/ May 16, 2019 | As we go to press the U.S. war drums are beating louder and louder.

As part of a mounting series of U.S. provocations against Iran, the U.S. State Department has ordered all "non-critical government employees" to leave Iraq on the grounds that, "U.S. intelligence has learned that Iran is planning strikes on U.S. forces in Iraq." U.S. Central Command in the region reported in a statement on May 13 that, "U.S. troops are now at a high level of alert as we continue to monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to U.S. forces in Iraq."

These statements come shortly after the U.S. government deployed the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier-strike group, plus four B-52 bombers, to the Persian Gulf amid "indications that Iran was transporting short-range ballistic missiles to the region," according to a State Department official.

Socialist Organizer persistently advocates for a Labor Party based on the trade unions and rooted in struggles of the working class and all the oppressed sectors of society; a Labor Party that charts a clean and decisive break with the twin parties of the bosses, the Democrats and Republicans.

21 February 2019 | Travelling with Hugo Chavez, I soon understood the threat of Venezuela. At a farming co-operative in Lara state, people waited patiently and with good humour in the heat. Jugs of water and melon juice were passed around. A guitar was played; a woman, Katarina, stood and sang with a husky contralto.

"What did her words say?" I asked.

"That we are proud," was the reply.

A new quarterly report (pdf) from the U.N. Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) shows that "pro-government forces," including both Afghan and international troops, killed 305 civilians from January to the end of March.
