Coffee Table

Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."Hermann Goering at the Nuremburg Trials 1946

Talk about whatever you want..put your blog skills to use.

YES!

It's about time they gave them what they gave out -- it's all too sad what they did (excuse me, "allegedly" did).

Ron, this looks to be a good link to bookmark, keep, and check here and there: The Senlis Council.
They released a publication today on Afghanistan Five Years Later - The Return of the Taliban (I'm sure you've seen about it in the news today). The news is very disappointing.

I don't think giving the death penalty to them if they are convicted is going to do any good for anyone and would only cause more divisions and resentment everywhere.

On a maybe related matter: Perhaps
the best way to view the various
criminals, legal and not, of whatever nation or group would be the mafia/organized crime families.
They may be of different nationalities and backgrounds but they are in similar pursuits and interests: weapons trade, drugs, murder and mayhem. They all seek power and wealth. They fight among themselves but will help each other if it is beneficial to their "cause" and will let others do criminal acts against supposedly their own groups if they feel they can benefit from that too. They try to put a glorious image on themselves and see legal institutions as something to rob and control for their own advantage. Lastly, there are no morals or honor among thieves.

Bush Mafia Family represented by the W figurehead vs. bin Laden Mafia Family represented by Osama.
Both Families represented by and represent Big Oil, Militarism and getting others to fight for them.

Despite all of the spin and Appearances to the contrary
(Masks) that's what they really are

I think some latitude has to be given in a time of war but we must make sure that this type of thing does not spread as common practice in our military. To be looked at as a leader we need to set the bar high. Too many neo cons would like to lower it to our enemies level, hence they are no better than the slime they fight. I think if found guilty these guys should get mandatory permanent citizenship in Iraq.

Trust me, Bush says

I mentioned in another thread that I thought the neocon agenda was something much darker & more sinister than what the rhetoric & propaganda says.

Could be.

I should have left for Roswell this morning, but it appears to be raining everywhere, which is hard on my truck.

Thanks for the "welcome back," Dedanna, but I won't be posting much as I do not have a computer in Roswell, and have been too busy painting and such to use it in Northwood. Iowa may have gone for Bush in 2004 (barely), but at least I moved to a county (Worth) that went for Kerry.

Someone from New Zealand did a great posting on the Daily Kos correcting by video the misleading segments on the "Path to 9/11" broadcast last night. I recommend you all check it out.

The WTC was attacked what?? 37 days after Clinton was sworn in in 2001, yet he did not blame Bush, Sr. for it, and the perpetrators were all caught and are in prison.

What a difference between that response and Bush's response to the attack on his watch.

Ron, I noticed that your pics at this site are clickable, but they only direct to where the image is on the server.

If you'd like, I can send you the html to have the images be clickable, and when clicked, they go to a page (url).

Let me know if you'd like to do this.

Dedanna. I just look to google images to find what I am after. Much of the time the page they come from has nothing to do with the topic or anything worth mentioning for that matter.

Maybe there is some hope for Roswell. Saw a car with a bumper sticker "Blessed Be". And another sticker listing Isis, Demeter, etc.
In radical christian fundamentalist
Roswell that is something! And even if the local "rcf" are in the minority (?) very few stand up to them, so they can act as if they are in control. The notion that Santa Fe is an equal opposite is just not true. There is plenty of diversity in Santa Fe and open opposition to the "Santa Fe way". But in Roswell and S.E. N.M., no.
Sort of like the myth of the liberal media being in control.

You'd be surprised. People who are not Christian fundies in NM are few, but more than you think.

Dedanna, if you are still checking this thread, how do you get the
blue-highlighted,underlined
words. I read about it, tried it somewhere else and it didn't work.
I am familiar with the Internet,
(old) Word and the customized programs we had at school and the State, but not this. I also learned somethings that I never use. I have a friend who is a
computer engineer and he says -
"Use UNIX". To the Learning about
computers there is no end!

Thanks,

By the way, Larry, kudos to your engineering friend. I use Linux (sort of a "take off" if you will, of Unix). Once on it and familiar with Open Source, you'll never go back. Try it sometime. There are many distributions of Linux that come on live cds so you can run it and try it out right off of cd without affecting your system.

I use Mandriva 2006 December Club Edition -- here's a live cd of Mandriva to try. Yep, I like it so much that I pay for the club edition ($12 every month, VERY well worth it), so that I can download what version I want when I want.

Here is a more multimedia-oriented distribution of Linux (live and install cd both) that I'm looking forward to trying out when I get time.

Suse was my first Linux distro.

Warning: If you download and decide to try out one of these live cds, do not download an alpha or beta version of any distribution until you're familiar with Linux. Get the stable version.

Now, it's funny your friend says to use Unix -- there is one drawback since I went Linux, that being that I haven't been able (for still unknown reasons, after two years of Linux) to upload a web page correctly. They all come out like this, displaying nothing but code for the page, and no page. Sigh. :(
