OMBFP - and then some...

The United States Congress passed a bill last week limiting war funding and calling for substantial withdrawal by next March.

President Bush is expected to veto. It is also expected that there are insufficient votes to override this veto, and this will lead to negotiations on a compromise bill.

Do you trust those who are against the war in the US Congress to stick to their policies and stand up for peace? If not, do you find any wholly political solutions likely or viable for the short-term in ending the Iraq War?

this one is going to be way too easy.


i've lost all my faith in elected officials at this point. except for dennis kucinich. and a few others. a handful of others....

i'm pissed.

promises of:

impeachment - gone. even the latest talk of it appears to be just talk. all hat and no cattle, as they say...
ending the war - gone. more hats, no cattle.

over 100 u.s. soldiers killed last month in iraq - fear and terror continue to reign supreme in the occupied territory of iraq.

sorry kids, i'm extra cynical today. they're going to drag this out until bush is replaced. i predict he'll be impeached AFTER he leaves office. the "war" will end AFTER he leaves office. the d's are too afraid they'll lose the whitehouse in '08 if they support something SO RADICAL as to call these criminals what they are. i hope with all of me that i' am wrong.

and then, this morning, i read that iran tops the state department's list of countries that sponsor terrorism. fancy that. i thought it was afghanistan. iraq. but, nope. it's iran. the whole country, just sitting there, sponsoring terrorism. why do we do that? lump everyone into one category, ALL of iran, and not be specific about who in iran? fact of the matter is, most of the folks in iran are most likely just like you and me. stuck in the crossfire...

i heard a theory the other day - that the power structure of iran may be developing nuclear energy because they know the oil is running out. hmmmmmm...

but i digress.

iraq. focus kara, focus.

the solution clearly isn't a political one, as the majority of politicians seem to be too busy worrying about their own political careers and/or ignoring the majority of the masses who are or who have turned against this "war." i don' t know what it will take to make them stop this insanity. a nationwide general strike, anyone?

speaking of which - it's mayday! to those who were shot and killed, to those who were persecuted and hung in events surrounding the haymarket riots - i don't believe the "official history" hype. some things never. change.
