Obama and Harper are looking like arrogant, stupid rich boys that don't want (or don't know) how to play ball with the other kids...

Eventually, they will realize how isolated, and fragile, they are,  while the other kids keep rising together, helping each other... and having fun !

“If one man and his tiny team could claim more KIAs [killed in action] than an entire battalion without raising red flags among superiors; if a brigade commander could up the body count by picking off civilians from his helicopter with impunity; if a top general could institutionalize atrocities through the profligate use of heavy firepower in areas packed with civilians -- then what could be expected down the line, especially among heavily armed young infantrymen operating in the field for weeks, angry, tired, and scared, often unable to locate the enemy and yet relentlessly pressed for ki

George Bush is doing it. So is China, and the province of Ontario.

There are not too many examples in history when a one-day event has shaped the course of an entire decade and perhaps even an entire century. What occurred on September 11, 2001 was that event and its repercussions impact the entire world and the environment. Some very disturbing questions about that day deserve more attention from the general public, the alternative media and all concerned about justice, human rights, peace and the environment.
