Jim Kirwan | 2004-09-04 - The parallels between Iraq and Viet Nam are staggering in their similarities – yet no one in the DOD, the Pentagon or the White House seems to be aware of the obvious comparisons. Both wars began with lies. Neither directly involved the security interests of the United States or contained any real value when measured against the true price that would need to be paid to win either conflict.
Erik Fortman | 2004-09-03 - The gloomy situation leads me to wonder - how can 3rd parties develop an effective challenge to the two major parties. Voting for the lesser of two evils can never bring good. Yet, one can’t help but noticed the divisions within our divisions.
Erik Fortman | 2004-08-19 - The Muqtada al-Sadr incident, if he doesn’t die in the next few weeks (and I don’t think he will), is disturbingly similar to prior enemies-cum-comrades, cum-enemies again. Take Saddam Hussein, for instance. Let us not forget that he was backed by the CIA, propped up by Neo-cons to fight the Shah of Iran (who was, incidentally, put in during the ‘50’s. Read Sherman Skolnick.)
Joseph E. Fasciani | 2004-08-16 - Without a doubt, the most under-reported news story of the past month has been the ascension to power of the USA’s newest Puppet Who Kills (PWK), Dr Iyad Allawi, as its appointed interim Prime Minister of Iraqnam. Apparently it took a long time for them to find a man with a past as dark and vicious as needed for the job, yet one who wore a suit, instead of their previous PWK, Saddam Hussein, who often donned military outfits.
Erik Fortman | 2004-08-13 - The correlations between Kafka and Solzhenitsyn and America may not be obvious, but they are there. Kafka’s The Trial was published after his death in 1924. It has evolved into a literary classic that is perched high on the bookshelves of many intellectual dissidents. It is a fictional account of what was really going on inside Franz Kafka’s Prague, and behind the Iron Curtain.
Erik Fortman | 2004-07-10 - Is our “Democracy” actually a Communist government? For that, we will have to look to the very writings of Karl Mark in his “Communist Manifesto.” Many American boys have died in foreign lands to stave off the onslaught of the Red Armies. On the other hand, many of our leaders gave the Soviets and China their credibility. The fact is, the Dulles Brothers, Alger Hiss, even Eisenhower helped march us to the threshold of true Communism.
