Veterans Day Special or "How Many Does it Take to Stop a War?"

Sorry for the re-run Dearest Readers, Prissy has been so busy assisting soldiers...and it probably won't let up until Jan. Write to Prissy to contribute your own writings.

To the Veterans reading today: Prissy thanks each one of you for being the ones willing to literally fight for her First Amendment rights, if it comes down to that...Long live the Constitution and all rights we Americans will always associate with it.

Prissy can see by the email inbox that the GOP has done a break-through and some are facing reality. Oh I know its hard to believe, but most of them want Bushco out too. Go Dennis K on impeaching Cheney, but why stop there?


4 Iraqis identified as hotel attackers; woman would-be suicide bomber arrested — Muasher

Sunday, November 13, 2005 -The Jordan Times

AMMAN (JT) — Authorities arrested a woman who was a member of the suicide bombers who carried out attacks on three Amman hotels last week, a senior official said Sunday.

Deputy Prime Minister Marwan Muasher said the suspect, Sajida Mubarak Atrous Al Rishawi, accompanied her husband, Ali Hassan Al Shumari, to Radisson SAS hotel on Wednesday night.

Muasher said the couple entered a banquet hall, where a wedding ceremony at Radisson SAS with the intention of blowing themselves up. But the woman, dressed in a party attire, failed to detonate the explosive device strapped to her body, he said. According to Muasher, the husband forced her to leave the banquet hall and blew himself up. He identified the other two bombers as Safar Mohammed Ali and Rawad Jasim Mohammed Abid, both 23 years old.

Today is Veterans Day. Prissy would like to say a sincere "Thank You" to the soldiers who have fought to defend American freedoms. It is in our soldiers honor, that we continue to speak out against the misuse of a national treasure-our dedicated men and women in uniform.

Prissy is convinced neoRepublicans are consumed with blind hatred for anyone different than themselves. Bigotry they carry inside them, which also determines the course of foreign policy. Greed is another motivating factor for them. They claim otherwise, of course.

They claim they love Jesus and that we should "get over" their war based on lies because they don't intend to stop it.

They wanted war, they got their war and they want the rest of us need to get used to living in a chronic state of war.

Protestor at vigil for troops in Texas

They just don't get it, do they dear readers?

They want to tell protestors we demoralize the troops and wish to claim we disrespect the though we insisted the troops fight a war of choice without proper training and equipment.

Perhaps they can explain why new families sign up every day at Military Families Speak Out? Or why there are hundreds of vets, sure to be thousands eventually, as members of Iraq Veterans Against the War?

Neorepublicans take note: Internationally speaking, MFSO is not losing members- unlike your own rapidly declining party.

We are nearly 3,700 (updated 11/11/07) military families strong; our numbers only gain; as support for the war continues to drop...

Our troops know who really supports them. Whom do neorepublicans think the troops trust more at this point? The "Commander-in-Chief" or their families who protest, yell at politicians and buy them body armor and hand held global position systems to keep them safe? Silly, silly politicians...

Yahoo News- From Pinocchio himself...;_ylt=ArDByuZokUH5PYlIX0t._MsUewgF;_ylu=X3oDMTA2ZGZwam4yBHNlYwNmYw"> TOBYHANNA, Pa. -President Bush fires back at critics of the war in Iraq and says "it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began."

Many of us wish Dubya would realize that facts and real evidence are not on his side...not today, not yesterday and certainly not tomorrow.

It is deeply irresponsible to toute that the white wash investigation done in the Senate even scratched the surface of just how the intelligence was "gathered" and screened for use. The facts in no way support Bush's statements.-PP

In a Veterans Day speech, Bush offered a forceful defense of the war in Iraq, saying it is the central front in the war on terror and that extremists are trying to establish a radical Muslim empire extending from Spain to Indonesia.

You know they are as crazy as Ali implied if Capital Hill Blue really has the scoop...Dear Readers, did you see when Mr. Ali was presented with the Medal of Freedom, Dubya "put up his dukes." Ali responded giving Dubya the "crazy in the head" sign-sure to be a classic...

GOP memo touts new terror attack as way to reverse party's decline

A confidential memo circulating among senior Republican leaders suggests that a new attack by terrorists on U.S. soil could reverse the sagging fortunes of President George W. Bush as well as the GOP and "restore his image as a leader of the American people."

The closely-guarded memo lays out a list of scenarios to bring the Republican party back from the political brink, including a devastating attack by terrorists that could "“validate" the President's war on terror and allow Bush to "unite the country" in a "“time of national shock and sorrow."

The memo says such a reversal in the President's fortunes could keep the party from losing control of Congress in the 2006 midterm elections.

GOP insiders who have seen the memo admit it's a risky strategy and point out that such scenarios are "blue sky thinking" that often occurs in political planning sessions.

If CHB is factual, shouldn't this party should be locked up under their own anti-terror laws? BBC- Bush set to defend war decision

US President George W Bush is expected to hit back at criticism of his grounds for invading Iraq, in a speech to mark Veterans' Day later on Friday.

White House sources suggest he will use the speech in Pennsylvania to deny that intelligence about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction was misused.

One official said that US Democrats had also believed in the weapons' existence before the war.

An opinion poll suggests most Americans now distrust Mr Bush's administration.

Do tell, how to defend a lie which has cost thousands of families so dearly? We do not care to hear George Bush has only made money on this "deal". He has lost nothing but the false prestige, with which he has based his entire political career. He cost America her honor. Secret torture prisons, degrading the Geneva Conventions and the Constitution- this is not the American way. Liberty Forum-More about Able Danger

Able Danger found Mohammed Atta connection to CIA network in Brooklyn During the CIA's Jihad, Al-Farooq Mosque & the Alkifah Refugee Center in Brooklyn were Rahman's key bases of operation and a springboard for "the string of jihad offices that had been set up across America with the help of Saudi and American intelligence." Rahman didn't just pop up in Brooklyn by accident. Rahman received four visas from "CIA agents acting as consular officers at American embassies in Khartoum and Cairo."

Prissy has found Liberty Forum to have a high degree of accuracy on news items-though some comments by forum users may be offensive.

Able Danger again...this is not going to go away.

NORRISTOWN - Senior Pentagon officials were warned not to let the USS Cole dock in Yemen two days before terrorists attacked the ship five years ago killing 17 sailors, according to Congressman Curt Weldon, who said the crucial intelligence was gleaned from the former secret defense operation, "Able Danger."

More verification about who really supports the troops... Veterans Lash Out at Loss of Voice on Capitol Hill-US Newswire

To: National Desk

Contact: David E. Autry of Disabled American Veterans, 202-314-5219

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10 /U.S. Newswire/ -- A proposal to end the long-standing practice of veterans groups addressing a joint session of the House and Senate Veterans' Affairs Committees is an insult to all who have fought, sacrificed and died to defend the Constitution, according to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). And in a strongly worded letter to House Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Steve Buyer (R-Ind.), the DAV has urged him to continue the joint hearings as an invaluable tool in formulating public policy toward America's veterans.

Chairman Buyer recently announced that veterans service organizations will no longer have the opportunity to present testimony before a joint hearing of the House and Senate Veterans' Affairs Committees.

"The tradition of legislative presentations by veterans service organizations dates back to at least the 1950s. And the timing of this announcement -- just before Veterans Day -- could not have been worse," said DAV National Commander Paul W. Jackson. Old American Century-

...At the outset and then at the end of the column, he asks the question “why?” The poignant cartoon that accompanied the column asked the same question. Mr. Rich hazards a few guesses, as have many other commentators. However, there is an authoritative answer. It was provided by one of the principal war-plotters before the Selection of George W. Bush.

Just listen to what Richard Perle had to say on the subject, in his chapter ‚“Iraq: Saddam Unbound‚” that was published in Present Dangers (Encounter Books, 2000) from the Project for the New American Century, edited by Robert Kagan and William Kristol, (original date, June, 1997). (The other authors in the book, from Wolfowitz and Elliott Abrams on up [or down, depending upon your point of view] form a neocon all-star team.)

"Saddam Hussein threatens American interests in the [Persian] Gulf to a degree that cannot be over come by diplomatic accommodation. . . . [A]n Iraq without Saddam would best serve our interests. . . . If the next administration is to protect America's interests in the Gulf . . . it must formulate a comprehensive political and military strategy for bringing down Saddam . . . Accordingly, the United States should move to recognize a provisional government of Iraq based on the principles and leaders of the [Ahmad Chalabi'’s] Iraq National Congress. . . .”

This is why Bush was totally focused on removing Saddam from Day I of his Presidency, as both Richard Clarke and Paul O'Neill, who both experienced that focus up close and personal, have both told us. It was all about those "“American interests" in the Gulf. Just wonder what black viscous substance might be at the center of those "“interests." AFP News- France-Rice on surprise visit to Iraq

Rice, kicking off a Middle East swing, flew in from Bahrain under tight security on a military transport for her second visit to Iraq as chief US diplomat.

She first went briefly to the northern city of Mosul and then on to the capital to confer with local leaders and US officials, and to show the flag in a 32-month-old conflict increasingly unpopular at home.

Following talks in Baghdad with Jaafari and Sunni Arab leaders, she praised efforts to bring the disempowered minority community, believed to be leading the insurgency, back into the political process.

Sunni participation in the political process "should be encouraged", Rice said, adding that she expected Jaafari, a Shiite, and other leaders "to encourage such participation".

The December 15 election is to choose Iraq's first full-term parliament, capping off efforts to restore self-rule in the wake of the March 2003 invasion to oust Saddam Hussein.

Faced with an insurgency that shows no sign of abating, Rice called on Iraq's majority Shiite Muslims, their Kurdish allies and the Sunnis to end their squabbling and work to unite the country.

"We do urge all parties and all potential candidates to reach out across sectarian lines to deal with any divisions, to try and have programs that make for a single Iraq," Rice told reporters accompanying her.

Rice, who last visited the country in May, said the goal was "an Iraq where everybody, all of the three major groups as well as minorities, feel fully protected and fully incorporated."

Condi, you are considered a queen liar amongst military families internationally. Prissy knows many a mom who would love to call you out on the myths you continue to perpetrate at the expense of our fine troops.

More about 911...Prissy thinks it is a matter of time until the lid blows off this "Pandora's Box". I think we have a good idea who was trying to keep that lid shut... Desert News Via RAW Story,1249,635160132,00.html Professor thinks bombs, not planes, toppled WTC- and uh, oh...he's from Brigham Young University.

The physics of 9/11-— including how fast and symmetrically one of the World Trade Center buildings fell prove that official explanations of the collapses are wrong, says a Brigham Young University physics professor.

In fact, it's likely that there were "pre-positioned explosives" in all three buildings at ground zero, says Steven E. Jones.

In a paper posted online Tuesday and accepted for peer-reviewed publication next year, Jones adds his voice to those of previous skeptics, including the authors of the Web site, whose research Jones quotes. Jones' article can be found at

"It is quite plausible that explosives were pre-planted in all three (WTC) buildings," BYU physics professor Steven E. Jones says.

Jones, who conducts research in fusion and solar energy at BYU, is calling for an independent, international scientific investigation "guided not by politicized notions and constraints but rather by observations and calculations.

He thinks the Muslims accused planted the bombs...Prissy thinks Mike is better informed on the other details than Professor Jones. The 9/11 USAF Stand Down-
