Backup to points made re why we never should have gone into Afghanistan and Iraq in the first place

Listened today to Thom dispute the perception a fellow who happened to be in Iraq, I guess for the invasion. Thom brought up how Pres. Bush had turned down an offer to bring Osama BinLaden to justice to be tried. How GW felt the need to be a war president etc. Besides Thom's facts and the important fact brought up by an informed caller regarding one of the other reasons for invading Afghanistan, an oil pipeline, another significant reason we had no reason was that no Afghani or Iraqi were involved in the 9/11 attacks.

No one puts a bomb in a bomb basket / dumpster unless they don't want to kill

No one puts a bomb in a bomb basket / dumpster unless they don't want to kill. It's way too early, and I don't have any facts but... If these "bombs" were made as harmless as possible by being planted in dumpsters and garbage cans that smacks of some kind of, very dangerous, political manipulation..? ???

Why we don't tell the Saudis to stick it.

The USA at present and with future use of renewables, has enough energy to last for a long time without the Saudi Oil. That said, the reasons we don't tell them to stick it are at least two: 1. The Texas Refiners are set up to process heavy crude which comes from the Saudis at a discount. Guess which group, initials KB get that discount. 2. The other reason major has the initials MIC and I don;t mean the Mouse. Google oil imports for the answer.

the RICH NEVER face real JUSTICE

Hartmann Report highlights Elizabeth Warren stating , “You explained these actions by noting your view that ‘the American people deserve those details in a case of intense public interest,’” Warren wrote to Comey. “If Secretary Clinton’s email server was of sufficient ‘interest’ to establish a new FBI standard of transparency, then surely the criminal prosecution of those responsible for the 2008 financial crisis should be subject to the same level of transparency.”

Wag the Dog

Years ago that expression was developed to make the point that the media often creates a drumbeat that leads to war. William Randolop Hearst reportedly told a photographer before Spanish-American War, "You give me the pictures, and I'll give you the war."
