How long can Bush get away with lies?
You can still get away with the "big lie" as long as Karl Rove and his team of spinners keep providing persuasive rationalizations. The American public is still supine, uneasy about the war, but not willing yet to turn decisively against it. Will that still be the case next year when we "celebrate" the third anniversary of the war? Is the patience of the American people that long suffering? Is there no outrage left in the country?

Who convinced the president that our democracy depends on a worldwide crusade?
Giddy with excitement, the neocons are falling all over one another to hail the president. They are not conservatives at all. They are anti-conservatives, and their crusade for democracy will end as did Wilson’s, in disillusionment for the president and tragedy for this country.

Putin loses his smile after lecture from Bush on democracy
"Democracies always reflect a country's customs and culture, and I know that," Mr Bush said. "Yet democracies have certain things in common; they have a rule of law, and protection of minorities, a free press, and a viable political opposition."

... with US troops in Iraq between Iran and Israel, and with Russian assets purportedly on the ground in Iran, an Israeli strike seems intended not so much to destroy a power generating station as to throw the US and Russia into a war with each other.

Iran has dismissed Israeli allegations that it is close to developing a nuclear weapon, saying the accusations are designed to shift attention away from Israel's own large non-conventional arsenal and its "terror" against Palestinians.
Israel itself has never publicly acknowledged that it has any nuclear weapons but foreign experts say it has used a reactor at Dimona in the southern Negev desert to produce between 100 and 200 warheads.

Iran is way different than Iraq
The Bush administration is making the same mistakes with Iran that it made with Iraq. It makes allegations unsupported by facts, refuses to negotiate and threatens sanctions or military action, neither of which is feasible. In short, it has no rational Iran policy.

US Military, President Out of Control -- What Does "Mildly Radioactive" Mean, Anyway?
Delicate lung cells of 19 year old American troopers and 60-year-old Iraqi “guerrillas” don't have the ability to "spin" what is turning them into infection, pus and cancer.

Armed Rebels Blocked the Main Road, Connecting Baghdad to Southern Regions of Iraq

A roadside bomb blast killed three U.S. soldiers and wounded eight others north of Iraq's capital Friday, the military said.
At least 1,489 members of the U.S. military had died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.

US Will Arm Militants To Rebel Against Elected Shi`ite leadership

Democratic Terrorists?
MSNBC, without so much as a second of shame for the lies they told to start a war in Iraq, start whipping up the frenzy to send your kids off to Lebanon.

The Media
There is a structural relationship between media and state power. They are closely linked. Who are the media? Not just in the United States, but around the world, they're a handful of corporations that dominate what people see, hear, and read. They have been able to manufacture consent, particularly in the United States, for imperialist wars of aggression.

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
