August 28, 2002 Justin Raimondo is on vacation. Today we present an appropriate classic from three years ago. This column demonstrates, once again, how accurate Justin’s predictions have been about the then-coming Bush Administration.

War in Iraq, War on the Rule of Law

The chorus of voices calling for the United States to attack Iraq grows louder. Recent weeks had seen growing controversy concerning the wisdom of such an attack, including controversy over the need for congressional approval for an invasion. The war hawk TV pundits have been busy working to quell the controversy by insisting the President … Continue reading “War in Iraq, War on the Rule of Law”

If This Man is a War Criminal Where is All the Evidence?

In the great film with Marlene Dietrich and Charles Laughton, the "Witness for the Prosecution" appears in court and gives exactly the opposite testimony from what was expected. You would not know it from our media – which passed over the event in silence – but the same thing happened at The Hague recently, in … Continue reading “If This Man is a War Criminal Where is All the Evidence?”

Bush Cutting Legal Corners: A Wartime Pattern

I can’t claim to know whether the Washington Post story was an intentional leak or represented enterprising reporting. But the news that lawyers for the Bush administration believe that a 1991 congressional resolution authorizing President Bush’s father to wage war in the Persian Gulf provides ongoing legal justification for the current administration to launch an … Continue reading “Bush Cutting Legal Corners: A Wartime Pattern”


Christopher Hitchens continues his devolution as the War Party’s favorite leftist, and by the time he’s done he may have invented a whole new school of thought: but, hey, come to think of it, he’s about 30 years too late: the neoconservatives beat him to it. It’s pathetic, really, to read his latest rationalizations for … Continue reading “CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS, NEOCON”

How Tony Blair Saved Britain

Despite having the money, the think tanks, and the media outlets, does it ever strike you what a pitiful ‘case’ the smack Iraq lot make for it? And add to that the small, but useful thing they have going for them – the fact that these somewhat tuneless praise-singers holler in support of American and … Continue reading “How Tony Blair Saved Britain”

Hiroshima Under the Shadow of 9/11

When Japan’s Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi rose to speak at Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park at 8:26 a.m. this past August 6, that is to say, precisely 11 minutes past the sounding of the Peace Bell which commemorates the world’s first dropping of the nuclear bomb, he could have barely imagined the negative impact his address … Continue reading “Hiroshima Under the Shadow of 9/11”

Summer in the Strip

F16 Warplanes zoom overhead daily. In Rafah they’ve been breaking the sound barrier. At night you can watch flares light up the sky so that the Israeli soldiers in their fortified bunkers all along the perimeter of the Gaza Strip and surrounding the illegal Jewish settlements on the interior can survey the area. The staccato … Continue reading “Summer in the Strip”
