An Open Letter to The Media

To Whom it SHOULD concern:

Every single time you mention Hurricane Ivan take a look at this picture:


Collateral Damage Has Faces Posted by Hello


Every single time you mention the Swift Boat Liars, take a look at the above picture.

Every single time you quote some stupid fucking poll showing Bush as a 'strong leader', take a look at the above picture.

Every single time you quote some Republican Bush war-apologist, take a look at the above picture.

Shame on you. Shame on everyone who supports Bush and his war of choice. Shame on us all for allowing Bush, a disgrace of a human being, to kill innocent children.

YT, silently weeping.

Blonde nod to Attaturk.

And Bush, the lying liar, responds with the following lies:

Bush Downplays Violence in Iraq

WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 (Xinhuanet) -- US President George W. Bush downplayed on Tuesday the deadly unrest in Iraq after a car bombing in central Baghdad killed more than 50 people.

"Despite ongoing acts of violence, Iraq now has a strong prime minister, a National Council, and national elections are scheduled in January," Bush said at a campaign rally.

Bush vowed that the United States would help Iraq move towards the elections scheduled in January next year.

"We will help them move towards elections, we will get them on the path of stability and democracy as quickly as possible, and then our troops will return home with the honors they have earned," Bush said.

Over 50 people were killed in a car bombing blast near a police station in Haifa street in central Baghdad on Tuesday, and at least nine cars were destroyed in the powerful blast which sent thick plumes of black smoke into the sky.

Haifa street was the scene of a fierce battle between US forces and Iraqi insurgents on Sunday, in which at least 13 people were killed and 55 others wounded.

More than one year after Bush declared the Iraq war ended, the insurgency in the country is increasing as more than 1,000 US soldiers have been killed since the Bush administration launched the Iraq war in March last year.

French President Jacques Chirac, a strong opponent of the Iraq war, said in Spain on Monday that the Iraq war had opened a Pandora's box and the situation in Iraq was not getting any better.

The American political situation now seems fully "Orwellian." War is Peace. Lies are Truth. Truth is Lies. Honestly, what IF a Bush-eater saw a picture like that, or many such pictures? Do you think they would re-consider? Would they think maybe the war was all a mistake? I don't think so. I think they would say that it's sad, but "necessary." You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. In the long run, it'll be worth it. They want to kill US, anyways. Kill them all, let God sort 'em out... I remember when this war first started, there was this famous picture of an Iraqi boy on a stretcher, his arms and legs had been blown off and his entire family killed. An American woman who saw this picture was quoted as saying, (by my memory), "Y'know, when I saw that picture of that boy on the stretcher, I knew that this war REALLY WAS about freedom, after all." I rest my case.

Shame on you for not showing the people jumping to their death from the towers on 9/11(yeah, remember that day?). Shame on you for not showing the Iraqis who had limbs cut off by your friend Saddam. Shame on you for not showing the women and children gassed by... again your pal Saddam. Shame on you for not showing the aftermath of a peaceful Palestinian suicide bombing. Shame on you for not showing the Russian school children shot in the back by Muslim exremists.
I'm guessing these examples of innocent death don't get you upset because you can't blame America.
How about some balance? Oh right, your a liberal.

Cool Blog, I never really thought about it that way.

Thank you - and keep up the thoughts!
