$1 Trillion for Wars Makes No Sense By Any Measure

By Mary Zerkel

What is $1 trillion really worth? - What is $1 trillion worth? NPP explains it this way: if you made a million dollars a year, it would take you a million years to earn $1 trillion.

Falling off the $1 trillion cliff

AlterNet
by Robert Greenwald

05/29/10

We fell off an ugly cliff this Sunday. At 10 a.m. on May 30, all of those little cost of war counters that have been furiously spinning away on countless websites crossed the $1 trillion mark. No alarm sounded. No bell rang. But, on the day before Memorial Day, the cost of the wars in cold, hard cash followed the human cost of the Afghanistan war into a new order of magnitude...

US Special Forces Pave the Way for a Military Strike on Iran

By Giles Whittell and Michael Evans

Such plans "are always going to be under serious consideration," Anthony Cordesman, of the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, said, "because you are dealing with a serious threat".

General Petraeus's Secret Ops

By Robert Dreyfuss

If President Obama knew about this, authorized it and still supports it, then Obama has crossed a red line, and the president will stand revealed as an aggressive, militaristic liberal interventionist who bears a closer resemblance to the president he succeeded than to the ephemeral reformer that he pretended to be in 2008, when he ran for office.

Corrupt mortgage giants escape reform

OpenMarket.org
by Hans Bader

05/24/10

There won’t be any reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the corrupt, government-sponsored mortgage giants that even Obama administration officials admit were at the ‘core’ of ‘what went wrong’ in the financial crisis. The ‘Obama Administration says Fannie, Freddie reform’ is ‘too hard,’ reports the Washington Examiner...

US debt crisis the result of bad behavior

Freedom's Phoenix
by Bill Bonner

05/25/10

The worst deficit on the east side of the Atlantic is not in Greece. It’s in England. And the worst household debt is not in Spain; it’s in England too. Not surprisingly, the pound is falling. This week, speculators are betting against sterling at a record level. And the US dollar can’t be too far behind...

The Contract from America should have focused on the separation of power

The Price of Liberty
by Robert Greenslade

05/24/10

The separation of power between the States and their federal government is the most important component of the federal system of government established by the Constitution because ALL of the powers granted to the federal government flow from this principle. Constitutionally, NONE of the powers delegated to the federal government can be invoked to change or circumvent this separation of power because the delegated powers come after the separation of power...

Obama’s war on his own “youthful irresponsibility”

Cato Institute
by Gene Healy

05/25/10

In his high school yearbook photo, President Barack Obama sports a white leisure suit and a Travolta-esque collar whose wingspan could put a bystander’s eye out. Hey, it was 1979. Maybe that explains the rest of young Barry’s yearbook page, with its ’still life’ featuring a pack of rolling papers and a shout-out to the ‘Choom gang.’ (’Chooming’ is Hawaiian slang for smoking pot.) Far be it from me to condemn our president for harmless (and amusing) youthful indiscretions. As his predecessor put it, ‘When I was young and irresponsible, I was young and irresponsible.’ But Obama’s older now, and he’s responsible for administering our nation’s drug policy...

After 16 months, U.S. troops are still in Iraq even though they were promised to be out

All’s quiet on the blogosphere front

The American Conservative
by Sean Scallon

05/25/10

So after 16 months, U.S. troops are still in Iraq even though they were promised to be out and the war has been escalated both in Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan but without any clear objective as to where all this escalation goes if it doesn’t succeed, or if there’s a simple strategy for success. And yet this situation, sadly, is not being protested outside of few nor really being acknowledge by many, either in the news or in the blogosphere...

Corporations Profit from Permanent War

By Bill Quigley

Boeing's directors include a former U.S. Secretary of Commerce, a former White House chief of staff, a former vice chair of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a former U.S. Ambassador and U.S. Trade Representative. It hosts the 10th largest political action committee, giving away more than one million dollars to federal candidates in 2009. Since 1998, it has spent $125 million lobbying Congress.
