BAck From IRAQ--and out on the streets

What are the reasons that drive groups like CODEPINK to hold week long vigils and tirelessly advocate for the end of the OIL war?
"Back from Iraq and out on the streets" is one reason. A reason that is, like the coffins at Dover Air Force Base, not allowed to be seen and not reported. But, bloggers can send this info out into the world. Tired of hearing about the "democracy" that the US delivered to Iraq? Tired of the spin from WMD's to votes and purple fingers? The reality appears much different from the spin.

Operation truth--reports from the people who served in Iraq

and of course, electronic iraq continues to tell the oil war from the eyes of the Iraqi people.
