WE’RE back with our first blather in weeks and it felt good to run through an hour of news analysis again! First things first: P.I.D. Radio will be here next week and for the foreseeable future.
Thank you to everyone sent notes of support. It’s truly humbling to know that this little homegrown show has reached around the world.
We hope you had a chance to see The State Within on BBC America Saturday. The miniseries was a well-written and tightly directed political thriller that offers a glimpse into what might happen inside the halls of power in Washington, D.C. Wars are basically marketing ploys to drum up business for the military industrial complex back here at home.
Meanwhile, it’s back to blather on the news of the day. A remarkable development that has been little noticed by the major media: A group of American generals has apparently let it be known that they will quit if President Bush orders an attack on Iran. In addition, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Peter Pace, has said there is “no chance” of the U.S. going to war with Iran.
In addition, a story that’s set to break next week at the Intelligence Summit in Tampa reveals that Saddam had an active nuke program in 2002 and 2003. During the last six months of 2002, Saddam apparently built four very expensive nuclear storage and production facilities underneath the Euphrates River. Let’s see how this is played in the media.
