The Costs of War

by
I guess the president was right. He said he couldn't return the budget surplus to the American people because he was not confident we would "spend it right." If "right" means throwing the money down a Balkan rat hole, I am confident we Americans would not have spent it that way if we had been ... [click for more]

The American Empire Strikes Back

by
Has President's Clinton's renowned luck run out? It may well have. The president, who as a student protested the Vietnam quagmire, now appears to have found a quagmire of his own. His decision to lead NATO into combat against Serbia did two things that formerly looked nearly impossible: it lowered his ... [click for more]

Searching for Monsters Abroad

by
In a major foreign policy address delivered recently in San Francisco, President Bill Clinton solemnly affirmed that everything everywhere is the business of the United States.

Putting the Taxpayers at Risk, Part 3

by
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 What is driving support for the multilateral development banks (MDBs) is businesses' constant quest for government handouts.

Putting the Taxpayers at Risk, Part 2

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 The World Bank has also long promoted development at any cost. Bank loans underwrote Julius Nyerere's coercive "ujamaa" program and Indonesia's forced transmigration project.

Putting the Taxpayers at Risk, Part 1

by
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 President Clinton has not let a little scandal stand in the way of his ongoing attempt to scam the American people.

But perhaps he's using the scandal to distract us from his foreign adventurism. Many criticisms can be made about the president's White ... [click for more]

The Hypocritical War on Terrorism

by
President Clinton is continuing to agitate for new powers to suppress terrorists. He is demanding more powers for wiretaps, more powers to prevent people from using encryption for their e-mail, more powers to classify normal crimes as terrorist offenses, and so forth. As usual, Clinton's solution to every problem is more power for himself and his cronies. Clinton has ... [click for more]

The War Crimes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

by
When U.S. military forces dropped atomic bombs on Japanese civilians at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 275,000 men, women, and children were killed. Ever since, the killings have been justified by the claim that the bombings shortened the war and, therefore, saved the lives of American servicemen. Actually, the bombings constituted war crimes for which the perpetrators should have been tried and ... [click for more]
