'War without the UN is unthinkable," huffed The Guardian's Polly Toynbee a year ago, just before it happened. For a certain type of person, any action on the international scene without the UN is unthinkable. And, conversely, anything that happens under the UN imprimatur is mostly for the unthinking. No matter how corrupt and depraved it is in practice, the organisation's sunny utopian image endures. Say the initials "UN" to your average member of Ms Toynbee's legions of the unthinking and they conjure up not UN participation in the sex-slave trade in Bosnia, nor the UN refugee extortion racket in Kenya, nor the UN cover-up of the sex-for-food scandal in West Africa, nor UN complicity in massacres, but some misty Unesco cultural event compered by the late Sir Peter Ustinov featuring photogenic children. So the question now is whether the UN Oil-for-Food programme is just another of those things that slip down the memory hole, and we all go back to parroting the lullaby that "only the UN can bring legitimacy to Iraq/Afghanistan/Your Basket Case Here". Legitimacy seems to be the one thing the UN doesn't bring, and I'm not just talking about the love-children of UN-enriched Balkan hookers in Kosovo. The scale of the UN Oil-for-Fraud programme is way beyond any of the corporate scandals that so excite the progressive mind. Oil-for-Food was designed to let the Iraqi government sell a limited amount of oil in return for food and other necessities for its people. Between 1996 and 2003, Saddam did more than $100 billion of business, all of it approved by Kofi Annan's Secretariat.

The reality is that indeed John Kerry has been involved in congressional decision making as a long time Senator in Washington more familiar with the Washington corridors than a Texas corporate bought republican who all he could do was use the american military in Iraq to satisfy his political ambitions here at homebecause this is all Iraq has been, bush's political platformand then we have all those american coffins flying back so lets get one thing straight right wingersgeorge walker bush will never have, the Washington experience the experienced Senator from Massachussetts has and has been part of the apartus that makes the country run in Washingtonand that the republicans in the majority in Congress were unwilling to reach common sense and middle ground with the democratic struggle to address critical social issues as poverty and miminum wages human health and fighting the aids virus and controling the spread of assault weapons to civiliansbecause if today in Iraq the american coalition pleads with Iraq to turn over their AK-47's, and weapons of mass destruction, then why is the republican party of george bush having a problem understanding the opposition to the spread of Ak-47's to shoot deer in the United States for sport?I mean if the problems created by terrorism include the reality that high assault weapons are in the hands of civilians in IRAQ and which is undemocratic, then why are republicans here in the United States trying to wipe out the assault weapons ban because the NRA and gun manufacturers would rather press assault weapons on the civil way of life in the United States I mean if its a crime in Iraq to have an Ak -47 like most Iraqis carry in bush's oil war for american blood in Iraq, then why are this republicans encouraging the sale of assault weapons through Texas pawn shops and every hole this republicans have made possible?If the civilians in America are free under our democracy to purchase assault weapons with bullets able to cause massive destruction, then why is this democracy not good enough in IRaq that after all they dont have to purchase the weapons since they already have them, WHY IS IT A CRIME IN IRAQ TO CARRY AN ASSAULT WEAPON AND REPUBLICANS HERE ENCOURAGE THE USE OF ASSAULT WEAPONS WHEN THEY SPIT ON THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BILL?SURELY SOMETHING IS WRONG IN A COUNTRY WHERE we are faced with the appointed presidency of a ball park manager who spat and shined his boots instead of fighting in the jungles of Vietnam as President John kerry did because I believe that if this country has any intelligence left, John Kerry will be President because this is the only choice Americans havebecause all bush has given this country is the biggest reasons to remove him from office while his republican twin brother in the State of Texas Rick Perry attempts to destroy and dismantle the Texas Public School System by again allowing the fewer rich to exploit the massive poor on the backs of the children of this country who will be left out of the halls of public education if this republican corrupt thugs have their way in TexasSomehow george walker bush was able to avoid and evade debates during his governorship of Texas and as we all know, george bush was a big contributor to ENRON ripping off all those Texas investors as well as the Texas Teachers Retirementheeee heeeeee heeeeeee, maybe Rick Perry thinks that if he wipes out public education he can erase the fact Texas Teachers lost their retirements to ENRON who escaped paying Taxes while george bush was "governor of Texas"so its a sleazy lot these republican jand only by removing republicans from office can a John Kerry Presidential Administration do our country aj favor after all the harm bush has caused it because when a republican takes a political contribution from a corporation who then runs the country tjhrough its Washington lobbyist, no longer is this democracy and george bush and cheney are the biggest threats to democracy.

Hey Craig, Yeah we're changing servers so things may go up or down for a little bit but will all settle down soon. Theoretically you shouldn't have noticed. So much for theory. Can't explain why posts would not format correctly, however...

Guys, don't know what's up, but I've been having problems accessing the site off and on for a few days. Also, the posts aren't formatting correctly, so they're difficult to read.OK, on to substance. I don't disagree with much of what the Colonel said, but would make a few points:"Revolutionary" Islamic violence is not necessarily medieval; you can find some elaboration for it in the writings of Fanon on the liberation of Algeria. While not explicitly stated, and not Islamic, you can find the same issues in "Biko," the film about the murder of the anti-apartheid leader, in the discussion of differences between the ANC and other anti-apartheid forces over strategy.Nor is the extreme brutality that you decry solely the turf of Moslems, or Arabs, or the Middle East, nor is it medieval in a historical sense. Within the last 70 years we've had the rape of Nanking, the Holocaust, the Cambodian genocide, the Rwandan genocide, and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, Serbia, and Croatia. And the last was not just involving Moslems, who were more the victims than the perpertrators. Check out what the Catholic Croats and the Orthodox Serbs were doing to each other. I would also recommend "The Rape of Nanjing" by (I think) Irene Chang, which was very well-received. It documents atrocities so extreme that even the Nazi ambassador to China was appalled.Former Democrat posted the report from a Palestinian Berkeley professor for reaction. Sorry that the band hasn't commented. First of all, the guy is a hypocrite, taking tax money from the very government that he wants overthrow. I'm not sure he's done anything illegal; if he has, it's rarely prosecuted. But I'd think it's more likely that he's violated his visa, and if that can be shown, I'd boot his ass out of the country.

Very very interesting posting, Col. Angus.There is much food for thought in your posting. I don't necessarily agree with your conclusion (i.e. that the US should be in there "cleaning shop") but appreciate your posting very much. Very thought provoking. Thank you.

The Mirror of Fallujah; No more passes and excuses for the Middle EastWhat are we to make of scenes from the eighth-century in Fallujah? Random murder, mutilation of the dead, dismemberment, televised gore, and pride in stringing up the charred corpses of those who sought to bring food to the hungry? Perhaps we can shrug and say all this is the wage of Saddam Hussein and the thirty years of brutality of his Baathists that institutionalized such barbarity? Or was the carnage the dying scream of Baathist hold-outs intent on shocking the Western world at home watching it live? We could speculate for hours. Yet I fear that we have not seen anything new. Flip through the newspaper and the stories are as depressing as they are monotonous: bombs in Spain; fiery clerics promising death in England, even as explosive devices are uncovered in France. In-between accounts of bombings in Iraq, we get the normal murdering in Israel, and daily assassination in Pakistan, Turkey, Morocco, and Chechnya. Murder, dismemberment, torture—these all seem to be the acceptable tools of Islamic fundamentalism and condoned as part of justifiable Middle East rage. Sheik Yassin is called a poor crippled “holy man” who ordered the deaths of hundreds, as revered in the Arab World for his mass murder as Jerry Falwell is condemned in the West for his occasional slipshod slur about Muslims. Yet the hourly killing is perhaps not merely the wages of autocracy, but part of a larger grotesquery of Islamic fundamentalism on display. The Taliban strung up infidels from construction cranes and watched, like Romans of old, gory stoning and decapitations in soccer stadiums built with UN largess. In the last two years, Palestinian mobs have torn apart Israeli soldiers, lynched their own, wired children with suicide bombing vests, and machine-gunned down women and children—between sickening scenes of smearing themselves with the blood of “martyrs.” Very few Arab intellectuals or holy men have condemned such viciousness.Daniel Pearl had his head cut off on tape; an American diplomat was riddled with bullets in Jordan. Or should we turn to Lebanon and gaze at the work of Hezbollah—its posters of decapitated Israeli soldiers proudly on display? Some will interject that the Saudis are not to be forgotten—whose religious police recently allowed trapped school girls to be incinerated rather than have them leave the flaming building unescorted, engage in public amputations, and behead adulteresses. But Mr. Assad erased from memory the entire town of Hama. And why pick on Saddam Hussein, when earlier Mr. Nasser, heartthrob to the Arab masses, gassed Yemenis? The Middle-East coffee houses cry about the creation of Israel and the refugees on the West Bank only to snicker that almost 1,000,000 Jews were ethnically cleansed from the Arab world.And then there is the rhetoric. Where else in the world do mainstream newspapers talk of Jews as the children of s and apes? And how many wacky Christian or Hindu fundamentalists advocate about the mass murder of Jews or promise death to the infidel? Does a Western leader begin his peroration with “O evil infidel” or does Mr. Sharon talk of “virgins” and “blood-stained martyrs?” Conspiracy theory in the West is the domain of Montana survivalists and Chomsky-like wackos; in the Arab world it is the staple of the state-run media. This tired strophe and antistrophe of threats and retractions, and braggadocio and obsequiousness grates on the world at large. So Hamas threatens to bring the war to the United States, and then back peddles and says not really. So the Palestinians warn American diplomats that they are not welcome on the soil of the West Bank—as if any wish to return when last there they were murdered trying to extend scholarships to Palestinian students.I am sorry, but these toxic fumes of the Dark-Ages permeate everywhere. It won’t do any more simply to repeat quite logical exegeses. Without consensual government, the poor Arab Middle East is caught in the throes of rampant unemployment, illiteracy, statism, and corruption. Thus in frustration it vents through its state-run media invective against Jews and Americans to assuage the shame and pain. Whatever.But at some point the world is asking: “Is Mr. Assad or Hussein, the Saudi Royal Family, or a Khadafy really an aberration—all rogues who hijacked Arab countries—or are they the logical expression of a tribal patriarchal society whose frequent tolerance of barbarism is in fact reflected in its leadership? Are the citizens of Fallujah the victims of Saddam, or did folk like this find their natural identity expressed in Saddam? Postcolonial theory and victimology argue that European colonialism, Zionism, and petrodollars wrecked the Middle East. But to believe that one must see India in shambles, Latin America under blanket autocracy, and an array of suicide bombers pouring out of Mexico or Nigeria. South Korea was a moonscape of war when oil began gushing out of Iraq and Saudi Arabia; why is it now exporting cars while the latter are exporting death? Apartheid was far worse than the Shah’s modernization program; yet why did South Africa renounce nuclear weapons while the Mullahs cheated on every UN protocol they could?No, there is something peculiar to the Middle East that worries the world. The Arab world for years has promulgated a quite successful media image as perennial victims—proud folks, suffering under a series of foreign burdens, while nobly maintaining their grace and hospitality. Middle-Eastern Studies programs in the United States and Europe published an array of mostly dishonest accounts of Western culpability, sometimes , sometimes anti-Semitic that were found to be useful intellectual architecture for the edifice of panArabism, as if Palestinians or Iraqis shared the same oppressions, the same hopes, and the same ideals as downtrodden American people of color—part of a universal “other” deserving victim status and its attendant blanket moral exculpation. But the curtain has been lifted since 9-11 and the picture we see hourly now is not pretty.Imagine an Olympics in Cairo? Or an international beauty pageant in Riyadh? Perhaps an interfaith world religious congress would like to meet in Teheran? Surely we could have the World Cup in Beirut? Is there a chance to have a World Bank conference in Ramallah or Tripoli? Maybe Damascus could host a conference of the world’s neurosurgeons?And then there is the asymmetry of it all. Walk in hushed tones by a mosque in Iraq, yet storm and desecrate the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank with impunity. Blow up and assassinate Westerners with unconcern; yet scream that Muslims are being questioned about immigration status in New York. Damn the West as you try to immigrate there; try to give the Middle East a fair shake while you prefer never to visit such a place. Threaten with death and fatwa any speaker or writer who “impugns” Islam, demand from Western intellectuals condemnation of any Christians who speak blasphemously of the Koran.I have purchased Israeli agricultural implements, computer parts, and read books translated from the Hebrew; so far, nothing in the contemporary Arab world has been of much value in offering help to the people of the world in science, agriculture, or medicine. When there is news of 200 murdered in Madrid or Islamic mass-murdering of Christians in the Sudan, or suicide bombing in Israel, we no longer look for moderate mullahs and clerics to come forward in London or New York to condemn it. They rarely do. And if we might hear a word of reproof, it is always qualified by the ubiquitous “but”—followed by a litany of qualifiers about Western colonialism, Zionism, racism, and hegemony that have the effects of making the condemnation either meaningless or in fact a sort of approval.Yet it is not just the violence, the boring threats, the constant televised hatred, the temper-tantrums of fake intellectuals on televisions, the hypocrisy of anti-Western Arabs haranguing America and Europe from London or Boston, or even the pathetic shouting and fist-shaking of the ubiquitous Arab street. Rather the global village is beginning to see that the violence of the Middle East is not aberrant, but logical. Its misery is not a result of exploitation or colonialism, but self-induced. Its fundamentalism is not akin to that of reactionary Hinduism, Buddhism, or Christianity, but of an altogether different and much fouler brand.The enemy of the Middle East is not the West so much as modernism itself and the humiliation that accrues when millions themselves are nursed by fantasies, hypocrisies, and conspiracies to explain their own failures. Quite simply, any society in which citizens owe their allegiance to the tribe rather than the nation, do not believe in democracy enough to institute it, shun female intellectual contributions, allow polygamy, insist on patriarchy, institutionalize religious persecution, ignore family planning, expect endemic corruption, tolerate honor killings, see no need to vote, and define knowledge as mastery of the Koran is deeply pathological.When one adds to this depressing calculus that for all the protestations of Arab nationalism, Islamic purity and superiority, and whining about a decadent West, the entire region is infected with a burning desire for things Western—from cell phones and computers to videos and dialysis, you have all the ingredients for utter disaster and chaos. How after all in polite conversation can you explain to an Arab intellectual that the GDP of Jordan or Morocco has something to do with an array of men in the early afternoon stuffed into coffee shops spinning conspiracy tales, drinking coffee, and playing board games while Japanese, Germans, Chinese, and American women and men are into their sixth hour on the job? Or how do you explain that while Taiwanese are studying logarithms, Pakistanis are chanting from the Koran in Dark-Age madrassas? And how do you politely point out that while the New York Times and Guardian chastise their own elected officials, the Arab news in Damascus or Cairo is free only to do the same to us?I support the bold efforts of the United States to make a start in cleaning up this mess, in hopes that a Fallujah might one day exorcize its demons. But in the meantime, we should have no illusions about the enormity of our task, where every positive effort will be met with violence, fury, hypocrisy, and ingratitude.If we are to try to bring some good to the Middle East, then we must first have the intellectual courage to confess that for the most part the pathologies embedded there are not merely the work of corrupt leaders but often the very people who put them in place and allowed them to continue their ruin.So the question remains did Saddam create Fallujah or Fallujah Saddam?

you know the more I listen to that traitor in the Whitehouse the more I am convinced it is time for a change in Washington not just because there has enough troop bloodshed in Iraq, but because somewhere at some time,this country is going to have to face the reality of the disaster george bush has been for this country and how the time has come to remove the republican failed policies from office because sure enough, all bush did, was destroy the economy and cause massive unemployment and many IRAQ COFFINS OF AMERICAN SOLDIERSbut mr.bush seemed to in his conference of April 13, 2004, be very confident mothers and fathers dont mind handing over to the killing fields in iraq their young soldiers and instead of hoping to an end of so much bloodshed, mr.bush promised more bloodshed of american troops so how can we stop this gone mad appointed thug in the whitehouse who is trying to tell us that in the name of "freedom" he has ransacked the country of iraq yet when it comes to defending the rights of the free people of palestinemr.bush has totally turned his back on that part of the middle east, but insisted during his news conference that all the bloodshed in Iraq is for the sake of "freedom in Iraq" and when it comes to the freedom of Palestine, it is nowhere to be found on bush's agenda, and when it does get some attention, Israel constantly pretends to with one hand extend to peace but behind the other hand lies the hatchet of betrayal by Ariel Sharon otherwise why not give GAZA AND THE WEST BANK BACK TO THE PALESTINIAN FREE PEOPLE NOW SLAVES OF ARIEL SHARON something is not right when we have news conferences being held by wimps who think they are "presidents" when they were not even elected to office and something is dreadfully wrong when it is this sort of appointed "president" who in light of being faced with the written threat, instead refuses to warn the country and assisted Osama bin laden with the twin tower terror because lets face it in 2001 the bush administration knew very well through its state department how many hijackers were training in the state of florida knew also the bush administration through the august 6, 2001 memo, that "hijackings' were threatening to take place with "aircraft" and my question to the bush doormats is HOW MUCH MORE SPECIFIC COULD THE MEMO GET IF IT WAS TELLING YOU THAT "HIJACKINGS" AND AIRCRAFT" WOULD BE USED?I continue to be in shock watching how mr. bush continues to attempt to pull the wool over our eyes while he hides in sheeps clothing knowing full well that the evidence bush failed to warn the people has been seen by the whole countrymaybe mr. bush thinks its alright to try to place all the "responsiblity on osama bin laden" but when chickens come home to roost mr.bush, it was yourrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr responsiblityyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyas commander in chiefffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffto have warnedddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddthe american people,,,,,,,,,,but this traitor refused and failed to warn the voters and taxpayers he now wants the vote from so hey bush,,,,,,,,,why should we vote for you,when you culd not even warn us of 9-11 after recieving the threat info? what more specific if bush had it in writing in front of his sorry face? what more specific than the identification of the terror cell? bush knew the bin laden terror cell presented danger and failed to warn americans so he cannot have our vote no mr bush,,,,,,,,you aregoing out of office very soon for being the traitor you have been to the people and exploiting the abuse of power to use the military for the malicious end of mr.bush's political agenda because its like mr. bush plaintly said during his news conference when referring to the massacres in Iraq tonight of many american troops since good friday."the american people will say who is better at the terror war? but I thought this was not a political war mr.bush? george bush is the worst that can happen to any country and it is imminently dangerous to allow this sort of corrupt republican to remain in office for the sake of human life, remove the bush from office before its too late and everybody loses everything under these corrupt republican administrations

Do you boys see anything disturbing with this story:Berkeley lecturer urges 'uprising' against U.S.Muslim scholar declares at rally 'you haven't seen radicalism yet!' http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/p...RTICLE_ID=38001 A University of California at Berkeley lecturer speaking at an anti-war rally Saturday called for a Palestinian-style intifada, or uprising, against the United States in response to American actions in the Middle East. Hatem Bazian, a native Palestinian with a Ph.D. in Islamic studies, stirred up the San Francisco crowd, asking three times, to resounding affirmations, "Are you angry?" The comments at the outdoor rally held at United Nation's Plaza were caught on a digital camera's movie format by a reader of the popular weblog Little Green Footballs. An estimated 2,000 to 3,000 people attended the "emergency" action organized by the radical anti-war group International A.N.S.W.E.R. in response to the increased fighting in the Iraqi city of Fallujah. The International A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition is an umbrella group tied to the World Workers Party, a M.a.r.x.i.s.t organization that supports authoritarian regimes and communist dictatorships. The lecturer in Berkeley's Near Eastern Studies and Ethnic Studies Departments continued: "Well, we've been watching intifada in Palestine, we've been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don't have an intifada in this country? Because it seem[s] to me, that we are comfortable in where we are, watching CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, and all these mainstream ... giving us a window to the world while the world is being managed from Washington, from New York, from every other place in here in San Francisco: Chevron, Bechtel, [Carlyle?] Group, Halliburton; every one of those lying, cheating, stealing, deceiving individuals are in our country and we're sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it's about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every – They're gonna say some Palestinian being too radical – well, you haven't seen radicalism yet!" On his website, Bazian says he teaches courses on Islam, Islamic law, Sufisim, Arabic, and politics of the Middle East at U.C. Berkeley as well as at San Francisco State University, Berkeley Graduate Theological Union and Diablo Valley College. He also provides "guidance to the community on issues pertaining to Islam and Muslims in the Bay Area." Bazim, his website says, was chairman of the U.C. Berkeley Graduate Assembly and from 1995-1999 was coordinator of the Graduate Minority Students Project of the Graduate Assembly, "through which he spearheaded statewide efforts to defeat proposition 209," which sought to eliminate affirmative action programs in California. He is co-host and assistant producer of the radio program "Islam Today" in the Bay Area and was a translation consultant for the San Francisco Chronicle on stories relating to Islam, Muslims and world politics. Vietnam will be 'child's play' At the rally Saturday, Bazian said the Vietnam War will be regarded as "child's play" compared to the U.S. experience in Iraq: "And the people in Iraq understand who's the foreigner in the country. It's not the Arabs who are coming to help. Even if more Arabs who come to help, they understand who's helping and who's opposing them. The – it took the British three years to unite the Iraqis against them. And it took less than a year for the – for the Bush administration to unite all the Iraqis. And they need to understand: what took place in Vietnam will be child's play to what will take place in Iraq ... ." A Berkeley student at the rally expressed support for Iraqi attacks on U.S. troops, charging "the occupation is a source of tremendous violence against Iraqis." "In light of that, you know, I think we've got to support the resistance; we've got to say that we support attacks against the occupying forces," he said. 'So I mean – and you can imagine what kind of an inspiring thing that is for people in Palestine, for people in Bolivia, for people in Argentina, Colombia, all over the world, facing down the barrel of a US-supplied gun. Seeing the people of Iraq fight back, that's what we need." An unidentified speaker encouraged attacks on U.S. troops worldwide: "We stand here – we stand here recognizing that the war on Iraq is illegal, that the war on Iraq is illegal, and that resistance, that resistance against this war is protected by international law. It is legitimate, and that we – and we in this movement support the resistance against American imperialism by any means necessary."

BIII, there were several articles in the Washington Post and the NY Times, among others, concerning the anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. I don't know how you could have missed them. Check out all the reports at: http://story.news.yahoo.com/fc?cid=34&tmpl=fc&in=World&cat=RwandaAs for "For Whom the Bell Tolls," I read the book. It's also a very good movie -- Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman.

Franklin, thanks for the grammar lesson. Now quit wasting your time on this message site and write some new lyrics.Also, last week was the tenth anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. If you didn't know don't worry nobody paid attention to that either (except Frontline).The tragedy inspired the lyrics for our song "For Whom the Bells Toll".

In the court of public opinion it has become apparent and evident that the bush/cheney/rumsfeld/rice republican administration failed the country Congress and the american people by refusing to warn the country after the bush/cheney administration recieved the "august 5, 2001 memorandum" from the american CIA/FBI who was apparently doing a good job ofINFORMING THE BUSH APPOINTED WHITEHOUSEand now we have mr.bush using his photo opportunity next to egyptian president Hosni Mubarack trying to tell our country that the "fbi was conducting investigations"WHEN IN A DAILY BREIFING TO THE U.S. "president" it was told by the american intelligence that a threat was upon our country by the Bin Laden terror cell?I feel as an american citizen that when the bush/cheney administration had an opportunity to stop the twin tower terrorthe bush/cheney administration instead allowed the terror to happen otherwise what was wrong with warning America the minuto! the american government received the "august 6, 2001 memo from the american intelligence? but bush thought he would do New York the favor after! THE FBI/CIA MEMO TO THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION IMPLIED TO THE WHOLE COUNTRY A DANGER WAS UPON OUR COUNTRY AND WAS MADE AVAILABLE TO THE BUSH ADMINISTRATIONI have trouble understanding what more threat mr.bush needed to hear when it was evident that the threat had already been made and anybody trying to tell this country that because the "threat was not specific" at what time in history has any country been advised by a potential terror act of where it would take place? and just what kind of fools does mr.bush take this country for?For your information mr. appointed "president" whom the popular vote did not elect, the information on the "august 6, 2001 memo from the CIA/FBI" should have sufficed any intelligent adminstration to have known that above all idiot things of the world the responsibility to not keep americans in the dark laid on the shoulders of the bush/whitehouse but again like in Iraqbush failed the american people and as a result today many needless military deaths have added tothe already Iraqi coffins bush has caused in Iraq all in the name and fight for oil and for Halliburton to dig its fangs in the billions from our taxpayers taken to Iraq by this corrupt and inept bush/cheney administrationOH YEAH BUSH NOW WANTS TO TRY TO TELL US THAT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO PREVENT FUTURE terrorismthan to get to the bottom of 9-11?mr. bush, many american taxpayers from the state of New York would have appreciated having their loved ones lost in the twin tower terror home this easter and day of holy resurrection, but as usual the devil came in disguise and fornicated america with Iraq and with the american billions taken to Iraq so that Halliburton and other bush connected oil corporations could benefit with the destruction of the infrastructure in IraqOR WHY ELSE WAS IT SO IMPORTANT TO DESTROY IRAQ?BECAUSE IN ORDER FOR HALLIBURTON AND OTHER BUSH CONNECTED OIL COMPANIES TO BENEFIT FROM THE MILITARY SLAUGHTER IN IRAQ, it was necessary to slaughter civility in Iraq and so there s you have he rest of this horrid story where on "august 6, 2001" APPOINTED 'president' BUSH, FAILED TO WARN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OF IMEPNDING DANGER AND IMMINENT THREAT! HERE WAS THE REAL IMMINENT THREAT MR. BUSH, WHERE YOU FAILED TO WARN AMERICANS IN EVERY STATE OF THIS COUNTRY TO HAVE PREVENTED! 9-11BUT THEN IT WAS MORE CONVENIENT TO LET THE DISASTER HAPPEN WASN'T IT BUSH? after all by then the bush/cheney polls were on the ground due to the conditions of the country bush had brought about with his senseless tax breaks to the rich and like this not only would bush and cheney bleed the terror of 9-11 yanking society from its feet and shoving all of us into a corner of fear but rudy guliani, would also resurrect from the dead after being the most corrupt mayor in office while all the New York police brutality took place you remember s, when that cop shoved that plunger up that poor man's body?and "in the name of gulianni" the cop did this terrible things to a colored man and this was not the only police brutality in New York under the guliani regime no, but then through 9-11 and the bleeding of the terror, rudy guliani resurrects from the dead and rises to the level of having that english tick, queen elizabeth name him a a "knight" a night of terror maybe while under his watch the twin towers burned and a night of terror in the bush whitehouse for allowing 9-11 to take placeOH NOW ms. rice wants to confuse us by trying to makeit seem that there was some "sturctural problema" with the title of THE AUGUST 6, 2001 MEMO vut in reality the only structural problem is the fact that the terror news did not get filtered down to the people so that at least! the country would have been warned but bush liked surpises and apparently has enjoyed bathing in the blood of 9-11 and now Iraq where we know that in reality, the american government has killed many civilian Iraqi's to carry out their demonic occupation aint that the truth corrupt bush administration that you are all trying to wash your bloody hands like pontious pilate by pointing the finger the other way?Americans will not be fooled by the bush administration who has already failed americans by refusing to warn us prior to 9-11 and Americans should be watchful of a most corrupt administration who could contaminate Israel with its corruption more than what Israel is already also contaminated with the same ambitions as the United States to force Iraqis and Palestinians to civil unrest so that these two evils can rule the world with the constant whip of fear when it did not have to be this wayIT DID NOT HAVE TO BE THIS WAY BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE TO GO OPEN UP THAT BLOOD RIVER UP IN IRAQNOR DID WE HAVE TO HAVE GIVEN ISRAEL THE AMERICAN BOMBS TO DROP ON THE DEFENSELVESS PEOPLE OF PALESTINEno we did not have to do it but we did it and now bush wants to run to the middle east while the blood from Iraq is still dripping from his fangs and his hands?mr. bush, the day of judgment be upon you for thy war crimes on the civilians in Iraq and the government of Iraq and Palestine and may the sword of justice slash in half the two greatest evils in the world contributing to world terrorism with their vicious acts! of greed to control the world you cannot control the world oil mr. bush and you were the "commander in chief" who took american troops to Iraq and sat them there like sitting ducks to fight bush's oil war, burn in hell bush,for the blood you have spilt in Iraq and take Ariel Sharon with you on the way to hades because if Israel really wanted peace to be achieved in the middle east where the jews have forced jewish settlements on palestinian territory without the consent of the Palestinian peopleAriel Sharon would not only withdraw its forced jewish settlements from GAZA but from the WEST BANK ALSO because it just does not seem to be fair to try to tell the world that GAZA is to be returned to its land owners while on the other side of GAZA the WEST BANK will be left to suffer the constant humiliation of the Israeli occupation of a region who like the GAZA deserves and demands to be returned to its landowners so that peace may be achieved but if this were to happen on what reasons would Israel continue bleeding our country with the bombs to drop in palestine on the civilians?because when Israeli american funded bombs have been dropped on the Palestinian people civilians have suffered the consequences and it is time to take into consideration the number of Palestinian children who have not been allowed to live a normal life with the jewish curfews from that hog ariel sharon who should be in front of the war tribune for his war crimes or what does Ariel Sharon hide from us that he committed in Lebanon?I mean if Israel has been allowed to defecate when ever it chose on the Palestinian People,it has been because the U.S. has allowed it and ten middle east peace agreements mr. bush,WILL NOT ERASE THE QUESTIONS REMAINING THAT YOU FAILED TO WARN THE STATE OF NEW YORK ON the evening of August 6, 2001 after receiving credible information from reliable sources, in our american government agencies that a threat to the U.S. was imminentGEORGE BUSH HAS COMITTED WORSE THAN TREASON ON OUR COUNTRY WHEN HE KNOWNLY AND INTENTIONALLY FAILED TO WARN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AFTER IN WRITTEN MEMORANDA, THE BUSH/CHENEY WHITEHOUSE RECIEVED WRITTEN INFOMRATION THAT 'hijackeings" could take place and that "aircraft" could be employed so I hope mr.bush is licking his 9-11 blood tainted vulturous fangs after allowing 9-11 to take place and for allowing such magnitutde of terror to distract the country from the already political fallout the bush adminstration was suffering prior to 9-11 for its inept and incomeptent and destructive demonic ways of running our country under his appointed pathetic presidencyI SAY REMOVE BUSH FROM OFFICE SO THAT NEVER AGAIN DO OUR AMERICAN TROOPS HAVE TO BE THE MARTYRS FOR THE BUSH WHITEHOUSE HEY BUSH, THE TROOPS DID NOT HAVE TO DIE IN YOUR OIL WAR BUT THOU HAS CAUSED THIS DEATH UPON OUR TROOPS NEEDLESSLY WHERE DIALOG AND DIPLOMACY COULD HAVE TAKEN CARE OF THINGS BUT REMEMBER AMERICA WE HAVE A WACKO IN THE WHITEHOUSE AND ITS TIME TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK WITH A NEW PRESIDENT WHO IS ANYBODY BUT THAT REPUBLICAN CORRUPT IDIOTA IN THE BUSH WHITHEOUSE the truth is that republicans hate to hear the truth and they will go to any lengths to twist the truth and keep americans fooled but no longer is our country fooled when we now know that since August 6, 2001, the bush/cheney administration had an obligation and opportunity to warn Americans and what did they do?BY REFUSING TO WARN AMERICANS?well lets see, amd eventhough the right wing hates to hear this things facts are that the bush/cheney administration has flatly lied to americans and they allowed 9-11 to happen this is all that has happened since the August 6, 2001 memo, many people died thanks to george bush and now some of you want to hide the truth but the truth can no longer be hidden from society mr.corrupt bush

I'd be curious about the source for those economic stats. I was wondering if "Former Democrat" has a link/source for this information.Given the spike in gasoline prices, it's almost impossible that inflation will not be affected.BTW Franklin, you forgot to mention that they still haven't caught whoever sent the anthrax all over the Hill.As for whether Democrats "thrive" on bad news, the party out of power always thrives on "bad" news.

BIII = BORDERTEX....Now, back to realityA bit later today a breathless media will be standing by to report on John Kerry's latest campaign gambit ... the "Misery Index." He's going to try to tell Americans just how horrible things are for them.Well, let's see ....Inflation is low Interest rates are low Unemployment is low and new claims for jobless benefits are going down Jobs are being created at the greatest rate in years, and a greater proportion of these jobs are high-paid managerial positions. Family income is at an all-time high, and yes ... that's adjusted for inflation. Almost one-half of wage-earners pay no federal income taxes at all Home ownership levels are also at an all-time high. Fewer people are on welfare Illegitimate birth rates are down Record amounts are being spent on entertainment like movies, theme parks and vacations More and more people are rediscovering their religious faith Yeah .. it's a miserable time to live in America, isn't it? Well, Kerry is sure going to try to convince you that it is. Remember, good news for you is usually bad news for Democrats. Bad news for you is good news for Democrats. Democrats thrive when you suffer. Kerry will do his best today to convince you that you are far more miserable than you really feel. Do you really want to lend your political support to a to a party that thrives on misery? Now we know why John Kerry has

Craig, point taken. In regards to 9/11 some kind of action had to be taken towards Al Qaeda, unfortunately the blowback from helping create this frankenstein had already taken place.I think the Dalai Lama quote summarizes perfectly the situation we have going on in Iraq, which was the original intention for posting the quote.As for Mr. Former Democrat, it would be nice if you gave us some specific examples of these "liars and scoundrels" or of the "incontrovertible evidence of their unfitness and even criminality." Just one example would be enough to at least fill us in on your thinking and start a discussion.Other than that I think you should use your democratic right to vote Green or Independent.

You have accellerated your long-standing and shameful practice of exploiting the gullible and uneducated among us with all manner of lies, false promises, and artful double talk, while actively compromising their freedom and opportunity for self-betterment in any number of devious ways. You work tirelessly to undermine and erode legitimate national undertakings, and lose no opportunity to attempt to subvert our national sovreignity to that corrupt snakepit laughably known as "The United Nations" as well as to such monstrous horrors as "The World Court". You put forward and vigorously support all manner of liars and scoundrels, not excluding Ku Klux Klansmen and murderers, installing these in public office by hook or by crook, to the great detriment of our national interests, and you continue your vehement support of these liars and scoundrels, often for decades, even in the face of incontrovertible evidence of their unfitness and even criminality.

sooner rather than later our country is going to have to allow a woman president at some point in time and who better than Hillary Clinton who is a role model for many women in our country and the world and who understands the challenges of fighting the vomitous corrupt political parties who only know how to destroy the country and economyand either as vice president or president, Hillary will be a great asset for the United States because she has the experience of the Whitehouse already and because she is familiar with the countrie's problems so those of you who say "never"NEVER TO WHAT? TO THE FACT THAT IT IS ABOUT TIME THE CHILD BEARERS HAVE SOME RESPECT IN THIS COUNTRY?OR "NEVER" TO THE FACT THAT JUST YESTERDAY WOMEN WERE THE SLAVES OF MEN WHO HAD TO WAIT ETERNITIES TO VOTE?NEVER? WHY SOME OF YOU ARE STILL IN THE FRAME OF MIND OF WOMEN BASHING AND LEAVING WOMEN OUT OF IMPORTANT PLACES IS BEYOND MOST OF AMERICAN FACES AND some of us just dont understand why women continue earning less mediocre salaries then men and why women are not allowed in the Vatican could it be that that the male population wants to control the world to in offensive slaughters cause massive death like in Iraq?or could it be that the male population wants the Vatican all to themselves so that they could hide from us the mothers of the children the truth behind the perversity in many priests who fondled children I mean I just dont get it how little boys could be safer with perverted priests, than with the maternal love of a child bearer but here we are still in the year 2004 banning women out of places where only the male populations are allowed to rule so yeah, you males may have all the power in the vaticano pretending to be followers of Christ, but when the truth has been uncovered about the priest perversion WHERE WAS CHRIST WHEN THESE PRIESTS WERE FONDLING LITTLE BOYS AND WHERE WAS THE VATICANO FULL OF MEN, TELLING THE CHILDREN TO BE CAREFUL WITH THE FONDLING ROBES IN THE CHURCH?women in this country have been deprived of equal status in society not because men were worth more since they could give birth to children, but because in the lust to be like women many men are now marrying men, pretending to be womenand to this level of degeneration the male population has befallen,to wanting to be women rather than marrying a real woman, some men just dress up a man and pretend he is a woman and is this the same world male population trying to tell us that only Texas ball park appointed wimps can be "presidents?"george bush and cheney are the biggest terrors in the world today and cheney under halliburton knows very well, that he ripped off thousands of dollars under the Iraqi food for oil program this is my friends and foes why cheney helped force the attack on IRAQ SO THAT BY THE TIME THE FOOD FOR OIL PROGRAM QUESTIONS BEGAN TO SURFACEGUESS WHERE WOULD SADDAM BE?exactly, so cheney knew that as chief of halliburton he had pulled some dirty deals in Iraq and the only way to discredit the President of Iraq, was to tear his country up so that like that, Saddam Hussein would be incomunicado with the world by the time the food for oil program questions came around and I mean this is what bush/reagan did to Manuel Noriega, they got him locked up and threw away the key and refused to allow the court who oversaw the Noriega trial to play for the american people the "Noriega Tape" where it would show that bush was up to his neck in Iran Contra but this is how crooks get away with murder and then it was bush and reagan and now it is bush and cheney trying to get away with all the murders in Iraq but I dont think this time it is going to be that easy because bush has not only caused massive american coffins in Iraq but was the governor of Texas when ENRON ripped thousands of stock investors and thenbush appointed an ENRON executive to be secretary of the army,Thomas Whitewho by the way was fired shortly after on October of 2001, Thomas White found the time to rake in his ENRON stockso the situation in our country has been made very dangerous by the incompetent appointed thief of the presidency and our country will pay the price of that everyone can be assured unless, we make it known to the world that we intend to never allow the republican political corruption to destroy foreign countries as bush has done in Iraq who had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! TO DO WITH 9-11 AND BY THE WAY WHERE IN THE HELL ARE THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION WHEN IT IS AMERICAN "500 POUND" BOMBS DESROYING THEIR RELIGIOUS MOSQUES IN THE MOST HOLY OF DAYS?and why are other countries placing their troops at risk in this massacre in Iraq by bush/cheney?AND WHY DID BUSH REFUSE TO ALLOW THE U.N. TO TAKE CHARGE OF TJHIS VERY SERIOUS SITUATION HE HIMSELF CREATED WHICH IS COSTING MANY AMERICAN LIVES?because if he had allowed the U.N. to take charge,mr.bush would be facing tribunals about 9-11 questions and how in his black heart he could find the act of denying the american people the information in the "AUGUST 6, 2001 MEMORANDUM OF THREAT TO THE U.S."so its not hard to break the bush evil pattern of deciet and deception to our country if only some of you had the courage to face the truth about the disaster bush/cheney have been for our country and how it would be irresponsible on our part to allow this republican maggots in the whitehouse to carry on their evil doings in the muslim world the bush/cheney/candoleeza/rumsfeld appointed by the U.S. Supreme Court Administration had an obligation responsibility and duty to the American People and our country on "august 6, 2001" to warn the american people about terror threats to the U.S. by known terror cellsyet the bush/cheney/candoleeza/rumsfeld appointed Whitehouse AdministrationFLATLY REFUSED TO WARN AND FAILED TO WARN AMERICANS OF THE AUGUST 6, 2001 FBI/CIA MEMORANDUM TO THE EXECUTIVE BRANCHbecause like this over three thousand people in New York would meet their deaths in the twin tower terror because bush likes to see american blood spilled in terror so lets stop trying to place the blame on the Democratic Party because IF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT HAD ALLOWED THE POPULAR ELECTORAL VOTE TO ELECT OUR PRESIDENTinstead of appointing the biggest thief and wimp of the taxpayers purse which is george bushOUR COUNTRY WOULD HAVE BEEN IN BETTER HANDS UNDER A DEMOCRATand now some of you want to place the blame for the bush faults in his administration on the Democratic Party when it was also misled in Congress by bush's lies about Iraq? THE BUSH/CHENEY/RICE/RUMSFELD APPOINTED ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN AND IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE THE SOLE RESPONSIBLE PARTIES FOR LYING TO THE COUNTRY AND CONGRESS ABOUT THE REASONS TO ATTACK IRAQ AND WHAT BUSH HAS DONE IN IRAQ IS UNFORGIVABLE AND UNFORGETTABLE BECAUSE WE LOST THE MOST FOR THE FEW GAINS WE HAVE MADE IN IRAQ OR WHAT HAVE WE GAINED BY IGNITING THE PASSIONS OF REVENGE AND AMERICAN TROOPS ARE SPILLING THEIR BLOOD ON THE DIRT OF IRAQ?DID WE GET THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION THE INSPECTORS ON THE GROUND WERE HUNTING FOR WHEN BUSH ATTACKED IRAQ AND THOUGHT HE COULD BE MORE THAN THE WORLD?AND DO WE AS AMERICANS FEEL LEFT OUT OF THE MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE AMERICAN MASSACRE IN AFGHANISTAN OR DOES THE FACT THE BUSH/CHENEY ADMINISTRATION PLACED ITS OWN CHOICE OF LEADERSHIP IN AFGHANISTAN AID IN THE ASSISTANCE TO KEEP THE TRUTH HUSHED HUSHED BECAUSE JUST WHERE IS OSAMA BIN LADEN, THE BUSH BUSINESS PARTNER?AND WHY ARE WE RISKING AMERICAN TROOPS ON THE DESTRUCTION OF RELIGIOUS PLACES IN IRAQ WHEN THERE IS NO INDICATION THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION ARE HIDING IN THE MOSQUE WALL?SOMEBODY EXPLAIN TO THE TERRORISTS OUT THERE THAT IT WAS NOT OUR FAULT BUSH DID THIS TO OUR COUNTRY OR THEY MIGHT BEWANTING TOTAKE IT OUT ONTHE PEOPLE WHAT THAT BASTARD DID TO THEIR COUNTRYhey bush,how about telling the american people why you failed to warn new york of the august 6, 2001 memo?hey there so called "american" you cannot really be from this country if you are trying to blame the bush faults on the Democratic Party and you cannot really be saying the truth when refering to the U.N. by calling it a "snakepit" because for one the only snakepit is the bush whitehouse and the only destructive force in this country who has caused massive job loss has been the bush/cheney administration so please set your sorry record straight because the democracy of the peace rather than war as bush prefers is a very big democracy around the world and mothers and fathers would rather have their troops safe at home than with scattered limbs on the bush bloodrivers of Iraqbut I can understand trying to make fools understand the truth because because most ofthe time they turn their face from the facts and the ones paying the price are our young brainwashed troops in the second Vietnamso let us be fair in placing the blame where it belongs because remember peopleON AUGUST 6, 2001, BUSH/CHENEY/RUMSFELD/RICE failed to warn the people of this country the same people they ripped off in the 2000 elections because this is all treasonous traitors to the country can do and it is not fair to try to tell the people or this forum that the democratic party needs any ammunition to attack bush because bush has opened up the biggest graves on foreign soil all by himself with his republican cronies because remember people it is now 2004 and in 2000, bush was forced by appointment to office and it was bush who was "commander in chief" when he ordered the assault on Iraq dont you all remember when that republican maggot blinked his eyes and told us in his idiot voice that the threat "by Iraq was imminent?"

Mr. CraigYou say: "Never responding is no better than always responding". So sometimes responding and sometimes NOT responding is fine, is that what you're saying?I guess that's what our government has been doing actually. Going after Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan for their roles in 9/11, sometimes respond.Forgiving Saudi Arabia and the Royal Family for their roles in 9/11, sometimes don't respond.I'm not trying to be a wiseass, I understand that the terrorists have to be dealt with, we cannot "do nothing". But it's painful to watch a situation like what is happening right now in Fallujah. A horrible, sickening act was played out before our eyes with the killing of the four security officers. We've now responded and hopefully can catch those responsible. But at what price?The losers will be the innocents of Fallujah and then quite possibly an innocent journalist, not to mention American GIs.A ceasefire was called so that women and children can be evacuated, men are being turned back. Will the destruction of Fallujah and killing of some innocents justify the capture and/or killing of the guilty. Will the realatives of the dead innocents now be inspired to wage violence as payback thus continuing the unending cycle.Where does it end? What is the solution? I don't have the answer but more violence doesn't seem to be working.On a side note, aren't we approaching the anniversary of "Mission Accomplished".

FACT: since the bush/cheney administration was appointed to office by the U.S. supreme court in the year 2000 massive job loss has taken over the country and the children in the United States and the public school system has been totally abandoned with the promise of forcing all the students to go to religious institutions as if any religious charity was clean enough to use religion in its teachingstoday we have unmasked the biggest hipocrits of the modern western strange and questionable lifestyle where under the robes of the priesthood, they hid their perversions while preying on the choir boysyes our religious congregations have let down the worshippers when it is now known that these perverts impersonating Christ and his teachings, had perversion on their minds and it is this extreme right religious corruption by priests in their black gowns which supports the republican partyor why else does the republican party pry and invade a womans right to her medical decisions? and why is it al right for an extreme right winger like Rush limbaugh to indulge in his medical addiction and exploite the airwaves under the influence of a dangerous drug and not alright for women to make thier body decisions in medical thier medical privacy?The republican party has spat on women's right to her medical privacy and has interfered in a woman's right to choose not because it has the medical expertise to act as a medical intruder but because the republican party wants to mix religious myth with the federal government and I say to bush and his cronies who invade our bedrooms and the right of women to choosewe will not be female slaves to the republican party and the right to our medical privacy has been invaded because this is the only political weapons republicans have learned to bleedand when it came to health issues of americans,where were the republicans? arresting gays in thier bedrooms in Texas and invading every womans right to her own medical decisions so hey bush, you might be able to tell Laura Bush and the twin girls, what to do with thier bodies but you cannot tell the rest of the women what to do with our reproductive organs because until you have a female private part, how can your par de testiculos sir, if any, tell us women what to do when mr. bush you dont even know the experience of childbirth or labor pains or menstrual cycles? so just where does the republican party come in trying to tell women what to do with thier bodies? and why dosent mr.bush and the republican party tell men to stop taking viagara? Women have been persecuted by the republican party and we aim to put a stop to this abusive humilation of women under republican administrations do you hear me right wingers? that this is the year 2004 and it is no longer 1940 but it feels like we have returned to the ignorance of the sixtys in the racial continuity the bad treatment of colored americans where more minority colored soldiers in Iraq have been killed since this massacre by bush in Iraq started,so what has the republican party given americans if they took everything from us? and when instead of giving us medical access,they sided with their pill making buddies in the pharmacies to make americans their guinea s or why else under the bush administraton have more pills made it to market without being really investigated as to their side effects?today the only entities in society who have benefited under the bush/cheney regime have been big business and big lobbyists and no longer is our country safe when we start attacking foreign territories who did not attack us and today we ourselves under the bush regime,have taunted the world terrorism with the promise of delivering to the death squads in Iraq our troops on the bush silver platter, so there "may be no silver bullet" TO HAVE PREVENTED 9-11 LIKE cANDOLEEZA SAID, but we sure have delivered our american troops on a silver platter to the death squads in the cemetary of Iraq under george w. bush the american tryant !

Mr. DollyDo you really think violence is the way to win over friends in the world? Isn't violence how all this got started in the first place? A violent act against innocent civilians. Also, take your own statement "I'm a big believer in the principle of letting our enemies know, in no uncertain terms, that violence will be met with violence."and apply it to the terrorists, does it still work? Who wins if both sides believe in this principle? Let's llok back on history, like the Arab/Israeli conflict. Explain how your principle "seems to work"."Seems" to me like a lot of innocent people die.

Why is it you liberals have such a problem with common sense? I'm a big believer in the principle of letting our enemies know, in no uncertain terms, that violence will be met with violence. That's how you reduce the threat. Look back over history. It seems to work. And to borrow a quote from the liberal Mike Newcomb's website (http://www.onsecondthought.net/), "Words matter, both spoken and written. Dialogue and discourse are, after all, the hallmarks of our democracy. However, when rancor and rhetoric prevail, our esteemed institutions become threatened" I agree, so why don't you liberals dial it back a bit? After all, you are the ones engaging in rancor and rhetoric. Conservatives "pose a more serious threat than terrorists". Yeah, I like your example of discourse. I want to puke when I see Democratic Senators throwing down the V word, and spewing other defeatist garbage. It's obvious they would rather try to score some political points at the cost of our war effort, so what does that say about them?

Contrary to what the republican view would like to say Candoleeza Rice was very evasive and constantly refused to give straight yes or no answers because this would have buried george bush more in hell and we all know this and those who pretend and try to say that Candoleeza was straightforward must have missed the entire word manipulation by the republican nazi Candoleeza who appears to think she is above all the dead victims of 9-11 and placed limits on her testimonyand rushing the questions by the timed limited questioning, Senators did not get straight answers from Candoleeza because everytime the question called for a yes or no answer, Candoleeza refused to answer and set her own terms of the questioning process of a comittee investigation, where over three thousand dead victims, would be alive todayIF GEORGE BUSH AND CANDOLEEZA HAD WARNED THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND THE COUNTRY OF THE MEMO OF "AUGUST 6, 2001"yes, you know , the "memo of august 6?" where the threat to the nation was made?WELL THAT MEMO,THE ONE THAT BUSH AND CANDOLEEZA REFUSE TO SHOW THE COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY ARE HIDING SOMETHING AND THE TRUTH OR THE FEAR OF THE TRUTH IS MORE IMPORTANT TO BUSH THAN THE DISCLOSURE OF THE FACTS for after all, if bush and condi have nothing to hide from America and the "state department is aware of all pilot students in all the states of the U.S." then why are they afraid to show us the memo?SHOW US THE MEMO BUSH YES, THE MEMO WHERE THE THREAT IS MADE TO AMERICANS AND YOU AND CONDI KEPT ITALL TO YOURSELVESbecause it was more important for bush to cause chaos in the world to have a reason to start wars and splurge the military bloodTHAN TO HAVE WARNED NEW YORK yes bush you had an obligation to the country and it was your failed duty to warn americans, and as a result 9-11 terror victims jumped to their deaths from the frying buildingsjBUSH ALLOWED TO BURN TO SERVE HIS POLITICAL PLATFORMfor why else would bush and condi allow this merciless act to take place after recieving the memo?YES! RECIEVING THE MEMO IN THEIR DAILY BRIEFING AND FAILING, TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE INFO ON THE MEMO SO FBI AND CIA DID THIER JOB IT WAS GEORGE BUSH AND CONDI AND ALL HIS CORRUPT VULTURE ADVISORS, WHO FAILED AMERICANS AND WE DONT NEED THIS KINDS OF CROOKS IN OFFICE America,no, we dont need this crooks in officeIf Candoleeza Rice thinks her limited testimony and rushed questioning and smiling smirks during her lengthy chapters when answering the questions evading the subject through her flowery language,I have news for Candoleeza,YOU DID NOT FOOL ALL OF US AND MOST OF US SAW RIGHT THROUGH THAT LYING FACE OF CANDOLEEZA because on August7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18.19.20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,and September 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,GEORGE BUSH AND CANDOLEEZA RICE, HAD AN OPPORTUNITY, EVERY HOUR OF EVERY DAY PRIOR TO 9-11 IN WHICH THEY FAILED TO WARN AND REFUSED TO WARN THE COUNTRY OF A NATIONAL THREAT so the question is not whether bush knew where the terror would hit the question today is why did not george bush think it was important to warn the country?and how could this treasonous , be allowed to get away with all the 9-11 murders while his cat candoleeza lies under oath and tries to cover up what they causedIF BUSH AND CONDOLEEZA DONT GOT NOTHING TO HIDE THEN SHOW US THE AUGUST 6, 2001 MEMO MR.BUSH,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and condi, it was not a colgate commercial to flash your fangs because there was nothing humorous about 9-11 yet this republican nazi kept finding something to smile about maybe condi thinks it was humorous to allow all those 9-11 victims to get killedMAYBE CONDI, NEEDS A LIE DETECTOR TEST MAYBE BUSH NEEDS ONE TOO...........................

BIII, I think this guy agrees with me, but it's hard to follow it all.Anyway... I didn't label Kennedy. The problem is not necessarily the message (although, as I said, in this case it was simplistic), the problem is the messenger.
Posted by: BLOWBACK
Regarding "ted":You just keep thinking that way there BIIIly boy. We need more kool-aid drinkers like you banging that party bongo! Denial is a very importanat tool of the useful idiots as we maxists know all too well.In swirling mists of heavy fog, within this crystal ball I see a vision of the future, that awaits us all. I SEE A DIVERGENT AMERICA, if Bush is Elected. He will immediately institute the DRAFT, so all young unemployed persons (M & F) will be coerced into military service, (which is a Socialist structure) where all become "govt property", & lose their individual rights. They are simply pawns in Bush's EverLasting War, with 50 nations, to last 2 or 3 generations. With that agenda, you need a huge Army & military force. By encouraging Mexicans & illegal aliens to invade us by the millions, (like the barbarians at the gate of Rome) they will take all low-paying unskilled jobs, & then resort to crime & robbery, if they can't find jobs. Our welfare system is already swamped with 1/3 of Mexican immigrants getting on Welfare. We already suffer a LACK of good Jobs going into 2005, & new Tiajuana Arrivals will exacerbate the problem. Where will ordinary citizens find a Job? If John Doe citizen goes in search of LOW-paying jobs, he is out of luck, since Juan Valdez grabbed them first. If he goes seeking HIGH-Paying jobs, - He would have to move to India or Brazil. (Outsourcing is so great). So WHERE does John Doe find a job? Answer: All jobs are gone, & unemployment is rampant, & UNIONS no longer exist. The only alternative, is the military. Joining the military is giving away your rights, putting yourself at the mercy of any officer in rank above you, & They tell you what to wear, (a uniform), they tell you what to eat (MRE"s), and they tell you what to say, (Yes Sir, Yes Sir), AND they tell you when to sleep, what duties you will perform, and they have whole systems of punishment for you if you think for yourself or if you disobey. You may be shipped off at a moment's notice to a battlefield like Iraq, & you may have to exchange bullets with total strangers. Indoctrination will tell you what to think, & it is Big Brother all day. Watching your every move. ALL THIS FOR POVERTY INCOME. The luckier ones will beg at the feet of the wealthy Republicans for a job. Corporate crooks like CEO's of Enron & Halliburton will control all Wealth, & control Congress & foreign policy. Under Bush, none of the "crooks" will ever be punished. Are you kidding, hurt their contributors? John & Jane Doe will humbly beg for whatever crumbs the greedy CEO's allow them. Salaries will be low, for WE will be competing with all the 3rd world countries for wages. Once unions are gone, (outlawed by Repubs), the workers will have NO POWER, to barter for benefits & perks. It will be dog eat dog, just trying to put Bread upon your table. In an instant, Bush & his Military Machine has made this USA into a nation of slaves. People in the military have NO rights & are subject to prison or court martial. They must risk their lives, at any time, for poverty pay. OTHER workers must work for crumbs, or be threatened that their job may disappear off to India. So all the Wealth & Power has been concentrated at the Top, while all the Jane & John Doe's are put into perpetual drudgery, & essential rights taken away. They too will be forced to work for low poverty wages, IF THEY WANT TO KEEP THEIR JOB. Republicans in Congress yesterday refused to give US workers a minimum wage of $7 per hour, so they could afford to feed their kids. That is $1,200 Month, (approx) Or $14,400 a Year, before taxes. NET: $11,500 YR. (TRY TO LIVE ON THAT). But the greedy Republicans don't want Americans to have even this abysmally low salary, since THEY WANT TO KEEP ALL their MONEY, (mostly made by crooked corporation deals, & by stock market manipulations, & by inheritance.) But they can't pay actual WORKERS a decent wage, & would rather give jobs to foreign workers, & invest in Iraqi oil & drugs, & arms smuggling. THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. A BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD & EVIL. Massive corporate corruption, with ties to organized crime, & international cartels of arms & dope, LUST FOR GREED & POWER, no respect for tradition, or the Constitution, or even Nature itself. The REPUBLICAN PARTY has fallen into Evil Hands. They are full of phoney preachers, (like Jerry Falwell) & phoney healers, & exorcists. A CIRCUS of jesters & clowns to entertain the masses. And LOOT them of their money, of course. A good religious scam, now & then, always helps. Like PTL, for instance. (Tammy Faye Bakker) & One horribly sick preacher sells tapes saying the Clintons are witches & are working for the New World Order. On a Fundamentalist Baptist site. PROFITING by peddling this twisted rubbish. The Republicans have shown they will stop at nothing to gain & keep Power. They broke into Dem Hdqtrs (Watergate) to bug the offices & steal supplies, & videotape scenes to blackmail Dem Congressmen. They stole NATO supplies & smuggled dope to create money to fund a secret revolution in Nicaragua (IRAN-CONTRA), ---- they bribed Ayatollah to hold our American hostages for several extra weeks, just so Reagan could take the credit for their return. And win the election away from Carter. -- they told lies to get us into Iraq, so OIL could be siphoned out. -- They rigged the election of 2000, after bribing numerous officials in FLA. & using favors from Supreme Court nominees, they took over the Electoral Process, (which took away our Democracy). Under Bush, the Patriot Act will be made permanent, so Big Brother can monitor your internet useage, keep you under his gaze, all day & night. The Thought Police will be sure you never criticize your Commander in Thief, or there will be serious consequences. George can declare you to be a "terrorist", such as IF you are an environmentalist & believe in protecting wildlife, harp seals, or Nature. OR if you belong to the so-called "terrorist organization of NEA, (teachers union). Like in all Fascist dictatorships, they always arrest the teachers & smart people, at the same time as they are imprisoning the opposition leaders. All who pose a "threat" to Big Brother (basically anybody with a Brain & Independent Thought) must be imprisoned, so this will become a commonplace activity under Bush. Lucky kids won't be required to go to school anymore. In fact, education is optional. The Govt will point to our Feuhrer, Geo Bush as an Example that "You don't gotta be smart to be President". And being Dumb serves the purposes of Republican leaders. Dumb people can't organize any kind of Revolt, against evil dictators. And Dumb people are the only ones who would still vote for Bush, IF Elections are ever going to be allowed. They will be abolished soon. The Future under George Bush will not resemble our America at all. A huge Tranformation will have taken place. Suppression of Freedom & Free Thought will be the first thing you notice, along with grim faces without HOPE. HOWEVER, THE ALTERNATIVE, under JOHN KERRY: Economic surplus will become a top priority, & getting the budget balanced, for economic stability. A unique plan to manage the Iraq War, so we can depart & leave the fighting to the UN or other forces. Better education & health care for all, Search for better Energy sources, instead of OIL. - may include hydrogen fuel cell cars, & wind turbines. Stop outsourcing of our jobs, & stop immigration in the massive numbers that are coming now, (ie) Mexico. People encouraged to get a GOOD Education, so they can recognize a good candidate, & correct sides of every issue if they ever see it

Interesting points on Teddy. Is he just using "his boy" Kerry's nomination as his personal last stand in the presidential political arena, or is he truly helping the Democratic cause by attacking.I don't think he's less credible or respected than other Dems when it comes to the majority of swing voters, I don't think the majority of swing voters could name many Senior Senators, and I don't think his method is really any different than the Republicans.I think mostly he's just been around so long he's easy to label. He does have his own style that can rub some people the wrong way but I personally think the Dems need to stay on the offensive and Ted is good at that.Summing up a complex situation with a memorable sound bite, i.e. something "stupid and simplistic" is something the Bush administration has turned into an art form.Ted's just fighting fire with fire.

Criticism is valid, and especially necessary during war. What Powell should have attacked was the analogy, which was stupid and simplistic. Iraq is not Vietnam. What would be really helpful is if Ted Kennedy would just shut up. Right or wrong, he does more harm than good to the future prospects of Democrats whenever he opens his mouth, or shows up in a picture with Kerry. He turns off swing voters. He should be behind the scenes raising money and consolidating the base, and the Dems should find a more credible and respectable critic.

No criticism please, remember we're at war, don't forget it.WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Colin Powell cautioned Sen. Edward M. Kennedy to be more careful in criticizing the war in Iraq after the Massachusetts Democrat called the conflict "George Bush's Vietnam." Kennedy "should be a little more restrained and careful in his comments because we are at war," Powell said Tuesday on Fox News Radio's "Tony Snow Show."

Vandals deface Veterans Memorial; local residents reactBy ANITA MILLER - News EditorPosted: Sunday, Apr 04, 2004 Richard Cruz, project manager for the memorial, believes the paint defacing 26 engraved bricks can be safely removed. A gasp of disbelief, a sad shake of the head and a feeling of general disgust.That's how San Marcos residents reacted Saturday morning at the sight of graffiti spray-painted on the still under construction Hays County Veterans Memorial.Sometime overnight, someone used yellow spray paint to write "Kill Bush" on a section of the memorial where names of local veterans are displayed on a sloping wall. The same slogan, along with others, was repeated on the back of the memorial... http://www.sanmarcosrecord.com/articles/2004/04/04/news/news2.txtGood job guys! Keep up the great and courageous work. Franklin will surly be proud

dear "you know who"boy, that's a lot of anger. I think you make our points very well. Both Iraq and Vietnam are/were useless wars which makes it even more horrible that so many young men and women are subjected to the horror. And for what? To stop the so-called "domino effect" and prop up the corrupt south vietnamese dictatorship of the time? To stop weapons of mass destruction that did not exist (with the Resident even going so far as to make fun of that fruitless search?).Yes, horror and horrible. All to feed politicians' LIES. The fact that so many people's lives are being destroyed does not take away from the fact that the politicans LIED us into those nightmares. Oh, yes, Gulf of Tonkin incident led us into Vietnam. Turned out that the incident was fabricated. Tens of thousands of American deaths and possibly hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese lives later, it is revealed that it was a LIE.Search the public record. Wars are based on LIES. And for that, your friends DIE. It should make your blood boil and you should become an activist AGAINST the war.Being AGAINST the war is not the same as being AGAINST the servicemen and women, despite what rabid right wingers like to say or the Bushies. I know a few men there or who could be involved myself. I don't think they're dicks or baby killers but I do know that situations like Fallujah can easily turn into Mi Lais. AND THAT SUCKS.So thank you "You know who" (I don't) for expressing your feelings and your conviction. Now, let's have a discussion without name calling and maybe we'll get somewhere.By the way, Kerry needs to dump Rand Beers. If you don't know who he is, look him up.

this message is to those of you who have recently expressed their feelings about the useless wars in vietnam and now in iraq. you think our troops did terrible things to the enemy in vietnam? you think our troops are dying for no reason in iraq. i say fuck you. you have no idea what those men have seen. just yesterday, 4 american civilians were killed in iraq, contractors who were there to help rebuild the country. they were attacked and killed. their bodies were drug through the streets and then hung from a bridge so the town could cheer about the dead americans. so they could spit on and throw rocks at their bodies. does that not anger you? does that not make you want something to be done? do you not feel like somone should react to this injustice? before that, hussein killed his own people in masses. he deserves the worst, and so do those insurgents in that country. as for the soldiers in vietnam, think about what they saw. every day they saw their friends and brothers die at the hands of the enemy. one day a local would bring them a knick-knack that they had made, and the next day they would throw a grenade at them. you would have a burning hatred and anger towards the enemy if you saw that every day as well. how did you feel when the twin towers fell? multiply that by 100. that's how those men felt after seeing that shit day in and day out for a year. it breaks a man down, and the only thing left is the base animal instinct of survival. wild and brutal survival, and anything to send a message to others could and would be done. as impossible as it is for you to understand, at least try. look at all sides of the story before you call something useless, or before you judge a man in his actions.
