Itching for a fight

According to a memo that has recently surfaced, Tony Blair and Dumbya sat down in a room about two months before Saddam was overthrown and talked about how to go to war.

Or, put more accurately, how to provoke one.

Bush apparently suggested that US airplanes be painted in UN colors and then flown over Iraq, in hopes that one would be shot down in violation of Iraq's treaties with the United Nations.

What a sneaky fucker.

Of course, the option of a straightforward assassination of the Iraqi leader was also discussed. No surprise there, although you'd assume that our experiences with Castro would put this kind of thinking in perspective.

Bush apparently went on to say that he thought it "unlikely that there would be internecine warfare between the differing religious and ethnic groups" in Iraq after the fall of Saddam. Looks like Georgie's crystal ball had a glitch that day, no?

I can't say that I'm at all surprised that GW would be plotting of ways of provoking Iraq into going to war. His administration has long stated that regime change in the country has always been high on their list of foreign policy priorities. Well, Dumbya finally got his way.

And look where it's gotten him.

And us.

For years, sound has been used as a method of torture:

Nile - Black Seeds Of Vengeance
(more vicious black metal from the Egypt junkies)

Doubting Thomas - The Infidel
(apparently too spooky to be included on a Skinny Puppy record)

David Byrne - Forestry
(Jack has his way with Talking Heads head)

Fred Astaire - The Astaire Story
(two discs of singing and crooning)

Louis Armstrong - This Is Jazz 1
(Satchmo blow blow blow)
