Where's a plan, Democrats?

I'm sick of hearing that phrase.

KUCINICH AND COLLEAGUES INTRODUCE BI-PARTISAN HOMEWARD BOUND ACT

Dennis Kucinich and a bipartisan group of Representatives on June 16 introduced House Joint Resolution 55, the Homeward Bound Act, calling for a plan and timeline to be established for U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. The Bill reflects the rising tide of discontent among Americans about the U.S. occupation of Iraq, whether or not they supported the war initially. In the last two weeks, due in part to continuing U.S. casualties, the huge cost of the war, the release of the Downing Street Minutes, publicity surrounding this Bill's bipartisan support and opinion polls showing widespread disapproval of President Bush's handling of the war in Iraq, a majority of
Americans have begun to ask what our goals are and to call for U.S. withdrawal. Read about the Homeward Bound Act at:
Homeward Bound Act

Kucinich had a plan "US out UN in - in 90 days" when he was running for President that he drafted in 2002. It's easy for someone to ask where something is when their eyes are closed. Clearly the US needs to withdrawl - and clearly a true multinational UN peacekeeping force needs to be implemented in order to assure security for the growth of Iraqi security forces, because they're in the middle of a fucking civil war.

You do not deserve our support, Mr. Bush

"FORT BRAGG, N.C., June 28 - President Bush, facing a growing restiveness around the country and in his own party over the constant stream of casualties in Iraq, declared Tuesday night that the daily sacrifice of American lives in Iraq "is worth it, and it is vital to the future security of our country.""
full story

Just like your sacrifice during the time of need in the conflict with Vietnam? Oh that's right, you slithered your way right out of that sacrifice. How do you know what is worth anything, fortunate son? The only time you went to Iraq was to wave a plastic turkey around for some photographers.

You do not know shit about sacrifice. You shit on the poor, and give to the rich. Is that your definition of sacrifice? Given a war of lies with no connection to a national security threat or terrorism, your definiton is very much in line with your historical backstabbing and fallout from service.

PRESIDENT BUSH sought last night to bolster slipping public support for the war in Iraq by connecting it, once again, to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and to the war against terrorism. That connection is not spurious, even if Saddam Hussein was not a collaborator of al Qaeda: Clearly Iraq is now a prime battlefield for Islamic extremists, and success or failure there will do much to determine the outcome of the larger struggle against them. But Mr. Bush didn't explain how a war meant to remove a tyrant believed to wield weapons of mass destruction turned into a fight against Muslim militants, a transformation caused in part by his administration's many errors since Saddam Hussein's defeat more than two years ago. The president also didn't speak candidly enough about the primary mission the United States now has in Iraq, which is not "hunting down the terrorists" but constructing a stable government in spite of Iraq's sectarian divisions and violent resistance from the former ruling elite. It's harder to explain why Americans should die in such a complex and ambitious enterprise than in a fight with international terrorists, but that is the case Mr. Bush most needs to make.

That's right, Mr. Bush, you brought terror to Iraq and it is that terror which has destroyed over 60,000 Iraqi lives and nearly 20,000 American lives. There is no connection to al-Qaeda, except for the connection you delivered through occupation, and most likely they are merely residents who detest a foreign empire army of lies and treason murdering their men, women and children.

Imagine if China invaded the United States, for no reason, and stood around shooting civilians. Do you think there would be an 'insurgency' here? You're god damn fucking right there would be.

If you want to hunt down terrorists, why not go after actual terrorists like the ones who DID attack us on September 11th, his name is Osama bin Laden, and you've fucking failed to do anything about him - but I guess that only perpetuates your rhetoric of destroying our civil liberties for the sake of endless war. What a stupid traitor you are, Mr. Bush. Satan loves you and your work.

You have no mission, you have no point, you have only blood, corruption and lies. You are not FDR - your war is not worth the cost of one life, and you do not deserve our support, Mr. Bush.

Faked, from AmericaBlog: "ABC's Terry Moran just reported that the only time Bush got applause was in the middle of his speech when a White House advance team member started clapping all on their own in order to cajole the soldiers into clapping, which they dutifully did... So even the applause was fake."

full article

(CNN) -- Critics of the U.S. war in Iraq have condemned President George W. Bush for attempting to link the insurgency there with the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

In a televised address marking a year since the U.S. handover of sovereignty in Iraq, Bush urged Americans not to "forget the lessons of September 11."

All you can do is reference something unrelated, because if you referenced something related - vietnam - you wouldn't know what you're talking about. You were too high on cocaine and booze and getting abortions for your girlfriend, right Bush? You're drunk again, you stupid child, and you've driven America into a head-on collision.

Grilled Rumsfeld

"This war has been consistently and grossly mismanaged. And we are now in a seemingly intractable quagmire. Our troops are dying. And there really is no end in sight," Kennedy said, as the Secretary of Defense sat opposite him during an appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Arguing that "the American people, I believe, deserve leadership worthy of the sacrifices that our fighting forces have made, and they deserve the real facts," Kennedy told Rumsfeld, "I regret to say that I don't believe that you have provided either."

---------------
I couldn't agree more, my good Senator. What's more, it was intentionally mismanaged, through policies of torture and war crimes.

---------------
Rumsfeld was clearly shocked by the aggressiveness of the senator's comments.

"Well, that is quite a statement," huffed the Secretary of Defense, who pointedly told Kennedy, "The suggestion by you that people -- me or others -- are painting a rosy picture is false."

But the Massachusetts senator, who has been one of the most ardent Congressional critics of the war, wasn't buying secretary's line. Nor was Kennedy cutting Rumsfeld any more slack.

"In baseball, it's three strikes you're out," Kennedy told Rumsfeld. "Isn't it time for you to resign?"

--------------
Isn't it about time you are arrested, Donald?

--------------
Rumsfeld, who was evidently shaken by the question, paused briefly before saying, "Senator, I've offered my resignation to the president twice."

President Bush rejected Rumsfeld's offers, which came at the height of the scandal over the abuse of detainees at the
Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. The Secretary of Defense told the committee he would defer to the president on the question of when he should step down. "That's his call," Rumseld said of Bush.

-------------
Bush is clearly incapable of making any adept 'calls' especially when it comes to taking war criminals out of his cabinet. Grow up, Donny. Even military-based representatives in the south have the gumption to do what is right. Do you? Not yet. But you still have the chance to make the right decision; to do what is just for America.

Turn yourself in. Go to confession

Dear George

Bush Says US is in Iraq Because of 9/11 Attacks on US

"President George W. Bush defended the war in Iraq, telling Americans the United States was forced into war because of the September 11 terror strikes."

Dear George, you are an idiot. It is a known known that Iraq did not attack America on Septemer 11th. Even your Vice President, Dick Cheney himself, has testified that Iraq did not assist al-Qaeda or have any hand in 9/11. And everyone else agrees, too, including the 9/11 commisssion. And the CIA. And the FBI.

""Some may disagree with my decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power, but all of us can agree that the world's terrorists have now made Iraq a central front in the war on terror," said the president."

Yes, I agree, you turned Iraq into a terror state because of your illegal invasion and sustained occupation and failure to bring peace, employment and freedom to Iraq. Congratulations, we all agree you are a failure.

""Our troops are fighting these terrorists in Iraq so you will not have to face them here at home.""

Keep saying that. Too bad we already HAVE BEEN ATTACKED and invading Iraq DOES NOT HELP. Americans are dying daily in Iraq, how is that better? When you say things like "so you will not have to face them here at home" coupled with ludicrous warmonger statements like "bring it on" you are inviting another 9/11 attack on American soil. And you still haven't captured Osama, you failure.

""This mission isn't easy, and it will not be accomplished overnight. We're fighting a ruthless enemy that relishes the killing of innocent men, women, and children," he said."

How many tens of thousands innocent Iraqis have been murdered by a failure occupation based upon lies and a terrorist strike that is factually unrelated? Oh, you stopped counting. Well...

Civilians reported killed by military intervention in Iraq

Max 25341

Dear George, you are a failure.

Governor Hate

The snake is out of the basket. And oh how he slithers. Mitt Romney has shown his true color: and it isn't red, white or blue, but a deep opaque black. Black like the hate-filled heart of a person who would be opposed to a pro-family and pro-children measure like equal marriage rights so much to endorse a constitutional amendment banning equality from millions of Americans united by love to build a family.

Mitt had hidden his evil as best he could from our great state as long as he desired, and now with goals that send his cold claws beyond New England, his mouth has opened and the vile breath of hatred pours from the state house of Massachusetts with wanton respect for women's suffrage, children's hopes for love and education, ethnic diversity and public education through pointed initiatives over the course of his governing.

This is legislation born out of hatred and fear - and I for one am disgusted. How about working to improve the state? We have real issues like racism, unaffordable housing, violence, homelessness, unemployment, .. all neglected by an agenda of hatred born from a Culture of Fear. It is high time we residents drove a political stake through the black heart of the Romney vampire before he drains the blood of another constituency elsewhere. Jesus teaches peace and acceptance, and Satan teaches you to fear and hate your neighbor. Clearly, Mitt Romney has chosen whom he endorses from those two choices. I encourage you to go to confession, sir, because you have sinned.

Try not to invade Vermont on your way out - all you'll find is weapons of mass peace and bombs of forgiveness.

Note: This is not an endorsement for revolt or any illegality to be committed. It is my opinion in light of the downing street minutes which state simply "the facts are being fixed around the policy" of military invasion. If we were lied to, justice needs to be provided for the sake of America, Iraq, and Britain.
