A SPEECH "ABOVE AND BEYOND" THE CALL OF DUTY BY NONE OTHER THAN THE REMARKABLE: KEITH OLBERMANN...!

QUOTE:

Go to Iraq and Fight, Mr. President

Special Comment - By Keith Olbermann

It is one of the great, dark, evil lessons, of history. A
country — a government — a military machine — can
screw up a war seven ways to Sunday. It can get thousands
of its people killed. It can risk the safety of its citizens. It
can destroy the fabric of its nation. But as long as it can
identify a scapegoat, it can regain or even gain power.

Facing the Truth

By Monica Benderman

A marine not only convicted of conspiring to commit kidnapping,
larceny, and making false statements; but the murder – MURDER –
of an innocent Iraqi man, was given his sentence. He is to receive
a reduction in rank and a bad conduct discharge. THIS is what
America has become. Continue

Trouble in Hedgistan: “Its gonna get a lot worse”

By Mike Whitney

The compiled assets of the Bear Sterns High-Grade Structured
Credit Strategies Fund—nearly $20 billion—have vanished
into the miasma of cyber-space where they will soon be joined
by $1.4 trillion of other, equally worthless, Collateralized
Debt Obligations (CDO). Continue

Working For The Clampdown

By James Bovard

How many pipe bombs might it take to end U.S. democracy?
Far fewer than it would have taken a year ago. The Defense
Authorization Act of 2006, passed on September 30, empowers
President George W. Bush to impose martial law in the event
of a terrorist “incident” or if he or other federal officials
perceive a shortfall of “public order” or even in response
to antiwar protests that get unruly as a result of government
provocations. Continue

Thom Hartmann interviews Paul Craig Roberts:

Paul Craig Roberts, old-school republican and former Reagan
official known to be "father of Reaganomics" wrote an op-ed,
"Impeach Now Or Face the End of Constitutional Democracy,"
on 7/16/07. Which prompted Thom to interview him. He argues
that we are very, very close to a scenario where the Bush
administration could instate a dictatorial police state yes,
in America.

How Empires End

By Patrick J. Buchanan

It is a near certainty the U.S.-backed government will fall and
those we leave behind will suffer the fate of our Vietnamese
and Cambodian friends in 1975. As U.S. combat brigades move
out, contractors, aid workers and diplomats left behind will
be more vulnerable to assassination and kidnapping. There
could be a stampede for the exit and a Saigon ending in
the Green Zone. Continue

The Invisible Government

By John Pilger

Many people who regard themselves on the left supported
Bush's attack on Afghanistan. That the CIA had supported
Osama Bin Laden was ignored, that the Clinton administration
had secretly backed the Taliban, even giving them
high-level briefings at the CIA, is virtually unknown
in the United States. Continue

Rising from the Phoenix's Flames

By Emily Spence

All considered, we will have to become more aware that
whatever everyone does (or doesn't do) can effect the
social whole in monumental ways. Therefore, we can no
longer afford to take advantage of others to fill our own
coffers. We can no longer be caviler about the widespread
demise of other species. We can no longer tolerate escalating
consumption of resources as if there is no end of them in sight.
