Rethink Afghanistan

President Obama has decided to send more than 30,000 extra troops to Afghanistan, at a cost of more than $100 billion/year. But America cannot afford a war that does not make us safer, and Congress has the power to stop the escalation. Vote NO on any spending bill that would send more troops to Afghanistan.

Iraq and Afghanistan

Why are we in Afghanistan? OIL!

We wanted a huge oil pipeline to go from the Afghan-Pakistan region to the Indian Ocean and the Taliban was in our way. So we got them out of our way which is what 9/11 provided and now we get our oil pipeline. Simple!

The permanent US military bases all correspond to oil areas and they are so massive that they rival the permanent bases in Europe. Here is a clue: we aren't leaving Iraq or Afghanistan any time soon. And the war has all been for oil. Blood for oil. At least that's how the oil is seen by the Bush Administration. So that's why American and British soldiers are dying in Afghanistan ... for a pipeline that the Taliban did not allow. The leader of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai was a consultant for the Unocal Oil Company.

Obama's peace prize is a joke

Barack Obama accepts the Nobel Peace Prize as he plans to expand the war in Afghanistan and continue many of George W. Bush's policies. Radio host Alex Jones says that Obama's actions over the past 11 months have shown that he is a complete fraud and the Nobel committee has made a joke of the peace prize by giving it to Obama.

Obama Far Outdoes Bush in Escalating War -- The Numbers Will Surprise You

As Obama announced plans for escalating the war effort, it has become clear that the Obama Illusion has taken yet another horrifying turn. Before explaining how the Af-Pak surge is a direct attack on the US public, let’s peer through the illusion and look at the reality of the situation.

The United States, its abandonment of law and worse

We have entered a period of government lawlessness, led by the United States, with inevitably serious consequences for everyone. Nuclear war is a possibility. With climate change threatening the planet itself, we do not need this as well. Europe must cease supporting this berserk state. It needs to recover the vision, the spirit of goodwill and humanity that laid the foundations of the European Union. In following America, Europe has lost its way.

American behaviour extends beyond inhumanity into viciousness. The character of Barack Obama, which in dealing with non-Americans is no different from that of George W. Bush, also shows the American characteristic of cruelty without limits.

Citizen's Arrest of George W. Bush for War Crimes
The Trial of "Splitting the Sky"

When Splitting the Sky broke through police lines in his attempt to conduct a citizen’s arrest of former US president George W. Bush, the Mohawk freedom fighter pierced a thick wall of tyranny. He broke through a tight phalanx of state protection for the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the peace.

With his courageous act, Splitting the Sky announced the unwillingness of millions of global citizens to tolerate any longer the culture of impunity that places a small, interlinked global plutocracy above the law. By breaking police lines, the Attica brother and American Indian Movement activist scouted a route of liberation for those of us seeking to get out from under the weight of complicity in international crime committed in our name. We are all deeply implicated in the state terror permeating the 9/11 wars because it is our tax dollars that fund these imperial assaults.

Splitting the Sky’s action in Calgary highlights the abject failure of law enforcement agencies to do their job. It highlights the unwillingness of police and those who direct them to apply the law equitably and independently.
