NATO Forces slaughter Afghan farmers; nothing confirms your Taliban affiliation like a NATO bullet in your head. Labor joins Likud in the Israeli Knesset, forming the most right-wing government from the broadest political spectrum in Israel's short, violent history. Evidence mounts that the IDF's rabbinate urged soldiers to cleanse the Holy Land of non-Jews, contradicting Israel's claim that every effort was made to prevent civilian causalities during Operation Cast Lead, the recent, horrific, collective assault on the Palestinian people of Gaza. International Mining Companies notoriously cheat poor African countries out of tax revenues. Despite "Change We Can Believe In", the FBI Director wants key provisions of the Patriot Act to be renewed. Finally, The Republicans' new mascot, Joe the Plumber, becomes a spokesperson for one of the many corporate-sponsored anti-Employee Free Choice Act front groups.
