Why don't the Americans just shoot Terry Schiavo in the head?

New Poll Might Make Press Re-think Massive Coverage of Terry Schiavo Case
Bush's overall approval was at 43 percent, down from 49 percent last month. 43 % huh?

Polls Show Drop for Bush's Job Approval
The Gallup poll found Bush losing support among men, self-described conservatives and churchgoers while the CBS poll found a drop among men and Republicans.

While Bush obsesses over Schiavo, Native Americans criticize his silence on bloody Minnesota school shooting
In the hours after the massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999, President Bill Clinton publicly expressed his condolences and followed up a few days later with a radio address in which he proposed new gun control measures and school safety projects.

And They Call Themselves Christians?
...the real tragedy, of course, is not the needless deaths and dismemberments of tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians (as well as 1,500+ American soldiers dead and thousands more horribly injured), but the decision to show mercy to a single American woman who has been comatose for 15 years.

Soldiers Speak Out

Bliar faces backbench backlash as pressure mounts to publish war advice
If the war was illegal, not only would British troops be potentially liable to face prosecution under an international war crimes tribunal but legal action could be taken against the Ministry of Defence by injured soldiers or relatives of troops killed in action.

Iraq Checkpoint Killings Unchecked
Killers must be held accountable, especially those in uniform.

Cuba to present nine counts against Washington in Human Rights Commission
Cuba is to counter the US by claiming that while there are wars, there are no conditions for the respect for human rights. The horrific medieval torture chambers at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay are reminders of the innate evil in Washington's foreign policy and of the callous disregard for human life shown by the Bush regime.

The United States committed “grave violations of human rights” against detainees in Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan and Iraq, the Foreign Affairs Committee of Britain’s parliament said on Friday.

War with the values of a revolution
Yes, I know war is hell and ugliness abounds in every corner. I also understand that in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, we are up against a vicious enemy, which, if it had the power, would do great harm to our country. You do not deal with such people with kid gloves. But killing prisoners of war, presumably in the act of torture, is an inexcusable outrage.

How the Department of Defense mishandled the disaster at Abu Ghraib.

U.S. forces thwart major escape in southern Iraq
Camp Bucca is almost twice the size of Abu Ghraib, which was the scene of last year's prisoner abuse scandal that has prompted widespread changes in the handling of detainees. There are 3,243 detainees at Abu Ghraib, and another 114 after a camp near the Baghdad airport, which includes Saddam Hussein and other top officials of his deposed government.

War's effect felt across Mideast
So now they have struck in Qatar. Nice, friendly, liberal Doha, with its massive U.S. air base and its spiky, argumentative al-Jazeera television, its modern shops and expatriate compounds and luxury hotels. Ever since al-Qaida urged its supporters to strike around the maritime Arab kingdoms of the Gulf, the princes and emirs have been waiting to find out who's first. The suicide bomber -- and the killing of a Brit -- gave them their answer.

The Missing WMD Report
A President doesn't have to worry about troubling answers if no one asks the questions.

WMD report expected to blast U.S. agencies
In contrast to the Sept. 11 commission, the WMD commission's work has been done largely behind closed doors, with only brief press releases about witnesses who appeared.

Washington, D.C., Nov. 3, 2000 — The fire and smoke from the downed passenger aircraft billows from the Pentagon courtyard. Defense Protective Services Police seal the crash sight. Army medics, nurses and doctors scramble to organize aid. An Arlington Fire Department chief dispatches his equipment to the affected areas.
The Pentagon was a model and the "plane crash" was a simulated one.

On 9/11, CIA Was Running Simulation of a Plane Crashing into a Building
In what the government describes as a bizarre coincidence, one U.S. intelligence agency was planning an exercise last Sept. 11 in which an errant aircraft crashed into one of its buildings. But the cause wasn't terrorism -- it was to be a simulated accident.

When bin Laden's group moves, says Hussain, they go in caravans and dress in women's clothing to avoid detection by satellite.
"Now I have also given orders that when every vehicle is checked, the women are asked to say something so that you can make out whether it is a male voice or a female voice," he says.

On the fast track to fascism
The news blackout of this juicy story is distressing. America's corporate and political elite control the news media. Freedom of information and speech are quickly becoming relics of a bygone republic. America is on the fast track to fascism.

Censor Alert
Congress considers controls for cable TV and the Internet

Opposition demonstrators pushed past riot police and seized the presidential headquarters Thursday in this Central Asian country, toppling the government in the third successful popular revolt in a former Soviet republic in 16 months. President Askar Akayev dropped from sight, and Russian news agencies reported that he had flown to neighboring Kazakhstan.
In the capital, Bishkek, the supreme court quickly nullified the results of disputed elections that had sparked the uprising.

Rice: Israel Expansion 'At Odds' With U.S.
Rice said the Israeli plan to add 3,500 housing units to the Maale Adumim settlement east of Jerusalem was "not really a satisfactory response."

U.S. Envoy Reiterates Settlements Support
Kurtzer's remarks Friday came after the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot quoted him as telling a group of Foreign Ministry cadets that there is no understanding between the United States and Israel over future control of settlement blocs. Kurtzer angrily denied the Yediot report, saying it had "no basis in fact."

One isn't supposed to say this, but many people believe that Israel now holds the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media in its hands. This is what is known as an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.
No decent American would think of reducing American Jews to the status of Palestinians in Israel. The idea is almost absurd. Yet Americans are taxed to subsidize the oppression of Palestinians, on the flimsy pretext that they are helping an "ally" in America's own self-interest to be hated and despised by the whole Muslim world.

Syria's ambassador to Washington said on Wednesday he hoped the United States and Israel would follow his country's example and withdraw from Iraq and Palestinian areas, just as Syria was leaving Lebanon.
"I hope this will inspire other countries in the Middle East to withdraw their occupations from Iraq and Palestine and from Syria itself," he said.

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?
