    I thought there might be some takers here on a discusion on knowledge, truth,

    Well you seem to think you have some knowledge but drip feed it out. Sooo boring.
    Truth, well, lets hear some.

    Reading through Clinton’s embassy briefing for her visit I thought it was accurate, measured and detailed. But sort of long and probably just one of the many briefings she has to read each day.

    I feel curiously unmoved to sympathy.

    Imagine what her boss Obama has to wade through. How on earth does one come to any understanding of what is really going on.

    No understanding comes pretty easily I'd imagine. Its negotiating the mass of expectation around, well, just about anything nowadays which "muddies the waters" so to speak.

    Or maybe people with good judgement can cut through and make good decisions.

    Or not.

    And, of course, there are the critical stories that literally won’t go away: how will the news media handle climate change?

    You mean other that scaring the crap outta people with disaster pawn. I'd like to know that too.

    Oh Fun a right whinger Hi James B

    but at the risk of stating the obvious, most of those voices inside or outside the US inherently most suspicious and critical of the USA are of the left.

    All those fundamentalist muslims will be very upset with you for dismissing them so.
    But then its not numerical superiority you're after izeet.

    many and varied lefties like Moore, Danny Glover, Oliver Stone, Sean Penn etc

    Name dropper!

  • Hard News: The Wellington Cables,

    why do we kow-tow to these guys every time they ask us to? is it just that their dying economy is still useful?

    We don't know how to politely say farewell to institutions that have outlived their usefulness en masse. So we must ever so patiently wait while others bid a rabid farewell and make a nasty mess. Leaving the rest of us wondering is there a new cleaning agent on the market that will get that stain out. And how does reverse brain washing work? Once you get used to showing non-judgemental deference, deserved or not, its hard to break the habit.

    And all us deserving really clever on-to-it people can do is potter on with our trivial little lives being arrogant about all those people like him who have the guts to put their lives on the line for a cause.

    Glad to see you include yourself (as in the royal us)in your little caustic outburst.
