A memorandum or a treaty?

This NPR report about Bush's latest tactic with Iraq is scary, and my reaction is, of course, No Fuckin' Way!

Ping pong

Okay, so the press is playing up the spats between Obama's camp and the Clintons' (note the plural). And it looks like Hillary is leaving the South Carolina primary to Obama and jumping ahead to the super Tuesday elections in the big states like California, New York, Florida.

Her idea, of course, is that once she loses South Carolina to Obama (apparently, Edwards is well behind), she can explain the loss as race-based, because of the many black Democratic voters. That, she figures, will scare white Democrats to think in racial terms about Obama--more than they have heretofore--and drive them into her camp.

How to counter this tactic, because we can count on the MSM to exploit it? I dunno, do you?

Just so you know

The billions of dollars spent on the "war on terr'r" are escalating wildly, and are ruining the US economy, just as bin Laden sought.

Meanwhile, in Afghanistan

the battle with the Taliban is "just beginning."

Readers of Nineteen Eighty-four will recognize the state of "perpetual war" that bound the citizens to the leader by fear and a seige mentality, just the way Cheney and the Neo-cons want it.
