Mad-ministration scared now…

Tunisia, Lebanon, now Cairo. They're said to be the lynchpins in "Middle East Peace" meaning Pox Americana. Somehow ONLY the U.S. is capable of determning peace terms WTF? Maybe there IS a huge disconnect in perception here in America. (Ok, "maybe" is just being polite) but going around conquering nations isn't exactly a stabilizing mechanism. Setting up puppet dictators in those conquered nations, conquered either through overt war like in Iraq and Afghanistan and Greece and South Korea, or through Diplomacy coupled with assassinations. That won't lead to peace either. There was a saying in the Military "Peace, through superior firepower" well, that's not peace, that's conquest. You can only force people to do your will for a limited time. Sooner or later, usually sooner, it comes roaring back and bites you square on your arse. Now Obama and Mrs Clinton are treading a fine line, do we overtly back the demonstrators, in the hopes that they'll be nice to our Slaverymongers Ambassadors of goodwill and freedom, or back Mubarak in the off chance that he'll be able to suppress this rebellion (doing it on behalf of his Washington UberMeisters) and "We" would have to make nice to him.

Well, now we know… Shades of the Kurdish Shepherd

The speculation about why we weren't getting an Hourly Victory Report Update from the Helmand Province Massacre had a large spectre nobody was willing to say... that they were massacring civilians. Billy McMethamphetamine, Commander on the ground there, acknowledged 12 civilians killed by the "smart bombs" fired against the "insurgents". Since the "insurgents" are people who actually LIVE there, wouldn't that make the Imperial Storm Trooper Invaders the REAL "insurgents"? They even use the base word of Insurgent, "surge" as part of the title they give their strategy.

Obama sucker punches Muhammad Ali

Apparently our double agent of change President Obama, invoked Muhammad Ali as a model of courage for staying the course just days before declaring a redoubled Pox Americana on the peoples of Afghanistan and Pakistan. I'm glad sports historian Dave Zirin has spoken swiftly to forbid Obama's defiling of the most famous draft resister in US history. Parkinson's prevents Ali from defending his title, just as MLK's memorializers airbrush King's antiwar vehemence. 12387
