All they have to do is brush the dust off from the "not in our name", "no blood for oil", "war is not the answer", etc placards, paste Vladimir Putins and Dmitri Medvedevs faces over Bushs or Blairs on the "worst ever", "mass murderer" and "real terrorist" placards and voila! ready to march for peace.

In addition, it inspires the loyalty of prominent cultural figures, intellectuals, and politicians.

If you thought Rangel's draft proposal was nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt, you would not be wrong. Of course, Rangel was in the minority party back then. However, now that the Democrats are in the majority in Congress, Rangel has proposed the SAME cheap publicity stunt over the draft again only to be slapped down by Nancy Pelosi who publicly nixed the idea.

A month ago, 47% said getting the troops home was more important while 43% focused on finishing the mission.

    BAGHDAD (AFP) - The US death toll in Iraq reportedly hit 2,000 amid a sharp spike in violence that killed 14 Iraqis as the nation awaited results of a key vote on a charter aimed at curbing sectarian violence. The US network CNN, quoting Pentagon sources, reported Tuesday that the number of soldiers killed since the March 2003 invasion of Iraq had reached 2,000 with the deaths of two more soldiers, a toll likely to add pressure on the US administration over its role in the violence-wracked country. For the first time, a majority of Americans believe the Iraq war...

Camilo Mejia spoke out against serving in a war he calls "a corporate war for oil." Mejia said it is extremely difficult for soldiers to say they disagree with war on moral grounds, as this is perceived as unpatriotic.

Dozens of organizations have been subjected to scrutiny, according to the ACLU, which was filing Freedom of Information Act requests with the FBI on Thursday to try to find out why.

International A.N.S.W.E.R. organizers also managed to lump Iraq into the equation, with the blanket statement, ''End All Occupations!'' And just to cover their bases, the banner above the stage read, ''U.S. Troops Out of Everwhere!'' The banner also called for the U.S. to ''End the Torture'' and of course, there were many references to Abu Ghraib throughout the day. But all in all, it was a pitiful display and the best they could turn out was 4000-5000 people....

    Anthem for Doomed Youth What passing-bells for these who die as cattle? Only the monstrous anger of the guns. Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle Can patter out their hasty orisons. No mockeries for them; no prayers nor bells, Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs, -- - The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells; And bugles calling for them from sad shires. What candles may be held to speed them all? Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes. The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall; Their...

    War record doesn't sway most voters By Michael Lollar Contact February 9, 2004 But how many times was he shot? A presidential candidate can have a degree from Yale, be a Rhodes scholar, have a daddy who was president or a wife who's a ketchup heiress, but can he take cover - or return fire - when under the gun on his military record? And do voters really care? "If you're shot four times I believe you're blessed by the grace of God, and you must have survived for a reason," says LeMoyne-Owen College international business major Christopher Walton. But...
  • What if al Qaeda Had Been Hit Pre-emptively?

    Imagine we had known in summer 2001 that al Qaeda was planning a strike on American soil that would claim the lives of thousands of innocents. Imagine that our pleas for cooperation to the Taliban, the government harboring Osama bin Ladens terrorist network, were rebuffed.Without certain knowledge, but knowing nonetheless that a massive attack was likelyand that the likely date was in Septemberwould the president have been justified in launching a strike at the Taliban to prevent a possible al Qaeda attack? What would the reaction among peaceniks have been had we taken out Mullah Omar and his merry band...
  • U.S. 'Dictatorship' Had No 'Search Warrant' for Saddam, Boston Globe Moans

    Derrick Z. Jackson, one of the most left-wing columnists for the left-wing Boston Globe, wrote today: "The invasion was still a lie. The capture of Saddam Hussein changes nothing about that. There were too many forked tongues in the road to his lair. The way we removed the dictator, we became a global dictatorship." According to dizzy D.Z.: "With no weapons, no ties, and no truth, the capture of Saddam was merely the most massive and irresponsible police raid in modern times. We broke in without a search warrant. Civilian deaths constituted justifiable homicide. America was again above the law....

    I sat between this incredible guy who had been on death row for eighteen years before being freed by the Innocence Project at Medill Journalism school (the winner of this years $100K Puffin/Nation prize) and Joe Wilson, winner of this years Ron Ridenhour prize. I asked Joe why Powell had turned out to be such a wimpfailing to use any of his prized credibility to put the breaks on his lying colleagues, and instead telling all those falsehoods at the UN and convincing a boatload of gullible reporters of a whole mess of stuff that just aint so. Wilsonwhose speech...

    They say opposites attract, but former diplomat Joseph Wilson and his wife, CIA operative Valerie Plame, are the exception to that rule. These two phonies make the perfect couple. Remember Wilson, he of the trip to Niger to probe the Iraqi purchase of yellowcake uranium fame? Lately, he's served the Democrats' cause as chief critic of President Bush's foreign policy. That is, when he's not busy officially endorsing the candidacy of Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and defending the honor of his wife, who was ``outed,'' Wilson smeared, by White House operative Karl Rove, a charge he's since backed away from....

    Ahhh, Those Lovable "Anti-War" Leftists in London.... The London StreetsWho are these anti-Bush people?By Amir Taheri LONDON George W. Bush's visit to London this week will be historic for at least two reasons. He will be the first U.S. president to come to Britain on a state visit. He will also observe a bizarre political marriage: one between the remnants of the Marxist-Leninist Left and militant Islamists. Negotiated over the past two years, the "wedding," will be celebrated in a mass demonstration against Bush's visit. The demonstration is organized by a shadowy group called "Stop the War Coalition," part...

    HOW THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT IS BLOWING IT by Bill Weinberg Raining on a parade--or, in this case, an anti-war march--isn't likely to win one popularity contests. But somebody has got to raise the alarm. The upcoming Oct. 25 march in Washington DC is being billed as a revitalization of the movement which made history with coordinated worldwide protests against the looming US-led assualt on Iraq Feb. 15. But the new mobilization actually represents a dangerous step backwards for the anti-war forces in the US. This effort displays more sanctimony than analysis, and the sloppy thinking in evidence is unlikely to...

    Why A Naked Bike Ride? Every day we are bombarded with countless messages demanding our obedience to the corporate dictates of a consumption dependent society. Little regard is paid to the future of our planet and generations left with a legacy of waste and environmental contamination. How many countless times each day do our media masters spin the same message: Unless you buy this, you are not worthy. Unless you look like this you should be ashamed. By cruising naked down the spending frenzy capitals of the world, we are saying.NO! ...a fancy new car is not a mark of...
