Five Kentucky-bred runners took on the Irish invader, Hegemony, in Sunday's $107,900 Inglewood Handicap at Hollywood Park.

Open markets and cheap labor have been the goals of American foreign policy for decades, and local cultures and economies have been thoroughly and repeatedly trampled by corporate invasions. American leadership has simply ignored human rights concerns until they coincided with the geopolitical aims of the Bush administration.

The Bush administration's recently enunciated National Security Strategy revolves around maintaining or augmenting America's overwhelming military, economic and political preponderance.

The nation is in a state of agony; we are being dragged into war in the name of upholding a principle. Our President argues that a sacrifice must be made now to prevent Iraqi hegemony. He may be right, but what bothers me is that no one seems to ask the question as to why the U.S. could not have nipped things in the bud. Invasions are planned weeks if not months ahead. Where were our intelligence services when the Iraqis were massing troops--30,000 of them--across the Kuwaiti border?
