Who Is Israel's Friend?
   by Robert Parry

Endorsing a misguided policy doesn't make Israel safer nor does it advance the interests
of the United States. Indeed, there is a powerful argument that the violent course of action
now being pursued by Tel Aviv and Washington will prove disastrous to both countries.

Waging war may satisfy short-term desires for revenge or relieve a few fears about the future,
but the violence is taking the two nations in a far more dangerous direction, possibly past a
point of no return. If the course is maintained much longer, endless war and widespread
devastation may become inevitable.

Israel cannot escape one overpowering reality: it can never build buffer zones wide enough to
protect itself from possible rocket attacks, anymore than the United States can prevent some
future 9/11 atrocity by invading Arab countries and bombing every suspected "terrorist" target.

Remember when France tried to be our friend?
Remember how they warned us that Iraq was trouble?

Note:  is the most important site in the Internet


Shock & Awe
  by Paul Krugman


One of the truly nightmarish things about the war in Lebanon has been watching Israel
repeat the same mistakes Bush made in Iraq. It's as if Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been
possessed by the deranged spirit of Donald Rumsfeld.

The most compelling argument against an invasion of Iraq wasn't the suspicion many of us had,
which turned out to be correct, that the administration's case for war was fraudulent. It was the
fact that the real reason government officials and many pundits wanted a war — their belief that
if the United States used its military might to "hit someone" in the Arab world, never mind exactly
who, it would shock and awe Islamic radicals into giving up terrorism — was, all too obviously,
a childish fantasy..

"Why does he hate the troops?"



"The White House position appears to be to refuse to even contemplate ideas that, 
  elsewhere, are widely considered obvious: That regardless of who started it, Israeli 
  strikes are taking a vastly more terrible toll on Lebanese civilians than Hezbollah is 
  taking on Israelis; that Israel's actions are turning the region ever more resolutely 
  against the United States and its goals; that the death of 37 children in an air strike 
  is a bloodbath that shocks the world; and that there is more urgency to stop the killing 
  than there is to pursue a dubious and so far disproved theory of regional rebirth."  
    --Dan Froomkin,      WaHoPo


Subject: Arlen "Magic Bullet" Specter

Arlen "Magic Bullet" Specter has been a janus-faced liar for more than forty years.
His fulsome protestations against the Bush administration's pursuit of more executive power
were nothing more than camouflage for his true beliefs exemplified by this proposed bill.

He has never been a friend of democracy; he has served and is still serving
his authoritarian masters every chance he gets. He cannot be trusted.
 Steve in Phoenix

(For those who don't know, Specter was on ther Warren Commission
 that determined that Oswald was indeed, the "lone gunman.")


They're begging us for help.
Will the Democrats hear their cries?

Kiss me, Joe!

Robert Fisk on the Bombing of Qana

Did [Israel] say, "Oh, well, then, the man who launched the missile is hiding with the children
in the basement of the house we're going to hit"? Is it the case now that if you happen to live
in a house next to where someone launches a missile, you are to be sentenced to death?
Is that what Israel thinks the war is about?

Clearly, Fisk isn't a neutral observer.

I'm sitting here, for example, in my house next to a car park.
What if someone launches a missile from the car park?
Am I supposed to die for that? Is that a death sentence for me?

I think Fisk sees things Mel's way.
He's certainly asking a boatload of extra-stupid questions.
Trust me, if a missle launcher pulls up next to Casa de Bart,
I'm not going to stand around and engage somebody in vigorous debate.
I'm getting 500 yards away from my damn house as fast as I can.

Is that how Israel wages war?
If I have children in the basement, are they to die for that?
And then I'm told it's my fault or it's Hezbollah's fault?
You know, these are serious moral questions.

No, those are extra-stupid questions.
You know the saying "Waiting for the other shoe to drop?"

When they fire a missle at Israel, everyone knows what's going to happen next.
It's more certain than 5 follows 4. It's a fact, yet Fisk is shocked - why?
Your choices are to run like hell or be blown to bits.
Why do people like Fisk act all shocked when that other shoe drops?

Odd that Fisk doesn't assign one percent of blame to the people who set up
the rocket launcher in his back yard - they get a total pass.


How stupid is CNN?

  Kyra Phillips - cute but stupid.

Kyra Phillips: Mayor Nobody, do you think Castro is alive?
Mayor Nobody: It's hard to say - Cuba is a closed society.

Kyra Phillips: Congressman Nobody, do you think Castro is alive?
Congressman Nobody: It's hard to say - Cuba is a closed society.

Kyra Phillips: Senator Nobody, do you think Castro is alive?
Senator Nobody: It's hard to say - Cuba is a closed society.

Lady, are you nuts?
Why ask a question again and again that nobody can answer?
Why doesn't some CNN producer tell her to knock it off?



"The United States and Israel ...are teetering on the brink 
  of a massive defeat in Lebanon and thus in the war on terror."  
      -- David Horowitz,  (R-Liar, Whore)  Link


Bush gang running scared

Like a gang of twitchy hit men afraid they've botched the job, the Bush Regime is 
creeping back to the scene of the crime: the Congressional backrooms where they 
thought they'd put the kibosh on the American Republic once and for all. But it seems 
there is still a flicker of life in the victim - and thus a threat that the gangsters might 
have to face the music somewhere down the line. So they went back to the bagmen 
on Capitol Hill this week, ordering their minions to provide retroactive legal cover for 
the rank offenses committed by the big boys at the top when they devised their torture 
regimen - in knowing, deliberate violation of the U.S. War Crimes Act, which was 
passed by acclamation in the Republican-led Congress in 1996, and toughened up 
the following year with the support of the Pentagon, the WaHoPo reports.


Subject: Hagel?

If as so many liberals insist the EVIL JEWISH LOBBY runs this country,
Hagel's call for a ceasefire that is opposed by Israel should mean he will soon
be serving fries at Burger King.

Instead, you have him being promoted to GOP presidential nominee.
Is the EVIL JEWISH LOBBY now siding with Hezbollah?
Could you lefties get your conspiracy theories straight?

It's true that many liberals hate Israel, but I don't take positions based on
what other liberals are saying - unless it makes sense.

What I meant was, Bush is so hated by so many people, righties included,
opposing him on something substantial immediately sets one apart from the pack.
That's a smart move if one wants to be president.

Maybe this is Hagel's Sista Soulja moment.


Subject: Nader voters

I think I see what you mean: 
You would rather focus on bringing the Democrats back to power first, then talk about reforms later. 

To me, that's clearer than Lake Concha.
The Dems can't pee without Fascist permission.
If we're going to change the government, let's control the change.

That's certainly a step in the right direction, although first you would need to replace the Democratic
leadership with actual thinking human beings. Besides, the Democratic Party itself benefits from the 
status quo (two-party system, closed debates, no limits on corporate funding).

Can you use "thinking" and "Democrats" in the same sentence?

I'd rather use non-electoral pressure tactics--that's what usually brings down rogue governments, 
not a polite vote in the legislature. Civil disobedience, wildcat strikes, an anti-government coalition,
that sort of thing. We have much more power than we think, we've just forgotten how to use it.
all the best,
Andrew in Montreal

Lick My Silent Sports Car
 by Mark Morford

Oh my God do they ever lie. All of them: Big Auto, Big Oil, BushCo, Pennzoil and Havoline 
and Saudi Arabia and crusty Alaska Senator Ted Stevens and the oil lobbyists and lackey 
scientists working for the Department of Energy and all the rest, on down the line and right up 
to your garage door. Lie lie lie lie lie like evil little ratdogs because they are, after all, corporate 
greedmonkeys and war profiteers and duplicitous oil-sucking cretins (is that too polite?) who 
would eat their own mother's heart for a notable uptick in share/barrel price. Nevertheless, it's 
always a bit of a jolt when you see it all up close and personal and they basically rub it in your face.

But they lie, most of all, about how much we still require foreign oil, because these billion-dollar 
corporations claim they can't possibly afford to develop sufficiently advanced technology in your
lifetime to create a 100-percent emissions-free, oil-free, ultragreen vehicle that still has all the 
comforts and performance of a regular car.

Nice pipe dream, they say. Here, have a bloated SUV, they say. Sorry about all your dead kids 
in Iraq, they add, smirking like a chimp and blowing their noses into a big pile of Halliburton profits.

Hurricane Chris and Florida

Somebody needs to tell Der Monkey because we don't want another...

Oh, that's right - with his brother as governor, Bush gives a shit about Florida.

"I still don't care about black people..."


Subject: Perkel for Cali Governor

Bart, you said,

> Marc Perkel for California governor! 

But...won't every vote for Perkel take one away from Angelides 
(the Democratic candidate, I know you've never heard of him)?  

Wouldn't that make Marc Perkel the Ralph Nader of California? 
(After all, if Marc runs I'll vote for him, but if he doesn't I'll vote for Phil Angelides!)

ha ha

I love challenge mail

If Angelides has a chance to win, I support him.
The e-mail I got described Musclebrain in a cakewalk.

If it's Musclebrain in a cakewalk, I know someone with a brain
who'd enjoy slashing "Der Terminator" to death in a debate.

Marc may be a GOOD debater, he might be a MASTER.
But when you have the facts and the truth on your side, winning is easy!

I'm not angry with Democrats for being Democrats.
I'm angry with them for having the damn facts on their side 
but the pink tutus are too timid to mention it!

Write this on Iraq.
Democrats win when the candidate speaks the facts.


 Iraq pumps 2,000,000 barrels a day,
(and that was before the 2003 Halliburton Upgrade)
 times today's oil price which is going to $100 a barrel
makes $200,000,000 Bush will steal every day.

You heard it here first.
Oil is going to $100 a barrel, then to $200

No wonder they were so eager to start a war

Bush's "Bring 'em on" death taunt is up to...

2578....2580 American victims


By Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Bush will have killed
more Americans than his old partner Osama.

Subject: waiting for hell and hurricanes

Re :Standing around a missle launcher:

Or maybe they're like the folks in Katrina No damn money to get out of town,
particularly when anything moving is getting blown up as well.

I'm from Florida and have seen idiots look at a category 5 and say "I'm staying"
The emotional power of staying with your home, the last thing you have left is
so great that people cannot rationally consider their lives and safety. KG

Kelly, I get that, but in the Lebanon case, they could at least move 500 yards away
when the rocket is preparing to launch because Israel will hit back within seconds or minutes.

They need to consider an outgoing rocket as damn dangerous.


Talk you don't hear much...

VITO CORLEONE   My wife is crying upstairs. I hear cars coming to the house.
Consiglieri of mine, I think you should tell your Don what everyone seems to know...

Ah, I didn't tell Mama anything. I was about to come up and wake you just now and tell you...

But you needed a drink first.

TOM (shaking his head, then says quietly)

Well, now you've had your drink.

TOM (his voice breaking)
They shot Sonny on the Causeway. He's dead.

VITO CORLEONE (exhales, bows his head; physically shaken and weakened)
I want -- no inquiries made. I want no acts of vengeance. I want you to arrange
a meeting, with the heads of the Five Families. This war stops now.

Don Corleone loved his surviving son more than he wanted revenge.
You don't see much of that these days...

Mel Gibson - victim?
 What killed Sugar Tit's career?  Alcohol or hate?


Some behavior experts argue that gross intoxication can lead to a free association
of ideas that are unrelated to an individual's true character.

"Basically, the person talks gibberish … and can behave in a very bizarre way," said
Dr. Bankole Johnson, chairman of psychiatric medicine at the University of Virginia.

"They might not even be certain of what they are saying. They don't understand
what they are saying, and they don't mean what they are saying," Johnson said.

I've owned two bars which means I've spent thousands of hours
with drunk people and it just doesn't work that way.

Take Ol' Bart, for instance.
If I had too many drinks, I might go after Bush, Cheney or the vulgar Pigboy but
there's no way I'd go after Italians or house painters or Nebraskans or surgeons.
Clearly, Gibson hates Jews and has a Republican view of women as objects or toys.

Lawrence O'Donnell (West Wing producer) said that Gibson's religion,
which is a nutty off-shoot of Catholic that makes regular Catholics seem sane,
is that all Jews will burn in Hell for all eternity - discussion over - period.

Why would somebody dedicate their only life to a God that cruel?
God created a race of people JUST so he could torture them for eternity?
Serial killers have more compassion than that.

Those of us without religion have no motive to hate other religions.


Subject: our WPE

In Omaha, my WPE sticker and T-shirt are receiving a 90% thumbs up.

Living in this pretty solid red state, I hope this a trend toward Democrats is 
something they don't fuck up. I'm going to hold my nose to vote for Nelson,

9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes

Through the heat of the attack the wheels of what were, perhaps, some of the more 
modern pieces of equipment in the room—four Dictaphone multi-channel reel-to-reel 
tape recorders mounted on a rack in a corner of the operations floor—spun impassively,
recording every radio channel, with time stamps.

The recordings are fascinating and chilling. A mix of staccato bursts of military code; urgent, 
overlapping voices; the tense crackle of radio traffic from fighter pilots in the air; commanders'
orders piercing through a mounting din; and candid moments of emotion as the breadth of the 
attacks becomes clearer.

Bush's Stupidity
 ...and why it's a threat

"'We discussed a lot of issues. The Prime Minister has laid out a comprehensive plan. 
 That's what leaders do. They see problems, they address problems, and they lay out a plan to 
 solve the problems. The Prime Minister understands he's got challenges and he's identified priorities." 
 -- America's Idiot, with the Prime Minister of Iraq, July 25, 2006. The truly shocking thing about 
 that bizarre statement is that it wasn't even in response to a question. Those were Bush's opening 
 remarks. He did, one assumes, actually meet with Maliki. And they must have talked about something. 
 But Bush doesn't seem to have been listening. Instead, he sounds like a college kid bullshitting in section 
 because he didn't do the assigned reading. "We talked about security in Baghdad," Bush observed, 
 delving into specifics. "No question the terrorists and extremists are brutal."


Subject: Carson's Crusades

Heya Bartcop,

Sounds like some of your monkeys need to do some reading of their own. 
I studied the Crusades rather extensively in college. 

Until those ill-bred Europeans came crashing into Jerusalem, the Christians 
and the Muslims got along rather well throughout the Middle East. Both groups 
were pretty civilized toward each other. There were some very poignant stories 
of the two religions working together against the European invaders, who got to 
Jerusalem ready to slaughter everybody in sight, Christian OR Muslim. 

Much of the Crusades were less of a holy war than a race war. 
The Christians and the Muslims around Jerusalem knew that. 
I wonder how much of their animosity today is a direct result of Western meddling?
