Last night I watched the DVD of geopolitical thriller "Syriana". It shows CIA is more interested in making the world safe for U.S. oil conglomerates than actually tracking terrorist networks. The film is an example of hyperlink cinema.

Bush the Post-Iraq Turtle:
And here is the old story of Bush the Post Turtle:
An old rancher got his hand caught in a gate while working cattle. He wrapped the hand in his bandana and drove his pickup to the doctor. While suturing the laceration, the doctor asked the old man about George W. Bush being in the White House.
The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Bush is a Post Turtle".
Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked what a Post Turtle was.
The old man looked at him and drawled, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a Post Turtle."
The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain: "You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, and you just want to help the poor dumb bastard get down."
The Birds of War exhibition was initiated by Tanya Tier to mark the 4th anniversary of the Iraq invasion. The exhibition is an opportunity to view a collaboration between British and Iraqi artists and their interpretations of the war.
