What Would I Do?

by Gene Callahan

One question I'm asked from time to time is, "OK, if you're critical of current US policy in the war on terror, what would you do?"

It's true that it's always easier to be a critic than a performer.

However, there are a few things I do know, that seem relevant, at least to me.

Yet the overriding motivation behind US policies is to retain hegemony over the oil-rich Persian Gulf which provides about a quarter of the world's oil.

Financial Scams and the Bush Family

by Michel Chossudovsky

March 6, 2002

The Enron scandal is but the tip of the iceberg. Fully documented by the U.S. and British media, the Bush family has been implicated in a string of financial scams since the 1980s.

The following text based on a compilation of press excerpts (first published in December 2000 in the wake of the U.S. presidential elections) is self-explanatory.

The personal links between the Bush and Salinas de Gortiari families are also documented. The Salinas family was closely tied to the Mexican drug cartel.
