Six Female Marines Die in Iraq Today

Repost by jamie | Editor’s note: Their “goal†my friend is to end an illegal, unjust, and immoral occupation. Their methods may not be nice. Under international law, they do not have to be. They have the right, indeed the duty, to resist. It is interesting that you suggest it somehow outside propriety to attack occupiers who happen to be female. I am sorry for the loss of any life in this war. But war is, as they say, hell. Blame Bush, the neocons, and other ruling elites that allowed it to happen. The only just cause here is that of the victims, the people of Iraq who are the resistance. Please spread widely. more...  1 Comments

Analysis and Text of the Downing Street Memo

Repost by jamie | "In fact, one can argue that he and other officials, including Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condaleeza Rice, and Tony Blair, lied to the UN, to Congress, to the British Parliament, and to the public. These are impeachable offences. Not only that, but this would mean that tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis, and over 1,700 US and Coalition troops, have died as a result of the invasion and occupation propped up and justified by deception, lies, and political games.†more...  0 Comments
