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.

Quagmire and Incompetence
How many times have you heard these words? "The world is better off with Saddam Hussein in jail". I'm not sure how anyone can believe that. When even Iraq isn't better off with Saddam in jail. If you can read this, 49 Iraqi soldiers executed in attack designed to send message to US, and still be able to stomach your President saying that "freedom is on the march" you are definitely drinking the Kool-Aid. Iraq is on fire. Car bombs all the time. Daily US bombings of Iraqi towns which are causing massive civilian casualties and suffering. We are killing the people we came to "liberate". Do you honestly believe that Iraqis feel they are better off with Saddam gone?
For a President who has made security a focal point of his campaign today's breaking story on the 380 tons of super-powerful explosives doesn't help his case. Juan Cole has a good wrap-up of the story, Bush is Making us Safer? So again we see that a purported Bush strength is actually a weakness.
