Iran's Fuel for Conflict

By Gareth Porter

The Obama administration seems to have adopted a position that makes it impossible to achieve an agreement acceptable to Tehran and move towards a global settlement with the US. If this is the case, the US may have started down the long, dark corridor to confrontation.

Which Side Are You On?

Official and authoritative US policy for the use of nuclear weapons has first-strike plans to strike targets "intending to use WMD" against a US ally.

War, More War Or Morer War

By Ted Rall

What a joke! When you ask a bunch of generals and the secretary of defense for advice about a war, the results are pre-determined: more bang bang, more soldiers, more planes, more bombs, more coffins. The amazing part is how far we've traveled down the path towards all war, all the time.

Palin’s anti-science showdown

by Andrew Leonard


Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are at their highest point in 15 million years. According to the World Meteorological Organization, the current decade is the warmest on record, and the current year is the fifth warmest ever — observations that are supported by data collected by multiple climate research centers. Evidence of global warming comes from many reinforcing points — melting polar ice, rising sea levels, changes in plant and animal ecology across the globe. Palin’s assertion that we can’t ’say with assurance that man’s activities cause weather changes’ is far more highly politicized than anything that comes out of the Climate Research Unit. It is fundamentally anti-science...

US government policy: If it ain’t broke, fix it until it is

Liberty For All
by Donna Mancini


Governments run up the cost of essential goods and services, by making them so called ‘rights’ or entitlements. When something is ‘free,’ people overuse it. When it is paid for by other people aka third parties or insurance, the people using the goods and services don’t care what they are charged because they aren’t paying for it, which ultimately raises prices for all. Service providers are guaranteed payment by the government or insurance company, and not wanting to or having to deal with delinquent accounts like others in the so called ‘free market’ — (we cannot in reality say we have a free market in America because almost everything is regulated by bureaucrats) — providers hesitate or refuse to give care to those who do not have the insurance or government coverage...

Crime must have a consequence

Last Free Voice
by Donald Meinshausen


One of the reasons that crime is punished and the criminal so dramatically humiliated is so that others who might consider such acts are warned by the consequences of criminality. This is accepted as the basis of any society that holds to a theory of justice. For if it becomes relatively easy for a person to do crime and enjoy the fruits then what happens to the general mores of society? How do we uphold the standards of non-coercion, honesty, thrift and work? How do we instill a sense of guilt to the perpetrator? If we don’t then soon it will be regarded as foolish to work honestly. The country then can become a war of all vs. all where more and more assets are based on stealing and protection against rather than being engaged in productive behavior. A poor, frightened society ripe for tyranny emerges after such times. This goes in spades when we are considering the greatest theft in the history of civilization. The current international regime of Bush/Obama has orchestrated bailouts, nationalizations and inflationary debt that have run into trillions of dollars...

Congress less trusted than ever

Frum Forum


Cracking jokes about Congressional thievery is something of a national past-time. But the results of the newest Gallup poll will likely startle even the cynical news dorks that have read enough of these polls to know that the American people don’t think highly of their government. For the first time since Gallup began conducting its annual ‘Honesty and Ethics of Professions’ poll, a majority (55%) of Americans responded that they believe the honesty and ethical standards of ‘members of Congress’ are ‘low’ or ‘very low.’ The American people don’t think senators are particularly upstanding citizens either: 49% said Senators have ‘low or very low’ ethical standards...

Negotiate to end war

The Free Liberal
by Fred E. Foldvary


The U.S. government should negotiate a ceasefire and end to the war in Afghanistan. If such negotiations have occurred, they have not been publicized. It would take political courage to openly talk to the Taliban, but militarily there is little to lose by just talking. International negotiations got a bad reputation when the United Kingdom capitulated to the demands of Nazi Germany just prior to World War II. But negotiation does not imply surrender, nor does it condone what the enemy is doing. Negotiation means finding a compromise that provides each side with its minimum desires...

Normalising the Crime of the Century

By John Pilger

The purpose of the Chilcot inquiry is to normalise an epic crime by providing enough of a theatre of guilt to satisfy the media so that the only issue that matters, that of prosecution, is never raised. When he appears in January, Blair will play this part to odious perfection, dutifully absorbing the hisses and boos. All "inquiries" into state crimes are neutered in this way.

UK: Illegal, inevitable — Chilcot inquiry casts new doubts on Iraq war

Guardian [UK]


The government’s justification for launching the Iraq war was dramatically undermined today when two separate inquiries cast new light on the build-up to the invasion. Delivering the first independent assessment of the legality of the conflict, an official Dutch inquiry concluded that ‘the military action had no sound mandate in international law.’ It delivered its findings as details of Tony Blair’s support for the conflict emerged in testimony by Alastair Campbell to the Chilcot inquiry in London. … Campbell revealed that the former prime minister had assured President Bush in a series of private letters during 2002 that Britain would support a US-led war against Iraq...
