Israeli border policemen secure a protest against the planned pullout from the Gaza Strip at Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Sycamore Ranch in southern Israel July 27, 2005. The protesters attached signs, with the names of ministers in Sharon's cabinet, to sheep they brought to the demonstration. The sheep are a symbol of what the protesters see as the decision-makers' meekness in failing to challenge the prime minister's plan to evacuate all 21 Jewish settlements in Gaza and four of 120 in the West Bank. The evacuation is slated to get underway in mid-August. REUTERS/Gil Cohen Magen

8CYLINDER : "The station manager shut the transmitter down as I was playing it. He hated it that much." - Jason Forrest/Donna Summer [Irritant, Soniq, Cock Rock Disco]
It's imperialism, stupid : BY NOAM CHOMSKY Americans do not like to think of themselves as aggressors, but raw aggression is what took place in Iraq," national security and intelligence analyst John Prados concluded after his careful, extensive review of the documentary record in his 2004 book "Hoodwinked." Prados describes the Bush "scheme to convince America and the world that war with Iraq was necessary and urgent" as "a case study in government dishonesty ... that required patently untrue public statements and egregious manipulation of intelligence." The Downing Street memo, published on May 1 in The Sunday Times of London, along with other newly available confidential documents, have deepened the record of deceit.
Science Fiction The altering of reports to fit policies is dismaying : Once again a scientific report has been recast for the sake of political expediency and used as the basis for a federal rule that puts industry profit over the health of people and the environment. If that sounds familiar, it's because it has been happening regularly throughout President Bush's tenure. In the most recent case, a government biologist and hydrologist complained that their findings on how cattle grazing damages wildlands were rewritten to produce contrary conclusions. A "significant adverse impact" on wildlife, for instance, somehow became "beneficial to animals." Then the Bush administration announced that based on these rosy findings, it would relax rules that limit grazing on public lands.
