Over at the Asian Times

A little piece by Tom Englhardt about the use of U.S. Airpower. He compares the recent air attacks to the Nazi's bombing of Guernica during the Spainish civil war. He then goes on to compare pilots that fly the Predator UAVs to terrorist hiding behind women and children. So I went to find out more about this guy and guess where he teaches.

Tom Engelhardt created and runs the website, a project of The Nation Institute where he is a Fellow. He is the author of a highly praised history of American triumphalism in the Cold War, The End of Victory Culture, and of a novel, The Last Days of Publishing, as well as a collection of his Tomdispatch interviews, Mission Unaccomplished. Each spring he is a Teaching Fellow at the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley.

We wonder why the world doesn't like us well we got slubs out there insinuating without any basis in fact that we committed a massacre in Arab Jabor. Other than soldiers entered smoldering orchards. He then bemoans the fact that no reporter has gone and looked. Well good sir why dont you strap on and get your media credentials and march your happy self over there.
