"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Mass Graves

"Iran has dug mass graves in which to bury U.S. troops in case of any American attack on the country, a former commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard said."

Assuming for a moment that this propaganda* has even a hint of a shred of truth, how does it begin to compare to the massive death already wrought throughout the region by forces of freedom and liberty?

I know, I know. Truth has nothing to do with it. Agitprop like this serves the purpose of associating Iran with "mass graves," and the US with Israel in saving the rest of us from mass grave digging, nuclear bomb seeking, homosexual stoning, monolithically evil and Islamic anti-Jewish Iran.
