The Costs of the Iraq War Shock the US Public

19-08-2004 16:50

"If Bush wins again, the attack is the best defense delusion threatens and the realization of the self-fulfilling prophecy of the American rightwing that sees a coming clash of civilizations between Islam and the West.. The US fluctuates between democratic renewal and totalitarian regression. The imperial temptation is presently weakened but hardly excised.."

U.S. wants to kill Sadr now. Stop them!

19-08-2004 15:50


Dear friends of peace and justice all over our world,

The U.S. wants to kill Moktada al-Sadr now! This is because they well understand that if a poll were taken, Sadr would be shown to be the hero the Iraqi people would choose. Of course, he has stood up to the hated invaders like no other figure in that inflamed nation. He has put his life on the line, told the truth, and followed his principles. That is the kind of leader the facists will never tolerate.

And right now the propagandists and spinmasters are working double time trying to hide this truth from the U.S. public, (CNN, ABC, NPR, CBS, etc.) as they work to eliminate this man. If this understanding were to sink in to the public mind, the erosion of support for this insane neocon war effort could be dramatic.

Please share this perspective with as many others as possible. Contact elected officials and representatives where ever you are and demand that they put pressure on the U.S. military to back off this legitimate Iraqi leader. This is an urgent request. There may not be much time. We can stop this war and change the world if we act! jamie
