“There are known knowns.
These are things we know that we know.
There are known unknowns.
That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know.
But there are also unknown unknowns.
There are things we don’t know we don’t know.”
-- Rummy, clarifying U.S. war policy at a Pentagon briefing,
If he launches an attack on Iraq without the approval of the UN, Bush will be guilty
of crimes on par with those committed by the Nazis who were tried at Nuremburg in 1948.
...also crucial was the ban on unprovoked
attack by one nation against another. The fuse that
set off World War II was the 1939 Nazi attack on Poland, which was unprovoked by any
stretch of the military imagination. By all accounts it was an act of aggression and conquest,
which led ultimately to as many as 50 million deaths over the next six years.
A week before the unprovoked Nazi assault
on Poland, Hitler promised his generals he would
provide "a propagandistic reason for starting the war. He then justified a "preemptive" strike
based on lies about a non-existent Polish Army attack against Germany.
The Nazi attack date had been set for more
than a year.
Bush and his ultra-right-wingers tried to get Clinton to go to
war with Saddam years ago.
They've been planning this for many years, and 9-11 gave them a perfect excuse.
The "lucky" bastard got his trifecta and everyone on Earth loses as a result.
The number of U.S. troops that would be required to administer Iraq after a U.S.-led
military campaign is "not knowable" because of the large number of variables in how a
conflict might unfold, Rummy said Thursday.
He also said it "makes no sense to try"
to come up with cost estimates for a war in Iraq
because the variables "create a range that simply isn't useful."
Hey, it's none of our business how the King wants to spend his
I'm surprised Rummy didn't just laugh at the question and walk away.
After all, "terra" would win if we knew how much the B.F.E.E. was skimming.
"The (Gop-controlled) Congress did not respond
to $3.5 billion
for homeland security we asked for.... That's a disappointment."
-- His Smirkiness, February 24, 2003
Bill Clinton never had a problem defending America.
If Bush isn't up to the job, let's get a leader to take his place.
Saddam and George show
Ignoring the fact that George Bush declined Saddam Hussein's challenge to
a televised debate, Tim Dowling exclusively reveals what could have happened
Saddam: Thank you, Great Satan. I hope that in today's debate we may
find some common ground between the Iraqi people's commitment to peace
and human progress and America's desire to destroy the Middle East.
Bush: Do I answer that?
Blair: No. The first question is quite simply this: do you have any links with al-Qaida?
Bush: I do not.
Blair: The question is for President Saddam.
the Right Hates America
If they love America so much, why are they working overtime to destroy it?
The right can't stand American culture. Rock & roll swept the planet, helped bring down the
Berlin wall, inspired everyone with its free-spirited, rebellious American energy. Who fought it
every step of the way? The right, that's who. Same goes for hip-hop, another great American
export, subject of Congressional inquisitions. And don't even get me started on Hollywood.
Billions of people love our movies, but the right acts like the whole movie industry is the
last refuge of Stalinism.
"Ari Fleischer's ability to repeat a lie even
after it's been shown, repeatedly, to be false
is what separates him from the amateurs. Jonathan Chait called Fleischer on his
nation-building lie in the June 10 New Republic. Chatterbox subsequently wrote it up as
a Whopper on May 31..But Fleischer insisted on repeating the lie again this week.
Al Kamen called him on it in his Feb. 28 Washington Post column, and now Chatterbox
is Whoppering him once more. It won't make any difference. Fleischer can't be shamed.
He'll just keep saying it, because he likes the way it sounds."
--Timothy Noah, Gaslighting the press, slate.msn.com
Blair and Smirky sing to each other
Since Bush claims he hasn't made up his mind yet,
why is it treason to prefer the peace option over the war option?
I mean, since he's still considering the peace option...
"...when Bush and his colleagues talk about
Saddam posing a "threat" to America - they don't
mean he's going to drop bombs on Washington - what they mean is that he poses a threat to
American military dominance in the Middle East. Does Tony Blair know that's what they mean?
--Terry Jones, Could Blair look at the internet?, observer.co.uk
Subject: NYPD Blue
I really have no opinion as to whether the
network went too far with nudity.
But what does occur to me is that, if Bill Clinton were still president you'd hear
the endless complaints from the religiously insane carping about how this proves
that Bill Clinton is destroying our morality.
But now that Bush is leading the parade
toward war to liberate Halliburton's
oil from Iraqi sand, and all the networks are fully on board -- not one peep.
Remember this album cover?

Oh, man, this country is sliding down the
greased pole of oblivion much faster than I even thought.
I spent a very eye-opening few minutes visiting Michael Savage's website (www.michaelsavage.com).
Scary doesn't even come close to describing what I saw. Don't get me wrong: I'm all for free speech,
and I think everyone has the right to say what they feel, no matter how sleazy or contemptible.
But, honestly, should truly depraved souls
like Savage be given a coveted national soapbox?
Certainly Savage's twisted, racist views should not be treated as mainstream, and that's exactly
what MSNBC is doing by giving him a primetime talk show slot of his own. If anything, he should be
relegated to a 100-watt FM station somewhere in the wilds of Montana. This garbage looks way too
close to Naziism for my liking, and if we're not careful these views will be considered more and more
normal. In fact, I think that has already happened. Again, I say, scary.
It's time that little guys like me went
on the offensive. There isn't a whole bunch I can do, but I need
to do what I can. I just signed up with Bartcop to give $10 a month. You are truly fighting the good fight,
the fight for real truth and real justice. Keep it up, sir, and know that there are a whole bunch of us
behind you all the way!
Kevin, thanks for that.
I expect Savage will get great ratings on MSNBC.
The crazier/father-right they are, the more the ditto-monkeys lap it up.

And the Top 10 Movies Box Office
and Republicans: never mix the two
-by Houston Wade
Eisenhower was not just limited to Afghanistan; he screwed up in Vietnam as well. The US educated Ho Chi Min
asked Eisenhower to help him in negotiations with France to grant Vietnam its independence from French colonial rule.
Ike told Ho Chi Min "no," citing that France had suffered enough in World War II and needed Vietnam to remain a
political power. This, in turn, forced Ho Chi Min to ask China (a country whom Vietnam had been at war with for over
700 years and still has border disputes with to this day) to help them gain their independence from France. France went
to war in Vietnam and because the French have become absolute pussies when it comes to fighting a war they had to
turn the reigns over to the US "observers." The involvement of the observers led to an all out war and ended with our
ultimate withdrawal and left some 50,000 US and countless millions of Vietnamese dead.

W. the Biggest Liar Since LBJ?
by P.M. Carpenter
Not since the Johnson-Nixon era has an American president's credibility been so abysmal.
Persistent lies about foreign policy -- how we got into Vietnam, why we were staying in and
how we were faring militarily and politically -- forced early retirement on a discredited LBJ.
Even Lyndon had had enough, already. And though Richard Nixon ran with experts when it
came to foreign policy fibs, the fatuous cover-up of domestic misdemeanors chiefly strangled
his credibility and finally sent him packing.
Assuming presidential history is still taught
in some high schools, the above,
I imagine, is at least the bare minimum that most students are asked to retain into adulthood:
Future history students, however, shall have an even easier time of it when asked
to recall the gist of George W. Bush's downfall: He lied about everything.

> About 150 backers of Bush's war gathered in the gray, slushy cold near the Washington Monument

"Bush said the overthrow of Hussein would help
bring peace to the Middle East. I truly hope
that he is right this time. But, like the tax cut that was supposed to improve the economy,
the budget that was not going to result in massive deficits, the lack of response to the energy
crisis that was supposedly not caused by the greed of energy brokers, the invisible reform of
executive stock-option policy that was going to put the market back on its feet and the foreign
policy that was not going to make the United States the most disliked country on the planet,
I guess we'll find out soon enough."

You guys need to prepare yourselves for the coming of Lisa Marie Presley.
One of those "Entertainment Tonight" kind of shows previewed her
from her first album coming out this month, ...and hold on to your seats.
Hit "refresh" - Lisa moves
Besides being world-class, stunningly, drop-dead gorgeous, she
have her Daddy's moves when she's performing, and that's a good thing.
"Lisa the Pelvis" doesn't rhyme, but it sure does fit. I didn't really
get a chance to
hear her sing (they talked over the video clip) but Sean Lennon showed us he has
his Dad's pipes so I wonder if Lisa had the good luck to inherit as well.
They say her video is playing on VH-1 but every time I go there
to look for it
they're doing game shows or someone's biography. I guess I'll just put a tape on
and let it go 6 hours - eventually it ought to show up. Album out April 8th.

Sidesteps His Adams Problem
by Joe Conason
Like many top New York Republicans, Mr. Pataki is a loyal ally of the Bush administration and its
war on terror, but he is also a longtime admirer of Mr. Adams, the charismatic leader of a political
party affiliated with the IRA. Mr. Adams put Mr. Pataki—and other New York Republicans, such
as Long Island Congressman Peter King—in a tough spot several days ago, when he blasted the
Bush administration’s plans for war on Iraq.
"If war is to be declared," Mr. Adams said, "it
should be war against poverty and for equality."
With rhetoric like that, one is tempted to ask: Why were Mr. Pataki and other G.O.P. leaders
marching around with this guy in the first place?
"It’s interesting how the actors that are criticized
for their political activism always happen
to be Democrats... The press does not criticize Republican actors Ronald Reagan, Arnold
Schwarzenegger and Charlton Heston for expressing their strongly-held political opinions."

Some British "human Shields" Flee Iraq, Cite Safety Fears
Some of the peace activists who went to Iraq to serve as human shields in the event of war returned home,
fearing for their safety, a spokesman said Sunday. The human shields are mostly European activists who
drove from London to Baghdad in two double-decker buses last month, intending to guard civilian sites
from a U.S.-led military attack.
Those who returned home had safety or financial concerns, spokesman Christiaan Briggs said.
"The aim was always a mass migration and if
we had had five to ten thousand people here
there would never be a war," he said. "We do not have those numbers."
You mean the whole thing was a bluff?
