I Love You, Tony Benn!
Watch as he takes GOP tool John Bolton to the woodshed.

"I was born about a quarter of a mile from where we are sitting now and I was here in London during the Blitz. And every night I went down into the shelter. 500 people killed, my brother was killed, my friends were killed. And when the Charter of the UN was read to me, I was a pilot coming home in a troop ship: 'We the peoples of the United Nations determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind.' That was the pledge my generation gave to the younger generation and you tore it up. And it's a war crime that's been committed in Iraq, because there is no moral difference between a stealth bomber and a suicide bomber. Both kill innocent people for political reasons."
Tony Benn is one of my heroes. I've blogged about him before, you can find that here. What he says about America near the end of this clip is very compelling, and in no small way prophetic as we're seeing clear evidence of his predictions from then.

Damn. He can come over here and kick some political ass any time.

We are sorely missing a great orator in our times. I had hopes that Obama would be that orator, however, he often maintains that lawyerly cool too well.

He is so awesome! Bolton is such an arrogant douchebag. Just listening to him talk is infuriating.
