A Voice in the Wilderness

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O.

Bush and Cheney's offensive against those who call for an end to the Iraq fiasco

Hawkish Democrat Calls for Iraq Pullout

By LIZ SIDOTI, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Raising the temperature in Congress over U.S. policy in Iraq, a pro-military Democrat who once voted to back the war now says it is time to bring the troops home.

"Our troops have become the primary target of the insurgency," Rep. John Murtha said Thursday. "They are united against U.S. forces and we have become a catalyst for violence. The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion."

Of course the Whitehouse's response is to attack anyone who does not share their views as being non-supportive of US Troops.

Apparently the only way we Americans who do not follow Bush's agenda is to support more killing and dying. Apparently the only way to show patriotism is to 'support' bloodshed. It seems to have escaped the Bush Administration that wanting our troops home safe and out of harm's way is also patriotic.

Had we only known that the entire premise for entering Iraq was based on lies and deception of a few money-grubbing chicken hawks, this fiasco would have never happened and lives on both sides continue to be adversely affected by the mayhem resulting from committing this country to a war based on deception and entering it with no exit strategy.

The reason that they went in there with no exit strategy is there was never any intention of exiting. We are there to stay to make sure that every barrel of oil pumped out of the ground there is sold in dollars as opposed to euros. The Neocon Nazis do not care how many people oppose the war, as long as we can control all the oil in the region (two-thirds of the world's remaining supply)than we will control the world, which is the stated objective of the Project For a New American century.

Yes, I agree with your comments and do not see how loss of life for oil amounts to a 'noble cause".
