Uzbekistan: a model country for US foreign policy goals: why cannot all brutal dictatorships around the world be like Uzbekistan? Yes, it is unjust and torture is widespread, but the government is subservient to US foreign policy, and hosts US troops. The march of freedom continues.
Another justification for the war in Iraq (as the search for WMDs continue): Saddam is not only linked to Bin Laden, but he is now being linked to Michael Jackson. That is right. Michael Jackson. Apprently, Michael Jackson had some of his plastic surgery done in hospitals in Baghdad. Support for the Iraq war surges [...]
For those of you deceived by Dennis Kucinich: he has the political courage of all other members of Congress: he makes some critical remarks about the war in Afghanistan, and then calls back to withdraw his remarks. He, after all, VOTED for Bush’s war in Afghanistan, not to mention his long love affair–maybe a crush–with [...]
Israel admits lying over one raid; other lies over other raids will not be admitted, however.

Animal rights groups are fighting Muslims with..pork meat: groups fed pork meat to sheep destined for the Middle East: as a vegetarian, I feel safe.
Some Hindu groups want to fight Muslims with…Procreation: procreators of the world, unite.
The New York Times worries (and rightly so) about anti-Semitism in Europe (which it often equates with anti-Zionism–see a piece last Tuesday in that paper); yet, it never cares about growing evidence of anti-Islamism. But to be fair to the paper, it does not believe that Muslims or Arabs are equal to other human beings.
I am doomed to poverty: belief in heaven and hell is good for economic growth, says this piece of “research”
