This is not like we all went out to dinner and some of us are insisting upon white wine and some on red. Though Michael appears to believe we can have both when it comes to war. War is about death and destruction. I'm sorry that a supposed leftist -- even one like Albert who has REPEATEDLY WHORED for Barack in the last three years -- can't grasp that. But Michael Albert is a Dumb Ass. And this week, no one tops him.
What an idiot.
You can't be a little in favor of illegal war, you disgusting ass. The war is illegal. You stand on ethics or you embrace your whoredom.
I see which Michael Albert chose.
Paul Street also plays the idiot card but don't we expect it from Paul Street? The left's very own hot house plant: Paul Street.
Here's Jonathan S. Landay (McClatchy) on Congressional reaction to the Libyan War:
Monbiot's position would be laughable if it weren't so damn tragic. As the Japanese face the world's largest nuclear accident in a quarter century, here's one of the leading environmentalists in the UK defending the very technology that caused it. In the past Monbiot has been careful to defend his positions with valid supporting evidence, even chastising others for not holding up to his standards. But in the case the nuclear power Monbiot appears satisfied in cherry picking scientific facts when it comes to the infamous Chernobyl's 1986 disaster in order to support his stance.
"The Chernobyl meltdown was hideous and traumatic. The official death toll so far appears to be 43: 28 workers in the initial few months and 15 civilians by 2005," wrote Monbiot, who cited World Health Organization and the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation as his source. However, even the World Health Organization concluded that approximately 4000 people would eventually die as a result of radiation exposure from Chernobyl, a statement Monbiot seemed content with dismissing.
Even so, both the UN and WHO seem to have drastically underestimated the true human cost of the Chernobyl meltdown. The New York Academy of Sciences in 2010 released the most significant and vital English language report on the deaths and environmental devastation caused by Chernobyl. After pouring through thousands of reports and studies conducted in Eastern Europe and Russia, the Academy concluded that nearly one million people have died as a result of radiation exposure.
