Also seeing how the wkik leaks had all sorts of Saudi officials verklempt over the prospect of an Iranian bomb, for about two years.

"

At a a time when even the most liberal elements of the Wafd, espouse deliberately antisemitic commentary, when the expressions of Erdogan, and co, are deliberately whitewashed, I concur with Kirsch, Walt missed the mark, how far will determine if he beats Chomsky for most clueless MIT prof.

"

What exactly did Alana get wrong, CAP can almost always be counted, like IPS was before it, to be on the other side,

"

Forget about politics, Duncan can just gone too far this time,
an interesting detail, where the series could have gone is James Luceno's latest offering, 'Darth Plagius, or as I liketo call it 'Boardwalk Coruscant and Naboo' as Robert Graves might have done it.

"

Yes, that wasn't so amusing, knowing Axelrod's rep,

"

That was witty on Matt's part 'it's not personal, it's just business'

"

Yes the Taliban 'stone people to death' if you're gay or an uncovered woman, but they aren't the enemy

"

Tell me again what is sane about 16 trillion, going on 20 trillion,
about the Sutton/Dillinger bill that didn't address the most obvious ethical/legal questions, about the Chevy Volt, that all models were recalled, about delivering all of North Africa to the Salafi.

"

Well Occam's razor would lean that way, Herr Grosch.

Past history is never indicative of future results, the PKK don't need any encouragement to attack Turkey, neither
does Jundallah v, Iran,

It takes nerve for Reed to laud Syrian freedom fighters right after speakers attacking Obama for backing the Egyptian revolution.
6 hours ago

"

I imagine that Santorum was talking about the insistence on contraception, to the exclusion of all other approaches, I refering to her supposed contradiction between Reid supporting the Syrian resistance re opposition to similar
movements in Egypt and Libya, First Syria has proven to be much more of a foe, and the Salafi have had little to do with the movement

"

Not really, as Quradawi the one who put the fatwa on Sadat, was helming both the Egyptian and Libyan interventions

"

I'm not terribly surprised the agrarian re industrial conflict, Jefferson v, Hamilton,

"

Now I don't say it's impossible that the Mossad contacted Rigi's group, after all we delivered supplies and training to Bel Hadj
and Yumu and company, which will turn out great I'm sure,
but I say it's unlikely.

"

Yes the Mousavian telegram to Khamenei, spoke of this, how they fooled the quartet, Sanger's 'The Challenge' mentioned this in passing, acknowledging that much more of the program was around than the NIE indicated, As it turned out, Asghari was their curveball.

"

There will be no talks, as there were none of note with Iraq, before Osirak, Mark Perry, is doing a good job of proving
excuses for the Pasdaran though.

This looks good, his last novel, Djibouti, was a bit of misfire

No, not surprisingly you miss the point, after Pearl, Berg, Quattrochi, Johnson, Tucker, Mechaca, we're 'confortably
numb' like the song goes to the 'outrage'

"

An interesting take, more of a historical overview, the author relied a good deal on Norwich's tome of Venice;

OT, doesn't the cadaverous German banker?? in HoW, seem like Terry Jones's Python caricature.

Yes the proscriptions really do tarnish his record, Saylor has Sulla saying he handled the tough jobs, the Special Forces of its day, while Marius took the credit.

"

I took a crack at that one, some time ago, an interesting thing about Mayor's account, is that he had met Marius before hand, Saylor's Roman Blood takes Sulla's side of the argument.
