    The effects of so many other policies - from the continuing effects of defoliant residues in Southeast Asia to the mass graves still being excavated in Central America

    There's currently dancewater's Cancer rates exploding in Iraq from depleted uranium. And birth defects as well.

    None of which is officially admitted to cause such misery. Whether for those people who live far away, nor for our own forces.

    In  "The Island of Dr Moreau," the 30s version, the animal-men remind themselves every day about their laws. After each one is cited, they say "...that is the law. Are we not Men?"

    Wild as it sounds, can't we try to have laws which decide important things? Or is that impractical?

    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.
