    ...after the hospital visit and for this reason the motorcade went on a side street and passed by a cafe.  His assassin was eating a sandwich there and grabbed the opportunity.  So it was pure synchronicity.  

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

      the war would not have otherwise happened is naive at best and ignores the reasons that the war was inevitable, even though it talks about the reasons for it's inevitability immediately following that statement.

      The parasites were in a feeding frenzy over the spoils of several collapses. That's all there was to it. They were going to fight over the loot and we were going to do the dieing in their never ending quest for more.

      And lest we forget, that war was the direct cause of the next war and that war opened the door for our fascists to rule the world.
