Peace, real, lasting peace, is not a product of disavowing war, or thinking peaceful thoughts. Nor is it the product of negotiated settlements. Peace is the product of winning the war brought against you, with sufficient force to prevent any ideas of trying it again. Examples: World war II was the direct result of the […]

George Monbiot, who is likely the biggest global warming propagandist in the press today, looks at the Global Warming emails that have been the topic of so much discussion lately and admits:

It\’s no use pretending this isn\’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging. I am now convinced that they are genuine, and I\’m dismayed and deeply shaken by them.

The trouble is, he\’s still playing the party line:

Yes, the messages were obtained illegally.

As I told you yesterday and Friday, as well, I suspect this was an inside job, and there is no credible evidence that suggests that the messages were illegally obtained.  Rather, they were distributed by someone who had legal access to them.  If you\’re going to claim then that illegality was involved say they were illegally distributed rather than illegally obtained.  Unless, of course, that is , you\’re trying to project yourself in the public eye as the victim.
