Okay then, self-congratulations to you for thirty years of justice and peace!

How about those journeyman activists throwing their social justice experience around like it's inviolate because they've been at this longer than the whippersnappers trying to rock their slow boat to China. They know what works after thirty years of utter failure, and they'll admit to not a single inkling that their nonconfrontational passivism has only accelerated injustice and war. By what aggrandized blindness to irony can they congratulate themselves for their contribution to justice and peace? I don't care that they decorate themselves like the dumb soldiers above whom they hold themselves, but hear this: don't you dare coopt the enthusiasm of your youngers, or obstruct their path because their fresh directions offend you.

National demonstrations to stop US-NATO war against Iran to be held this week

This Saturday, there will be a national mobilization of the remaining elements of the US Antiwar Movement in demonstrations calling for an end to the US-NATO attack against Iran. Why do I call the people concerned with stopping this aggression 'the remaining elements'? Simply put, it is because the Democratic Party tied up liberals have overwhelmingly allowed the Obama Administration to demobilize liberal opposition to US government war making, when it is led by a Democratic Party President. See United National Antiwar Coalition website to get more info about these demonstrations.

US considers using 1917 Espionage Act to thwart Julian Assange and Wikileaks

The first targets of the regrettable 1917 Espionage Act were antiwar labor organizers against US WWI conscription. Read the March 1917 cover of the anarchist THE BLAST:   "This man subjected himself to imprisonment and probably to being shot or hanged under the new Espionage Bill   The prisoner used language tending to discourage men from enlisting in the United States Army   It is proven and indeed admitted that among his incendiary statements were---   Thou shalt not kill     and Peace on earth good will to men"

. "You don't Own Israel" in Hebrew...So, I was looking for a way to say it in Hebrew without being disrespectful to the Jewish people, especially as those in Israel and in the U.S. who oppose the War, wars plural... are accused by Likud as being anti-Semitic, Bibi Netanyahu even goes so far as spinning it like an old-fashioned turn-of-the-century "Zionist Plot" or "Papish Plot" or "Red Scare" or "insert religious, Ethnic or Political minority here Plot" and, Anti-Semitic. A quick rehash of MY take on that, we were called Anti-American for any opposition to any government official or policy in all our history. Oppose McCarthy? "Anti-Americans!" Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, blah blah blah...Criticize John Wayne or whatever other Faux Hero du jour, or any of the Wars they demanded we support and you guessed it we were the A.A. slur, personified. 13413

National Assembly is antiwar exclusively

Reports are emerging from July's National Assembly, the vital effort to unite antiwar forces into a common movement. Delegates from the major peace organizations hammered out a strategy to address Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Palestine. Missing from the consensus? Nonviolence, and good riddance. It goes without saying that humanitarian activists are peaceful. To legislate a dogma of non-confrontation plays right into the hands of the authoritarians. Here's the official report: 8263

Activists have so far failed to construct a real American Antiwar Movement

Despite the grass roots sentiment against all the bloodshed that Bush and now Barack Obama are engaged in, activists in the US have ever failed to construct a real Antiwar Movement. Do you consider that to be a harsh judgment on my part? Then please consider the fact that the US is moving towards the end of what will a decade long occupation of Afghanistan, and yet there has not been one antiwar demonstration, on even a local yet alone a national level, that has focused on opposing this! 7805

First Black President routs U.S. Antiwar Movement donkeys

Where is the US Antiwar Movement? What Antiwar Movement? Do you see an Antiwar Movement? Hell No (I won't go into the Streets)! No! I don't see any Antiwar Movement. See First Black President Defeats U.S. Antiwar Movement- A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford. He did what Colin Powell and Condi Rice couldn't do alone. Oh wait! Colin endorsed Barack, didn't he? 7422

Obama reneging on promises to pull US troops out of Iraq

Obama won the presidency based on the fact that most Americans found him to be credible on his promise to get US troops out of Iraq, whereas they didn't think John McCain had any commitment to do so. They got tricked and it appears that Obama today will merely restate the Bush promise to the Iraqi puppet government to get US troops out of Iraq by January 1, 2012. Look for numerous press reports to misstate that Obama is actually going to do nothing new in a manner similar to this one... Obama to Announce U.S. Troop Withdrawal in Iraq ...Read the details and you can see that it is basically the Bush plan gift re-wrapped for more liberal Democratic Party voters acceptance of it! 6689

NO TO NATO Protest 2009

A No to NATO Protest 2009 is being organized in Strasbourg, France, but where is the US Antiwar Movement? A similar protest against NATO should and could be built on the same date in Washington DC at the Pentagon, so why does the American Antiwar Community always give NATO a free ride? 6261

Arab dictator allies of US line up in support of Israeli terrorism against Gaza

Silence. Or worse yet even, efforts to blame Hamas instead of Israel for the new slaughter in Gaza. That's what the US allied Arab dictatorships imposed on the Arab world offer their people. Complicity. Many of these Sunni Arab elites (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, et cetera) are eager for the US to hammer the Shiite led Iranians, and have no solidarity at all with their own poor let alone the Palestinian poor of Gaza.... or Palestinians elsewhere for that matter. This is the opening battle of the war to bring about regime change in Iran for the Washington, D.C. rat class, and the Arab dictatorships controlled by the US government are fully behind the effort. 5862

UN Ambassador speaks of the hidden genocide against the Somali people

The UN envoy to Somalia, Ahmedou Ould Abdallah, has said there is a "hidden genocide" taking place in the country. Left unsaid is that it is the United States of America that is responsible for this genocide, but at least the reality of the massacre was broadcast to the world so that hopefully some action might be taken, Somalia facing 'hidden genocide' What does it say about the character of the American people what they have done to Somalia? 5821

Obama’s Afghanistan Surge and the ‘Peace’crat picnickers

What's that silence out there? It's the silence of all those supposed peacniks who turn out to be nothing but picnickers for the Democratic Party cons who are behind adding more US troops into occupying Afghanistan. You won't see them out protesting this new 'Surge' for war, or even talking about it. 5808

‘Patriotic’ pacifists and ‘Peace’crats to hold UFPJ lobbyfest gathering in Chicago

United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) will be holding a gathering in Chicago next week to start their plans for a 2009 Lobbyfest of Barack Obama. They still haven't figured any of it out and most likely never will. Ostensibly the UFPJ has not decided on doing anything just yet and the gathering is for the group to supposedly decide just what should be done? 5661

US corporations foist religious pacifism on Palestinians and not on Israelis

The US corporate community does big business annually with the Jewish Israeli military-industrial armaments crew to the tune of billions per year, but then turns around and funds religious pacifist values off onto the oppressed Palestinians! U.S. steers young Palestinians to pacifism by Karin Laub, Associated Press Now doesn't that just take the cake? You can bet, too, that the US 'Peace'crats just lap this stuff up, just like many do with their often playing along with the military's 'We're Green Campaign'. 5647

Iraq speaks up: Get Out, Occupiers!

How many times have I heard the words from Democratic Party type liberal smurfs, saying that demonstrations supposedly accomplish nothing? Yet how to explain that the Iraqis seem to think otherwise and just held a huge demonstration in Baghdad under conditions that Americans cannot even begin to imagine having for themselves? Iraqis stage mass anti-US rally. 5160

American death squads and torture in Somalia

Why are Americans so uninterested in what their government does in their name in Somalia? We certainly have shit loads of good liberal folk running around in circles demanding that the US government intervene militarily in Sudan, do we not? But we have a virtually total silence about what the US is doing to the Somali people. More blowback from the war on terror Why is that? 4970

Palin ready to start nuclear war with Russia

And you thought she had been told to shut up by her handlers! Instead, Sarah Palin is running her mouth and spilling the beans about the real direction that Dick Cheney already has the country moving in, and with Democratic Party silence and acquiescence. And that is not to mention the silence of the Democratic Party tied down US antiwar movement, too. Shame on us for allowing this to go on without any response! Palin takes hardline on Russian aggression Silence is Death.
