Pinochet's business model wasn't working out - the Bush Admin. decided to pull the plug on El Jefe.

It really comes down to that.

Here are Shrub's bathroom self-portraits He sucks at painting almost as much as he did as President

Strange boy-man.

If you look at the map, it appears that the Israelis attacked an antiaircraft unit along with a

military installation in Zabadani, which is about 30 kms NW of Damascus about mid-way to Beirut.

The story about Syria handing Hezbollah missiles looks like a cover story for what was actually a military attack on a defensive anti-aircraft unit. The SA-17 is pretty much useless without the long-range radar and command vehicles, and if the IAF attacked a "convoy" near the border with Lebanon, that should tell you that this is was what actually happened:

It looks like like one of Syria's mobile air defense units was in the area, which is their right, perhaps in anticipation of an Israel air strike. It appears they may have been onto something, there.

It isn't at all obvious on its face that this was necessarily going to be a gift to Lebanese Hezbollah.

Meanwhile, those whose negligence led to 9/11 and who brainwashed surviving witnesses get medals

and honorable retirement. "We are all honorable men."

Disgusting, dishonorable and without justice. The kind of thing that brings down once great nations.

RESPONSE TO ARTICLE POSTED: Ex-CIA officer John Kiriakou sentenced for leaking name on agency's use of torture.....

Then as now, the real political violence comes from the Gov't.

What do you know about half-arsed tries? ;-)

We'll agree to disagree about the nature, origins and definition of theft.

Must be why the Right is so obsessed with giving Embryoids, like cos., full legal status as people

Their only protection is to be part of a larger machine. While that's essentially a paranoid schizophrenic vision, the essence of fascism (and all authoritarian political thought, e.g. Hobbes "The Leviathan"), or plain Science Fiction, there is some metaphorical truth in these unhealthy, deeply disturbing images of how American society operates. Ergo, The Matrix "Hive Mind":

Machines that control and harvest thoughts (drawing by paranoid schizophrenic):

Anybody notice how many people replied to this thread? Kinda weird in itself, isn't it?

Response to Original Post: "Go outside and look northeast!"

As Howard Zinn taught, "class" is the last unspeakable word in American political discourse.

Somehow, we are so exceptional that the reality and analysis of class uniquely doesn't arise or apply here. That is because, as I found out over the course of three years in various course and seminars with Prof. Zinn, in American politics, the media, and in academia -- places where elsewhere in the world this subject would constantly be haggled out in public -- we are either under a regime of totalitarian self-censorship or successfully segregated safely away from wider public notice and comment. "Serious people" just don't speak about class in America, not outside carefully controlled forums, anyway, so it doesn't exist.

What gets said on these subjects in paneled committee rooms and graduate seminars never, ever gets covered in the corporate media. That is because news and information in America are products, privately owned and tightly controlled by corporations who have a virtual monopoly on the means of mass dissemination of ideas. That reality has only changed at the margins from what it was in the '80s with the coming of the Internet.

The United States in this sense is the least free of all the western societies, and for more than 75 years Americans have paid an increasingly steep price for that in the poverty of our politics and the inequalities of American society
