War Crimes: (Who's)

Who We Are:

A Conservative Libertarian Coalition opposed to those in America who want world empire and benefit from (small) wars.  Particularly we argue that it is Washington which has now launched 2 major  unprovoked wars, many bombing attacks, and generated world wide opposition (even hatred in whole the Moslem world) against America, during the last 12 years.  We note that it is generally the "Washington Establishment" of both Parties which supports wars.  Wars are most opposed by Freshman and Sophomore   Congressman, Buchananites,  traditional Constitutional Conservatives, old time liberals, minorities and multi-national businesses which do not manufacture weapons.

   This site was started at the time of the Kosovo War, but the arguments (and evidence) about the War Party apply to both Democrats and Republicans.  Many  Americans benefit from (small) wars or think that they will. Others promote intellectuals' fantasies.  Neoconservative founder Irving Kristol said in 8/2/96 "what we really need is...a threatening enemy, one worthy of our mettle."  Russia is now losing much of its democracy and returning to a confrontational policy, in part because of U.S. policies undermined pro-Western forces.  It was our War Party which pushed NATO to its borders, put F-16 fighter-bombers flying minutes from St. Petersburg, calls to bring Ukraine into NATO and attacked Serbia, Russia's historic ally.  (and now, 7/08, put a thousand marines to train with Georgian troops on Russia's doorstep). China only started increasing its nuclear missiles after the U.S. attacked Iraq in 1990, and more so since our second attack on Iraq.  Now we have made nearly a quarter of the world, Muslims, into our enemies and the War Party still calls for threatening confrontations with China. 
       Arnaud de Borchgrave has written of 15,000 earmarks in the defense budget, a whole new way of funding and building constituencies for more wars.  And Private contractors are now another whole new lobby for unending wars.

Alternative to Unending Wars   The War Party's fondest dreams come true, endless war, vast budgets, enemies everywhere, a war footing for America for years to come.  Their support for settlements on the West Bank and the misery blockade of civilian reconstruction in Iraq helped bring about the attack on the World Trade Center, and now the American response.tthttp/against

In 1919, Joseph Schumpteter described ancient Rom

"There was no corner of the known world where some interest was not alleged to be in danger or under actual attack. If the interests were not Roman, they were those of Rome's allies; and if Rome had no allies, the allies would be invented. When it was utterly impossible to contrive such an interest -- why, then it was the national honor that had been insulted. The fight was always invested with an aura of legality. Rome was always being attacked by evil-minded neighbors.  The whole world was pervaded by a host of enemies, it was manifestly Rome's duty to guard against their indubitably aggressive designs"  by Joseph Shumpeteter, 1919
