Flashback to 1991: "Kuwait freed, Iraqis crushed" (tags)

"The [1991] war on Iraq was portrayed in the U.S. as a war without casualties. Yet, on the first day of air strikes against Iraq (Jan. 17, 1991), the U.S. dropped explosives equivalent to the explosive power of the Atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Throughout the duration of the bombing, explosives equivalent to seven nuclear bombs were dropped, in addition to internationally banned biological and chemical weapons."

Malaking porsyento ng bomoto kay Chavez ang hindi bomoto o nagabstain.Maaalalang nanalo si Chavez ng malaking kalamangan san akraang halalan sa pagkapagulo isang taon pa lamang ang nakaraan. Ihiharap sa nakaraang refrendum ang mga pagbagaong tutn go sana sa sosyalismo na umaabot sa 69 emyeda hiil sa pagbabago ng taning sa panunugkulan ni Chavez na ginawang isyu ng kanyang mga kalaban. Nagbibintang ang mga oposisyong maka-US nang diumano ay pag-agaw ng kapangyarihan o isang kudeta ni Chavez ang referendum noong Disyembre.

Kailgang handa ang mga sosyalista sa armadong panghihimasok ng US at mga kasapakat niotng burgesya sa Venezuela dahil hindi sila titigil na manggulo sa loob ng bansa.” “ Pinaaalahanan na ni Fidel Castro ng Cuba si President Hugo Chavez na mag-ingat at umiwas sa pagtatangkang siya ay patayin sa asasinasyon ng CIA at nga kanyang mga kaaway. Walang mawawala sa mga Chavista kung sila ay mag-iingat ayon kay Becker.

The Anti-War Movement Sourced the Democrats’ Victory! (tags)

The Democratic Party, read “The War Lite” Party, is basking in the glow of victory today. It has regained control of the House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate for the first time in 12-years. The two issues that it won on-The Iraqi War and the whacky persona of President George W. Bush-had little or nothing to do with the Democratic Party. Those two matters were actually sourced by activists in the Anti-Iraqi War Movement!

Opportunism, ANSWER and Palestine (tags)

It is so important that the movement against the war in Iraq draw the connection to all the wars the U.S. government is waging around the world. Inclusion of Palestine is a vital issue and an important part of building solidarity.

Ostensibly in response to a long-planned Washington mobilization against the World Bank and International Monetary Fund by forces in the anti- globalization movement, this article was a very clear call to put communists in the government's crosshairs immediately after 9/11.

HOW THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT IS BLOWING IT (tags)

Raining on a parade--or, in this case, an anti-war march--isn't likely to win one popularity contests. But somebody has got to raise the alarm. The upcoming Oct. 25 march in Washington DC is being billed as a revitalization of the movement which made history with coordinated worldwide protests against the looming US-led assualt on Iraq Feb. 15. But the new mobilization actually represents a dangerous step backwards for the anti-war forces in the US.
