the bush regime never fails to provide us with fresh surprises. after much ballyhoo concerning largely american mercenaries, bush and co. are looking to create foreign legions of darkies to do their dirty work for them. those bush advisors were evidently deadly serious about the benefits of outsourcing after all. perhaps after consultation with sharon last week, bush has decided that the only army in the world - IDF apart - worth having would be rwandan.
addictive and dangerous. as long as the whiskey bar stays open, free speech still exists and there is hope for a better world.
today is the first chance i have to clean up comments. advocate of free speech, i don't want to censor comments. but there isn't any choice, with a crowd like the LGFers. it's as if you had a party and one of the guests started to throw liquor on the other guests or scream uncontrollably. or wildly start groping somebody else's girlfriend.
those who don't want to vote or campaign for kerry should remember: it can't get any worse. the reigning nepotism and loss of influence taking place is as bad as it gets. the current administration is setting historical precedents.
a bereaved iraqi mother is no more consolable than the bereaved american mother of a deceased soldier. bombs are real. they kill and maim.
I have a feeling that the article sharon's eastern front | next exile of the jews | Q & A will have me tarred as an antisemite. This is not a fair charge. I have many Jewish friends and colleagues. I both have employed Jews and have been employed by Jews. Frankly, until today I was somewhat concerned with expressing my concerns as I had seen how lightly the ADL or the Canadian Jewish Congress bandy the label of anti-Semite. At this point those bastards can call me whatever they want, I will not stand by and applaud the persecution and gradual genocide and Palestinians and other Middle Eastern peoples, anymore than I would have stood by to applaud the genocidal persecution of the Third Reich against the Jewish, Slavic and Romany peoples during the Second Great War of this century.
But still why get official endorsement from the United States now? Sharon wants his deal while Bush is in the White House. The Israelis are justifiably worried that they may not see their backer re-elected in six months. While John Kerry faces the same menaces at home from the Jewish political interest groups as any other American politician, never has Israel had such a pliant President in the White House so surrounded by Likud hawks from the Project for a New American Century (link to PNAC Watch - don't neglect to visit the original for to observe such peace inspirational tracts first hand. With Kerry, Israel - as yet - has not guarantees. Why does Sharon think he can get away with it? With the British, the Americans have already perpetrated the greatest genocides in history last century. The elimination of the American Indians as a significant social group is not in sheer number of individuals killed the greatest genocide ever, but in terms of duration, severity and numbers of individual nations eliminated it is by far the greatest. There were over 1,470 official incidents of US Army action against American Indians between 1776 and 1907. The population of indigenous peoples in North America in 1492 is estimated at 5 million or more. By 1800 there were only 600,00 and by 1900 less than 250,000 living. This is a liquidation of 95% of the population. To be able to legitimise the shame of Israeli democracy - Palestinians are not allowed to vote within their own state - and to take the remaining Palestinian territory, this is the kind of decimation that Sharon must aspire to.
Quotations from famous Americans about North American Indian peoples during the 19th century remind me of Sharon's own rhetoric concerning Palestinians.
