In New Statesman John Pilger gives his take on America's relationship with Israel. Along the way he condemns the architecture of the Smithsonian Institution as symbolic of the American Empire, ridicules the remembrance of America's war dead by comparing the museum's "The Price of Freedom: Americans at war" exhibition to Santa's Magic Grotto, mentions Hitler and Mussolini, refers to Hiroshima and Nagasaki and throws in Vietnam as icing. All of this in the first two paragraphs.

I tried - I mean really tried - to read the whole thing but just couldn't do it. See how much punishment your mind can handle, have a go.

If anyone does manage then perhaps they could summarise for the rest of us?
