Lebanon, Iran, Syria, Sudan: coldly premeditated neocon wars
FactsPlease | Before emotions and disinformation gain the upper hand, consider what General Wesley Clark wrote in 2003--that by late 2001, the Neocon-led Pentagon was planning a five-year campaign of wars against seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan. (And don't expect to hear about this from Lieberman, McCain, Pelosi, Feinstein, Howard Dean, or the Clintons.)

The Prime Minster
Murdock Todd Cote (Doc)
The prime minister of Iraq to day addressed a joint session of the House and Senate, if what he said was not spin or bull-s---. I wish them all the best if what he said is true, but we are the soldiers, and marines and the airmen are paying with their lives in battle with Muslim extremist, insurgents of every shape and description from Chechen to El Gaieda an every whack job who have killed Americans and allied soldiers……..so far we lost 2,550 and 250 allied soldiers and hundreds of allied citizens. On the other side they the Iraqi people have lost over fifty thousand four hundred military, civilians and IDF (Iraqi defense forces) and climbing. Oh I almost forgot we have had over eighteen thousand fifty wounded and maimed in this new Vietnam that George Walker Bush started in two thousand and three. September 11th was our wake up call to that America is no longer an innocent child through every hell America had been through she herself had never been attack now twice once on December 7th 1941 and now on September 11th two thousand and one but never been attacked from the out side since World War II….. List below our times we went to battle to defend ourselves from terrorist attacks over seas.
1. The revolutionary war, were we broke from our English rulers
2. Then came the War of 1812, when Britton tried in vain to retake her colonies
3. War With Mexico, the Long walk with general Winfield Scott
4. then four bloody years of Civil War 1861-65
5. The Spanish – American War
6. World War I
7. World War II, 1941-45---which was 23years after world War I and she had twice the casualties and we learned Mass Murder and so forth, casualties to match the civil war

17. September 11th 2001 America woke to a living hell
18. Operation Enduring Freedom, to chase down the Wild Wolves and their leader Osama Bin Laden
19. Gulf War II,
To this writer a war that should not have been started, I feel that the Iraqi people would have risen up and removed Hussein themselves. The only thing we gave them is a battle field of blood and fire and sectarian civil war, and insurgency and partisans who cross the border which is a spaghetti strainer to intelligence officer analyst. They said that he LRWS (long range weapons system) bio-chemical and working toward nuclear. The Intelligence system fabricated this evidence and nothing now can we do about it now.
The World in two thousand and six has turned to blood and fire what is next a new World War pray to god that no one uses tactical nuclear strike weapons. President Bush has lit a match to a brush I hope we can survive, violation of common sense, and the rule of law. Mr. Specter has called the President on the Carpet for using or in some cases abusing his executive powers. Its one thing to finish a fight it is another to start a fight, revoke civil rights abuse visa warrant and the Guantominao detention center and torture camps is third world countries.
In war, we are supposed to prescribe to rule of war, and treatment of combatants both uniformed and partisan. In the 1930’s we signed and ratified the article of War called the Geneva Convention. Mr. Bush says it does not apply to the detainees at Guantominao. This is very wrong and he knows it, as for Mr. Specters charges not signing or refusing to sign or veto is an act of treason against the people of the United States. There is no threat to violation of National Security or other acts. The other abominations are the patriot act which challenged the loyalty of good American regardless of race, religion, culture, orientation and yes sexual orientation. Not everyone in America is a traitor or a terrorist waiting to kill Americans. If I were Mr. Specter I would launch a major investigation of crimes and misdemeanors and I would advise the house to follow suit.
It is time for the house and senate to pay the bill of freedom and to many “the gift of freedom is ours by right, it’s not in some far away land but within all of us, and if what we do to day be our destiny then so be it, but let history remember that we as free men chose to make it so” this was from Arthur Castes a former Roman half Britton and roman and the first king of England in 467 AD THUS King Arthur
"Here is the price of freedom:
Your every drop of courage,
ounce of pain, pint of blood.
Paid in advance"

Appeasement 2006: Europe capitulates to American-Israeli aggression
by the editorial board | The international conference in Rome held Wednesday to address the crisis precipitated by the Israeli attack on Lebanon ended without a call for a ceasefire. According to numerous press accounts, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stood virtually alone in opposing any language in the conference statement suggesting that the Israeli onslaught, which has already caused close to 500 civilian deaths and destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure, should be ended any time soon.
According to the International Herald Tribune: “European and Arab governments, as well as Secretary General Kofi Annan of the United Nations and Javier Solana, the European Union foreign policy chief, also had pushed hard for an immediate cease-fire, but lost as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice dug in. She stuck to the position that agreement on an ‘enduring peace’ had to be in place before the parties were called to stop fighting.”

Rice leaves bloody footprints in Lebanon
by the editorial board | At some point in the future, when the ill-fated American drive for hegemony in the first decade of the twenty-first century is subjected to critical study, historians will discover ugly parallels between the tenure of Condoleezza Rice as American secretary of state under President Bush and that of Joachim Ribbentrop as German foreign minister under Chancellor Hitler. All the characteristics of the foreign policy of the Third Reich as it set the stage for World War—its depraved deceitfulness, cynicism, hypocrisy, recklessness, fascination with violence and utter contempt for human life—are to be observed 70 years later in the operations of the Bush administration, for whom Rice serves as chief foreign policy spokesman.
Through the Abyss
tora | Today 26, July 2006 everything has an unreasonable hue a certain irrational shimmer. I can taste the air and it is bitter with unreason and cruelty. I am able to detect the world passing all the horror, lies and weeping. I must be dreaming or I could be mad!

Open Letter to United for Peace and Justice
Gabriele Zamparini | But as tradition wants, you left the best for the end: "Help us continue to do this critical work: Make a donation to UFPJ today."
One of the most ugly faces of this bloody Empire is mirrored in the so-called "anti-war movement". Just to be clear, there is NO anti-war movement as such. The oppressed victims fight the real struggle for peace and justice wherever the Empire strikes. There is then an international, diverse galaxy of different, independent subjects, more or less organized, moved by solidarity, compassion and an inner drive for justice.

What links Lieberman, McCain, Gingrich, Perle, Kristol, and Hoffa?
NonNeocon | Senators Joe Lieberman and John McCain aren't merely "hawkish"; as "Honorary Co-Chairmen" of a pre-Iraq-war spin machine called The Committee for the Liberation of Iraq, they were leading cheerleaders for a war that now threatens to mushroom out of all control--unless we remove the Liebermans, McCains, and their fellow war cheerleaders from our U.S. Congress.
