Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.
After the commentary. What's missing from our assassination wars? A US forces casualty count. Whether it will prevent a US CIVILIAN casualty count somewhere down the road... as a soldier might say, SIR NO SIR! Courtesy of Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine) and OuterNational. The dubout and a historical reminder of the ineffectiveness of our attempts to assassinate our way to 'victory' courtesy of the Asian Dub Foundation, Rivers of Dub, from Adbusters Live Without Dead Time. If you need the visualsThey're here.
» Bad Republicans... No votes for YOU! As we all know (and many of you are undoubtely experiencing effects of) The Republicans have been cutting federal funds... and one of the major cuts was disaster relief funds for FEMA which left many hurricane Katrina projects hanging. Now with just a few months left in the federal budget there isn't enough funding to cover the $4.5 billion dollars needed to foot the tab for hurricane Irene. There will also be a $5 billion dollar shortfall in next year's funding. Meanwhile Vermont, upstate New York, New Hampshire, Massachussetts, New Jersey, and other Eastern seaboard states are having major flooding problems due to the storms.
» Sometimes we say they're separate groups, sometimes we don't - US intelligence agencies have confirmed that the second in command of al Qaeda for the Afghan/Pakistan/Yemen/Somali theatres (They say at other times the Yemeni and Somali groups are different 'franchises') was killed in a Waziristan drone strike the other day. More about drone assassinations in the commentary.
» Muammar al-Gadafi's family, his #2 wife, two of his sons and a daughter about to give birth have been allowed to enter Algeria on humanitarian grounds. The rebel government has demanded their return for trial... despite the fact they've committed no crimes as anyone in the West understands 'crime'. Three other sons are still at large along with their father.
» President Obama will speak to a mostly friendly non-protesting crowd about our foreign policy and wars at the VFW convention today.
» The Muslim holiday season of Ramadan ends today. Expect renewed protests and violence in Syria and more fighting in Iraq, where (Thanks to us) a civil war appears to be in progress.

Muammar al-Gadaffi would have undoubtedly sent aid. The Libyan CIA government won't... They work for people who WANT co-dependence from Africans. Major corporate profits for Western nations DEPENDS on disasters like these they help create.
No, the West didn't cause lack of rainfall, but it HAS sabotaged any independent infrastructure development efforts in Africa since at least WWII.
African summit raises fraction of $1.4bn famine fund
African leaders have come under fierce criticism after a much-delayed African Union summit to tackle the food crisis in the Horn of Africa raised less than 4 per cent of the shortfall needed. Only four heads of state – from Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti and Equatorial Guinea – attended the meeting, [More @ Independent UK]
Republicans and their TeaTard ilk in the news...
According to CBSNews, 'Kinder and Gentler' Republican shill Ron Paul says he doesn't believe in the 'theory' of evolution. Do you suppose he bucks the fundamentalist trend and believes YOU have a choice in what to believe about the origins of life?
Texas Governor Rick Perry is, for the moment, the tea party frontrunner. Perry has apparently had a change of 'heart' about a few things since his rise to the top of the Texas political S*itheap and concurrent grasp at the presidential 'straw':
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has, at least for the moment, coalesced the various elements of tea party support behind his candidacy — providing himself with a support base that has propelled him to the top of the field. [More at the Washington Post]A letter from Rick Perry when he was Texas Agriculture commissioner thanking First Lady (1999 right?) Hillary Rodham Clinton for her efforts on National Health Care Reform. No Rick... You CANNOT haz a cheezburger now.
"A properly functioning system of indoctrination has a variety of tasks. Its primary target are the 'stupid and ignorant masses'. They must be kept that way; marginalized, and isolated. Ideally, each person should be alone in front of the TV screen watching sports, soap operas, or comedies, deprived of organizational structures that permit individuals lacking resources to discover what they think and believe in, to engage in interaction with others, to formulate their own concerns and programs, and to act to realize them.
This hapless multitude are the proper targets of the mass media and a public education system geared to obedience and training in needed skills, including the skill of repeating patriotic slogans on timely occasions." ~~Noam Chomsky
(And PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives...)
