It's a basic question, not wordplay.

Well, we knew this already but nowhere else have the facts been made more explicit.

Unfortunately current events have made this report a non-story easily ignored. Nevertheless the facts are out there for all to see and no one can say they don't know. Don't wanna know? Well that's a different thing.

Chomskers reports on how many times we have come close to nuclear war:

Apparently the RCMP caught some guys trying to blow up a VIA Rail train:

Policing works, dirty wars do not.

Well I am glad they didn't level Toronto or Montreal to find these guys. . .

I'm proud of Americans for having cool heads about this latest criminal bombing. We don't want to bomb Russia or go apeshit against innocent muslims.

Terrorism is so rare it's better to always be rational. We also proved that policing terror really works. The Boston police really impressed me and I'm a classic cop hater.

Watch out, the bedbugs are even in hospitals:

You certainly know the economy is going haywire when bedbugs infiltrate a rich society as ours. A shame, the poor get the brunt of the beasts.

It get's to the point where a lot of our history just slides off my back, I get used to the horrorshow. This latest Chomsky op-ed for the New York Times company not only scared me it boiled my blood: Beyond Boston--indeed:

http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/16138 ... and-beyond

I never knew about the polio story with the CIA. That is some sick shit. Now we know why Obama looked the way he did in that famous picture in the situation room.

We almost having a nuclear war is another sick story. I could only shake my head in disgust. Was it worth it to kill one guy and off a bunch of kids with polio? Shameful.

I grieve for my country.

Chomsky is full of shit. Most of that is biased bullshit without attribution. I don't like drones either. Who does? But I like the radical Islamist terrorist who brought it on their innocent villagers even less. If they were men, humans, they would surrender themselves to prevent the deaths of innocent non-combatants.

First time visitor (I think?). What a nice idea, this place. You should do all of your posting here, Franklin.

Diane, we have terrorists here, can other countries send in drones to kill them? Just them, no civilians.

Imagine a drone from Laos killed Kissinger. We would wage war on them. The CIA stuff alone is evil. Chomsky is the last humanitarian.

If Chomsky is the last humanitarian, then by your own declaration you have failed him as a student.
