When, and how, exactly, does barbarism-as-usual become officially appalling, and how long will the head-rolling and buck-passing last before everything goes back to "normal" again?
Not much needs to be said here.
The police will as always be donning their Darth Vader gear...this includes objects of OFFENSE, and objects of defense.
We, as could-be revolutionaries must show that we are serious and to be TAKEN seriously.
(Bring 'em home NOW)
Most of us realize that war sucks, and we are not suprised about the activities going on at Abu Gharib (built by the british) We know damn well the responsibility lies with people higher up the ladder- Ultimately the Bush administration.
Why I'm not voting for any more Democrats.
Almost two years ago the Bush administration tried, but failed, to kill a United Nations treaty on torture, which the U. S. hasn't and will not ratify and sign.
Southwest Airlines announced May 5th that they are offering special discount fares to US military personnell.
Conflicts within protest communities are as old as history. Conservative Christian "feminists" were appalled when Alice Paul would not stop PICKETING the White House for women's votes. And I am tired of religious "peace keepers" DICTATING silence as conformist radical activism.
The latest pictures are in, the latest horror stories. Children raped and brutalized in front of helpless parents. People attacked with dogs, with broom handles, with unimaginable physical and psychological assaults. Sadistic sexual tortures right out of the sickest x rated snuff film. SOMEBODY FUCKING DO SOMETHING.
The feigned moral outrage, shock and indignation about revelations of POW abuse at Abu Ghraid prison in Iraq on the part of members of the Bush administration is difficult to accept.
Don't forget: Sunday is Mother's Day!
From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - soldier accused of torturing Iraqi prisoners had several stalking orders filed against him by wife in SW Pennsylvania...
American torture of Iraqi prisoners has been called "sadistic" but that unjustly demeans the memory of the Marquis de Sade. It is no such thing.
Anyone who has ever been dehumanized by a cop on the street, by guards in jail, or has been shredded in the U.S. criminal (in)justice system understands unwilling humiliation by an American authority, such as the Iraqi prisoners witnessed. It is as American as apple pie...
Multnomah County Circuit Court judge sentences man who killed his wife to 7 1/2 years in prison. Compare this with Jeffrey Luers' sentence.
<b>Torture of Iraqi Soldiers Indicative of Ongoing Policy of Systematic and Illegal Abuse</b>
There seems to be possible doubt that Donald Rumsfeld can remain effective.
There is an ugly connection between all of these seperate realities.

KBOO replays Christian Educational Ministries program, denouncing partial birth abortion and same gender sex.
Why are folks placing Teddy Bears outside the broken windows at the SE Divison Starbucks?
Who has been leaving Teddy bears at the site of Starbucks broken windows? Starbuckers disconnect with reality.
Whatever gave our troops the idea they could add humiliation to their repertoire? Apparently extreme interrogation procedures are "OK" under certain circumstances.
and American activities
"it's hard to be neutral on a moving train" and I'm not afraid to use the word enemy.
The Starbucks issue has gotten out of control
Endorsements? Or excrements?
I'd like to float a proposal on a Critical Mass compromise to the readers.

Culling the young of the lower classes through war. How to eliminate the opposition by attrition. Think about it. They aren't coming back alive. They may walk around for awhile, but they're already dead.

Video produced from photographs taken at the March 20, 2004 The World Still Says No To War rally and march in downtown Portland.
Look bellow at the Nuremberg Principles. Read through them VERY CAREFULLY. The US is violating all of these right now. With Bush's refusal to recognize and appologize for the torture of Iraq soldiers, freedom fighters, and civilians, we are presented with yet another violation of International Law that we are COMPLICIT in UNLESS we rise up and fight to stop it.
Requires Bush, as purported messenger of God, to provide God's message on central banking.
There has been an appeal for more humor here at the "selection 2004" page, so . . .
Essay exploring ways that radicals and anarchists can engage with and intervene in electoral politics with the goal of building the power of movements regardless of who is elected.

War is Hell! Peace is Better?
If We Want to Stop the War, We'll Have to End the Peace!
A review of all the latest atrocities shows that these policies cannot be mere incompetence. It sure seems like 'they' are trying to push the Hatred of America to new heights, like someone is trying to inspire 'the next attack' which will allow the bushies to declare martial law and end America as we know it. Look at this list of things they've done to purposefully create outrage and further the Hatred of the US.
This piece asks whether the Iraqi torture photos might be designed to seduce us into complicity with atrocities, and says that if we don't denounce these atrocities strongly then by default we condone and are complicit in the atrocities.
people keep on asking, it's time for an answer
CACI is not alone in waging hate against Arabs and Muslims.
ALBASHRA.NET was one of the most thorough alternative sites covering Iraq and was shut down yesterday.
This comes down after the Russian "War in Iraq" could no longer sustain itself. http://www.iraqwar.ru/?userlang=en
It was one year ago today that Kendra James was shot and killed by Scott McCollister of the Portland Police Bureau (PPB). Lofty words were exchanged after her death about how things would change, how the PPB had learned from it's "mistakes," how it would never happen again. On this day, one year later, it's time to look back.
Now the real reason that Bush refused to sign onto the International Court and worked so diligently to evade the Geneva Convention comes to light...

Has anybody seen a press release about this?
The latest dispatch from political prisoner Jeff 'Free' Luers imprisoned in Oregon for 22.5 years for the burning of 3 SUVs.
A BIG thank you and many blessings to all who participated in Mondays Mobilization to demand that the North Fraser Jail end it's attempt to starve Tre: WE WON!!!
Time's Person of the Year for 2003 is....The American Soldier.
4 States, 298 Cities/Counties Pass Anti-Patriot Act Resolutions
Anarchist political prisoner Jeff "Free" Luers said it best, and we as cultural revolutionaries had better heed the words contained within. Otherwise, the movement is doomed and the capitalist empire will remain yet standing.
I wrote this in February, after the defeat of Measure 30, for the Health Care For All - Oregon email list. HCAO sponsored the single-payer universal health care initiative Measure 30 in 2002.
Was this a Psych-op by the US and British, or truly tourture, or both?
An attempt to get people all worked up, over this so sensitive of issues!!! Maybe, just maybe, some good ol' conversation stuff.
The character and life of an admirable man.
In Iraq it's not a question to believe in US phrases of pseudo democracy, it's more the essential question to be a slave or not!
