Bloody Hell

"America is a friend to the people of Iraq. Our demands are directed only at the regime that enslaves them and threatens us. When these demands are met, the first and greatest benefit will come to Iraqi men, women and children." ~George W. Bush

"My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators."

~Dick Cheney

"Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties." ~George W. Bush
(faces of the fallen)

"There comes a time when deceit and defiance must be seen for what they are. At that point, a gathering danger must be directly confronted. At that point, we must show that beyond our resolutions is actual resolve."

~ Dick Cheney

I hate those men who would send into war youth to fight and die for them; the pride and cowardice of those old men, making their wars that boys must die.
~Mary Roberts Rinehart

Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained
by violence.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

"War is menstruation envy."

~ Ani DiFranco, Blood in the Boardroom

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

They say the pen is mightier then the sword.
But isn't it the pen that leads us to the sword, more times then not??????

Great presentation on a horrible situation. The truth, however intense and alarming, has to be shown and known before things will get better.

P.S. Added your link to my sidebar. I'm looking forward to dropping in and reading more from the windy city, or as my southern grandmother used to call it..Chicarrrrgo ;-) Nice site!

Pelmo -- I don't know. I think in the case of Iraq, the pen supported the motivations of the greedy.

Joe -- Thanks and greetings from "Chicarrgo". I'll add your link, as well.

Hate to be negative, but sometimes it all seems like so much howling in the wind.
