WHY you ask, because Human-caused global warming is here — visible in the air, water and melting ice — and is destined to get much worse in the future, an authoritative global scientific report will warn next week.
From the report;
"The smoking gun is definitely lying on the table as we speak,"said top U.S. climate scientist Jerry Mahlman, who reviewed all 1,600 pages of the first segment of a giant four-part report. "The evidence ... is compelling."
Andrew Weaver, a Canadian climate scientist and study co-author, went even further: "This isn't a smoking gun; climate is a batallion of intergalactic smoking missiles."
The report is going to be rolled out in stages.
The first phase of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is being released in Paris next week. This segment, written by more than 600 scientists and reviewed by another 600 experts and edited by bureaucrats from 154 countries, includes "a significantly expanded discussion of observation on the climate," co-chair Susan Solomon a senior scientist for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. She and other scientists held a telephone briefing on the report Monday.
That report will feature an "explosion of new data" on observations of current global warming, Solomon said.
Solomon and others wouldn't go into specifics about what the report says. They said that the 12-page summary for policymakers will be edited in secret word-by-word by governments officials for several days next week and released to the public on Feb. 2. The rest of that first report from scientists will come out months later.
The full report will be issued in four phases over the year, as was the case with the last IPCC report, issued in 2001.
Global warming is "happening now, it's very obvious," said Mahlman, a former director of NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab who lives in Boulder, Colo. "When you look at the temperature of the Earth, it's pretty much a no-brainer."
Look for an "iconic statement" — a simple but strong and unequivocal summary — on how global warming is now occurring, said one of the authors, Kevin Trenberth, director of climate analysis at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, also in Boulder.
The February report will have "much stronger evidence now of human actions on the change in climate that's taken place," Rajendra K. Pachauri told the AP in November. Pachauri, an Indian climatologist, is the head of the international climate change panel.
An early version of the ever-changing draft report said "observations of coherent warming in the global atmosphere, in the ocean, and in snow and ice now provide stronger joint evidence of warming."
And the early draft adds: "An increasing body of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on other aspects of climate including sea ice, heat waves and other extremes, circulation, storm tracks and precipitation."
The world's global average temperature has risen about 1.2 degrees Fahrenheit from 1901 to 2005. The two warmest years on record for the world were 2005 and 1998. Last year was the hottest year on record for the United States.
The report will draw on already published peer-review science. Some recent scientific studies show that temperatures are the hottest in thousands of years, especially during the last 30 years; ice sheets in Greenland in the past couple years have shown a dramatic melting; and sea levels are rising and doing so at a faster rate in the past decade.
Also, the second part of the international climate panel's report — to be released in April — will for the first time feature a blockbuster chapter on how global warming is already changing health, species, engineering and food production, said
NASA scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig, author of that chapter.
As confident as scientists are about the global warming effects that they've already documented, they are as gloomy about the future and even hotter weather and higher sea level rises. Predictions for the future of global warming in the report are based on 19 computer models, about twice as many as in the past, Solomon said.
In 2001, the panel said the world's average temperature would increase somewhere between 2.5 and 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit and the sea level would rise between 4 and 35 inches by the year 2100. The 2007 report will likely have a smaller range of numbers for both predictions, Pachauri and other scientists said.
The future is bleak, scientists said.
"We have barely started down this path," said chapter co-author Richard Alley of Penn State University.
That is why;
Executives push Bush on climate change
The chief executives of 10 major corporations and business groups, on the eve of the State of the Union address, urged
President Bush on Monday to support mandatory reductions in climate-changing pollution and establish reductions targets.
"We can and must take prompt action to establish a coordinated, economy-wide market-driven approach to climate protection," the executives from a broad range of industries said in a letter to the president.
Bush, who in the past has rejected mandatory controls on carbon dioxide and other "greenhouse" gases, was expected to address climate change in his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, but has repeatedly argued that voluntary efforts are the best approach.
Major industry groups such as the Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers continue to oppose so-called "cap and trade" proposals to cut climate changing pollution, mainly carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels.
But the 10 executives, representing major utilities, aluminum and chemical companies and financial institutions, said mandatory reductions are needed and that "the cornerstone of this approach" should be a cap-and-trade system.
The officials, expected to elaborate on their plan at a news conference later Monday, include the chief executives Alcoa Inc., PB America Inc., DuPont Co., Caterpillar Inc., General Electric Co., and Duke Energy Corp.
In the letter they urged Congress to enact legislation "to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions."
The first days of the new Democratically controlled Congress has seen a rush of legislation introduced to address climate change, all of which have some variation of a cap-and-trade approach to dealing with climate change.
Among those pushing cap-and-trade climate bills are two leading presidential aspirants, Sens. Barack, D-Ill. and John McCain , R-Ariz.
Essentially such a mechanisms would have mandatory limits of greenhouse gas emissions, but would allow companies to trade emission credits to reduce the cost. Companies that can't meet the cap could purchase credits from those that exceed them or in some case from a government auction.
Also signing the letter to Bush were the executives of Lehman Brothers, PG&E Corp., PNM Resources, FPL Group and four leading environmental organizations.
Well, well, well, after fighting the very idea of Global Warming for years, because of losing an election and a new report, the reichwing masters are trying to usurp the movement to do something about Global warming. They backed Bush and the repugnant politicians as they totally ignored the looming problems for almost a decade, but with the change in the political weather, they are trying to get ahead of the coming storm and delay the coming political and industrial changes we will have to make in stages to prevent a incredible disaster in the end of this century ....
Too bad for mental midgets like Busboy, and the trolls here and elsewhere on the tubes, this report is gonna be hard to deny when major corporations accept it and are willing to accept even modest changes they fought intensely just last year. If they are this willing to compromise right now, they are not gonna like the swell of anger and demands for changes once the true depth of the problem gets out to the general public, and the people of this planet demand something more than a rich bottom line.
The reichwingnuts are about to go batshit insane and howl like banshees at this report , but too bad for them, they could have done something but they were just too ignorant and greedy, so they are being pushed aside so people who want more out of life than a rich bank account and more stock options can have a life worth living on a planet where that is possible.
An elderly man in Pennsylvania said in a newspaper comment, “They hung the wrong man” (talking about Saddam’s hanging), and this comment had the Secret Service on this 81 year old’s door step! We’ve all made this comment outloud, haven’t we? I know I have. Even the old man said this sentence can be taken in so many different ways because he wasn’t saying exactly who the other man was who deserved to be hung. Well, it’s implied, but he’s right when he says it could have been Osama bin Laden. Nahhhhhh, even George Bush doesn’t want to hang him!
I thought this article was a good way for us to start the day. ;-)

Who wants to bet that George W. Bush will have to have the first floating presidential library on the oceans of the Earth because the country he was the president of refuse to be associated with him or his rewriting of his time in office? I wonder how he feels about this knowing that his own Evangelicals are turning against him now? I would love to know!
Helicopter crashes that have taken the lives of our soldiers....
Here is a short chronology of the deadliest days for U.S. forces since the start of the war:
Nov 2 - Chinook helicopter shot down near Falluja. Sixteen U.S. troops killed and 21 others on board hurt.
Nov 15 - Two Black Hawk helicopters collide under fire in Mosul, 17 soldiers killed.
Jan 8 - Black Hawk helicopter shot down near Falluja, killing all nine soldiers aboard.
April 29 - Car bomb near Mahmudiya, south of Baghdad, kills eight U.S. soldiers.
Dec 21 - Suicide bomber in Iraqi uniform walks into mess tent at Mosul and kills 21 people, 18 of them Americans, including 14 U.S. troops.
Jan 6 - Seven soldiers killed when a roadside bomb destroys their Bradley fighting vehicle in Baghdad.
Jan 26 - U.S. Marine transport helicopter ferrying troops comes down in western desert, killing 31 aboard.
June 23 - Seven troops, three of them women, killed in Falluja when a suicide car bomber detonates by a Marine truck.
July 24 - Four soldiers killed when a Humvee patrol vehicle is destroyed by a roadside bomb in Baghdad, and four killed when a Bradley fighting vehicle is hit by another bomb in the city.
Aug 3 - Fourteen Marines killed in a roadside bomb blast on a Marine amphibious assault vehicle near Haditha, northwest of Baghdad. A civilian interpreter was also killed.
Dec 1 - Ten U.S. Marines are killed near Falluja in an insurgent bombing. Another is killed in Ramadi.
Jan 5 - Eleven U.S. soldiers are killed in separate incidents the worst of which was the deaths of five in Baghdad when a roadside bomb hit their patrol.
Jan 7 - Eighteen U.S. soldiers are killed, 12 of whom died when a Blackhawk helicopter came down near the town of Tal Afar near Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad.
Aug 27 - Twelve U.S. soldiers killed in total in Iraq mostly in Baghdad.
Oct 17 - Eleven U.S. soldiers killed in separate incidents all around Iraq.
Dec 6 - Ten U.S. soldiers are killed in four incidents around Iraq, some killed by roadside bombs and others in combat.
Jan 20 - A U.S. military helicopter goes down northeast of Baghdad, killing all 13 people aboard, and five soldiers are killed by militiamen in Kerbala. The deaths of 22 soldiers in total were announced, two of which occurred the previous day.
I'm getting sick of this illegal occupation of Iraq! It's time to bring our troops home and let the Sunnis/Shiites/Iranians/Saudis fight it instead. Of course, there's oil there in Iraq, so the Bush Regime really doesn't want to lose control of it to either Iran or Saudi Arabia. What a freaking mess!

Exciting News! Jenna! Jenna! Jenna!
Sweet Jenna Bush, daughter of the infamous George W Bush is shopping a book proposal to all the major publishers in New York. This will be the first book from this first daughter.
Opinions vary, but many believe the book will tell of her "experiences" in her young 25 year old life, that has been riddled with scandal and appeal.
What exactly could the "experiences" of a young 25 year old girl from the range of Texas be? What could a 25 year old girl, an enemployed college graduate with uncertainty of future employment have to say?
Will Jenna tell of her life at home with her father, a "former" alcoholic, oilman and now President, and her mother a society maiden, who possibly has a passion for the finer beverages of substance?
Will Jenna tell of a father bringing home night after night, the Condi's and Karen's and the Harriet's of the world to "consult" into the wee hours of the Texas morning?
Will Jenna tell of a mother, who found solace and comfort from those lonely nights with a bottle from Beam?
Could the book entail the life of twin twinkies who found more fun in the bars of Belmont than they did on the range in Texas.
Will Jenna discuss her many arrests, both public and concealed that brought embarrassment to the grandparents, but pride to her daddy that she loves so much?
Does Jenna plan on giving details about the twins wild time in Argentina where the embassy asked them to leave, but being a Bush they merely said no. How about picking up an unemployed Argentina citizen, and skipping the latest family Christmas, in favor of a romp in the setting sun?
Could Jenna portray herself as a quite child who cares about the world and the turmoil it is in, or will she describe those sessions of love that the twins may have shared with certain men?
Is Jenna going to tell of the pain her mother feels after watching a woman on TV say that Laura's husband is really hers? Will Jenna describe of times of propping momma Laura up with pillows so she could sit straight for white house photos?
How will Jenna cover the war in Iraq? How will Jenna describe having the same traits as her arrogant, greedy, wild father of whose eyes she has fondly proclaimed to be the apple of?
Could the book have revealing pictures of the Bush twins with their bodies bare and shorn? Could the book be filled with recipes of Laura's baked duck, marinated in brandy and gin?
The world awaits the 25 years of episodes, of a family filled with drunkenness and pain. It awaits the sex scandals, drug tales, the promiscuity and tirades that only this family could have produced.
The book will be all Jenna! Jenna! Jenna! Promiscuous! Scandalous! Eristic!
Hopefully he will give it soon.

From the Washington Post:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales fended off lawmakers on Thursday who demanded to know why the administration took more than five years to obtain court approval of its war-time domestic spying.Of course, this is an admission of guilt on their part, because by saying they are going to go by the laws set forth by our country NOW, which is basically admitting they haven't been going by the laws for years. We knew that, though, didn't we? We liberals have been screaming about this illegal surveillance program for years now and what response did we get? The neocons called us traitors to our country. Uh, sorry, but a traitor is one who spits on the US Constitution and then lies to the American people by saying he's not doing anything illegal and then one day has his Attorney General announce that he's going to start doing the spying the legal way! Of for the love of the Banana Cupcakes...
"I somewhat take issue ... with (Republican) Senator Arlen Specter's innuendo that this is something we could have pulled off the shelf and done in a matter of days or weeks," Gonzales told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "This is a very complicated application. We worked on it a long time."
Gonzales announced an abrupt end to the warrantless electronic surveillance program on Wednesday, just two weeks after Democrats took control of the U.S. Congress, promising investigations and legislation to bring the program in line with the law
They truly believe this announcement is going to wipe the slate clean for themselves and all the judges involved (one judge has already ruled that the Bush Regime's Terror Surveillance program is illegal and un-Constitutional). Bottom line is they're nervous. They know that if the other judges declare the Regime's activities for the last 6 years as un-Constitutional (which they will), then the Congress will have to impeach and can impeach on this alone. The president of the United States of America must take an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and what Bush and his minions have done is override all of them since Bush stepped foot in the Oval Office in January 2001!
The members of Bush's Regime are nervous. Not only are they trying to backtrack their steps in their illegal surveillance program, but they also decided to fire five out of ten Federal Prosecutors who are currently or have handled republican corruption cases:
From Mother Jones (links to Josh Marshall's site too):
The Mysterious Case of the Federal Prosecutor FiringsGuess who the Bush Regime is using to fill the openings now? [wait for it...wait for it...} Aha! Bingo! Cronies from the Republican National Committee!! Of course, when all else fails and your own judges you originally appointed for these slots start to GO BY THE RULE OF LAW and start prosecuting and imprisoning your own, well then, of course it makes sense to put a bunch of RNC political operative attorneys in instead!
Josh Marshall weighs in today with an interesting column in The Hill about the rash of federal prosecutors who have apparently been forced out by the Bush administration in recent weeks. Among the latest to go is San Diego US Attorney Carol Lam, whose office prosecuted the Randy "Duke" Cunningham bribery case and who announced her resignation on Tuesday. "The current work of the other fired USAs has less direct political implications," Marshall writes. "But several seem to have had ongoing investigations of allegedly corrupt Republicans."
Incredible. Have I lost patience? Yes I have. I want to see everyone from Bush on down the line to be hounded, caught, shackled, led to prison, be found guilty, and then either:
Prison for life or Death penalty. I'm impatient but not too terribly choosey on how their story ends. They are traitors to our country. They should be dealt with accordingly.
On June 9, 2006, young Andrew Rove graduated from an elite school in Washington DC. Andrew may live in an upscale neighborhood, drive an expensive sporty car but Andrew is ready for adult life to begin.
Young Andrew Rove has had heartache in his family. His grandmother committed suicide, his grandfather admitted to being gay and left the family he once knew so well.
Young Andrew does have ambitions. He is currently doing volunteer work for Texas Governor Rick Perry and he is trying to decide what he wants to do with his future.
Young Andrew has been encouraged to follow the career path of his father. In fact young Andrew's father is considered an architect.
Andrew's father never served in the Vietnam war of his era. His military draft number was drawn but he quickly enrolled in the University of Utah so he was given a deferral. In fact, shortly after enrolling in college, he withdrew from his classes, but was able to maintain his deferment.
Andrew's father is quite famous for his architect work. He could also be labeled an engineer. His father engineered his loyal stablemate to the Presidency.
Young Andrew's father is the infamous Karl Rove, who is not only considered the architect of ambition, but he is believed to have been a major architect in the creation of the Iraq war.
Andrew's father receives daily reports of the deaths and injuries from the Iraq war he helped engineer. He receives updates on the devastation that this war has caused to the Iraqi people, as well as the families of U.S soldiers.
Karl Rove is actively promoting the "surge" idea he helped create. He is working behind the scenes to twist the arms of Republican lawmakers to gain support for this war.
Karl Rove believes in war. He not only wants to continue the war in Iraq, but he also wants to spread it throughout the mideast.
The military is having trouble recruiting young people for this war. They have even forced some inactive soldiers back into the service and into Iraq.
If Karl Rove really believes Iraq war must be continued and spread abroad, then perhaps he should help reinstate the draft.
The perfect candidate for fighting the Rove/Bush/Cheney war would be young Andrew Rove. Andrew is the exact age the military is trying to recruit.
Young Andrew would make a fine example to Americans that the war is winnable and necessary. If Young Andrew were to be forced into military service and quickly into Iraq, wouldn't that send the citizens of the U.S a clear message?
If Karl Rove and George W Bush really believe that the war is vital to "National Security" and a must in the war on terror, then why not make young Andrew Rove go to the frontlines of Iraq and fight for his daddy's war, and America's freedom?
Lets take a major step and "End The War With a One Day Draft" and while we're at it, doesn't George W Bush have a couple of daughters about the same age as Andrew that have nothing better to do than fight their daddy's war in Iraq as well?
No, Not Bill O'Rally .... really this story is NOT about him ... really I am not kidding ... Yes he is a verbal porn master, just ask Andrea Mackris she even taped some of Bill O's greatest hits...... but Fox is NOT apologizing for THAT....
No .. no it is not about Sean Hannity either... no neither is it an apology for Hannity putting Coulterguist on the air. Come on I know it is profanity when ever that lying fraud is allowed to speak, but this story is NOT about that either... yes IT is a walking verbal porn master, but Fox never apologizes for things like that....
No Rush Limpnballs usually does not do Fox, he is not even up to their LOW standards....
Yes his show is verbal porn, but since it is NOT on Fox they really can't apologize for it ....
No this is NOT about apologizing for Heraldo Rivera.. yes he is the biggest media whore ever, but Fox is NOT apologizing for hiring HIM
No after all your questions, I guess the real story is gonna be a let down;
Fox has apologized for showing a T-shirt with the slogan "fuck da Eagles" in primetime during its coverage of the New Orleans Saints/Philadelphia Eagles NFL playoff game Saturday, Jan. 13.
Unlike much live TV programming these days, the game had no delay. "It was unintentional, inadvertent, and we apologize," said Fox Sports spokesman Dan Bell.
The Parents Television Council has asked its members to complain to the FCC about the on-camera profanity, saying it had "no doubt" it was intentional. But the FCC would be unlikely to act on that or any other profanity complaints until a federal court has ruled on a challenge by broadcasters, including Fox, to its new profanity-enforcement policy.
See it was not that big a deal except to the reichwingnut censor committee Brent "the censor in chief" Bozell sponsors....
fuck da Parents Television Council and Brent Bozell ... hey finally something Pussboy might be qualified to do .... Since Pussboy always takes everything so literally ... yes I know they are NOT sheep, but Bozell has that beard Pussboy can run his fingers through ...... what ya think Rocky?
Anyone notice I was gone?
I now have a new computer and will be getting rid of dial-up at the end of next week to increase my Internet experience. Getting rid of AOL will be my greatest pleasure!!! I am so looking forward to it!!
I've missed all of you and can't wait to get back into the swing of things. One thing I did notice during the last few days of not having the Internet is the brainwashing by the ROM (republican owned media). It is unbelievable! They truly talk about nothing and if you didn't have any other source to get your news from you would literally think there wasn't an illegal occupation going on and you would think the republicans are the trusted party in our government now. Stunning to me that the media is pulling apart all of the democrat's pieces of legislation in the past few days! Where were these same media people over the past six years when the republicans were playing their games? Oh that's right....turning the other cheek. It's so sick what is happening on our televisions. Thank the Spaghetti Monster for Keith Olbermann and in a small way....Joe Scarborough (yes, he's a right winger, but he's been taking a more neutral position in the last few days that I can see.)!!!
I'm happy to be back! Woohoo!

At his magnificent hands came the torture of many. At his magnificent hands came the slaughter of thousands. At his magnificent hands came the removal of freedoms he no longer saw necessary. At his magnificent hands came wealth to a few.
We honor this leader of millions who look at him in wonder. We honor this leader who has coddled the interests of a few. We honor this leader who brings fear to millions and evil that we seldom knew..
Because of who you are we give you this honor. Because of who you are we give you this day. Because of who you are we will never be the same. We give this honor to you, because of who you are.
Enjoy your award George W Bush. America is a mess, BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE!

The people like Patrick Fitzgerald who is the US attorney in Chicago, who was picked to look into the Valerie Plame affair and is NOW prosecuting Scooter Libby for LYING. Since they have such enormous power over ordinary citizens as well as the rich and powerful, they usually are nominated by the attorney general and approved by the Senate. Well in the patriot act there is a provision that allows the president to replace the attorneys without any senate approval at all.
Bush is wasting NO time at all, seven so far and counting. He has replaced a US attorney in Arkansas with a repugnant sycophant which has spent the last ten years helping people like Karl Rove and the republican national committee.
In San Diego Bush has gone after the Attorney who prosecuted Duke Cunningham for his corruption, could the message be ..if you prosecute the wrong people your career is over?
He is also going after the US prosecutor, Kevin V. Ryan, who is overseeing the investigation of backdating of stock options. It has cost a few rich CEO's their jobs and must have caused a few late night phone calls to the White House in protest. Message, leave the rich CEO’s alone...
Not only has Bush tried to stack the courts with reichwingnut judges to decide for their benefactors, but he is also stacking the prosecuting attorney Offices of this country with similar minded people to make sure the trials they seek are politically correct from a political standpoint for them also.
In the future is it possible for corrupt republican political operators and henchmen to act with impunity because the Bush appointed US Attorney will find insufficient the act or the evidence to bring a prosecution under the law as they will define it, and if they have to prosecute for political reasons they could sabotage their cases in front of Bush appointed judges who want to find that particular person not guilty.
Remember the decision of Bush v Gore if you think this type of justice is not possible...
This type of revolution in the US Justice system we definitely do not need.
It is said that behind every great man stands a woman. Every great man in history had a woman behind him to console him in times of difficulty, to advise him when he can trust noone else, and to encourage him to not give up.
George Washington had Martha behind him in his drive to greatness. Abe Lincoln had Mary Todd standing behind him as he made the historic choice to bring equality to all Americans.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt had Eleanor standing strongly behind him as he brought the country out of the pit of despair into the greatness it soon became.
Today there is a woman who stands proudly behind her man as he makes those "tough decisions." This woman has been there into the wee hours of the night, saying you can do it, you can make it happen.
This woman has no ability to be articulate. This woman has no ability to negotiate successful deals. This woman has no ability to make wise decisions. This woman has failed in everything she has tried to do.
As this woman stands proudly behind her man with eyes of adoration, with the determination of a bulldog, with the wisdom that has quietly guided her man to where he is today, it is safe to assume that her man is in his current state because of the woman behind the man.
The woman behind the man who has guided him to what he has become today, the woman who has advised, consoled, and brought much comfort in the darkest of times, is known to the world simply as "Condi."
Condi is the woman behind her man George W Bush and as in history before her, the reason America is where it stands today, the reason George W Bush is where he finds himself today, is because of the "woman behind the man" Condi.
"Surge On" Condi as you stand behind your man as he brings the nation further into the gutters of war. "Surge On" Condi as you shop the marketplaces of the world looking for the "perfect jean jacket" for your man. "Surge On" Condi as you stand behind your man into the halls of evil, into the darkness of despair, into the hallows of hell.
"Surge On" Condi you are the mind behind the mindless, the clue behind the clueless, the heart behind the heartless. "Surge On" Condi, America is in the state it's in today because of the "Woman Behind the Man."

Nobody Can Stop Me
This is my war and you can't stop me. I will not rest until the world is at war. I will not stop until I control the Mideast oil. I will not quit until I control the world.
I don't care what Congress or the American people think. I want more bloodshed and I can't be stopped.
This portrait shows the state of the American President as he prepares to launch yet another war.
Is he Deranged? Is he a Madman? Is he Evil? Is he simply Misguided? Is he a Waraphobic? Is he Dangerous? Is he the Crockpot Cowboy that swaggers to and fro? Who is this Amourous Prologue of War?

A military coup of the White House is the only answer at this point
Here's what Bush has done:
1) He ignored tons of warnings that an attack to our country was coming and when the attack happened on 9/11/01, he immediately said he wanted to go to attack Iraq. Right off the bat, he was not listening to those around him who were saying it was al-Qaida who attacked us and not Iraq.
2) He ignored the authorization bill that war would be used as a last resort in Iraq and started an illegal occupation of a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11 and who was not waging war against us (Iraq was soveriegn and soveriegnty has it's protections from tyrannts like Bush and his Cabal). He pulled the UN Inspectors off the ground in Iraq within a few weeks because he didn't care what anyone said....he wanted to go to war in that country and didn't care what was on paper making it illegal for him to do so.
3) He has issued himself over 800 signing statements which is allowing him to ignore the laws in our country. He took an oath to uphold these laws and he is refusing to acknowledge them.
4) He has refused to listen to the Generals on the ground in Iraq and the Generals who have spoken out against his plans or strategies are quickly pushed out of their jobs and filled with those Generals who will agree with everything he says. His Generals are now saying an escalation in troops is not going to make a difference and will only increase more violence and upheival in the region. Bush doesn't care. He's not listening. He's going to escalate no matter what any of these Generals say.
5) He has rendered the Congress useless. He no longer recognizes them. As soon as a piece of legislation is passed and put on his desk for his signature, he will immediately issue an Executive Order (signing statement) saying he can construe the bill any way he wants and he can just ignore it if he wants to. He has given himself more power than our system of government allows him to have....even in a time of war. He believes that he is the power in the country and everyone under him has none. His own party members in the House & Senate are speaking out against this escalation in Iraq, but Bush doesn't care. He has annoited himself the king and will do what he wants to do in the end.
6) He refuses to listen to the American people. Americans are not allowed to get near him and are held far away from him in cages because he will not allow them their right to speak out against him and his atrocious policies. He only allows loyalists/nationalists to get near him. He doesn't care that he is slowly taking the rights of the American people away. He gives the finger to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and to us on a daily basis.
7) Bush and the members of his Cabinet are domestic enemies for the reasons listed above. They are working separately from the laws and the system of government our country has. They don't see themselves as citizens who are not above the laws. They see themselves as the law of the land.
8) He would not allow any members of the White House Press Corps Association into the room where Bush's speech was from, but only allowed Fox News to be able to take still photos of him. Why? He is suppressing Americans that's why! He is not a well man and he does not want Americans to see the proof of that (though, we did see it on our televisions when he gave this speech). Some are suggesting over at AMERICAblog in the link above that there is a huge possibility that Bush's speech WAS NOT LIVE TO THE NATION. What was he trying to hide? Was he taking pills before the cameras were turned on? Was he acting delusional and irrational and didn't want the cameras of those news outlets that are not from his own personal media (Fox News) to record it? Well, no one knows. The White House issued a still photo to the WHPCA to be the fill-in for what he didn't want Americans to see instead. Traitorous.
Dangerous thinking and actions, but who has the power to stop this madness?!!!
ANSWER: The US military has the power to restore the republic FOR the American people.
We, the American people and the systems of checks and balances put in place by our Forefathers do not have the power to stop Bush. We don't. He is staying the course of tyranny and treason despite any intervention of any kind. At this point, Bush and his Administration are domestic enemies of the United States of America. They need to be arrested, tried, and imprisoned and the only way for that to happen is for the United States military to storm the White House, Camp David, the ranch in Texas, the Bush Family Compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, and all the bunkers and other places where the members of Bush's Cabinet go to protect Americans and to restore our republic back to the way it was prior to the 2000 election.
Our nation and it's systems are no longer working the way they always have. Our Forefathers, if alive today, would be rounding up arms to take down these traitors. You can bet your sweet bippy they would!
I'm all for it. Send in the military and use either our Congress or the US Supreme Court to pause the nation, so the states can create a special election ballot with the new candidates hand chosen by each of the parties. Nancy Pelosi, who is the current Speaker of the House and third in line to the presidency, would be put in temporarily as the President, so Americans could at least feel that continuity is there until a new White House is formed.
I think it's the only way.
Eventually it will come down to this point...
Forget the fact that Bush ignored hundreds of people both in government service inside and out side the military who said the invasion was a bad idea....
Forget the fact Bush ignored the military experts who tried in vain to tell him the plan was inadequate...
Forget the fact that Bush ignored and basically fired a four star general for having the nerve to tell Georgie he did not have enough troops in the initial plan..(which Bush has finnally admitted was the truth)...
Forget the fact that Bush ignored the facts on the ground and demoted or fired people who had the aduacity to tell the truth of the looming fiasco back in 2003 and 2004...
Forget the fact that Bush continued to ignore the facts and tried to create his own reality to explain the bad news coming from Iraq...
Forget the fact that Bush tried to escape responsibility by blaming the media for reporting the TRUTH....
Now with his lies and incompetence exposed for all to see, and the facts on the ground too horrible and numerous to ignore... Bush will take the cowards way out one LAST time...it is the Iraqi people and Maliki's fault because they would NOT goose step in line with Bush....
Forget the fact the Bush put L Paul bremer in charge in 2003 and Bush and Bremer RAN Iraq until June 2004 when the Insurgency was BORN and had it's initial growth to include the original Fallugha incident and first attack on Falugha ...
Forget the fact that from the summer of 2004 until March 2006 The Iraqi government consisted of US hand picked people L Paul bremer put in place to write a constitution to be approved by the US and voted on by members of a Parliment created by the US...
Forget the fact that while this hand picked government was in place Fallugha was savagely attacked by US forces..enraging the Sunni Iraqis feeding the insurgency...
Forget the fact that Abu ghraibe even happened...which further enraged the Iraqi people but especially the Sunnis...and fed the insurgency
Forget the fact that when ever the insurgency was brought up from 2003 until the summer of 2006 the US governments position was it was "just a few dead enders" and was in its "last throes" even as it grew by leaps and bounds...
Forget all the "corners we were turning" as we "stayed the course" of ignoring the truth and facts on the ground because it was politically expedient to do so IN the US....
Forget all of this and so much more....forget everything but the fact that the Iraqi people would NOT blindly follow Bush and the neo-cons who invaded their country under false pretenses....
Forget the fact at this point ONLY George W Bush has been in charge from before the invasion until this very day...no one else...
Then you can understand why at this date the official line is becoming, It is Maliki and the Iraqi peoples fault for NOT doing as we demanded them to......
Good thing it was really all about a democracy where the Iraqi peoples had a vote wasn't it...
Forget the fact they had NO vote for or against the invasion...
Forget the fact that they had no vote when and where the US military was going to attack their cities, homes, kill their relatives and friends or destroy their entire country...no that is NOT part of democracy as far as Bush is considered....
Forget the fact they had no vote who was going to be arrested... or tortured...
Forget the fact the Iraqi people had no vote in the reconstruction...
Forget the facts and just listen to George W Bush ... ONE MORE TIME...
It has really come down to this....again.

Senators Susan Collins & Joe Lieberman...
...are the White House's official liquid paper to hide their incompetency and whose relationship will never die. Would you just look at them! How lucky Americans are to have this loving couple running the Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee! It's a love fest people....a love fest! I swear...if their oversight meetings didn't have cameras in the room, these two would be rolling around on the floor in a frothing embrace and sucking each other's faces off.
Miss Susan and Mr. "I'm a traitor to everyone who is not a GOPer!" Joe have a common bond between them...George W. Bush (and those that appease him) and making sure they do nothing (nothing I tell ya!) to make him or any of his minions look bad or incompetent. Yes, these two work diligently to put clothing on America's 'naked emperor' and his gang. They truly are the "White Out for the King". Now, why do I mention their undying loyalty? Remember hurricane Katrina that devastated the Gulf Coast in August of 2005 and during this storm Condi Rice was shoe shopping in NYC while George Bush was playing guitar and eating cake with John McCain to raise money all the while our fellow Americans were drowning in their attics? That's why I mention all of this. I'm still upset with Susan & Joe and what they didn't do!
The reason why our system of government has these oversight committees is to provide oversight of our government officials no matter what level they are on. Well, back in 2005, Ms. Susan Collins who was Chairman at the time of the Senate Homeland Security committee REFUSED to subpoena the White House after this heartwrenching, history making storm. Even after all of the Gulf States declared a Federal Emergency, which put the responsibility mostly in the hands of the Federal Government at that point forward, ole Susan didn't think calling Bush or the members of his Cabinet to come testify before her was the right thing to do and she made a point of saying this:
"As a result of our efforts, we have a clear window into the functioning and role of the White House in the days before and after Hurricane Katrina made landfall," Collins said.She had a "clear" window? Her clear window was smeared with her own White Out liquid! Bush was playing guitar and had to be shown a videotape of the aftermath of this catastrophe, because he had no freaking clue what was going on and it was his incompetency along with those under him that led to more suffering of the people of all the states effected! Oh for the love of...
She added: "In my judgment, such subpoenas are neither warranted nor appropriate."
What really irked me is she also said back then, she didn't want to impede on the investigation that the White House was doing on themselves. Uh huh. Well, that investigation, Susan, consisted of Bush in the bathroom of his personal quarters in the White House with him talking to an imaginary Michael Brown using a tin can and string phone with one end to his left ear and the other end to his right ear!
Fast forward to today and we now have Joe Lieberman as the Chairman of this same committee and he has announced that he will not subpoena anyone in the White House and will not bog down the nation to get to the bottom of what really happened. Bog us down? Americans want an investigation! He now says he would much rather focus on protecting our nation. Wow! Noooooow, he's thinking about protecting Americans, of course, Joe hasn't actually said which Americans he plans to focus on protecting, but I get a sneaking suspicion, we will find out at some point. Scary....
The White House has never been investigated to the extent it should have been after hurricane Katrina hit. Unfortunately, our country has the same two bottles of White Out imbeciles at the head of the committee that is to make sure our government is doing their jobs when it comes to protecting Americans then...and now. Incredible.
Senator Susan Collins won't be able to find a backbone to do what is right for our country by demanding that an investigation be done of the White House for the benefit of the Katrina victims and to uphold the checks and balances our nation insists on. It doesn't matter that she is on an oversight committee that could do good for all of us either. She has the power to make right with Americans, but she won't. Most infuriating is her relationship with Senator Joe Lieberman, which is obviously more important to her at this point. He is a man who has lost any integrity that he once had. He's a liar, a deceiver, and is not loyal to America. This could explain why they're so close...they have more than one common bond between them!
Great, just great.

Condi Rice in a nutshell...
You should have seen this woman today testifying in front of our Senators! What a freaking liar, deceiver, and pro at using Orwellian terms to explain the actions of herself and others these past four years. Americans should be so happy, though, that the TOUGH questions are finally being asked. When the meeting was getting ready to end, Senator Joe Biden said to Condi that she needs to come up with the document/proof that the Bush Regime has the right to attack Iran without Congressional approval. Her face went blank, her skin went pale, and she never said a word. She just stared blankly ahead. Wow! More to come too. Woohoo! (Smoke of Americablog posted this picture tonight, so a big hat-tip to him!!!) ;-)
George W Bush has proudly given Americans a gift so large, that in receiving it they will never be the same. This gift was not asked for, this gift was desired by very few. This gift will forever change Americans and the way they will live their lives.
The Bush gift comes with a price. That price comes is in the form of oceans of blood flowing from the bodies of U.S soldiers. It includes lost limbs, torn out eyes and trauma from which they will never recover.
The Bush gift also will cost Americans nearly a Trillion dollars from the coffers of the U.S treasury. Bush claims he will rebuild Iraq and create jobs for Iraqi's, but in reality he has created a one way reservoir of tax payer dollars flowing into the accounts of Haliburton to Cheney.
The third part of this price tag is the fear that Bush's gift has brought to many Americans. This fear stems from not knowing what evil tirade Bush will level next, what country he will next invade, and will their sons and daughters be pulled into this quicksand of death and doom.
Enjoy your "gift" America. Bush has given it to you whether you wanted it or not.
Looks like we are already at war with Iran...
U.S. Forces Raid Iranian Consulate in Iraq, Detain 5 (Update2)READ THE REST OF THE ARTICLE HERE.
By Marc Wolfensberger and Robin Stringer
Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. forces in Iraq raided Iran's consulate in the northern city of Arbil and detained five staff members, a state-run Iranian news service said.
The U.S. soldiers disarmed guards and broke open the consulate's gate before seizing documents and computers during the operation, which took place today at about 5 a.m. local time, the Islamic Republic News Agency said. There was no immediate information on whether any of those detained are diplomats.
The raid follows a warning yesterday to Iran and Syria from President George W. Bush in his address to the American people on a new strategy for Iraq. Bush accused Iran and Syria of aiding the movement of ``terrorists and insurgents'' in and out of Iraq and said the U.S. will ``seek out and destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies.''
The bastard! I hate Bush and everyone around him. I want the US military to storm the White House and all other places these assholes go to be arrested and brought up on war crimes. Hitler escaped his punishment but we cannot let Bushitler and his Brownshirts escape their atrocities and war crimes!
Bush's Surge Plan In Detail
The greatest minds of the Bush administration has designed a clear road map for further escalation of Bush's "Blood For Oil" orgasm tour coming to a Mideast country near you.
Surge On King George, World War III is on it's way.
Bush's speech the first draft....
Tonight I want to get you to agree to send more troops into this quagmire I created because it ain't going as well as I lied about before the election, but I need it to get better so we can start developing the oil there. After all the Iraqi's are soon to pass the oil law Bremer wrote for them. BTW if those new troops do not get this war under control by November I promise to get them out, but do not hold me to that either .. after all I lie remember. Well I am at it, I'm sending a Navy Carrier Battle group into the region so when Israel attacks Iran for Me we can give them some air cover, after all it is the least we can do for them at this point. Well besides the patriot missile batteries we are sending to Israel to shoot down the missiles Iran shoots at them after the Israelis blow the hell out of their nuclear reactors and enrichment sites for us. But what the hell, it ain't like the US is attacking Iran is it? BTW don't worry about none of that cause my friends at Fox tell me they are willing to lie to you all, also. Fox will lie for me to get you all so scared you'll think a nuclear attack by Israel on Iran is making you all safe. I really like how Fox news lies, that is why I hired Tony Snow from then to lie just for me right now. Since we are all safer with the decisions I decided ignoring the people my daddy sent to stop me, I just want you all to go shopping and buy a lot of gas...a whole lot of gas. If you buy a whole lot of gas that makes my friends happy, and my friends tell me I am a great president, which makes me feel good. If I feel good we must be winning the war right? Well I am glad you all still listen to my stupid speeches, now Karl is telling me it is time for milk and cookies, which I really like nite y'all. Remember go to the churches which approve of me and listen to the preachers tell you all how bad those democrats really are so you all will vote right next time.

Self-proclaimed American Emperor George W Bush stood before the world and announced a "Surge" or escalation of his war for oil scheme.
Emperor Bush also announced to the world his veiled plans to "Surge" into Iran and Syria with his war to conquer the oil of the Mideast.
Emperor Bush's speech was filled with "empty promises, mindless blather, shameless demagoguery and facist theoracy among other fabrications."
American Emperor George W Bush - liar, fabricator, maker of wars, destroyer of innocent lives. An American icon in his own evil mind.
Bush will speak about his tangled mess in Iraq
I'm so sick and tired of this man running the show here in America and abroad! Tonight he's going to lay out another assinine plan for Iraq and of course, he'll be forgetting to include the impact of his decisions he makes.
He's very consistent in making insane decisions for us and for the future of the Iraqi people. Hell, I don't really think he cares for either actually. His ideas are like the ones, when you're in a room full of people hashing out plans, where the room goes silent after a moron blurts out something completely ridiculous! Unfortunately, this person is now running our country and when he blurts this shit out, he has people around him that nod their heads in agreement and are too afraid to speak out against him, because they don't want to lose their freaking jobs. Disgusting. If any Americans still support this man, then please consider yourself a Hitler-sympathizer, because that is exactly what you're defending when you hail this man as your chief.
Bush wants to escalate this illegal occupation in Iraq. Irag in the last 4 years under Bush's leadership has descended into a cess pool of chaos. American troops are fighting to protect themselves everyday from the Iraqi people and those who have come into Iraq to fight us out of Iraq. The Sunnis are fighting the Shiites and the Shiites, who mostly hail from the country of Iran, are in control of Iraq pretty much. This war is already lost when you think about Iran being in control of Iraq! Oh, but you can't say to Bush, "The Iranians won this illegal occupation Bush! Time to freaking leave!". Nope. The man thinks it's better to add more motor oil to the freaking cake batter to make it tastier.
Speaking of leaving, the Saudi Arabians have stated that they would send in their own troops into Iraq if the Americans left. I think that's a great idea! I say...the money that was allotted for this occupation last year for this year should go in getting our soldiers out of Iraq as fast as they were brought in (Bush got them in there quick enough...he can get them out just as fast!), cut off the money to the American corporations that are there and who haven't done a damn thing for years now (these "security" companies can freaking use OUR money that they stole from us to get their own asses out of there too! Too bad if THEY have to fight their way out, because hey, they're only there to steal America's money under the guise of "securing Iraq in the name of democracy", so with this in mind, they should be happy to leave to give the jobs to the Iraqis, right?), and then tell the Saudis, who haven't lifted a finger for the past 4 years since Bush decided to take a bat to the Middle East bee's nest, to have at it! Let the Saudis fight this goddman mess. They've benefitted the most from this atrocious occupation, so it's about time they got physically and emotionally involved. Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers were Saudis and Osama himself hailed from there, so why not let the Saudis put themselves in harm's way then! I think it's a great idea. I wouldn't be upset either if Osama was on the frontlines either. His chances of getting a bullet between the ears will be greater than with Bush in office!
Bush's escalation of this war won't be temporary, because word has it that he wants to surge for 18 months. That's not a 'surge' or an 'escalation' Mr. Bush.....THAT'S A FRIGGIN MORONIC DESCRIPTION MADE BY SOME ASSHOLE IN THE ROOM! He's just wants future presidents to handle his TANGLED MESS that he has no idea how to fix. That's all it is. I don't think he ever thought that his fear tactics he's used over the years would result in a 2006 election loss, where the American people told him that they no longer trust his party or him or want the Iraqi occuapation to last. The American people told him that we want a swift end to this. The American people do not see how we can win over there and we certainly don't have the ego Bush does when we can admit that we've lost.
We lost an occupation. Hey, worse things could happen. We could have won the heart and mind of Osama bin Laden. Oh wait. Bush did achieve that. Everything Osama ever wanted, he got with Bush's illegal invasion of Iraq. This in itself is our demise, but you can't tell that to the moron in the room. Nope, he still thinks all his ideas are good and can't understand why everyone is just starring and blinking at him.
Stop funding this occupation and get our troops home by April and if that can't happen, then impeach the bastard without holding one freaking hearing! We already know what he's done that warrants his removal from office, but I think Americans at this point would settle for imprisonment.
He meets the definition of insanity,"Doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different result each time he does it."
He needs an intervention, and since the one poppy arranged failed, it is now up to the congress to begin their intervention with legislation blocking the surge, and then cutting off his authority to keep the troops in Iraq, if he refuses that, then the ultimate intervention...
It is the only sane thing to do then.
AFGHANISTAN....According to the Baltimore Sun, "a U.S. Army infantry battalion fighting in a critical area of eastern Afghanistan is due to be withdrawn within weeks in order to deploy to Iraq." Apparently this battalion is about to become a key part of President Bush's surge strategy. However, the results in Afghanistan could be dire:
According to Army Brig. Gen. Anthony J. Tata and other senior U.S. commanders here, that will happen just as the Taliban is expected to unleash a major campaign to cut the vital road between Kabul and Kandahar. The official said the Taliban intend to seize Kandahar, Afghanistan's second-largest city and the place where the group was organized in the 1990s.
...."It is bleak," said Col. Chris Haas, commander of the Joint Special Operations Task Force in Afghanistan.
"The gains we have made over the past few years are mostly gone," said a bearded Special Operations officer, fresh in from advising Afghan army units in battle with 600 to 700 well-equipped Taliban fighters.
More troops in Iraq will almost certainly not make any noticable difference there. More troops in Afghanistan might, but they aren't available because of Iraq. It's worth keeping in mind that Bush's resistance to withdrawal in Iraq is likely to lead to the United States losing not just one war, but two. I'm not sure if any American president has done that before.*************************************************************************************************
Yes I would say we showed bin Forgotten, that he got away with it. He escaped and we have allowed him to remain free so George W Bush could invade a country which had NOTHING to do with 9-11.
We have shown Bin Forgotten he is SAFE where he is and we will just ignore him because getting the oil in Iraq is MORE important to George W Bush and Dick Cheney than getting the man who attacked this country on 9-11.
We have shown the world that we will allow hypocricy to dominate our foreign policy, attacking somebody who did NOT attack America while allowing somebody who did to to escape.
Yes we showed Bin Forgotten real good and he has been laughing himself to sleep each night in his cave since 9-11.
It's a good thing we never showed Hitler or the Russians what we showed bin Forgotten isn't it?
It's Just A Number
As Bush announces his troop escalation and probable escalation of the American death toll, the words of Bush spokesman Tony Snow in speaking about the death toll of U.S solders come to mind. "It's Just A Number" were Snow's words.
In the eyes of George W Bush and Tony Snow, those American soldiers who gave their lives for Bush's profit are "Just A Number."
George W Bush and Tony Snow are "Just Horrible Reversions."
Returned Soldier Finds Belongings Sold
After serving a year in Iraq, Army Reserve Spc. Patrick Rogalin came home and found that everything he had put in a storage locker — essentially everything he owned — had been sold.
Several payments for the locker had bounced because someone emptied his checking account while he was gone.
"It's really insulting, after all I went through over there serving my country, to come back and have to deal with this," Rogalin said.
Rogalin, 20, said he put his belongings into a Public Storage unit near St. Louis before shipping out and set up automatic payments with the company. But while he was in Iraq, he said, someone accessed his checking account and cleaned it out.
After learning of the problem from his bank, Rogalin opened a different account and resumed making payments to Public Storage.
"When I got back I called Public Storage to find out the status of my account and they told me the contents of my storage container had been auctioned off in June because the bill hadn't been paid," he said.
Rogalin said Public Storage never told him his account was in trouble, or that everything he owned — clothes, books, electronic gear, furniture and other property — was going to be sold.
He said he had to move in with his girlfriend. "Otherwise I wouldn't have anything."
Ron Ramler, regional vice president of Public Storage, said company policy prevented him from talking about Rogalin's case.
Rogalin said his contract with Public Storage, based in Glendale, Calif., says the company is liable for losses up to $5,000, but he said the company offered him only $2,000 and an apology. Rogalin estimates his belongings were worth $8,000.
"I called them back and told them this isn't anywhere near right," Rogalin said. "They upped their offer to $2,500 and gave me seven days to accept it or get nothing."
He said he rejected the $2,500 but does not have enough money to fight the company in court.
Rogalin still has his car and clothing he brought back from Iraq. His girlfriend, Jaimie Alonzo, 21, and her parents bought him clothes for Christmas.
"At least now I'm not wearing the same three things every week," Rogalin said.
Rogalin said he plans to attend Missouri State and join the university's ROTC program, so he can resume his Army career as an officer after he graduates.
$2500 for $8000 in losses after he was defending their sorry asses to sell his belongings, it is typical that Bush ET Al is so lax in defending soldiers with the "Soldiers and Sailors Relief act which is supposed to prevent this.
Typical money trumps a soldiers service again.
Bush and Napoleon
George W Bush the self-appointed thinker for all mankind will announce his latest plan to "win the war in Iraq" by sending another 20,000 U.S troops into harms way.
Bush will unveil his "latest" brainchild which will entail sending the troops door to door into the neighborhoods of Baghdad, kicking doors of homes down, searching for "suspects."
The last time Bush had such a plan, the Iraqi's refused to show up to help search the homes of Iraqi citizens. The Iraqi's didn't want to end up in body bags.
Bush claims this time is different. Bush claims he has sought the finest minds in the world, looking for different options. After much searching, Bush found the finest mind in Pork Chop Cheney.
Bush will also be sending another $100 million to Iraq for "reconstruction and job creation." How many billions has Bush already sent to Iraq for "reconstruction and job creation?"
How many billions of dollars has Haliburton stolen from this reconstruction and job creation money in the past? Isn't this just all more of the same?
Bush has already caused well over 3000 reported U.S soldiers deaths and thousands more seriously injured in Iraq. Bush has already caused thousands of Iraqi citizens to be killed, and thousands more seriously injured, many women and children.
Bush claims he understands the anxiety of the American people. Bush claims he feels their pain. Bush claims that this plan will bring about sure victory.
Bush refuses to admit that he has brought about an Iraqi civil war. Bush and company will not even use the words civil war, much less allow a reporter to bring such a thing up.
Bush claims he is winning the "war on terror" and he claims if the U.S doesn't stay in Iraq, that there will be another 9/11. Bush claims this is the best option for victory.
In the words of famed political columnist Arianna Huffington - "It's one thing to believe you're Napoleon. It's quite another to send more young people to die in your Waterloo."

Susan Collins......what a dog!
I'm so happy to hear that he is doing better.
Who wants to bet the Pigs at Fox News won't be very happy? Who cares! Woohoo!
They talk alike. They think alike. They lie alike. They both crave war. They both harbor wealth. They are both arrogant. They are both evil. They both are brilliant in their own minds.
They are Friends Forever. What a chilling thought.
Monday, January 08, 2007
US gunships a few hours ago fired up 'suspected' al-Qaida terrorists in Somalia tonight. Huh. A wag the dog moment for the Bush presidency? Is something going on behind the scenes that the Pigs want us to look the other way while they scheme? Or is this just a way to use those 9,000 troops that Bush has available to him? It's very possible the Bush Regime wants to spread their wars to other continents now. Who knows, but one thing is always sure, this is the most secretive and conniving administration that have ever walked the hall of the People's House and I'm almost apprehensive to find out what they are planning.
As of right now, the names of the al-Qaida suspects have not been released to the public. I wonder if that's because they don't know who they killed! There are reports of quite a few dead on the ground. Whenever we hear the MSM report and use the word 'suspected' via the White House/Pentagon information, be prepared to find out that we just killed innocent civilians at a wedding or something!
Out of curiousity, I decided to go to the FBI's Most Wanted (terrorists) site to see who besides Osama bin Laden would be wanted in connection with the US Embassy bombings in 1998 and I was rather intrigued. Almost all the terrorists have been indicted in the United States for their crimes,even though they haven't been caught, but yet, under Osama's write up it says that he is 'wanted'. Huh? He's only wanted? No court in America has indicted him in absentee? That to me speaks volumes!
Back to the strike in Somalia...
What the hell! Are the republicans this desperate with the democrats taking over this week that they'll start bombing in a completely different continent but go hunting to make it seem like they had no idea what was going on?
Sick of them all!!!!
Georgie Lied Again
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) just released this never before published photo of George W Bush and jailed Lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
This photo was taken at a Bush fundraiser in 2003 which clearly has linked Bush to jailed lobbyist Abramoff.
The White House has since the Abramoff scandal began, fought bitterly to keep any photos or information linking Bush and Abramoff from being released to the public.
It was recently revealed that the White House and the Secret Service had signed a secret agreement during the Abramoff scandal, that would prevent the identity of visitors to the White House from being disclosed.
Bush has repeatedly denied ever having met Abramoff, much less having known him. Abramoff had raised millions of dollars for the Bush re-election campaign.
Bush advisor Karl Rove had repeatedly been known to have had meetings with Abramoff at the White House, including Abramoff asking for certain friends to be given a government job.
Bush claims to have never met Abramoff, yet the photo shows a closer friendship than Bush has ever admitted to having.
George W. Bush lied to start a war, has repeatedly lied to keep U.S troops into a bogged down civil war, lied about outing a CIA operative, and now Georgie has been caught lying about his ties to jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
George W. Bush - Legacy of Lies.
One picture is worth a thousand words,
Bush's surge is just ethnic cleansing by another name.
One last push and that’s you finished in Iraq, Mr President
This is the week, we are told, when George Bush will announce positively the last military assault on insurgency in Iraq before he finally loses patience and quits. The so-called surge will supposedly correct the mistake of last year’s Operation Together Forward. Without law and order in the capital the physical and political reconstruction of Iraq is impossible. But since that order cannot, after all, be assigned to Iraqi forces, the Americans must throw another 20,000-30,000 troops into the conflict instead.
I have not heard one remotely plausible game plan for the “Battle of the Surge”. Leaks have indicated that commanders on the ground are strongly opposed to giving the enemy yet more targets. Pentagon chiefs are equally opposed to the cost in men and money of a transient boost in control on the ground. American public opinion and Congress are overwhelmingly against the plan, which Chuck Hagel, the Republican senator, calls “Alice in Wonderland”.
American puppets in Baghdad’s green zone will do as they are told, but the only real enthusiasts are neocon diehards and Tony Blair. They were represented on this page two weeks ago by Frederick Kagan, in a fantasy revival of the 2003 “clear and hold” strategy, which amounts to telling American soldiers to commit suicide.
and this piece on Taylor Marsh's blog
Prelude to a Massacre
As President Bush puts the "final touches" on his "new" Iraq policy this weekend, Washington waits with bated breath for the fight to come. Having called up his Surgin' General, David Petraeus, Mr. Bush is ready to embark on his Iraq escalation against the will of the American public and its elected Congress.
It is time to consider the consequences of Mr. Bush's policy of escalation in Iraq.
It has been widely reported that Mr. Bush's policy is based on the ideological fantasies of the neo-conservatives at the American Enterprise Institute. The neo-conservative of the moment is AEI's Fred Kagan. In his report, entitled "Choosing Victory: A Plan for Success in Iraq", he lays out the "new way forward".
Throughout history, when small minds have attempted to think big, the results have been catastrophic for the world. This period of history is proving no different.
Fred Kagan's plan is a strategy for ethnic cleansing. If implemented, the Bush Administration will actively participate in a policy of ethnic cleansing in Iraq. They will make the American military and the American people complicit in their policy.
Mr. Kagan's plan focuses on Baghdad as the center of operations. His plan is to clear, or "ethnically cleanse" if you will, the Sunni parts of Baghdad:
We must send more American combat forces into Iraq and especially into Baghdad to support this operation. A surge of seven Army brigades and Marine regiments to support clear-and-hold operations starting in the spring of 2007 is necessary, possible, and will be sufficient. These forces, partnered with Iraqi units, will clear critical Sunni and mixed Sunni-Shi’a neighborhoods, primarily on the west side of the city.
Mr. Maliki and Mr. Kagan are in complete agreement. The way to secure peace is to decrease the violence by ethnically cleansing Baghdad of Sunnis. Then, the Shia militias will make nice and peace will reign. Call me biased, but having lived through such a plan of "pacification" in my own life, I can smell ethnic cleansing better than most.
Baghdad is important. It is important because the sectarian fault lines of Iraq run through it. Throughout the American occupation, Baghdad has been coming apart along sectarian lines. Once mixed neighborhoods are being slowly ethnically cleansed into Shia and Sunni neighborhoods. Now Mr. Kagan is advocating helping the Shia eliminate the remaining Sunni neighborhoods west of the Tigris River. When Iraqi forces and militias go into Sunni neighborhoods they will go in to settle sectarian scores, not to hunt "terrorists". The United States government should take no part in this.
The path to national reconciliation in Iraq does not go through Baghdad - only the path to Iraq's disintegration goes through Baghdad. The path to a stable Iraq goes through Iraq's oil fields in the South and in Kirkuk, appeals to shared Arab nationalism, and access to the Persian Gulf through the Shatt al-Arab. A smarter man than Mr. Kagan would consider how oil revenue sharing, pipelines to the Gulf, and interests of Iraq's neighbors such as Iran in said access to Gulf can be weaved together into a way forward that does not lead down a path of further violence. Instead, a small mind has come up with a recipe for ethnic cleansing - and Mr. Bush is set to endorse it.
It is up to the newly muscular United States Congress to prevent American complicity in the ethnic cleansing and massacres to come. A massacre of Iraq's Sunnis will push us toward that regional war that everyone claims they fear. It is time for Congress to step up and prevent any further loss of American and Iraqi lives in the service of ideological midgets.
Ah but the oil is being saved for the US and British OIL companies to develop there is NO reason to waste it on the Sunni's at all. (snark off)
The U.S. military's No. 2 man in Iraq says political and economic changes must be made before the tide can turn.
In his first wide-ranging interview, the No. 2 U.S. commander in Iraq conceded Sunday that a military "surge" would not be enough to rescue Iraq, advocating economic and political changes as well, as top Democratic lawmakers in Washington toughened their opposition to any increase in U.S. troop strength.
Lt. Gen. Raymond Odierno said he believed that a combination of jobs, provincial elections, anti-militia legislation and stronger Iraqi security forces could stop the nation's plunge toward all-out civil war. Lt. Gen. Peter Chiarelli, his predecessor, spelled out the same approach before his departure one month ago.
By echoing his predecessor, Odierno's comments raised concerns in Washington and Iraq that the U.S. war effort is exhausting old tactics that haven't worked. Indeed, many Iraqis do not trust that a new Baghdad security plan can change their circumstances because the U.S. and Iraqi governments have touted at least five such plans before, all of which failed.
Bush is obviously NOT listening to his generals. He does NOT care about the troops either. If he did he would not continue to send them into Iraq to prop up his failed policies there and to HIDE his incompetence. He would grow up and admit he made a tragic mistake, and has committed the worst military blunder in the history of this country, but he won't. He won't because he would have to admit, because then he would have to admit he was a failure his entire life, and that daddy and daddy's friends had to pull his sorry ass out of trouble time and time again.
Bush would have to admit that daddy's friends like James Baker were just trying to save his sorry ass from the fiasco he made in Iraq. He would have to admit something to the world he can not even admit top himself. So he is willing to send thousands of more troops into the meat grinder of Iraq some to be wounded, some severely even for life, and some to return to this country on flights which Bush refuses to allow to be photographed.
Caskets carrying the dead bodies of the young soldiers Bush as sacrificed to his ego, he tries to keep hidden from our consciences. Somewhere deep inside he knows the truth both of his incompetence, and criminal behavior of sacrificing US soldiers for his ego. somewhere they all know what they have done and are doing is wrong, both legally and morally, but for some reason they refuse to allow their consciences or ours to stop them at this point. How long this will continue no one can say, but with the American people turning their backs on both Bush and the war, this can not continue much longer. He has NO political capital, and the generals are beginning to speak the truth to power, hence he fires them.
The tipping point has been passed but the ground swell is lagging the polls for now, but how much longer?
How much longer before the people return to the street to stop this war just as they did to stop the war in Vietnam?

Who said the illegal occupation in Iraq isn't about oil? Silly fools...
Future of Iraq: The spoils of war
How the West will make a killing on Iraqi oil riches
By Danny Fortson, Andrew Murray-Watson and Tim Webb

Iraq's massive oil reserves, the third-largest in the world, are about to be thrown open for large-scale exploitation by Western oil companies under a controversial law which is expected to come before the Iraqi parliament within days.
The US government has been involved in drawing up the law, a draft of which has been seen by The Independent on Sunday. It would give big oil companies such as BP, Shell and Exxon 30-year contracts to extract Iraqi crude and allow the first large-scale operation of foreign oil interests in the country since the industry was nationalised in 1972.
The huge potential prizes for Western firms will give ammunition to critics who say the Iraq war was fought for oil. They point to statements such as one from Vice-President Dick Cheney, who said in 1999, while he was still chief executive of the oil services company Halliburton, that the world would need an additional 50 million barrels of oil a day by 2010. "So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies," he said.
Oil industry executives and analysts say the law, which would permit Western companies to pocket up to three-quarters of profits in the early years, is the only way to get Iraq's oil industry back on its feet after years of sanctions, war and loss of expertise. But it will operate through "production-sharing agreements" (or PSAs) which are highly unusual in the Middle East, where the oil industry in Saudi Arabia and Iran, the world's two largest producers, is state controlled.
Opponents say Iraq, where oil accounts for 95 per cent of the economy, is being forced to surrender an unacceptable degree of sovereignty.
Proposing the parliamentary motion for war in 2003, Tony Blair denied the "false claim" that "we want to seize" Iraq's oil revenues. He said the money should be put into a trust fund, run by the UN, for the Iraqis, but the idea came to nothing. The same year Colin Powell, then Secretary of State, said: "It cost a great deal of money to prosecute this war. But the oil of the Iraqi people belongs to the Iraqi people; it is their wealth, it will be used for their benefit. So we did not do it for oil."
Supporters say the provision allowing oil companies to take up to 75 per cent of the profits will last until they have recouped initial drilling costs. After that, they would collect about 20 per cent of all profits, according to industry sources in Iraq. But that is twice the industry average for such deals.

During Vietnam no amount of troop escalation made the war any better from the standpoint of defeating the Viet Cong insurgency, or the North Vietnamese ability to aid the VC in the south.
The same was true during the Afghanistan war between the Soviets and Afghan freedom fighters.
More troops mean more attacks on US soldiers, fighting against 27,000,000 people is never going produce a solution when the vast majority of the people reject the US installed government.130,000 troops have not been able to do this the last 4 years, neither will escalating to 170,000 troops produce the victory Bush wants.
Troops can not force the Iraqi people to accept our solutions for their problems even when we created most of those problems for them with our illegal invasion. Guns are not very good at getting people to agree with your political views, all they can do is kill those who do not. In Iraq unfortunately that is over 90% of the people, and I do not think even Bush wants to go there.
Bush is sending in more troops so he will not have to admit he made the worst military blunder in the history of this country, and have the loss of Iraq on his Administration. He is willing to sacrifice more troops for his own ego, too bad he thinks the blood really ever washes off. Bush is trying to buy some more time to run out the clock on his time in office. This would leave the helicopter rescue mission from the roof tops of the green zone to his successor.
Bush thinks he can wash the blood of the troops already killed for his illegal and immoral war off his hands. More troops will definately mean more deaths, which will require Bush and Cheney to wash more blood off their hands, too bad they do not understand history will never allow that.
