War's Two Constants
by Robert Parry on consortiumnews.com
The Bush administration’s handling of the
Iraq War has had two constants – deception and wishful thinking
– a dangerous mix of falsehoods used to justify the conflict and
unrealistic expectations about success.
This pairing has brought the United States one
of the most unnecessary military disasters in its history.
Yet the Bush administration is sticking with the same tactics, more
deceptions and more wishful thinking
– from claims that the Iraq War has reduced terror threats worldwide
to optimistic talk about upcoming
But a difference between now and earlier in the
war is that the spin is growing more obvious as Americans catch on
to the tricks that have led to the deaths of more than 1,850 U.S. soldiers
and tens of thousands of Iraqis.
Bush's black-and-white analysis sets up a framework
that offers little choice but to battle to the death in
an apocalyptic war between good “democrats” and evil “terrorists.”
If Bush’s analysis is correct, American
troops will be fighting and dying in Iraq and around the Islamic world

Army Sgt 1st Class and Green Beret, Brett Walden.
I would appreciate links
to the better associations of soldiers' families against the war.
Army Spc. First Class Brett E. Walden, 40, died in Rubiah, Iraq, on
Aug. 5, according to the Department of Defense.
Walden and another solider, Sgt. 1st Class Robert V. Derenda, 42, of
Ledbetter, Ky., died while on a convoy mission
after a fuel truck collided with their armored Humvee.
Walden is survived by this wife, Autumn, and
their 12-year-old daughter, Alexandria.
The couple had been married 15 years and purchased a Dover Township
farm last month.
Walden was a decorated soldier who won numerous honors, including the
Combat Infantry Badge,
the Expert Infantry Badge, the Bronze Star, the Army Commendation Medal
and the Army Achievement Medal.
Walden will be buried at Arlington National
Cemetery with military honors.

Prices Set Another Record
President Oil Puppet is doing his job
Retail gas prices hit another record high over the past three weeks,
proving that oil company greed in insatiable,
according to a nationwide survey released Sunday.The average price for
all three grades rose nearly 20 cents to $2.53.
"I'm feeling it," said driver Adolfo
Fernandez, a Los Angeles resident who was filling his BMW Sunday with
premium unleaded at a cost of $2.97 per gallon. "I feel sorry for
the people who really feel it and can't afford it."
Gas prices will stay high
until people start complaining about it.
Then the oilers will get pressure from Bush - but they're not getting
is oil so expensive?
Simple analysis of the cost of oil:
Cost under Clinton: $20/barrel (gas $1.00/gal)
Cost of "war fear": $10/barrel
Cost of extra Oil Co. profits: $10/barrel
Notice that this adds up to $40/barrel (gasoline
cost of ~$1.45/gal)
The rest comes from the dollar's unprecedented decline against other
standard currencies, which has been 40%. That raises the expected
price of oil to $67/barrel and the expected cost of gas to $2.40/gal.
Now, some say we can't attribute this to Bush.
OK, that's true.
We can only attribute 58% of the cost of gasoline and 70% of the cost
of oil directly to his actions.

no favorite of the GOP
Pirro's gaffe-marred announcement and her emphasis
on liberal social positions
has led to new unrest in some quarters of the state GOP, party insiders
"A lot of people were unhappy with her boatload of mistakes, and
they're starting to take
another look at Ed Cox," who hopes to challenge Pirro in the primary
to run against Hillary.
Long also said he was struck by Pirro's "awesome
mistake" of saying she was "blue" on social issues
like abortion and stem-cell research, "killing any opportunity
of reaching the strong conservative base."
Damn, I hope she doesn't quit right away.
I'm looking forward to beating her up for the next 15 months.

Republican senate hopeful Jeanine Pirro said yesterday she would decide
"case by case"
whether to return several campaign donations linked to the mob.
Pirro, the Westchester District Attorney, was responding to a Daily
News story revealing
that six donors with ties to organized crime gave her campaign $12,000
"We will take a look at the facts and make
the appropriate decisions on a case-by-case basis,"
said Pirro spokesman Mike McKeon.
He declined to elaborate, but he said he believed
the mob information was"leaked" by Hillary's people.

Cindy Sheehan and her ever-growing
band of supporters intend to stay in those ditches outside
Bush's "ranch" until he comes out to talk or until August
31st, whichever comes first. If he does not
come out by the end of the month, she intends to follow him to Washington
and camp out in front of
the White House. She and the others have been there for more than
a week now, garnering more and
more attention from the national and international press. Yes, they
are tired. Yes, they are uncomfortable.
Yes, they have already won.
The nearly 2,000 crosses, crescents and Stars
of David that make up the Arlington West cemetery,
erected by the demonstrators a few days ago to represent all the fallen
American soldiers in Iraq,
stretch almost a mile down the country road. Bush had to drive past
that on Friday when he went to
his fundraising shindig at the Broken Spoke Ranch. 54 crosses have
been added to the cemetery
since he first showed up for his vacation at the beginning of August.
It takes a while to drive past
them all. This man, who cannot abide hearing or seeing anything in
the way of dissent or disagreement,
saw those crosses whistle past his window. That is a victory.

Crowe to spend $15 million for scratch
Russell Crowe is reportedly planning to cough up more than $15 million
to a hotel porter
he allegedly hit when he threw the telephone in a fit of rage.
Crowe, 41, was arrested and charged on June 6
with second-degree assault after throwing
a telephone at Nestor Estrada and hitting him in the face, police said
at the time.
Now he is expected to pay £6 million ($15.61
million) to Mr Estrada in a deal to stop the
case going to court next month, British newspaper The Daily Mail reported
Mr Estrada, 28, suffered a cut cheek after Crowe
threw the telephone, frustrated at not
being able to get an outside line to call his wife.
