With the ever-popular "suck on this" analysis of why we went into Iraq. What part of, "You're a coddled, depraved apologist for state power who is willing to kill people needlessly to make yourself feel like a real man," do you not understand? More importantly, how can someone this depraved be a celebrated "intellectual" in a supposedly civilized country?

YEAR 501 is another awesome achievement by Noam Chomsky. It is a devastating array of information about the U.S. role in the world, placed in the long historical perspective of the 500 years that followed the voyages of Columbus. The result is a wonderful single-volume education in history and world politics.
-- Howard Zinn
This book portrays the world born five centuries ago: An immense supermarket where value is determined by price tags. What is the price of an intellectual? Chomsky's fierce talent proves once more that human beings are not condemned to become commodities.
-- Eduardo Galeano
"The great work of subjugation and conquest" has changed little over the years. Analyzing Haiti, Latin America, Cuba, Indonesia, and even pockets of the Third World developing in the United States, Noam Chomsky draws parallels between the genocide of colonial times and the murder and exploitation associated with modern-day imperialism.

The impact of Israeli civilian and military infrastructure is to render 40 per cent of the territory, which is roughly the size of the US state of Delaware or the English county of Norfolk, off-limits to Palestinians.And here's a nice video of settlers clubbing Palestinians. B'tselem has been giving video cameras to Palestinians. Good thing, as TV is the only reality for many Americans:
