They go there to buy cheap drugs.

They don't go there to receive healthcare.

Those buses run from North to South.

I don't recall TK sharing his "world view" on this forum. You seemed to have some inside information......

How old are you? Are you claiming that you don't remember the 70s and 80s?

Try these...exclusively form neocon, chimpy, chimp-chimp, dipshit, rightwing lie machines like the NYT and CNN.

Phil Donohue. Vladimir Posner.

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...52C0A960948260

This NYT story was written BEFORE there was any other place to get news.

I REMEMBER this one, also:

http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1:4170...html?refid=SEO

It was a trend. Soviet "journalists" presented by the mainstream (only source at the time available) medis...

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...52C1A963948260

ABC news had Vladimir Posner, of the USSR, offer a rebuttal to Reagan's national defense speech.

Mainstream liberalism in this country was enamoured with the USSR. Period.

Gorbachev stills warms the hearts of liberals today.

http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cold.war...les/gorbachev/

They characterize him as the real catalyst for change in the USSR, as though he planned the destruction of the Soviert Empire. )Not Reagan, of course.

Funny when you consider how much you have to ignore about what happened to the USSR to believe that Gorbachev orchestrated the whole mess.

Actually, no. I have no supernatural ability.

In fact, I had him mixed up with someone else.

Honest mistake. I apologize to you and ThrillKill for any inference drawn from my earlier comments.

Except the fact that the picture of Reagan feeding "Bush" is funny.

You asked for "proof" that there was, in fact, a resistance movement against US occupation after WWII was "over". I posted the first link referencing that fact.

Ignorance of history leads to the idea that the situation in Iraq is somehow unprecedented. No doubt, you will continue that faithful belief.

Nothing you have said refutes the fact that Nazi loyalists...much like Baathists in Iraq...continued to fight after "major ground offenses' ended.

As far as the FACT that the left in this country openly embraced the USSR...you have said even less. Ever hear of Phil Donohue? Vladamir Posner? The "sky-bridge"?

The left in the US was a tool of Pravda, much as you undoubtably find more "truth" from Al JaZeera than Fox News.
Your story has no legs. I can drag out more stories of GI's abusing Germans (in Munich as late as the 1960s German taxi drivers were routinely murdered a few kilometers from the destination by GI's who would rather kill the driver than pay him) and back them up with records of trials than you can come up with real reports about "Were-Wolves" running around after the war ended.

Your problem is context. The Iraqi "insurgency" kills more people every day than your article purports were killed by all the "Were-Wolves" in post WWII Germany. Yet you propped it up as an equal event. And all the purported "Were-Wolves" activity ended shortly after WWII ended. Yet the Iraqi "insurgency" drags on and on.

I lived in post WWII Germany from the late 1950's to 1970. There were still Germans, usually old widows of formerly powerful German industrial or other landowning families, who were bitter. Because there were no men left in the families. Because the occupying forces moved into their properties and moved them out, if they desired. Overall though, the Germans were very grateful for our presence. The post war economic boom was nearly universally acknowledged to be the result of being occupied by Americans and not Russians, and, we were the only thing holding the Russians back.

DBP has these facts correct and yours are tainted with your rightwing outlook. As for the visit to your school by Commie sympathizers, well, bitch out your school board if it bothers you. This is America, and the fact that you could have such a visit speaks volumes. The fact that you would have preferred to squash that visit speaks volumes about your outlook. You might have been more comfortable as a peon in the Nazi regime that spawned those Were-Wolves you dream about.

Being an American I find the news from Al-Jezeera much more valuable than the spew of intolerant neo-Nazi bile from most of Fox News. I can find real news from many places. The outlook from Fox is meaningless to me, as it sheds no real new perspective on any event. The reports by Al-Jezeera, while not to be taken with any more presumption of truth about what actually happened, does shed some light on how the people we are "bringing democracy to" and their neighbors view our activities. That aspect of the Al-Jezeera broadcast, the view of the native people about the events and circumstances in the ME, is likely reasonably accurate, and therefore of value, whether I like it or not.
