Will Harper And Ignatieff Fianlly Abandon George Bush's Philosophy,...

The election was more than a referendum on a president operating above the law and presiding over financial and moral corruption, cronyism and excessive political partisanship at the expense of the common good. It was more than a referendum on Iraq, where the U.S. much like the military junta in Algeria in the 1990s is a party to or an accomplice in anarchy and mass killings. The entire gamut of Bush's policies stand repudiated: The war on terror, which has increased terrorism and diluted the most fundamental principles of American democracy, with warrant-less wiretaps on residents, secret CIA prisons, detention of hundreds without charge, and the use of torture. The war in Afghanistan, which is going nowhere. The blind support of Israel's own "war on terror," which is making Israelis less safe, while starving and punishing all Palestinians and killing and injuring too many. The botched handling of North Korea and Iran, which has led to one nation already acquiring a nuclear bomb and the other increasingly slipping out from under international inspections. http://tinyurl.com/yjq76l [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on November 9, 2006]
