If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

Have you seen John Kerry's plan forWinning The Peace In Iraq?
John Kerry and John Edwards will make the creation of a stable and secure environment in Iraq our immediate priority in order to lay the foundations for sustainable democracy. That is the right way to get the job done and bring our troops home. John Kerry and John Edwards believe the following principles should guide American policy in Iraq right now and that if these steps are not taken, options in the future will become more limited. This needs to be an urgent agenda to:So don't believe them when they say he doesn't have one.
* Internationalize, because others must share the burden;
* Train Iraqis, because they must be responsible for their own security;
* Move forward with reconstruction because that's an important way to stop the spread of terror; and
* Help Iraqis achieve a viable government, because it is up to them to run their own country.
Compare that to the plan Rumsfeld laid out last week:
At some point the Iraqis will get tired of getting killed and we?ll have enough of the Iraqi security forces that they can take over responsibility for governing that country and we?ll be able to pare down the coalition security forces in the country.How many Iraqis have to die to make sure we have enough security forces in Iraq to secure the country? Well, t least they have a plan too.
