Kindergarten Thinking

I am listening to the President talk his pro-war rah rah. To me it all comes down to one question. If we win, by that I mean Iraq becomes free and democratic) does terrorism end?
Of course not.
I do believe the Prez is honorable in his thinking that war solves everything ( after all he is surrounded by The Vulcans) but war will not stomp out terrorism and going after Sadam ( an easier target) when 9.11 was the work of bin Laden is like saying an elephant is a giraffe.
It is time to stop the kindergarten thinking and get out of Iraq. June can't come soon enough.

That's when you say there are WMD's in Iraq and base a war on that "fact." Then when you need to present proof, you scramble to put up wallpaper.
THE BIG LIE was a technique used to present false information to the people, repeat it again and again, so the people begin to believe it, SCREAM it, so it sinks in and becomes accepted. An information officer named Geobbels used it extensively under the direction of Adolf Hitler.
Decide who the Fascists might be today.
If you love TV, take a look at the History Channel. BookTV is excellent too. You will find out unimagineable things that it's not PC to talk about. Don't swallow the poison pablum of more popular news outlets.
It is supremely difficult to find any truth today when everything is corporate owned. Journalism is nearly dead.
Good luck.

73 soldiers died since the beginning of April. 23 soldiers suicided last year.
We opened a snakepit.
If you want to be really frightened just turn on FOXnews, the ultraright megaphone. First everyone SCREAMS all of the time and they continue the lies..just minutes ago on Hannity and Holmes, one of the hosts stated *****SCREAMED****** the WMD's are real and we just haven't found them. Ugh!
Bogeymen and women. They remind me of that movie with Roddy Piper where the aliens are taking over the world and if you use special glasses you can see who they really are.
Wear your glasses. Put on a helmet too. We are living in strange and dangerous times.

Watch CNN and FOX so you can hear what everyone is saying. Add the Internet and news mags, and newspapers too. Out of the cacophony of noise you may be able to discern some TRUTH.

the IRAQI 2003 war depicted in a painting-a-day

With our soldiers, men and women, off to fight for our freedom and the freedom of Iraq, I wanted to do more than attend a demonstration. (I did one last week in Chicago and we were circled by police in riot gear and moved, literally smashed like sardines and moved, to a different area to be controlled. It was very frightening, especially after the recent e2 incident where people were crushed in a crowd. ) I want to know why we are doing this, and to that end I have decided to put my efforts into my art. To paint something, anything, is to get to gain intimate knowledge of it.

I am a war zombie. I watch CNN, C-SPAN, FOX, and ABC. I am seeking answers.

I have no taste for blood. It seems to me that an intellectual resolution could have been possible. Squabbling over the fence and threatening to sue doesnâ??t seem to mean much when the other guy is blasting the Iraqi landscape off the map.

I am wishing peace.

P.S. If you would like to know how oil-well fires are put out, check out â??Hellfightersâ?� starring John Wayne playing Red Adair.

P.P.S. When the Afghanistan War happened I kept asking, â??Where is the war coverage?â?� I wonder why there was so much pomp and circumstance with this war? And is this war about terrorism? What did we do in Afghanistan besides blow it up? If you havenâ??t accomplished your first goal (martyring Osama bin Laden) why are we starting a new fight?

P.P.P.S Do you know that in 1991 in a war lead by Bush the Elder, we abandoned the people? And the people were starving, they looted the artifacts from the cradle of civilization, so they could survive. Wealthy people all over the world now have these priceless treasures in their possession. Hopefully they are caring for them so they can be restored to Iraq after this war establishes peace for these people. If you would like to know more about the artifacts, go HERE
