CBS announced more US troops to Iraq (no mention of how many mercenaries are deployed)–not to look for fictitious weapons of mass destruction this time but to fight ISIS, created by the US to perpetuate occupation. The Pentagon has put the people of Iraq through hell & made the country a killing field. But of course the president & generals consider it “worth it” (in the words of Madeleine Albright) to achieve US objectives.

First comes the grief at what our government does in our name. Then comes the fury.

The historic imperative remains: rebuild the international antiwar movement.
