Bush Iraq Speech Illustrated


Bush on Iraq - The Illustrated Speech April 10,2008


Today President Bush made a major speech on the Iraq War. It was lies as usual. So I decided to illustrated his words with pictures and sound from the real war. The media doesn't report what's really going on in Iraq. When over a thousand people held Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan at the National Labor College in Silver Springs, MD March 13-16 and heard dozens of veterans of of those conflicts testify as to what is really going on, the world's press was there, but in the US there was virtual Media Blackout.

It's like there's the real world and then there's an alternate reality of the "Surge" and "sectarian violence" that we get fed by Bush and the Media.

Sadr City Today: No Country For Old Men

The Truth is the US, is killing big time this Spring in Iraq.
Today there was a curfew all day and we shoot curfew violators

We are attacking parts of Baghdad and Basra with our aircrafts, bombs, missiles and helicopter gun ships. For weeks now we have cut off food to Sadr City, a Shiite ghetto of 2.5 million people. We have it surrounded by our Armour while we pound it from the air.

And it is no the legendary Al Qiada that we are killing in Sadr City and Basra. It is the Shiites, the same people that Saddam Hussein came down on. As Hussein killed the Father, we are trying to kill the Son. We are killing the Shiites so badly they long for the days of Saddam Hussein.

There is a Media Blackout, and Bush has given Petraeus a free hand to do whatever it takes to put down the rebellion...
If you don’t know what that means, then you need to see
Vietnam: American Holocaust.

General Odom Debunks "The Surge"


On Wednesday, April 2, 2008 Senator Biden held hearings in the Foreign Relations Committee about the Security Situation in Iraq. Lt. Gen. William E. Odom (Ret.) - Former Director (1985-1988), National Security Agency, General Barry R. McCaffrey,(Ret.) - U.S. Army, Major General Robert H. Scales, Jr.(Ret.)- U.S. Army and Michele A. Flournoy- Co-Founder and President, Center for a New American Security testified. General Odom didn't go along with the alternate "reality" that everyone off was feeding on. When asked his strategy for getting out of Iraq he said "Plane and boats. You get on trucks and drive the trucks to the boats." I have put his excellent statement on the current situtation in Irag up on YouTube.
