Taking The Terror Threat Seriously

By Chris Jones, published on Jul 2, 2007

A sentiment that I often hear expressed is that somehow the threat of terrorism isn’t real, and the “War on Terror” is something that was invented by the Bush Administration purely for political gain. The cynicism that many have about terrorism is not only dangerous but just plain foolish. The recent bombing attempts in Britain and Scotland only serve to underscore the continued danger we all face from radical Islam. British authorities said today that the bombers attempted to detonate the devices using a cell phone and only a wiring glitch stopped them from exploding. Cell phone records... (more)

The Necessity of Foresight

By Credo, published on Jul 1, 2007

...criticism but never without symptoms. Our world is such that it leaves no room for indecision or complacency, because it has developed into a frightening world of societal dogmatic absolutes. What we are assured of (judging from our past and our present circumstances via the “War on terrorism”) is a possible break down of our entire system as the adverse methods in which the national leaders in our government has directed through political policies and new administered laws concerning this never ending war. It is ludicrous to assume the continued stabilization and well being ... (more)

The Sopranos cuts to black

By Liz, published on Jun 18, 2007

...and perhaps always was, and Tony’s behavior towards Junior offers a token of forgiveness to the old man who shot him. In Tony’s immediate family, more drastic changes are afoot. When we last see AJ, he is severely depressed, recently released from suicide watch, obsessed with terrorism, and inept at bedding his adorable young girlfriend. We see him next in the yellow SUV that Tony liberated from a layman who owed him gambling debts. AJ is smoking and contemplating Bob Dylan lyrics with his girlfriend. The two are now ready to make a move and begin to make out just as the... (more)

OC al-Qaeda Member Beguiles Media with More Demands, Threats

By Charles Harmison, published on Jun 1, 2007

...Virgina Tech had nothing to do with al-Qaeda or maybe now the terrorists are responsible for everything bad that happens post 9-11. For Fox News' Hannity and Colmes, for example, this was a better time to bring back the two week old poll that suggested 25% of Muslim Americans supported terrorism. This is a poll that is under harsh scrutiny to say the least. Nonetheless, Hannity used this poll, amid precisely edited flashes from the Azzam video, and an expert panel on Muslim Americans, featuring Brigitte Gabriel, to prove how easily Muslims in this country could, and even are,... (more)

Giuliani: America's Mayor

By Hunter Addams, published on May 17, 2007

...tied president who seems to think that we have some sort of problem co-existing with fish. If everyone really knew what Giuliani was about, I don't think he'd be a big front runner for this election.

When the Trade Centers were attacked in 93, the FBI gave suggestions on counter-terrorism, and what to in case it is attacked again. He ignored those plans and, wouldn't you guess it, they were attacked again. He put the main safety offices in WTC7 after the FBI urged him not to, and wouldn't you know it, WTC7 is no longer there. He tightened his pockets and screwed the FDNY out... (more)

Coachella 2007

By RLSegarra, published on May 1, 2007

... back so as not be in any way "Sardined" when Rage Against the Machine hits the stage. Manu Chao and his band play before Rage and he comes out and blasts everyone off there feet. In Spanish and English he condemns President Bush, the war in Iraq and explains to everyone that the way to stop terrorism and ignorance is through education and hope. After their killer performance, and as everyone awaits the return of Rage, Manu and his band members return to the fence in front of the stage and proceed to hose down the very hot crowd supplying them (where were they Friday night) with much... (more)

Weekly Review

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 15, 2007

...Limbaugh Show saying, “I wish she hadn’t done it” and reiterated the Constitutional role of the president as “the one who conducts foreign policy, not the speaker of the House.” The Bush Administration policy regarding Syria is that Syria is a state sponsor of terrorism and that it should be isolated from the international community. Yet, by defying the president and meeting with al-Assad, Pelosi has clearly done an end-around-run on the president’s policy. In his response to the Post, Lantos reverted to typical Democrat propaganda referring to... (more)

A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand

By Amo, published on Mar 26, 2007

...media, and I once again wonder how our enemies view the coverage, when beheadings of innocent civilians becomes less newsworthy then an American GI embarrassing an Iraqi detainee, when respected news organizations outline in detail secret and sensitive operational methods in fighting terrorism, and claim “our right to know”, when a spineless and self serving Congress threatens to cut off funding to our troops, and demands a date for withdrawal, and with the same breath “support our troops”…politics, like war is a nasty business, and yet I wonder how... (more)

Young People Today -- An Old Fogie's Take

By Charla Howard, published on Mar 19, 2007

... two wacky superpowers flexing their muscles and keeping each other in check. Today, they feel what it means to be the children of the world’s only superpower. Their “leaders” borrow trillions against the future to wage inexplicable and seemingly endless wars on drugs and terrorism and gay marriage. Their “leaders” discount global warming as myth, on the one hand, and designate “intelligent design” as science on the other. Just as devastating as Katrina and Rita, all manner of psycho-spiritual shit is hitting the fan in America, and we all,... (more)

Chiquita Banana Execs on the Way to Guantanamo Bay?

By Steven Lane, published on Mar 16, 2007

President George Bush's policy on terrorism has been repeated more than once. It couldn't have been stated more clearly. "Anyone financing a terrorist organisation should be prosecuted as vigorously as the terrorists." In numerous news reports today, it was reported that, "Banana company Chiquita Brands International said Wednesday it has agreed to a $25 million fine and will admit to paying a Colombian terrorist group for protection in a volatile farming area." It seems like some of the big-wigs at the Chiquita head office, based in Cincinnati, OK-ed about $1.7 million in payments to the... (more)
