LA Times the First to Show the Full Extent of the Sacrifice....

The American soldiers Bush has sent in to secure permanent bases in Iraq and ensure a firm American neocon grip on the oil spigot are going through a meat grinder so stupifyingly, horribly, mind-numbingly brutal, the mind simply blanks with horror at the sight of their pain.

The LA Times is the first in America to really break the story, and to show just what young Americans in Iraq are sacrificing. Not to mention the toll on Iraqi civilians. If these images don't move you to take action against the appalling ongoing slaughter, your heart is stone, and your humanity is lost.

Today is a fine day to help stop the killing.

Quote of the Day:
"You call yourself a Christian
I think that you're a hypocrite
You say you are a patriot
I think that you're a crock of shit

And listen, I love gasoline
I drink it every day
But it's getting very pricey
And who is going to pay

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con.... Yeah

It's liberty for all
'Cause democracy's our style
Unless you are against us
Then it's prison without trial

But one thing that is certain
Life is good at Haliburton
If you're really so astute
You should invest at Brown & Root.... Yeah

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con
If you turn out right
I'll eat my hat tonight

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah....

It's getting very scary
Yes, I'm frightened out of my wits
There's bombers in my bedroom
Yeah and it's giving me the shits

We must have loads more bases
To protect us from our foes
Who needs these foolish friendships
We're going it alone

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con
Where's the money gone
In the Pentagon

Yeah ha ha ha
Yeah, well, well

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Neo con"
--Mick Jagger, "My Sweet NeoCon"
