Stuff I was reading and watching this week

Putin's Censored Press Conference.
Putin has a point too. Russia is being screwed over by the bushistas. You don't see much of what is happening between Russia and the US in the US media. Another Cold War may be on the horizon.

Things Your Momma Didn't Tell You
There is a movement to impeach Bush and Cheney. You wouldn't know it if you read the US media.

By Lieberman’s Logic, the US May Have to Bomb Itself
“The United States should launch airstrikes against any country which is supplying weapons or other support to insurgents in Iraq.”

How the Neocons Misread Machiavelli
It's funny the author should mention that. I was just reading The Prince. If you are going to go to war, make sure you win.

Another J. Edgar Hoover?
Almost 90 years later, today's war on terror exists in an echo chamber of the 1919 Red scare.

What Every American Should Know About Iraq
Professor David Green is right on with this no spin history that everyone should read.
Maybe I need to print this out and keep it with me in case the topic comes up.

The City of New Orleans Turns to International Aid
.
If you read between the lines of this story, you almost get the impression that the Feds failed NOLA on purpose to illustrate why "we need less government."

A Visual Glossary of Religious Symbols
Stuff I like to look at and know about.

Atomic Veterans History Project
Since we were speaking about the Cold War

If you like old movies, Check out Thermonuclear Tests at archive.org. I downloaded most of them and burned them to DVD so I could sit on the couch and eat popcorn as I trip down memory lane. I suppose it's time to wake up and smell the napalm, but on the other hand, you may want to bury your head in the hot southwestern sand or maybe go on vacay to some pacific island.
