NATO News Update

................................A dog dressed for tea? Headline news? Equally absurd, indeed.

It's been weeks since the Saccharinist posted but nothing has changed in the world, as nothing changes when the present becomes history and when the past is repeated. But it's still worthwhile to learn what we can. Yes, the bad stuff of headlines has kept its promise to remain constant.

In the last few weeks in the NATO News (you know, all of the world and local news that pertain to the interests of NATO governments -- excluding all those former Soviet bastions that were recently added to make places like Slovakia feel like they actually exist in the eyes of places like the United States -- and without regard for the point of view of anyone else, even if they happen to be living in a NATO country)... The French elected a hateful conservative to improve their economy, not knowing that money doesn't bring happiness -- may they suffer the greasy consequences. Wolfowitz still hasn't stepped down (what gall), though he may be pushed out before long. The US, desperate for Iran's help in its royal Iraq error, has, out of the blue announced that Iran has suddenly reached high (i.e. still too low to count as even a 1/2 life of nuclear activity) levels of activity in its nuclear reactors -- we all know this is a ploy to force Iran's hand into as much assistance as possible over Iraq. Tony "evil eye" Blair announced he'd step down as Prime Rib and make way for the Lochness Monster. And 3 US soldiers who are missing in Iraq have been shoved off of the world headlines because nobody (i.e. The American Public) wants to hear about how Iraqis somehow not only killed more American soldiers but kidnapped and tortured them before doing so.

In short, the forces of evil prevail, as usual, in our lawless, greedy world -- according to the news. But elsewhere, in abundance that far surpasses the horror that makes the headlines, hundreds of millions of wonderful happy things are happening in the lives of good people -- and this is the sum of today's news, this is why life, on the whole, is rather good for most of us.
