More child killing in Afghanistan

More child killing in Afghanistan

Editors note: This is not an isolated incident. This happens frequently. This is not the way to make friends. Our military intervention has been a failure. Thousands of innocents have been killed along with many of our own young people. The cost in lives and money has been enormous. Now some neocon senators want us to attack Iran. More of the same. Insanity at its peak. We need to get our troops out of Afghanistan. The action there has made our country less safe, not more safe. Would you ... Full Story

NRA lies about school guards

Thousands of people in the United States die from gunshots every year. They are all tragedies, but some more than others. The ready availability of guns, the increasing ease of concealed carry and laws that shield people from prosecution when they shoot someone, all contribute to this national shame.

What to do about Iran

        Tomgram: Pepe Escobar, Obama in Tehran? Imagine, for a moment, a world in which the United States is a regional power, not a superpower.  A world in which the globe’s mightiest nation, China, invades Mexico and Canada, deposing the leaders of both countries.  A world in which China has also ringed the Americas, from Canada to Central America, with military bases.  A world in which Chinese officials openly brag about conducting covert ...
