is another reason that foreign intervention has not and will never work:
What would most
Americans do if any foreign power was to come to our land and start to make
decisions on our behalf? Answer: We would work night and day tirelessly and
with all the resources and tactics at our disposal (terrorist tactics for sure)
to throw the bums out.
Example: A no-fly
zone is enforced over south Florida by Cuba. What would we do?
Why in heaven's
name does anyone think that people in other lands are so different from us?

to Do With Cheney?
interesting article by John Utley on the value to Republicans of impeaching
Cheney, and the dynamics of the Republican split over the Middle East War. However
it strains credulity when he takes two pages of print to discuss impeachment
of Cheney without even mentioning the bill of impeachment that Congressman Dennis
Kucinich introduced in the House, a bill which has 14 or 15 sponsors now and
is only a signature from Congressman Conyers away from being introduced in the
House. Mentioning this and encouraging constituents to bring pressure to support
it would help to move it forward. Not mentioning it is reminiscent of the major
media's practice of never mentioning Kucinich's name, no matter how relevant,
in an apparently deliberate (and so far successful) effort to smother his antiwar
presidential campaign. Coming from Antiwar.com this behavior is at best peculiar.

listened with interest to Scott
Horton's interview with Stu Bykofsky. It was impressive to hear Scott Horton
hammering those points home. As for Mr. Bykofsky, he came across as not only
ignorant but arrogant as well. He did not contribute anything worthwhile to
any of his "arguments." So this guy, with his "real job," is a well-known U.S.
journalist? I am a Swiss resident so maybe the subtleties of U.S. journalism
are lost on me.
Keep up the good
work at Antiwar.com and Antiwar Radio! You are the real thing.

you very much.
I would prefer
it if my government's foreign policy more closely resembled your own.
Rangel is right: we need to have national service in order to make our elite
responsible for sending American girls and boys into combat. Warmongers who
watch the bloodletting as they sit in their dens, knowing it's the poorer kids
from across town who are doing the dirty work, are free to indulge their fantasies
without suffering the consequences themselves. Antiwar.com helps these warmongers
by using sophistry to fight against Charlie Rangel's proposal harder than warmongers
fight for their own objects. It will be no great loss if Antiwar.com sinks and
the elitists who run it lose their voice.
~ Willis Wade
crimes of the warmongers do not justify slavery of innocents anymore than the
crimes of al-Qaeda justify the bombing of innocent Iraqis.
who call for the draft so that the elite's children can be sent to war don't
understand the meaning of the word "elite."
