Noam Chomsky: The Fate of Humanity Is at Stake

Noam Chomsky: The Fate of Humanity Is at Stake -- Why Are Romney and Obama Too Cowardly to Talk About What Really Matters? By Noam Chomsky

"There are two issues of overwhelming significance, because the fate of the species is at stake: environmental disaster, and nuclear war.

... Missing from the debate is the obvious way to mitigate or end whatever threat Iran might be believed to pose: Establish a nuclear weapons-free zone in the region"

Why I Dislike Israel and on Counterpunch by Philip Giraldi

"I have to admit that I don’t like what my own government is doing these days, but I like Israel even less and it is past time to do something about it. No more money, no more political support, no more tolerance of spying, and no more having to listen to demands for red lines to go to war. No more favorable press when the demented Benjamin Netanyahu holds up a cartoon at the U.N. The United States government exists to serve the American people, no more, no less, and it is time that our elected representatives begin to remember that fact."

Reader comments to this article are particularly interesting, not only because they support and extend Philip's argument, but because they are almost devoid of intelligent (or should I say clever) counter-arguments, which anti-Israel articles generally bring out of the woodwork.

It's Long Past Time to Admit: The Military Solution in Afghanistan Has Failed by Robert Greenwald

The title speaks for itself.
