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.

I'm sure any military expert would say that one of the best tactics in war is the element of surprise. So telegraphing this attack on Fallujah was probably not the military's decision. One thing it does is it gives the enemy a chance to escape, Rebel Fighters Who Fled Attack May Now Be Active Elsewhere. As we continue to kill those we came to liberate, 'Scores of civilians' killed in Falluja:
Muhammad Abbud said he watched his nine-year-old son bleed to death at their Falluja home, unable to take him to hospital as fighting raged in the streets and bombs rained down on the Iraqi city.This one too, 'Body parts everywhere' in Fallujah . I think it is becoming more obvious by the day that this just isn't going to work. You can no longer look to Colin Powell for help either, Powell: U.S. Will Pursue Aggressive Foreign Policy:
"The president is not going to trim his sails or pull back," Powell told the newspaper. "It's a continuation of his principles, his policies, his beliefs."Man, when you sell your soul there is a no return policy. Also your government is withholding casualty figures from you, :
Powell made no mention of any specific country or region, but said U.S. foreign policy had been "aggressive in terms of going after challenges, issues" and Bush was "going to keep moving in this direction.
The statement says there could be delays in announcing battlefield casualties as a matter of security. The statement says the Americans are trying to "prevent the anti-Iraqi forces and other terrorist elements from gaining useful battlefield intelligence."So the war is here to distract you now. The election is over and nobody is watching anymore so let the thievery begin again. Be sure and listen to Air America to keep up with the election coverage. Also Dennis Kucinich had something to say about the vote count in Ohio, A Note On The Presidential Election in Ohio.

The 'Christian Nation' Bombs Again
The military machine is ravaging Fallujah in yet another "final clamp down" in neighborhoods not unlike our own. I worry about the people there who are like my mother, bedridden and on oxygen ? she could never simply "leave the city," as Allawi and his U.S. masters callously commanded women and children to do if they wanted to survive. I worry about the poor kids whose parents have no money and no car. I worry about the scared boys and girls in uniform who won't be breathing next weekend, all so that Bush can "win" by showing that he can control Fallujah. It hurts to know what's happening to human beings a world away, yet be unable to stop what Christians once consider the worst kind of sin.
