Slaughter of Pakistanis by Remote-Controlled Aircraft Pauses, US Empire Does Not Crumble

On an article shared on Facebook by Zack Baddorf...

"Lull in U.S. Drone Strikes Aids Pakistan Militants"

In an entire decade we couldn't manage to hold a trial?

I've missed most news coverage, but i heard that Obama said "justice has been done" with our military's extra-judicial killing of Osama bin Laden. This is disconcerting given the lack of judicial process in this instance and the broader contempt for rule of law and legal process exhibited by the Obama administration and its predecessor. Not that i consider courts to be the only legitimate arbiters of the broad concept of justice, but when it's the president of my country talking about the crime of mass murder...

On War and Peace, and the right of people to support one over the other

People who peacefully broke into a high-security military compound to object to the insane nuclear arsenal there (for submarine-launchable Trident missiles) are being sent to prison for this non-violent civil disobedience, possibly for the rest of their lives, as we are talking about months in prison for a couple people in their 80s.

It was an a very stupid and evil decision by the government to prosecute and ask for lengthy prison terms. For shame.

No attack on Iran; evil U.S. and Iran governments must be resisted but war really is not the answer

Lest those who do know that both the Bush regime and the current Iranian regime are evil fool themselves into the wishful thinking that a U.S. attack on Iran would have any good at all:

What are you saying about West Virginia?

This one hits a little close to home:

Nothing says that poor people can't make good soldiers. But let's not kid ourselves. There's a reason so many of the dead come from high-unemployment, low-wage states like West Virginia. They're desperate. And desperate people are more tempted to accept a job that could cost them their lives.

Hi Dan!
