From One War President To Another

Today is Lincoln’s birthday.

“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

— U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864
(letter to Col. William F. Elkins)

Afghanistan As Farce

Except that farce is funny.  Our friend John Grant looks at the Afghan corruption problem (clear it with Karzai!) and Sudan.  Sudan?  Get used to it.

Things To Know About Afghanistan

David Swanson spells out six things about the Afghanistan war that war supporters should know.  They are six excellent reasons to bring the troops home, save lives, and make a start toward reducing war spending by one trillion dollars over the next ten years.  The vote in Congress to increase funding may come up this week.  Our strategy must be to delay that vote into September, because by then the push for it may go away.  Call your congressman at 202-224-3121 and tell him you don’t want more money going to the Afghanistan War.
