no end to iraq

April 13, 2008


The Iraqi government has just fired 1,300 army and police personnel, for not performing up to par, if at all, during the recent offensive ordered by the country’s prime minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki in Basra. You can hardly blame them for not wanting to fight. The offensive was reportedly so haphazardly planned that it turned […]

July 9, 2007


Should the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi be worried? Prominent war activist Cindy Sheehan says she would run against Pelosi in California, with an eye on unseating her, if Pelosi doesn’t start action to impeach President George W. Bush. Sheehan’s not fooling around. She has given Pelosi a two-week deadline, July 23, the same […]

lies and iraq

June 3, 2007


It’s amazing that Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about his personal life when it really affected no one outside of his family, while Bush goes on free to wreak more havoc, even as close to 4,000 Americans lives have been lost, over half a million Iraqis had perished, and billions of dollars flushed down […]
