My God. It's Full Of Stars.

“CNN is one of the participants in the war. I have a fantasy where Ted Turner is elected president but refuses because he doesn’t want to give up power.” (Arthur C. Clarke)

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

WASHINGTON, Oct. 25 — In announcing sweeping new sanctions against an elite unit of the Revolutionary Guard Corps in Iran, Bush administration officials took pains to offer assurances on Thursday that at least for now, the United States is not going to war with Iran. “We do not believe that conflict is inevitable,” said R.

Guilty By Association?

24-Oct-07

There’s an interesting video blowing around the internets today of a protestor getting right in Condoleezza’s face, calling her a war criminal, complete with faux-bloodied hands…the interesting part though is that after the cops throw her out of the hearing room, they unleash on the Code Pink broads, who weren’t doing anything.

Do they cackle at soirées together over the irony of […]

There are two stories buried in today’s The Washington Post that are must-reading, though it’s not to say that the in-depth look at the Blackwater company isn’t probably a good idea too. Iraqis Decry U.S. Airstrike That Killed Civilians: The quotes are devastating, and the story highlights the notion that our presence there serves to […]
