This guy eloquently kicks the collective asses of US accusers who tried to blame him for their crimes: IOL: Galloway angrily rebukes US Senators' claims

UPDATE: See video, hear audio here. And, notice this quote:
"...the Senate report found that US oil purchases accounted for 52% of the kickbacks paid to the regime in return for sales of cheap oil - more than the rest of the world put together. 'The United States was not only aware of Iraqi oil sales which violated UN sanctions and provided the bulk of the illicit money Saddam Hussein obtained from circumventing UN sanctions,' the report said. 'On occasion, the United States actually facilitated the illicit oil sales.'"

I absolutely love how he man handled the subcommittee. It's rare to see that these days. I do think the Oil for Food scandal was shameless, though. Nice post, Shea.

Lots of posts, not many readers according to your site meter. Very good!

I'm not sure what that last post meant...
But as an addendum to my last post it is,

"Galloway for President!"©

Before anyone starts celebrating this guy, keep in mind that he is widely seen as a traitor and worse in the UK. He does not speak for American liberals, nor does he represent any mainstream party in the UK. He was tossed out of the Labour party (the centre/left party).

It's true that he raised some good points, but he is no hero.

Mike of the North said...

Dear wee willie, who gives a shit what the so called centre/left lickers of bushco bottom think. They are as pansy assed as our so called american liberals, and if galloway represented the liberals here he would be as meaningless as they are.

Yeah, I can see him being seen as a traitor or worse in the uk, just like anti war protesters here in the united(fascist)states are.

As far as telling people who is a hero and who isn't, I'll leave you with an old brit admonition:

Bugger off you evil git!

If anyone cares to further understand what Galloway represents.

Note to anonymous:
Please refrain from using the communist boogie man to besmirch the reputation of someone you disagree with.

So someone was sad when the ussr went down in flames. So what? It was a noble social experiment that was hijacked by despots. It's beginning to look like the same will be said about the american republic.

Admiration for stalin and saddam's methods for the tranformation of their respective cultures? Again, so what? I admire the effectivness of the neocons in exploiting the tragedy of 9/11 in order to secure global dominance. It doesn't mean that I think it's a model that should be followed.

So WTF does that article prove about what galloway represents anyway?

Just another point of view, Mikey. Draw your own conclusions.

Here's a man who uses the cancer of a young girl to steal money from a false front charity. Where's the reputation to besmirch?
His own party in Britain expelled him. You may snuggle up to any vermin you wish, Mikey. It's still a free country if we can keep the commies out of control. So kiss up to Georgie.

Mike of the North said...

Anon, Blah, Blah, Blah, still trying to use the commie boogie man I see. Get over yourself and your reality denying "we're still free..." crap. Free? You are so cowed by the corporate propaganda that you equate having the choice of cable or satellite T.V. as a gift of liberty.

Well get down on your knees and kiss geeboy's ass for sending our troops to slaughter innocent iraqis so you can choose between which bullshit reality show to numb yourself with, and which gas sucking suv to drive to your soul sucking corporate pigeon hole of a job.

Thank god for bush and thank god for freedom!!!

Piss off with the finger pointing about political grandstanding until you get your own bullshit representatives under control. Do you need me to point out the recent revelations about the "Heroic" death of Sgt. Tillman in Afghanistan? Here's a quote from his parents,

Patrick Tillman Sr., a San Jose lawyer, said "...After it happened, all the people in positions of authority went out of their way to script this," "They purposely interfered with the investigation, they covered it up. I think they thought they could control it, and they realized that their recruiting efforts were going to go to hell in a handbasket if the truth about his death got out."

My georgie misdirected some funds and paid them back plus some.

Your georgie has misdirected billions of dollars into the pockets of his cronies in the oil and defense industries. Not only will he never pay it back but he's going to make you, me, our chidren, and our grandchildren pay it all back with interest.

My georgie got some much needed medical care to a little iraqi girl.

Your georgie opened the gates of hell upon the iraqi children and has killed and maimed thousands upon thousands of them.

My georgie tried and failed to get sanctions against the civilian population of iraq lifted for humanitarian reasons.

Your georgie successfully ended the sanctions against civilians in iraq by dropping bombs on them.

I may kiss up to my georgie, but I can tell by the smears of santorum on your shorts what you've been doing for your georgie.

To: the personage represented as “Mike of the North”
From: The PoliteBureau
Corner Noble Experiment Ave., Despot Blvd.

Comrade North:

You are to present yourself to the Commissar of the PoliteBureau to answer charges of indecency of impolite comment and thought.

It has been brought to the attention of the Bureau that you have made impolite comments on the web log Constantly Amazed, yet Never Surprised. It is charged that you have attacked with impolite comment one “Overseas Will” for merely pointing out what are, in some circles, known truths. Whether these so-called truths are true or not is beside the point. It is charged you have been naughty toward “Overseas Will” as well as other “anonymous” posters to the aforementioned blog. That “Overseas Will” is an underground functionary of the KGB (KinderGarten Brigade) makes these charges all the more serious.

You are directed to present yourself before the Commissar at 4:30 A.M. tomorrow morning, 26 May 2005. You should be reminded that failure to appear will result in further charges. Do not forget that we know the whereabouts of your family at all times.

Present yourself to the Tribune for Operational Remedial Testing and Unwitting Re-education Enterprise (TORTURE). TORTURE is located in the sub-basement of the PoliteBureau headquarters. There is no need to bring anything or anyone else. The Bureau will provide for all your needs.

The Bureau has contacted your mentor, Commissar Gallo Whine about this situation. He regrets not being able to support you in this proceeding. Commissar Whine has been directed to deliver chocolates and toffee to our friend the inestimable and honorable “Comrade Hussein” at an undisclosed location. While Comrade Hussein is no longer able to assist us with the funding or amusement in his palaces, we never forget a friend. Then Comrade Whine is off to Sudan to deliver chocolates, toffee, and bolster efforts toward a “final solution” to the problem Christians and infidels in Darfur. He knows that you will understand.

Commissar Anonymous, After such a wonderful letter how can I do anything but submit myself to the machinations of the state so as to receive the proper reprogramming.

Though I realize that I am in need of the retraining it is with much trepidation that I approach the daunting task of watching hours of sean hannity, ann coulter and o'reilly, whilst simultaneously listening to limbaugh and savage, so that I may truly learn the art of politeness.

Painful as it will be I have come to realize that I must accept what I had always assumed to be the mindless garbage that the so called "right" spews on a daily basis, as the truth.

I will accept my fate humbly with bowed head knowing that by doing so I will join the legions of happy idiots such as your honorable self.

Yours truly,
Comrade MOTN

Its obvious Jesus was a capitalist. From a small beginning, a few loaves and fishes, he created a massive feast feeding and freeing all from hunger with baskets left over. If he were a socialist or commie, he would have collected from everyone and doled out to a smaller number leaving everyone deprived and dependent. Let him who has eyes see and ears hear
