Detta är ingen fredsbevarande mission
Speaking in London after a meeting with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Rice said, "I do think the alliance [NATO - North Atlantic Treaty Organization] is facing a real test here. Our populations need to understand this is not a peacekeeping mission but rather a long-term fight against extremists."

The generalissimos of the New Crusade didn't consult enough scripture:
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell -- and great was its fall.

Someone is cutting deals.
History will record that a decisive misstep in the
crash of the American Empire was taken on March 19,
2003. September 3, 2007 will be a historical
place-holder for a kind of death-gasp of empire ...

We haven't reckoned the body count yet, because it is still rising. That's the sinful part.
It's over. Admit it. Get over it. Get out. Bring them home now!
President Hugo Chavez, Address to the United Nations
Representatives of the governments of the world, good
morning to all of you.
First of all, I would like to invite you, very respectfully, to those who have not read this book, to read it.
Noam Chomsky, one of the most prestigious American and world intellectuals, Noam Chomsky, and this is one of his most recent books, 'Hegemony or Survival: The Imperialist Strategy of the United States. '"
[Holds up book, waves it in front of General Assembly.]
"It's an excellent book to help us understand what has been happening in the world throughout the 20th century, and what's happening now, and the greatest threat looming over our planet.
The hegemonic pretensions of the American empire are
placing at risk the very survival of the human species.
We continue to warn you about this danger and we appeal
to the people of the United States and the world to
halt this threat, which is like a sword hanging over
our heads. I had considered reading from this book,
but, for the sake of time," [flips through the pages,
which are numerous] "I will just leave it as a
recommendation. It reads easily, it is a very good
book, I'm sure Madame [President] you are familiar with
it. It appears in English, in Russian, in Arabic, in
German. I think that the first people who should read
this book are our brothers and sisters in the United
States, because their threat is right in their own
house. The devil is right at home. The devil, the devil
himself, is right in the house.
"And the devil came here yesterday. Yesterday the devil came here. Right here."[crosses himself]
"And it smells of sulfur still today. Yesterday, ladies
and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the president of the
United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the
devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world.
Truly. As the owner of the world. I think we could call
a psychiatrist to analyze yesterday's statement made by
the president of the United States. As the spokesman of
imperialism, he came to share his nostrums, to try to
preserve the current pattern of domination,
exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world.
An Alfred Hitchcock movie could use it as a scenario. I
would even propose a title: "The Devil's Recipe."
As Chomsky says here, clearly and in depth, the American empire is doing all it can to consolidate its system of domination. And we cannot allow them to do that. We cannot allow world dictatorship to be consolidated. The world parent's statement -- cynical, hypocritical, full of this imperial hypocrisy from the need they have to control everything. They say they want to impose a democratic model. But that's their democratic model. It's the false democracy of elites, and, I would say, a very original democracy that's imposed by weapons and bombs and firing weapons. What a strange democracy. Aristotle might not recognize it or others who are at the root of democracy.
What type of democracy do you impose with marines and bombs?

May God bless us all. Good day to you.
Hugo Chavez is a self-made man. He wasn’t
piggy-backed into Harvard on a legacy grant
(Affirmative Action for plutocrats) or shoehorned into
the White House by corporate gangsters. He grew up in a
two-room thatched palm-leaf house with his five
siblings and dreamt of moving to New York to play
baseball for the Yankees. At age 18 he chose to make
the most of his meager opportunities by enlisting in
For 17 years, Chavez served his country; gradually moving up the chain of command to lieutenant colonel. Unlike his American counterpart, GW Bush, Chavez never went AWOL during wartime or stumbled through years of idle profligacy peering at the world through beer-goggles.
While Bush was busy driving three consecutive companies into insolvency and fattening his bank account with the loot from insider-trading scams, Chavez was putting together the Revolutionary Bolivarian Movement; a leftist political organization which promoted redistribution and civil rights.
Chavez was lifted to the presidency on the backs of peasants and working-class people while Bush was selected by 5 venal judges who repealed the democratic process and suspended the counting of ballots.
The differences between the two men go on and on. It is an interesting study in contrasts and one that is particularly relevant to the deteriorating state of world affairs.
