    Wes Clark vs. the MilitaryBy Shawn MacomberFrontPageMagazine.com | February 4, 2004 What is Wesley Clark thinking? The retired four star general, who won the Oklahoma Democratic presidential primary by a razor-thin margin, raised more than a few eyebrows recently when some saucy photos of him appeared in the gay culture rag, The Advocate. Sure enough, there is Clark on the cover of the magazine, his shirt provocatively unbuttoned, hands on his hips, looking rather…um, homoerotic. The picture is the first and (hopefully) last sexually charged image of  this year’s Democratic presidential primary. With Gert by his side, it’s obvious Wes is as...

Exclusive: Wesley Clark Admits Targeting Civilians In Yugoslavia In a Democracy Now! exclusive, General Wesley Clark responds for the first time to in-depth questions about his targeting of civilian infrastructure in Yugoslavia, his bombing of Radio Television Serbia, the use of cluster bombs and depleted uranium, the speeding-up of the cockpit video of a bombing of a passenger train to make it appear as though it was an accident and other decisions he made and orders he gave as NATO's Supreme Allied Commander.

    In just 12 weeks the world will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. That somber thought was on my mind as my friend, the distinguished African-American journalist Peter Noel, took me the other night for a tour of Harlem. We passed by Bill Clinton's office, and Peter told me how significant crowds, nearly all African-Americans, await the arrival most mornings of the man dubbed "America's first black president." That description – coined in 1998 by African-American Nobel laureate Toni Morrison – as well as the African-American rapture for Bill Clinton, is nothing short of astonishing. Calling Clinton...

    I was amazed to see that Wesley has Jamie Rubin as is advisor. Back in 1996 while there was slaughter going on in Rwanda Jamie Rubin refused to use the word genocide to describe the deaths of 100's of thousand. If he had used those very words, as he did to describe Kosovo, 100's of thousand would still be alive today. By US law if it were genocide we would have had to act. Some one should ask Clark if he were to win, would he use the same great talent out there like Jamie? While doing a bit of...

    NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE—As the Democratic candidates began landing here last week, this state braced for a surge of whirlwind politics before the primary. But during the recent spate of bitter cold, this northern front lay relatively quiet as events played out in Iowa. Dennis Kucinich, though, stoked some fire by telling teenagers at a high school in Penacook that some of the Pentagon's budget should go to pay for universal free public education through college. He studiously avoided the topic of abortion; he once was against it. Joe Lieberman, at a town meeting in Concord, promised to reverse Bush's partial...

    Today's recommended reading is another caustic hit job on the hypocrites of the Democratic Party by none other than America's favorite gun-toting, reactionary babe, Ann Coulter. Featured on her Web site, the column is entitled The Democrats' Idea Of A General. Ms. Coulter's column is an obvious rejoinder to the 'mainstream' press's latest campaign to position Clinton-sponsored presidential candidate, General Wesley 'Psycho' Clark, as the successor to Howard Dean as America's latest savior. Ms. Coulter's unsubtle message is the equivalent of, "Wake up people, this ex-General is out of his mind!" Here's how insightful Ann develops her argument: "DEMOCRATS are...

The Victorians had the tougher task -- sex has deeper roots in nature than tribal loyalties -- but the roots of ethno-cultural affinity go deep enough. In Serbia's elections last month, to the dismay of many and the surprise of some, the Radical Party won 28% of the vote. This translates to a plurality of 81 seats, or the biggest single bloc, in Serbia's 250-seat parliament. Another 22 seats...

    The question of the hour is, Can Howard Dean be stopped? Well, of course he can be stopped. His "lead" is enirely on paper. Not a single delegate has been selected. In my opinion, the air could go out of Dean's balloon with shocking suddenness. The only primary that he has more or less locked up is quirky, non-predictive New Hampshire. Beyond that, everything is wide open. The conventional wisdom is that the story of the Democratic contest so far is Howard Dean's success. In a sense, of course, that is true. But as I've said before, the real story...

    If Wesley Clark wins the Democratic Party nomination for president of the United States this year, it will be partly on the strength of his performance in the war over Kosovo. General Clark, who was NATO commander during the 78-day conflict in 1999, has made his conduct of the war a centrepiece of his campaign. Here, he claims, was an armed intervention that worked. Unlike last year's invasion of Iraq, which he opposed, the Kosovo war was, as he sees it, both necessary and successful. As his campaign ads modestly put it, in Kosovo he "stopped a campaign of terror"...

    After retired Gen.

Now Clark can boast that he's the only Democratic hopeful to testify against a dictator who quickly thereafter was elected to his country's parliament, as happened Sunday.

    Four years after it was "liberated" by a NATO bombing campaign, Kosovo has deteriorated into a hotbed of organized crime, anti-Serb violence and al-Qaeda sympathizers, say security officials and Balkan experts. Though nominally still under UN control, the southern province of Serbia is today dominated by a triumvirate of Albanian paramilitaries, mafiosi and terrorists. They control a host of smuggling operations and are implementing what many observers call their own brutal ethnic cleansing of minority groups, such as Serbs, Roma and Jews. In recent weeks, UN officials ordered the construction of a fortified concrete barrier around the UN compound on...

    The first important decision of retired Army General Wesley Clark’s new political career was the long deferral of its launch. As Clark lodged safely in the rear echelon, the other Democratic Presidential aspirants spent most of the year hustling money at fund-raisers, finessing the Iraq question, and trying to befriend every citizen of Iowa and New Hampshire. By September, a bleak common wisdom had taken hold among Democratic Party pros: the established candidates were struggling, and an outsider, Howard Dean, seemed destined to win the nomination but would be a weak opponent for George W. Bush. By mid-September, many Democrats...

    As a military analyst on television, Wesley Clark argued early that President Bush failed to make the case for the Iraq war. He predicted incisively that America would win quickly but face deadly trouble in the aftermath. Where some Democratic presidential candidates have criticized Bush's foreign policy and postwar leadership with the benefit of hindsight, Clark can claim to have raised similar questions with foresight. So far, so good, for his new presidential campaign. Less conveniently for his political aspirations, however, Clark at times heaped praise on Bush and his team for skillfully handling the Iraqi operation - even so...

    On the Fox News Hannity & Colmes Show of August 21st, General Wesley Clark said the President Bush removed Saddam Hussein “under false pretenses.” The General should know something about false pretenses, as he was the NATO military commander in 1999, during the military intervention in Kosovo. This operation, during our recent co-presidency, was designed to save Muslim Kosovo from a rabid Serbian leader. It was hyped by a media campaign that charged “ethnic cleansing,” but found little evidence of mass murder (unlike the killing fields of Iraq). The propaganda campaign included faked photos supposedly taken of starving concentration camp...
