VIDEO- Schumer on MTP about War on Terror/Iraq
What Schumer voted for

BEFORE you watch this, if you haven't seen Condi Rice's comments to Lincoln Chafee, watch to understand how this plays into the Neocon agenda

Call Schumer about this on Monday morning. Did YOU think the Iraq War Authorization was an okay for Bush to run an endless War on Terror on the world?

my Dem Senators have been cheerleaders for the war, even if their constituents are against it. I dislike expressing this openly, but I think it has something to do with a very pro-Israel lobby and how they have helped finance both Schumer and Clinton.

BTW... I am Jewish myself, and this has nothing to do with anti-semitism, but Zionism.

2. Of course it is
If you haven't go to http://www.informationclearinghouse.info and watch the film "The War Party." This film will help you understand the neocons more. It shows how they are pro-Israel and pro-military etc. (only they're not pro-Veterans obviously). This is a must see film in my opinion. I always recommend it to people. Also, go to the PNAC site and read their plans. They're all about Israel. Damn everybody else.

5. You also have architects of PNAC writing a paper for Israel, A Clean Break
Intro....

A Clean Break:
A New Strategy for Securing the Realm


Following is a report prepared by The Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies "Study Group on a New Israeli Strategy Toward 2000." The main substantive ideas in this paper emerge from a discussion in which prominent opinion makers, including Richard Perle, James Colbert, Charles Fairbanks, Jr., Douglas Feith, Robert Loewenberg, David Wurmser, and Meyrav Wurmser participated. The report, entitled "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm," is the framework for a series of follow-up reports on strategy.

4. Audience

Following that question, a middle-aged woman in the audience started shouting: "Stop the killing in Iraq! Congress has to be responsible this time! No Syria," before being escorted from the hearing.

NOT just a "middle-aged woman" but a former diplomat

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

As Rice testified, former U.S. diplomat Mary Ann Wright stood up and shouted from the audience, "Stop the killing in Iraq. You and Congress have to be responsible." Wright, a senior envoy in the U.S. embassies in Afghanistan and Mongolia, resigned in protest in 2003.
