Good morning from Baghdad and beyond

16-06-2004 14:59

Good morning from Baghdad,

All oil exports from Iraq have been stopped. The “official” death count of U.S. troops has gone up to 835. Main stream press reports now openly admit that the majority of Iraqis want the U.S. out now. Failure, as it turns out is not only an option, it is the only option for imperialism in Iraq.

But beware. Bush and the neocons are now turning their sights on Venezuela. There they will employ “all means” to destroy that nation’s democracy and steal it’s natural resources. If they succeed they may well sack the entire planet. No serious progressive person of any stripe can afford to stand by on this one. Be informed and be active on this critical issue. Neither John Kerry or the NYTimes will ever help us out here.

After the Iraq war report please read the excellent piece from zmag on the situation is Venezuela and it’s significance. And be the media. Please share this news as widely as possible. Peace. Jamie

i read most of this and it seemed worth reposting! i remember when i was younger and festivals were not corporate sponsored. not that it is always a bad thing. sometimes the local council lends a hand etc.. etc.. it might help sometimes, but why should our communities in celebration become their advertising? and product testing grounds?
