Secondly : homosexuals are traditionally harassed targets - rather like Jews and blacks, but with the added advantage of not standing out. That's ideal for alleging anyone ' the enemy', which can't be far off.  )

I know I've recapped Common Dreams pieces : this paragraph seems to catch the mood of the times. From 'An Empire Can Be Terribly Expensive' by John Smart
"Forget the spin about WMD's or 'Iraqi Freedom' or the 'War on Terror'. The White House is lying, Congress is lying, and the media stopped asking questions. What we are not told is that Iraq is about oil, war profiteering and a larger plan to control energy resources of the Middle East and Central Asia.  This scheme goes beyond our domestic energy needs and seeks to give multinational corporate dominance over global markets while feeding a hungry American war Machine."
