"The fire grew, my team leader's beside me
now yelling something.... He couldn't get his door,
pleading for me to hurry - more shouting. Seems so far away, like a voice at the end of a tunnel.
Got to get the door open or we're going to die. Where's my gunner? I close my eyes and throw
myself into the door. Still doesn't budge. This is it. This is how I am going to die.
No! I open my eyes and throw myself once more. Oh Thank God, it opened...."

"My greatest desire is that the president's
daughters would go to Iraq and do what she was doing.
Then I think there would be a wise decision on what we're doing there."

When the body of US soldier Artimus Brassfield was flown to the military mortuary at Dover,
there were no TV pictures of a flag-covered coffin and hero's salute - the White House has
banned media coverage at the base. But can Bush's efforts to hide the body bags quell
growing public disquiet over the death toll in Iraq?
Chopper shot, six more dead
An Army helicopter crashed Friday into a riverbank near Tikrit, killing six U.S. soldiers.
It probably was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, an officer said.
Two Americans also were killed in
separate attacks Thursday and Friday in Mosul,
raising concerns that the insurgency was spreading north. .

It is interesting how Booger has bought
It is privately owned and not subject to any scrutiny from public stockholders.
No wonder they are a favorite of the B.F.E.E.

Turkey has decided against deploying troops to help the Boy Plunder.
NATO's only Muslim country, Turkey has been
troubled by how to react to
Bush's war, first barring U.S. troops from attacking its neighbor from Turkish soil,
then, only after much bribes were paid, last month agreeing to send Turkish troops
to help its biggest ally in the occupation of Iraq.
Now Ankara has changed its mind once again.

Great radio show #18, g'damn I can't stand Oreilly.

A marijuana pill appeared to relieve some of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis
in the first scientifically rigorous study of the strongly debated drug.
The research, published this week in The
Lancet medical journal, found that even though
improvements could not be detected by doctors' tests, a greater proportion of patients taking
the drug reported reduced pain and muscle stiffness than those taking fake capsules.
Once again, we don't want to help the sick

No, we want to please the Invisible Cloud Being - that's what's important.

The super-patriots in the GOP praised veterans -- then cut funding
Yesterday evening on the House floor, Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., offered some angry perspective on the
Bush administration's "support for our troops." A Vietnam-era Air Force veteran (although his own Web site
omits that fact), DeFazio rose to contest the happy-face rhetoric of his Republican colleagues in anticipation
of Veterans Day next Wednesday. DeFazio's remarks about the real record of the self-styled super-patriots
in the GOP deserve to be quoted at length.

The government promised to defend a new law banning certain late-term abortions,
despite rulings by three federal judges who blocked its enforcement so legal challenges

Howard Dean's remarks about the need to appeal to white Southerners could certainly have been better phrased.
But his rivals for the Democratic nomination should be ashamed of their reaction. They know what he was trying
to say - and it wasn't that his party should go soft on racism. By playing gotcha, by seizing on the chance to take
the front-runner down a peg, they damaged the cause they claim to serve - and missed a chance to confront the
real issue he raised.
A three-sentence description of the arc
of American politics over the past 70 years would run like this:
First, Democrats and moderate Republicans created institutions - above all, Social Security and Medicare
- that provided a measure of financial security to ordinary working Americans. The biggest beneficiaries of
these institutions were African-Americans and working-class Southern whites, and both were part of the
moderate-to-liberal coalition that dominated American politics until the 1960's.
But the right opened an increasingly effective
counterattack, with a strategy that included using racially charged
symbolism to get Southern whites to vote against their own economic interests. All Mr. Dean was saying was
that Democrats need to understand and counter this strategy.

Bartolo News from Latin America
When I saw these links on Bartcop citing Noam Chomsky in reference to Cuba,
the web-site's legitamacy took a severe hit in my eyes; a guy with progressive views, for the most part.
I need to say something here...
I get a lot of this and it makes no sense.
To be Koresh-honest with you, I don't know who Noam Chomsky is.
I've heard the name a lot, and I'm guess he(?)'s a writer, but he doesn't speak for me
until I know who he is and what he stands for - that kind of thing.
The idea that a mention of his name should discredit me is not
If you see an idea here (Marc Perkel's last letter is an example) that doesn't mean I'm willing
to die for that person's idea, it just means it's an idea somebody had that seemed interesting.
I'm not shy about my opinions.
Generally, when I print something I say, "I agree," or "That guy's a nut,"
but the mention of an idea is no excuse for someone to have a cow, understand?
Cheeses, sometimes I wonder if we're actually the side that promotes tolerance...
"I'm pretty blessed to be in Saddam's home
town, Tikrit. It's very nice here
other than the fact that we're in Iraq and there ain't no escaping it."
--Artimus Brassfield, 4th infantry division, in an email to his father
"Evidently the war is over and yet we still
have people dying every day. He was a sitting duck.
Who is going to be the next person?"
--Cary Brassfield, father of Artimus Brassfield who died October 24th Attribution
A man charged with entering a restricted area during an October 2002 presidential visit
has subpoenaed John Ashcroft and Karl Rove to testify at his trial next week.
"We intend to find out from Mr. Ashcroft why and
how the decision to prosecute Mr. Bursey
was reached," said Lewis Pitts, Bursey's lawyer. Bursey has said he was arrested because he
was carrying a sign that read "No War for Oil" and contends others with pro-Bush placards
were allowed to stay in the area. The U.S. attorney's office has said Bursey was arrested
not for what his sign said but for where he was carrying it.
That's obviously false since the pro-Bush sign carriers were welcome near Mein Furhrer.
I did it again
First thing this morning, I had an idea for the page so I clicked
The box came up that said, "This page has been modified. Do you want to see
the modifications or do you keep the original version?"
Groggy, I hit "Modify" and lost today's page.
All I had left was what was posted in the members section last night.
This happens to me a lot, more than most, I'd say.
A person in my position gets asked by the computer 50 times a day,
"Do you want to replace 'index' with what you just wrote?" and usually
the answer is yes, but sometimes that costs me a day's work and I f-ing hate that.
We have more problems:
I've had to wipe my C drive clean twice so far this year, and now we're looking at Number Three.
The guy who fixed me up last time sold me a bootleg copy of Windows XP, so I can't
get any updates or patches or whatever they're called from Microsteal, so we have to
once again wipe the C drive clean and start allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll over.
This does not make us happy.
So, sometime very soon, we'll be down for a day or two while I
completely wiped out C drive and once again start to rebuild every goddamn thing.

"At some point, however, both Mr Bush and the rest of Washington will be forced to leave this fiscal Neverland.
When will that be? Many look to the late 1980s and early 1990s as a model.
This time the turnaround will be much tougher.
There will be no "peace dividend" from the end of the cold war.
As baby-boomers retire, the pressure from entitlement spending will be more acute. Set against this background,
the path back to a sustainable fiscal policy will be extremely painful, even without any dramatic fiscal crisis.
Long after Dubya is back on his ranch, Americans will be trying to recover from the mess he created."
This is from The Economist.
Look at the chart - the line soaring upwards was due to our last elected president.

Howard Dean's 'problem'
I still fail to see what's so wrong about what Dean said about
handjobs from Dixie.
Talk radio is pretending he said, "Let's rape all the nuns," or something.
What did he say that was so wrong?
For what should he apologize? Telling the truth?
Are they saying there are no rednecks with shotguns and Dixie
Or that Dean shouldn't try to get their vote?
Are blacks upset with Dean?
I don't think the feigning-outrage nazi's know what he did wrong,
I heard 3-4 of them today, and it was all the same words in the same order:
"Can you believe that? Can you believe Dean said that?"
Then they'd play the clip - again.
"I think this is proof Dean is very unstable. He can't control himself."
Then they'd play the clip - again.
"Doesn't Dean understand what he's saying? Does he not recognize his own words?"
Then they'd play the clip - again.
That Sullivan prostitute that's subbing for Rush was the worst:
"I thought Dean was going to go postal and murder everyone in the room - I really did..."
Then he'd play the clip - again.
This'll sound strange, but maybe I'm not stupid enough to get what they mean?

"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if
the people tolerate the growth of private power
to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence,
is Fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any controlling private power."

Doesn't Stop With Bush
by Helen Thomas, who can't be bought
"There have been presidents who have taken blame for a catastrophe, bad judgment or a plan gone wrong.
In the case of the Iraq attack, President Bush may yet own up to his mistake in leading the nation to war
on the basis of false advertising about weapons of mass destruction and Iraq as haven of Sept. 11 terrorists.
That rhetoric in the rush to war has turned out to be a bunch of hooey.
But until that day of reckoning, the buck-passing
is picking up speed. For example, it looks like the CIA is
going to be the scapegoat for the discredited information concerning Saddam's arsenal of WMD. No such
weapons have been found, despite the pre-war insistence by Bush and others in his administration that
Saddam had hoards of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.
The White House has the choice of either
1) blaming the CIA for bad intelligence or 2) admitting that the
entire war was a pretext to keep Bush buoyant in the public opinion polls as a war-time president.
Of the two, option No. 1 is much preferred. This means the designated fall guy is likely to be CIA Director
George Tenet, whose job may be jeopardy."

As told by George Shultz. - saw on on the BartCop Forum
They were in Geneva for what I believe was
a conference on the Salt II treaty.
After arriving Shultz hands Reagan all the briefs for what he is supposed to talk about the next day.
The next morning Shultz asks Reagan if he has any questions about the breifs.
Reagan say, "Well, The Sound of Music was
on last night and I just love Julie Andrews.
So after watching that I went to sleep."
Shultz said he sat there frozen. He was
in a total panic. One of the most important events of Reagan's
presidency, the one thing that would probably be his biggest legacy, a reduction in the nuclear arsenals
for the world's two superpowers, and Reagan is clueless. After a long silence Shultz says OK, we will go to plan b.
Reagan asks what plan b is.
Shultz says he doesn't know, they will have to wing it.
I wasn't aware of this particular story, but it's classic Reagan.
Like the Pinhead, Reagan slept and smiled thru his presidency without ever having a clue.
My favorite Reagan story, and forgive me if I have the wrong name,
but Reagan had a black Secretary of HUD
or HEW or whatever they call that, I think his name was Louis Sullivan, but that's just a guess and Reagan ran into
this guy at a meeting and said, "Good to meet you, Mr Mayor."
Reagan was so lost with Alzheimers, he couldn't recognize his

It was strange because he was speaking perfect English.

Jessica Lynch Rejects Military Portrayal
Jessica Lynch (USA-Hero) said the U.S. military was wrong to manipulate the story
of her dramatic rescue and should not have filmed it in the first place.
She told Diane Peroxide in an interview to air Tuesday that she
was bothered by the military's portrayal of her ordeal.
"They used me as a way to symbolize all this stuff,'' she said in an excerpt from the interview.
"It hurt in a way that people (She means the Illegal Usurper) would
make up stories that they had no truth about,'' she said.
She also said there was no reason for her rescue from an Iraqi hospital to be filmed. ``It's wrong,'' she said.
In an effort to legitimize the murder of Baghdad, the B.F.E.E. had three cameras there
to film the "dramatic rescue," where all doors were unlocked and no soldiers were present.

Subject: End the war
Once again, the GOP center of the world
(Houston) has spoken, see attachment.
According to this 'non-scientific' poll from a popular tv station's web site, 60% either

People are sick of this crap!!
I really enjoyed the last radio show, featuring Bill O'Liely~
Humping the Pantleg of the Economy
During the 2000 presidential campaign, Bush is alleged to have explained his recipe for success with
a flippant, "I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity." He then went on to assure the Bob Woodward
-- "I will seize the (9-11) opportunity to achieve great goals..."
It must be true. Can anyone deny that Bush
has frantically humped the pantleg of 9-11 -- or that such an
atrocity was a golden opportunity for BushCo warmongers who were scratching their heads trying to
figure out how to bring about a corporate coup here at home while destroying all mechanisims of diplomacy
and civilized relations abroad?
Can anyone deny that the citizens of the
world are mesmerized with terror as they stare into the double-barrells
of the genocidal shotgun in the hands of a man they increasingly consider quite mad?
Bush has done some seizing, all right.
He's seized all the money in the Treasury and he seized the chance to start a costly war.
Subject: Jessica Lynch
I'm sending you a link
here. Jessica Lynch did not say that she was raped.
She says that she was told
that she was raped, and she has no memory of the incident. I, personally, doubt that she was raped.
Someone, who would be such an animal as
to rape a woman who was unconscious and had numerous
broken bones, would not then take her to the hospital for care. He would either just kill her, or leave her for dead.
The rape story just doesn't make any sense, unless it is to spur the hatred of Americans against Iraqis.
Jim, my good friend, I disagree.
True, she has no memory of the rape.
The doctors told her that their medical tests indicate she was raped.
Also, there's no reason to assume the man/men who raped her
are the same people who delivered her to the hospital.

Subject: candidates and bartcop stickers
I'm certainly a fan of your website, but
I'd ask that you take careful consideration about who's holding your stickers
Wesley Clark or Howard Dean holding one would be political death. Despite your religious beliefs there are a vast majority
of Americans who believe in, at the very least, God. A major candidate appearing to endorse the website of an outspoken atheist
would never be elected. It would spread like wildfire through, certainly, the conservative circles and most likely make it into the
mainstream news in late October. The picture of Dean standing next to a guy flashing one of your stickers is a hairsbreath away
from chaos and your request for a picture of Wesley Clark could be bad news. Chances are the campaign staffs of the candidates
have told them not to pose with messages or the like, but a confusing moment on the campaign trail could mean four more years of Bush.
You're saying America can't handle the truth?
That's probably true, but my rejection of religious insanity isn't the cornerstone of this page.
This isn't onlyafoolbelievesinGod.com
But besides another lying politician, is any endorsement "safe?"
Every person with an endorsement comes with baggage.
It would be sad if the "baggage" of honesty hurt a candidate,
but we live in sad times, so that's probably true.
Have a good time today. Take your kids out to dinner, but some toys for the wife.

Subject: the real Jessica Lynch
There's been some debate on this page as
to whether Jessica Lynch's action rose to the level of "heroism."
I think it's safe to say any doubts have been put to rest, considering her courage to refute the lies told by the "Defense" Department.
"It hurt in a way that people would make up
stories that they had no truth about. Only I would have
been able to know that, because the other four people on my vehicle aren't here to tell the story.
So I would have been the only one able to say, yeah, I went down shooting. But I didn't."
