Watching the Skys, Nets

Let’s not add to the rolling snowball of self-perpetuated insanity that has most recently gathered a hefty layer from The Decider’s proclaimations of sanction ag’in Shi’ite Persia.

Let’s instead look at what, perhaps, They™ would use such sabre-rattling clamor to obfuscate. Reports of true Kafkaesquisity in the ever-growing beurokrautik
double-blind farce of the WatchList, which a SlashDot post posits is most probably fueled by datamining. With recent NSA and telecom collusion coming into fine focus, one might argue that this is not so much a lame-duck Presidency as an infant totalitarian dictatorship we here in the US of A have allowed to bloom.

Not this Candidate.

Personally, i’ve always thought that the NSA had best be wiretapping and the FBI watchlisting and the CIA renditioning and such. I just would have thought these agencies more targetted and adroit at thier game, like they were during the CoIntelPro days. These days their nets are too big, too broad and ill-suited to the tasks. They aren’t going to catch any fishies like this, all they’re going to do is piss good people off. Or scare them.

This doesn’t make it any more palattable. It just makes us a bigger target, which we didn’t need help with. We’ve been, as the Latin Americans who survived our decades of death squads and dictators say, “pinche hue Gringos.” What’s the gain in this game Cheney and Company are running?

Follow the money. The “left” press is almost there; watch them pull back from it like a slug from salt. It’s right under your noses when you sniff at Fox news. It’s why we fight in Afganistan, Iraq, and every other Eastern Hemisphere theatre, it’s why you were so confused about the voracity with which the shut-down of Lyndon LaRouche was effected.

If you say “oil” i swear to Maa i’ll fucking reach through the tubes and smack your dumb asses. I done tol’ allz’y’all prior that the USA is not going to get oil from Iraq. That much is obvious, or should be, to anyone with access to the internet who cares enough to look into who owns the damn pipelines. However, follow those pipelines and they’ll lead you home.

If you care.

If not, look up. There’s a new star in the North Eastern skies.

Wardrums and Doldrums

One would think that the assasination of a model collaborator would teach the Hawks something about the difference between a winning strategy and the type of half-assed muddle the US is waging against the people of Iraq.
If one assumed that they cared.
Hawks never care. Inside every Hawk is a sociopathic disconnect, more of a short-circuit than a soul, that clings onto visions of glory and military victory as justification for murder. The facts of any given situation are neatly rounded into a cop-drama script fo them, and carpet-bombing and torture are then easily seen as reasonable approaches to the issue. They never take the human factor seriously, and thus fail to notice when the boys they sent out to kill strangers start losing faith in the good fight.

“Dick Dick Dick Dick Dick Dick…”

I couldn’t embed this freshly Opened Source here, so i made a page for anyone interested in watching Frontline’s report on 3 decades of Dick Cheney’s good woks.

“For three decades Vice President Dick Cheney conducted a secretive, behind-closed-doors campaign to give the president virtually unlimited wartime power. Finally, in the aftermath of 9/11, the Justice Department and the White House made a number of controversial legal decisions. Orchestrated by Cheney and his lawyer David Addington, the department interpreted executive power in an expansive and extraordinary way, granting President George W. Bush the power to detain, interrogate, torture, wiretap and spy — without congressional approval or judicial review.” Read more »
