More from CN&R

The E-word

From Ted Rall, a worthy author...

"Since 1941, the U.S. has attacked, among others, North Korea, North Vietnam, Cuba, Cambodia, Laos, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Grenada, Panama, the Philippines, Libya, Iran, Somalia, Yugoslavia, Haiti, Sudan, Afghanistan and Iraq. Not once were we defending ourselves. We were always the aggressor. Over the course of six decades during which we were the world’s leading instigator of armed conflict, no one attacked us—not even the people we attacked! No one declared war upon us."

Mr. Rall is not the first person to point this out and I'm sure he won't be the last. What a shame.
