On Nine-Eleven 'O6

Check this out from Mark Weisbrot from the Center for Economic and Policy Research in London:
"To reduce the threat of real terrorism — which for Americans at home is still less than the threat of being struck by lightning — we will have to stop making so many enemies.
That means getting out of Iraq. And calling a halt to the threats of military action against Iran. And not torturing prisoners at Guantanamo or elsewhere. And using diplomacy, negotiations and international co-operation generally rather than relying on bullying and threats.
Most important, it means giving up on the project of America as an empire. This will also put an end to the phony "war on terror," the one that is little more than pretext for unnecessary wars such as the one that our government started in Iraq.In other words, the war on terror will be won at home, by changing our foreign policy. It may take some years to do so. But the alternative is an endless cycle in which our government's militarism generates more hatred and terrorist attacks, which then are used to justify further military actions — further eroding our civil liberties, living standards and the moral fabric of our society." So today let's try to remember the real history and lose the jingoism. Lord deliver us from the Wahabi SOB's who want to return us to the 15th century, and also from the GOP SOB's who have been using this as an excuse to sell out the country, dismantle the government, militarize society, curtail civil liberties, and turn the tax system upside-down, all in the name of their religion, which they have also pimped and perverted into a worship of the dollar and the gun.

What do you mean "real history?"
Does this have something to do with that "dumbnesia" you were talking about?

You're talking about dismantling a Republican program that could employ a million high school dropouts. You fight'em over there or you fight'em over here.

Hey, guys! I'm still enjoying your blog and your comments over at Capitol Annex!

I wanted to take a minute to invite you to a new group that the DNC has set up for Texas Bloggers (there's actually one in every state now) to network. I'm one of the moderators. Here's the link; hoppe to see you there!
