As we listen to the worm Bush Republicans call for the in Denial worm Gonzales to step down!

It was really hard to see Bush say how much he cared about the wounded Veterans at Walter Reed knowing those guys were injured band mistreated because of him. The mess in Iraq and at Walter Reed is per his misdirection. It really hurt listening to the White House spokeswoman say how much he liked passing out the purple hearts knowing the history behind why they have them.
Then we had to listen to the chief idiot lie about his insistence on vetoing the $100-billion-plus war-spending bills that the House and Senate had approved. I first found it offensive when he joked about the $75 million in earmarks and said that was one of his prime reasons for vetoing the bill, knowing they were left over from his Republican Congress. This son of a Beehive is totally shameless. He's hiding behind our troops and just can't stop lying to get his way. I am disgusted!
We want timeliness and accountability not continuing wiseassing. He continues to stupidly blame everything on the Democrats when anyone with half a brain knows he is a screw up and responsible for the entire mess.
He said the Democrats would raise taxes by a total of nearly $400 billion over the next five years. He said it would be the largest tax increase in History. Can anyone tell me what he is talking about. He said amongst other things that it would raise your taxes $500 for every child. I doubt that but if true it will be necessary to offset his world record debt and those poor kids might as well start paying for Bush's hell now before it chokes them.
I am disgusted. If you can listen to his lying biased political rhetoric here it is.
Anyway I liked what retired Marine General Andy Home said. "In short, the Commander-in-Chief has failed to properly lead the troops, and previous Congresses didn't ask the tough questions, or demand accountability. The result is the mess we are in today. me, I say Amen to that!
"This week, the majority in Congress has taken the lead in providing for our troops. Supplemental spending bills passed by the House and Senate provide a much-needed change in the Presidents Iraq policy. This legislation also provides billions for our troops, giving them the proper protection and training they need to survive in Iraq, as well as funds to fix Walter Reed, provide health care to our troops and veterans, and research and heal traumatic brain injuries that many troops suffered.
I have to agree with him and our Current Congress! It is about time someone attempt to hold Bush accountable though I am afraid the lying worm, will get away with his lying Bull once again. If you want to see the General's apt comments they are also in the above link.
I want to mention a bit about Gonzo! First as you know, he said he had nothing to do with the Attorney firings. Then when he was caught lying he said he didn't choose which attorney's to fire. Knowing it is pointing to what we all knew in the first place and that is that he did and most likely with direction right from the top. We now have A. Republican congressman today urging Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to resign, citing what he said were Gonzales' contradictory statements about his role in the firing of eight federal prosecutors. It is about time and he will eventually be gone.
"I trusted him before, but I can't now," said five-term Rep. Lee Terry, whose district includes metropolitan Omaha.
As you know, Gonzales credibility took a blow this past week during testimony by his former chief of staff, Kyle Sampson, before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sampson, who resigned March 12, said the attorney general was regularly briefed about plans to fire the prosecutors and was involved with discussions about "this process of asking certain U.S. attorneys to resign."
We have put up with this two faced underhanded, lying coming right from the top much too long. It is long overdue to get rid of Bush's enabler and clamp down on Bush. His childish cutest rhetoric must be defeated. There cannot be so many believing idiots in America left for him to get away with his lying childish games!

Iran: Britain Attacked their Embassy in Basra, Just latest attempt to get Britain to Alienate the U.S. in Iraq!

Iran saying Britain attacked their Embassy in Basra just latest attempt to get Britain to Alienate the U.S. in Iraq, It all makes sense now!
Knowing that over a year ago Iran was demanding that Britain get out of Basra.
An awful lot in regards to recent events just made instant sense to me and it is not good for Britain the U.S. or for Iran knowing the west will not bow to this but will eventually react!
Anyway, we have been hearing numerous conflicting stories as to who is trying to snow who in regard to the 15 captured British marines. I happen to believe that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard are the instigators but I couldn't figure out why! After hearing these conflicting reports in regard to Iran's Embassy in Basra it all started making sense and why go after the British!
I was first sent this report from someone who believes Britain and the U.S. are monsters. and didn't believe it but didn't understand what was going on. British forces were surrounding the Iranian consulate in Basra, Al Arabiya reported on Thursday, according to an Israel Radio citation. The forces were trying to exert pressure on Iran to release the 15 British soldiers being held captive.
Maybe I am biased and I do believe Blaire has made a mistake blindly following Bush but I refused to believe they were this stupid. The following report made the truth clear to me.
At a critical period in the crisis over Iran's seizure of 15 British sailors and marines, the Iranian consul in Basra charged that British soldiers on Thursday had surrounded his office in the southern city and fired shots into the air. Britain denied the allegation.
The Ministry of Defense in London said the shooting was an exchange of gunfire after British troops on a foot patrol near the Iranian consulate were ambushed. But Iranian Consul-General Mohammed Ridha Nasir Baghban said British forces had engaged in a "provocative act" that "could worsen the situation of the British sailors."
"British forces should rely on wisdom and not react because of the British forces' detention. This reflects negatively on bilateral relations," Baghban told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Baghban claimed British forces surrounded the consulate about 10:00 a.m. and fired randomly into the air.
It dawned on me after watching the exchange between Britain and Iran over the last week that the ultimate goal here is to keep those British troops in the hopes of getting Britain to alienate the U.S. and leave Iraq thereby leaving the U.S. to fight the mess in Iraq on its own but you know it will fail.
I understand there are many that say Iran does not want to fight the West but I firmly believe the Revolutionary Guard does and they are the ones behind the recent events in the Gulf.
There will be no deal here and neither side will relent. Nor do I think Britain should because it would only embolden Iran. This will only serve to get this war with Iran going!

Bush's Military: No Gays, No Tattoos, No Gang Bangers, No undereducated, No excessive Indebtedness!

No Gays, No tattoos, No Gang Bangers, No under educated, no excessive Indebtedness, what's it take to Kill and Die for Bush Today? Whose left?
I couldn't find my story but I am sure most of you remember the issue of military indebtedness and that soldiers with this problem would not be allowed to fight and die in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Now we have no tattoos added to the growing list of taboos! Former U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Shiloh Richardson proudly wears a military tattoo on his calf, but a new policy means others behind him won't have the option of openly displaying body art while wearing the uniform reserved for the few and the proud.
"It's a way of distinguishing yourself when you're not in uniform," Richardson explained. "Most of the time if I run across a veteran, he sees my tattoo and shakes my hand, and says 'Semper Fi."

Marine Corps Commandant James Conway announced the policy change last week, aimed at banning tattoos visible beneath the elbow or knee, or vulgar images elsewhere. Officials say such body art is harmful to the Corps' spit-and-polish image.

"Some Marines have taken the liberty of tattooing themselves to a point that is contrary to our professional demeanor and the high standards America has come to expect from us," Conway told The Associated Press. "I believe tattoos of an excessive nature do not represent our traditional values."
Two weeks ago General Pace said he opposes ending the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, because it would signal that the Pentagon condones "immoral" behavior.

`I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts, Pace told the Chicago Tribune editorial board. "I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way.'' Remember those words: "in any way."

 Back in august of 2005 our dropping numbers in the military especially the academies was a big issue. There was a big issue in the air Force Academy particularly where cadets were being pressured to become Christian Fundamentalists. Efforts and methods of persuasion were not subtle either. This was not just occurring at the air force Academy but here and there throughout the military as a whole. In light of this Administration, their desires, their techniques, it seems a normal course to have this spread to the military.

With the larger role of Fundamentalists purposely allowed in our Government and in the operation of the country. With the increasingly public intervention of some fundamentalist leaders in our politics in an effort to sway the public you have to think? As we all experience, the plight of the lower classes are worsened almost daily. With the Presidents increased intervention in the middle East and the increased Christian influence in the Government and the military.

It looks more and more like we are being groomed to become a Christian country with a Christian Crusader army. Knowing that God told him to straighten out the Middle Easts problems, and in light of the Presidents ridiculous insistence on keeping an all volunteer fighting force. With the increased use domestically and around the world of our military, the increasing threatening of Iran with possible military action, you have to wonder:

With the threat of war with Iran very real and apparently impending, with increasing restrictions on a very stressed military, and now No Gays, No tattoos, No Gang Bangers, No under educated, no excessive Indebtedness, what's it take to Kill and Die for Bush Today? just what in reality is the chief idiot doing to our military besides over using and abusing them while imposing fundamentalist asinine restrictions on those willing to serve? This tattoo thing is a little too much for me, I mean come on!

Home ownership in Crisis, Home shares plunge, stock Indexes drop after Bernanke Comments!

Home ownership in Crisis, Home shares Plunge, Stock Indexes drop after Bernanke Comments as Massachusetts puts on Brakes!
About 2.4 million holders of subprime mortgage loans made between 1998 and 2006 will lose their properties to foreclosure, according to a report from the Center for Responsible Lending, a nonprofit policy and advocacy organization for home owners. Worse, that will result in a net home ownership loss of one million households. CRL's analysis Rebutted the mortgage industry's claims that the increase in subprime loans has opened up home ownership for millions of low income buyers. Instead, CRL contends, relatively little subprime lending is used for first-time home buying.
The report criticized both lax underwriting - noting in particular a disregard for the ability of borrower's ability to repay loans - as well as dangerous loan vehicles, such as "exploding ARMs," which have low rates for the first two or three years before resetting at much higher rates.
This sounds pretty dire and many of us that watched the predatory lending practices expected but with The news of the FBI investigating possible fraud in Beazer Homes' mortgage lending practices comes amid woes in the homebuilding sector and a recent meltdown in the subprime mortgage sector that has seen several lenders seek bankruptcy protection. Weak demand for new homes, sales at steep discounts and the need for inventory write-downs have taken a toll on Beazer Homes' results. this is of particular interest because Beazer is said to be the largest home mortgage lender in the Nation.
Beazer is suffering hefty losses because of the housing downturn and their shares are dropping dramatically. I am sorry but I do not feel for them. As a result of their predatory lending practices many people were taken advantage of and the crumbling house of cards is spreading throughout the stock market as you would expect.
U.S. stocks fell sharply today after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke cast doubt about a recovery in housing and said uncertainties surrounding the economic outlook had increased.
Shares of bellwether companies, including plane maker Boeing Co. and diversified manufacturer General Electric Co. were among the top decliners, along with shares of banks and retailers.
In testimony before the congressional Joint Economic Committee, Bernanke expressed concern about the slowdown in the U.S. housing market, which he said had been the principal source of a slowdown in economic growth that began last spring.
The economic slowdown is not due to the housing Market as Bernanke says but rather the reality of Bush fiasco's catching up with people. With that said I believe Massachusetts is taking the lead in holding these predatory lenders accountable and seeking to ease home owners pain by making it more difficult for lenders to foreclose and seeking creative ways to help affected borrowers pay their mortgages. Massachusetts has been particularly hard it and appears to he heading towards a housing crisis that they are trying to head off.
Just how badly are these predatory lenders in Bush's great economy going to hurt the average American? Just one family in ruin is too much for me and it hurts! But just how far is this going to go and how bad is it going to hurt the country?

British Marines still incommunicado in Iran, Blair promises a different phase as U.S. shows force in Gulf!

British Marines still incommunicado in Iran, Blair promises a different phase as U.S. shows massive force in Gulf! Does that help?
Looking at the recent confrontations with Iran on Iraq's land and water border with Iran and evaluating both instances I have come to the conclusion that Iran's Revolutionary Guard whose business it is to protect and defend The Islamic Revolution is instigating conflict with Britain and the U.S.
I understand that the captured Marine's will now be allowed contact with Embassy Officials but their location is not yet known and nothing has been resolved yet. I also understand that Tony Blair has vowed that Britain is prepared to move to a "different phase" if negotiations fail to free those held captive.
Asked what that meant, Blair said: "Well, we will just have to see, but what they should understand is that we cannot have a situation where our servicemen and women are seized when actually they are in Iraqi waters under a U.N. mandate, patrolling perfectly rightly and in accordance with that mandate, and then effectively captured and taken to Iran." British authorities we are told are confident that they have evidence to prove their insistence that the Royal Navy personnel never left Iraqi waters," and His office did say though that officials may have to make public evidence proving the Britons were seized in Iraqi -- not Iranian -- waters, if there is no swift release of the sailors.
I just don't get it! If the Brits have evidence that proves the British were captured while in Iraqi or international waters then why are they not putting it out in the public? they say they want to resolve this quickly but seem to be allowing it to drag on. It is no coincidence that this has now gone on for four days and meanwhile the U.S. is putting a massive show of maritime and air force in the Gulf. The U.S. Navy on Tuesday began its largest demonstration of force in the Gulf since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, deploying two aircraft carriers and conducting simulated aerial attacks.
The maneuvers, involving 15 U.S. warships and more than a hundred planes, were certain to increase tension with Iran, which has frequently condemned the U.S. military presence off its coastline. According to navy Lieutenant John Perkins these maneuvers are only to demonstrate our flexibility and our capability to respond to threats to Maritime security and that we can keep the maritime environment safe and the vital link to the global economy open.
This supposedly was planned before the Revolutionary Guard incident but the Lieutenant declined to say when. So what does that tell you? We now have 2 carrier strike groups in the Gulf. Each carrier hosts an air wing of F/A-18 Hornet and Superhornet fighter-bombers, EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft, S-3 Viking antisubmarine and refuelers, and E-2C Hawkeye airborne command-and-control craft.
Also taking part were guided-missile destroyers USS Anzio, USS Ramage, USS O'Kane, USS Mason, USS Preble and USS Nitze; and minesweepers USS Scout, USS Gladiator and USS Ardent. Plus A French naval strike group, led by the aircraft carrier Charles DE Gaulle, was operating simultaneously just outside the Gulf but not participating in the exercise.
With all this sea and air power concentrated in one small area it is just the perfect recipe for confrontation. No wonder we are beginning to collide. What else could be the expected outcome? Whose cause does this U.S. Naval exercise serve anyway, ours or Iran's? Both sides of this threatening conflict appear to be doing their damnedest to get this war going. There does not appear to be any way of stopping this desired war between Iran's Revolutionary Guard and Bush and his interests. Someone please tell me if I am wrong!

A letter to Al Gore: With mutual Antagonization towards war with Iran, Increasing Bush Scandals, Planetary health, We need Gore now!

A letter to Al Gore:With mutual antagonization towards a war with Iran that will spread from there, Increasing Bush scandals, and the worsening health of the planet about to get exponentially worse. We need Al Gore! the following 3 stories made me realize I must include all 3 of them into A letter to Al as all 3 are reasons we must have him as President in 2008. I will hold of sending this letter until I get any feedback from you on anything else pertinent that should be included.
I did do a story yesterday about the Brits response to the capture of their Marines that sounded a bit confrontational.It appears as if the Revolutionary Guard are doing their share to get this Westen, Iranian war going. First, we never know who is telling the truth today. With that said, we have to search for the truth ourselves. I tend to believe the British Commander who said they did a search of the ship in Iraqi warers. When it was completed, the Iranian Revolutionar guard boarded the British ship, moved them into Iranian waters and then arrested them. That sounds a bit odd to me until you read the way the land Border confrontation came about.
This morning I received this article on a land border incursion that also appears to be of Iranian instigation. Four Iraqi army soldiers, one interpreter, and one Iraqi border policemen are unaccounted for after a joint border patrol was engaged with small-arms and rocket-propelled grenade fire in Eastern Diyala near the Iran-Iraq border Thursday afternoon. 5-73 Cav was conducting a joint border patrol of the Iraq/Iran border with soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, 1st Brigade, 5th Iraqi Army Division east of Balad Ruz. During the conduct of the patrol, the patrol observed two Iranian soldiers run from Iraq back across the Iranian border as they approached. Later, the patrol came upon a single Iranian soldier on the Iraqi side of the border who did not flee.
As the patrol was speaking to the Iranian soldier, they were approached by a platoon-size element of Iranian soldiers. An Iranian border captain informed the joint Iraqi and Coalition force patrol that if they tried to leave their location the Iranians would fire upon them.
While talking to the Iranian border captain, the patrol was engaged by Iranian forces with smallarms and RPG fire. The CF Soldiers returned fire to break contact and left the area to report the incident. The Iranian forces continued to fire indirect fire well into Iraq as CF Soldiers withdrew; for reasons unknown at this time, the Iraqi Army forces remained behind.
I have always written that Bush is doing his damnedest to instigate and find an excuse to start a war with Iran. now it has become obvious that both sides are antagonizing for it. I also thought of doing another story on Al Gore because I am going to write him another letter today. I will thank him for what he is trying to do for the planet, thank him for his $25 million Virgin Earth Initiative with Richard Branson, Ask him to do the same thing as an initiative to propel Hydrogen where it should be as our next primary fuel source and now.
It would give the switch to Hydrogen a kick in the pants to get even further than it is and will ensure that it happens sooner rather than later. That and express once again that I know as recently as his testimony to Congress last week he reiterated he is not seeking to run in 2008, that we and the world need him at the helm of the United States in 2008.
He is the only person in the Country supremely outfitted to clean up the mess Bush has made of world relations and at the same time rebuild "our America" after Bush's failed new societal and world order, while leading the world in planetary management. It is absolutely vital to the entire world that the United States has Al Gore at the helm if we are to successfully travel down the right road into the future.
Anyway my 3rd option was on writing a story about the numerous scandals during this misadministration. It is really sickening. The few occurring right now such as Plamegete, Attorneygate, the still unfolding Abramoff corruption scandal, and too many numerous past scandals to track. Here is a start!
Watching more inequities unfolding every day it is sickeningly obvious that we must get rid of these Republicans and get Al Gore to realize our future, the future of the entire world is dependent upon Al Gore running in 2008 and we, all Americans around the world will do whatever we have to in order to ensure he is our next President.

Bush Ignorantly fires Double Barreled as Congress while Cheney takes an ignorant Single Shot!

President Bush assailed the Democratic-led Congress Saturday for challenging him over funding the Iraq war and the firing of federal prosecutors, and demanded that lawmakers back down. Who the hell does this guy think he is demanding anything? I mean come on, Do the wrong thing or else! Or else what?
As you know Bush has threatened to veto the bill passed by the House that ties a deadline for a troop withdrawal to the latest emergency bill to fund the war. I know I have asked this in the past but this asinine childish game of his, give me what I want or I am going to cut off my nose to spite my face. Please do! I hope you are shooting yourself in the foot at the same time.
Doesn't this make him the party guilty of not funding the troops unless he is allowed to play his ignorant games? I also heard that he is using the excuse of not signing the Bill because there is much too much Pork in it. I am sure there is. From what I understand after listening to Democratic opposition this pork is primarily Republican Pork left from the Republican controlled Congress. Does anyone have any input on that?
Bush said The clock is running. Isn't it running on him? "The secretary of defense has warned that if Congress does not approve the emergency funding for our troops by April 15, our men and women in uniform will face significant disruptions -- and so will their families." Thanks to Bush, aren't they already suffering? I am so sick of the childish demands made by Bush. He has had his way too long and his ignorance has to be countered.
On the U.S. attorneys matter, Bush defended as "reasonable" his offer of interviews with Rove and the other officials. Yeah that's reasonable to an idiot! No transcribers, no witnesses so his cronies can lie, behind closed doors, I mean come on stop playing us for idiots and look in the mirror or is that as broke as America.
If there is no compromise, the issue could end up in court and Bush may claim that executive privilege shields his aides from having to testify. To me in itself that is an admission of guilt! I know I am no Presidential scholar but it does not strike me as right that Bush can claim Presidential privilege for those that work for him. They are not the President. Isn't Bush protected from prosecution as long as he is in office. Isn't that protection? Even if his cronies implicate him nothing can be doe about now. Is that right?
Bush's twin blasts against the Democrats marked a striking departure from weeks of trying to foster a cooperative spirit with them to make progress on immigration law overhaul, energy initiatives and health care. I don't think that is a stunning departure from cooperation. You know he will only cooperate as long as he gets his way. He accuses the Democrats of playing politics but those are his political games of my way or the highway and we must defeat it somehow.
White House officials said Bush still wants progress on those issues, but felt compelled to lay down markers on principles close to his heart: the separation of powers between the White House and the legislative branch and his role as commander in chief in charge of the Iraq war. Everything this idiot wants is close to his little dead heart and Democrats must do as they are and continue to lay down America's markers of principle and not Bush's perverted versions.
Once again Bush proves himself to be a mindless childish idiot and at the same time Cheney proves he is of the same ilk.
Vice President Dick Cheney accused the Democrat-led House of Representatives of not supporting troops in Iraq and of sending a message to terrorists that America will retreat in the face danger. As I said, isn't it bush who now refuses to support the troops unless his idiocy is supported too?
I am sick of these childish games! He continues to accuse Democrats of not supporting the troops. They're undermining them. Cheney told a gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition at the Oceanside Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manalapan, Florida, about 60 miles north of Miami. We support our troops. We do not support Bush or his lies. This mindless harmful to the country idiotic rhetoric must be defeated and must stop!
On Friday, the House voted to clamp a cutoff deadline on the Iraq war, agreeing by a thin margin to pull combat troops out by next year.,2933,261001,00.html
You can bet this will be overridden like everything else that makes good dense and goes against Bush. I am not the only one I am sure that has said many times in the past but Bush will stymie everything the Democrats do to hold him accountable and force him to do the right thing. He will try to make the Democratic Congress look as ineffective as the Republican Congress but I believe people at large will see who the real culprit is and once we get rid of Bush we can start getting America on track but it will not be easy!

When all is said and done the Revolutionary Guard, Israel, and Bush, will have their War!

Supposedly the captured British marines admit to a purposeful incursion into Iranian waters.this is a classic setup.
Iran says the 15 British sailors and marines seized by Iran in the Persian Gulf have confessed to trespassing into Iranian territory, the semi-official FARS News Agency reported Saturday.But the British Ministry of Defense would not confirm the report. (Watch reports on UK troops 'confessing' to being in Iran waters )
The British government said its request to communicate with the detained troops has not been granted by Iran.
The British Ministry of Defense said Friday the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy surrounded and seized the marines while they were conducting a routine inspection on a merchant vessel. They were then "escorted by Iranian vessels into Iranian territorial waters." (Location of incident)
Iran's foreign ministry spokesman on Saturday condemned the British government for attempting to cover up its "blunder" and said it should stop "putting blame on others," according to IRNA, the state-run Iranian news agency.
When all is said and done the Revolutionary Guard, Israel, and Bush, will have their War! It looks after all like the Gulf will be the boiling point. I will be keeping an eye on the developments on this as they continue to unfold. Anyway, Bush, Britain, Israel, Iran, China, Russia, all of them are looking for this war and a chance to test their technology and military. They all feel they can militarily win their way and no body will like the results.
It does not seem strange to me at all that this confrontation in the Gulf took place. You have to remember a couple of things. Yesterday I referred to a naval confrontation between Iran and the U.S. in 1998 that was the largest naval battle since WW2 and with the U.S. Losing 1 ship and Iran 6, it was a lopsided victory Iran wants payback and they constantly say do not be fooled, we are much better then during Gulf 1. It also only makes sense that the Revolutionary guard would be in the forefront and not the regular military because as is the case with the U.S., it is the Religious zealots in Iran that are looking to assert their desires not the regular citizens. They will be dragged into this like the average American has been.
A professor from Columbia University said nothing ever comes of these confrontations.You do have to wonder why they pay them the big bucks. There are no experts today beyond those of us on the lower level of life "if you will" where this confrontation is coming from and will be instigated. You constantly hear idiots like Bush say this is a war like no other and we must think like never before as he and others prove incapable of doing. Anyway with that said, the Professor under normal conditions would be right! But these are not normal conditions.
Normally with naval confrontation as this, muscles would be flexed to say don't mess with us and a diplomatic solution would be worked out. It is way beyond that. No one wants a Diplomatic solution. Bush and Israel want their new middle east order and at the same time the so called Islamists want their version. no one wants a Diplomatic solution! It's funny but these so called experts have proven from the beginning of this so called war on terror that they are worthless today and do not have a clue! They have learned no lessons from Vietnam, Lebanon, Iraq, or any of the many interventions and conflicts of the past.
At any rate, Iran, or the revolutionary guard does want conflict. That is why they took the 15 British Marine's and when all is said and done they and Bush will get their way and we will all pay.

15 British Marines captured by Iran in the Gulf plus missing Iranian spy push's war with Iran closer!

15 British Marines Captured by Iran in the Gulf, plus missing Iranian spy bring the war with Iran ever closer!
I must admit I do not remember this but I just heard on CNN that Iran and the U.S. had the biggest Navy battle since WW2 in the same area in the Gulf in 1988. I do not have a link to that I just heard it on the news. In light of what has just occurred and was has occurred of late, some serious thought is called for.
An Iranian naval patrol seized 15 British sailors who had boarded a vessel suspected of smuggling cars of the coast of Iraq, military officials said. The Royal Marines and ordinary naval officers were believed to have been apprehended by up to six ships from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy who claimed they had entered Iranian waters. I understand this was not the regular Iranian navy but that it was the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, not that that should matter.
British naval officials said the sailors, using small boarding craft, had completed an inspection of a merchant vessel in Iraqi waters when the Iranians arrived. Commodore Nick Lambert, commander of the H.M.S. Cornwall -- the frigate from which the British patrol had been deployed -- said the incident did not involve fighting or use of weapons."We've been assured from the scant communications that we've had from the Iranians at the tactical level that the 15 people are safely in their hands," he said.
Of course the British are calling for the immediate return of men and equipment but there has been no Iranian response of yet. I would not expect there to be for a couple of days because Iran is in the middle of a Religious holiday. Anyway please check out the map to see where this is happening!
Anyway In light of the fact that A former Iranian spy chief was suspected of defecting to the West, raising the prospect of a timely intelligence bonanza amid tensions with Teheran.
While the speculation is impossible to verify, it is hard to imagine a more tantalizing prospect for Western intelligence agencies than the defection of General Ali Reza Azkari, who is known to have served in Lebanon in the 1990s liaising with Hizbollah. He would also be a wealth of information as to the depth of Iranian involvement in Iraq.
That could be the case but after almost 3 weeks I have heard no word as to the status of General Azkari but Iran is ratcheting up the rhetoric that the U.S. has kidnapped him. With the increasing tensions on the Iraq Iran Border, increased tensions in Iraq as to Iranian involvement there, with American Fighter and tanker aircraft in place in Europe and the fact that we have discussed in the past that the navy in the Gulf would be doing its share to find an excuse for Bush to attack Iran, you have to wonder who was really at fault here and where this is going to lead?

Bush says he cares about our wounded soldiers as he proposes to cut critical Programs in 2008!

First I just have to say I am still trying to regain control of my thoughts after finding out my 18 year old is trying to get into the Marines so he can go to Iraq. I already have 2 sons in this and I am devestated. These cuts Bush proposes are bothering me more by the second! Anyway read these cuts you will be disturbed! What the heck?
Veterans' funding news from Congressman John W. Olver
Dear James,
It has been nearly four years since May 2003 when President Bush stood under a banner on the USS Abraham Lincoln that proclaimed "Mission Accomplished," and yet American casualties tragically continue in Iraq. Over three thousand Americans have died there, and over 23,000 have been injured, with many of those wounds being permanent.

As the problems at Walter Reed Army Medical Center have recently brought to light, injured soldiers returning home are funneled into a Veterans Administration (VA) health care system in crisis. That system is being overwhelmed by troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan seeking care, and, in many cases, is unable to provide the prompt, quality medical care they deserve. The VA service-deficit numbers that we even know about are eye-opening: The Administration has a 400,000-case backlog of benefit claims filed during FY 2006 or later! On average, those veterans will likely have to wait six months to two years before ever receiving benefits.
Even as the military's disability caseload has increased (the Army's is up 80% since 2001), the President's FY 2008 budget proposal cuts spending for several programs that support the men and women who are fighting and/or who have fought for our country.

Examples of these cuts include:
* For the fifth year in a row, the President's proposed budget raises health care costs for 1.3 million veterans - this time by assuming $4.9 billion in increased co-payments on prescription drugs and new enrollment fees over ten years.
* The President's budget proposes overall cuts in military health care totaling $2 billion in FY 2008 and $14 billion over five years.
*The President's budget submission particularly shortchanges veterans' health care funding levels after FY 2008. More returning wounded troops in the "out years" would swamp an already underfunded VA system.
*The President's budget cuts medical and prosthetic research by $2.7 million. This could set grant research back by years, just as many troops are coming home with injuries that require extra expertise and technology.
*The President's proposed budget also eliminates an important health program for traumatic brain injuries - at a time when over 1,500 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have suffered brain injuries from IEDs.
Supporting our troops clearly requires much more than patriotic verbiage. It requires providing enough funding to meet the needs of our soldiers returning from war right now and also a longer-term fiscal commitment to shape a health care infrastructure adequate to meet the needs of the 700,000 veterans who will enter the VA system in the coming years.
To this end, I am supporting legislation in the House to prohibit the Department of Defense from increasing medical and dental health care coverage fees for retired military personnel; to establish a new patient accountability system within the VA hospital network; and to increase, by $3.4 billion, the immediate funding available for medical assistance to military personnel and returning war veterans.

Please be reassured that I will continue to support meeting our health care commitment to our nation's veterans.

Bush Aides face Subpoenas, White House Morale Plummets as Bush threatens with Supreme Court, Remember?

Bush Aides Face Subpoenas, White House Morale Plummets as Bush threatens Supreme Court? Will His appointees make his day? House Judiciary subcommittee today authorized subpoenas for Karl Rove, President Bush’s political adviser, and other senior White House officials in the investigation into the firing of eight United States attorneys.
Democrats said the subpoenas, approved on a voice vote of the panel, would not be issued immediately but could provide leverage for Congress in trying to win the testimony of the aides being sought. I know Democrats say this vote was only for leverage in case the Justice Department and White House continue to hide the truth. I mean come on this is Bush.
They really don't think he is going to cooperate can they? Bush's pitiful take it or leave it offer is to allow private interviews with Mr. Rove, Harriet E. Miers, the former White House counsel; and two other officials. It also offered to provide access to e-mail messages and other communications about the dismissals, but not those between White House officials.

I just saw a bit of Snows meeting to discuss the issue and I'm telling you, it stinks to high heaven. Not only is Bush stupidly saying he has provided 3,000 pages to back up the White House but what about the rest? Also I just found out that there are 3 or so weeks of Emails that are missing. Snow simply said he doesn't know why.
That in itself is a little more than suspicious especially in light of the underhanded practices followed by this misadministration. I also heard something else I didn't think about. I know Bush is insisting that a discussion between Rove's, the white House officials, and the Judiciary Committee be held behind closed doors as we heard but without a standard stenographer.
This is an absolutely asinine "demand". That cannot be allowed to happen! you know for a fact that if that happened the Democrats may come out speaking the truth but the Republicans will come out with a story that backs them up. The truth will not told of heard by us and Bush and his misadministration will get away with their lies once again.
This confrontation was the sharpest yet between the Bush White House and the new Democratic majority in Congress on a matter of oversight, and it set the stage for a legal showdown over executive privilege. The White House vowed to fight any subpoenas in court. You know the confrontation is sharp because Bush does not want the truth out as too the depth of White House involvement of course.
I first want to say that in 1998 when Clinton was trying to use executive privilege Snow wrote that you should not be able to hid behind it but now that it's Bush it's okay? Anyway with all the lying that is going to continue here over just this one misuse of power supplied by the Patriot act I am very pleased that the Senate has voted overwhelmingly to revoke the authority they had granted the administration last year under the USA Patriot Act to install federal prosecutors indefinitely without Senate confirmation.
That is a good start but I have said from the beginning that in the right hands the Patriot Act would be a useful tool but under Bush it is only one more tool he will abuse and misuse and of course he has. The entire Patriot Act should be revoked because you can bet Bush abusing the entire thing. With all said and done you can bet this will end up in the Supreme Court.
My question to you is, is Bush threatening to do this because he is confidant with his appointees that their finding will be in his favor? To me, with an unbiased opinion it should be found in favor of Democrats if the truth is to be found! How do you think this will turn out in the Supreme Court? bottom line is Gonzales is lying and should be replaced. Will he be?

Bush's shame is not just Homeless Veterans but their abuse and misuse from Enlistment!

I have to say first that I have never looked at Paula Vahn's work before but I am glad to see anyone disclose the gross mistreatment of veterans. I know it has happened in the past but in light of the lying two faced rhetoric that routinely comes from Bush in every instance, this is routine Bush misperformance.
This time it's about how much he appreciates and takes care of our soldiers and veterans while he has done everything to show he doesn't and abuses and misuses them from beginning to end and blames it on someone else. I just can't stand any more of his lying ineptitude only to follow his plan. it is unconscionable what he is doing to the very soldiers he depends on to fight his wars once they are no longer available to do his bidding.
For all the talk we hear about supporting the troops, here is a shameful truth: hundreds of U.S. veterans have come home from the war, only to find themselves homeless but sadly it gets worse. she interviewed a troop that was taking shots from kids and old women while fighting in
Iraq and now that he is discharged he is a homeless veteran suffering from PTSD flipping Burgers to survive after a destroyed marriage and family.
He is only one of a growing segment of America's homeless population, veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. To date, their numbers are small, but the concern is a repeat of what the Vietnam War produced, thousands of homeless vets. But, this time, there's a higher rate of post-traumatic stress disorder and an economy with skyrocketing housing costs.
I have to tell you, as I have said numerous times in the past in regard to the fact that this so called war on terrorism will dwarf every war in the past and every single problem experienced during Vietnam will and is being duplicated and worse, and every single problem experienced by Vietnam Veteran's will be heightened by the simple fact that today's veterans are under the callous misguidance of the Decider.
Ed Quill who works with the Volunteers of America, a nonprofit advocacy group for the homeless who go out in search of vets in need, providing medical care and housing assistance says It makes him feel ashamed when he goes home, and he knows a veteran who is out there and served to protect him doesn't have that same home. This makes us all ashamed and we must all try to do our share to help these soldiers as this situation will and is getting worse despite what Bush will tell you.
In the last two years, the Department of Veterans Affairs counted 1,049 veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan who needed homeless services from the VA. PETE DOUGHERTY, HOMELESS VETERANS PROGRAMS DIRECTOR, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS: What is alarming is if we didn't see some of them, and we weren't getting to them. I am happy to say that he is reporting that homeless Beds in VA homeless shelters are up 40%.
I think that is wonderful that they are getting help but I am dismayed to find out that so many of our heroes are in this position after serving us so well. Dougherty is proud saying we have come light years from Vietnam. I don't know? I am pleased we are helping veterans but in the respect that they are even in this position tells me we have gone nowhere.
I understand the problem often starts with the untreated mental health issues and a system that's really not ready to help them transition. I was surprised and dismayed to hear of just one of many homeless vets who found himself living in his car on the streets of Brooklyn. He was frustrated. He had post-traumatic stress disorder. He tried to reach out and navigate the bureaucracy, but, pretty soon, he ended up homeless.
Sadly he was only one of a few that came to VA offices. They have seen dozens since then. They have seen homeless people who are single parents with children, young veterans, all different types. The numbers are out there, and they're significant, and they're growing. I find that very disturbing knowing what they have done and how Bush routinely says he will do anything to take care of them.
Pushing for additional funding for Homeless Veterans Barack Obama pointed out that every night 200,000 of our veterans are homeless. While that does include Vietnam Veterans this is unconscionable especially since Bush is taking such good care of them.
This misadministration should be ridiculed and ashamed of themselves not only for the way they are abusing and misusing our active military but also for the mistreatment of them once they are no longer serving. It is very disheartening to see this happening at a time when we as citizens are so proud of what they have done for us and at a time when we are in so much need of their services and they must know we are grateful to them even as this Misadministration blows this issue to.
I know I ask it all the time but how does Bush continue to get away with this?

Video shows Bomb Blowing up an American Bradley fighting vehicle: It's an easily remedied problem!

Video shows Bomb Blowing up an American Bradley fighting vehicle: Valid or not it portrays an easily remedied problem! This is important, Please give me your input!
I am asking for your help! After watching a vary disturbing video yesterday morning on Google or on one of the news outlets depicting an insurgent casually walking up behind a cornered American Bradley fighting vehicle my first thought was how could they get themselves trapped like this but this is our flesh and blood in there and this guy casually walked up behind this Bradley fighting vehicle, crawled underneath, planted a massive explosion, and blew the hell out of it. Here is the video but I now believe it is propoganda.
I haven't heard anything further on this and I do not know if the video has been authenticated or not but it did unveil a very disturbing weakness I refuse to believe has not been addressed. I also didn't think the story was long enough to justify a Diary so I was hoping to comment on someone else's. I didn't get the opportunity and dwelling on it, I was stunned at the inexpensive, low tech simplicity of solving this problem and giving the troops who ride in them some semblance of peace of mind.
However, I need your help because by the end of the day when I decided this vulnerability and remedy had to be discussed because whether or not the video was valid, this vulnerability must be addressed because to me it appears absolutely unnecessary. I am sure someone here can tell me whether or not it is.
One of my sons is in one of those damn things and even if he wasn't that is our American flesh and blood and it is our duty to help them if we can. Anyway what I was getting at is that the video was nowhere to be found and I do believe I found it on Google but it was a Fox News Video.
If someone can find or has this supposedly Al Qaeda video can you please forward it to me and I will include it in this diary to illustrate the unnecessary vulnerability of these vehicles. I did find hundreds of stills showing a Bradley fighting vehicle sitting at a dead end trapped, with that insurgent underneath it planting explosives.
To me whether or not this video is for real or not is not the issue. As we all know. the IED problem has not been solved and as long as Bush insists on keeping our troops in the middle of an Iraqi cavil war it most likely never will be. With that said there is no way this vulnerability should exist or not be addressed. it appears to be an obvious quick cheap fix and if so, I refuse to believe we haven't done it yet.
Why do we not have Security cameras mounted on the rear corners of these vehicles so the sides and the back can be watched? Can anyone tell me? Is it really that simple? If so the troops could clean them before deployment and I'm sure the troops sitting in the back would be more than happy to monitor these cameras and they would also have peace of mind if that is possible in that situation.
Please give me your input and let me know what you think about this! I will be contacting CENTCOM later with this if we have something helpful here. Thank you!

Tony Snow Job wants to be clear: Don't hold Bush Accountable, Don't put this mess on his Door!

Tony Snow job wants to be clear: Don't try to hold Bush accountable, don't put this mess on his doorstep where it belongs!
You know, 8 attorney's were fired by Gonzales for not doing the idiots bidding. The White House denied any involvement as usual but again as usual, further investigation finds that the order to fire them went through Rove's, the teacher of Bush's 3D Politics (deceitful, deceptive, divisive, politics). Meirs who had no experience as a judge, and was Bush's failed nomination to replace Sandra Day Oconnor is also implicated and you know she's guilty. Worse, as usual it seems to have again come from the top and of course is once again denied. I am so sick of this blatant underhandedness and lying.
Anyway as you know, at the same time is the hearings of Valerie Plame. She rightly says the outing of her as a secret agent not only ruined her career as a secret agent but it has endangered the lives of agents around the world. We already know Scooter Libby has been convicted for his involvement and you can bet in the end he will get a Presidential pardon
but also that Cheney has again been implicated and Rove's is being threatened with having to testify.
You can bet again that like everything else though, that this too comes right from the top and the chief idiot is once again being protected at the expense of other peoples careers so he can claim stupidity
After Bush purposely diverted from the war on terror so he could attack Iraq and begin to implement his new middle east order you can bet he will very soon go around Congress and find his excuse to attack Iran and really get this mess underway, how on earth can these idiots really expect us to trust and believe all their blatant obvious lies just so they can pursue their new order.
He purposely sacrificed the poor in the Gulf and it still looks like a nuke hit it. Meanwhile, He took care of his own State putting troops in harms way that he said couldn't be done for Katrina. His brothers State of Florida received prompt care in their recent disasters. I just don't get it! How do these idiots get away with this?
The final straw for me was listening to Tony Snow job stupidly lie for Bush again and proclaim I want you to be clear here: Don't go dropping it at the president's door," White House spokesman Tony Snow said Friday when asked about Bush's involvement. I mean come on! He is the Damn Decider. What happened to the Buck stops here? It all belongs on his door along with a myriad of problems he is causing around the world for future generations of every country.
I am sick of hearing trust me, believe me, I will do the right thing. Yeah but for him and his new order not us or the world at large. How can anyone with any semblance of respect or conscience lie and cover for him any longer? how can Bush or the White really expect they believability or trust coming. They have screwed up absolutely everything they touch and then lied about it to follow their new order. Bush and this misadministration have not come through on one thing for America or the average American. I challenge anyone to name just one thing! This is old news but if anyone needs a link please just ask!

As it Ratchets up with Iran we need Paces so called "immoral" brave soldiers more than ever!

As it Ratchets up with Iran we need Pace's so called "immoral" brave Soldiers more than ever, time to change the idiot rules!
A senior Iranian army commander warned the United States and other Western powers not to make any "stupid move" over Tehran's nuclear program and said they would be surprised by the military response to any such action.
The comments by the commander-in-chief of the regular army, reported by newspapers on Saturday, were the latest in a series of defiant statements by Iran's leadership as the United Nations prepares to vote on new sanctions against the country.
The United States of course says it would prefer a negotiated solution to the crisis, but has not ruled out military options if diplomacy fails. Of course Bush is poised to strike and at a time when our soldiers are over extended and our enlistment policies are really lacking.
Armed forces chief Ataollah Salehi said Iran's military was much stronger today than when Iran fought an eight-year war against Saddam Hussein's Iraq in 1980-88.
"Today the defensive capabilities of Iran are not to be compared with those of the time of the holy war and if our bullying enemies make a stupid move, they will certainly be surprised," the daily Siyasat-e Rouz quoted Salehi as saying on Friday.
Those of you that read my diaries on this subject know two of my sons are in this. It is not that they are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan that worries me but the fact that at the very least, Bush will attack Iran and China and Russia will come in to help Iran. To me that is the surprise military response Bush should be thinking about!
I see nothing but a Bush necessitated need for more dedicated soldiers at a time when he is unlawfully instigating wars and is making a mess of our military.

Marine Gen. Peter Pace, meet Marine Staff Sgt. Eric Alva. Sergeant Alva lost his right leg to an Iraqi land mine in the early days of the Iraq war. He was awarded a Purple Heart, which was presented by President Bush. Oh, and Sergeant Alva is gay.
Sergeant Alva, meet General Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the top military adviser to the president. On Monday, Pace said he opposes ending the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, because it would signal that the Pentagon condones "immoral" behavior.
`I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts, Pace told the Chicago Tribune editorial board. "I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way.'' Remember those words: "in any way."
WTF? First, it sounds to me like he is saying what the chief idiot wants to hear and he should shut the hell up. He is supposed to be a professional! The don't ask, don't tell policy allows gays and lesbians to lay down their lives and limbs for their country as long as they lie about their sexual orientation. Isn't that in itself lying and immoral behavior and being asked for by the military?
These Gay men and woman are being told to lie if they want to be part of what is supposed to be the greatest military in the world. Meanwhile, the Army last year granted "moral waivers" to more than 10 percent of its new recruits. This enabled men and women who had been convicted of crimes as serious as aggravated assault, robbery, burglary and vehicular homicide to enlist as long as they didn't admit to being homosexual. There is something very wrong with this!
One of Paces predecessors Army Gen. John Shalikashvili, says correctly that the nation and the military have changed and as we all know, Our military has been stretched thin by our deployments in the Middle East, and we must welcome the service of any American who is willing and able to do the job. That of course is true but it is the future wars bush will create that has me very concerned for our future and the future of our young men and woman of any race, creed, color, or sexual orientation.
It's to be noted that my sons have been in for years and all over the world serving with every allied military as EOD and not once have I ever heard anything about serving with Gay soldiers from either one of them. When I was in I know all I cared about was that I could rely on the guy next to me if something came down.
With that in mind, can allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military undermine morale and compromise unit cohesion, as critics have long argued? Not in the 24 nations that we call allies. Israel, Britain, Australia and other allies in the fight against terrorism have no restrictions on homosexuals serving openly in their armed forces and report no problems whatsoever.
This stupid policy must be changed! It is totally obvious that it is only being kept because of the perverted Christian immoral values that are undermining not only America and our military but the entire world.

A Letter of Appeal from Al Gore before he testifies before Congress!

Dear james,

On March 21st, I will testify before Congress on the immediate action that needs to be taken to end the climate crisis. At the hearing, I will deliver the 294,374 messages you signed, demonstrating that hundreds of thousands of people share my sense of urgency.
If an additional 55,626 people sign our message, it will be as though 350,000 of us are there at the hearing expressing our determination to convince Congress to act. Having served in the House and Senate, I can tell you that members of these committees would find this to be a meaningful and impressive show of support.
There are only 5 days left before the hearings begin, so please do not pass up this opportunity to join in showing the broad public support we need in order to solve the climate crisis.
I know you have friends or family who care deeply about this issue but have yet to sign our message to Congress.
Ask them to help fill that committee room with 350,000 messages by visiting:
The reason Congress has so far failed to act is not because there are no solutions to the problem. Nor is it because the majority doesn't believe that the climate crisis is real. They have failed to act, because they have not yet faced a sufficient expression of political will on the part of the American people demanding they confront our climate crisis head on. You and I know that political will is a renewable resource, and enough already exists to start solving this crisis. We just have to communicate that forcefully to the political leaders of our country.
In the last two weeks alone 101,673 people visited and signed our message to Congress. This is an incredible demonstration of the energy behind this issue. In my testimony, of course, I will speak about the scientific evidence for global warming - just reiterated six weeks ago by the world's scientists in the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But frankly, the debate on the science has long been over - except for a diminishing number of skeptics and deniers.
At this point, it is far more important to deliver your message about the urgency with which this crisis must be faced. Political leaders need to know that you intend to reward those who do the right thing and that you will work to replace those who do not.
That's why it's vital we fill up the hearing room with 350,000 messages.
Please ask your friends to sign our message to Congress today by visiting:
Together we are building a movement that has the potential to translate your strong feelings into effective change for our country. And we all know that when the United States changes - and offers leadership - the entire world will follow.

Thank you,

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed: Why Now? Are we supposed to believe this? It's to help Bush and it's dangerous!

Little in the just released confession of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the presumed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, is new. The U.S. government long ago cataloged those alleged crimes based on extensive interrogations of Mohammed and other prisoners held in the CIA's controversial and now liquidated overseas prisons. But the transcripts of Mohammed's hearing — part of proceedings that began last Friday at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — are the first time the U.S. government has made publicly available his personal description of a stunning range of terrorist plots he claims to have had a hand in. These include both the 1993 and 2001 assaults on the World Trade Center, as well as the beheading of the Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. Mohammed boasts he had complete or partial participation in 29 terror plots, some of which were never carried out.

At a time when the Bush Administration is facing stiff criticism in a variety of domestic scandals as well as for its conduct of the Iraq war, Mohammed's confession has quickly become a focus of cable TV and other media coverage, a reminder of America's ongoing battle against international terrorism. But the attention focused on Mohammed, thought to be al-Qaeda's third-ranking leader, also underscores the fact that the terrorist organization's chief, Osama bin Laden, and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, remain at large at a time when their former Taliban protectors in Afghanistan are resurgent.,8599,1599423,00.html
And what about Mullah Omar? I understand that KSM also has taken credit for the Cole bombing, the Bali Bombing, and a myriad of other bombings, murders, and a myriad of failed attempts.
Mohammed portrayed himself as Al Qaeda's most ambitious operational planner in a confession to a U.S. military tribunal that said he planned and supported a series of terrorist attacks including a 2002 shooting on an island off Kuwait that killed a U.S. Marine, according to an account released by the Pentagon.
He listed for the Guantanamo tribunal 28 attacks he claimed to have directly planned or carried out, and another three he supported, including trying to kill Pope John Paul II, President Clinton and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.He also said he planned the 2002 bombing of a Kenya beach resort frequented by Israelis, the failed missile attack on an Israeli passenger jet after it took off from Mombasa, Kenya, and the bombing of a nightclub in Bali, Indonesia that killed more than 200.
Other plots he said he was responsible for included planned attacks against the Sears Tower in Chicago, the Empire State Building and New York Stock Exchange in New York City, the Panama Canal, and Big Ben and Heathrow Airport in London — none of which happened.,2933,258907,00.html
We are being handed KSM at a time where it is very benificial time to take the increasing heat off Bush and his misadministration. we are being led to believe that this guy alomst single handedly took on the entire western world and is responsible for most of the death and destriction we have been dealing with.not only does this take the heat of Bush but KSM's misadmission would take the pressure off whoever is out there that really did all this. I hope we ware not stipid enough to let this happen. It coculd be true but I wouldn't believe it for a minute. All of a sudden this guy seems to be the Holy Grail of Al Qaeda and again only for Bush's political games. As I said, what happpened to Bin Laden, Zawahiri, Mullah Omar, and the rest of them? They seem to have dropped off the map?

Global nuclear coverup, Depleted Uranium, Gulf war Syndrome, Increased Autism, Diabetes, Cancer!

Global nuclear coverup, Depleted uranium, Gulf war Syndrome,increased Autism Diabetes Cancer, they won't admit it but Now you know why!
Leuren Moret is a whistle blower from the Livermore Lab. In her presentations she exposes shocking and highly suppressed facts about our Government poisoning is with radiation right at this very moment.
Leuren documents every statement she makes with research documents many of which are actual Government Data to draw their conclusions. Did you know that diabetes, Autism, and other forms of mental illness are caused by exposure on nuclear radiation. No wonder Diabetes and Autism are on the upswing and supposedly no one knows why. You have to believe they do not want you to know the truth here too.
From nuclear testing we have switched to nuclear power plants that are causing increasingly high rates of cancer, birth defects, and literally an epidemic of diabetes. I have heard it mentioned here before that
We have used weapons containing depleted Uranium and didn't really think too much about it because I really wasn't sure. But watching this video totally documented that depleted uranium has not only turned Iraq and Afghanistan into uninhabitable nuclear holocaust for millions of years. Remember the Gulf war Syndrome? Depleted uranium was also used at Tora Bora. I was not aware of that! Cancer among soldiers is rampant!
We are giving our soldiers a death sentence. Why are we not testing our soldiers? You know why!Anyway it is also blowing over the rest of the planet causing Americans, Europeans, and others to die from radiation diseases.
Remember Chernobyl? That too is affecting all of us as it only takes one year to mix globally. This is all something our Governments do not want us to know. I was really surprised to hear the Queen has a great financial interest in Uranium mines around the world. I was blown away to hear that there were 2 million new cases of Diabetes around the world in one year. It is not just Britain and the U.S. that do not want the truth known, there is a Global Conspiracy on the issue because other governments are also involved in nuclear programs and they don't want their citizens to know the real reasons why their children are being born with severe anomalies and why the diabetes rates are soaring worldwide. This is just amazing! Watch the video and the cities around the world that are least affected will blow you away. Washington DC is the lowest in the country. What a surprise.
This all amazes me in light of the Manifesto to the World I wrote detailing what is happening and why, and what we will do to the planet someone has to be able to live and be sustained on, and hearing routinely the rattles of war threatening to make things even worse!

Alberto Gonzales today defended his Lies, as Facilitator of Bush's new order he must be fired!

Like Bush didn't know anything. My ass! A recently canned former U.S. attorney, who has promised to name two lawmakers he says pressured him to build cases against Democrats, is scheduled to testify Tuesday before congressional committees. Former U.S. Attorney David Iglesias of New Mexico is one of eight federal prosecutors appointed by President Bush who were dismissed in a Justice Department shake-up last year.
At least six indicate they were summarily sacked after expressing differences with Washington. They were scheduled to testify Tuesday to Congress -- four before the Senate Judiciary Committee and two before a House Judiciary subcommittee.
The Justice Department contends they were fired because of job performance. A statement from the six testifying attorneys says they were given "little or no information" as to why they were dismissed and they will refrain from speculation.
Meanwhile, the director who conveyed the bad news to the attorneys has resigned, saying his decision to leave has been in the works since June. The Justice Department says the resignation is unrelated to the controversy.
You can bet those attornies were pressured to build cases against Democrats and you can bet that now that they have been fired for disagreeing with Bush as is the standard case for disagreeing with his abuse and misuse, they too will be casually dismissed as disgruntled employees. The guy who fired them quit, what a surprise! When is the lying going to stop being tolerated.
Gonzales is a worm and action should be under way to pressure for his dismissal! He fires his top aide who of course will get the blame for Gonzales's shortcomings as always happens with his master and the shit will just continue. Gonzales must be replaced!
Democrats are examining e-mails they say prove the White House was far more involved in the firings of U.S. attorneys than it has acknowledged. Again you can bet they were but as usual the truth will be denied and never admitted to.
With the recent disclosure of what we all knew would happen under the chief idiot that FBI Director Robert Mueller and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales have been abusing the Patriot Act and to me only for Bush's Political gain there is a question of whether they can survive scrutiny.
They better not! We know for a fact that every aspect of the Patriot would be abused and misused under Bush. That was my original concern in Bush having this tool. The Patriot Act under anyone else may be okay but not in the hands of the Decider who is using it to follow his new order. He is doing that with the blessings of Gonzales. As such, Gonzales for his role in destroying our Democracy and "our America" should be replaced and quickly.

Israeli's change mind on Dormant Saudi Peace initiative, now I know why, 30 Day countdown to War!

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Sunday said he was ready to treat seriously’ a dormant Saudi initiative calling for a comprehensive peace agreement between Israel and the Arab world in exchange for a full Israeli withdrawal from lands captured in the 1967 Mideast War. Both sides acknowledged they expected no major breakthroughs ahead of the formation of a new Palestinian government in the coming weeks.The talks, following an inconclusive meeting on Feb. 19 attended by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, are part of U.S.-backed efforts to prod the sides to a return to peace talks.
The Saudi peace initiative, which aimed to solve the Palestinian issue by offering Israel a comprehensive peace, was first proposed in 2002 but never got off the ground. It is expected to be high on the agenda at an Arab League summit later this month in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The Saudis, who have never backed away from the initiative, have been pushing hard for other regional countries, many of whom also have endorsed it, to gather behind the initiative in strength to push the peace process forward.
I was very curious about the sudden turnaround by the Israeli's until I received this story this morning.
We are almost certainly in the last days of a countdown to nuclear war. Israel has made plans to attack Iran in a war of aggression, which will probably begin with some staged attack such as the attack on the Liberty in 1967.
Bush and the Gang of Fools in Washington will be part of it; we don't have two carrier groups in the Middle East to support tourism. When it happens kiss the dollar and the United States of America goodbye. If you don't own gold now buy some fairly soon. My experience as a combat intelligence officer tells me the attack will be in the next month.
On the 8th of March Israel issued the following warning. Updated Travel Warnings: Israel's National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Division presents the following updated travel warnings for Israeli's traveling abroad.
It is advised that travelers should avoid visiting and leave the area as soon as possible in the following high to very high-threat countries: Algeria, Afghanistan, Chechnya, (southern Russia) Djibouti, Egypt, (especially the Sinai peninsula), Jordan, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kashmir (northern India), Lebanon Malaysia, Mindanao, (southern Philippines) Northern Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia Southern Thailand, Syria & Yemen. Travelers should postpone non-essential travel to: Bangladesh, Bangkok, Libya, Oman, Nigeria & southeastern Turkey (borders with Iraq and Iran).
Travelers in general, should avoid visiting the following countries: Bahrain, Chad, Kenya, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar, Tunisia. Israeli citizens are called upon to be especially cautious when visiting: Philippines, Turkey, Thailand, & Uzbekistan. (Sources: National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Division, GPO)."
Israel is the most hated country in the world today for their war crimes and they are about to magnify the problem 1000 fold. I cannot predict the negative things which will happen as a result of another illegal and immoral war but dropping nuclear weapons on a non-nuclear state which poses no threat to either the US or Israel is going to open Pandora's box as no war crime in history ever tried.
In light of the fact that I have said in numerous stories that attacking Iran was just one of the predetermined goals in attacking Iraq to get in the middle east and that Israel's attacking Iran and Bush coming to their rescue would be his way of circumventing the Democratic Congress before they can act on troop removal and that the attack would come in April.
I wouldn't want to bank on the exact date but I an afraid bob Moriarty is exactly right. I told you no one would stop Bush! Kind of puts Bush's visit to Latin America in a new perspective doesn't it?

30-day Countdown to WarBob MoriartyArchives Mar 11, 2007 We are almost certainly in the last days of a countdown to nuclear war. Israel has made plans to attack Iran in a war of aggression, which will probably begin with some staged attack such as the attack on the Liberty in 1967.

Israel is the most hated country in the world today for their war crimes and they are about to magnify the problem 1000 fold. I cannot predict the negative things which will happen as a result of another illegal and immoral war but dropping nuclear weapons on a non-nuclear state which poses no threat to either the US or Israel is going to open Pandora's box as no war crime in history ever tried. One of the results I can guarantee is that the US dollar is going to be destroyed.
It's no great shakes predicting that. Hell, even the Comptroller General of the United States is running around telling as many people as will listen (about 14 in total, I reckon) that the United States is bankrupt. Between a two-trillion-dollar-losing war in Iraq, a balance of payments totally out of control and the Gang of Fools in Washington, you can pretty much kiss the dollar goodbye the day the attack begins. And don't think for a minute I'm talking about strictly the Republican fools in Washington.
By their actions, or better yet, lack of action, the Democrats have proven since the last election thatthey can be just as corrupt and ignorant as the neo-Nazi Republicans. The American people clearly voted against the illegal war in Iraq andagainst the policies of this all too corrupt administration. Guess how thrilled the voters are going to be when they wake up one morning soon to $200 a barrel oil and find out just how much freedom they have left. (Hint, it rhymes with NONE)
Israel knows what their intentions are and it's no accident that they are warning their citizens to stay out or to get out of almost 40 countries immediately. As hated as they are today, Israel and the United States are about to commit the most foolish and self-destructive act of war in history. I have more time in the chow hall in combat than all ofthis administration combined and I can assure you that we are going to lose. It won't take six months as it did with Iraq, we will know almost at once. It wasn't Hitler who paid the greatest price for the war crimes he committed; it was the German people. And today it will be the citizens of Israel and the United States who will pay the ultimate price for what is no more than cold-blooded murder of millions. The butcher's bill willbe paid.--

Russia revises U.S. missile Defense, as Europe urged to join "Son Of Star Wars"

Russia revises U.S. missile Defense, As Europe urged to join "Son Of Star wars" Russia says Bombers will supress Missile Sield!
Russia said it was revising its military doctrine to reflect other powers' growing use of military force, while a Russian general warned again that Moscow could knock out elements of the US missile defence system planned for eastern Europe. The comments came as Angela Merkel, German chancellor, added her voice to the heated international debate over the missile defence system by calling for Nato to be given responsibility for defusing concerns over the plan.
Nato is the best place for discussion of this issue," she told the Financial Times in an interview, arguing that Washington should step up consultation with its western allies and Russia.
Her statement reflects concerns over increasing east-west tensions since Vladimir Putin, Russian president, delivered a speech in Munich sharply criticising US unilateralism, and the US formally asked Poland and the Czech Republic to host parts of the anti-missile system.
Russia disputes Washington's claims that the system is not aimed at Russia but designed to intercept missiles from "rogue" states such as Iran or North Korea.
Like Russia, I do not believe Bush's missile defense system is not intended to threaten Russia but I became interested in those "Rogue States" and who we were protecting ourselves from. More of that later!
So what do we do to ally their concerns? A top US military defence chief Tuesday urged European countries to join the controversial missile defence system to ward off a "serious threat" from countries such as Iran and North Korea. I mean, come on can Bush really think Iran and North Korea are serious threats?
Anyway Lieutenant General Henry Obering, director of the United States Missile Defence Agency, told a high-powered meeting of security and defence experts in London that it would be "prudent" for European countries to join a US-backed anti-ballistic defence system, also known as "Son of Star Wars."
Just what is the purpose of Son Of Star Wars? A furtherance of Bush's new world "dominance" order!
In response to Bush's instigation we of course get this expected response from the Russian's! Russia's strategic aviation has sufficient potential to suppress elements of a U.S. missile defense shield should it be deployed in Central Europe, the commander of the Strategic Air Force said Monday.
"Missile shield elements, which are located in silos, are very vulnerable and have weak defenses," Lieutenant-General Igor Khvorov said. "Therefore, all aircraft deployed by [Russian] strategic aviation can either apply electronic counter-measures against them or physically destroy them."
Russia, which has been anxious about NATO bases that have appeared in former Communist-bloc countries and ex-Soviet republics, has blasted U.S. plans to deploy anti-missile systems in Central Europe as a national security threat and a destabilizing factor for Europe.
Anyway, as I said at the start of this I decided to look at the countries that possess these Ballistic missile threats as I was wondering just where the threats were coming from. Interesting but Confusing!
This table represents the Carnegie Non-Proliferation Project’s best assessment of the world's ballistic missile arsenals. The Project counts 35 nations as fielding some type of ballistic missile. Missiles reported to be in development are listed in italics. Endnotes and a key are provided below.
Please check them out but looking at the main prolferators of weapons we could realistically fear, USA, Russia, China, France, I realized that Bush is again full of shit and if we had someone to fear it is ourselves. We must protect ourselve's from ourselve's it seems!

Bush Pledges to investigate his actions whith the FBI, come on stop the idiocy, get real!

Bush pledges to Investigate his actions with the FBI, come on, stop the idiocy, get real, we knew Bush would abuse everything and is!
Bush pledged Saturday to quickly address findings that the FBI had illegally or improperly obtained private records during terrorism and espionage investigations. I mean, get real! He is not capable of an independent analysis, This should not be allowed. No one will be found guilty of anything and we know it.
Bush, visiting Uruguay on a Latin America tour, also insisted he had confidence in the FBI director, Robert Mueller, and Mueller's boss, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, despite a Justice Department report of FBI misconduct that has sparked a congressional outcry. Gonzales is a spineless mouthpiece of Bush's and would only speak up if he was forced to or Bush can feign innocence as is the case.
The report by Inspector General Glenn Fine's office sharply criticized the FBI for demanding, without a court order, customer records from telephone companies, Internet service providers, banks and credit card firms. Bush says he will address the problems as quick as possible.

That means on someone elses Presidency like everything elses watch right? He made a big show of being righteous and solving this quickly at a news conference with President Tabare Vázquez of Uruguay. but you know in reality there will only be a whitewash and no sarious heads will roll.
National security letters allow the FBI to compel the release of private information without getting authority from a judge or grand jury. The FBI can get the records but not the content of communications. they can open our mail, tap our communications, check anything they deem suspicious which means everyything that disagrees with Bush. Every right he has, has been dirtied and abused. Are we supposed to be stupid enough to think he will investigate "himself" and be honest about? How could he start now after a life time of lying to himself? The idiot will continue to have his way with us and the world. We are powerless to stop this idiot!

The practice of abuse and misuse has grown dramatically, mainly due to powers granted under the USA Patriot Act after the Sept. 11 attacks. Critics say the act allows law enforcement to trample on individual rights and they have. The 9/11 attacks were allowed to happen and were used to push through the Patriot Act starting a clampdown on citizens rights and the rights of the world so Bush could prosecute the new world order he is pushing for his handlers.

Democrats in Congress have vowed to investigate the findings, which came as they stepped up criticism of Bush's administration for weakening protections on civil liberties as part of its war on terrorism. I hate to tell them but the damage is done. Bush has too much power and he should have been trusted with none of it. You can't possibly think he will give it up or divulge its inproprieties.

Bush made the fucked up statement that the IG report which justly made issue of FBI shortfallings, also made it clear that these letters were important to the security of the United States. Just how the hell does it show that this is necessary to our security? It is only necessary for Bush to keep his abusive control over everyone.

The report found 26 possible violations, including requests for information without adequate authorization, improper requests under the law and unauthorized collection of telephone or e-mail records. You can bet Bush knew about this and sanctioned it but of course Bush did nothing wrong. Once again he is just a victim of the idiots he calls equals and surrounds himself with.

I am also disgusted that the piece of crap Gonzales said he was upset to learn the FBI did not have sufficient controls and failed to follow its own policies.

Isn't he supposed to ensure this crap is done right and wouldn't it be if Bush and Gonzales wanted it that way?

Israel warns its citizens to Immediately leave Egypt and Jordan, Is this a prelude to an Iran Attack?

Israel warns its citizens to immediately leave Egypt & Jordan, is this a prelude to an attack on Iran as Bush races to beat Congress?
I would assume this is a prelude to the attack on Iran. It's funny I did my post yesterday on the fact that Dems are going to tie the additional 100 billion Bush wants for his wars, to the withdrawal of our troops. But the idiot automatically vowed a veto. What an idiot! That would make him the guilty party of not funding the troops or so I thought. It is a stall and the idiot doesn't care as long as he stays the course and finds his excuse to attack Iran and further his so called new world order. He knows it does not matter what the Democrats do. They are powerless to stop him.
I had to laugh! I said the Dems are powerless to stop Bush and they will not. Anyway I said setting a deadline on withdrawal would only serve to give you an attack date for Iran. Bush will move up the date to attack Iran and beat them at their game. you know, we talked about this before too but I wrote many times that Israel would attack Iran and Bush would be forced to have to come to their rescue as he wants. This just verifies that Bush is going to attack Iran and no one will stop please tell me what you think of thie move?
Israel has warned its citizens to immediately leave Egypt and Jordan, the only Arab states with which it has full ties, out of concern they could come under attack, a government official said on Wednesday.
The advisory was issued on the recommendation of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Counter-terrorism Unit, which this week placed Egypt and Jordan in its highest threat category, alongside enemy states such as Iran, Syria and Lebanon.
Israeli officials gave no further details. Israeli-Egyptian relations were strained this month over allegations that Israel's armed forces massacred Egyptian prisoners during the 1967 Middle East War. Israel denies it. `
Israel has long urged its citizens to avoid resorts in the Egyptian Sinai, where militants have carried out several suicide bombings. The new advisory made clear that Israelis should consider all parts of Egypt unsafe until further notice. Jordan has a large Palestinian population, which has been aggrieved by Israeli crackdowns on a 6 1/2-year-old Palestinian uprising in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
In light of the fact that I have been saying right from the beginning that attacking Iran was one of Bush's original goals in the plan for new middle east and world order and that he would use the excuse of having to come to Israel's rescue to, to attack Iraq. I have to ask your help with a couple of questions.
First, we have been talking for quite a while now that the world expects Bush's attack on Iran to be an April! You know he is not going to let Congress get in his way and he will find his excuse to attack Iran before Congress can get in his way.
Can Bush use the excuse of coming to Israel's aid and thereby go around Congress to attack Iran.? You know he is not going to relent. Also, do you think that Isael telling its citizens to immediately leave Jordan and Egypt, the only twoArab States with which it has full ties, is a prelude to the upcoming attack on Iran? Unbelievable!

Emergency spending Bill tied to Iraq withdrawal, Bush Promises veto, Wouldn't he be guilty of not supporting the troops?

Emergency spending Bill tied to Iraq Withdrawal, Bush promise's Veto, wouldn't he be the guilty party? Would anything stop him from staying the couse and attacking Iran??

I heard this earlier today but didn't think too much about it until I thought it over and realized what it would mean. I really have to laugh! You would now have a date for Bush's attack on Iran. I have to laugh when Democrats think they can stop anything. They are well intentioned but powerless. Bush will merely attack Iran before any stop date came into effect if it did. The only thing this is going to do is give you the date when Bush will attack Iran. I refuse to believe they think they are going to top the chief idiot from his plan for new world (dis) order.

Antiwar lawmakers Thursday called on colleagues in the House of Representatives to set a "clear timeline" for an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, challenging fellow Democrats to assume the political risk of ending the war.

In a press conference, members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Out of Iraq Caucus proposed legislation that would require Congress fully to fund the safe and secure withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by December 31, 2007.

The groups' proposal comes as the Democratic House leadership unveiled a measure that calls for the withdrawal of U.S. troops in Iraq by the fall of 2008 -- or by the end of this year if President Bush is unable to show the Iraqi government is meeting certain established benchmarks.

That's CNN, This is Fox's take!
In a direct challenge to President Bush's strategy for Iraq, The plan would have troops redeploying as early as July of this year but no later than March 2008, and full combat withdrawal by August 2008.

At the same time Senate Democrats were preparing their own bill with binding legislation that would require a withdrawal from Iraq to begin no less than 120 days After the legislation is enacted with the goal of redeployment by March 31, 2008."

The Senate legislation, built on the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group, lists three exceptions. The slim Democratic majority in the Senate reduces its chances of success.

The House legislation, to be attached to the $100 billion emergency supplemental war spending bill that Bush has requested to pay for ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, is the first of its kind to establish a specific timetable for the end of U.S. combat in the four-year-old war.

I absolutely love the idea of tying the supplemental war spending Bill to a troop withdrawal however with the chief idiot even under those conditions, threatening veto. Obviously, the administration would vehemently oppose and ultimately veto any legislation that looks like what was described today (on Thursday)," senior Bush adviser Dan Bartlett told reporters as the president traveled to Brazil.

With all the dates and conditions being bandied about I have to wonder if the issue can be tied up until it is too late to serve any purpose and I have to ask, the chief idiot really veto it? Isn't that cutting off your nose to spite your face? Wouldn't that make him the party that would be guilty of not funding the troops just so he can get his way?

When all is said and done what ever dates are agreed on if any. They will merely prove to be the benchmark of Bush to attack Iran which is the real reason Bush must stay in Iraq. I fully expect him to attack some time this year anyway so setting dates id worthless. He will attack Iran and if necessary move up the date to keep the Democrat's powerless to stop him.
