He says:"We will fight them in Iraq, we will fight them across the world and we will stay in the fight until the fight is won".

Who are they?

Where are they?

How will we know when the fight is won?

While he lives in comfort and peace, young men and women will die, and will kill people who have done them no harm. What will he sacrifice?

He makes me sick.

Elsewhere, an exhibit about how easily we can turn people into them.

all I want is one question answered and as of yet there has not been a answer or a question posed for that matter....before Saddam was disposed of all the Iraqui oil profits went into their coffers, but now with the state of the nation as it is, insurgency ruling with no government to speak of in place....where are the oil profits going?...plain and simple give me a answer, insurgency, unrest is a smokescreen for the oil companies to loot the nations wealth...and now with Iran in their sights oil will hit $100 a barrel easily...and where will that money go...just one person to stand up in the white house press room and ask where is the money from the oil which is still flowing and been protected by U.S. troops since the beginning, going....watch the administration stumble for a answer...

Speaking of demonizing propaganda, I just found this fascinating poster online. Apparently, this was the model for Fearless Leader from the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show.

From Rigorous Intuition:

Have you read the Iraqi police report of last week's little Helter Skelter outside Tikrit?

From Knight Ridder:

At 230 of 15/3/2006, according to the telegram (report) of the Ishaqi police directorate, American forces used helicopters to drop troops on the house of Faiz Harat Khalaf situated in the Abu Sifa village of the Ishaqi district. The American forces gathered the family members in one room and executed 11 people, including 5 children, 4 women and 2 men, then they bombed the house, burned three vehicles and killed their animals (map coordinates 098702).

They were:

Turkiya Muhammed Ali, 75 years

Husam Harat Khalaf, 6 months. She probably had a tooth or two coming in. She must have been wailing as the strangers shouted foreign words to her family and pointed those shiny black things, and at the noise that they made. Unless she was the first.
