This picture shows the reason why we should care what the USA has done to Iraq. We should care because we are destroying lives.
But the corporate media is not going to make money caring about what happens to foreigners, so you won't see this on the front pages of any newspapers, or any editorials written about it. And if a corporate paper publishes an op-ed on it, you can be sure they won't point out that it is AMERICA'S FAULT that this genocide in Iraq is going on.
May God help this man.

Submitted to Asheville Citizen Times in October 2006 - I called several times to try to get it published, and they have not published it. Dave Russell of the Asheville Citizen Times said he would get back to me two weeks ago - he never did. Very rude behavior, but to be expected from the corporate media. The Asheville Citizen Times did very little coverage of the anti-war voices prior to the war, and once the war started, very little coverage of the get-out- of- Iraq voices and now they will not talk about the genocide the US is committing in Iraq. It is totally sickening that they act this way, but it is par for the course for them. They did not publish an op-ed I wrote against torture in January 2005 and the only op-eds of mine that they have published are nice little pieces about pacifism and peace..... no calling the American people KILLERS is allowed, no matter how true it is..... after all, the Asheville Citizen Times is also helping the US government to KILL people and blame everyone else besides themselves.
My Op-Ed Piece:
My Op-Ed Piece:
I think of it as “George’s Genocide” but in actually, all taxpayers in
I knew full well that no nuclear WMDs would be found in that country, just as there are no nuclear WMDs in Iran today. For anyone who believed the WMDs were there, you were sold a pack of lies. And you can count on the fact that they have not stopped lying, even to this day. It is clear to me that vast segments of our population are willfully ignorant of the above facts and willfully apathetic to the suffering of the Iraqi people. It was always clear to me that the US administration’s policies were designed to ferment chaos and strife and sectarian differences in Iraq. The common term would be “divide and rule” for what the Bush administration has done and continues to do. And even today, this Bush administration is discussing what they should do with Iraq – as if the country were their own property, instead of belonging to the Iraqis! Any month now, I expect the Bush administration will kick the leader of Iraq out of office and put someone else in place. And I guess Mr. Bush will tell those Iraqi people that they can take their purple fingers and stick them where the sun doesn’t shine.
It is clear to me that Americans are the ones responsible for allowing this situation to develop. It is also clear to me that it is beyond our ability to “fix” – if such a thing was even on the agenda of those who say “stuff happens” while society is breaking down, or “bring em on” when their own troops are in harm’s way or “we don’t do body counts” in the face of massive death of innocents. This war has spawned massive lies, deception, graft, corruption, theft, rape, torture, murder, illnesses, PTSD, and God only knows what other evil – and for what?
Back in the 1950’s, there were bombings of black churches in Birmingham. It was pretty clear it was racially motivated, and that some white folks were behind it. Now, imagine if the people of those churches (that were bombed) had decided to get revenge and bring the evil ones to justice by bombing every single white church in the city the following Sunday morning – massive bombs that killed everyone inside. There is a chance that they would have killed the evil ones and their supporters – but of course, they would have also killed a lot of innocents in the process. And, I expect, there would have been even more violence in response to that violence! This is essentially what we have done in the Middle East – we sent our bombers and troops over there to kill off the evil ones who planned and supported an attack on us. For the most part, we did not get them. Instead, we started a genocide that we are willfully ignoring. And the killing is far, far from over.
Every American needs to work to stop this war and stop this genocide. Call Senator Dole (202-224-3154) and Senator Burr (202-224-3154) and tell them to get our troops out of Iraq now. Call them everyday! And in January 2007, go to DC and join the protest there. Then stay a week and visit members of our congress and tell their staff what you think. And if you see any members of congress walking the halls (and you will), stop them and tell them directly what you think. We are the only ones who can stop this genocide being done in our names. And never forget we are the ones paying for it.

I have license plates that say IMPEACH. Normally, people in other cars and pedestrians have nothing to say about my plates, although I have gotten positive feedback on occasion. But yesterday, someone gave me the finger as they honked and drove past in
I just wanted to make a note of that, in case someone decides to take it further and tracks me down. I did not respond to their giving me the finger and honking.
Also, the last two days, I have been busy calling the UCLA police department to talk to Karl Ross, the head of that department. I called because of the cell phone film of a guy in the UCLA library who got tazered five or six times, while he was not being violent or threatening. (He did say some ugly language like f**k you to the officers.) This film of this incident is about 6 minutes long. I am very upset with these police officers and have been telling Ross (via leaving messages) that the officers need to be fired and then arrested for assault. I think they should also be tazered themselves, for the same amount of time and intensity and with the same weapon. I would be willing to do that myself (hey, were did my pacifism go?). I also think the supervisors for these men should be fired. The phone number to call Karl Ross is 310-825-1491.

Got that? Killing Iraqis is OKAY. Helping them out by getting some humanitarian aid to them (in this case, medical supplies) is NOT OKAY. And this judgment comes from the very same people who SAY they are bringing FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY to the Iraqi people.
So, in installment #10 in my Democracy Hypocrisy series, this one takes the cake. The Republicans are claiming to help people by bombing them - while prosecuting people who actually are helping them a little bit.
Only a REPUBLICAN CONGRESS AND PRESIDENCY COULD ACHIEVE THIS LEVEL OF HYPOCRISY.

Democracy hypocrisy: We Palestinians find ourselves the targets of a systematic siege imposed by the so-called free world. We are being starved and suffocated as a punishment for daring to exercise our democratic right to choose who rules and represents us. Nothing undermines the west's claims to defend freedom and democracy more than what is happening in Palestine.

Tonight, in Fallujah
For the known
For the follow-up
To the fighter planes
To the rockets
To the long days of shelling
To the depleted uranium killing us slowly,
To see their tanks
Their tanks will come first
They remind us of the Israelis
They remind us American planes killed our cousins
Killed them with American rockets,
They have come for us
We were living
Just living our lives,
With our wives and children,
Just like the Americans
They went to school, they did their lessons
They ran innocently
In the schoolyards
And on weekends the boys
Would tease the girls
In the marketplace, but
Dare not let the mother or
Father of the girl see, the girls
Would twist their
Hair, their smiles
Away from the eyes
Of their mothers
We were just living
Not looking to fight, just
Wanting to be
But they came
Hunting us, like
Animals, like wild
Things, they came
Dropping 500 pound bombs
Destroying our mosques, our
Churches, our schools, our
Hospitals, our water, our
Us back 300 years
Just wanted to live
Just wanted to pray each day
In our mosques, raise our
Children, take care of our
Wives, our old fathers and
Mothers, we are not for
There is no
Would it be to run
To be shot down
Like an animal on the run,
Now it is time, even with
The small weapons
We have, we shall stand now
To protect what we have
To claim our own homes, to claim
Our own peace
They are strange
These Christians, not like
My cousin’s wife
Who is Christian, in our
Christian churches, they say
Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers,”
“God’s greatest gift is mercy,”
but these men come
with large crosses on their chests,
their ministers teach them songs about
killing and killing for Jesus, these
Americans are strange, we had
They were peaceful people, people
Who wanted what we wanted,
Peace, life, justice,
We had heard----
So now they come,
Loudspeakers on their jeeps, loudspeakers
And louder music, drums banging,
They tell us to surrender or die, they have
Iraqi slaves among them, some of whom
Will, at the last minute, turn on these
Americans, kill some
And themselves be killed,
We have on our side, Allah
We have on our side, our families,
Our homes, our thousands of years
Of having to defend ourselves
From Persians, from Greeks, from
Romans, from Mongols, from Crusaders,
From Turks, from British—now
This new evil, this new devil
Flying their flags, red, white and blue,
Blaring their music and harsh words,
We see their eyes now,
They are young, like
Us, they are afraid, yet
They want to kill us, we
Are “ragheads,” “we are animals,”
We are “assholes,” “we are terrorists”
And every other name you can think of
And they have come to kill us
To wipe our city off the maps of the world,
Off the map of
They come at the order of the exile
The Americans sent to rule us, Iyad
Allawi, Iyad the whore, Iyad the munafik,
Iyad the devil—and yes,
We shall die, but Allah knows
Who is the evil one
And who is the one who fights in his name,
There is always that short term victory
For the devils
But their long run is not long
And they too shall die
We do not want to die, but
We understand dying is only
Part of living, death is always
Patiently, other times
Takes us swiftly, but we understand
This is the will of Allah
Some of us must die
So that others will
Just what is going on
So that others will see
So that others will resist even more
Our deaths will echo in
The cries of our women, in the history of our
Muslim people, in the Khutba’s on Friday’s
That we die during Ramadan, they know
We die gloriously at the hand of the heathens, at
The hands of the unbelievers, for the sake of
What the Qur’an taught us,
To protect our families, our homes, our country and
Most of all to protect our mosques
So we have stayed to fight
And die during Ramadan, this
Most holy of months, this Ramadan
That requires so much
Discipline and faith, this Ramadan
That is the month of our sign of commitment
To Allah, it is a glorious month
In which to fight, and if necessary
No, we are not mad
We do not wish to die
We have more desire to live
Than these devils who have invaded our land
Attacked our fathers and mothers, who
Have raped our women, who have
Tortured our cousins and brothers in their
Prisons, all in the name of
“democracy,” and “liberty,” and “freedom”—
how hollow their words
how hollow their lies
how hollow their attacks on us
they do not realize
we do not die, we
live, we live
on now, as martyrs, as
heroes, as men who
were not afraid to die, as men
who believed in the Deen, in Allah,
in the same God they proclaim but do not truly follow—
but his wrath is coming
his wrath shall be coming upon them—
if they survive our fight, they
are being poisoned, just as we have been poisoned,
the depleted uranium has poisoned their blood,
has poisoned the eggs in their sperm,
has poisoned their lives
so when they have deformed children, the
children will be witnesses to their killing
us, to their killing of their own souls,
to their killing their own families, and
what of those who will go mad, whose
nightmares will not let them ever sleep
another peaceful night
and what will their faces tell them
when they look in the mirror
when they look on their dressers
and see the pieces of metal
they were given for killing us
in our own homes, in own cities, in
our own mosques and churches,
what will their eyes say,
what will they say when their twisted
lies are uncovered, when the rest of the
world speaks of their massacres of
women and children, of old men, of
bombing hospitals, what will they
do when they see the smirking face
of their presidents, their senators, their
leaders who have allowed them to do this,
have ordered them to do this
what will they say to Jesus
when he speaks to them on Judgement Day
when he asks why they killed—
why they did not say, NO
why they did not prefer prison over killing of innocent
civilians, and to the pilots who
fly freely, without concern of any reprisal, F16s rocketing
our city day after day, night after night, surely
they will not fly with the angels, but
shall burn even worse than the rest—
and so we hear the rockets and hear the bombs
during our maghrib prayer, we have heard since our fajr
prayers, we do not much feel like iftar, the food
has lost some of its taste, no one wants to die,
no one wants to leave their wife and children,
no one wants never to see their father or mother again,
no one wants to have to fight, just to live,
no one wants to have to kill another human being—at least
none of us,
we were living peacefully in our city,
we did not attack anyone, we
did not do anything worse than defend ourselves,
and for that
now we know we must die, we
know that unless Allah produces a miracle
or sends legions of angels to protect us
that the planes will attack
with the tanks that will crush us
with the rockets and snipers who
will split our bodies into pieces, whose
concussions will split our heads open,
whose noise will puncture our eardrums
until we bleed
and like our blessed Prophet Jesus, who came
before our blessed Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him,
we shall die, just as Jesus
was martyred—we shall be martyred
by the new Roman, the new crusader army,
on this Night of Power, where Allah’s message of
righteousness and courage is clear, where
we renew our commitment to our God,
where we know he gives us everlasting life
though we may die tonight on the earth,
we shall live forever, in Allah’s hands
We shall live
in history, and the world, yea
the world will remember
we stood and fought this day,
knowing we would die
but knowing that death is only a moment
in God’s time, in Allah’s time
and that those who kill us today
may live long and tortured lives
when they realize what evil they have done
and those evil men
who ordered them on, Allawi, Bush,
Cheney, Wolfowitz, Abizaid, Myers and the rest,
Allah will take care of them
On the earth and on Judgement Day,
And the men who did not have the courage to
Say, No, they will suffer each day
For the rest of their earthly days,
For it is written, that whosoever kills a believer
During Ramadan, will suffer hellfire and damnation
So we choose to stand, to die if we must,
But during this blessed month of Ramadan
There is no death to the believer
Only the knowledge that Allah’s ways
Are beyond our understanding—we may not
Be on the earth so see what will happen
From our stand, but we will be looking
Down from Heaven
And we shall see Allah visit his wrath
On those who come to kill us in our homes,
In our city, in our country, in our churches, in
Our mosques—and though we may die,
Like these days of our battle,
Will live forever

Evil Is As Evil Does
Perhaps Americans don’t notice, but the rest of the world does see the double standard applied when Saddam Hussein is put on trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity, while US, UK, and Israeli government officials commit far greater crimes by illegally invading countries, targeting civilian populations, and torturing detainees.
I sure noticed how the

Profit? They should be on trial with him! They were aided and abetting him when he was doing his dirty deeds!!! They were selling him arms and intelligence!!! The stinking hypocrites!!!
However, I must add that the US Republicans did not profit from the announcement of Saddam's verdict. They lost BIG TIME in the election.

We also had early voting for two weeks. I have worked the early voting polls on three Friday afternoons. I also worked at a poll this afternoon and evening. I found most people had already decided who to vote for in the US House race and the NC House and NC Senate races. But they did not know who to vote for in the non-partisan races, like judges, school board, and water and soil board. So, the information I handed out was useful.
Tonight there is a party in downtown
I was working to promote Doug Jones for NC House. I still don’t know if he will win, but I do hope he does. He is young, a school teacher, a father of two small children. He is a great guy and would be great in the NC House or any elected position. I am hoping that he (when he wins) will join with Susan Fisher (also running for the NC House) and file articles of impeachment against Bush.
That’s my hope and plan. I also expect that the US House and US Senate will go to the Democrats tonight!
I am so glad the elections are over. I've been working on them quite a bit, and it is darn hard to spend that much time outside just standing around in the cold. Most people around here are receptive and polite, but some of those die-hard Republicans are nasty.
Hey, Clear Channel is still very nasty too, I found out tonight! I was at the party and I was telling the Clear Channel guys (One who’s name – I think – was “Mo”) that I hate Clear Channel for how they vilified any anti-war voices prior to the
I wonder if Mo will ever reflect on why someone who used to listen to Clear Channel (country radio) years ago now feels so strongly against the radio conglomerate that she goes around saying she hates them. I wonder if he will ever realize that the attitude he exhibited is exactly what’s wrong with Clear Channel – that you cannot hold an opinion that they don’t like. It is just not acceptable to them, and they will wish you dead if you do. Or else they will try to suppress you (read the FCC comes to
Well, we can’t thank the corporate media, like Clear Channel, enough for the current mess we are in.
UPDATE: Shuler takes it (I had predicted he would lose, I was WRONG.) and Doug Jones loses by a slim margin. Also, Kissell, in the eastern part of the state, has lost by a very slim margin, but a count of provisional and absentee ballots could change that. The rest of my candidates won. The Democrats have taken the US House, not sure about the US Senate, but it isn’t looking too good.

Lawyers for some
Yes, while we are busy bring “freedom and democracy” to the Iraqi people, we are busy denying it to our POWs in Guantanamo Bay, and stripping away civil rights here in the USA. The latest I heard was that we will now need to get “permission” to travel outside of the country. What slop!
Here is what one Iraqi had to say about the “freedom and democracy” Bush is bring to
"S said if this is freedom, then I dont want it. If this is democracy, then to hell with it. In Saddam's time, we knew who was coming after us. Today we dont know which direction the bullet, the suicide bomb, the militia will come from. She said, Im in my thirties, the peak of my life. The time where I should be enjoying my life. And yet look at me. Im Christian, yet Im all covered up. I cant even say Im Christian. I cant wear my cross. I have to do it all in hiding."
BUSH IS BRINGING THEM THE FREEDOM OF THE GRAVE AND THE DEMOCRACY OF DEATH.

Civilians, a quarter of them children, make up almost all the victims of cluster bombs over the last three decades, a humanitarian agency said on Thursday. In a study of 24 countries and regions, Handicap International said the controversial weapons, which scatter munitions over a wide area, had killed, wounded or maimed 11,044 people of whom 98 percent were civilians. The under-reporting of victims in such places as
Yes, the Bush administration claims the ‘terrorists’ target civilians, and then goes and uses cluster bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan, which mainly target civilians. Furthermore, they sell cluster bombs to
This is murderous hypocrisy!
And they wonder “why they hate us”?
"If you listen carefully for a Democrat plan for success, they don't have one.
This is President Bush, who is speaking while campaigning for Republicans. If Bush has a plan, it is to increase chaos and violence in that poor country. It is only the ‘central front on the war on terror’ because he made it so. Talk about creating your own reality!
Here is someone else’s take on Bush’s “PLAN” in
So, does the Bush administration have a plan for
On Rush’s show, President Bush said this in November 2006:
“Anybody who is in a position to serve this country ought to understand the consequences of words”
Bush said: “BRING ‘
Here’s another Bush comment from October 2002:
Well, it seems that all demands were met – before the invasion actually. That is, all the STATED demands about not have a WMD program were met. Yet, oddly enough, Bush shows no interest or concern about what is happening to the Iraqi people. His officials said “stuff happens” when civil society was breaking apart at the seams and “we don’t do body counts” in comment to civilian casualties. Even today, they show no interest in seeing what is happening to the Iraqi people or even counting how many have been killed by this war and occupation.
Okay, technically, what Bush said in October 2002 isn’t hypocrisy – it is just a lie. But the hypocrisy comes in when the Bush supporters make statements that those of us against the war and against Bush policy WANT to see
More Deadly Than Saddam
The final indignity, if you are an Iraqi who was shot for accidentally turning into the path of a U.S. military convoy (they thought you might be a terrorist), or blown apart by a car bomb or an airstrike, or tortured and murdered by kidnappers, or just for being a Sunni or a Shiite, is that U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair will deny that your death happened.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence said yesterday that it shut down a public Web site after complaints from U.N. weapons inspectors that the site included sensitive details about constructing nuclear and chemical weapons.
It is important to remember that the right wingnuts were the ones who INSISTED that these papers be posted on the web. They were sure that these papers, found in
One of the first things they discovered was that Saddam had chemical and biological weapons detectors – and they thought that proved an active program. Apparently, the definition of the word “detectors” escaped them. (No one has ever said they were very bright.)
Now, with this revelation, they are again claiming that Saddam had an active WMD program – even though the papers date from before 1990 and tell us nothing about Saddam’s program that we didn’t already know! What they do tell people, in Arabic, is HOW to build such programs as Saddam had going back in 1990 - and that he DIDN’T have going in 2003.
And these hypocrites thing the New York Times is endangering national security (See Michell Matkin) when they publish information that everybody already knew – like the fact that
The right wingnuts go crazy when the New York Times publishes a leaked report from the military, yet they care NOT ONE WHIT about the leaking of an undercover CIA officer’s name – and thereby threaten lots of undercover CIA operatives around the world. Oh, and it just so happened that those operatives were working on uncovering nuclear WMD programs, and were not too popular with the Bush administration because they kept claiming that Saddam did not have a nuclear WMD program. And they were correct, and they will stay correct until the end of time.
That’s today’s examples of DEMOCRACY HYPOCRISY. (I have nine posts in total in this series, and I am starting to think I will NEVER run out of material!)

This blog post was aided by a Republican who is running for the NC House. He says his opponent stands for the HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA. Now, I am not sure what the HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA is exactly, but this guy thinks he knows: “In the past Goforth has been endorsed by NC Equality, a homosexual rights
Got that? This guy thinks being opposed to discrimination under the law as the “homosexual agenda”. This guy think civil rights for all is UN-American and treating others fairly and humanly does not enter into his equation at all.
But, let’s take a look at other Republicans and their support for the HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA.
First, there was the Jeff Gannon/Guckett agenda. This guy got a job in the White House press corps even though he was not a journalist. He was a male prostitute who ran an escort service and a pornographic website. (He was also 8” cut – per his website.) How he got a job in the White House press corps is anybody’s guess, but I think we can assume they either don’t check these guys out ahead of time, or he was “servicing” someone there in the White House. The latter explanation would also serve to explain the mysterious visits to the White House at funny hours. So, was this the HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA? To pretend to be a reporter, even though you are a porn star, and go ask questions that are insulting to Democrats? Well, no, I would say that is the Republican agenda, at least for some Republicans.
I think if we had given Ken Starr about $80 million we could have uncovered the “blue stained shirt” in that little fiasco.
Then there is the Mark Foley agenda. He writes laws to protect children from on-line predators, and then goes after them himself. And blames it on alcoholism, a former priest, and who-knows-what-else!! Who is this the HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA?? Being a total hypocrite about morality? Or is it yet again a REPUBLICAN AGENDA?
I report. You decide.
The last major election, the Republicans got their “base” out to vote in 14 states by getting an anti-gay marriage amendment on the ballot. And apparently, extending civil rights to all Americans is
Yes, they claim to believe in democracy, even to the point of exporting it to other countries, yet they don’t want equal civil rights for all Americans!
And the LATEST in this huge HYPOCRISY list is the Haggard affair. Pastor Haggard was the head of huge church out in
Turns out Pastor Haggard not only engaged in HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVITIY, he also paid a hooker for the ‘services’ while preaching that it was a sin! He engaged in homosexual activity with a hooker while trying to make other Americans feel bad because they engage in a mature honest relationship that happen to be homosexual! He engaged in homosexual activity with a hooker while he supports denying civil rights to ALL AMERICANS.
Now, I don’t know if the Republican running for the NC House is also a closet gay that uses a hooker, but I do know that he is opposed to EQUALITY for all Americans and that he is willing to deny some Americans their CIVIL RIGHTS. I do know he belongs to the Republican Party, where all these HYPOCRITES came from. I know he is also the only one in this particular race to use smear attack ads (in print) against his opponent.
Together, I think these qualities make him unsuitable for just about any political office. I will make a copy of this blog post and mail it to him – and he will get it after he loses this election. I hope he does not run again, because I have been polite to him in the past, but I probably won’t be in the future. He just does not deserve it. He is a hypocrite, too.
Oh, and visiting his website shows that he supports the ACTION CLUB which is really an anti-immigration club that goes after the poor folks, not the rich guys who (illegally) give the immigrants jobs. Guess it does not bother him that this area was inhabited by natives until the immigrants from Europe kicked them out (or killed them).
Stay tuned for the next version of Democracy Hypocrisy!
More Democracy Hypocrisy, Part 2
I have a whole list of items to present on “Democracy Hypocrisy” but seriously, I can’t keep up with these a**holes. But here is one more installment:
