Bush By The Numbers
Categories :: Anti-War :: Bush Administration :: Iraq

The latest numbres show the Bush Regime is still in the toilet of public opinion.




08/03/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
Those Last Throes Are a Doozy
Categories :: Anti-War :: Bush Administration

The Quagmire is STILL going badly... hence the term "quagmire."




05/20/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
Newsweek is Vindicated
Categories :: Anti-War :: Media

A U.S. Army report examined by the NYT provides too much evidence to deny Newsweek's recent and controversial article.




04/04/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
The Culture of Strife
Categories :: Anti-War :: Corporate Welfare :: Foreign Policy

The Bush Administration's defense-related spending spree is garnering criticism from BOTH the Left and the Right.




03/19/05 :: By S.M. Dixon
Words of Mass Deception
Categories :: Anti-War

Revisiting three of the lies told by the Bush Administration to sell Americans on the illegal invasion of Iraq, which marks it's second anniversary today.

Battling the Bush Wars
Categories :: Activism :: Anti-War :: Progressive Strategy :: Reference

The battle between the two Superpowers is underway. As the US continues to assert power under a second Bush term, the world's only other superpower continues to fight back.

One People Can
Categories :: Activism :: Anti-War :: Criminal Acts :: Iraq

Bush claims his 51% presidential election win as a mandate. He says this has given him political capital to use and he's going to use it. The global peace movement is considered the other super power in the world today and this last election has also given us political capital to spend as well. So Bring It On!

And The Beat Goes On
Categories :: Anti-War :: Campaigns :: Progressive Strategy :: Reference

For far too long Americans have been drunk with the delusions of democracy. Maybe it takes someone like Bush for us to realize that we've still got a lot to overcome. Like a drug addict who has loss everything, maybe America needed to hit rock bottom before sobering up. Listening to one another would be a good start, because if we had truly done that a year ago, we would all be smiling right about now.

Prisoner of Hope
Categories :: Anti-War :: Books :: Discrimination :: Election 2004 :: Philosophy :: Progressive Strategy :: Terrorism

It's difficult to begin to heal the deep-seated wounds of 9/11 with Osama Bin Laden still at-large. As someone who lost a friend during the World Trade Center attacks, the capture of Saddam Hussein and the assassination of his sons along with over 11,000 Iraqi civilians and countless Afghanis, didn’t make me feel any better nor did it bring me any closure.

The Anybody But Bush Bus
Categories :: Anti-War :: Campaigns :: Election 2004 :: Tactics

With just 40 days until this year's presidential election, many liberals and progressives like myself are terrified that George W. Bush may actually get a second term. Whether you believe the polls, the press, or the pundits really doesn't matter because there is only one bottom line concerning this election: we're in serious trouble.

New York City Welcomes Bush and the Republican National Convention
Categories :: Activism :: Anti-War

I am a Manhattan boy and damn proud of it. At about 9:30 AM Sunday morning, I hopped onto the subway and joined over 200,000 patriots in a demonstration of democracy that could only send chills up the GOP's spine...And I took some pictures that will knock your socks off.

Iraq, Republican Robots and a Senate Report
Categories :: Anti-War

The news conference today concerning the release of the highly anticipated Senate Intelligence Committee Report on Iraq and America’s rationale for going to war proved highly interesting as well as revealing. The briefest analysis of the committee majority and minority committee chairmen revealed a glaring contrast.

Death is Death: Terrorism vs. Military Strikes
Categories :: Anti-War :: Philosophy :: Propaganda/Spin

Which is worse, death by terrorism or death by military strikes? Is there a difference? And if there is, does that difference matter? Do you think the families of the victims of either methodology feel any less pain and suffering because of the capabilities of the killer?

The World Needs International Order, Not a Religious Crusade
Categories :: Anti-War

When General William Boykin spoke out recently and described the war on terror as a religious crusade, my surprise was that there was any surprise. General Boykin was not out of step; he was clearly in step with Bush administration policy. George W. Bush, after all, has stated his belief that God tapped him to be commander in chief. Fast buck televangelist Pat Robertson has recently furnished his vigorous assent, stating that Bush will prevail in the November election in a landslide because God has ordained it. Bush also believes that one cannot reach heaven without accepting Jesus Christ.

Reversing The Course: An Iraq Exit Plan
Categories :: Anti-War :: Bush Administration :: Iraq :: Progressive Strategy :: Tactics

The United States must make a dramatic reversal of course and recognize that the continued U.S. military presence in Iraq is destabilizing and counterproductive.

The Great Divider: Bandwagon Patriots Embracing War
Categories :: Anti-War :: Hypocrisy :: Iraq

American leadership is dependent upon maintaining the confidence and trust of its citizens and other nations around the world. Today that confidence and trust is at its lowest point. Why is the United States at the pinnacle of its power and the nadir of its political standing in the world?




05/22/04 :: By Delton Murphy
For Want of a War, The Truth Was Lost
Categories :: Anti-War :: Bush Administration :: Documentary :: Iraq :: Media

Highlighting the myriad of inconsistencies evident in the statements made by politicians and spokespeople in support of the war, such as the exaggeration of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, director Robert Greenwald strives to exemplify the clandestine motives that may have provided momentum to the war effort in his latest movie, Uncovered: The Whole Truth about the Iraq War.




05/21/04 :: By Delton Murphy
Signs: The War on Speech
Categories :: Anti-War :: Bush Administration

With President Bush’s credibility and approval rating slipping as steadily as sand falling through an hourglass, it is not surprising that there has been an alarming increase in the number of protest arrests and convictions across the country.
