But I'm not talking about all cancervatives. Just those who are alive.
1734 KIA in Iraq, probably really 6-7000 if we include wounded who died in or on the way to hospitals elsewhere. Now they want kids to die in Iran...well, not their kids, of course. Your kids.
Big Dick and Dumsfeld want GIs to die in Iran soon, too
For the US hardliners, led by Vice-President Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, the defence secretary, Mr Rafsanjani presents the danger of exacerbating the divisions between the US, which is essentially trying to contain Iran, and Europe which favours the engagement approach.
Let these folks know if you have something to say to Karl "Red" Rover
"This is a site set up for the purpose of receiving email from men and women serving currently in the United States military or veterans who are angry at Karl Rove's recent comments. I do not serve in the military myself, but I have two friends who have fought in Iraq--both good liberals.
"Let Karl Rove know that when it comes to defending the USA, there are no Democrats or Republicans, just Americans."
Now that I think about it, these worthless pussies would be more dangerous to their buddies in combat than the bad guys are. Would you want to depend on one of these snivvling, little weasles to watch your back in a shit storm?
In their own words.
"Frankly, I want to be a politician. I'd like to survive to see that," said Vivian Lee, 17, a war supporter visiting the convention from Los Angeles. (No one else ever had similar thoughts before enlisting.) She says she'd enlist "if there's another September 11."
"If there was a need presented, I would go," said Chris Cusmano, a 21-year-old member of the College Republicans organization from Rocky Point, N.Y. (If he'd listen to something besides FAUXNEWS and Der Ruschkopf, he'd know the Army and Marines have missed their recruiting goals for the last six months.)
"I physically probably couldn't do a whole lot" in Iraq, said Tiffanee Hokel, 18, of Webster City, Iowa, who called the war a moral imperative. She knows people posted in Iraq, but she didn't flinch when asked why she wouldn't go.
"I think I could do more here," Hokel said, adding that she's focusing on political action that supports the war and the troops.
"We don't have to be there physically to fight it," she said.
If we don't have to be there physically to fight it, why is anybody there at all?
These spoiled, useless slugs should just shut the hell up and slither back to their nice, cozy, little parallel universe where the help do all their dirty work for them.
Explains a lot, doesn't it? I bet Mary Carey could make him feel all better.
"At the age of 9, I put a Nixon bumper sticker on the wire basket in the front of my bicycle. Unfortunately, the little Catholic girl down the street was a couple years and about 20 pounds on me. She was for Kennedy.
"When she saw me on my bike with my bumper sticker for Nixon, she put me on the ground, flattened me out and gave me a bloody nose," he said.
Somebody find this woman.
"Today, today, I'm proud to tell you they are clear, we surround them."
He wasn't talking about terists. He was talking about you and me.
It started so easily. "They don't want us to get Saddam. They're worse than he is. Get 'em!" Now we're the real enemy.

44% Say Hussein
June 23, 2005--Forty-nine percent (49%) of Americans say that President Bush is more responsible for starting the War with Iraq than Saddam Hussein. A Rasmussen Reports survey found that 44% take the opposite view and believe Hussein shoulders most of the responsibility.
In late 2002, months before the fighting began, most Americans thought that Hussein was the one provoking the War. Just one-in-four thought the President was doing the provoking at that time.
The biggest change in perceptions has come among Democrats.
Recruiters are paying a high price, suffering from depression, headaches and stomach problems brought on by the tremendous pressure of having to find two new recruits per month to meet their quotas, avoid their commanders' wrath and fulfill their mission. One Texas recruiter told the New York Times' Damien Cave that he'd rather be fighting on the front lines of the war in Iraq than recruiting weary teenagers and coping with anxious parents in the states.
"As a minister, I am interested in that word desecration because I cannot recall when the American flag was first made into a holy or sacred object -— when it was sanctified. That old flag is grand, yes. Beautiful, yes. Venerable, yes. But not sacred. Not in this country, where, in the darkest days of World War II, Justice Robert Jackson wrote an eloquent statement for the Supreme Court on why the freedom the flag symbolizes must include the right to treat the flag itself as a mere symbol, not as a holy object. It was the Nazis -- our enemies in 1943 -- who sacralized their swastika and who outlawed its desecration. We knew better.
But to me, legislating against flag “desecration” is religiously obnoxious for another reason. This legislation expresses the very worst in bad religion -- the very worst in a domesticated empire -- loving Christianity that freely merges the flag with the cross in weepy transports of messianic nationalism.
This is a Christianity that went bad in the first place by holding out the myth of Original Innocence to White Americans. Original Innocence makes righteousness easy, even automatic. It’s a great concept. It means that we Chosen Ones are freed of any guilt for extracting our early material “greatness” from the unrequited toil of enslaved Africans; nor can we ever be guilty of shedding the innocent blood of Native Americans, Mexicans, Filipinos, Guatemalans, Haitians, Dominicans, Panamanians, Vietnamese, or Iraqis in our pursuit of empire; nor can we ever be guilty of greedily gobbling up the world’s natural resources while turning our backs on the world’s poorest.

Say it to my face. Please.
Call me a traitor to my face. Name a time and place, or shut the hell up and move to South America with the other nazi and confederate holdouts.
Democrat GIs in Iraq really pissed at Rove; they like to say, "Republicans don't volunteer"
"My son and daughter both emailed me last night (from Iraq) wanting to know just who in the hell the Rove guy is. They both want to plaster his face everywhere around the bases they are stationed. It seems that Rove didn't know that a good percentage of enlisted folk were Democrats. They like to say around the bases that republicans don't volunteer."
That means our president has authorized a civil war on over half the country because we are traitors and want GIs to die. I guess we should have a contest to see who looks the most French.
Republicans are not Americans. Their ancestors hated America, they hate America, and they will do anything to kill this ridiculous experiment called democracy so they can go back to a feudal theocracy the way their diseased brains tell them God intended our country to be.
Civil War II, which I've predicted for twenty years, has finally begun, whether you like it or not. We are at war. The game is afoot. Deal with it. You are their enemy. They will treat you as an enemy to be exterminated. They will come for you. I say, "Bring it on." They want a war, I'll give them a war. It's time to ruck up. No spectators allowed.
Get ready. Now. Not next week, NOW.
Who killed 1728 GIs, libruls or King Goerge?Section 1. Short Title
This joint resolution may be cited as the "Authorization for Use of Military Force," passed unanimously on 14 September 2001.
It says in part:
(a) That the president is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2011, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.
The joint resolution authorized King Goerge to go after Osama bin Hidin and everyone who helped him. Instead, King Goerge invaded Iraq. Now the whole world hates our country, and rethuglicons blame us?
Karl Rove and every living rethuglicon* can honk Bobo's nose.

Here’s what ALL AMERICANS – liberals and conservatives -- understand:
It's been 1,379 days since September 11, 2001, and Osama Bin Laden remains on the loose. By comparison, World War II – from Pearl Harbor to the Japanese surrender – lasted 1,365 days.
I guess the difference is, this war is hard work.

Republican candidate calls Bush Admin 'Nazis,' quits party
A candidate for North Carolina Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court has announced on her campaign's blog that she is leaving the Republican Party and denounced the Bush administration's policy on troop withdrawal from Iraq. Rachel Lea Hunter, a Republican and a candidate for Chief Justice, likens Bush’s administration to the “Nazis” and says that all who disagree with the administration are being branded as “traitors”.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, already embroiled in controversy because of allegations of a liberal-leaning bias in its programming, chose a former Republican Party co-chairman Thursday as its president and chief executive.
Patricia S. Harrison, currently the assistant secretary of state for educational and cultural affairs, was selected following three days of closed-door meetings by the corporation's board of directors.
Now do you believe the civil war has already begun? Are you getting ready?

The liars and hucksters of the "American Center for Voting Rights" are at it again.
As those who remember our series exposing this phony Republican front-group will recall, the ACVR calls themselves a "non-partisan" group and claims a tax-exempt status in exchange for it.
They are, however, comprised of two key high-level GOP operatives: Mark F. "Thor" Hearne, the General Counsel for Bush/Cheney '04, Inc., and Jim Dyke, the Communications Director for the RNC.
ACVR has yet to produce their legal 501(c)3 paperwork -- which allows them tax-exempt status -- to us as they had promised, and when Thor Hearne testified at a Congressional hearing just three days after the creation of his phony organization in March, he identified himself only as a "long time voting rights advocate". Apparently he forgot to mention his or Dyke's direct connection with Bush/Cheney and the RNC.
In response to today's long-await report, "Democracy at Risk: The 2004 Election in Ohio", from the DNC on the problems, including massive voter disenfranchisement and other chicanery in Ohio during the 2004 Presidential Election, the ACVR has just released another smokescreen in favor of Voter Disenfranchisement, this time in the form of a Press Release in response to the DNC report.
Pentagon Creating Student Database
Recruiting Tool For Military Raises Privacy Concerns
The Defense Department began working yesterday with a private marketing firm to create a database of high school students ages 16 to 18 and all college students to help the military identify potential recruits in a time of dwindling enlistment in some branches.
The program is provoking a furor among privacy advocates. The new database will include personal information including birth dates, Social Security numbers, e-mail addresses, grade-point averages, ethnicity and what subjects the students are studying.
See, even if parents opt their kids out, there's still a file. Hmmm...

"Give to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself-that is my doctrine."Me and Thomas Paine agree.
That said, fuck Karl Rove.
"Families of September 11" tell Rove to shut the hell up
Families of September 11
"As families whose relatives were victims of the 9/11 terror attacks, we believe it is an outrage that any Democrat, any Republican, any conservative or any liberal, stakes a "high ground" position based upon the September 11th death and destruction. Doing so assumes that all those who died and their loved ones would agree. In truth, some would and some would not. By definition the conduct is divisive and, because it is intended to be self-serving and politicizes 9/11, it is offensive.
"We are calling on Karl Rove to resist his temptations and stop trying to reap political gain in the tragic misfortune of others. His comments are not welcome."
Rove says we "didn't get 9/11."
He means as fodder for the slimiest, most divisive political campaign in our history.
That's because we're not fascist assholes who want to foment a civil war.
My answer to that fat, slobbering, nazi cocksucker is this: They attacked my country, too. The difference was then and is now that I want to find the motherfucker who attacked us, and couldn't care less about the guy who didn't attack us. King Goerge, on the other hand, couldn't care less about the guy who attacked us, and only cares about stealing another country's oil so he and his fascist neocon friends can rule the world and turn my country into a feudal theocracy. Fuck them. All of them. Twice. By gorillas with AIDS.
If we took up some money, maybe we could hire Mary Carey to go fuck Rove to death. It'd only take her two minutes. Then she could go look up the Bush twins.
Hey, Karl, GET THIS!

I'm getting ready. Are you? If you're not sure how, leave your email in COMMENTS.
There has been ONE flag-burning incident that I've been able to document in the past year. Do they really believe the inability to burn flags will turn people into republicans? Doesn't the House have anything better to do? Couldn't they be getting more equipment for the kids in Iraq? Or getting them the hell out of Iraq? Alive, I mean.
If I buy a flag with my money, it's my flag. My private property, just like a shirt, a car or a house. What I do with or to it is none of anyone else's business, including the federal government's, provided it doesn't harm another person. Harm is the operative word here. For example, in order to win a lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove harm. Not a difference of opinion, but harm. Not annoyance, but harm. Not offense to sensibilities, but harm. If I burn my own flag without harming someone else, it's my business, no one else's.
If I fly a flag to express, say, my patriotism, support for a war, in celebration of July 4, or if I just wave it at a president as he passes by in a parade, I'm expressing a political opinion protected by the First Amendment. Conversely, if I burn a flag to express, say, my patriotism, objection to a war, or a president's behavior, I'm expressing a political opinion protected by the First Amendment. The First Amendment exists specifically to enumerate and protect freedoms colonials didn't have under their King George, but that the founding fathers determined to ensure new Americans would have forever.
Under English rule, if you said, "The king is fat," even though he was, you could be imprisoned. The Supreme Court has ruled time and again that, in principle, the First Amendment says that we may say that the king is fat so long as it's true. If we say things that aren't true, then we can cause--here's that word again--harm, and move into the realm of libel (written) and slander (spoken).
Flag burning is neither libel nor slander. It's just unpopular with a lot of people. The First Amendment is crystal clear in protecting unpopular and even offensive political speech. We may dissent any way we choose. What we may not do is shout, "Fire!" in a crowded movie theater (when there isn't a fire) because it can cause--wait for it--harm in the ensuing stampede.
A soldier's oath includes, "I solemnly swear to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Not a word about the flag. It is in defending the Constitution--all of it, even the parts we don't agree with--that we guarantee our freedoms and everyone else's freedoms equally. To date, 1728 soldiers that we know of have died upholding their oaths. The flags on their shoulders represent the Constitution they swore to defend. I wonder how many of them realized that.
The flag is a magnificent symbol of my country, the greatest place to live on Earth. I would never burn a flag, and would discourage others from burning flags. But while the flag is a great symbol of a great nation, it's still only a symbol. The flag didn't create this great country. The Constitution did. The Constitution is infinitely more important because it's a specific document, the very one that expresses what our nation is meant to be. The flag represents the name of our great country. But the Constitution IS the country. We can live without a flag. We cannot live without the Constitution.
Congress would do better to pass an amendment against wiping one's butt with the Constitution as republicans are wont to do. We're now fighting another King Goerge, this time not to gain independence from tyranny, but to maintain it. The flag is not what's at risk of disappearing. It's the Constitution that's being ignored, trampled and used for toilet paper by a tyrant and his followers who would turn out country back in time to the pre-Revolution days of feudalism and theocracy.
It's a tragic day for our country when the flag means more to certain people than the Constitution does.
I wonder how many compassionate, patriotic, chrixtain hate groups will promote the slogan, "Burn fags, not flags."
Also, keep up with Bev Harris, author of "Black Box Voting." (Google)
He really does hate America, doesn't he? Was his first girlfriend a mule?
"Christians everywhere need to ponder the statement of Christ to Pilate, the representative of Roman worldly power, in response to Pilate’s question: “Are you the King of the Jews?” Christ’s reply was: “My Kingdom is not of this world.” Many people claiming to follow Christ have chosen to ignore or to conveniently forget this statement.
For example, George Grant, Executive Director for many years of the immensely popular and powerful Coral Ridge Ministries in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, wrote in his book “The Changing of the Guard: Biblical Principles for Political Action” (pp. 50-51):
“Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land for Jesus Christ -- to have dominion in civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and godliness."
From all reports, and I do mean all, the cadets who were bullied by compassionate theo-fascist classmates, faculty and cadre would not agree with this assessment.
"...This is no more a war on terrorism than World War II was a war on submarines. It’s not just semantics . . . Words have meaning. And these words are leading us down to the wrong concept.”

Given that they ought not be there in the first place, how can you "support the troops" by sending them off to fight without what they need? I guess it's a self-answering question since sacrifices must be made for us to keep paying Halliburton, yes?

Bush promotes funding for religious groups
WASHINGTON - President Bush on Tuesday told the Southern Baptist Convention a compassionate society would rely more on religious groups to provide social services and oppose expanded embryonic stem cell research.
Bush renewed his call for Congress to pass a law that would allow religious groups with federal contracts to consider questions of faith when making employment decisions. With such legislation long stalled, the president has bypassed Congress and made more money available to such groups through executive orders and regulations.
I propose those same groups provide soldiers for unnecessary wars, too.
That is why we're at war, isn't it? To defend their freedom to waste our money?

"In interviews I conducted last fall, a well-known journalist, biographer and Bush family friend who worked for a time with Bush on a ghostwritten memoir said that an Iraq war was always on Bush's brain.
"He was thinking about invading Iraq in 1999," said author and Houston Chronicle journalist Mickey Herskowitz. "It was on his mind. He said, 'One of the keys to being seen as a great leader is to be seen as a commander-in-chief.' And he said, 'My father had all this political capital built up when he drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait and he wasted it.' He went on, 'If I have a chance to invade…, if I had that much capital, I'm not going to waste it. I'm going to get everything passed that I want to get passed and I'm going to have a successful presidency.'"
Read this book review, "Who Would Jesus Kill?" for a good example. I'm not sure if he means this, or if he's pulling our legs. We should show it around and ask the theo-fascists in our daily lives to comment on it.

Marine Pfc. Jeremy Tod, 19, called home with news that his superiors were urging him and fellow Marines to buy special military equipment, including flak jackets with armor plating, to enhance the prospects of their survival. The message was that such purchases were to be made by Marines with their own money.
"He said they strongly suggested he get this equipment because when they get to Iraq they will wish they had," Tod said. Total estimated cost: $600.
Tod said his son's call about two weeks ago from the Marine Corps Air Station-Yuma was a sobering reminder that the military is not prepared to equip Pfc. Tod and fellow Marines with the best equipment.
Besides the essential flak jacket with steel "trauma" plates, the shopping list for the 5-foot-5 155-pound Marine included a Camelbak (water pouch) special ballistic goggles, knee and elbow pads, a "drop pouch" to hold ammunition magazines and a load-bearing vest.
Tod, 45, is picking up the tab for a son who blew most of his savings on a new pickup truck. And dad says he is tempted to forward the bill to the Pentagon. "Or maybe I can write it off in taxes," he said with a grin.
Attacks preceded congressional OK
"It seemed clear that Bush had made up his mind to take military action, even if the timing was not yet decided," the document says. "But the case was thin. Saddam was not threatening his neighbours, and his WMD capability was less than that of Libya, North Korea or Iran." As the document states, "the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."
The document is damning, particularly coupled with the testimony of former Bush ghostwriter Mickey Herskowitz that Bush was talking about invading Iraq as early as 1999. But it's even more disturbing as we start learning that this administration began actively fighting the Iraq war well in advance of the March 2003 official attack -- before both congressional authorization in October 2002 and the United Nations' November resolution requiring Saddam Hussein to open the country to inspectors.
WASHINGTON - The federal agency in charge of aviation security collected extensive personal information about airline passengers even though Congress forbade it and officials said they wouldn't do it, according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

Chrixtain time travelers can keep libruls from ever making America what the founding fathers designedWhat if they build this thing, then go back and kill Gen. Smedley Butler before he rats out the fascists who were planning to overthrow FDR in 1933?
They could go back and kill Lincoln before he freed the slaves.
They could even go back and help the British defeat Washington so their ancestors never have to be bothered with libruls in the first place.
And they can go back even further and lay claim to all the land that sits over oil fields. Good news is, they can only go back 6000 years. I mean, that's how old the Earth is, right?

Chickenhawks can be any age, either gender
You can still find plenty of folks arguing that we have to stay the course, or even raise the stakes by sending more troops to the war zone. But from the very start of this war the loudest of the flag-waving hawks were those who were safely beyond military age themselves and were unwilling to send their own children off to fight.
A woman in the affluent New York suburb of Ridgewood, N.J., who has a daughter in high school and a younger son, said: "I would not want my children to go. If there wasn't a war it would be different. I support the war and I think we need to be there. But it's not going well. It's becoming like Vietnam. It's a very bad situation. But we can't leave."
Is it just me, or does she sound like an alcoholic who knows she needs to quit drinking, but can't?

All rethuglicons are criminals and should be locked up. Ohio is a sewer and should be sold to...I don't care, just move it somewhere else.We'll throw in Florida for nothing.
Ohio rethuglicons knew about "Coingate" before November elections, but...wait for it...covered it up so it wouldn't hurt King Goerge.
At the same time - beneath the surface and out of public view - allegations were swirling that Tom Noe had laundered contributions into President Bush's campaign, and facts were emerging that the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation had lost $215 million meant for injured workers in a Bermuda hedge-fund.
Now, more than six months later, those bombshells have created the biggest state government scandal in decades in Ohio. Democrats are charging that Republican leaders suppressed the potentially explosive information until all the votes were counted to save the President's re-election campaign.
The Blade has learned that the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Ohio knew of the campaign-finance allegations against Mr. Noe about three weeks before the November, 2004, election, giving it little time to do a thorough investigation.
Mr. Noe, a Toledo-area coin dealer, was chairman of the Bush-Cheney campaign in northwest Ohio.
WMD claims were 'totally implausible'
A key Foreign Office diplomat responsible for liaising with UN inspectors says today that claims the government made about Iraq's weapons programme were "totally implausible".
He tells the Guardian: "I'd read the intelligence on WMD for four and a half years, and there's no way that it could sustain the case that the government was presenting. All of my colleagues knew that, too".
The violation of a sovereign nation's airspace is an act of war in and of itself. But the war with Iran has gone far beyond the intelligence-gathering phase.
President Bush has taken advantage of the sweeping powers granted to him in the aftermath of 11 September 2001, to wage a global war against terror and to initiate several covert offensive operations inside Iran.
The most visible of these is the CIA-backed actions recently undertaken by the Mujahadeen el-Khalq, or MEK, an Iranian opposition group, once run by Saddam Hussein's dreaded intelligence services, but now working exclusively for the CIA's Directorate of Operations.
It is bitter irony that the CIA is using a group still labelled as a terrorist organisation, a group trained in the art of explosive assassination by the same intelligence units of the former regime of Saddam Hussein, who are slaughtering American soldiers in Iraq today, to carry out remote bombings in Iran of the sort that the Bush administration condemns on a daily basis inside Iraq.
Theo-physicists at Falwell's Liberty University prove conclusively that there is a finite number of possible marriages in the universe. Ergo, if fags and dykes tie the knot, others get pushed out the other end of the pipeline. This isn't political talk, this is true. (TIPTTIT).
We're always glad such people are chrixtains. Imagine what raging assholes they'd be without Jesus in their hearts.
It probably won't ever find a distributor willing to stand up to the theo-fascists, so buying a copy may be your only way to see this important new movie.
At least we can infer that since he took their money for his campaign in North Carolina. It's such a pretty state; why doesn't he go contaminate Alabama or Mississippi. Or SOUTH Carolina? They're still fighting the Civil War there, so he should be
Notice what group published this article. They're called, "christians," not "chrixtains."
JOKE OF THE DAY: Why did the young rethuglicon chickenhawk cross the road?
To avoid the Army recruiter. (Ba-dump-Ching!)
TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's spy chief used just two words to respond to White House ridicule of last week's presidential election: "Thank you." His sarcasm was barely hidden. The backfire on Washington was more evident.
The sharp barbs from President Bush were widely seen in Iran as damaging to pro-reform groups because the comments appeared to have boosted turnout among hard-liners in Friday's election — with the result being that an ultraconservative now is in a two-way showdown for the presidency.
"I say to Bush: `Thank you,'" quipped Intelligence Minister Ali Yunesi. "He motivated people to vote in retaliation."
And God put this guy in office? Twice? If that's true, God had better stay out of politics from now on.
Do they really believe we don't keep track of their lies?
When will the Dems muster up some collective spinal fluid and impeach these criminals?
King Goerge doesn't recognize Iran's rigged election, but seems okay with benefitting from two of oursTEHRAN, June 18 - The race for the presidency in Iran was thrown into turmoil on Saturday when the third-place finisher accused conservative hard-liners of rigging the election and cutting him out of the runoff vote next week, which will be between a former president and the conservative mayor of Tehran.
How could this happen? As Mr. Spock would say, there are two possibilities: One, King Goerge's people are incompetent, and lie to cover up their lack of qualifications for their jobs. Two, they know King Goerge's talk about terists is just that, talk, and that there really aren't hordes of ragheaded terists who hate us for our freedoms and are coming here to kill us all .
In sworn testimony that contrasts with their promises to the public, the FBI managers who crafted the post-Sept. 11 fight against terrorism say expertise about the Mideast or terrorism was not important in choosing the agents they promoted to top jobs.
(Which time, Goerge?)
September 2001--September 2003: "Saddam helped with 9/11."
September 2003: "We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th."
June 2005: “We went to war because we were attacked."

Meanwhile, 1720 GIs have died for his lies.
Or is it really 6210...as of last January?
Goto lower right of page, see posts from 6/18 2005. They were supposed to be on this page.
Okay, he's your boy. What are you going to do about him?
Fuck King Goerge and his twins who ought to be driving five-ton trucks down IED-lined highways in Iraq. And while we're at it, fuck Cheney and his criminal friends at Halliburton. And his little dog, too.
I'll gladly pay for a truckload of tar and feathers.
King Goerge's feelings hurt that people don't like being lied to or watching their kids die for those liesYeah, well, fuck him for the lying, corrupt, fascist warmonger he is.
The president’s (whining and snivvling) follow(s) complaints in his own party that the public has been misled about the coalition’s difficulties in Iraq.
Almost 100 Americans and several hundred Iraqis have died since the beginning of last month despite a claim by Dick Cheney, the vice-president, that the insurgency was in its “last throes”. (Thank God they aren't still fighting hard.)
There have also been complaints in military circles that the president has recently been more concerned with his proposed reforms to the US pension system — which is supposedly in danger of collapsing by 2047 — than in publicly discussing the effort in Iraq.
“He’s out in the sticks talking about a social security problem that might occur in 2047, and meanwhile the boys in Iraq are getting killed and injured every day,” said one officer, effectively killing his career. “Don’t you find that a little odd?”
With mid-term elections next year, Republican senators and congressmen have been complaining that continuing deadlock in Iraq will drag their party to defeats that appeared unthinkable after Bush’s re-election last November. (They don't give a shit about 1720 dead GIs, only re-election. Fuck them until they send their kids to war. And even then, fuck them.)
“People are breaking ranks and saying, ‘You know what, things are not hunky-dory’,” said Joseph Crowley, a New York Democrat congressman who was surprised when an initiative he sponsored calling for an exit strategy was supported by 13 Republicans.
"We went to war (with people who didn't and couldn't attack us) because we were attacked (by somebody else who didn't and wouldn't cooperate with those other people who didn't and couldn't attack us), and we are at war (in a country that didn't and couldn't attack us) today because there are still people (whom we can't find) out there (somewhere, we have no idea where) who want to harm our country and hurt our citizens (because I started this war)," the Piece-of-Shit-in-Thief said Saturday in his weekly radio pack of lies and bullshit.
Is a bag of burned Korans a hate crime when we're at war, but not with Islam itself?
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — A bag stuffed with burned Korans was left in front of an Islamic center, shocking members when they arrived for prayers.
