Excellent "Blowback" Article by Chalmers JohnsonSubmitted by SeanW on Wed, 01/30/2008 - 01:14
I'm not sure I agree with Mr Johnson on many of his beliefs, but this is a very well written article.
UPDATE: And here's another one, where he states,
"by the end of March 2007, at least 280,000 American citizens had already contributed some $113.6 million to the presidential campaigns of Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Mitt Romney, Rudolph Giuliani, or John McCain.
If these people actually believe a presidential election a year-and-a-half from now will significantly alter how the country is run, they have almost surely wasted their money."
