The cowardly Democratic Party, one of the two major pro-imperialist parties in the US, collapsed in the face of executive opposition to its wimpy time-table-for-withdrawal. The Democrats woofed noisily about the responsibility of the so-called Iraqi government, insisting that it step up and play its puppet role more perfectly, and then settled back into their comfortable and customary scold-and-whine position. All the bluster might provide (they hope) a little needed cover for the betrayal.

I’m sure you heard about the passing of James Earl Chaney’s mother, Fannie Lee. She would be glad to know that there are people in the world actively fighting to make this world a peaceful place where all people are considered to be equal. You are definitely one of those people. Thanks for your service.
