Meanwhile in the "Pro-Life" war in Iraq: 38 more tortured bodies found


BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraqi police found 38 tortured bodies and witnessed the slow release of five hostages amidst general violence throughout Baghdad Thursday.

Iraqi police recovered the 38 bodies showing signs of torture in the capital city during a 24-hour period ending Thursday morning.


I honestly don't know how Tony Snow can live with himself. His smug, smarmy BS is over the line. With regard to the stem cell veto, he actually said: "The simple answer is he thinks murder's wrong, The president is not going to get on the slippery slope of taking something living and making it dead for the purposes of scientific research."



So a blastocyst (that is headed for a trash bin anyway) is more important to the President than 3,000 of our servicemen and countless Iraqi civilians AND "scientific research" does not rate as an excuse to "take something living and make it dead" but idiotic vanity wars are just peachy.

Rage Against the Right adds: More than 14,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq in the first half of this year, an ominous figure reflecting the fact that "killings, kidnappings and torture remain widespread" in the war-torn country, a United Nations report says.

Killings of civilians are on "an upward trend," with more than 5,800 deaths and more than 5,700 injuries reported in May and June alone, it says."

Comments:
You are so very right about this. I don't know why so many people who still support Bush and his radical politics, although with each passing day I think (and hope) he loses more support. Isn't this also back to the idea that religion and politics shouldn't influence one another? Bush seems to forget that his religious feelings (nevermind the fact that stem cells could possibly save and cure hundreds, even thousands of people) shouldn't come into play when making law in this country. Anyone up for Clinton to run as President again? I know I am.
 
I would not mind so much if Bush's religious views were not so much PR and lamebrained bumper stick nonsense designed to appeal to the witless.

I mean, if he ever decided to read the sermon on the mount and thought about it for 5 minutes, the country would be better off.

As for Clinton, hell yes. Where do I sign. I did not appreciate him at the time, but Bush makes Bill Clinton look like George Washington.

I hear you on that. What scares me most of all, after having had a conversation with a couple that came over last weekend, is that some people really support this war we are involved in because they want this country to be seen as the greatest power in the world. That in and of itself truly scares me. I don't think that's a valid reason for going into a country and forcing a government on them, while hiding the true reasons we are there behind the 9/11 attacks. It amazes me how many people still believe that that's why we are truthfully there. It was not Iraq that caused the fall of the towers...it was Osama Bin Laden. But you don't see too much about him in the papers anymore...only from time to time when he decides to release a videotape threatening the U.S. again. Sorry to rant...but sometimes I'm so frustrated by the way this whole thing is being handled. Don't even get me started on global warming and fossil fuels (see my blog).
 
If they want this country to be seen as the greatest power in the world, and they think this war is getting us there ,they are not not looking at the same war I am.

BTW - All rants are welcome - particularly when they are the starting point for political action.

How did you find Delawareliberal?
 
Honestly, I was just bored at work and sitting on the blogger site, watching the blogs that were recently updated come by, and happened to see it. And since I'm originally from Delaware (currently living in NJ), I was interested to see what you had to say. Most of the blogs I happen upon don't seem to be like this...and I'm all for anything that takes pokes at our current President and anyone who supports him.
 
Bush's only view is what his handlers prompt him to take.
 
Well welcome aboard. Don't get in trouble at work looking at blogs though.
 
Here are some links that I believe will be interested
