A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Evelyn Pringle
It's time for Americans to face the cold hard truth that nothing will be accomplished by allowing the daily carnage in Iraq to continue, and if Bush has his way, our young people will be dying in this war profiteering scheme until hell freezes over. Congress needs to authorize funding to pull our troops out of that deathtrap and not one dime more.

More news that deserves outrage: "Insult to Injury -- New data reveal an alarming trend: Vets' disabilities are being downgraded." The Bush administration has got "talking the talk" down pat, but when it comes to the Bushies "walking the walk" American soldiers and their families can fogetta-bout-it! Whenever we hear Herr Bush spewing rhetoric about supporting our soldiers, just remember American troops were sent to battle in an illegal, unnecessary, preemptive war, without the proper equipment, without the proper training, without the proper numbers, and without the proper long-term hospital care and funding crucial to their recovery after being wounded in service to their country!

Update On The New Strategy In The Iraq War
More and more people keep getting blown up
But the White House is still unable to own up
That their "road map for peace" isn't on a roll;
The only thing surging is the daily death toll.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
It all started when two people were removed from a public town hall meeting hosted by President Bush in March 2005. They had not caused a disturbance or even entered the building; their lone offence was an anti-war bumper sticker on their car.

BuzzFlash,What these people need, Bush, Cheney, Rove, Rice, Rummy, is for Pelosi to take out her table again, and put impeachment and prosecution back on the menu if she wants their respect. Otherwise, they are going to keep treating her like an acting out college freshman or like one of their domestics, because none of these people ever do anything for themselves, even when it comes to murdering a town like New Orleans, or a whole country like Iraq.
One of the single biggest problems in US government and US society is that all of these people in the Bush administration, and those who cooperate with them or support them here and around the world, are very much underestimated, always underestimated. These criminals spend equal amount of time on planning their schemes, and then on how to make sure they never get credit for their schemes.
