THE TRAGEDY OF IRAQ: Deliberate destruction of Iraqi civilian infrastructure by US bombing in the First Gulf War, along with US-backed economic sanctions, caused hundreds of thousands to die from treatable diseases and malnutrition. Most vulnerable as always were children, women, and the old. The recent conflict has wrought near-apocalyptic results upon the infrastructure.... “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” —Senior adviser to President Bush, 2002.

All Grandiose "empires" implode/explode eventually. And the bring em on ......Iraq fiasco might be the first symptom of this empire wanna be dissolution.

Empires don't care about life and human beings........all they care about is POWER. Such is their greed. and such is their eventual failing.

Meanwhile the poor Iraqi population is torn apart, devestated , keep burying their dead and coping with their maimed. No one gives a damn about them. All they care about is what they are "giving " them ........in theory . The REALITY Is a horror story of this decade.

No one cares that the Iraqis Grieve too. No one cares as to how their lives have been destructively disrupted. Particularly those "amerikans" who are so deluded as to their power , they have broken contact with reality ........and now live in a fantasy world.

That sounds like a cue for a song ... altogether, now:

The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range

You have a natural tendency
To squeeze off a shot
You're good fun at parties
You wear the right masks
You're old but you still
Like a laugh in the locker room
You can't abide change
And you're home on the range
You opened the suitcase
Behind the old workings
To show off the magnum
You deafened the canyon
A comfort, a friend
Only upstaged in the end
By the Uzi machine gun
Does the recoil remind you
Remind you of sex?
Old man what the hell you gonna kill next?
Old timer, who you gonna kill next?

I looked over Jordan and what did I see?
Saw a U.S. Marine in a pile of debris
I swam in your pools
And lay under your palm trees
I looked in the eyes of the Indian
Who lay on the Federal Building steps
And through the range finder over the hill
I saw the front line boys popping their pills
Sick of the mess they find on their desert stage
And the bravery of being out of range
Yeah the question is vexed
Old man what the hell you gonna kill next?
Old timer who you gonna kill next?

"Hey bartender, over here
Two more shots
And two more beers
Sir, turn up the TV sound
The war has started on the ground"
Just love those laser guided bombs
They're really great for righting wrongs
You hit the target, win the game
From bars 3,000 miles away
3,000 miles away
We play the game
With the bravery of being out of range
We zap and maim
With the bravery of being out of range
We strafe the train
With the bravery of being out of range
We gain terrain
With the bravery of being out of range
We play the game
With the bravery of being out of range

Very appropriate peapod, ocean breeze, Henry.

Here a bit of the rest of it................btw, I fixed the link.



THE TRAGEDY OF IRAQ
: Arab League Chief Condemns Insurgent Violence. The head of the Arab League on Thursday strongly condemned insurgent violence in Iraq, trying to overcome suspicion of the pan-Arab body from the country’s Shiite and Kurdish leaders on his first visit since the fall of Saddam Hussein. Secretary-General Amr Moussa is trying to organize a reconciliation conference among Iraq’s sharply divided Shiites, Kurds and Sunni Arabs, the first major intervention by the Arab League in the country’s relentless bloodshed. But he has faced reluctance from the Shiite and Kurdish leaders who lead the government, who have complained that the league has taken too long to seek a role, resent the league’s past support for Saddam, and are suspicious the mainly Sunni body is biased toward Iraq’s Sunni Arab minority.


THE TRAGEDY OF IRAQ:
Pre-War Assessment of the Effects of War on the Children of Iraq: OUR COMMON RESPONSIBILITY - The report examines the physical and mental well being of the 12 million Iraqi children based on data collected in Iraq between 20 and 26 January 2003. Perhaps the most startling findings are based on field data collected by two of the world's foremost child psychologists, who are leading experts on the psychological impact of war on children. They found that Iraqi children are suffering significant psychological harm due to the threat of war that is hanging over their head.


THE NEIGHBORS ARE WORRIED:
Arab League chief Amr Moussa, who has said Iraq is on the verge of civil war, held talks with Iraqi leaders on Thursday on a tough mission to promote national reconciliation in a country ravaged by violence. On his first postwar visit to Iraq, the former Egyptian diplomat met Prime Minister Ibrahim Jaafari and was also expected to hold talks with President Jalal Talabani and leading Shi'ite cleric Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani.

OR THEY MIGHT BE JUDGEMENTAL
: Iran thinks Saddam might be guilty. The preliminary charges against Hussein at the time of his July 2004 arraignment related to purported crimes against humanity committed during his Ba'ath Party's 35-year rule of Iraq. These charges reportedly relate to the 1990 invasion of Kuwait, the 1988 chemical attacks on Iraqi Kurds in Halabja, the 1974 intentional killing of Iraqi religious figures, the 1983 killing of Barzani clan members, the 1987-88 Anfal campaign against the Kurds, and the suppression of the Kurdish and Shi'ite uprisings in 1991. (And some of them think that western governments help Saddam out.) He claimed that although the initial chemical attacks on Iranians were ineffective, later ones had a bigger impact because of scientific and technical assistance from the West.


WAR PIMP ALERT: Rice won't rule out armed action against Syria, Iran


WAR PIMP ALERT
: Rice Declines to Give Senators Timeline for Iraq Withdrawal. (Not surprising in that they intend to never leave.) As Rice testified, former U.S. diplomat Mary Ann Wright stood up and shouted from the audience, "Stop the killing in Iraq. You and Congress have to be responsible." Wright, a senior envoy in the U.S. embassies in Afghanistan and Mongolia, resigned in protest in 2003.

I have a very simple question. Who is Abu-Musaab El-Zarqawi? Is he a person put in our minds so we come to believe that OBL infiltrated Iraq and running a holy war against America?

I've seen many pictures of him on the net and TV, but if they put Reverend Blair picture and told me that this guy in the picture is Zarqawi, I would believe he is.

Zarqawi has no name, place, nationality, religion, or even followers. He is a boogyman created in our minds by the US to give them excuse for killing and bombing and for creating the worst civil war yet to come.

I hope I am wrong, but I don't think so.

first.......nice to see ya back mog.

Second......truly, don't have a clue. For all we know he could be part of the US fantasy creation. As we all know now. ....the US NEEDS an enemy.(even if it has to be fabricated by the USC)......any enemy in order to fullfill its grandiose schemes and ambitions via the war machine. The USRegime cannot function without an enemy of some kind.

U.S. death toll in Iraq nears 2,000
Some expect momentum to grow for withdrawal of U.S. troops


Washington -- It's a grim milestone that no one wants to see come about, but the United States is nearing 2,000 military deaths in Iraq.

With public opinion polls showing that a majority of Americans favor a partial or total withdrawal from Iraq 32 months after President Bush launched an invasion to oust Saddam Hussein, experts and advocates disagree on whether the looming benchmark will further erode public or congressional support for the war that the president promises to continue until a successful conclusion.

Is all that death worth it "W"? I think not.

At the beginning of this unjustified war, most Americans approved of the war and the reasons behind it. Now after 2 years and a bit and almost 2000 military deaths, Americans are not approving of the war or the reasons that were behind it.

I tell the American people that they can't just pick and choose. Why now they flipped sides? Why now they are against the war? Not because they believe the war was unjustified but because they are seeing too many deaths of their own people for an unjustified war. If the war went the way Americans had wished it should go, no casualties or at least a little, they would have stayed in support of the war. This is the most obnoxious mentality in the world. They want to get everything for nothing, win a war without losing a soul, be a member of the UN with paying their dues and so on and so forth.

My 2 cents for the day.

mogh: you nailed it !! Most Users could care less about the losses and destruction THEIR invasion has caused. They just don't want anymore of their own "heros" hurt or killed. Sick mentality indeed.......... as no one has voiced ANY concern for all the Iraqis that the US has KILLED. or tortured , or burned or whatever destructiveness the US has demonstrated. Selfish bastards....and there is no other way of looking at it. Yet if one asks them "why" they supported the invasion..........they have no good answer. go figure. Fecking hypocrits. Flip floppers and other such adjectives in the same vein.

Ocean,

I am fed up with this wishy washy decisions americans have. No American ever mentioned that our soldiers should leave Iraq because we are causing a lot of deaths to the Iraqi people either by inciting more rebellion or by our unmerciful attacks on neighbourhoods. They say we should leave because the toll on our soldiers is too much. This is as you put it "hypocrite".

it is also extremely SELFISH, SELF CENTRED, and confirms that they could care less about the Iraqis as a people. If they don't want their troops killed then don't support an insane invasion to begin with. Reality is that 2000 is nothing compared to the number the US has KILLED. Of course they fail to include that in their equation....

Notice here Ocean that I changed my tone about the American war in Iraq. Before, I was trying to be polite and say its the US government that is supporting this illegal war. Now, I am saying that the whole American population is responsible. They had and still have a chance to stop their atrocities in other countries, but they still support their government action until they see the flagged coffins arriving. I blame the whole of America for their action. The government for being war hungry and the people for not doing enough to stop it.

well, from what we have seen to date ........they aren't too interested in stopping it , and were not interested in preventing it. With the exception of Cindy Sheehan and her troop. She is the only one that has visibly opposed . ...........but even then AFTER her son was killed.

Seems it has to hit home before they give a damn. They do have a fascination with WAR ......and war like activities. (would bet they make a production out of a Cock fight. And as long as they are esconced in their cocoon.......they could care less about who and how many are dying. When ONE Death in an uncalled for invasion is TOO much. They still live with the primitive mindset that young people DYING In war are "heros".......when in reality they are victims of the perpetrators of said wars.

This is true. When they started the war, they were fighting from the air. This were they excel. Hiding up there where nothing could reach them. They were bombing and killing and winning the war. But when the time came for them to go down to the ground, it hit them. It is not the same as a practice field in Texas. This is a street fight with their enemy who is more determined than they are to kill them. An enemy willing to kill himself to kill them. They were stunned but they shouldn't have. They would've learned this from Vietnam where they lost the war to their enemy who was the same, willing to fight them until death.

and of course the many Iraqis they killed, maimed could not be seen or counted.........but in reality they were never "winning" this war.........as it is not a war to be won in the traditional sense.... They had not been attacked by Iraq so this was not in self defense and out of true nec. Anyone can make someone they want something from into an enemy , and lie enough to aggressively attack them. Sick as it is.

One NEVER hears about how the REAL situation is in Iraq today.......and one is inclined to think that any Iraqi "interviewed" by the US is repeating a canned response.

Iraq was not an enemy , but thanks to the US regimes stupidy ....... they might become one in the future......and are hosting pleny of "enemies" with their borders now. Imagine what would happen if everyone that truly 'hated" the US migrated to Iraq and fought against the US. Dang..........we could be looking at another 100 yr war. All thanks to the bush stupidity.& GREED

Well now they are cooking the same lies to attack Iran and Syria. But I wonder why they are hesitating to attack North Korea? Real Nuclear power perhaps?
