Good job George

GWB sent his boys to kill Iraqis until they submit. Iraqis refused to be occupied but only a portion amongst them fought the occupation to stand still. For George the kid, it won’t have matter who resisted the occupation. He said “bring em on” the resistance just has begun then. He taunted the occupied and ridiculed the leaders of Iraqis. He told them how they should live their lives, tortured them and killed them: 650,000 of them. It was an achievement. Today he was told 3000 of his boys has died. They are most likely from low income families who went to war for scholarship or to kill terrorists (Muslims). I am sure George the boy would look at the numbers and would say “for each troop killed there are 220 Iraqi men, woman, and kids that are eliminated”. It is great isn’t it? 220 terrorists for each troop? It is a great deal! Oh, by the way there are 2 million Iraqis already exiled, that should help too. Sooner or later George could empty Iraq from Iraqis just like his ancestors did …

The lynching of Saddam Hussein

By Gwynne Dyer
On Sunday, the sentence of death by hanging was pronounced on Saddam and two of his fellow defendants. He responded with a clearly rehearsed tirade – "Long live Iraq! Long live the Iraqi people! Down with the traitors!" – and then left the courtroom with a little smile playing on his face, as if he had won. Which he had, within the narrow confines of what remains possible for him.

On the Gallows, Curses for U.S. and ‘Traitors’

Thousands flock to see Saddam's grave

By several accounts, Saddam was calm but scornful of his captors, engaging in a give-and-take with the crowd gathered to watch him die and insisting he was Iraq's savior, not its tyrant and scourge.

"He said we are going to heaven and our enemies will rot in hell and he also called for forgiveness and love among Iraqis but also stressed that the Iraqis should fight the Americans and the Persians," Munir Haddad, an appeals court judge who witnessed the hanging, told the British Broadcasting Corp.

Another witness, national security adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie, told The New York Times that one of the guards shouted at Saddam: "You have destroyed us. You h…

Tyrant met his end with fortitude

SADDAM HUSSEIN met his death on the scaffold in Baghdad yesterday with fortitude and calm. It was an extraordinary, melodramatic end to a life of confrontation and defiance — a final performance to launch himself as a martyr.............
His last moments, face to face with death, were part of that same strategy. He knew Iraqis very well, and he knew what they liked in their leaders. The Saddam legend is only just beginning..............
Haddad had interrogated Saddam immediately after his capture, when he was still disoriented and deeply depressed. Now, he said, he expected Saddam to break down and perhaps plead for mercy when facing death. But nothing of the sort happened.
Instead, when one of the executioners shouted out “Long live Moqtada al-Sadr” — referring to the fiery young Shi’ite cleric who controls large parts of southern Iraq — Saddam replied with a contemptuous snort. As he was taken to the execution chamber he was chanting “God is great”..................
Now he is gone. The…

U.S. trainers prepare Ethiopians to fight

DIRE DAWA, Ethiopia — As soldiers of Ethiopia’s Christian government continued to rout Islamist militiamen in southern Somalia this week, 2nd Cpl. Wonderfraw Niguse celebrated his own victory on the parched scrublands of eastern Ethiopia hundreds of kilometers to the north.
Roughly 60 U.S. personnel reside at Hurso, most of them soldiers from the 1st Battalion of the 294th Infantry Regiment of the Guam Army National Guard. The guard unit is now on its third, yearlong rotation in the Horn of Africa, and is scheduled for a fourth.

Comments made by Saddam during trials

"I realize there is pressure on you and I regret that I have to confront one of my sons. But I'm not doing it for myself. I'm doing it for Iraq. I'm not defending myself. But I am defending you." — Dec. 5, 2005, speaking to judge at his first trial, for killings of 148 Iraqi Shiite Muslims from Dujail.

"I am not afraid of execution." — Dec. 5, 2005, nearly a year before he was sentenced to death.

"I'm not complaining about the Americans, because I can poke their eyes with my own hands." — Dec. 21, 2005, after accusing American guards of beating him.

"For 35 years I led you, and you say, 'Eject him?' ... For 35 years, I administered your rights." — Jan. 29, 2006, to chief judge who ordered Saddam be removed from the courtroom.

"Where is the crime? Where is the crime?" — March 1, after declaring he ordered trial of 148 Shiites who were eventually executed, because he suspected them of involvement in assassination …

Saddam buried in his home village

Tikrit, Dec 31: Saddam Hussein was buried before dawn on Sunday in his native village of Awja, near Tikrit in northern Iraq, the head of his tribe said.

In a sparsely attended ceremony in Awja, in the Tikrit region north of the capital, the former Iraqi leader was laid to rest in a family plot.

Ali al-Nida, head of the Albu Nasir tribe, told journalists the burial in a family plot took place in the early morning, less than 24 hours after the former President was hanged for crimes against humanity. His sons Uday and Qusay, killed by U.S. troops in 2003, are also buried in Awja.

His body was reportedly flown to Awja near Tikrit aboard a US aircraft and handed to clan leaders for burial.

Earlier, his family said the former Iraqi leader would be buried in Ramadi - a Sunni insurgent stronghold - citing security concerns.

US will be defeated in Afghanistan: Former CIA official

Washington, Dec 31: A former senior CIA operative who tracked Osama bin Laden for 10 long years foresees "an apparent American defeat in Afghanistan".

Michael Sheuer said the way ahead in Afghanistan and along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border "ultimately would lead to the defeat of US and NATO forces and the demise of the Karzai government".

Scheuer told the Daily Times in Washington that by failing to accomplish the only mission that had to be accomplished in Afghanistan, the US was now faced with a growing insurgency that probably already outnumbered the combined US-NATO forces.

Mullah Dadullah- America’s new Frankenstein in Afghanistan

http://www.zeenews.com/

Mullah Dadullah Akhund, the ruthless Taliban leader in charge of the militia’s campaign against NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in southern and eastern Afghanistan is fast becoming what Abu Musaib al Zarqawi had become for US forces in Iraq.

He shares many traits with Zarqawi, though unlike the slain al Qaeda Iraq chief, he is disabled, having lost one of his legs after stepping on a landmine in Herat in eastern Afghanistan in 1994 while battling the Ahmad Shah Masood led Northern Alliance.

He has a fondness for beheading his captives, and is feared by both his opponents and followers. He is also known to behead his followers who disobey him, but is still respected as a leader who can deal a crushing blow to his adversaries.

Deriving sadistic pleasure – by beheading captives – is not the only trait Mullah Dadullah shares with Zarqawi.

He churns out propaganda DVD’s encouraging scores of suicide bombers and fighters to participate in the bloody …

'He is already history'

In this remarkable dispatch, Ghaith Abdul-Ahad, one of the few journalists who can still move freely about Baghdad, watches the execution with Sunni insurgents

Ghaith Abdul-Ahad

Observer

In a small, bare living room in Baghdad, two Sunni mujahideens, Abu A'isha and his friend Abu Hamza, sat mesmerised. The Shia-controlled state TV was showing the final moments of the life of their former leader, the noose being tightened around his neck. Saddam was dressed in a black coat, his black dyed hair pushed to the back, his hand and legs shackled. Men in civilian clothes and ski masks helped him up a small ladder. A trap door surrounded by a metal rail could be seen.
Saddam appeared a little confused and exchanged a few words with his masked hangman, who gestured at his neck. Saddam nodded and the hangman wrapped a black piece of cloth around his neck.

'They killed him, is that possible?' Abu Hamza, a muscled Sunni insurgent in his early thirties asked in disbel…

A gift for Iraqis from George

Eid al Adha gift for Sunnis.

Eid al Adha gift for Shiites and Kurds.

Saddam compliant, calm in final moments

Munir Haddad, an appeals court judge who witnessed the hanging, told the British Broadcasting Corp. that Saddam was not sedated.

"Not at all, Saddam was normal and in full control," Haddad said. "He was aware of his fate and he knew he was about to face death. He said 'This is my end, this is the end of my life, but I started my life as a fighter and as a political militant so death does not frighten me.'"

"They put his feet in shackles and he was taken upstairs to the gallows," Haddad said. "He was reciting, as it was his custom, 'God is great' and also some political slogans like 'down with the Americans' and 'down with the invaders.'

"He said we are going to Heaven and our enemies will rot in hell and he also called for forgiveness and love among Iraqis but also stressed that the Iraqis should fight the Americans and the Persians."

US Backs Ethiopian Invasion of Somalia

ENA
Addis Ababa

Ethiopia has genuine security concerns and intervened at the request of the Somali legitimate government, the U.S. government said.

The United States has defended Ethiopia's action saying it has genuine security concerns and has intervened at the request of the country's legitimate government, the TFG, VOA reported yesterday.


It quoted Acting State Department Spokesman Gonzalo Diego as saying that Ethiopia started its military operation in Somalia in response to aggression by the fundamentalist militiamen.

"The US continues to urge the Ethiopian government exercise maximum restraint in intervening a responding development in Somalia and to ensure the protection of civilians," he said.

The Black Bull died today

By Mirza Yawar Baig

12/30/06 "Information Clearing House"-- -- They did it. They gave this Ummah a sacrifice on the day of Eid ul Adha. What an unforgettable Eid!! A human sacrifice. Not a sheep or goat. What a message!! Wow!! What a powerful message that I am sure has shaken all the thrones of the puppets who are watching the events. Poor puppets!!

The Other War in Ethiopia

The world is watching Ethiopia's war with the totalitarian Islamist regime in Somalia. The world should also start paying attention to the campaign of genocide which the Ethiopian government has been waging against its own people, in southwestern Ethiopia, in the state of Gambella.

Today, the Anuak are being exterminated, while the central government of Ethiopia tells the world to ignore the violence, claiming that it is merely an inter-tribal conflict.

Gambella is in southwestern Ethiopia, bordering Sudan. It is been the home of five ethnic groups: the Anuak, Nuer, Majangir, Opo and Komo. The Anuaks and the Nuer are the largest groups and have long feuded over the land and its resources. The Anuaks, who live atop gold and oil reserves, number approximately 150,000.

A mainly agricultural people, the majority of Anuak inhabit Gambella, although some live in eastern Sudan, and some have recently been displaced to Kenya and the US. Gambella also hosts UN refugee camps, for people who…

George (THE CRIMINAL) Bush gave Muslims a gift: Saddam’s lynching.

First I followed the news on al Jazeera TV live waiting the news about the hanging of Saddam by Americans (through their new servants like Saddam was once) it was 9:00pm (CT) when news came that he was hanged. To me it was theatrical. The majority of Shiites and Kurdish people would like to see Saddam hanged but those people don’t realize the American made movie wasn’t about justice at all. People get fooled all the time though. The video that showed Saddam walking, talking and listening to the executioners doesn’t show a frightening man at all.
A lesson not learned however. Today’s executioners of the former Iraqi leaders could have the same fate tomorrow.

U.S. Should Not Support Ethiopia’s Invasion of Somalia

"Alas, there are no good guys in this war. Ethiopian President Meles Zenawi is a nasty piece of work. He has been a darling of the United States ever since the Clinton Administration’s time, when he was hailed as being part of the “African renaissance.” The war on terror has drawn Zenawi, a Christian leader of a religiously mixed but Christian-dominated country, closer to the Bush Administration. African renaissance man or not, he has been ruthless in his exercise of power. For instance, Ethiopian security forces killed nearly fifty people in November 2005 in a crackdown on protests. They also arrested thousands, including politicians, journalists, and activists."

"In fact, opposition groups speculate that Ethiopia’s invasion has less to do with the threat from its neighbor and is more an attempt to unite the country around the leadership of the unpopular Zenawi regime. Somalia and Ethiopia have been at loggerheads for a long time, and fought a full-fledged war in 1977. …

To the Iraqi Expatriate Celebrants in Dearborn, Michigan

by Linda Milazzo

Tonight in Dearborn Michigan, Iraqi expatriates have taken to the streets to celebrate the hanging of Saddam Hussein. As a non-Iraqi who values the lives of the people living in Iraq today, I have a message for these celebrants:

If you truly believe, as you have stated to American media, that Saddam's hanging justifies the deaths of 650,000 innocent Iraqis under the regime of George W. Bush, you are neither lovers of Iraq nor lovers of Iraqis.

Shame on you!

The death of one man cannot justify the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi men, women and children who survived Saddam, but perished under George W. Bush.

Shame on you for celebrating in the safety of your comfortable Michigan neighborhoods while the people still living in your "beloved homeland" are subjected to car bombs, abduction and torture every day.

As you celebrate your retribution, do so visualizing the faces of your dead and maimed compatriots who have perished since March 20, 2003... …

Iraq poll: U.S. troops departure is asset

Baghdad Burning

"This is because now, Saddam no longer represents himself or his regime. Through the constant insistence of American war propaganda, Saddam is now representative of all Sunni Arabs (never mind most of his government were Shia). The Americans, through their speeches and news articles and Iraqi Puppets, have made it very clear that they consider him to personify Sunni Arab resistance to the occupation. Basically, with this execution, what the Americans are saying is "Look- Sunni Arabs- this is your man, we all know this. We're hanging him- he symbolizes you." And make no mistake about it, this trial and verdict and execution are 100% American. Some of the actors were Iraqi enough, but the production, direction and montage was pure Hollywood (though low-budget, if you ask me)."

The trials of occupation

"The invasion and occupation of Iraq was an act of US imperialism, marketed as a war of liberation. Iraq was chosen ahead of Iran or Syria because it had been weakened by 13 years of sanctions. It provided the opportunity to station US bases in the Middle East, and a vantage point to monitor Iran. Control of the massive oil reserves was not to be sniffed at, either. It was assumed that Iraqis' distaste for Saddam would somehow make occupation acceptable."

Ethiopia urged to leave Somalia

The African Union has called on Ethiopia to withdraw thousands of troops from Somalia immediately.
The call, supported by the Arab League and the east African grouping IGAD, comes after Ethiopia intervened to support Somalia's interim government.

When Iraqis Gave Up on Government

"This government failed on all the promises it made to Iraqis, and so all Iraqis want it changed," Muhammad Basher al-Faidhy, spokesman for the Sunni Association of Muslim Scholars, told IPS. "They are sorry they ever took part in the elections. Our Association warned Iraqis that this government would be the worst ever. They simply cannot get rid of death squads because they are their major ally."

In Somalia, a reckless U.S. proxy war

"NAIROBI: Undeterred by the horrors and setbacks in Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon, the Bush administration has opened another battlefront in the Muslim world. With full U.S. backing and military training, at least 15,000 Ethiopian troops have entered Somalia in an illegal war of aggression against the Union of Islamic Courts, which controls almost the entire south of the country.

As with Iraq in 2003, the United States has cast this as a war to curtail terrorism, but its real goal is to obtain a direct foothold in a highly strategic region by establishing a client regime there. The Horn of Africa is newly oil-rich, and lies just miles from Saudi Arabia, overlooking the daily passage of large numbers of oil tankers and warships through the Red Sea. General John Abizaid, the current U.S. military chief of the Iraq war, was in Ethiopia this month, and President Hu Jintao of China visited Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia earlier this year to pursue oil and trade agreements."

Talk about Somalia becoming a racing ground between Eritrea and Ethiopia

Talk about Somalia becoming a racing ground between Eritrea and Ethiopia emanates from ignorance about the real situation in Somalia: President Isaias
By Staff
Dec 27, 2006, 16:56


Asmara, 27 December 2006 – President Isaias Afwerki said that talk about Somalia becoming a racing ground between Eritrea and Ethiopia emanates from ignorance about the real situation in Somalia. He made the statement in an interview with Aljazeera TV today.

Stating that the current situation in Somalia is the result of the intervention of foreign forces, particularly Ethiopia, the President noted that the Somali people are facing challenges in their home-grown popular struggle to achieve peace and stability after the experience they had acquired from the past 15 years.

Indicating that relations between the peoples of Eritrea and Somalis are rooted in brotherhood, good-neighborliness, and common struggle stretching over a period of more than a century, President Isaias pointed out that Eritrea respects the aspir…

Ethiopian, TFG Forces routing international terrorist forces in and around Baidoa: PM Meles

Addis Ababa, December 27, 2006 - Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said Ethiopian forces and the forces of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia have broken the back of international terrorist forces in and around Baidoa, and the latter are now in full retreat.
Meles said the main forces that the Ethiopian defense forces and that of the TFG faced particularly around Baidoa were not Somali forces as such. “They were Eritrean troops, international terrorists and some elements of the so-called Shabab," Meles said in a press conference he gave to local and international journalists here on Tuesday.

“Our commanders have got the list of international terrorists, people outside of Somalia who were wounded and being treated at a hospital in the town of Diinsoor when the town was occupied,” Meles said.

“Not only did we get the names of those Eritreans, but the list of names of people who carry British Passports. So when we talk about international terrorists, we mean internationa…

War against Muslims

Just recently, as I was listening to my car radio, a CNN newscast came on to report that an American soldier had been killed in Iraq by a “terrorist sniper.” By definition, however, the shooting of a soldier occupying a foreign country – though horrible on a human level – is not an act of “terrorism,” since no civilians are involved.
By waving the loaded word “terrorism” around, however, the U.S. news media helped the Bush administration misrepresent the threat facing U.S. troops in Iraq and elsewhere.


The writer incorporated many relevant topics on Bush’s terror war. He didn’t quite say it as he should have: the war GWB started was a war on Islam and Muslims in general. Lebanon, Palestine, Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan are not just happened to be accidental; instead, it is well orchestrated attempted to deprive Muslims technologies which could improve the lives of 1.2 billion Muslims in the world. Now Iraq is destroyed, Palestine blockaded and starved, Afghanistan divided to …

How much does it cost?

How much does it cost? The Army estimates that every 10,000 additional soldiers will cost about $1.2 billion a year. AND ON THE OTHER HAND,
elementary and secondary schools are losing 1.2 billion dollars currently in 2006.
So America is spending money taken away from the poor and middle income family thereby enriching the wealthy! The future generation will ask Where we were when the criminal gangs of democrats and republicans destroy the country’s wealth led by the chief criminal George W.

The "Gaza-Solution" and the Ongoing War on Islam

By Mike Whitney

11/28/06 "Information Clearing House" -- - - “People do not forget. They do not forget the death of their fellows, they do not forget torture and mutilation, they do not forget injustice, they do not forget oppression, they do not forget the terrorism of mighty powers. They not only don’t forget; they also strike back.” Harold Pinter, Nobel Laureate

"The central tenet of American foreign policy hasn’t changed since the early 1980s when Secretary of State Henry Kissinger summarized our involvement in the Iraq-Iraq War saying, “I hope they kill each other.” Kissinger’s dictum reveals the basic racial and religious odium which animates the current policy and has become the organizing principle for maintaining the global empire.

Now that the Muslim world has been systematically ravaged from the southern-most part Gaza to the northern tip of Afghanistan, we can see that the application of the Kissinger Doctrine is an effective method for decimating societies …

A good Jew Message.

"Mr. Editor, you and the cowardly cabal behind you can ban and vilify me, but as long as I have breath I will continue to protest against Israel's fascist-style brutality and declare 'Not in my name' in the interest of the true values of Judaism and humanity and in support of justice and security for all Christians, Jews and Muslims in the Middle East and further afield."

Terrorists’ message.

"Stand like one man ... and cut their (Shi'ites') throats, spill their blood, burn the ground underneath them, and rain bombs on them," said the speaker, who said he was the official spokesman of "the Islamic state in Iraq"

Ethiopia (Corruption and Unemployment)

"It seems everywhere that there is corruption to a certain degree. Before the government tries to tackle the issue, it is much wiser to identify the root causes of the problem. In a city where 100 kgs of Teff is costing 530 Birr, it is unrealistic to assume a government officer to live with a 400 Birr salary, feeding himself and his family. In order to feed his family, it is expected that the officer will do anything to cover the skyrocketing living costs. So, before a government employee steals materials from his office or a police officer or judge drugs himself to a corruption the government should try to balance employee’s salary with the living costs. It is important to tell you a real story that has happened to a police officer that tried to free a convicted driver after receiving some sums of money. When he was confronted by the high ranking officials that were inside the car and who were also familiar to the police officer, he didn't apologize for what he did, ins…

US staying the course for Big Oil in Iraq

"Once again, it's the oil. The Bush-Cheney system by all accounts went to Iraq to grab those fabulous reserves. The only way for an overall solution to the Iraqi tragedy would be for the Bush administration to give up the oil - with no preconditions, turning the US into an honest broker. Realpolitik practitioners know this is not going to happen. "

Pinochet's CIA secrets

"The assassination of Orlando Letelier and his American assistant two miles from the White House prompted demands for explanations and helped expose what President Nixon, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and a series of CIA officials tried for years to conceal: U.S support for a military dictatorship that was killing thousands of its own citizens."

Somalia is in the final push to eject the invading Ethiopian Army

"The premier of Ethiopia in his part to rationalize his tyrannical attitude accuses the U.I.C. of Somalia as “terrorist,” because it is an Islamic organization. He blames Somalis for being friends with Eritrea; blames Somalis for the opposition he is facing from the vast majority of his own population; He blames Somalis for the armed struggle of the “ONLF” the “OLF” the “EPPA” “CUD” etc… "

Zenawi’s hubris, risks & high stakes in the Somalia’s war

Another important sign of growing isolation of both Zenawi and Yusuf is neither man controls his country’s capitals in real sense. Zenawi lost the capital to the opposition in the May 15 parliamentary elections and is reportedly spend most of his times out side the capital as a security precaution. Yusuf have avoided even going to his country’s capital to establish his government there after he was selected by the interim parliament convened in Nairobi, another country’s capital. The leaders of the UIC have taken the capital of Somalis, restored the airport, public services, law and order, and other basic services while both Yusuf and Zenawi become isolated from their populations and deeply relying on their army forces and international support to sustain their rules. Such political bases the two leaders are relying are unsustainable and do not last governments in any event for a foreseen future in a bloody conflict they are initialing.

Muslims are bad 1

Whether you think it’s pandering to xenophobes or a rallying cry for Christian patriots, a series of attacks against Muslims and Islam in the U.S. have been rebuffed by the attackers’ compatriots on the right. Many of these attacks have centered on Minnesota’s Representative-elect Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to U.S. Congress, and on Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., a rising star in the Democratic caucus whose middle name is the only manifestation of his father’s Muslim background

Muslims are bad

Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) issued a letter to constituents earlier this month in which he declares, “I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States” if we do not adopt “strict immigration policies.”

And the Truth shall set you Free...

Condi Rice , yesterday in an interview , said that American "investment" in Iraq was worth it in terms of lives and dollars. An eerie reminiscence of M.Albright famous quote "The price was well worth it." Chilling !
But I really need to laugh out loud here...
What an amazing people !
You have been royally defeated . It is as clear as day light.
Yet you are adamant about hanging in there. Just a little bit more , just a little longer.
Send more troops, send more mercenaries, pump more of "our" petrodollars in - You are still defeated.
Torture, rape, steal, kill, massacre - You are still defeated.
The writing is on the wall . What is it about D.E.F.E.A.T you can't understand?
The beast in his last throes , struggling for breath ?
Let me laugh some more...

It is not simply a question of saving face. This is only one level of the Truth.
It is not only about Oil . You are so hooked on the Oil theory, you will be drinking the damn thing soon.
It is not only about geo-s…

Shiite Cleric Won't Support Coalition

"Iraq's most revered Shiite cleric withheld support Saturday for a U.S.-backed plan to build a coalition across sectarian lines, Shiite lawmakers said, jeopardizing hopes that such a show of political unity could help stem the country's deadly violence.

Members of the United Iraqi Alliance, the Shiite coalition that dominates parliament, met with Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani in Najaf after traveling to the holy city over the past few days. Al-Sistani holds no political post and rarely emerges from his home and adjacent office, but he has strong influence over Shiite politics."

How Bush can make Iraq disappear

"See how easy it is to make a problem go away? When Congress started asking questions about FBI malfeasance exposed by whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds, the administration retroactively classified congressional briefings on the subject. When it looked like lawyers representing Guantanamo detainee Majid Khan might make a fuss about the abusive "alternative" interrogation methods he had undergone in secret CIA prisons, the administration announced that Khan couldn't meet with his lawyers to tell them about his treatment because his treatment was itself classified top secret."

Unsustainable occupation

The Iraqi resistance forces have many reason to fight American occupiers and their puppets, among the reasons is they are illegally occupied! Despite American Media, government and criminal entities manipulations of that fact, many occupation troops know that fact as well.
“I don't like the way they fight, but I'd do the same thing if someone was occupying my country," said Cpl. Sean J. Egger, also part of the 1st Battalion, 37th Armor Regiment.
Egger was the gunner atop a Humvee near Ramadi's defunct train station in August. The bullet whizzed past him by inches but struck his machine gun, sending shrapnel into his face.
Safety glasses spared his vision, but Egger will need surgery after he leaves Iraq to remove a half dozen pieces of shrapnel still lodged in his face.

My believe is, Iraqi resistance will not let-up its resistance until there is no more occupation.
If America dreams that it would go around the world and slap people down and humiliate them; if they th…

Anglican head slams Britain and U.S. over Iraq

"The spiritual head of the Anglican Church launched an outspoken attack on the British and U.S. governments on Saturday, saying their "ignorant" policy in Iraq has put Christians in the region at risk."

It is the criminals GEORGE and TONY who spread terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, destabilizing the world costing lives and pouring in billions of dollars which could have rather been spent on developments. The terrorist killers now created sectarian war as well in Iraq which saw hundreds killed everyday. The worst thing is, it was mostly George who created all that yet his goal to subjugate people didn’t succeed.

Christian Zionism

The Christian Zionists hate peace more than anything else. For them peace in the Middle East means that Jesus is not coming soon. There has to be war in the Middle East (how many times did we have war so far? hum), the Jews has to defeat Muslims. Muslims need to be driven out of their home in order to realize the coming of Jesus and the end of the world …. Oh did I mention the slaughter of Jews by Christians unless they converted to Christianity? So much for teaching love.

An interview with Khaled Meshaal

.....................
RR: But what about the reproach of religious fanaticism?

KM: That is easy to refute. If Hamas was a movement of religious fanatics, it wouldn't have been elected by the Palestinian people, because in Palestine there are many groups. And there are also Christians, who work together with us. For instance, one of the members of parliament in Gaza who was elected on the Hamas list is a Christian doctor. And the majority of Muslims and Christians gave him their vote. The fact is that the ideas of Hamas are moderate. We practice tolerance with everybody. And we deal with Muslims and Christians at the same level. And on this level we deal with everybody, either religious, liberal, or secular, either inside or outside of Palestine. And we have relations within the Middle East but also in Europe and Africa. Hamas is an open movement. We do not combat Israel because they are Jews but because they are occupying our land.

Powell, Baker, Hamilton – Thanks for Nothing

Hours after the report's release on Dec. 6, Baker told PBS NewsHour host Jim Lehrer that the blue-ribbon commission was calling for a long-term U.S. military presence: "So our commitment – when we say not open-ended, that doesn't mean it's not going to be substantial. And our report makes clear that we're going to have substantial, very robust, residual troop levels in Iraq for a long, long time."

General Reveals Residual Neocon-Likudnik Haunting at Pentagon

"For the neocons, it was not enough last month when Bush compared Iran to al-Qaeda. Forget the rhetoric, say the neocons. Bomb Iran, now. Of course, this is nothing new, as the Israel First neocons, at the behest of Likud-Kadima, the nationalist-religious parties, and the fanatical settler wing of the Israeli government, have called for mass murdering untold numbers in Iran for some time now."

Fascist watch

"Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich last night defended his call to limit freedom of speech to combat terrorism, comments that last month provoked strident criticism from liberal groups."
I am not shocked at all the liberals are ones that are expressing dismay over Newt’s fascistic view. Americans are fools; I believe they are blinded in to believing there is such a thing like “War on Terror”! Once you are stupid enough there is one; then, you would support your criminal leaders in power or out of power.
Why am I saying that Americans are fools? Because out of 40 or so people I work with, only 4 or 5 people have any interest in what their government is doing. Almost all of them have no understanding of the politics of Washington as well as whose agenda their elected officials are bidding. So it is easy for fools to believe there is “War on Terror,” “Muslims are the terrorists,” “it is ok to suspend their rights” next, let us put them in concentration camps or worst! I…

The US is opposed to unarmed demonstrations in Lebanon but supports armed demonstrations by Dahlan gangs in Palestine; the US does not deal with the president in Lebanon, and only deals with the president in Palestine; the US says that the Sanyurah government is democratically elected and should be supported, but opposes the democratically elected government in Palestine and calls for its punishment; the US calls for disarming of militias in Lebanon, but arms and finances militias in Palestine; the US is opposed to early elections in Lebanon, but supports early elections in Palestine; the US is opposed to a national unity government in Lebanon and also opposes one in Palestine--the idea of national unity bothers the US it seems; the US calls for Syria to not intervene in Lebanon but wants Syria to intervene in Palestine to support US/Israeli puppets; the US wants to punish assassins in Lebanon, but the US supports Israeli and Dahlan…
I have lost complete respect for Fattah. Fattah became the mouth piece of Israel, America and those people who imposed sanction against the Palestinians simply because they exercise their right in electing Hamas. Mahmoud Abbas is now officially accepting money from the enemy of Palestinian people in order to suppress them. He joined the Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Sinora and other Arab leaders accepting the humiliation of it is own people by occupiers and terrorists.

Police torture in Tennessee:

Practices perfected abroad -
Police torture in Tennessee: When Tennessee law enforcement officials showed up at the home of Lester Siler, who they suspected of drug use, they asked Lester's wife and son to leave. They didn't know that Lester's wife had turned on a tape recorder in the kitchen.

When Lester exercised his constitutional right not to sign a consent to search his house, these officers spent the next two hours torturing him. They beat him with bats and guns, held loaded guns to his head, threatened to shoot him, dunked his head in the toilet, burned him with lighters, attached his testicles to a battery charger, threatened to cut off his fingers, and threatened to "go get" his wife and take his child away from him. Then they arrested him for "evading arrest"."

You can hear nearly 40 minutes of the tape recording HERE.

Free Iraq

"By the way, what is the cost of these security guards, who are foreign mercenaries and whose average daily salary is $1,000 (for their blood is more expensive than Iraqi blood)?
278 members of parliament X 20 security guards each X $1,000 = $5,560,000 per day
37 ministers (11 of whom are shadow ministers, i.e. without any work) X 30 security guards X $1,000 = $1,100,000 per day
Hence, the total is $6,670,000 per day which comes to $2,473,520,000 per year (there are no holidays for security, you see)"

It Could Happen Here

By Gregory Meyerson and Michael Joseph Roberto

"11/27/06 "Monthly Review" A deepening crisis pervades Pax Americana and with it a rising interest in fascism and the fear that it may be coming or is already here. While some observers are alarmed at the prospects of fascism, others dismiss the topic as conspiracy theory or just plain rubbish. In the most absurd recent use of the term, George W. Bush has declared America at war “with Islamic fascists seeking to destroy freedom loving societies.” It is hard here not to invoke Huey Long’s famous idea that fascism would come to America clothed as anti-fascism."

Flirting With Fascism on CNN Headline News

For those who believe there isn’t wide spread fascism and agitation of anti Muslim attack in America, you better wake up! CNN, just like FOX News, is ramping up attacks against Muslims under the disguise of freedom of speech. Believe me, freedom of speech is not freedom of propaganda to hate, isolate and throw people into confusion. What comes after that is already seen: torture, illegal imprisonment, invasion, abuse and loss of freedom. This type of propaganda will be instrumental for Muslim haters to justify any attack against them already underway since Osama’s group attack the new York buildings and the Pentagon which kills almost three thousands people. Compare that to Iraq? What about three thousand people a month? What about 650,000 people? How did that happen? Ask American networks: CNN, FOX, ABC NEWS… people are only following what they are told, they elect what they are told, believe what they are told! Muslims are enemies of America, killing them would be justified, invadin…

Ethiopian dictator

Another dictator the US support and encourage: Ethiopia. A country invaded Somalia, refused to abide by UN decision to resolve the border war which cost thousands of lives and money, cracked down on opposition, slaughtered demonstrators, jailed opposition party leaders and encouraged ethnic division to stay in power by weakening the unity of the country,
This morning antiwar.com posted this: …Mr Zenawi has turned Ethiopia into a police state. Many of the opposition are in prison on trumped-up charges carrying the death penalty. Tens of thousands of young Ethiopians were sent to prison camps after last year’s poll. A few still languish there; others have fled abroad. Several judges have defected, fearing for their safety.
The press has been crushed, foreign correspondents expelled and many journalists and editors put in jail. The government has hired foreign specialists to help it shut down dissident websites, tap telephones and track e-mails. …

Good riddance Pinochet

Once the U.S man Pinochet died before he got punished for his crime. I don’t think a lot of people know this criminal came to power in a bloody coup after Richard Nixon put economic pressure on Salvador Allende who was elected overwhelmingly by Chilean people. It is something the world community should know that the Palestinians elected their leaders but America keeping with its tradition sabotaged the Hamas government and the Prime Minister Ismael Haniya to overthrown by Mahmoud Abbas the PLO leader.
Good riddance Pinochet I would like to say go to hell.
Augusto José Ramón Pinochet Ugarte[1] (November 25, 1915 – December 10, 2006) was a general and President of Chile. He led the military junta to power in 1973 through a coup d'etat, deposing the democratically elected President Salvador Allende. He was president of the Republic from 1974 to 1990 (1981 to 1990 under the Constitution of 1980). He died of heart failure on December 10, 2006.

An Iraqi National Initiative to End the Occupation of Iraq .......

An Iraqi National Initiative to End the Occupation of Iraq Reflecting the Will and View of the Iraqi National Resistance and the Other Major Political Forces Opposing the Occupation




Proposed Principles for

Dialogue and Agreement







1- A declaration by the American side of an unequivocal decision to withdraw fully from Iraq according to a short time-table of no more than six months. In consequence, all American, and other occupying contingents, should withdraw their forces from all Iraqi cities toward temporary and recognized military bases in agreement with the new Iraqi Government. These forces should not engage in any security or military operations during the time of their withdrawal. Furthermore, by the end of the six months period, all of these forces should have completed their withdrawal from those bases [in Iraq].



2- The Iraqi National Resistance will declare a ceasefire, while keeping their arms, until the final withdrawal of the American and the other national occupation forces hav…

RED ZONE IRAQ

Why is it every invading country officials going in and out of their colony Iraq crawling like a bug? Why are they calling their crawling “unannounced?” Or they call it “surprising visit?” why not calling it as it is? Isn’t it cowardly to crawl like a bug in the green zone? I don’t believe that they even believe it is a green zone any more; it is a red zone all around. I call that type of visitation crawling visit. When Donald became the Secretary of Defense Iraq was safe all around and as the whole; but now, when Donald leaves he turned the country upside down: it is bloody Iraq, it is red Iraq, and it is a RED ZONE IRAQ.

How Many More Will Die For Bush’s Ego?

By Paul Craig Roberts

12/09/06 "Information Clearing House"

"To date the cost of Bush being wrong is 25,000 US casualties (dead and wounded) and approximately 650,000 dead Iraqis. No one knows how many have been wounded. How many more will die before America drowns in the shame of the blood that is being shed for no other reason than the American people were so stupid as to elect a president who cannot admit that he made a mistake? The same stupid American people elected a Congress that is too corrupt to impeach a president who is a liar, a war criminal, and a tyrant. Instead, they are prepared to let Bush off with a mere “mistake,” a courtesy denied to President Clinton. Lying about sex is an impeachable offense. Lying about war is a mere mistake."

"This disastrous war is a testament to the irresponsibility of the American people and their elected representatives. There were, of course, many dissenters. But the majority were too lazy and irresponsible to take th…

Today Donald Rumsfeld went to Iraq to say goodbye to his comrades in crime.

Today Donald Rumsfeld went to Iraq to say goodbye to his comrades in crime. I just wanted to remind him as George’s executioner he has a blood of more than half a million people in his hand; he has a record of running torture chambers throughout the world; I wanted to remind him the cold blooded murder of people of Iraqis and Afghanis and many other nationalities under his command will follow him until dies. Donald will go down as one of incompetent and criminal shameless scum who never regret or apologized for his six year tenor which saw nothing but blood bath. All that grin arrogant behavior will be wiped out when he meets the lord of the world after death. I hope him and his earthly master George of the Whitehouse will hold hands in front of the master of the world confess all their major sins they have committed and receive their rewards accordingly. Amen.

Carter: Speaking Frankly about Israel and Palestine

JIMMY CARTER was the 39th president of the United States. His newest book is "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," published last month. He is scheduled to sign books Monday at Vroman's in Pasadena.

I signed a contract with Simon & Schuster two years ago to write a book about the Middle East, based on my personal observations as the Carter Center monitored three elections in Palestine and on my consultations with Israeli political leaders and peace activists.

We covered every Palestinian community in 1996, 2005 and 2006, when Yasser Arafat and later Mahmoud Abbas were elected president and members of parliament were chosen. The elections were almost flawless, and turnout was very high - except in East Jerusalem, where, under severe Israeli restraints, only about 2% of registered voters managed to cast ballots.

The many controversial issues concerning Palestine and the path to peace for Israel are intensely debated among Israelis and throughout other nations - but not in the…
