Dark Eagles Dive Around the Head(Apropos of Trakl)

"A sudden and thoughtless fright."

-------------Paston Letters, On Henry VI, King of England ca. August 1453.

Iraq is an admitted mess. Shiite Iraqis have protested in anger the US's open
arming and support of Israel's punitive airstrikes of Lebanese civilian centers.
Hezbollah is now seen as an Heroic Resistance group fighting Israel and the US.
Things could not get worse for the United States and the United Kingdom, i.e. the
"Friends of Israel". Is it any surprise we now have a spectacular discovery of an
"incredibly, breathtaking" conspiracy by Al-Qaeda to bomb over 10 US Airliners
over the Atlantic in the "next two weeks"? (Nota bene the vagueness.) Our heroes
have stymied the "terrorists" again! When everything was going to pot--VOILA ICI!
Cheney told the Democrats! Dubya warned us this is a worldwide war and we must
always be vigilant! Keep the masses fearful and thankful! To believe these magnificent
coups of intelligence begs the question--What happened on 9-11? Where were our
Superheroes then? The News stations are salivating!!!!! The people, credulous, and
frightened, thank their lucky stars as bombs rain on Lebanon.
Shall we, like HenryVI, vouchsafe our own sovereignty to fear? Shall we fall for it?
No tower can be built high enough to dam the tidal, media backed, waves of horseshit.
