The Bush administration is using the election as a cover, as it increases threats against Iran. It has quietly assembled the largest naval armada in one place since World War II - in the , with guns aimed at Iran.
They have now deployed 18 NATO ships to the Black Sea and raised threats against Russia, while opening a new front of bombing attacks. Meanwhile, no troops have been withdrawn from the disastrous wars in Iraq & Afghanistan.
There are always billions of dollars for war and billions more to bail out the big banks and mortgage companies, but no assistance for the 600,000 working people laid off this year, or the 2 million small homeowners being foreclosed in record numbers, or the more the 50 million people without health care.
We need money for jobs and housing - not for another war!
While the situation is growing dire for many, Washington's cutbacks in domestic programs continue. The fiscal year beginning on October 1 will bring drastic cuts. A new U.S. war will bring only more suffering here as well as massive destruction abroad.
The recent Hurricane Gustav highlighted the failure of Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Three years after the disaster, thousands of people are still homeless, as the money that could have been spent on meeting human needs has gone to fund the and the agenda of .

Who Pays? Who Profits?
- Almost 4,200 U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq, and nearly 900 in Afghanistan. No one on the Board of Directors of Exxon or Morgan Stanley has lost a daughter or son in these wars, because the troops are drawn from working class families and disproportionately from communities of color. The Pentagon takes advantage of the lack of educational and employment opportunities to target these communities with false promises of college money and job training.,
- Many vets returning from Iraq & Afghanistan are suffering from physical and psychological injuries, only to find that veterans' hospitals are being shut down, programs are being cut, and facilities are filthy, under-equipped and understaffed.
- According to CostofWar.com, the has cost more than $550 billion. This money has been stolen robbed from working people. We need this money for schools, job training, health care, repairing our crumbling infrastructure, rebuilding the Gulf Coast, and much more.
- While oil companies are making record profits, the price of gas, heating oil, groceries, and other necessities is skyrocketing.
- Meanwhile, the foreclosures and evictions crisis is growing. Washington is spending billions on war and on bailing out banks, while working people are being thrown out of their homes.
- Especially during difficult economic times, Wall Street and the corporate media work overtime to divide us. They want us to blame the people of Iraq or Iran or immigrant workers for the crisis, instead of uniting against the corporations who profit while working people bleed. Now, more than ever, we need to stand in solidarity against racism, sexism, anti-LGBT bigotry, and anything else they use to attempt to divide us.
