Can the Bushit Get Any Thicker? G. Dubya and Iraqi Women Detainees...

Kidnapped reporter Jill Carroll is still alive- according to a new video of her released yesterday to Al-Jazeera. That is good news. Sometimes I wonder if the position Bush and Blair have taken towards these kidnappings aren't politically motivated. I mean, after all, allowing "insurgents" to chop of the head, particularly the head of a woman, would help to further emphasize what Bush has been trying to convince you of all along- that "insurgents", "terrorists" or whatever we are calling people who oppose Dubya's foreign policy measures, are not human, but rather barbarians invading our otherwise "civil" society..

Civilians are being made pawns in the game of war and I am not just referring to the "insurgency" or "terrorist" kidnappings. The United States is kidnapping Iraqi women who are guilty of nothing but marriage to a possible, and I repeat, possible Iraqi insurgent. Maybe "suspected" is a better word than "possible", I don't know to be honest. See the problem with this debate, and many other debates we have here domestically in the U.S. is the terminology we employ and utilize. I mean with phrases like "terrorist" and "axis of evil", the debate doesn't have a chance to get started because we have already these value-laden terms conjuring up images that distort reality.

Ughhhh! I am going back to read Angry Black Bitch's words of wisdom for today! This is precisely why my blog has yet to take off- every time I try to get my own opinions down, I get frustrated, pissed off and my attention goes in five million other directions! In the meantime, here is the article that got me going today:

And here are some follow up articles on my earlier posting referencing the Haiti and G. Dubya issue:

Impeach his Lousy, Good-for-little-more-than-starting-another-Vietnam-esq-war Butt!

I came across this article on one of my favorite blogs- the and I must say, I am happy to learn that impeachment is not such a "radical" thought for Americans now. I mean, after all, wasn't it just a mere eight years ago that a certain American president was impeached for lying about an affair? I really have a hard time grasping the inconsistencies because nearly the same elected body impeached eight years ago for less substantial reasons than this current administration has given. Yet, here we are, aside from a little grumbling, unable to garner democratic support for something that should be a no-brainer. Now, I didn't think the last president should have been impeached. The power of impeachment should really only be used in the most extreme cases of fraud and abuse of power. Otherwise, we will be impeaching every president from now till- well you know the drill. Now if George Bush, Jr. doesn't fit the bill for impeachment, with his lies about Iraq and WMD, his lies about links between Al Qaida and Iraq (not to mention Iraq and 9/11), his domestic spying program, the CIA leak under his reign, and about a dozen other things that are slipping this overworked and underpaid mother's mind at the moment. You know what I think? I think that democrats (some or most) and republicans have (since our last impeachment hoorah) a tacit agreement to leave impeachment alone. Either that or some democrats are just so deathly scared of a McCarthyism-type of impeachment situation, after seeing their fearless leader nearly destroyed over lies about sex. I'll have to really think about this some more. As I think about it, why don't you do the same.. The article link follows..

Domestic Spying Program a Waste

According to both myself and the FBI, the domestic spying program initiated by George Bush is a waste of agent's time and the department's money. Worse yet, it is another infringement on the civil liberties of this nation's citizens.

Bush Supporter Shafted By Bush After Death in Iraq

This article appeared today on the MSN.Com web site. I have every intention of commenting on these articles I keep posting. However, because of time and mommy constraints, I will have to believe that these articles for the time being, at least, speak for themselves.

After asking President Bush for assistance in uncovering the truth about her son's death in Iraq, the Bush Campaign, instead, asked her to appear in a re-election commercial....

Now that's classy!

Insurgents are not Terrorists

This New York Times article is the first article I have seen that illustrates there is a difference between the Iraqi "insurgency" and Al Qaida. All too frequently we have seen the American media refer to the insurgents as "terrorists". Clearly, this is a small step towards recognizing that fighting against foreign invaders is not necessarily terrorism.

Nearly 6,000 Iraqi's Dead in 2005, Most Civilians

This article was published today. I do not have time to comment at the moment, but I at least wanted to add it to my site. I will revise this post at a later time. Please read it and comment.;_ylt=Aqs75f0cJ1TKQLHZzr1kI7lhr7sF;_ylu=X3oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

More interesting, however, are the reportings of this website
which clearly make a case for 2005 being the worst year of violence and death in Iraq since the war began in 2003.
