“You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests… This is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. It’s really 19th century behavior in the 21st century.” –some American clown
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Jesus, America. Really? Obviously,
The Clown The Pustule on the crack of the ass known as America had his fingers crossed behind his back or he would have choked to death on his own bile.
Thanks to salon.com, that traitorous blog, for stating the obvious.

Not satisfied with its earlier February non-warning about deadly, exploding toothpaste, as well as their inability to find any of said deadly, exploding toothpaste, Der Homeland Stasi now has come up with
a new threat an old threat re-visited. That’s right, komrads of Der Homeland. It’s shoes. Bombs in shoes. Exploding shoes. Breast implants. Buttock implants. Breast milk. You dirty komrads are exceeding the bounds of believability.
Danger Will Robinson.
American foreign policy – the country has a foreign policy, right? – triumphs yet again.

Thanks to the BBC for the informed comment.
As well, a view from Canada.
What goes around, comes around, and will bite you in the ass more often than not:
Awkward attempts to question “morality” in such revelations sound especially hypocritical from a global spying power that monitors and controls most of the mobile phone and internet users activities, taps the phone lines of world leaders, and oversees the world’s most far-reaching wire-tapping program. –globalresearch.ca
What’s stopping Obama from launching the drone strike? He’s never been averse to killing a U.S. child on foreign soil, or the child’s father. I’m surprised that he’s even hesitating.
Better yet, bring the guy home and kill him on U.S. soil by means of a drone strike. That would put to rest any semblance of recognizing that the country has a Constitution, to be sure. And that killer Obama is a Constitutional lawyer. Jesus, but does it never end for a country that has become no better in some ways than a third world dictatorship?
Apparently, it’s quite “controversial.”
“The homeland”, whatever the fuck that is, is safe for now. You all can keep on keeping on brushing your tooth.
“We are not aware of a specific [toothpaste] threat to the homeland at this time [but we keep on keeping up hope],” Der Homeland Stasi said. “This routine communication is an important part of our commitment to making sure we meet that priority.” –Der Homeland Stasi, otherwise known as
Der Homelant St, err, The Department of Homeland Security, or some shit like that.
Shouldn’t “the H” be capitalized, as in The Homeland? How remiss of The Stasi not to get it right. Will someone please find a literate Republican to form a Congressional committee to investigate this transgression? kthx
As of this moment, there is no word on any recent mall or school shootings, but I’m certain that will change imminently.
For a man born and educated in Canada, the ignoramus Neil Young has learned absolutely nothing, other than how to promote himself as an aging rocker with naught to do but spout bullshit in order to revive a sagging career. Of course, he hasn’t lived in Canada for forty years or more, so it’s no surprise that he doesn’t know shit about Shinola.
I can’t go into a bunch of detail. -Neil Young
I think that pretty much sums up his knowledge of Canada and Canadians.
Thank Christ he wasn’t born here. Oh, wait, he was. How mortifying that Neil Young could be so ignorant of his own country.
Young Neil, go back to California and burn your middle-east oil. It’s great to know that your chosen country’s 9/11 Saudi Arabian butchers have your complete and undying support. Why not use some of your idle-no-more time to write a song about your support for your murderous heroes?
Night Witches, indeed.
They flew low-and-slow in their wood and fabric biplanes during the dark of night with only basic instrumentation. The instrument panel had airspeed, altimeter, compass and turn-and-bank indicators. Add in a timepiece and it’s called “dead reckoning” for a reason, particularly in the middle of the night.
Some of them flew eighteen missions a night. By the end of the war, each and every one of them left alive had flown 1,000 or more missions. If you don’t know what that entails, read the article.
“We simply couldn’t grasp that the Soviet airmen that caused us the greatest trouble were in fact women. These women feared nothing. They came night after night in their very slow biplanes, and for some periods they wouldn’t give us any sleep at all.” –Hauptmann Johannes Steinhoff, Commander of II/JG 52, Oak Leaves to the Knight’s Cross, September 1942.
They were the women of the Russian 588th Night Bomber Regiment. You can read more about the bravery of these women and how they operated and survived at The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: Earth Addition.
