Can anybody tell me what he died for?
Who Is Israel's
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: Consortiumnews.com is the most important site in
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..
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."
Subject: Arlen "Magic Bullet"
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?
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
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
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
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
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.
Kyra Phillips - cute but stupid.

"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)
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.
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
Is the EVIL JEWISH LOBBY now siding with Hezbollah?
Could you lefties get your conspiracy theories
It's true that many liberals hate Israel, but
I don't take positions based on
what other liberals are saying - unless it makes
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
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.

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.

Wouldn't that make Marc Perkel the Ralph Nader

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
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.
