---HE is bracing for more violence? Start a war, and then retire, pockets full from Halliburton et al profits? How many people have died in Iraq since the wonderfully democratic elections??????

Medbh,
It is getting more and more horrific at every turn. I am starting to feel like a kid again when Tricky Dick was running around raising Cain!

A casual vistor might think Medbh is ranting. Sadly, no. She's so right it's scary.

My favorite bumpersticker-- "If you're not appalled, you haven't been paying attention."

I think this is even worse than the Nixon years.

thank you for the Helliburton links, Thom H! They have prompted a letter to the editor. Will it be published? Who knows? This does get more and more appalling each day. Pax, I'm glad I'm not a kid again, though. Or it would be in the database and then shipped off to war, I'm sure. American parents should be very frightened, especially in light of Rumf*'s 12, 14, 6, 8 year Iraq war aka/freedom killing, timeframe.
