"U.S. Waters Down Iraqi Peace plan" by Medea Benjamin and Raed Jarrar from Alternet
"The Iraqi reconciliation plan unveiled by Prime
Minister Al-Maliki on Sunday had the potential to mark a turning point
in the war. But thanks to U.S. interference, instead of a road map for

path to continued violence and suffering."

"The Chinese, who use an eighth
as much energy per capita, are only beginning to burn fossil fuel in
large quantities, and they're using it to pull people out of poverty,
not indulge their taste for Lincoln Navigators. And it's politically
hopeless: The Chinese, and the rest of the world, simply will not
accept the idea that the atmosphere belonged to us, we filled it with
carbon, and now they need to find a new strategy for development."
