Nader = Clinton on foreign policy
From the Marxist Workers' Group, www.marxistworker.org

Nader refuses to take any position on critical issues of foreign
policy. Why? Because he is indistinguishable from Buchanan, Bush, Gore
or Clinton. He has not denounced the bloody genocidal wars the US has
instigated. He has not offered any kind of alternative to the 'new'
brand of imperialism that is propelling the US to war in endless points
on the globe.
But it isn't so surprising both Nader and the Greens aren't big on
pushing themselves as an alternative to Clinton's foreign policy.
Because there is no difference. The Greens in the US use the first
Green Party in Germany as its model. The German Green Party runs the
imperialist war machine there. It is in a governing alliance with
Clinton's twin in Germany, Gerhardt Schroeder.
Taking its cues from its German mentor, the US Green Party calls
for "international Multilateral Peacekeeping to Stop Aggression and
Genocide." But this humanistic-sounding slogan is just so many words to
say: U.S. and German militarism should be the enforcers keepers of a
murderous, criminal and genocidal warsówars that that imperialism
fostered and nurtured.
