“The United States must cultivate a mental view toward world settlement after this war which will enable us to impose our own terms, amounting perhaps to a pax- americana.”

"There's been much attention in the press about the fact that those who were left behind in New Orleans were disproportionately poor and African American. I've said publicly that I do not subscribe to the notion that the painfully slow response of FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security was racially-based. The ineptitude was colorblind."

Gates Gives Rationale for Expanded Deterrence
WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said Tuesday that the United States would hold “fully accountable” any country or group that helped terrorists to acquire or use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.The statement was the Bush administration’s most expansive yet in trying to articulate a vision of deterrence for the post-Sept. 11 world. It went beyond the cold war notion that a president could respond with overwhelming force against a country that directly attacked the United States or its allies with unconventional weapons.

US special forces launch rare attack inside Syria - U.S. Army
U.S. military helicopters launched an extremely rare attack Sunday on Syrian territory close to the border with Iraq, killing eight people in a strike the government in Damascus condemned as "serious aggression."A U.S. military official said the raid by special forces ... "We are taking matters into our own hands," the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the political sensitivity of cross-border raids.
The attack came just days after the commander of U.S. forces in western Iraq said American troops were redoubling efforts to secure the Syrian border, which he called an "uncontrolled" gateway for fighters entering Iraq The U.S. military in Baghdad did not immediately respond to a request for comment after Sunday's raid

U.S. EXPANDS STATE TERROR WAR

U.S. official confirmed attack by Special Forces to NBC's Richard Engel -- "al qaeda" the usual pretext

DEBKAfile’s military sources report: This was not the first US military incursion of Syria. Previous US strikes on Syrian soil in 2004 and 2005 targeted al Qaeda exit points to Iraq and involved bombardments and clashes with Syrian border units. These US attacks were discontinued for three years. Sunday’s operation was an extension of the US-Iraqi offensive to purge the northern Iraqi town of Mosul and northern Syria of al Qaeda elements, the jihadists’ last two strong bastions in the region.
According to eye witnesses, 8 US troops dropped by at least 2 helicopters stormed a farm house in Sukkariya and killed 8 people before flying back to Iraq. Damascus announced it held US forces responsible for “this aggression and all its repercussions.” It called on the Iraqi government to launch an immediate investigation into “this serious violation and prevent the use of Iraqi territory for aggression against Syria."...
DEBKAfile’s political sources note that the northern Syrian operation bears strongly on the US presidential campaign 10 days before voting. Both candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, will no doubt comment and if the attacks continue and meet with Syrian reprisal, they could become a focal campaign theme.[digest: apparently candidates not yet authorized to speak]

US cross-border incursions from Afghanistan drones firing missiles at Taliban and al Qaeda havens in Pakistan are ongoing. The latest attack took place Sunday night killing up to 20 insurgents.

Palestine Solidarity Principles of Unity

In April of 2008, NECDP held a conference entitled "Struggle for the Land: Imperialist Zionism and the Repression of Anti-Colonial Movements." The following document is a product of the workshops and the series of discussions that followed. We send it out as a call to organizers in movements for social and political change to adopt anti Imperialist-Zionist principles as part of their work.

**************

Palestine Solidarity Principles of Unity
www.onepalestine.org

* Confront Racism and Colonialism! : Imperialist Zionism is a form of white supremacy and European colonialism. "Israel" was founded on Zionism and is therefore an unjust and illegitimate state.

* Right to Return and Reclaim Land: Palestinians have a right to return and reclaim all of their historic land. All of historic Palestine should be decolonized.

* Right to Resist: Palestinians have the right to resist colonization and genocide and the theft of their land and resources. This includes the right to resist settlers (the primary genocidal force in Palestine) and the military. The struggle of the Palestinian people is part of a regional struggle against US, European, and Zionist imperialism.

Why should movements for social and political change adopt anti-Imperialist-Zionist principles as part of their work?

10/24 The Treachery of Noam Chomsky & Liberal Imperialist-Zionism

from Arabian Sights....

“...a few years later [after the establishment of the state] I spent several very happy months working in a Kibbutz and for several years thought seriously about returning permanently. Some of my closest friends, including several who have had a significant influence on my own thinking over the years, now live in Kibbutzim or elsewhere in Israel and I retain close connections that are quite separate from any political judgments and attitudes. I mention all of this to make clear that I inevitably view the continuing conflict from a very specific point of view, colored by these personal relationships. Perhaps [??!!] this personal history distorts my perspective.”

Protecting Israel: Chomsky's Way
Ghali Hassan

I've been involved in this since childhood in the 1930s. I was part of the Zionist movement, in fact, a Zionist youth leader, but I was opposed to a Jewish state, and that was part of the Zionist movement at the time. It was not the main part, but it was considered within the umbrella, so I could be an activist Zionist youth leader-the main thing in my life as a teenager- but opposed to a Jewish state, up until 1948.

Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien: Obama's New Advisor Stands By His War Crimes
Chris Floyd
... Barack Obama's brand-new foreign policy advisor, Colin Powell, wants you to know that he continues to support the decision to launch a war of aggression against Iraq in March 2003 -- an act that, according to principles established by the United States and its allies at Nuremberg in 1945, is a war crime punishable by death. In fact, the only thing that Powell -- the wise and steady statesman, the "grown-up," the "moderate" -- can find to criticize in the conduct of the war he helped launch is the fact that it wasn't savage enough to begin with (...) The fact that a gang of militarist extremists -- including good old moderate Colin Powell -- murdered a million innocent people in a blatant war crime committed in America's name is not... "fruitful to pursue," to quote Obama's own ringing phrase about his adamant opposition to any impeachment proceedings against the Bush Faction. But beyond Powell's understandable anxiety to shift attention away from the period of his criminal complicity, look again at this passage from his statement. Meditate on it, let it sink in deeply: ...my concern was not my past or what happened in Iraq, but where we're going in the future. His concern is not "what happened in Iraq." This encapsulates perfectly the view of the entire bipartisan foreign policy establishment. http://www.uruknet.de/?p=48109

First Colin Powell, Now…
George Packer, New Yorker Magazine
Ken Adelman, a lifelong conservative Republican...campaigned for Goldwater, was hired by Rumsfeld at the Office of Economic Opportunity under Nixon, was assistant to Defense Secretary Rumsfeld under Ford, served as Reagan’s director of arms control, and joined the Defense Policy Board for Rumsfeld’s second go-round at the Pentagon, in 2001... a bona-fide hawk ... intends to vote for Barack Obama.

the digest: MICRO EVENT: First, Mr-foreign-policy- let's-eliminate-Iraq-Biden, announces a world crisis, then General- fabricator-Iraq WMDs--Powell further defined ('what we don't even know about right now') Biden's promise of a 'generated international crisis less than 6 months after Obama's election, by pinning down the VP's forecast that ('we can't even know about right now) "there's going to be a crisis which will come along on the 21st, 22nd of January that we don't even know about right now."
