Would Joe Biden, Like Hillary Clinton, Lose to Donald Trump Over the Iraq War? Joe Biden's support for the Iraq War and the key role he played as head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in getting the war authorization through the Democratic-controlled Senate not only has made him unpopular within the party's progressive wing, but has also raised serious questions regarding his electability.

Biden's Support of Iraq War Shows How He Would Run the White House Biden's support for the invasion of Iraq is not simply a "mistake." It is very relevant and says a lot about what kind of president he would be.

Biden Has Defended US Allies' Use of Lethal Force Against Civilians A look at Biden's Senate career has shown repeated occasions in which he has co-sponsored resolutions and issued statements defending Israeli attacks against civilian targets in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and Lebanon as legitimate self-defense.

Obama's Unconscionable Decision Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai has acknowledged that the goal of the offensive was to "send Gaza back to the middle ages," but Obama insisted that Israel's massive assault on the densely populated enclave was simply about "self-defense."

Abetting murder in Gaza The Obama administration's unconscionable decision to block a ceasefire effort by the UN Security Council resulted in additional civilian deaths. Those of us who supported Obama's re-election have a special obligation to challenge his unconscionable support for Israel's attacks against civilian population centers in the Gaza Strip. It was wrong when George W Bush did it four years ago. And it's wrong now.

Democratic Party Defends Israeli Attack International maritime law clearly gives crew members the right to defend their vessel from attacks in international waters. Apparently, these congressional Democrats believe, however, if you are attacked by the navy of a strategic ally of the United States, you have no right to defend your ship.

Israel's Latest Violation Israel's actions raise a number of questions. Why didn't the Israelis simply disable the rudders and guide the ships to port? Why did they have to board the ships with the guns blazing -- according to eyewitnesses, before some members of the crew picked up their "weapons" of wrenches and poles -- unless they intended to kill people?
