In The News:
Thanks to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the commentary and news audio files this morning.

The last US troops except 50,000 Stay-behind (snigger) "Advisors" and twice that number of Mercenaries are packing their bags for the flight out of Iraq. Expect their redeployment to our Afghanistan, Pakistan, Horn of Africa, and Latin American theaters of operation.

Leaving behind an Iraqi government still isn't. More.

To wit... No Coast Guard. Over the weekend three men with AK47s and a boat attacked and robbed FOUR CARGO SHIPS anchored near Basra... even the tableware was taken.

More protest in Kashmir as troops shoot at the crowds. 75 dead so far, and that on top of the monsoons that have hit that region. More on the effect of those monsoons on the West's imperial wars in the region in the commentary.

If you were a US veteran discharged between approximately 2004 and 2007 for 'personality disorder', you've potentially been mis-diagnosed and under -paid. But...

"The Hump"... Job bloat in the US military will be whittled down with 50 top brass officers in the various services being coaxed and coerced into retirement.

But the ones that remain employed are still pulling the strings ... "General Petraeus insists he will not be bound by Obama's Afghan exit date", The Guardian (UK)

41 years ago yesterday it was the only news one could see on the front pages of America's newspapers, and despite the fact 16 year old Razer was in attendance over that weekend and has stories of the times to tell, let S. Brian Willson set the scene for our last news item...
Woodstock, NY, 41 yrs ago, Aug 15, 1969, the tiny town is scene of a 300,000 people's festival of a cultural revolution.

Just back from Viet Nam, I was on military leave, coincidentally at a B & B in Woodstock, VT. Only learning of the festival in the newspaper at breakfast table, I was ecstatic that a people's revolution seemed in the making. Another couple at the table was in grief as their only son had been killed in Viet Nam the previous month. When I told them I was just back, they clasped my hands and we just cried together, hoping that a revolution was about to turn the USA into a kind society.

If, only if. [In Full]
Meanwhile, in the here and now, in the 'revolution interrupted', the word gets passed around:
This is a nation-wide call to action!

Come to Fort Hood, Texas, Aug. 22 to participate in peaceful actions with veterans and anti-war leaders opposing the deployment of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment's 5,000 Soldiers to Iraq. This is your invite. Can you attend? [In Full]
