Juan Cole on Cheney’s Mission – Accomplished

Cheney’s Mission Accomplished

By Juan Cole

Cheney avoids mentioning all the human suffering he has caused, on a cosmic scale, and focuses on procedural matters like elections (which he confuses with democracy– given 2000 in this country, you can understand why).

Juan Cole on phoney bin Laden hunt

George's book is upside down

US Bin-Ladin Hunt Phoney

translates an article from the Persian Afghan press alleging that French troops

expansionism.

More -isms of the Pluto-Chiron variety…militarism, expansionism, then there’s imperialism, and…Zionism.

Photo: G. W. Bush on the morning of 9.11.01 holding ‘My Pet Goat’ upside down (is book choice a shout-out to the Goat of Mendes? or a mere coincidence? But wait! Goats climb mountains, bin Laden escaped to the mountains…is Dubya tryin’ to artfully tell us something? Nah.)

However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are.
