Silence is Consent

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.
- Thomas Jefferson

Falluja 'a horror' after U.S.-led offensive
Mahmoud Zubari and his family fled their home in Falluja after it was bombed and his 13-year-old son was killed.

That is now a family of ten, was eleven. Do you think anyone in that household is still sympathetic to the resistance? What would you do if this was happening in your neighborhood?

U.S. Troop Level In Iraq To Grow
The Pentagon said yesterday that it will boost the number of U.S. troops in Iraq to about 150,000, the highest level since the U.S. occupation began 19 months ago.
Here's one for the reality based community
Insurgency broken? Far from it
A senior American commander made the mistake of telling reporters that the military offensive that eventually captured a largely depopulated and destroyed Fallujah had "broken the back of the insurgency" across Iraq.

It did not, of course. It could not.
Someone's feeling left out
Sunnis warn of civil war over timing of election
THE largest Sunni party in Iraq gave warning yesterday of civil war unless the January 30 elections are delayed to allow it to compete on equal terms.
