How Did America Fall So Fast?

By Washington Blog

The best possible time to pillage is when your victim is at the peak of wealth. With America in a huge bubble phase of wealth and power, the Wall Street looters sucked out vast sums through fraudulent subprime loans, derivatives and securitization schemes.

The Three Fallacies that have Driven the War in Afghanistan

Case for escalating the war is based on premises that turn to dust on inspection

By Johann Hari

Obama has to decide now whether to side with the American people and the Afghan people calling for a rapid reduction in US force, or with a small military clique demanding a ramping-up of the conflict.

Cheney failed on Afghanistan

A day after former Vice President Dick Cheney charged the Obama administration with "dithering" over its strategy for the war in Afghanistan, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs returned fire with guns blazing.

How to get out

The Nation
by Robert Dreyfuss


There is no likelihood that the current US war in Afghanistan can achieve its aims (a narrower goal, the elimination of Al Qaeda, has for the most part already been accomplished). … Accordingly, the first step for Washington must be to abandon the idea of a decades-long counterinsurgency, fire its advocates — including Gen. Stanley McChrystal and Gen. David Petraeus, architect of the Counterinsurgency Field Manual — and admit that the multiheaded insurgency in southern and eastern Afghanistan can’t be defeated by military means. At the same time, the Obama administration will have to give up its massive nation-building project, dismantling the empire of US departments, agencies, provincial reconstruction teams and the rest now overseen by Richard Holbrooke, the US special envoy...

America’s uncontrolled debt and spending is the real “Waterloo”

Acton Institute
by Ray Nothstine


Religious left icon Jim Wallis has popularized the maxim, ‘budgets are moral documents.’ Yet the often repeated declaration is true in a way Wallis hasn’t envisioned, signaling bad news for Washington’s big spenders and those stuck footing the bill. Currently this country is facing no greater crisis than out of control spending and a mounting federal debt — a moral problem of prodigious proportions. The Office of Management and Budget is projecting $9 trillion in deficits over the next ten years. Washington’s leaders have long paid lip service to the crisis, but their actions betray their words. The national debt is closing in on $12 trillion and unfunded liabilities like Social Security, Medicare, and other entitlement programs total $60 trillion...

The Battle Against Letting Wall Street Continue to Make a Killing on Derivatives

Art Levine, AlterNet: "Early in the morning, outside the House Financial Services Committee hearing room in the Rayburn House Office Building last week, there were scruffy ex-homeless and other low-income folks, wearing their dreadlocks or sloppy jeans, mixed in with the pinstriped reps for the financial industry. They all seemed to be lining up to see what $223 million in financial lobbying in the first six months of this year could buy in thwarting real reform on Capitol Hill. And they were hoping to get the few dozen of the public seats available inside the room, for a critical 10 a.m. hearing marking up a bill that was supposed to regulate the now-private market in complex 'derivatives.'"

Military 'In War Against The White House'

America's Phoney War in Afghanistan

By F. William Engdahl

One of the most remarkable aspects of the Obama Presidential agenda is how little anyone has questioned in the media or elsewhere why at all the United States Pentagon is committed to a military occupation of Afghanistan. There are two basic reasons, neither one of which can be admitted openly to the public at large.
