Don’t be fooled by Karl’s November Surprise


Karl RoveKarl Rove's November SupriseThe Iraqi Government has “decided” to release the verdict from the Saddam Hussein “trial” on November 5th just two days before the United States General Election. It’s a move clearly intended to give the Bush Administration’s political party a boost in the polls as the corporate “news” media goes into a feeding frenzy of over exaggerated coverage.

While it cannot definitively be said that the reason the senior Iraqi court in charge of Saddam Hussein’s trial postponed its verdict in the case until two days before the November elections so that it would influence the midterms, the postponement suggests several obvious questions, including, most importantly: Given the Bush administration’s history of timing national security-related actions to the political calendar, has the date for the verdict’s release been set to provide maximum political benefit for the administration and congressional Republicans? – Media Matters

US Citizenship Sale: 4 years military service


The Department of DefenseI don’t think the United States should bribe immigrants to fight wars in exchange for citizenship.  If the US does not have citizens willing to sign up for our wars, there are much bigger problems.  We already successfully bribe young Americans who are poor with the opportunity to pursue a college education. 

A Washington Post article disagrees. A Military Path to Citizenship, By Max Boot and Michael O’Hanlon, Thursday, October 19, 2006; Page A29

Does anybody really think a fence (costing $ billions) will stop illegal immigration?

“Now is the time to consider a new chapter in the annals of American immigration. By inviting foreigners to join the U.S. armed forces in exchange for a promise of citizenship after a four-year tour of duty, we could continue to attract some of the world’s most enterprising, selfless and talented individuals. We could provide a new path toward assimilation for undocumented immigrants who are already here but lack the prerequisite for enlistment — a green card. And we could solve the No. 1 problem facing the Army and Marine Corps: the fact that these services need to grow to meet current commitments yet cannot easily do so (absent a draft) given the current recruiting environment.”
