Who knew turkeys could be affectionate.

People need to take a deep breath before buying into crap about new Russian missiles

Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me. i remember clearly back in the 90s before the first Iraq invasion watching a story on 60 Minutes about a massive canon Iraq had developed that could lob missiles into Europe. Another show in the weeks that followed revealed the horrific and repressive conditions in Iraq. I bought into all that. I remember clearly believing that 60 Minutes was a reliable news source. I thought the US was right to invade Iraq. Yeah stupid me but I thought the misery endured by Iraqis under Saddam Hussein needed to end. Well I was wrong - wrong about 60 Minutes, wrong about the invasion and its purpose.

Fast forward to Hussein's weapons of mass destruction and how every media outlet glommed on to that unquestioningly, how Judith Miller at the NYT acted as the mouthpiece for those who pressed for war. I didn't buy into that but i did wonder at times if those who claimed this was baseless weren't taken in by the madman. Well we all now know the whole thing was hogwash.

The Military-Industrial Complex only has its own interests in mind and those interests are at odds with everyone who isn't part of it.

I don't know what Russia has but I do find it odd Putin releases this info now. I have wonder if he is trying to throw Trump a lifeline that is give Donnie a way to look tough with Russia. I find the timing strange. Just sayin.

Anyway everyone might want take a moment to listen to the advice of Pete Seeger, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee from 1963 to study war no more and talk to the Prince of Peace down by the riverside.

An amazing rendition
