Iraq War

Women cry and Superman doesn't claim us anymore.

I helped make someone, a woman I never met, cry today and I was overwhelmed.

It was by happenstance that my wife asked me to help her put together a sign and some donation envelopes to collect money for a lady acquaintance of hers who suddenly lost her daughter, a mother of two young children in a terrible car accident. The grandmother has taken responsibility of the grand children but needed money to help bury her only daughter.

It was really a simple job which didn't take a lot of time to do, but I thoughtfully composed a nice message on a sign and designed the donation envelopes. It was understated and a sympathetic appeal.

My wife had arrived at work and just put the donation box and envelopes out when the grandmother walked in. She was so moved by my wife's thoughtfulness and the decorated poster and donation envelopes ...she cried.

Occasionally something like this happens which makes me grateful that I was able to help. It was nothing more than a few words arranged on a piece of paper; words which would not even warrant a second glance by most people, but to her the words hit very sensitive emotional chords of sorrow and gratefulness.

You could learn something from this junior, our nation does not want to hear the same words anymore they don't strike any chords. "We will stay the course" and "we will stand down when the Iraqi army stands up,"just doesn't turn any heads anymore.

Even the timely pre-election terror-suspects-arrests, for thinking about blowing up the Chicago tower and the New York tunnels, are trite. The country wants to hear something else, they want to know what are you doing differently to change your losing game on national and international issues.

Neither your foreign or national policies have worked out, and the nation is besieged with the aftermath of your actions and they have affected every major institution, like our churches. They have grown more bold and adamant with their actions.

The church, already deluged by multiple cases of child molestation, is not enough controversy I guess. Recently, an ax-wielding priest who was arrested and found guilty of a Sept. 30, 2000 attack on an abortion clinic was

Rev. John P. Earl was assigned to a top position at an Elgin Illinois church even after he was found guilty in 2001 of driving his car into the medical office, tearing down the doors, windows, and surveillance equipment with an ax.

This priest has the same kind of compassion you have. Your great idea of calling for medicare recipients to prove they are U.S. citizens prior to receiving healthcare benefits starting July 1, 2006, was like almost all your ideas,
poorly thought out. There are millions of U.S. citizens with severe disabilities, homeless vets with mental problems, and many nursing home residents as well as people in their 70s and 80s who lack birth certificates, particularly if they were born poor and in small towns or in the south where blacks were not allowed to give birth in hospitals.

Not to worry, a new law proposed in North Carolina will make that state a beacon of Christian values.

A tougher
sex crime bill actually lowers consent age. "The new law that allows prosecutors to seek a death penalty for repeat child sex offenders but it also lowers the age of consent in some cases." The new law allows for a "mistake of age" defense which It allows adults accused of having sex with those under 16 to tell the jury they thought the person was at least 16. Now that ...is progress for a red state.

Getting North Carolina's young children pregnant may offset the cost of killing the old, enfeebled and poor, via your medicare reform.

Meanwhile, casket makers are getting rich during your Iraq occupation. I support our troops but I have to ask how many Iraqi citizens have been murdered by deranged troops?

Since you have not been able to meet the military recruitment's "fodder" quota for your occupation in Iraq, you have had to, call the National Guard, use contractors wherever you can, extend service tours, raise the age for recruits, and even lower the test score standards. You must have also lowered psychiatric standards for military personnel.

The Southern Poverty Law Center which tracks right wing and racist organizations like skin heads and Aryan Nation, state significant numbers of these organizations have
infiltrated the U.S. military. Militarily trained racists like Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma bomber, seem to appreciate the weapons training and urban fighting experience they get.

The "numbers could run into the thousands, citing interviews with Defense Department investigators and reports and postings on racist Web sites and magazines."

According to a recent article "We've got Aryan Nations graffiti in Baghdad," the group quoted a Defense Department investigator as saying in a report to be posted today on its Web site,
www.splcenter.org. "That's a problem."

The Prime Minister in Iraq, Nuri al-Maliki said on Thursday that "US commanders should do a better job in preparing their soldiers." "There needs to be a plan to educate and train soldiers, and those who are brought to serve in Iraq shouldn't bear prejudices nor be reckless towards people's honour," al-Maliki said.

If he only knew what racist organizations like the Aryan Nation are capable of he would be really pissed. He may even demand a time table for removal of all American troops.

Did I say Happy Birthday junior? What are you now 60? Don't give your legacy a second thought, its a done deal, no matter what direction you look at we are toast. Even the new Superman movie refuses to acknowledge America's new approach to national and world issues.

Superman was faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Superman always fought for "Truth Justice and the American way." The new film makers of Superman Returns thought it was best to leave it out

"the Amrican way." Perhaps its because The American way as you have defined it means death, murder, destruction, pre-emptive war, greed, corruption, torture, human rights violator, and the world's major polluter.

You too have made women cry junior, thousands of them and men too from all around the world. And as long as you and Cheeny run the West Wing thousands more will join them.
I am sure I speak for much of the world when I say happy birthday you misguided arrogant shit.

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.
We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.
Due to the large volume of e-mail received, the White House is
unable to respond to every message, and therefore this response
is an autoreply.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

You can divert attention but you can't stop the bad news.

Mr. President,
While you keep your conservative base entertained with images of New York Times editors aiming Al Quida RPG's at the backs of unsuspecting American soldiers, the real world goes on, and your failures are getting harder to hide.

North Korea had their own firework display this weekend, despite your warnings and angry ultimatums they said "screw you!" Your fiery rhetoric from last week became terribly timid this week.

But, you and North Korea are not the only sources of recent outrage, take the Catholic church for instance.

A spokesman for the Vatican, Cardinal Alfonso López Trujillo, said in an interview with the Catholic weekly Famiglia Cristiana published Thursday that stem cell researchers should be
punished in the same way as women who have abortions and doctors who perform them; excommunicate them from the church.
No wonder people have doubts about religion with bozos like this guy in the Vatican. Doctors and scientists have claimed that embryonic stem cell research holds a significant promise to cure many terrible diseases, but the church chooses to opposes the practice because human embryos are used to harvest cells for the work.

Some of the left-over embryos after in vitro fertilization procedures are most often destroyed; but I guess that is better than using them to help combat some serious diseases. They sound a lot as though you do, but without the funny mispronunciations of 4th grade words.

Even the famous physicist Steven Hawkins was strongly discouraged and other scientists from trying to understand how the universe began. Pope Paul John Paul said, "It's OK to study the universe and where it began. But, we should not inquire into the beginning itself because that was the moment of creation and the work of God."
God must have a hell-of-a sense of humor when he supposedly tells both sides of a war like Iraq that he/she supports them equally.

Rummy has taken a page from your play book and has refused to respond to an information request back on March 7, on a soldier who says he suffered retaliation for reporting
abuses at Abu Ghraib prison, so a subpoena had to be issued.

Specialist Joseph Darby, the whistleblower, received a special John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, an award that recognizes acts of political courage on May 18, 2005. His family is in protective custody due to your friends like Limbaugh and Fox TV. His wife says that despite the multiple
death threats he has received "she believed her husband made the right choice exposing the torture and abuse. "Joe is the type of person to take what is going on around him and be like, 'How would I feel if that was my wife?'... He just could not live with himself knowing that that was happening and he did not do anything about it," she said.

It takes real men to bully a soldier's family. No offense junior but what your "base" lacks in courage it makes up in stupidity and stupidity is no stranger in your cabinet.

Dummy Rummy's Pentagon recently refused to turn over documents on the abuse probe at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison; so a subpoena was issued by the House Government Reform Committee. They also requested all their information on cases where family members of detainees were used in interrogations. Allegedly, children of some detainees were tortured in front of the detainees to "break " the prisoners. Sounds like Rummy will have to keep a personal lawyer strapped to his side for a while.


Back in Iraq, the body's keep rolling in. Bagdad's central morgue in Baghdad said it received 1,595 bodies in June, 16 percent more than in May. Instead of slowing down, the pace of killing increased since the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Iraq's most wanted insurgent leader. I guess your recent claims of winning the battle in Iraq is just another load of crap or more delusions from your drug-addled brain.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's very first attempt to quell the violence in Basra,
fell flat on its face according to the residents of the city. The 30-day state of emergency he proclaimed did nothing to bring down the number of Iraqis killed by sectarian violence.

The list of kidnapped Iraqi ministers gets longer as well. Gunmen seized the deputy minister, Raad al-Harith, and his bodyguards Tuesday in a Shiite neighborhood in northern Baghdad. Sunni legislator Taiseer Najah al-Mashhadani and seven of her bodyguards were kidnapped near Sadr City. Tuesday, gunmen pulled the deputy electricity minister from his car in a busy Baghdad street, kidnapping him and 19 bodyguards. The minister managed to escape later on when his kidnappers untied him.

You will have to work Rove over-time to create a sufficient number of diversionary stories, because American's discontent with you and your poorly-run war of occupation is not going away anytime soon.
