Noxious number: Resounding success?

8,000 

The amount of U.S. troops that will remain in Iraq above the pre-surge level of 132,000. If the surge was successful, then why are more troops necessary afterward?

We will soon reach other noxious numbers: 4,000 American dead and the 5-year anniversary.

V.I. Lenin saw this stranglehold on power.

“The social-chauvinist scoundrels cover up the defence of the predatory interests of ‘their own’ bourgeoisie with phrases about the ‘defence of the fatherland’, ‘defence of the republic and the revolution’, etc!” 

Lenin’s words from 1917 have amazing relevance today. The U.S.’s military-industrial complex protects bourgeoisie profits when the young proletariat fight for American “freedom.”
