The Israelis, as we know, have a blank check to do whatever they hell they want, whenever they want, with impunity and immunity. Manufacturing weapons of mass destruction? check Flouting UN security council resolutions? check (some 70 times in the last few decades) Carrying out civilian massacres in neighboring territories (numerous checks) "Accessory before the fact" (at least) to the mass murder of 3000 people on 9/11/2001? check Dressing up as Arabs and setting...
Trumptman, since when did a few disgruntled folk represent the "entire left" as you infer? How come you see the world in hard monochrome with the contrast maxed out? You know, as in "every muslim wants to build a bomb", those who want moderate health care reform are "raving Marxists", and the token, bought, liberal (Olbermann) amongst the ranks of rightwing hardliners in the corporate media, gets you blowing fuses.... Wow!
An idle question...I am not stating an opinion either way: The US is at war against the Taliban. The US military today killed 12 civilians in an attack. This was apparently considered a "mistake", and the wrong target was hit. An act of terrorism? Yes or No? The Taliban, regardless of what one thinks of them, are in a war situation and thus are entitled to defend themselves... and presumably attack military targets belonging to their enemy. Consider the following...
Nonsense. If this new program had been authorized by the Bush Administration, you would have supported it 100%, no questions asked. Everything you have said in past threads infers such. I don't support this new paranoid bullbiscuits measure (pretending to be about 'national security') on the part of ObamaCorp any more than if it was by Bush, or whoever. It's another part of the gravy train of corporate welfare that is being played on by both past and current...
So, SDW, where do *you* stand on this issue.. and why? President Bush authorized warrantless-wiretapping, and I recall that you strongly supported that move in past commentary. So... why did you support it? ... was it because it was introduced by GWB, a Republican.. and ... knowing that you are a very fervent GOP supporter, anything that Bush did was the ticket? Or do you support it because (regardless of who authorized/authorizes it), you believe that such a strategy...
There are true skeptics, and pseudoskeptics. The following characteristics of real skeptics and pseudoskeptics are courtesy Prof. Marcello Truzzi (1935-2003), founder of a number of organizations devoted to skeptical inquiry, including CSICOP ( Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal). Truzzi was skeptical of investigators and debunkers who determined the validity of a claim prior to investigation. He accused CSICOP of increasingly...
Yes, undoubtedly. :OThere's plenty of weasel talk from either side of the aisle regarding the wholesale demonization of an entire race or people and a religious faith based largely on inherited hatreds and other dysfunctions. On this drive, both major parties are more or less united in principle, with only subtle differences in the methods employed. Of course neither side would ever admit it in public.
Yes. And when the shills and apologists for authoritarianism try to argue their case.. (there are a few on this site, we know who they are )... they do have two very effective weapons: the ability to shout the loudest and longest, via the default unquestioning, knee-pad clad corporate media propaganda/spin-machine, and a barrage of relentless name calling and ad hominem attacks, in lieu of reality, facts and solid argument. As Mark Twain put it so succintly: "A lie can...

(Sarcasm aside)... they don't of course... they love 'em. The US muslim community (depending on the survey) numbers between 5 and 10 million people. Thats a lot of "freedom-hating" people, who have no intention of moving to Iran, Pakistan or wherever else in Africa, the Middle east or SE Asia o wherever else one might care to cite.. presumably because they "hate America" so much. Thats why they enjoy being part of the community here, because they have such a hard, horrible...
