"We are going to be in such a fix when this
war is over, or before this war is over.
Our grandchildren's grandchildren are going to be paying for this war. I look at
our future as, I'm sorry, being very, very dark."
--Walter Cronkite, as angry as the rest of us
What did he mean?
If the nation escalates to "red alert," which is the highest in the color-coded readiness against terror,
you will be assumed by authorities to be the enemy if you so much as venture outside your home,
the state's anti-terror czar says.
"This state is on top of it," said Sid Caspersen,
New Jersey's director of the office of counter-terrorism.
Caspersen, a former FBI agent, was briefing reporters, alongside Gov. James E. McGreevey, on Thursday,
when for the first time he disclosed the realities of how a red alert would shut the state down.
A red alert would also tear away virtually all personal freedoms to move about and associate.
If George W. Bush orders U.S. forces to unleash his “shock and awe” onslaught against Iraq without UN sanctions,
he will be opening American servicemen to a kind of double jeopardy. First, they will be risking their lives in a combat
strategy far riskier than is publicly acknowledged. Second, any significant taking of civilian life could leave both officers
and enlisted men liable for future war-crimes charges.
for the Peace?
by Bob Herbert
"Do most Americans understand that even as we are launching one of the most devastating air assaults in the history of warfare,
private companies are lining up to reap the riches of rebuilding the very structures we're in the process of destroying? Companies
like Halliburton, Schlumberger and the Bechtel Group understand this conflict a heck of a lot better than most of the men and
women who will fight and die in it, or the armchair patriots who'll be watching on CNN and cheering them on. It's not unpatriotic
to say that there are billions of dollars to be made in Iraq and that the gold rush is already under way. It's simply a matter of fact."
“This business of 'supporting the troops' is
a fig leaf with which Democratic
leaders can protect themselves against criticism. If they supported the troops,
they wouldn't be saying what they're saying in the first place.”
--Rush the Truth Molester
Remember when Clinton had troops in the field, Rush would mock
and ridicule the military
but only in the second and third hours because his first hour was on Armed Forces Radio.
Tust me, once we get the radio thing going, we'll have dozens
or hundreds of sound files
of Rush's own voice at our fingertips that we'll use forever.
The truth is, the Republicans impeached Clinton while we were
but now we're supposed to remain silent and kiss the Emporer's ring?
I'm a man, not a monkey!
And why the Azores, remote islands 900 miles off Portugal? Because no European leader wishes to
appear on TV entering the servants door at the White House, while Bush's presence in London or
Madrid would have sparked massive anti-war demonstrations on a scale never witnessed.
Meanwhile, fools busy pouring Bordeaux wine
into gutters and re-naming French fries--will
"Freedom ticklers" be next?--had best start boycotting Canadian bacon and picketing Taco Bells,
because Bush couldn't persuade even our closest neighbors. Polls show that majorities in Ireland,
for godsake, consider Junior a greater threat to world peace than Saddam Hussein.
One question. I wonder how many pregnant
women there are in Iraq that will die
by the hand of bush's death machine. Is killing a pregnant woman a no_birth abortion?
If so I wonder how the tinkerheads that promote "right to life" reconcile this with their lust for war?

Subject: Hey Bart
I just want to tell you that this may be
a long battle, but I can't think of anything more worthy to fight.
I see morons on the yahoo boards saying "yeah, Russia's next, they're nothing". Well, living through the cold war,
we know that's not true, and when they have an emergency session, it's for a reason. Someone answered that they
have something to the effect of 24,000 nukes. The least that could happen here is a start of the cold war again.
The Russians fought a brutal battle with
the nazis, and had one of the most powerful military forces this world
has ever seen.
Any of these morons calling for war with them may just get their wish, thanks to the BFEE. Just think, they were our allies
after the cold war! How could one unelected moron puppet cause this much damage in this short of a time?
Anyway, that's not why I'm writing.
I'm writing just to tell you that your site has truly been a hammer of

While the president seemed to endorse Mr. Powell's attempt at diplomacy, it's now clear that he simultaneously
adopted Dick Cheney's plan for a military buildup that was bound to upend the diplomatic effort.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday
that even though Mr. Cheney receded into the background for months,
he was choreographing events like Pluto, lord of the underground. In his undisclosed locations, he had dinner parties
with anti-Saddam intellectuals and reached out to Iraqi dissidents and plotted the war with his old pal Rummy, letting
Colin Powell vainly spend his prestige at the mealy-mouthed U.N.
We'll never know from the ultrasecretive
vice president whether he also touched base with oil industry types, since
Halliburton and other big construction companies that give to Republicans now stand to make millions in contracts
for reconstructing Iraq and reviving its oil industry.
They're going to bill us for reviving Iraq's oil industry.
Veterans Against Iraq War
"Some of my friends think that we are not supporting the men and women in uniform if we protest the war.
I tell them we are supporting them in the only way that shows we value their lives more than we want to

"In Iraq's last presidential election, Saddam
Hussein received 100% of the votes, a fact we know
because officials said so. Instead, the Iraqis can expect a choice between two different American
electoral models, either (a) the one employed in Florida in 2000, designed to ensure that the candidate
with the most support loses, or (b) the modern version, as applied in more advanced states, where
people vote on touch-screen computers. No one has yet got 100% of the votes by this method but
Republican senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska did get 83%. We know this because the company
that built the machines - which he part-owns - said so."
--Matthew Engel, Iraq, the 51st state, guardian.co.uk
Over the past several months, as the President and his aides promoted the arguments for war,
the American people came to believe that the Iraqi dictatorship has nuclear weapons. They believe
that the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon came from Iraq.
Most importantly, they believe a single "big lie": that Saddam Hussein worked in concert with
Al Qaeda to perpetrate the atrocities of Sept. 11.
The President has encouraged that false
idea, even though he knows very well that our intelligence
agencies have uncovered little information to substantiate the charge. ...If Mr. Bush actually does
possess "good evidence" of Iraqi complicity with the Islamist terror network, he should turn it over
to his own government right away—because, so far, they haven’t been able to find any.
"Free nations have a duty to defend our people
by uniting against the violent."

Subject: The War Begins
At 2 AM this morning I woke up and turned
on the TV only to learn Bush had finally started his dirty little war.
I'm a veteran of the Korean War and in September I will be 70 years old but this morning for the first time in
my life I am ashamed to be an American.
I do not support this war or the "idiot",
"illegitimate" president we have.
My prayer is that American will now wake up and I will still be around when we get rid of him, hopefully in 2004.
I'm only writing this to say I support your
effort in opposing this administration and I hope you continue to speak
against this corrupt president and his administration even though he has his war going on. I enjoy reading BARTCOP
and it's good to get a laugh once in awhile in the midst of all the corruption and propaganda being disseminated by the
media whores and this evil, mean spirited president we have and I honestly do believe he is "inherently evil", rotten clear to the bone.

On the eve of the US-led pre-emptive strike
against the people of Iraq I ask you this:
What will you say when the citizens of Baghdad defend themselves from the invaders and their army of occupation.
Is that a question?
What will I say when Baghdad defends itself?
Gee, that's hard to say - what will you say when the sun rises tomorrow?
I'm not trying to avoid your question - I'm trying to decifer it.
How soon are you going to turn against them
and ask that they be strafed and killed and bombed again
and again and again and again until they are either ALL dead or ALL totally submissive.
How soon will I call for that?
Probably right after they do something that makes me angry as hell.
So far, the "citizens of Baghdad" haven't done a damn thing to me.
I generally only want people dead who have done some really bad things.
Are you under the impression I'm for this war?
Gee, I've been so wishy-washy about bombing Iraq, I can see where you'd be confused.
I should pray on that.
How many days should elapse after the declaration
of war before the US-led forces Shock and Awe
the nation of Somalia in accordance to your own wishes and directives?
Wait, I get it - you're trying to build a trap, right?
I don't do traps.
That good a trap hasn't been invented.
What in the world are you trying to get at?

You bet your ass I wrote that.
If it's your opinion Al Qaeda should be allowed to drag the bodies of our soldiers around town and
not pay a price for that, well, let's just say you're no wartime consiglieri. Only a real idiot would
think that paragraph means we should drag innocent people out of their homes and murder them.
Only a real numbnut would intentionally misread that to suggest I support "murdering Somalia."
I obviously meant "while we're in the area, we owe the guilty a Number Six."
Koresh, we have a true madman starting his worldwide reign of
terror and you're so totally blind
that you think I'm the guy who needs to be stopped?
Remind us BartKKKop, why it is that you
have called for the torture and death of the Somali people?
Will you also call for the treatment towards the Iraqi people?
Yeah, *I'm* the Nazi.
Why don't you print up 1,000 bumper stickers that say that and let me know how they're selling?
Promise me you'll be on the radio show?

"Dennis, darling, you know you are in great
danger of becoming Sammy Davis Jr."
--Arianna Huffington to Dennis Miller on Bill Maher
I'm so old, I get this joke. For you younger
kids, here's what I remember:
During the Vietnam War, Sammy Davis came out for Nixon, the bastard who won in 1968 because
A. RFK had been n\murdered by those who hate Democrats
B. He promised to end the war in Vietnam. (It took him five years and tens of thousands of lives)
As the nation turned, Sammy took heat for
being "pro-death," and once he realized his mistake,
he backed away from Nixon and said, "I'll never do that again."
If you watch the old SNL reruns, you'll
eventually see a skit where "Sammy" and "Nixon"
are talking and Sammy keeps giving Nixon the high-five. Each time they touch hands, "Nixon"
looks at his palm to see if any black came off.
So, I bought my mixing board.
