    of who the US has been opposing and the tyrants they install in their place.  Latin America, southeast Asia--it really is all over the globe.  And there's the drug connection that always goes hand in hand with US invasion and occupation.  I wonder how many former women doctors in Iraq are now selling their bodies in Lebanon in a desperate attempt to feed their children.  Statistics would tell us there are likely a few.  It is beyond depressing.

    I recommend that Pinter lecture.  It's a great read--he pulls no punches.  It is a measure of how well controlled the media is that that speech received virtually no coverage, did not even spawn a debate featuring the demonization of one of the great playwrights of the English speaking world.  They didn't even have to bother.

    Good luck.
