      The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.....Martin Luther King '63

      It takes all the technical proficiency our system can provide to make up for the woeful lack of popular support and political savvy of most of the regimes that the West has thus far sought to prop up.........Bernard Fall

      Hi progressive,

      How we treat others is reflected in how we treat ourselves.  If American citizens can be discarded to benefit Oligarchs, Corporations and Banks, why would the same not be true for those overseas?  None of this will ever change until the American people decide to constitute a new government free from the ravages of Greed wrought by TPTB.  Until then, empire will rumble on consuming everything in service of capitalism.  All those in the way will be swept aside.
