U.S. Owes Iraq Trillions For Making Illegal War The U.S. has never paid Viet Nam for the death and destruction it inflicted in that war; it hasn't paid Nicaragua for its role there, and there is no sign it will pay a dime for the hell it raised in Iraq. But an authority on the Philosophy of Law says that it should and also that President George W. Bush, who made the war, and his cabinet, should be executed and Americans taxed 1% of their paychecks.

"Hiroshima" This poem is based on the reportage of John Hersey, found in his book "Hiroshima." The nuclear bombings of Japan overwhelmingly claimed the lives of civilians. This crime was compounded by the fact that Japan had already been saturated with napalm that destroyed much of 60 cities and the country was trying to surrender. Hiroshima was bombed on August 6, 1945.
