    lucid take on the euro-us thing, Scarecrow.

    major civilizations would all have attempted to become kleptocracies if they could have and some were more successful than others (e.g., Assyria).

    the big difference between earlier empires and the present euro-us thing is that the financial sector is globally networked with high-speed computers.

    once the global financial system was wired (late 90s?), it was just a matter of time until the gold sacks cashed in all the chips.

    whether or not the us will be able to completely rob the eu during the present Age of the Great Swindle is a sobering matter of certain interest.

    The White House does not seem to be able to conceive of actual governance as a viable option

    thanks, Jane, for your accurate diagnosis of the state of the nation:

    lawless chicanery

  • sounds to me like this ironic awareness of issues surrounding the “governance” of illegal drone warfare smacks of a negative therapeutic reaction to the very use of the technology itself.

    thanks, WeatherDem, for taking a factually based stand in this Reality/Information War. when it came out in 2007, the IPCC (AR4) assessment was conclusive regarding anthropogenic forcing due to GHG emissions, i.e., CO2 and CH4 (as the graphs you pulled clearly indicate). one of the aspects that is particularly difficult to encapsulate in regards to [...]

    correct: the most compelling piece of evidence that the WTC towers were rigged with explosives is the fact that the buildings fell from start to finish in about ten (10) seconds. do the calculation for yourself: t = sqrt(2(height)/g)~sqrt(2(420m)/(10m/s2))=sqrt(820m/10m/s2)=sqrt(82)s~ 9 seconds. the buildings fell at the same rate as a stone falling unimpeded from about [...]

  • thanks for the carefully presented details of this pBS sludge.

    anyone who has been watching the descending arc of pBS wouldn’t be surprised with this pseudo-journalistic tripe.

    wikileaks scares the crap out of the MSM and the US government.

    Chalmers Johnson was right

    Pakistan suicide bomb kills 80 as Taliban seeks revenge for Bin Laden

    “US officials are hoping to leverage outrage over Bin Laden to gain concessions from the Pakistani army. They want the military to push into Waziristan, to sever relations with militant groups such as the Haqqani network, and to arrest high-level fugitives thought to be still inside Pakistan, mostly notably Bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and the Taliban leader, Mullah Omar.”

    wonder if this new found sensitivity is related to this article appearing in today’s NYT:

    U.S. Interrogated ‘Hostile’ Bin Laden Wives

    “The women, however, if they chose to, could presumably help answer questions about who knew that Al Qaeda’s leader was hiding in a town filled with current and former members of Pakistan’s military.”

    you think that if it was information that they were after they would have kept OBL alive.

    i remember that the first reports coming out about the daughter were saying that OBL was taken into custody and then executed.

    seems to me that the thing that they have been most interested in from the beginning is controlling the narrative.

    too bad for them their story has been leaking like cloth diapers.

    “the whole operation was filmed on 25 cameras mounted on the helmets of the Navy Seals”

    i sure have an innate trust for photographic evidence coming from the dod and the wh

    my initial take on the OBL thing was that it had something to do with Wikileaks.

    now i’m inclined to think that it has something to do with the Arab Spring, especially in its relation to the PetraeusPanetta high level switcheroo (28 April 2011), which happned two or three days before the OBL is dead festival (1 May 2011).

    Panetta (head of cia) was really outspoken immediately after the American jihad and even stated that the us would definitely release the photos of the assassination. wonder what that was all about.

    i think that it’s telling that the story began unraveling immediately after it was released.

    and now with this Wikileaks-like dribbling of info obviously intended to disparage OBL and pump up the propaganda machine. . .

    still not sure what this is all about.

    some thought provoking comments on the pentagon-released video.

    one thing about the video that i thought was odd was how come the camera person keeps focusing on the wall missing the plaster.

    this video could have been made yesterday for all i know.

    bottom-line: most likely just more crap from the pentagoons

    i agree with human @48: This OBL charade is a purposeful major distraction.

    when I tried to find out what may have been the information that we were to be distracted from I zeroed in on Julian Assange’s interview on Russia Today which ironically had a ticket-tape below the interview that was continuously ranting on about the assassination of OBL.

    The last minute of the interview is superb.

    from reading the comments to this post, it’s very clear that none of us knows what actually happened.

    all we seem to know are the specific narratives that each of has concoted with or without being abetted by government fabrications.

    is OBL really dead?
    is he still alive and being tortured?
    did he die a long time ago, and this whole thing is sheer fabrication?

    we don’t know because we don’t have any verifiable evidence.

    the only thing that we can safely assume with some confidence is that the government is lying.

    again.
