America's Straights of Hormuz story starts to unravel
America's version of the Strights of Hormuz incident has started to unravel. Iran issued its own video of the incident, and that version is getting support for some strange quarters.

No less a person than the commander of the 5th Fleet has stated that the American ships did not issue any warnings to the Iranian boats. It has also emerged from American sources that the radio channel used to communicate is full of fairly mindless chatter, so the voice that is heard on the American tape may actually have been that of an American taking the piss.

Poor old warmongers - they can't even hold their tales together for 24 hours these days.

That's right, Exile. Drink the Kool-Aid.

What the fuck does that phrase even mean, in English?

God only knows.

I don't know what roland hulme meant but I recognise the words from the song "Jonestown" (sung to the tune of Downtown):


If you are broke
and your religion's a joke
why don't you go and see
Jim Jones?
If life's incomplete
there's only one man to meet,
why don't you go and see
Jim Jones?

Watch him as he stirs the vat of Kool Aid that's so lethal,
Listen to the anguished screams of all the dying people.
No-one survived, their deaths were both painful and slow,
but when to live is to die it's a great way to go.

You're in Jonestown.
Drink up with Reverend Jim.
Jonestown
Your chances are mighty slim,
Jonestown.
The people are dropping like flies.
Jonestown, Jonestown.



There was Congressman Ryan
on his mission of spying
but he would not drink with
Jim Jones.
'Twas such a public disgrace
they had to blow off his face.
Now tell me who's to blame?
Jim Jones.


You're in Jonestown.
Drink up with Reverend Jim.
Jonestown
Your chances are mighty slim,
Jonestown.
The Kool Aid is waiting for you.
Jonestown, Jonestown.



A classic of American culture: it combines homegrown US religion, mass murder/suicide and what I assume is the black water of capitalism. Even better, there is support for the US Constitution: Congressman Ryan should have known that Congress shall make no law regarding the establishment of religion. Shooting said congressman was a defence of the right to bear arms. If only the story had involved the flag and private motor cars it would have had everything

One lasting legacy of the Jonestown tragedy is the saying, "Don't drink the Kool-Aid." This has come to mean, "Whatever they tell you, don't believe it too strongly."
