   The war on Islam Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990 couldn't have come at a better time for the U.S. military-industrial complex.
 With the end of the Cold War in 1989-with the American people anticipating a peace dividend-the U.S. military-industrial complex found itself without major "enemies" to justify U.S. defense spending, but also to seize control of the Middle East oil.
This was just the beginning of a new wave of U.S. imperial expansion.
   The U.S. imperial expansion follows the familiar British pattern of divide and rule. And, like the European conquests beginning in 1492, recent U.S. bombing of distant lands, and U.S.-led wars, have more to do with insatiable greed rather than legitimate concerns about U.S. security.
   Under the guise of saving humanity, and preserve civil society, U.S.-led NATO is assaulting the world-causing death, destruction and misery. Little has changed since 1492, except the technology for fighting wars, and for demonizing the "enemy."
   The War on Islam serves as an antidote to less-than-balanced U.S. media coverage of events affecting the Muslim world-from the Gulf War of 1991 to the year 2000. It exposes the hype about "rogue states," "Islamic terrorism," and "human rights" used to justify the war on Islam.

Deadly Monopoly by Ali Vazirabadi

Current Affairs/Health
Minorities have been discriminated against in the federally funded, nonprofit National Marrow Donor program. The NMDP, with government support, controls disbursement of funding to affiliated blood and donor centers, and maintains the largest national bone marrow registry database. With the lives of minorities in the balance, NMDP appears to have become a deadly monopoly.
A courageous whistle-blower, who had been in charge of recruiting minority donors for the NMDP, wrote a detailed letter to the president, Congress and government agencies. The FBI felt there was enough evidence to warrant an investigation of her allegations of misuse of the funding, and discrimination against minorities. The FBI recommended that the United States Attorney get involved immediately. But then, seemingly without explanation, the FBI was called off the case, and the NMDP continued to do business as usual.
Deadly Monopoly*s analysis of documents raises questions, among them:
*Do NMDP board members have a conflict of interest?
*Why was the FBI investigation halted, when the FBI was certain further investigation would be needed?
*After a decade of low minority representation in the registry, what does the future hold for minorities?
*Is the testing of minorities for the national registry accurate?
*After a decade of government funding, why are the registry's numbers so low for African American, Hispanics, American Indians and other ethnic groups?
Author Ali Vazirabadi became galvanized into action when he responded to a community appeal to help a dying 16-year-old Persian cancer victim, Pouya Mofrad. Pouya's family could not raise the thousands of dollars they were told they needed to begin the search for a suitable bone marrow donor. Vazirabadi began his investigation and what he discovered from government records, released under the Freedom of Information Act will shock you! Deadly Monopoly is a call to action.
