Brand Obama

Sadly, facts have been anathema to the average American for as long as I’ve been alive. All that matters is that we’re allowed to believe “we’re number one.” No one can compete when it comes to self-delusion and belligerence, and our ignorance would be amusing were it not a threat to every life-form on the [...]

Obama the ChickenHawk

Obama — our “man of peace” and “Constitutional scholar” [aka our new decider-daddy] — has got his balls set on “winning in Afghanistan.” Then it’s on to Pakistan! And Iran! And North Korea! And Syria! And, what’s up with his Colin Powell Act? rb [from Ted Rall] “I’ve asked my national security team to…collect the [...]

The Only Brave Troop Is An AWOL Troop

It takes guts to do the right thing, especially after having taken great pride in doing the wrong thing…rb from Dahr Jamail: On May 1st at Fort Hood in central Texas, Specialist Victor Agosto wrote on a counseling statement, which is actually a punitive U.S. Army memo: “There is no way I will deploy to [...]

May God Forgive Us

Desertion is a moral imperative when continued service implicates a soldier in crimes against God and mankind. Indeed, there are times when desertion is a moral duty. Yes, American enlistees swear an oath in God’s Name. Then again, so do Mafiosi. Nobody outside of that criminal fraternity considers it improper for a Mafia foot soldier to renounce his oath.

Shmemorial Day

Though I lost heart, long ago, and now have absolutely no expectation that Americans will do anything significant to rein in the government, military, and corporations which intend to fully enslave all of humanity, occasionally I am still moved to comment on our disconnect. So-called [self-professed] “liberal” and “progressive” bloggers annoy me the most, for [...]

The Obama Deception

[heavily redacted] On the matter of Barack Obama’s ballyhooed “turnaround” on the torture prosecution issue: After his groveling trip on Monday to soothe the hurt feelings of the tender little babies at the CIA — who had been feeling unloved and uncherished since the tiniest ray of media light had shone briefly on their black [...]

How the Mighty Is Falling

It’s All Good:  Media Reports for Duty as Militarists Plan More Wars by Chris Floyd [Empire Burlesque] 15 Mar 2009 Surely there is no one who still needs to be apprised of the fact that the New York Times is one of the chief organs of the American Empire, operating in a semi-official fashion to [...]

They Hate Us for Our Freedom

…our freedom to treat them like shit. Who doubts but that this uber-macho asshole is coming home to a career in law enforcement. And he just might be single, ladies!  rb

Do Medics Have More Fun?

[Horrifying new details of our "conduct unbecoming," from the Neeley Report, via JD Tuccille] I talked about the detainee who came to Camp X-Ray wounded from a .50 caliber. His bicep had attached to his forearm due to the fact his arm was in the sling for so long. I escorted this detainee to medical [...]

Iraqis Must Take Responsibility! Israelis? Not So Much…

[Obama on Iraq]  Let me be clear. Ending this war is not going to be easy. We have to ensure that our interests in a stable Iraq are met and make sure that our troops are secure. [We Americans are so "exceptional" that, when Iraqis are willing to put our interests above their own, and [...]
