00 Don't Wake Up the Russian Bear. 19.10.14

The Bear doesn’t fancy being woken up from his hibernation…

00 Bob Englehart. Sharia Laws. 19.10.14

The US forces are making Afghanistan safe for Islamic law of the most retrograde variety (they do NOT represent mainstream Islam)… the American-backed junta there is as strident as ISIS is! What a luvverly thing “democracy” is, wot? Afghanistan was freer in 1965 and under the DRA, too… fancy that…

00 Rob Rogers. GOP Guide to Leadership. 19.10.14

Reagan and G W Bush used dictatorial ukases (“executive orders”) more often than B H Obama has… Obama’s the “threat to democracy!” I’ll check into Bedlam with Mr Scrooge…

00 Rob Rogers. NATO. He's Been Stuck Like That AInce the End of the Cold War. 19.10.14

NATO is as much of actual use as buggy whips in an age of automobiles. Yet, the USA wastes billions upon it for no good purpose… the GOP demands that we do so… Obama goes along, for if he doesn’t, the GOP in the Senate would filibuster him to death.

With all the vile Republican propaganda about “evil Muslims” and “Muslim terrorists”, here’s the truth. A kind Afghan villager brings American troops occupying his village a glass of tea as a sign of hospitality. Unlike American rightwing money-worship, most Afghans are taught to be generous to strangers and to share what they have. In fact, most of the countries excoriated by the likes of Rush Limboob, Sarah Palin, and the rest of the Fox News apparat have long histories of hospitality and of kindness to the stranger. Fancy that…
