Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive magazine, discusses his article “Stop the Bombing of Libya,” the 11,500 NATO sorties already launched in the name of enforcing a “no-fly zone” and “protecting civilians,” the real US agenda in Libya: regime change and control of oil, Obama’s excuse for ignoring the War Powers Act: it’s not war so long as no American soldiers get killed, the continuing quest for a unitary executive, why the US is not a force for good in the world, and why impeaching Obama is the best way to re-impose the rule of law on the renegade US government.
