  • Wes Clark vs. the Military

    Wes Clark vs. the MilitaryBy Shawn | 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...

    Monday, January 26th, 2004 Democracy Now! 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. Since the 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia, General Wesley Clark has not...

    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...
  • Jamie Ruben, Clark and Genocide in Rwanda

    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...

By Doug Bandow Former General Wesley Clark has become the great hope for establishment Democrats seeking to stop frontrunner Howard Dean. Yet Clark, who has based his campaign on his foreign-policy credentials, actually has the strangest foreign-policy views of anyone in the presidential race. While Democrats were firing away at each other in the aftermath of the capture of Saddam Hussein, Gen. Clark was at the Hague, seeking to hype his candidacy by testifying at the U.N. trial of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. Clark, who prosecuted the...
  • TOUTING GENERAL FLOP SWEAT -- Wesley Clark As The New, Improved Howard Dean!

    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 legitimacy of ethnic patriotism George Jonas National Post Monday, January 12, 2004 Victorians tried to sweep sex under the carpet. Our era tries to do the same with ethnic nationalism. 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...

General Clark asked him to pass on this message to the online community and supporters. General Clark is outraged!

Here are the facts: Wes Clark has always said that there was some link between al Qaeda and Saddam's intelligence agents. But he has also always maintained that there is NO...

    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...

    The Leftist extremists now in charge of the Democratic Party are either so desperate or delusional they are now comparing this nation to Hitler’s Third Reich and the president to Hitler himself. The Voter Fund has sponsored a commercial ‘contest’ encouraging people “to help us find the most creative, clear and memorable ideas for ads that tell the truth about George Bush's policies.” Two of those submissions ran on the site and directly compared George W. Bush to Hitler and this nation’s policies with the Third Reich.  Upon seeing the ad, one has to ask, do they really...

    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. Wesley Clark testified at the United Nations international criminal tribunal in The Hague — where former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic is being tried on 66 charges, including crimes against humanity — Clark boasted to the New York Times that he is the only Democratic presidential hopeful "who's ever faced a dictator down. I'm the only one who's ever testified in court against one." 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. (Not that Milosevic or Serbian Radical Party...

    Clark's credibility gap - Jeff Jacoby December 22, 2003 Wesley Clark, the four-star general who commanded US forces in Europe during the Kosovo war, is running for president as an opponent of the war in Iraq. So what will he say, a questioner asks, when the Bush camp levels the obvious criticism: If General Clark had his way, Saddam Hussein would still be in power. "If General Clark had his way," the candidate instantly replies, "we'd have had Osama bin Laden dead or alive two years ago, and the world would have been a lot safer. And then we'd have...

The Cabinet of Prime Minister Costas Simitis has convened to discuss what officials termed the threat from an estimated 2,000 Bosnian Arabs to the Olympic Games in August 2004. Officials said Western intelligence agencies have assessed that some of those Arab nationals could be training to carry out attacks on Israeli, U.S. or other targets during the Olympics in Athens.

    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...
