So Where is the White House’s Apology to Iraq?

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

The White House is admitting that Iraq is likely to face violence for years to come. OK, so where is their apology to Iraq?
Let’s understand this…the White House invaded Iraq on the premise that they had weapons and posed a threat to us. The White House lied. They removed Saddam from his position based on that threat. The threat turned out to be wrong. Where was the apology for falsely accusing Saddam?

Now that the White House and the media have successfully revised history so that the original reason for invading Iraq is no longer acknowledged, we realize that as a result of their “liberation” of the Iraqi people they have destabilized Iraq which will now to be a violent place for years (according to the White House). OK…so where is their apology?

Am I wrong here? Am I stupid for believing that a nation that conducts itself in a way that results in creating a dangerous and deadly environment for another nation should at the very least apologize for doing so? Am I wrong in saying that the people who made the decision to do such a thing should be removed from office for their incompetence? They have proven that they are not responsible enough to control a military. Am I wrong for saying that the people who decided to do such a thing and lied in order to do it should be charged with crimes against humanity?

But at the end of the day is an apology really to much to expect from the people who created the conditions that have led to all of this violence? Think about it!

Global Warming…Is Anyone Listening to the Warnings?

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

What has to happen before we heed the warnings of the scientists who are telling is in clear terms that global warming is the greatest threat to life on earth? I have said time and time again that terrorism has posed less (statistically verifiable) of a threat to human life than everything from drunk drivers to medical malpractice. Of course environmental toxins can also be blames for millions of deaths by a number of diseases but global warming is moving up the threat list fast!

It’s like we are living in a bad movie where nobody is listening to the good guy/girl while people are dying all over the place. We watched in horror as something we never thought would happen did; the WTC towers crumbled to the ground (actually they exploded, but that is another story!) How are we going to feel when the island of Manhattan is swallowed up by the sea?

When I worked at the Associated Press I had a guy on my staff who was a Marine Reserve Warrant Officer. He was a cool guy but he approached his job like a Marine in one respect. He used to operate with the mindset that it is always easier to apologize than it is to ask for permission. An apology might suffice coming from a Marine who took an extra 45 minutes extra on his lunch break so that he could shove as much “all you can eat” sushi down his throat. An apology won’t suffice for ignoring warnings about global warming. When the real horrors of global warming come to fruition apologies will be greeted with the immortal words of Seinfeld’s George Costanza; “you could stuff your sorry’s in a sack, mister!” That is, if we survive long enough to say it. Think about it!

Fox News Promotes Pro-Torture Spokesperson

Monday, November 28th, 2005

On Fox News, Neil Cavuto had a guest, Brigitte Gabriel from American Congress for Truth who came on to dispute the outrage over the torture and abuses taking place in Iraq. Her argument ws that Arabs expect torture. She said that Arabs look for strength in their leaders and they look for leaders who break the back of their enemies. She was making an argument in favor of the torture that is taking place today at the hands of the new post-Saddam, American imposed leadership!

Well…isn’t that what Saddam did? This neocon came on to justify the torture taking place in Iraq today by condoning the very thing that she & FOX News condemned Saddam for!

How do these people get away with this insanity?

CNN: Drugs Good, Natural Cures…Never Heard of Them!

Monday, November 28th, 2005

This morning, after CNN finished bringing us the vital in depth update on the status of Kato Kaelin (from the OJ trial), they did a nice long piece on young teens needing sleeping pills. In the case of the teen they used as an example it was said that this teen tried everything, including not having caffeine “after school!” They passed over this little tidbit as they talked about every prescription drug available to aid sleep.

Not once did they talk about the fact that teens, most notably teen girls, spend quite a lot of time drinking lattes and other fancy coffees. Do you know that latte has espresso (please notice that there is no x in that word, it is not expresso…which would be a good name for an overnight delivery service) in it? There was no mention of how much sugar (soft drinks) or other poisons were ingested by this teen, or other teens. There was no mention of smoking, which also interferes with sleep.

There was no discussion of any natural or herbal sleep remedy, such as valerian, kava-kava, melatonin, L-Tryptophan (the stuff in turkey that makes you sleepy after your Thanksgiving day meal, which was suddenly taken off of the market when Prozac was approved but restrictions were loosened in 2001), warm milk or even exercise! Drugs were the only solution entertained by today’s report.

I am convinced that the business of medicine is as evil as it is good. I think that there is a concerted effort on behalf of the pharmaceutical companies to keep you sick so that you remain a loyal paying customer. I am also convinced that they are behind the regulations that are in the works that will inhibit our rights to purchase or possess nutrients and herbs. We have to start paying more attention to how we poison our own bodies and how we address the symptoms of the poisoning. Common sense and nature should always be part of your self evaluation and don’t let CNN tell you different! Think about it!

Politics: It’s Not How You Feel, It’s What You Know!

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

People often as me how I “feel” about George W. Bush, or how I feel about other politician. I respond by telling them what I “know” about the person they are asking me about.

So many people tell me how they “feel” about Bush (for example), yet they know nothing about the man or his administration. This is a clear result of America’s deceptive news media.

The same goes for 9/11. People tell me that they “feel’ that it is impossible for Americans, especially those in government, to take part in such an atrocity.

OK, I am happy these people have feelings, but you have to make your judgments based on information, not instinct. Politics is not religion, you don’t need to rely on faith, proof and information are available. It’s about time we stopped feeling one way or another until we find out exactly how we should feel. The information is out there, use it.

I’ll Tell You How You’d Feel! You’d Feel Like an Iraqi!

Saturday, November 26th, 2005

Look around you right now. Count the people in your home; your children, siblings, parents, pets, whom ever happen to be at your home at any given time. Add your neighbors on either side of where you are. Now imagine that you come home to find them all dead because a car bomb exploded in front of your home. How would you feel?

Now imagine that the only reason that someone was able to drive that car bomb up to your home and obliterate your family in the blink of an eye, is because some Governor from another state thought your mayor was a bastard, so they sent their National Guard in to depose of your mayor. Imagine that in the process they also fired all the police and let everyone out of jail. How would you feel?

How would you feel towards the Governor who unleashed this horror on your family? How would you feel towards the people who supported the actions that led to the obliteration of your family? How would you feel after you lost everyone and everything that was dear to you because people in a state on the other side of the nation poked their nose into your city’s business? How would you respond? How would you feel?

I’ll tell you how you would feel…you would feel like an Iraqi. Now perhaps you will better understand how and why Iraqis respond to the PNAC invasion of their nation, no matter what that response may be. Think about it

Chris Matthews Enjoys Story About American Soldiers Robbing Iraqis

Friday, November 25th, 2005

Tonight on MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews asked his guest, John Crawford (Iraq invasion veteran, author of “The Last Story I’ll Ever Tell”), what his best day was in Iraq. Crawford told Matthews of a night where he asked his commanding officer for permission to “confiscate” alcohol from the local Iraqis who were drinking by the Tigris River. Then Crawford and his pals got drunk on the “confiscated” alcohol.

Confiscated? They STOLE the alcohol from the locals with permission from their commander! How the hell is this not a crime? The alcohol is the private and paid for possession of the local Iraqis; what were the terms of the “confiscation?” This is outrageous! Matthews simply grinned and enjoyed Crawford’s little story about pillaging the locals, never stopping to ask him about the fact that they stole the Iraqi’s alcohol for their own personal use under the premise of it being a confiscation! This is unbelievable. I am so outraged that I want to punch Matthews in the face and I want to spit on anyone who condones the criminal Nazi-like invasion of Iraq. Is there a single journalist anywhere in this damn nation?

Watching Matthews grin while an American “hero” talked about stealing the possessions of Iraqi citizens made me sick beyond words. Even though I was already wide awake to the reality of the giant atrocity called the Iraq War, Mathew’s indifference to the crimes committed, no matter how small, against the Iraqi people, raised my outrage to a new level!

Enough is enough…we have to admit that what we did in Iraq is a crime equal to or worse than the crimes committed by the villains of history that Americans describe as evil. The invasion of Iraq was an evil act conduced by an evil administration using evil tactics for evil purposes. No two ways about it. There is NOTHING righteous about what we did. We are living through the most disgraceful period in American history. It is for this reason that Americans can not come to terms with reality. The US has become a despot nation led by evil, lying people. The only way to fix this problem is to first admit that it exists. No diluting it. No candy coating. We must stop pretending that the invasion of Iraq was anything but a crime against humanity, a crime against democracy, a crime against freedom and a crime against everything America stands for.

There is no apology big enough for what America has done to that nation. The entire Bush administration should face the harshest punishment for their crimes and the members of the media who continue to pretend that there is even an ounce of legitimacy to the invasion should be hauled off to Abu Ghraib for a taste of what the US has done to the people of Iraq.

I stand now, open and honest, and I declare at this moment to the world, America and Iraq would be better off if the cruel dictator Saddam Hussein were still in charge of Iraq and the reason I say this is because under that condition it would be Saddam, and only Saddam who would be guilty of crimes against humanity in Iraq. As it stands now America is no better than Saddam was at his worst, and for that reason we are not better off, we are worse off. Had we not invaded Iraq only Saddam could be blamed for the atrocities in Iraq. Now America shares in the guilt, shares in the shame and shares a place with the evil despots of history. It is for this reason we are not better off.

Chis Matthews and the rest of the corporate media, have you no shame?
