The fault, however, lies not in Republicans’ stars but in themselves. Forty years ago the G.O.P. decided, in effect, to make itself the party of racial backlash. And everything that has happened in recent years, from the choice of Mr. Bush as the party’s champion, to the Bush administration’s pervasive incompetence, to the party’s shrinking base, is a consequence of that decision.
The purpose of the ICTI would be to investigate and prosecute Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the Peoples of Lebanon and Palestine--just as the ICTY did for the victims of international crimes committed by Serbia and the Milosevic Regime throughout the Balkans.
The establishment of ICTI would provide some small degree of justice to the victims of Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the Peoples of Lebanon and Palestine--just as the ICTY has done in the Balkans. Furthermore, the establishment of ICTI by the U.N. General Assembly would serve as a deterrent effect upon Israeli leaders such as Prime Minister Olmert, Foreign Minister Livni, Defense Minister Barak , Chief of Staff Ashkenazi and Israel's other top generals that they will be prosecuted for their further infliction of international crimes upon the Lebanese and the Palestinians.
Bush told the world that he wanted to see Peace in the Middle-East before he left office; and now we see exactly what he meant by this bit of Newspeak that is his version of Orwell's "War is Peace."
The fact that Obama will only intensify these kinds of crimes as are being committed by Israel as this is written does not bode well for either Peace or for stability in coming years.
Who will weep for our lost Nation? How many citizens will cry in anguish for our republic, devastated and destroyed by an elite group of insiders who, bit by bit, through stealth, lies, deceit, chicanery, and outright criminal fraud have wrecked Constitutional havoc. Checks and balances are gone. Congress is bought and sold by corporate lobbyists. Congress no longer works for us. The judiciary, packed with neocons, then shoves new "legal interpretations" down our own throats or disregards time-honored ones. Our country is no longer "we, the people." Now, it is "we, the corporations." Is this not fascism?
Aided and abetted by a corporate-controlled media, American sheople have bought into the Electronic Age's Orwellian doublethink and doublespeak. It was all planned.
Unfortunately, the only person who may have been able to verify that the voting machines in major states were rigged, Michael Connell, is now dead due to a mysterious airplane "accident".
Nothing changes. Nothing will change...until we remove the ruling class...by force. We must remove them and everyone related to them. They have been a cancer to our planet and they must be treated like cancer. Eliminate them and eliminate any chance of their next generation coming back to start again.
At least Dick Cheney, as wrong a guy as we've ever had this close to the presidency, goes out in character, thinking that he and George W. Bush were right about everything. The problem is that Cheney's character now sounds as weird and unhinged as Jack Nicholson's in "A Few Good Men."
