Bush has repeatedly exploited Christian beliefs to sell his wars, but when it comes right down to it, his supporters do not hesitate to trash the symbols of the Christian faith (and several American flags) as easily as they trash the symbols of Islamic faith. This should prove that Bush and his supporters honor the memory of the fallen only when it serves their own purposes.
Some of President Bush's neighbors asked county leaders Tuesday to prevent large gatherings near the Crawford ranch like the ongoing anti-war protest led by a mother of a soldier who died in Iraq.
If the ordinance passes, demonstrators probably would have to stay in Crawford, which is 7 miles away.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

It was ten days ago when Mrs Sheehan "spontaneously" decided to march up to the President's gate for some answers. "I want to know what is this noble cause he says my son died for and why he doesn't send his own daughters out there to fight for it," she said.
OCCUPIED BAGHDAD — "Al Qaida" has deployed bombs laced with toxins in an attempt to increase the lethality of attacks in Iraq, coalition military sources said.
Meanwhile, U.S. military sources said Iraq has killed a senior aide of Al Qaida network leader Abu Mussib Al Zarqawi.
The Washington Post is withdrawing its offer of free advertising for an organized event by the Defense Department to memorialize the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, the newspaper announced.;_ylt=AikF6vIVt2tXS1530bF0_OiWwvIE;_ylu=X3oDMTA3MXN1bHE0BHNlYwN0bWE
The Post backed out of the agreement after critics said the event, scheduled to take place four years after the attacks that hit New York and Washington and resulted in the crash of a commercial airliner over western Pennsylvania, would have a pro-war slant and that support of the event by the newspaper would compromise the Post's journalistic integrity.

Iran: Western hysteria
The demonology surrounding Teheran began when Washington's hated stooge, the Shah, fell from power.
Historically, the United States has repeated this same mistake over and over. One example is the US support for Batista, who became President of Cuba through a rigged election aided by the CIA. After years of driving the Cuban people into the ground for the benefit of US interests such as United Fruit, pepsiCo, CIA, and the Mafia, the Cubans revolted and put Castro into power. Castro actually approached the US about normal relations, was rebuffed, and because of the US blockade was eventually forced to turn to the USSR for alignment and support. There followed the Bay of Pigs, which triggered the missile crisis.
Then there was Chile. The CIA arranged a coup that removed the democratically elected Allende from power and replaced him with the dictator Pinochet. CIA torture squads helped keep him in power. Eventually the Chilians decided they had had enough and Pinochet was removed.
Then there was Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines, another US-backed dictator, who eventually trigged a revolution in his country.
The same thing happened in Iran. The US-backed Shah crushed his people down to benefit US interests until a revolution was triggered, which brought Khomeini to power.
Since the Korean war, the US has engaged in over 30 military interventions, always with the claim that we are bringing Democracy to the invaded country. But in point of fact not one Democracy has ever resulted from such invasions. The US produces a dictatorship favorable to US interests, which inevitably leads to a revolution.
Insanity is defined as repeating the same action over and over but expecting a different result.

Christopher Walken 2008
"Our great country is in a terrible downward spiral. We're outsourcing jobs, bankrupting social security, and losing lives at war. We need to focus on what's important-- paying attention to our children, our citizens, our future. We need to think about improving our failing educational system, making better use of our resources, and helping to promote a stable, safe, and tolerant global society. It's time to be smart about our politics. It's time to get America back on track."

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?
