The Antiwar Comic: The Warrior’s Last Protest
This one was a really special comic for me, because I think it hits home the real need for an antiwar movement in this country.  You don’t have to die on a battlefield to have your life destroyed by war.

The Antiwar Comic: Corruption is Universal
This strip was inspired with the protests in Mexico.  Roberto had a lot of input and helped me with the Spanish translation as well.

The Antiwar Comic: The Rain of the Dollars
This strip was my attempt to talk about some the economic impacts of war.  It’s so complicated and hard to jam into one page, but I think it came out well.  I could probably do a 100 page comic on this easy.  But for now, I like to stick with the broad strokes.

Mother: my son’s school misused its power when it said the US misused its power
Kara Sands’s son came home one day from school with a perfect 100% score on a quiz that asked “Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?” with the possible answers A) Other people just don’t like Americans, B) Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere, C) Terrorists hate everyone, or D) None of the above. The boy answered B.
This question and its correct answer are both misleading and a little annoying. Undoubtedly more people than just the mother and this writer believe they could have come up with something better, more educational. First off, the question asks “Why might” leaving an air of uncertainty in any answer. Of course, the answer is rather certain whether you’d rather hear it from Paul Wolfowitz or Ron Paul. Then the answer states “Decisions we made” opening up another can of worms I’ll address in a bit.
After posting on social media, Kara Sands took her shock and outrage to Fox News Channel as a guest on America Live with Megyn Kelly. Woe is them! Sands got things started saying that the school’s inculcation of her son was all well and good when it came to pledging allegiance to the flag and singing God Bless America but then she says their propaganda runs afoot!
“They blame the US for the [9/11] attacks [by saying] we misuse our power? Well, no!” frets Sands. Megyn Kelly attempts to top that with “Is this what we have to deal with now? We, we America, are to blame for the bad things that happen to us?”
This incessant “we”, “us”, and “our” stuff is fallacious and revealing. Their moral outrage was about the treatment of the United States, then by extension the boy student. Which does Sands value more? Is her son there to worship the state? Is the state there to serve her child? Is she so desperate to prove her loyalty to the state that she would capitalize on her son’s situation?
At one point, Kelly asked Sands if she “pay[s] attention more than most [parents]?” to which Sands replied, “I don’t know. Maybe I just speak out more.”
That is the average Fox News viewer summed up, isn’t it? Sands describes herself on Twitter as “Christian. Mom. Texan. Reagan Republican/Buckley Conservative. Political Junkie, Consultant & GOP Fundraiser.” The words “and Fox News contributor” have not been added yet.
Nobody disputes President Bill Clinton’s sanctions (not to mention bombings) on Iraq killed 500,000 children. Since 2004, 175 children have died from US drone strikes in Pakistan alone. But those parents’ shock and outrage isn’t as good on TV, so maybe that’s why Kara Sands reviles at her son’s quiz question. In addition to the outrage at the notion of blowback, Sands rightfully condemns the Bill of Rights part of the curriculum that claims “food and medicine” are civil rights. Responsibility is for personal actions, not state actions or so she would like to have her son taught.

The Antiwar Comic: Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste
Hey, sorry for the late post.  Had some technical issues on the site the other day.  This strip (and I loathe to use the word “inspired”) but it was thought up after I heard that famous Rahm Emanuel phrase.  If you’ve been listening to Scott’s program for a while, none of this will come as a shock to you.

Obama’s Persecution of Bradley Manning By Anthony Gregory
Thanks to Bradley Manning, the world learned important information about the U.S. government’s misconduct abroad. He pled guilty February 28 to leaking 700,000 documents to WikiLeaks, the international source that has exposed the malfeasance of institutions the world over. He leaked these documents to reveal the government’s obsession “with killing and capturing people” and “to make the world a better place.” The documents shined light on mistreated detainees at Guantánamo and such atrocities as the now notorious 2007 civilian killings in Iraq that were publicized in the “​Collateral Murder” video three years ago. Some have argued that some of the tens of thousands of diplomatic cables helped incite the Arab Spring.
Manning is expected to serve up to 20 years in prison. This, after he already languished for over a thousand days in detention. The Obama administration held him in a particularly sadistic form of solitary confinement for nine months, which over 250 lawyers protested in an open letter to the government.
Such solitary confinement was, of course, a form of torture, as most of the civilized world recognizes, despite Obama’s campaign promises to abolish the gruesome practice. Manning’s treatment also calls into question another one of Obama’s political vows: He had pledged in 2008 to rigorously protect whistle-blowers, whose “acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled.”
Instead, Obama has undertaken a war on whistle-blowers that makes George W. Bush look like a civil libertarian. The politician who promised and continues to boast unprecedented transparency arguably presides over its least transparent administration in history, which classified 92 million documents in 2011, and which, according to the Bloomberg News, has “prosecuted more government officials for alleged leaks under the World War I-era Espionage Act than all [of Obama’s] predecessors combined, including law-and-order Republicans John Mitchell, Edwin Meese and John Ashcroft.” Manning is among those so far targeted by this draconian legislation. This crackdown on whistle-blowers almost surely has a profound chill effect, discouraging people from coming forward with information about government wrongdoing.
The legal process Manning has faced has been even more a sham than usual.  …

Update: Would you read the comments under the Huffington Post version? Liberals. My God, they’re conservative.

Wow. That’s Awesome.

The Antiwar Comic: Just Keep Shooting and Shut Up
Isn’t it amazing that in this day and age, we’re still imprisoning the guys that expose war crimes while seemingly giving a pass to those that commit them?  This is what war does to a country, I guess.

I Still Don’t Like Rand Paul
Yesterday Senator Rand Paul filibustered the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA over the Obama administration’s refusal to renounce their self-appointed authority to murder American citizens on American soil.
It was pretty great for bringing attention to the issue, but really, so what if he had one good day?
Rand still stabbed his dad, and the rest of us, in the back by endorsing Mitt Romney. He’s horrible on Guantanamo and on accountability for torturers. He’s also bad on Iran sanctions; on the Israeli occupation of Gaza; the West Bank and East Jerusalem; and foreign aid — especially to Israel which he’s already granted a unilateral war guarantee. His NDAA amendment only covered US citizens, not all US persons, and though some swear it, I didn’t hear a thing yesterday about non-citizen US persons’ rights to also not be droned (or shot, etc). And some parts were horrible:
“We’re not talking about the guy coming out of the liquor store with a weapon. Even a drone could kill him if the FBI had drones. So my objection to drones isn’t so much the technology. There may be a use in law – for law enforcement here.”
Just to make sure we’ve got that straight.
Rand pals around with Bill Kristol and other horrible neoconservatives, even receiving “briefings” from Dan Senor who may as well have written the Heritage speech demagogueing about the long war against “Radical Islam.”
Two years into his senate term he should’ve/could’ve filibustered 100 things by now, but hasn’t. Yesterday was fine for what it was, but it still only makes him about a tenth of the man/congressman his father is/was.
I suppose it’s possible this is the beginning of some sort of transformation for the better. It could be, but I doubt it. He’s already shown such a willingness to “split the difference” on so many important things, it’s amazing to see how many people are willing to act like nothing he ever did or said before happened or mattered.
Some people love him because of his last name, but that’s faith, not reason, and therefore really no different than kooks loving Barack Obama for sometimes saying pretty things about the constitution and Bill of Rights too.
I didn’t always agree with his father’s votes or positions, but his “right on” to “fail” ratio was a thousand to one. Rand is going to have to start being right a hell of a lot more often to come anywhere near comparable to his father.
Ron was quoted in Time the other day, saying “Well, he’s the best Senator there is!” That may well be true, but as the scene on C-SPAN showed as this played out yesterday — with a handful of liberty-hating Republicans pretending to care for a day and the Dem’s silence only broken by Dick Durban’s cry “But, Nine-​Eleven​!” — that isn’t saying very much.
Update: The president has backed down, so I give Rand credit (though I still see no mention of non-citizen US persons). Let’s see if he can do two things right in a row.
Update 2: Uh, oh, yeah, uh, not so much really.

The Antiwar Comic: The Whores of Terror
Through Scott’s radio show and Antiwar.com, I’ve really learned a lot.  Learning about the history of the MEK and who supported it really shocked me.  I had always thought Ed Rendell was a good mayor and a good guy until I read about his support.  What was he thinking?
