Hey, William Kristol: Hit the Road, Warmonger!
Hit the Road, Warmonger! The late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir hatefully barked that the Palestinians "never existed." William Kristol acts the same way towards them. The next time he appears on TV, watch him very closely. He reminds me of HAL, the computer from the space film '2001', with no soul, heart or feelings.

DUDE, WHERE'S MY INTEGRITY?
So Michael Moore has progressive political views on some issues. So what? News flash: So does John McCain; Dick Cheney even expressed "progressive" views on homosexuality in a televised interview. No, Moore isn't either of those people, he's a lot more progressive than they are and maybe than most people. But that doesn't make him a hero, especially when he uses the mileage from those progressive views to direct liberal scorn at "the left", to openly call for a war criminal to run for President, and to express belief in the guilt of a death row inmate with lots of evidence for his innocence.

Just remember: vote Democrat, Mumia's guilty, and forget all those crazy causes. So says Michael Moore, and the chorus of loyal liberals following in his path. Or, if they're not actually saying it, they sure aren't dissenting.

Note that the collision of two Black Hawk helicopters is finally being attributed to a missile attack; the Iraqi civilians on the scene reported it correctly on the day it happened.

Bu$h's PR Stunt In Baghdad Underscores US Crisis
Air Force One flew into Baghdad under conditions of secrecy so total that air traffic controllers at the airport did not know the identity of the plane. Bush was taken from his ranch in Crawford, Texas in an unmarked car, and Air Force One flew under a false call signal, with its lights off and escorted by US jet fighters.

The siege mentality of the administration is shown by the restrictions imposed on the handful of reporters and cameramen who accompanied the president. The stridently pro-war Fox News camera crew were the only ones permitted to record the event, with even CNN being rebuffed from participation.

Bush spent 27 hours in the air in order to spend only two-and-a-half hours on the ground in Iraq. His own itinerary suggests that the US military barely controls even the perimeter of the Baghdad airport, the headquarters of the occupation force.

The New York Times: A Proposal For Ethnic Cleansing In Iraq
The NYT advances a modest proposal for a bloodbath, what it terms a "three-state solution," based on the partition of Iraq along ethnic and religious lines.

Its author Leslie Gelb previously headed the Council on Foreign Affairs, the influential Washington think tank that provides a forum for corporate executives, CIA and State Department officials, and a select group of establishment journalists and academics with intimate ties to these camps. Gelb himself followed stints at the Pentagon and the State Department with his position as columnist and editor at the Times. His proposal is a clear manifestation of a reactionary nexus between the US State Department, Israeli intelligence and the Times' editorial board.

A powerful banking group with close links to the Pentagon, which has also invested money on behalf of the Bin Laden family, is in talks to bail out beleaguered Daily Telegraph owner Conrad Black.

If Carlyle - which, despite being only 15 years old, manages more than $14 billion in funds on behalf of investors such as George Soros and the Bin Laden family (who are estranged from their son Osama) - does take a stake in Hollinger, questions are bound to be asked over the links between the two firms, both of which have powerful links to the military.

I Know When Bush Is Lying: His Lips Move
Hey! His lips aren't moving! The CIA has now announced that the Iraqi resistance is "broad, strong and getting stronger", with numbers estimated at 50,000. The Bush regime's panic is reflected in its adoption of Israeli revenge tactics, using F-16 aircraft to drop 500lb bombs on residential areas called "suspect zones". They are also burning crops: another Israeli tactic. The parallels are now Palestine and Vietnam; more Americans have died in Iraq than in the first three years of the Vietnam war. The Americans hold more than 4,000 prisoners - a higher figure, it is estimated, than those incarcerated at any time by Saddam Hussein. "Out there", the Iraqi dead and suffering are still unpeople, their latest death toll not worthy of the front page.

As early as Aug. 6, 1999, "NY Times," Abe Rosenthal, an influential voice within the Israel First Brigade, was demanding a U.S.-led attack on Iraq. He also championed the economic sanctions against that beleaguered nation, totally oblivious to the widespread suffering they were causing (Casi.org.uk).
