I'm not much into the conspiracy theory thing but it sure seems as though the media is trying to get the U.S. riled up by inference in order to get it involved in (yet) another conflict.

The U.S. can't solve the mass killings that go on in its inner cities, so how will it be able to solve the conflicts of others?

Pick a place: North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Ukraine, many potential battlegrounds.

Meanwhile people here are killing each other, our culture is dumbing down, homeless people are freezing to death, but people are more concerned about foreign entanglements...Great.

Let them fight their wars. Our involvement profits us none. Life is cheap in that part of the world, it's sad innocents get caught in the middle, but its a cycle of vengeance and retribution.

When the U.S. can get the cycle of inner-city gang violence under control, *then* it can talk about involvement, but until then, the U.S, itself torn by inner strife, has no moral ground to stand on when it comes to telling others what to do.

Well folks I hate to break it to you, but The Independent has, by fiat, become the de facto voice of the people by allowing us all to air out our views on these blogs.

Blogs have already become the media and many don't even realize it.

By the way, I didn't realize MacFadyen and Bolton were Fascists bent on destroying democracy--somehow that got under my nose in all the years I worked among them but I will run for cover if I see them coming down the street.

I think I better start being more careful around friends and family members as well.

I'm glad we can all have this private discussion about how America is spying on people.

A. Barry Cappello...doing what losing attorneys do best, dig from the bottom of the garbage can, find dreck, and throw it at the wall and see if it sticks.

Realistically, why are "Latinos" (Can't say the "M"-word?) underrepresented? Also, cruise ships and SBIFF are other issues, but that's what attorneys do--try to get people off-topic.

Yes Mr. A. Barry Cappello, you're grasping at straws. By the way, if my name sounds familiar, your team was the one my family and I fought in the case of my mother's wrongful death suit, and despite your literature proudly proclaiming you as a "Pit Bull" which sat in the lobby of your office, you still lost the case because we had truth on our side.

Looks like you're doing your reverse Dale Carnegie bit once again.

What's really sad is that while you clearly are a ruthless, bottom feeder, I actually can put aside my feelings about the disgusting behavior of your little Golden Boy who tried his best to shake me and intimidate at the meetings we had (where I tore him a new one--if you know what I mean) and say that I agree with you on the matter of district elections, but your ego may well result in diluting the overall issue and turn sentiment against this because let's face it, almost everybody despises you.

By the way, my Mom and Dad say "Hi" from the great beyond, and seeing my dad's face light up when told we'd won the settlement even though he was on his deathbed gave him, my sister, and myself a sense of justice being served.

P.S. Someday we all go to meet our Maker, may that divine force that runs the universe treat you better than your legal team, under your watch, treats others. Payback is a bitch in the afterlife.

Yep, a microcosm of human prison culture.
