Twenty years since the US bombing of Yugoslavia
March 24 marks 20 years since the US and NATO launched a one-sided war against Yugoslavia, bombing Serbia and its capital Belgrade for 78 straight days. Factories, schools and hospitals were destroyed, along with bridges, roads and the electrical grid in a bid to bomb the Serbian population into submission to US and Western European imperialism’s domination of the Balkans.The airstrikes killed around 2,500 people and wounded another 12,500 according to Serbian estimates.One of the US-NATO airstrikes used laser-guided bombs to take out a railway bridge in southern Serbia, killing at least 10 people on a passenger train. Another slaughtered 21 people in a nursing home. And a deliberate strike on the TV broadcaster RTS in Belgrade took the lives of 16 civilian workers.In one of the most provocative acts of the war, the US carried out a strike on the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, killing three people. Washington claimed that the bombing was an “accident,” but Beijing and the Chinese population rightly saw it as an act of aggression that foreshadowed an escalating US military buildup against China.

Canada in the Age of Working-Class Power
Both at home and abroad, Pierre Elliott Trudeau has often been seen as a figure of the left. Thanks to his early engagements with Marxist thinkers like Harold Laski, immersion in the progressive milieu of postwar Quebec, and proximity to figures in the labor and socialist movements before entering electoral politics, the former Canadian prime minister retains for some an at least partially radical reputation.A new book by historian Christo Aivalis, however, makes a convincing case for Trudeau’s consistent adherence, in both thought and action, to the liberal tradition. But, as its title suggests, The Constant Liberal: Pierre Trudeau, Organized Labour and the Canadian Social Democratic Left is also concerned with the Left as both a political and intellectual force during the critical decades of Trudeau’s life and career. This makes it doubly useful as a clarifying account of one of Canada’s most influential politicians and a chronicle of a particularly vibrant period for its since-tamed labor and left movements.

House Dems ignore base, battle Trump for Israel’s approval with anti-boycott law as AIPAC looms
House Democrats have introduced a resolution condemning boycotts of Israel, competing with President Donald Trump to see who can pander the loudest to the Israeli lobby, ahead of the AIPAC conference – never mind their base.House Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler (D-New York) and Brad Schneider (D-Illinois) are shouting their support for Israel at the top of their lungs as the AIPAC conference comes to Washington this weekend, introducing a resolution to condemn boycotts of Israel as “incompatible” with a two-state solution. Schneider, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, is actually speaking at the conference, which is surely just a coincidence.With the influential lobby in town, Democratic Party members are no doubt eager to convince their wealthy pro-Israel donors that rumors of anti-Semitism within the party are greatly exaggerated, and that Ilhan Omar’s blasphemy regarding "the Benjamins" that it may –or may not– be “all about” is not shared by all who call themselves Democrats.

Leftists realise they need to reject liberalism and social democracy due to their failure to resolve and isolated focus on the superstructure. Due to increased interactions with liberals and social democrats (or more likely that liberalism and social democracy are part of ideology manifested in the spectacle) the frustration from this realisation tends to simmer and with this comes a reduction in nuance. Anonymous conversations allow individuals to speak their mind without fear of repercussion so the lack of nuance is reflected in the posts where they might not be in the flesh. I'm often guilty of this myself, but it can be overcome.


This is why no one likes you — you want to import muh “brown workers” just like ☘️capitalists☘️ want you to and act confused when actual white workers protest against rape gangs and islamization

Brown workers are workers.

This outrage needs to keep momentum long enough to still be there next election. Reminder OWS in the USA was broken up just fast enough that it was basically nonexistent by the time the 2012 elections rolled around.
Bleh, hoping this sort of thing would tail off under the AMLO administration
Any chance some sort of parliamentary motion related to this could be used to call for early elections?
Manning & Snowden both deserve medals
Oooh boy, time to pull out my thunderbolts vs. car crashes death stats again.
There was another party causing far more destruction, the genocidal government of Yugoslavia itself. International intervention certainly should've been done better, but things were already well past the point of no return.

More spectacle, more security theater, less mental health services.

Just like cops, bankers, debt collectors, management, and other class traitors.

Very cute picture

OWS basically won Obama the 2012 election with its 99% rhetoric.
The object level problem was that there was only Obama to elect. The meta level problem is aiming at elections instead of organizing. (Organizing was something OWS was particularly awful at.)

Not really a problem for France.

Regarding OWS, if it had actually kept growing, it could've created its own candidate. Given a surprising amount of popular appeal already evident to the earlier Tea Party crowd, possibly one not only left of Obama, but also less divisive in partisan terms.
True, though nobody is really "good at organizing" in modern burgerstan, given the overall pathetic state of our unions.
