Why Are We Still Murdering People in Iraq?

The weekly Thursday vigil in front of the Federal building on Golden Gate Avenue continues as does the insane, evil occupation of Iraq by the United States military and tens of thousands of overpaid thugs working for sinister corporations like Blackwater.

Meanwhile, Senator Dianne Feinstein only seems to get upset when the warmongers are criticized, as her recent vote "condemning" the "Petraeus/Betray Us" ad put out recently by (for more, check out Jan Adams' "Happening Here" by clicking here).

There was new signage sponsored by the national American Friends Service Committee (the Quakers) which is trying to persuade Americans through monetary self-interest rather than moral appeals, though I doubt whether it will be any more effective in changing the status quo.

The present leadership of the United States is so outrageously tone deaf to how most people currently think and feel about the Iraq occupation, as evidenced by their latest votes in D.C., that it's starting to look like we need a complete clean sweep of these rotting politicians, and that includes Madame Speaker Pelosi, who is going to be remembered as one of the most inept enablers of tragedy in American history.

Hi, Mike. Note the temporary chain link fences the feds set up around the federal building in celebration of the Iraq Moratorium, which kicked off Friday.

Thanks for the shout out, Mike. Here's what the good Quakers are trying to get across: The Iraq war is now costing one half a million dollars a minute. A minute! Hard to get our minds around that.
