In the days ahead, American politicians
and pundits will talk a lot about "leveling" with
the people by speaking the hard truth about Iraq,
meaning an admission that the war is
sure to rage for years and require an even heavier
sacrifice in money and blood.
But this "leveling" will be
just the latest spin. They won't tell you are these other hard
First, whatever lies ahead in the Iraq War,
the outcome is almost certain to be far worse
for Iraqis and Americans than it would have been
if the U.S.-led invasion had never happened.
Despite the uplifting political rhetoric about
democracy and peace, the smart money is on a
staggering death toll and a grisly civil war...
The second hard truth is that the American
people have only two choices on what to do next:
they can continue
to send their young soldiers into the Iraqi death trap for
at least the next
several years and hope for the best, or they can build a
movement for impeaching
George W. Bush and other administration officials
- and then
try to make the best of a bad situation in Iraq.

Bush ratings unchanged by rehash speech
Just one week ago, Bush's job approval
stood at 44%÷but it has now slipped to 43%,
despite a speech intended to build support for
his bloody quagmire. A new survey shows
no "bump," with approval of his job
performance at 45% in the final day of polling.
Where voters live has some impact on their
perceptions. Bush's rating remains strong in the
South, where 51% of the uneducated racists approve
of his bloody war and genocide in Iraq.
In Oklahoma, Bush's war support is 57 percent.
The stupider the state, the higher Bush's support is.

Army promotes Torturers
The Pentagon has promoted or nominated
for promotion two senior Army officers who
oversaw interrogations during the height of the
Abu Ghraib prisoner-abuse scandal.
The Army promoted Walter Wodjakowski to
head Fort Benning, Ga. It has also nominated
Marc Warren, the top military lawyer in Baghdad
at the time, to be a brigadier, general.
A third officer, Barbara Fast took command
earlier this year of Fort Huachuca, Ariz.
An independent inquiry led by a James R.
Schlesinger faulted all three officers for their actions
in Iraq, but a subsequent review by the Army's
inspector general exonerated all of them.
You see how Bush works?
He says, "We don't allow torture because
it's against the law," and then he winks.
Those who read the winks get promoted, even tho they were guilty of the
Subject: War of the Worlds
I enjoyed your review of War of the Worlds. I

When I saw it I kept thinking during all

"This is what it felt like to be in Baghdad during the

There is something chilling about overwhelming,
implacable, pitiless technology.

I sit hear steaming at the tributes to this lady.
Oh sure, she could've been worse - they say she even saved the day
a few times by
being the "normal" conservative, but I heard a story about her that just
pisses me off.
The bimbo on CNN says when O'Conner graduated law school, she
was third in her class,
but when she tried to get a job as a lawyer, potential employers turned
down again and again
"because she was a woman."
She eventually had to settle for a job as a law clerk, and then
she clawed her way up the ladder
until Reagan's people picked her to be their token woman (sexism insurance)
on the court.
Once she got in a position to make big changes, she did what Clarence "Slappy" Thomas
and said, "Screw those behind me" and
voted with the "Men only" party more often than not.
What causes people to vote against themselves and their kind?
O'Conner, a victim of neanderthal, pregnant-in-the-kitchen GOP
thinking, chose to keep
the chains and shackles on women and minorities half the time, just like
Once Slappy made it into whitey's BIG house, he decided that Affirmative
Action was no
longer needed, even tho he benefitted from it. You'd
think, that after being the victim of anti-female,
caveman bias, O'Conner might've taken steps to educate her fellow monkeys.
And who among us will for get Election Day 2000, O'Conner was
at some snippy, DC cocktail party,
and when she heard that Gore carried Florida, she blurted out, "Oh
"Oh, no!?" that democracy
"Oh, no!?" that the voters were a
better judge of character than she was?
"Oh, no!?" that America would go
the way the majority wanted?
Sandy soon found herself in a position to "fix" the voter error

Is Bush "fixing" the number of U.S. military death count by redefining "death"?
The following article suggests, "DoD lists currently being very
quietly circulated indicate
almost 9,000 [U.S. military] dead"; this far exceeds the "official" death
count of 1,831.
How can this be? It's largely because "U.S. Military Personnel who died
hospitals or en route to German hospitals have not previously been counted."
In other words, it deoends on the meaning of the word, "dead."

Turkmenistan to Pakistan and India.
Afghan interim ruler (CIA Spook and BFEE

that Bush was deliberately holding up the UN resolutions
on Darfur because he was
having an ego war with the UN and the ICC.

The insurgency, which could not have succeded
cooperation of the BFEE ally SH and the calculated

simply a manufactured

Holmes never allowed to be alone
slept in weeks?
Since Katie Holmes hooked up with Tom Cruise
and the Scientologists, she's not allowed
to be alone - ever. When Holmes accompanied Cruise
to a recent taping of "The View,"
eyebrows were raised when she wasn't allowed to
go to the bathroom alone.
At one point, Cruise asked where the bathroom
was and "took Katie with him into the
men's room," an insider says. Later, when Holmes
needed to go, "three Scientologists
followed her in."
A rep for "The View" said, "We don't follow
guests to the bathroom."
Some were also concerned because Holmes "looks
like she hasn't slept in weeks."
They say it's from Page Six, I didn't see it, myself.
