ANDRE DAMON–Bolton is a professional advocate of aggressive war, a sort of Dr. Strangelove without the charm. He somehow comes off in his writing as even more icy and detached than he does on camera. Reading this half-deranged bureaucrat’s observations is unnerving, recalling Hannah Arendt’s observations about the banality of evil. Throughout the conflicts Bolton narrates, the dominant factor is the utter debacle facing US imperialism on the world stage.

As the brown haze and fumes from the massive explosions lifted, Beirut appeared as a war zone, with destruction more extensive than after weeks of intensive shelling during Lebanon’s civil war of 1975-1989. The damage has extended across half the city, at a cost estimated at $3 billion, with 300,000 people now homeless, according to the city’s governor, Marwan Abboud, in a city where housing was already in short supply.

The narrow postwar political framework, however, within which these individuals would subsequently be obliged to operate was established early on. In 1947, Shirer, perhaps the most talented of the crowd, was forced out at CBS, without Murrow’s coming to his assistance, for criticizing the Truman Doctrine (that the US, as leader of the “free world,” must lead a worldwide crusade against communism) and the network’s kowtowing to corporate sponsors. Shirer was named in Red Channels, the anti-communist tract published in 1950, and blacklisted for all intents and purposes.
Cronkite was not of that stature. He apparently found no great difficulty in accepting the limits set by the American establishment during the Cold War. He was known to be critical, as was Murrow, of Senator Joseph McCarthy and the anti-communist witch-hunting, but he made a career for himself nonetheless.

The Convo Couch: Beirut Lebanon Disaster, Cori Bush defeats Incumbent, Republicans outleft the Dems? & more!
P. GREANVILLE—Introducing The Convo Couch, another very fine resource on the left—I’m talking left , folks, not treacherous IDpolliberals, which of course we would never feature or recommend on The Greanville Post. Why? Because one of our missions is to expose the liberals/Democrats’ treacheries and bankrupt ideology, if we can use that word to describe their filthy tegument of lies and hypocrisy. The Convo Couch, like our comrade Caleb Maupin, operates out of YouTube, which is inherently dangerous (to them), since YouTube is Google and Google is the enemy. They could be deleted any time, as Google has done with numerous other progressives who were suppressed precisely at the point they were beginning to acquire a sizable audience, and a respectable monetized platform to keep them going. Let’s face it, folks, owned uniformly by sociopathic billionaires, and staffed with executives and front men who embody the values of capitalism—opportunism, hypocrisy, careerism, and mendacity in the service of the imperialist empire, which, as we all know here, means endless wars, including nuclear war, grotesque inequality, fascism, and ecocide— the corporate media are our enemy.
GHASSAN KADI—The cities of Tripoli and Sidon have sea ports, but they are not capable of dealing with the volumes required and cannot replace the capacity of Beirut’s port.
