FUNNY THING, SEEING ONCE MORE THE HUGE OIL SPILL IN YESTERDAYS NEWS I WISHED IT WOULD GO SOUTH AND COVER ALL THE ISRAELIAN COAST FROM TOP TO TOE!THEY DID IT, THEY SHOULD TASTE IT!IN GREECE WE ARE HAVING DEMONSTRATIONS EVERY WEEK NOT JUST IN ATHENS BUT ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, WE KEEP OUR TOURISTS INFORMED !)
Indeed the European will only wake up to the Lebanon disaster when the oil-spill will hinder their holiday experiences in Turkey & Greece - ONLY THEN - there will be a big outcry - if it would not be so sad it would be funny. So ignorant and self-interested the lame European self-navel-contemplating became.The population in the is even more lame and lazy then the steadily in deep freeze pace moving EU leaders. Provided they are not disturbed and see wars wank killings only on tv. As soon as the beach in any holiday resort has a oil spot they all turn simultan to berserk-mode.That is indeed a hope.The EU folks are becoming less independent onformed then the Israeli and it seems slowly that the whole society is totally like under sleeping pills - probably someone puts LSD in our drinking water to keep folks on dreams, doozing and stupid all the time...
I have this friend in Canada. He is not a bad person but, when I passed on to him information about the 9/11 truth movement (www.st911.org), what he said went like this: "look, for me the issue is crystal clear. A bunch of bearded terrorists hit the towers and pull them down. The consequences are very serious and I won't accept any other 'outrageous' theory to put the blame on others".I keep wondering why this guy, an eminent scholar and supposedly smart fellow, rejected so strongly a very well based criticism to the 9/11 official history. Again: perhaps fear? But, what is he affraid of?It is hard to remove the soil beneath some people's feet without offering something in exchange. Then, if their country (I mean US) is capable of the most hideus crimes, either alone (as in Iraq and perhaps just around the corner) or in good company (as now in Lebanon), what is left to the Americans? What is left to the 'magnificent' country they were thought they were living in? If we are going to succeed, we need an answer to that. Otherwise, we will never reach their minds and then, we all will be pretty much lost.
I had exactly the same experience with very educated American friends living in Vienna. They are otherwise really good folks.Its not that they are afraid - they are preemptive ignorant. Actually they get aggressive and refuse even to consider having a exchange of thinking off the FOX / CNN highway. They believe so dearly what they are feed to by american media and are obviously genetically unable to question any "official" message they are feed.Remembers me of the folks believing in heroic messages to the NS publication "Der Stürmer" even when Germany was already sinking to ashes.

"Remembers me of the folks believing in heroic messages to the NS publication "Der Stürmer" even when Germany was already sinking to ashes."I am reminded of this too.
