and Warriors. By Israel Shamir.The
presumed barbarous Muslim custom of veiling women and keeping them
away from a stranger’s lusty eye annoys the accusers. An avid reader
of Washington Post would assume that the US attacked Afghans just
to bomb the veil away. As the first fruit of American victory in Afghanistan,
CNN presented sale of smut in smitten Kabul.
Ten Blows. By Vyacheslav Tetyokin.It
becomes clear that the intention to join NATO expressed by Mr. Putin
in an offhand manner last year reflected a long-matured idea of
a far deeper (than in Mr. Gorbachev's or Mr. Yeltsin's case) "integration
into the world community". It fact the intention is to squeeze Russia
into the Western economic, political and military system. Even as
a junior partner. Even at the price of sacrificing independent foreign
State of Mind.
By Israel Shamir.
The train rode through Haifa, and I thought of hundreds of thousands,
maybe millions of Americans, Jews and Christian Zionists, who lobby,
pray, support and pay – no, not for the Jewish state built on the
ruins of Palestine. It would be bad enough; but reality is worse.
I thought of millions of Palestinians, rotting in refugee camps
and jails, dispossessed, expelled – not by the monster of evil occupation
and land grabbing, but by something worse – by a ghost.
Message to Troops, Would Be Troops, and Other Youth.
By Jeff Paterson
I might be like
the youth who are going down to the recruiters now, if I hadn't
spent those four years in the Marine Corps. Most of the time, my
unit trained to fight a war against peasants struggling against
"American interests" in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Guatemala. I
saw dire poverty in the Philippines; U.S. government-sanctioned
prostitution rings to service the U.S. armed forces in South Korea;
and unbridled racism towards the peoples of Okinawa and Japan-where
the standard response to a
child flashing us the two-finger "peace sign" was "yeaa, ha ha,
two bombs little gook."
New Russian Anecdote:
What is the difference between U.S.A. and Afganistan?
One -- is a savage terrorist state, governed by the illegitimate
government--a group of gangsters who stay in power by violence--and
populated by the blodthirsty fanatics who are ready to kill men,
women, old people and children in any part of the world only because
their views on life are slightly different from those held by these
savages at a given moment.
Another -- is a small country in Central Asia.

to commemorate the Baltic state's independence. Alina, was led away
by police saying that she was protesting against Latvia joining
NATO and Britain's role in the bombing in Afghanistan. She faces

Russian Cops Defend Their Labor Rights!
of the MIA in their struggle against the exploiting class have
established official fraternal links with the Federation of
Workers Unions of Russia, “Defense of Labor”. The ruling bourgeoisie
is terribly afraid of the alliance of the workers unions and
the rank-and-file troops of the MIA, and it’s doing its best
to disrupt it.
. By Irina Malenko
What I feel after the 11th of September here
in Ireland, is exclusion and discrimination. No, I am not a
Muslim and I do not look much different from the Irish people.
And yet, there is an invisible division line, sadly, created
by the majority of the Irish people, perhaps, even not realizing
it. It is their division between "us" and "them", "non-Westerners",
on behalf of the "civilized" West.
OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CUBA. There
is something that should be clearly understood by everyone,
and on which no one should entertain false illusions: in Cuba
there is not and there never will be either panic or fear. This
is the perfect atmosphere for serenity, cool-headed wisdom,
integrity, dignity, and unlimited courage.
Poll - World Opposes Military Action
full 32 out of 35 countries (the US, Israel and India in opposition)
favored a criminal justice response, rather than military action,
in response to the terrorist attack on America.
the Hunger Strike of the Russian Airlines traffic Controllers!
the 10th of October Russian trade unions, including Siberian
Labour Confederation, will begin their protest action against
the new Russian labour code that is neglecting the rights of
workers. The Russian government has been initiator of introduction
of this new code.
the Move. By Israel Shamir.
Europe be an incidental victim of American fury, like an innocent
bystander in a Western shoot-out? It appears to me that Europe
is rather one of the real targets of the forthcoming offensive.
It is not what the ordinary people of the United States wish,
but they are not being asked.
Salute to Barbara!
By Editorial Board.The
daughter of a retired lieutenant colonel in the US Army, Barbara
Lee was the only member of Congress on September 14th to vote
against the bill to
give Bush carte blanche powers to go to war however he saw fit.
420 House representatives and 98 senators voted YES and only
one brave woman -- while denouncing the terrorist act and demanding
justice for its victims -- refused to run with the lemmings
as they headed off to war. Russian
Left salutes you, Barbara.

IMPERIALIST POLICIES: THE ROOTS OF TERRORISM WORLDWIDE. By
Dave Silver. The
immediate danger is that of the justification of a protracted
war perhaps with tactical nuclear weapons against the masses of
impoverished Afghanis which can only encourage more terrorist
acts as well as the return of a McCarthyite and fascist-like police
state in the U.S. where people with the "wrong" ethnic names and
dress will be the main targets.
is NATO Decimating the Balkans and Trying to Force Milosevic
to Surrender? By Jared Israel and Nico Varkevisser
If the Russians and other people of the former
Soviet Union can regroup, achieve unity and create popular movements
with a Milosevic-type policy of national unity based on social
justice - a policy that defends the nation by mobilizing the
overwhelming majority of people for social justice - if the
Russian and other Soviet people can do this, they will not only
be protecting themselves, they will once again be protecting
the world, including the people of the U.S.
Letters to a Friend
By Irina Malenko ...They were not human
beings, but just faceless numbers for the Westerners,
including the majority of the Irish people - thanks to so-called
"free" media who would never dare to publish
on its pages or to show on its screens
what Western "fight for democracy" (read: thick wallets!) is
doing to the rest of the world.

Express. By Israel Shamir. Like
the Four Riders of the Apocalypse, the unknown kamikaze rode their
giant crafts into the two visible symbols of American world domination,
Wall Street and the Pentagon. They vanished in flames and smoke,
and we do not yet know who they were. They could be practically
anybody: American Nationalists, American Communists, American
Fundamentalist Christians, American Anarchists, anybody who rejects
the twin gods of the dollar and the M-16, who hates the stock
market and interventions overseas, who dreams of America for Americans,
who does not want to support the drive for world domination. They
could be Native Americans returning to Manhattan, or Afro-Americans
who still have not received compensation for slavery.

TERRORISM IN BELARUS Amazing revelations
have been made by the British daily “The Times”, which claims

in Belarus along the same lines as the support given to the “Contras”
in Nicaragua in the 1980s.

a recent dependent capitalist state is now in full collaboration
