David May looks at the latest in a long string of corporate scandals. The ties
between big business and the government are closer than ever - and this is not
an aberration of capitalism - but its heart and soul!
The myth of an American military mission to build a democracy and liberate an
oppressed people has been shattered to pieces. The photographs from Abu Ghraib
depict scenes of physical brutality, sadist sexual abuse, and monstrous acts by
American soldiers. The Bush administration and the military command in Iraq
continue to deny knowledge and involvement, even while a flood of information
from eyewitnesses provides proof to the contrary. However, the calls demanding
justice from a domestic or international court are misleading; history shows us
that only the working-class can end the war and bring the guilty to justice.
