We interrupt ...

... the hand-wringing over global warming to bring you word - from a French philosopher no less - of a perhaps more pressing cause for apocalyptic concern: From the H-Bomb to the Human Bomb.

The fight to avoid the Somalization of the planet is just beginning, and it will probably dominate the twenty-first century. If they resist the sirens of isolationism, Americans will learn from their mistakes. Europe will either resolve to help them or abandon itself to the care of the petro-czar Vladimir Putin, who stands ready to police the old continent, while preaching antiterrorist terrorism, with his devastation of Chechnya as a case in point. The borderless challenge of emancipated warriors allows us little leisure for procrastination.


André Glucksmann, by the way, is an advisor to French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner.

    "while preaching antiterrorist terrorism"

    Now who besides Putin has been using that barrell of bull to push home agendas? The War on Terror facade. It's a real toughie.

    And the answer of course doesn't involve people who are members of extremely sinister occult societies like Skull & Bones, of which the dearly beloved US Pres is a devout example. Not taht there's the slightest chance of some of our most loyal & educated citizens seeing anything wrong with a President being initiated into a satanic society while lying naked masturbating in a coffin, is there? You certainly couldn't make it up. ANd you certainly couldn't make up that people are actually prepared to imagine this is aok.

  3. Did you people actually look at what Glucksmann wrote, by any chance? Always best to pay attention to what is said before you jump into going on about what it means. It's called reading.
