      Central America’s raging drug war is expected to escalate after the presidential election of Otto Perez-Molina, a right-wing general with past death-squad connections, who promises a “full-frontal assault” and is requesting direct US military assistance.

      By declaring that he will dispatch 2,500 Marines to Australia, President Obama has crossed a line, beginning a new Cold War with China, one based on military encirclement on sea and land, costing unknown trillions in defense dollars, and shoring up cheap labor markets in a free trade zone excluding China. An increased emphasis on China’s systemic human rights violations will provide a liberal rationale for the new global competition.

      Many are all aflutter about “Where to go from Zuccotti Park?” and “Jolted, Wall St. Protesters Face Challenge for Future." No one so far is asking the question, where does Wall Street reform stand after eight weeks of massive occupations and coverage? When will our politicians act?
