Bush then cooked up some comic-book rhetoric and called Iran, Iraq, and North Korea the “axis of evil” not long after the USA was unable to find and kill bin Laden and friends.� Those nations had nothing to do with the WTC attacks and have no relationship with each other (except for Iran and Iraq hating each other…strange “axis”…their main commonality was having oil deposits that the USA did not control).� My friends and associates in Europe and elsewhere could scarcely believe that Bush was alone on the world stage, mouthing such rhetoric.� Some called it the most embarrassing imperial spectacle since Caligula’s horse.� For all the hypocrisy and corruption in America’s Founding Fathers, at least they could be literate and thoughtful.� Ronald Reagan ably read his cue cards during his presidency, even though he was nearly a vegetable .� Bush could barely string a sentence together.� He was rather proud of his ignorance, and him not even being elected added insult to injury.� Bush tried taking the high moral ground, yet was convicted of drunk driving, sort of took the fifth amendment on whether he used cocaine, and belongs to a secret society that robs graves .� He rather gleefully presided over more executions than any other modern governor, and a fair number were probably innocent.� When one death row convictee’s court-appointed lawyer fell asleep in court, the higher courts ruled it to be a “fair trial,” noting that there was nothing in the Constitution that said the defendant’s lawyer had to be “conscious.” The dictionary de finition of “terrorism” is “a mode of governing, or of opposing government, by intimidation.” [397] � As Edward Herman clearly demonstrated in his The Real Terror Network, the American propaganda system excised that italicized first part of the above definition and thereby defined out of existence the terrorism waged by governments.� In the best tradition of Orwell, the powerful defined terrorism to only mean terrorism by the powerless.� Governing by intimidation is by far the greatest instance of terrorism and always has been.� Terrorism as state policy was refined by the USA a generation ago, particularly by what it did to Southeast Asia during the 1960s and 1970s, and what it did to Latin America, and its terror wars peaked during the 1980s .� Torture was a historical relic until the USA began training the security forces of its Latin American puppets, especially at its School of the Americas at Fort Benning in Georgia.� Latin America security forces were trained in torture and other “counterinsurgency” methods.� American torturers also went abroad to teach their craft. � When returning to their Latin American home nations, the traditional homecoming was to use their new skills to perform heinous atrocities on the local citizenry .� Those activities eve n came into general American awareness with the Iran-Contra Scandal.� Elliott Abrams was a Reagan administration front man, lying to Congress and anybody else who would listen about what happened in Central America during the 1980s.� According to Abrams, the El Salvadoran death squads were free-lance terrorists, not connected to anybody.� All knowledgeable observers knew that those death squad members were El Salvadoran soldiers who simply took off their uniforms when performing death squad duties.� Abrams called America’s El Salvadoran policy a “fabulous achievement.”� Abrams’s record of lying and obfuscation was long and ugly, and it finally caught up with him during the Iran Contra scandal.� As a front man for genocidists, Abrams would have swung from a Nuremberg noose if his services had been rendered for Nazi Germany, but he instead swung a plea bargain, admitted to only some of his less onerous behaviors, received a lesser sentence, and even then, George Bush the First pardoned him soon before leaving office.� The moral fiber of George Bush the Second’s administration quickly became evident when it placed Abrams on its National Security Council, as a human rights advisor.� The School of the Americas has long been known throughout the world as terror central.� Not only that, America has long harbored the world’s deadliest terrorists, such as Cuban exile terrorists, and Orlando Bosch most notoriously. [398] � Not only were such terrorists living in America, the USA's government funded them and even actively protected them from international prosecution, similar to how it protected death camp Nazis after World War II .� If Bush was taken at his word on September 12, 2001, the American military should have been launching missiles at Miami and the White House.� American propagandists have had a challenging job naming terrorists, as the same people were called terrorists one day and freedom fighters the next, depending on which way the political wind blew.� By the dictionary definition, the WTC and Pentagon attacks were terrorism, no doubt about it.� They were heinous atrocities.� However, America’s response to the attacks was also terrorism, and on a much vaster scale.� After Afghanistan served its usefulness as the “trap” for the Soviet Union, America left it to “rot.” [399] � Afghanistan was littered with about ten million land mines.� During the 1990s, thousands of Afghani people died each year from stepping on mines.� The USA did not provide any effort to help rebuild its discarded pawn, so the sudden professed humanitarian concern for the Afghani people after the WTC attacks was ludicrous on its face.� During the years before the WTC attacks, Afghanistan suffered through a horrendous drought and was the world’s most devastated nation.� Even calling it a nation was a misnomer.� Afghanistan was more a collection of villages, warlords, and fundamentalist preachers, with a civil war raging.

This was based upon the fact that while Germany was not unified it did not present nearly the threat that it did as a unified nation. It was frustrating to find that most study materials were mostly geared towards Brazilian Portuguese. Because of its 'Japanese connection' the VOC was able to function with limited export of (Mexican) silver from Europe. However, ‘La Araucana’, about Spain’s conquest of Chile, alludes to the brutality of Spanish colonialism: “they are Chilean… and their tragic stories result from the Spanish presence in the New World. [17] ” Even the Portuguese, although sharing amicable relations with trading partners of different ethnicity, engaged in early forms of slavery by Bandeirantes, forcing African men to work in sugar plantations in newly discovered Brazil. “By the year 1552, African slaves made up 10 percent of the population of Lisbon [18] ”, and this is consistent with their pure mercantilist inclinations.

Children's environments are intensely social, not usually enhanced by large numbers of toys or children's furniture. In fact, they encountered urban centers in West Africa comparable to those back in Europe, governed by elaborate dynasties, organized around apprenticeship-based artistic guilds, and with agricultural systems capable of feeding their large populaces. In the USA, arguably the least reliable mainstream source of information on Israel and the Arab world is the New York Times, which regarding Israel leans probably further to the right than the John Birch Society and the militias do in matters involving America.� Yet, reporting on Israel in the West Coast’s mainstream media is often written by NYT staffers such as Thomas Friedman, William Safire, and others like them.
