How Can America Wake Up From Its Post-9/11 Nightmare? We have been told that the criminal attacks of September 11, 2001 "changed everything." But what really changed everything was the U.S. government's disastrous response to them.

How Can America Wake From Its Post-9/11 Nightmare? Looking back on it now, the 1990s were an age of innocence for America. The Cold War was over and our leaders promised us a "peace dividend." There was no TSA to make us take off our shoes at airports (how many bombs have they found in those billions of shoes?).

Afghan Crisis Must End America's Empire of War, Corruption, Poverty The United States can either stumble on in its fruitless attempt to control the world through militarism and coercion or it can use this opportunity to rethink its place in the world.

Will Americans Who Were Right on Afghanistan Still Be Ignored? America's corporate media are ringing with recriminations over the humiliating U.S. military defeat in Afghanistan. But very little of the criticism goes to the root of the problem, which was the original decision to militarily invade and occupy Afghanistan in the first place.

Biden Must Call Off the B-52s Bombing Afghan Cities President Biden has reacted to America's snowballing humiliation in the graveyard of empires by once again dispatching U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad to Doha to urge the government and the Taliban to seek a political solution, while at the same time dispat

America's Afghan War Is Over, So What About Iraq - and Iran? People of good will all over the world hope for a peaceful future for the people of Afghanistan, but the only legitimate role the United States can play there now is to pay reparations, in whatever form, for the damage it has done and the pain and deaths it has caused. Speculation in the U.S. political class and corporate media about how the U.S. can keep bombing and killing Afghans from "over the horizon" should cease. The U.

How Biden's Nuclear Train-Wreck Helped Raisi Win Iranian Election Raisi has a record of brutally cracking down on government opponents and his election is a severe blow to Iranians struggling for a more liberal, open society. He also has a history of anti-Western sentiment and says he would refuse to meet with President Biden. Could Raisi's victory have been averted if President Biden had rejoined the Iran deal right after coming into the White House?

Why Democracies in G7 & NATO Should Reject U.S. Leadership there is a growing consensus in the US that the exceptional power of wealthy Americans and corporations to influence election results and government policies has led to a de facto system of government that fails to reflect the will of the American people on many critical issues. So when President Biden meets with the leaders of democratic countries, he represents a country that is, in many ways, an undemocratic outlier...

The Emperor's New Rules The world is reeling in horror at the latest Israeli massacre of hundreds of men, women and children in Gaza. In contrast to U.S. actions, in nearly every speech or interview, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken keeps promising to uphold and defend the "rules-based order." What rules could possibly legitimize the kind of destruction we just witnessed in Gaza, and who would want to live in a world ruled by them?

Squad & Co: Unite as a Block to Downsize Biden's Military Budget A month before the vote on the federal budget, progressives in Congress declared, "We've studied President Biden's proposed $753 billion military budget, an increase of $13 billion from Trump's already inflated budget, and we can't, in good conscience, support this." Now that would be a show stopper...

Trump and Biden's Secret Bombing Wars On February 25, President Biden ordered U.S. air forces to drop seven 500-pound bombs on Iraqi forces in Syria, reortedly killing 22 people. This airstrike predictably failed to halt rocket attacks on deeply unpopular U.S. bases in Iraq, which the Iraqi National Assembly passed a resolution to close over a year ago.
