FWIW, this final compendium of my work on Palestine spanning the years 2003–2020 is For The Record.
"Trump does not read much" (tags)
A new supposed weakness of the populist is now discovered: he doesn't read...Trump is certainly a new phenomenon. He pretends to be an outsider of the political system and of knowledge.

Response to Alan Hart's 'Palestinian people power - could it be a game-changer?' (tags)
To just respond to Alan Hart's largely rhetorical question embedded in the title of his article, there is no real Palestinian power ? people or otherwise. Disenfranchised masses, the wretched of the earth, like any other mob, are only power in the hands of Machiavelli. This is self-evident. It is even a truism. In the case of Palestinians on ground zero, they stand at the threshold of annihilation while those in Diaspora look on. The only recourse for Palestinians today to overturn that dismal existential state of affairs they have been brought to, is to clean their own house first of their house negroes and fifth columnists.
Is China?s Strategic Culture Anti-Militaristic? (tags)
The strategic culture of the People?s Republic of China (PRC) is a contested spiritual concept that is being debated both inside and outside of China and I hope my contribution will help add to this debate. In this paper I will explore the two main variants that go into making up the dualistic concept that is Chinese Strategic Culture so as to ascertain whether should be considered as anti-militaristic.
The White Man's Burden appears Uniformly Distributed By Zahir Ebrahim (tags)
‘If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.’ -- Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Who is the Enemy in the Afghanistan "War"? (tags)
In 1994 the US brought to power the Taliban, Koran students raised in Pakistan's refugee camps. Attacking Afghanistan on account of Al Qaida would be like bombing Germany on account of skinheads. Do German soldiers only defend the US' superpower claim, not our security?
Ag Industry Threatened by Animal Rights (tags)
As both the law and Big Ag respond to consumer pressures for humane treatment of animals, agriculture representatives fear a slippery slope that could lead to an end of their business as they know it, adding a meaningful wrinkle to the debate between so-called new welfarists and abolitionists, who ought to be teaming up in a full-court press on the industry (keeping them on the defense) rather than wasting time and efforts criticizing each other.

From Sun Tzu to Xbox: War and Videogames (tags)
From Sun Tzu to Xbox is a definitive history of the longstanding relationship between games and military culture, from wargaming’s roots in ancient civilizations, to the Cold War development of computing for battle, to a recent crop of Pentagon-funded shoot-’em-ups, big-budget commercial titles and homemade hacks.

On the anniversary of April 7--Return to the Oakland docks! (tags)
April 7, 2003 was a day we will not soon forget. It was our first protest against the war profiteers who operate out of the Port of Oakland. The police shootings which occurred on that day guaranteed that our commitment would be a long one. This year, on Wednesday, April 7th, we will return to the docks to protest the profiteers and reaffirm our First Amendment rights.
On the Ground, Straight From the Top (tags)
U.S. military commanders throughout Iraq have been saying for months -- almost unequivocally -- that they are winning the war against Iraqi insurgents, religious extremists and foreign terrorists in their sectors. This, even as attacks against U.S. forces increased across the country and a series of high-profile bombings and helicopter shoot-downs helped create the impression in the world media that the insurgents were gaining ground. Vernon Loeb, defense correspondent for The Post, asked commanders from the four major U.S. Army divisions in Iraq why they thought they were winning, and what they used as measures of success. Responding via e-mail, they had plenty to say. Excerpts:
CIA Spook says Iraqi Insurgents Take a Page From the Afghan 'Freedom Fighters' (tags)
Milt Bearden, a 30-year veteran in the C.I.A.'s Directorate of Operations, served as the Central Intelligence Agency's quartermaster and political agent to the Afghan resistance against the Soviet occupation from 1986 until the Soviets left in 1989.
The Crucial Alliance (tags)
Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) proposes an immediate US retreat from Iraq. Fighting back in the Terror War is not optional, but that doesn't stop Kucinich. He'll grant a victory to terrorists as long as it helps take down president Bush.

From "Plain Sailing" to "Where the Hell Are We?" to "Up the Creek (tags)
Barely into its second week Operation Easy Sailing is in big trouble. One simple way of measuring just how big is by adding up all the time you hear the phrases “all according to Plan”, and the “Our strategy is sound”.
'You No-Good, Unemployed, Communist Faggot' (tags)
It was Gulf War I, and I was marching up the old Post Rd. in Connecticut for Peace. I carried a sign reporting on the number of our soldiers that had been killed thus far, when a sleek, silver BMW pulled up alongside me. The profusely sweating, purple faced man, his bejeweled ringed, sausage fingers, tightly gripping the hand tooled leather steering wheel, spit in my face screaming, "You no-good, unemployed, Communist faggot!"
SPINNING FOR WAR - ALERT (tags)
As the case for war collapses from the weight of lies we have entered a dangerous period where the criminals in the White House are likely, in desperation, to do anything to get their war.
