In 1971, with the publication of the Pentagon Papers, Republican Nixon and his predecessor, Democrat Johnson, were exposed as war criminals in their massacre of 5 million Vietnamese, and eventually 1 million Cambodians and 58,000 Americans, and thousands of other people, for their war of anti-communism in Vietnam. The outrage was so great by 1968 that Johnson did not run for a second term. Now we have Wikileaks, exposing the war crimes of Democrat Obama and Republican Bush in Afghanistan, one of the poorest, most illiterate countries in the world, where the people are subject to US remote controlled drone attacks and daily killings on the ground to get the Caspian Sea oil, minerals and be poised to attack the biggest mineral prize, Russia. Meanwhile the US Congress, Democrats and Republicans, just voted overwhelmingly for more money to kill Afghans and anyone else disliked by US imperialism.

"Congress ratifies Obama escalation of Afghanistan war"
By Patrick Martin, 28 July 2010
Are you still registered Democrat? Obama promised to escalate the killing of the Afghan people while he campaigned for office. Aren't you ashamed you voted for him? We also have from Obama targeted assassinations around the world, more drone killings around the world from Nevada, done remotely, more privatization of the schools with charter schools, more deportations of undocumented immigrants instead of amnesty, the active prosecution and illegal imprisonment of Lynne Stewart, the continued illegal imprisonment of and the refusal to pardon or parole Leonard Peltier, the deadly threat to the civil rights of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the refusal to seize British Petroleum's assets to stop the oil catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico and the continued decline of the US economy as Obama encourages the enrichment of bankers at taxpayer expense while the workingclass starves.
