Scott Ritter: The Good American

By Remy Benoit

At Truth Dig, Scott Ritter: The Good American. There are some interesting viewpoints in the comment's on Mr. Ritter's article.

Also, from Jeremy Scahill at The Nation Outsourcing the War. Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army.

From New America Media, Peter Dale Scott and Pacific News Service Homeland Security Contracts for Vast New Detention Camps.

From Bill Moyers at Common Dreams “I’m Harry.”.

From The Star Tribune, Minneapolis-St. Paul David Sarasohn: As in Vietnam, casualties rise in Iraq while U.S. dithers.

Once upon a time, a long time ago, there was a lock out at the school where I was teaching; no contract, no negotiations going on. The local judge ordered the school people and the board members locked in the courthouse until agreement was reached. Might not be such a bad idea for the current situation; no vacations, no home time, 3no hunting, no wood chopping, no nothing until this is ended.

And a thought, off topic, but vital from The New York Times and Bob Hebert at Truthout The Millions Left Out.

I was reading the intro to Senator Mike Gravel's Citizen Power: A People's Platform. from '72. What a breath of fresh air! And it could have been written today. Thanks to him for asking some real questions at the debate. Maybe some real attention should be paid to this man. Gravel 2008.

Finally, Happy Mother's Day to all. While we celebrate Mother's Day, let us think about the dreams moms have for their children. Are we working toward those dreams, or toward heartbreak?

This man, Manuel Valenzuela, thinks the latter. Your views on this position would be interesting. The Army of Good Americans.
