Katrina, one year later: For black liberation through socialist revolution! (tags)
We revolutionaries insist that black liberation, including the conquest of full democratic rights for blacks in the US, can only be achieved through socialist revolution.

Neocon Goldberg Mocks Victims of Katrina (tags)
While New Orleans was reeling from the first deadly effects of “Hurricane Katrina,” Neocon Jonah Goldberg mocked the idea of placing some of the city’s refugees in the Superdome. This is the same warmonger who once wrote that the U.S. should “bomb Canada!” When France refused to go along with the Bush-Cheney Gang’s scheme to invade Iraq, he smeared the French people as a nation of “liars,” who were only interested in a “desire for oil.”

The leadership of the United States is literally a criminal syndicate operating in the service of a ruling class that is even more iniquitous. For the administration’s purposes, the expansion of America’s imperial war across the globe is not simply a chimerical pursuit for its own sake. It is a necessity, without which—in their view—American “primacy” will be eroded. In view of the U.S. administration’s determination, no catalytic event—however criminal—can be regarded as above the scope of its capability.
Katrina and the Neocons' Iraqi War: Wake-up Calls? (tags)

Isn’t it time for the American people to wake-up and take action to restore the Republic?
