Bush/GOP shameful in backing deadly Israeli war

WASHINGTON -- As if Bush's horrific failed Iraq war wasn't bad enough, shame on Bush/Cheney, the GOP, lame dems, and anyone else supporting Israel's prolonged attack on Lebanon and Gaza. America should be pushing hard for real peace, not taking sides.

No, I and the many Americans against Israel's war are not pro-terrorist. Nor are we anti-jew, and it is not anti-semetic to criticize Israel's agressive killing, or costly US support of it. Don't even try it, simpletons.

Three Israeli soldiers are kidnapped, and Israel uses it to go on a deadly rampage, killing hundreds of children, women and civilians (see photo), and destroying much of Lebanon and Gaza.

The kidnappings were wrong, as are the weak rockets fired into Israel, but Israel's full-on murderous war response is unethical and not justified.

Israel's '48 hour ceasefire' was pure political bullshit. It lasted about 10 minutes.

Sadly, many members of the Israeli military train to kill in Arizona, mostly at the Army's Ft. Huachuca near Sierra Vista (which is also killing the San Pedro River), the Marine Base in Yuma, and the Goldwater Range in SW Arizona.

The US must stop propping up Israel. It fuels terrorism and too much hatred against us. The costs are not worth it. The $5000 per Israeli the US spends yearly in 'aid' (weapons) to Israel could do a lot more good spent solving our problems at home.

Israel is strong, and it must stand on its own peacefully with its neighbors, or fall.

Back to stickin' it to the man after Big Island trip

TUCSON -- We're back from the Big Island. Rad place. Mahalo, Hawai'i.

Here is the endangered Hawai'ian Nene goose in a photo I took on the windward side.

Not too hot in South Kona as people died across the mainlands from record heat. Global warming kills. Tucson is cool lately, with mist and clouds in our healing monsoon summer.

Vacation is nice, but back to stickin' it to the man tomorrow.

Revolution will not be computerized, it'll be live

TUCSON -- The revolution will not be computerized. It will not be brought to you by Bill Gates or blogs. It will not go better with coffee. The revolution will not be digital.

The revolution will be live!

I'll be working on it in the real world, away from computers until the end of July.

Now please turn off your computer and go outside.

Voto Obrador hoy para un futuro Mexicano mejor

UPDATE, 7/4/06: With the Mexican election still too close to call, read good coverage in the LA Times.

MEXICO CITY -- Big presidential election today in Mexico.

Populist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has my support. He'll better help the poor, and won't be a lapdog to Bush and the US gov't.

Let's hope Mexicans vote him in today.
