A war we can’t afford

Cato Institute
by Doug Bandow


The U.S. government is broke. Nevertheless, Washington is currently fighting two wars: one is ebbing while the other is expanding. How to pay for the Afghan build up? Democrats say raise taxes. Republicans say no worries. The best policy would be to scale back America’s international commitments. The United States will spend more than $700 billion on the military in 2010. The administration’s initial defense-budget proposal, minus the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, was $534 billion, almost as much as total military spending by the rest of the world. Even though the Iraq war is winding down, its costs will persist for years as the government cares for thousands of seriously injured veterans...

No exit

The American Conservative
by Andrew J. Bacevich

Since 1945, the United States military has devoted itself to the proposition that, Hiroshima notwithstanding, war still works — that, despite the advent of nuclear weapons, organized violence directed by a professional military elite remains politically purposeful. From the time U.S. forces entered Korea in 1950 to the time they entered Iraq in 2003, the officer corps attempted repeatedly to demonstrate the validity of this hypothesis. The results have been disappointing. Where U.S. forces have satisfied Max Boot’s criteria for winning, the enemy has tended to be, shall we say, less than ten feet tall... (for publication 02/01/10)

Congress spending like drunken sailors

Nolan Chart
by Jake Towne


Congress recently raised the debt ceiling by $290 billion in order to close out 2009 — but it almost wasn’t enough. As Zerohedge reports, spending surged by over $200 billion in two days, blasting through the old debt limit just after the bill managed to pass the Senate and hurriedly get rubber-stamped by the President. There is ‘just’ $140 billion left until the debt ceiling must be extended yet again...

Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR): Statement of Faisal Hashmi on Behalf of Family of Syed Fahad Hashmi


The law is lost

by Paul Craig Roberts


Hashmi is a U.S. citizen but his government has violated every right guaranteed to him by the Constitution. The U.S. government, in violation of U.S. law, is also subjecting Hashmi to psychological torture known as extreme sensory deprivation. The bogus ‘evidence” against him is classified and denied to him. Like Joseph K. in Kafka’s The Trial, Hashmi is under arrest on secret evidence. As the case against him is unknown or non-existent, defense is impossible. Hashmi’s rights have been abrogated by his government with the allegation that he is a potential terrorist or perhaps just a terrorist sympathizer...

The sins of Guantanamo

by Dahlia Lithwick


In light of America’s spontaneous discovery of the existence of Yemen on Christmas Day, it may make political sense to argue that Guantanamo detainees repatriated there will turn to terrorism. But it makes no more legal sense than their original incarceration did. The idea that we would hold onto these men based solely on a foiled terror plot connected to their country of origin shows how little factual accuracy matters when it comes to Guantanamo. A reminder: Despite Donald Rumsfeld’s famous assertion that the folks at Guantanamo represented the ‘worst of the worst,’ we know that the majority of the prisoners at the camp were largely just unlucky...

Guantanamo Recidivism: Mainstream Media Parrot Pentagon Propaganda (Again)

Andy Worthington, Truthout: "Last May, The New York Times uncritically published a front-page story entitled, '1 In 7 Detainees Rejoined Jihad, Pentagon Finds,' in which Elisabeth Bumiller, relying on an unpublished Pentagon report, stated that '74 prisoners released from Guantanamo have returned to terrorism, making for a recidivism rate of nearly 14 percent.'"


A Convenient Bomb Plot

By Finian Cunningham

So, just when the US public is growing increasingly weary of these trillion-dollar wars that are killing young Americans and innocent villagers with no end in sight and for no credible purpose, and just when Washington wants to expand its regional war into Yemen - we conveniently have the "Christmas Day bomb plot" with a Yemeni connection. Now, that is a gift for US war aims.

Report: US had intel to stop Christmas bomb plot

A new White House reports says the U.S. government had plenty of information to keep the alleged Christmas Day bombing suspect off an airplane.

How about asking WHY?

By Alan Hart

When George "Dubya" Bush and Tony Blair ruled the world and were pressing ahead with their "war on terrorism", I used to ask this question: Are they ignorant of history and don't know what they are doing and therefore stupid, or do they and/or some of the powerful vested interests which pull their strings want a Clash of Civilizations, Judeo-Christian v Islamic?

Actions You Can Be Involved In
