A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by Carol Korreck

From the beginning, this presidency has been a media blitz. It has been all about marketing and getting those great photo ops. It seems blatantly obvious to me that if there is a need to sell a war to the American public, there must be a problem with the actual reasons for the intended war. Starting with the tragedy of the twin towers, this administration seized the opportunity to show our tough, fearless leader (who was finally coaxed away from "My Pet Goat") on top of a pile of debris with his megaphone promising revenge to the enemy who dared to inflict such catastrophe on United States soil.

"Evidence that Bin Laden is still directing al-Qai'da operations, despite the best efforts of the US military and a $50m (£25m) price on his head, will be a blow to President George Bush who staked his reputation on winning the 'war on terror.'" Another "blow" for George Bush and the Repuglicans, has got to be that money does not buy everything!

"We are a nation of Charlie Browns, with the Bush administration holding the football."

A journalist I know who has spent a lot of time in Iraq tells the story of talking to an American infantry major in Baghdad the day Saddam's statue was toppled in Firdos Square, almost four and a half years ago.

What did the groundhog of terror say when
He crawled out from under his boulder?
I'm just guessing that he tearfully admitted,
"Sometimes I cry on Allah's shoulder."

No matter how good your policies are, if you want to win hearts and minds, you really have to start with the heart. Otherwise, people don't care much what's on your mind.

Cindy Sheehan: Pigs of War

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

“I believe it is imperative that we never lose our voice of dissent, regardless of political pressure. As Martin Luther King, Jr said: ‘there comes a time when silence is betrayal’… However, it is unforgivable that Congress has been unwilling to examine these matters or take action to prevent these circumstances [executive branch crimes] from occurring again.”

Was it a mistake?

There's something definitely screwy about the August 30 incident in which a B-52 bomber flew from Minot AFB in North Dakota to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana carrying five fully armed Advanced Cruise Missiles, each equipped with nuclear bombs capable of exploding at anything from 5 kilotons to 150 kilotons.
