Is Kissinger a coward?

Brzezinski and Kissinger met on “Late Addition.” Evidently both are cowards because they agree that American troops should “cut and run.” They also both agreed that the administration’s goal of making a modern secular democracy in Iraq is no longer possible. I never knew that the man whose ruthless triangulation and Machiavellian foreign policy contributed to the deaths of millions of innocent Southeast Asians was a liberal. I might have to find myself a new label.

However, it’s refreshing to see high level policy wonks from either side of the political spectrum agreeing where disagreeing would destroy their credibility. Too bad this phenomenon is unknown in the political arena.

Hi Demotiki!

There was a rather scarey and frank documentary on UK Tv this week on the Iraq situation.

It was "Dispatches" on Channel 4, Monday 21st November at 11pm.

1/3, this documentary showed the reality of everyday lfe and the real political situation which is going on that we do not see on our news reports, and why.

In order to maintain a semblance of control, US military have made deals with the Islamic groups. Sharia law is the only law in these areas, and women are now dressing in full Burka, because they have to. The populations in these areas were told who to vote for by the Mullahs in the `Democratic` elections.
The US is turning Iraq into its` worst nightmare, an Islamic state.

1 0f 3, 21st Nov, `The Reckoning` asks if democracy can prevail.

2 of 3, 22nd Nov, `America`s Secret Shame`, looks at attempts to suppress the casualty figures.

3 of 3, 23rd Nov, `Kidnap and Torture American Style`, looks at the detention and torture of suspected terrorists in foreign countries by the US.

I only managed to see the First documentary, which was extremely alarming.

I thought I would let you know about this seies of documentaries,as I know you may want to look at them on-line.

When the UK and the US finally do pull out of Iraq, they will have left one hell of a mess.
It is a disaster on a grand scale.

Zep,

Thanks so much for keeping us up-to-date on what is happening in Iraq. As you may know, our media is owned by only a few companies, and many stories are not carried because they would go against the interest of corporate sponsors.

I'll definately try to download that. I really wish I could get domestic BBC through my cable package, but it's not available.

Things are starting to change here. Many Republicans are starting to find the courage to stand up for what they believe in instead of blindly following leaders who do not deserve their loyalty. It's very difficult for anyone to admit that they were wrong, especially when their mistakes have caused so much needless suffering. I hope that in some small way this blogg will help some people to change for the better.

Thanks again for being part of our community!

Peace,

Hope the documentary is of interest.
Let me know your thoughts on it when you have had a chance to see it.
It just seems such a mess.

I believe that it might also be on BBC on Demand for those of you with the Time Warner On Demand package.. (up near channel 1000). I will definately check it out, thx Zep.

zep,

Yeah, it is a mess. Fortunately the "flip-flopper-in-chief" has reversed himself for the nth time and now is saying that we will be out of Iraq ASAP. Sometimes I am so happy he has no spine!
