Even after he escaped Impeachment, President Clinton found
everywhere he went, including outside the White House. "Resign Rapist!"
was the message he kept hearing. Not to mention, "Treason is the
Reason" from Republicans who would like to try him for Treason for
selling US nuclear secrets to the Chinese. Perhaps Clinton
he'd rather go down in history as a war criminal than as a treasonous
so the bombing began...
Protesters were at the White House the first day of the bombings.
And protesters were not going to let Clinton forget impeachment
or the rape allegations.

One man shares his strategy for peace...
THE PROBLEM is people's acceptance of state violence as a legitimate way of organizing society, and the fact that unscrupulous individuals always will take advantage of such power.
THE SOLUTION is organizing society along principles of nonviolence and voluntarism, which would mean the end of militaries and large nation states.
For Carol Moore's article Non-Violence and Decentralization, click here. Argues that a society organized by principles of non-violence would result in the dissolution of large, militarized nation states and freedom for individuals and communities. Also see Secession.Net.
For Carol Moore's article Non-Violent Secessionist Strategies
describes non-violent secessionist
strategies for achieving a world of free, self-governing communities and city states, click here.
