Bush raises option of using force against Iran

Six U.S. Occupation Troops killed in Iraq
Six U.S. soldiers died in roadside bombings and a shooting, the military said Sunday, as lawmakers tried to persuade Sunni Arabs to accept federalism provisions in the draft constitution that is due Monday. Three of the soldiers were killed in a roadside bombing late Friday near Tuz Khormato, 150 kilometers (95 miles) north of Baghdad, the military said. Another soldier was wounded in the blast and evacuated from the site. One soldier on a patrol was killed Sunday and three others wounded in a blast east of Rutbah, 400 kilometers (250 miles) west of Baghdad, the military said. In another roadside bombing, one soldier was killed Saturday and another wounded in western Baghdad. On Friday a U.S. commander said the number of roadside bomb attacks against American convoys in Iraq had doubled in the past year to about 30 per week.

The Most Honorable Thing a Patriot Could Do
Fight for your country – do not fight for someone else’s country. Do not die far off in some foreign land. Do not die for the greed of an emperor or king.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."
-- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

Tanker attacks planned, U.S. warns

Mother's protest gains momentum
"You would not believe it, there's a line of cars down a five-mile road and hundreds of them are going by," she says with a wide grin. "Ah, this is justcrazy. ... It's like an outpouring of love. I can't believe it."

Bush defends refusal to meet Cindy Sheehan "I think it’s important for me to go on with my life"
What an asshole.

The Bush Monarchy Cannot Face A Grieving Mom. Like Rosa Parks, Cindy Sheehan has refused to give up her seat. Only her seat isn't on a bus, it's in a tent.
This is the nerve center of the weakness of the Bush Monarchy. This inarticulate poseur cannot and does not have the courage to take criticism. That should explain why a country where once every square inch was a Free Speech Zone, now sports public cages where protesters can say what they want out of the sight of the president. This explains why he is so reluctant to face her. He does not want to appear as if she has forced his hand.
The Bushies can screen audiences so that no one who sees him has a three digit IQ. They can put all the metal tags they want on cars. They can pander to the Nascar rednecks and the Toby Keith/Ted Nugent Neanderthals (Ooops, they don't believe in Evolution). But they cannot stand their ground and answer in good faith or in good reason why we are in Iraq or what we have accomplished there. can you be PRO WAR?

Pro-WAR and anti-WAR demonstrators square off in Texas "She has no right to call Bush a murderer and to compare him to Saddam Hussein," Tom said. There is an interesting mechanism going on here. Tom is a coward. He stood there and let his son get sent off to fight and die in a war based on lies, a war fought not for America but for Israel and oil. Now his son is dead because he was a coward , and Tom is too cowardly to face up to that. So his son's death HAS to be right, and for his son's death to be right, the war has to be right, and Bush has to be right. Tom will go to his grave defending the war and Bush because if he ever, just for one moment, doubted the rightness of his son's death, Tom would have to face up to the fact that he let it happen.

Recruit ads urge parents to let kids go--into Army
To all the readers down in Crawford, please feel free to hand out the Army's toll-free recruitment phone number, (800) 872-2769. Memorize that. Every time one of Bush's ass-wipes starts talking about how right the war is tell them the number and challenge them to call right then and there. Offer them the use of your cell phone on the spot. Force them to back off in full view of the people around you. Humiliate them. The very best reply to anyone who talks about how great the war is is to ask them why they are still standing inside the US instead of volunteering to be in Iraq.

The only way to support our troops is to bring them home from this mess -- now.
The only recruiting story I know by heart, and can effectively comment on, is my son Casey's. I have heard too many similar stories, however. When he was recruited in May 2000, he was promised the moon to get him to join, and he ultimately got an early grave. He was promised a $20,000 signing bonus: he received $4500 and was told that he could use the rest for college. Casey wanted to be a deacon in the Catholic Church, so when he enlisted in the Army, he was promised he could be a Chaplain's Assistant (don't believe the Army Band stories, either). When he got to boot camp, he was told that his promised specialty wasn't open, and he had the choice of being a Humvee mechanic or a cook. His recruiter told him he could finish college while in the military; he could never even get approval to take one class. All of these broken promises mean nothing to me. One does, however. After Casey enlisted, he knew I was upset. He told me, "Mom, you don't have to worry, Sgt. (I forget his name) told me that since I scored so high on the ASVAB (military competency) test, I will never see combat, even if there is a war. I will only be in a support role."

Anti-war protestor Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq, is calling for Bush's "impeachment," and for Israel to get out of Palestine! "You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism," Sheehan declares. Sheehan, who is asking for a second meeting with President Bush, says defiantly: "My son was killed in 2004. I am not paying my taxes for 2004. You killed my son, George Bush, and I don't owe you a give my son back and I'll pay my taxes. Come after me (for back taxes) and we'll put this war on trial." "And now I'm going to use another 'I' word - impeachment - because we cannot have these people pardoned. They need to be tried on war crimes and go to jail."

Various Israeli conspiracy theories
"Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel. Am I stupid? No, I know full-well that my son, my family, this nation, and this world were betrayed by a George Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agenda after 9/11. We were told that we were attacked on 9/11 because the terrorists hate our freedoms and democracy . . . not for the real reason, because the Arab-Muslims who attacked us hate our middle-eastern foreign policy. That hasn't changed since America invaded and occupied Iraq . . . in fact it has gotten worse." -- Cindy Sheehan

Someone Tell the President the War Is Over
The endgame for American involvement in Iraq will be of a piece with the rest of this sorry history. "It makes no sense for the commander in chief to put out a timetable" for withdrawal, Mr. Bush declared on the same day that 14 of those Ohio troops were killed by a roadside bomb in Haditha. But even as he spoke, the war's actual commander, Gen. George Casey, had already publicly set a timetable for "some fairly substantial reductions" to start next spring. Officially this calendar is tied to the next round of Iraqi elections, but it's quite another election this administration has in mind. The priority now is less to save Jessica Lynch (or Iraqi democracy) than to save Rick Santorum and every other endangered Republican facing voters in November 2006.

Women had more rights under Saddam than they do under the US puppet regime.
"The United States government has poured millions of dollars into democracy training for Iraqi women, and more than 1,800 Americans have died for Iraqi freedom. But it may turn out to be for Iraqi male freedom.''

US writing new Iraq Constitution
American diplomats offered their own proposed draft in a dramatic attempt to clinch a deal and avert a political crisis that would embarrass George WMD Bush.

The chairman of the joint chiefs of staff warns that releasing photos and videotapes of detainee abuse at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison could have serious consequences.
General Richard Myers contends in recently unsealed court documents that the release of such information would aid al-Qaida recruitment, weaken governments in Iraq and Afghanistan and incite riots against U-S Occupation Troops.

A Sunday Herald investigation has discovered that coalition forces are holding more than 100 children in jails such as Abu Ghraib. Witnesses claim that the detainees – some as young as 10 – are also being subjected to rape and torture!
This is the America Bush's supporters agree with.

President Bush declared yesterday that "all options are on the table" -- including nuclear weapons -- to confront states that threaten to use weapons of mass destruction.
Referring to the U.S. nuclear capability, Bush said it is "a way to say to people who would harm America: 'Don't do it.' . . . that there is a consequence." Bush played down the remaining threat represented by Usama bin Laden, saying he does not know where the al Qaeda leader is and dismissing the man he once wanted "dead or alive" as "a person who has now been marginalized." He called Usama bin Laden "the ultimate parasite who found weakness, exploited it, and met his match. . . . I truly am not that concerned about him. I know he is on the run."

It's been 1,427 days since GWB said he'd catch UBL 'Dead or Alive!'

At the heart of the investigation are two people who work at The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a powerful pro-Israel lobby in Washington. The FBI investigation, has involved wiretaps, undercover surveillance and photography that document the passing of classified information from the mole, to the men at AIPAC, and on to the Israelis.
... the suspected spy, described as a trusted analyst at the Pentagon, turned over a presidential directive on U.S. policy toward Iran while it was, "in the draft phase when U.S. policy-makers were still debating the policy." This put the Israelis, according to one source, "inside the decision-making loop" so they could "try to influence the outcome."

Bush: U.S., Israel united in making sure Iran doesn't get nuclear weapons
George, you will write on the blackboard 1000 times, "Iran is building a power station, and has no more nuclear weapons than Iraq did."

"Thank You for Your Sympathy"?
After my office was destroyed on September 11, 2001, the people of Tehran, Iran left their offices and homes. They gathered in the streets holding candles to demonstrate condolence, sympathy and goodwill towards us, the people of New York, and indeed, all of America. I remember the film footage from Tehran at the time and will never forget. Now, the Bush and his zionist hoodlum puppet-masters plan to nuke them.

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM - George W.M.D. Bush said on Israeli television he could consider using force as a last resort to press Iran to give up its nuclear programme.
"As I say, all options are on the table."

Bush says 'all options' on table for Iraq
Bush also said his administration would "look at all options" on how to deal with Iraq, including "all technologies available to us and diplomacy and intelligence."

"'This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous.'
(Short pause)
"'And having said that, all options are on the table.'
"Even the White House stenographers felt obliged to note the result: '(Laughter).'"

The Office of Special Plans operated on its own, off the official payroll and away from Congressional oversight. According to several sources, it was the information given out by the Office of Special Plans that Dick Cheney "encouraged" the the CIA to adopt! So where does the trail lead from the OSP?
As it turns out, the OSP was getting their information from primarily two sources. The first was
Ahmed Chalabi, the bank embezzler who would be king and didn't care how it came about. The second, and more damning source, is the office of the Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon! As the Office of Special Plans poured out the lies that led to war, Israeli officers, up to the rank of General, were repeatedly escorted inside the Pentagon to the Office of Special Plans. At no time were they required to sign in!
Douglas Feith would then take this information, despite CIA doubts about the credibility of the claims, into
private briefings at the White House that bypassed CIA. In some cases, the CIA was unaware of Feith's private briefings until the OSP information became part of White House public policy.So, this is the trail of the lies that started a war, beginning at the White House, and via Dick Cheney moving upstream to the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans, under Wolfowitz and Feith, then from OSP to a parallel group operating out of Ariel Sharon's office in Israel.

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?
