Obama v Wikileaks + Nixon v Pentagon Papers = War Criminals (tags)
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.

Should Noam Chomsky Reset His Compass? (tags)
Noam Chomsky was interviewed for the 2005 book, “Imperial Ambitions.” In it, he addressed the Iraqi War, but he failed to take on the hawkish Neocons. Chomsky said the war was about the “control of oil.” He also ignored the influential Israeli Lobby’s role in agitating for the conflict. In the introduction, a colleague said that he “misses nothing.” Question: How can that be true, if Chomsky missed the six ton elephant in the room - the Israeli Lobby?
