Node Of Evil - Fair And Balanced Reporting

For those who feel the war on terrorism
could use a little "Structural Adjustment".

Hey all, here's something that's vitally important -- the U.N. aid program in Palestine is close to running out of funds. Please take a minute to donate something to help the Palestinian refugees. You can donate here. More information about the program can be found here.

Who We Are: Did you feel left out of the "Axis of Evil"? Do you not have enough WMD's to qualify? Well, fret no more friend, 'cause any rational left- or right-leaning individual who dares disagree with the war on terrorism is a threat to every peace-loving nation! That means us! and that may mean you, too, are qualified to make the Most-of-the-Most-Wanted list. We're here to welcome all who disagree with, or generally dislike, any aspect of the war on terrorism with open arms! Declare yourself an enemy of the state - join the Node Of Evil.

Why join the Node Of Evil? We offer benefits such as a clear conscience and the ability to express your opinion, plus the opportunity to lob a few political hot potatos in the general direction of the White house.

How do you join the Node Of Evil? To join, simply repeat the phrase "I hate the war on terrorism". Yes, it's that simple!

Thought for Friday: I don't think there's any way around it now -- President Bush and his Administration lied to the American people. It sucks to be lied to by your President, even if he may have some good reason for it. I suspect that there are a lot of people who don't care (or are having a bout with cognitive dissonance) because they a.) think Bush is "inspired" and as such would support his actions whether or not he lied, b.) feel the humanitarian case for ousting Saddam is more important to them than the weapons case, or c.) feel that since troops are on the ground in Iraq, questioning the operation is the wrong thing to do right now.

Nevertheless, Bush lied, his advisers lied, and we as a country are going to have to deal with it. This so-called "September Surprise" will mean nothing if there's no outstanding physical evidence of the existence of WMDs. The U.S. case before the U.N. (as stated in resolution 1441) relies on there being physical weapons that posed a threat to the U.S., if none can be produced then the simple fact is the U.S. lied to the U.N. and should be punished accordingly. This is similar to the judge in Alabama who has been ordered to remove the 10 Commandments monument from the foyer in the courthouse. What he's doing is illegal, no matter how you feel about the 10 Commandments. Compliance with the law is a necessary part of being a citizen of the U.S. and, for that matter, the world.
