Intelligentaindigena Novajoservo: Castro: US is still a 'killing machine'
While we hear of complaints about bias against conservatives on NowPublic, the conservative party and it's equally criminal-minded and vociferously apologetic base still refuses to call a spade a spade.
Last week ended with a startiling revelation of habitual and illegal United States governmental misconduct via its chief intelligence organisation and this week begins with one of the greatest violations known in the political world. When governments are willing to offer up their agents and operatives in the name of political expediency, we all have a serious problem. Well, we all had a serious problem when thousands of Africans in this country (I'm not fogetting the poor White folks either) were allowed to die in the long-Confederated South without a murmur of authentic outrage and anger from White America, but who's counting the deaths of Black people when profits are to be made by Bush and Co.? I mean, that would be just un-American, wouldn't it?
I would suppose it would be un-American to point out that "Scooter" Libby was given a get out of jail free pass from the Commander-in-Thief and his board of thugs in and out of government office. I'm also going to spew some more un-American ideas by suggesting that Dick "The Shooter" Cheney is guilty of violating the national security of the United States by facilitating the outing of a Central Intelligence Agency operative which not only disrupted whatever operations she had running at the time, but more than likely led to teh killings of several of her compatriots. The general public may never know the complete story, but suffice it to say that America is no stronger than it was when the U.S. elections were first hijacked in 2000 and again in 2004.
Is it un-American to say that the Bush administration, with the willing and eager help of a stupified and hyper-sensitive conservative American population deathly afraid of its own shadow, has run the country into the ground? He has done for America the exact same thing to every single company he has ever been given the keys to the executive washroom, he ruined them.
But in a democracy, (is it communist to use that word, I'm not so sure anymore) it si the people who allow their leaders to kill wantonly in search of personal profit and political advantage. If one is to believe the rhetorical guff coming forth from Coulter, O'Reilly and the other blemishes that account for American mainstream media, no other nation enjoys such direct people-power.
If that is true, then we are all damnned. My only question is, are you willing to go to the Christian Hell for George W. Bush?
If the conservatives here on NowPublic want to that's their right to object to truth and accountability in government and social policy, but it is not obligated under this same system that they swear by their version of God and three other members of the Halliburton executive board of directors to be so free that I agree to eternal damnation in order to share their cognitive dissonance.
Conservatives and Americans in general, strictly in the socio-political sense, are the most juvenile in the United States. They cry about everything that assaults their sense of one-upmanship and superiority and are violently repressive even in the face of their own errors. After this last round of conservative governmental malfeasance, any whining from the right to the far-right, which is starting to sound more like the extreme-left day by damn day, about unfairness and liberal bias in the American system shoud be accorded the very same respect and consideration one bestows upon bathroom tissue.

HAVANA - Fidel Castro said Sunday that the U.S. government continues to be a "killing machine" after revelations that nearly 50 years ago it tried to use American mobsters to kill him with poison pills.
"The empire has created a real killing machine made up not only of the CIA and its methods," the Cuban leader wrote in the latest of his nearly daily essays, published Sunday in the Communist Youth newspaper Juventud Rebelde.
President Bush "has constructed powerful and expensive superstructures of intelligence ... that lead to war, injustice, hunger and death everywhere on the planet," Castro wrote.
CIA documents made public last week described the agency's recruitment of a former FBI agent in August 1960 to use mobsters and poison pills to kill Castro. Information about the plot was among hundreds of pages of CIA internal reports, known as "the family jewels."
The plan was scrapped after the failed CIA-sponsored Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in April 1961, and U.S. authorities retrieved the poison pills.
