Why the US would train and equip the people who did this is beyond me.

The Journal tries to pin the fallout from wasteful wars and globalization's dislocations on "Pitchfork Pat."

Democrats who had been programmed to blindly vote for Hillary Clinton are picking their jaws up off the floor after learning the truth about Hillary’s ties to Monsanto. The ties run so deep that she’s now being dubbed the “Bride of Frankenfood.” (Tweet this story)
Shockingly, Hillary Clinton’s ties to Monsanto are new information to her liberal support base. It drives home the important point that nearly everyone supporting Hillary Clinton has no idea who she really is, as evidenced by this stunning new video from Mark Dice and Luke Rudkowski.

Actually I love her logo. A red arrow pointing to the right. Am I the only one in America to see the irony in that?

Not too surprising. In fact, not surprising at all.
 
The man who actually presented the intel on Iraq to George W. Bush admits to Chris Matthews that we went to Iraq based on lies.

W. didn't make the best decision he could with the intelligence. They wanted a war and created the intelligence

We could never know that this was close to the end of the America we grew up pledging allegiance to every school day.

This is a major crime against The People of this country.
Newly released video captures the final moments of an active-duty soldier who died after self-reporting to an El Paso, Texas jail in 2012 for a two-day sentence for driving while intoxicated. Sgt. James Brown told guards he couldn’t breathe at least 20 times, as they piled on top of him, carried him to an infirmary, and placed a mask over his face.

Why not to trust CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and Fox (obviously).
 
This is a story about the media blackout of important information about Israel: that their leaders are seriously misguided.

Two weeks ago, Electronic Intifada reported public comments by Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon in which he cited Hiroshima and Nagasaki as role models in responding to Iran. Ya’alon suggested that Israel might have to nuke Iran in order to prevent a long war: “at the end, we might take certain steps.” Last week Ali Gharib picked up the EI report at Lobelog and linked to the video of Ya’alon, speaking in English on May 5 to the Israel Law Center (and posted by that rightwing group, which supplied a transcript).

Now those who claim that this battle is not fair because democracy can’t fight back tyrannical regime — not talking about terror organizations–  I don’t agree with it.

In certain cases, we might take certain steps that we believe that these steps should be taken in order to defend ourselves. I mentioned the discussion about the interception of the rockets’ positions on civilian houses. We decided to do it.

I can imagine some other steps that should be taken. Of course, we should be sure that we can look at the mirror after the decision, or the operation. Of course, we should be sure that it is a military necessity. We should consider cost and benefit, of course.

But, at the end, we might take certain steps.

I do remember the story of President Truman was asked, How do you feel after deciding to launch the nuclear bombs, Nagasaki and Hiroshima, causing at the end the fatalities of 200,000, casualties? And he said, When I heard from my officers the alternative is a long war with Japan, with potential fatalities of a couple of millions, I thought it is a moral decision.

We are not there yet.* But that what I’m talking about. Certain steps in cases in which we feel like we don’t have the answer by surgical operations,* or something like that.

So not only is he implicitly threatening nuclear war, he’s admitting that Israel has nukes?

Chemi Shalev of Haaretz and Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, who has worked at Huffpo, retweeted the piece. Eli Clifton tweeted:

Israeli Def. Minister is using WWII and nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a moral guide for dealing w Iran

Jon Schwarz pointed out:

It would be pretty big news if Iran’s Defense Minister were asked about Israel and he started talking about Hiroshima

But there has been no coverage of this story in the mainstream media. It’s a blackout, conscious or not.

So the mainstream media are once again covering up crazy/scary/rightwing Israeli attitudes. Jodi Rudoren of the New York Times, for instance, is of the opinion that only a “small strain” in Israeli society is for holding on to the West Bank. It’s no wonder that the Times hasn’t covered Ya’alon’s frightening statement.

Yet these are the officials that the Obama administration is dealing with. These are the paranoid war-planners whom the White House has struggled to contain for years. And the American people are clueless.
Moshe Ya'alon, Israeli defense minister, said that Israel might have to nuke Iran ala Hiroshima and Nagasaki to prevent a long war with greater casualties, and the American press has ignored these ...

Forewarned is forearmed. Don't believe the neocon hype about Iran. They don't deserve a second chance to be believed on any subject, let alone a war of aggression.
What we knew in 2003 didn't make the case for war—a campaign of hype and deceit did.
