Code Pink Runs Anti-War Ads in Iraq


I am not sure what this is but IT belongs to Code Pink

Women for Peace took out full-page ads in 8 Iraqi newspapers today calling on Americans and Iraqi to come together to end the occupation of Iraq. The newspapers are As-sabah Al-Jadid, At-Taakhi, Al-Manar, Al-Haqaeq, Al-Iraq Al-Yaom, As-Syadah, Al-Adalah and Ash-Shahed.
It is sickening!!!!!
They are printed on line at: ( PDF files )
The ad calls on Americans and Iraqis to work together to stop the bloodshed and bring the US troops home. “We have seen in poll after poll that the majority of Americans and Iraqis want the US troops to return home. Even the majority of US troops (72%) think they should return by the end of this year. It is time for the politicians in both countries to listen to us, the people,” the ad says. The ad is linked to a website, in Arabic, where Iraqis can sign a petition and communicate directly with Americans, either by internet or through the mail. To view the website, go to www.esteklal.org.
“We are thrilled by the feedback we are getting,” says Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CODEPINK, a women’s peace group that sponsored the ads. “The newspapers are reporting that they are swamped with calls from readers saying that this ad gives them hope and makes them realize there are Americans who support their desires to be free from foreign occupation. We must find ways to work together to end the bloodshed.”
The ads are paid for by hundreds of CODEPINK supporters from around the country, including Annie Nelson, wife of renowned singer/songwriter Willie Nelson. “I have been heartbroken by all the death and destruction from this war in Iraq, and I am delighted to have a way to extend my hand in friendship to Iraqi mothers and their families,” says Mrs. Nelson.
The ads follow a weekend 24-hour peace vigil at the White House organized by CODEPINK to commemorate Mothers Day, May 14. The vigil included peace mom Cindy Sheehan, actress Susan Sarandon, comedian Dick Gregory, doctor/clown Patch Adams, and women from Iraq and Iran. It featured a concert, strategy workshops on grassroots organizing and national campaigns, an interfaith gathering, and writing and reading letters to Laura Bush urging her to pressure her husband to end the war.
Remember that Code Pink sent $600,000 to the insurgents in aid to Fallujah. And like that support for terrorists, these ads were paid for with money Cindy Sheehan helped to raise.
Remember, too, that Code Pink, Mother Sheehan’s operation and even Truthout are all tax-payer supported 501c3 “charities.”
We used to call this treason! And it still is!!

Jimmy Carter Screw You Peanut Breath!

Carter denounces Israel’s new plan to redraw border
WASHINGTON (AFP) – Former president Jimmy Carter has denounced plans by Israel’s new prime minister to unilaterally establish the geographical boundaries of the Jewish state, saying that such a move would be in violation of international accords.

“It is inconceivable that any Palestinian, Arab leader, or any objective member of the international community would accept this illegal action as a permanent solution to the continuing altercation in the Middle East,” Carter said in a commentary published Tuesday in USA Today.

He said Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s plan, which would involve Israel ceding some ground but taking about one half of the Palestinian West Bank and encapsulating the urban areas within a concrete wall and fence barrier, was a recipe for disaster.

“This confiscation of land is to be carried out without resorting to peace talks with the Palestinians, and in direct contravention of the ‘road map for peace’, which President (George W.) Bush helped initiate and has strongly supported,” said Carter, the architect of the 1978 Camp David peace accords between Egypt and Israel.

He added that Olmert’s plan would be in clear violation of the Camp David treaty as well as the 1993 Oslo accords and UN Security Council resolutions.
Carter said a better course would be for Israel to launch peace talks with Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority, under the auspices of the international Quartet, made up of the United States, the European Union, United Nations and Russia.

“A mutual Israeli-Palestinian agreement would undoubtedly result in full recognition of Israel by all Arab nations, with normal diplomatic and economic relations, and permanent peace and justice for the Palestinians,” Carter, who now heads the non-profit Carter Center, said.

“It would also remove one of the major causes of international terrorism and greatly ease tensions that could precipitate a regional or even global conflict.”

Wild Thing’s comment……
Memo to Jimmy: STFU you pathetic snivelling weasel!! The documents and past negotiations you cite are “no longer operative” since the Palis have violated them at every turn and have now elected the most openly terrorist leadership yet. Israel can do anything it deems necessary to its security and the Palis and their terror masters can just stuff it. Jimmy, how DARE you cite the “road map” and Oslo as somehow binding on Israel when the Palis have violated both the spirit and the details of every such effort to achieve peace?
I have an idea for peace: let’s watch Israel define its own borders (preferably as expansively as possible), seal them as completely as possible, and declare that ‘negotiations’ are no longer possible due to the failure of the Pali terrorists to observe the most elemental norms of human civilization.

A Heads UP Regarding Ahmadinijad

Ex-Military Intelligence chief Ze’evi warns of impending world jihad ‘tsunami’

Former Military Intelligence chief Aharon Ze’evi
By Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondent
Former Military Intelligence chief Aharon Ze’evi warned Monday morning of an impending world jihad “tsunami” that he said may soon descend on the entire Middle East.

Ze’evi, speaking at a Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies conference in Tel Aviv University, said that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinijad has been overheard promising the “end of history in two or three years.”

Ze’evi recommended that the Iranian threats be taken seriously, saying that Tehran will soon have nuclear warhead compatible surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 5,000 kilometers, putting Europe within striking distance.
Ze’evi also warned that Israel should not rule out the possibility of a conventional war against Islamic militants.
Ze’evi said he foresees this war breaking out on Israel’s northern frontier, against Syria and Hezbollah.
Emphasizing the radicalization of Islamic militancy, Ze’evi cited recent changes in the objectives of major militant organizations, which have recently begun targeting sites in Arab countries.

“We are seeing attacks carried out in Amman, Dahab and Sharm el-Sheikh,” said Ze’evi.

He cited the increased accessibility of Internet in the Arab world as facilitating the process, saying, “Today, anyone who is interested can learn how to blow up a bomb.”

Major General (Res.) Ze’evi stepped down as chief of Military Intelligence about four months ago, and was replaced by Major General Amos Yadlin.

Venezuela May Sell U.S. Jets To Iran

Venezuela May Sell U.S. Jets To Iran
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) —
Complete article HERE
Venezuela’s military is considering the possibility of selling its fleet of U.S.-made F-16 fighter jets to another country, perhaps Iran, a Venezuelan military official said Tuesday.
Venezuela’s military is considering the possibility of selling its fleet of U.S.-made F-16 fighter jets to another country, perhaps Iran, a Venezuelan military official said Tuesday.
In response to a U.S. ban on arms sales to President Hugo Chavez’s government, Gen. Alberto Muller, a senior adviser to Chavez, told The Associated Press he had recommended to the defense minister that Venezuela consider selling the 21 jets to another country.
Muller said he thought it was worthwhile to consider “the feasibility of a negotiation with Iran for the sale of those planes.”
Even before the United States announced the ban on arms sales Monday, Washington had stopped selling Venezuela sensitive upgrades for the F-16s.
Chavez previously has warned he could share the U.S. jets with Cuba if Washington does not supply parts for the planes.
He also has said he may look into buying fighter jets from Russia or China instead.

Noam Chomsky Needs His Passport Cancelled ASAP

MIT professor Noam Chomsky met with Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah in Beirut today and branded the U.S. a terrorist state.

“I think that Nasrallah has a reasoned argument and a persuasive argument that they (the weapons) should be in the hands of Hizbollah as a deterrent to potential aggression and there is plenty of background and reasons for that. So, I think his position, if I am reporting it correctly, and it seems to be a reasonable position, is that until there is a general political settlement in the region and the threat of aggression and violence is reduced or eliminated, there has to be a deterrent. The Lebanese army cannot be a deterrent.”

There is a meaning to the word terrorist, in fact you can read a definition of term terrorist is the U.S. code of laws. It gives a very clear, precise, adequate definition of the word terrorist. have been writing about terrorism for 25 years always using the official U.S. definition [of the word “terrorist”], but that definition is un-usable, and the reason is that when you use that definition it turns out, not surprisingly, that the U.S is one of the leading terrorist states, and the other states become terrorist or non-terrorist depending on how they are relating to U.S. goals.”

“The regional superpower Israel is threatening to attack it [Iran], the U.S. is threatening to attack it. These threats alone are outright violations international law and of the U.N. charter. Iran is in difficulty. Iran has been trying for some years to negotiate settlement but the U.S. just refuses.”

Noam Chomsky’s Love Affair with Nazis
Frontpage Magazine
Rarely has the world been afforded such a clear glimpse into the unholy alliance between Islamic extremists and secular radicals in the West. That’s exactly what it got last week when the foremost Imam of the radical Left, Noam Chomsky, bestowed his blessings on the world’s largest terrorist army, the Shiite jihad outfit sponsored by Iran and known as Hezbollah (“Party of God.”)
Following a meeting with Hassan Nasrallah, the Lebanese terrorist group’s “secretary general,” Chomsky announced his support for Hezbollah’s refusal to disarm. Then, in an echo of Nasrallah’s recent declaration that President Bush is the world’s top “terrorist,” Chomsky pronounced his own fatwa on the United States calling it one of the “leading terrorist states.” It was a meeting of murderous radical minds.
In many ways, Chomsky’s newly forged friendship with Hezbollah — the most recent entry in a lifetime befriending America’s most deadly enemies — is the logical continuation of the professor’s longstanding admiration for global terrorists and Jew-haters. In fact, Chomsky devoted most of the nineties to touting Hezbollah as a “resistance” movement (which occasionally committed misguided acts against civilians) while singing its praises as a crusader for peace and social justice.
Wild Thing’s comment……..
I don’t think Chomsky has ever met a dictator or terrorist he didn’t like.His hatred of the US,Israel,and democracy is pathalogical. The articles above once again call the jihadists radical, I just have this to say……. I have yet to hear a Muslim speak that is not radical.

US Sanctions Venezuela Over Terrorism

US sanctions Venezuela over terrorism: official
Mon May 15, 2006 – 1:20 PM ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States imposed sanctions on Venezuela on Monday, banning all arms sales to a major oil supplier for what it believes is a lack of help in Washington’s war on terrorism, a State Department official said.
The move plummets the two nations’ ties to their worst level in decades and comes after years of antagonism between leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Washington on issues ranging from trade to oil prices.
The United States is concerned about Chavez’s friendly relationship with Cuba and Iran, two countries it says sponsor terrorism, and his failure to stop Colombian leftist guerrillas using Venezuelan territory, the U.S. official said.
Venezuela has warned for months the United States would move against it over terrorism but says it cooperates with Colombia against guerrillas and denies its ties with countries that are U.S. foes mean that it helps militants.

Dialing and the Democrats ~ Democrats Trying to Protect the Terrorists

New York Sun Editorial
No sooner had the man who ran the National Security Agency for years been nominated to head the CIA than USA Today rushed out details of our efforts to use technical means to find terrorists using the phones. And no sooner had USA Today disclosed details of an apparent attempt by the National Security Agency to defend Americans from terrorists than the Democratic Party and its leading politicians and interest groups went on the attack. Not against the terrorists but against President Bush.

“This is another example of the Bush Administration misleading the American people,” said a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee, Stacie Paxton.

Senator Kennedy of Massachusetts called the program “abusive” and said :

“Today’s shocking disclosures make it more important than ever for the Republican Congress to end its complicity in the White House cover up of its massive domestic surveillance program. When three major telephone companies are supplying the administration with records of all Americans regardless of any hint of wrongdoing, Congress can’t look the other way.”

Rep. Harold Ford Jr., a Democrat of Tennessee, went on Fox News Channel to call the news “disturbing.” Senator Clinton pronounced herself “deeply disturbed.”

Mrs. Clinton might want to have a talk with her husband. It was President Clinton who signed into law the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act of 1994, after it was passed in both the House and Senate by a voice vote.
That law is an act “to make clear a telecommunications carrier’s duty to cooperate in the interception of communications for law enforcement purposes, and for other purposes.

” The act made clear that a court order isn’t the only lawful way of obtaining call information, saying, “A telecommunications carrier shall ensure that any interception of communications or access to call-identifying information effected within its switching premises can be activated only in accordance with a court order or other lawful authorization.”

The law that President Clinton signed into law and that was approved by voice votes in 1994 by a Democrat-majority House and a Democrat-majority Senate not only made clear the phone companies’ “duty” to cooperate, it authorized $500 million in taxpayer funds to reimburse the phone companies for equipment “enabling the government, pursuant to a court order or other lawful authorization, to access call-identifying information that is reasonably available to the carrier.”
Again, the law, by referring to “other lawful authorization,” states clearly that a court order isn’t the only form of lawful authorization possible.
President Bush struck exactly the right notes yesterday.

“So far we’ve been very successful in preventing another attack on our soil,” Mr. Bush said. “As a general matter, every time sensitive intelligence is leaked, it hurts our ability to defeat this enemy. Our most important job is to protect the American people from another attack, and we will do so within the laws of our country.”

If he seemed calm about the latest disclosures, we can’t help wondering whether it’s because he recognizes that when Americans go to sleep at night, they’re less worried about the “danger” that the government is looking for terrorists than they are about the danger that terrorists are looking for them.
This is the issue that the Democrats of the Howard-Dean-John-Kerry era just don’t seem to prepared to credit. The Democrats who controlled the White House and both houses of Congress in 1994 showed signs of understanding the national security issues at stake here when they passed the law. Their understanding seems to have eroded since then. It can’t be that they feel America faces less of a threat – if anything, the attacks of September 11, 2001, make the case for such programs even stronger. What’s changed isn’t the enemy threat but the party that now controls the White House. Which explains why Mrs. Clinton is “deeply disturbed” about activities legal under a law her husband signed.
And then there is also this…..based on a Newsmax article the dimwittocRATS actually are going to try to stop the NSA terrorism surveillance programs. They’re joining a lawsuit to do just that.
Dems Join Suit to Ban Terrorist Surveillance

71 House Democrats signed up to sponsor a move that would make it illegal for the NSA to continue to monitor terrorist phone calls.
The liberal web site Raw Story reported Thursday:
“The 71 Democrats and one independent filed an amicus brief in two federal courts reviewing challenges to the warrantless wiretapping program in Detroit and New York, joining the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights.”
“Both suits demand the program be stopped.”

Michigan Democrat John Conyers led the charge:

“As our brief makes clear, this Congress dealt with this issue authoritatively almost 30 years ago – warrantless spying on American soil is flatly prohibited,” he railed.

Wild Thing’s comment…..
It seems if you can find a method to catch terrorists, the Democrats and their ACLU handmaidens can find a way to try to stop it. But then we already KNOW the Democrats are on the side of the terrorists!
During WW II, President Roosevelt ordered the Post Office to open and read all mail to and from American citizens where the mail came from or went to any jurisdiction currently controlled by the Axis powers. This was far more intrusive, and done without Congressional approval, compared to the present program of noting patterns of numbers called, without looking into the contents of the phone calls, and being done under a law duly passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton.
Both the Democrats and their supporters in the press are counting on the gross ignorance of the American public about American history, including what we did during and after WW II. So far, and sadly, the ignorance they are counting on seems to be endemic among the American people.

Guard the Borders Blogburst

Reformation or Revolution?
by Heidi and Kit at Euphoric Reality
Tonight, the President will address the nation on his plans for illegal immigration. Unfortunately, he’s already given his word to Vicente Fox on Sunday that his plan to put a few National Guard troops on the border is just a temporary formality, of sorts, and not meant to intimidate anyone. Right. Heaven forbid we intimidate anyone to deter them from breaking our laws!
The question then arises, who does Bush feel more compelled to explain himself to – us Americans or the Mexicans? He owes the American people everything , and the Mexican government nothing! So why is he assuring Fox of anything concerning our internal national policies?!
I have no illusions about what we’ll hear from President Bush tonight. But before he tries to lull anyone into complacency tonight, let’s look at the reality of the Goode Amendment, which Bush will no doubt reference in his speech tonight. Troops on the border to bolster security? It’s not what it sounds like:

OK, here are the dirty little secrets.
“(d) Conditions of Use- (1) Whenever a member who is assigned under subsection (a) to assist the Bureau of Border Security or the United States Customs Service is performing duties at a border location pursuant to the assignment, a civilian law enforcement officer from the agency concerned shall accompany the member.”
So, each military member will simply now be a buddy for a Border Patrol guy.
Now look at this;
“(2) Nothing in this section shall be construed to–
(A) authorize a member assigned under subsection (a) to conduct a search, seizure, or other similar law enforcement activity or to make an arrest;”
So, the military has nada authority.
BUT it gets better;
“(h) Termination of Authority- No assignment may be made or continued under subsection (a) after September 30, 2007.’”
This is a ONE YEAR DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bush’s speech tonight seems to be a weak bid to stem the hemorrhage of voters from the Republican Party. As the party’s leader, Bush has a responsibility to lead and direct his party, and he may just be leading it to a crushing defeat in the upcoming elections. People who voted for Bush not once, but twice, are abandoning the Republican Party in droves. On a recent news radio poll, 80% of the callers who had voted for Bush twice, now heartily disapprove of him. Of that 80%, 90% of them said it was due to his mishandling of our border security. But Democrats shouldn’t celebrate any victories yet, because it’s not just Republicans – what it’s doing to the two-party system is even worse.
This issue is splitting the American people into a majority who demand border security and immigration enforcement and a small, but vocal minority who demand amnesty. There are now two schools of thought coalescing around the faltering Republican Party and its bumbling missteps. The debate is happening now and we need to be a part of it. So let’s debate!
Kit and I dove into this a little deeper and have each represented a school of thought concerning the future of the Party, and by extension, our two party-system. In the interest of full disclosure, Kit is an increasingly-reluctant Republican and I am a furious Independent (formerly Republican who split from the party over a year ago).
