Why protest the Chicago Air and Water Show? We can think of many reasons! First, right now the U.S. is financially backing and providing the weapons Saudi Arabia is using against the people of Yemen. Thousands of civilians have died as either a direct result of the bombings or of starvation due to the destruction of their country.


Prepping for a Massacre in Ukraine? And Who are the Terrorists?

Speaking on Democracy Now! last week, professor Stephen Cohen of NYU & Princeton said, "we are not beginning a new Cold War. We are well Into it." The tremendous military resources of the U.S. and Europe are lining up in preparation for a showdown — which as Cohen said, could lead to a shooting war — aimed at backing Russia out of Ukraine.


A Look Under the Hood of the Obama Administration

By Joshua Frank


Tuesday's celebration hangovers have finally started to wear off, and the pieces are beginning to fall into place. Change will be coming to Washington in January, but it is difficult to decipher what form it will take. Early clues, however, suggest that Barack Obama's administration will prove unlikely to alter the fundamental political machinery that has led us into war and economic turmoil. Below is a brief summary of Obama's potential choices for a few key roles in his administration.


Oppose Barack Obama? How Dare Thee!!

by Joshua Frank

Increasingly, antiwar voters I talk with admit they are starting to get a little disgusted with the antics of Barack Obama, that great agent of change. It wasn't too long ago that these same folks were overly optimistic Obama would deliver on his varied promises, beckoning a new era of Washington politics, an end to the war in Iraq, and a new, peace driven foreign policy. Nonetheless, they all plan on voting for the Democrat regardless of how dismayed they have become with him and his campaign.

Of course, this isn't the lofty hope their candidate has been talking about. After eight long years of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, it's been a logical reaction, one that the Obama camp has done its best to exploit. But as Obama shows his constituents that he is far from an antiwar candidate, the less likely he is to walk away with an electoral victory come November, and the more doubtful it is that he will make any real progress in the Middle East if elected.



World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
