“The horrific blast sent women engulfed in flames screaming through the streets. Two preteen girls embraced each other as they burned to death, witnesses said…a woman who clutched her infant child as she bled from a wound in her neck. ‘She mumbled some words incoherently,’ said Um Ali, 40. ‘Then she fell at my doorstep and died.'' This isn’t freedom and democracy, this isn’t progress, this is unspeakable horror unleashed by George Bush’s preemptive unnecessary war! My God, when is it going to end!

Hooray for Bill Clinton! It’s about time someone showed the Democrats how to fight! He didn’t sit still and take it while the yahoos at FOX news -- Chris Wallace in particular -- tried to paint a negative picture of Clinton’s efforts to get Osama bin Laden. I applaud President Clinton, I support his "in your face," "I’m not gonna take the crap you’re dishing out attitude" and I hope more Democrats will follow the example President Clinton set and come out fighting!

“A stark assessment of terrorism trends by American intelligence agencies has found that the American invasion and occupation of Iraq has helped spawn a new generation of Islamic radicalism and that the overall terrorist threat has grown since the Sept. 11 attacks.”

So much for the hollow boast that George Bush is better for the war on terrorism! A new US Intelligence Report tells us his preemptive unnecessary war in Iraq has “made the threat from terrorism GREATER…the situation in Iraq has worsened the US position”! (my emphasis) No matter how he spins his lies (the report is a product of 16 different intelligence services), the National Intelligence Estimate contradicts George Bush’s claims that the war in Iraq has made us safer. If you truly value your life and the lives of your children, you will vote Democratic in November!

There was a time when the United States granted safe haven sanctuary to those who feared torture and abuse in their home country! Unfortunately, in today’s world, George Bush is sending them back to their country for the specific purpose of torture and abuse! And some still wonder why the United States has acquired such a bad image world wide!

“Freedom and democracy” my behind! George Bush has brought the unspeakable horror of torture and abuse to Iraq! Preemptively invading Iraq has opened a Pandora’s box to unthinkable atrocities! He’s made the most disgusting agonies possible! Bush claims, “we don’t torture,” but thanks to his efforts to redefine the Geneva Conventions and “clarify” torture and abuse he has opened the door for those who do torture! "[Ahmad] found his friends’ bodies in the city’s Teb al-Adli mortuary. Mustafa’s right eye had been gouged out and his right leg broken. Other parts of his body appeared to have been penetrated by an electric drill, an increasingly common tool of torture in Iraq .”
