Don't cry baby, people are working very hard to get America out of Iraq, and to put the BAD men in jail..

This Saturday, July 23rd, is a very important day. It is the third anniversary of the Downing St. memo's. There are
actions all over the country that are scheduled for this Saturday, in order to make the American public aware of the gravity and importance of those memos. JOIN ONE!

Iraq's hospitals under strain")

The Plame expose is connected to the Downing Street Memos. Want the skinny on the Plame outing? From Truthout, "In 16 now infamous words in Bush's 2003 State of the Union speech, the president - desperate to gain support for an invasion he was dead set on initiating - tried to scare Americans into believing Iraq was close to making nuclear weapons. "The British government," he told the nation, "has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." But the key documents that the claim was based on had already been proved to be fakes, and other intelligence reports along these lines were extremely speculative.
In fact, it was a CIA-organized mission by Wilson to the African country of Niger (where he had served as ambassador) that determined the reports were false. Wilson was therefore shocked to hear the uranium claims in the president's speech. When he exposed the chicanery in a New York Times commentary, Wilson became a prime target for a White House smear job."

So, that is the skinny on the Plame/Iraq War/Downing St. memos. Our War Pres and his smelly crew concocted a war, and created such human misery, all because ......They wanted to. Rich Texas egos run big, even when they are all show, and no cattle. For more detailed, yet so readable reports on this issue, read the leftcoaster's, truthout's, the economist, and the rudepundits posts on it, you won't be bored.
And you will see yet more ways in which the Bsh administration, as the Downing St. memos state, "C reported on his recent talks in Washington. There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable.
Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy. The NSC had no patience with the UN route, and no enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime's record. There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action."

So, NOW that you know that your government has spent billions of your hard earned dollars, and has killed tens of thousands of people all for the dollar and the ego, what are you going to do about it?
