In brief

To Arms!

Only a nincompoop could believe the government's and the media's preposterous claims about Libya and now Iran: NATO is protecting Libyans (by bombing them) while Gaddafi dispenses Viagra to aid mass rape. Iran pays a failed US used-car dealer to hire Mexican mobsters to kill the Saudi ambassador in DC. Sheesh!

Commentators Glen Ford, Zafar Bangash, Anthony DiMaggio, & I expose the lies and offer some context. Plus a satiric song by Tom Lehrer (from 1965 but alas still relevant).
