Blowback, Provocation, and Perpetual War

Bush, Obama, and the Nine-Year 'Emergency'

50 Mind Blowing Facts About America That Our Founding Fathers Never Would Have Believed

Mosques, Book Burnings, Collectivism and War Worship


Gunning for Islam

by Justin Raimondo


Maybe [Geert] Wilders has been smoking too much of that strong Dutch weed, but to argue that we’re too tolerant to tolerate the intolerant seems a bit odd. Then again, Dutch neo-fascism no doubt suffers in translation. Wilders, [Pamela] Geller, and ‘Jihad Watch’ anti-Islam guru Robert Spencer want to import Europe’s Muslim-hating racist fringe to America: their thesis is that Islam is not a religion, but a political conspiracy to impose Sharia law on non-Muslims. They raise the specter of an Islamic States of America, with American women draped in the chador and mandatory mosque attendance — a scenario that doesn’t even qualify as credible science fiction...

America’s jihad on America

Mother Jones
by Adam Weinstein


In that moment, we could have redoubled our faith in the America that is New York. We could have affirmed the sentiment offered us by 60,000 solemn Iranians (Iranians!) observing a minute of silence in Tehran’s largest soccer stadium — a sentiment epitomized in Le Monde’s September 12 front-page headline: ‘Nous sommes tous Americains.’ We could have ushered in a new era of cosmopolitanism, not only abroad, but on United States territory, from Guam to the newly-christened Ground Zero. We could have. But we didn’t. We needed war — for, as journalist Chris Hedges wrote, war is a force that gives us meaning. And it continues to, not just abroad, but at Ground Zero...

The problem is empire, not Islam

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger


I suspect that the reason that so many Americans have gone off on the anti-Islamic kick is their steadfast refusal to confront the fact that the 9/11 attacks were the direct consequence of the bad things their federal government had been doing to Muslims in the Middle East prior to 9/11. It’s as if people perceive the federal government to be a sacred god, one that is all-knowing and all-good...

American history, American war, American empire

Campaign For Liberty
by David Gordon


It is hardly news that George Bush’s Iraq War has been a disastrous failure and that Barack Obama, learning nothing from his predecessor, has renewed and expanded our crusade in Afghanistan. Criticisms of recent American policy have not been slow in coming, and Bruce Fein, in this excellent book, has given us one of the best of these. But he does more than this. He embeds his criticism of our current military misadventures within a full-scale account of the history of American foreign policy...

When will the bad dream end?

by Anthony Gregory


In a normal country, war is front-page news. … The United States is not a normal country. If it ever was one, it certainly isn’t now. Its imperial foreign policy has long made it special, and now that it’s the world’s lone superpower — with an effective monopoly on aerial warfare, calling the shots as to who can have nukes, claiming the unilateral right to start wars against anyone — the U.S. government has become so belligerent, and especially in remote lands, that American wars have become routine, its casualties relegated to the back page...

Ground Zero mosque Imam blames Sarah Palin for 'growing Islamophobia':

The Muslim cleric behind plans to build a mosque close to the Ground Zero site has blamed politicians such as Sarah Palin for fuelling a "growing Islamophobia" that led to the burning of Korans on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
