: : : I checked out your link to Stratfor.com. This is what Stratfor says about who its own clients are: "The company has had business clients in defense, media, telecommunication, banking, law, textiles, petrochemicals, forestry, and government."

: : : Which "Internationale" are you a member of, Internationale Capitalism?

**That seems a rather infantile criticism when you consider that
Marx used the British parliament's own Blue Books when writing
Das Kapital; Lenin used Czarist government figures when writing
many of his works as well... especially "Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism." The point is (if I must draw you a picture)n that this website has no hidden 'Left' agenda.** --K

: : SDF: So what's the business interest in defending the Serbs, especially now that they're destitute? All I can say is that stratfor.com has done a hell of a lot better of a job in documenting what's actually out there.

**Spot on SDF (as usual).** --K

: How do you know?

: :than you've done in you job as defender of the New World Order.

: That's about as fair as my calling you a defender of ethnic cleansing.

**YOU are now an expert on 'fairness in criticism'??? SDF has rightly criticised you for disparaging a source of information without troubling yourself to think through the consequences of that critique.** --K

: I have to leave now, SDF. I'll check out the FAIR website, since I trust FAIR. In the meantime, try not to leap to unfair conclusions about people with whom you disagree.

**Yes, do that... and *report* any discrepancies you may find. *That's* the preferred method, yes? Don't merely assert that the article, based upon not satisfying your personal bona fides, is not correct, prove it.** --K

: Have a good Tofurkey day,
