The Poverty Draft: Recruiting The Working Class To The Frontlines (english)
03 Apr 2003
Modified: 02:53:04 PM
The US Military has long targeted the working class to become cannon fodder - from roping in starving Irish immigrants to fight in the US Civil War, to today's JROTC programs invading our impoverished public schools.

Fight In Iraq To Get American Citizenship (english)
03 Apr 2003
(IslamOnline.net & News Agencies) – As many as 15,000 soldiers fighting in the ranks of the American invaders
in Iraq are not seeking to “liberate” the Iraqi people or rid the country of the alleged weapons of mass destruction but only to earn the
American citizenship.

Leftist Lies About the War (english)
03 Apr 2003
Almost invariably, when protesters cry "peace" they mainly mean peace for their own minds – absolution from sacrifice or the need to make difficult choices. To that end, they are willing to wage total war against the truth. From accusations that America is starving Iraqi children, to accusations that Bush plan a silent genocide, to accusations that multibillion-dollar wars are fought over $1 billion construction projects, their version of reality requires reassigning motives and responsibility, downplaying or exaggerating facts, and fabricating fantastic lies.

The Soliloquy of Dakel Abbas (english)
03 Apr 2003
His name was Dakel Abbas, and he was a 21-year-old Iraqi soldier drafted in a village where along with his wife he lived raising cucumbers, onions, eggplants. A village near As-Samawah, central Iraq. Rather than a soldier, however, you would have thought him to be a survivor from a concentration camp. His head looked like a skull with a nose and a mouth and two eyes. His chest, a bas-relief of ribs hardly covered by skin. His biceps, tiny bones that could fit inside the palm of a child. (Saddam Hussein does not feed the troops very well.)

Foundation Cash Funds Antiwar Movement (english)
03 Apr 2003
The American antiwar movement is decked out with all the elements of the counterculture, but it is getting some very establishment funding.

In a few months, foundations and donors have kicked in millions of dollars to help antiwar groups stage demonstrations, take out expensive newspaper and TV ads, maintain Web sites, hire and pay staff, and lease office space in high-rent New York, Washington and San Francisco locales.

Why I Am Not Marching (english)
03 Apr 2003
Often, the executions have been carried out by the Fedayeen Saddam, a paramilitary group headed by Mr. Hussein's oldest son, 38-year-old Uday. These men, masked and clad in black, make the women kneel in busy city squares, along crowded sidewalks, or in neighborhood plots, then behead them with swords. The families of some victims have claimed they were innocent of any crime save that of criticizing Mr. Hussein. —John F. Burns, "How Many People Has Hussein Killed?"

Mike Farrell: Art of Deception (english)
03 Apr 2003
By now, Mike Farrell probably figures he’s got the nation fooled. For over 20 years, the Hollywood actor turned peace activist has flawlessly played the part of the pacifist patriot with America’s best interests at heart. Farrell is quite convincing when he’s in character, as he has been since he propelled himself to the forefront of the Iraq war protest movement. Without batting an eye, Farrell will tell you how much it would pain him to see Iraqi or American blood spilled in the unjust war on Iraq.
