In October 2002, my debate segments were terminated. There was no room for me after MSNBC launched Countdown: Iraq - a daily show that seemed more keen on glamorizing a potential war than scrutinizing or debating it. The show featured retired colonels and generals resembling boys with war toys as they used props, maps and glitzy graphics to spin invasion scenarios."

The Morality of Think Tank Millionaires

by Nancy Levant

Depopulation of the masses and the land confiscation of global private property are the two primary goals of the elite one-world government. Private property provides wealth, liberty, and opportunity to the masses, which is abhorrent to those who believe themselves to be a higher and more intelligent species. In today’s world, this is more evident and obvious than ever before......
