Do Journalists Know How Insane They Sound? And who killed Milosevic?

Watching one of the 24-7 news channels and a pundit 'sagely' opined how a civil war in Iraq might affect President Bush's approval ratings.

If there's a difference between partisan politics and voodoo, please feel free to attempt to make the distinction.

On the other hand, two can play at the wild-speculation-based-on-no-facts game.

Former Serbian leader Milosevic just attempted to call Clinton and Blair to the stand as defense witnesses. Then he suddenly dies in captivity.

It's becoming increasingly obvious the "facts" we were sold in the lead-up to NATO action were, at a minimum, exaggerated. Unlike the many conpiracy theories with no evidence in support, a conspiracy of like-minded internationalists is easy to prove: Clinton, Soros, Heinz, the UN, CFR, the EU, MSM, NGO's, etc.

How, well, convenient that Milosevic was never allowed to present a defense by cross-examining his accusers in politics.

You can hear it coming...

"WHO BENEFITS" from the death of Milosevic?

/Proof? Since when has Justin Raimondo asked for proof? My standards for rumor-mongering are well-established in precedent.

Palestinians Humiliate Themselves

In a March 16 editorial in the New York Times titled, As If That Fire Needed Fuel, the Times writes:

"Israeli Army officials ordered inmates to strip to their underwear, which many did, marching out with clothing on their heads, an embarrassing and completely unnecessary provocation that trampled the dignity of any Palestinian watching that spectacle.

Given the humiliations that ordinary Palestinians suffer merely by trying to get through Israeli checkpoints every day, the prison raid just reinforced the already degrading reality of living under foreign occupation."
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas stated, “What happened without a doubt is an ugly crime which can not be forgiven and a humiliation for the Palestinian people.”

Palesinians should feel humiliated. A majority of Palestinians living in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem support suicide terrorism. A 2001 poll by Dr. Nabil Kukali and the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO), found, "a substantial majority [of Palestinians] (76.1%) support suicidal attacks like that of Netanya [in May, 2001], whereas 12.5% oppose, and 11.4% express no opinion." A 2006 poll taken by the Jerusalem Media & Communication Center after the recent Hamas political victories found, “56.2% [of Palestinians] strongly or somewhat support suicide bombing operations against Israeli civilians whereas 40.7% oppose such operations.”

Considering that the majority of Palestinians support suicide terror, and considering that Israel prevents suicide killings on a daily basis, it should come as no surprise that captured Palestinians are asked to remove their clothes during the process of incarceration. Why should any Israeli take a chance of being blown up? Why should Israel present Palestinians with opportunities to commit suicide killings? Palestinians should feel humiliated about their culture of death and they should be asked to strip naked during the process of incarceration as long as their population continues to support, condone, and commit suicide killings.

I can't read Raimondo. For an anti-war activist and so-called pacifist the guy is filled with more hate than anyone I know.
