Watergate Summer:
An Illegal Ruler heard UnGodly Evil Voices in his head telling him to go to War, and so the Nation, Our Country launched an Illegal War based on Lies of This Regime. Millions have been killed and been Wounded and had their lives Altered Forever. The Damage is Immeasurable. Our Government and Leadership assisted,enabled and enacted this Evil Plan, and it is Time to End 5 years of Hell.

Welcome To Pottersville:
William Rivers Pitt: Why?
Five years in Iraq.
That's 1,825 days since "Shock and Awe" lit up the skies above Baghdad, all of which was captured live and in living color by unblinking CNN cameras with unobstructed views of the carnage.

What Do I Know?:
A Very Peaceful Protest
Though I hadn't read the NIE—the National Intelligence Estimate, I knew two things: Saddam Hussein had had nothing to do with 9/11, and there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Hans Blix, remember, had been searching in vain for months, and despite the best of clues from U.S. intelligence, had found nothing.

Iraq War - End the War Demonstrations Occurring Today - Attend in Thousand Oaks
With the blind following of the Bush administration’s path into crisis for this nation, it’s time Gallegly is replaced.
Attend this peaceful demonstration today to show your support for ending the Iraq war, and meet Mary Pallant.

When Will I Use This?:
I have Losts Of Questions
I don't have answers or explanations for the Iraq war. I am not a soldier and have never fired a weapon. I don't understand how violence and killing can solve humanity's problems.
I only have questions, many, many questions:
Can you believe that five years have past since the start of the Iraqi war?
Do you remember what you were doing?
Do you have the same job?
Has your life improved due to this war?
How many scandals has the Bush Administration weathered since the start of the war?
How many limbs have been lost?

White Rabbit:

Who Hijacked Our Country:
The Cakewalk: Year Six
And just think, if John McCain gets elected we might continue this crazy funfest for ninety-five more years (or was that 995?).

Who's the Boss?
March 19: Against the Irag War Blogswarm
I was a na├»ve teenager when my mother left the VA for work in public health. I certainly didn’t understand the war, the aftermath, the loss, the grief, the pain. I remember once my mother talking in hushed tones with my stepfather about how glad she was my brother was practically blind without his glasses. It meant that he’d never have to serve on the front lines. I didn’t get what she meant then.

Why We Need to Impeach Bush

Wolves in the City:
Iraq - A Ghastly Birthday
Bush’s Iraq War is now five years old.He and Cheney and Rumsfeld and Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell dragged us into it on a leash of lies. One of those duplicitous links was acknowledged by the Pentagon last week when it came out with a report showing no connection between Saddam and Al Qaeda. The other whopper was about those elusive weapons of mass destruction.

The Workday Liberal:
The Iraq Credulity Test
There is an awful lot of heat being generated around the intertubes regarding the Iraq war. I would encourage anyone browsing through the news to apply a very simple test when considering who should or should not be taken seriously while pontificating on the situation we face in Iraq today.

World Against War:

World of Doorman-Priest:
O Lord: How Long? (No comments required)
Eternal Spirit
Earth-Maker, Pain-bearer, Life-giver,
source of all that is and that shall be,

Wounded Bird:
Iraq War Blogswarm
The numbers of refugees inside and outside Iraq total between 2 million and 4 million, many of them living desperate and dreadful lives in refugee camps. The countries which admitted them do not have endless resources to care for them. We should be helping those countries more than we are now.

Writer Reading:
A War Based on Lies Will Only End With a President Who Values Truth
We writers would all be incredibly lucky to ever write anything with a fraction of the chilling beauty, complexity of thought and truthfulness of this speech that Obama wrote himself, from the heart, which he, unlike some other politicians, apparently actually has.
