A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

Since June of 2005, BuzzFlash has been honoring a weekly "Wings of Justice Award Winner
," generally nominated by our readers.

The "Wings of Justice Award" is meant to give recognition to, as did John F. Kennedy’s "Profiles in Courage," an act of patriotic courage on the part of an individual – or group. Some of the persons who have won the award might otherwise have even been supportive of positions we might disagree with, but at some point they stood their ground for the Constitution, truth and justice.

Well, now, were we led down the road to hell intentionally -- was bringing “democracy” to Iraq just a ploy to conquer Iraq and make it the center of operations for world domination? Did George Bush, Dick Cheney, and the neo-cons ever really want a democratic government in Iraq, or is all the death and destruction, chaos and confusion, a calculated rationale to expand the war and justify an everlasting occupation to include the entire Middle East? Was controlling a major source of the world’s energy a necessary component of the over-all scheme?

Has Baghdad captured Petraeus just as Philadelphia captured General Howe?

When top British general Sir William Howe marched his powerful professional army of Redcoats, American Loyalists, and German mercenaries into Philadelphia in 1777, it appeared the American Revolutionary War was over.

On NPR today, they were talking to residents on the Texas/Mexico border near McAllen and Reynosa. I had spent time there in college and later on as well.

I didn't have to pull together some kind of blue ribbon panel
To figure out I now no longer need a certain cable channel.

Mike Elston is the fifth official who has left his post
In this particular loaf of bread, everybody's toast.

One by one from their pedestals, they have all crept down
Pretty soon, the DOJ will have no one left to step down.
