Biden: Israel has right to attack Iran

Israel has the right to attack Iran's nuclear program and the United States will not stand in her way, Joe Biden said.

Biden's Situational Sovereignty

By Benjamin H. Friedman

An Israeli attack on Iran would be likely to produce blowback, diplomatic or otherwise, that would damage us. Given that, our position should be that attacks on Iran are unacceptable, and would cost Israel our support.

Iran attacks Biden's Israel remarks

Iran will hold the US responsible for any Israeli attack against the country, Ali Larijani, the speaker of Iran's parliament, has said.

Attack on Iran 'very destabilizing' says Mullen

"I've been one who has been concerned about a strike on Iran for some time, because it could be very destabilizing, and it is the unintended consequences of that which aren't predictable," Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Fox News.

Is There Life After Democracy?

By Arundhati Roy

What happens once democracy has been used up? When it has been hollowed out and emptied of meaning? What happens when each of its institutions has metastasised into something dangerous? What happens now that democracy and the Free Market have fused into a single predatory organism with a thin, constricted imagination that revolves almost entirely around the idea of maximising profit?

A Few Facts About the Honduran Military Coup

By Ken Silverstein

There's very little truth to anything you've read about the coup in American newspapers.

A Class Struggle Unfolds

High Stakes in Honduras


When rallying in the streets of Tegucigalpa for the ousted President Manuel Zelaya, Alejandra Fernandez, a 23-year-old university student told a journalist why she supported Zelaya: "He raised the minimum wage, gave out free school lunches, provided milk for the babies and pensions for the elderly, distributed energy-saving light bulbs, decreased the price of public transportation, made more scholarships available for students."

US Not Talking Much About Iraq's Detention Nightmare

Nick Mottern, Truthout: "As most American troops reportedly are leaving Iraqi cities, the occupation enters a new phase in which it will become more clear whether the US-backed Iraqi government will be able to retain control without having US firepower instantly available to it in the street. In this situation, detention of Iraqi citizens, a key element of the occupation, may increase."

Wall Street's Toxic Message

Joseph E. Stiglitz, Vanity Fair: "Every crisis comes to an end - and, bleak as things seem now, the current economic crisis too shall pass. But no crisis, especially one of this severity, recedes without leaving a legacy. And among this one's legacies will be a worldwide battle over ideas - over what kind of economic system is likely to deliver the greatest benefit to the most people."

US Occupation of Iraq Continues Unabated

Dahr Jamail, Truthout: "We have passed the June 30 deadline that, according to a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) signed between US Ambassador Ryan Crocker and Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari on November 17, 2008, was the date all US forces were to have been withdrawn from all of Iraq's cities. Today, however, there are at least 134,000 US soldiers in Iraq - a number barely lower than the number that were there in 2003. The SOFA is a sieve, and the number of US military personnel in Iraq is remaining largely intact for now."

Independence 1776 - Independence 201x?

The Liberty Papers
by Brad Warbiany

The time between the Stamp Act and the Treaty of Paris was 18 years. Between the Stamp Act and the Declaration of Independence, it was only the efforts of those who were willing to call the actions of their government deplorable that ensured that the yoke of that government would be lifted. It is now time for those of us who love our country and despise the United States Government to stand up and do the same. The American people are an industrious people, and often have little time to devote to paying attention to the actions of our government. They have a media more focused on the daily lives of TV celebrities than the outcome of legislation that will affect everyone’s daily life. They have been educated quite literally by the state to see the United States Government as a trusted friend and helpful assistant. This must change, and it is the work of those of us who believe in liberty to keep the fires stoked and educate them to the truth...

In our heart of hearts, do we really think that Obama is an agent of change for the people? Have we not been fooled, yet again? So, we lay all of our hopes and dreams for a better life on one person and allow the inevitable heartache of betrayal to wash over us and once again drown us in disappointment when that person turns out to be just another politician...

Obama takes Bush’s plutocratic-socialism to the next level

Libertarian Today
by Chris Moore


It has been noted by observers of both Left and Right that the Obama administration has adopted nearly exact duplications of the Bush administration’s authoritarian policies in a multitude of areas, both foreign and domestic. And now it appears that Obama and the Democrats are only going to accelerate the economic plutocratic-socialism which became a problem during the Clinton administration, increased exponentially in the Bush years, and is poised to consume the entire country and its economy under the Obama presidency...

Tell Papua New Guinea and British Royalty: Climate Solutions Have No Place for Continued Industrial Primary Forest Destruction

By Ecological Internet's Rainforest Portal with Rainforest Rescue & July 6, 2009


Knighting of illegal logger and carbon market corruption plague Papua New Guinea's (PNG) attempts to receive carbon money for protecting rainforests. Let Prime Minister Somare, and England's Queen and Prince of Wales, know PNG climate and biodiversity protection under UN REDD carbon markets requires an immediate end to industrial primary rainforest destruction by logging and oil palm. And certainly no royal knighthood for criminal loggers.



How Many More Lies?

by Devvy Kidd

Each and every one of these "events" remains a cover up while the guilty walk free. I haven't forgotten and neither should every man and woman in this country. Millions refuse to look at the hard facts because they cannot and will not face the truth. These Americans willfully believe lies to protect their comfort zones. So be it. As for the rest of us who have taken the painful road to reality, we will NOT stop until the truth is exposed and the guilty brought to justice.........

Government Gone Mad in a Total Surveillance Society

by Tom DeWeese

Real ID is not a national ID card designed to protect us from terrorism and illegal immigration - it is an INTERNATIONAL ID card designed to track the movements of everyone wherever they go - anywhere in the world. As you read on you will find that it will get much worse, for Real ID is only the first step........
