ELECTION DAY REALITY CHECK

Obama & Iran
Democrats and Republicans are of one mind in their resolve to step up undercover operations in Iran backed by the threat of a full-scale economic blockade or military action.
http://counterpunch.org/mayer10292008.html

Obama & Iraq
Obama says that Americans will have to tighten their belts because of the "cost of the war in Iraq." Doesn't that mean that the war will continue?
http://www.thenation.com/blogs/dreyfuss/378887/obama_and_iraq?rel=hpbox

Obama & Afghanistan
How would you explain to an Afghani child that Obama is the lesser of two evils when he's going to escalate the massive crimes against humanity the US and the NATO have already been committing in that country for the past seven years?
http://www.thecatsdream.com/blog/2008/10/happy-halloween.htm

Obama & Zionist Lobby
[H]e is considering a well-known, pro-Israeli Jewish congressman to be his chief of staff if elected.
http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/10/31/prominent-jewish-congressman-floated-obama-chief-staff/

Obama & Palestine
Bronfman, a former head of the World Jewish Congress, wrote in the piece titled "Israel's Best Interest is a Morally Strong America" that an honest broker was needed to push Israelis and Palestinians toward a two-state solution.
http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1033267.html

Obama & Neocons
Because of Obama's relative inexperience on foreign policy, it is this part of his team that is getting much of the attention, and one adviser in particular -- Dennis Ross, Bill Clinton's Mideast envoy whose record includes supporting the pro-Iraq War advocacy campaigns of the Project for the New American Century and serving as a consultant to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), a bastion of Israel-centric policy thinking in Washington.
http://www.ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=44546

Obama & the Surge
No lessons have been learned -- except of course the need to "surge," to escalate, to drop more bombs, kill more people, round up more captives, more quickly and more efficiently. This is what both Obama and McCain promise for Afghanistan, as Iraq withers away into a forgotten, smoldering ruin.
http://www.uruknet.info/?p=m48497&hd=&size=1&l=e

Obama & Rashid Khalidi
The Obama camp's response served only to reinforce the underlying assumption of the McCain campaign.
http://www.dissidentvoice.org/2008/11/the-racism-of-mccain-and-obama-and-the-media/

Obama & Detainees
"Now the majority of the folks in Guantanamo, I suspect, are there for a reason. There are a lot of dangerous people."

Obama & America's Outcast Muslims
"Obama has kind of thrown us under the bus."
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/uselectionroadtrip/2008/nov/03/uselections2008-pennsylvania

Obama & UFPJ
United for Peace and Justice, the largest antiwar coalition in the country, hasn't organized a major antiwar protest in 18 months because its leadership has made a priority of "voting out the Republicans" -- and by none-too-subtle inference, voting in the Democrats.
http://socialistworker.org/2008/11/04/obama-and-building-movements



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AFGHANISTAN

Taliban's new super-bombs threaten U.S. armor
"They've flipped MRAPs 15 feet in the air sometimes. And they break them in half."
http://www.usnews.com/articles/news/iraq/2008/10/31/talibans-new-super-bombs-threaten-us-troops-even-in-pricey-mraps.html

Colonial wars still can't be won
"You kill one guy, and then his brother or his cousin joins up to avenge his death."
http://www.newsweek.com/id/166825



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IRAQ

Iraqis: US still the villain
"Americans cause destruction wherever they go. The sooner they leave the better."
http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5hqg8OQ6KPpW43Ah2Z0YNUmw4zzxg

A "good day" for the occupation
"Any day I come out on the streets and nobody is shooting at me, is a good day."
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iraq/3367078/Iraqi-city-calls-for-US-raids-on-Syria.html

Another tour in Iraq, another tearful goodbye for Marines
"Between deployments, you forget how hard it is. If you didn't forget, you'd never be able to do it again."
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/iraq/complete/la-me-marine3-2008nov03,0,448619.story

Iraq's refugees still can't go home
"Two million Iraqi refugees are increasingly desperate and few of them are willing to return home."
http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/world/international-us-iraq-refugees.html

America and Iraq, rotted by war crime
The Iraqi people's heroic resistance to the most powerful military in world history should encourage the U.S. anti-war movement to take further action. It's time for all progressive forces here to redouble their efforts to demand an immediate end to the U.S. war and occupation, bring the troops home now, and affirm self-determination for the people of Iraq.
http://www.workers.org/2008/editorials/iraq_1106/



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PALESTINE

91 years of the Balfour Declaration
It was the cruelest act of colonialism.
http://www.imemc.org/article/51315

It's not just a few "extremists"
[T]he problem in the West Bank is not one of 'religious extremist' settlers; it is the entire Israeli 'matrix of control' and colony network that covers Palestinian land with land-grabbing, territory-fragmenting fortresses.
http://www.newstatesman.com/middle-east/2008/10/israeli-settlers-palestinian

Jewish settlers unrestrained
"There is unexplainable leniency toward terrorism from our side."
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20081031/wl_nm/us_israel_settler

Questions persist about Palestinian's encounter at border crossing
"I have checked out Mr. Omer's credibility and narrative of events, and I find them fully credible and accurate."
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-journalist3-2008nov03,0,3457568.story

Palestine's Judenrate
[O]ne can only conclude that these provocative and stupid inquisitions against Palestinian towns and villages, which PA officials claim are meant to restore law and order, are in fact Israeli-envisaged acts of repression aimed at further weakening the Palestinian society by Palestinians hands, very much like the Judenrate (or Jewish councils) did to the Jewish masses under the Nazi regime.
