The stinking mendacity of US media & politicians about the Manchester bombing is unbearable, if not traumatizing. Paul Ryan said he can’t get the image of the little 8-year-old girl out of his mind. Neither can the rest of us. But in response to the crocodile tears from politicians we have only one word: Mosul. To the crocodile tears from Assadists we have another word: Aleppo.
The historic imperative remains: rebuild the international antiwar movement on a principled basis demanding the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all foreign military forces from the Middle East, Africa, South Asia.
