"Pat Tillman was a perfect recruiting story for the U.S. military machine. A highly paid professional athlete forgoes millions of dollars to supposedly "fight for our freedom." My first reaction was hard to describe, but it was a combination of sadness and disgust. Sadness because deep inside I knew our post-9/11 country was being hijacked, and disgust because I wrongly believed Pat to be just another shallow flag waver for our dying empire. I’m not afraid to admit that I was wrong as I could be. (Others were also dead wrong about him. The cartoonist Ted Rall did a very inflammatory editorial cartoon about Pat that portrayed him as an "idiot" who joined the Army "to kill Arabs.") My subsequent reading and research about Pat and his death told me a much different story than my initial impressions about him. It also reminded me about not being hasty to reach conclusions."

"The study, conducted by the Congressional Budget Office, decided to follow the Korea model to calculate its expense. Since it's unclear for how long or under what conditions combat operations will ensue, the CBO projects both a combat and a non-combat presence. Both, however, are projected to require 55,000 U.S. troops in Iraq. The combat scenario entails one-time costs of $4 to $8 billion, with annual expenses of $25 billion, projected outward. Under the non-combat scenario, a $8 billion one-time cost -- mainly for the construction of additional "enduring" bases -- would be followed by annual costs of $10 billion or less."
The failure of Modi’s opponents is imminent in the election battle. He is known for reacting in a harsh manner verbally. In the interests of state’s development all the stakeholders should avoid politicizing personal matters and adopt a neutral approach. There are so many issues which can be taken up electorally. Modi has not fulfilled all his election promises. Poverty, health, education, infrastructure, transport, gender and other crucial factors can be whipped to oust Modi. The more the opposition tries to turn public against Modi over petty issues the better is his popularity ratings and electoral dividends.
Be aware of Canada's unscrupulous health care system and its illicit trade in body parts and how/why Canadian doctors may murder you to get them....
It seems the good doctor leads a double life that is in the public interest to know.

The history of the Dravidian movement (DK & DMK) speaks volume about its double standards. Their ideology is long dead and only opportunism is alive and kicking. Fortunately people ignore their hypocrisies and gave them electoral support. Otherwise no one will remember the Dravidian movement. To counter the hype creators, Tamil Nadu needs suitable political opponents. Otherwise they will be thriving on the dead issues of Aryans vs Dravidians, North Indian domination, Hindi etc. These issues should not be the masks for the Dravidian underperformance in the governance.

A funny thing is happening in Zimbabwean politics. The fiercest battle is no longer between the ruling Zanu PF and the opposition MDC. The MDC, notorious for playing to its hard anti-Mugabe base, has started reaching across the aisle, with its conciliatory stance on Amendment No 18 Bill and its new push for a diplomatic strategy toward Zanu the Zimbabwe situation.
It is high time for the promising young chief minister of Karnataka to call shots. Without breaking the coalition agreement he should transfer power to BJP and continue the alliance. Only this action can help him to grow politically. Otherwise he will be ruined by the petty actions and reactions of Deve Gowda.
Certainly nobody is allowed to hurt the religious feeling of others & nobody should be allowed. If anybody tries, he should be punished. But nobody should be allowed to take benefit by inciting the people for its selfish motives. Nobody should be allowed to make ill use of the religious feelings. Lord Rama can’t be limited to a political party because he is worshipped by most of the Indians. It is giving a wrong direction to the politics by polarization of votes on the basis of inciting the religious feelings of the people.

Captain May, the Internet intelligence writer, analyzes the taboo subject of Jewish ethnicity, and its impact upon our national policy. Is the term "anti-Semitism" about those who don't like the Jews -- or is it about those whom the Jews don't like?

Professor Richard Drake, Chair of History Department at University of Montana invited Professor Stephen Walt, co-author of "The Israel Lobby", to speak on the subject as part of the University President's Lecture Series. For that Professor Drake was severely attacked while Professor Walt endured the usual "anti-semitic, holocaust denier" etc. diatribe. Academic Freedom in America is in Peril. Won't you speak up?
The Alameda County Family Justice Center was using very phony statistics on it's web page. I believe, and make the case, that the stats were intended to mislead the public.

The truth is zionists like Greenspan have dragged the West into The Middle East Conflict on Israel’s side, on the back of a series of false flag terror attacks in the West blamed on ‘Muslim Terror’. Thats the truth. Thats why you don’t hear it.

Greenpeace hails decision as "major step forward"
There is not the slightest actual evidence that the Iranian nuclear program has anything to do with creating nuclear weapons  and even if it did have a weapons program it would pose no threat to the United States . Nevertheless, the United States has been constantly and deliberately misrepresenting these realities  in order to create the false impression that there is some valid reason for us to attack Iran.

The inter-Palestinian war of words and the mutual violations of the freedom of press and expression by the Hamas - led government of Ismael Haniyyeh in the Gaza Strip and the Fatah – led government of Salam Fayyad in the West Bank have presented Israel with its biggest propaganda prize that is overshadowing the violations of human rights committed by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT).
It is time for the U.S. Navy to close its Hawaii Range Complex, pack its bags, and ship out of the illegally occupied nation of Hawaii. I insist on protecting Hawaii from further harm and degradation caused in large part by the U.S. Military, which is the greatest polluter on earth. It is time for military clean up, NOT further build up.
