Weapons of Mass Distortion: Bush's New Campaign of Lies About Social Security
Like a man shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater, like a charlatan trying to create a run on a bank, the president is trying to create a panicky run from Social Security among younger people with this new WMD-like campaign of lies.

Why America does not win hearts
It is almost three years since some American outfits started the quest for the reasons behind United States' unpopularity all over the world. Global polls were held to determine the degree of dislike in various parts of the globe. The results must have surprised many in Washington: it wasn't just the Muslims -- even the Europeans did not trust their ally.

Bill Moyers: There is no tomorrow
One of the biggest changes in politics in my lifetime is that the delusional is no longer marginal. It has come in from the fringe, to sit in the seat of power in the Oval Office and in Congress. For the first time in our history, ideology and theology hold a monopoly of power in Washington.

Nobody's Fool
Being "the other" involves a contradictory phenomenon. On the one hand, being "the other" frequently means being invisible...one will inevitably be perceived undimensionally; stereotypically; defined by mental sets that may not bear relation to existing realities. It disturbs, disquiets, and provokes distrust and suspicion, (Arturo Madrid, from MISSING PEOPLE and OTHERS)

This is the symbol for "Bushido" brushed onto a small-sized rice paper scroll. Bushido, literally translated "Way of the Warrior," was developed in Japan between the Heian and Tokugawa Ages (9th-12th century). It was a code and way of life for the fierce, but honorable Samurai.

Take a look at an object rescued from the memory hole. It's a New York Times article from the era of the Vietnam War: Peter Grose, "U.S. Encouraged by Vietnam Vote" (September 4, 1967, p. 2). Its lead paragraph reads: "United States officials were surprised and heartened today at the size of turnout in South Vietnam's presidential election despite a Vietcong terrorist campaign to disrupt the voting."

Why we protest
Do you have those annoying friends that pester you about going to protests? I sure as hell do. They keep asking you the same stupid questions like, "why do you do it," and, "You know you're not making any difference, why do you keep going?" When in those situation I usually just blasted my head off about the world coming to an end under Bush's regime. But I always wondered secretly in my head why I really do it.

IRAQ MADE SIMPLE: Shia And Kurds Give Sunnis "The Finger"
The Sunni are resisting the US occupation in arms. The Shia have not joined this rebellion, though Muqtada Sadr and his Mehdi Army fought the US Marines for Najaf last August. A central feature of Iraqi politics is that since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, the US has become steadily more unpopular in Iraq outside Kurdistan. This is true among the Shia as well as the Sunni. An opinion poll by Zogby International shows that the Sunni Arabs who want the US out now or very soon total 82 per cent. The proportion of Shia wanting the US to go is less than the Sunni but still overwhelming at 69 per cent. Shia religious leaders have been telling their followers to vote as the quickest way to end the occupation.

Deficits, the Dollar, and IEDs
Bill Gates, the world's richest man, is now betting against the dollar. "I'm short the dollar," says Gates. "The ol' dollar, it's gonna go down." Will the dollar be one day the target of attacks by hedge funds? Recently the dollar rallied a bit, but short-term fluctuations aside, the dollar has nowhere to go but down. Gradually or suddenly and precipitously? It may be possible to engineer gradual devaluation of the dollar and stimulate US export, shrinking the US trade deficit, but it turns out that "the US does not have adequate manufacturing capacity to eliminate the external deficit," according to David Hale. That means that the US power elite will demand that the US working class reduce consumption to haul the multinational ruling class out of the abyss of the US current-account deficit, at the same time as forcing the US working class to make greater and greater sacrifices as IED fodders, sinking further into the quagmire in Iraq. Can American workers fight back?

Sadr's Subtle Defiance of Demonstration Elections in Iraq
The January 30, 2005 elections in Iraq are the textbook definition of "demonstration elections." Unlike Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who issued "a fatwa saying all Shiia men and women have an obligation to vote in the upcoming election," the Moktada al-Sadr faction "uttered not a single word about the vote" at Friday Prayers, according to the New York Times, foreshadowing "a less than overwhelming voter turnout in many parts of Iraq" (Dexter Filkins, "Shiite Faction Ready to Shun Sunday's Election in Iraq," January 29, 2005). The Times insinuates that the Sadr faction are against democracy itself, solely by virtue of their quiet refusal to browbeat their vast following into embracing the elections tomorrow. Needless to say, the idea that it is people's right to evaluate whether or not an election is free, fair, and democratic and that boycotting an unfree, unfair, and undemocratic election is a time-honored tactic of democrats everywhere is unspeakable in the corporate media.

US Air Force Flies Its Combat Aircraft into Iranian Airspace
After Seymour M. Hersh's revelation that "[t]he [George W. Bush] Administration has been conducting secret reconnaissance missions inside Iran at least since last summer" (Seymour M. Hersh, "The Coming Wars: What the Pentagon Can Now Do in Secret," The New Yorker, January 24, 2005), more frightening news. Two newspapers on the left and right ends of the political mainstream report that the US Air Force is flying its combat planes into Iran's airspace, "templating" Iran's air defense positions, and daring Teheran to shoot US planes down -- an act that simultaneously prepares for the next war, serves as a provocation, seeks to create a pretext for war (if the planes are shot down), and (if nothing else) escalates its ongoing psychological warfare against Teheran.

The government would bring troops in to run men, women and children down like dogs....When we first started out, some people thought that the white people had some kind of conscience that we could deal with.

The Core Awakening of Resistance
The U.S. and Western imperialists have finally concluded that Muslim countries and nations, especially those of the Middle East, form the core of this awakening and resistance to their plans for global domination. They foresee that if they fail to control or suppress this Islamic awakening in the next few years with political and economic measures, through propaganda, and as the last resort through military aggression, all their plans for an absolute global hegemony and control of the most vital oil and gas resources, which make the sole powerhouse of their industrial machinery and cause of their material edge over the rest of humanity will come to nothing.
