The Well-Read Red.

Mainstream news from Afghanistan tells of US Military plans and hopes for stabilizing the shattered nation, and rarely covers the enormous obstacles in their way.  In an article "Getting Out of Afghanistan" published last October in Dissent Magazine, Todd Gitlin shows what's wrong with all the reasons given for the US-NATO occupation.    Clayton Morgareidge  reads an edited version of the piece.

Counting Heads: What's right and what's wrong with the 2010 census

Its been happening every decade since 1790. As mandated by the constitution, the U.S. Census Bureau determines the population of the nation, the results used to allocate congressional seats, electoral votes and government program funding. As census questionnaires start arriving in mailboxes this month, criticism of the census is heating up from all quarters. Right wing pundits characterize the census as part of the Obama administration's efforts to control citizens' lives. Republicans accuse organization like ACORN of distorting the results for political gain. Communities of color and other underrepresented populations worry that historic undercounting of their numbers will once again leave them without real political representation.

For starters, here's an article Wayne Madsen found that relates to Iran war preparations.  Estimate time for unpacking, deployment/arming, check for good weather,  look for an associated vilification or provocation (say a detonated building?) in the corporate-owned media, and you can get a good idea of when the blood is supposed to flow:
