Victory in the middle east.... Finally, Mother Russia has all of the oil it needs to start it's next campagin!!!!
Well, our european left dislikes Israel, but this is not antisemit. And as says Noam Chomsky, Israel is the real axis of evil and the cause of all problems throught the world.
Exactly, comrade! Just remember the happy an peaceful decade of 1940s preceding the creation of Israel. World War? A gross exagerration! Nothing could ever go wrong until Israel appeared on the map. For the first time in history harmony was disrupted!
But let's look even deeper! The world was even more happy an peaceful 200 years ago - until the founding Fathers decided to split from Britain and set up the USA, the Evil Empire a.k.a the Great Satan. That's when all evil really started...
But if you really want to go to the roots, remember the journey of Columbus! He started the disastrous European expansion to the New World, which the right-wingers will be celebrating tomorrow (Columbus Day).
But the very first step away from harmony and towards evil was made when man first stepped out of Africa, leaving the cradle of human race to colonize Europe and Asia.
In fact, let's face it: the very nature of man is all wrong and evil. The monkey mother should've aborted the first mutant human baby that later gave birth to the oppressing, exploitive, and destructive human beings.
There is a school of thought that maintain that the Neanderthals, if given the chance, would've created a much more harmonious, organic, and Earth-friendly lifestyle. But that is a delusion. The politically correct view is to oppose all carbon-based life in the Universe! The cold, lifeless stretches of space are free of exploitation and oppression, and that's what we, the progressive elites, would ultimately like to introduce here as well.

Absolutely, comrade. I'm sure my valourous comrades from the Old Europe will prove that zionism and Israel are the causes of the second world war. And of the first. As said the French former President de Gaulle, Israel is a "small, dominating, arrogant" country (in French: "un petit peuple dominateur et sur de soi").
Is this true? Israel is no more? Finally, Cuba can apply to be the 51st state!
I wonder if my chances at being elected governor will increase if I switch to Republican...
It's because of Israel that I got so damn angry and whupped New Orleans. If only Israel dismantled a couple of months ago, I would have been a mere sun shower.
A Briton, a Frenchman, and a Russian are standing and staring at a portrait of Adam and Eve.
"Look at their calm, their reserve" says the Briton. "Surely they must be British!"
"Nonsense!" replies the Frenchman. "They are beautiful. Surely they must be French!"
The Russian finally speaks, "they have no clothes, no shelter, only an apple to eat, and are being told this is paradise. They are Russian."
What!? They had tons to eat, the only reason they ate the apple was because of Hillary disguised as a snake telling them of the great communist future that would be created if they did eat it!
Does this mean Armegeddon is canceled? No triumphant return of Christ?
No one has offered to replace my eye yet. I call unfair.
And I'm still pretty ugly...like that bitch Madeline Albright...UNFAIR!!!!
Now that Israel is desbanding itself, the Practioners of the religion of Peace are reportedly hatching a new large scale plot involving thousands of martyred homicide-bombers.
The plan's details so far are sketchy but it appears that they are in the process of populating the heavens with enough martyred homicide-bombers in order to launch new homicide attacks there - against heaven itself.
This in retaliation for the deaths of thousands of their kind - murdered by natural disasters - such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and etc. And adds one spokesman -All Ben Had: "what else can we do with all of our wannabe freedom fighters?"
Now that Israel is disbanding itself, we can celebrate the inevitable and glorious result of the "peace process" and "road map," (or, "peace process Lite") which in their great logical and spiritual wisdom simply refused to accept the most relevant facts--such as the continued incitement of Palestinian youth via official Palestinian Authority media and UN-funded schools to utterly dehumanize Israelis and Westerners; the Palestinian Authority's utter passivity and/or complacency in the face of Hamas's unrelenting terrorist efforts; and the PA's stated (and unaltered) objective, in its official charter, to destroy Israel--and simply insisted, "Both sides (meaning Israel) must make sacrifices for peace."
Denial, denial--not just a river in Egypt, but a wonderful way to uphold the nation of Egypt, and the mighty sister nations of Iran, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, and now Palestine, now that the source of all evil, Israel, is gone. Prime Minister Sharon, once your denial mechanism was exercised, "What,"--to quote the great Golda Meir, whose memory we revere and who will soon be inducted as one of the matriarchs of Islam--"took you so long?"
Ah, the Jews are truly a stiff-necked people, for why did you so resist the idea that you had no right to exist in this region of the globe? Don't you see how much easier it would have gone for you if you had just given up sooner? I mean, sure, we now acknowledge that what your brethren suffered at the hands of the Europeans during the Great War was no picnic, but imagine how much more they would have suffered if they'd tried to wage a full-scale war against Hitler? Those who did--in the ghettoes and such--went to so much aggravation, for such little result the end. Imagine the suffering had larger numbers of them tried, with the support of a nation like the U.S., to resist--it would have produced a situation not unlike that which preceded the dismantling of the Zionist entity. As the Jews who once lived here--and whose memories the state of Palestine respects and honors in our museums and memorials, which are a great source of revenue for our bomb-making factories--used to say,"Oy, vey!" (Yes, we are a culturally sensitive people who do not turn up our noses at stealing the expressions of a conquered people, whether we live here, or in the Palestinian Diaspora.)
Both of our community in Palestine and in the Diaspora, in an eerie, perverse parallel to those of the Jews who once existed, thrive, only instead of contributing our intellect and drive to ths region of the world and the other countires where we live, we are engaged in those noble traditions which have been the work of our people for the past century: hate-mongering, brutality, murder, and scapegoating. How, you may wonder, can the Palestinians, a small, historically nomadic people, less than 1 percent of the world's population, have contrubted such a disproportionate amount of suffering, misery, infighting, bloodlust, twistedness, and utter ignorance to the world? We owe it mainly to our Arab brethren, who have used us as cannon fodder, and our own utter refusal to once take an ounce of responsibility for any action which any Palestinian has ever taken, and our total and complete faith in a cult of abject victimhood.
Oh, the future is bright. Above the sound of bombs and the shrieks of women and children, I hear our national anthem, something about "kill the Jews." Oh, my friends, be assured that tyranny is on the march, the entire world its victims, and with he exception of those who will have the spoils, all others are equal in suffering.
Nonsense! "Hotjewess" speaks the capitalist fascist dog speak! Turn her out into the light of truth that is Allah! Uh, I mean Comrade Hillary! Comrade Hillary doesn't seek spoils! Nor does bouncy frolicsome coquette Osama Bin Laden! Look, Osama promised Hillary he wouldn't circumcise her or any of the daughters of the U.S.S.A. so long as we go to mecca yearly, disembowel people with "ideas" contrary to muhammad, and women wear black sheets and submit to any demand a male should ask of her.
Hillary, of course, just wants free medical care for everyone. Well; you know, at least an aspirin for every household and your name on a list to see doctors at some time. Peace, Bread & Aspirin! What could anyone have to say negative about that? And Hillary and Osama love furry animals, plants, and love!
But isn't it obvious? The Al Qaeda friends of ours merely learned of the 9/11 plot and learned of BUSH'S plot to take down the World Trade Center towers, Pentagon and White House. They were instructed by peaceful huggable guru Osama to board those plans covertly and stop the "League of Republican Women" who hijacked the planes and were steering it into the towers and monuments. Luckily, the Al Qaeda friends were able to stop the one headed right for the White House! It is a confusion or lie among our media that the words uttered "Let's Roll!" were made by an American who stopped the White House plane and ran it into a Pennsylvania field! In reality the words spoken were "Akma Jihad Bak Amerika!" Arabic words of love and peace as they bravely thwarted the hijacker pilot of plane #4 headed for the White House. They drove the head of hijacker (84-year old Mrs. Delores Smith of Bloomington, Indiana) into the planes dashboard, but sadly not in time to regain control of the plane to land safely.
Then you doubtniks out there have the nerve to ask why old caucasian women seem to be the target of airport screeners in the U.S.! How dare you! Clinton appointed Head of National Transportation knows what he's doing damn you all! Don't question the man! He is the best friend of the People to ever live! And "old" "harmless" "caucasian" women must be stopped! By God they WILL be stopped by Muhammad and Allah! Or, um, Comrade Hillary! YEAH!

Laughing at dumb f**kers who blew themselves up and killed many people to get cold white raisin beverage in heaven...
Sister Massively Opiated (drinking her cocoa up in cold dark northern climes and waiting for the shit to hit the fan)
Sadly, things always look different in morning, and in Kanada this time of year, when mornings are dark, cocoa is replaced by kava, and kountry's only kapitalist paper - National Post - appears on doorstep shortly after 3:00 am (Yuri drops it off on his way home from checking potato Vodka still) - it is very dark indeed. Previously evenings' mirth is replaced by sad realization that we are all in the shit once again (not that we were ever really out of it... only is deeper today and I have already put hip-waders away until spring thaw).
Paper brings more thorough coverage of yesterday's speech by President Ahmadinejad of Iran, at "The World Without Zionism" conference in Tehran, attended by 3,000 future human bombs who chanted: "Death to Israel!" and "Death to America!"... "The establishment of the Zionist regime was a move by the world oppressor against the Islamic world," he said. "As the Imam [Ayatollah Khomeini] said, 'Israel must be wiped off the map.' The Islamic world will not let its historic enemy live in its heartland." Clearly, he too has found article about virgins actually being cool refreshing white raisin beverage, and is mightily pissed... must be Zionist plot...
"Mr. Ahmadinejad praised Palestinian suicide bombers, and his remarks were delivered just before a suicide bomber killed five people in the Israeli town of Hadera."... "The White House said they underlined American concerns about Tehran's nuclear ambitions. Several reports have estimated that Iran is five to 10 years away from developing a nuclear weapon." Germany says, "completely unacceptable"... FRANCE firmly condemns... Kanada's Prime Minister tells our House of Commons, "Canada will never accept such hatred, such intolerance and anti-Semitism." and must raise own voice over the sound of mighy wind created by his own balls whooshing up into his body cavity at supersonic speed... thunderclap heard for miles... Sister Massively Opiated worries about family and friends in Israel... Passover bombing of Park Hotel in Netanya in 2002 was but one block from grand-baba's apartment... cousins in Israeli army during first gulf war...
Our Foreign Affairs minister, Pierre Pettigrew said Mr. Ahmadinejad's comments are "all the more troubling" given Iran's nuclear ambitions.... sadly, Mr. Pettigrew has Francophile form of name of "Wormtail" character from latest Harry Potter movie... and character was rat and coward, as well as shapeshifter... I am not superstitious, but I think does not bode well, though he did add, "Canada does not believe that Iran is seeking to develop nuclear power solely to meet its energy needs. Like the United States, Canada believes Iran is secretly trying to develop a nuclear weapons program and that it should be brought before the United Nations Security Council." Das! Duh? (am so embarrassed as Kanadjian and beg all friends to south to not lump us all together - not all Kanadjians allow brains to freeze each winter - or in fear - thus becoming mushy in spring).
Kapitalist paper notes "Critics charge Mr. Martin with not reacting strongly enough, saying he should call for UN sanctions in Iran. "Canada has signalled to Iran that there will be no consequences for threatening and inciting a holocaust," said Alastair Gordon, president of the Canadian Coalition for Democracies (is good group - urge Amerikan friends to visit site to see that all Kanadjians are not morons waiting to be blown up - http://www.canadiancoalition.com/
... and yes, there are still men in Kanada named Alastair). "Will Canada recall our ambassdor from Tehran and send the Iranian ambassador back with a message that Canada wants no relationship wiht such a regime?"
Sister Massively Opiated wants to know why her own country is not recalling all troops deployed on UN "peacekeeping" missions, and building up her county's military? Ahhhh... Sun is finally coming above horizon for short period... time for more kava. Sister is also hoping Amerikan friends will forgive us, as Kapitalist paper also indicates "The majority of Americans no longer consider Canada a close ally, according to a poll released yesterday by the Association for Canadian Studies. The poll... discovered that only 48% of Americans surveyed view Canada as a close ally, down from 73% in 1997. Thirty-seven per cent called Canada friendly, while 2% considered Canada an enemy of the United States (cringeing). And yet, we have Kanadian Komrades like Michael Ignatieff - see included article below... cannot provide working link... he is Akademic and human rights scholar, but not politically or commonsensically retarded, and believes we have right to protect ourselves and to fight back... Not all Kanadjians are soft. I hope profile of decent Kanadjian will be pleasant surprise for Amerikan friends - particularly his comments on liberal fear of self-defense being labelled facist, and belief in right of US and other democracies to defend themselves... do not agree with all his POV's, but interesting person.

Michael Ignatieff's corner office at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government is uncharacteristically tidy. Most academics' desks, tables, and even floors, are decorated with piles of books and papers.
Then again, Michael Ignatieff is not most academics.
He is a successful novelist, journalist and book author. His specialty is human-rights issues, but he tackles many other topics as well.
"I don't like to be called a public intellectual. That term gives me the creeps. It's pompous. It's European," he said last week. "I'm a writer and a teacher. I come from a line of teachers."
Ignatieff traces his roots to Russia and Canada, both of which he has turned into objects of study. In the 1980s, he wrote a successful book called Russian Album about his family on his father's side. He is now about to embark on a two-year leave of absence from Harvard to write a book about his Canadian roots.
His move back home to Toronto, after decades of absence, has led a few disenchanted Canadian Liberals to hail him as Paul Martin's successor. Some speculate he will run in 2006. But Prof. Ignatieff isn't willing to comment either way.
In January, he will take up his duties as the Chancellor Jackman Visiting Professor in Human Rights Policy at the University of Toronto. He will also work on completing Ocean to Ocean, a book about his famous great grandfather, George Munro Grant, who was part of the official expedition that crossed the nation to mark the best route for a national railway.
Prof. Ignatieff's father, George, was born in St. Petersburg in 1913, the youngest son of Count Paul Ignatieff, Tsar Nicholas II's last minister of education. George became a Rhodes Scholar, then came to Canada and rose through the ranks as a Cold War diplomat and then a U of T Chancellor.
Growing up in Toronto, Prof. Ignatieff attended the tony Upper Canada College, then the University of Toronto, followed by Harvard University, where he earned a PhD in History. He taught at the University of British Columbia for three years until 1978, then left Canada for Cambridge University as a Senior Fellow at King's College, until finally ending up back at Harvard.
Prof. Ignatieff's re-entry to leadership-starved Canada became highly publicized in March, when he delivered the keynote address to the Liberal convention in Ottawa. But his message was neither Liberal nor even American liberal. That was somewhat predictable -- for the man has become the Cold Warrior of the human rights movement and has gotten into some dust-ups internationally as a result."Liberals [in the American sense] can't bring themselves to support freedom in Iraq lest they seem to collude with neoconservative bombast," Ignatieff wrote in The New York Times Magazine on the occasion of the recent Iraqi election. "All this makes you wonder when the left forgot the proper name for people who bomb polling stations, kill election workers and assassinate candidates. The right name for such people is fascists."
In his 2004 book, The Lesser Evil, he opens with: "When democracies fight terrorism, they are defending the proposition that their political life should be free of violence. But defeating terror requires violence. It may also require coercion, deception, secrecy and violation of rights."
"Liberal societies cannot be defended by herbivores," he adds. "We need carnivores to save us."
Most notorious was a May 2004 piece in The New York Times Magazine, in which he argued in favour of certain types of torture: "Permissible duress might include forms of sleep deprivation that do not result in lasting harm to mental health or physical health, together with disinformation and disorientation (like keeping prisoners in hoods) that would produce stress."
He also supported the U.S. intervention in Iraq and the proposed missile defence shield, both of which the Liberals rejected. To further underscore his policy differences, he told the Liberals in March to spend more money on defence and to recognize that we live next door to "the primary target of global terrorism."
To be fair, Prof. Ignatieff has also been consistently critical of the United States on certain issues, such as its permissive attitude toward human-rights violations when they are committed by allies, and the country's enormous wealth inequality.
Such refreshing heterodoxy likely disqualifies Ignatieff from the parochial and stultified Canadian political scene. But it certainly guarantees that during his stay in Canada, whether long or short, he will breathe fresh air into our stale discourse by at least giving credit to the Americans where credit is due.

What is the difference between, say, the Holocaust and the other human tragedies that occured throughout human history, from the Armenians, Chinese, Russians.... who all perished under one form of tyrrany or another?
Correct answers to that question will receive a wealth of wisdom.
Here are some differences between the Holocaust and other government-directed mass murders:
A) The Nazis believed in "nature" and the Communists believed in "nurture". That is, the Nazis mainly relied on eugenics theories in an attempt to create a pure people, while the Communists mainly relied on socialism in an attempt to create a pure people. The Nazis went with biology and the Communists went with environment. People find biological discrimination the most odious kind -- whether for murder, or for that matter, simply being fired.
B) Nazi victims were targeted as a distinct ethnic class (Jews); i.e., a group of people was collectively murdered. Human nature being what it is, we are generally more upset when our group, our religion, and especially our family is targeted -- which is why Jews (and also Armenians, though probably to a lesser extent) have not forgotten.
Also, look at how the Chinese are the angriest not at Mao, but at the Japanese. Mao killed more Chinese than did the Japanese, but group loyalties come first. For a more contemporary example, look at how Al Sharpton and the Progressive Community save their most furious responses for when a black is killed by a white or a cop -- although far more murdered blacks are killed by other blacks.
C) The utopian-sounding goals of socialism can sound attractive to civilized people, while Nazi goals can never be defended. To illustrate, compare East German propaganda with Nazi propaganda. Hitler knew how to work a crowd only if it was his crowd. To this day, communists know how to make themselves sound appealing to others.
D) Without defending labor camps, there is still a difference (on a relative scale) between sentencing people to labor camps where they will likely die and immediately herding them into gas chambers where they will defintely die.
Dear Comrade Spiro Agnew:
Point "D" is interesting, I could've sworn there were mass graves filled with millions of innocent murder victims (and I do mean actual murder victims, not "worked to death" in labor camps) all over the Soviet Union, Cambodia, Vietnam, Cuba, N. Korea, China (fill in the blank with any communist country). I guess the nazis used state of the art Mercedes brand engines to gas the folks and commies just used old fashioned bullets and beatings to massacre their millions. Yeah, in fact, I could sworn that before the Ministry of Information deemed it an untruth - that over 100 million innocent people were executed by communist governments for no reason whatsoever other then the paranoia and/or ethnic intolerance of the Party Leaders. But now it is untrue I suppose. . . only Hitler murdered people. . . this makes sense now; that is why it is alright to wear a "Viva Guevara" t-shirt and not a "Heil Hitler" t-shirt. Seriously - I doubt you meant it this way, but your post seems to suggest commies never actually gunned people down purposely, or tortured them then murdered them. . .
Also - is it that you say that all the Germans in the late thirties and forties were "uncivilized" and therefore somehow uniquely susceptible to the "spell" Hilter put on them? That really cannot be put forth as it suggests that it could never happen again, and it definitely could. It suggests that the German people of that specific time were basically morons who could be swayed to do anything. The problem with your post is that those Germans were actually quite intelligent - I'd actually state they were extremely intelligent as they invented a flurry of cutting edge devices with both civilian and military applications during the Third Reich. But the combination of the hard times and Hitler's charisma is what drove them to commit the atrocities that they did (although I do believe that there were some in the Third Reich kept ignorant of the Holocaust - I mean - if you were Hitler, why would you want that to be common knowledge??!).
This is the biggest fallacy of WWII history that they teach in schools - that all the German people of those specific decades just happened to be evil and thus they all just couldn't help but put millions to death with relish. A worse smear on history was rarely posited, because this actually suggests that the German people of the 30s and 40's were just zombies and the Holocaust could thus never occur again. It is that type of ignorance and indolent obliviousness that is fertile ground for such a despot to rise again - and I mean anywhere in the world, not just in Germany. Hell - in fact I'd go out on a limb here and counter basic world opinion of the French as peaceful diplomats; I'd say today's France is a near perfect place for a new Hitler to quickly rise to power. Think about the current situation there for a minute.
Besides - unemployment and inflation not only stopped but did an immediate reverse in numbers under Hitler and the standard of living rose astronomically under Hitler - considering people were using wheel barrows full of cash to buy a loaf of bread just prior to his rise to power. That is very attractive to most people - even with the racism (sadly can be said of alot of people). But without the obvious racism, I challenge you to find me a person who wouldn't elect such a person to power who produces such results; in fact such a politician (again subtracting the racism and murder of course) would be deemed a "humanitarian" for actually lowering human suffering.

Chistka Counselor...This is the biggest fallacy of WWII history that they teach in schools - that all the German people of those specific decades just happened to be evil and thus they all just couldn't help but put millions to death with relish. A worse smear on history was rarely posited, because this actually suggests that the German people of the 30s and 40's were just zombies and the Holocaust could thus never occur again...
Dearest Chistka Counselor,
An interesting argument, but the bottom line will always be that when good men do nothing, evil with prevail (to paraphrase). There were many in Germany who knew precisely what was going on (just as they did in Poland... what did they think was happening with those train-loads full of human cattle and those big smoke stacks?!?), but who for the purposes of their own survival kept quiet... those who fled... those who were just following orders... Pope Benedict XIV was in the Hitler Youth (but then so were all children his age at that time)...
What did the Catholic church give up in 1933 for the guarantee of its rights and privileges (and what did it know later and ignore, despite the many Catholic Righteous Gentiles, both of the clergy and the lay people who died along with Jews in the gas chambers for dissenting, or who survived and aided Jews - some of Javier's family were hidden by Catholics in Poland during the war, including his grandmother and her sister, and their nephew.... they survive today because people wouldn't stand by idly and watch them die and he is with me today because of that courage)?
What did Chamberlain know when he returned to England clutching his scrap of paper and saying "peace in our time"? What did Edward the VIII and Wallace Simpson know? What did Stalin know when he signed the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact in 1939, and did he care? For that matter, when it was known that Jews and other 'undesirables' were being exterminated like animals and 'the voyage of the damned' - a ship of 907 Jewish refugees was turned away from every safe port of call, including my own country's, Cuba and US, with a member of the Canadian Parliament, Frederick Charles Blair (director of the Immigration Branch of the Department of Mines and Resources. He was entrusted with the task of upholding the restrictions on immigration.... an elder in his Baptist Church), saying in Parliament that "None is too many," when it came to allowing Jewish refugees into Canada... what did they know? A f**k of a lot. They knew. And they let it happen, and many helped, while many more stood by.
And it's happening now in North Korea - people are dead in the streets of starvation or in labour camps, or simply killed for their political views. They have orphans in 'institutions' who are literally starved for food, let alone the human touch required for them to develop properly as human beings (the central nervous system of babies and small children requires that they be touched to develop properly, physically, emotionally, intellectually and psychologically)... hidden video smuggled out by North Korean dissidents who swim back and forth across the river into China to pass along the footage they've shot to people who get it out to the world, indicates that children who have escaped from these state 'orphanages' tell stories of being looked after as best as possible by older children - six and seven year olds looking after babies in an attempt to keep them alive - and forming family units to make up for those they've lost - their parents incarcerated in work camps or dead. And many die of starvation and neglect in these orphanages, not to mention those that commit suicide by throwing themselves out of barred windows they can easily fit through because they are so thin. What does it take for a five year old child to knowingly end his or her life? And those are only the children, and that is only one country. And there are people in the world who choose to know, and people in the world who choose not to think on it but could know if they decided to invite that kind of horror into their consciousness and their conscience.
In another part of the Cube, Rich333, in an argument for privatizing policing, asked me if I thought the state would protect my interests and my safety. I don't think so. I think the shit could hit the fan at any second... and I think that the state - any state, any government - will not necessarily protect me or my interests. I know this because I'm a Jew, raised on information about not just the Shoah (Holocaust) but all the Holocausts that continue to happen in the world, whether it's in Rwanda or the Sudan. It's why I can look after myself when the shit does hit the fan, and I've made sure that I can. I joke about libertarianism, and survivalism, but it's not really all that funny... it's too possible, all the time.
Paranoid in Kanada
In Highest Regards, Massively Opiated:
I knew this was a subject very important to you - and knew you'd want to get in on this one. I agree with what you have said 100%. Although I think that maybe you have slightly misunderstood my points. I wasn't apologizing for nazis in any way shape or form. Merely pointing out that Spiro Agnew seemed to suggest that the German people of the 30's and 40's were all zombie killers - a freak happening, and to me, that is a dangerous misinterpretation, for it suggests that another Holocaust could never happen. I say differently - I say it could easily happen again and that most of mankind - even in this day and age are very capable of doing the very same thing all over again. It is dangerous to say that those Germans were all demons from hell so of course they killed millions of Jews. When in fact you had some people who knew exactly what was occurring, others knowing some of what was occurring and still others knowing nothing of the Holocaust as it was occurring. This means that though 2/3rds of the population probably didn't know a mass extermination was taking place, that the 1/3rd was able to pull it off for various reasons - right in front of world view - and yes, I do believe that many countries around the world knew what was happening and did nothing about it for a number of years.
Just know that I agree with what you wrote completely, but that Agnew had some details dangerously wrong. Not only what I mentioned above, but he also suggested that communists never intentionally executed people but rather, they merely sent them to forced labor camps. This is ridiculous on the face of it.
And he also said that "civilized" people could still accept communism. My opinion is that no educated, rational person would accept communism any more then they would facism because it always leads to the same result - both of these "isms" result in mass graves and the most ruthless vile creatures heading the government and oppressing/exploiting their own people because the field is fertile ground for only the most ruthless to ascend to power under those two extreme systems where totalitarianism is the end result.
I certainly don't claim to know what the Holocaust was personally - as neither I nor my family had anything to do with it either as victim or aggressor - just as my family had nothing to do with slavery here in America. But I do know the lessons of history in these areas and am weary of anyone suggesting that no one would ever buy into fascism ever again. I feel directly opposite. I feel the world today is ripe for another facist dictator - or communist - either way - it's bad for humanity. For whatever reason Agnew saw it as one far better then the other - basically legitimizing communism to the point where kids wearing Che Guevara shirts are not the equal of someone wearing a Hitler shirt. I don't believe that in any sense. I know you hold a special hatred for Hitler then anyone else - but the fact is, communists hate Jews as well - and you know the Soviet Union track record with the Jews as well as I do. And the fact is, whether Agnew knows it or not, a hundred million more died under the hammer and sickle then the swastika, if only because the Third Reich lasted so few years compared to communism in force since 1917.
Also - is it just me - or is it bizarre that the main reason the Allies entered WWII against Germany was because they invaded Poland when, after Germany was defeated, we simply allowed that b*stard Stalin to do the very same thing - grab up all of Eastern Europe. Why is one master better then another? What kind of crap is that? After we decimated nazi Germany we should have done as our General Patton suggested and obliterated the Soviet Union right then and there. That was our golden opportunity to squash extremism once and for all. But no - that damn Truman just let Stalin have all of Eastern Europe and part of the Middle East, which, in my opinion, has set the stage for today's nightmare. Then - after we let them have all those vast expenses of land Hitler once had his sites on, then we let them have the atomic bomb. It is insane. Totally insane. And it led to miserable consequences and untold millions massacred under that damn hammer and sickle and all the other little communist hells that sprung up under the hammer and sickle's watchful eye.
I could go on and on about this subject. But in the end - it is what it is and we have to deal with the problem confronting us today. Yielding to scum that cut off heads is no better then yielding to swastika wavers with gas chambers in their back yard. The people of the world who call for appeasing Al Qaeda will get their just desserts - more human misery, needless death and massive oppression. It cannot be allowed to grow. If it does - my guess is another Hitler will rise up in racist Western Europe with the excuse of fending off the extremist muslim scum while starting up another hell in that region of the world.
People like Agnew say another Hitler could never happen, and I say differently. People say just give the head cutters what they want and I say that is total horsesh*t. We - the freedom loving people of the world who believe in true equality need to decimate those intolerant hateful murderers the same way we did with Hitler. Those types of people only respect and understand one thing. Massive unrelenting force. And my only problem with George W. Bush is that he doesn't use even more force against those sub-human scum. (well - securing our border would be nice as well). Soon the head cutting freaks will have the bomb themselves - and then I wonder what it will take to defeat them.

You make the point of perfection here: "it is the responsibility of those who see evil to do something about it rather than ignore it, even if it puts their own lives at risk. We make the world we live in, and cannot blame others if we stand by while it goes to shit."
This is what we all must understand and accept as our duty. Here we have people cutting off heads because they don't like women or freedom, because they have their narrow and backward view of what is right and wrong, and won't tolerate anything other then the strict and narrow rules of insanity they deem as truths at any given moment. And what it really is to them is total and complete rule over the world - just as in Hitler's instance, and just as in Lenin, and in Stalin's instance. These people are animals. Animals pure and simple. People who would do these things for power are wealth - they are shit and need to be flushed.
As there were Neville Chamberlains in the time of Hitler saying we can appease the monsters - we can "give them what they want and they will leave us alone" - so we have the Sean Penns and the Michael Moores in our current time.
None of us can afford to be fooled by these liars for self gain. Penn and Moore are the worst sort of dung at the bottom of the scum pond. They say that Iraq was a peaceful place of kite flying children and Bush is Hitler simply because they know that a great percentage of the population will listen to them and raise them quickly to a higher status in their Hollywood ghetto of ignorance, plastic and phoniness.
It is our duty as Americans (and yes, Kanadians, Massively Opiated) to fend off these monsters in our midst before they assume a level of power we cannot attack in the manner we currently are. Instead we will be forced underground - and life will will take on a survivalist quality that none of us can allow.
Hillary wants this shit on our shores - here in America. It is our duty to stop her by all legal means possible. Shut that communist bitch down - and lets not allow anyone else to slip alongside her on the sly either. It could be that she is the decoy and the Demokrats will slip someone else in there "more moderate". Watch this crap intensely. It is painful at times, but necessary. If we don't - if we fall asleep at the wheel it will take decades - possibly centuries to overcome as we saw with the Soviet Union. Fight these animals every chance you get and we will all remain free. Ben Franklin said:
"We must all hang together or assuredly we will all hang separately."
We must defeat these radical nuts. And if anyone out there thinks I am overreacting or alarmist - simply look into the faces of Howard Dean - Hillary Rodham Clinton - Teresa Heinz, James Carville. . . etc. These people would definitely take their fight to the next step - look at what they have done - tried to rig the 2000 election by throwing out mail-in ballots in Florida from proud, patriotic American soldiers. . . by calling the election in Florida in 2000 before it was anywhere near over thereby driving away Republicans from the polls who figured it was pointless, to then trying to "recount" the ballots with their "hanging chad" BS and actually registering the dead and felons to vote. Then they had the parting shot of claiming that it was the Republicans who were denying the "colored" vote. No. We deny the dead and the felons the right to vote in America. Sorry - dead can't vote anywhere but Cuba or Iran. If you don't care for that rule - please - move to one of those countries where the dead have a voice and your despot reflects your kook views. Leave us to our capitalist, democratic "hell".
And that is how these power mad freaks get by as they do - by lying and cheating every step of the way. They can fool alot of people that way - most people are busy with work, family, friends. . . living - to bother investigating all the layers of shit heaped upon us by these game show host losers. But they obviously cannot fool us Comrades of The Cube. We need to realize this - realize that we do have power that can be weilded and that we have to stand up and influence everyone we possibly can - wake them up to the madness that is going on behind the scenes. Raise as much shit as you can and throw up; as many blockades as possible so that these people are soundly defeated. I know here in America we beat them well in 2000 and 2004 - though as I said, 2000 was close as hell due to their lies and trickery. They can push Hillary in their in 2008 if we fall asleep and allow it.
And Sister Massively Opiated - you too can attack your left in Kanada. It is harder for you - and Americans take note: obviously because in Canada you people did fall asleep for too long and allowed the animals to take control. Fight them with everything you have. Expose their lies. That's all we have to do as freedom loving people - because we are on the side of right, of tolerance, of freedom, and ultimately happiness. It is actually easier because we are on the side of right. A bit hard because they don't fight fair - they fight with lies, stealth, and intrigue. Expose them for the frauds they are. Talk to everyone you can, write letters to newspapers, do anything possible to shut them the hell up once and forever.
We joke here about the Soviet Union - but it can rise up again and will - even here in America - if we fall asleep and let those insidious bastards lull us with their lies and promises. Be vigilant - let's beat their ass (yeah, "ass"; look at the symbol of their lame Party) soundly in 2006, 2008. . .every day we are above ground. Because unlike Demokrats - us freedom loving people aren't allowed to vote once we're dead.

Thank you so much Komrade Massively Opiated! I love my country so much - and I've seen plenty of other countries so I know how much freedom, tolerance, and opportunity to rise that we enjoy here - and how so many take it for granted or don't even have the knowledge or sense enough to realize it. And how the world press (ours included) make America out to be Nazi Germany. Well - thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
And I mean it - freedom isn't free - though we may not all be soldiers in the Armed Forces, we can still play a major part in kicking communist, extremist ass. Do everything you can Glorious Komrades and come to the aid of your country. I've been around the world - and I can definitely report back: it is scary as hell. Love your country - serve it well so that your kids, and kids a million years from now will know the happiness and freedom that we do. Star and Stripes Forever! (and Maple Leaf! It is red after all. . . like our red states. . . right?! Ahem.)
Aw man! My applause from Sister Massively Opiated was purged!!! She put this mega cool applause track on her post to my post. I guess she read my Star Wars review! Heh. . . Bummer! The purge counselor just got some purgin'! NYET!!!
The Man is keepin' me down - laws yes. . . lord have mercy. . . .I have miles to go before I sleep. . . Swing Low, Sweet Chariot - Comin' For to Carry Me Home. . .

and this goes out to premier betty i would really be careful with what i say on this site you never do know who you could be speaking with of coarse,..the authorties might be very interested in your above statement perhaps you do like the smell of inmates,...
Imagine a world where the victim rolls over and sanctions their victimhood.
Imagine all the people living life in peace.
And while we're at it, imagine how much more peaceful the United States would be if we didn't have any police around causing all kinds of mayhem. What a simpler place this world would be.
Facinating read Red Square. Oh how times change... or maybe not....
