So our government listened to this fool, but did not check out his claims? They were looking for any excuse and they found it in this a-hole. Somebody off this fool for all the blood on his hands, that continues to this day. Hey Barry, time to bring the troops home.
“Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi — codenamed Curveball by the CIA — explains why he lied about Saddam’s chemical weapons capability. His false claims were quoted at the UN by former secretary of state Colin Powell and used to help justify the Iraq war”

Thirty-two soldiers took their own lives last month, the most Army suicides in a single month since the Vietnam era. Eleven of the soldiers were not on active duty. Of the 21 who were, seven were serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, the Department of Defense said.
Army officials say they don’t have any answers to why more and more soldiers are resorting to suicide.
“There were no trends to any one unit, camp, post or station,” Col. Chris Philbrick, head of the Army’s suicide prevention task force, told CNN. “I have no silver bullet to answer the question why.”
Last year, a record-breaking 245 soldiers committed suicide. The Army seems on track to surpass that number this year, as 145 soldiers have taken their lives in the first half of 2010.
I think Ron Paul’s break-down of the war is dead on. I still don’t like his son but this assessment is exactly what our war loving government needs to hear if that helps any. Seriously doubt it though.
This is absolutely terrible that this soldier would say these obscene things to children. And we wonder why these guys wanna kill us?

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Alaska-based soldier is under investigation for a video on his Facebook page that taunts smiling Iraqi children by asking if they’re gay, if they engage in certain sex acts and if they would grow up to be terrorists.
The end of the Global War on Terror — or at least the use of that phrase — has been codified at the Pentagon. Reports that the phrase was being retired have been circulating for some time amongst senior administration officials, and this morning speechwriters and other staff were notified via this e-mail to use “Overseas Contingency Operation” instead.
“Recently, in a LtGen [John] Bergman, USMC, statement for the 25 March [congressional] hearing, OMB required that the following change be made before going to the Hill,” Dave Riedel, of the Office of Security Review, wrote in an e-mail.
“OMB says: ‘This Administration prefers to avoid using the term “Long War” or “Global War on Terror” [GWOT]. Please use “Overseas Contingency Operation.'”
Riedel asked recipients to “Please pass on to your speech writers and try to catch this change before the statements make it to OMB.”
An OMB spokesman took issue with the interpretation of OMB’s wishes. “There was no memo, no guidance,” said Kenneth Baer. “This is the opinion of a career civil servant.”
Referring to the phrase “global war on terror,” Baer said, “I have no reason to believe that would be stricken” from Hill testimony. Continue reading →
According to a federal agency report released Thursday, a “new phenomenon” known as thermal expansion was directly responsible for the mysterious collapse of World Trade Center 7 on Sept. 11, 2001.
This study, posed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology — a federal scientific agency which promotes technical industrial standards — marks the first ‘official’ government theory on the collapse.
"This is to raise awareness about the civilian toll in Iraq, and how a lot of them have been forced by the consequences of the invasion to become suicide bombers."
Well what type of reactions from abroad do people expect when they express themselves about the murderous regime of H.W George Bush?
Do they expect people to create loving portraits of this man who has virtually destroyed America and its Constitution and waged unjust wars that have killed thousands on both sides? You got to be kidding me.
I honestly would not be surprised if they all taught their children to hate this country and everyone here. We have let a madman isolate us and turn his evil plans into reality. A definite change is needed.
Developer: “This is to raise awareness about the civilian toll in Iraq, and how a lot of them have been forced by the consequences of the invasion to become suicide bombers.”
After new Senate hearings on the Iraq War, which took place yesterday and continue today, George “Warmonger” Bush will once again lobby to keep the majority of American troops in Iraq.
Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. commander in Iraq, and Ambassador Ryan Crocker will argue the United States risks losing ground to al Qaeda in Iraq if it withdraws too many troops out of the war zone too quickly.
Leading Democrats, including the party’s contenders in the November presidential election, advocate beginning a process to withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq and to focus more attention on fighting al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Whoever the new president is(Barack of course) should hold these assholes as war criminals for putting us in a war that has killed 4000 Americans and countless Iraqis.
Sad that these hypocrites are actively trying to continue a war that was founded on a lie from the beginning.
After seeing this I was compelled to post for all you guys to see. This is one of the most creative pieces of art about this hideous war that has left too many dead on both sides. This mosaic art depicts the faces of Mccain and George Bush who sent these young men and women to war and still have time to laugh as more bodies pile up.
Kudos and props to the artist and hopefully these a-holes will be convicted of war crimes in the next administration. And of course bring Our Troops Home!!
