justified. Here are some offerings.
We can always hope for justice.
Bush Convicted In Absentia Of War Crimes
In what is the first ever conviction of its kind anywhere in the world, the former US President and seven key members of his administration were yesterday (Fri) found guilty of war crimes.
Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and their legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo were tried in absentia in Malaysia............
“The Tribunal recommends to the War Crimes Commission to give the widest international publicity to this conviction and grant of reparations, as these are universal crimes for which there is a responsibility upon nations to institute prosecutions if any of these Accused persons may enter their jurisdictions”.
A good result.
A Bush Dictionary Annotated
Most politicians can talk their native language. This requires a degree of intelligence. Bush fails.
Bush And 20 Forgotten Scandals
Actually not very forgotten. It is the same with Blair, the foul ups merge seamlessly into the corruption.
Bush And Abu Ghraib
Lest we forget. It happened on his watch. Clinton was dreadful. Bush was far worse.
Bush and Bush
The dirt is out there and someone is talking.
The Bush Family
Names some of the names. Further back it gets involved with Nazis and other nasties.
Bush And Mistress Condoleezza - broken link but the message is clear
Aaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww, gee, we never thunk it. "So close to the President, she can even finish his sentences for him." Guess Mistress Condoleezza won't be giving President Bushwa any advice he doesn't already know...
Condoleezza Rice. She was his, heart and soul. If he wanted it he got it:-
A man's gotta do what man's gotta do. Making her happy made him happy. Mrs. Bush was not amused.
Is she telling us what a big man George is?
Savage or sexy? Look for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself. Mrs. Bush already has.
Would you want her finger anywhere near the nuclear trigger?
Bush Is A Jew? Maybe
This is indicative, not definitive but worth a look. Bushes served in the Second World War. There is also a link to an on line copy of the Soncino edition of the Talmud which is at The Babylonian Talmud in English. It is what they say for internal consumption.
Bush the Fascist
The evidence for this is rock solid. Consistent, deliberate breaches of his oath to uphold the Constitution are just part of it.
George W Bush and Mass Murderer
The link to the original article is broken. Proof? Not really but suggestive.
Hook 'em Horns & Bush
Bush does this from time to time. The meaning is assumed to be sinister. The Wiki say it is innocuous, being the sign of Texas University.
Skull And Bones
How do you get to be the president? Joining Skull and Bones is a good start. It worked for Bush and almost for Kerry.
The War - Won but not Over
Until Saturday, I was willing to believe that such weapons would be “found” by the Americans. They had the means, motive and opportunity for planting them. But the surrender of Amir Hamudi Hasan al-Sadi has complicated any such plan. He was the chief weapons adviser to the Iraqi Government. Before the war, he had repeatedly denied that his country had any of the weapons it was alleged to have. He helped reveal the report on Iraqi weapons published by the British Government as a mass of lies—and often of plagiarized and obsolete lies. For his own safety, it was in his interest, once the war was over, to confess that he had been lying, and to validate all American claims. In fact, he called a news conference before surrendering and repeated his earlier denials: “I was knowledgeable about these programmes” he said. “I never told anything but the truth and time will bear me out”. Bearing in mind how little shame the present Government of America has about torturing prisoners of war, it will be interesting to see how long Mr. al-Sudi maintains this insistence. But no amount of retraction will now be believed. There were no “weapons of mass destruction”. There was no danger to this country. We were lied into this war.
We were lied into it by war criminals, Bush and Blair are the chief liars.
Bush and Bush
If the head man is open to blackmail it is easier to control him, if you know where the dirt is. Of course if he is important enough he might arrange a murder. This can spoil your day.
THE FAMILY: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty
New Book Further Confirms Our Independent Investigations!
Book review by Sherman H. Skolnick
CloakAndDagger.ca radio and Broadsides TV
Reposted (and part-censored) by RENSE.COM radio
September 7, 2004
Just published "THE FAMILY---The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty", by veteran highly controversial author, Kitty Kelley. According to book industry sources, the publisher intends to issue and market one million copies of this book that is the lowdown of the Bushies.
The book details a number of stories long-since posted and archived, and publicly discussed by us, including stories co-authored by Sherman H. Skolnick and Lenny Bloom, as Middle-Finger News. Also posted and archived at RENSE.COM
Also widely discussed on radio talk shows by Skolnick and also jointly with co-host Lenny Bloom on Cloak And Dagger internet radio worldwide as well as by Skolnick on numerous other radio talk shows U.S., Canada, Australia, nnd Europe, over the last five years and more.
Mentioned in Kitty Kelley's book following the already publicized independent investigations of Skolnick and his colleagues:
That George W. Bush cohabited at his Texas ranch and elsewhere with the Mayor of a major city in Tennessee, says Kitty Kelley.
Skolnick began the discussion several years ago as a story about "The Pedophile/Homosexual Underground" (skolnicksreport.com "Overthrow of the American Republic", Part 24). It relates to George W. Bush's homosexual relationship, since about puberty, with Victor Ashe, long-time Mayor of Knoxvillle. When some in Congress began inquiries in the fall of 2003, Ashe in December, 2003, gave up being Knoxville Mayor and was appointed by George W. Bush, the occupant and resident of the White House, as the U.S. Ambassador to Poland. That is, getting Ashe out of the U.S. jurisdiction, not available to nosey Congressmen. t
Bush and Ashe are both members of the satanic cult, "Skull & Bones", headquartered in a windowless building, called "The Tomb" on the campus of Yale University. Part of the initiation procedure is for the new proposed member to divulge his entire sexual history, to several other Bonesmen, so that when he is shoved up into high office, government, finance, etc., he can be blackmailed into silence. The new member has to cavort, au naturel, sometimes more than once, with another Bonesman in a double-size coffin filled with mud.
An older Bonesman member has to also participate in such proceedings. This was done by John F. Kerry slightly older than George W. Bush.
As mentioned in our stories and talk shows, the secret pictures of this, reportedly ended up in the possession of the picture editor of a group of magazines run by American Media, Inc., AMI, headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. That editor was Bob Stevens. Being of near-sighted vision, he took off his glasses and he opened up an envelope addressed to him, holding it close up to his face, breathing thus in spores of anthrax, from which he soon thereafter died.
In his public statements, Skolnick carefully discussed that he usually does not discuss sordid relations EXCEPT if they involved National Security. In the Ashe/Bush matter, the Red Chinese Secret Police have used their knowledge of the matter to blackmail out of the Bush White House, U.S. MILITARY, financial, and industrial secrets, clearly warranting us publicizing the Ashe/Bush matter. Further, Skolnick contended that Ashe and Bush met for sex at a Tennessee location owned by the purported top financier of Osama bin Laden [this Arab owner of Cotton Eyed Ho's nightclub was convicted of theft and money laundering by a federal court in Knoxville, Tennessee]. That U.S. resident moneybags has been granted unlawful protection and immunity from exposure by the Bush White House.
The more than 500 that worked at AMI were evacuated, the building was closed up by America's secret political police, about October 2001, shortly after the 9-11 incidents. The FBI did not permit any of the picture or text files to be removed. Stevens' widow, in a little-known lawsuit against the FBI, claimed the Bureau obstructed her from finding out what happened to her husband.
Rudolph Guiliani, once U.S. District Attorney in New York, later [Mobbed-up] Mayor of New York City [son of a convicted Mafia "enforcer"], founded and owns BioOne, specializing in cleaning up places made toxic by anthrax. He bought the closed AMI building for a "song" and now has possession of the pictures that could scandalize his pal George W. Bush, and Bush's male sex-mate, U.S. Senator John F. Kerry, "laying down and playing dead" while supposedly running for president against 3rd cousin and fellow Bonesman George W. Bush.
In her book, Kitty Kelley claims that, from her sources, Bush, facing embarrassment by the possible revelations of the pictures, arranged for secret U.S. agents to murder Bob Stevens.
Skolnick in his posted and archived statements and on various radio talk shows, discussed how George H.W. Bush, that is Daddy Bush, has been in business with the co-founder of the Medelin, Colombia dope cartel, Carlos Lehder. And that the link was covered up when the Bushies arranged to secretly remove from a U.S. Jail, Lehder, who has disappeared. (Numerous details are in the series, "The Chandra Levy Affair", skolnicksreport.com)
Kitty Kelley raises the issue of Bush, Sr., being in dope trafficking through South America and elsewhere.
Because of George W. Bush's homosexual relationships, and because his wife of convenience, Laura, was a reputed known and open lesbian since high school, and may be a dyke; that George W. Bush may not be the actual father of the twin daughters. Skolnick has raised these issues.
Now, in her book, Kitty Kelley raises the issue of the little-known relationship between Laura and General Tommy Franks [the Jewish invader of Iraq in Gulf War #2 who declared Martial Law for USA coming soon to a city near YOU].
More coming. Stay tuned.
"Are you, Mr. Bush, unable to read and write on an adult level? Are you an alcoholic and, if so, how will this affect your performance as Commander-in-Chief? You say that you have not committed any felonies since 1975. What felonies did you commit PRIOR to that date?"
—Michael Moore, letter to George Bush Jr., November 2000
"General Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government. Franks, who successfully led the U.S. military operation to liberate Iraq, expressed his worries in an extensive interview he gave to the men's lifestyle magazine Cigar Aficionado. In the magazine's December edition, the former commander of the military's Central Command warned that if terrorists succeeded in using a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. or one of our allies, it would likely have catastrophic consequences for our cherished republican form of government. Discussing the hypothetical dangers posed to the U.S. in the wake of Sept. 11, Franks said that 'the worst thing that could happen' is if terrorists acquire and then use a biological, chemical or nuclear weapon that inflicts heavy casualties. If that happens, Franks said, 'the Western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we've seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that we call democracy.' Franks then offered 'in a practical sense' what he thinks would happen in the aftermath of such an attack. 'It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western world it may be in the United States of America that causes our population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event. Which in fact, then begins to unravel the fabric of our Constitution. Two steps, very, very important.' Franks didn't speculate about how soon such an event might take place. Already, critics of the U.S. Patriot Act, rushed through Congress in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, have argued that the law aims to curtail civil liberties and sets a dangerous precedent. But Franks' scenario goes much further. He is the first high-ranking official to openly speculate that the Constitution could be scrapped in favor of a military form of government."

"A military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a yellow fringe, bordered on three sides."

"It turns out that neocon U.S. Army General Tommy Franks, Centcom Commander and head of U.S. troops in the Iraqi war, is Jewish. Seen on MSNBC reviewing the troops in Baghdad, Franks shocked some by proudly giving the Communist clenched fist, outreached arms signal rather than the traditional U.S. military salute. At a press conference on March 25, 2003, General Franks stated, 'The media is a weapon of war.'"

"A majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have in varying degrees been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency.... These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress in a host of all-encompassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal constitutional process. Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens."
—US Senate Report 93-549
"The ultimate ownership of all property is in the State; individual so-called 'ownership' is only by virtue of Government, i.e., law, amounting to mere 'user' and use must be in acceptance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State."

"Look, I admire people like [Ralph] Nader [the Reform Party nominee in 2004] who have strong beliefs and who are willing to go out on the point and get cut to pieces for their country. And he's a very intelligent man. He just has a message he feels compelled that he has to deliver and he's delivering it. And he's doing a good job of it. And I think that's what democracy is all about."
–Ross Perot, founder of the Reform Party, endorsing Republican George Bush Jr's DUI arrest confession on CNN's Larry King Live, November 2, 2000
"This guy has been arrested AT LEAST THREE TIMES! How many people do you know have been arrested three times? Go ahead, do a quick count on your fingers. The answer? NONE! Yet, we are being asked on Tuesday to vote for a man who has been arrested THREE TIMES. For President of the United States! Are they kidding? The Republicans must take us all for idiots. The first arrest of George W. Bush was for theft at a hotel. The second arrest was for disorderly conduct at a football game. The third arrest, we've now learned, is for a very serious crime -- drunk driving. What's the next crime committed by George W. Bush that we will learn of? When will we learn it? Bush himself lied last night when asked about the night he spent in jail. 'I didn't spend time in jail,' he insisted. The officer told the local reporter that Bush, in fact, was handcuffed, taken to the station, and held in custody for at least an hour and a half. And don't tell us that the drunk driving and the 'drinking problem' was just a 'youthful indiscretion.' You were NOT a 'youth' when you were in your THIRTIES on the night you were arrested while careening off the road. The fact is, according to your own admission (if not in these words), you were a drunk and a bum 'til the age of 40, living off your rich daddy who spent his time bailing you out of trouble. For crying out loud -- if any Republican is reading this, I implore you: this man does not deserve to be placed in the highest and most respected office in the land! Bush voters, come to your senses! Please, save our nation this incredible, unfolding, never-ending embarrassment."

Scott McClellan, White House Press Secretary: To do community service? I haven't looked into everything he did 30 years ago, Helen.
Helen Thomas: Can you find out if he actually had --
Scott McClellan: Helen, I don't think we remember every single activity he was involved in 30 years ago.
Helen Thomas: No, this isn't an activity. Was he forced to do community service at any time while he was on --
Scott McClellan: What's your interest in that question? I'm sorry, I just blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: Lots of rumors. I'm just trying to clear up something.
Scott McClellan: Rumors about what?
Helen Thomas: About the President having to do community service while he was in the National Guard, take time out for that.
Scott McClellan: I'm not aware of those rumors. But if you want to blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: Could you look it up? Would you mind asking him?
Scott McClellan: That's why I'm asking what's your interest in that? I just blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: It's what everybody is interested in, whether we're getting the true story on his Guard duty.
Scott McClellan: Well, you have the documents that show the facts, blah, blah, blah....
Helen Thomas: I'm asking you to try to find out from the President of the United States.
Scott McClellan: Like I said, it's well known the different jobs he had and what he was doing previously, blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: I didn't say "previously." I said, while he was on Guard duty.
Scott McClellan: But you're asking me about 30 years ago. I don't think there's a recollection of blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: Well, he would know if he had to take time out.
Scott McClellan: Again, I mean, the issue that was raised was whether or not the President was blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: Well, this is another issue.
Scott McClellan: -- hold on -- that he was serving in Alabama. That was the issue that was raised. We went through blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: So you won't answer the question or you won't try to find out?
Scott McClellan: Well, I'm asking you, what's your interest in that question? I'm just curious, because blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: Did he have to do any community service while he was in the National Guard?
Scott McClellan: Look, Helen, I think the issue here was whether or not the President served in blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: I'm asking you a different question. That's permissible.
Scott McClellan: Can I answer your question? Sure it is. Can I ask you why you're asking it? I'm just blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: Well, I'm interested, of course, in what everybody is interested in. And we have a very --
Scott McClellan: Let me just point out that we've released all the information we have related to this issue, the issue of blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: I asked you whether he had to do any community service while he was in the National Guard.
Scott McClellan: Can I walk through this? blah, blah, blah...
Helen Thomas: It's a very legitimate question.

"A new book by Texas author J.H. Hatfield [just prior to his, er, 'suicide'] claims that George W. Bush was arrested for cocaine possession in 1972, but had his record expunged with help from his family's political connections. In an afterword to his book Fortunate Son: George W. Bush and the Making of an American President (St. Martin's), Hatfield says he took a second look at the Bush cocaine allegations after a story in Salon reporting allegations that Bush did community service for the crime at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center in Houston's Third Ward. Hatfield quotes a former Yale classmate who told him: 'George W. was arrested for possession of cocaine in 1972, but due to his father's connections, the entire record was expunged by a state judge whom the older Bush helped get elected. It was one of those 'behind closed doors in the judges' chambers' kind of thing between the old man and one of his Texas cronies who owed him a favor ... There's only a handful of us that know the truth. He was arrested. He was not charged as far as I know from my sources. What happened was he was picked up, taken to Harris County Jail. Within hours Dad was there. I think his dad might have gotten him switched to another judge. Texas judges are elected, which makes a lot of people believe that they can be manipulated and corrupted.' Hatfield also says that when he asked Scott McClellan to comment on the allegation of a former Yale classmate of Bush's that the presidential hopeful was arrested for cocaine possession in 1972 and had his record expunged in exchange for community service at Project P.U.L.L., the Bush campaign spokesman said, sotto voce, 'Oh, shit,' followed by, 'No comment.'"

Bush And 20 Forgotten Scandals
These are someone's list of public scandals. There is no
mention of his little fling with Condi - or not as the case may be.
Then there is the matter of his pandering to the Jews who run Israel and making war for their benefit.
From The Daily Beast
In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, George H.W. Bush congratulated his son on running a “clean operation." Bush apparently wasn’t paying very close attention. Everyone remembers weapons of mass destruction, the U.S attorney firings. But historians will note that those are only the beginning of the Bush administration scandals…
The Bush Administration will leave the annals of presidential disrepute several times thicker than they found them. There’s Iraq, the hospital visit to John Ashcroft, the U.S attorney firings. But historians will note that those are only the beginning of the Bush administration scandals. Does the name Jeff Gannon ring a bell? Boxgate? What about the anti-prostitution AIDS czar who purchased the services of—wait for it—the D.C. Madam? The Daily Beast has put together 20 of Bush’s greatest forgotten scandals.
Interior Department officials "frequently consumed alcohol at industry functions, had used cocaine and marijuana, and had sexual relationships with oil and gas company representatives."
Sex and Shoplifting
1) In March 2006, Claude Allen, Bush's top domestic policy aide, was arrested when he tried to return items he had shoplifted from Target for cash refunds. Allen, who made $161,000 a year, blamed stress from Hurricane Katrina.
2) In 2005, bloggers perked up their ears when a reporter named Jeff Gannon asked a softball question at a Bush press conference. Some sleuthing turned up nude photos of Gannon—whose real name was James Guckert—on male escort websites.
3) Randall Tobias, Bush’s AIDS Czar, mandated that organizations must oppose prostitution in order to receive American aid. It later emerged that Tobias purchased services through the notorious D.C. Madam, though Tobias maintained he only bought “massages.”
4) The Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service would not seem to be the sexiest government agency. But a departmental investigation last year found that officials had “frequently consumed alcohol at industry functions, had used cocaine and marijuana, and had sexual relationships with oil and gas company representatives.”
Where’d the Money Go?
5) When testifying before Congress in 2007, L. Paul Bremer, the former ambassador to Iraq, was unable to account for as much as $12 billion—about half of his budget—as the head of the Coalition Provisional Authority between May 2003 and June 2004. According to a report by Rep. Henry Waxman, contractors brought bags to meetings in order to collect shrink-wrapped bundles of money.
6) In 2004, Pentagon auditors found that Halliburton had not adequately accounted for $1.8 billion of the bill it sent to the United States government for its work in Iraq and Kuwait.
7) Also that year, Bunnatine Greenhouse, the Army Corp of Engineers' chief contracting officer, charged that KBR, a Halliburton subsidiary, unfairly received billions of dollars worth of no-bid contracts in Iraq. Greenhouse was demoted in 2005.
8) In 2002, Canadian citizen Maher Arar was detained at an airport in New York and spirited away to Syria where he was tortured and held for 10 months by his captors before being returned home. Canadian officials investigated Arar's case, declared he was innocent, and paid him $9 million in compensation. American officials refused to admit the mistake and instead kept Arar on a terrorist watch list.
9) Army Captain James Yee, a Muslim chaplain in Guantanamo Bay, was hooded, shackled, and detained in solitary confinement for 76 days on charges of espionage. Within a year the case against Yee had collapsed and the Army tried to save face by charging him with hoarding pornography.
All the President’s Wordsmiths
10) In an e-mail to friends, Danielle Crittenden, the wife of White House speechwriter David Frum, bragged that her husband had written Bush’s famous “Axis of Evil” line. The e-mail leaked to Slate.com, causing a minor scandal.
11) Part of the self-created mythology of White House speechwriter Michael Gerson was that he composed his speeches in longhand. But as fellow scribe Matthew Scully later noted: “At the precise moment when the State of the Union address was being drafted at the White House by John [McConnell] and me, Mike was off pretending to craft the State of the Union in longhand for the benefit of a reporter.”
12) First, there was Columnist Gate: In 2005, USA Today reported that conservative commentator Armstrong Williams received a $240,000 contract from the Department of Education to promote No Child Left Behind on his television show and to sell other African American journalists on the legislation. Later, The Washington Post uncovered a similar deal with columnist Maggie Gallagher to promote a marriage initiative for the Department of Health.
13) A Defense Department report in 2006 urged the military to end its practice of paying Iraqi journalists to publish pro-American stories in their newspapers, arguing the tactic would "undermine the concept of a free press."
14) According to The New York Times, Karl Rove scored lobbyist Ralph Reed in a lucrative contract with Enron in 1997 to gain his support in the 2000 presidential race.
15) David Safavian, the former chief of staff of the General Services Administration, was convicted of helping Jack Abramoff on a shady land deal as well as concealing a "lavish weeklong golf trip" paid for by Abramoff.
16) As head of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz was forced to resign in disgrace after he helped his "female companion," Shaha Riza, score a $60,000 pay raise and promotion—and then tried to cover it up.
Down the Memory Hole
17) Bush fundraiser Lurita Doan's gig as chair of the General Services Administration went down in flames when she was accused of asking agency staff to help Republican candidates win elections. Doan denied any wrongdoing. When witnesses said she asked her staff at a meeting "How can we use GSA to help our candidates in the next election?" Doan claimed she had no memory of the presentation.
18) Though Army microbiologist Bruce Ivins, who committed suicide in 2008, was suspected of being the anthrax mailer, that didn't keep Bush and Cheney from openly speculating that Al Qaeda was behind the attacks and even going so far as to pressure FBI officials to come up with a Bin Laden connection, according to the New York Daily News.
19) In 2003, Bush went to a warehouse in St. Louis to give a speech entitled “Strengthening America’s Economy.” But the boxes laid out before the presidential podium bore the label "Made in China." The labels were then obscured with white paper. The White House blamed an "overzealous advance volunteer.”
The Last Word
20) The administration ethos was nicely summarized during the attorney-general scandal investigation in a testy exchange between former White House Political Director Sara Taylor and Sen. Patrick Leahy. Taylor: "I took an oath to the president. … And I believe that taking that oath means that I need to respect, and do respect, my service to the President." Leahy: "No, the oath says that you take an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States. That is your paramount duty. I know that the President refers to the government being his government—it's not."

Dynasty of Death' - Historical perspective on the Bush family [ 23 October 2006 ]
There is no historic parallel that can be drawn, nothing compares with the accomplishments of the Bush family. No dictator or tyrant can equal the suffering and destruction they have wrought on humanity, as they are not mere tyrants themselves, but the makers and breakers of tyrants, the organizers and profiteers of war and death. They are not alone and solely responsible for creating the present day military industrial complex, however since 1915 the Bush family has been directly involved in World War One and Two, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, numerous CIA secret wars, the Gulf War, and now a “Never Ending War”. The past four generations of this one family have had a hand in promoting and profiting from most of major wars that America has waged since the beginning of the industrialized age.
Does this sound overstated? The current hooligan is setting a dreadful example by making war. He also created America as a Fascist State
The next war, by Daniel Ellsberg [ 23 October 2006 ]
The Vietnam War was started by deliberate lies to politicians in Washington. The next one [ America attacking Iran ] is being started in just the same way. If Mr. Ellsberg had told what he knew to the right men at the time of the Tonkin Gulf Incident, Vietnam would never have happened. It might happen again.
The Bush Administration
Many a truth is spoken in jest and this one has virtue:-
Joke of the day (Thanks feenyite):
How many members of the Bush administration does it take to change a light bulb?
1. One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed.
