Just visited their and they have nothing, NOTHING, on the Iraq War's 8th anniversary or the protests against it and the Afghanistan War tomorrow.
Why do you suppose that is?
Could it be because they just don't give a damn? Yeah, I think so too.
And having seen some of the comics that will be running at The Common Ills, I decided to check on Danny Schechter. You may not know this, but Danny made money off the Iraq War. He used it to fundraise and he also made a documentary on it and then published the screenplay to make more money.
So what does Danny have to say on Friday about the Iraq War?
Not a damn thing.
Is it a surprise?
Is it really?
Is there a greater piece of trash than Danny Schechter?
You sort of picture Danny with a white sheet tossed over his immense girth, riding through the night in search of a Black person to lynch, don't you?
Yeah, me too. There's just something about him that makes that image settle around him.
Don't be a Danny. Don't be The Nation. Take part in an action tomorrow protesting the wars. Demand the end of the wars.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
