Less Obvious Links

My opinions about some things change from time to time, but I never change my mind about the If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations. line being almost the best part of subscribing to the Morning Fix. Every time I read it, I want to post it above my desk.

You have to bring your brain to a reading of this article about the situation in North Korea, but it's worth it.

There are still suspicions that the USofA is using some kind of nuclear weapons in its 'war on terror.' This link isn't about DU, by the way.

According to this article, the Neocons are still running the playground. For what it's worth, let me point out that the USofA has a history of endorsing almost anything and everything Israel does, so Bush's defense of the preemptive strike on Syrian soil isn't any kind of departure from previous USofA policy. Also, supporting Israel's (really, much more justified) use of 'preemptive self-defense' helps to shore up our own recent behavior. It's worth considering just how little Syria's previously vaunted cooperation with the Bush Administration's 'war on terror' is buying them in the long run, though. Nothing lower than a politician who don't stay bought.

There was a big human rights march in Saudi Arabia yesterday. I don't remember seeing that on the front pages of the national USofA media sites, do you? I thought we were all about democracy in the Middle East these days...or maybe that doesn't include democracy in places where the Bush clan has repressive buddies it wasn't our idea. Seriously, this seems to have had a certain amount of Saudi governmental backing, which probably signals another clash between the royal family and the elected government.
