We were all surprised by what what happened in New York on 9/11/2001
but not all of us were SHOCKED. Knowing the immense crimes of U.S. imperialism, the uncounted deaths it has heaped on the peoples of the Middle East and the rest of the world in the name of profit, what surprised me the most was that it took so long for someone to respond in kind.
"‘Disarmament?’ – But the entire question revolves around who will disarm whom. The only disarmament which can avert or end war is the disarmament of the bourgeoisie by the workers. But to disarm the bourgeoisie, the workers must arm themselves."

Kermit the Frog and Philippines President Aquino: What’s the difference?
One is a puppet from the U.S. - The other is a puppet of the U.S.
From Existence is Resistance:
In protest against Rockefeller Center putting up every flag at it’s center except the Palestinian flag, Existence is Resistance organized it’s 2nd annual Occupation on Ice.
The activist where split up with some skating on the ice and raising the Palestinian flag at a precise moment with those all around the center. Palestinian flags were in full display on the skating rink and all around Rockefeller Center. Many tourist cheered the action and were supportive.
The NYPD came and demanded that we put our flags down and leave, they said no flags were allowed but we said Rockefeller Center is filled with flags. We are simply asking them to include the Palestinian flag amongst the flags of the world. After some questioning and checking our id’s we were let go.
