    The Power of Nightmares starts on BBC2 at 9pm on Wednesday October 20.

    The making of the terror myth

    Since September 11 Britain has been warned of the 'inevitability' of catastrophic terrorist attack. But has the danger been exaggerated? A major new TV documentary claims that the perceived threat is a politically driven fantasy - and al-Qaida a dark illusion....

    Could be quite good.

    Yeah, I knew that ... I read Orwell's "1984" when I was about 14.

    I've decided to just ignore any of their crap. I decided that when you see the Bush administration moving their mouths it's time to change channel just too depressing to watch - I trained myself to fancy Condaleeza Rice as a diversion ... which is kind of scary too!

    Yes well, there is always the danger ( particulary in "here" ) of preaching to the converted, eh ?
    I have always prefered the " Know Thy Enemy " approach, but each to his own !

    Yes, I'm looking ofrward to this. Not because I expect it to teach me reams of stuff that I had no idea of previously, but because of my hope that it will reach the masses and teach them a few things, if they can prise their eyes from the copies The daily hate for just a minuite.

    Oh and....
    Wrong didley wrong wrong... ::cry::

    When the Enemy just repeats the same shit to whatever question asked - there's not much more to know ...

    I know, it started as a joke - then went badly wrong. In defence: she's got a nice body ...
    :P

    She's got a PhD in Political Science and the ear of the President, she's black and from a poor background and yet she's a republican - that's complex and I know I haven't fathomed her out from afar - and yet all you can say is "she's got a nice body..." :???????? :o

    When are you next on 'Question Time'?

    Did I not mention I have a carefully cultivated minimalist attention span ?
    Besides, I expect all women I fancy to be fantastically intelligent, powerful and intriguing ... well at least for the next five minutes or so!

    What were we talking about again ?

    Mmm ... coffee :Smile3:

    Amazing isn't it how every decade or so the neo cons have completely fabricated a dossier to further their cause, despite the protesting of the the security services :sad:
