On what principles do Bush's vampires base their actions? Read, if you dare ... and quake:

The Redistribution of Honor [weeklypander.com] " ... You can divide Americans increasingly by their attitudes towards Europe. [Well, ain't that a comforting thought? Stars of David and pink triangles to go around?! h_b_] The academic and media elites tend to see Europe as the enlightened home of a more urbane civilization. Religious leaders relate favorably to the simplistic pacifism and inherent anti-Americanism that reigns among continental leaders. Europe's long-term economic stagnation, its widespread anti-Semitism, its inability, unlike America, to absorb different peoples and cultures, its financial support for Palestinian terror--all of this is of course roundly ignored.
For most Americans, the war revealed that the Europeans -- notably the Belgians and the French -- are reliably people without honor. But not all Europe has failed in American eyes. We honor most of all the British, showing themselves to be our true cousins, as well as those along the continental periphery, from Spain to Lithuania, who supported the cause of bringing down a hideous dictator." [emph added]

Sounds like fascism to me ... what's it sound like to you?

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
