Elisabeth Bumiller, The New York Times News Service: "Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta pressured Prime Minister Nuri Kamal-al Maliki of Iraq on Monday to tell the United States whether he wanted some American troops to remain in Iraq into 2012, although Mr. Panetta predicted that the United States military would have an 'enduring presence' for many years in the Middle East.'

Trickle-Down Cruelty and the Politics of Austerity

Henry A. Giroux, Truthout: 'The global recession has intensified the war on the American public, as professionals and politicians who make up a global business class now displace democracy with the call for austerity and, in doing so, produce a hidden order of politics in which the 'demand for the people s austerity hides processes of the uneven distribution of risk and vulnerability.' Under the guise of austerity, politically motivated attacks are now being waged on young people, low-skilled workers, the poor, African-Americans and the elderly.'

Freedom Politics
by Thomas J. Lucente Jr.

A president on the verge of a political breakdown

Our Future Blog
by Richard (RJ) Eskow


This isn t the first time the White House has floated the idea of Social Security cuts as part of a 'grand bargain' with Republicans, and it s not the first time there s been a groundswell of opposition. But that opposition has never crystallized so quickly into something deeper and more threatening to the President s political fortunes. Liberal pundits are turning against him and Democrats on the Hill are taking the fight directly to him. With a new poll confirming that Social Security cuts would alienate the other side's base and independents, this 'grand bargain' doesn t look like much of a bargain anymore...

Killer Drones Take the Place of War

Doug Noble, Truthout: 'What is different about this latest weapon of war that we oppose so strenuously?.. The answer is this: Killer drones are not primarily weapons of war, as usually defined, but instead are automated technologies designed for convenient, targeted killing or assassination outside of war zones. As mentioned, the usual targets are in countries we aren t at war with, far from usual areas of armed conflict.'


Drone strikes are police work, not an act of war?

Bungled US policy bearing fruit in rift with Pakistan


Next up: Pakistan
by Justin Raimondo


The ultimate prize for US imperialism in the Middle East - the jewel in the crown of the emerging American empire - is Iran, long the chief target of the War Party s attention. Yet they don t have either the resources or the political support for such an attack, and so the strategy, for the time being, is encirclement. First, Iraq and Afghanistan, buttressing the substantial US military presence in the Gulf - and now, Pakistan...

Bring the Troops Home

By Sheldon Richman

Politicians love nothing better than to pay tribute to 'our troops,' especially those who have made 'the ultimate sacrifice.'
