Stupid Middle East Policy Benefits Some But Hurts Others – Israel Will Become Muslim Country

Stupid Middle East Policy Benefits Some But Hurts Others – Israel Will Become Muslim Country

Nouri al-Maliki

The US foreign policy is a mish-mash of mixed signals and mistakes. We have a habit of sticking our noses into other countries affairs using either the carrot or the stick to get what we want. We threaten Iran and North Korea while we offer other nations money to do what we want, but again with the threat of loss. But has this cornucopia of foreign interventionism helped the American people? Maybe, but maybe not.

If you were making money from weapons sales during the 1980s, when we were giving arms to Saddam, you were ahead of the game. If you have a son that is now fighting the war in Iraq, your fortunes may be quite different.

The Path to 9/11 – Democrats Hate it While Republicans Love It – Last Minute Changes in the Works

The Path to 9/11 – Democrats Hate it While Republicans Love It – Last Minute Changes in the Works

The ABC Television Network is reworking their “The Path to 9/11” docudrama after prominent figures in the Clinton Administration complained about inaccuracies. Of course those on the right, including talk show host Rush Limbaugh, say the film is the best documentary to come out on the subject.

The extra controversy only adds to the hype about the film and may increase viewer-ship. The network says there will be no commercials, and says they tried to accurately follow the 9/11 Commission’s report on the terror attacks. They also reviewed two books on the subject and based some of the series on interviews.

Blair Resigns After Losing Support For Iraqi War and His Backing of US Foreign Policy – Brown May Bring British Troops Home

British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, says he will be stepping down as PM within the next 12 months. There has been intense pressure for Blair to step down in an effort to end the infighting. This pressure has been fuelled by anger over his handling of foreign affairs. A report from the UK Guardian has suggested that Treasury chief, Gordon Brown, will be the next Prime Minister.

A recent poll conducted for a UK news station found that 58% say they want the premier to step down before local elections next May. Blair has not set a timetable, but said he planned to do so at a future time dictated by the "interests of the country".

President Bush Acknowledges Secret Detention Centers – 14 Detainees To Be Brought To Guantanamo Bay For Trial

President Bush Acknowledges Secret Detention Centers – 14 Detainees To Be Brought To Guantanamo Bay For Trial

Today, in a surprise move, President Bush announced that 14 al-Qaeda terrorist suspects held in secret detention camps in Europe and Africa will be transferred to Guantanamo Bay Cuba to face trial by military tribunal. The President also called for Congress to pass legislation concerning the special military tribunals.

This is the first confirmation of the secret CIA detention centers by the Bush Administration. The President said that this will not end the secret program and as more suspects are captured, the continued existence of the CIA secret detention program "will be crucial" in extracting valuable information through interrogations and in preventing new attacks on U.S. soil.

The President’s Speech – Despite Interventionist Policies Americans Are Still Not Safe

The President’s Speech – Despite Interventionist Policies Americans Are Still Not Safe

As we approach the fifth anniversary of September 11th, 2001, the Bush Administration has been turning up the heat on war protestors comparing them to Republicans and others who opposed the entry of United States into World War II before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The President today spoke about his progress and his ability to fight a war against terrorists that want to do the United States harm.

President Bush told an audience at the Military Officers Association of America convention in Washington DC that in “five years since our nation was attacked, al Qaeda and terrorists it has inspired have continued to attack across the world.” You should be asking yourself, what did he expect? Did he expect that an invasion of Iraq would prevent further attacks?
