A Blog From Baghdad

"today [sic] my father and brother went out to see what happening in the city, they say that it does look that the hits were very precise but when the missiles and bombs explode they wreck havoc in the neighborhood where they fall. Houses near al-salam palace(where the minister Sahaf took journalist) have had all their windows broke, doors blown in and in one case a roof has caved in. I guess that is what is called “collateral damage” and that makes it OK?" — Salam Pax, from Baghdad, in his Blog, Where is Raed?

Friday, March 07, 2003 a Feb. 26 debate in the British Parliament, George Galloway, a Labor Party backbencher from Scotland, declared that "that born-again, right-wing, Bible-belting, fundamentalist Republican Administration in the United States want war." — from Bush, the Bible, and Iraq by Stan Crock of BusinessWeek

War, a new world order, and the return of Jews to the land God promised Abraham are three things Bush believes precede the return of Christ. I'm convinced he thinks that he's bringing on Armageddon. His Dad praised the new world order and W has done everything he can to increase it's skull and bones centered power. Bush has not pushed the Jews to stop expanding settlements in the land God promised Abraham. And war, well, St. Patricks day looks like it. Yup. These bible thumpers are going to screw us all to push their bullshit agenda, making themselves rich in the mean time, so they can be sitting in their mansions when the rapture comes. Anybody else think we should be sending the guys in white coats to put stright jackets on 90% of the Bush administration? Anybody else starting to realize that there's no difference between the fundamentalists in the White House who will kill civilians to meet their greedy goals, and the ones in caves in Afghanistan?

Bush's slips of the tongue often reveal the truth

As Mark Crispin Miller says in The Bush Dyslexicon, what we, and especially the corporate press, often think is a slip of Bush's mangled tongue, actually is a glimpse into the truth. Just one such glaring example in last night's "press" conference should give Syria, Iran, North Korea, and many others (including peace lovers everywhere) reason to worry.
"But in the name of peace and the security of our people, if he won't do so voluntarily, we will disarm him, and other nations will join him — join us in disarming him." — W
Other nations will join him. Well, of course they will, because the one thing Karl Rove (Bush's Brain) has calculated is that W won't get re-elected unless there is a war actually going on during the election in 2004. Oh, and if you'd like to see what actual reporting looks like, by a guy who works for a non-profit news organization, check out Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.

"A number of key [USDA] personnel have bought into much of the industry proposal.... [The rules were weakened because of] industry efforts made at the White House level." — National Food Processors Association newsletter, November 11, 2002

Just in case you were wondering, yes, the NFPA gave almost all of its political donations to Republicans, and gave HEAVILY to Bush. The listeria outbreak in question made it to public schools while the Bushies hid the recall for two weeks. Don't believe me? Read all about it in the lawsuit against Wampler Foods. Oh, and if Bush has his way, this lawsuit will be limited, because he thinks getting sued when you kill people is bad for bidness.

Bush's Buddies getting rich off war

That's the sticker, in the shape of an arrow, I'm going to have made for sticking on the gas pump, pointing at the price. Especially good thing to do in swing states (see the 2000 "election"), and in wealthy, redneck, NRA, and Soccer Mom neighborhoods.
