Anyone with a conscience or any moral courage should be doing everything in his/her power to obstruct the administration of the Bush government. Only massive, peaceful, non-violent resistance to his calamitous policies will be able to stem the dreadful tide!

That is why we need to stand up to the neo-fascists and take our humanity back.

While we are still able. I will stand up to them again and again, I just hope next time that they drag me by my good arm!


Yes!

They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.

The people in this administration are immune from the cries to end this war, because none have ever served and nobody in their families are sacrificing their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

When they have nothing to lose, it's easy to let others die for their political mismanagement.

Even as support for war shrinks, few protest it

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/03/18/PEACE.TMP

Quote:
Even though polls say a majority of Americans think President Bush has bungled the war in Iraq and now oppose it, anti-war organizers are struggling to get new converts to tell someone besides pollsters that the country needs to change course.

Activists say the fear of being labeled unpatriotic or unsupportive of the nation's troops will keep many anti-war newcomers away from today's 11 a.m. demonstration in San Francisco and the hundreds of others around the country marking the third anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Organizers expect several thousand demonstrators to show up for the downtown march and rally at Civic Center, compared to the tens of thousands who strode down Market Street in the weeks before the war.


So you see CI, the bullies, although they are cowards at heart, know how to keep dissent quiet. Just accuse someone of being unpatriotic, unAmerican, ans unsupportative of the troops, and they can silence many!!

That's understandable; this country has been flooded with Bushnik rhetoric for five years, and most people are too lazy to read newspapers or dissenting reports.

The only irony today is the simple fact that Bush succeeded too well by instilling fear in the American people, and that was the downfall of his move to sell US ports to Arabs, and that was the only initiative in the past five years that had any merit.

I once considered voting for McCain, but after his vote to approve torture, and his hawkish stance in Iraq (to stay for 100 years), he lost my vote. I can now add number three to my list: his concealment of Vietnam MIAs, and the Vietnam Vets Against McCain.
