07-03-2007 18:32U.S. foreign policy has not and will not change direction as long as the Democratic Party continues to be dominated by corporate interests and tacit compliance with the neoconservative agenda. The antiwar movement needs to understand this reality or it is doomed to collapse like it did under the pressure of the 2004 elections.
06-03-2007 22:46This is not the first such incident, as Israel violates the cease-fire, Lebanese airspace, and a legally-binding UN SC Resolution on a daily basis. These soldiers are no doubt nervous, as they know that Israel targeted and murdered several UN monitors during their assault on Lebanon, after UN personnel referred to Israel's actions publicly as "War Crimes".
06-03-2007 22:43Of course, this goes for all of the Fascists gathered around Bush, as their histories are filled with similar actions, professed Fascist ideology, and their fortunes were all built upon the human misery their actions have caused.

06-03-2007 01:43Is this U.S. Congress a modern-day version of the German Reichstag, the governing body that watched in silence and total submission as a powerful war machine was assembled and then launched those preemptive attacks that led to the horror of World War II?

Actually Venezuela spends less than Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, and, of course, the US-- Washington spends about 500 times as much as Caracas.
03-03-2007 02:02Anyone familiar with the criminal tactics of thoroughly corrupt State Institutions would not be surprised to learn of the plea bargain offered Guantanamo Bay detainee, David Hicks. After five years of torture and various other forms of physical and psychological abuse, the U.S. has offered a deal that would see Hicks released from Guantanamo but not necessarily from continued incarceration.

01-03-2007 21:21An interesting spectacle is occurring in Britain, with the very successful careerist as the authorised [by the state] left socialist platform grabber Viscount Stansgate [Oops! Tony Benn, how very populist sounding!] providing reliable guidance and protection for his successors Ken Livingstone and George Galloway as they find their spots as the next generation of elder statesmen doing the sales pitches for UK PLC. So close is Benn to Livingstone and Galloway that any visitor even from across the channel will be shocked to be told that these are persons of the left. They are very very happily doing the job for British military and racist propaganda that Blair could not dream of doing himself.
