"What Part of IT'S OVER, Don't You Understand?"
Hands to Work Hearts to God Mr. Kerry, who HAS been put to the challenge, but will not commit his own Democratic Party to a principled, honorable platform on the side of human needs, progress for the future and most plainly-Truth. This constrains and weakens the Party's reach. What can we People then expect him to do for America as a whole? It is our necessity to turn away from the insanity of illegal, unilateral, agressive wars against undefined enemies from poor countries. "What Part of *Over the Rainbow* Do You NOT Understand?"

The Forgotten Soldiers of Operation 'Iraqi Freedom'
Maurice, Victor, Steve, and Rob are just a few of the thousands of GI's returning from Iraq -- often with one or more limbs amputated, flown in with little notice under the cover of night and brought to Walter Reed military Hospital in Washington, D.C. Here, they're operated on, treated, fitted with prosthetics when possible, generally medicated, and given psychological and physical therapy. For the record, Walter Reed is the hospital where wounded soldiers returning from Vietnam went. No fanfare for these heroes. On top of the injuries they've had to endure to their bodies and hearts, they come home to be ignored by mainstream American media.

"They come here [to Walter Reed Hospital]19 or 20 old and when I see them leaving with missing limbs - I've seen up to 3 limbs gone off people and I don't think in our generation, we've seen this amount of harm done to young people", explained Major General Delaune on public radio in Minnesota. "During the Gulf War, there were about 3 soldiers wounded for every death. In the current Iraq war, there are 7 wounded for every death", says an article titled "New Technologies and Medical Practices Save Lives in Iraq" in a Knight-Ridder newspaper. The facts support this statement: the Kevlar vests the soldiers now wear save lives, not limbs. England's newspaper The Guardian reports that the medical personnel, overwhelmed, work 70-80 hours a week, and according to CBS, Washington's largest military hospital has had to borrow beds from its cancer ward to meet the swollen needs of its prosthetics ward. Still the hospital can't handle the load, and several wounded soldiers are being put up in a nearby hotel.

say it with me: 'US special virus program' 07.03.2004 11:41
Congresswoman Stephanie Jones calls for Congressional investigation of AIDS creation?
Last night the National Press got a dose of their own medicine. The 1971 flowchart, the "research logic" of the U.S. Special Virus program proved to be too much for an on hand skeptic. A former medical doctor for the U.S. government had to concede to the legitimacy of the document and the realization the United States government had played an "intentional" role in the "design", "production" and "proliferation" of the synthetic HIV/AIDS virus. --- We are hopeful that Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones will now call for the Congressional investigation of the U.S. Special Virus program. According to U.S. law, the 1971 flowchart and the progress reports are (some) evidence of the laboratory birth of AIDS. The people simply want the rest of the truth; the official documents of the U. S. Special Virus program (1948 - 1978). --- We believe the United Nations must finally show leadership and backbone and support with action and proper allocation, the immediate implementation of the "double blind" clinical trials of the U.S. patented cure for AIDS, patent #5676977.

Coup Coup: The US Media Says Aristide Fled
Jean-Bertrand Aristide fled Port-Au-Prince, the capital of Haiti yesterday...or at least that is what the US government would like you to think. This morning the president of Haiti spoke from exile in Africa to congressmember Maxine Waters and Randall Robinson of TransAfrica who told Democracy Now! that the president did not resign, he was kidnapped.

Aristide said that he was threatened by US "diplomats" who forcibly removed the president. Aristide was told that if he did not leave, Guy Phillipe, leader of the rebel army, would storm the capital and kill Aristide. He was then removed by helicopter and taken to the Central African Republic. Aristide was adamant that he did not resign, however the US has completed it coup attempt.

As early as four hours after the removal of Aristede, US and French troops entered Port-Au_Prince to "help restore order". That is what some corporate media sites are saying, as they continually push the myth that Aristide resigned.

GUESS WHAT? Human-shredder story framing 'evil Iraqi regime' ='baby incubator' lie of '03
NOTHING. NOTHING EXCEPT STINKING PROPOGANDA DAY AND NIGHT!

It remains to be seen whether this uncorroborated story turns out to be nothing more than war propaganda — like the stories on the eve of the first Gulf war of Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait taking babies from incubators and leaving them to die on hospital floors. What can be said, however, is that the alleged shredder provided those in favour of the war — by no means an overwhelming majority in Britain last March — with a useful propaganda tool.

The headline on Ann Clwyd's 18 March story in the Times was: 'See men shredded, then say you don't back war'.
