Here's a couple of video picks of the week :

and from Britain Bolton gets a lecture from former labour party MP & Cabinet Minister Tony Benn ( found at at ICH & youtube )

(comment at youtube) " Bolton is pulled up on his chickenhawk past by Veteran Tony Benn, always a man who knows his stuff Benn gives a brief rundown of WHY the USA and UK (amerUKA), can't win this pointless futile imperial war. What I find most disturbing about this clip is Boltons leering face as he is confronted with the truth, a real lack of conscious..."

"I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy. I considered the war in Vietnam already lost." JOHN BOLTON

What is really interesting to me is that Tony Benn draws a parallel between the invasion & occupation of Iraq with the German bombing of London during WWII .
And to go further this intrepid writer would add - besides weren't the Germans also trying to export an ideology which they believed to be superior to all others & didn't they also believe they were doing God's work or the work which was a result of the principles of Natural Law.

Member of audience who is an Iraqi tries to give John Bolton a " reality check " & history lesson on Saddam's regime & American Complicity but Bolton just returns to his Neocon Spin & talking points & rehashes Neocon propaganda about Saddam - he forgets to add that the WMDS Saddam once had were mainly supplied to him by the USA - & that the USA was not concerned at the time of the mass murder of Kurds by Saddam because at the time Saddam was America's friend & ally .

And now for a musical interlude : JOHNNY CASH PERFORMS " GOD's GONNA CUT YOU DOWN "

Take care,
