In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

All this paranoid Security as a result of an event in 01 which to many looked to be a controlled demolition. Just saying although when the truth ever is properly investigated - it'll be ancient history.

Still the Joint Chiefs of Staff were not above nuking a US City in the 60's to get their way if required. I'm sure not much has changed.

Lady Liberty must be weeping uncontrollably and asking the French to take her back with the crap that stems from the US system nowdays. Don't think that Europe or the rest of the world is safe though from these mugs - just have a look at the recent financial activities happening in the EU.

Now AMD and MeeGo - pretty good stuff hey??? ;)
