Ron Paul: World Worse Off 10 Years After September 11

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul thinks that the United States doesn't understand terrorism and that the country is worse off than before than the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

"We've made things much worse," Paul said on NPR's "Talk of the Nation" Wednesday.

Paul is a known opponent of war; he voted against both Iraq wars and the war in Kosovo.

"Before we invaded Iraq, the Iraqis had never committed any acts of suicide terrorism. By 2007, they were committing over 300 acts of terrorism against Americans or allies of Americans," he said.

Ron Paul and 'the Troops'

By Robert Oscar Lopez

While driving through Nebraska on the way home to Los Angeles, I was out of music. I had listened to all the CDs I had. FM was a desert. I switched to AM radio and since it was a Saturday, the only talk show I could get was a reprise of Sean Hannity's best moments for the week.

Pentagon Allows Near "Slavery" Conditions Among Foreign Workers

Pentagon Allows Near "Slavery" Conditions Among Foreign Workers
Sherwood Ross
American Pendulum
Thu, 01 Sep 2011 14:03 CDTMany of the 70,000 "third country national"(TCN) service workers employed in Afghanistan and Iraq "recount having been robbed of wages, injured without compensation, subjected to sexual assault, and held in conditions resembling indentured servitude by their subcontractor bosses," reports Sarah Stillman in a June 6th article in The New Yorker magazine titled The Invisible Army. In fact, the system resembles nothing so much as a twisted form of modern slavery.

Have Liberal Friends?

Cut and paste this into an email:

Candidate Obama on Debt in July 2008:

"The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic."

WikiLeaks: Iraqi children in U.S. raid shot in head

This is very sad. But getting the word out about things like this help show that we have no business being there and that it is damaging to our image and we are actively creating blowback.
==============================

A U.S. diplomatic cable made public by WikiLeaks suggests that U.S. troops executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians, including a woman in her 70s and a 5-month-old infant, then called in an airstrike to destroy the evidence, during a controversial 2006 incident in the central Iraqi town of Ishaqi.

WikiLeaks: Airstrike ordered to cover up U.S. shooting of Iraqi children

A U.S. diplomatic cable made public by WikiLeaks suggests that U.S. troops executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians, including a woman in her 70s and a 5-month-old infant, then called in an airstrike to destroy the evidence, during a controversial 2006 incident in the central Iraqi town of Ishaqi.

The unclassified cable, which was posted on WikiLeaks’ website last week, contained questions from a United Nations investigator about the incident, which had angered local Iraqi officials, who demanded some kind of action from their government. U.S. officials denied at the time that anything inappropriate had occurred.

But Philip Alston, the UN’s special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, said in a communication to American officials dated 12 days after the March 15, 2006, incident that autopsies performed in the Iraqi city of Tikrit showed that all the dead had been handcuffed and shot in the head. Among the dead were four women and five children. The children were all 5 years old or younger.

Wed, 31 Aug 2011

CDTA former aide to one-time U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell says former Vice President Dick Cheney fears he will be tried as a war criminal.

Demonstrators with Amnesty International call for the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into the roles of former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and other officials in the use of torture in U.S. counter-terrorism operations in front of the Justice Department in Washington on August 30, 2011.
Cheney's memoir, In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir, hit the bookshelves Tuesday, and piles criticisms and attacks on many colleagues during George W. Bush's administration, especially Powell, whom Cheney accused of undermining Bush.

However, Powell's chief of staff, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, told ABC News Cheney "was president for all practical purposes for the first term of the Bush administration" and "fears being tried as a war criminal."

August: Deadliest month for U.S. in Afghanistan

By Deb Riechmann - The Associated Press
Tuesday Aug 30, 2011 | Army Times

KABUL, Afghanistan — August has become the deadliest month yet for U.S. forces in the nearly 10-year-old war in Afghanistan, increasing pressure on the Obama administration to bring troops home sooner rather than later.

The 66 U.S. service members killed this month eclipses the previous record of 65 killed in July 2010, according to an Associated Press tally. Nearly half the August deaths occurred when insurgents shot down a Chinook helicopter Aug. 6, killing 30 American troops, mostly elite Navy SEALs.

Violence is being reported across Afghanistan despite the U.S.-led coalition’s drive to rout insurgents from their strongholds in the south.
