Undergrowth, 1906/07. Henri-Edmond Cross.
“The Pope With Blood on His Hands” (By TERRY EAGLETON)
“Chanting “Death to America!” and burning effigies of President Bush and Saddam Hussein, tens of thousands of Iraqis flooded central Baghdad on Saturday in what police called the largest anti-American protest since the fall of Baghdad exactly two years ago.”
“Millions Said Going to Waste in Iraq Utilities” (Blame Macedonian occupation for that).
“In Many Turks’ Eyes, U.S. Remains the Enemy: Hostility Bodes Ill For Efforts to Boost Americans’ Image” (The founders of Al-Hurra TV just assumed that they speak Arabic in…Turkey. Sorry).
You can never say that the Washington Post does not report important international news.
Reforms in Saudi Arabia continue (according to Bush): “Saudis execute six men without sentence”
Long Live Poverty: “US will block Brown campaign to beat poverty”
“Behind an attack on Iraq’s infamous jail lies a simple, insistent demand: occupiers go home” (Don’t tell that to American patriots. They really are under the impression that US occupations are desirable and pleasurable worldwide).
Sometimes I feel that the only evidence of American leftism is the Leftist Studies section of Powell’s bookstore here in Portland.
