My, my. That's really going to dumbfound the right wingers I know here that thought this was their beloved war of US Imperialism Rampant in the service of Christ. They're going to lose brownie points with God Almighty...what...we're really not "number One"? That's gotta hurt....they were promised a global Pax Americana, and the second coming. Instead, they're facing ID cards qualifying them to all be Mexamericanadians now, and the sweet taste of 'victory' turned to ash.
I read also today that the French will lead NATO into Lebanon....I can sense right wing republicans nation wide wrapping their lips around the barrels of their Glocks over that one....
Well, I tried to warn them. The truth is stranger than fiction. They got "X"d. Just another bunch of patsies who will find their opinions don't matter. Suckers.

And the really sick thing is: I think a lot of the lefties will percieve these changes as a victory for 'peace'! All hail NATO! All hail the United Nations! Meanwhile, the Muslim culture will remain under the gun.

Rude awakening when this group and that are used for a while for a purpose, only to find they were exploited for their stupidity, and we're all just bozos on this bus.

NATO handled things during the 'kinder, gentler' Clinton 90's--with Kosovo, Waco, and 'soft' death for 'them, someplace else' while the trickle down taps were artificially turned on by Norman Greenspan, Goth and high tech stock bubbles. Looks like transition time to that arrangement again.
Um...except no trickle down this time. And with the difference that the 'neocon' illusion and all the political slapstick of the Bush years have left the US disillusioned, confused, bankrupt, the world hates it....and quite meaningless. The new scenery for evaporation into forgotten history when the borders meld in 2010.

Yup - they got something for everybody - just like a heavily-militarised Santa.

That's why you gotta love'em.

crooks and liars audio of Limbaugh

As long as the barbarians can convince us that some people are less than others the police action will continue.

Here's Rockwell's comment on the astonishing Hariri development:
Quote:
Good for the UN Investigators
Posted by Lew Rockwell at March 28, 2008 11:40 AM

Sometimes, the UN does not do the bidding of the US, and here it exonerates Syria of the murder of Hariri, despite hysterical pressure. No wonder McCain wants to replace the UN with a 100% neocon "League of Democracies." Syria, according to the US and Israel, must be destroyed, and the Hariri charge was part of that campaign.

Criminals' killed ex-Lebanese PM
Former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri was assassinated by a criminal
network that is linked to other terrorist attacks in Lebanon, the UN's chief
investigator has said.

In his first report to the UN Security Council, Daniel Bellemare said the
"Hariri Network" was responsible for the attack. He did not identify any
members of the network.

The investigator said the criminal network existed before the PM's
assassination, that it conducted surveillance of the former premier, and
that at least part of the network continued to operate after he was killed
along with 22 others in a bombing in Beirut in February 2005.

"Criminal network" assassinated Rafiq Hariri: UN

A "criminal network" of individuals acted together to carry out the 2005
murder of Lebanese ex-premier Rafiq Hariri, the new head of a U.N.
commission said Friday, without naming any suspects.

The commission, set up to investigate the Hariri assassination and related
cases, said in the 10th interim report on the case that it could now confirm
that "on the basis of available evidence... a network of individuals acted in
concert to carry out the assassination."

The report added that this "criminal network" or parts of it were also linked
to other attacks against anti-Syrian Lebanese figures perpetrated between
October 2004 and December 2005.

"The commission's priority is now to gather more evidence about the Hariri
network, its scope, the identity of all its participants, their links with others
outside the network and their role in other attacks that have been found to
be linked," said the report, released simultaneously here and in Beirut.

It made clear that for reasons of confidentiality, the panel would not
disclose any names.

"Names of individuals will only appear in future indictments filed by the
prosecutor, where there is sufficient evidence to do so," it added.

Investigation

The report is the first by Canadian former prosecutor Daniel Bellemare
since he was appointed last November to succeed Belgian Serge
Brammertz at the helm of the U.N. panel.

Sticking to the cautious stance adopted by his predecessor, Bellemare
stressed that the investigation "must continue to be guided solely by the
facts and by the evidence."

"Its conclusions cannot rely on rumors or assumption. They must be
supported by reliable evidence that will be admissible before a tribunal,"
the report said.

Brammertz' German predecessor Detlev Mehlis had implicated senior
officials from Syria, which for three decades was the power broker in its
smaller neighbor. But Damascus has strongly denied any connection with
Hariri's death.

In his interim report released last July, Brammertz said his investigators
had identified several people who may have been involved in the
assassination.

Turning to Syria's cooperation with the U.N. probe, the Bellamare-led
panel said it "continues to be generally satisfactory."

"The commission will continue to request Syria's full cooperation in the
discharge of its mandate," it said.

Political crisis

In addition to the Hariri case, the U.N. panel has been mandated to help
Lebanese authorities probe 20 attacks against anti-Syrian targets in
Lebanon.

These include one last January which killed Lebanon's top anti-terrorism
investigator and three other people in Beirut.

Hariri, a popular five-time prime minister, was killed along with 22 others
in a massive explosion on the Beirut seafront on February 14, 2005.

The attack, which rocked Lebanon to the core, was one of the worst acts of
political violence to rock the battered country since the 1975-1990 civil
war.

A political crisis that has roiled the country since is widely seen as an
extension of the regional confrontation pitting the United States and its ally
Saudi Arabia against Iran and Syria.

Meanwhile U.N. officials said Thursday that the U.N.-backed special tribunal
tasked with trying suspects in the Hariri case has enough funding to keep
running for a year.

U.N. member states have pledged more than 60 million dollars -- including
34 million already deposited -- for the tribunal, which is to be based in a
former Dutch intelligence headquarters in the suburbs of The Hague.

The court will include a trial chamber made up of three judges -- two
foreigners and one Lebanese -- and an appeals chamber of five judges --
two Lebanese and three foreigners.

U.N. officials said the judges have been selected, but their identity could
not be disclosed for security reasons.

Hezbollah on trial for Hariri killing, but what was its motive?
Former Lebanon Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was a pragmatist who had been
holding secret weekly meetings with Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah in
the months leading up to his assassination.

By Nicholas Blanford, Correspondent / January 16, 2014

BEIRUT, LEBANON Prosecutors today laid out what they say is a detailed, solid case against four members of Hezbollah charged with the 2005 assassination of a former Lebanese prime minister. But their investigation has glossed over a critical point: Hezbollah did not seem to have sufficient autonomy, or even motivation, to kill Rafik Hariri.

Hurrah for the CS Monitor - which today takes a solo run at the truth.
yahoo
Worth a read for the actual propaganda-free journalism.

Actual journalism. Refreshing.
And a waste of time. This is old shit.
Nobody cares. Well, maybe you care,
I care and a few guys at the CS Monitor care....

Actual journalism. They'll have museum displays of it one day.
And nobody will visit.

Truth has been in short supply in the Hariri case.
Here's some truth:
