Lebanon Under Siege: Dahr Jamail Reports from Beirut on How Israel Air Strikes Have Caused a Humanitarian Crisis for Hundreds of Thousands of Refugees
Democracy Now

The death toll from Israel’s attack on Lebanon is approaching four hundred – almost all civilians. More than one thousand have been wounded and an estimated 900,000 have been displaced from their homes. This weekend, ground troops seized the Lebanese town of Marun al-Ras. Israeli officials believe they have approval from the United States to keep attacking Lebanon for at least another week. We go to Lebanon to speak with independent journalist Dahr Jamail

Congress Fuels South Asian Nuclear Arms Race


Think Progress
Excerpt: Congress Fuels South Asian Nuclear Arms Race
As Congress is marching in lock step to approve the administration’s sweetheart deal that would allow India to rapidly ramp up its nuclear bomb production to about 50 new weapons each year, news comes that Pakistan is racing to match the Indian capability.
The Washington Post reports on new satellite photos that reveal construction of a plutonium production reactor that should enable Pakistan to punch out 12; surprise 50 bombs a year.
It is not too late for Congress to stop this developing nuclear arms race in South Asia. All they have to do is approve an amendment that conditions the U.S.-India deal on an Indian agreement not to make any more material for weapons. This was part of the deal originally sought by Bush administration officials, but they caved in to India demands and dropped the idea.
Rep. Howard Berman (D-CA) says, The Bush Administration conceded on almost every major point in negotiating this agreement with India. Even worse, the Administration essentially ignored the concerns of its own nonproliferation experts, and kept Congress in the dark until after the agreement was concluded.
He and other legislators are trying to get amendments to the deal that would enable the U.S. to expand cooperation with India without allowing India to go on a nuclear weapons binge. One amendment would require India to halt production of fissile material, the main component needed to make nuclear weapons, in exchange for greater nuclear cooperation with the United States. A second important amendment would prevent India from transferring nuclear enrichment technology to other countries.
The Arms Control Association has more.

U.S. soldier among 34 killed in Iraq

AP
Excerpt:
BAGHDAD, Iraq – U.S. and Iraqi soldiers captured six members of an alleged “death squad” in Baghdad on Tuesday, hoping to quell the rampant sectarian violence dividing the capital. Attacks elsewhere in Iraq left at least 34 people dead — including an American soldier. In Washington, President Bush met Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki at the White House to discuss the deteriorating security situation. He believes and I believe that there needs to be more forces inside Baghdad who are willing to hold people to account,” Bush said during a joint news conference.
Later in the day, gunmen attacked a police checkpoint in Dujail, about 50 miles north of Baghdad, and ambushed a sport utility vehicle belonging to a private security company in north Baghdad, killing eight people.


Political News: OK Senator Says Global Warming Believers Nazis….50% Americans Believe Iraq had WMDs….Mr. Bill Goes To Conn.

Sen. Inhofe Compares People Who Believe In Global Warming To ‘The Third Reich’


AP
Excerpt:Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is the nation’s most prominent global warming denier. He famously declared that global warming is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.” Now, he’s taken the argument a step further. In an interview with Tulsa World, Inhofe compared people who believed global warming was a problem to Nazis:

In an interview, he heaped criticism on what he saw as the strategy used by those on the other side of the debate and offered a historical comparison.

“It kind of reminds . . . I could use the Third Reich, the big lie,” Inhofe said.

H.L.s Take:Any time anyone doesn’t agree with them, we are something bad, this time its Nazi’s.
Nazis for believing Scientists and not them. GOP rule number 1. always blame the other guy for being what you are, even if he is not. Commandant Inhofe understands that very well

50 percent of U.S. says Iraq had WMDs


Washington Times
Excerpt:Half of Americans now say Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the United States invaded the country in 2003 — up from 36 percent last year, a Harris poll finds. Pollsters deemed the increase both “substantial” and “surprising” in light of persistent press reports to the contrary in recent years.
The survey did not speculate on what caused the shift in opinion,

H.L.s Take: They survey did not speculate? Anyone who reads the comments section of this site knows. The right wing spin machine is pumping out the bogus story that WMDs were found. Never mind that they were just a bunch of old shells. The Kool aid drinkers were waiting for any lie they can latch onto. Now they know its bulls**t, but they would rather lie then admit they were wrong. More on this later. I could do a whole story on this subject.

CT-Sen: Bill Clinton’s visit

Daily Kos
Excerpt:
The cynic might say that Bill Clinton is going to Connecticut, despite being trashed by Lieberman during the impeachment saga, to protect a fellow member of the elitist establishment’s insider’s club. They may say that the DLC called in the biggest favor it can offer Lieberman (its patron saint) — a visit by a former popular president. They may try to find a tortured explanation of why this helps Hillary.

B. Clinton’s visit may have been arranged by the DLC (didn’t they have some sort of “annual conference” this past weekend? Did anyone care?), but what it tells me is that Bill is a far bigger man than Lieberman ever was or can be.

Despite being on the withering receiving end of Lieberman’s sanctimonious public screeds during the impeachment saga, on the floor of the Senate AND in television studios all over the place, Clinton is willing to come to the senator’s aid. He could’ve held a grudge and none would think less of him.

Instead, he repays Lieberman’s backstabbing with kindness.

So I actually respect Bill for doing this one event for Lieberman. In a funny way it makes Lieberman look even smaller, pettier, and pathetic than he already does.

H.L.s Take:
My sentiments exactly. Lieberman should have felt ashamed of himself for doing what he did to Bill. He is such a morally bankrupt bastard that he stabs his own party in the back and praises the republicans every chance he can get. However the cynic could also say that The Bush’s and the Clinton’s are all in bed. Togther they rule the world. This is why I think that Hilary will win the democratic nomination, and will run against Jeb Bush. If either one of them wins, then gets re-elected in 2012, that would be 36 straight years with either a Bush, or a Clinton in the White House. Of course if Jeb wins, then Bill Clinton was just an 8 year aberration. Its going to be a fun filled next 2 years.

The Elephant in the Room How Big a Problem Is President Bush for the GOP?


Washington Post
Excerpt:
No modern political party has weathered a midterm election with a president as low in the polls as George W. Bush.

It is a reality of midterm elections that the party holding the White House often suffers big losses even if the president is popular. President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s approval rating was at 57 percent in 1958, but Republicans still lost 48 seats in the House.

The best any party has done when its president has dipped below 50 percent was in 1978. That fall, President Jimmy Carter’s approval rating was 49 percent and the Democrats lost 15 House seats — exactly the number Democrats need this year to win back the chamber.

Peace prize winner ‘could kill’ Bush


The Austrailian
Excerpt:
NOBEL peace laureate Betty Williams displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit yesterday, lashing out at US President George W.Bush during a speech to hundreds of schoolchildren.

Campaigning on the rights of young people at the Earth Dialogues forum, being held in Brisbane, Ms Williams spoke passionately about the deaths of innocent children during wartime, particularly in the Middle East, and lambasted Mr Bush.
“I have a very hard time with this word ‘non-violence’, because I don’t believe that I am non-violent,” said Ms Williams, 64.

“Right now, I would love to kill George Bush.” Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.

“I don’t know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize, because when I see children die the anger in me is just beyond belief. It’s our duty as human beings, whatever age we are, to become the protectors of human life.”
