Popuo, no joy with downloading YouTube videos with extensions running in Google Chrome, at least for me. But FlashVideoDownloader works a charm under Firefox for downloading these videos. See http://www.flashvideodownloader.org/
I use Ultimate YouTube Downloader, also for Chrome, and that works for me. (You do have to go to the YouTube page for the video you want - just start playing the video then click the YouTube logo in the bottom right corner.)
I couldn't stand more than ten minutes of his smug ranting. He was wrong about the military bases in Iraq... last I checked the Americans DID leave them. I just did a Google then to see if I was wrong about this, but it looks like they actually did leave.
I'm sure he has some excellent points to make about things that have been missed by the mainstream media, but he seems far keener to push his own agenda than provide a balanced viewpoint. Which I guess is his job as a comedian, but it's not exactly a great source of solid information.
You're right. The USA has several bases in Kuwait, and said they wanted to retain bases in Iraq, but were told to go fuck themselves by the Iraqi government, and astonishingly enough, did. The gigantic embassy in Baghdad remains, but with a (relative) skeleton crew.
(This is of course what some factions in the US government wanted, if only on economic grounds to stop some of the fiscal bleeding. They may have engineered it deliberately, but I'm not just going to assume a conspiracy on those grounds, especially when Hanlon's razor applies.)
I think it's also fair to note that robotic weapons are making it easier and easier to have the effect of bases in a country like Iraq that won't shoot nukes at you if you fly drones over them, without having to pay in money and lives to keep boots on the ground in the boondocks of countries that're as lushly hospitable as Tatooine. I think this may constitute a revolution in the way the CIA does business; they continue their ancient tradition of throwing away their agents at every possible opportunity, but nowadays many of those agents are not alive.
