WELCOME TO HELL
Fake Left Anti-War Groups Out Themselves
Every member of Congress swore to uphold the Constitution. Lying to start a war is as bad as it gets- impeachment proceedings should begin immediately. If they don’t hold Bush Accountable, those members of Congress are guilty of treason, and they too, must be held accountable."Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience . . . therefore have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occurring."—Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, 1950. Since the obliging and compliant Congress will not stand up to the president as they are supposed to, we have a serious problem in this country. I would not want any weak-minded souls to think I do not respect the processes of government created by the likes of Thomas Jefferson and his friends before 1776. Read all they wrote and said.The Nuremberg statement is now international law and by extension, U.S. law. It is now the duty of all loyal American citizens that the fascist government controlling the United States and the US military can no longer be allowed to exist; it must be replaced. The world, and international law, holds all Americans accountable, and the price to pay is dear.The recent release of the Downing Street Memo provides new and compelling evidence that the President of the United States has been actively engaged in a conspiracy to deceive and mislead the United States Congress and the American people about the basis for going to war against Iraq. If true, such conduct constitutes a High Crime under Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution: “The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”Broward pressures Art Guild to remove graphic painting of Bush from 'Controversy' exhibitThe piece in question is a painting depicting President Bush being sodomized.
Artist Alfred Phillips said images of an oil barrel and a man wearing a Muslim headdress in the work are part of a political statement about the United States being abused by oil companies.Michael Friedman, the artist who complained to the county, said the painting is offensive and tasteless."Something snapped inside," he said. Friedman himself entered a piece depicting Pope Benedict XVI with several swastikas in the background.
"Sodomy in a public forum is not, from my perspective, considered art," he said. "I think somebody has to draw the line somewhere. I like political satire. However, that type of image ... I don't think is artistic."Drama students learn tough lesson: Dubya's no joke
All went well until a high school senior and Bush supporter wrote a letter of complaint to the administration last week for the way the president was depicted, according to teachers and students. The complaining student added that Bush was also made to look "like an Israeli."
"We had one student who was very upset," Lee said. "So much turmoil within himself, he was distraught.What Bush is saying when he's talking
"The Oval Office is the kind of place where people ... walk in and get overwhelmed in the atmosphere, and they say, 'Man, you're looking pretty.' "Bush: Base Closings Needed to Fight War of Terror"Supporting these facilities wastes billions of taxpayer dollars _ money that can be better spent on giving you the tools to fight terrorists and confront 21st-century threats."George Bush said that 20 years from now, historians will look back on the Iraq war as "America's golden moment."
"We are taking the fight to the enemy abroad so we do not have to face them here at home!"
"In this era of surprise, we cannot know for certain who might attack us or where or when," Bush said. "But we can anticipate how we might be attacked and we can transform our capabilities to defend our citizens and deliver justice to our enemies."Bush cites Saddam's 'arsenal of terror'

Ever stop to think that if Saddam had really been the evil tyrant we were told he was that the Iraqi people could have treated him exactly the way they are treating the US occupation?
Frankly, I have had my doubts that the stories of mean ol' Saddam were any more accurate than the stories of WMDs ever since I saw that video of Saddam getting up on top of a car to wave at a spontaneous crowd with guns clearly in the hands of the people. No Lexan, no body searches to get near the leader, no barbed wire, no "free speech zones". The Iraqis waved at Saddam and he waved back, in the open, an easy rifle shot from any building in the area.
Contrast that with the way in which US leaders hide behind bullet-proof everything when they go out in public. Contrast that with the way the Iraqi people have reacted to the US occupation.US puppet government announces state of siege in Baghdad
Dulaimi, describing classic techniques of state terror, intimidation and repression long used in counterinsurgency operations against hostile populations, said the city would be divided into sections, each occupied by a specific police-military unit, and added, “We will also impose a stringent blockade around Baghdad, like a bracelet around an arm, God willing... You will witness unprecedented, strict security measures.”Militants sneer at latest security measures in Iraq

It has been battling a two-year campaign of violence by al Qaeda supporters.Pakistan - A suicide bomber struck Friday at a Muslim shrine packed with Shiite worshippers and close to the U.S. Embassy, killing at least 20 people and wounding dozens.
After the blast, hundreds of Shiite pilgrims, beating their chests in mourning, clashed with baton-wielding police, who charged the crowd to clear the way for ambulances. Some of the Shiite protesters chanted, "Down with America!"Muslims protest U.S. from Asia to Mideast
No injuries were reported in Friday's demonstrations, with police simply watching in most places. In India's Kashmir region, however, police fired tear gas and used batons to disperse hundreds of Muslims gathered outside a mosque in the capital of Srinagar. Women in black veils marched through Kashmir, where schools and businesses were closed as part of the protest, and set American flags and copies of the U.S. Constitution ablaze. "The defilement of our holy book is outrageous because we consider it to be the word of God," thundered Asiya Andrabi, head of the women's group Daughters of the Community, through her veil. "Guantanamo Bay is a cage. It is not a prison." More than 15,000 people took to the streets of Pakistan's largest cities. A demonstration in the capital of Islamabad began in a tense atmosphere, hours after a bomb at a Muslim shrine killed more than 15 people at an annual celebration. The motive for the suspected suicide bombing was not immediately clear. "We condemn sacrilege of the Quran by U.S. extremists," read one banner draped across a bus while protest leaders chanted into loudspeakers during a rally of at least 2,000 in Islamabad. In Pakistan's southwestern city of Quetta, 5,000 demonstrators chanted slogans against the United States and Britain. Another 5,000 gathered in the southern city of Karachi, demanding the expulsion of the U.S. ambassador. Protests also were held in Lahore, near the Indian border. The rallies were organized by a hard-line religious coalition, Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or United Action Forum -- a vocal opponent of Pakistan President Gen. Pervez Musharraf. About 12,000 people, many of them supporters of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group, gathered in Alexandria, Egypt, filling a three-story building and spilling into surrounding streets, listening to preachers who demanded an apology from U.S. officials. The neighborhood was ringed by police, who arrested 12 of the demonstrator's organizers. About 1,000 people -- mostly lawyers -- gathered in downtown Cairo and were surrounded by double that number of riot police. A similar number gathered in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, carrying black banners and burning American and Israeli flags. "We will cut off the feet that desecrated the Quran!" the crowd yelled. Nearly 1,000 people demonstrated in the predominantly Shiite southern Iraqi city of Basra to protest the alleged desecrations. They also condemned the alleged desecration of a Quran in Ramadi two weeks ago by "Americans and Jews."
Two straw dolls -- of President Bush and a rabbi -- were beaten with shoes and slippers, and American, British and Israeli flags were burned. Thousands gathered outside the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum, Sudan, and demanded an investigation into all actions against Muslims held in Guantanamo. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, protesters shouted, "Go to hell, America!"
and waved placards reading "Long Live Islam,"
as they burned U.S. and Israeli flags outside the U.S. Embassy. Riot police guarded the compound, and the crowd dispersed peacefully nearly an hour later after handing a note to embassy officials. The protest was the second of its kind in as many weeks. About 50 people chanted anti-American slogans and threw tomatoes at a portrait of Bush in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta. The protesters were outnumbered 4-1 by police officers in riot gear and left after about an hour.In Bangladesh's capital of Dhaka, about 5,000 people rallied after Friday prayers, spitting on U.S. flags, kicking them and then burning them. They shouted "Death to America!" and "Destroy America!" Many carried copies of the Quran, held over their heads. The protesters used shoes to beat a Bush dummy and burned an effigy of the president, chanting "Bush -- the killer!"
Riot police watched the demonstrators, who dispersed peacefully. Anti-U.S. sentiment has been running high in Muslim countries since the Newsweek report. The Bush administration blamed it for demonstrations this month in Afghanistan, where more than a dozen people died and scores were injured.Muslims denounce 'US Koran abuse'
The demonstrations came after the US military admitted some of its guards had mishandled the Muslim holy book. But the camp commander said no credible evidence had been found that the Koran had been flushed down a toilet.US: FBI records detail Quran abuse by US guards
Disclosure follows a row over a similar claim made in retracted Newsweek article. The White House said the report had done "lasting damage" to the US image in the Muslim world.So the newly declassified FBI documents showing allegations of U.S. guards abusing the Koran have made a huge splash in the U.S. Corporate State media, right?

In an indication of the Pentagon's eagerness to discredit the allegation, Hood briefed reporters on the interim findings of his investigation even though the Pentagon's standard practice is to withhold comment on the progress of any official investigation until it has been completed.Just Shut It Down
I am talking about the war-of-terrorism Concentration Camp at Guantánamo Bay. Just shut it down and then plow it under. It has become worse than an embarrassment. I am convinced that more Americans are dying and will die if we keep the Gitmo prison open than if we shut it down. So, please, Mr. President, just shut it down.In U.S. Report, Brutal Details of 2 Afghan Inmates' Deaths
The prisoner, a slight, 22-year-old taxi driver known only as Dilawar, was hauled from his cell at the detention center in Bagram, Afghanistan, at around 2 a.m. to answer questions about a rocket attack on an American base. When he arrived in the interrogation room, an interpreter who was present said, his legs were bouncing uncontrollably in the plastic chair and his hands were numb. He had been chained by the wrists to the top of his cell for much of the previous four days. Most of the interrogators had believed Mr. Dilawar was an innocent man who simply drove his taxi past the American base at the wrong time.Pentagon Analyst In Israel Spy Case Is Called a 'Patriot'
By March 2003, the Bush administration had decided to work with Iranian-sponsored opposition groups to build an interim government in Baghdad. Indeed, the recently elected prime minister, Ibrahim Jafari, was initially a leader of an Iranian-supported party, Dawa, and was included in the first Iraqi Governing Council. At the same time, American envoys were holding intensive negotiations about Iraq with the Iranians under the auspices of a U.N. multicountry group designed to coordinate Afghanistan policy.
These developments, according to Mr. Franklin's former colleagues and other government officials, worried the Pentagon analyst, who, in turn, attempted to reverse what he saw as a disastrous policy decision. Mr. Franklin had, in his work on Iran at the Pentagon in late 2001, identified what one source described as "Iranian hunter-killer teams" in Afghanistan that were threatening American Special Forces. By the spring of 2003, he believed American forces in Iraq would be under a similar threat from units of Iran's Revolutionary Guard and that this information had to get to the White House.
