La FÃƒÂªte villageoise, 1639. Claude GellÃƒÂ©e. (Click on picture to enlarge).
“We consider the root cause of the sexual assault problems at the Air Force Academy to be the failure of successive chains of command over the last 10 years to acknowledge the severity of the problem,” said the report by Pentagon Inspector General Joseph Schmitz.”
“U.S. military prosecutors alleged Monday that American soldiers shot to death two unarmed Iraqi men in their homes, then tried to cover up their crimes by claiming that the Iraqis had reached for guns.”
This is for American patriots only: “The flight attendant investigated and found out three soldiers would be boarding. They were flying home for a short leave and then were returning to Iraq. A heavy rainstorm had already delayed our takeoff three hours, and you’d think people would have been tired and grumpy. But no. When [...]
“Gen. Augusto Pinochet, the former Chilean dictator, received multimillion-dollar payments from the governments of several countries, including the United States, during his 25-year tenure as Chile’s ruler and military chief.”
Peace advocates versus Israeli soldiers.
“It was No. 2 of 100 recommended books for US commanders in Iraq. The list was compiled in a survey of officers by the Inside the Pentagon newsletter last month.”
Desperate to get US support for his political dynasty (given its unpopularity among the Egyptian people), Mubarak keeps trying to please Israel.

I get upset when I see this Iraqi puppet president dressed in the traditional Arab garb. Not that I do not like it. I own one like it, although I never wear it (and the brown cover is really good to protect you from cold weather although it looks thin. My father put it on [...]
I was so bad on Democracy Now (my apologies to the folks there). Read the rush transcript. I went to sleep at 1:00AM, and then was awakened at 5:00AM. I was so sleepy, that my eyes hurt. Read my very first sentence. It does not make sense. My syntax is similar to Bush’s. But I [...]
Musharraf: Iraq war has made world ‘less safe’.
“Prosecutors, soldiers describe how 2 U.S. servicemen casually executed 2 unarmed Iraqis.”
“The CIA’s tough task in recruiting spies.”
Broad Landscape, about 1862. Monet.
They “liberate” Iraqis, one-by-one.
Classical Zionism: “The Israel Defense Forces is investigating charges that troops who killed a wanted Islamic Jihad man in the West Bank over the weekend shot him to death while he was lying on the ground, wounded and unarmed.”
