Thurs, 12/9, Public Forum, ''WikiLeaks and the ugly truth about U.S. imperialism'' 7pm, Haymarket People's Fund, 42 Seaverns Ave, JP (map)

 latest release of thousands of classified US diplomatic messages by 
WikiLeaks has once again exposed the ugly truth of US imperialism.  The 
documents that were most recently made public show that the US has been 
actively discussing an invasion of Iran with its allies, preparing to 
replace existing governments with more US-friendly regimes, and 
constantly calculating which world governments are "reliable" allies in 
the US' "what we say goes" game of world domination.  The cables have 
also revealed that governments like those of Yemen and Pakistan have 
been willing partners in the US' illegal air wars in those countries, 
though they have denied it.

In many ways, WikiLeaks have confirmed with damning evidence what many 
people around the world already knew: that the US is the biggest bully 
in the world and uses all kinds of violence and power to remain the 
world's only superpower. While the Obama Administration and other 
governments of the world claim that WikiLeaks is criminal for 
"endangering lives of Americans" and "undermining democracy and 
diplomacy," it is the US' actions that are outrageous—not the efforts of
 brave whistle-blowers to expose them.

Join us this Thursday, December 9th, for a discussion on WikiLeaks and 
their significance for those of us who oppose and work to stop the US' 
wars of terror. To read more about the leak's impact and aftermath,
