10.18.04 “Kiss me, I am Irish” (Life and Death of Kenneth Bigley). By Sasha Litkevich. The plain truth is, Bigley came to Iraq to help "white" invaders to impose their will on the people with dark skin.

10.08.04 The Saga of Woods. By Israel Shamir. Communists a-la Woods would peacefully wait until the world bourgeoisie surrenders its power on the planetary scale.

Well let’s take a look at the recently concluded DNC.
6.29.04 D-DAY AND THE NEW NAZIS. By Dave Silver. How obscene for Bush to go to ceremonies of the 60th anniversary of D-Day and equate the heroism and cause of the anti-fascist struggle with that of Iraq. The political representatives of our profit system headed by GW Bush are the new Nazis.
