...is again a forum for (words fail me)...misinformed quasipolitical idiocy (??? I'm trying to make nice here)! A tip of the Froggy"s fedora to The Big Pharaoh (his URL is permanently embedded in the column to the right of your screen).From the SF ChronicleLondon -- The playwright Harold Pinter turned his Nobel Prize acceptance speech Wednesday into a furious howl of outrage against American foreign policy, saying that the United States had not only lied to justify waging war against Iraq but had also "supported and in many cases engendered every right-wing military dictatorship" in the last 50 years. "The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them," Pinter said. "You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It's a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis." The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them," Pinter said.Interesting words, especially since they come from a person who supports Slobodan Milosevic's freedom:The problem with overly leftist Europeans is that they will oppose anything the US does. And I mean anything whether this thing is in Iraq or Yoguslavia. Besides, who cares about a bunch of European leftists rewarding each other?
Thank you big Pharaoh. I have to agree with one of the comments posted to the item on your blg that said (pretty much) that the dingbats have taken over choosing the "soft prizez". What will happen if they ever take over picking the prizes for Mathematics and Physics?
