"That makes you feel like you fought for nothing

"I picked up my leg and put it on the bench

--Sgt Erick Castro, after an RPG drilled through the back of his armored M113 "battle taxi" Attribution
All the trillions we pay in taxes and we can't give these men
an armored vehicle that can stop an RPG?
I guess the Carlyle Group wanted to save a few dollars, making the B.F.E.E. more money every day.
Al Qaeda is suspected of staging a suicide attack on Sunday that killed at least 17 people
and wounded 120 in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. In May, a triple suicide bombing on a
Riyadh housing complex killed 35 people.
"It is quite clear to me that al Qaeda wants
to take down the royal family and the government
of Saudi Arabia," U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage told Saudi TV.
Washington has been pressing Saudi Arabia
to combat al Qaeda, believed responsible for
the attacks on 9-11. Fifteen out of the 19 attackers were Saudis.
Am I the only one who is suspicious about this?
Each time Osama makes a move, President Pinhead's hand gets stronger.
This latest attack reinforces Bush's militancy and legitimizes
his Daddy's owners, the Saudis.
This attack will raise the price of oil and make Bush stronger for the 2004 election.
It's life-and-death that we remember Bart's Law #2.
Any time a person
or entity makes a "mistake" that puts extra money (or approval points)
in their pocket, expect them to make that "mistake" again and again and again.
Each time Bush's good friend Osama blows people up, Bush is seen as President Protect Us.
Expect Osama to be helping Bush a lot in the next 11 months.
Bush needs Osama.
Bush would be at 30 percent without Osama.

In Baghdad, NBC Comes Under Fire, Twice
"It was a world exclusive for NBC's Jim Miklaszewski, the only television reporter able to show
footage of the devastating attack on a Baghdad hotel that narrowly missed Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz.
But some U.S. officials in Iraq raised fierce objections and tried to block Miklaszewski and his cameraman from
filming the scene. "The NBC journalists conducted themselves in a wholly inappropriate, uncaring and insensitive manner,"
says Gary Thatcher, communications chief for the U.S. occupation authority. "Instead of rendering or summoning aid,
they focused on gathering video footage of people in agonizingly painful situations . . . in order to boost the ratings."
NBC, the home of call-it-early-for Bush and that extra-fair and objective reporter Tim Russert?
dealt with Nazis until 1951
...but we forgive them because Dubya is vital to our future
After the seizures in late 1942 of five U.S. enterprises he managed on behalf of Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen,
Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, failed to divest himself of more than a dozen
"enemy national" relationships that continued until as late as 1951, newly-discovered U.S. government documents reveal.
Furthermore, the records show that Bush and his colleagues routinely attempted to conceal their activities from government investigators.
Bush's partners in the secret web of Thyssen-controlled
ventures included former New York Governor W. Averell Harriman
and his younger brother, E. Roland Harriman. Their quarter-century of Nazi financial transactions, from 1924-1951,
were conducted by the New York private banking firm, Brown Brothers Harriman.
The White House did not return phone calls
...and the networks, talk radio and the media in genral refuse
to report this story because
they are covering up the truth so they can get their precious tax cuts again next year.

They're re-writing history to portray Bush as less of a murdering monster.
How will history remember Bush if the news is censored in the present, right before our damned eyes?
Ralph Nader called Democrats "chronic whiners" for continuing to accuse him of spoiling the 2000 election for Gore.
"They should realize that the retrospect on Florida
concluded Gore won Florida,'' he told the Wisconsin State Journal.
It was stolen from the Democrats. And they should concentrate on the thieves and the blunderers in Florida, not on the Green Party.''
It's gotta be tough on Ralph, knowing his massive ego allowed
that murderer to steal the White House.
When he thinks about the damage Bush has done to the environment, he must get nearly suicidal.

I wonder how many of the 400 dead Americans would still be allowed
if Bush had allowed them to have Kevlar vests.
His unstoppable hardon for oil caused America to invade a country before we were able to protect our people.
Also, think how many soldiers would still have arms and legs if
the armored personnel carriers his Daddy builds
had more steel in the floor, making them less susceptable to land mines and rocket propelled grenades.
...but, I guess it's cheaper to let young men die.
We have nearly 400 dead (as of this writing) but Bush has his
oil and Poppy sold his APCs.
It's all about making a buck to these B.F.E.E. bastards.
Cronkite: media mergers threaten democracy
"I think it is absolutely essential in a democracy to have competition in the media,
a lot of competition, and we seem to be moving away from that," said Walter Cronkite.
"The way that works is to have multiple owners,
with the hope that the owners will have
different viewpoints, and with the hope that the debate will help to air all sides, or at least
most sides of the issues. But right now I think we're moving away from that approach."
Wally, I think we lost different viewpoints
years ago when every media outlet discovered
that there were hundreds of millions to be made by fabricating lies about Bill Clinton.
They also know if they print anything that doesn't fawn over Bush's "greatness,"
they will be swamped with freeper mail and organized efforts to hurt them,
so the lazy bastards take the easy way out and praise the illegal murderer..
If only the Democrats weren't such it's-not-polite-to-fight pussies.

But some fret that the Pentagon - growing desperate as the Turks, the Indians, the Pakistanis
and other allies refuse to send reinforcements - has been turning out new Iraqi police officers
and guards as swiftly and sloppily as Lucy and Ethel turned out chocolates on the assembly line.
The Washington Post reported that tens of
thousands of Iraqis were being shoved into action
"with little or no formal training in democratic standards and relevant job skills."
Many diplomats were shocked to read the
Times report that the back-channel attempt of Iraqis
to avert war, with Richard Perle as go-between, was blown off with the C.I.A. message,
"Tell them that we will see them in Baghdad."

Iraqi insurgency is waning, general says
"We think the insurgency is waning," said Brig. Gen. Mark P. Hertling, the assistant
division commander for support. "The ones who continue to fight are losing their support."
Hertling said the impression left by the
media in the minds of Americans is that the situation
is worsening or, at least, not improving in the city.
"The majority of our soldiers feel we are making
progress every day and we are beyond the hardest part," Hertling said."
If this is how the military is thinking, we have to get out of
Iraq not tomorrow, but today.

Subject: Issue 1147
I was hoping you'd corrected it, but issue
1147 doesn't seem to be available.
The link takes one to issue 1148. I missed 1147 last weekend - I know you don't read these so much,
but none of the contacts looked like the right one to get hold of. So here's hoping.
I just want to see the issue I missed.
Regina, I think others might also have this
problem, so I'm printing your letter.
If you find that a link is broken, it's possible I'm just one letter or number off.
Say you click on http://www.bartrcop.com/1147.htm
and you get Issue 1148, instead.
If that happens, just look at the very top of the page and in the address box where you see 1147,
just swipe over the 1147 and change it to 1148. That will almost always work.
For newbies, when you "mouse" over a link, the address appears in your lower left corner.
Sometimes, when I'm doing these links at 130 MPH, I'll accidentally
have "html" when I should have "htm."
I'm not trying to get you to do my work for me, but if it's a story you'd really like to read, it could be very close.
Also, if you see a link that says, http://www.buzzflash.com/lucithebat.htmTHE
dropping the THE with your blue swipe will probably bring it up.
Better yet, Googling the headline should also produce the right link.
Sometimes the link is from yesterday and it's just screwed,
but I wanted to remind people you're often just a character away from the right link.
John Kerry, trying to jump start his ailing campaign, has fired his campaign manager.
Kerry released a statement saying he made a change, and that Jim Jordan's job was being given
to veteran Democratic operative Mary Beth Cahill and that Jordan was being offered another position.
Kerry is third in most polls in Iowa, where
the nation's first presidential selection caucuses will be held,
and trails Dean by a double-digit margin in New Hampshire, a must-win state for both men.
Opinion: Kerry has been too silent
and too sheepish for too long.
He's the classic example of a fighter who's behind on points and must have a knockout to win.
I wish Kerry would earn the right to be edited out of this graphic.
Hey John, did you ever consider that Dean
is winning this race
because he's not afraid to attack the Illegal Fraud?

Subject: progress in Iraq is BS
I keep hearing the neocons talk about all
the progress being made in Iraq with the electricity
coming back on, schools being opened etc. But since none of these spinners went to Iraq before
the invasion they have no idea what things were in operation then.
What I see as most probable is that repairs
are being made to things we blew the shit out of
during the invasion. That is most certainly not progress. Progress will begin after return to the
pre-invasion status quo has been achieved. Like that's going to happen while the country is occupied.
Steve, most excellent point.
Bush bragging about all the progress there is just like his bragging about
how much the economy has improved over the last year or so.
Starting at zero, it's EASY to say much progress is being made.
People need to remember that in both Iraq and the economy, it was Bush that destroyed them,
but the headlines will continue to scream, "record gains," even tho we're still far below the Clinton years.

Sometimes to get a run across the plate, you have to bunt with a man on first. That means, give up one out
for the greater long-term goal of winning the game. In other words, Democrats have to get past their differences
from the primaries and get behind the guy who can get the run in from 2nd base with a single. I don't see any
power hitters on the Democratic side right now. We don't have Boog Powell, Frank and Brooks Robinson in
the lineup anymore. And no one is hitting the Republican sliders [ed. note: or screwballs] well. We just need to
play the game smarter. Rather than cast blame, it's time to grab a bat and try to get someone to 2nd base and
someone to single him home. I'll take that.

In No. 1196, you wrote:
"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."
Noam Chomsky is an internationally-renowned semanticist
and linguist, a
professor at MIT. He was born and grew up in Philadelphia, and some good
friends of mine attended public and Hebrew school with him. His father was
Superintendent of the Hebrew school system here.
Because of his understanding of semantics and linguistics, Professor Chomsky
began "connecting the dots" some years ago on the way the media and government
use language and propaganda to shape public opinion and policy in this country.
The result of these observations was perhaps his best-known work, "Manufacturing
Consent," which he co-authored with Edward Hermann, a professor at the University
of Pennsylvania Wharton School. Written in 1988, it is still in print, and is probably the
defining work on what your friend at MWO refers to as the "media whores" and their
support of the interests of the corporatists both in and out of government. Mark Crispin
Miller probably also owes a great deal to Chomsky's ground-laying work.
I had the honor to hear Professor Chomsky speak in Philadelphia some months
ago. During his speech, he observed that the 20th century had seen the rise of
three totalitarian systems: Communism, Fascism, and corporatism. He went on to
say that we've gotten rid of the first two, and we should be working on the
third. He doesn't use the term "B.F.E.E." but I'm sure he would understand it.
In most of the world, Professor Chomsky is revered as one of this country's
great intellects. In this country, he always draws large crowds to his speeches,
especially on campuses, but he is virtually blacked out of the news media.
You will never see him interviewed, not even on PBS' "Lehrer News Hour."
He has been totally marginalized and ignored because he speaks uncomfortable
truths that the government and the corporate elites don't want you to hear.
In other words, Bartcop with a doctorate, but without the Glock or the

Bush blocks money for U.S. soldiers jailed and tortured in Iraqi prisons
Since the B.F.E.E. now owns all Iraqi assets, that's money right out of their pockets
The Bush administration is seeking to block a group of American troops who were tortured in Iraqi prisons during the
Persian Gulf war in 1991 from collecting any of the hundreds of millions of dollars in frozen Iraqi assets they won last
summer in a federal court ruling against the government of Saddam Hussein.
In a court challenge that the administration
is winning so far but is not eager to publicize, administration lawyers
argued that Iraqi assets frozen in bank accounts in the United States are needed for Iraqi reconstruction and that the
judgment won by the 17 former American prisoners should be overturned.
"I've always tried to keep in the back of my mind
that we were never going to see any of the money," said Colonel Storr,
who was held by the Iraqis for 33 days - a period in which he says his captors beat him with clubs, broke his nose,
urinated on him and threatened to cut off his fingers if he did not disclose military secrets. "But it goes beyond frustration
when I see our government trying to pretend that this whole case never happened.".
Can you believe these B.F.E.E. bastards?
The reason we invaded Iraq is because they are rich with oil, but our POWS need to be screwed?
Has Bush ever passed up a chance to screw a veteran?
