Who Will Protect Our Protectors?

WW II, Korea and Vietnam Vet tired of team Bush!

American Soldiers have long had the admiration of the world for their fearless bravery in a just war. There used to be a day that people felt they were safe when "the Americans had arrived."

Thanks to Chief cock of the walk- and other Chickenhawks in D.C., that shining reputation was tarnished by Vietnam and some claim Korea. Now the shine has been all but forgotten, due to the war in Iraq. The abuse at Abu-Grab and whoever encouraged it should be treated for their affliction of character defects. There is no excuse, despite their hate and deviance.(Prissy's previous posts about working in prisons archived)

What breaks Prissys' heart is that this regime has so grossly misused our good patriots to make the fortunes of friends and personal acquaintances. Now Prissy doesn't know about you, but she sees nothing wrong with wanting the folks around you to do well. But never at the expense of our fellow Americans; our fellow human beings.

To military families,a soldier is not simply a uniform, they are our loved ones. They are everyday hero's and protectors of our Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic.... Prissy hopes for the sake of the soldiers and their families you will stay tuned to news about American forces in Iraq.

The msm certainly cannot be trusted to send the real message on the war front. They have failed repeatedly to identify the strong and growing lack of support here at home for this war. The failure of media is a horrific disservice toward fellow Americans who are willing to give their own lives so that others may live with safety and liberty. Consider this email Prissy received, names removed for safety. That's another thing....these politicians who regulary fail in their duty to represent us also will not hesitate to use their power against those in dissent. How un-American and disappointing. No one trusts our "representatives" to do that...

August 29, 2005 Here is what happened to my family.

My son graduated from High School in 2000. He earned a scholarship to college because of his athletic abilities and talent in track and cross-country. He set his school record, which still has not been beaten.

During his second year in College, he dropped out and joined the Army! We were quite in shock over it, because his college was PAID FOR and he was doing good. But, he felt a patriotic duty to his country after the attack on September 11th.

He believed Bush when he talked about Weapons of Mass Destruction and the threat of Iraq to the USA. He said he needed to protect our country against the WMD's when he joined the Army. A year later he was serving in Korea, doing guard duty on the DMZ. After returning from Korea, he was sent to Iraq.

He served in Iraq, and he learned the truth. There were never any WMD's and there has never been a link to Iraq and 9/11. We all know that Osama bin Laden ADMITTED to the attack on 9/11 and we all know that, bin Laden has never been in Iraq.

It is not good over in Iraq, the people HATE US.

My son went through pure hell in Iraq. I have always supported him and all the troops. However, as a Military family we cannot support the ill-conceived war in Iraq. We do not understand why our President would put our troops in harms way, without thoroughly checking out the evidence. Bush and his "Bring Em On" macho mentality, put us in a deadly situation, with no exit plan. He tells us to be patient, but he does not have any family in Iraq? How patient would he be if his twins were there? He tells us that things are going good in Iraq, but, as a Military family, we refuse to live in his "fantasy land" make-believe world. We know better.

We are hard working, conservative Republicans, who had originally voted for George W. Bush, but then we changed and voted for Kerry. We do not believe the lies of Bush any more. We have lived through it and sacrificed much more than he ever has.

My son is proud of serving his country and we are very proud of our son. BUT, we are not proud of a President that has never served in combat and cannot have enough courage to admit to a mistake and correct it. He does not have enough courage to face a grieving mom and tell her why her son died.

Bush is too arrogant to admit that it was wrong to go to Iraq. Yes, Saddam was a bad, evil person, but there are many bad evil dictators in the world,do we need to declare war on all of them? Where are we going to get the troops? Can he or others in Congress send their kids?

Dear Readers, this is the sum attitude of more military families than Prissy can count. Military families who have information, also have questions and we want answers.

Start calling and writing to your representatives and tell them you want our soldiers to start packing....we need them here. The DOD/Media has conflicting accounts about how many Guard soldiers they were able to activate for Hurrican Katrina. Obviously that is not a good sign, Americans are being wiped out as we speak.... Will you choose to wait until this country is a hollow shell of her former self? Prissy is no radical, but the time has come to demand action. Do not stop knocking at their doors until we get it. They owe it to our soldiers and to us.

findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4200/is_20050606/ai_n14657367 New Orleans district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers faces Cuts-June 6,2005

In fiscal year 2006, the New Orleans district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is bracing for a record $71.2 million reduction in federal funding.

It would be the largest single-year funding loss ever for the New Orleans district, Corps officials said.

I've been here over 30 years and I've never seen this level of reduction, said Al Naomi, project manager for the New Orleans district. I think part of the problem is it's not so much the reduction, it's the drastic reduction in one fiscal year. It's the immediacy of the reduction that I think is the hardest thing to adapt to.

There is an economic ripple effect, too. The cuts mean major hurricane and flood protection projects will not be awarded to local engineering firms. Also, a study to determine ways to protect the region from a Category 5 hurricane has been shelved for now.

livejournal.com/users/mparent7777/2271782.html The Lords of War: George Bush… “One dead American for every day in office”. That is some legacy, Dubya. You told the American people this war was going to be short and sweet....

An Excerpt: Was the United States behind this strategy to divide Iraq into three parts? In a word; yes. Acting viceroy, Zalmay Khalilzad, is one of the founding members of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), and has been actively involved in the negotiations from the beginning. Khalilzad oversaw the writing of the Afghanistan constitution which, according to the New York Times, “declared it an ‘Islamic Republic’ in which no law could contradict Islam”. Khalilzad has played a similarly supportive role in Iraq and produced the very same results. In view of this, it is absurd to say that the administration is committed to democracy in the Middle East. Quite the contrary, they are looking to duplicate the Saudi regime which has served American colonial objectives for over 50 years.

Oh Dear, It's Even Worse Than Prissy Thought....

Dear Readers,

Some articles of interest have come to Prissy's attention....because she has come to realize almost nothing we see is happening on the news. The New York Times yesterday showed a video of Camp Casey, the Crawford Peace House and the parking for the Camp Casey shuttle. Prissy looked, but they don't have it online anymore. But they already did the damage.

In the video, the Peace House was identified as belonging to the "other side" and showed cars the broadcaster said were coming into the "pro-Bush, pro-War" camps. Prissy gasped as they showed numerous cars pulling into the Camp Casey parking (with the Shuttles showing in the background) claiming all these folks were "pro-war". Prissy had given the Times a 50/50- not anymore. She will be letting them know how heavily the story was "misidentified".

Fortunately for America, most of us are onto them, just like Cindy Sheehan. Thank you, Cindy for forcing America to pay attention to this war.

T-Shirt purchased at Camp Casey: (Showing growling Cheney and Bush perched on top of a tank-and a drawing of Cindy standing in front of the tank) Why won't the Chicken Hawks cross the road? Because they are afraid of a Mother carrying her son's combat boots......

They should be afraid, not because Cindy will harm them; but because this movement takes this situation from the will of corporate elites, handing control back to the people which is as it should be. If they loved America, they would not rob her people nor those of other nations. Prissy says they love only themselves.

They are even stealing the creativity of the so-called left...Creativity is something these folks hate, far too rigid to realize that freedom is what made us a great and prosperous nation in the past.

Check out their group Grassfire Grassfire.org An excerpt from their ideology. Let's talk media lies, instead...

URGENT ALERT: HELP EXPOSE MEDIA COVER-UP! The liberal media has been SILENT on a major financial scandal involving Air America -- the liberal talk radio network championed so strongly by the media. Grassfire's partners at the MRC are exposing this scandal and the media's bias, but we need your help. SIGN THE PETITION today. 30,000 signers needed for immediate delivery.

The "liberal media" they scream about does not exist and now they want to stomp out what little dissent provided on the airways. Beloved Reagan shredded the "Fairness Doctrine" in media, so they no longer have to tell the truth. Prissy says when we get rid of these dolts, we bring this back. Why on Earth did politicians think it was a good idea for our news information to be owned by corporate interests?

More from these cretins...they are STEALING our pictures, "cause ya know, if ya look at one of them peace signs from fer away, they look like a jet in a circle"... grassfire.org/26/crawford/pics.htm

They claim to have the moral high ground....good one. Look at their last few pictures, then compare to Prissy's below. They even claim the Camp Casey tent as their own...my goodness, they will burn by their own rules! See close up of these signs above post. They have NO shame....

This one takes the cake...they are claiming the "Gold Star Families for Peace" banner as their own....Readers, please let them and the mainstream media know what you think of this obvious propaganda.

Never doubt they lied to start a war, because they continue lying to justify one. The Iraqi people want us out of their country, as much as we want soldiers home. We must call an immediate cease fire, and begin packing. The Iraqi people would help. Our politicians do not yet understand what the will of the people means, but on Sept.24, 2005 they shall, or face losing their jobs. They have not yet seen the disgust of middle America, we are all tired of their lying, cheating, oppressive ways....

Pictures From Camp Casey I and II and Camp W too

IM4W- Ain't it great? All of pro-war signs were sponsored by a group called Grassfire.org. , IM4W.com and MoveAmericaFoward, supported by an advertising firm that did the shameful Swiftboat smear ads on Kerry. How dare they call themselves soldiers..... Note: much of Camp Casey supplies were donated by individuals.

This says it all....

Memorial at Camp Casey I

Front of the Peace House in Crawford Texas.

Camp Dubya in Crawford, they refer to this as Fort Qualls, after another fallen soldier. There was rarely more than 2 people here-the other sides version of the Peace House. Folks, there is no support to continue this war. Fort Qualls lack of visitors compared to the booming business of the Peace House, says it all.

Outdoor eating area at the Peace House, which is the first stopping point in Crawford. Visitors can park and ride to Camp Casey I or II by shuttles in 12 passenger vans, donated by car rental companies and local cititzens. This made for less numbers of cars on Crawfords back roads. These folks think of everything...even sunscreen, bug spray and handwashing stations. Plenty of ice cold bottled water, too. Now that's how to run a protest.... Camp Casey II-IVAW

Camp Bush- Large crowd-NOT- sorry for the blur, these folks are considered dangerous. Dubya has encouraged that violence solves problems. Peace lovers do not encourage violence as a solution. Memorial at Camp Casey I

Tall Tales by MSM...Prissy Gives You The Real Scoop About Crawford, Texas

Dearest Readers,

OH My. Prissy hardly knows where to begin, except to tell you that what is going on in Crawford Texas, is a Declaration of We the People. We know the occupation of Iraq must come to a reasonable end and be quick about it.

But back to Crawford, the dear folks of Texas do indeed have a heart as big as the state itself. Dubya may want to remember he is only a Conneticut Cowboy and perhaps he should not "Mess with Texas".

Prissy is grateful to have experienced true "Southern Hospitality" and declares it is alive and well in this country. Despite the leaders and mainstream media attempts to dismiss, spin and smear Cindy Sheehan; what's going on in Texas is not simply "one grieving Mother's view". Their attacks will backfire on them, as is already happening. The people of the United States (yes, folks from all fifty states had arrived) have spoken...

Politicians listen up....Oh how they wish it was so simple to dig their way out of this mess, you have enraged the mainstream-the ones who think, anyway. The rest will follow, as they always do.

The organizations there were many. Veterans for Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War, BetheChange.org, Code Pink as well as United For Peace and Justice. How awful for Chickenhawks these good folks are demanding accountability that we do not get from our representatives.

Cindy Sheehan has been held by some press as a kook should she stand alone (she doesn't) or a "dupe" if she stands with others. Prissy has met Cindy on a personal level during her Texas adventure and is here to report this lady is no kook, nor anyone's dupe. She is informed and she is onto them. She is not backing down until the truths are revealed. She is not a politician, she is mother and a brave patriot, seeking truthful answers based upon the new information in her possession.

It is easy to see where her soldier son got his sense of duty to country and need to protect and defend Democracy and injustice. She is a brave woman and a truthful one. She is asking truth of those responsible for this war. She has every right to it and we all deserve some straight answers.

Thankfully, Cindy is far from alone in her quest. There was a former colonel and United States Ambassador to Afghanistan who resigned in protest to the Iraq war. She knew what the experts were really saying and how the power lock had the politicians disregard solid anything....

Prissy left the laptop at home, thinking she would use a library. No, even the sweltering heat of 103 degrees, no one really wants to leave Camp Casey. Camp Casey has wi-fi! Prissy should have brought the laptop!

The donations of money, food, time, labor, professional skills, ect given to this effort have been the best of America. Some of the porta potties were donated by a Japanese Peace organization. They didn't smell bad, even if the awful heat. There was also Dr. Marie, checking to advise folks to drink fluids, especially older folks and the young children. Everyone who has the truth wants to help, and that is wonderful.

The ways of Dubya and cronies have most Americans and our global neighbors concerned. We can blame the media and politicians for all of the misinformation they expect reasonable people to believe about this war.

Talk about a surreal experience. After spending many hours at Camp Casey under the wonderful tent, visiting with so many concerned citizens and taking it all in. The next morning in her air conditioned room in Waco, Prissy scanned the local news, national news and local papers.

Tsk, Tsk my how they lie. The numbers of Duyba supporters is crazy. They reported 150 visitors at Fort Qualls, Prissy says only if you count the banners...she counted 8 at the evening high count and 3 to 1 for morning and afternoon visits. Camp Casey, on the other hand was full and growing. About 500 per day throughout the week, some folks coming in as others were going out. It was a delight to speak with so many intelligent and informed people.

Reporters from all over the world were there to witness this history taking place. A Japanese film maker is making a documentary of this American History, and gave us all the thumbs up for loving our country. Military Families Speak Out had a very active role as a family support unit, along with Cindy and Gold Star Families for Peace. The Gold Star Families have paid the ultimate price to find themselves in the position to be able to demand accountability for Iraq. We support them in their quest,as Prissy believes all military families deserve the answer first....

Prissy believes, gauging by the positive energy given off by the patriots at Camp Casey, this is indeed the beginning of the end of the reign of terror here in our beloved United States of America. Democracy shall prevail, though she has been tested severely.

This must never happen again and there are people who look to safeguard us from a war on false premise from ever being a part of American history again. Some learned nothing from the history of Vietnam. Or they learned they were special and that it is OK to use the military for business ventures as long as you don't disrupt the publics life with war.

Shame on the fat cats, as Granny says, putting their bank accounts before their country. Scoundrels, Prissy declares you....it is well past the time to begin righting your horrible wrongs. How will you give back to the Gold Star mother Prissy met, who has lost her only child?

If someone's mother must shame you all into doing it, then so be it.....

Note to Republicans and Democrats; Want Democracy? Get to Crawford, Quickly....

Prissy gives you this advice freely. She sees Chuck Hagel did learn something from Vietnam....Prissy has respect for that. Please next time, when given information, do more "forward leaning" to see that it is consistent.

When people are aware of the significance of how important something is, they will give up much to make their point. Cindy has given up much to make hers, but her bravery has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Cindy, we continue to hold the candle that you have lighted, until the shadows are gone and the truths revealed to all.....

Prissy will be writing live from Crawford, TX this Wednesday! Tune into RAW Story Radio presenting live from Camp Casey.

Prissy Points to Ponder; Hot Links of the Day

Men create war to compete with women, who create life

~Sharon Doubiago, Author

War is based on deception."~ Sun Tzu(c. 400 B C) Ancient Chinese Warlord

War doesn't determine who's right, just who's left."~ Steven Wright (1955-)

Only the defeated and deserters go to war."~ Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)American philosopher & naturalist, writer of Walden (Like AWOL presidents?)

Great Quotes from Dwight Eisenhower (1890-1969) American statesman (34th US president: 1953-61), Supreme Allied Commander in WW II, Europe.

(Oh, what would he know, right Dubya?)

"When people speak to you about a preventive war, you tell them to go and fight it. After my experience, I have come to hate war. War settles nothing."

"I would rather try to persuade a man to go along, because once I have persuaded him he will stick. If I scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared, and then he is gone."

Don't join the book burners. Do not think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go into your library and read every book."

"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity."

Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionist and rebel men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion."

"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it."

You do not lead by hitting people over the head that's assault, not leadership."

George Walker Bush, why must the whole world pay so dearly for your lack of skill,knowledge and education?

Is Prissy the only one who is aware the gas prices didn't go up until we attacked and occupied Iraq? An excerpt from Chuck "Wanna be President" Hagel: (the italics won't turn off-sorry)

But Hagel said even some who had previously backed Bush strongly on Iraq now felt deep unease. The feeling that I get back here, looking in the eyes of real people, where I knew where they were two years ago or a year ago -- they've changed," he said. "These aren't people who ebb and flow on issues. These are rock solid, conservative Republicans who love their country, support the troops and support the president." Hagel said Bush faced a growing credibility gap. "The expectations that the president and his administration presented to the American people 2 1/2 years ago is not what the reality is today. That's presented the biggest credibility gap problem he's got," he said. "I hope he has some sense that something's going on out in the country, that there's a lack of confidence that has developed in our position.

Chuckie, as a Veteran, you should be ashamed of yourself for not supporting the troops. Didn't you learn anything in Vietnam?

More shame for neoRepublicans and their war of choice. Are those misleaders human at all? No wonder Gen Myers needs civilian (Blackwater) body guards-this is how concerned he for his soliders. Glad to hear you are retiring, you are obviously no good to the military....Body Armor Being Replaced Again

"And I would -- without getting into the details, just simply say to the parents of the young people that are over there fighting for this country, that -- that they are, walking away, the best trained and the best equipped army on the face of the earth. They have what they need. They're well led. And this outcome is assured. "( April 1, 2003-DOD newsbriefing by Rumsfield and General Myers)

Myers and Rumsfield? Why do you treat our good soldiers like dirt ? May you all pay dearly for this when it all comes out in the wash, you phonies....

They did not, as so many settlers have in recent weeks, talk of the "miracle" that could stop it happening.

It is too bad these folks cannot live next to one another in peace. Whenever one side vilifies another, peace is difficult to want...At what point do the blood thirsty, in any dispute, say enough?

janes.com/regional_news/americas/news/fr/fr050525_1_n.shtml From Janes Intelligence and Insight- It's the oil, stupid-An excerpt from the unpaid version: Of the nations attending the first South American-Arab League summit held in Brasilia on 10-11 May, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Algeria, Egypt, Syria, Yemen and Venezuela, Ecuador (which has just discovered vast new fields in its Amazon Basin), Argentina and Brazil produce about 27.2 million barrels of oil a day. That is around one-third of the world's output. As it turned out, the summit was something of an anti-climax, largely because only five heads of state from the 22 Arab League nations turned up, although most of South America's 12 presidents were there. More.... Energy supply has become a strategic issue for the US, which has become dangerously dependent on imported oil and natural gas, as well as China (Washington's future nemesis), India and the industrialised world. Maybe Prissy should have put this under "war news"?

Antiwar protester Sheehan to move campsite The piece of private property was offered by a relative of a man who had a fired shotgun in frustration over the protests, a source in the Sheehan camp said. The property owner is also a veteran. "A neighbor of President Bush's has offered us his land," the source said. "It's got plenty of acreage for us, it's private land, we would have legal permission to be on it, it's much closer to the ranch -- in fact it's across the street from his (Bush's) church.

truthinjustice.org/govdeath.htm From Salon GW Bush the "death governor"? August 7, 1999 George W. Bush has presided over an execution in Texas almost every two weeks since his election. Why isn't that a campaign issue? Good question,but it is the first time Prissy has ever heard it asked...

Now considering the above, how is this for irony? Poetic Justice? Maybe if we are still a nation of laws,as Prissy's contacts reassure her that we are..... citizenspook.blogspot.com Citizen Spook. And what timing that the AIPAC indictments should come out a few days after Citizen Spook published this analysis, (see TREASONGATE: The Controlling Law, Part 2: THE DEATH PENALTY, 18 USC 794 and the shift from GWOT to GSAVE ). Those indictments were based on 18 USC 793.

But more interesting and more juicy for the media is the simple application of 18 USC 794(b) which provided for the death penalty or life in prison for perpetraitors of espionage "in time of war". This information, this law, this US Code, is not speculation or theory. This is the law and it's rock solid.

.... It's a simple Code, much easier to explain to the people than the IIPA, but it's not as easy to spin and argue about. It's clear, the White House is guilty as sin under 18 USC 794 (and 793) and the penalty is frightening to them.

Many small web blogs did cover my report on 18 USC 794, and for that, we the people, owe them a debt of gratitude. The only main stream alternative web site which covered my report on 18 USC 794 and the death penalty was Jeff Rense.

Okay RAW Story, whatreallyhappened, where's your PrissyBalls? Don't you know a lawyer's writing when you see it? If he was full of fluff, it would be easy to disprove, but nearly everyone outside the United States knows we could indict them by the press articles alone, for goodness sake! If Prissy can be a brave chicken, you can too.

velvetrevolution.us/ The Velvet Revolution -Velvet Revolution is a term coined to describe the peaceful road to change in countries where governments ignored the inalienable rights of the people. A few inspiring Velvet Revolutions occurred in the former Soviet Union, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, South Africa, and of course, most recently in Ukraine.

Today's ad says: DON'T LOOK FOR THESE NAMES AMONG THE DEAD AND WOUNDED, and lists on Dog Tags the names of Jenna Bush, David Wolfowitz, Elizabeth Cheney, Valerie Rumsfeld, along with their religious affiliation.

9/11 and More Evidence

bushbusiness.com/Wright_OP.htm Micheal Wright does investigative report about the 9/11 terrorist attack. Listen to this , it's some good stuff. Wright has a BA in political science and MA in Sociology. Have you noticed it is smart people who notice these things don't add up?

cooperativeresearch.org/project.jsp?project=911_project This webpage is meant to be a comprehensive resource for anyone attempting to understand 9/11, the anthrax attacks, and the “war on terrorism.” Once you start reading, I think it will become clear that there is much more going on than the “official story” claims. The mainstream media is the one that's failed to “connect the dots.”

Cooperative Research has the most comprehensive timeline Prissy has ever seen. There are so many aspects to this case-Mr. Wrights investigation fits into what you will find here. It would appear the only ones who completely disregard all of the solid evidence would be referred to as the Bush appointed, "911 Commission". Do the people who completed this report feel in their hearts they did right by their country? Prissy shudders at the thought....

Things You Can Do, Pass It On....For One

Let's all gather round and think of chants to say in Washington D.C. Betty and I are making posters with pictures of pitch forks and torches. Just like in the days of old when the people had to go and give their government a reminder of who their "elected" officials really work for. As you know, Prissy will be reporting from Crawford Texas, next week. You will know first hand just what is going on down there. Prissy will post pictures and even take "fact sheets" to hand to our counter-protesting "friends".

Prissy is sure, with facts in hand, many more will be changing their mind about this war. Many already have.George Walker Bush, We the People have spoken. Now you have a decision to make; do the will of the people or tell the world we no longer have a Democracy. You are ignoring the will of the people.

Gauging by the amount of mail Prissy is getting from her neoRepublican representatives (for a while, drunk on power, they did not bother to respond)they are finally aware, the writing is on the wall. These "nervous Nellies" are just moments from defecting, as they should be, if they want to keep their jobs....or perhaps they will win a spot on Prissy's "Banned from Politics for Life" list....

Dubya, we do not trust your "hard" decisions; EVERY ONE of them has been wrong. Tell us one thing about this war that has turned out to be truthful......

Hot Links for Today


Here is the place to find out who to write to. Only it's the GOP's site! I give the deviants credit, they are organized. We can use their stuff...for the greater good.

Speaking of out-of-date jerks, Dubya does it again. Folks, they are leaving us with quite a mess to clean up after they are kicked out... USA Today Roberts scoffed at equal-pay theory -In 1984 memo, he called idea ‘radical' "RADICAL?" The notion that women deserve equitible pay and/or rights is hardly radical...No wonder neoRepublican women hate sex ,except the unmarried "Tranny" Annie Coulter. Who wouldn't with these kinds of attitudes in their men? Granny, of all people, exclaims "Progressive Men Make Better Lovers"! usatoday.com/printedition/news/20050816/a_roberts16.art.htm

nhgazette.com/articles/ED_neal_boortz22.html New Hampshire Gazette-Yet another Chickenhawk friend of Dubya's disrespecting our Veterans-The Gazette let him have it for referring to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a "crutch"....Prissy can only hope God will change your heart-or give you the alternative-quickly...An excerpt, with the Gazette giving it back to this Chickenhawk:

“He jests at scars,” wrote Shakespeare, “that never felt a wound.” Neal Boortz, an Atlanta- based talk show host who refers to himself as “The High Priest of the Church of the Painful Truth,” may find his own scoffing about disabled veterans coming back to wound him. Anyone morbid enough to have kept up with the news these past few years—and impoverished enough not to be a major stakeholder in the Carlyle Group, or receiving deferred compensation from Halliburton—was treated to the sight of an administration furiously engaged in the construction of an entirely faith-based case for war.

Faith-based case for war....nicely said. The NH Gazette loves America and her Veterans!

mfso.org/ Prissy spoke with Nancy Lesson, one founder of Military Families Speak Out the other day. She said more there are now 2,500 families in membership and the organization is growing by about 20 families per day. A lot of folks had not heard of msfo, thanks to the MSM keeping it a "secret society"....One interesting fact-The Stars and Stripes ,a military newspaper advertises MSFO. Now THAT is what Prissy calls progress.....kudos to S&S.

peacefultomorrows.org/#threeyearslater 911 Families for Peaceful Tommorrows- is an organization founded by family members of those killed on September 11th who have united to turn our grief into action for peace....Guess who else stands with Cindy! More families informed enough to realize that they have been lied to......neoRepublicans, do tell Prissy...What makes you believe the American people cannot stop your war machine? We can, we must and we shall.....

From US Army War College publication: Law Vs. War: Competing Approaches to Fighting Terrorism. July 2005- An excerpt from Michael German's "Squaring the Error":

German was a Special Agent for the FBI. Taught counterterrorism and has infiltrated supremacist and militia groups, as an undercover investigator.

Osama bin Laden shortly after 9/11: "I tell you freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. Government will lead the American people-and the west in general-into an unbearable hell and a choking life.".....More

As former Weather Underground(terrorist org) member Brian Flanagan said in a recent documentary, "if you think that you have the moral high-ground....you can do some really dreadful things." That goes for both sides. Respect for the rule of law, international conventions and treaty obligations will not make us weaker, it will engender international cooperation and good will that make it impossible for extremist movements to prosper. I have heard commentators suggest that we are losing the propaganda battle in the Middle East, but that misses the point entirely. The term "propaganda" connontes a fabrication or a spinning of the facts to support one's position, and that is exactely what we must not do. In a battle for legitimacy, honesty and accountability are the most effective ammunition.

Terrorism will never go away, and free and open societies will always be especially vulnerable. But we do not win by becoming less free and less open. Ironically, al Qaeda does not have the power to destroy the United States of America. But we do.

There you have it, from a real expert in terrorism, not from a business man.

And One More....

A very scary excerpt from the dark underbelly of the neoRepublican party:

.....a Washington policy brawl has erupted into public view, over the Bush Administration's now-confirmed contingency plans to stage a pre-emptive military strike against Iran—possibly using nuclear weapons. The report that Vice President Dick Cheney had tasked the Strategic Command (STRATCOM) to develop military contingencies for a massive aerial bombardment campaign against Iran, in the event of a new 9/11 attack, was first revealed in The American Conservative magazine's Aug. 1 edition. The story highlighted the likely use of nuclear weapons, and the widespread military opposition to the pre-emptive nuclear war scheme.

An Excerpt:

Buy beleaguered, overworked White House aides enough drinks and they tell a sordid tale of an administration under siege, beset by bitter staff infighting and led by a man whose mood swings suggest paranoia bordering on schizophrenia. They describe a President whose public persona masks an angry, obscenity-spouting man who berates staff, unleashes tirades against those who disagree with him and ends meetings in the Oval Office with "get out of here!"

The thing about the Vietnam War that troubles me as I look back was it was a political war. We had politicians making military decisions, and it is lessons that any president must learn, and that is to the set the goal and the objective and allow the military to come up with the plans to achieve that objective. And those are essential lessons to be learned from the Vietnam War.

A lesson YOU never learned, Dubya. But your Daddy did. Why for the sake of America, didn't he tell you over and over why HE did not go into Iraq. It's in his book....Referring to why he did not go into Baghdad in his book-"there was no viable exit strategy."

Hayden; and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Iraq and current National Intelligence Director John Negroponte. Hayden served alongside Condoleezza Rice in the National Security Council under President George H. W. Bush.

Re: 'Vanity Fair' Rips Media 'Conspiracy' in Covering Up Role in Plame Scandal
