The next phase is force size, which could mean reductions in force, shifting more troops to the reserves or implementing a draft. [The next phase is Seize DC!.]

Taibbi closes in on Obama

Taibbi closes in on Obama By Ronald Bleier 15 Jul 2011 In a recent blog, Rolling Stone contributing editor, Matt Taibbi, comes very close in his last paragraph to supporting the headline to his article: "Obama Doesn't Want a Progressive Deficit Deal." Taibbi calls out the Democrats for a "transparent lie" when they claim to support a progressive solution to the current economic situation. I agree: Obama has been maneuvering much more openly, quite blatantly in fact, since at least December 2010, driving not merely a rightwing agenda, but an extremist right wing agenda, a Tea Party agenda.

United States recognizes Libya 'rebels' 15 Jul 2011 Rebel leaders won recognition as the legitimate government of Libya from the United States and other world powers on Friday in a major boost to the 'rebels' faltering campaign to oust Muammar Gaddafi.
