First we note for our foreign readers, please remember that this site is directed at Americans; although we are very critical of the U.S. government, our rights (and continued survival) to publish are a basos of the freedom we have and cherish in this great nation. Liberty, freedom of speech, and free elections allow us the possibility of changing the rulers that we have. Note also from our reports that there was tremendous resistance in America against the War Party. (Update 11/08 –Obama’s win was a repudiation of Bush, the neoconservatives and the War Party!!). By 2010 we see how Obama himself has pretty much capitulated to Washington’s War Party, which shows how powerful it is. However, the surprising and majority opposition to bombing Syria shows how most Americans do no support the War Party which dominates Washington.

We are primarily a research site. We started in 1999 and post information from that time. We recommend your inscribing with the Washington Post and New York Times, which will then allow easy access to their articles which are our most frequently used sources during the last years.
FOR NEW READERS –We suggest a general look over from the top down or, for particular interests, clicking on one of the headings at the top of the main page.
FOR RETURNING READERS — Some 75% of our readers are returning for research. UPDATES & NEW LINKS are posted at the top of the web pages or at the top of the different section subject matters. The most frequently updated sites are News of the Empire (& Iraq) Israel Issues. Other most commonly read topics in the past were former President Carter 1999 article , The War Party.com, Torture News, Varieties of American Bombs, Iraq Civilian Deaths after 1990 plus many other topics for research on war, empire, and (lost) constitutional freedoms.
Subjects with a red cross + are among the most read articles and which are still relevant to current foreign policy.
This site started up oriented towards free market conservatives (called liberals in Europe) for whom “anti-war” news was very suppressed in “their” media, e.g. WALL STREET JOURNAL OP-ED, NATIONAL REVIEW, FOX NEWS, WEEKLY STANDARD, RUSH LIMBAUGH, GORDON LIDDY, etc.
Today, however, the news is “out” for most Americans, but much unpopular news is still rarely reported. The old divisions of Right and Left are no longer applicable. The split today is between those who want freedom, limited government and economic prosperity against those promoting aggressive wars, empire, glory and ruling the world. They come from both Right and Left. Others are confused or intimidated by the War Party’s great power in Washington, the media, and especially in Congress (through earmarks). If our articles don’t answer your research or curiosity, their titles and subject matter can still lead you to relevant search goals on the internet.
