5 Years in Iraq

Happy Anniversary, dumbshit.

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence - economic, political, even spiritual - is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

President Dwight Eisenhower, in his farewell speech to the country
January 17, 1961

The Last Days of Disco - Clips

From the director (Whit Stillman) of Metropolitan (1990), a film I really dug - this came out a few years later (1998) and still isn't available on DVD for some reason. I still haven't seen Barcelona (1994) the second part of the 'trilogy'.
