Why We Should NOT Root for Our Own Rulers... And Why It's Better If They LOSE Their Wars Why people shouldn't root for the U.S. even against reactionaries like ISIS, and why it's better for humanity if U.S. imperialist wars do not "succeed" or "win", but rather lose.

Scenes from Ferguson: the Uprising's Reach, and the Reaction by Larry Everest "I've been in Ferguson since November 22, and I don't think a day has gone by where there hasn't been a protest, most often multiple protests. There may be one at the Ferguson police station, and another in the St. Louis Shaw neighborhood, just south of the city center, or perhaps on one of the campuses: Washington University, St. Louis University, the University of Missouri St. Louis, and/or out in Clayton or West County..."

Repression, Resistance, and Rebellion in Police State Ferguson After Claiming to be a democracy that respects the people's right to assemble, speak, and protest, the government has deployed dozens of police, spies, and military organizations that have been planning for months about how to contain and suppress expected protests. They've arrested more than 500 people in the area since August, and have conducted widespread surveillance on political activists, organizers, and journalists.

Reactionary Islamic Fundamentalism and the ISIL (or ISIS) How Islamic fundamentalism and imperialism are reactionary forces that offer no way forward for humanity, and reinforce each other, even as they clash. Supporting either strengthens both. And this reality needs to be confronted.

More U.S. Killings and War Crimes in Iraq? HELL NO! Devastating condemnation of Obama's 'only American lives count' chauvinism and US crimes in Iraq - the toll on the Iraqi people rarely if ever mentioned in the US media, and why more US intervention is totally against the interests of the people - in Iraq, the region, worldwide, and the urgency of resistance.

Iraq: Behind the Escalating Civil War and U.S. Intervention & Where Our Interests Lie What's behind the Iraq crisis? Not essentially Bush or stupidity, but the dynamics and necessities of imperialism. Why the U.S. can't leave, has no good options, and how all this shows the rulers are not all powerful, revolution is possible, and how a legitimate, perhaps even revolutionary, crisis could emerge from these events.

U.S. Drone Strike: Illegal, Immoral, Illegitimate Civilian deaths are built into the logic of the US drone war and the whole "war on terror" -- drones are immoral and illegitimate tools in an immoral, unjust, and illegitimate "war on terror" aimed at preserving a world of terror and oppression, not ending it.

The Truth Behind "Core Interests" and "American Exceptionalism" - Dissecting Obama's Speech at the UN What are "core" US "interests" in the Middle East? A crucial issue for understanding why the US does what it does and the impacts on the regions' peoples. This article penetrates the fog of "diplomacy," "peace," and "negotiations," using Obama's own words, to expose the unjust, hypocritical, and imperial nature of everything the US does in the region.

A Frenzy of War Talk--Israel's Outrageous Threats to Attack Iran "First, whether bluff, actual attack preparations, or some other machination, this flurry of threats represents a further escalation of a very dangerous overall trajectory toward confrontation and possible war against Iran by the world's main capitalist-imperialist powers and their creation and Middle East garrison state--Israel."

"Egypt's Presidential Election: Emancipation Not on the Ballot" by Larry Everest "Egypt's vote may have served the agenda of the defenders of Egypt's intolerable social order, including the U.S., at least for now. But for the Egyptian people, it will not bring or open up possibilities for any meaningful change. Instead it is but another maneuver to keep the chains of oppression firmly around their necks."

"Money for Jobs Not for War"-- American Chauvinism + Reformist Illusions by Larry Everest "Why should antiwar demands focus first and foremost on the war's impact on Americans and their lives--and not on the victims of U.S. aggression: Pakistanis murdered in U.S. drone strikes, Iraqis rounded up and tortured by U.S. forces, Afghans seized and terrorized in night raids, and countless others? Aren't their lives every bit as precious as the lives of those who happen to live in the U.S.?"

The U.S. in Syria: Imperialism -- Not Humanitarianism "Rather, the imperialists' own words make clear that their maneuvers and machinations are aimed at seizing on the Syrian uprising to get rid of a troublesome regime, and strengthen Israel and overall U.S. imperialist control of the Middle East--and that any 'humanitarian relief' they may (or may not) provide is window dressing to facilitate that goal."

Threats, Aggression, War Preparations...and Lies--U.S. and Israel Accelerate Campaign Against Iran Just what is it the U.S. and Israel are really defending and seeking to preserve? They're working to preserve U.S. domination over this whole region in service of a global empire of exploitation imposed and maintained by massive violence. And if there's a debate among them, it's over how to best pursue that reactionary and criminal aim.
