"What kind of fucktarded plan have we been half-assedly executing?"


This is a quote from a blog post by Sgt. Thomas Strickland aka Rev. Wayfarer, an American soldier in Iraq. Sadly, Sgt. Strickland died the other day in Iraq when the truck he was in overturned during combat.

Read his full post & the comments to the last couple of posts. Truly heartbreaking.

  • One sad irony about the Katrina Hurricane is that it'll seize momentum away from the growing antiwar movement.

    Like the hours immediately follwing 9/11, the chimp is clueless as to what to do. But mark my words: Rove and company are engineering an empathy blitz to rival that of post-9/11. It'll really come full force once the media images begin to focus on white middle-class good looking victims. So far, current photos capture mostly African American sitting on roofs or wading through flood waters. Indeed, much of the spin from the rightish media has been on looting videos, to wit last night's Tucker Carlson coverage focusing on a black cop engaged in looting.
