Could Bush regime officials be prosecuted for 'war crimes' as a result of new measures used in the war of terror?
Tar and Feathers is too good for them!

U.S. used banned weapons in Fallujah – Health ministry
U.S. occupation forces used internationally prohibited substances, including mustard gas, nerve gas, and other burning chemicals in their attacks in the war-torn city.

Weapons of Mass Destruction Employed by US to Imolate Falluja: White Phosphorus is a Chemical Weapon
Some artillery guns fired white phosphorous rounds that create a screen of fire that cannot be extinguished with water. Insurgents reported being attacked with a substance that melted their skin, a reaction consistent with white phosphorous burns.

Sgrena Must Be Lying Because The U.S. Government Has Never Done Anything Corrupt
She wrote articles condemning torture at Abu Ghraib and more dangerous to the US, articles about the use of napalm in Fallujah.

On her latest assignment to Iraq, Aubenas was reporting on the fate of Iraqis driven out of their homes after the American assault on the city of Fallujah.

Napalm Raid on Falluja? - GIULIANA SGRENA
73 charred bodies -- women and children -- were found

Sgrena had the goods on them, the whole bloody litany of crimes perpetrated by the swaggering Texas psychopath and his Pentagon goons. Her interviews with Falluja's refugees put her in a position to spill the beans on Bush's murderous farce and splatter the headlines across Europe with the real picture of what is going on inside Iraq.
How far would Bush's polling numbers plummet if the American people discovered that the sadistic Rumsfeld was using banned weapons on civilians?

Giuliana Sgrena is a propagandist for the Communist daily rag Il Manifesto. Her writings do not reveal a bias, they reveal that Sgrena is an enemy of the United States of America and responsible for supporting terrorists and the murder of American soldiers and civilians.
She accuses the US of complicity in mass murder, the use of napalm on civilians, the targetting of journalists, and the torture of children.

U.S. Army soldiers in Iraq filmed themselves kicking a gravely wounded prisoner in the face and making the arm of a corpse appear to wave, then titled the effort "Ramadi Madness" after the city where it was made.
The Pentagon did not release the video, saying it believed it had been destroyed. Soldiers depicted in the new video would not face criminal charges, the Pentagon said.

Florida Paper Obtains, Airs 'Ramadi Madness' Video
"People see what they want to see," Shadle said. "They see abuse and want to cry foul. There was no abuse. I'd like to see these critics attacked every night, mortared every day. I'd like to see how they'd feel, how they'd react."

Clashes erupted between US Occupation troops and insurgents today in the troubled city of Ramadi, leaving at least two people dead, officials said.
The clashes in Ramadi, 115 kilometers west of Baghdad, lasted for more than an hour. City shops were closed and streets were deserted as US troops took up sniper positions on rooftops.

Fox News Analyst Bevelacqua calls Italian Journalist's Release 'Unfortunate'
"It's unfortunate that she was released. She didn't deserve the faith and honor that was given to her in the death of an Italian Intelligence officer. She is supporting the animals that took her hostage and she's using the death of a fellow countryman to help push her cause. It's disgusting."

NewsMax: Real Americans would NEVER believe that Italian bitch!
The claims of an Italian journalist who says U.S. troops shot her for no reason after she was released by terrorist kidnappers on Friday keep getting wilder and wilder.

New Republic Writer Calls For Anti-Bush Left-Wingers To Be Killed
"Maybe sometimes you just want to be on the side of whoever is more likely to take a bunker buster to Arundhati Roy."

Right-Wing Bloggers Fake Sgrena Car Photo
"Journalists writing for commie rags are not impervious to bullets if they disregard the American military in a war zone."

The Benefit of the Dumb
The Observer reports up to 400 rounds struck their car "from an armoured vehicle. Rather than calling immediately for assistance for the wounded Italians, the soldiers' first move was to confiscate their weapons and mobile phones and they were prevented from resuming contact with Rome for more than an hour." Sgrena's car, the US claims, is now "lost," and cannot be inspected.

Washington Post tries to dismiss Sgrena assassination attempt with the "it happens all the time" excuse
U.S. soldiers have fired on the occupants of many cars approaching their positions over the past year and a half, only to discover that the people they killed were not suicide bombers or attackers but Iraqi civilians. They did so while operating under rules of engagement that the military has classified and under a legal doctrine that grants U.S. troops immunity from civil liability for misjudgment.

U.S.: 'Absurd' to think troops targeted Italian
"I mean, just think about it. The guys are sitting there in their armoured vehicle, their fingers on the firing button, and this car drives up with a sign in the windows that says 'press'..."

General: U.S. had no sign of notice from Italians
Casey also said he was concerned by the fact that in addition to the killing of the Italian intelligence officer, a Bulgarian soldier slain last week in Iraq also may have been hit by U.S. gunfire.

Slain agent had informed US contacts in Baghdad: minister
Fini dismissed Washington's view that a lack of communication was responsible for the death of Calipari, who died in a hail of gunfire from US troops as he escorted a freed Italian hostage to Baghdad airport last Friday. Calipari had made "all the necessary contacts" with US authorities in Baghdad, the foreign minister said.

George W. M.D. Bush has promised a full investigation into the incident !

U.S. Expediting Probe of Italian's Death
"It's another unfortunate incident," Casey said, adding "we'll get to the bottom of it."

Pentagon Memo Blames Italians For Iraq Shooting
"This is war," said the memo as transcribed by the daily.

Pentagon Threatens to Kill Independent Reporters in Iraq
" I was told by a senior officer in the Pentagon, that if uplinks --that is the television signals out of... Baghdad, for example-- were detected by any planes ...electronic media... mediums, of the military above Baghdad... they'd be fired down on. Even if they were journalists ..' Who cares! ' said.. [inaudible] .."

Dead Messengers: How the U.S. Military Threatens Journalists
Mazen was filming outside Abu Ghraib prison on the outskirts of Baghdad. According to American claims at the time, rebels had staged a deadly mortar bomb or grenade attack on the prison the day before, and several journalists went to report the story. They identified themselves to U.S. troops guarding the perimeter of the prison and got permission to film from a nearby bridge. Mazen took the footage he wanted and got back into the car with his soundman and best friend Nael al-Shyouki. At that moment, a military convoy drove up. According to al-Shyouki, Mazen got out of the car with his camera and began filming. Al-Shyouki followed three or four meters behind. They were standing in the open in the middle of the road. Everything around seemed peaceful and matter of fact. The lead tank was at most 100 meters away, or as close as 50 meters, witnesses differ. Without warning, a soldier on the tank began firing. Mazen screamed, clutching his chest. His camera tilted forward, then fell to the ground. Mazen had filmed the story.

The Unfortunate Incident Protocol
While so many journalists have been killed by the U.S. military that some have wondered aloud (and lived to regret it) if media personnel might actually be targeted to dissuade independent reporting on Mr. Bush's wars, it's nonetheless unusual for a just-freed journalist, held hostage for a month, to be shot, along with her rescuer, by U.S. troops.

Earlier in the year, Newsweek reported that the Pentagon is considering using the "Salvador Option" in reference to a counter-insurgency strategy of the 1980s which saw the CIA-train local secret forces to go after leftists insurgents and their sympathisers in the Central American country and which led to tens of thousands of deaths.
"You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security."

Berlusconi has just seen what remained of his support to stay in Iraq evaporate.
What he WANTED was a dead and bloody hostage with the finger of blame pointed at the Iraqi "insurgents". What he GOT was a live but bloody hostage pointing the finger of blame at the US. And behind it all lurks the real story that the US did not want to get out, the use of banned chemical weapons against civilians in Fallujah.

I do not believe a thing Bush says or anything his military says. Ms. Sgrena makes clear in her statements that: 1. there were no warning shots; 2. the first shots at the car came from a tank; 3. the shots did not emanate from a checkpoint; 4. her car was not speeding; 5. the Italian embassy had told the Americans she would be coming out in a convoy. Yet, the American troops tried to kill her and he companions by firing over 400 rounds into her car on its way to the airport. She said she remembered upon being released, her captors told her, “Be careful of the Americans, they will try to kill you so that you cannot tell the truths you know about Fallujah.” How true, how prophetic this was...,150&values%5b0%5d=&values%5b1%5d=2288
We have come to a time when no one believes America's words to the world, and no intelligent American believes what Bush or what his minions say. Decent Americans, when abroad have to apologize for the evil Bush and his cronies are doing to the world--breaking international law, killing people at will, taking people into confinement without prima facie evidence and then holding them indefinitely. Not only immmoral and unethical deeds, but also illegal actions.

Army report: U.S. lost control in Iraq three months after invasion
"This overly simplistic conception of the war led to a cascading undercutting of the war effort: too few troops, too little coordination with civilian and governmental/non-governmental agencies and too little allotted time to achieve success."

Explain to me how you lose $9,000,000,000.00?
Bloggers are already doing the research, where are the real reporters? Why is there a media blackout on this story?

GOP pedophilia and S&M trysts: A long history going back to Bush 41 and Reagan
As with their fascist fellow travelers in Hitler's Germany, Franco's Spain, and "The Colonels'" Greece, many of the fascists associated with the Bush family have a predilection for sex with children and young recruits within the U.S. military.

Homosexuals Control Bush White House
Gannon claims intimate connections with not only Mr. Bush himself but also with top leaders in the Republican party and most especially acting as a connection with the very powerful and controlling American Christian militant organizations. He claims that several very famous Christian leaders are also homosexual and that these work together with others in high political circles!

Bush Plunging Into Syrian Swamp
If Lebanon cannot have free elections while under foreign military occupation, how, asks the rest of the world, does Iraq have free elections when it is under US military occupation?

Bush also linked Syria with an deadly suicide attack in Israel.
"The time has come for Syria and Iran to stop using murder as a tool of policy and to end all support for terrorism," the president said.

"Thousands" Answer Hezbollah Call in Beirut
"America is the source of terrorism"; "All our disasters are from America"; "No to American-Zionist intervention"

Pro-Syria protests to take to the streets of Beirut

US policy risking civil war in Lebanon and chaos in Syria
Every human being and every people has a right to freedom. Many of us have shed their blood for this aim. Democracy is an ideal that every people has to realize for itself. But when the banners of "freedom" and "democracy" are hoisted over a crusade by an avaricious and irresponsible superpower, the results can be catastrophic.

Pace of developments surprises even White House
Last week's popular uprising stemmed from the assassination of former prime minister Rafiq Hariri, widely blamed on Syria, which occupies Lebanon.

Who Killed Rafik Hariri?
"I think it fair to conclude that the United States of America remains bin Laden's only indispensable ally."

It's been 1,268 days since GWB said he'd catch UBL 'Dead or Alive!'

You want to end terrorism? End unjust military occupations. By all means have Syria conduct an orderly withdrawal from Lebanon if that is what the Lebanese public wants. But Israel needs to withdraw from the Golan Heights, which belong to Syria, as well. The Israeli military occupation of Gaza and the West Bank must be ended. The Russian scorched-earth policy in Chechnya needs to stop. Some just disposition of the Kashmir issue must be attained, and Indian enormities against Kashmiri Muslims must stop. The U.S. needs to conduct an orderly and complete withdrawal from Iraq. And when all these military occupations end, there will be some hope for a vast decrease in terrorism. People need a sense of autonomy and dignity, and occupation produces helplessness and humiliation. Humiliation is what causes terrorism.

The attitude of millions of Americans is exactly that of the German supporters of fascism in the 1930s and early 1940s. They were encouraged to think of themselves as the Master Race and there were whole nations whose populations could be treated as inferiors, and they took pride in doing just that. The present wave of hysterical intolerance in the US makes the McCarthy years of persecution look benign, because the idea has been planted by Bush and his people that US citizens are superior in every possible way. There can be no admission of frailty, and no acceptance of equality. International law and treaties are ignored or treated with contempt, and human dignity has become irrelevant. Hysterical ultra-nationalism is thriving and gathering pace.
The director of the slippery slope to totalitarianism has beckoned his citizens, and they are responding with enthusiasm to his encouragement. War crimes are being committed by US troops and spooks on an extraordinary scale all round the world, but the biggest war crime is taking place in Washington: it is the twisting of the minds of the American people.

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
