    "Muslim rage", for all its ethno-cultural implications, is symptomatic of a genetic defect, e.g., the "bad seed syndrome" which demonstrates a propensity for irrational mental process and pathological behavior.

    Per the Old Testament, reason enough God named the Jews and excluded the "Others" as the "chosen people."

Also, THEY may be afraid of future Military Coups so by demonizing and defunding the Military, they may save themselves.

    You're probably right. Rush made an interesting comment the other day of which I was unaware. Nick was in Iraq at his dad's request to try and generate new business for his dad. IOW, Dad sent his kid there and is directly responsible for him being in a position to be kidnapped and killed. Now, to shift the responsibility from himself for what happened (because to do otherwise would mean he had to acknowledge his own responsibility for Nick's death), he tries to make Bush guilty. But all the crockodile tears and false claims against Bush won't wash Nick's blood from his hands.

    I've been wondering very much of the same thing. Nick (and his father Michael) Berg's connection with Michael Moore is suspicious. The other "half of the story" is known by others, probably members of the MEDIA as well. Truthseekers will have to pursue it. Nick Berg, a private citizen, choose to go to Iraq and he had a purpose.

    Michael Berg's first allegiance is to the PARTY line. Berg deserves no respect nor sympathy for his psychotic perceptions of blame and the cause and effect of his son's regrettable death in Iraq by Muslim terrorists. It is easier to accept the irrational Drama Queens Sheehan and the Jersey Four Widows as icons for bathos. Michael Berg is the PARTY's willing fool. It is easier for Berg to carry forth the PARTY's propaganda mantra than to think like an intelligent man seeking the truth.

    BTW, Excerpt:



    That’s what makes a picture like Invasion of the Body Snatchers important. [1]
    [1958 Blk/Wht film classic]
    This theme is directly expressed in the film by McCarthy's character, who says at one point:

    In my practice, I've seen how people have allowed their humanity to drain away. Only it happened slowly instead of all at once. They didn't seem to mind...All of us--a little bit--we harden our hearts, grow callous. Only when we have to fight to stay human do we realize how precious it is to us, how dear. [2]
    Later, the psychiatrist Gates, himself turned into a pod person, gives a speech that sounds like Siegel's musings on the attractions of conformity:

    Your new bodies are growing in there. They're taking you over cell for cell, atom for atom. There is no pain. Suddenly, while you're asleep, they'll absorb your minds, your memories and you're reborn into an untroubled world...Tomorrow you'll be one of us...There's no need for love...Love. Desire. Ambition. Faith. Without them, life is so simple, believe me. [3]

Television cameras focused on Hillary's baseball cap; it is far more important that voters know where she stands on the issue of national sovereignty. Not until WorldNetDaily reported the Cronkite speech Nov. 30, did Americans discover that both Hillary and Walter are avid advocates of world government.
