Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Film-maker Michael Moore recently wrote a letter to President George W Bush about his first year as President. Theletter is called “Hail George, Conqueror of Evildoers.” It begins:

“Dear George:

Hats off to you, sir, for a job well done! The Soviets tried for ten years to do what it took you only two months toaccomplish in Afghanistan. How did you do that? It’s funny how a couple months ago there were all these Taliban, andnow — there aren’t any! You must be some kind of super magician — almost as good at disappearing acts as ol’ Osama(or, as they say on the Fox Nuisance Channel, “Usama” — I like their spelling better, like “We put the 'USA' inUSAma!”).”
