  1. : BRING THE TROOPS HOME

    THE TRUTH PREVAILS:

    BLACKWATER SECURITY AND OTHERS:

    For weeks, months, years, it has been know by many Americans, that Iraqi civilians were being indiscriminately killed.

    Enough evidence has been established, that such now is becoming brought out from Secrecy, and from under the cover-up.

    The question now becomes direct to Military Commanders & the Pentagon. The Iraqis, the contractors, military personnel

    have been witness to these kinds of abuses for the entire time we have occupied Iraq. It certainly does not seem to the

    rest of us, that that would be part of the LIBERATION. You will have a hard time convincing anyone, that part of the

    responsibility toward accountability for these criminal acts, does not fall directly on very top Military & civilian leadership.

    Unlike Viet Nam, where the blame was pushed down to a Lt. Cali, the top shall be held to blame.

    The death toll on Iraqi civilians speaks for itself. Impossible, to have been missed by top leadership.

    “THUGS” EQUIPPED BETTER THAN THE TROOPS, ON YOUR TAX DOLLARS..
    WHILE OUR TROOPS DIE !!
    What little news we have gotten on the Private Security company Blackwater.
    Did anyone notice how well equipped they are in comparison to our troops? Folks that was done on your taxes FOR Private corporations. WOW!!
    I really don’t see how that is supporting our troops,all this rhetoric on how the republicans support our troops. The reality is the money has gone to provide Security on the oil wells, Permanent construction of bases, and on an Embassy, largest in the world. Just why is that?
    WHERE HAS CONGRESS AND THE MEDIA BEEN. IN SOMEONES POCKET!!
    MR. PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT, SOMEONE HAS “BETRAYED—US”!!
    MORE UNJUSTIFABLE WAR CRIMES!!
    A British polling agency has determined that more than one million Iraqi citizens have died as a result of the Iraq war. This report follows survey results released last fall by Lancet, the prestigious medical magazine which gave a conservative estimate of 650,000 deaths. Opinion Research Business found that the death rate in Iraq increased by 1.2 million people since the U.S.-led invasion began .
    Due to the current crisis, approximately 2,000 Iraqis are forced to flee their homes every day. More than 2.2 million Iraqis have already fled to neighboring countries such as Syria and Jordan, where they face a daily struggle to survive. Jordan has closed its borders, and Syria plans to next month. Soon, Iraqis threatened with death will literally have no way to flee.
    The atrocities are just coming to light in Congress, but have been in sight for 4 years by many..
    The government has silenced media that wasn’t
    already in their pocket. Or again was that Blackwater doing the administrations dirty work.
    But of course they get immunity!! 128 Journalist have been killed in Iraq.
    INVESTIGATE, INTERVIEW, AND INVESTIGATE INTERVIEW. NOT JUST OUR TROOPS, BUT ALL THE COALITION TROOPS THAT HAVE PULLED OUT…
    Amazing how when you stop killing. The completely WAR pace slows down!!
    AND by the way, where was the media. 128 Journalist killed. NOW we know why. HOW ABOUT THE REST, how have they been silenced????????

    Will we get truthful reports now??

    Lists are made of the deaths of US, Aussie and British military in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Why is there no count of the deaths of Iraqis and afghanis?

  3. barbpa says:

    Luke, the truth is that there is no good count of the MILLIONS of Iraqis who have died, been displaced, or are refugees. I refuse to put up anything that does not give proper weight to the situtaion they face. There is a blog from Baghdad Burning you might be interested in. She is a refugee living in Syria now.
