napalm anyone????

boy we are going out of our way to win the hearts and minds.....don'tya just love what is being done in our name......america, it's time to look in the mirror.....

KUWAIT (Feb. 2, 2003) -- Thousands of pounds of munitions were offloaded from a ship in a port here Feb. 1, by Sailors with Navy Cargo Handling and Port Group and contracted civilians aboard the S.S.Cape Jacob.The operation has been going on for some time, with the constant undertaking of offloading, receiving and shipping of munitions........Once the munitions depart the port, they are trucked to different locations throughout the country and stored in compounds surrounded by motion sensors. Everything from hand grenades to 2,000-pound bombs and napalm are shipped, ready for use whenever 3rd MAW needs them.

US troops are secretly using outlawed napalm gas to wipe out remaining insurgents in and around Fallujah.
News that President George W. Bush has sanctioned the use of napalm, a deadly cocktail of polystyrene and jet fuel banned by the United Nations in 1980, will stun governments around the world.
And last night Tony Blair was dragged into the row as furious Labour MPs demanded he face the Commons over it. Reports claim that innocent civilians have died in napalm attacks, which turn victims into human fireballs as the gel bonds flames to flesh.
Outraged critics have also demanded that Mr Blair threatens to withdraw British troops from Iraq unless the US abandons one of the world's most reviled weapons. Halifax Labour MP Alice Mahon said: "I am calling on Mr Blair to make an emergency statement to the Commons to explain why this is happening. It begs the question: 'Did we know about this hideous weapon's use in Iraq?'"
Since the American assault on Fallujah there have been reports of "melted" corpses, which appeared to have napalm injuries.
Last August the US was forced to admit using the gas in Iraq.
A 1980 UN convention banned the use of napalm against civilians - after pictures of a naked girl victim fleeing in Vietnam shocked the world.
America, which didn't ratify the treaty, is the only country in the world still using the weapon.

Fallujah “almost gone”
Kassem Mohammed Ahmed, who fled Fallujah last week, said that he witnessed many atrocities committed by U.S. troops in the shattered city. "I watched them roll over wounded people in the street with tanks," he said. "This happened so many times."

democracy not theocracy

to begin to understand the forces behind the takeover of the republican party by radical nut jobs who seek to impose their beliefs on the rest of us i recommend checking out http://www.theocracywatch.org/
Politicians once followed the slogan, "It's the economy, stupid!" Since the 2004 election we have been hearing that "moral values" have become more important to voters than their own economic self interest. But the term "moral" is twisted and misused.

and especially "The Rise of Dominionism"recorded October 11, 2004, 44 minutes
it's a great place to start in understanding the threat to our democracy that these people pose. they see no place in this country or the world for us non-believers.

republicans outraged over election fraud

richard and colin weigh in.......it bodes well for our democracy when our leaders are willing to stand up and demand clean elections!!!!!!!!!!

and that our media is all over this story.....on top of it!!!! sooooo cool!

"We cannot accept this result [of the presidential election in Ukraine] as legitimate because it does not meet international standards and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse," he said. Powell said it is time for Ukraine's leaders to decide whether or not they are on the side of democracy.

And Richard Lugar, head of the U.S. Senate foreign relations committee, said the Ukrainian authorities had supported concerted fraud in Sunday's presidential election.
"It is now apparent that there was a concerted and forceful program of election day fraud and abuse enacted with the leadership or co-operation of authorities," said Lugar

Richard Lugar
"We've had many reports of irregularities," Motria Onyschuk-Moroz, a Canadian election observer in Ukraine, told CBC Newsworld. "Many people were turned away during election day and had to contest their right to vote in court. They were forced to wait for hours in long lines at the courts."

so glad we don't have to worry about that shit here!!!!!

love the fetus...what about the children?

Where is the outrage?? Does any of this sound familiar?? hint-Black men studied for long term effects of syphylis when they could have been cured. (just one example) Where are the fetus-loving repubs after the children are born? And boy do i trust these people......"In October, the EPA received $2.1 million to do the study from the American Chemistry Council, a chemical industry front group that includes members such as Dow, Exxon, and Monsanto." Can't wait to see the objective conclusions. Wonder if any of their children or grandchildren will be participating??

In exchange for participating for two years in the Children's Environmental Exposure Research Study, which involves infants and children up to age 3, the EPA will give each family using pesticides in their home $970, some children's clothing and a camcorder that parents can keep.

The study entitled Children’s Environmental Exposure Research Study (CHEERS) will look at how chemicals can be ingested, inhaled or absorbed by children ranging from babies to 3 years old.

maybe i should have asked for valium

It all started today when I went to the doc to get a renewal on the blood pressure med. I know there are other things I should be doing and I will. I was honest about my recent return to smoking. I know I must move to quitting very soon. I just quit for 5 years so I know how this works. As my sister once told me, the problem with starting again is then you just want to quit. She has a lot of experience, as do I, and I believe that theory to be correct. So back to the doc. He is very nice and I’m sure wise for his age of about 35 I’m guessing. He tells me everybody has struggle and they always will …no escaping. And I don’t want to end up a patient where I work he reminds me. I agree I want to continue to get paid to be there. I’m sure he thought perhaps I had a relationship problem, money problem, surley child problem or some other usual problems all humans are faced with. We discussed my medical situation, he listened to my heart and lungs, we discussed options and agreed on a course of action involving medication. Now I ‘m not blameing my bad choices on the current situation and yet……how the hell am I supposed to sit calmly by as my country, now known as the homeland, is careening at breakneck speed toward a totalitarian, fascist theocracy???? We have been taken over in a coup, as we relatively quietly watched two presidential elections in a row stolen. Our treasury has been looted and they have plans for more. Our schools have been gutted. Two wars have been started, the mastermind behind a massive terrorist attack on our country remains at large. Our young men and women are on foreign soil killing and being killed based on a total lie. We are torturing the people we went to liberate since the Geneva Conventions are now thought to be “quaint”. We are trashing the environment. We have raised the debt ceiling($8.200,000,000,000….well, they will on Monday…guess they’re resting a couple of days first…..they are “hard working” people.) We changed the rules so you don’t have to give up a leadership position in congress if you are indicted. Special new rules to protect repugnicuns from those partison “crackpot district attorneys”. The cia has been purged. The homeland sercurity department will now have no oversight. Does any of this sound familiar????????????? Picture yourself with a wheelbarrel of cash to go buy a few potatoes. Or maybe we will just have to give up some of those highpriced safety nets. Does it sound familiar???? So anyway how can I explain to this bright-eyed, well healed young doc. I will sit on my porch, brood, feed the birds, pet the cat and dogs, apologize to the earth and it’s inhabitants and SMOKE. I am getting involved with the other people who also know what is going on. It is very helpful. Some really cool people have been trying long before I was paying attention. I will continue and learn all I can. Maybe I will even figure out what the hell I’m supposed to be doing and hopefully quit the butts again soon……….

Making it up as they go.

The Republicans -[the Moral Values people]- are changing the rules .

freedom is on the march......

I hope Americans will wake up to what is being done in their name. These pictures are very disturbing and not for the faint of heart. Why are we in Iraq and why do we have to kill the Iraqi people????? The bush crime family is committing armed robbery using our military to do it. We are paying all the bills and our children and families are used as their cannon fodder. The crime family is getting richer and richer with every passing day. Blood, death and destruction appear everywhere the bush crime family goes. They have seized our country. When will we wake up to see how evil these people are?????? What does "winning" in Iraq look like????? Who will be next????? Is this really ok with 51% of America????? Perpetual war is not a moral value. War crimes are NOT moral values!!!!!!!!

I'm a Real American... How about You?


who are they serving????

Seems like the mainstream press is shilling again for the corrupt evil regime that has seized power in our country. Just as they did when the crime family embarked on the illegal war on Iraq, they not only aren't asking any questions they are quick to shame anyone who dares to. The illusion we just suffered, that was passed off as an election, should have raised questions from every responsible corner but they seem united in denial.

Washington Post's Sloppy Analysis
By Sam ParryNovember 12, 2004
The Washington Post and the big media have spoken: Questions about Nov. 2 voting irregularities and George W. Bush’s unusual vote tallies are just the ravings of Internet conspiracy theorists.

Bob Fitrakis

None dare call it voter suppression and fraud November 7, 2004
Evidence is mounting that the 2004 presidential election was stolen in Ohio. Emerging revelations of voting irregularities coupled with well-documented Republican efforts at voter suppression prior to the election suggests that in a fair election Kerry would have won Ohio.

any bets????

any bets on how long before they bring the draft out in the open......i'll guess march or april o5....and i shutter to think of what incentives they may have in mind for us to whip up a wave of patriotic enthusiasm.....

Potomac Watch: Administration's own actions fuel rumors of draft
WASHINGTON -- Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld indignantly scoffs and scolds about the relentless rumors that the Bush administration is planning to reinstate the military draft.

Can you feel the draft????

It's startin' to get real scary out there. It strikes me they don't want people speaking truth to the future cannon fodder....

Saving our democracy

I have heard people saying just get over it and move on. Well i'm just not interested in getting over it. If we don't know what just happened to us it is bound to happen again. I want to know if election fraud took place. I don't care if it changes the devastating results, but if we make no effort to expose it we have no chance to change what needs to be changed. There may be a small group of people in America who are happy with the results at any cost but I believe most Americans want to know their vote matters. I believe the election was stolen but I also know that we have to be able to show that to be taken seriously. There are people working hard to shine the light on what occurred. They are true patriots.

Bev Harris from black box voting is one of those people
there is a new organization setting up right now to use a law in ohio to request a citizen recount...they are just getting the site up and are planning to target the counties with most glaring discrepancies....it costs money to do this so they are asking for help to rapidly go forward. http://helpamericarecount.org/
"Every vote must be recounted in Ohio and the methods for counting and conveying precinct totals must be checked and rechecked," Alliance Co-chair Cliff Arnebeck announced.

an election??????

We did not have an election, we had an illusion. There was nothing wrong with our campaign or our candidates, we won. There were many ways this illusion was created. see Greg Palast's nov 5th piece. karl rove,aka the architect, has his fingerprints all over this one. As democrats we do not need to redefine ourselves. We just need to firmly and proudly stand for what we have always stood for. Human rights, civil rights and the protection of the environment. We do not need to proclaim our religious affiliations or personal spiritual beliefs. Separation of church and state has never been more important. Our values are just fine. We do not need to be defined by our enemies. We must return to a paper ballot(not a paper trail). Corporate owned voting machines must be thrown out. We must de-privatize our elections and reclaim our democracy. Voter suppression must never be tolerated. These evil thugs, thieves and murderers will over step and we must unite and be ready to guide this nation back to sanity.
