April 23, 2015: Hey friends,

So, I'm in Reykjavik, and it's the first day of summer. Well, their first day of summer, anyway. In their defence, it'd seem kind of funny to call June 21 the first day of summer this far north, when that's the very day the daylight hours start shortening....

WELL WORTH WATCHING:


The War on Democracy
by John Pilger

Why We Fight
by Eugene Jarecki


  "Recent polls have shown growing public dissatisfaction with the president's handling of the war in Iraq in the face of a persistent insurgency and the mounting U.S. death toll."-AP, my emphasis added
They forgot to mention the price at the pump, which seems to be people's #1 concern... Civilians in iraq evidently don't matter to US military planners, or to the mass media... what will it take for their lives to matter to the US public?
