Thanks luv2earn.

You're very welcome. Read it and weep. If anyone thinks for a minute Iraq WarScam was about liberating the Iraqi people, this should open their eyes.

Iraqi was a deep-dish pie filled with the 2nd largest oil reserves in the world, sitting ripe for the picking. It had everything going for it: The evil villain that needed to go, the suffering people (suffering from sanctions more than Saddam) and the Bush's best friends sitting right in the neighborhood (Saudis) plus Israel and Jordan and a couple more to boot who would make sure nobody got out of line.

The business plan was written about a decade before Miserable George II took office, the PNAC. The 'Pearl Harbor' they were needed was 9/11 and they cherrypicked and pieced together a web of scary 'data' and made anyone in Congress who opposed them seem unpatriotic (and you know how politicians don't want to look unpatriotic). They united us under the banner of fear and terror and away we went.

People who opposed it all over the world, millions, were scoffed at and called trouble-makers and cowards. The NeoCons and their followers stole 'christianity', 'hearing from God', 'patriotism' and everything else that some of us held dear and brought out the worst in most of us.

It's the closest I've come or ever want to come to hating anyone. I've seen people I care about disappear, their family members die. But I don't want to hate (although some will say I do, par for the course on message boards). I don't hate them. I just despise what they've done.
Despise it to the very core of my being.

And all of that will culminate in my vote for John Kerry. He's got four years to start to change things or he's next.
