an evil, evil man

Sean Gonsalves: You call that a case? (via testify!)

Of course, what ought to tone down the self-righteousness coming out of Washington, D.C., these days is the fact that, according to our own Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, under the administrations of Reagan and Bush No. 41, we sold Iraq anthrax, VX nerve gas, West Nile fever germs and botulism.

And we didn't stop when word got out about the gassing of the Kurds in the town of Halabja that claimed the lives of 5,000. Nope. We sold them this stuff right up until March 1992. That's March 1992 -- a year after the Gulf War was over.

Whenever I get worried that I'm just choosing facts that are ideologically convenient instead of informing myself and then taking a stand, I find out that it's much worse than I think. I'll try to stay worried, but it ain't easy.
