“We Don’t Haveta Splain Ourselves Ta Youse”

The president never ceases to amaze does he? He has all manner of chutzpah to deliver. Unscripted, we find his true self exposed. While everyone else is sidetracked by the outcome of the Iowa Caucuses, you may have missed the following quote:
Our beef is not with the Iranian people. Our beef is with […]

Musharraf and Bush: Two of a Kind

Suppose it’s shortly before the 2004 election. Presidential hopeful John Kerry is leaving a campaign appearance in Amarillo, TX where there’s a large crowd eager to see him. His limo stops on the airport tarmac and he steps out for a little glad-handing along the police line.
The Secret Service doesn’t pre-screen his crowds as it […]

Bhutto and the Creationists of Democracy

Unlike Pakistan, American’s live in a culture where political assassinatio ns - at least the violent kind - are mercifully rare. We can usually depend on an orderly transfer of our ever-lengthe ning national to-do list from one nitwit to another every few years without bloodshed. But as Benazir Bhutto’s assassinatio n shows, trying to […]

Purge the Surge

The SurgeTM is slowly floating to the top of Mesopotamian muck. WH Spokesbabe Dana Perino is full of bubbly praise, crediting it with spectacular success in bringing down the death and dismembermen t rate. It’s true casualties are mercifully down around Baghdad - and I’m glad for it - but, at what cost?
The number of […]

Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence

Kerr said this as the keynote speaker at GEOINT 2007 (the US Geospatial Intelligence Foundation symposium). Unfortunatel y, his comments revealed the only geospace surrounding […]

Going to hell in a handbasket–Musharraf style

The newest country to impose martial law is Pakistan. Following a fine tradition started eons ago, General Perez Musharraf has used the time-honored excuse that the citizens of Pakistan need protecting from themselves. I think the timing is suspect, based on the fact that this week the Supreme Court of Pakistan was going to hand […]

Burma, some basics..

I have been watching the unrest in Burma..also known as Myanmar, for almost two weeks now. I have seen things I never thought I would see happening in living color. I watched the murder of a Japanese journalist named Kenji Nagai who was holding nothing but a video camera when a Burmese soldier gunned him […]

Blackwater Takes to the Waves

The French Foreign Legion doesn’t have a thing on those Blackwater BoysTM. They’re in the enviable position of being war profiteers whose business model is, well, to directly fight actual wars. You know, cut out the middle man contractors like Boeing and Lockheed and go straight to the heart of the business.
Sure, their employees have […]

Our National Embarrassment

Would someone please tell the Malaprop-in- Chief to keep his crapulent pie hole shut when he’s on trips abroad? Or better yet, just keep him home.
Mush Mouth’s gaffes are legendary at home, but particularly embarrassing on trips abroad. How can we forget such golden oldies as insulting the Queen of England, mispronounci ng foreign leaders’ […]
