Where are the Weapon of Mass Destruction Mr. Bush?

 Civilization is the encouragement of differences. Civilization thus becomes a synonym of democracy. Force, violence, pressure, or compulsion with a view to conformity, is both uncivilized and undemocratic."
Mohandas Gandhi

"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is brought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?"
Mohandas Gandhi

These are our brothers and sisters

Who gave there lives

Unselfishly

Not for fame and glory but because they were told.



"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent." Mohandas Gandhi

"A man is but the product of his thoughts.

What he thinks, he becomes." Mohandas Gandhi
 
 

There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud.

Edward Kennedy



Note to the readers:

I have a great respect for the soldiers and their family for their ultimate sacrifice, to say that it was in vain would be the greater insult to their memory and their patriotism. I would like those who have benefited from their sacrifice to be accountable. It is not business as usual, Mr. Bush where are the weapon of mass destruction?

"Iraq's War" The men and women who fought and died.

My War, My Story ( after viewing the movie, please take a minute and leave a comment.)


This documentary is a candid highlight of Iraq's war.  Vets from across the country talk about their position on the war. Most of these vets remain loyal yet question the U.S. involvement in Iraq. This documentary is not a statement from the political left– many of these vets have a conservative backgrounds.

The outrage shown by some vets of how corporations has made billions at their expense come mostly from the working class. The documentary highlight the difficulties to resume their life that patriotism made them go, greed made them expendable.

You will also hear of civilians killed at checkpoints. Eric, from Chicago describes the accidental slaughter of three generations of a family. Jimmy from North Carolina ordered his Marines to open fire on a speeding car, which turned out to be full of civilians. What effects do incidents like these have in the long run on returning vets?

The film is divided into ten topical sections:
Why Are We in Iraq?
Support the Troops
On Coming Home, etc.
The style is very open, candid and informal. There is some footage from Iraq, including live combat footage involving one of the vets. Many of the vets remain very troubled by their experiences. For them, the war will never be over

















Our entire country is still paying for this war. Some more then other, some gave the ultimate sacrifice, "their live". There is no "weapon of mass destruction", the Iraqi people do not want the US soldiers on their soil, it was all an intelligent blunder... how can mother, fathers, sisters and brothers who lost someone can be reconciled with such an excuse?
We should all be patriots, give our lives to defend and protect our unique "constitution, liberties and justice." But democracy is not synonym of Capitalism, capital gain should not justify a war, even more so when only few profit and the whole loose.

"Big Bucks, Big Pharma" What you don't know will hurt you

This ABC documentary is an eye opener on the practice of Pharmaceutical industry. When a government put capital gain before the welfare of its people. You must see this documentary to understand the argument that is debated today about health care, insurance, doctor and laboratory.

"Big Bucks, Big Pharma" pulls back the curtain on the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry to expose the insidious ways that illness is used, manipulated, and in some instances created, for capital gain. Focusing on the industry's marketing practices, media scholars and health professionals help viewers understand the ways in which direct-to-consumer (DTC) pharmaceutical advertising glamorizes and normalizes the use of prescription medication, and works in tandem with promotion to doctors. Combined, these industry practices shape how both patients and doctors understand and relate to disease and treatment. Ultimately, "Big Bucks, Big Pharma" challenges us to ask important questions about the consequences of relying on a for-profit industry for our health and well-being.

Lisa Steinberg Conclusion and Blue Ribbon Campaign

In a report from 1997 from the CDC, the United States had the highest child homicide, suicide and firearms-related deaths of 26 developed country, of course children have been abused all through history and some believe we  are just beginning to face the true prevalence and significance of child abuse, others worry that many people have become obsessed with child abuse and deny personal responsibility for their problems.
  
It is my believe that child abuses are inflicted by mentally ill perpetrators ( men or women) regardless of race, age and social status. When adults use they power over children to subjugate, to control, to take on other role but of a protector, those adults have cross a threshold of conscience right and wrong thus to mental illness.  Otherwise how can one justify inhuman tortures inflected to harmless infants or children.

The other big problem in our society is the bureaucracy  surrounding the agencies responsible to protected the children. Overloaded by to many cases, looking to protected the parents right and the child's right, they sometime forget they are dealing and representing innocent and helpless children who lie on them for their safety.  The different agencies had have ample warning for Lisa Steinberg.  The tenants of the Steinberg's building and their neighbors were very outspoken. "We reported it to all the proper agencies" one said. A neighbor said to have called child abuse hot lines and responding investigator couldn't find sufficient evidence, William Grinker then New York's commissioner of human resource said that the reports of child abuses at the Steinberg household were mishandled. Mishandled doesn't make me feel better, knowing that this child could have been saved from a house of horror. I believe the investigation been so mismanaged had to do with Mr. Steinberg been a lawyer. Blue Ribbon Awareness is to remind us of all the Lisa's and Alissa's (1995), and to not hesitate to intervene when abuse is suspected.
