A I squared:

Artificial Intelligence: Product and Tool of American Imperialism by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-LA/People Against Racist Terror (ARA-LA/PART) Most of the fears expressed about A-I have focused on a couple of issues.

U.S.-Backed Roll of the Dice Leaves Ukraine in Worse Crisis

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies President Biden wrote in the New York Times in June 2022 that the US was arming Ukraine to “fight on the battlefield and be in the strongest possible position at the negotiating table.” Ukraine’s fall 2022 counteroffensive left it in a stronger position, yet Biden and his NATO allies still chose the battlefield over the negotiating table. Now the failure of Ukraine’s long-delayed “Spring [...]

The Silent Slaughter of the Flower of Ukraine’s Youth

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies As Ukraine prepared to launch its much heralded but long delayed counteroffensive, the media published a photograph of a Ukrainian soldier with his finger on his lips, symbolizing the need for secrecy to retain some element of surprise for this widely telegraphed operation. Now that the offensive has been under way for two weeks, it is clear that the Ukrainian government and its Western [...]

What Can the US Bring to the Peace Table for Ukraine?

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has just issued its 2023 Doomsday Clock statement, calling this “a time of unprecedented danger.” It has advanced the hands of the clock to 90 seconds to midnight, meaning that the world is closer to global catastrophe than ever before, mainly because the conflict in Ukraine has gravely increased the risk of nuclear war.

The Growing Chorus for Peace in Ukraine

Estimates of the death toll range from a confirmed minimum of 27,577 people, including 6,374 civilians, to over 150,000.

Casualties of War

Casualties of War: Truth, Journalism and Critical Thought by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action LA While forces on the right loudly lament so-called cancel culture, the real censorship is coming from the corporate and even so-called progressive media and the state. Consider the recent decision by the British to allow the extradition of Julian Assange, after years of house arrest and incarceration, to stand trial in the US on charged related to his [...]

From Mosul to Raqqa to Mariupol, Killing Civilians is a Crime

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies Americans have been shocked by the death and destruction of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, filling our screens with bombed buildings and dead bodies lying in the street.

Biden’s Reckless Syria Bombing Is Not the Diplomacy He Promised

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies The February 25 U.S. bombing of Syria immediately puts the policies of the newly-formed Biden administration into sharp relief. Why is this administration bombing the sovereign nation of Syria? Why is it bombing “Iranian-backed militias” who pose absolutely no threat to the United States and are actually involved in fighting ISIS? If this is about getting more leverage vis-a-vis Iran, why hasn’t the Biden [...]
