Bush's Visit With Scouts Put Off Again
On Monday, four men were electrocuted while putting up a huge tent at the Jamboree. Some Scouts witnessed the deaths of their Scout leaders as the large center pole came into contact with power lines. Youths screamed as the tent caught fire and the men burned.

"The War Is Over, and We Won."
What the establishment media covering Iraq have utterly failed to make clear today is this central reality: With the exception of periodic flare-ups in isolated corners, our struggle in Iraq as warfare is over. Egregious acts of terror will continue—in Iraq as in many other parts of the world. But there is now no chance whatever of the U.S. losing this critical guerilla war.

...U.S. military commanders are reporting escalating and more sophisticated insurgency attacks. Casualties exploded with more deadly bombings, giving meaning to Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld's projection of a 12-year war. The Congressional Budget Office estimated that the conflict's cost may exceed $700 billion.
The U.S. invasion of Iraq was illegal and unwarranted. Those who conspired to bring this war about must be identified and punished. Otherwise the United States will sink from the rule of law into the rule of men. A true patriot does not confuse government with country. A patriot's loyalty is to his country, and loyalty to country requires holding government accountable.

US general predicts pull-out from Iraq
George W.M.D. Bush, US president, has insisted the US will remain until Iraqi forces are capable of providing security for the whole country. But recent military and congressional assessments of the Iraqi army and police suggest they will not soon be capable of taking on such a role.

When senators return to Washington this September, they will be set to consider new legislation that would commit America to ending tyranny the world over.
George W. Bush said, "It is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world."

"We did not need to use a secret military tribunal, detain the defendant indefinitely as an enemy combatant or deny the defendant the right to counsel," he said Wednesday. "The message to the world from today's sentencing is that our courts have not abandoned our commitment to the ideals that set our nation apart."
He added that the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks have made Americans realize they are vulnerable to terrorism and that some believe "this threat renders our Constitution obsolete ... If that view is allowed to prevail, the terrorists will have won."

Soldier Who Refused Iraq Duty Faces Charge
"I went to war. I never ran from it," Benderman said Wednesday. "I experienced it and I realized it's not what I should be doing. In my opinion, it's not what anybody should be doing in the modern world."

"If you were president, would you really say to the nation, in the face of the chaos in Iraq, 'If our commanders on the ground say we need more troops, I will send them,' but they have not asked. It is not what the generals are asking you, Mr. President – it is what you are asking them, namely: 'What do you need to win?' Because it is clear we are not winning, and we are not winning because we have never made Iraq a secure place where normal politics could emerge."
"Let's all take a deep breath," he urged, "and repeat after me: Give war a chance."

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?
