 :-(
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

The United States has signaled to Gulf Arab allies that an attack on Iran could take place in 2007.

Diplomatic sources said the Bush administration has raised the prospect of a U.S. strike on Iran over the next few months. The sources said the discussions with Gulf Cooperation Council states have also been conducted by U.S. Central Command as well as the U.S. intelligence community.

"There has not been a U.S. commitment, but the discussions have been interpreted as an expression of intent," the source said. "Right now, the U.S. message is that the GCC must get ready for any contingency."

On Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice meets foreign ministers from the GCC states as well as Egypt and Jordan. The sources said Ms. Rice intends to brief the foreign ministers on U.S. strategy toward Iraq and Iran in a meeting scheduled to take place in Kuwait.

Someone needs to take that bitch aside and slap the fuck out of her.

She really is a dumbass, and so are the people who hand this shit to her to peddle around like a whore with 2002's goods.

Mother fuck an A.

She's a racist conspiracy. In a couple of years time people will say "yeah but look what happened the last time a person of colour held a position of power". Same thing as maggie thatcher did for the notion of a woman PM. (try suggesting that one in the uk and see where it gets you)

I want to know what her doctoral thesis is on.  Because I suspect it was some soft topic like Prussian diplomacy from Napoleon to to Versailles.  Its funny how I've searched all over and not found it once.  She also did intern work with the Rand Corporation, who have run a number of shady (and in some cases impossible) scernarios in front of various administrations to convince them to intervene in Central and South West Asia.

Also, because I am wont to notice such things....

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/6294643.stm

Quote
Schools in England should teach “core British values” alongside cultural diversity, a report says.

The report suggests that

Quote
pupils should study free speech, the rule of law, mutual tolerance and respect for equal rights.

Now, the bolded one is very interesting.  Because it has apparently now replaced Justice as an ideal.  Justice and fairplay was something at the centre of the whole thing, according to people like my grandfather. 

But of course, we are not talking about actual values here.  This report says nothing more than the values which are useful to the political elite.  This is no mistake but a deliberate and careful crafted attempt to engineer the public discourse around Britishness in a direction favoured by the political elite, one that above everything else, stresses and emphasises the ‚Äòlegitimacy‚Äô of their position. That‚Äôs Blair‚Äôs message in his speech, we should value, first and foremost, democracy and the rule of law, that from which he derives his authority and status - justice doesn‚Äôt even merit a mention, not as a value in its own right.

Blair’s vision is one in which the sovereignty of parliament and the laws it passes should be respected no matter what, a false vision of a ‘Britishness’ that is both absolutist and authoritarian, the kind of ‘Britishness’ that belongs, properly, to Henry VIII and not to the 21st Century.

well i guess Bush has sent in the "shock and awe"
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
