Iraq Veterans Memorial


Per the post below, here is the video for the Iraq Veterans Memorial. From the Memorial:
We are proud and honored to present to you the Iraq Veterans Memorial.

This memorial was conceived as a place to honor the servicemembers who lost their lives over the past four years during the Iraq War. By watching the videos, you will have the opportunity to learn about these heroes from those who knew them best -- their family, friends, and fellow servicemembers. Each man and woman represented in the memorial had attributes and qualities that made them unique, but they all have one thing in common - they were truly loved and are deeply missed.

Online Iraq Veterans Memorial Coming Soon


The weekend of March 17th will be the 4th Anniversary of the War In Occupation Of Iraq. As part of that observance, videos of the fallen -- As told through the voices of their friends and families -- will be put on YouTube by Brave New Films as part of a living Memorial to those soldiers. I have volunteered to provide a link to one of the videos on that day as a way to help remember just one of the many faces that this country and this Administration has so easily forgotten.

For a preview of the videos click this link (goes to YouTube) or to contribute your own video, go to

Four More Years! Four More Years! Wait...


UFPJ Calls for Local Actions on 4th Anniversary of the War in Iraq

Raise a toast to the Iraqi Occupation this St. Patrick's Day weekend, which celebrates its 4th (and sadly not last) anniversary. To help the celebration along, United For Peace & Justice plans a few observances of its own. As with any celebration, the more the merrier. Find a meetup near you and help the Administration mark this important date. I hope to attend the local events.

You Go To War With The President You Have.


Early this morning, on the Floor in the House of Representatives, Congressman Tim Ryan was speaking out against sending the additional 21,000 troops to Iraq without the proper equipment and had this jewel to share with his colleagues:
YOU GO TO WAR WITH THE PRESIDENT YOU HAVE. Not the one you wish you had.
Of course, I had to put it on a sticker...

Mooninite Captured

[Homeland Insecurity]

The situation has been resolved to the best of our country's capabilities.

OTOH, have we just emboldened the terrorists by showing them they need to use a different cartoon character to disguise their bombs?

Keith Olbermann is the only real Media

A few days ago I coined the slogan 'Copy Boy Media' because (the majority of) it sure isn't investigating or reporting. They're taking the copy provided to them and running it to the presses.
old and tired: the So Called Liberal Media
new and fresh: the Copy Boy Media
The first message is a tool of the Republican meme machine. The second is our tool that shows our derision for what the industry has sunk to. Tonight, Keith Olbermann broke out of the Copy Boy Media crowd and turned in a performance that, hopefully, will be THE watercooler discussion tomorrow morning.

This evening, Mr. Olbermann took Donald Rumsfeld to task for his comments yesterday to veterans. I know I buried the lead, but here is the big story. Go, read, and be amazed that commentary of this level has retuned to television. For the video inclined, here is where crooks and liars comes through again.

Arabic paper exposes secret program

Today's Daily Al Bayan (Dubai, United Arab Emirates) controversially exposed the secret Al Qaeda program "Nobody Obviously Sees How Idiotic" Tactic (NOSHIT), resulting in terrorist leaders lashing out against the paper today.

Numerous Islamic extremist figures have lashed out at Daily Al Bayan over an article describing a secret Al Qaeda program designed to pretend the US monitoring international financial transactions was a suprise to the organization, arguing that the publication of the article was a contemptable act and suggesting that the newspaper is "siding with the White House."

The paper's story went into detail about how Al Qaeda was well aware of the US Treasury's efforts to track them down, but discussed how members of Al Qaeda in Iraq and other countries put on an act in pretending not to know about those efforts. Abu Ayyub al-Masri was quoted as saying "Yes, we knew about their attempts to track our money, but we tried not to let on. We knew. They tried to keep it a secret, and for a while it stayed that way. Millions of people were oblivious to the United State's data mining programs. We called them 'American Citizens.'"

al-Masri went on to say "we stopped transferring large sums of money long ago. Now we rely on credit card and identity fraud. Thanks to our new partners, some cell called "VA", we have plenty of opportunities to continue the funding of our activities."
