Chris Floyd, author of Empire Burlesque – High Crimes and Low Comedy in the Bush Imperium, discusses the media-designated “post-war” status of Iraq, the real “Mission Accomplished” goal of establishing a permanent US military footprint in Iraq, Ahmed “hero in error” Chalabi’s talent for remaining politically relevant despite a total lack of public support, why only war criminals on the losing side need worry about prosecution and how ending the US empire would improve nearly all aspects of society.

  1. In Bush's own words: "You can piss on Chalabi."

  2. Thank you Scott for this superb interview. I completely agree with the goods things you say about Chris' writings. He is unsurpassable in his knowledge, his eloquence and moral clarity. There's some good humanity in hearing you both informally chatting in this way about these overwhelmingly important issues. So many thanks to the both of you.

  3. The missiles to be deployed on ships in the Black Sea in Bulgaria and on land in Romania and Poland by 2015 are a necessary component for an unanswerable first strike – - to shoot down surviving Russian missiles which are launched in retaliation according to former Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge-http://www.plrc.org-. An unanswerable first-strike capability leads to Launch On Warning. We ought to protest the insane pursuit of an unanswerable first strike. It´ll kill us all in the end because it inevitably leads to Launch On Warning, i.e. mistakes, computer malfunctions, and such may happen. Nuclear Winter by mistake ? It´s no mistake the CND magazine is called Sanity.

  4. America has been taken over by the Pentagon. I have no hope that we can scale back the Military. They are running the show and they are not going to let go of their power. They will continue their wars of conquest until the bitter end, no matter what happens to civilian society here at home. They don't give a damn about the civilian society — we exist to breed for the war machine and pay through the nose for it. I appreciate Scott and Chris and Antiwar.com. They are chronicling the descent of America into national madness, but I just don't think their efforts will change anything.
    Sorry I am so pessimistic.

  6. One thing I would really like to say is the fact that
    car insurance cancellation is a dreadful experience so if you’re doing the proper things like a driver you may not get one. Many people do obtain notice that they are officially dumped by their insurance company and several have to fight to get further insurance following a cancellation. Low-cost auto insurance rates are generally hard to get after having a cancellation. Understanding the main reasons concerning the auto insurance cancelling can help people prevent losing one of the most important privileges available. Thanks for the strategies shared via your blog.
