These are the new scripts on the walls of Babylon: فليكن سقوط شارون سقوطاً للصهيونية What was created from lies, and nurtured by lies, must face the destiny of lies, too; Or did their God choose brain-dead mokeys unable to see beyond their sick ego's and their ugly noses ! [sic , Sharon !]

Iraqi Quagmire for The American Empire

I have read many fine articles by Dick Eastman in the newsgroups, here is one of them :

until now I respected the oldman

wants to erase boarders -- i.e., do away with self-governing nations -- relinquishing control to what -- Adam Smith's Invisible Glove on the iron fist of hereditary aristrocracy rule-by-the-worse screw-humanity oligarchy?

What will all those Arab lives taken today by Zionist mass-murderers (who did 9-11) matter 20 years from now?

What will it matter in so many billion years when the sun going red engulfs the earths orbit or when the solar system finally makes it to the black hole drain that the Milky Way is going down?

The matter is that we are hear and now -- human lives matter because we are humans and we value our lives and we are community so we value everyone's lives -- no matter how much ZIonist hollywood and Zionist educational intellectual-emotional-and-societal dumb-down may seek to darken our minds and souls -- it matters because the means used to effect change
continue as fatal flaws within the change effected -- it matters because evil is in every heart and must be overcome by love and intelligence and all-conquering gentleness -- that it impossible to render the universal human condition better by "killing all the bad people" "all the nationalists" etc. -- because nations not dominated by investment bankers, i.e., true republics by and for the people are the only means of having real community, real freedom, real equality of opportunity, real rule by the servants of all rather than merchant banking houses and the slavish no-alternative "yess-men" who do their bidding against their brother man.

What did Wolrd War One matter which killed off the most promising generation of educated middle-class in history, while the deviant elites strutted around in cool uniforms, speeches were made and financiers agents like Bernard Baruch ensured the masters of the corporations and high-finance war-profiteering made out like the super bandits they are? It mattered -- what could the mind and spirit of man have done had it not been squandered on the wars and depressions engineered for the selfish personal gain of these monsters still at large?

I'm with Solveiga -- and the old man is just the wicked the Old Man we all have and which we all must put down to before we fully belong to the community Mankind.

Or was "oldman" being cosmically sarcastic -- in which case for me it "worked."
