Not So Polite Dinner Conversation – chance of war? High

with the noose tightening around Trump regarding his contacts with Russia, and his nepotism, it is no surprise that the sabres are rattling about North Korea.  http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/04/politics/white-house-north-korea-china/index.html   It’s a common tactic, a failing administration saying “Look, a bunny!” to get the media focus from them.

Also no surprise that Trump’s support of Assad in Syria has resulting in gassing civilians.  It’s what you get for supporting ignorance and dictators.

What the Boss Likes – White House petition calling for investigation and prosecution of those who lied about the Iraq War

petition copyA small break for some politics by holding people accountable.  Please sign the petition here.  Sorry, my international friends, you unfortunately can’t.

“In that all evidence so far revealed supports that the Bush/Cheney administration intentionally lied to involve the US into the Iraq War, there should be an investgation into who was responsible for the useless deaths of thousands of Americans, Iraqis and citizens of other nations. Such actions are at best illegal and at worst, treasonous. People died because of these lies and those perpetrators should not be allowed to go unquestioned.”

Here in the States, Rachel Maddow has done a documentary based on the book “Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War”  Links for the documentary here with a good review and more of the video here if you can’t see the first.

I can remember protesting this nonsense and being considered less than an American for questioning the drumbeat to war.  Hindsight is always 20/20 but if we refuse to look then we’ll screw up again.

Now if we can just get those damned drones under control.  War by remote control may feel like war without repercussions but it sure as hell isn’t.
