America Watches Its Stars Wane and Its Stripes Fade

Philippe Grangereau reports for Liberation on how the Afghan and Iraqi conflicts have damaged the global image of the US. Another contributing factor in damage is the US government's treatment of its own citizens: Luis Lema in Le Temps deplores the "counterproductive" stripping of Jose Padilla's rights before he was ultimately granted a trial, while Laurent Suply reports for Le Figaro on how US citizens will soon be subject to spy satellite surveillance by their own government.

Why interventionism fails

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

08/17/07

Aggressive wars are immoral: mass murder is unforgivable, and our foreign policy of global interventionism puts us in the same moral class as any of the European imperialist powers that blundered their way through Africa, Eastasia, the Americas, and the Middle East. Anti-imperialism is, first and foremost, a moral position, especially for Americans, who have always utilized the world stage to dramatize their own virtue. Yet the question of how, when, and if we ought to intervene abroad, either militarily or in some other, less obtrusive manner, can also be settled in its own terms. The case against interventionism can be made in a purely practical, empirical framework: i.e. it can be shown that it just doesn’t work. Not because the wrong people are in charge, not due to incompetence, the wearing of ideological blinders, or some other disability or shortcoming on the part of policymakers — but because it is simply not possible, no matter who is in charge...

Gilded Age Crime: Poor Go Homeless, Wealthy Get Bailouts

The Hill
by Brent Budowsky

08/17/07

It is good that today the Fed cut the prime by 50 points, but it is bad, and terribly wrong and unjust, that in the last week the Fed has essentially used Americans’ money to bail out the wealthy who made the profits, while doing zero for the foreclosed and homeless. When the banks, hedge funds and private equity firms make bad deals, they keep the personal profits, while the corporate profits are protected by bailouts. Meanwhile, when the average Americans in the middle class, or the poor, fall a little behind, they get the boot, they lose their jobs, they are thrown into the street without homes and often without food...

A small step toward free, fair and open elections

Liberty For All
by Brian Irving

08/18/07

Two North Carolina towns will take a step toward restoring free, fair and open elections in North Carolina when they conduct their October 9 municipal elections using the Instant Runoff Voting system. Libertarians commend town officials in Cary and Hendersonville, and the State Board of Elections, for testing this voting system improvement. We only wish other municipalities were as progressive and hope that next year 10 counties will follow Cary’s example...

Defense agency proposing more outsourcing

MSNBC

08/19/07

The Defense Intelligence Agency is preparing to pay private contractors up to $1 billion to conduct core intelligence tasks of analysis and collection over the next five years, an amount that would set a record in the outsourcing of such functions by the Pentagon’s top spying agency. The proposed contracts, outlined in a recent early notice of the DIA’s plans, reflect a continuing expansion of the Defense Department’s intelligence-related work and fit a well-established pattern of Bush administration transfers of government work to private contractors...
