    I think some of you should be aware that Dick Cheney has taken to hanging around your neighborhood with a loaded shotgun. So get patriotic you commie malcontents... or else. Heil Ya'll!

    I have a feeling that the so called "war on terror" will be won when the Republicans find that they can no longer use it to their political advantage.

    What I don't understand is why no one else sees the way the Republicans exploit 9/11. It's a slap in the face to all those who died. 9/11 was the best thing that ever happened for President Bush and he is going to ride that gravy train to the bitter end.

    The war on terrorism is the new Cold War.

    We already have overseas ownership of our ports so banning it would be stupid. Plus the UAE group that wants to manage them already manages most of the large ports in the world that ship goods into the states. If they were a terrorist front organization that wanted to ship something into the US they could already do that. This whole thing is so dumb.

    The problem is the double standard.

    Three years ago, we were being encouraged to boycott France and Germany because they dared to disagree with us. Remember "Freedom Fries"? Subtle nuances of diplomacy be damned... "You're either with us or you're with the terrorists. The beast will make off with your children! He'll come after them in the night!" (I watched Beauty and the Beast last night, and I now suspect that the film's character Gaston is in charge of American foreign policy)

    Now that the public has been conditioned to respond in a certain way, here comes a real-world situation. One corporation wants to make a perfectly capitalistic move to buy out another corporation. It's just that the buyer happens to be a state-owned concern, and the state that owns it happens to have the word "Arab" in its name. Subtle nuances: being owned in country X is no more a problem than being owned in country Y in the modern global economy. But we don't *do* "subtle" anymore, remember?
    We don't like
    What we don't understand
    In fact it scares us
    And this monster is mysterious at least

    Bring your guns
    Bring your knives
    Save your children and your wives
    We'll save our village and our lives

    We'll kill the Beast!
