Gaza theory

I have a new theory. Israel and the US plan to eventually start a war in the middle east that will attack Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Hezballah, and any Arab nation not in our pocket, one large war. But the one item in the way is the palestinians living in Israel. Israel will always be vulnurable as long as Iran has friends living in Israel, and be able to attack israel. The Israeli strategy toward the Palestinians, particularly the Gazan's will be the same strategy in the US/Israeli lead war. Encircle, imprison, starve, attack. But that population in Gaza is like a trojan horse.

Bullshit of the day

One of my favorite political authors of late has an article about trade and i cant help but mention a line he quotes. The line was written by nicholas kristoff for the new york times. 

"But while it shocks Americans to hear it, the central challenge in the poorest countries is not that sweatshops exploit too many people, but that they don't exploit enough..."
 "Yet sweatshops are only a symptom of poverty, not a cause, and banning them closes off one route out of poverty..."
"When I defend sweatshops, people always ask me: But would you want to work in a sweatshop? No, of course not. But I would want even less to pull a rickshaw. In the hierarchy of jobs in poor countries, sweltering at a sewing machine isn't the bottom."

Wow. This is not made up. This goes in my hall of fame of stupid things to say. Also in that hall of fame.

Barbara Bush talking about Hurricane Katrina and all the people who fled their homes and were huddling in the super-dome, " they never had it so good,"

And lets not forget the ruling government of Sudan who bombed tribal villages to clear the land for oil drilling companies and tried to explain the high level of tribes fleeing their homes, when they said "No No No, they are not fleeing bombs, they are nomads, who naturally move around" 
Sure they are.

And most recently when George W Bush was asked about regrets during his administration, and he mentioned the Iraq war and how he regretted that they didn't find weapons of mass destruction. NO regrets about all the destruction they caused to a nation that never threatened nor attacked us. No regret about all the US soldiers dead and wounded for basically no real reason. No regrets about lying to get us into the war. He just regretted that they didn't find the things that didn't exist, that would have made his fabrications true. Ya mean we couldn't find those things we made up? shoot.

A great day for Iraq a few weeks ago the Iraq forces took over in patrolling the green zone, from the US military. Meaning the US military has no right to arrest or shoot anyone in the Green Zone, its all on the Iraqi's.

But of course the US could not sit still. is reporting that hours after the agreement was signed the US military shot a women who would not stop when they told her too. So she must have been Bin Laden's right hand women right? Well actually she was deaf.
