The US strike would take place after a 9/11-type terrorist attack on the US. However, the US attack would not depend on Iran actually being involved in the terrorism. In short, the planned attack on Iran would be analogous to the unprovoked attack on Iraq.

Ecuador, U.S., Oil, Pollution and Indigenous Rights - The combination of the sorts of economic reforms pressed by the United States, World Bank and IMF in the 1990s and the failure of the region's tremendous oil and gas wealth to benefit the poor and indigenous have led to a broad backlash against globalization across much of Latin America--illustrated by the rise of Hugo Chávez in Venezuela, the fall of Bolivian President Carlos Mesa in June and the elections of a range of leftists, from "Lula" in Brazil to Néstor Kirchner in Argentina, who've vowed to reject the old Washington Consensus and do more for the poor.

Africa Needs Justice Not Charity - the Western media’s backslapping over their governments’ “generosity” is more than a little exaggerated and somewhat premature

Aristide in Exile - When United Nations troops kill residents of the Haitian slum Cité Soleil, friends and family often place photographs of exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on their bodies. The photographs silently insist that there is a method to the madness raging in Port-au-Prince. Poor Haitians are being slaughtered not for being "violent," as we so often hear, but for being militant; for daring to demand the return of their elected president.

Aristide: "People in the Canadian government have Haitian blood on their hands" - Some people in the Canadian government yes, they have Haitian blood on their hands…. But not Canada as all the people of Canada or as one country….

July 16, 2005

Denmark Mulls Arrest of U.S. Flag Burners - Due to a strange legal quirk, those who burned the American flag during President Bush's visit to Denmark on July 5th could be arrested, but those that burned the Danish flag cannot. Danish police have yet to decide what to do.

July 14, 2005

Syria Seeks to Save Itself from America's Wrath - America's decision to freeze the assets of prominent Syrian officials is likely a political-media prelude to a military invasion of Syria, and attempts by Damascus to woo Washington are unlikely to do much good, this article from Saudi's Al-Riyadh indicates.

North Korea Says U.S. Tries to Brand It a 'Nuclear Criminal' - In an article in its state-run newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, Kim Jong-il and the North Korean regime claim that the United States is trying to smear Pyongyang's international reputation, and that the Hermit Kingdom is willing to give up nuclear weapons, as long as the threat of a U.S. nuclear attack is removed

DUBOIS WAS RIGHT - The great American historian/sociologist/activist W.E.B. DuBois was asked about the impending Soviet threat in 1958. He responded, "No country threatens us. We threaten the world." His assessment was as correct then as it is almost five decades later.

From the point of view of the U.S. government, Americans' ignorance and disinterest in their nation's history of "counter-terror assistance" to countries like Guatemala is a real boon. It makes it that much easier for the U.S. to fund, train, and equip nearly identical death squads in Iraq.
