Stop Bush's War Machine
"Sometimes brute force can be useful," said Lt. Gen. Ronald Kadish, explaining why his bosses in the Bush administration want to add nuclear weapons to their insane Star Wars missile defense scheme. But Kadish’s words could just as easily be the motto for the Bush gang’s drive to war around the globe.

STAND UP AGAINST ISRAEL’S WAR

Slaughter in Jenin
"It is the end of life." That’s how one dazed man described the carnage and destruction as he fled from the Jenin refugee camp that Israel Defense Forces soldiers turned into a slaughterhouse.

Washington cheers on Israel’s war
When Lebanese fascist militias massacred up to 2,000 Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp in 1982, an Israeli inquiry found Ariel Sharon to be "indirectly responsible." Twenty years later, Sharon is directly responsible for another massacre of Palestinians--this time in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank.

Naseer Aruri: "Israel’s recipe for perpetual conflict"
No Israeli defense of its war on Palestinians would be complete without a reference to Yasser Arafat’s supposed rejection of "peace" at the Camp David summit hosted by Bill Clinton. But the facts are very different, as Naseer Aruri, author of The Obstruction of Peace, explains.

How can Palestine be liberated?
The only just solution is a democratic and secular Palestine, with equal rights for all. Achieving this will mean confronting Israel; its backer, U.S. imperialism; and the corrupt and dictatorial Arab states that collaborate with the U.S.

Protesters across the U.S. oppose Israel’s terror
Even as U.S. politicians declared their bipartisan support for Israel, thousands of people took to the streets across the country to show their solidarity with Palestinians.

COUP FAILS IN VENEZUELA

Bosses’ bid for power defeated by mass protests
A mobilization by Venezuela’s poor defeated a U.S.-backed coup and returned populist leader Hugo Chávez Frias to power.

A U.S.-backed coup that backfired
"When is a coup not a coup?" asked the New York Times’ Tim Weiner. "When the United States says so, it seems." Weiner perfectly captured the lying-through-their-teeth hypocrisy of the Bush gang and their support for the would-be dictators who briefly seized power in Venezuela last week.

THE REAL FACE OF THE "WAR AGAINST TERROR"

Sami Al-Arian: "This is like fighting ghosts"
Dr. Sami Al-Arian is a computer science professor at the University of South Florida who became the target of a witch-hunt after Fox News' right-wing talk show host Bill O’Reilly branded him a "terrorist." Here, he speaks with Socialist Worker about the struggle against George W. Bush’s war at home.

World’s cop
Anyone who still believes that George W. Bush’s "war against terrorism" is about justice for the victims of September 11 should listen to Bush’s foreign policy advisers--who are asking how "you capitalize on these opportunities" from September 11.

Disaster in the "new" Afghanistan
Every day brings more evidence that the new "liberated" Afghanistan looks like the old one.
