The world is looking with interest and anticipation at the political drama played out every four years in the United States. After one of the most contentious primary seasons, the two parties selected their presidential candidates for the November 4 elections. Now, in an atmosphere of irrational enthusiasm, special interest and ethnic groups clamor for attention and pursue meaningless pre-electoral declarations from the two candidates to advance their causes. It is the season for transparent illusions and, as usual, inevitable disappointments. As history shows, pre-electoral promises, particularly in foreign policy issues, are rarely translated into post-electoral policies. But every new beginning raises expectations for a better future. This time the hopes are high that matters will not ultimately follow Giuseppe Mazzini's dictum of "things changing in order to remain the same."

Just What We Need: New Reasons to Go to War
By Sheldon Richman
"Does anyone wonder where the government obtains the authority to promise to go to war over Croatia and Albania? It is simply taken for granted that the government may do this. That’s what governments do. In the United States, it’s what presidents do. Especially this president, who has asserted extraordinary autocratic powers in the last seven years".
A few days before Gen. David Petraeus confirmed for Congress how overworked the military is in Iraq, President Bush was in Croatia talking about the significance of inviting that country and Albania to join NATO.
“Henceforth, should any danger threaten your people, America and the NATO alliance will stand with you, and no one will be able to take your freedom away,” he said.
Any danger. Under the supposed obligations of NATO, the American people will be committed to go to war if necessary to protect Croatia and Albania from ... anyone. Macedonia could be next, if Greece can be bribed to go along.
