The Crack-Up - Bush and Blair piously kneeling in prayer - Chris Floyd
http://context.themoscowtimes.com/stories/2004/04/16/12...

<snip>
(W)hat a sickening spectacle these "leaders" presented last weekend: George W. Bush and Tony Blair piously kneeling in prayer on Easter Sunday, pledging their fealty to Jesus Christ and His teachings of mercy and lovingkindness -- while ordering missile strikes on crowded cities, while filling hospitals with the mutilated bodies of young children, while shoveling fat war profits to their cronies and contributors. Only the most craven, bootlicking sycophant could fail to be revolted at the hypocrisy of these murderous cynics. They're a perfect match in moral idiocy for their crack-brained brother-in-arms, Osama bin Laden.
...
As we've noted so often here before, the conquest of Iraq has nothing to do with terrorism or liberation or WMD or national security or Arab democracy or Bush family revenge. It has been planned for years by Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld and other Bush retainers, planned openly, and for one reason only: to give the United States direct military control of the Middle East in order to dominate global economic and political life for "the New American Century." This need was so great, said the group -- openly, in September 2000 -- that it "transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein." It wouldn't have mattered if Saddam had found Jesus, or freed his people, or set himself on fire in Madison Square Garden: The Bushists were always going to invade and occupy Iraq -- always, no matter what.

1. Chris Floyd deserves the medal of honor

he has been writing the truth since the 2000 coup d'etat (that's when I first found him - he's probably been writing the truth his whole life.)

2. I didn't know of him before then either
In fact I think it was on DU that I first encountered his columns.

He's never tries to finesse his opinions -- just says it like it is, in his special way.

3. Yeah, the stuff he writes about bush* & co. is absolutely devastating.
But why do you have to go to the Moscow Times to read his columns? Why doesn't anyone else publish his work? Does anyone know? And where does he live?

I read all his stuff but know nothing about the man, and I am very curious. Can anyone help me out?

6. His column is carried by only two newspapers
The Moscow Times and the St. Petersburg Times. He contributes to Counterpunch from time to time. That's all I know, but his email address is cfloyd72@hotmail.com if you want to write and tell him that a lot of DUers are curious about him!

9. Didn't See
The pious kneeling.

However, it scares me that things I read about in class are now happening again.

In the end everyone will die. In the end everyone will have to answer to his/her beliefs. In the end everyone will have to answer.

In the end "Let them eat cake" is a damming, answer unless...? they think that they are "gods".
