15. McCaffery just said on the TODAY show..There is all out Civil War in Iraq
So, what more does this administration need to state the Truth to the American people?
The odds of our soldiers survival, especially in Baghdad, has been reduced to nil.

Get them the HELL out of there!

7. The numbers are so staggering that they no longer shock. The fact that
these people were on pilgrimage is even more disgusting. Bush should be impeached for ruining internal security in Iraq. The blood is on the hands of him and the congressional enablers.

16. En masse- Our soldiers should wave a white flag and walk off the job.
unless, this administration (Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove & Rice) are willing to don a uniform, head to the front lines and take their place, just like George Washington, Napolean, King Richard and Prince Charlie did.

8. With the 'heavily fortified' Green Zone in central Baghdad...
this is a travesty that they cannot contain or quell the violence in the same city which the command for the occupation occupies.

13. So tell us...
Mr. President how each life is so important and precious??

"I also believe human life is a sacred gift from our Creator. I worry about a culture that devalues life, and believe as your President I have an important obligation to foster and encourage respect for life in America and throughout the world." George W. Bush, Jul. 20, 2006

14. 322 = the Skull & Boner's secret Evil Number
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 06:50 AM by SpiralHawk
Isn't 322 the secret Evil Number employed by the occult darkside group -- to which George AWOL Bush (and his Nazi grandfather Prescott Bush, and Poppy Bush) belong?
