The Iraq story, which has occupied a huge proportion of headline news for years, serves as a good example of this.
The Brownshirt Party has chosen John â€œhundred year warâ€ McCain as its presidential candidate. Except for Cheney, Norman Podhoretz, and billy kristol, McCain is Americaâ€™s greatest warmonger.
