Book Review:
INSURGENT SYRIA, 1925
Occupied Iraq's Not-So-Distant Mirror
by Bill Weinberg, Middle East Policy

URGENT APPEAL TO OUR READERS

"They invaded Iraq knowing...that it was very likely to increase the threat of terror. That demonstrates what their priorities are. Furthermore, they're thoroughly reasonable priorities. They don't care about the threat of terror. What they care about is having military bases in a dependent client state right at the heart of the oil-producing region. That's important. Not because the US wants the oil—its going to get the oil one way or another on the market. But it wants to control the oil. A totally different matter. These things are constantly obscured. Control of oil has been known since the 1940s as a major lever of world control against your enemies. And US enemies are Europe and Asia—those are the regions of the world that could move towards independence. One of the ways to prevent that is to keep your hand on the spigot."

—Noam Chomsky, "War Crimes and Imperial Fantasies," interview by David Barsamian, International Socialist Review, September-October 2004

Exit Poll: Is it incumbent on anti-imperialists in the West to support Iran's right to develop nuclear power, as some on the left argue? Or is it possible to oppose imperialist designs on Iran while still maintaining a consistent position against nuclear development anywhere in the world?

"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America.

"Week after week and month after month for a long time to come we shall have a continuance of this miserable, wasteful, sporadic warfare... It is an extraordinary thing that the...civil administration should have succeeded in such a short time in alienating the whole country to such an extent that the Arabs have laid aside the blood feuds that they have nursed for centuries and that the Sun[n]i and Shiah tribes are working together."

—Colonial Secretary Winston Churchill in letter to Prime Minister David Lloyd George, Aug. 31, 1920

Exit Poll: How long before the US invasion of Bolivia?

(Yes, that's the same question we asked last month, but it is only more relevant now. Besides, we only got ONE reply last time. You slackers who don't even send us money at least owe us a reply to the Exit Poll to show that you are thinking. C'mon, then.)
